"Hospital on Wheels" Goes to
Accident Victims at Eno!a
Car in Railroad Yards is Equipped to Care For Men Injured
While at T heir Work
Taking a victim of an accident to a
hospital Is not strange, but taking a
hospital to tho victim is a novelty.
Yet this latter is done almost every
time a man is injured or becomes ser
iously ill suddenly in the. Pennsyl
vania yards at Hiiola. Soverjll months
ago the company had an old style
passenger coach equipped as a hos
pital. The car was divided into two
parts, one section being for victims
who must be carried to some city hos
pital or who aro to be taken to a
point from which they can be sent
home conveniently. This part of the
hospital car is equipped with cots
and in cupboards are cotton and rub
ber blankets, used on the cots.
In the second section of the oar
is an operating table and other ar
ticles which are brought into l'requen't
use in an operating room. Medicine
c&binets and cabinets for sterilized
bandages, cottons and other articles
also occupy that section of the car.
In . the corner of the room is a stove
which keeps the car at an even tem
perature, day and night. Water, hot
and cold, is kept in the car at all
Hospital Cur in Use
An accident victim, whose injuries
require an operation at once can be
placed on the operating table and
treated while on his way to a hos-
Why Suffer With Skin Humors When
You Cau Heal Them So Quickly?
Don't stand that itching eczema tor
ment one day longer. Go to the near
est druggist and get a jar of Resinol
Ointment and a cake of Resinol Soap.
Bathe the eczema patches with Resi
nol Soap and hot water. Then dry,
and apply a little Resinol Ointment.
The torturing itching and burning
stop Instantly, you no longer have to
dig and scratch, sleep becomes pos
sible, and healing begins. Soon, the
ugly, tormenting eruptions disappear
completely and for good.
Resinol Soap (26c.), and Resinol
Ointment (50c and $1), are also
' speedily effective for pimples, black
heads, dandruff, sores and many forms
of piles. Prescribed by doctors for tho
past eighteen years, and sold by prac
tically every druggist in tho United
States. For trial free, write to Dept.
41-It, Resinol, Baltimore, Md. Don't
be deceived by preparations similar in
name or appearance, offered as "just
like Resinol," by a few unscrupulous
dealers. They are crude imitations
upon which such dealers can make a
few cents extra profit—at your ex
In the majority of when a
man is injured One of the shifting en
gines is coupled to the hospital car
and the latter is taken to the victim.
The injured man is placed on a cot
and the "hospital-on-wheels" takes
him to the Harrisburg hospital. En
route he is given rcstoratiives and
first aid treatment and made as com
fortable as possible.
At wrecks where difficulty is ex
perienced in getting the injured to
hospitals, the new car is expected to
be a great help in saving lives.
"First Ahl" Men on Board
On board the car at all times is a
man trained in "first aid" treatment
and the railroad company's physician
at Enola can be gotten to the car
within a few minutes so that very lit
tle time elapses between the time the
man is injured and the time treat
ment begins.
The car is said to be the only one
on the system but because of the suc
cess at Enola it is said that other yards
will be similarly equipped.
Not only does the car serve as a
hospital, but in emergencies it can
be turned into a lunch room. At all
times provisions are carried on board
for 100 persons so that at wrecks in
jured perso/is or company employes
can be fed.

Since brown or yellow, over-red or

A Tonic For the Nerve..
Nervous people who have not yet
developed a disease that can be rec
ognized and treated by the medical
profession have 'the greatest trouble
in finding relief. Irritation, headache,
sleeplessness, nervous dyspepsia, all
these discomforts make life miserable
but are endured rather than run a doc
tor's bill without definite hope of re
Every such sufferer should know
the danger of such a condition of the
nervous system. Nervous debility and
even paralysis may easily result if
the tone of the nerves is not restored.
The one big fact that brings hope
and relief is that the nerves can be
restored by building up the blood. It
cannot be too often repeated that only
through the blood can nourishment
and medicine reach the nerves. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills make the biood
rich and red and quickly restore vi
tality and energy to a weak nervous
system. A nervous person who gives
these pills a trial is almost certain to
see good results and, what is more,
the benefit will be lasting because the
trouble is attacked at its root. Thin
blood makes weak nerves. Building up
the blood restores the nerve force.
Get a box of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills to-day and write the Dr. Wil
liams Medicine Co., Schenectady,

To Grow Hair on
A Bald Head
Thousands of people suffer from
baldness and falling hair who, having
tried nearly every advertised halr
touic and hair-grower without result.*,
have resigned themselves to baldness
and its attendant discomfort: Yet their
case Is not hopeless; the following
'simple home prescription has made
hair grow after years of baldness, and
is also unequaled for restoring gray
hair to its original color, stopping
hair from falling out and destroying
the dandruff germ. It will not make
the hair greasy, and can be put up by
any druggist: Bay Rum, 6 ounces;
Lavona do Composee, 2 ounces; Men
thol Crystals, one-half drachm. If you
wish it perfumed, add 1 drachm of your
favorite perfume. This preparation is
highly recommended by physicians and
specialists, and is absolutely harmless,
as It contains none of the poisonous
wood alcohol so frequently found in
hair tonics. —Advertisement.
