THE DAVENPORT NEW ERA
GIVES "SAFETY FIRST" IDEA
Latest Effort of Government to Protect
Country's Homes From Pos-
The safety of the home Is the sub-
ject of a pamphlet Issued by the bu-
reau of standards, Department of Com-
merce, entitled "Safety for the House-
hold, Bureau of Standards, Circular
No. 75." An interesting account of
household hazards Is given. The top-
ics are dl icussed clearly in a manner
which would afford a basis for popular
education In "safety first." The dan-
gers from electricity, gas, fire, light-
ning, household chemicals and the oth-
er common'causes of accident are re-
cited and many actual cases are de-
scribed. The purpose Is to aid in re-
moving needless risk and fear, and to
develop intelligent caution where the
hazard cannot be entirely avoided.
The ITazards of the home have In-
creased In modern times, from the serv-
ice of gas and electricity and the use
of such dangerous articles as matches,
volatile oils, poisons and the like. The
use of energy in the home necessarily
Involves some risk which Intelligent
planning pnd care will reduce to a min-
Caution alone is-not enough, since
many of the dangers are not even sus-
pected. The nature of such unknown
hazards must be made plain. The cir-
cular emphasizes the seriousness of
Bome of the risks not generally known,
gives simple cautions and alms to guide
the formation of habits of carefulness.
The circular also suggests effective
home equipment to minimize the risks
Involved and aims to encourage pub-
lic measures to provide safety for the
household and community.
It is intended, not to increase fear
of accident, but rather to remove the
causes and the need for alarm. The
sense of safety to be gained by observ-
ing these cautions would alone justify
the careful study of this new circular.
This circular completes the series of
three popular household . circulars
which deal with measurements, mate-
rials and safety. These form a valu-
able addition by the bureau of stand-
ards to the literature on household
The appalling loss of life from avoid-
able causes and Injury to person and
property make the pamphlet especially
timely. It Is believed that thousands
of human lives could be saved and acci-
dents reduced to the minimum If the
precautions suggested are followed.
Copley of this circular can be purchas-
ed at a nominal cost of 15 cents per
copy from the superintendent of doc-
uments, government printing office,
Washington, D. C.
Proof-that Some Women
do Avoid Operations
Mrs. Etta. Dorion, of Ogdensburg, Wis., ssys:
«'I suffered from female troubles which caused piercing pains
like a knife through my baolc and side. I finally lost all my
strength so I had to go to bed. The doctor advised an operation
but I would not listen to it. I thought of what I had read about
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and tried it. The first
bottle brought great relief and six bottles have entirely cured me.
All women who have female trouble of any kind should try
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound."

"My mother, who had been helped by Lydia E.Pink-
ham's Vegetable Compound, advised me to try it be- I
fore submitting to an operation. It relieved me from
my troubles so I can do my house work without any
difficulty. I advise any woman who is afflicted with *
female troubles to give Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege
table Compound a trial and it will do as much
for them.'f— Mrs. Mabie Boyd, 1421 6th St.,
N. E., Canton, Ohio.

Many Trench Diseases.
The unparalleled conditions of mod-

Llnd to have brought to the military
surgeons two new types of cases. One
of these Is shell shock, apparently due
to the emotional strain upoji the nerv-
ous system; and the other Is a surpris-
ingly large number of ailments arising
from the peculiar environment of the
trenches. a relapsing fever, a tran-
sient nephritis, and frostbite of the
feet are the three chief disorders re-
sulting from trench life. There are al-
so trench enteritis, trench skin, trench
diarrhoea, trench rheumatism, trench

may be symptoms of or connected In
some way with the three principal dis-

fine chance for body training. People

go upstairs In a prescribed way. This
Is how to do It: You pause lightly
on the haUs of your feet; you lift your
chest; you Inhale a good long breath;
then you go up easily and quickly as If
you were lifted by your chest. Seel
