Says wo can't help !ut look
better and feel betteq
after an Inside bath.
Te 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 fermen
tations and poisonous toxins before it
is absorbed into the blood. Just as
coal, when it burns, leaves behind ja.
certain amount of incombustible ma
terial in the form of ashes, so the
food and drink taken each day leave
in the alimentary organs a certain
amount of indigestible material,
which if not eliminated, form tox'ns
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.
If you want to see the glow of
healthy bloom in your cheeks, to see
your skin get plearer and clearer
you are told to drink every morning
upon arising, a glass of hot vater
with a teaspoonful of limestone phos
phate in it, which is a harmless
means of washing the waste material
and toxins from the stomach, livr,
kidneys and bowels, before putting
more food into the stomach.
Men and women with sallow skins,
liver spots, pimples or pallid com
plexion, are those who wake up with
a coated tongue, bad taste, nasty
breath, others who are bothered with
headaches, bilious spells, acid stom
ach or constipation should begin this
phosphated hot water drinking. .
A quarter pound of limestonephos
phate costs very little at the drug
store but is sufficient to demonstrate
that -just-as -saap . and hot water
cleanses, purines and freshens the
skin on the outside, so hot water and

the first execution since the new or

that all unrestrained dogs be muzzled.
Twenty-two unmuzzled dogs have

: Business men generally Ire .inclined
to think that conditions can be im
proved as regards alleged illegal sales
of liquor made here and members of
the community welfare committee
men" who are intensely interested in
the welfare of' visiting soldiers share
this opinion, but none of them are
willing to admit that conditions are
anything like as bad as some would
have the country at large believe, and
all are satisfied that with a little co
operation from Colonel A. W. Chase,
Fort Caswell's commandant, that the
city can be made safe for the soldiers
and that they will not be obliged to
forego the. pleasure of their: week-end
visits, unless Colonel Chase is deter
mined to keep them away.
Colonel Chase's letter, which has
resulted in a lot of unfavorable adver
tising for the city and which is not
reproduced because of this fact, is to
be acted upon by the executive com
mute 6 of the Chamber of Commei !
The matter was discussed at the

will be furnished by the - post band

object of the central and subsidiary
committees is to make the parade
one of the most successful ever at
tempted in Wilmington. The com

dling the situation during their stay
in the city. As one member of the
committee expressed it, suppose Wil
mington goes ahead with her clean
up and succeeds in ridding the city
of all bootleggers, and that permis
sion is re-granted the soldiers to visit
here, and then conditions gradually
drift back to the old rut and the priv
ilege of the men coming here is again
denied. Wilmington w411 have been
given a black eye alKover the coun
try in fact, the city will have been
made the goat, and we are no better
off than in the beginning. What the
average business man believes is best
is a little co-operation on the part oj
local and military authorities, and
when this is had that the situation
will have been completely remedied.
Business men are frank to say that
they do t believe uch conditions
as. outlined exist. If there is anything
wrong they are willing to lend every
assistance in cleaning up these con
ditions, but they are opposed to ad
vertising of this nature unless it is
justified and even . then they are
inclined to think that bigger results
can be accomplished without adver
tising to the four corners of the world
what is transpiring within the corpo
rate limits of the town of Wilming
ton. Men who have been in the various
cantonment cities say that conditions
here as they see them are not even
comparable to conditions elsewhere,

ing toward cleaning up the alleged

All are agreed that the city should
be kept clean; Wilmington wants the
soldiers to visit here, and Wilmington
will do everything in her power to
entertain them while they are in the
city, but business men are ,v4ery much
opposed to the form of advertising

time when every effort is being bend

Men of the South. Can You Read This and
Keep Back Your Lives and Your Money?
"The women of France have so much
more to fight for than the men" said
Dr. Esther Clawson Lovejoy, who re
cently returned after spending months
of arduous repatriate work at Evian,
to a conference of Red,Cross workers in
Wilmington yesterday. The words
fraught with a meaning that only first
hand observation and actual experience
could give stirred the souls of her hear
ers as perhaps they had not been be
fore. "A man can only die," she explained,
"but those women many of them,
must become the wards of the men they,
hate and mothers of children who may
be made to fight against their own land.
To die is easy compared to that."
"The boys of 14 and over are kept
by the Germans to help in the war
against their native land, the speaker
declared. The girls of 1 6 and over are
kept also. The girls can become the
mothers of a Hun who can fight against
her own land. Mother, love is stronger
than love for country or anything else
in the whole world. A mother will
give all for her children. Men cannot be
conquered but women can be through
their mother instinct. The Germans
"Whv do they keep these girls? They
doni: sen3 them back, is is to breed
a German army.
"When the women return to France
after having been in the hands of Ger
mans, they experience a strange inde
scribable joy when they reach their na
tive land again. It is a joy unlike any
thing that people in America have
known. They have escaped from an
unspeakable tragedy. They sing the
'Marseillaise' with their souls in their
voices. No one can look at them with
out thinking of them as blessed martyrs.
TKey care nothing for worldly posses
sions. They have given, their all for
their country, and they have returned.
"They speak of their boys who have
been killed with a feeling of pride with
their Jieads raised high, with a serene
happiness, ' But for the girls of i 6 and
overwho have been left behind, they
have only, a look of despair, a feeling
of indescribable pain."
