Mick Auditorium, San Francisco, July 3. Declining to include in the-platform any reference to the prohibition- isu, the Democratic convention rejected yesterday both the bone dry plank fathered by William Jennings Bryan and the cider, wine and beer plank pre sented by the New York delegation. The Bryan prohibition plank rejected by the convention was as follows: "Ve heartily congratulate the Dem ocratic party on its splendid leadership in the submission and ratification of the prohibition amendment to the fed eral constitution and we pledge the party to the strict enforcement of the present enforcement law, honestly and in good faith, without any increase in the alcoholic content of permitted bev erages and without any weakening of any other of its provisions." The vote on the Bryan plank was 929y, no; 155 Vi yes; eight absent or not voting. Hobson's prohibition substitute was beaten without a roll call, as was tne Cochran wine and beer plank. William Jennings Bryan with one of his old time speeches in support of a bone dry plank for the Democratic platform, turned the convention almost upside down late in the afternoon with the magnetism and force of his ora tory and started one of the greatest and noisiest demonstrations the assem bly has yet seen. When Bryan had concluded his reply to toe aavocaies of a wet plank the demonstration cutj loose on the floor and wholly unaided by the band or the organ or any of the other instrumentalities which had been effectively used to keep other demonstrations going, it proceeded spontaneously and resisted nil efforts to get the convention back to order. Bryan standing smiling in the lime light at the edge of the speaker's plat form, and with tears of emotion cours ing down his cheeks, reviewed a pro cession of prohibition enthusiasts who tore up state standards and started a moving column of delegates about the hall. There was more than one light over whether state standards should go into the demonstration. During the demonstration the stand ard of Bryan's home state was torn in half and raised to Mr. Bryan on the platform who demanded the rest, while the crowd roared. Fnally after the crowd had been quieted, Chairman Robinson recognized Senator Glass. At six o'clock last night after eight solid hours of demonstration, oratory and debate the convention came to tire i point of voting on the changes pro- j posed in the platform by Bryan and j others. There were 11 substitute1 planks pending and offered for im ln -1 sion in the platform. The vote on the: prohibition amendments was first. ICE CREAM SODA ' j WADES PARIS, CARE OF. THE BABY A Series of Artiojes Prepared: Especially for the Barre Daily Times By the U, S. Public Health Serv ice, Washington, D. C. Quitkn relating to baby tare , and to problems of maternal and ', child health will be answered by ex pert of the U. S. public health service. Address Baby Health Editor, U. S. Public Henlth Service. Wash : inifton, D. C. Please mention this newspaper.) Motherhood. ' Each year 100,000 babies die in the United States in the first month of life, most of them because of conditions af fecting the mother before the baby was born. By giving proper care and atten tion to 'mothers before. the baby is born; thousands dT baby lives can be saved. Thousands of Mothers Lose Their Lives Needlessly. -But mothers- should have better care for another important reason. In this country at least 15,000 mothers die in childbirth each' year; that is one moth er 'in every ' 150 ' cases of child-birth. Over half of them lose their lives from preventable conditions. What can we do to stop this awful sacrifice? Saveguarding the Health of Expectant Mothers. Every expectant mother should early place herself under the care of a good physician or a well-conducted obstetri cal clinic. If the expected baby is her first, the physical examination which the doctor makes should include meas urements of the pelvis. An examina tion of the blood by means of the Was sermann test shows that about one mother in every 10 should undergo thor ough medical treatment in order to insure a healthy baby. Repeated exami nations of the urine are essential for the detection of conditions whose early treatment "may save the mother's life. Before the baby is born the mother should safeguard her health in every way. She should be as far as possible relieved of worry, have plenty of fresh air, good, wholesome food, and sufficient recreation, rest and sleep. 1 lie bowels should move once a day. Constipation, which is often troublesome during the later months of pregnancy, should preferably be controlled by regulating the diet, but if that does not suffice some simple laxative prescribed bv the doctor should be taken. The clothing should be loose, though corsets may be worn during the, earlier months. During- the last months' of pregnancy, the expectant mother should see her physician or send him a specimen of her urina every two weeks. She must drink liquid to insure -the passage of at least three pints of urine each 24 hours. Persistent or sudden and severe head aches, swelling of the face or handa, or increasing swelling of the ankleg must be reported at once to the physician in charge. The appearance of a bloody discharge also demands instant sum moning of the physician. A number of patent medicines have been widely advertised to make child birth safe, "easy and painless. They are all frauds. Instead of wanting money on them, expectant mothers should seek a doctor's advice. The Great Event. At no time in her life does a woman require better care and -attention than during childbirth. A competent doctor, or if such is not available, a properly supervised and licensed 'midwife should attend. The patient's room should be large, clean and light, and the necessary maternity outfit should be conveniently at hand. The following list represents a use ful outfit: ... One pound absorbent cotton. Five yards sterile gau.e, 'One envelope sterile umbilical tapes. One dozen sterile sanitary napkins. One tube vaseline. Four (Ounces powdered boracic acid. One do.en birdVeye diapers. : One flannel band, five inches wide, one yard long. One cake castile soap. One dozen small safety pins. Two dozen large safety pins. One new douche bag, two quarts. One eye dropper. One douche pan. One and one-half yards rubber nur sery sheeting. . After Baby' Comes. The mother should rest in bed for at least a week after ta.lv Is' born and several weeks more should not do real ly heavy work. Various forms of se rious female troubles are due to a fail ure to follow this advice. The mother's food should be plenti ful, wholesome and nutritious, for, of course, baby must be nursed at the breast. The mother should drink plen ty of milk, but much tea and coffee are injurious. Almost all mothers can breast-feed their babies. If the flow of milk is scanty the mother should: (a) Drink plenty vi liquids espe cially milk. Little Johnny Spendthrift, Jr. I : ' ' j : I (a chip off , 1 (b) Not do heavy work. (c) (id sufficient rest and sleep. "(d) Take an' outdoor airing every pleasant day. (e) Avoid constipation. (f) Put baby to nurse regularly. In order to train the child and to keep herself well and strong, the moth er should systematize baby a daily life, the nursing times, bath, sleep and outdoor periods. If the baby is often fretful the mother should seek' the doc tor's advice. Under no circumstances should she give soothing sirups or oth er patent medicines recommended by the neighbors. ACCIDENTS REDUCED. Prohibition Has Cut Them in Half in America, Says Evangeline Booth. London, July 3. Evangeline Booth, head of the Salvation Army in Ameri ca, lias told British newspapermen that should prohibition in the United Htates be repealed "over the protests of the women, I will fill America from sea to sea with parades of children bearing banners and no liquor interests could prevail against these demonstrations." She said, however, in her opinion "the mothers of America will keep that country forever dry." Miss Booth declared prohibition had "reduced accidents by half in the Unit ed States, had promoted health, and done away with the hobo and unem ployment," but she added crime had not appreciabbly decreased because of the effects of the "great war-strin."- The Salvation Army industrial homes will have to be put to other uses than shelter for unemployed, hungry men, she said, because the men who formerly sought refuge in them now are earning wages which enable them to pay for the accommodations. American Concoction Becoming Quite Popular Now With the Parisians. Paris, June 16. The ice cream sida has invaded Paris. With the arrival of the first of the American tourist numerou shops have sprung up which boast that within may be obtained "real" American ice cream sodas Prices for this American drink range from three to six francs, accordingtto the character of the shop. Paris has always had places where poor imitations of the great American drink could be obtained but not until this spring, when the tourists' trade revived, did the real thing make its ap pearance. An amusing feature of the French premier of the soda has been the popularity it has attained with the Parisians. 4 At first quite skeptical, the French later tried the drink and like it. One large cafe on one of the famous boule vards serves more French people than American with ice cream odas. This cafe has even attempted the sale of sundaes hut they haven't achieved the success of the sodas. EAST BETHEL Mr. and Mrs. Charles Holman and children, and Henry Holman of War wick, R.
