ACUTE IN GERMANY
Cologne.—(By N. C. W. C.)—A
conference of ecclesiastical authori
ties and representatives of the legal
department of the government is to
be held in the near future, for the
purpose of trying to arrive at a set
tlement of the status of rectories and
narsonages under the law permitting
the seizure of residences and build
ings to provide homes. Because of
the great shortage of houses in Ger
many, legal steps have been taken
whereby anyone having any room ii.
excess of the requirements of his
own family, can be compelled to take
in tenants. As a result many of the
richest people of Germany now have
lodgers in their castles and villas.
Under the law, however, public
buildings were exempt from seizure
for this purpose, unless the consent
of the local authorities had been
given, and this immunity was exton
ded to the residences of pastors and
rectors on the ground that their
houses were for the service of the
parish, Recently the Prussian Minis-
ter of Public Welfare, acting
the support of the Minister of Labor,
declared that this immunity should
no longer be continued. In several
instances judicial decisions have been
handed down in support of this de
claration. The Prussian Minister of
Religion and representatives of all
denominations have protested, and in
an interpellation in the Reichstag
Dr. Everling, a deputy of the German
People’s Party, has put the question
squarely up to the government for
The housing shortage ia becoming
more acute all the time in Germany.

ing was done and since the war the

It is authoritatively
stated that many hundreds of mar
riages have had to be put off because
the young couples are absolutely
unable to find places in which to live.
The shortage is particularly acute in
the Rhur and Rhineland just now,
because of the additional demands
for housing facilities imposed by the
French forces of occupation.
CAUSES OF HEADACHES
Probably the most common cause
of headaches ia auto-intoxication, or
poisoning of one's self by waste pro
ducts that are not properly thrown
off by the body. This ia a condition
met with so frequently that are are
prone to overlook its importance.
You may not be aware of a con
stipated condition. There may be
bowel action daily, but it may be the
waste material of food taken several
days ago. Unless the intestinal func
tion ia active there is fermentation
and absorption of body poisons. Head
aches are sure to follow.
Victims of headaches in countless
numbers have found temporary relief
through salts or cathartics or have
resorted to one of the many “head
ache tablets" or “wafers." Some even
have sought relief in opium and mor
Let me sound a solemn note of
warning against such a practice.
Drugs or medicines should never be
taken without the advice of a physi
cian. The continued employment of
any drug results in addiction to its
use. An addict is a slave, and when
a human being once yields to the
clutch of a habit he is on his way to |
hopeless ill health and to a materially
shortened life. The newspapers have
accounts almost every day about the
practices of the drug addicts. Cer
tainly no one should take the chance
of acquiring this terrible habit.
No one cause is more prolific of
headaches than eyestrain. When one
passes 45 or 50 he should visit the
oculist at least once a year or at least
once in two years. Simply because

there is perfect vision. It may be an
unconscious effort, but any effort to ;
see clearly means a drain of nerve
energy. No matter how small th«
leak, the great reservoir of energy,
the brain, will be called upon ulti
mately. and then comes trouble.
The presence of chronic headache
should lead to an examination of the
urine. Failure of perfect kidney
elimination has this as a symptom. It
is a good thing to make sure at
regular intervals that these import
ant organs are functioning as they
should, but persistent headache makes
