Fear of Losing Servants Pre

rates which has just been put into
effect has brought to light the fact
that employers, made timid by the
shortage of domestic workers, are
tolerating thefts from their ward
robes and wine cellars in order to
retain the few servants they have
"in captivity." Officials of indemnity
companies, who give this explana
tion, declare that in many cases em
ployers have refused to allow the
servants in their households to be
questioned about thefts, through
fear that they will quit if annoyed.
Emboldened by-this situation, dis
honest servants are reported to be
helping themselves to their employ

and jewelry. . "
"Servants are privileged charac
ters in the homes of the wealthy
throughout New York," said the
head of one surety company. "In
many cases holders of burglary in
surance have canceled their claims
against the company rather than to
prosecute a guilty servant, knowing
that this would mean the loss of nis
or her services."

refused to allow his servants to be

died at the home of his parents, Mr.
and Mrs. Jessie Heifer, from spinal
meningitis. The disease is thought
to have been caused by an injury
received while playing basket ball.
The After Effects
This is No. 2 of a series of advertisements, prepared by a com
petent physician, explaining how certain diseases which attack
the air passages such as Pneumonia, Influenza, Whooping
Cough, Measles or even a long continued Cold often' leave
these organs in an inflamed, congested state,' thus affording a
favorable foothold for invading germs And how Vick's Vapo-
Rub may be of value ia, this condition.
Pneumonia attacks the air cells
t the lungs. An inflammation
is set up and matter is thrown
off which causes the air cells to
solidify, thus preventing the
natural flow of blood thru the
lungs. This "backing up" of
the blood causes the heart to
pump harder, just -as stepping on
a hose increases the water pres
sure, which is the reason why,
during this disease, the physician
watches the overburdened heart
After recovery the lungs are
filled with a mass of wreckage
the debris of the battle which
must be gotten rid of by a process
known as resolution . Frequently ,
inflamed spots remain,.congestion
persists, cough hangs on, and the
least exposure brings pn a cold
that is hard to get rid of. ; If
neglected, such damaged air pas
usages may easily develop serious
disease of the lungs. .
Such cases should always con
tinue tinder a physician's care
and frequent examinations should
be made t see that nature is
properly continuing the iebuild
Nightly applications of Vick's
VapoRub will aid nature in this
work.- Because Vicks acts locally
by stimulation thru the skin to
draw out the inflammation, at
tract the blood away from the
congested spots and relieve the
cough. In addition, the medici
nal ingredients of Vicks are
vaporized by the body heat.
These vapors are breathed in all
night long, thus bringing the
medication to bear directly upon
the inflamed areas.
Vicks should be rubbed in
over the throat and chest until
the skin is red then spread on
thickly and covered with hot
flannel cloths. Leave the cloth
ing loose around the neck and
the bed clothes arranged in the
form of a funnel so the vapors
arising may be freely inhaled. If
the cough is annoying, swallow a
small bit of Vicks the size of a pea.
Samples to new users will be
sent free on request to the Vick
