Who is an Autopathist?

ANYONE who knows just what to do in sick-
ness and does it of his own accord is an
Autopathist, be he physician or patient. Sick-
ness has no terrors for autopathists. If they were
to get sick they know they could soon get well,

I coined the word, Autopathy, from the Greek
"Autos," meaning SELF, and "Pathos," mean-
ing DISEASE or TREATMENT. Autopathy is,
therefore, the scientific, or commonsense, treat-
ment of one's self. This knowledge is easily and
quickly acquired by anyone who is willing to de-
vote a little study to Autology and Autopathy
and to this volume.

Foreword: You will agree that had I
not volunteered my services to the Govern-
ment in the World War and during the dev-
astating epidemic of influenza and pneu-
monia I would have been unmindful of my
duty. I appeal to you as a patriotic citizen
to assert your rights with your Congress-
men, Senators and Boards of Health and
Education looking to the accomplishment
of the object proposed in the address to
President Wilson.

By perceiving the truths of Autology
you acquire the right to be classed with the
progressive thinking Americans.

I wish also to thank the thousands of
Autologists who have so earnestly upheld
me in spreading the Truth; and I may say
they include the foremost men and women
in all the professions and vocations.

Certain doctors have tried to boycott
me for carrying direct to the people the mes-
sage of Autologic Prevention and Cure of
Disease after it had been peremptorily de-
clined by the Chicago Medical Society, of
which I was a member in good standing.
Since then the fundamental truths of Autol-


ogy have been successfully demonstrated
by over a million of progressive, thinking
men and women in all the professions; also,
hundreds of doctors, including allopaths,
homeopaths, osteopaths, etc., have written
me that Autology has been their inspira-
tion and guide in their practice for the past
decade and a half. Owing to these facts I
have long felt that perhaps the American
Medical Association might now accord me
a professional hearing with a fair measure
of recognition for such truths as Autology
has admittedly forced upon medical thought
and science.

Therefore, when patriotism called and
the demand for volunteer physicians issued
from Washington I immediately applied for
enlistment in the "Volunteer Medical Serv-
ice Corps of the United States." My first
application was sent to Washington the
middle of August, 1918, and a second one
September 2. On the application blank
filed before even a rumor of the "Spanish
Influenza" was bruited, the question, "For
what service do you volunteer?" I an-
swered, "Acute Diseases;" and the question,
"Where is your first choice?" I answered,
"At Fort Sheridan, or the Great Lakes
Training Station, or Chicago;" and under
"Remarks," I added these words: "I want
to give all there is in me to our Govern-
ment." In these answers as well as in con-
versation I intimated the probability of an


epidemic because I felt that the soldiers'
rations and the "Food Conservation Rules"
were not autologic and would develop dis-
ease in the soldiers and people.

Lest you should think that I was pre-
sumptuous in my volunteer-address to the
President, I must say that I had been re-
peatedly urged to request the Government
for a demonstration of the Autologic Pre-
vention and Cure of Disease among soldiers
and civilians, thousands of whom had boys
in the service.

The thousands of Autologists who un-
derstand the situation realize how painfully
acute this handcuffed inactivity was to me
in the influenza crisis that demoralized the
army and country, defying all the means
and wits of the medical and health authori-
ties. If there be soul in the motto, "There
is no death, They all survive," I still feel
that the collective soul of our heroes felled
by influenza and pneumonia will unite with
the souls of MOTHERS, wives and sweet-
hearts to secure me a just hearing in the
service of the country.

If "credentials" are needed those re-
ceived from Harvard and Chicago can be
weighed in with thousands of personal com-
mendations and grateful letters from doc-
tors, lawyers, judges, dentists, clergymen,
merchants, capitalists and MOTHERS as
well as with the scientific recognition of
Autology by the Lexicographers of Har-


vard, Cornell, Princeton, Columbia, Penn-
sylvania and other Universities. (See, The
New Universities Dictionary, 1915.)

It was therefore duty's justifiable right
that prompted me to write direct to Presi-
dent Wilson, as follows:


An army decimated by disease lends more com-
fort to the enemy than one decimated in battle.
Man power will win the war. Health suscitates man
power. Epidemics destroy man power. Epidemics
are the thugs of war.

It is a well-established fact that the surest and
safest defenses of the body against germs and
diseases are normal blood and digestive juices and
that a diminution in this bactericidal power means a
'run-down' condition of the person. It is an equally
well established fact that the only sure and lasting
defenses of the body against a run-down condition
are good nutrition, hygiene, work and personal
habits. A healthy body is self-immune. Devoting
some study to the analysis and understanding of
the body's means at self-immunization is fruitful of
rewards. Much is known in the literature on this
subject but little has been made practical. Physiolo-
gists know that normal blood and digestive juices
possess chemical substances that are inimical to the
life of our bacterial foes. If we can analyze the
chemical changes in the blood and tissues which
cause a person to get 'run down' and put him at
the mercy of his bacterial foes, we surely can work
out a normal beneficent method of increasing the
blood's store of normal bactericidal substances.

In living we produce body-acids and by eating
we supply food-alkali. We are built up by foods
that are made up of acid-forming and base-forming
elements, and our metabolism is such that our blood


is, so to speak, always on the verge of turning acid.
We are saved from that evil by the alkali in the
blood and tissues which, of course, derive them
from our foods. The body is a factory in which
occurs an incessant mating and unmating of acid
and alkaline substances. It is capable of health and
survival only to the extent of understanding and
heeding the mating and unmating of acid-forming
and base-forming substances of the blood with the
acid-forming and base-forming substances of foods.
Normal alkalinity of the blood and tissues must be
maintained through the foods, or disease appears.
If the body is lacking in alkali it necessarily with-
holds from neutralization and elimination a certain
amount of poisonous organic and mineral acids.

We breathe air into the lungs to rob it of oxy-
gen which is taken up by the arterial blood and car-
ried to the tissues where the carbon is burned or
oxidized. This burning of carbon yields carbonic
acid, which then is returned by the venous blood to
the lungs to be breathed out. The balance of the
carbonic acid yielded by tissue-oxidation is neutral-
ized in the tissues and eliminated mostly through
the kidneys. The inevitable result of a retention of
carbonic acid and its compounds beyond the normal
quotient in the blood and tissues brings on that 'run
down' which invites and underlies bacterial and
other diseases. Carbonic acid and its compounds
deplete the blood and tissues of their supply of
alkali, and thus produce the abnormal changes which
develop disease. This alkali-depleting activity is
characteristic of all organic and mineral acids pro-
duced in the body.

The blood and tissues are supplied through the
foods with 'free' and 'fixed' bases or alkali. Dur-
ing the formative stage of any disease the first alkali
to go are the free, and the last to go are the fixed,
All tissues or organs do not yield their fixed alkali
with the same ease.


The digestive cells, or the liver cells, or the
brain cells may be the first to answer the blood's call
for more alkali in some cases, whereas in others the
kidneys or the lungs will be the first to give up their
reserve of fixed alkali in order to control or check
the disease. So there are really no fundamental dif-
ferences between diseases. The difference is merely
in the particular functional importance of the
special organ or tissue subjected by the blood to
the greatest drain of alkali. During the prodromal
stage, say of pneumonia, there occurs an impoverish-
ment of the patient's blood in alkali; then follows
an impoverishment of the tissue-alkali more or less
generally, but localizing itself more specifically in
the lungs. This dilucidation of the etiology and
modus operandi of diseases is accurate. It has the
support of science and gives a well-defined signifi-
cance to the cause and course of specific diseases.
This interpretation also suggests the normal means
for conferring immunity as well as for aborting and
curing diseases through the alkali-bearing foods.

The underlying cause of infectious diseases is,
therefore, an alkali-depleted diet, and the underlying
cause for failure to abort and cure infectious diseases
in an alkali-depleted dietetic treatment. The evi-
dence that this is correct is overwhelming. It has
long been known that protein bases are essential
components of the activated defense-yielding sub-
stances of foods, called vitamines. Foods are said
to be 'nutritious' and 'non-nutritious,' according
as they yield much or little nitrogenous, carbohy-
drate and fat substances. In keeping with this con-
ception, foods were long ago divided into (1) Pro-
teins, (2) Carbohydrates, (3) Fats. Fruits and
green vegetables are not classified. The wonderful
vitalizing acids and salts they yield are relegated to
the "ash" column. Nevertheless, fruits and green
vegetables yield to the blood more activating acids


and bases than all nutritious foods together, and,
moreover, yield them with little or no demand on
digestion, absorption and assimilation. These par-
ticular acids and bases readily travel to the blood
and are quickly utilized to build up and repair tis-
sues, to promote immunity to and recovery from

All treatments must prove unsatisfactory or
failures if (1) the oxygen-intake and (2) the alkali-
yield are deficient.

(1) The oxygen-intake. The chief source of
this is the air. It is not the only source, however.
The body's protein and carbohydrate and fat tissues
contain considerable oxygen, but not enough to
oxidize their own carbon and furnish the supply
needed for repair. Fortunately, nature offers us a
prolific source of oxygen in the acids of fruits and
the oxides of green vegetables. This seems to have
been overlooked in Curative Dietetics. Apart from
their invaluable and indispensable property of form-
ing bases in the blood the acids and alkali of fruits
and green vegetables are generous oxygen-yielders.

(2) The alkali-yield. The alkali-yield of a pro-
tein-carbohydrate-fat diet is always deficient, and its
deficiency is always increased by the usual ways of
cooking and 'serving' foods. Most all typical foods
show a relative predominance af acid-forming over
base-forming elements.

Eliminating sundry items that do not invalidate
the arrangement, the quantity of the elements sup-
plied by the customary three meals a day are fairly
represented in beef, eggs, bread, potatoes, prunes
and beans. Beef, eggs and bread yield a predomi-
nance of acid-forming elements; and potatoes, prunes
and beans yield a predominance of base-forming
elements. The question then arises: Are the first
three acid-forming foods balanced by the second
three base-forming foods? If they are, all right.


If they are not, all wrong. If we adopt 100 as the
acid-forming coefficient of beef, we learn that eggs
contribute 90 and bread 27—a total of 217 for the
acid-forming foods. Computing likewise the base-
forming foods we give potatoes 100, prunes 79 and
beans 30—a total of 209 for the base-forming foods.
That seems good—but, weight for weight exclusive
of the water content of the two groups, most people
eat much more of the first than of the second group.
Moreover, as shown by Locke and others, 'when
meats are boiled 20 to 67 per cent of the salts were
found in the broth . . .' and 'when roasted 2.5
to 57.2 per cent of the mineral matter were found
in the drippings of the meat.' Then, on the other
hand, 'when potatoes were peeled and then soaked
in cold water before boiling 38 per cent of the min-
eral matter was lost.' It is quite proper, therefore,
to reduce the base-forming coefficient to about one-
third of the acid-forming,—particularly so if we take
stock of the acid-forming fats, oils, lard, sweets and
pastry usually consumed. Consequently, the body
has to contend with and solve the following sort of
health-disease equation:

Base-forming : acid-forming :: 69 : 217,—a sad
plight when one realizes that health has only a per-
centage of 69 to oppose disease's 217. How does
the individual survive? By increasing his output of
ammonia which causes debility and puts him at the
mercy of infectious, contagious and other diseases.

In these days of bacterial inoculations the idea
of normal immunization sounds like an outlandish
paradox. But the gruesome debacle created by influ-
enza makes this commitment imperative. Millions of
Americans are passing into Camps as sound of body
to be then made unsound, at least for a time, by the
belief that bacterial vaccination protects them against
disease, typhoid fever and pneumonia in particular.
Regular Medicine has argued that so long as there is


a chance of men contracting typhoid fever they should
be put through a preparatory course of typhoid-toxin
infection. This practise is pregnant with unspeakable
harm. There is a reason why bacterin inoculation
seemingly protects the victim against typhoid for a
certain length of time, but the alleged protection is a
detriment instead of a boon. Bacterin-immunization
is always detrimental, as the coming evidence proves.

At the age of eight the writer was taught to
smoke a puff or two, not enough to sicken him. One
day he got hold of a pipe and took a good smoke and
was made deathly sick. But he was at it again in a
few days, and, oh joy, he had become immune to
nicotinitis. Although that 'initial treatment' of to-
bacco-immunization was not an unadulterated bless-
ing, the fact remains that he had been made 'immune'
to the vomiting of nicotinitis. Like millions of others
he had accomplished the remarkable feat of making
his blood and flesh fool-proof, literally, to the bene-
ficent warnings of nicotin. But in no sense had
genuine immunity to the poisonous action of nicotin
accrued to him. Nicotin had purely adulterated the
chemical constitution of nerve and brain cells, and
thus put a stop to their annoying him with their
normal emetic function. His blood and tissues had
acquired a genuine nicotin-taint. They became nicb-
tinized, but not immune. In this sense only are per-
sons made immune by any kind of inoculations or
poisons. As smoking, even only a few times, confers
on one the inability to react visibly or subjectively to
larger doses of nicotin infection so the bacterin tox-
ins confer on one the inability to react visibly or sub-
jectively to larger doses of typhoid or pneumonia in-
fections. In other words, the soldier who is 'pro-
tected' is merely in shape to inhost and hatch larger
doses of germs and infection without immediately
feeling or showing the beneficent warnings of disease-
He can 'catch' typhoid, or pneumonia, or influenza


all right but stands little chance of feeling or showing
their prodromal signs or symptoms. His true resist-
ing and recuperating powers are blunted and incapable
of immediately reacting as formally and as nature
intended for his self-preservation. His body is robbed
of its most essential faculty. Bacterin-immunization
'toughens' the genuine sensibilities of the individual
for anticipated germ-invasion only in the sense that
whiskey or 'dope' toughens the genuine sensibilities
of the thug for the anticipated burglary.

The first dose of morphine sickens, but the drug
addict soon becomes immune and almost lives on it.
He is not immune, however, to the devitalizing effects
of the drug. So it is with bacterin immunization.
The individual adulterates his body, and, in return,
the body fools the individual. His blood and body
can no more register normally. The 'course' of im-
munization given our army and navy men deprives
them of the normal faculty of reacting to average
doses of infection or germs, a faculty retained by
the non-immunized. Just the same, the average
doses of germs or of infection to which the immun-
ized are likely to be exposed will insidiously work
for his undoing some time later.

It is well-known that a non-immunized person
subjected to mild or moderate amounts of typhoid
germs or poison does not necessarily develop typhoid
fever, but he feels and shows malaise, anorexia, head-
ache, coated tongue, slight fever in the evening, etc.,
from which he can soon recover. But the immunized
is fool-proofed to these normal beneficent warning
symptoms of oncoming typhoid without being in any
sense protected against the action of the germs or
poison in other directions.

Few would claim that no real damage is done
when a youth intoxicates himself to make his body
immune to alcohol. The same logic forcibly insists
that real damage must likewise ensue when men are
typhoided to make them immune to typhoid germs.


Ordinary good sense tells us that immunizing with
alcohol does not increase true resistance to whiskey
but that it actually destroys that power—else the in-
itial dosing would not make one sick. The same ordi-
nary good sense must convince us that inoculating
poisonous bacterins does not truly increase men's re-
sistance to germ-diseases,—else the immunizing treat-
ment would not sicken them. Called by its right
name the treatment given our men is morbific con-
tamination. The touchstone of medical immunization
is, therefore, a genuine contamination supposed to
save the individual for a while from a fictitious
contamination. Creating genuine evil that fictitious
good may result is not in nature's laboratories.

The medical significance of immunity is given
by Halliburton in these words:

'Normal blood possesses not only phagocytes,
which eat up bacteria, but also a certain amount of
chemical substances which are inimical to the life of
our bacterial foes. But suppose a person gets "run
down"; everyone knows he is then more liable to
"catch anything." This coincides with a diminution
in the bactericidal power of his blood. But even a
perfectly healthy person has not an unlimited supply
of bacteriolysins, and if the bacteria are sufficiently
numerous he will fall a victim to the disease they pro-
duce. Here, however, comes in the remarkable part
of the defense. In the struggle he will produce more
and more bacterio-lysin, and if he gets well it means
that the bacteria are finally vanquished, and his blood
remains rich in the particular bacteriolysin he has pro-
duced, and so will render him immune to further at-
tacks from that particular species of bacterium. Every
bacterium seems to cause the development of a spe-
cific anti-substance.'

After emphasizing the words "seems to cause *
the question may be asked: Is the alleged specific
anti-substance which the bacterium seems to cause the
development of a good or a bad substance in the


blood? The a priori answer is that it is a bad sub-
stance, because genuine poison cannot produce gen-
uine good. But even if logic be disregarded, analogy
assures us that the development of a specific anti-sub-
stance caused by injecting some germ-poison must
prove deleterious to blood and flesh as is shown by
the specific anti-substances developed by nicotin, alco-
hol, morphine, cocaine, etc. These chemical organic
poisons are fundamentally like bacterium poisons.
We are, therefore, privileged to paraphrase the medi-
cal interpretation of immunity in these words: Even
a perfectly healthy person has not an unlimited sup-
ply of morphinlysins, and if the morphine is suffi-
ciently abundant he will fall a victim to the disease it
produces. Here, however, comes the remarkable part
of the defense. In the struggle he will produce more
and more morphine-lysin, and if he gets well it means
that the morphine is finally vanquished, and his blood
remains rich in the particular morphine-lysin he has
produced, and so will render him immune to further
attacks from that particular species of poison.

In the struggle of morbific immunization the
blood may generate a specific anti-substance, but it
surely loses its specific normal constitution, the one
owned by most of our 'recruits' until they are
deprived of it by the immunizing treatment. The
only true version of the 'increased power of resist-
ance' seemingly conferred by alcoholizing or mor-
phinizing is that the 'treatment' actually disorganizes
the normal constitution of protoplasm by causing
it to acquire the specific alcohol or morphine organi-
zation, or taint. Likewise, the only rational version
of the 'immunity' seemingly conferred by bacterin-
izing or anti-toxinizing is that the treatment actually
disorganizes the normal constitution of protoplasm
by causing it to acquire part of the specific toxic
organization, or taint, of the bacteria or toxins. The
'specific anti-substance' is not a new entity; it is
purely a degraded sort of blood, lymph and proto-


plasm, exactly as with the immune to alcohol, mor-
phine, cocaine, etc.

If we are to accept as genuinely desirable the
specific anti-substances developed by bacterin-inocu-
lations for typhoid, etc., then we must accept as gen-
uinely desirable epidemics of measles, scarlet fever,
diphtheria and influenza, as well as "epidemics" of
alcohol, morphine, nicotine, cocaine, etc. That shocks
sanity. The utmost we could concede if we had to
would be to look upon bacterin-immunization as the
lesser of two evils, a sort of necessary evil. It so hap-
pens that nature has not put such a dilemma up to us,
for after giving us normal immunity to average doses
of germs she gave us the wherewith to increase that
power quite efficaciously and with no discomfort nor
risk of any kind.

It is recognized by all military experts that the
only genuine and lasting defenses of the body are
proper foods, hygiene, work and personal habits. The
average 'accepted' man is in pretty good shape when
he reaches camp, but if he were not do the practition-
ers of morbific immunization claim that bacterin-im-
munization would benefit or cure his 'run down'
troubles? They do not claim that morbific immuni-
zation compensates the blood for lack of health, or of
proper rations, or of scrupulous hygiene, or of good
personal habits, etc. Therefore, morbific immuniza-
tion is nothing else than a pernicious practice to attain
some spurious benefit or delusive result.

A healthy body is self-immunizing as all admit,
but civilized livingness is generally one sick-spell after
another. Every sick-spell is a drain on the alkali of
the blood causing analkalinity. The body has not
unlimited power of recuperation, but it has been
abundantly demonstrated that it has almost unlim-
ited power of resisting analkalinity; for it will die
before turning acid. Therein lies the secret of the
body's normal power of immunity to bacteria, and


therein lies the secret of increasing that normal power
in order to cope against the invasion of "sufficiently
numerous bacteria" to produce disease; or, given the
disease, to quickly destroy the bacteria, neutralize
and eliminate their poisons. This remarkable, though
quite natural, result is achievable by simply increas-
ing the blood-alkalinity yield of the food supply. The
word 'alkalinity' itself is distinctly suggestive of the
specific origin of the chemical substances with which
the body compounds its so-called bacterio-lysins. All
will confess that people need more anti-lysins to off-
set their health-impairing habits and dietetic sins than
they need to conquer their bacterial foes. If under
such average conditions the body can produce out of
a 69:217 base-acid coefficient enough bacterio-lysins
to make the person's blood normally immune to ordi-
nary invasions of bacteria, it may readily be conceived
that the body will produce a virtually unlimited sup-
ply of bacterio-lysins if that base-acid coefficient be
reversed to 217:69—for the activated blood-lysins
are base-proteins. For twenty years the writer has
accumulated clinical evidence to more than convince
him and thousands of 'patients' of the correctness of
the foregoing ideas and data.

Endeavors to enrich the blood of fever or infect-
ed patients with base-forming or vitamine elements
through the time-honored protein-carbohydrate-fat
groups of foods always fail lamentably. The same is
true of drugs and bacterial vaccines. The saddest
kind of evidence is now surging at the naval and army
camps. Science and duty call for an end to this and
future catastrophes. Medical 'ethics' must not lend
comfort to our bacterial nor german foes. Aside from
the bacterin contaminations, the regulation medical
diet for the well and for the sick is irrational, for it
serves to clutter up the alimentary tract with a decom-
posing food-mass which yields some nutrition, but
also a rank supply of infecting or microbe-kulturing


Fruits and green vegetables are not "luxuries"
nor 'roughage' in the dietary of civilized people.
Chemical electricity shows that the acid and mineral
elements in tissue-cells generate and feed vital and
nutritional electricity to the body. These 'nutritive'
electro-genetic acids and minerals all come from the
elements in food. Our knowledge as to the source
and course of the power for offense and defense
generated mechanically by electricity is significant as
to the source and course of the body's physiological
power of offense and defense against its every foe.
From all of the above considerations it appears evi-
dent that man-power in health is at least as much
dependent on fruits and green vegetables as on pro-
tein, carbohydrate and fat foods; and it appears
evident also that man-power in or against germs and
disease is more dependent on and is more developed
by the acids and bases of fruits and green vegetables
than on or by bacterial vaccines, drugs and 'nour-
ishing' foods. Given their former bill-of-fare at
home and now the military bill-of-fare, our 'boys'
are kept pretty well saturated with the acid-formed
products and by-products of the protein-carbohy-
drate-fat diet. The present epidemic of influenza
and pneumonia is purely an explosion of those fever-
ish 'nutritive' products. There is no danger of the
men not getting enough 'solid food' to eat, but
what their blood and tissues need most from the
time they join to the time of going over the top is
to store up a large reserve of the alkali and base-
forming elements of fruits and green vegetables.
There is no intention here of depleting the men's
menu of the usual articles of food, but the fact that
these ordinary articles of diet are positively deficient
in blood-invigorating and bacterio-lysin bases must
be emphasized loudly. No matter how accurately
the caloric value or equivalent of a protein-carbohy-
drate-diet be adapted to the work-a-day require-
ments of tissues, that diet cannot promote vigor-


ous health nor offensive strength against bacterial
invasion if the base-acid coefficient is not largely in
favor of the base side of metabolism. Such an
essential military accomplishment cannot be secured
except through fresh fruits and green vegetables.

It must be granted that genuine and positive
immunity to germs and diseases issue from the prac-
tical application of the foregoing correlative data.
This is no theoretical assumption. This base-vs-acid
and base-vs-germ treatment has been tested in hun-
dreds of cases of a majority of contagious and infec-
tious fevers. It works marvelously well. When the
writer witnessed these results in his first experiments,
which happened to be typhoid cases, he forthwith
discarded drugs and antitoxins and began to look
exclusively to fruits and green vegetables for cur-
ative, preventative and immunizing agents. The
clinical results kept adding even to his already
exuberant enthusiasm. Only one serious difficulty
arose. The 'pulps' of fruits proved particularly
objectionable in treating acute fevers, because in
order to administer to the patient in one hour or in
a day the required dosage a prohibitive amount of
the pulpy juices would have to be swallowed. This
difficulty became heart-breaking in young children
and in delirious and comatose patients. But after
some years of investigating and experimenting he
hit upon a normal adjunct which solved the prob-,
lem. This adjunct is rigidly ethical. That adjunct
has been a bete-noire to medical 'ethics' but a god-
send to untold thousands and would be a boon to
the army, navy and country in this war and epi-
demic. If the Council of National Defense deems
fit to command him he shall further elucidate his
contentions, reveal the nature of the 'adjunct' and
demonstrate results anywhere, paying his own
expenses and, if desired, pay for the first $1,000.00
worth of the fruits and green vegetables and adjunct
required, and he will further agree not to partici-


pate directly nor indirectly in the sale or profits of
said adjunct.

Respectfully submitted to His Excellency, the
President of the United States, by an humble citizen.

Highland Park, Illinois, Sept. 27, 1918.

I received a reply, dated October 9,
1918, signed "D. C. Howard, Colonel, Med-
ical Corps," saying that my letter to the
President had been referred to the "Office
of The Surgeon General, War Department,
Washington," and that "It is suggested that
you submit your proposition to the Council
of Pharmacy and Chemistry of the Ameri-
can Medical Association, Chicago, Ill., for

I carried out the suggestion duly and
fully. But, as was to be expected, the re-
ply from the Council on Pharmacy and
Chemistry of the American Medical Asso-
ciation showed that my proposition did not
come within the scope of the workings of
that body.

I then addressed the following letter to
Dr. D. C. Howard:

"October 22, 1918. Dear Doctor: In accord-
ance with your suggestion I submitted the proposi-
tion to the Council on Pharmacy and Chemistry of
the American Medical Association for consideration.
Herewith is enclosed copy of the Council's reply.
May I remark that your kind letter of the 9th led
me to think that my proposition, as referred to your
Office by the President, had been misunderstood;
and now I am quite sure that it was. The 'adjunct'


in question is rigidly ethical, official, and the neces-
sity of proposing it for inclusion in new and non-
official remedies is precluded. Dear Doctor Howard,
may I burden you with a few remarks. My sin-
cerity in this matter is unimpeachable. About the
middle of August I filled out and mailed an applica-
tion for enlistment in the Volunteer Medical Service
Corps. A second blank came from Washington,
September 2; was filled out and mailed back the
same day. Not hearing from it, I addressed a volun-
teer-letter to the President, and same was referred
to your office as you kindly wrote me. I have been
for years carrying on my professional business by
advertising Autology and selling my 'proprietary
remedies,' but this has and had nothing to do with
my proposition nor with the 'adjunct.' When I
wrote to the President I was willing to give up my
whole business and practice, present and future, with
never a thought of reaping a cent directly nor indi-
rectly had my petition and proffer been accepted."

I received a camouflaged answer from
the "Acting Surgeon General."

In the meantime many good autologists
were addressing letters to the President and
to the Council of National Defense at
Washington. I will quote a few.

This is from J. S. Decker, M.D., Ripley,
Tennessee, and is addressed to the Honor-
able Members of the Council of National

Defense, Washington:

"Gentlemen:—As a physician, citizen and
humanitarian, I earnestly petition your Honorable
Council to weigh carefully and conscientiously the
application for enlistment in the Volunteer Medical
Service Corps of the United States submitted by
Dr. Edmond R. Moras, Highland Park, Illinois,


author of Autology and its practice; a man of pre-
eminent ability, a thinker and scientist in the realm
of medicine, as is well recognized and testified to by
thousands of persons in every walk of life, profes-
sional and lay, who have been restored to health and
are able to maintain health by living autologically.
Scores of physicians throughout this broad land are
exclusively autologists in their practice. In the pres-
ent epidemic I have not lost a single case of the
many I have treated, and all have been treated
autologically. I have not administered anything but
the Moras 'adjunct.'

"The wonderful disease preventive value of
Autology has been thoroughly and broadly demon-
strated, and the marvelous curativeness of the
adjunct, especially in acute diseases, can be testified
to by hundreds of physicians and their patients who
are living examples of its merit.

"To-day, when this epidemic is sweeping the
land and devouring its people, especially the men in
the camps, where they are dying like flies, and all
medical authorities are at a loss to cope with it, not
only in a curative sense but preventively, the one
man in the whole realm of medicine thoroughly cap-
able of handling the situation, retard its progress and
save the lives of thousands, not only in an imme-
diate sense, but future as well, as the result of the
knowledge acquired of health and disease, its pre-
ventive and curative knowledge, lies inactive, nation-

ally, not of his own volition, but because he has not
been called to the service for which he has patriotic-
ally volunteered, as a humanitarian, one who would
be like a ministering angel to the suffering boys in
the camps and their anxious loved ones at home.

"Gentlemen: In view of Dr. Moras' application
which has been filed, it must be evident to you that
he is not actuated by any base or ulterior motive.
He has not only offered his services, but his wealth,
all that is best within him, to the service of his


country and its people. How can such a man be
ignored in such a crisis as we are undergoing? By
what process of reasoning can any broad-minded
man or body of men, thinking men, deny to the
country and its people in such dire need the unselfish
devotion of such a man?

"May your Honorable body, in the performance
of your patriotic duty, which is essentially the wel-
fare of the country and its people, recognize the
vital necessity of immediately calling into service
Dr. Edmond R. Moras."

This is from Mr. Nat. Brown, Treasurer
and Manager, Brown Bros. & Co., Elk-
horn, Wisconsin:

"Honorable Gentlemen:—The writer's attention
has been called to a letter dated September 27, 1918,
addressed to His Excellency, the President of the
United States, by Dr. Edmond R. Moras, of High-
land Park, Illinois, in which he unselfishly offers his
vast knowledge, experience and personal services to
the Government for the purpose of combating the
horrible epidemic of Influenza now ravaging our
country and destroying the flower of our manhood,
an evil far worse than all of the Kaiser's armies and

"The writer, his family, his friends and many
of his acquaintances have been living Autology for
years as preached and practiced by Dr. Moras. We
all know his teachings to be practically infallible
because right among ourselves we have seen and
have been parties to diseases and epidemics of the
most precarious kind, many of which were pro-
nounced hopeless by eminent physicians, and all of
which were swiftly and surely overcome through
Dr. Moras' commonsense, natural treatment. His
"fresh-fruit-green-vegetable and adjunct" contention
is unquestionably the only permanent remedy and


his generous offer a Godsend to our stricken masses.

"To disregard Dr. Moras' warnings and services
would be a national calamity and the guilt would
fall on the shoulders of those who are dumb to his

"The writer urgently requests in the name of
Humanity that Dr. Moras be given an immediate
hearing before your Honorable Council so that he
can elucidate his contention and have it put into
practice without any delay.

"Gentlemen: Remember that every day, every
hour of procrastination means hundreds of lives need-
lessly sacrificed, perhaps the lives of your own boys
and those of our boys, several of whom are now in

"Gentlemen, this is an appeal to your Honor,
Patriotism and Duty from an American citizen."

This one is from a New Yorker, Head-
quarters, etc., but it would not help the
cause and it would harm him to publish
his name:

"Dear Doctor:—Please do not think that I have
not done anything in regards to your volunteer let-
ter to the President. The truth is I have been busy
in carrying an appeal to someone right here who,
had he just mentioned the fact to the Council of
National Defense it would have meant as much as
a command to do it and it would have been done
by this time—but it is pitiful to say that someone
at Washington is very much averse to it for rea-
sons which I cannot give you by letter. It is pitiful
indeed something cannot be done for humanity, and

all for the sake of a lot of ------ fools, pardon the

expression won't you, but one must give vent to
their feelings. . . ."

The following letter is from Allan D.
Millard, C.E., Beardstown, Illinois:


"October 13, 1918.
"Council of National Defense,
"Washington, D. C.

"Gentlemen:—In order to show my reasons for
commending Dr. Moras to your thoughtful consider-
ations at this time, I will state as briefly as I can
my experience with him. After the spending of
two years in the Yazoo (Mississippi) Delta on rail-
road construction, I returned north in 1902. From
1902 till 1910, I was repeatedly stricken by severe
chills and fever. In the summer of 1910, after long
treatment by the best physicians of Springfield, Illi-
nois, for malaria, I was advised to take a course of
mud baths at Mudlavia, Indiana. This I did, return-
ing home in a very weakened condition. I then
took a long course of Osteopathic treatment, which,
outside of badly irritating my spine, led to no results.
This was followed by a very expensive course of
physical culture exercises, which got me nowhere.
In the meantime my eyesight had failed amazingly
and from my waking until retiring each day, I was
sorely troubled by neuritis from left eye, down
through my left arm, to the tips of my fingers. To
relieve this condition, I recall that I spent $85.00
the last year I wore glasses, with no results at all.
Altogether I wore glasses for nearly fifteen years.
The last specialist examining my eyes, told me my
trouble was from 'hereditary taint,' whatever that
is. Considering the fact that my family is one of
the oldest and most straight-laced in New England,
I felt that piece of information was not worth the
$25.00 I paid for it. As I had a large family to
support and my means were about gone from inabil-
ity to work steadily, together with the extraordinary
cost of doctoring, I had about concluded to consign
myself to a state of invalidism for the rest of my
days and let it go at that. In the fall of 1912,
after one of my periodic outbreaks of malaria, I
ran across a magazine ad of "Autology," written


by Dr. Moras. I wrote for descriptive literature
and, some time later, paid him $5.00 for his book
and $2.00 for two boxes of a preparation he makes,
called 'Detoxyl,' to expel toxic poison. After read-
ing the book and following his instructions as to
diet therein contained, together with the use of fruit
juices and so on, I began to be what I was before
I went to Mississippi. Thinking that if I had a
personal diagnosis and so on from him, I might get
well faster, I wrote him and asked his terms, which
were rather less than those of other well-known
specialists I had previously consulted. He stated,
however, that he did not want my money, but that
I should keep hard at my then course of right liv-
ing and result would follow more rapidly as I grew
better. This I found to be true, as well as the rather
novel experience of having a doctor turn down a
$50.00 fee. As I got better, my eyesight got all
right and I quit glasses. At the same time, my wife
who had worn glasses for a number of years, by
right living abolished hers too. My work consists
largely of drafting, which means exacting the utmost
from eyes. I have no trouble with them at all.

"Now as to Doctor Moras' ability with acute
diseases. In the spring of 1915, my three children
were accidentally exposed to measles. As soon as
we found it out, we immediately put them on a light
diet and had them drink a great deal of lemon and
orange juice. When, one by one they came down
with it, none of them had a temperature of over 100
degrees and we did not have the doctor to any of
them. They were all well within a week. The
same thing was done later, here in Beardstown,
when our little baby was unintentionally exposed
to measles. She recovered quickly without doctor's
assistance and with no come-backs. Our three
youngest children, the youngest of the three being
six and one-half years old, have never had a doctor
to them since the day they were born and they are


all well, except when we depart from Dr. Moras'
regime by letting them visit relatives, and live the
way they ought not to.

"In closing, will state that I have no quarrel with
doctors; as a profession, I have no doubt that they
are like the rest of us humans, good, bad and indif-
ferent. I do believe, however, that Dr. Moras, who
has had unusual advantages in the way of educa-
tion and experience (which can be easily demon-
strated if the matter is investigated), is the most
competent physician I have ever known. He teaches
right living; and you know that is rather after the
fashion of Ben Franklin's proverb, which runs:
'Nature cures, but the doctor collects the fee.'
Other doctors have been down on Doctor Moras,
because he advertises his book, Autology; we engi-
neers occasionally write books covering some branch
of our profession. We advertise them and if the
layman wants to bay a copy, he's welcome. Speak-
ing personally, I was never able to see what there
is that is unethical about that. Engineering is
applied common sense; the same thing ought to be
applied to doctoring; there is no particular mystery
about it that I can see."

Thereupon came a letter from Dr.
Franklin Martin, Chairman General Medi-
cal Board, Council of National Defense,
Washington, acknowledging receipt of my
"article in connection with Autologic Pre-
vention of Disease," and saying, "we will
be glad to look the matter over and recom-
mend it wherever feasible."

It is well to invite attention to the fact
that Dr. Howard's reply from the Surgeon
General's Office ignores the subject of my
letter to President Wilson; whereas Dr,


Martin's reply specifically recognizes the
subject of my letter to the President as
"Autologic Prevention of Disease."

I then wrote a letter to Dr. Martin, in
which I say:

"In view of the letters which your office has
received I feel that you truly believe that the follow-
ing remarks are in no way boastful nor unjustified.
What I have done for many years for thousands of
persons and patients can be done for the army, navy
and country in this influenza and pneumonia crisis.
The people can be taught how to abort the epidemic
all over the United States within a few days, and
every case saved in a few hours; the complication,
pneumonia, positively prevented and every case
aborted within 24 hours. Practically every life in
all our camps could have been and can be saved.
Should you feel disposed to accord me a hearing
and grant me the opportunity to demonstrate in
camp what has long been a demonstrated fact in
my professional work, I will be pleased to person-
ally go into dietetic and therapeutic details regard-
ing the specific use of certain fruits and green vege-
tables and, likewise, regarding the ethical adjunct."

In the face of this, Dr. (Colonel)
Franklin Martin's answer this time ignores
absolutely the subject at hand and reverts
only to my application for membership in
the Volunteer Medical Service Corps, stat-
ing that "insofar as this office is concerned
your name will be sent with the others to
the committee in the State of Illinois.
Three favorable votes out of the committee
are required to elect a doctor to mem-


Needless to say that the "Executive
Committee in the State of Illinois" is the
American Medical Association.

It would seem that the doctors at Wash-
ington and Illinois were in red-hot haste to
make one another Colonel and Major, but
snail-like in their desire to prevent disease
and save the lives of thousands of soldiers
and people!

To the thinking people, the way my
proposition to the President has been
handled at Washington is direfully menac-
ing. The American Medical Association
is rankly partisan and sectarian, as all
people know; but it evidently has gained
absolute, autocratic control of the mightiest
vital function or power of our government.
The American Medical Association having
achieved more political power than the
people has pawned off on the government
its morbific-inoculating delusion. This is
remindful of by-gone days when the
enforcement of horrible beliefs and prac-
tices was delegated to the perpetrators of
Inquisitions and Witchcraft.

Before me is a letter, dated "Chicago,
October 23, 1918," addressed to the Medi-
cal Profession from the Illinois Influenza
Commission, consisting of sixteen doctors
and not a single layman. It reads:

"In order that everything possible may be done
to limit the spread of influenza and to prevent dan-


gerous complicating infections, arrangements have
been made for the preparation on a large scale of
vaccine for preventive purposes. . . . At pres-
ent two vaccines are being used for the prevention
of influenza. In the east, a vaccine made from the
influenza baccillus only is used quite generally. It
is as yet too early to form any conclusion as to the
value of this vaccine. In Minnesota, a mixed vac-
cine composed of the most important bacteria of the
throat and lungs in influenza and its complications
(influenza baccilli, streptococci, pneumococci and
staphylococci) is in use, and apparently favorable
results are reported. This is the vaccine prepared
by Dr. E. C. Rosenow of the Mayo Foundation.
The vaccine which is now available for general
use has been prepared according to this method.
The initial dose is .5 c.c, and contains approxi-
mately two and one-half billions bacteria. This is
followed in one week by 1 c.c. The third dose is
to be given 14 days after the first dose, and is to
consist of 1-1/2 c.c. In most instances there is a
moderate local reaction. Constitutional symptoms
are usually mild, or absent. It is believed that
some immunity is developed soon after the first
injection. . . . It is felt that if the vaccine
is used according to the directions on each vial,
no harm can result."

Altogether the well victim is going to
have shot into his blood 15,000,000,000
dead bacilli, and "it is felt that no harm can
result." If that is true, why not shoot the
whole dose of fifteen billions at once instead
of over a period of two weeks?

If now we turn the pages of history a
few centuries back, we find in Macaulay's
Eng., ch. 4, p. 402 and p. 410, the follow-
ing account of the "commingling-death"


of Charles II. "All the medical men of
note in London were summoned. So high
did political animosities run, that the pres-
ence of some Whig physicians was regarded
as an extraordinary circumstance. Several
of the prescriptions have been preserved.
One of them is signed by fourteen doctors.
A loathsome volatile salt, extracted from
human skulls, was forced into the patient's
mouth. The fourteen doctors contradicted
each other and themselves. The majority
tortured him during some hours like an
Indian at a stake. One physician, however,
protested and assured the queen that his
brethren would kill the king among them."
And they did.

Charles the Second's Royal Medical
Commission forced a loathsome extract
from human skulls into his stomach, and
the Illinois Medical Influenza Commission
is forcing a putrid extract of suppurative
bacilli and cocci from human throats and
lungs into people's blood. As Elbert Hub-
bard would say, pinch yourself, for the
Medical Profession calls itself progres-
sive (!).

Fifteen billions bacilli-carcasses for the
phagocytes of one person's blood to devour
in two weeks—that's some ration! What

a struggle! And what for? To make him
supposedly immune to a disease he hasn't
got and is not likely to get any more than he
was before getting the three "shots" of


fifteen billion carcasses. As well dump
fifteen billions dead rats into the streets of
Chicago for its citizens to devour and make
them immune to the rat plague. Can a
sane mind see the difference? The simile
is exact.

The same letter from the "Illinois In-
fluenza Commission" says:

"Both local and general reaction are decidedly
less than those following typhoid vaccines."

Little wonder, then, that thousands upon thou-
sands of our sturdy men in military camps have suc-
cumbed and died like flies from influenza and
pneumonia. After each one's blood had devoured
the virulent carcasses of billions of typhoid bacilli,
how could it devour an ordinary accidental dose
of influenza bacilli, pneumococci, etc., without
being worsted in the struggle?

If thinking men like Luther Burbank
are "wholly satisfied" that my conclusions
and analysis of facts on the subject of mor-
bid vaccines are correct, as elucidated in
my volunteer-letter to President Wilson,
surely the American people as a whole are
likewise susceptible to being wholly satis-
fied if those facts on the subject are brought
to their attention. There are over a million
autologists dispersed over the country.
Each autologist can if he wants to earnestly

convert one or more non - autological
friend. Not patriotism alone calls, but
humanity itself, and your sons and daugh-
ters, too. The loathsome vaccine fetish
must be downed.


Citizenship in this country is funda-
mentally based on the principle that any
one citizen is the equal of any other in
civic rights. The doctors' duty is trans-
lated as loyalty to the American Medical
Association. Your duty, as you know it,
is translated as loyalty to the American
People. Their inoculation theory is as
medieval and barbaric as was the practice
of the fourteen doctors who forced a loath-
some putrid extract from human skulls into
King Charles of England, centuries ago.
Whereas your autological knowledge and
practice are admittedly scientific and in
accord with sound sense.

As Ed Howe says:

"Our American doctors are a wonderful lot,
until there is serious sickness."

First of all when soldiers and people
are dying by the thousands, they create a
morbid panic by blaring out all over the
newspapers this warning: "People help
yourselves the best you can; we can't do a
thing; the epidemic will get worse and then
run its course." People then proceed to
close the schools, churches, theatres, etc.,
and thus aggravate the fact that the des-
perate situation has become a hopeless
calamity. But as the agonizing predica-
ment is intensified so is the doctors' adver-
tising of the "coming curative vaccines."
They organize "Influenza Commissions"
and "the undertaking is financed by gener-


ous public spirited citizens,"—and tens of
thousands of people are given the "shots."
Meantime, a different sort of pantomime is
being rehearsed behind the scenes. Note
the dates of the two letters of the "Illinois
Influenza Commission" and of the two
numbers of "The Journal of the American
Medical Association" from which I will
now quote. The sixteen doctors of the
Commission in a letter addressed "To the
Medical Profession," dated Chicago, Oct.
23, 1918, say: "In the East, a vaccine
made from the influenza bacillus only is
used quite generally. It is as yet too early
to form any conclusion as to the value of
this vaccine. . . In Minnesota, a mixed
vaccine prepared by Dr. E. C. Rosenow is in
use, and apparently favorable results are re-
ported." Then in a letter dated only one
day later, Oct. 24, the same Commission
writes: "After having an inquiry made in
Boston and Washington and after an all-day
interview with Dr. E. C. Rosenow, it was
decided to produce and distribute influenza-
pneumonia vaccine made after the Rosenow
method. At the time of Dr. Rosenow's
visit 20,000 persons had been vaccinated
with results that seemed to the Commission
to warrant pushing the method. . . The
vaccine is furnished free, but private phy-
sicians are entitled to make a proper charge
for administration of the vaccine."

Then, so as to have a leg on both sides


of the fence, the letter concludes thusly:
"If the history of 1889-93 and that of the
epidemic in the East are criteria, this epi-
demic will require at least a month to sub-
side, influenza will be somewhat prevalent
all winter and the death rate from pneu-
monia will not become normal for several
months." There you are! When the
months have passed on, our wonderful doc-
tors will all join in the chorus: "Come,
folks, help us tap one another on the back
for our foresight and efficiency." But
what will the tens of thousands dead and
mourners think?

The next number of The Journal of the
American Medical Association appeared
October 26. It is proper to assume that,
as the members of the Illinois Influenza
Commission are in very close touch with
the editorship of The Journal, the Commis-
sion knew perfectly well what I am about
to quote when they mailed out to the Med-
ical Profession their two letters of October
23 and 24. Nevertheless, here is what ap-
peared editorially in the October 26 num-

"With respect to serums and vaccines in influenza,
there are simple facts and considerations that physi-
cians will do well to keep in mind at this time. The
main point to keep always in sight is that unfor-
tunately we as yet have no specific serum or other
specific means for the cure of influenza, and no
specific vaccines for its prevention. Such is the
fact, all claims and propagandist statements in the


newspapers and elsewhere to the contrary not-

"At least two kinds of vaccines are in use in
the hope that they may have preventive effects.
One consists of killed influenza bacilli, and it is
being extensively used in the east. We have as
yet no decisive figures as to its effects, but there
is an impression that it may have some value.
The other vaccine is a mixed vaccine of the more
important bacteria in the respiratory tract in influ-
enza, principally pneumococci, streptococci and influ-
enza bacilli. It appears that vaccines of this nature
are in extensive use, but we have no evidence that
any benefit will be derived from them. How slender
the basis for this anti-influenzal vaccination when it
is considered that the real nature of influenza is still

Can you beat that? And those were
the sentiments of the members of the Illi-
nois Influenza Commission when they
worked up a committee of public spirited
citizens to finance the anti-influenzal vac-
cination undertaking.

It is appropriate to repeat that editori-
ally the American Medical Association,
speaking ex cathedra, uttered its dictum
that "the main point to keep always in
sight is that unfortunately we as yet have
no specific serum or other specific means
for the cure of influenza and no specific
vaccine or vaccines for its prevention."
That of course is true, but not alone re-
garding influenza, for they have no specific
vaccine or vaccines for the cure or preven-
tion of anything else. However, it is not


true that there is no other known specific
means for the cure and prevention of influ-
enza, etc. For I hold the evidence that a
copy of my letter to the President was in
their hands October 15, and in that letter
I show conclusively that my base-vs-acid
and base-vs-germ treatment is scientifically
and specifically correct and has been over-
whelmingly proven effective in my practice
as well as in thousands of others', and in
which I further propose that I am prepared
to demonstrate results in camps or publicly,
paying all expenses, supplying everything
needed and money besides.

It will bear repeating that the two let-
ters from which I have just quoted are
dated "Chicago, October 23 and 24, 1918."
And it is well to remark that the sixteen
members of the Illinois Influenza Commis-
sion are for the most part, if not all, mem-
bers of the Chicago Medical Society and
of the American Medical Association.
Therefore, they receive and read, even as-
suming that some of them do not act as
assistant editors, the Journal of the Ameri-
can Medical Association which is published
in Chicago. Now, on or before October
19, the October 19 number of the said
Journal had already been distributed to its
subscribers and had been read by at least
the most influential of the Illinois Influenza
Commissioners. Nevertheless, in the face
of what I am about to quote, these same


men obtained money from "a group of gen-
erous citizens" and pawned off on the pub-
lic the Rosenow vaccine, etc. On page
1317, of the Journal of the American Med-
ical Association, dated October 19, 1918,
we read : "In Massachusetts, Commissioner
E. R. Kelly appointed two committees to
investigate the value of influenza vaccines
as a preventive agent and as a treatment
of the disease. The first committee, a spe-
cial board for scientific investigation, con-
sisting of Dr. M. J. Rosenau, chairman, and
Frederick P. Gay and George W. McCoy,
was appointed to consider the evidence
available on the prophylactic and thera-
peutic use of vaccines against influenza.
This committee presented the following

"1. The evidence at hand offers no trustworthy
basis for regarding vaccination against influenza as
of value in preventing the spread of the disease, or
of reducing its severity.

"2. The evidence at hand convinces the board
that the vaccines we have considered have no spe-
cific value in the treatment of influenza.

"The second committee, known as the Special
Board of Statistical Investigation, consisted of Dr.
George C. Whipple, Chairman, William H. Davis
and F. C. Crum. This committee reported:

"The weight of such statistical evidence as we
have been able to accumulate indicates that the use
of influenza vaccine which we have investigated is
without therapeutic benefit. Exceptional cases where
apparent benefit has resulted from the use of the


vaccine can be matched by other cases where similar
recoveries have been made without vaccination."

And, absurdity of absurdities, then
conies this joker:

"As a result, the following recommendations were

"That the state encourage the distribution of
influenza vaccine intended for prophylactic use, but
in such manner as will secure scientific evidence of
the possible value of the agent. The use of such
vaccine is to be regarded as experimental.

"That the state shall neither furnish nor endorse
any vaccine at present in use for the treatment of

O-ho! The vaccine is worthless, but
go to it doctors on your own hook and con-
taminate the people's blood with your germ
carcasses to your hearts' content, but re-
member that like Pilate we wash our hands
of the results of your experiments! Hor-
rors !

A further concession or admission is
made by the editor of The Journal of the
American Medical Association which adds
corroborative evidence of the correctness
of the autologic principles of the cause of
disease, influenza included. I quote the
following from the November 9 number of
The Journal, by the editor:

"We do not understand the true nature of the
condition now being called epidemic influenza; there
is not sufficient evidence to regard any one of the
different forms of bacteria found in the respiratory
tract in the cases of the disease as the primary cause,
but that all the bacteria, the influenza bacillus, as well


as the so-called diplostreptococci and others, may be
secondary invaders, transmissible from person to per-
son with almost the same ease as the supposed, but
unknown, primary cause!"

But the medically "supposed, but un-
known, primary cause," is not autologic-
ally supposed nor unknown. It is known
and stated in Autology and in this book
under "dioxidosis." The fundamental pri-
mary cause of influenza, as well as of other
epidemic diseases, is a dioxidosis condition
of the blood. Given that primary cause,
bacilli, bacteria, cocci may operate as a sec-
ondary cause, but even then these agents
are less often secondary invaders through
transmissibility from person to person than
they are secondary products of normal
"chemical spores" or benign body-bacteria
evolving into virulent bacilli and cocci as
the result of dioxidosis of the blood or of
the secretions. Volatile breath-excretions,
no matter how transmissible from person to
person, will not act as primary nor even sec-
ondary causes of disease in the absence of
dioxidosis. And when a person is in a fit
condition to become "culture soil" for any
"epidemic germ," it is not necessary to sup-
pose that infection takes place through the
air from person to person; for the person's
own blood and secretions are themselves
evolving more epidemic bacilli, etc., than
he can possibly acquire from outside.



What is vaccinopathy? Vaccinopathy
is a malediction of morbidity against hu-
manity, beginning with a baptism of cow-
pox and continuing with the infliction of
bacterial diseases by vaccinating the well
and the sick. It is the prevailing creed and
practice of a sect of doctors who call them-
selves "regulars" but are commonly known
as "allopaths." But, as they have repudi-
ated their regular drug-treatments and allo-
pathic creed and have adopted vaccines as
their prevent-alls and cure-alls the only
relevant, befitting title for them is vaccino-
paths. Their 'science' of disease-prevention
amounts to this: We insure you against
small-pox, typhoid fever, influenza, etc., by
inoculating you with those diseases on the
installment plan. How would it work if
the Insurance Fraternity would institute the
practice of insuring property against fire
by setting fire to buildings on the install-
ment plan?

Vaccinopathy is a medical delusion
more direful to humanity than were the
religious and political delusions of centuries
gone by.

Mothers! What profiteth your babies
to live if their Godmade blood is period-
ically and perpetually tainted with pus-
vaccines? The doctors' immunity-by-vac-
cines is as destructive of health as the im-


munity-by-fire would be destructive of

Who is your physician? Does he wor-
ship at the medical shrine of vaccinopathy?
Is his creed or method of preventing and
curing diseases the infliction of vaccinosis?
Is your doctor a vaccinopath? Do you be-
lieve in vaccinopathy?

Definitions. Vaccinopathy is a medical
method of treating health and disease by
inducing vaccinosis. A vaccinopath is a
doctor who practices and believes in vaccin-
opathy; one who seeks to prevent and cure
diseases by inoculating the healthy and the
sick with bacterial poisons called vaccines.
Vaccinosis is a blood-poisoning intended to
develop in the healthy a modified form of
any contagious or infectious disease; it is
a bacterial or pus disease empirically
'given' the well as a preventive and the
sick as a curative treatment. To vaccinose
is to introduce a blood-infection where none
exists lest one might develop or be 'caught'
or 'carried'; or, to cause a blood-infection
where one already exists in the hope that
the inoculated poison, virus, vaccine or
morbific bacteria may antagonize the body-
poisons or conquer the live germs.

Health is more priceless even than free-
dom. There is no despot like sickness. You
may make this world "safe for democracy,"
but this world will not be safe to live in as
long as from the cradle to the grave people


are made victims of the prevailing loath-
some inoculations with vaccines and bac-
teria. This is the most vitally important
subject before the American people to-day,
barring not even world peace.

The layman has a better intuitive grasp
of truth than the professional. The
"learned" have acquired erudition, but have
lost intuition. The sense of the Common
People is the keystone of Philosophy, the
first premise of "First Principles" and of
all correct conclusions. When the "laity,"
speaking collectively, voice an opinion their
judgment is always right. Witness: The
three Headlights of Civilization, Wilson,
Clemenceau and Lloyd George, attending
to the Commonpeoples' Business Overthere.

The common people are always right
when they voice an opinion. For genera-
tions they have endured the vaccinating
atrocity in comparative silence, helpless to
help themselves against the governmentally
enforced will of the medical profession.
But they are on the eve of voicing their
opinion, for the doctors are giving them
nightmares with their Bacteria-or-Siberia
for you and your children.

Mother-intuition is unerring. One must
be a mother to understand her agonizing
anguish at the prospect of having to infect
her child's blood with the putrid stuff vac-
vines are made of!


Vaccinopathy is the last of a trio of
world fanaticisms that have created all
hells on earth. Humanity has endured the
oft-recurring atrocities of religious and po-
litical fanaticisms. Every land is soaked to
bedrock with the blood of millions upon
millions of their victims. And all cemeteries
are pretty well glutted with the victims of
discarded medical delusions, but this gener-
ation is face to face with a medical fanati-
cism that in destructive power will out-
match the religious and political. The
"objective" of vaccinopaths is sufficiently
apparent to the student of eugenics to force
upon him the conviction that if allowed full
sway vaccinopathy will retard and defeat
evolution of mankind. There can be no
survival of the fittest when the fittest are
perpetually made unfit through vaccinosis.

This government is democratic in re-
ligious and political * matters, but it is
medico-autocratic in health matters. Re-
ligious fanatics have had their innings, and
the world peace conference bids fair to keep
political fanatics under government control.
Thus endeth the two world fanaticisms that
have devastated the earth and slaughtered
peoples. But in the turmoil a third world
fanaticism has acquired ravaging powers.
The United States government does not
merely sanction vaccinopathy but it allows
doctors to enforce it by military and civic
edict. If this generation fails in its duty to


crush disease-breeding vaccinopathy then
let the coming generation prepare for a
worse catadlysm of disease frightfulness
than humanity has ever experienced. For
it's plain to be seen that the drift of the
vaccinopaths is to cow-pox and bacterialize
humanity annually, semi-annually and

I have the highest personal regards for
my good friend, Dr. W. A. Evans, who
writes up "How To Keep Well" for the
Chicago Tribune. Were Dr. Evans not
wedded to his medical idols his eminence
and attainments would make of him an
ardent Autologist. Back of Dr. Evans' re-
nown is the responsibility, authority and
wide circulation of the Tribune. How many
will heed Dr. Evans' tip is hard to say, but
the intent is there just the same that all
his readers, as well as others, ought to fol-
low his lead. An "ought to", with the
medical profession, pretty soon becomes
tantamount to you must.

In a reply to "J. M. C." (Chicago Trib-
une, Friday, Jan. 17, 1919) Dr. Evans says:
"I intend to be vaccinated with Rosenow
(vaccine) about every two months this
winter." The force of this subtle argu-
ment and example in favor of vaccination
and self-vaccinosis is incalculable and
will inoculate the minds of tens of thou-
sands with the superstitious belief that be-
ing vaccinated with "Rosenow" every two


months is a pretty sure preventive of in-
fluenza and pneumonia. And yet, Dr.
Evans knows, as a leading Fellow and
Propagandist of the American Medical
Association and Member of the "Illinois In-
fluenza Commission" that the following ap-
peared editorially in the Oct. 26 (1918)
number of the Journal of the American
Medical Association:

"Unfortunately we as yet have no specific vac-
cines for its prevention (influenza). Such is the
fact, all claims and propagandist statements in the
newspapers and elsewhere to the contrary notwith-
standing. ... It appears that vaccines of this
nature (Rosenow) are in extensive use, but we have
no evidence that any benefit will be derived from
them. How slender the basis for this anti-influenzal
vaccination when it is considered that the real nature
of influenza is still unknown!"

This is quite as denunciatory of Dr.
Evans' prescription of the Rosenow "patent
vaccine" as are Dr. Evans' remarks about
"patent medicine."

One might well ask, Is it more ethical
for Dr. Evans to advertise a patent vaccine
than to advertise a patent medicine?

Truth alone is ethical—and shall make
you free, was said by the most ethical
Leader of mankind.

Dr. Evans' intended prescription is
meant to promote the deadliest, most in-
famous kind of vaccine fetishism—on the
altar of which medicine has immolated
more victims than the Turks have Armen-


ians. Dr. Evans is a member of the "Illinois
Influenza Commission,"—a Rosenow propa-
gandist organization.

Ca. louche —as our boys learned to say
in France.

Am I impugning Dr. Evans' motives?
Oh, no; he is sincere; that's the trouble!
For, a sincere medical delusion is an obses-
sion curable only by a St. Patrick! So, if
the people don't smother medicine's latest
brat, vaccinopathy, let them prepare for
compulsory periodical and perpetual blood-
infection with scores of disgusting pus and
bacterial cultures, as well as smallpox vac-

Perhaps the reading of my letter to
President Wilson made some active im-
pression on Dr. Franklin Martin, for, in
the November (1918) number of the
Red Cross Magazine, Dr. Martin tells us
that "the healthy soldier is given, first of
all, a balanced ration, moderate in meat
or eggs or cheese, and generous in vege-
tables, milk, greens and fruits." But, it so
happens that in the February 15, 1919,
number of the Journal of the American
Medical Association one reads the following
official statements by Dr. C. F. Brown,
Major, Dr. F. W. Balfrey, Major, and Dr.
Leonard Hart, Captain, Camp Greene,
Charlotte, N. C. "Few green vegetables
were used in camp; as the histories will
show, most of the men did not have fresh


vegetables." This refers to an epidemic of
typhoid fever at Camp Greene. It is a direct
contradiction of Dr. Martin's claim, and it
is official. Here is another from Camp
Wads worth: "A great many times meals
are served consisting of nothing but beans,
bread, potatoes and coffee. Maybe once
a week or ten days, stewed tomatoes would
be served at the noon or evening meal."

Aside from refuting Dr. Martin's state-
ment that the soldiers were given "a bal-
anced ration, generous in vegetables, greens
and fruits", the facts go to show the cor-
rectness of my contention that the actual
cause of and blame for the horrible havoc
played by the Flu was the 'dioxidosis' diet
dished out to the soldiers and adopted by
the American people, as well as the world
at large, during the war. But I want to use
the facts brought out by the Medical Offi-
cers, at Camp Greene, also as evidence that
even the much vaunted typhoid-vaccine-
immunity is a baneful delusion, and that
typhoid fever will appear and reappear no
matter how often the soldier or person is
vaccinated if the diet is acid-forming. The
three medical officers, whose names appear
above, in their report of the occurrence of
an epidemic of typhoid at Camp Greene,
say: "It was found, as shown by the his-
tories, that all had had the regular prophy-
lactic injections within a year at proper in-
tervals, as attested both by the soldiers'


statements and by their service records.
The fact that these soldiers had received
their preventive inoculations at different
times and at different camps, together with
the known care with which the Army vac-
cine is prepared, renders it unlikely that the
failure of immunity was due to failure to
receive the standard vaccine in standard
doses." But, Dr. Evans comes to the vac-
cinopaths' rescue by telling his readers that
"the explanation given was that the infec-
tion, instead of being of the mild type prev-
alent in this country for twenty years, was
severe and the dose of poison received by
the sick was massive." There you are, the
'immunized' men contracted typhoid —
therefore the type of infection must have
been more severe than in twenty years and
the dose of the poison must have been mas-
sive. Where is the proof? The only proof
is the usual slam of vaccinopaths worded
as follows by Dr. Evans (Tribune, March
4, 1919): "The man who still opposes it
(vaccination) is either crazy, a fool or a

knave..... The results of an experiment

involving 20,000,000 men and lasting four
years cannot be set aside because of the
howl of some sect who make their living out
of human ills." But, now, really, who are
the "some sect who make their living out of
human ills" if not the vaccinopaths who
make their living by making well people ill
and sick people iller with cow-pox and vac-
cines? 145


Authorized by Joint Resolution of the General Assembly,
of June 14, 1911, Pamphlet Laws, 940."

When it seemed likely that my vol-
unteer letter to President Wilson would fail
in its immediate mission, I mailed a copy
to two hundred of my friends, requesting
their help and influence, among others to
Mr. Henry C. Lippincott of Philadelphia,
who, thereupon, was good enough to mail
me a pamphlet entitled "The Pennsylvania
State Vaccination Commission," he being
one of the Dissenting Commissioners. Had
I been fortunate enough to see a copy of
this report, I would have incorporated its
findings in my letter to President Wilson.

Of the seven Members of this Commis-
sion, three dissented from the favorable
recommendations of the other four.

The following lines are taken from the
"Dissenting Report of Henry C. Lippincott,

"Physicians continually assert that they alone
are competent to judge of methods of treatment of
disease, and that laymen should accept and be bound
by the evidence furnished by medical experts and
the opinions which they deduce therefrom. If this
claim were admitted to be true, the ordinary layman
would still be confronted with the problem of de-


termining who of the physicians are experts, since
it often has been found, and especially so in the
course of the vaccination inquiry, that alleged experts
are arrayed on both sides of the proposition, each
class apparently of equal experience, attainment and
professional standing. It is known, however, that
old methods give way to new, and that upon the
authority of physicians themselves, the practice of
medicine has been almost wholly revolutionized
within the last twenty-five years, and that the pro-
fession as a whole sanctions its present methods and
acclaims them as nearly perfect, with the same as-
sertive confidence which prevailed respecting the
now discarded practices of former days. Under these
circumstances the writer may be pardoned for sug-
gesting that the problems associated with smallpox
and other diseases have been approached from the
wrong angle. Smallpox is derivatively a filth disease
and the prevention of it would seem to be obviously
associated with the removal of its causes. In the
opinion of the writer smallpox cannot be eliminated
by the introduction of a virus derived or taken from
the suppurating sores or vesicles of calves into which
the virus of smallpox has been previously introduced.
The open road which leads to prevention appears
to a layman to be the creation of those conditions
which will not engender and encourage the disease
itself. February 3, 1913."

The following excerpts are from the
"Dissenting Report of John Pitcairn, Com-
missioner." (It is appalling to human in-
telligence that Mr. Pitcairn's report failed
to turn the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
against vaccination.)

"We find in the following Final Report of the
British Royal Commission the following admissions:
'It is not open to doubt that there have been cases


in which injury and death have resulted from vac-

"That the risks of vaccination have not dimin-
ished since the Royal Commission made its Report
in 1896, is evident from the Reports of the Registrar
General for the years 1900 to 1910 inclusive, show-
ing that the death rate of vaccination was actually
greater than the death rate from smallpox.

"We find that in England and Wales from 1881
to 1907 inclusive, the Registrar reported 1,108
deaths from vaccination. We wish to emphasize
the fact that these 1,108 deaths were all admitted by
vaccinists themselves to have been due to vaccina-
tion, and that the reports took no account of that
greater number of deaths from vaccination which
officially were ascribed to other causes. In regard to
this, Professor Alfred Russel Wallace, after the
most careful investigation, declared that in England
and Wales alone vaccination was the probable cause
of 10,000 deaths every year—deaths by five diseases
of the most terrible and disgusting character, induced
by the vaccine virus."

(Let me remark that vaccinopaths have
a stock-in-trade retort for this which acts
as a befuddling argument to some minds.
It is this rejoiner: Is humanity going to give
up electricity and aviating because acci-
dents happen? This sort of vicious argu-
ment "takes" on some people as does small-
pox virus. But where is the similitude be-
tween electricity or aviating and cowpox?)

"But, it may be asked, If all this is true, why
does vaccination continue? The answer is that it
continues because it is enforced by law. Take away
legal compulsion, and vaccination would not long
survive. In all modern history no other medical


operation has ever been legally enforced. But vac-
cination needed enforcement. Without compulsion
it could never have survived, for from the very day
of its introduction it has been strenuously opposed
both by laymen and by members of the medical pro-
fession. Eminent physicians, it is true, have supported
it; but other eminent physicians and also renowned
bacteriologists and statisticians have condemned it
as productive of the gravest injuries.

"What Is Vaccination? Put the question to a
number of physicians, and observe the conflicting
replies. Not all would agree with Webster's defini-
tion that it is inoculation with cowpox, for the
modern American school of vaccinators now holds
that it is inoculation with smallpox modified by the
cow! Vaccination today is not what it was yesterday,
and still less what it was in Jenner's day. Indeed,
one of the most conspicuous features of the practice
has been its constant shiftiness."

(Then, Mr. Pitcairn's Report shows
that the doctors' "Immunity Theory is a
Pure Hypothesis", and it exposes their
habit of "Juggling with Statistics".)

"The blood is the life-giving stream on which
all the fortunes of the body depend. Maintain its
purity and the body will be in health. Defile it and
the body will be diseased. This proposition is axi-
omatic and needs no demonstration. Yet vaccination
involves a denial of it. The vaccinator would im-
prove on the blood formed in the laboratory of Na-
ture. He would perfect it by admixture with diseased
pus! For the support of a position so contrary to
the instincts of reason a large burden of positive
proof is imperative. And what proof has been given?
Constant shifting of theory and practice; broken
down claims of immunity; discredited statistics, and
a virus the mystery of which is equalled only by its
danger. While the enlightened nations of Europe are


turning against vaccination, Dr. Welch (William M.)
and his associates are endeavoring to fasten it for-
ever upon the children of the Commonwealth of

"The statistical data laid before the Commis-
sion and found in the accepted and official history
of the subject prove conclusively that while small-
pox declined with the abandonment of smallpox in-
oculation, the disease afterwards steadily increased
in all civilized countries where vaccination was sys-
tematically practiced and enforced; and that after
seventy years of vaccination there came the great,
world-wide smallpox epidemic of 1872, the worst
epidemic ever recorded in history, causing a vast
destruction of human beings all over the world, not-
withstanding the long-continued prevalence of the
practice of vaccination.

"That the vaccine virus now used is the actual
implantation of human smallpox itself into the popu-
lation is conclusively shown by the testimony of
nearly all the pro-vaccination witnesses that appeared
before the Commission. [In answer to a direct ques-
tion, Dr. Welch answered: "I think vaccinia is true
variola" (smallpox.)]

"Dr. Samuel G. Dixon, Health Commissioner
of Pennsylvania, in an address before a Commission
of the General Assembly of Pennsylvania, on March
5, 1907, said 'Japan, the most progressive country
on the face of the globe today, has a most stringent,
compulsory vaccination law, which calls for the per-
formance of vaccination, first, within the first ten
months of life; secondly, at the sixth year; and
thirdly, at the tenth year'. Dr. Dixon, in the same
address, held forth this stringent vaccination and
revaccination law of Japan as indicating the plain
path of duty that should be followed by the Legis-
lature of Pennsylvania, confident that such a
stringent compulsory vaccination law would protect


a nation or community from smallpox epidemics.
And yet, in less than one year after Dr. Dixon had
used Japan as such an effective argument to show
how an empire could be saved from smallpox by a
compulsory vaccination law, Japan had a most

severe epidemic.......Thus we find that Japan is

the most thoroughly vaccinated country on earth,
and yet we find her afflicted with epidemic after
epidemic from 1886 to 1908. During the period of
1886-1908, there occurred in Japan, as officially re-
ported, 288,799 cases of smallpox, with 77,415
deaths, a death rate of over 26 per cent., which rate
is far in excess of the death rate for the insanitary
and unvaccinated England of over a hundred years

"These official statistics show that smallpox
epidemics progressively increased in Japan as the
compulsory vaccination law was more and more

enforced.......If it were possible for vaccination,

under the most modern methods, by its enforcement
to protect any nation from smallpox, it should have
been Japan, especially as the vaccinations were en-
forced with thorough-going government insistence;
and yet, as the vaccinations and revaccinations went
on, the epidemics increased in frequency and viru-

(Mr. Pitcairn, then, gives the official figures and
dates to show that "not only did vaccination fail
to prevent the disease, but probably actually intensi-
fied it"; and, also draws attention to the "coincidental
increase in Japan of other diseases, as vaccination
was enforced", specifically mentioning diphtheria,
scarlet fever and tuberculosis.)

"There is absolutely no explanation possible
for the disastrous results of smallpox in Japan ex-
cept the plain and obvious one that vaccination does
not protect from smallpox, even when administered
under the most improved scientific regulations.


"It is shown from the experience of England,
India, Germany, and other countries, that vaccina-
tion has not been efficacious in the prevention of
smallpox; that where smallpox has decreased it has
been due to improved sanitation; and that, in Eng-
land, as a consequence of the Report made by a
British Royal Commission sitting for seven years,
compulsory vaccination has been practically aban-

"The dangers, injuries and deaths following and
caused by vaccination that have hitherto been spoken
of in this Report, are only those officially reported
or proven, but the countless numbers of persons
who are diseased by vaccination, whose cases do
not get into official reports, are still more impressive.
The infliction of such known and positive diseases
as vaccine virus has been shown to produce, together
with the unknown dangers admittedly connected
with vaccination, take away every justification for
any compulsory law for forcing it upon anyone,
under any circumstances. Instead of compulsion for
its enforcement, the conditions suggest its positive
prohibition by the Legislature."

But, medical fanaticism won and the
doctors go merrily on enforcing smallpox
vaccination, in Pennsylvania as elsewhere
in this enlightened country!

What are the mothers' feelings about
vaccination? The untrammeled opinion
and intuitive feelings of mothers are tersely
expressed in a letter which I have just re-

"Copy of your 'Volunteer-Letter to President
Wilson' has been received. I hope you will succeed
in getting your wholesome ideas substituted for the
vile methods now in operation. I hate vaccination
and bacteria inoculations. The oldest two of our


three children are in school having entered upon
certificates of "evidence of vaccination". It was use-
less to protest here, for the Medical Authorities are
absolute, so I followed the suggestion of our good

Dr. —------. (I wonder whether you knew him. He

was a friend and admirer of your friend, Elbert Hub-
bard.) Dr.---------was an ardent anti-vaccinist, and

confirmed my innate hatred of the vile practice by
scientific proof. If once I get the third child into
school without an open rupture I shall not care.
Too many have tried to oppose the existing condi-
tion and failed. I vowed (quietly) I'd rather see my
children dead than have them vaccinated."

Vaccinopaths would call this mother a
criminal woman because she has the innate
horror of all mothers of having the God-
given, pure blood of her children denied
with the loathsome pus of smallpox and
other bacterial pus-cultures! Fie on vaccin-
opaths! Shame on us who cringe and hesi-
tate to call a halt!

Autologically considered, the eye is no different
than other organs of the body. The same chemical
substances in the blood that are inimical to the func-
tion of other organs are equally inimical to the func-
tion of the eye; but being an outside organ it is
subjected to far more and worse abuses and drains
than other organs. Hence it fags out and fails earlier
in life. Glasses do not prevent nor cure the evil.
Like crutches, they encourage it. I have elucidated
this vital subject in a little book called "Eye Truths,"
which is one of the set of the three little books titled
"Guide to Autology"—and all mailed to you for 25

While the prevention and cure of eye-strain, defec-
tive and failing sight and other afflictions of the eyes


should depend essentially on the person living
autologically and using the eyes autologically, the fact
remains that people haven't been and are not doing
that. Therefore, I have originated a treatment for
the eyes and sight which is consistent with Autology.
The preparation is called "Eyecream."

Eyecream has been proved very helpful for: weak,
dim, aching, watery, strained, blurred, short-sighted,
far-sighted, astigmatic, ailing and failing eyes or
sight, films, floating spots, granulated lids, pterygium,
eye-headache, and many other symptoms of Eye-
strain, toning up eye-muscles and nerves and restoring
clearness of vision, getting rid of glasses or dispensing
with their need. Even in such cases as are called
Glaucoma, Opacities, Cataracts, etc., the EYE-
CREAM TREATMENT is well worth a trial, as
it positively can do no harm, but has done great good
—particularly in conjunction with Autology and

Doctor Moras has written a Cornmonsense book
on Autology, and by so doing, placed the Standard of
the Creed of Health further to the front than any other
man who has lived for a thousand years.—ELBERT

Dr. Moras has written a book that every man,
woman and child owes it to his intelligence to read
and study. It is called "Autology and Autopathy,"
which, being liberally translated, may be construed,
"He That Knows Himself May Cure Himself." While
it is a "medical" book in the common acceptance of
the term, there isn't a word about medicines in the
entire work. But there is more hard common sense,
more information concerning the care of the body in
health and disease, more advice about diet for brain,
nerve and body-building than in the entire libraries
of the world besides. Ethically and professionally,


the author of this really remarkable book stands high,
but the contents of the book are such as to place him
high above his fellows, and it will stand as a monu-
ment to him after his professional record is forgotten.
The book is worth $500.00 to any man who cares for
his own physical welfare or the health of wife and
babies.—The Dental Summary, Vol. 31, No. 5, May,

AUTOLOGY has been given scientific
recognition by the Lexicographers of Har-

to ripen into action by the aid of the peo-

ease, as well as in health, and against govern-

To meet the demand for a wide distribution of
these wholesome ideas, advanced and affirmed in my
booklet, "Volunteer-Letter to President Wilson and
Vaccinopathy," copies will be sent at much less than
printers' cost: One copy, 3c; twelve, 25c; fifty,
$1.00. Stamps accepted. Address, E. R. Moras,
