This health idea is a big one.
It used to be regarded a« a qnat
ter of sentiment. Not so any
longer. Now we have public
health planks in our big. national
platforms, health bureaus in the
eampaigns. A few eeks ago Oov.

of more health work in thia State,
and in President Wilson's inaugu
lal address he found time to
speak on public health in no un
certain terms. Here is what he

is no sentimental duty.. The firm
basis of government is Justice, not

If health work aaved |5,000,000

one pleaae explain why we are
afraid to risk over $150,000 in State
and county municipal health work
combined to effect a still greater
saving when our annual lota from
preventable diseases still ranges
around $40,000,000? If a business
man could save an annual loss of
one dollar by spending seventy
five or eighty, or even ninety
cents, don't you think he would
do It ? Why, then, Is not this
great State run on more of a bus

to spend over three or four cents

Is your body any less valuable
than an elevator, a locomotive

your duty to yourself, your family

Why Lumber b High.
Wall Street Journal.
One of the members of a well
known brokerage house recently
bought a small country place up
the Hudson, and, desiring to make
some alterations to the house, he
went to a lumber dealer to buy
his materials. When he was told
.the current prices for lumber he
was much surprised. Asking the
dealer for the reason for the rise
in the price in the last few years,
he was told that the pulp mills
were the cause.
"Ten yews ago," said the lum
ber man, "common sheeting was
selling at about |l3 to 914 per
thousand feet Today it is |J2
per thousand. The paper pulp
mills are the cause, for thay pay
as much for limbs, branoes and
even stumps cut Into suitable
lengths aa the lumber dealers will
for sawed lumber, so the farmers
and timber people will not saw
their timber Into boards, as it
means added expense for the same
