Victims of the Drug Habit. According to a recent estimate of the United States public health serv ice, the number of persons in this country who are victims of the drug habit is about 70,000, and the number of doses of narcotic drugs consumed by them annually is about 850,000,000. This estimate is based on figures col lected in the state of Tennessee where under a recently enacted antinarcotic law 1,403 permits were issued in six months to persons petitioning for the privilege of using narcotic drugs, and the consumption of such drugs amount ed to 8,498,200 average doses. FINDS A CURE FOR PELLAGRA Harvey, La.-Mrs. S. W. Spruiell, of this place, writes: "I suppose it will be a great pleasure to you to know that you cured my child. She had pellagra very bad and the doctor said she never would get well. She is well of pellagra and looks fine. "You may use this letter as a testimon ial if you wish. Great benefit have you done my daughter, Mindie Abrams." There is no longer any doubt that pel lagra can be cured. Don't delay until it is too late. It is your duty to consult the resourceful Baughn.

In his Savannah camp Bill Dono van, baseball manager, had a dusky hued waiter at the hotel by the name of Sutton.

"What do you mean," said Bill, "by bringing me in cold cakes?" "Well, I tell you, boss," said Sutton, "I brung them cakes in so fast for you that I guess they hit a draft" CLEAR YOUR SKIN By Daily Use of Cuticura Soap and Ointment. Trial Free.

Prlo 61.00 IL 'ii; LITTLE GOOD IN FREE BATHS City Controller of New York Goes on Record as Opposing Increase in Their Number. City Controller Prendergast of New York opposes increasing free public baths, strangely enough for a former progressive leader. He is not one bit impressed by the argument that baths prevent lawlessness and raise the standard of morals. "I doubt," he says, "if morals are as high today gen erally as they were twenty years ago, before the community had any of these uplifting facilities." Replying to a question about cleanliness being next to godliness, he said that all that was necessary was soap and water and the inclination, particularly the last, which the city, he thought, could not hope to furnish. Yet the civilizing influence of soap is traditional. The bathtub has been exalted Into a national ideal in Eng land and a national reality in the United States. The backward peoples have no baths. Physical cleanliness must inspire moral and mental clean liness, not infallibly, perhaps, but the tendency, such as it may be' is that way. As to the inclination, may not the city supply even that by offering the temptation of bathing? Aside from the question of morals, how about health? Surely the con troller will admit that cleanliness im proves health and that is certainly a function that the municipal govern ment ought to be interested in. Resembled Dining Car. Jim Sullivan, typical American tramp, carried a kitchen cabinet under his coat, and when arrested in Red Wing, Minn., the following things were found: Eight large, raw potatoes, weighing seven pounds; one quart bot tle of sweet milk, one ten-cent loaf of wheat bread, one-half dosen tea bis cults, one-half dozen rolls, fresh; two one-pound packages of ground coffee, two aluminum salt and pepper shak ers, glass cruet filled with vinegar, one raw onion and two Japanese paper napkins. Blissful Ideal. "I hope," said the applicant for sum mer board, "that you have no mosqui toes, and that there will be chicken and fresh vegetables always on the table, and that the nights are invari ably cool?" "Great Scott, mister!" exclaimed Farmer Corntossel, "what place are you lookin' fur? Heaven?" Too Late. Senator Kenyon, congratulated at a June wedding in Fort Dodge on his eloquence, smiled and said: "Well, let us admit frankly that the gift of the gab is, after all, a good thing.

WONDERFUL HOW RESINOL STOPS SKIN TORMENTS The soothing, healing medication in resinol ointment and resinol soap pen etrates the tiny pores of the skin, clears them of impurities, and stops itching instantly. Resinol positively and speedily heals eczema, heat-rash, ringworm, and similar eruptions, and clears axfiy disfiguring pimples and blackheads, when other treatments have been almost useless. Resinol is not an experiment. It is a doctor's prescription which proved so wonderfully successful for skin troubles that it has been used by other doctors all over the country for twen ty years.

I know a woman who is for letting you have what you want when you want it, who favors vacations before you have to go on a stretcher.
