Broken Homes and Men Must
of Disabled Soldiers for
They ars already rcbatldlng the
broken homes of France. And they
sre already rebuilding the broken men.
Over here we, too, are getting ready
to devote to the same tank the beat ot
American iklll and genius,
for etch million of our men who
eoter action ten tboussnd will be o
crippled as to need mechanical appli
ance, and they will have to be ie
clally educated to UM these so that
the action of the missing limbs will
be reduplicated as closely as possible.
If the Germans had had the entree
te certain parts of France last fall
they might have seen fields that they
once destroyed yielding their best crop
In years. And they tulRtit have seen
nine of these fields being reaped by
men they thought they hud done for.
They were men with varying de
grees of legleKKtiess and armleiwncg.
Some ran (and repaired) tractor en
gines. Borne, with both arms gone
shove the elbows, spniled the ground
with the aid of a clever mechanism
to which the spade was hooked. One
man, who also had but the stump ot
each arm left, not only used a scythe
but kept It sharp.
The Ued Cross Is running a five-
hundred acre farm In France on which
the maimed are taught the use of farm
Implements and the care of domestic
animals, and la already laying Its
plans for great work for the maimed
In this country. The end and aim of
all Its work will be to fit men to re
turn to their own homes, and re-eater,
as nearly as possible, their former
place In life.
Sometimes these re-edncated men
take a tar higher place In the com
munity than they occupied before. Fer
Instance, men who have been automo
bile mechanicians, and whose legs
were mutilated, have been re-educated
la mechanical drafting. Bridge work.
Doing easily whnt others find diffi
cult is talent; doing what Is Impossi
ble for talent la genius. Amlel.
OF RED CROSS
Be Rebuilt Re-education
men hnve made similar advances. A
Canadian rm-difinlc who was niulmed
and afterward re-edticoted became a
foreman at more than double his for
mer pay. It was only their seeming
mliwifortunes thut opened for tbete
men the opportunity to secure the edu
cation their tulents merited.
The Red Cross sends out a strong
warning agnlnst mistaken kindness to
ward the. maimed men who are even
now returning. If, it says, the public
Insists on milking lions of these men,
It will end by making them babies. If
employers hunt through their plants
for "snaps" for them, and give thein
Jobs that mean little more than hold'
log down stools and reminiscing about
their nnrlng deeds, then Indeed we
shall complete the work of destruction
for them, maiming minds as well aa
We, the American people, are going
to be asked to spend more time, more
money and energy keeping these men
In the Fume than It would cost to
merely support and amuse them and
let It go at that We must make them
special harnesses, actually and meta-
phorlcally, and then have patience
while tbey are getting adjusted to It
And we must see that they have their
chances at suitable employments.
But these men are going to have
something more than Just marvelous
appliances that will enable them to do
almost any kind of work. These men'a
tremendous sacrifices won't be paid
back by letting them In on life's work,
bnt not Its social game. So they are
going to have Sunday arms and leg
as well as the work-a-day wonders 1 A
man with both hands gone may, with
perfectly molded fingers, light bis own
cigarette or play cards. And a man
with his face so ravaged that his beet
friend could not restrain 'a shudder
may wear, over the disfigured part, a
mask that Is perfect and delicate,
work of art and science.
WALLABY QUICKLY WIPED OUT
Australian Pest Dldnt Last Long
When Its Pelt Became of Value
In the Market
Before the advent of the rabbit and
the fox in Australia the rock-wallaby
made Its home among the cliffs bor
dering the Snowy river, where it
passes through southern Monaro f.N.
8. W.), literally In thousands. The
little red-brown quadruped was then
becoming grass pest, and aa his akin
was then worth only 4 cents the pelt
hunter didn't bother much about him.
But an Interested mutton merchant
some years ago put a premium on the
skins, and the writer and a mate
started out one winter morning, with
about two inches of frost on the
ground and every tree powdered with
hoar-frost, for the wallaby ground.
The artillery consisted of two guns,
one a single muzzle-loader. (The
breech-loader waa then a larity on
Monaro.) By noon the hunters had
downed over sixty wallabies. The
beasts were so numerous In some
quarters that two wallabies occasion
ally fell to a single shot Soon after
that the pelt trader scented profit,
and the work of demolition began.
Now these cliffs are silent and desert
ed, save for Reynard and the eternal
rabbit, which crops the wallaby' pas
tures close and from this rough coun
try will never be exterminated.
DULL AND CHRONIC HEADACHE
Affliction, Physician Asserta, May In
variably Be Traced to the Pres
ence of Rheumatism.
Rheumatic headache may be acute,
but In most cases It Is dull and chronic,
lasting for weeks, months or years. It
Is slightly more common In women
than In men, and It occurs very rarely
below the age of 20, and most common
ly above 40 years of age. The pain Is
real and may be constant, or fairly
steady with Intermissions, writes Dr.
Hugh T. Patrick in the Journal ot
American Medical Association. It does
not occur In instantaneous shoots or
brief excruciating paroxysms, Nansea
and vomiting are not present with It
There are good days, bad days, but
with more or less pain or soreness al-
i ways present The headache Is worse
after exposure to cold or dampness.
This form of headache Is really a
rheumatic affection, and evidences of
past rheumatism are almost always
found. Its exact nature la obscure ; bac
terial Infection of the tissues of the
aching region Is probable. Treatment
consists of prolonged, repeated appli
cation of heat and the employment of
persistent massage of the area of pain,
which is most usually at the back of
the head on both sides, and may ex
tend down to neck, shoulders and
back. It Is tender to deep pressure, but
not to surface pressure.

kidneys." (Statement given March
On March 20, 1916, Mr. Trefren
