Ncthlsj could better demonstrate tha vxlue of advertism than the. wonderful success of The Journal's eocifaj school, which has been con ducted for the past 'week by : Mrs. Ettty Lyles Wilson, of Nashville, Eich day during this demonstra tion The Journal has carried & double rrs display story tanked by. adver ting: of the products which were dis- jtzyti la tha various booths" at the demonstration which always followed vzi preceded Mrs. Wilson's lectures. Ari it is safe to say that this story czi these advertisements were read by every woman In Pensaeola. they found them both valuable s.r.1 iztrrtstlnjj was evidenced by the crzrrli Trho ' Cocked to the cooking: ? txlscl crrr afternoon. "Women went heitt'ers the opening of the school tl tzt pitiently waiting that a good r:t r-Jsht be secured. Trix such large crowds It was nat trl that there should hare been more cr l:rj confusion, but In spite of the tzzt tlit those on the rear seats could not always hear, . they ; remained through the entire lecture each day, fcr there was so much of value to be gleaned from the ..demonstrations tr.i from the dishes that were sam ple i by the housekeepers after the lec'.-rts. . TI.3 Journal feels not only that it 1. 3 rrcrsnted . its readers .with rr.j c lectures which have been of C.3 greatest value, but it feels that It has fully demonstrated the value of advertising, in the results which have been accomplished and the crowds which were drawn through these advertisements to the cooking school each day during Mrs. Wilson's . . . ' Pdhra Can Now be Cured and Prevented. Arzounccr-icst was made at the trtrruxy department recently as a rei suit ef continued research and ' ex- ' perinsrts of the public health serv ica, both the cause and the cure of pellagra have been discovered," and that the spread of this dread malady, IMPORTANT MATTER FOR THE EARLY (CONSIDERATION COU NTY COMMISSIONERS. , The Journal has always advocated the building of . a bridge atFerry Pass just as soon as the finances of the counties interested will permit of t. This idea has been uppermost in The Journal's editorial department for. several years past. We see no. reason for changing it now., , : However, The Journal has brought another matter to the attention of soma cf the county commissioners of. Escambia ,and Santa Rosa: counties dzrlzj the recent fast which appears to offer a splendid solution of the question of crossing the upper bay, at least for the present. The idea Is for the two countiesEscambia and Sinta Rosa to get together on a proposition to buy a model ferry boat, dredge out the sand bars lying directly between Floridatown and Ferry Pass sathat a direct channel will connect with both sides. Then place the necessary two or' three men on the boat to operate it well, reduce the tolls to a minimum and operate the ferry as an institution belonging to the counties. The tolls thus derived , would pay the operating expenses of the ferry boat and the upkeep. ; The ferry could make the trip across the bay in something like .twenty minutes. That would bl about equal to the time required to cross the bridge if a bridge should be built. The ferry tolls could be reduced by -the counties so . as to make crossing a mere matter of a few jitneys and the channel being dredged at a cost of less than $1,000 would shorten the distance between Florida- town and Ferry Pass considerably.' V'fv. ::r''-(.'''-l-::'S The necessary wharves, boat and equipment could be put in for about $10,000. This js no considerable sum when it is considered that two of West Florida's richest and most fertile, counties are to bear it jointly, v '; la this way travel across the ferry would be greatly increased and there would be such a communication between the two counties as has never been. .fr .v .-i,;' . &v.C'-';:;::xi :yi.'vv-'-'i..-':y r-- The adoption of the route of the "Old Spanish Trail" from- Marianna to Pensaeola as the site for the great West Florida highway makes the matter of modern conveniences for crossing the bay at Floridatown a burning question. . .. t J .-. ' If the two counties will get together on this matter, and The Journal believes they will, the franchise of the present ferry at Floridatown can be purchased by the counties from the present owner and , a modern two- story ferry boat placed in the service. U ' " i The Journal believes that for the 'present at 'least this is the most practicable way to go at this important matter. It has been made doubly important by the happenings ff the last few days. 1 The .West Florida Highway will surely be built. The most direet route for this highway, is via Milton,5 Floridatown snd Pensacola. " In fact that is the only real direct route from .Tallahassee and Marianna to Pensaeola. If the" crossing of the bay at Floridatown is arranged so that there will be no hitches in; handling the business that will naturally go there in con sequence of the highway no obstacle will be left in the way of the enter prise. . . . The county commissioners of Gadsden and Jackson counties have agreed upon a splendid plan to'operate a good ferry boat over the Apa- lachicola river. They will also Duild a number of very costly bridges through the swamp. In that way there will be nothing to mar an auto trip from Pensaeola to South Florida and vice versa. The Journal believes that Escambia and Santa Rosa counties can and will get together upon a plan to operate a jointly-owned ferry boat be tween Ferry Pass and Floridatown. , . . From what some of the county commissioners of these counties have a'ready said there seems to be no material opposition to the scheme. It should be taken up and acted upon immediately. - ' TERSE COMMENT ON VARIOUS SUBJECTS My Fellow Countrymen."

Pellagra has been Increasing alarm Insly throughout the United States dzrlng the last eight years, and it' is estimated that 75,000 cases of the disease -vjill have occurred in the United States in 1915, - and of this aumber at least 7,500 will have died before the end of the year. Jn many . sections only tuberculosis and pneu monia exceed it as a cause of death. The final epoch-making experiment of the public health service was car ried out at the farm of tie ITississippi stxta penitentiary about eight miles ' east of Jackson, Miss., and together with the previous work of the serv ice completes the chain . in the pre vtntion and cure of the disease. Tha work at the Mississippi farm has been in charge of Surgeon Joseph Gold berger and Assistant Surgeon G. A. Wheeler, of the United States Public Health Service. The farm consists of 3,200 acres in the center of which is the convict camp. The final experi ment was undertaken for the purpose of testing the possibility of producing pellagra in healthy human white adult males by a restricted, one-sided, mainly carbo-hydrate (cereal) diet. Of eleven convicts who volunteered for, this experiment, six developed a typical dermatitis and mild nervouB gastro-Intestinal symptoms. Experts, including Dr. E. H. Gallo way, the secretary of the Mississipp State Eoard of Health; Dr. Nolan ' Stewart, formerly superintendent of the Mississippi State Hospital for the Insane at Jackson; Dr. Marcus Hause pressor of dermatology, Medical . CcHje of' the University of Tennes see, Memphis, Term., and Dr. Martin R.(Ecgman, professor of dermatology- in the Washington Medical School, St Louis,, Mo., declare that the disease which was produced was; true pella gra.V ; ' ' -. x :' Prior to the commencement : of these experiments no history could be found of the occurrence of pellagra on the penitentiary farm. On this farm are- 7& or 80 convicts. Governor Earl Brewer offered to pardon twelve of the convicts who would volunteer, for the experiment. They were as sured that they would receive proper care throughout the experiment, anc treatment should it be necessary. The diet given was bountiful and more than sufficient to sustain life. It dif fered from that given the other con victs merely in the absence of meats, milk, eggs, beans, peas, and similar proteid foods. In every other particu- arthe convicts selected for the ex periment were treated exactly I as were the remaining convicts. They had the same 'routine work and dis cipline, the same periods of recrea tion and the same water to drink. Their quarters were better than those of the -other convicts. The diet given them consisted of biscuits, fried mush, grits and brown gravy, syrup, . corn bread, cabbage, sweet potatoes, rice, collards and coffee with sugar. All components of the dietary were of the best quality and were properly cook ed.

It says: ' "Sci entists assure ; us that the human body contains just , three ounces of sugar. When a young man calls his 140-pound best girl his 'darling sugar lump' he misses the mark only 139 pounds and 13 ounces." Clearwater Sun.

Get your city right and all-these desirable 'things shall be added unto you." ' - ALICE SHEAR. Pensacola's Commission. t It Is indeed good, - according to Holy Writ, for brethren to dwell to gether in peace and unity, and we are reminded of this declaration by the fact that Pensacola's far-famed com mission, working with the Pensaeola newspapers and an Escambia county grand jury, has brought the millen nial dawn near the Deep Water City. In fact, the dawn was expected for a long time but somehow it failed to make connection and turned in the direction of Mexico, which is some what more' peaceful than .Pensaeola seems to be at present. '' Inspired by a spirit of brotherly love, also by The Journal and News, the grand jurors recently, concluded that they would hold an old-time "love feast ' in the house of the com missioners, and proceeded to pay a 4pop call." Being as we are entirely outclassed by King David and Ton Watson, we consider ourselves miser ably incapable of telling what hap pened when that "love feast" was well under way. On that' account we humbly retire in favor of The Pensa' cola Journal and the Escambia coun ty grand jury. Tampa Times, i Smithwick. Hon. J. H. Smithwick, -of Pensa eola, is a candidate for congress from the Third district. : While it had been known for some months that Mr. Smithwick was a candidate for the high office it was not until recently that he authorized the formal an nouncement of his candidacy. . At the proper time he will issue a statement setting forth clearly exactly where he stands on every question now be fore the 7 people, as well as some which he desires to place before them. In other words Mr. Smithwick intends inejeting some issues into, the cam paign, believing that , the public should know where a man stands be fore being asked to support him for such an, important office. The Pensacolian intends futher- more to make a vigorous campaign. When the proper time arrives he will get out in the district and intends making one of the most thorough campaigns that has ever been made by a candidate ' for :. congress. Mr. Smithwick has a large number of friends, not alone in Pensaeola, but in every county of the district and they are supporting him for the im portant office. St. Andrews ' .Bay News. , .

From the Manchester Guardian (Eng.) we learn that a wounded of ficer wrote that a day before" great attack a curious thing happened. Yes; very curious indeed. In fact, one of the most curious incidents of the war. And, wemight add, one of the most thought-provoking. "" The of ficers story has it that a board was hoisted In the German trenches bear ing the inscription: i "The English are fools." At first, according to the officer, it was thought that the Germans were striving merely to "annoy' the Tom' mies, so no attention was paid to the board. A few minutes later, the board reappeared again with this in scnption: - "The French are Fools." ' This, like the first, was ignored. Then, as a climax, came a third line: "WE are fools." Every soldier was Immediately In terested. The board then carried final inscription: "Why not all go home?" There are some thinking soldiers in Europe. That, it seems, to us, Is ap parent. They are fighting . because they are forced to, obey the commands of their tyrannical rulers, but the beginnings of Intelligent revolt seem to be finding places in which to grow. Some day, the soldiers will come to the point where they will see the fol ly 'of war. The absurdity of it all will drive them to an appreciation of their fellow man, even though . the other fellow may come from another country. And when that conscious ness becomes general, the rulers will be left to do the lighting, while the soldiers win gracefully retire to the noble and , som-bmlding pursuits o peace.- .-'.:v -v.,. ,:'"r ; .

Watch out for those falls and bumps but of course in a quiet way. After a child has had a fall, perhaps at his next bath, notice whether he seems to flinch when slight pressure is made around the back of the neck, or just under the back of the head, or under the ears, or at any place along the back-bone or , over the sternum. In this way slight bony twists may.be rec ognized at a very early time, and one visit to an osteopathic phy sician may prevent a great deal of trouble, later. Louisa Burns, M. S., .D. in the Osteopathic Magazine. Osteopathy differs from the old methods of treatment most : radically in its theory of the CAUSE of diseases. It emphasizes the importance of DISTURBED POSTTION of any of the tis sues of the body. - y ; From the osteopathic viewpoint the least displacement in the position of any tissue must sooner or later result in an ab normal or diseased condition. Osteopathic manipulation is to RE-ADJUST these displace- men Is and to restore the tissues to their PROPER POSITION ' so that Nature may resume its normal activity. In the removal of these obstructions which irritate and hin der the circulation of the vital fluids and forces lies the secret of . the success of osteopathy in the treatment of disease. Percy H.
