HOW HEROES ARE BEING CARED FOR Lack for Nothing on Return to This Country. Men Are Debarked From Transports. —Wounded and Sick Are Being Sent REASSURING TO HOME FOLK Army Surgeons and Red Cross Take Soldiers in Hand at Port of Debar kation—Relatives Are Notified After Home First. How are the sick and wounded sol diets, coming back to America In In creasing but happily not very large numbers, being cared for In that try lag period between their arrival on transports and their distribution llraong our widely scattered recon "ruction *ospuals? Is the govern "ent leaving anything to chance, omlt ting any service that might contribute to the patient's comfort or recovery? There Is a story in Ihe answer to t bese questions. It ought to be snp pk . mented aad 1Uustrated by sceD es described, so that he who reads coyild but cannot be »UI 1 the war department gives consent. But even as ft stands It Is a story reassuring to home folk wondering It all the way across the Atlantic and through the home port and on trains bound Inland or to th( . Pacific coast their boys are * ettl " B the treatme " t dMerve and Uncle Sam Is pledged to give. Sick to Come Home First. A great majority of the soldiers sailing to war passed through the port of New York, and through this port, whether well or disabled, will a great majority return. The army port of embarkation Is also the port of debarkation. Machinery built for swift dispatch of troops to Europe reverses itself, as it were, and distributes throughout America the soldiers whom it aforetime gathered up and propelled across the ocean. But before the companies and regi ments of the well, the unhurt, are started back from France all the wounded or sick will have come ahead of them. That is the war depart ment's policy, to bring home the sick and wounded firet. They are coming now and have been for some time, and after the shortest possible sojourn In debarkation hospitals are segregated and passed along to a reconstruction hospital as close as possible to their homes, there to be discharged If their condition warrants it, or to be treated for special disabilities, or to complete the period of convalescence. To receive these Incapacitated sol diers; to make smooth their hard path ; to be prepared for their coming; to make the distribution process swift, sure and merciful ; to see that every thing is provided for until the distant destination is reached—that is the co operative Job of the medical depart ment of the port of debarkation and the American Red Cross. So this 1* the story of how the Job is done. Offi cially It Is "the plan of bundling the sick returned from 'overseas service." The New York port of embarkation —and debarkation—really includes all the coast from Baltimore to Canada, but Its work Is directed from Hoboken. The surgeon of the port, who has charge of the reception and care of invalided troops, Is Col. James M. Ken nedy, medical corps, Ü. S. A. the sanitary adviser of the command ing general of the port, William V. Judson. Every Facility for Medical Care. The following facts were obtained from Colonel Kennedy and are official ; Sick and wounded soldiers are brought from Europe on army trans ports having every hospital facility. Each transport has normally a good sized hospital, which may be expanded to accommodate any number of men. Every patient has more than enough One of the great liners con He is room. verted Into a troopship may have carried 10,000 men to France, but as hospital ship It brings back only a thousand or so. The medical attend for the returning soldiers has a nee been uniformly satisfactory. The transport arrives off quaran tine. It is iKinrded there by two medi cal officers detailed for this purpose by the port surgeon. They ascertain •he number and classes of the sick, •he pier and hour at which the ship will dock. One of them stays aboard, arranging for debarkation. The other returns to the quarantine station and telephones his information to the office of the surgeon of the port in Hoboken. The surgeon then sends a harbor boat with a party of medical officers and men to the designated pier. He also notifies the Red ( ross, which turns up at the pier with all the supplies, food and drink needed by the soldiers about to land, and something If a soldier to spare for emergencies, has been sent over with nothing but hospital clothes the Red Cross In stantly provides him with a blanket ibe. linen, wool boots and crutches if he needs them, from the boat's equipment. Relatives Are Notified. dthout In terruption until completed unless It extends Into the night. The patients transferred without delay to the designated debarkation hospital, the Red Cross attendants remaining on the pier or transport and dispensing refreshments as required. In the hos pital (he sick or wounded claartfiad rapidly, as to the nature ad Debarkation continues are men are hospital to which they are to bo sent and their home address. "Every courtesy," said Colonel Ken nedy, "Is extender to parents and other relatives. At the debarkation hospital a Jeld director of the Bed Cross gets the name and address of the patient and his nearest relative. He theQ wrltea a letter to the relatl,re > notifying him of the arrival and con dltlon of the patient and whether or not It Is advisable for the relative to come. "Unless the case Is a very serious one' the letter also says that the patient will soon be transferred to a hospital lu the Interior, of which ac tion later notice will be given. No pa tients are discharged from the debar kation hospitals. They are sent to the hospital nearest their homes that is equipped for the treatment of their particular trouble. "As soon us the classification is com pleted at the debarkation hospital a report of the numbers In each class ...... and the reconstruction hospitals to which transfer is recommended is wired to Washington, trig received, transportation is ar ranged for. Red Cross Furnishes Food. Authority be "The Red C'ross canteen service fur nishes food and drink during the transfer from hospital to train and until the train leaves. So far as prac ticable the patients are carried from the port to the distant hospital on especially fitted hospital trains which have nospltal beds, a mess kitchen, an die:-»ting car, offices and other con venu avec'.' If the number of men Is too great for a hospital train standard Pullmans or Pullman sleepers are used. "When the patients are transported on these cars," said Colonel Kennedy, "feeding them becomes a more com plex problem than on hospital trains. To meet this problem a special organi zation of medical personnel Is in op eration whose training Is directed spe cifically along those lines. "No patients are allowed to travel without proper medical attendance and none who are unable to stand the travel. "Arrangement Is made with the Red Cross canteen service for assistance all along the route. Two days before the movement is begun full informa tion is given to the canteen head quarters of the Red dross In New York. It sends notice to Its canteen stations, so each knows just when the train Is due, the number of patients, the number of ambulant and Utter cases and of those uuable to leave the gr "In this manner complete co-opera tion is provided between the medical and the Red Cross services from the time the patients leave the hospital at the port until they are transferred to the designated reconstruction hospital, To guard ugalust unexpected delays from accidents or other causes each medical officer in charge of the train detachment Is required to have food for at least one meal for all his pa tlents held on the train in reserve."

"Positively, I never saw anybody improve like my wife has since she ... , „ started on lanlac; why she actually gained thirty-five pounds in only six weeks, and if that isn't a wonder 1 don't know what is," said Harry Clif ford, who is in the automobile business and lives at 735-A Crocker street, Los Angeles, the other day. "For over a year," he continued, "my wife was nothing but a nervous wreck. She had no appetite, and could eat nothing but the lightest kind of diet. Even that would disagree with her, and swell her up with gas that pressed so around her heart that she could hardly get her breath. She suf fered constantly from spells of ner vousness so that she could hardly sleep, and she would get up in the morning feeling so tired and depressed that she wouldn't be fit for a thing all day long. She used to weigh a hundred and twenty-five pounds, but she fell off in a short while till she was but a shadow of her former self, and got down to ninety pounds. She was los ing out day by day and became too weak to look after her household du ties. In fact, her condition was so serious that I felt uneasy lest she should go all to pieces. "Well, about six weeks ago 1 got a bottle of Tanlac for her, and now after taking only four bottles of the medicine, she looks like a different woman. Besides regaining all her lost weight, she can eat anything she wants without suffering the least bit of distress afterwards. Her nerves are in fine shape and she sleeps all night like a child. She never com plains of that gas trouble or of short i ness of breath, the headaches are all j gone and she says she is simply feel l j ng fine j n every way.

No matter what remedy you use, however, care must taken not to contract a second cold before you have recovered from the first one, and there is serious danger of this.
