No Use to the World
WASHINGTON, Sept 28,-fen per cent
of the population of the United States
is permanentlydetective and is an eco
nomic and moral burden oh the other 90
pen, cent and should be eliminated from
society, asserted Bleecker Van Wagenen
of New Tork, in speaking today to the
Fifteenth International congress on
"Hygiene- and Demography." . Efforts
should be made to get rid by proper
methods of breeding the 'human trace, he
said, of the following nine classes:
Paupers, feeble minded, those of crimi
nal tendencies, epileptics, insane,, except
acute cases not hereditary, those consti
tutionally weak, those predisposed to
certain diseases and those having de
fective - sense organs. The method to be
adopted to bring, this about, he said,
was being studied scientifically.
A resolution, declaring that not only
the gratitude of this nation, but of the
world, was due to Dr. Prince A Morrow,
founder ot the American Federation for
Sen Hygiene, tor his work in the effort
to stamp out the white slave traffic, was
adopted by the congress today.
"Let the church get out of its com
fortable club-like rooms and out of its

Having a little business in one of the
federal offices of the city, after it was
finished I fell in conversation with the
official in charge concerning Peruns, I
mention his business to show that the
conversation was conducted with a man
of more than ordinary Intelligence, be
ing a employe of the government who
had passed through several civil service
examinations. . He said to me, not know
ing who X was:
, "I think a great deal ot this patent
medicine business ought to be stopped.
Especially such remedies aa Peruna.
Peruna, as you know, is a stimulant and
contains eighteen or twenty per cent of
alcohol. People take it without knowing
what It la, and such remedies ought to be
prohibited by law. My own mother took
Peruna one. She had a cough, night
sweats, was growing emaciated and
weak, Several doctors examined her. The
opinion was expressed several times that
she was going Into consumption. One
thought it was chronic bronchitis. At any
rate, her condition was quit serious. She
was unable to get anV relief from the
doctors she consulted, although she took
their medicine faithfully tor nearly a
year. Some one told her about Peruna,
and against my wish and against the
wishes of our family, ah began taking
It At once she Improved, and in leas
than six months she apparently waa well.
We did all we oocM to discourage her in
taking Pernna, but ah persisted. It fin
ally came out In magazine that Peruna
contained alcohol. Then we knew at once
what it was that benefited my mother,
it wa simply the alcohol that Peruna
oentalned. We bad the laugh on mother.
We bare rrrt ecauaad to make ton of her

by our teasing her, but is very stubborn.
She says that if she were to be sick In
the same way again she would certainly
get Peruna and take It alcohol or no
alcohol So you see if people wilt persist
in such foolishness there ought to be a
law to prevent them."
I ventured to ' interpose a question.
"Tou say the doctors could not cure her,
and yet you say Peruna did cur her.
What .difference does It make to you
whether It was alcohol or some other
drug that effected the cure?"
"Well, I don't know' that it makes, any
difference, but it is deceiving the people
to give them alcohol even though it does
cur them," he said.
, I replied. "Why, I cannot ' exactly

I was also constipated. I consulted sev

"Tee, I suppose so."
"Five per cent would be one-twentiethi
As each pint contains sixteen ounces you
were then taking a little less than an
ounce of alcohol before each meal."
"But you. objected to your mother's
taking alcohol In the Peruna, and yet she
was taking far less alcohol than you
ware. As I understand it, the dose of .
Peruna is one tabieepoonfui. Supposing
It to be twenty per cent alcohol, there
would be In each dose one-fifth of a table
spoonful of alcohol, which would be about
half a teaspoonful, while you were tak
ing at least four teaspoonfuls of alcohol
In your bottle of beer. And yet you ob
jected to your mother's taking Peruna
on the ground that the Pernna contains '
alcohol. In my opinion it was the alco
hol that cured both of you. Tour mother
evidently was cured of a very serious ail
ment Peruna contains alcohol. ' It was
undoubtedly the alcohol that cured her,
or at least helped to. The other ingred
ients of Peruna might have assisted, no
doubt did. In your case it wa the aloo- -hoi
in th beer that cured you of the
stomach difficulty. Peruna has cured
thousands ot such cases."
"Well, I declare," he replied, "I never
thought of it in that way before. There
has been so much said about alcohol be
ing poisonous that I suppose my mind
has been prejudiced against it . But It
as you say there Is also alcohol in beer,
the same kind of alcohol as is used In
Peruna, I cannot see where the differ
ence is myself."
"Well," I replied, "you have been do
ing exactly what the average man and
woman is doing. Tou have allowed your
mind to become prejudiced against Pe
runa on account of its containing alco
hol. Without stopping to look into the
matter at all you hav assumed that
there Is something terribly disreputable
about remedies containing alcohol. .The
fact Is, however, that most all fluid med
icines, whether prescribed by a doctor
or put up a a patent medicine, contain
a certain amount of alcohol. It was
alcohol that cured your mother. It was
aloo hoi that cured you. In my opinion,
alcohol in some form or other la making
more cure than all other drug com
bined. This Is not saying, however, that
Peruna contains only alcohol, for it does
contain excellent remedies besides alco
hol. But X do contend that the alcohol
in Peruna Is not only not harmful to
those who take It but If taken in the
doses prescribed on the bottle It will do
a great deal of good and there ts not
