GUARD YOUR
CHILDREN'S
HEALTH!
Future Physical Condition Depends
v on Health During Childhood
Days.
Healthy Children Red-Blooded.
Pepto-Mangan Restores Pale, Thin,
AnemicT Children to Normal
Vigorousness.
j
Parents with the best interests of
their children's health and happiness
, uu 4 -u ■ u u
at heart ,watch their children very
, 3
carefully during the years when the
foundation for future health is being:
laid.
Prompt attention should be given j
the boy or girl who seems listless, :
who doesn't laugh, romp and play like,
other children, whose appetite is poor, !
and whose body is under-developed, j
The condition of such children is often j
caused by thin, improverished blood, j
Good health depends upon good blood, j
If the blood lacks the necessary rich-:
ness to supply the body with nour- j
ishment, good health is impossible. j
Gude's Pepto-Mangan is particular-!
ly beneficial to pale, thin, listless chil-j
dren. Pepto-Mangan is exceedingly!
pleasant to take—no child will refuse !
it, and it soon increases the supply of j
rich, healthy blood, creating thous
ands of the tiny red-blood cells that
carry vigor to every part of the body.
Pepto-Mangan is prepared in tablet
" as well as liquid form. Both possess
exactly the same medicinal qualities, j
GudeV' is the only genuine Pepto- [
Mangan. Look for the name "Gude's" ;
on the package. If it is not there, it
(Adv.)
it
is not Pepto-Mangan.

Killed by Poisons
All scientists agree that poisonous
products in the blood are eliminated by
the kidneys and liver. The kidneys act
as a kind of , filter for these products.
When the kidneys are changed or de
generated, by disease Or old age, then
these poisons are retained in the body.
Dr. Pierce of the Invalids' Hotel, Buffalp,
N. Y., says that you should drink plenty of
water to flush the kidneys. Then procure
Anuric. This Anuric drives the uric acid
out. Scientific men have learned that in
gout, also rheumatism, poisonous uric
acid crystals are deposited in or about
the joints, in the muscles—where in
flammation is set up.
Geneva, Ark.:—"I had a bad spell of
kidney and bladder trouble. Was in a
sanitarium twice and had medicine from
two doctors and took four or five different
kinds of kidney and bladder medicines.
I then bought Anuric Tablets, and I
am cured sound and well—have no
symptoms of my old trouble. Can walle
two miles and back and do my housework
and washing, am 'tough as a pine knot.'
Anuric is the best medicine I ever tried
My husband, too, says it is fine."—M rs.

where nearly a million people are
suffering from disease and starvation.
Miss Andrees had returned to this
country after serving for the Red
Cross, but when s&e read of the sad
plight of the Armenians, she at once
offered her services to Near East Re
lief, the former American Committee
on Armenian and Syrian Relief, which
already has saved thousands of lives
Id Western Asia. Miss Andrees is the
only American woman war worker
who was awarded the Distinguished
Service Medal by Congress. Most of
the other members of her party like
wise served with honor for the Red
Cross and other war service organl
I cations. . j
Among the other members ot. the !
group are the Misses Frances and
Betty Anderson of New Canaan, Coun.,
who were decorated with the Croix de
Guerre by the French Government ;
Miss Margaret Milne of Washington,
D. C., who was a member of the
Hoover Relief Commission for Ru
mania, and Miss Alex Sidney, an Eng
lish woman who served for three years
with the British Relief Commission In
Serbia. Miss Doris Nevin, another
member of the party, is a daughter
of the late Ethelbert Nevin, the com
poser.
Col. William N. Haskell, commis
sioner to the Near East for the Paris
Peace Commission and official repre
sentative of the Near East Relief, has
cabled that the relief workers now in
the field are overwhelmed by the mag
nitude of their task. Col. Haskell says
800,000 Armenians will starve before
the next harvest unless they are given
aid and 120,000 orphan children face
death from hunger and exposure.
Thousands of refugees are dally be
ing brought to the relief centers from
the deserts.

"In accepting your Invitation
to become a member of the Ex

reluctance, but out of a sense of
duty towards one of the most
difficult situations In Europe.
Until some political settlement
can be obtained for the Near

tablished in responsibility for
the care and .epatriatlon of the
Armenian population In the Cau
casus, this mass of peoiÿe must
live sheerly by the charity of the
United States. There are In the
Caucasus approximately 1,800,

are entirely destitut
from Turkey—and amongst them
a tremendous mass of children.
"I cannot too strongly urge
