THE lOLA DAILY REGISTER, SATURDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 26.1912. What Does a Change Mean For YOU? With our abundant crops and prosperity in all lines of. business in the countrv, our farmers, our laborers, and our business men are going to think twice before voting for a change in the roj)ublican managcincnt of our national affairs. The following wise words of Chairman Ilillcs, of the national republican commit­ ter, arc wortirnondering over by the voter: Two groups of zealous jwlilicians are crying to the country for :i (l':m '.ri. in nur natinnal administration. They waiit to take charge of the nation. Tbiij w^nt to adniini.«:ter pul)lip atfairs. And Ihey promise wildly, eagerly, what thftj will do in return— if only tli-y arc granted control. l-'rom Maine to California, their words fill tlie air. And have you. the wnikiTs and taxpayers, whose alfairs these gen- ll'iiicn would control, slopped to . analyze their prolTers and promis?s? You shoujii. Ti. the politicians themselves these pnilTers and promisi -i are of no si)ecial importance. They have nothing to lose. They have tirrylhing to gain. Kven if tliey lo.se, they win; for the contest will keep them in the limelight.' l>ut lor you, the workers ami ta.xpayers. this contest is serious busincs-:. amUyou .<ho\dd weigh the cons<'t|uenees with a serious mind. Don't take mere words. Se<'k fact.*. Out of this whirlwind^f language which the "spellbinder.*" send beating about your ears, what is it that stands out. first and all the lime? "Ue want a change in Washington." • A change for \that ? To what ? The present administration, after nearly four years' hard work, has finally succeeded in restoring the country's business to a prosperous basis. The tiiills are riinuitifj full linie. Miiic.< are operating all their shifts. Fiutorii's are uorking to capnrity^ Commerre is thriving. The (ouiitri/js free of labor troubles and thiaurial troubles. The working man is steadily gaining ix'tter wages. The farmer is growing sitailily more prosperous. The" market for farm products has never In-en so broad and generous. The railroads report the heaviest freigiit and passenger traflic in tli-'ir e.vistence. Shipping is everywhere active. Public works on a great scale are everywhere under way. Trade is moving smuDihly. in ever-increasing volume. The savings banks arc over- llowing with money. The United States is on the threshold of the greatest boom in its hist<iry. Wiliiin si.v tnonths, under present conditions, we will dwarf the gi-eat period that followed the Spanish War. .Vnil our jirosperity will be here to stay, for we are on sounder ground than we were in 'flS. The iru:t jiroblem b.as been settled—and scttJed right. ^'Big Rusiness" has l>een put in its proper place, and this without halting industry or disorganizing alfairs. The currency question is —understood as it never has been, anil will be solved along sound lines as soon as the heat of partisan ]>oIitieal controversy dies down. The tariff is gradually being placed on a busines.s basis, and soon will be out of politics, as it shoulil. Kverything is shaping to give the .Vmeriean .peo|)le a long, unbroken. unparallele<l period of peace and plenty. .\nil at this time of all others, along come thi-se political gentlemen shouting for a change. Do you went to change? Do you want to check prosperity just as you are about to pluck its choicest fruits? Would you. the workers who must pay, commit the mad folly of taking your government out of tried and proven hands and turning it over to the self-seekers who are clamoring for its control? When President Taft took over the govi-rnment the countr)- was prostrate. Industry was paralyzed. Business was chaotic, uncertain, suspicious. Millions were out of employment Investors, wherever possible, had withdrawn their capital. Enterprise Tfas dead. All this was the result of the panic of 1907, the "talking panic." The "Rich ilan's" Panic, it was called. But do you remember any poor man who was not hurt ? It took the Taft administration over three years to repair the damage of thi§ panic. It required infinite patience, skilful management at home and abroad, unflinching enterprise, good judgment and vast prudence to bring the country out of that black pit. And now that the pit is- covered, and the country is basking oncfe more in the level sunshine of prosperity, do you want to take a chance on being thrown back? Do you want to take a chance on being talked into another and a needless panic? The question is not to be settled by talk, no matter how smart. The huzzahs of the hustings may make sweet music, but in the background of the future you may hear the mutterings of a people unemployed. Your_family stands with you at the dividing line, which has happiness and prosperity on one side and unhappiness and even want on the other. If vou are a tramp, without kindred and witliout responsibility, by all means follow the adventurers. But if you own a stake in the countrj, if you have kith or kin dependent on the job yon hold, weigh carefully the words and deeds of those who would lead you in a mad gallop to the precipice of experimental government Remember, a changie at W'ashington would mean everything for them. But what would it mean for you f Would Mr. Taft's defeat help you? Would the theories, untried and unproven, on which the poli- 'ticians are seeking to ride into office, benefit your wife and family? Brush aside all the fine language of the orators long enough to dig out answers to these questions. You will then have a reasonably safe guide on election day, for, like true charity, true politics begins at home. The intelligent man votes for that which is best for himself and those dependent on him, and not for that M -hirh is best only for the other fellow. He is not misled by the shadow of the bone in the water. The .American people, for the /ir.*/ time in years, have the bone of prosperity firmly between their teeth. .\re they prepared} lite the dofj ill Ih" fnlde. In drop it. to rhnse elu.<ire shadows? Home Health Club By Dr. David H. Beeder, Laporte, ladJana. Tell your Wants to 20.000 People thronsrh The Re&isti^r WItoopine Congh. Tills disease wlilch is ' peculiar to childhood. Is divided into three stages for convenience. First, or incubation I»eriod, is the period between exposure and full development of the symptoms. This may last from a few days to two weeks, or even longer. Second stage is the period for full development of the disease; duration of whic his one to two weeks and longer. Third stage Is that of convalescence and may extend over a period of several weeks. If the disease is contracted in the fall, the child may continue to cough throughout the winter months. The complications arc many. Some of the more severe are: broncno- pneumonia, convulFlons. pleurisy, tuberculosis, acute inriammation, of the kidneys nda rupture. N\Tiooping cough Is a' much more dangerous disease than is generally supposed . Under improper management complications may arise which are very distressing and at times ruinous to the child's fufurp health, or may cause the wreck of same spe<*ial function. Of children under one year, it Is estimated that 2n per cent die, between one and two l.'i per cent. It Is infinitely better to prevent the disease by avoiding »'x |)08urc, or when exposed, by instituting abortive treatment, than to allow it to become fully developed. if wbnoplni; coiith Is iirevalent in the neighbiThood, the following is a good preventive tre.itnient: Give to rhildron under twelve years of age. fi X tablets of Ferrum Phos. and Kali Mur, 1 to ,1 tablets o feach, de|iendlng upon the age of the child, 4 times dally. See to If th.nt their bowels arc acting normally. ,ind iirevent tlifui from eating pastries and rich, heavy foods. The first stage is more catarrhal than otherwise, the onset being similar to that of a common cold or acute catarrh, such as sneezing ,watery eye slight fever or chilliness. Indisposition and frequent coughing. Treatment in this stage if carefully and sensibly given, will generally ward off a severe attack. The patient should be seasonably clothed, especially the feet should be kept warm and dry. After a dilute vinegar bath and a good rubbing with olive oil, or almond oil, put the child to bed and apply dry heat to the feet. Give a cup of hot ginger tea with Mi grai nof cayenne pepper added. To relieve the paroxysm of cough ing. give from the twelve tissue elements (obtained in a Homeopathic drug store) Kail Mur., or Xat. Mur., or both In tablets form of the 6th tritura­ tion, 2 to 4 tablets according to the age of the child, 6 tives daily. Another good Home tlealth Club treatment, which will often relieve is the following: fhestnut leaves. 2 oz.; niack C:o- hesh, 1 o/..; I.«belia Herb, oz. Pour over this a pint of boiling wafer and let It steep for half an hour and then add two jiounds of sugar. Dose: One teaspoonful every hour,, and more frequenily during the spell of cotighing? The second stag^—If it has not been turned aside-is extremely distressing to th erhild and alarming to the inexperienced attendants. It is in this stage that the cbild is seized with paroxysms ' of "whooping" If It; "whoops" at all during the disease. , The "whoop" is produced by the air I being expelled from the lungs by sev- ; eral rapid and violent expirations, followed by a rush of air into the lungs, producing the characteristic, prolonged "whooping." These paroxysms are very weakening, putting the heart, blood vessels .and whole muscular sys tern on a severe strain. At times, it seems as If the child will suffocate., but this lasts only a few minutes, ati most, then suddenly disappears. The' poraxysni may eb followed by expectorations of mucus^ vomiting and by evacuation of bladder and bowels. This stage of the disease. If successfully handled, lasts about ten days and must run its course. The same treatment as administered i in the first stage, is about all that can be done. The diet should be very plain and nutritious. Thethird stage Is only that of con- i valescence, but it Is a critical period. Care as to eating and exposure must be taken to avoid complications that are always apt to arise, because of the weakened condition which the whooping cough superinduces. CLUB yOTES. Dear Doctor: I am a carpenter who works hard and am in the open aid; do not dring or smoke: am five feet, ten inches In height, and weigh 190 pounds, bowels regular, used to be a i great eater, but try to cut it down a | lot i Had typhoid fever and rheumatic | fever about 20 years ago, and ever since have at intervals bad spells. They start with an intense headache over and In my eyes, my head sweats and I feel like vomiting, but never do: then I get a dull pain in the small of my back and a burning pain in the ! knee and sometimes they are very painful. The head gets a bit better but I have iio memory and get confused and excited. If I do not cover : my head with a lot of bed clothing, ! while in bed, I am almost sure to i wake up with one of those fierce head ; aches. 1 forgot to mention that I am | 49 years old. W. H. You direct and concise your case, good. You seem to understand the Importance of outdoor exercise, or work, of keeping the eliminatlve or-i gans active and not over eating. From : your letter you seem to be a man of _ good habits and one would think that' a man with your knowledge should be In good health. The statement that yon had typhoid fever some twenty years ago given an I incite to your trouble, I imagine that nimn thorough examination It would be found that you have what is called ti "Typhoid spine**: In very severe, cases of typhoid fever the Inflamma- ; tlon in the bowels Is so great and the | shock so profound that a sort of see-' ondary Inflammation Is "set upon at' the origin In the spine of the nerves, i which supply the bowels . The result i is a stiffening of the spine. So I j really think that a good deal of yonr j trouble is due to the typhoid fever and I JMIdiigBlPiiiler AbsMdin^Pine There is a remarkable interest in Home Baking and Cooking throughout the land. This is a most encouraging indication that the battle against Impure, improper food is going to be won. The credit for the victory will belong to the women of the country. Home cooking has the backing of science and the approval of fashion. It adds to housekeeping a pride; to our food,healthfulness. It is acknowledged by experts, and by the women who know, that the best cooking in the world to-day is with the aid cf Royal Baking Powder. rheumatism you had twenty years ago. The trouble seems to be sort of a periodical storm. The habit of covering your head at night with bed clothes is very, very , bad to say the least In my opinion i i that would help to bring on a head-' I would advise you to join a good : ache. Instead of preventing it. If you turner society, which has a'competent i do not care to Join a turner social, I physical director, as I believe a sys-) would advise you to purchase a vlbra- tem of evercises directed toward break ; tor for giving vibratory stinralations. ing up the stiffness o fthe spine and ; if you buy one of these machines.
