J >Vas Speaking to Soldiers at the
Plattsburg, X. Y., Aug. 25.?Theo|
dore Roosevelt in an address tonight
at the military instruction camp here,
declared that for thirteen months the
United States had "played an ignoble
part among the nations" in tr at it had
j "tamely submitted to seeing the weak,
j whom we had covenanted to protect,
' wronged," and "had seen our own men,
I women and children murdered on the
high seas without action on oar part."
The former president condemned
ti e government for having "not taken
the smallest step in the way of* preparedness
to^defend our own rights,"
Germany, he condemned as "utterly
brutal and ruthless in its disregard of
international morality ana aeciarea
that it "would be a base abandonment
of morality" for American manufacturers
of munitions of war to refuse to
make shipments "for the use of the
armies that are striving to restore Belgium
to its own people."
Munition makers who refused to
make such shipments should be put,
he said, on a "roll of dishonor." He
added that they should be encouraged
"so that we may be able to hold our
own when the hour of peril comes to
r-5 inNour turn."
THE DEAD BEAT
Is the Great Part of the Hig^i Cost yof
You can ngure tne larin ana you
can figure the trust and you can figure
the combination?but you don't get
the right thing on the cost of high
living unless you take in the dead beat
and t? e delivery system.

his books and you will see that from
ten to twenty per cent is loss on the
dead beat who never pays a bill. He
gets away with the goods somehow.
The (.Merchant's association has him
marked; the grocer knows fce never
pays?but somehow he finally gets on
the books and before he is refused further
credit he owes anywhere from J
ten to a hundred dollars. He is going J
to pay next week. He has all the de- j
luxe hard luck stories ever dreamed i
of by mortal man. He )*:as had sickness.
He is just going to get a job; j
he is going to pay the first of the
month and wants a little further ac- j
commodation and the merchant gives |
up?and it means the man who pays j
cash also pays for the dead beat?or, j
the mere ant goes out of business, i
The dead beat means ten per cent or 1
more on your grocer's bill. It means 1

And then comes the delivery busi- j
ness. The grocer must keep two or J
three delivery wagons. It is either i
horse feed or gasoline and a driver, j
And Mrs. Whatsername rushes to ti.e!
'phone and wants a box of matches
sent right out?and the five-cent box i
of matches is delivered and it costs
twenty-five cents to deliver it?but
Whatsername is a good customer and
it wouldn't do to turn her down. Then
there is a grand rush about ten in ti':e
morning and extra delivery clerks are
called in?and then there is a grand
rush the rest of the day?but the expense
goes on. The merchant must
charge this to some account. He must j

pay this terrible toll, and you can safely
figure that the dead beat and the
delivery system costs you $25 on every
$100 worth of goods you consume?
and if that isn't a pretty toll what is?
But these figures can be verified. Often
, the merchant doesn't know it. Hardly
ever makes more than a living and
sometimes he doesn't make tftat in the
grocery business. He has another ten
per cent loss on green goods and
fruits and things like that?and by
the time the ultimate consumer gets
his food he has paid the higb prices
which modern civilization and modern
Sinfp thp ar.auisition of Alaska by
the United States, the waters in and
contiguous to the territory have yielded
fishery products having a first value
of more than a quarter of a billion
dollars. Far exceeding all tl_e other
products in importance are tne salmon, |
after which comes the fur seal, the j
set otter, the halibut and the cod.

DRINK PLENTY OF WATER.
Physicians Declare a Gallon a Day
Will Insure Good
Kansas City Star.
"A gallon a day will keep the doctor
That is what a physician of this i
city said when asked if it was a good
thing to drink much water.
Doctors disagreed about whether it
is good to drink water wit)': meals, the
majority believing that food should not <
be washed down with liquids, but;'
should be thoroughly chewed and mix- i
ed with saliva, which is an aid to di
gestion. But several doctors wf:o were
asked about it yesterday asserted that i
it was good to drink even as much as
a quart of water with meals.
All of the seven doctors who were in- '
terviewed about the benefits of water :
drinking agreed that the copious <
drinking of water was a preventive 1
of disease, and they had Known many j 1
cases in whicf: health was restored by 1
the drinking of water in large quanti- <
ties. One doctor advocated the drink- .
ing of as much as three gallons of <
water a day in very warm weather, (
reducing the amount when the weather
is cooler, but never drinking .less than 1
a gallon a day. 1
"Wi;.y," said this physician, "two- c
thirds of the weight of the body is i
water. In a very warm day in August j
an average man who is at work will t
perspire from two to six quarts of i
water a day. Where is it all coming t
from if you don't drink it? Many \
poisons generated by the body are ex
uded through the pores .of the skin
in perspiration. Many perrons ti ink t
they are not perspiring unless they j
can see beads of water on the skin, j
But we perspire at all times, walking (
and sleeping, and we do not see it be- \
cause it evaporates immediately. It i
is almost impossible to drink too much ]
Another docior said: "I saw a short <
article in the Star the other evening ' (
quoting an eminent medical authority j <
as savine that all srirls and women 1 1
who wished to have a good complexion '
should drink two quarts of water a
day. I would double that and advise
them to drink four quarts a day. Give
the boy plenty of pure water, inside !
and outside, a gallon a day inside, a j
thorough bathing of the whole body at!
least once a day, fresh air all the time, j
nig!':t and day, and plenty of exercise, 1
preferably by outdoor walking, and j
you can't very well De sick, ir every ?
one would do that one-half the doctors j
would have to seek some other business.
If every woman would do that ^
the rouge and complexion powder fac- ^
tories would shut down. There is noth- .
ing so good as plenty of water drunk t
every day for the complexion."
A physician said: "I am not claim
ing that the drinking of plenty of wa- j
ter is a preventive of all diseases; that
would be misleading and silly, but I
will say this: I have cured several I
bad/cases of rheumatism and many
cases of stomach ailments with water
alone. In those cases the patients
were in the fcabit of drinking very little
water. I prescribed a quar?t of water
before breakfast each morniifrg and
-11 fViA /lev
a ganon ui unn. tuiuuguuui. tm,
and a quart on going to bed at night.
It worked a cure in each case.
"I say this, most emphatically, that i ^
a half-gallon or a gallon of water a
day will help wash out the toxic
poisons that are found in the body, and
will tend to keep a person in good f
health and help him resist disease.
"There is constantly being accumuo
lated in the body not only waste mat- j
ter, resulting from chemical changes
taking place in the upkeep of the vital
energy, but also the blood takes up
toxic poisons from the intestines. Unless
those things are thrown off by ^
the lungs, skin, kidneys, etc., we be- ^
:ome lazy, dyspeptic and uric acid will
accumulate and cause rheumatism,
kidney disorder and other organic disturbances.
Now such conditions ^
would be mucih less likely to ensue g
were the simple precaution taken of
Jrinking a pint of water often through- ,
aut the day.
"Especially is this true of persons i

WOULD AVOID CLASH
Apparently Willieimstrasse is Awakening
to Grarity of Relations
Berlin, Aug. 25 (via London, Aug.
26).?If the commander of a German
submarine exceeded his instructions in
sinking the steamer Arabic the German
government will give full satisfaction
to the United States, G:ancel
lor von Bethmann-Hollweg informed
the Associated Press correspondent ia
an interview this evening. v
The imperial chancellor made the
following statement of Germany's position:
"As long as the circumstances sur
rounding tne sinKing or tne Araoic
have not been fully cleared up it is
impossible for me to make a definite
statement. Thus far we do not even
know wT:ether the sinking of the ship
cvas caused by a mine or by a torpedo
ired from a German submarine, nor
3o we know in this latter case the
Arabic herself may not have by her
ictions, perhaps, justified proceedings
>f the commander of-the submarines.
"Only after all these circumstances
lave been cleared up will it be possible
to say whether tfce commander of
)ne of our submarines went beyond his
nstructions,. in which case the imperial
government would noj. hesitate
;o give such complete satisfaction to
he United States as would conform to
he friendly relations existing between
Berlin, Aug. 25 (via London).?While

conferred a half hour with
