SAFE, GENTLE REMEDY

for kidney, liver, bladder and stomach
trouble, and all diseases connected with
the urinary organs. The kidneys and blad-
der are the most important organs of the
body. They are the filters, the purifiers of
your blood. If the poisons which enter
your system through the blood and .tom-

The Answer |«—Time.
In such a case, why does he live and
?et well, If he lives? Why does he die,
f he dies? What la the difference?
rhe answer Is, time. The answer may
ie, twenty hours or twenty minutes.
Suppose it were possible to pick up
very wounded man the instant that
le'fs hit, to remove him swiftly from
:he battlefield or the trench to a first-
'lass hospital, to give him the immedl-
ite attenticc of nurses and surgeons.
If that picture were true, the fatalities
n our armies would be almost In-
Look In the darker picture. Your
roung friend goes over the top In a big
lllied drive. He is wounded in the

thousands of men engaged—hun-
dreds killed Instantly—thousands up-
jii thousands suffering with wounds,
nost of them superficial and seem-
ngly unimportant. Your young
'rienil Is disabled but for the present
le feels no unusual discomfort. Shock
tustalns him. He feels that very short-
y he will be picked up and taken In
o an emergency hospital where Ills leg
:an be fixed up. He is disappointed—
ao one comes. Terrific pain sets In—
fcith the Inflammation a heavy fever.
ISventy-four hours go by. Finally he
pickod up. He la rushed to a hos-
pital as fast as possible, considering
the number of ambulances. He reach-
t'.s the hospital. The nurse looks at
tils leg—she calls a doctor. They both
hake their heads—they ought to have
had the man hours ago. All right, he
thinks to himself, they'll take care of
lilm now. But ahead of him Is a waiting
list of groaning, wounded men. There's
nothing for it, he's got to wait his turn.
Hours pass. The wounded come in by
dozens. Medical supplies give out
medicine gives out. Dressings give
out. There are not enough surgical In
struments to go around. Finally, with
your man at the height of a raging fe-
ver they get to him and operate. Twen-
ty hours before an operation would
have been unnecessary. They remove
the leg—a leg which had suffered a
superficial wound, not dangerous In
itself but which became dangerous
only with the passage of time. But
gangrene already has set In—It is fol-
lowed by mortification. The boy suf-
fers .the tortures of the damned. He
dies—is glad to die.
Now, what's the answer? Would
twenty minutes have saved him? Pos-
sibly. Would an hour and twenty
minutes have saved him? Quite likely.
Would three hours and twenty minutes
have saved him? Almost certainly,
yes. Five hours certainly would have
saved him. He died because there was
delay of hours or minutes—that's the
Your Money Will Help.
Now, what's the trouble? Where
loes the fuult lie? Why didn't they
get your man fixed up so his life ami

question of army doctors or army nur-
ses, nor Bed Cross doctors nor Bed

These patriots are way, way behind
the lines. They live In Brooklyn, and
not only In Brooklyn, but far In the
rear of Brooklyn, where the last end
of a subway Is coming to a conclusion.
These patriots may be called allen pa-
triots, for many of them have not been
here long. They are small patriots,
for the eldest is only about ten. Their
mothers keep the homes, and their
fathers dig the peaceful trenches for
the subway. So they are not very
well-to-do patriots. In fact, they are
quite otherwise; they are poor In ev-
erything but patriotism. In that they
are very rich. They are full of it,
crammed In, pressed down and run-
ning over, as you will agree. It bub-
bled so, inside of them, that they had
to put It Into expression, somehow.
But how? They had just nothing to
exprygs with. No pennies to make a
fund to send somewhere; no pennies
to buy tobacco for the soldier's pipes;
no pennies to buy worsted to knit
with. What should they do?
A hopeless little group they were as
they stood one day, discussing wu3's
and means, or rather, the utter lack
of them, till at last the situation was
cleared by one determined little mite.

On the train from Edmonton to Win-
nipeg the writer took a seat beside a
soldier who had returned from the
front. On his breast he wore the
beauUful distinguished service medal. :
One coat sleeve was armless, and on i
his left cheek he bore a scar that he j
would carry to his grave. He had
served his country faithfully and well.
At the first call for soldiers In August,
1914, he hastened to the recruiting
office, leaving his 320-acre farm, with
its crop ready for harvest, a full
equipment of farm Implements, plenty
of horses, and a wife. The wife should
not be last on the list for she proved
tlie master of the situation, and loy-
ally took hold of the question of pro-
duction, while her husband was on Ills
way to fight the Hun. And she suc-
ceeded. In 1915 she succeeded, and!
