It Is hoped that the stamps-may be here

How .Gray's Syrup
Breaks Your Cough
In breaking up your cough and correcting the
accompanying ailments, you will find that
Gray's Syrup brings prompt relief In three
. distinct ways.
First, Immediately on taking Cray's Syrup the
dry, inflammatory condition of the throat It
eased. Swallowing becomes leu difficult and
the throat performs its natural functions In
Second. no matter how tight and dry a cough
Is, Cray's Syrup loosens it up. The counh
rapidly diminishes under consistent treatment
and does not attain bccomedlstresslnn; enough to
continue to strain the throat and lung muscles.
Third. the phlegm which collects on the
affected parts and dogs the tubes Is quickly
raised. The healing and soothing Influence of
Cray's Syrup coming Into direct contact vlth the
affected parts brings them back to their normal

ing tho presentation speech.
Mrs. Pearson was tho speiker of th
ifternnnn and sho brought to tho mem
bora of tho union a very Interesting ac
count of what other unions In tho Stat
aro doing. Sho spoke especially of th
Mtli anniversary of the W. C. T. U. which
is to be celebrated In 192-1 nnd for which,
plans arp being made. Sho said that In"
the last 45 years stupendous strides haij
been mado In the work and that now 4
countries nro organized for their worlt,
The aim as a celebration of the Jubilee o(
the organization, she said, was to raise
ono million dollars and to Increase thr
membership to one million or Just doubl
what it is to-day.
This million dollars has been divided ur
Into quotas for tho different States anl
Vermont's quota is $0,000. Chlttendencoun
ty'3 quota is $CtO and Burlington will ralst
most of that.
"It will be easy," said Mrs. Pearson,
to raise this money for we have learned
to gls'e In these last years of the war.
This money will bo divided principally
into five parts; S150.000 will he devoted ta
Child Welfare work; $100,000 will bo useil
In moral education.
"There Is a great need for this for the
war showed us that a great moral leprosy
existed, among our young people. Th
sum of $20H,fmo will bo devoted to Amer
icanization and with this amount 50 wom
en will be sent nut as workers along this
line. Then $.100,000 will go toward working
for world-wide prohibition. This Is a real
necessity for as tho brewers and distil
lers aro being driven out of our country
they will go Into the other countries of tho
world and Christian America has no right
to allow such mi' evil to go from her
shores to thoso of tho less fortunate coun
tries. Smaller amounts will go for other
purposes but the whole million will ha
placed where It will do tho most good."
