One often hears the expression, "My child caught a severe cold which developed into diptheria," when the truth was that the cold had simply left the little one particularly sus ceptible to the wandering diptheria germ. If your child has a cold when diptheria is prevalent you should take him out of school and keep him off the street until fully recovered, as there is a hundred times more danger of his taking diptheria when he has a cold. When Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is given it quickly cures Die cold and lessens the danger of dip theria or any othej- germ disease be ing- contracted. nioscow veterans of great — .the 18 Ringing resolutions, filled with pa triotism and real Americanism, were adopted by the members of Moscow Camp of Veterans of the Great War in regard to the Victory Loan drive. The resolutions are given to the press with a request that they be sent to other places and published for the purpose of encouraging other camps of the veterans who won the war, to take similar action and "get behind the Victory Loan and put it over the top." There is inspiration in these res olutions passed by the men who gave all that was asked of them to their country's service and their appeal to those who stayed at home and enjoy ed peace, quiet and luxury while these men fought for the liberty of the world, should touch the hearts and di e purses of all.
