damaging effects which it

has been through one of the
most trying ordeals of your life,
and even if you have won over
the millions of disease germs
that threatened your life, the
effects of the attack are still
Your strength is about all
gone, and your vitalty is at a low
ebb. Experience has proven
that no disease leaves the sys
tem in a more run-down, debili
tated and depleted condition.
There is a soreness throughout
the body, a reminder of the tor
turing pains that you suffered;
the nerves are alll unstrung, and
your sense of weakness almost
borders upon complete helpless
ness. The system is "all shot to
pieces," resembling very , much
a war-stricken land that has

enemy. As soon as you are able

the important repair" that the
system "needs . to restore your
former robust vigor.
Nature is the great healer,
and when all hindering obstacles

source of all life, and it is
through this vital channel Jhat
the repair work must be done;
The one remedy that has
proven of such invaluable assis
tance in rebuilding the broken
down system after influenza or
lagrippe, is the well known blood
purifier and system tonic, S. S. S.
This standard preparation is rec
ognized as the most reliable ever
discovered, and its use through
out the length and breadth of the
land for more than fifty years,
is the strongest evidence of its
merit. S. S. S. is sold by drug
stores in every stafte in the
Those who are endeavoring

lagrippe will find S. S. S. of great
aid in restoring the system to

preparation, being made from
the medicinal roots and herbs of
the forests, and there is not a
particle of mineral in a thousand
bottles. ' It is nature's own rem

S. S. from any drug store.

is Represented at
At Miami By Dr. O. H. Cox
At the meeting-. the the Florida State
Medical Association,, being held In Miami,
May 20-22, both Inclusive, Pensacola is
represented by Dr. O. H. Cox, govern
ment specialist in the public health ser
vice, who has been spending some time
in Pensacola" - aiding ' In the sanitary
campaign being suceesfully carried on
here. - - '
. Before the assemblage Dr." Cox read
a -very interesting paper, much of which'
was a comprehensive review of his worn
here, which from time .to time has been
published, and In adultion his paper paid
high , compliment to the natural and
other advantages of Pensacola and con
tained other information of interest. Fol
lowing are some excerpts from the pa.
Organlzing For Community' Health.
"Mr. President and members of the
Florida State Medical Association: -
"My purpose for appearing before you
is several-fold. Sergeant General Kupert
Blue ordered me to attend to- represent
the U. S. Public-Healtj service.- -
"I have been on duty in the state six
teen months and have a fair acquain
tance with men, affairs, and events from
the point of view of sanitation. I count
the members of the state health organiza
tion and all the phvsicians as friends. 1
hail from West Florida now, and am
possibly the only representative here for
Pensacola and Escambia county.'
Organization For Health Work.
Nobody with a properly functioning
mind nowadays denies that sanitation
pays. How to prevent certain diseases
and ken up the general public health to
a better degree has become more than
a theory; . Therefore we have official or
ganizations for health. A brief sketcii
of these agencies may1 be used as a set
ting for further remarks;
- "The public health service in which
federal activities center Is mostly advis-'
ory and least executive when applied to
national domestic problems.
''State boards of health are more id
vlsory and less executive within their
own boundaries. No two are organized j
the same. . Local organizations are least
advisory and most executive or adminis
trative, and tb county is a comfortable
unit to handle. All have grown up from
an original idea of self-preservation, and
the local board of . health was the first
to organize. The others same Into being
as Interstate and international inter
national intercourse became more com
plex. . ' -
"In accordance with the provisions I
the federal constitution powers not ex
pressly delegated by that legal instrument
to the federal government are reserved
by the individual states' to themselves.
Therefore all laws of sanitation and pub
lee health must be in conformity with
state laws. There seems to be no reason
why the public health service should not
assist state boards of . health in raising
the standards of administration among
the local health organizations where most
executive authority lies. In this way all
are synchronized and have tne benefits of
special investigations and expert advice.
"Many of these theories of sovereignty
have gone by the board during the war
period or have been worked out in prac
tical affairs much to the advantage of
all concerned, it is believed. This is Il
lustrated by the methods followed for
sanitation in the extra-cantonment zones
all over the country. . .... . r
Methods Followed by U. S. Ppblic Health
"Official orders during the first wee
of February, 1919, transferring me from
the extra-cantonment zone of - Camp
Joseph E. Johnston at Jacksonville to
Pensacola, read in part, "You will confer
wiui state and local health officials with
a view to placing health activities on a
better basis. T'his may serve to illus
trate whaf ehouTa be the mutual attitude
of the three primary health organizations
whose duties we have sketched.".
Here Dr: Cox gave a full and compre
hrnsive review of the work In Pensacola,
Including the obstacles encountered an4
delays experienced before a great many
of the people became fully convinced of
the irreat importance of the campaign. -Other

FLORIDA WILL NOT
HAVE NEW STATE
HOUSE FOR WHILE
BY HERBERT FELKEL
Tallahassee, May 21. By a vote of
seventeen to twelve the senate today
failed to pass the bill appropriating
S.OO.OoO for remoedling and enlarging
the capitol building at Tallahassee,
and the same old statehouse wi'i nave
to do for another two years. In sup
port of the measure. Senator Lewry
exhibited the architects drawings in
colors of the proposed new building
with two additional wings on each
end, but with the same architectural
lines preserved. He eloquently pleaded
for the appropriation, declaring that
the departments were scattered
throughout the city because of the
congestion in the capitol not only
during the legislature but the yeaj
round. He said between - two and
three thousand dollars annually was
Iaid in rents by the state. All the
departments would he cared for in
the new structure, he said. Senator
Under New Management
Everything Good to Eat, Cooked Right
Igou also spoke in favor of the meas
Senator Russell declared this was
not the time to add to the statehouse
because of the high cost of building
materials. Senator Lowry replied that
the contract would not be let till after
the first of next year when prices of
materials were expected to come down.
Senator Russell's apposition was pure
ly on business grounds, he said. He
was not in favor of capital "removal,
however. - : :
Set the stages while the plants are
small, and as the- plants grow keep
them tied up. New shoots will grow
in the axils of the leaves, that is, at
the point where the lea yes join tne
stem. , Take out these new shoots
e-eryweek or ten days, or they will
delay the early ripening.
Set the plants three feet apart in
rows four feet apart if they are not i
to be staked but allowed to spread
over 0ie ground. Some vegetable
mulching material spread under these
plants will protect the fruit?" from
touching the ground.
' Tomatoes need rich soil, good cul
tivation and plenty of moisture. Noth

supply of manure than tomatoes. .

"At our suggestion the state sanitary
