PORTO RICANS TRY TO CHECK USEOF TONICS San Juan, June 30. Efforts are be ing made by the Porto Hican au thorities to check the use as beverages of tonics, perfumes and lotions con taining: alcohol. The Insular treasurer, Jose C. Benedicto, and Dr. del Valle Sarrago, of the health department, re cently asked the house of representa tives to enact legislation to prevent the use of such concoctions as In toxicating drinks. Mr. Benedicto pointed out that it was legally permlssable to use alco hol for industrial purposes, under certain regulations, so that any Indi vidual could prepare a formula, have tt approved by the treasury and health lepartment and sell it freely through ut the island. Theoretically, these preparations were not for internal consumption and were harmful to the health, but in practice it had been found that they were being drunk In alarming quantities, he said. Their sale could not very well be stopped as they were permitted by law. "Before prohibition went into force here," said Mr. Benedicto, "the alco hol used for industrial purposes in Porto Rico amounted to between 7,000 nd 9,000 quarts a month, whereas luring last March no less than -52,000 juarts were used and In April, 56,000 luarts." There were two methods of dealing with the question through the legisla ture, said Mr. Benedicto. Either by teizing all those preparations which were being used as a drink, although manufactured under Insular permits, or by increasing the quarterly license to manufacturers to $200 Instead of the $25 now being proposed, which would enable only the larger firms to manufacture such preparations and would take them out of the reach of the general public Dr. del Valle informed the house of the measures which had already been adopted, to prevent the use of such tonics for drinking purposes. At first, he said wood alcohol had been intro duced into these preparations, but in view of the terrible effects It pro duced, this had been stopped, for they would simply be leading those peo ple who drank the preparations into total blindness. The other chemclals which had been introduced in order to make the lotions nauseous to the stomach, had not been very successful, for means had been found by the peo-' pie of filtering the liquids and other wise getting rid of such ingredients. It is declared that, although abso lute prohibition has been enforced in the Laland for a year, the police daily are discovering stills for the distilla tion of alcohol.

B TA Million Babies -and One Thir of Rnk Cheeks WHEN my doctor told me to give my baby Nestle's Food because I couldn't nurse him, I said, "Have many babies been brought up on it?" He smiled.

All over the world it's the same way and that will give you some idea of how many babies have kept well on Nestle's Food during the past fifty years."
