Have you heard of wbAt happened In Roumania when that stricken nation stood in rags and starring before tha shocked eyes of the worldT We had thought Qoraelve* grown used to trag- •dies antll this greater horror strack a blow that 'roused still untouched sympathies. And yet we fait so helpless, you and 1, so terribly weak in our ability to of* fer aid. But were we? After all, were we not the very ones who car> Tied new life and hope to the heart of Roumania T foa shall be your own Judge. Fighting with the desperation of de spair, the shattered Roumanian army still struggled to beat o«T the Kalser'a bloody Htina, who were mercilessly trampling the life out of the llttla kingdom. And the Kaiser smiled br» tally as he saw his wolves at work and knew that from behind the lloea, attacking the fighting men of Rouma* nia from the rear, entering the homea where mothers clung to the frail, dl»> torted forms of their babies—waa star* vatlon. No country around Roumania could help her—and America was too Tar away. Thousands would die befora supplies held in our own country could he i Hope waa gone. Death by hunger and by the dripping sword of the Kui- tier waa closing in. A brave little na* tlon was being tom to pieces. Then came the miracle. One mom* iiig the streets of Jassy, the war capi* (ai of Roumania. swelled with sounds of rejoicing, A dty where the day l»e> fore there waa heard notiilug but tlia walla of the starving and the lamentn* tiona of those mourning their deud now was awakened by shouts of Joy. Tou, my friend; you who have hel|>- pd In the heroic work of the Amerlnin Red Cross, had gone to the rescue of Roumania. A train of SX big ft«Ight cars packed to their utmost capacity with food, clothing and medicine, tons upon tons of it, bad arrived In Jassy after making a record breaking trip from the great store houses of the American Red Croaa In Russia. Other trains followed it; thousands were fed and ''lothed and nursed back to health. For weeks and even to this day the brave people of Roumania are being cared for in countless numbers by our own Red Cross. So was Roumania helped, aod when history records how this last fra^est of a sturdy nation was kept OBt of tha handa of the tarrlMa Bttoa It wUl give ^e victory to /enr Anarioan Bad OKiaa.

In recent interviewH with physicians on the ^rave and serious con> set] uences of a deliciency of Phosphates in the blood of American men and wo men, I have strongly emphasized the fact that doctors shonl<l prescribe mute phosnhates in the form of Ar^'o-Plios- phate for weak, worn*out, liagifard look* iQ|r men and women. When the skin is pale, and the llesh llabby, it is a sign of anenm. When the phospates go froin the blood, the pink cheeks go, too. The muscles lack tone. They become ner vous, irritable, despondent,melancholy the brain fags, and the memory fails. Therfore if you wish to preserve your healthy vim, vigor and vitality, to a ripe old age, you must supply the deliciency of Phosphates lacking in your food by using Argo-Phosphate, the form of Phosphates most easily assimilated.

As a matter of fact this man'p right kidney was floating, though the X-ray pic tures failed to show It. The doctor who suggested the X-ray picturoB now ordered an abdominal supporter.
