Says Ira 0. Hoag- E land, nationally known as a fire pre- E j vention engineer: E Fire is both a boon and a bane. E: Uncontrolled, it blights, burns, con si slimes, destroys, devastates, wreaks Ej havoc, incinerates, kills and maims, = I and generally lays waste to the crca- E lions of nature and man. E The destructiveness of fire, the E economic devastation of it, is gen- E erally thought of in terms of the E material damage wrought, the value E of buildings burned, contents Cori- E sumed, property destroyed. E Fundamentally, the value of hu -17 man life is economic, but the con „ eurrevn destruction of it by fire is (| little thought of in that sense. It -j Is felt as personal bereavement, not E as society benefit of creative intel- E ligences and producers of wealth. E And little thought is given—be- E forehand—to the economic havoc E wrought by fire in business and irt- E dustry; to the thousand E things in the aftermath of a' fire E which try the souls of men. = it is fondly imagined, for the E most part, that the insurance E against loss by fire on the buildings E of commerce and industry and their E contents of merchandise and ma- E teriaß, “raw, wrought and in proc- E ess of manufacture,” will he £ull E and complete recompense for loss E by fire. E “J am insured to the limit. A E fire won't cost me a cent. The in- S siirartce companies will suffer, not 3 me!” is the familiar chatter of hon- E est but unthinking men—we are E not considering the unmentionable E kind that make money out of fires E and flourish like the proverbial E green bay tree because of rotten E politics. E Of course the insurance com- E panics will pay for the losses to buildings, equipments, merchandise, E and what not in the way of ma- E terial things, and, sometimes to in- E come and profits. E And the insurance companies* E while paying do not pay; the jitili- E lie pays ihe price. The insurance g companies only collect and dis- S tribute money for indemnity. They E do not suffer and arc not expected it to. : Rut who pays for the losses j, which are the inevitable cwnse- S* quenee of the destruction of build ings, their contents and other tilings 5 material; the impairment of pres s', tige, the interruption of business; enterprisei contractual relations, | dismemberment of organization and i. What not else ? £ A burned building is far more f easily replaced than a burned bttsi 5. ness; and a wrecked works than £ an incinerated industrial enterprise. | That which makes business and i industry are not buildings, mer jf chandise, machinery and what else. but the organization of human intel- S ligence. S 5 A fire burns a business building, | or a factory. These and their con | tents may be replaced. Rut far too | often the business and the indus g try, as such, are burned beyond re- pair. And if not that bad the scars £ are deep and unforgettable. 0 Ask any honest man whose soul ?, has been seared by fire. : There is not any insurance for j the human distress, economic and otherwise, that follows a fire. It has been estimated that the un insurable losses from fire equal the ~ insurable losses. In other words, E for every dollar of loss in property z burned, which is insurable, there is 5 a dollar of loss in business burned z or industry incinerated, which is not : insurable. = These uninsurable losses are of - ten referred to as interruption = losses. 5 Who may suffer then, with i pi ll punity ? ; And for those who do, the future E will deal with much more harshlv z than has the past. E There will he in the immediate : future a fullsome renaissance of : the ancient law of the survival of l the fittest. : Our once profligate nation will | Have to think of saving what we I • have; not building to Durn and burning, building again. As a nation we have been profli gate. But there are some particu lar exceptions. The most signal exception to our national profligacy, and one which supplies a complete example in eco nomic conservation of enterprise from the destruction and havoc of fire is the textile industry. The torch of the fire fiend, which has been laying waste to resources of our fair country to the extent of a quarter of a billion dollars an nually for a number of years, touches the modern textile indus try very lightly. DEMOCRATS ADOPT STRONG PLATFORM Continued from Page 5 ticSn National Administration, and which deprives millions of our citizens of their right to strive not Only for SticcesS but for a living. We pledge our party to do every- j thing possible to relieve this situation by the vigorous pushing of needed pub lic works, such as roads, bridges and general construction, and in every other way in which the State, cither alone or in co-operation with the Fed eral Government, can properly initiate or aid. We call attention to the work of the commission, appointed pursuant to the itcl of a Democratic Legislature, to in vestigate mining conditions in this Slate, and we pledge our party to suit able legislation for the betterment of these conditions. PRIMARY ELECTIONS. We declare our confidence in the political judgment and capacity of the registered voters of the Democratic party and do again declare that, the power and privilege of nominating party candidates by direct vote should remain with the people. We pledge our party to pass only such amend ments to the Primary Flection law as shall bo consistent with Us theory and principle, and to oppose any amend ments thereto restricting the voters’ opportunity to make ail party nomina tions by direct vote. WOMEN AND CHILDREN. We believe that the extension of the suffrage to women carries with it a joint responsibility upon women and men for the administration of public ! affairs. We think that women should ] be appointed on State boards and com missions, particularly in those fields of work where woman’s training, interest 6r experience especially Qualifies her. We pledge our party to legislation removing all political disabilities of women and making it possible for them to hold any elective or appointive office, and to serve on juries. CONSERVATION. Twenty years ago Maryland ranked first among the oyster producing States of the country. We desire to restore Ihe State, as nearly as possible, to her former position, and to this end we favor the extensive planting of oyster shells and seed oysters on barren rocks. We renew our past pledges for the continued protection of ihe oystermen in the free use of the natural oyster beds and bars. We favor the establishment and maintenance by the State of commer cial and fresh-water iish hatcheries, for the purpose of stocking the streams and rivers of the State with an abund ant, supply of fish. We favor all needed legislation for the iirotection of the crab. Maryland already prohibits winter dredging and the catching of the sponge or egg-bean ing crab. . Virginia does lie', end our crab supply has been greatly depleted in consequence. Recently, however, as the result, of efforts of the conservation commission, Virginia has agreed to enact legislation similar to ours. We favor cooperative and uniform laws between the two States on the subject. PRISON REFORM. The present administration has gone as far as it can in carrying out the legislative direction to establish a sys tem of prison labor which will super sede the contract-labor syitem. The existing contracts are now all termin able on short notice and plans for the new system have been drawn. We favor legislation for the establishment of ap propriate industries at the prison for the making of articles for the State. iVe believe that this, in connection with work on the roads and elsewhere out of doors.will enable the prison authori ties to give the prisoners work selected primarily in accordance with their own economic needs, will assure them a livelihood when released, and enable them to take their places then as law abiding, producing members of society. CONCLUSION. We heartily indorse the Democratic candidate for State Comptroller, Wil liam S. Gordy, Jr., of Salisbury. He is Ihe unanimous choice of the party for this important position, for which, in ixperience, ability and high character, be is pre-eminently tilted. We appeal to the voters of the State to elect a Democratic General Assem bly, in order that the pledges for con itructive legislation made in this plat form may be faithfully carried out. Upon this platform we submit our lause to the people. Published by authority of J. Hubert Wade.

The men of eighty-five and ninety years of age are not the rotund, well fed, but thin, spare men, who live on a slender diet. Be as careful as he will, however, a man past middle age will occasionally eat too much or of some article of food not suited to his constitution, causing indigestion or constipation and will need a dose of Chamberlain’s Tablets to move his bowels and invigorate his stomach.
