United States Navy Fourth.
The United States, on the basis
of figures of the office of naval in
telligence of July 1, 1914-, was third
anions the navies of the world in
respect to tonnage. When the ves
sels then building are completed it
will be fourth.
On the basis of the July 1 figures
Great Britain and Germany led the
United States, but if vessels build
ing were completed, France also
would be ahead. The data came out
today when the new naval year
book was issued from the office of
tho Senate Naval Committee. J. B.
Knight, secretary of the committee,
is the author.
The July 1 figures give the fol
lowing as the relative order of
Great Britain 2,157,850
United State? 765,188
When the veosels then in the
builder's hands are commissioned
the tonnage table will show:
Great Britain 2,714,106
United States 894,889
The figures refute assertions that
this country stands second in naval
strength. They are lacking, how
ever, in the important feature that
they shed no light on the naval
progress of the belligerents since
the war in Europe opened. It is
well known that England and Ger
many have been increasing their
naval power at feverish speed.

A FAIR WARNIN?.
One That Should be Heeded by
Frequently the first sign of kid
ney trouble is a slight ache or pain
in the loins. Neglect of this warn
ing makes the way e^asy for more
?erious troubles-dropsy, gravel,
Bright's disease. 'Tis well to pay
attention to the first sign. Weak
kidneys generally trow weaker and
delay is often dangerous. Residents
of this community place reliance in
Doan's kidney pills. This tested
remedy has been used in kidney
trouble over 50 years, is recom
mended all over the civilized world.

Airs. G T Padgett, Ed ge fi eld,
says: "My back ached and pained
all the time. In the morning when
I got up, I wa9 so sore and stiff
that I could bend over. I tired
easiiy and it was an effort for me
to do my housework. I also had
headaches and dizzy spells and my
sight blurred. I got Doan's kidney
pills at Penn & Holstein's drug
store and they relieved me from the
first. Whenever my back gives me
trouble now, I take Doan'? kidney
pills and they never fail to give me

Whitcomb Riley Said
When a man ain't got a cent, and he's
feeling kind o' blue
An' the ciuuus hang dark and heavy,
an' won't let the sunshine thru;
lt's a great thing, O my brethren, for
a teller just to lay
His han! upon your shoulder in a
friendly sort of way;
It maxes a man feel queerish, it makes
the tear drops start,
An' you sort o' feel a patter in the
region of your hear:;
You can't look up and meet his eyes;
you don't know what to say,
When his hand is on your shoulder in a
friendly sort of way;
O' the world's a aunous compound,
with its honey and its gall,
With its care and titter cresses, but
a good world af uer all;
An' a good God must have made it,
leastways that is what I say
When a hand is on my shoulder in a
friendly sort of way.

Keeping the Baby's Skin Healthy
Most persons recognize the value
of training when applied to the
child's voice, his fingers, his eyes,
his mind. But it is not so often
that thought is given to the train
ing of skin. And yet training of
the skin is more essential to health
than almost any other kind of body
For the skin is one of the chief
excretory organs. From its millions
of pores there constantly issues a
flow of perspiration laden with
poisonous wastes from the body.
Unless the activity of the sweat
glands be increased by heat or exer
cise the elimination is imperceptible,
but none the less constant. Under
ordinary conditions an adult secretes
about one quart of perspiration in
twenty-four hours. This dries upon
the skin-the moisture evaporates -
leaving the waste material in a sort
of film over the surface. If this is
not removed, as the process con
tinues the film thickens, and in a
short time undergoes further pro
cesses ol decomposition, developing
a fetid odor characteristic of an
The offense to the sense of smell
is, however, the lesser evil. The
unclean accumulation chokes the

and hinders their work. The foul
matter retained in contact with the
skin is more or less of it reabsorbed,
necessitating- a second elimination
of the poison. Under such condi
tions the skin loses its natural luster
In no way can the health of the
skin be preserved but by keeping it
clean, its pores unclogged and its
sweat glands active.
A daily cleansing of the entire
body surface is then by the very
nature of things most essential for
all individuals at all ages.
COLD BATHS AN AID TO
The daily bath, accompanied by
a brisk friction, best servos this pur
pose. Ordinarily the cool morning
bath taken at the begioning of the
day is for daily use preferable, be
cause it not only cleanses but invig
orates and stimulates to action all
the vital powers. Cold water hard

resistance; it also increases the abil
ity of the skin to reheat itself.

growing children. It encourages
