"A National Peril" An address to men of more thlan usual instruction was given in St. Jude's Church of England, Alphington, on Sunday evening, when Staff-sergt. the Rev. G. Cox, A.Mi.C., who has had con siderable experience in camps, had a commonsense talk with the men on the evils ofthe red plague, which he des cribed as a national peril. It causes children to be stillborn, while some are deaf and blinid from birth,-and it causes sterility and insanity amongst men. It is not the questionable kind of females who cause the spread of the disease, but the so-called square girls are responsible for 80 per cent of it. Iti the United Kingdom there are 15,000 deaths a year from it, and 92,000 men of the British army are out of action over it. Oil the motion of Mr Forster and Rev Hodge a vote of thanks was passed to the speaker. In:ouir adveitising column Mr W. A.
