W. C. T. U. NOTES.
MARY A NOTSON, Reporter.
When Attila, the Hun, was sent
to Rome as a hostage, Rome was
the proud mistress of the world.
Attila was treated with much con
sideration. He had an easy time,
He had plenty of rich food to eat,
all the wine he wished to drink
and nothing to do. He had been ac
customed to the rough hard life of
a soldier. His muscles were hard
and his endurance was great. He
soon saw that this kind of life
would soften his muscles and re
duce his endurance. He decided
to drink no more wine and to con
serve his vigor.
He walked about the great city
and noted that the Roman senators
were besotted with wine, that the
soldiers in the city were lacking in
resistance on account of wine
drinking, that the citizens were
losing their patriotic attitude be
cause their brains were beclouded
with wine. Attila became convinc
ed that the greatest enemy Rome
had was within the walls, and that
that enemy was wine. He said to
himself that some day he would
lead an army over the walls and
take the city. This he did, and
Rome fell, not so much the victim
of the Huns as a victim of wine
wine drinking. If history teaches
anything, ,it teaches that a drunken
nation can not resist a vigorous
temperate enemy. This is not only
true in a military sense, but is also
true In an industrial- sense. Lloyd
George said that unless Great
Britain slacekned its beer drink
ing it could not expect to compete
with America If America continued
in its prohibition policy.
The women who are fostering an
organization against prohibition
claim that they have on their rolls
twenty-eight thousand more names
than the W. C. T. U. has on its
rolls. This ought to be a challenge
to the W. C. T. U. to enlarge its
membership. But, there are some
large organizations on the side of
prohibition; among these are the
General Federation of Worn ens
clubs; the National Grange, repre
senting a million farmer In 34
states; the National Education as
sociation, with 200,000 teachers as
members. This last organization
repulsed a loud but weak attempt
by a handful of wets to reverse Its
dry policy. The Department of
Superintendence, which Is a part
of tie National Education assoc la-
New Grid Leader
tion not only endorses prohibition,
but is helping teach law observance
and the evils of alcoholic liquor.
The great denominational bodies of
the country with two exceptions
have registered their continuing
confidence in prohibition as the
best method of combatting the
liquor traffic. However, do not let
these figures lull you into inactivity.
The opposition is financed by mil
lionaires who hope to profit from
the return of the liquor traffic. Let
us gird our loins for the greatest
battle of all and go forth to fight
for God and Home and Native

CHRIST THE TRUTH!
"I am the TRUTH." John 14 6
Mankind has long sought to
know the TRUTH. Socrates was
asked, "what is truth?" And he
answered: "Truth is found in phil
osoohv." When Plato was asked
the same question, he replied
"Truth is found in a realm of
ideas." Then this great question
was asked of Aristotle and he said
"Truth is found in system."
Again, the question was asked of
a convention of thinking men of
our age, and they answered, in the
words of one of the scientists
"Truth is unknowable." But Jesus
Christ everlastingly answers this
question by saying, "I am the
. Other teachers must confess their
ignorance, or point to something
outside themselves for the truth;
but Christ is the very truth him
self! Christ i3 the truth!
He is the truth about God and
all providence! He is the truth
about all theology and Divine
grace! He is the truth about life,
its meaning, its mission, its des
tiny! Know Jesus Christ and you know
the truth! It is not enough to
know about Him, for that is only
head knowledge. It is not what
we know in our heads, but what
we have in our hearts that counts
for character. 'As a man thinketh
in his heart, so is he!" We need to
know Christ in our hearts.
As pupils can learn botany bet
ter by coming into contact with the
flowers themselves; so we can best
learn honor, purity and truth by
coming into direct contact with
these virtues as we find them in
Him who is all these things in Him
self and of Himself! So let us study
Christ and His ways, and take them
into our hearts, till those things
that are pure and true and honor
able and lovely shall become a part
of our very lives.

Every County and City
Needs Health Department
From State. Board of Health. '
Every county or city has at least
two great assets, namely property
and people. The amount of effort
made to conserve these two assets
depends on the intellectual, social
and economic status of a commun
ity. There are very few individ
uals o rcommunities that have not
protected themselves against losses
from fire by carrying Are insur
ance and by maintaining an ade
quate fire department. To protect
property from misappropriation
and theft, rigid laws have . been
passed and millions of dollars are
spent annually for the enforcement
of laws through the maintenance
of police departments and courts.
Very few, If any, communities
have failed to make provision for
the protection of their property.
When one considers the laws pass
ed and the force maintained for
safeguarding property and stops to
realize how little is done to protect
the health of the people, it is diffi
cult to believe that th greatest as
set of a community is human life,
not property. Just -why so much
more emphasis is laid upon the con
servation of material things than
upon saving human lives cannot be
If a county or city does not care
to spend money for health work, it
is either because the people do not
care - to make an effort to obtain
ht best community health and are
satisfied as long as they are not
threatened wlht fatal epidemics, or
it is because they do not believe
that much can be done to improve
the health of the community.
Public health within certain Urn?
itations is purchasable. While we
still have our epidemics, the loss of
life that prevailed before preven
tive measures were used is no long
er to be feared. How can a county
or city get the best health protec
tion? In the same manner as it
gets fire protection and police pro
tection, and in the same manner
as it is able to obtain the best pos
sible school system. It means the
establishment of a special organi
zation efficiently manned and ade
quately financed. If good healht is
essential to a happy successful life,
we have a right to assume that the
first need of any community is a
health organization. If the great
est asset of an individual as well as
a community is good health, why
then is it not reasonable to spend
at least as much money for a de
partment that protects human lives
as for departments that protect
A community needs a health de
partment to protect it against com
municable diseases. Such protec
tion is not only given through iso
lation and quarantine of cases but
even more so by the use of modern
preventive measures. A health de-
partmnt endeavors to persuade the
community to accept all recognized
and sucessful preventive meas
ures. If it were possible to have
the community adopt all of the
measures, most of the fatal com
municable diseases could be elim
inated. The greatest need of today
is individual health knowledge. An
efficient health department depends
not only upon the amount of mon
ey, expended for health but even
more so upon trained and exper
ienced health workers. Too many

Good old Castorial There's comfort
in every drop of this pure vegetable
preparation, and not the slightest
harm in its frequent use. As often as
Baby has a fretful spell, is feverish,
or cries and can't sleep, let Castoria
soothe and quiet him. Sometimes it's
a touch of colic, sometimes constipa
tion. Or diarrhea a condition that
should always be checked without
delay. Just keep Castoria handy, and

very promptly; if it doesn't, you
should call a physician.
