The New Congress
The country is watching the new congress.
Important legislation must be enacted into law
to settle the perplexing and troublesome domes
tic problems that have received scant attention
in ttie last months while congress indulged in a
futile discussion of the peace treaty. The coun
try has made up its mind that it will not tolerate
protracted controversies engendered by parti
san feeling rather than a deep concern for the
welfare of the nation.
The country has a burdensome system of tax
ation from which it hopes to receive some relief
from the present congress. It believes economy
of the most strenuous kind should be the prin
cople on which all appropriation bills are based.
The country cannot go on indefinitely spending
money at a faster rate than it is raised by tax
ation and bond issues. Congrgess has the power
and opportunity to remedy this evil.
A budget system should be adopted without
delay. America is one of the few countries that
operates its financial system without such a
system. Both parties have pledged themselves
to the adoption of a budget system. The coun
try expects the enactment of this ; legislation.
The peace treaty should be disposed of. No
one will deny that a normal state of affairs is far
off so long as this important measure hangs fire.
Legislation pertaining to the railroads is also
needed. Under government control they have
piled up deficits in alarming amounts. Little
money has been spent for repairs and mainten
ance. The companies will be forced to expend
huge sums to bring their properties back to the
status in which they were when the government
took them over.
Stringent laws referring to immigration and
the control of aliens in our country are needed
and that badly. An alien may denounce our gov
ernment, plot against its institutions and offi
cials, interfere with the orderly processes of our
industries, and yet escape quick and decisive pun
ishment under the present laws. Americans
have tolerated this state of affairs long enough.
They are looking toward congress for action.
If the new congress wants to win a place for
itself in the history of our country, it has abund
ant opportunity. Constructive legislation of the
most vital importance awaits enactment into law.
The country wonders if its lawmakers are big
enough for the task.
What's in a Name?
Facts about your name: tta history;

(Copyright. 1919, by The Wheeler

Paradoxical as it is, the sweet name
of Mary means bitter. Mary is perhaps
the most prevalent name of all lang
uages, due in large degree to-religious
devotion to the Blessed Virgin. Indeed
there are so many Marys and so many
derivatives and diminutives of the
name, that each one requires separate
treatment and this article will be limit
ed to the simple M-a-r-y and its Eng
lish and French spellings,, Maria and
Marie. . , ' .
The first well-known bearer of the I
name was the sister of Moses and j
Aaron, who led. ... the, , songa of the
Israelites when they saw their enemies
dead upon the seashore. Though the
most honored name among women, it
13 one which has caused a great deal
of contention regarding Its source.
Some day it comes from meri (stub
bornness), others say that it is from
Marah (bitterness). The most poetical
explanation of all is that it comes from
the Latin and Teutonic mar, meaning
sea and hence Mary is "Star of the
The first Maria was a Spanish
maiden martyred by the Moors in 851.
However, the Spanish name Urraca
was identical with Maria and this
name flourishes in Spanish history
and ballad literature. The Infanta
Dona Urraca, or Maria, was prevented
from becoming Queen of France be
cause of "the uncouth sound of her
name Urraca, whereas, is she had lived
a century later, she might have been
called Queen Marie. Other famous
Marias were Maria of Antioch, wife
of Emperor Manuel; Maria, wife of the
Marquis of Montferrat; Marie, daugh
ter of Louis VII; Marie, translator of
Breton legends for Henry III, and
Marie, daughter of Edward I. The
actual name of Mary comes through
the French from the Blessed Virgin.
Mary's jewel is the moonstone,
whose mystic-qualities are most ap
propriate, as well as its close associa
tion with Heaven, reflecting as it does,
the waning of the moon. Mary's lucky
day is most fittingly the seventh day
Sunday, and 3 is her lucky number.
Scarcely a noet has neglected the
sweet name of Mary and one of the
most charming, written to a portrait
by Lord Byron, rnns:
''This faint resemblance of charms,
; Though strong as mortal art could
My constant heart of fear disarm?.
T Revives my hopes, and bids me live.

Which round thy snowy forehead

One time someone asked Mr. John D. Rockefeller how to become
wealthy, and he replied: "Save the pennies!"
I read In a newspaper recently that the will of the late Frank W.
Woolworth left an income of nearly half a million yearly to his wife!
Mr. Woolworth made his great fortune of around thirty millions, by
small sales in pennies made up of five and ten cent sales!
Henry Ford is the richest automobile manufacturer in the world.
His great fortune was conceived thru the idea of selling the simplest
made car for the smallest price.
It's the pennies, the pennies that count!
But the pennies must be SAVED. Nearly every day I pass by
a great bank and across its front squares of stone are engraved these
words: "Dime Savings Bank." I never pass this building without
thinking of all that that phrase Inspires.
Every human being should have. And every human being can
if he will., He can begin with pennies! For the first starting point
toward a million dollars is a penny!
Save five cents or ten cents a week to start out with. Then dou
ble this amount as soon as you are able. A very rich man once told
me that he began by saving ten cents a week. And as he told me this,
he showed me thru his great manufacturing plant the living evidence
that his plan paid.
Save your pennies for the minute that they are saved, they be
gin to save for you !

Then You Will Be Able to
Treat It Intelligently
The medical profession has
not yet fully determined all of
the causes of rheumatism,
though they are pretty well
agreed on two points.
The first is that the disease
is more than a mere local trou
ble, that the pangs of pain
come from a source that is far
below the surface, and therefore
it is not reasonable to expect
any rational relief from a treat
ment that is locally applied and
reaches only jthe surface.
When you realize the logic of
this conclusion, you will see that
you are really wasting your
time and money if you are ex
pecting any permanent relief
from the use of liniments, lo
tions, and other locally applied
treatment, which can only reach
the surface, and have no effect
whatever upon the origin of your
Any disease should be treat
ed at its source, and especially
one that causes as much suffer
ing as rheumatism. For what
you want is not mere temporary
relief from the torturing pangs
of pain, which will promptly re
turn with renewed severity.
The only treatment worth while
is one "that will show some pro
gress toward getting at the
source of the disease, and free
ing the victim from its shackles.
The other point that the medi
cal profession has agreed upon,
is that some forms of rheuma
tism are caused by a tiny disease
germ in the blood, which multi
plies by the million, and until
these germs are routed from the
blood, you can see how futile
local treatment will be. In fact,
you can rub with liniments and
use lotions by the gallon and
never hope to reach the cause of
your trouble.
So many "people have found
real permanent relief from their
rheumatism by the use of S. S.
S. that its use is justified in
practically every case. Certain
ly if your rheumatism is due to
a germ in the blood, as so many
thousands of cases are, you
should lose no time in beginning
the use of S. S. S., because you
can rely upon this fine old blood
remedy to do you more good
than any other treatment.
S. S. S. is beneficial in rheu
matism because it is such a thor
ough blood medicine. It cleans
es tho blood of all impurities, and
eradicates the germs which
cause rheumatism. The wonder
ful results it has accomplished
in other cases is proof of its
great merit. S. S. S. has been
on the market for more than
fifty years and is sold by all
