the other counties of the Portland
chapter, the school superintendents,
principals and teachers are voluntarily
making the survey as they make their

The principals and teachers must, of

those already in France are working

is work to do they will not stop. They

that unless nurses are supplied to take
their place and give them a chance to
regain their strength, they will go to

J.awler. of Raymond, this week closed
four poolhalls at Raymond where idlers

to the wishes of the Government and
that the closing order would remain
in force until the war was over. Sheriff
McDonald also forbid street fakirs

There is nothing so destructive to

To look one's best and feel one's best
Is to enjoy an inside bath each morning
to flush from the system the previous
day's waste, sour fermentations and
poisonous toxins before it la absorbed
into the blood. Just as coal, when it
burns, leaves behind a certain amount
of incombustible material in the form
of ashes, so the fopd and drink taken
each day leave in the alimentary organs
a certain amount of indigestible ma

toxins and poisons, which are then
sucked into the blood through the very
ducts which are intended to suck in
only nourishment to sustain the body.
