tho war was the outcome of material am

Christianity have failed to soften tho
heartB of men and have not Inspired them
to other than material strivings.
Dr. Krauskopf spoke in part as fol
lows: "In all the official statements that tho
belligerent nations advance as Justifiable
causes for tho war there Is not a single

LONDON. Sept. 21.
What started this war In Europe?
Everybody knows that millions ot men
nro lined up to kill each other; that tho
civilization which Europe lias been slowly
building up since tho dark ages has been
thrown to the winds, and that the sit
uation Is too big to cither write or talk
about Intelligently. It will take 100 years
for history books to give the news.
The answer Is: One little lead bullet
from a revolver In tho hands of a Ser
vian high-school boy. And this bullet
probably would nover nave been fired If
an ordinary chauffeur had not lost his
way In a little town in Bosnia. One little
twist of a chauffeur's wrist, as he turned
nn automobile Into a side street, when ho
should havo remained on tho main roft;
ono little twitch of tho right index finger
on tho trigger of a revolver In the hands
of a high-school boy-they started this
war In Europe.
It's hard to find enough to say about
this one lead bullet. It went Into the

WOMEN ASK FOR BALLOT
Church Members May Be Ennobled
To Vote for Trustees.
Women members of the nrideiburg
Methodist Episcopal Church will be en
abled to vote for trustees of the church
If a petition presented to Court of Com-
mon Pleas No. 5 is granted.
The petitioners seek an amendment to
the charter striking out the word male
from the clause relating to the election
of trustees. It Is also provided In the
petition that meetings of the trustees be
held at the church and not at such
places as they may appoint It is further
suggested that a clause be Inserted em
powering the trustees to sell or mortgage
real estate of the corporation.
The Impression ..has gained urroncy,
becauso of the popularity of the auto
mobile, that carriages are 110 longer
manufactured In very great quantities.
Yet the committee on statistics at the
convention of the Carriage Builders'
National Association, which meets in
Atlantic City, N. J., September 2Sth to
October Id, will show that considerably
over ono million horse-drawn vehicles
were built In this country last year.
Large as Is this figure. It does not In
clude business, farm or trucking wagons,
but takes nccount only of suoli vehicles
as tho buggy, surrey, nnd other light
Statistics show that there were made
on an average of a million to a million
and a quarter horse-drawn spring ve
hicles each year for eight years prior to
January 1, 191b, and during the yenr
1913 tho number exceeded 1.200,000. These
figures, which are partly duo to tho in
crease In population, naturally Inspire
conlldence In the present and the futuro of
the carriage and wagon Industry.
It Is fulr to assume that tint vehicle
product of 1913 was sold for more than
JiiO.OOO.CHiO. A minimum of 3o,tn 1,1100 Is
Invested In carrlnge factories In this
country, to say nothing of the enormous
capital Involved In the wiigon business,
while the investment In manufacturing
establishments making materials and
parts exclusively for horse-drawn ve
hicles Is probably ns much more.
The coming Atlantic City convention
Is the 42d to be held by the vehicle men's
organization, which was Instituted In
1S72. making it one of the very oldest
trade bodies In America. Tho associa

The Carrlngo Uuilders' National Asso
elation has been favored In past years,
at their conventions with tho presence of
n number of prominent mon, who, al
though not In the vehicle business, never
theless were phased to address the car
riage builders on subjects of Interest to
them. Among. these men have been the
late President McKinley, lleneral Wil
liam Tecumbeh Sherman. Oliver Wen
dell Holmes, the poet, and others of
almost equal fame. Thi3 year, Hon.
John narrett, director of the Pan-Ameri
can I'nlon at Washington, und formerly
United States Minister to several South
American countries, will address the us
rsoclatlon. In connection with the convention there
will bo held an extensive exhibition of (ill
materials, parts ad machinery used In
vehicle building, which will bring to the
attention of the 120u delegates all that la
new In these lines.
There Is much room for optimism In
the carriage buslnesn and It will be a
contented and, enthusiastic gathering of
prosperous manufacturers that will crowl

WOMAN BEGS FOR TEETH

CHICAGO, 111., Sept. 2l.-Sotip as a
steady diet palls on Mrs. Minnie Wer
ner. A good, thick beefsteak, celery,
corn on tho cob and such substantial
viands would make a welcome change.
Mrs. , Werner's appetite Is all that she
could wish, and she makes a comfort
able living from her store at C103 South
Stato street; yet she has been oblged to
subsist on Invalid's diet for four months.
The secret Is that Mrs. Werner has no
teeth. She had teeth once, but tho
State's Attorney has them now as an
exhibit A against two men Under indict
ment for burglary. Mrs. Werner, how
over, would rather turn till the thieves
In Illinois loose than go without a real
meal much longer.
Tho teeth were stolen from Edward O.
Brown, of 610S South Stnte street, whore
Mrs. Werner left them to bo repaired.
Walter I'olaskl and Frank Duraskl were
arrested as tho burglars and the loot was
recovered. It was nil turned over to the
State's attorney, and yesterday tho men
were Indicted for burglary.
When Mrs. Werner learned of the In
dictment she went to Captain John
Smith, at Englfwoud station.
"I've been patient long enough," she
declared. "1 want my teeth, and I want
them before I stnrve to d-ath."
The Captain pondered.
"Will you promise to exhibit them at
the trial?" ho asked.
"I would promise anything to got my
teeth back." Mrs. Werner assured hltn.
"Then I will get them frim the State's
Attorney tomorrow.'' he said. Today
Mrs. Werner will dine.
WARDS OFF FALL COLDS
Life-giving Draughts of
Flush Lung Cells.
The Importance of deep breathing can
not possibly be overestimated Once tho
regular habit Is formed, the taking of
deep life-giving .draughts of air far Into
the lungs becomes automatic, and the
greatest benefit will accrue to the wise
person who forms this sensible habit.
Fresh air Hushes the lung cella Just
as water performs a like function ex
ternally. The poisonous gases which
linger aro driven out. and the blood
draws ita heat nnd life from a far greater
surface than Is available when the lungs
perform but half of their function.
Now In the falltlme colds and coughs
are generally rnnipant. But deep breath
ing will so fortify the syBtcm that those
ailments will meet with a resistance
which will effectually ward them off. Cul
tivate this habit then Immediately If ycu

by the German cavalry and set fire to.
It Is now a heap of ruins.
