Mr3. Viola French.
Danville, 111. "I think Dr. ricrce's
Golden Medical Discovery Is tho best
medicine I have over used or board of.
I learned of It through a friend when
I was In a weak and highly nervous
condition. I bad lost Interest In al
most everything Just dragged on In a
listless sort of way. A few doses of
the 'Discovery' gave me u brighter
view of life and I began to gain
Htrongth. No one but those who havo
used this helpful medicine are In a
position to speak fullv of Its merit."

World war won Imperishable re
known for his country and for him
self as a ftehtlnR mnn. Now hero
are tho cold-blooded facts nbout tho
American mnn of flRhtlnR nRQ as re
vealed by a study of tho record pa
pers of 1,000,000 men examined for
service. Tho study was mado by
MnJ. Oon. Mcrrltto V. Ireland, sur
coon Keneral of the United StutcB
army. A summarj by General Ireland of some of
the IntorestlnK facts disclosed by that study In
cludes the following:
"During tho war over 'J.000,000 men wero en
rolled In tho military service In tho army and
Bllshtly over 000.000 In the navy and marlno
corps," he said.
"After Dec. 15, 1017, tho basic classification of
all registrants was first as to their economic avail
ability for military service. All who wero found
to bo available nt onco wero classed aB Class 1.
Tho total number of these men of thu first nnd
second reglstrntlnns, and Including all who went to
camp, prior to Dec. lf, 1017, mm ,70 1,000. Of
this group over n half million, OHO.OOO, wero reject
ed by their locnl boards as physically unfit for all
military fiorvlce. Of those considered physically fit,
amounting to approximately 3,1200,000, over 2,700,
000 entrained for tho military camps.
"Tho physical examinations of theso CInss 1
men by the locnl nnd enmp examining bonrds
showed that 47 per cent of them hnd n military
defect of sufllclent lmportunco to note on tho re
port of tho examinations.
"Tho percentage of tho defectlvo men vnrlctl
materially according to tho section of tho Unltod
States from which thoy wero drnwn. Tho num
ber of defectlvo men varies by states from 04 per
cent In Ithodo Island to 5 per cent in Kansas.
Rhode Island, tho most urban of all states, whoso
population Is largely ongnged In manufacturing,
stood nt tho top, lnrgoly becauso of tho defectlvo
and non-resistant stock which has been drawn to
this state. Kansns, on tho other hand, Is largely
agricultural nnd nuch of Its population us la of
foreign origin 1b of tho moro robtiRt type. Tho
percentage of tho native born in Kansas is 03 per
cent and In Ithodo Island 20.4 per cent.
"Of all CInss 1 men 21 per cent wero found phys
Ically unfit for nil military service, or n llttlo moro
thnn ono In flvo wert physically unlit to perform
nny typo of military sen-Ice either nt homo or
abroad. Tho moro important causes of rejection
"Organic disease of tho heart, 11.5 per cent of
tho total casca of rejections; tuberculosis, 0.3 per
cent; errors of refraction, 8.4 per cent; under
weight, 7.8 per cent; mentnl deficiency, 4.5 per
cent ; hernln, 4,3 per cent ; flnt foot, 3.0 per cent ;
defectlvo and deficient tooth, 3.2 per cent, nnd
defectlvo speech and bearing, 2.0 per cent. Of
tho Inrgo class of diseases tho defects of tho bones
and organs of locomotion ranked first, 17.2 per cent
of the total causes of rejections; diseases of tho
heart and blood vessels second, 15 per cent; dis
eases of tho eyo third, 12.0 per cent, and tuber
culosis fourth, 0.3 per cent.
"nbodo Island, which had tho largest number
nf defectlvo" nlso hnd tho lnrgest number of men
rejected. Torty-two per cent, or almost one-half
of nil between tho ages of 21 and 80, who wero ex
amined In thnt stnte, wore rejected. In Wyoming
only 18 per cent wero found to bo physically unfit.
"More men from tho cities wero rejected, 23 per
cent, than from the rural districts and smnll towns,
CO per cent, due not only to tho environmental
condition In tho Inrgo cities, but again nlso to the
character of the foreign population which bad con
gregated In them.
"A defoct of Homo character was noted In 80
per cent of all men from Rhode Island, whllo thoso
from Knnsas hnd only n llttlo over half this num
bor, 42 per cent. Tho physique of tho population
of tho vnrloua states varied even to as great nn
extent as the number of physical defects did.
Rhode Islnnd had tho largest relative number of
men who were below tho required mllltnry height,
tho largest percentage of thoso below the required
mllltnry weight for their height, and also the larg
est percentago of those who wero regarded as
obese. In other words, the population, which was
composed to n considerable extent of South Euro
peans and French-Canndlans, ran to the extreme.
Tho men from certnln of the other states, and
especially from the North Central and Northwest
ern states, were much bettor proportioned.
"It was a matter of surprise to many that th
actual gain In weight of tho men whllo In military
service was only about three und one-third pounds.
There were premature reports of average gains of
from 12 to 15 pounds. What actually happened,
however, wns that tho lean men became moro ro
bust, while those who wero overweight wero
trained down to their proper proportion.
"The average height or stature of 1,000,000 men
was 07.10. The shortest men enmo from Rhode
Islnnd, G0.4 Inches; tho tallest from Texas, 03.4
Inches. Considering the population groups, the
tallest men came from tho mountain nrca of North
Carolina. These men were of Scotch descent and
averaged 0S.07 Inches.
"Tho average weight for tho United States was
141.51 pounds. The hcnvlest men wero from South
Dukotn, 140.00 pounds, and tho lightest from Ithodo
Island, 130.44 pounds.
"In each 100 men from tho urban districts there
wero 01 defects noted, and from tho rural 53. Chi
cago, 02, and Huston, 00, wero above tho average
for tlie cities, while Philadelphia, 00, and New
York, (X), were both below the average.
"Of the Individual defects, that which was re
corded most frequently wns flat feet, 11.7 per cent
of the men exniulned. Nineteen nnd six-tenths per
cent of all defects noted wero for this one.
"The effect of race upon tho relative frequency
of this defect Is shown by the fact that tho sec
tions with 45 per cent of negroes hnd relatively
a much smaller number of cases, 7.5 per cent, than
thoso of the Scandinavians, 12.8 per cent, those of
the Germans and of Scandinavians, 11.8 per cent,
or of those of the Germans and Austrlans, 12.4
per cent. Consequently, tho states of the North
Central section nnd of tho Northwest bad a rela
tlvely high percentage of cases of this defect.
"Flat foot was noted only 77 per cent as fre
quently among the men from the rural districts as
among those from the urban.
"According to tho best Information available,
venerenl diseases were noted In 5.7 per cent of
tho selective service men who wero sent to tho
military camps. Flvo and eight-tenths per cent of
nil the diseases noted belonged to this class. The
relative- prevalence of this class of disease varied
from 10.4 per cent among the men from Florida
to 1.3 among thoso from Vermont.
"The third most frequent defect noted wns
hernln, tho result of Insufllclent muscular abdomin
al support, probably aggravated by excessively
heavy labor. Of each 100 men examined, four hud
an actual or potential hernia. Seven and one-tenth
per cent of nil tho defects noted wero of this char
acter. Tho relative number of cases was greatest
among tho men from Oregon, 11.8 per cent, and
lenst among thoso from Kentucky, 2.2 per cent.
"The refractive errors of tho eye stood fourth In
numerical frequency. Of each 100 men, 3.3 had de
fective vision, duo to some chnractor of refractive
error. Of all the defects noted 5.0 per cent be
longed to this class.
"Two and one-bnlf per cent of nil of Class 1 men
were rejected as unfit for military service on ac
count of tuberculosis, or of suspected tuberculosis.
Expressed In nbsolute numbers, 01,000 men out of
3,701,000 wero unfit for military servlco as the
result of this disease. It was relatively most fre
quent among tho men from certnln of tho states
of tho West and Southwest to which cither they
or Wielr ancestors had migrated on account of It.
Tho percentage of cases was greatest among thoso
from Arizona, 0.7 per cent, nnd lenst among thoso
from Wyoming, 1.2 per cent. Arizona was followed
by New Mexico, Colorado, California and then
"A greater number of enses wore reported among
tho men from the cities, 2.4 per cent, than among
those from rural districts, 1.8 per cent. Tho rela
tive number of men rejected for this cnuso from
tho four largo cities was greatest among thoso
from Philadelphia, 2.4 per cent, followed by New
York, 2.3 per cent. Chicago, 2.2 per cent, and Bos
ton, 2.1 per cent.
"Ono and flvc-terfths per cent of nil of tho men
examined were rejected on account of mental ab-
normalities. The maximum of cases wus reported
among tho men from Vermont, 3.8 per cent, nnd
tho minimum among those from Nevada, 3 per cent.
Among the population groups, the highest percent
age was among tho mouutuln whites, 3 per cent,
nnd tho least among the Mexicans. 1.1 per cent.
"Tho llndlngs show that the health of the popu
lation of tho various sections of our country la
very materially Influenced by n number of fnctorB,
ono of tho most Important of which Is the char
acter of the population, both foreign nnd nntlvo
born. Environment Is nlso of great Importance,
such as surrounds people In densely populnted In
dustrial centers, or In sparsely settled districts ; In
a healthy plateau section, or In a semi-tropical one
with a constant exposure to the possibility of con
tracting chronic malarial and hookworm Infections.
"Occupation also plays an Important part; mill
work In the South, and lumber work In the North
together with employment on the railroads cause
thu loss of extremities; agriculture Is associated
with good eyes and straight limbs, and In the
South, but less In tho North, with freedom from
Hat foot and distorted toes; standing In shops and
walking on pavements In Improperly fitted and
Improperly shaped shoes, together with the moro
constant use of the shoes In early life, accounts
for many of the cases of Imperfect fret 'In the city
population ; and much school work and much cleri
cal work tends to produce myopia In those so dis
posed. In early life bad posture at school, especial
ly among undernourished and rickety children ac
counts for much of the curvature of the spine, and
this Is especially true In cities with their large
percentage of foreign population."
