THE EMBLEM OF HUMAN MERCY
By SAMUEL GOMPERS
The Red Cross is an emblem typifying human
mercy and sympathy. Its mission to relieve phys-
"ly; ICOI pOIl I Ul IVJ 11111 HOtt I1111IVJ
body has given it a place deep in the
hearts Qf(ljall our people. For those
whose year opes are in places of
great danger it is a comfort to know
that, the American Red Cross is per
forming more effective service on a
larger scale than ever before.
In addition to serving our enlisted forces, it is
assisting in the work of civil relief among our allies
whose soil is being devastated by the fighting.
Thus the Red Cross is helping to interpret the
constructive spirit of our Republic which holds
sacred human life and the ideals it seeks.
As time goes on the scope of the work of the
Red Cross in Europe will increase in order that the
organization may. meet, thg .(demands that will be
made upon it. It must receive the full and hearty
support of the American people. It is only through
sqch jaq bncy that We can be assured relief and
ri&fessary istration to our young men forming
our military force.
It is my sincere desre that adequate funds
will be secured for the work of the Red Cross.
1 la tbe observance of Fire Prevention
!D&y, October 9, the State Insurance
Department called especial attention to
the part "which can be played by the
housekeepers of the State. The house
'wives, the helpmeets of the wage earn
rs in industrial pursuits, must bear
jlm mind constantly the knowledge that
jtne wage earner stands in peril at all
times from injury by accidents that go
vita their hazardous occupations.
You housekeepers also should learn
the Be Careful -lesson. You know
what untold misery and suffering are
caused by accidents in the industrial
world. You know that every four min--utes
of every working day a wage
earner is killed, that every four sec
onds , of every working day a wage
arner is Injured. You know that the
tvast majoity of these accidents are
the result of gross carelessness and
could be avoided by the observance
of simple Be Careful rules. You
know these terrible truths and you
eanestly urge your bread winner to
Avoid taking unnecessary chances.
But do you do your part to prevent
accidents in-the home?
Every year thousands of women
and children are killed and injured in
their own homes as the result of care
lessness. Your turn may come next
unless you form the Be Careful habit.
Fire is one of wour worst enemies,
destroying countless homes and claim
ing thousands of innocent human vic
tims generally women and children.
Here are some suggestions you
might bear in mind to aid you in ac
quiring the Be Careful habit:
NEVER use coal oil to start a fire
in the stove. You invite disaster
very time you do, for it is liable to
xplode and scatter the blazing olL.
NEVER let children play around
bonfire. They love to venture close
te the blaze and a sudden gust o!
wind may blow their dress into the
NEVER leave matches lying around
.'within reach of young children. Few
youngsters can resist the temptation
jto plays with the fire and often their
lives are sacrificed as a result.
NEVER neglect to pick up a match
jyou have dropped on the floor. Many
a fatal fire has been caused by step-
Iping on a match head. N
NEVER set a lighted candle or lamp
pear a curtain. The wind may blow
the drapery against the flame.
NEVER neglect to attend promptly
to an apparently trivial Jnjury. A tiny
raicn oiten oecomes lniectea, cans
jlng blood poison.

Newest Devices of Surgery
For Our Wounded Soldiers
Nitrous Oxide and Fluoroscope at Hand to Give
American Wounded All Chance in World.
The best is none too good for the
wounded American soldier. That is

It is adopted in the Red Cross army
hospitals, which are models of up-to-the-lnstant
This fact is vividly emphasized In a
