To these e.xcellent .suggestions is appended the advice of Dr. Weizmi!- ler of the West «ide Y. .M. C. A. oi Wew York,
"Wben seized with cramp, swii;i without using the crampy limb, and, while swimming, alternately draw up amd stretch out the limb as lar as pos- bible, thus helping nature to ovr-r come the condition.

"Scarcely a long-distance swimmir.!.; race ia held that some competitors are not attacked wilh cramp.

THE AMERICAN FLAG
When Freedom, from her mountain height,
I'nfurled her standard to the air.
She tore the azure robe of night.
And set the stars of glory there!
She mingled with ils gorgeous dyes
The milky baldric, of the skies,
And striped ils pure, celestial white
W'th slreakings of lhc morning light.
Then, from his mansion irt the sun.
.She called her eagle-bearer down.
And gave inlo his mighty hand
The symbol of her chosen land!
.Majestic monarch of the cloud!
Who near'st afl they regal form.
To hear the tempest trumpings laud.
And see tlie lightning lances driven
When strive the wariiois of the storm..
And rolls the thunder drum of heaven,—
Cliilde of the Sun! to thee 'lis given
. To guard the banner of the free,
To hover in the sulphur smoke.
To ward away the battle stroke.
And bid ils blendings shine afar.
Like rainbows on the cloud of war,
Tiie iiarpingers of victory!
Flag of the brave! thy folds shall liy. 'J'he sign of hope and triumph brikht. When speaks the signal trumpet tone. And the long line comes gleaming on, Kve yet the life-blood, v>arm and wet, llas'dfmmed tho glistening bayonet, F^ach soldier's eye shall brightly turn To where thy sky born glories burn. Ami. as his springing steps advance. Cal cil war aud vengeance from the glance. And when the cannon uiouthings loud
Heme in wild wreallis the battle shroud. And gory .sabers rise and tall
Like shoots of flame on midnights pall, Then shall thy meleoi- glances glow.
And cowerings foes shall shrink beneatli
Each gallant arm that strikes below
That lovely messenger of death.
Hag of the seas! on ocean wave Tiiy stars shiill glitter o'er tlie brave! VVhen death careening on the gale, Sweeps darkly round the bellied sail. And frighted waves rush wildly bai k liefore the broadside's reeling rack, Kach dying wanderer of the sea Shall look al once ro heaven and thee. And smile tao see thy sjilendors Ily
Ini iriumiih o'er his closing eye.
Flag of the free heat's hope and home,
15y angel hands lo valor given,
Thy stars have lit the welkin iiome.
And all Ihy hues were born ih heaven.
Forever float that standard sheet!
Whore breathes tlie foe but laTN-before us.
Wilh Freedom's soil beneath our feet, -And. Freedom's banner streaming o'er us?

BATTLE HYMN O THE REPUBLIC. i
.Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the/'ljOrd:
Me is traiiipling out the vintage where the giapes of wiath are stored;
lie luiUi loosed the fateful lightning of his ferribh' swift sword
His truth is marcliin.g on.
I lia\(' seen hlin in the watch-fires of a luindred circling camps:
Tliey I'iive builded him an altar in the evening dews and damps;
1 can If ad his righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps
His day is marching on.
1 ha\e read a lirey gospel, writ in burnished rows of steel;
"As ye deal with my contemners, so with you my grace shall deal;
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel.
Since ("rod is marching on."
He lia.s sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;
lie Is sifting out the hearts of men before his-jtidgment seat;
O, be swift, my soul, to answer him! be jubilant my feet!
Our God is marching on.
In tln> beauty of tho lillies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in his bosom that transfigures you and me.
As he died to make iften holy, let us die to make men free.
While (lod is marching on.

< Fling to the breeze the flag of purity.
Our standard, The Red, W'hile., and Dlue,
The soul of our naiion, the hope of creation.
The flag of the brave and true.
It tells of progress, and victories won,
As It leads the world in its course;
It speaks ils message of etiuality,
A missive of love and not force.
(^ur love ever turns to this flag of ours.
That we love with veneration.
For the lessons taught, and the battle fought,
Its tbie anchor of our nation.
And we point with pride to the Stars and Stripes, To the flag that knows no defeat. And we'll see it there, with its halyards taunt '
When we all make our last retreat ,c
GREATER DEATHS FROM
Medical Falsehoods Denying Deaths from Vaccination and
Lockjaw Ans'wered and Crushed
There are two great facts that have already been proved in our previous articles t.iat may be re-stated here: -Firtt: That general vaccinRtioo ie more dangerous to public health and human life than natural smallpox, pa; ticularly la children Second: Tbat these fact* ar* adml|ti«d and disclosod in Ergllsb statistics.but are denied and concealed in our own statistics.
These two unerring shots have gone right home to the vital centre of this great modern medical barbarism of compulsory disease and death and have undoubtedly given aH compulsory vaccinaiion in this State Its death wcund from which it will never ultimately recover in this .Mate or ihroughou: this Nation, wherever this medical evil still exists, as soon as these two great and shocking lactt, sink fully into the public mind.
It wa3 naiuial, therefore, that the medical doctors and the medical paiiors, who have been practising and defending this barbarism, and profllln-x from it directly or indirectly for years pa.st, should squirm in more or less agony under this death wound lo their favorite and prohiable barbarism o* compulsory vaccination forced on the whole people In one way or another a', every e.Ncuse or opportunity of alleged smallpox menace or panic; and sev- eral of them evidently thought that they could meet these solid facts with false and foul personal epithets and false and absurd denials and evasions, mo»: of which I have already answered and disposed of.
And I notethat of late, therefore, all tbe.se former champions of tills medical tarbarifm among our medical doctors and ilfttdical editors have be?n very silent except one recent would-be champion, who in an evening paper oi Sew York City of May :;:! ailempled lo attack nie and my fads as to deatha from vaccinaiion in this State througii lockjaw in vaccination wounds and In so doing has hlmtelf given us a very characteristic exhibition of the way iu which vaccinating doctors attein])t to deny and conceal the real truth on lhl.s suhject from the isiblic. And I now regard this particular subjeit as so im¬ portant for public .Tilightenment and the moment so opportune for the cru.shing of a n;oHt daiigeious and dastardly medical falsehood that I now dlgreaj in my intended choice of subjects for my closing or final articles and contire myself h.ie to lliis particular deaths from lockjaw or tetanus in vaccination wounds, whith is one of the most fretinenl causes of deaths from vaccinaiion in this Siatt. and will illustrate fuli3)the frequent fatality of vaccination and the crafty, absurd and shameful manner in \\hlch our vaccinators in charge of our deaili ccriiliirtes and our vital statistics try lo excuse, conceal and deny these deaths ana the full responsibility of vaccination for the same.
If wee now turn to the report of the Registrar General of England f^j. ^ju (n,,. la.^i in print) we will find an honest, simple and straiglilforwaid
iiccord of deaths from vaccination, both directly and indirectly, very differej^l f,on, ,iie ..-imiiieiul, crafty and apologetic way shown in our annual reports, which first practically admit a tact and then try to deny and conceal it by tiji..^ jopl,, j,nd fi'Ise conclusions. However, we will llnd no deaihs, reporte-i from loc.-jaw in vaccination woimds lu this English report on account of the djfij,,.„n.,. ,„ i,„.i,l m.iditlon ainne noted, but wo will (ind several vaccinatio.i
idealhs rei orted from other toniniou wound infections, such as septicemia, ery-^jp^'las. < tc. v, lii< I, also exist here in addilion lo our peculiar and very com
mon and latal infection of lockjaw. Thus iu the English report for 11)11 tlii^ most fit;mluaiii compaiaiive daia is given as to deaths froi-i .Miiallpox an.l
vac (ination for that year: —
Total deains from ciiiallpox for all ages
Deaths fiom smallpox under five years
Tolal deaths from vaccination, all ages
Specific Disease or Causes of Death in Said Fourtt.en Fatal Vaccinations: —
P'rom "Vaccinti' or "t.'owpox" directly
Fiom vaccination lesulling in fatal septicemia
J-'rom vaccination rt suiting in fatal evysipelas
Here v.e will see from the latest published annual record of the higlK.-.si staiisiical auUionty in the \','ales, in a population of about thirty-six millions the tolal deaths from vacc jnaiion were fourteen, oi- iiioi ]ivliich wero tweniythree! On the otber hand, the deaths from smallpox in li ^He t liihlren wen- only .^ix, an by "vaccinia," or cowpox pure and simple, in children of the same age, wherj.;,s iht.' adiliiional f.e.nhs from ' from septicemia and erysipelas, added eight more fatalitis, ilius making the d,.atli.-. uom vai ( i-iaiien in liiili from smallpox!
To show that deaths from vaccination in this year of 1911 in Engldiui, a- conii deatha occur more oi less constantly every year, aud that the total yearly cK-ailis iroin particulaily in children, I cau give this furiher impressive data from the reports of 'lie
'!"') I al Dodllis tiom
1907 • ' 10 .
J9G8 * 1?
Total deaths from smlkpoi for six years, 1905 lo 1910
Total deaths from accinaiion for six years, VJOi> to 1910
Deaths from smallpox in said period under flve years old
lutaths from vaccination iu said period under five years old
This a.vful lecord of fatal vaccinations thus speaks very clearly for 'I self and toims aii ali.-olni syttcm of compulsory vaccination, particularly for litlle children, and needs no liiitln r ioiuiim iii lieie.
Uriefly staud, therefore, Commissioner Poller's whole argument in 'lie siate niiort loi- 1\I12 is tliih
erkl that for llie \ ear 1 iioiliing uniifual. and tliat sni Jnaiicn fre-;:ga'ly bald and naked of the real in
himself and the public lliat these deaths were
Tiiat wliiie, ill Conmiissioiier Forlei's ow'i ally consequent lo ^ accinat ion! mil, liy whicii lie tries to fool not also consequent to vact ini lion! .And does lie and his defender tiy to show thai these four teirible deaths from lockja-\\, or tetanus, in the suppurating va(t:inatlon sore wore "sequent' to \ ai( laiiion but wcie not consequent to it'.' Simply by Hie medical ^nd logical'humbug, as expressed in Commissioner I'oriei's own words here ijuoied, ihat none of iliese cases of lockjaw "were found to have developed less than three weeks after the vaccination, and In all cases the identical vaccine virus used was at the aame time used on other subjects. Not everything ¦which follows vaccination is due to it, and ii is not probable that these were c!\ue to it."
Now, I say that such evasion of the obvious Iruili and deception of iJio pulilic mind, a; here slioun in our Ly tills and other Ooclors, shows that men incompetent by professional intere.ef in vaccinaiion i«j have an> charge ing deallis fro:u vaccination or oilier medical oi»eralions should be entjioly dj^.'-placed by a v.iioliv dilTin oirr health detiariiiifnts and in cliarge of our vital statlsiic!5, and I will have sci;ieiliiii-; v(r> .-ircjn;; and aricle.
What a ijjocking insult (his is to men of ordinary honesty and inlelli.-;enee can be 'lali/.ed vvheiiwt; sa) lliat jf ll ed in thc virus ilpeif at the time of vaccination we would simi»ly have thousards and tens of thousands of deallis from vac we have dozens and hundreds!
Aud I have here lo ask these medical defendc-rs If dozens or hundreds of d-iiiLs liimi ilii.- )from smallpox, particularly in little school children (which can easily be proved), are not suilii ieiii lo call a luilt on this barbailsm of compulsory vaccina¬ tion in our public schools and institutions and the persistent and shocking den ial and cone I'al'iH 111 oi iis fatal offecis in our vital siaiistics and yearly if ports!
It is therefore evident tl/at the attempt to excuse the operations of vacc iualion ficeu ull i. .-['onsibillly betautm tliv iiilwiticjn wa»i ool in llie t the moment of vaccination is simply a dastardly evasion and falsilication of iii'edical ti alb and ntsj.oneiliilliy which «liould of wvsry man of any common honesty and common sense.
It is, of course, well known that the lockjaw infection lias bc^eii freci.nenHy loi Ihis was mote common years ago than it is today because this danger v\as f lund lo In-
