Oakum Need Acute Word is re

oakum has become so great that physi

when placed upon the wounds ft pre
vents gangrene and lockjaw.
"For this reason we are speeding up
on our supply of oakum pads, which is

BEE'S MILK AND ICE
FUND HELPS MANY
Another Family Found in Dis
tressing Circumstances is
Given Much Needed
By A. R CROH.
, Mrs. A lives somewhere in j
Omaha, in a basement under a tailor !
shop. 1 opened a gate and stepped j
from the sidewalk down steep steps i
and came to the kitchen door. No one
responded to my knock, though the
door stood open.
Inside I could see a wash boiler
standing on the stove. A coffee pot
was on the floor, a wash basin on a j
chair. On the table were some un
washed dishes and an empty milk bot-'
tie. One other chair and a wash stand
completed the furniture of the room. ;
On a line extending across the room
was a child's garment, drying. The
plaster was knocked off the wall in
I walked around to the front ot j
the housev The trout door opens on
a narrow passage lighted only by an
iron grating in the sidewalk. 1 looked
into the front room. There was no
carpet. The only furniture consisted
of two beds. And there, lying on the
bare matress of one of the beds, was
a tiny baby, asleep. Now and then it
would raise its little hands, uncon
sciously, to chase away the flies that
walked across its face and body.
Is One Case of Many.
This, dear reader, is one of the
cases being helped by The Bee's Free
Milk and Ice fund. I had secured a
number of names from the visiting
nurses and was investigating.
That little baby is dependent for its
very life upon this fund. And the
fund is in urgent need of money to
help this and dozens of other babies
whose only fault is that they have
been born in poviity.
I investigated the case further. Go
ing up the steep steps again and out
of the gate, I breathed the fresher air
of the sidewalk. I asked the tailor in
the shop upstairs where Mrs. A
was. He said she was scrubbing out
the neiehborine moving picture house.
There I found this brave mother of
five, down on her knees, scrubbing
the floor. Once a week she makes
$1.00 at this work. She is of foreign
birth, but sneaks English fairly. She
made no voluble complaint of her pov
erty, but just answered questions, bne
expressed heartfelt thanks for the
quart of milk and piece of ice that

said. "Mv little baby, three months,

most stubborn and painful hard corns,
soft corns, corns between the toes,

and lift out easily with the fingers,

Ice-Mint costs little, is easy and
delightful to apply, and aside from

and comfortable even on the hottest
days. Try it. There is nothing better.
