Ii)14 NO. 3 HEALTH'S BEST WAY, EAT APPLES EVERY DAY Toetday, October 20th, ii Dedicated as National Apple Day THE GREATEST DAY OF THE YEAR The Day ii Celebrated by Eating at Least One Apple—There are 197 Dif¬ ferent Ways tl Eat an Apple The Hig l)ay Is coniing, Tuesday. October'20111, is the Tenth Anniver¬ sary of National Apple Day, founded by James Ilandly of Quincy, 111., and ratltied and endorsed by governors, consumer.s. horticultural societies and trade luKlies from ix-ean to ocean. King .\pple ascended the tlirwne on National .\pple Day and all who wisli may do him honor. Th'e day is celebrated by eating al lea.st one apple. There are lit" ways to eat an apple. How many do you know? Ilein/. with his 57 varieties is not in It Willi the apple. It can be u.sed in more ways than oilier fruit, keeps better under all coniitions. never grows weary to the taste and Is the orlgiiuil source of health and ha))- pine.ss. It is a day to be dedicated to the apple pie and the apple dumpling. The crop this year is abundant, of good quality and reasonable in price. Apples will be within the reach of every man, woman and child in the I'nited States and Canada. The "high cost of living" problem can l)c easily solved. II is a medicine, a food and a never ending deliglil, all In one, and appealing to the youngest and the oldest. "An apple a day keeps the doclor away,'' and "Health's best way, eat apples every day," are founded upon the fad and not on superstition. Dr. Edward R. C'ampbell, of Hellows Fall, Vt., writing on tliis subject recently, said: "Tlie manifold blessings of the ap¬ ple have teen often set forth. It Is good for the physical man in many ways. It is an aperient, keeping tlie Inlernal organs in good wurking order: It is a prophylactic or prevontor dis¬ ease, owing io the medicinal value of its juice: 11 is soothing in fever, a foil to headai^hes, a general regulator and dietic. Easily digestive itself, it aids In digesting other fiKids. Nobody ever got sick from eating ripe apples. Tliey cure, buttlieynevercau.se indigestion. An antidote to alcoholism, they have been proved a soverign remedy. A regular apple eater will never contract the liijUor habit. There Is a mutual aversion between the apple and .lohn Harleycorn. Tliey cannot live In the same house together, will not occupy the same bed, can't agree In the di¬ gestive organs. DrinK liiiuor and you hate apples. Eat apples and you hate liijuor. It follows therefore, that the cultivation of a taste for apples isa sure preventative of contracting the ll(|Uor liabit. It was left to the experts In charge of a Massachusetts asylum to discover tliat the apple can "minister to a dis¬ eased mind." Conseciuently they keep barrels of apples In all the wards, to which the patients have access. If tliey devour all that are raised on the Institution's farm, others are Ixjught andtlie unfortunate are never allowed to lack for the fruit. The physicians In charge say it acts like a charm. It sfjothes the nervous system of the un¬ happy victims of mental aterration and helps the mind by helping the Ixxly. A prominent Hoston newspaper says "It would Ije a tine thing for a dys¬ peptic liumanity if every day were apple day. Only the doctors would suffer. As to the variety of apples, it matters little. Some apples are tet¬ ter than others, but all apples are good. My own opinion as a practloneer of medicine and surgery for over a quar¬ ter of a century. Is that the use of less meat and much more fruit by our citizens would certainly result In less Illness and add much to length of life and happiness to the people. Also that modern medicine, surgery and apples are most potent agents in in¬ creasing longevity and reducing the high Cost of living, and that we ought to remember: Aliiili'. aiiplp. call for ajuili- KviTywhi-n' you nu: SiTuUiiiji- llu' Mil iif fan'.

They Have a Daughter Relatives in this city have received the announcement of the birth of a daughter to Mr. and Mrs. R. H. Chaney of Fayettevllle. Ark. Their many friends share their joy and will gladly welcome the little lass when she visits Klora with her parents and brothers. Mrs. Chaney was formerly Miss Clara Cunningham. A Letter From Oreton Baker. Ore. Sept. '.»!>, litI4. Southern Illinois Record: I'erhaps you will be Interested to hear something of this country. Baker Is liK-ated In a very fertile val ley. I have teen lold the valley is from 2.j to 75 miles in width, by l-'ji to 2i»» miles in length. Tliere Is lots of wheat, oats and alfalfa ral.sed. Nearly all the valley Is under Irrega- tlon, wliere the land Is irregaled. a crop is certain. They are sure of tlie grain, but .sometimes a hard wind will come and blow it down. In such a case a large bunch of hogs are bought and turned In to eat the fal¬ len grain, then sell the hogs wlilch are always a good price. The past live years dry farming lias been very prolitable here, as tlie rainfall has been greater than has ever been be¬ fore. I heard a gentleman make the re¬ mark, that the rain is coming west with the people. I think there must be sometliing in tlial. Irom the drouths there have teen in the east. All the dry land has been counted worthle.ss for anything except sheep- grazing until tiie past few years. Tttd years ago a young man came in here and homesleaded some land only tlve miles from Haker and this year sold *'2ti(Ki.tiO worth of grain. Hut their success depends altogether on tlie rain-fail. From tlie hill ju.st out of town (Haker is built in a semicircle around tlie foot of a hill) looking north It is a perfect sight lo see tlie large ricks of Alfalfa. The ricks contain eacii from 25 to KKI tons of the tinest of hay. This hay can te bought for •!
