Letters from our boys in the trenches and
from the women in canteen and other
war work, all bring to us the same mes
sage—SEND US NEWS FROM HOME.
World news is all right, but OUR BOYS
want NEWS OF THIS TOWN. They want
the home newspaper. Publishers are prevented
from sending their papers free to anyone, even
boys in the service. Consequently a national
movement has been started by Col. William
Boyce Thompson of New York, who is acting
as President of the Home Paper Service of
America to give the boys what they are calling
for. Every community is joining the movement.
L«t us see that our boys are not forgotten.
Send to the publisher of this newspaper
whatever amount of money you can—5
crnis or $50.00. We will publish a list
fach week of those contributing, and the
Every cent received will be used to send
this paper to our boys at the front. If at
t^e end of the war, there is any surplus, it
wil! be turned over to the local Red Cross
There is no profit in this to the publisher—
even in normal times, subscriptions are not sold
at a profit. With war prices prevailing, and the
hi>Th rate of postage on papers sent to France,
our cost will scarcely be covered by our full
Remember that over in France, some brave
noldier or sailor from this town—perhaps even
some splendid woman working within sound of
the guns—is depending on you to “KEEP THB

A Humidor For
Your Sleeping Cave
Have you stuffiness of the nostrils?
Do you “take cold” every time any one
sneezes at you? Is your throat sensi
tive? Have you a dry, irritaling
cough at times? Do you snore? Are
you a mouth breather when asleep?
Do you wake with a dry mouth? Have
you tiwenty dollars—‘but this isn’t a
mail-order diagnosis blank, come to
think of it. Keep the twenty or buy a
bond with it. What you need is a
humidor to humidify your bedroom,
and you can make one yourself which
will do the business a whole lot bet
ter than any apparatus you can buy.

keep warm. Well, you're wrong. The
way to keep warm is to keep cool.
Hippokrales says so. I say so. Hip-
poknitt's and I agree preUy well on
ino«t subjects. Hipprokutes snid
2200 years ago: “Cool water warms,
and warm water cools.” People wh('
take morning sponge, plunge or show
er baths knew that Hippokratos and I
are right about ftiat. The cool bath
warms you up. stimulates your circu
lation, inv^reases your metabolism,
, nakes rou burn fuel f;u;ter. The
. warm bath, on the other hand, re
laxes, &-OWB down metabolism, tend*
to make you chilly, at least does not
'warm you up like a cool shower does
Oh, you can’t get aiway from my
friend Hippokrates! He and I hav«
studied this thing all out. Just sub
stitute air for water, and the resuls
are qualitatively the same, not quan
titatively. It takes much cooler aii
and much warmer air to produce sim
ilar reactions. But the air will do ii
just as water does.
Now, I feel sure that the mollies;
mollycoddle that reads this column
realizes that “colds” and so-called
“catarriiai troubles” are strictly and
cJiaracteristically indoor ailments and
not ailments of people who live muoli
in the open. Why? Becausje it is to<
warm indoors most of the winter
Huh. It often gets up to 80 or 85 de
?.rees P. hereabouts in the summer
time outdoors! True, but look at the
humidity. Old General Humidity it
famous for his mid-summer drives.
You can’t leave the General out ol
this question. But in the winter time
the General digs in. At any rate he
is conspicuous by his inactivity in
doors. Heat the nice fresh wintei
air up to 65 degrees indoors in the
winter and you make it dryer than th«
driest Sahara Desert climate, by ac

Open up all ttiree bedroom win

back on the job. It keeps out rain,
snow, whid, drafts and dust, but 11

Damp night air. That is fine for sick
ly people. In olden times they used
to say just dam night air. They were
mollycoddles, the old folks.
With these Todd screen.s in th?
bedroom windows your indoor air wil
have about the same humidity as th(
outdoor air, and it doesn’t cost a cen
to keep the humidor working all night

accounts for the groat delusion—that
exposure to cold, drafts, dampness, |
wet feet and S‘0 forth causes “colds.” j
If an individual has a chronic low i
grade inflammation in the lining of
the nose (vulgarly known as nasal
catarrh, though the word is meaning
less), any temporary disturbance of
the circulation is likely to increase
the discomfort in the nose temporar
ily, and the thoughtless victim jumps
to the conclusion that he has “taken
cold." l^nfortunately this notion is
wholly imagimiry, for a normal indi
vidual sufl'ers no illness from such
temporary circulatory disturbances as
are produced by drafts, change of
weather, dampness, wet feet or chill
ing of the body. Indeed, one of the
familiar symptoms of chronic rhinitis
is just this sensitiveness Of the pati
ent to slight alterations of environ
ment. And as we have already
stated, chronic rhinitis is so very
prevalent (at least one-third of all
yoimg people living sedentary indoor
life have it), that the catching cold
phobia prevails in direct ratio with
the popular catarrh cure.
Chief among the causes of chronic
rhinitis is the low cost of fuel. It is
an ill wind that blows no good. The
war has broualit certain blessings to
the people, such as the final proof
that severe exposure in the trenches
does not. after all, cause pneumonia
or rheumatism. If every well-to-do
family in America—and that includes
the intelligent working peoplew—were
compelled to get along this winter on
one-third less 'fuel than last winter, it
would be a blessing in disguise, for

Tl.v. *\.l^tion between the skin cir
