THE FIRST CONCERN.
— Diabetes is a condition resulting
“rom inability of the system to
“handle properly the sugar which is
consumed and which is essential to
“health. In this disease the body be-
comes overloaded with sugar and
glucose. Other foods cannot be as-
:gimilated properly and digestion
Persons who have a habit of over-
eating and who are overweight are
Subject to it. This tendency to
overweight appears to “run in fam.
jlies” and so, in a sense, diabetes
may be considered to have a heredi-
“tary nature. Obesity is usually a
‘forerunner of diabetes.
It is more frequent, too, among
‘people who are mental workers,
rather than among manual laborers.
Nervous influences have their part
‘to play in the disease as well. It
ds probable that disturbances In
the nervous system interfere with
‘the chemistry of the body.
There are upwards of a million
people in the United States today
“who have diabetes. Some types are
‘very mild in their nature, while
-others are more severe.
It is encouraging to know that
‘through a carefully planned diet
and the use of insulin treatments,
the disease may be kept in control.
If a patient will follow certain
health rules, he may live long and
enjoy a useful life.
The use of insulin in diabetes dates
from 1921, when Dr. Frederick G.
Banting, in the Toronto General
hospital, made his discovery, He
proved it possible to take insulin
“from the bodies of young animals
and use it in injections for the
successful treatment of this disease.
Its use makes possible the burn-
ing of sugar in the body, and it
also assists in the disposition of fat
This insulin treatment is not taken
independently of, but in connection
with a proper and limited diet.
The diabetic patient must first of
all follow a carefully planned diet,
which is outlined by his physician.
“The prescribed diet is taken under
the most precise regulations. Much
can be accomplished by such a re-
gime. The diet necessarily differs
with each individual.
All reasonable foods may be in-
cluded but the total quantity should
he strictly limited. The patient must
be extremely temperate in the use
of sweets. Unless frowned upon by
‘the doctor, they may be had in sim-
ple desserts, but not between meals.
Highly seasoned foods or sauces
cannot be taken. Over-indulgence
of every kind must be avoided.
~The older person should strive to
keep his weight within normal
bounds, and this may be accom-
plished by exercise and a limited
«diet. But in these matters medical
‘advice is important.
The hope of humanity in its fight
against the cancer scourge lies in
‘research and education of the public
more than in unlikely discovery of
“cures,” Congress was told after
partially successful results of an
experimental treatment were dis.
~closed to it.
Dr. W. B. Coffey, chief surgeon
‘of the Southern Pacific Hospital,
‘San Francisco, told of beneficial ef-
fects in 1,500 cancer patients fol-
Jowing injection of a new extract
‘developed by him and his associate,
Dr. John J. Humber.
He and several other world au-
‘thorities on cancer appeared before
a special Senate Commerce sub-
committee to urge the Federal gov-
‘ernment to help in research. They
-approvd the Ransdell bill to create
‘a national institute of health under
the U. 8. surgeon general with
wide powers of promoting and aid-
dng research into disease.
~The medical profession already
has “cures” for most cancer cases,
if they are treated in early stages,
by surgery or radiation, which in a
‘combination of X-Ray and radium

-Johns Hopkins University specialist,
‘told the committee.
Coffey and Humbert emphasized
‘they had no cancer “cure” but that
‘their experiments so far indicate

has the ability to stop pain and
heck the growth of some malignant
Doctor Bloodgood said the in-
crease in cancer in recent years, is

(Copyright, 1917, Western Newspaper Union.)
Economy is one of the greatest of
virtues but false economy is no more
a virtue than anything else that is
false. To be able to economize wisely
is one of the greatest blessings that
one can have, for it is the prerequisite
to thrift and well-being. Too many
persons, however, who think they have
found the secret of true economy are
practicing a false economy which i#
worse than wilful waste.
For instance, the man who buys a
stove from a mail order house for $9
because he thinks he would have to
pay $10 for one if he purchased it
from his home merchant, is practicing
a false economy, for the chances are
that he would save more than $1 in
the end if he purchased the $10 stove
from the local hardware leader.
There are several reasons why .this
is false economy. The first one is that
dollar for dollar, the greater part of
the merchandise sold by the mail or-
der houses is of less value than that
sold by the retail merchants of the
smaller communities. The mail order
business, as a whole is built upon
cheapness. In order to attract cus-
tomers the catalogue houses m sell
goods cheaply and'in order to dif that
they must sell cheap goods. heir
business is built up on price and not
on quality. The retail hardware deal-
er, like retail dealers in other lines,
probably can match the prices ef the
mail order houses. He probably has
a $9 stove which he can sell to the
man who wants to get a stove for $9.
The trouble is that the man who buys
from the mail order house does not
distinguish between price and quality
Thinks He Is Economizing.
The man who buys the $9 stove
from the mail order house probably
would not buy a $9 stove from his
local merchant for in the latter case
he would see just what he was buying
and might realize that the $9 stove
would not meet his needs. He orders
a $9 stove from the mall order house,
however, just because the price is $9
The Key to Better Business
LIFE IS A GIVE AND TAKE PROPOSITION
and not because he has any assurance
that the stove will meet his needs. He
thinks he is saving a dollar or two by
buying this stove instead of paying
$10 or $11 to the home merchant for
one that he has seen and knows will
give him satisfaction. The chances
are that when the stove arrives and
he has used it for a short time he
will realize that he has practiced false
economy—that it would have been
more economical in the end for him to
pay a dollar or two more to his hom¢
merchant and get an article that war
cuaranteed by the dealer,
The patron of the mail order house,
also, often fails to take the matter of
transportation charges into considera-
tion when making his purchase. He
sees only the price of the article as
listed in the mail order catalogue and
does not think of the express or freight
‘charges, which with the cost of a
money order and postage often make
the total cost of the article greater
than the price at which the same thing
could have been purchased at the local
store. Another case of false economy.
Buying merchandise of poor quality
because the price is low is often false
economy when the purchase is made
at the home stores but it is doubly so
when the merchandise is bought from
a mail order house.
home one can be reasonably sure that
the article purchased at a low price,
while there is no such assurance when
it is bought by mail on the “sight un:
seen” plan. ;
Idea Is Exploded.
The idea that the mail order houses
sell the same quality of goods at lower
prices than the home merchants is
quickly exploded when one learns of
the large profits that are made by the
majority of the mail order houses and
the large selling expense to which they
‘are subjected. The large mail order
houses spend hundreds of thousands
of dollars annually for advertising and
the selling expenses of the smaller
concerns are proportionately as large.
Their other expenses, such as rent,
taxes and labor, are also higher than
those of the local retail merchants, in
proportion to the business which they
- do. Im spite of these heavy expenses,
the mail order houses distribute mil-
lions of dollars in dividends among
their stockholders. In one large mail
order concern the profits of the stock-
holders, in cash and stock dividends,
have aggregated as much as 1,000 per
cent on the capital invested in the
short period of nine years. This does
not indicate that the mail order houses
are in business for their health and
are giving away merchandise to their
The mail order houses have capi-
talized the desire to economize that is
inherent in almost every one. By plac-
ing price above quality and making
cheapness the fundamental element in
their business they have inculcated in
the minds of their patrons the idea
that they are economizing when they
buy cheap goods at cheap prices.
