SPEAKS FOR MEASURE
William W.
Know les in bis oddress to the State
Senate yesterday analyzed the two
prlncipal arguments advanced against
ihe Initiative and Referendum amend
me ; , t. whlch , h " p f ,8Pd th * Hoa8P
and is now In Senate committee. Mr.
Knowles in part said;
'There are two objections that have
been urged against the Amendment to
the Constitution of this State provld
ing for the initiative and lieferen
„ • , . .
-The first object,on is urged by he
enemtes of he Amendment on ho
ground If adopted, It will enable the
people of Wilmington and New Castle
county to legislate for the whole
State and w ill thereby place Sussex
and Kent counties wholely at the
mercy of New Castle county.
"Thls objection lias no foundation
In fact, liiere is not a single valid
reason that can be urged against the
measure on that ground, but It is
simply put forth as an appeal to the
prejudices of the people of the two
lower rouiities with tile hope that, the
legislators ol I lo se two sections of
our Slate may bo driven Into violent
opposition to the Amendment.
"It must he remembered, ignorantly
or wisely, he who attempts to array
one section of this State against
another, or who will attempt \o excite
the prejudices of the people of the
I two lower counties against the people
;of New Castle county and the city of
.Wilmington without adequate reason
lean be nothing less than a Benedict
Arno *d
• The Fifteenth Section of the
'Amendment clearly gives to each
county the right to decide and vote
■upon the measures affecting such
1 county. Whatever measure might be
voted for on behalf of New Castle
.county would no be voted for m eith
,er of the other two counties. Under

will find that IN THREE DATS—Jt'ST THREE DATS—the »ick one*
will he up and well, and n°t one of the others will have a trace of
the disease. I opened my eye* and replied, do you perform miracle*
now-a-dnys, Mr. Jackson? I can do nothing, he said, hut Brazilian
Balm will kill every Scarlet Fever germ In three days and prevent 2*
well as cure If yon will only give It falthfuly, and give nothing else,
»'ell, I believed him, for 1 knew him well, and that he wa* a good
and c°nsflientlous man, and 1 followed hls directions to the letter.
And behold, on Thursday morning, just three days afterwards, those
two dreadfully sick children jumped out of bed and said they were
wffii and they were. And not one of the other children had a symp
tom! 1 kept on givng them all four or five doses a day for a week
to make sure, and that was the wonderful end of the trouble. There
w*re no sore eyes throat or ears or other after evil effects—every
ircrui was killed, and all trace of the disease g<tec. It surely Is the
most wonderful remedy ever discovered, I have tried ft for almost
everything, even Smallpox, and It Tiever failed me yet." Yfrs. Mnry
Robinson Hunt, Indianapolis.
It 1* surprising that there should be IS cases of Scarlet Fever, a*
reported, in »'llmington, when everyb°dy knows of Brazilian Balm
and what it wfll do in Typhoid and Contagious diseases. Friends, get
the 50e or 11 bottle, which have all the rlrenlars around them, and
READ THE CIRCULARS, and the testimonials. The doctors can
neither prevent nor eure Scarlet Fever, Measles, or any other Germ
disease. They do not pretend to. Neither can they prevent blind
deafness from these diseases. The country I« full of blind

and deaf and dumb victim* of these risease* which prove It.
Ing on earth can sorely prevent these calamities save Brazilian Balm.
Y'on ran stamp °nt the epidemic In a week If everybody will resort
to «be Balm. With this yon do not need hospitals or quarantine, for
under It* magic power yonr children can nrither take nor give the
disease. SAVE YOUR CHILDREN! All druggists.
