among the juvenile population
of the city. This service 'is scheduled
for two-thirty o'clock on Sunday afternoon
at the Central Christian church
and is called a "String Service." Every
child is asked to bring a string as

string, the evangelist said last night,
a plow-line, fishing-line, hair-ribbon,
twine string?just so it is the prescribed
length.
Evangelist Brook? will lecture on
"Two Stairways" and Mr. Lewis will
sing one of his poular, gospel songs.
The children will be given reserved
scats, the older ones taking what is
left over.
Tomorrow morning Mr. Brooks will

Seventy-eisbt thousand one hundred '

oi in this city during the campaign j
which was waged previous to Christ- j
mas day under the direct supervision!
ot the Public Health Nursing Service.
Of this number 28,000 -were sold by the
school children of the city.
Ot the amount received from the sale !
of the little stickers the Public Health j
Service received the sum of $350. The ]
remainder of the proceeds goes to the i

This is by far the largest amount j
of seals ever disposed of in this city, j
Previous to this time an amount less I
than 50,000 were disposed of from year j
to year. The goal was set for 50.000 ]
this year and was eventually raised to i
75,000 and this rurther increased to the j

"One of the most difficult things

to change the habits, cf a sue mac. ,o
: yet a man to stop driukinr or to get
him to slop eating something that he

could ask of a people.
"If the Food Administration only
plays the tune of prices that is the
only tune they will get back. If the
Food Administration gets so that it is j

PINE-TAR-HONEY.
Prompt use of Dr. Bell's Pine-TarUoney
does more than break up your
cough. It may be the "ounce of prevention"
that saves you dangerous
sickness. Doctors declare the common
cold one of the serlons diseases,
with results like pneumonia and tuberculosis
which cause a large Dortion
of ituznaai mortality.
For years Dr. Bell's Pine-Tar-Honey j
lias been remarkably successful with
coughs, colds. grippe, croup and throat,
chest or bronchial troubles. Tims has !
proved its healing balsams wili
soothe and relieve irritation, breathing
will be easier, while its antiseptic
properties kill the germs which caused
infection and are retarding recovery.
Children like it.
That "putting oft treatment" is dangerous.
At the first sign of a cough,
start taking Dr. Bell's ftne-Tar-Honey.
