State, county and city authorities
are doing much excellent work in |
fighting the white plague. But they |
cannot do all. Their work will be a
success only as public opinion is en- |
lightened and people made to see the
vital need of better health habits. |
The State can legislate but laws will |
do little good if the people are mot |
educated and trained. Private health !
agencies, such as the Pennsylvania |
Society for the Prevention of Tuber- |
culosis, find their chief work in edu-
cational propaganda. Their efforts |
are fully endorsed by the State !
Health Department. In fact State |
health officials say they can do little;
if the people are not educated by such |
agencies as the Tuberculosis Society. |
National and State health authorities
have joined in asking private health |
agencies to enlarge their program for |
next year. {
The Red Cross seal of 1919 has a
particular appeal for children. Santa
Claus, printed in red with white
fringes on his outfit, and a white
beard, stands with a full pack at the
top of a chimney ready to descend. |
The child knows what it means when !
Santa Claus comes down the chimney. !
The seal is a link in the work of
training children toward better health
habits. It has been proven that a
large percentage of children become
infected with the germs of tuberculo-
sis and unless they are taught to
make and keep themselves strong and
of them will die before

Truth Triumphs
A truthful statement of a Belle-
fonte citizen, given in his own words,
should convince the most skeptical
about the merits of Doan’s Kidney
Pills. If you suffer from backache,
nervousness, sleeplessness, urinary
disorders or any form of kidney ills,
use a tested kidney medicine.
A Bellefonte citizen tells of Doan’s
Kidney Pills.
Could you demand more convincing
proof of merit?
M. H. Daley, railroad man, 213 E.
Lamb St., Bellefonte, says: “My back
and kidneys were in a very serious
condition, when I began taking Doan’s
Kidney Pills. They gave me great
benefit and 1 was more than pleased
with the results. I recommend Doan’s
Kidney Pills whenever I have an op-

It is an inflammation of the mucous

purifies the blood, removes the cause

relief. It has been entirely satisfac-
