Statement Showing How the Proceeds
of Sale of Red Cross Seals
Are to Be Spent
For the benefit of the numerous or-
ganizations who helped to sell near-
ly forty-five million Red Cross seals
last year and for the general public,
the American Red Cross and the Na-
tional Association for the Study and
Prevention of , Tuberculosis have
framed a definition of anti-tuberculo-
sis work showing how the proceeds
from these holiday stickers are to ho-
used. The definition limits the expen-
diture of money only for the year
ending April 30, 1915.
The definition was framed at a re-
cent meeting of the National Associa-
tion for the Study and Prevention of
Tuberculosis ‘and states that the term
“anti-tuberculosis work” as it relates
to the expenditure of Red Cross seal
money shall include the following ac-
1. The construction of hospitals or
sanatoria for the care of the tubercu-
2. The maintenance of the tubercu-
3. The provision of day or night
camps for the tuberculous; the provi-
sion pud maintenance of dispensaries,
visiting nurses, open air schools, fresh
air classes, or preventoria for the card
or treatment of tuberculosis cases oj
for the prevention of the spread of tu-
4. The maintenance of educational
or legislative activities which have for
their object the prevention of infection

The Bridal Trousseau.
The old idea of providing brides
with a score or more of gowns, wraps
and hats has quite gone by. Even the
fashionable trousseau of today con-
tains no more than a dozen gowns, if
as many. Styles change so fast that
by fall the gowns for the June wed-
ding, necessari# made some weeks be-
fore the ceremony, begin to look odd.
Some authority has declared that the

more than three new toilets each year,

she is altering her last year’s supply

Adequate hospital facilities for the

results most gratifying. The extended use of Castoria is‘Unquestionably the
result of three facts; /»*#—The indisputable evidence that it is harmless;
Second—That it not only allays stomach pains and quiets the nerves, but assimi-
lates the food; Third—It is an agreeable and perfect snhstitate for Castor Oil*
It is absolutely safe. It does not contain any Opium, Morphine, or other narcotio
and does not stupefy. It is unlike Soothing Syrups, Bateman’s pfcps, Godfrey’s
Cordial, etc. This is a good deal for a Medical Journal to say. Our duty, how-
ever, is to expose danger and record the meads of advaaoing The day

Letters from Prominent Physicians
HHHgMggggjgM ■ addressed to Chas. H. Fletcher. H
Dr. B. Halstead Scott, of Chicago, Ilia., says: "l bath prescribed you*
Castoria often for Infants during my practice, and find It vary aattafactofy.*
Dr. William Belmont, of Cleveland, Ohio, says: -Year Castoria stands
first In its class. In my thirty years of practice I dux say I never have
found anything that so filled the place.**
Dr. J. H. Taft, of Brooklyn, N. Y., says: *1 have used year Castoria sat
found it an excellent remedy in my household and private practice for
’ many years. The formula is excellent” .
Dr. ft J. Hamlen, of Detroit, Mich., says: *1 prescribe your Castoria
extensively, as I have never found anything to eqaal it for children*,
troubles. I am aware that there are imitations in the field,, hut I alwaya
.see that my patients get Fletcher’s.”
Dr. Wm. J McCrann, of Omaha, Neb., says: **As the father of thirteen
children I certainly know something about your great medicine, and aside
from my own family experience I have in my years of practice found Cas-
tor ia a popular and efficient remedy in almost everyhome.”
Dr. J. R. Clausen, of Philadelphia, Pa., says: “Hie name that your Cas-
toria has made for itself in the tens of thousands off homes blessed by the
presence of children, scarcely needs to be supplemented by the endorse-
ment of the medical profession, but I, for one, most heartily endorse It and
believe it an excellent remedy-" ■ *
Dr. R. M. Ward, of Kansas City, Mo., says: “Physicians generally do not
prescribe proprietary preparations, but in the case of Castoria my experi-
ence, like that of many other physicians, has taught me to make an ex-
ception. I prescribe yonr Castoria In my practice because I have found It
to be a thoroughly reliable remedy for children’s complaints. Any physi-
cian who has raised a family, as t have, will join me in heartiest recom-
mendation of Castorjs.” '

Inventor of the Airbrake.
Who really invented the airbrake?
Certainly the automatic airbrake, the
one that has proved practicable and of
permanent valua in modern railroad-
ing, was the product of the late George
Westinghouse’s ingenuity, His patent
for the automatic brake i&as taken out
in 1872, superseding the non-automatic
or “straight” Westinghouse airbrake
patented in 1869, and later the West-
inghouse vacuum brake was Invented.
But, as in the case of most other in-
ventions, there are several claimants
for, originality in this field. Thus,
lime. M. Drouane, daugheer of M.
Debruges of Paris, claims the distinc-
tion of priority for her father. The
New York Times has a letter from
State Senator William P. Fiero of
White Plains containing a patent office
declaration by his .grandfather, Henry
Miller, of a “new and useful improve-
ment in the application of steam and
compressed air to the purpose of op-
erating railroad brakes,” recorded Jan-
uary 2, 1855. Mr. Miller was doubt-
less a pioneer la the progress of air-
The emperor of Austria, it has been
noted, lays claim to the title marquis
of Antwerp. If all European sov-
ereigns could make good their minor
territorial titles there would, indeed,
be a reconstruction of the map. The
king of Italy, for instance, is officially
styled king of Sardinia, France, Spain
and England, of Italy and Jerusalem,
of Greece and Alexandria, of Hamburg
and Sicily, Master of the Deep, King of
the Earth. The king of Spain also
claims to be king of Jerusalem, king
of Galicia (a title shared with the em-
peror of Austria), and, in addition,
king of Gibraltar, of the West Indies
and of India.
