I found a treatment jLhat cured mo

Riven It to a number who Wore ter

Dr. Eliot for Prohibi

president emeritus of Harvard Uni

committee on legal affairs, Massa

in behalf of Senate Bill 68, an act
to carry into effect so far as the
commonwealth of Massachusetts is
concerned tho Eighteenth amend

Mr Chairman and Gentlemen of the
I am quite convinced, from what I
have already hoard here today, that
I am incompetent to offer even a
Dingle word of advice to the Commit
tee with regard to their legal or con
stitutional action. Neither am I an
accredited witness here as a life-long
believer in prohibition. On the con
trary, I favored for many years the
local ontion law for Massachusetts:
but under that law I voted steadily
for no license In Cambridge. My ob
servation and experience as a sum
mer resident In Maine since 1871
satisfied mo that no State prohibi
tion law could possibly be enforced,
except in communities where a de
sided majority of the voters favored
enforcement. It seemed to me that
national action was essential to the
creation and enforcement of an ef
fective prohibition law. Therefore I
never became an advocate of prohibi
tion until tho adoption of the Consti
tutional Amendment which made
prohibition the law of the land. Ever
j since congress enacted a law to en-
lorce proamnion i uuvu uouii u, vurm
advocate of similar enforcement acts
in all tho States; and I have deeply
regretted that Massachusetts has
held back in the support of the won-

derful reform which national prohibi
tion promises.
It is a matter for profound aston
ishment and gratitude that this great
est of social and industrial reforms
in our time has gained such broad
popular support within the last ten
or twelve years, and especially since
the outbreak of the Eurcpeon War. I
had opportunities to observe in 'sev
eral places the starting of the move
ment in our southern states from
ten to twenty years ago. It began
there among the most thoughtful
white citizens, because of the in
creasing intoxication of negroes and
poor whites, and also because of the
prevalence of various crimes of vio
lence in both races, including mur
derous conflicts between members of
the two races who had been drinking
together. A little later the whole
country got a strong impression in
favor or promoition rrom tne experi nf tho little American armv
which was stationed along the Moxi-
can border to prevent the raids of ir
responsible bandits into our ter
ritory. You remember that that
small army of not more than twenty
thousand men contained both regi
ments of the regular army and regi
ments of the, national guard . from
several states. The officers Of the
regular army 'took no measures "jtfe
prevent the establishment of saloons
and brothels m the immediate vicin
ity of their camps. Some national1
guard officers, on the contrary, took;
effective measures to prevent easy
access by- their men to bars and
houses" of prostitution. In fact, they
drove away to a distance both)
saloons and houses of prostitution,,
and prevented both of these nefarious'
businesses from succeeding. In cbn-
sequence, our whole people learnt
that to keep a body of troops in ef
fective condition it was necessary to
defend them against both alcoholism
and venereal diseases. We had not
all forgotten the published reports
of Henry L. Stimson, Secretary of
War under President Taft, thatv the
American army was ftio worst in the
world in respect to the prevalence oJE
venereal diseases. We. all welcomed
heartily the war prohibition meas
ures which kent the camns of the
national army in this country and the
communities surrounding them com
paratively free from' both saloons and
brothels. The secretaries of war and
the navy and the army and navy be
came of the opinion that prohibition
was. necessary m order that wfl.mihf
be enabled to put two or three mil
lion men into France fit to fight.
That opinion went all over the coun
try, and became the strong founda
tion of the popular movement whinii
carried the 18th amendment of the
constitution and tho corresponding
legislation in congress.
It is interest in this tho mnat .,
markable physical and social reform
ever auemptea by a free people
which brings me hither. As a
Massachusetts man nPoiiamn,i
see Massachusetts leading in all
promising measures for the promo
tion of the public welfare, I deplore
the fact that Massachusetts, of all
states in the union, is holding back
from doing her part in the prosecu
f fw,8 reform-. Holding
has been doing For the honor of
the commonwealth, for the credit of
its peop e; I plead with thig commit
tee on legal affairs, that that hold
ing back be stopped. Let Massa
chusetts join forthwith the long pre
cession of sister states that have? al-
rea?l ??actert enforcement laws to
match the national law. Let Massa-
KS; ?ntce take hor oi shS

"I am eighty-three years old and I
doctored for rheumatism ever since I
camo out qf tho ,army over fifty years
ago';, writes J. B. Ashelman. "Like
man y4 others, .1 spent money freely for
so-caJIJifc'd 'cures', and I have read about
Uric Acid' until I could almost taste
it. I could not sleep nights or walk
without, pain; my hands were so soro
and stiff -Iob$lfl.'hot hold a pen. But
now.Jifc if by-magic, I am again In ac
tive business and can walk with easo
or write all day with comfort. Friends
are surprised at the change."
Mr; A&helman is only one of thou
sands who suffered for years, owing1 to
tne general beiier -in tho old, raise
theory that "Uric Acid" causes rheuma
tism. This erroneous belief Induced
him and legions of unfortunate men
and women to take wrong treatments.
You might Just as well attempt to put
out a fire with oil as to try and get rid
of your rheumatism, neuritis and llko
complaints, by taking treatments sup-
Bosed to drive-Uric Acid out of your
lood and body.- Many physicians and
scientists now know that Uric Acid
never did, "never can and never will
cause rheumatism; that it Is a natural
and necessary constituent of the blood;
that ft -Is found In every new-born
babe; and that without it wo could not
live.!. .... -, -
"These statements may seem strango
to some' forks who have all along
been ..led-. to pellevo in tho old "Uric
Acid" humbug. It took' Mr. Ashelman
fifty years to find- out this truth. He
learned how to get rid of the true
cause of his rheumatism, other disor
ders, and recover his strength from
"The- Inner Mysteries," a remarkable
book now being distributed free by an
authority who , devoted, over twenty
years, to tho scientific study of this
particular trouble.
.NOTE: If any reader of "The Com
moner" wishes the book that reveals
these facts' regarding the true cause,
and cure of rheumatism, facts that
were overlooked by doctors and sci
entists for centuries past, simply send
a post card or letter to H. P. Clear
