Banking Commissioner Ad
dresses the Bankers of
The Important part bankers must
play in the next few months was dis
cussed at Philadelphia yesterday in
an address by Banking Commissioner
John S. Fisher, who struck the key
note by his plea to bankers to meet
the heavy responsibilities, and also
brought cheers from the men by the
statement that his department is to
be fully reorganized in order to help
the banking institutions to best of
his ability.
Praise of Governor Sproul by Com
missioner Fisher brought applause.
"We have a Governor in whom the
people of the state have the su
premest confidence," he said.
A quare deal will be given the
bankers of this state by the banking
department, said Mr. Fisher. ."I have
the highest regard for the personnel
of our financial institutions," he add

People Strongly Urged to Continue Precautions as Iso

Infection Proved Only Possible by I
of Vicious Infii
It has been clearly established that
the living virulent influenza germs
are readily conveyed from one person
to another.'
These germs are present in the ex
cretions of the nose, mouth and throat
or other air passage and as these
mucous excretions are discharged the
living germs go with them.
These germs are so exceedingly
ismall that the minutest even invisible
particles of this discharge may con
tain these in great numbers. These
discharges are most frequently and
widely scattered in the air as an al
most invisible spray of coughing and
sneezing unless the nose and mouth
are covered by a handkerchief or
other efficient substitute. By this
simple precaution all these dangerous
germs may be kept out of the air and
the largest risk of the conveyance to
others of this disease avoided.
Don't become alarmed. Keep your
balance, watch and give every atten
tion to your nose and throat. Keep
your mouth shut and breathe through
your nose previously applying a little
Forkola to the inside of the nostrils.
This serves to collect and destroy the
germs at the entrance to your system
and before they can do any damage

said, "You'll not be treated like
crooks; I shall start In to recognize
you as high-grade gentlemen. I want
to say to you that we are about to
ask the Legislature for some legisla
tion that will reorganize our depart
ment and bring It up to a standard
where it can render effeclent service.
"If legislation grants us that power"
We hope to catch up with the lagging
work of the department. Heretofore
there has been only on examination a

case of some banking companies the

In telling these bankers that upon
them is placed the burden of the
present, critical problems Mr. Fisher
said: "If you keep your banks clean
and solid and within the lines of
safety, you have a firm rock upon
which a pre-war foundation will be
builj. If you do loose, wild banking
more or less, you'll create sand on

tity of Forkola. Take a hot bath, as
hot as you can stand it, a hot drink,
preferably hot lemonade and a good
laxative and gro to bed. AND NOW
These symptoms show that the germ
has a foothold. Make up your mind
you'll soon be well. Keep your bed
room window open but have heat in
the room. Exercise the same care as
in measles, diphtheria or smallpox.
Don't allow a careless physician to
minimize the importa .ee of your case
but be most careful to expectorate in
gauze or In rage that must be burned
and not washed.
But above all do not forget to ap
ply Forkola liberally In the mucous
membrane of the nose and throat.
This is just as important as the hot
bath and hot drinks.
Which is a frequent complication,
while apparently very severe may dis
appear in a night under proper treat
ment and the best way for a person
afflicted with Influenza to avoid Pneu
monia is to go to bed at once and stay
there until the physician permits you
to get up. While In bed the back,
throat and chest should be liberally
covered with Forkola and flannel ap
plied to en sure the necessary heat for
its absorption. Allow a little to melt
in your mouth three or four times
daily. It soothes and heals the in
flamed membranes and permits the
easy expulsion of phlegm.
IMPOHTANT—in some districts the
demand for Forkola has been so heavy
that there is a temporary shortage.

"Hello, Dad!"
The voice was familiar to Dr. J.

uncommon experiences of any lad who
went to war from Harrisburg. He

with the First Gas and Flame Regi

Unit, after training at Wahington
with his comrades, who were mostly
American college lads. This unit was
hurried across and chummed in with
the British in the Flanders front at
the most deadly moment, and though
not long trained, made good, .with
bolls on. They handled gas, bombs
and Stokes trench mortars, and were
sopn shifted to Frensh forces at
Chateau Thierry, being on the job/at

year of the fiercest combat and never
got a wound, though baptized in
Flanders Field, and for one year in
the very vortex of battle.

Seborrhea Kills the Hair
Fame Kills Seborrhea
Seborrhea is an old trouble to
which cientist hwe given a
new name.
And science has fourtd in Famo
a new way of overcoming it.
Seborrhea is the disease which
kills the roots of the hair by •
means of the deadly dandruff
It does to the hair What pyor
rhea does to the teeth.
Famo is a formula worked out
in one of the great pharmaceuti
cal houses of Detroit.
Three years were retjuired to
develop Famo.
It proved its efficacy before it
was offered to the public.
The way in which Famo does its
work is almost unbelievable.
Transformation is
Wonderful 4
Almost at once your eyes testify
to the transformation.
New hair grows like the hair of
healthy children
The scalp becomes like the scalp
of a baby. All itching of the
scalp is stopped.
Famo brings back the look of
health by a softness and lustre
beyond vtords to describe.
Famo Destroys Bacilli
Famo removes the obstacle to
growth, when it kills the sebor
rhea (dandruff) bacilli
Freed from the bondage of dis
ease, the hair leaps into luxuri
In women the change is won
