The tonio qualities of Peruna, com bined with the laxative qualities, make It an Ideal remedy for such cases. The liver and digestion are stimulated at the same time the bow els are regulated. We are getting favorable reports from all parts of the country of this class of cases. Mrs. Mary Shanks, Box 825, Mar shall, Oklahoma, writes: "Peruna Is the best medicine on earth.

WHY (IMS HIKE WHY OF "THE OFEHI11" [Continued From First Page] vice Intensified; that license is a flat failure; while annihilation does not annihilate but favors clandestine vice. It is liquor which of all the causes of prostitution which Mr. Funk most bitterljvarraigns. He declares It to be the veritable handmaiden of vice and that the only way of dealing commer cialized vice is by drifting out of busi ness the liquor dealer. Mr. Funk also takes the position that the matter of preventing vice is up to the police. He says In full: "THE OPEN DOOR" By J. Clarence Funk "In these days of intense publicity directed towards a subject which ten, ! even five, years aso was looked upon as flt only to discuss in professional gatherings, one should stop a moment to discover whether or not that which 'is now so boldly flaunted In the news papers. magazines and from the lec ture platform is really as bad as is suggested, and whether the remedies mentioned, or those which have been adopted are, after all. of real value. "If there Is any excuse for filling the public print with articles that offend modesty, and which tend to engage the attention not only of the mature but also the youth of our land, it lies in the hope that the knowledge of con ditions will protect innocence and bring forth an effective remedy. If these objects are not to be attained, the subject would better be left bur led deep in the grave of "false mod esty and criminal indifference." "White Slavery" "To-day the term *white slavery' is common, so common indeed that sohool girls and boys fully appreciate its significance, which is saying much. But. though the term is generally used, it is as generally misapplied. In stances there are, undoubtedly, where virtue has been betrayed by means of the padlock, but such cases even In the large cities are much fewer than popular opinion imagines them to be. There are reasons for this. In the first place the market is already j stocked with willing victims, making the adoption of desperate measures unnecessary. From the public (lance I hall to a serious wickedness Is but a >U>p, ami this path Is traveled by thou sands each year. Stores and factories, with their stunting influences, throw upon the night hundreds of girls who will seize upon the slightest thing that promises diversion; which only too frequently leads to resorts of ques tionable character In company with disreputable male companions. Again, there are many young women who by reason of their tendencies seem natu rally to fall Into "the life." Prostitu tion is recognized as the 'feminine equivalent of criminality In the male, satisfying the characteristics of the criminal.' The Common Thing "Literature which would have shock ed French realists in days gone by; moving pictures Inexcusably salacious; | the motorcycle with its rear seat, in viting the young girls into loneiy and unfrequented spots; and the common and notorious agency of the 'joy-ride,' ] are to-day doing much of the work | accredited to white slavers. We must | therefore, distinguish between white (slavery and prostitution; the former lis the exception, the latter common. "Admirable as Its purpose is, and effective as it has proved to be under the efficient direction of the United States Special Commissioner for the Suppression of the White Slave Traf fic, the so-called 'Mann Act," which punishes interstate commerce in wo men and girls, with or without their consent, plays but a part in the at tempt to remedy the evil in general. The great disease is a matter entire ly within the jurisdiction of the States and presents itself in the form of public prostitution. "Much has been heard of vice com missions, Investigations into police graft and control, the low-wage scale, reclamation, segregation, license, quarantine and annihilation. Results of Different Methods "Quarantine, which is policing a house so closely that none can enter, has been effective merely in driving the evil to different parts of the city; thus plaguing not one or more large spots, but many small ones. Segrega tion, which marks off an area ln which all of the unfortunate women must live subject to police restriction, has served to turn prostitution into its worst state—vice centralized means vice intensified. Annihilation, which as the term implies, is the complete removal of resorts, does not annihi late; cn the contrary it increases clandestine prostitution.

Xo Suitable Plan i though the vice commis sions have generally concluded that tne evil is widespread and must be stopped, they have, as yet, apparently not been able to discover a suitable plan to lessen the scourge. In short, the remedies so far applied have la mentably failed, and the logical con clusion is that they failed because i.n vvero »°t the proper ones. Prostitutes are subjects for su preme pity—unfortunate, outcast, and ror the most part Irreclaimable unless directed towards Bond Influences earlv in their careers. The life in a few j ears makes neuresthenics of them, and their condition becomes patholo gical, gome there are who claim thev are not past saving, but If this be so. the methods of accomplishment have, as yet, not shown actual results. The argument that many women leave the lite voluntarily, and because of mar riage or for other reasons return to honorable conditions, is scarcely a reason for believing that those who remain would yield to reformative in fluences. Girls Have "Friends" Almost universally, though thev ? , deny these girls have friends upon whom they lavish their distorted ideas of affection, giving n, 1 ? 1 their earnings, and sometimes willingly receiving curses and blows In exchange. Undoubtedly there is a system of procuration used by these 'friends,' ror they compose the 'cadet' class; but the point to be emphasized is, that this system is not directed towards in nocence and virtue, but towards sub jects who either are already in the life or, by reason of home conditions, in nato character or force of clrcum stances, lend a ready ear to advance ments. It does, and always will, go hand In hand with prostitution. Cure Rests With Police For the curative standpoint, the laws already upon the statute books are In a general way sufficient provid lng they are properly enforced. A civil service police organization free from graft and influence of the 'men !• .. er Y p '' wou 'd give the application . m 6 a tr emendous force. 'The real question, then, before the American city to-day is. what can we ..I?. stop the mak ing of prostitutes? "Ith all of our vaunted progress and civilization, an observer can not but notice demoralizing Influences in our conventions. For example, the dance of to-day engeged in by society, and imitated In private and public (lanrv halls, is immodest, to say the least. The predominating element in the steps is one of sex appeal. Esthe tics and grace are forgotten anti quated Coupled with this is the state of dress, or rather undress, which draws little distinction between the girl and the demimonde. When this Is considered, one needs not seek for a reason for the present 'tango' madness. Undoubtedly a certain amount of protection is afforded the society girl, for the men In her own set, dissolute as some of them may be, will generally let her alone, see'king instead the attractive side street-girl for whom they have no concern or re spect. But the power of form and custom thus established permeates the lower strata, and the public dance hall becomes, bad as It was at best, one of the great agencies in the demoraliza tion of young, womanhood. Cigaret Smoking "Cigaret smoking among the 'best' wo m e n m our large cities is becoming alarming, and their lesser sisters by power of imitation, are taking to the habit. Cosmetic* are now being used with a boldness and generality that was comparatively unknown off the stage a few years ago. In short, the shrine of sense-and-sex to-day stands high in the regard of American civili zation. "It is not fair to say that the coun try is in a retrogressive state, but It appears that though we are placing much stress upon the humanities in legislation, and in the practical appli cation in the spirit of the brother hood of man, the individual has tem porarily lost sight of himself, with the demoralizing conditions already noted as a result. , The intelligent mother must realize the duty she owes not onlv to her own daughter, but also to the daugh ters of others, who will be influenced by her judgment, or the lack of it. The place above all others for modesty and other protective elements of char acter to be formed, is in the homo; and if the woman of social position continues in her indiscretions of dress and conduct, little blame can logically attach to those who follow in her train. Curfew a Crying Need The curfew is a crying need, par ticularly in the smaller cities and towns. Between the hours of eight and eleven young girls can be seen in numbers promenading the main thor oughfares, and for no good purpose Here is the field in which the 'cadet'' works, making the acquaintance of the unprotected: thus frequently leading in a comparatively short while to the 'open door.' If parents will not keep their children at home of their own accord, the law should compel them to do so. "Education, unquestionably, is also a main factor, one of the greatest. There is no desire to depreciate the power of publicity and methods which might be styled sensational; they have been, and will continue to be, of un told value. Not only is this true with reference to the city, but its force has been most definitely felt in rural dis tricts. The farmer and his wife, by reason of their acquaintance with the subject through the press, are going to be less trustful of the man or wo man who seeks their daughter for a 'good Job in the city.' Liquor the Pillar of "Open Door" "But the pillar upon which this whole unsavory business rests is liquor In eight-tenths of the open-door houses, liquor is sold in direct viola tion of law. For jt the proprietress obtains large prices without which revenue she declares she 'could not keep her house going.' Fully sixty per cent, of 'the trade' buy beer or whisky from her. Of this number forty-five per cent, would not go near the house if they had not already indulged; and it is safe to say that few, if anv, who visit these places after having already imbibed, cease drinking when they enter. The fact is, that the real drinking begins only then. Fifteen of the sixty per cent, possibly, visit places of 111-repute only to drink after they are Inside. This leaves forty per cent, who have nothing to do with liquor, and who, therefore, unlmpelled by Its force, avail themselves of the second floor privileges; which mani festly is too small a percentage to I make these resorts paying proposi tions.
