1 THE HEROISM OF MERCY
By OPIE READ
■ There is no greater heroism than the
heroism of mercy. There is no truer
bravery than the bravery of tenderness.
Out of the crash of nation against nation
arises a Christ-like sympathy, and the
insignia of its tenderness is the cross of
red. It is the only remaining glow of a
Christian hope. It is religion under
shell fire. It is a sigh set to the music
of sympathetic action. If a man who
speaks truth should say to you,
the use of five dollars you can save a
useful life, alleviate a hundred nights of pain," you would
grant him the money. You would not feel that you had
lost, but gained.
This is what the Red to you: " Give of your
safe and secure substance nnd 1 will sooth pain. I will gather
up men, heroes who have been shot to the earth, and housing
them I will nurse them back to life. For myself 1 ask no
recompense. My reward is my conscience. My applause is
restoring man to his family."
Hearing these words and feeling that they are true,
would you hesitate to open your purse, whose contents were
gathered in times of peace ?
The Red Cross appeals to you personally. To you it
opens its merciful heart and !>egs you for assistance. The
cutting down of one luxury a day would mean a soothing
tenderness on the red fields of France.
Was Not Mentioned
Youthful French Orator Seemed to Think Lafayette Was
Really the Father of This Country.
By DR. ESTHER LOVEJOY.
What Is the atUtnde of the French
people toward the Americans? The
French are a very polite people, and, -
no matter what their Inmost thoughts
may be, they are not likely to express
an opinion to an American other than
complimentary. But the children of
all the world are guileless. They can
be depended upon to express In public
the private opinions of their parents.
The children of France are crazy about
Americans In uniform, so we guess
what their parents feel for ns.
On one occasion I was passing a pub
lic school with another Red Cross wo
man physician In uniform and a
French visiting nurse. Tho school had
just been dismissed, and a group of
young boys came . trooping out In
stantly we were surrounded, and after
a second's parley a young Mlrabeau of
about twelv* years, the spokesman of
the group, stepped forward, bowed
formally and delivered an address on
Lafayette and America, which was
punctuated by the applause of his ad
miring compatriots. The American
Eaglet could not possibly have scream
ed louder In the United States on the
Fourth of July than It did on that back
street of a munition town tn France.
Washington Net Mentlened.
There seems to be some difference
ef opinion on the relative Importance
of certnln historic characters connect
ed with the American Revolution.

Yours is the daring skill to tread
The waters of a world at war;
Yours is the miracle to shed
Where rocking seas of hatred are,
Courage and comfort, like a star.
! You cry unto an earth dismayed,
i c And God is thrilling in your tonei
i "Brothers, the ship is not alone;
Be not afraid 1"
Ye are the Christa of this black hour.
The Great Physician come again,
Within your sacred hands the power
To heal the race of men.
Ye hold the hurt world to your breast;
, Ye bind her bruised and broken soul;
The sick, the maimed and tiie oppressed-
Yours is the gift to make tnem whole.
And where the stricken miles unroll
Ye sound the resurrection morn;
Above the bier where Justice lies,
With visions of an age new born.
Ye bid the dead arise!
O World, that walkest now in tears
Where Truth again is crucified
After the thousand, thousand years-
See yet that Christ i? not denied!

George Washington wasn't mentioned.
According to the Juvenile French
version, Lafayette saved America.
This was the most glorious achieve
ment in the history of the world. Sin
gle handed and alone Lafayette sowed
the seeds of liberty In the United
States that has spread from the At
lantic to the Pacific and fired the souls
of a hundred million people. When the
American colonies were in a death
struggle with the Hanoverian monster
on the throne of England the Hohen
zollcrns and Hessians and Hindenburg
ers and all the H's representing Hell
on Earth in that day and generation
Lafayette crossed the ocean on a slow
sailing ship—so slow, so slow for so
swift a soul—and saved America. And
now, after 140 years, the hosts of
America, a million strong, are return
ing that historic visit for the purpose
of repaying the debt of gratitude.
To say that the audience followed

*"■ —Everything He Ate Caused
Gas, Pains and
"You certainly have a fine medi
cine in Dreco, said that well
known man, Mr. L. A. Todd, of
705 East Ninth Street, Charlotte.
"It has done me worlds of good
and I am glad of a chance to pub
licly endorse it", he continued.
"Everything I ate would sour
on my stomach, form gas and
bloat me up, cause awful griping
in my stomach and diarrhoea. My
kidneys were in bad shape and
the doctor had ordered mo to stop
eating meat, and I couldn't eat
vegetables on account of my
stomach, as I was 'up against it'
"I frequently had to get up four
or five times during a night on ac
count of- my kidneys. My urine
was highly colored, feverish and
had bad odor and the pains in my
back were almost unbearable.
' I've waked up many a night from
these pains to roll and toss till it
was about getting up time. Then
I'd be all worn out and felt like
sleeping, more tired than when I
went to bed the night before.
"After taking two bottles of
Dreco I am haf py to say I am feel
ing better than in many a day.
My stomach is as well as ever in
my life, and I now oat corn, beans,
potatoes, in fact anything I crave
and it never gives me a pain or
diarrhoea. My kidneys are all
right and I go to bed and never
wake up a single time. The pains
in my back are gone, urine is nor

strength every day. I certainly

Poor, Cold Soldier Covers Dead Pal
With His Overcoat.
Private Peat, in The American
, After the first gas attack at
Ypres, in April, 1915,1 was knock
ed out for a while and was in the
clearing station at Merville. One
day when I was lying there on a
stretcher, a poor, miserable sol
dier came in. He was covered
with mud and blood. He was
minus his overcoat and his tunic
was torn by shrapnel. He was
soaked to the bone, for it was
raining, and he was shivering with
cold and pain. The nurse hurried
to him and asked him what had
become of his overcoat.
"Oh," he said, his teeth chat
tering, "my pal was killed back
there, and ho looked so cold, lying
there in the rain, I took off my
coat and put it oVer him."
If the men in the trenches, with
their dirt and their filth, their
swearing and fighting, can show
such tenderness and unselfishness
and sacrifice, are you here at home
going to fall below them in no
bility of spirit ? I don't believe
RHEUMATIC PAINS RELIEVED.
"I have used Chamberlain's Lini
ment for pains in the chest and for
lameness in the shoulders due to
rheumatism and am pleased to say
that it haß never failed to give me
prompt relief," writes, Mrs, S. N.
Finch, Batavia, N. Y.
Official French statistics on the
submarino warfare show that the
total losses of allied and neutral
ships, including accidents at seu,
were approximately only one-half
as great during April this year as
in April, 1917.
Having organized its successes,
Congress shows signs of resuming
the offensive against George Creel.
S&ME GOOD ADVICE.
"Don't think 100 muchof your
own methods. Watch other people's
ways and learn fromth em." This is
good advice, especially when bil

many people who use Chamberlain'B
