RANKIN for re-election to Congress from the First Contjrenional District of Mis f ir.iipi. puhject to the action of the Democratic part?. As to Payment of War Risk" Insurance. A move sponsored by bene ficiaries of war risk insurance is on foot to have the entire bene fit of the policies paid by the government in one sum, instead of equal installments paid month ly throughout a period of 20 years. The claims under a policy of $10,000 as the policy is written, inures in payments of $57.50 through 240 payments of 20 years which aggregate at the end of the period $13,800. The beneficiaries desire the equivalent of this amount to be paid in certificates, in such sums, considering the present worth of the payments, for the time at which each would become due, as would equal $13,800. Should Congress arrange the matter in this way, the benefic iaries claim the benefit would come to them in sufficient amount to exploit in business or to invest in. homes or in other ways that would benefit themj innrp th:in hv rpr-fdvinor it in I monthly payments under the ex isting plan. The advantages of receiving the benefits according to their plan is set out by the committee representing the beneficiaries un der five heads, as follows: 1. The full present cash value of the policy in the form of a negoti able obligation of the United States will be received by the policy hold er now. or whenever it is needed in the future, enabling the beneficiaries to u.-?e thin money or securing to buy and furnish a home, buy and equip a fijrm, start and maintain a businVss or strengthen some busi ness already existing. 2. It will enable many who are old or sick 1 1 have some of life's comforts now, as their soldier dead wished they might have. o. It will enable many younger brothers and sisters and other kin of the deceased heroes to get an ed ucation which will lit them for the enjoyment of useful lives and bet ter stsrve our beloved country. 4. It will put money into ac tive use and put the responsibility for its proper investment and use into the hands of thousands of us who wish to see our country grow and prosper, instead of having it doled out to them as pension pay ments for a period of 20 years. a. Fifth and of great importance. It will cost the government nothing more, but will, on the contrary, save many millions annually by eliminating the salaries of clerks now required to keep the records o alUbeneliciaries of the World War now on the Vetrans Hureau rolls. The primary purpose of war risk insurance is to provide for the loved ones of the soldier boys alter these boys haye crossed oyer the river, and, if their loved ones desire the benefit paid ac cording to their plan, since it would cost the government no more to do it in this way and would encourage thrift and en terprise on the part of the bene ficiaries, there seems no good reason whv the benefits should not be paid in this way.

Try the Progressive Farmer. years ago typhoid fever was our greatest plague ami most dreaded disease. We then had not less than 500 cases per year with 10 to 15 per cent, fatality. I myself treated over thirty cases one season, including one doctor, and in the end fell a victim to the disease myself. From March. 1921. to March, 1922. there were exactly forty cases in the coun ty, a great reduction you will see. hut the malady should be entirely eradicated from the county. Now let us figure on the saving in money not to mention the saving in suffer ing, anxiety, life and heartache. The U. S. Health Department has found that the average cost of typhoid fever is $200 per case. This includes doctor's bills, drug accounts, nurse's hire, lost time and burial expenses. This is a very conservative estimate; for while some cases cost less many cases cost much more. Three hun dred cases (and we had that many only a few years ago) at $200 per case, amounts to $00,000. Last year we had forty cases; at $200 per case our typhoid bill was $8,000 $60,000 less SS.000 shows a saving of 52,000 per year on typhoid alone. Is your -health department worth while? How was this improved condition brought about? First, by a campaign of education. With the unselfish and untiring co-operation of our more progressive and enlight ened'doctors, we have been able to teach the people that typhoid fever is not a visitation of God's provi dence, but the result of filth and ignorance. Of course there are many cases that do not reflect upon the decency and intelligency of the vic tim, but upon some one responsible in some way for the case. In such cases there is a criminal aspect; for we must realize that we are indeed "our brothers' keepers." But be sides education as to the cause of typhoid fever, we have taught the people that in vaccination they have a cheap, harmless and perfect pro tective, eyen for those who prefer to live in and subsist upon tilth. And in this connection, let me say that our State laboratory is maKing an effort to manufacture for free dis tribution sufficient vaccine to pro tect every citizen of the state. Your county health officer has requested vaccine for suppling eaoh of the thirty doctors in the county. Your own doctor will administer the three doses to you for a small fee. and all ) who will call at my -office and make request will receive protection at my hands free of any charge whatever. Under these circumstances, with a full knowledge of all the facts as set forth above, I believe that no one has the moral right to fail or refuse to render himself and his fam ily immune. A word to the doctors: The coun ty laboratory is thoroughly equip ped and able to make your Widal tests. So there is no excuse for mistakes in diagnosis of cases that may be suspicious, and no doctor can afford to depend on physical findings, unsupported by laboratory confirmation when it can be had so quickly, with so little trouble and absolutely without expense to you or your patient. We are anxious to serve you and promise prompt, faithful and pendable service. Yours For Humanitv, G S. Hkyan. County Health Officer St. Johns Church. Second Sunday after Easter.

The appointment of Gilson Gray, Jr., to an important place on the editoral staff of the New York Trib une, is gratifying to his many Ab erdeen friends.
