DISKASKS OP THE MOUTH
This is a varity of catarrhal stom.
atitls characterized by the eruption
(breaking out) of one or more vesi-
cles (bumps) upon the edges of the
tongue the cheek or lip which rap-
idly passes into scores that are
slightly raised and surrounded by
yellowish-white bases with narrow
red borders. This disease is most
common with children between the
aires of 2 and 6 years but it is also
some time seen in adults. It is
usually seen in the Spring and Aut.
umn but may occur at any season.
It has many causes among which
are malnutrition tuberculosis teeth.
hlng preslstent and stubborn gas.
trie enteric disorders anemia and a
few others. The exciting causes are
supposed to be certain bacterial or
toxic substances though no special
parasite has yet been isolated.
The herpetic vlslcles (bumps)
soon rupture leaving the ulcers
(sores) as described before. Some.
times they are single or there may
be as many as 20 in number in
sizes varying from pin head to peas
size inside the lips and along the
tongues edge. Sometimes Inside the
cheek near the edges of the back
teeth the ulcers are so sore that al.
most any motion of the affected parts
cause sharp burning pain which of
course make eating difficult. There
Is an increase flow of secretion of
the mouth the breath is affected
but not always offensive. There may
be a slight fever coated tongue
constipation or diarrhea an irrltab.
illty loss of appetite tpgether with
the symptoms of any other disease
that may be had at that time.
The average duration of the dis
ease is from four to seven days but
in Ulnouri8hed and poorly cared for
cases the appearance of successive
crops of the ulcers (sores) will pro.
long the distress. In some cases
the affection is apt to recur. Re.
'apes are hlso frequent in those
having weak digestive and Imper-
fect assimulatlve functions. This dis-
ease is usually the result of neglL.
gence. lack of proper care for the
mouth and teeth which lead to de-
composition of accumilated bits of
food and mucus. Of course many
cases a'e due to direct Infection
sometimes through infected fingers
handkerchiefs unsanitary food or
drinks: food that is too hot or too
cold or food that Is too highly seas
oned with salt or pepper wlli even-
tually cause the disease.
The proper attention ' to the hy.
glence surroundings kitchen and the
rest of the house the exclusion of
ftis by screening are some of the
first steps to be taken In avoiding
or curing the disease. Personal hv.
glene especially in reference to the
mouth tepth and hands also plav
a great part. The hands should
plways be washed bfore the hand
ling preparing or eating of food
this holds true especially where
there are ulcers sores or eruptions
or any other unclonn or unhealthy
disease present. The mouth and
teeth should be washed after eaeh
meal special care being exercised
to see that the teeth are cleansed
of bread and other particles of
food that may hang or stick on or
between the teeth. Never eat food
that has been allowed to stand un.
covered exposed to flies. Don't use
salt pepper or other hot condiments

Hampton. Va. June 16. "Not one
person In ten thousand people of the
Pnlted States realizes what It means
to be a member of a military estab-
lishment. That is the reason why
the military establishment of the
1'nited States has never been recog-
nized ns it should be; the people do
not understand. Being In the mili-
tary service you have a terrible re-
sponsibility an until everyone In the
service and out of it realizes the ter-
rible responsibility of a man in the
military establishment in time of
war. they cannot appreciate what that
establishment means." Col. Richmond
P. Davis. V. S. A. rommandant of
Fort Monroe made these statements
in his recent address to the Hampton
Institute battalion of cadets which Is
now a Reserve Officers' Training
Corps unit at the close of the an-
nual competitive drill which was won

Value of II. O. T. C.
"I congratulate the entire batta
Ion. said Colonel Davis "on a most
excellent performance and a perfor
nance which Is a credit to yourselves
I and your Institution but I especially
congratulate the authorities and the
battalion because today you are
member of the R. O. T. C.
"For many years you have had a
naicanon nut mat battalion simply
stood for this (Treat Institution which
has done for many years such a won-"
aerrui worK ror you and your people;
but today lt is different The bat-
talion Is on an entirely different sta-
tus. You are now a member of the
military establishment on one of the
greatest countries of the world.
"As soon as you have become mem-
bers of the military establishment
you have dedicated your lives if call-
ed on to the service of your Gov-
ernment find therefore you represent
not only soldiers and not only civilian;
but the most patriotic citizens of the
country. This is the reason why it
is so splendid to have these Reserve
Officers' Training Corps units estab-
lished all over this great land.
"What are some of the things that
you should do to fit yourselves for
this work? One of them is this: be
loyal to your outfit be loyal to your-
self. Everyone knows what loyalty
Is and if. In time of peace when ytu
are preparing for war tho great
crisis which may come. you have
n..t inculcated in your soul that prin-
ciple of loyalty never will you be a
soldier. In your dealing with mem-
bers of your command Just as in your
dealing with each other in your com-
munity you should take to heart and
attempt to cultivato In yourself the
principles of courtesy. Courtesy Is the
foundation of the military establish-
ment lust as it is the foundation of
the civil establishment. It is desirable
In the civil establishment but It is
an absolute necessity if you are go-
ing to be a soldier.
"Another thing: never question or-
ders. Obey them promptly and obey
them cheerfully. That is one of the
first principles of a sollder's life. A
real soldier never questions the orders
of his superiors but when he is told
to do something he goes at it with
life and snap to accomplish lt to the
best of his ability. If any of you ever
fall in command exercise your com-
mands with firmness and justice. If
there Is any one thing that human na-
ture will respond to it is fairmness
and Justice. Remember that IC the
man over you is just. It matters not
how hord he is you will respect him.
you will love him and you will try
to do his bidding"

"The Gaboon area" said Mlgeod "Is
becoming a vast graveyard for the
dying races of Central Africa. For
some time the sands of Sahara have
been advancing southward and there
has been a steady trek of native tribes
south and west into French territory.
There they are held up by more vig-
orous coastal races and settle down

"It Is the most amazing case of ra-
cial suicide that the world ever saw.
I passed among tribes where the wom-

another generation if the present
ideas prevail they will die out."'
