I have often heard is remarked that
thisvar is unpopular. What war ever
was "popular," except to the greed,
lust and ambition that caused it?
What war ever was popular to people
who, want to live in the enjoyment of
peace, order and liberty ? The word
"popular" in connection with a war is
despicable. But never before has there
been a war where the principle of in individual
dividual individual liberty, the right to make a
home, to go about freely, to do one's
lawful business without interruption,
to protect one's women and children
against barbarity of lust and murder,
has been so definitely presented to the
American people as it is presented to
us today. Lexington and Concord
were not so bad as this. The issue
that brought us into conflict with one
another sixty years ago was not so
bad as this.

GETTING THE FEET WET.
The Part the Sidewalk Plays In Colds
and Grip Epidemics.
That a close relationship exists be between
tween between sidewalks and grip epidemics
Is asserted in Good Ilealth by Martin
Kevins. Grip and colds, says Mr. Nev Nev-ins,
ins, Nev-ins, are germ diseases. Germs, are
floating about us in the air. We
breathe them in by the thousand. "But
they are cowardly fellows. Once they
getinside a healthy body they retreat."
He goes on:
"It Is only when one thing or anoth another
er another disturbs our health equilibrium that
the 'bugs' manage to gain a foothold
in our system. It may be injudicious
eating, it may be lack of fresh air, but
most frequently it is some kind of ex
posuregetting the feet wet that lays
the fortress open to them.
"It is not at all hard to get your feet
wet. And that is where the sidewalk
comes in. The ordinary sidewalk fs a
right hand assistant when you want a
cold foot bath. It is built flat, without
any slope to drain it.
"The condition is aggravated if there
occurs a natural depression in the side
walk. The water runs into it and
stands until it is dried or Is frozen.
The ral result is a harvest of grip
epidemics and any number of colds,
bronchitis and lung troubles. And tu tuberculosis,
berculosis, tuberculosis, too this disease can often
be traced to sidewalks, since it usually
starts with some simple lung affection;
