I can recommend "Fruit-a-tives" with a good heart to anybody." Mrs. EVALYN .ItADLIFF. In order to relieve Rheumatism, the blood must be purified.

SEPTEMBER 2, 1922. rrun r w w r -t w i . w www.-- A representative of the Massachusetts minimum wage commission finds from her investigations that a working girl can live on $0 a week, and for $1G a week can command not only the bare necessaries but many of the comforts and luxuries of life. The larger figure seems reasonable enough, if the luxury it represents is I not stressed unduly. As for the $9 a week, there will be a wide divergence of opinion. Unquestionably large numbers of girls in New England and elsewhere, do man age to exist on that amount, or less. How they do it, and what the effect is likely to be on posterity, is a different question. Less open to controversy is the in vestigator's statement that few working girls know how to spend their money. This accusation, indeed, may be brought against the big majority of people, in any level of society, but it is most im pressive in the case of the "poor work ing girl"' because the results with her are often so tragic. It is mainly a question of knowing values. The girl lives frugally, but not shrewdly. She may squander on clothing and skimp on food. Or she may buy the flashy and trashy clothing and food in stead of the substantial. She does not know values. Here is a field for helpful instruction that is broad and urgent No less im portant than earning a living wage is the ability to spend that wage so as to get the living. CURE AND PRIZE. A bill has been proposed in congress providing for the payment by the gov ernment of .$1,000,000 to the person who discovers a permanent cure for any one of the five following diseases ; tubercu losis, pneumonia, cancer, epilepsy and dementia praecox. The prospect of such a reward possibly might stimulate effort to find these cures, though it is .questionable. It is to the credit of those who strive in such fields that most of them need no other incen tive than love of their work and the welfare of the race to speed them on. On the other hand,' ?1,000,000 would be a small sum for the public to pay as a testimonial of its gratitude for a perma nent cure for any one of the diseases in question. Perhaps the chief drawback to the prize would be that it would go to one or two men while all the previous and si multaneous effort which contributed to their triumph would go unrewarded. Priceless as would be the service to hu manity in the discovery of these cures, it might be fairer if all the money that can be spared for the promotion of health should go to make research easier for all who follow its paths, and in placing the results more freely within the reach of all people. The public is prone to accuse the post office department ' of carelessness, especially when some piece of mail goes astray or is never heard from, but no one knows better than the workers in the postoffice department how careless the public may be in addressing its mail. Postoffice folks say that the most com mon error on the part of the public is the failure to put the address of the ' immt ill i sender on the upper left-hand corner, or on the back of the enveloie. If a mis take has been made in the address, there is no "comeback", as a "rule, outside of the dead-letter office when there is no return address on the piece of mail and that is something the postoffice cannot do for us. It is seldom that anyone in business bemoans a little free publicity, but not so with that of New York pencil peddler, so thriving that he has an automobile and chauffeur and rooms at a first-class hotel. He claims that the story of his prosperity which appeared in the news papers this week has practically ruined his business. The hay-feverites have dignified their disease by voting at their recent meeting at Bethlehem, N. II., to have it included in the incurable list and placed among those for which a prize of .$1,000,000 would be offered by congress for a cure, according to a bill recently presented. The St. Johnsbury Caledonian is of the opinion that the hold-up men. knew where to look for money when they took $400 away from a Shelburne meatman the other night as he was on his way home from an evening's business. Bennington had a fatal shooting ac cident this week, a boy of seven getting a bullet from a rifle in the hands of a boy of eleven. Such accidents are bound to happen ns long as boys of that age can get hold of loaded firearms. The ' Build Now" idea seems to have just reached the town of Dana, Mass., whert the first new house to be built in that town for 30 years has just been completed. It has got so it takes two licenses to get married these days, a marriage li cense and an automobile license. Will the regulation of the production of hot air come within the jurisdiction of the fuel administrators? A Wrong National Policy. (Rutland Herald.) The Herald does not believe in the proposed cash bonus plan, for the rea son that it will be of no lasting benefit to the war veterans. As for the Sim mons amendment, to apply the interest on our war debt to paying the cash de mands of the measure that is not only dealing in futures of the most uncertain character, but is expressive of an en tirely wronic national policy. We should forgive the w-ar debts of our allies, not fund them at a high rate of interest and give fresh cause for being called a dollar grabbing nation. If we are to have a two or six-billion-dollar cash bonus, let us levy an honest tax to provide for it. so that every one will contribute. Why (St. Albans Messenger.) A Washington dispatch says that Vermont has abandoned hone of eettine hard coal this winter. Why? -Even up in Canada omcials are confident of get ting Homo anthracite from the United States. Why, then, does Vermont aban don all hope? Why does she not stand up and insist that she get her fair share of whatever may be produced? If we have abandoned hope, Washington will go on the belief that we have acquiesced ana Wasnington will go ahead distribut ing to other states whatever hard coal may be produced. Get Out After It. (Springfield Reporter.) The St. Albans Messenger anxiously inquires, anent the coal and railroad strikes. "Have we grot to freeze here in Vermont this winter?"

The announcement that Vermont is to have no anthracite fuel in any event, suggests the question whether all other states are also to be without anthra cite, no matter how much is mined after the federal authorities begin to push things. If other states are to receive an allotment of coal, how does it hap pen that Vermont erets left out entirely in the shuffle? If Vermont must go Democratic in order to get attention in Washington, it is about time to begin to think whether it is better to stay Republican and freeze. r -... l 1 1 j Library News 1 f t fy Velt " THE CAR MANIA. - : V; Long ago, when I was walking, such exertion I found shocking, and the auto fans were mocking, as tliey gayly slithered past; so I mortgaged every chattel, and my house and string of cattle, like a' boob with brains a-rattle, and I owned a car at last. For two months or so my flivver made my heart with rapture quiver, then I learned to sigh and nhiver a I viewed my- rusty wain; for my neighbors were reclining in their autos bright and shining, decked 'with purple velvet lining and all sort of trimimngsvain. So -I bor rowed pound and shilling from all people who were willing, and my uncle made a killing, lending money on my junk, and today I'm bravely steaming in an auto nobly gleaming, like the cars you see when dreaming in your little downy bunk. But I know a car that's better, and I yearn, oh, donner wetter, for the day when I can get her, and look like an autocrat, and my kouI will ache with sorrow if I cannot steal or borrow coin to get the bus tomorrow or the next day after that. And I see myself proceeding in that car, perversely speeding; and my bosom will be bleeding from a yearning high and bold for another car that's slicker, -with a body made of wicker, and a patent duplex kicker, and a fan-belt edged with gold.

To the older generation of playgoers he will be recalled as the author of The Lights of London, Romany Rye, and other pieces that were highly popular when melodrama was in vogue some 25 years or more ago. In recent years Mr. Sims has contributed many other suc cessful plays to the English stage. Like most other playwrights, however, he had a hard Struggle before he attained sue- cess. In his own good-humored way he has recalled how his first effort at pro-l fessional playwriting was received by . one of the papers with the comment : "The name of the author does not ap pear, and if he have a reputation it will scarcely suffer by the omission."
