Manual School Students
ShourWhat They Learned
An Innovation marked the graduation
exercises of the Armstrong Manual
Training School In the Howard Thea
ter this afternoon. As a part of the
program the pupils In the different de
partments demonstrated their ability,
one boy turning out a cedar nut bowl
on a wood turning lathe, a girl cooking
potatoes on a gas range, another girl
cutting and basting a skirt with the aid
of a sewing machine, and a third girl

to move them from their fertile lands

to the Salt river, beyond the Roosevelt
The case of the Apaches is one of a
dozen which the committee -will take
up in Its investigation of the Indian
Kureau of the Interior Department. The
result of the investigation is in doubt
as yet, as the committee has not delved
far enough to reach any formal con
clusion. It is probable, however, a stiff
fight will be made against the moving
or the Molave Apaches. These Indians
have had for the past eight years 25.000
fertile acres on the VeTdi river. They
have this land In a fine state of fertility
Ordered to Move.
A year ago. the Indian Office essayed
to movo them to 840 acres on the Salt
river. The Indians declined to move.
Testimony before the committee tended
to show that the Indians in their pres
ent location ware practically self-supporting,
and more than all they wero
satisfied and happy. Several of the In
dians testified that when the Govern
ment abandoned the dam which waters
their farm land tho Indians built and
maintained a dam themselves. Still the
Indian agents were not satisfied. If
the testimony of the Indians is to be
believed, the agents sought to forco
them bodilv off their lands. If tho In
dians were moved to the Salt river
country, they would again become pub
lic charges, and an appropriation would
be necessary to start ihem in their new
location. The mysterv of the whole
question seems to center on the dis
covery of lust who would benefit by the
change, and who would get the Indians'
present fertila lands.
They Were Afraid.
To show the feeling of the Indian to
ward the agents, who govern their af
fairs, the Apaches, not only descend
ants of warriors, but warriors them-t-elves,
quailed and quaked before the
committee when. they were told their
testimony would be published for the
agents to see.
Yesterday, when the Indians had com
pleted their testimony before the com

as witnesses. Though some of them
could scarcely talk English, they were

Urges Clerks to Try
. Co-operative Buying
Members of the Civil Service Council,
an organization of Government em
ployes, today expressed the opinion
that co-operative buying among em
ployes will be extended as a result of
the address made by Willett M. Hayes,
Assistant Secretary of Agriculture, at a
meeting of the council at the chemistry
building yesterday afternoon.
Mr. Hays designato co-operation in
buying necessities of life as the safety
valve against the high cost of living. He
said it had proved satisfactory In the
Wtst. notably In Minnesota, and had also
been satisfactory here, where It la
done to some extent by Government em
ployes. He urged employes to live in
suburban communities and purchase
foods and clothing by groups direct
C. F. Staples, one of the railroad com
missioners of Minnesota, and R. 8.
Moore, financial secretary of the coun
cil, indorsed Mr. Hays' suggestions.
There Is no reason why you should
not feel just as brisk and vigorous in
the summer as at any other time.
Yet most people do not and they be
lieve that it Is Just the natural effect
of warm weather. It 1b not It is
because the digestion Is weak and
the system haB been allowed to run
down and no effort made to keep It
In good running order. When the
hot weather comes be very careful
what you eat so as not to upset your
stomach and take
Duffy s Pure Malt Whiskey
It is a gentle and invigorating
stimulant and tonic that influences
for good every important organ of
the body and brings restful sleep.
It Is a form of food already digested,
and when taken Just before a meal
stimulates the mucous surfaces and
little glands of the stomach to a
healthy action, causing a sufficient
flow of the gastric Juice to digest
the food, and it promotes perfect
assimilation. It also excites the
flow of saliva for the digestion of
starchy food, preventing fermenta
tion in the stomach and bowels.
