a very small vote. In his E

aster of the central department 1y
f the United States Army, sent ag'
letter to the army authorities in
t Washington strongly recom- pr
lending the creation of a Quart- Tb
rmaster Reserve Corps, to be chi
Dmposed of men of high execu- ev
ve ability in the different lines the
f business throughout the coun- ab
y. Men thus selected would be exl
m missioned by the president of
s majors, captains and lieuten- A
nts in the reserve corps, and ar
rould be subject to call for mil- ne
nary duty in -the quartermaster th
Drps in time of war. Pr
Congress has enacted Col. Mc- ly
arthy's recommendation into We
tw and many of the brightest do
nd keenest business men of the do

No army can operate success

Colonel McCarthy is a veteran

astead of musing upon the past,
d the newly created Quarter

2ate product of his shrewd brain. thi
There remains yet another th<

new Quartermaster General of

The Woman's Tonic
Cardui helps women in time

So, if you feel discouraged,

ORKNEY ISLANDS IN HISTORY
Christian of Denmark Put Them Up
for Security of Dowry When His
Daughter Married James III.
No other territory in the British em
pire has a more tragic significance to
Englishmen today than the Orkney Is
lands, off whose shores the most dis
tinguished victim of the world war,
Earl Kitchener, lost his life when the
cruiser Hampshire was sunk.
These islands, 90 in number, of
which only 30 are inhabited, are sep
arated from the mainland of Scotland
by the Pentland Firth, from six and a
half to eight miles wide. They were
selected as England's North sea naval
base not only on account of their
proximity to the field of operations,
but on account of their semi-isolation
and the advantage of the superb har
bor of Stromness, in the largest island
of the group, Pomona, which has an
area of 200 square miles..
While the original inhabitants of
the Islands were Picts, whose round
towers .n' chambered mounds are
among the interesting ruins of this re
gion, the Norse pirates secured a
foothold here during the early centuries
of the Christian era, and carried on
their depredations against all naviga
tors of the North sea. In the last
quarter of the ninth century Harold
Haarfagr put an end to the rule of
the pirates, and added both the Ork
neys and the Shetland islands to Nor
way's domain. In 1468 the Orkneys
came under the sway of the Scottish
crown, Christian I of Denmark giving
them as securify for his daughter's
dowry when she became the bride
of James mI. As the dowry was never
paid the islands have remained a part
of Scotland's domain ever since.
The Orkneys, which are the Orcades
of classic literature, furnished the set
ting for many of the episodes In Sir
Walter Scott's novel, "The Pirate," the
character of that romance being John
Gow, the notorious frebbooter born in
Stromness and captured off the is
lands in 1725. Another literary as
sociation of the Orkneys and one of
especial interest to. Americans centers
in Shapinshay, the birthplace of Will
1am Irving, father of Washington Irv
The Medical Council, a medical
magazine of Philadelphia, in an article
by Dr. Basil A. Warren, who is in
charge of the United States govern
ment hospital at Leupp, Ariz., de
scribed some of the methods employed
by the Navajo Indians In the treat
ment of diseases. The Navajos have
a strong belief in demons or evil spir
its and think that when a body is bur
ied care miust be taken to cover
up all tracks of those who left the
grave so that the demons attending
the burial could not follow them to
their hogan-the hogan is the rudIe
hut of the Indians-and do them harm.
The chief measures used in treating
disease are singing, dancing and in
vocations. The singing idea is much
in favor and might perhaps be adopt
ed by civilization in some cases to the
exclusion of less palatable potions.
Certain songs are specific for certain
diseases, but the sonig to be effective
must be sung without a single error.
These songs are not to be sung by
quacks or irregulars, and to keep out
such practitioners the regular profes
sion employs a language which is not
understood by any but themselves, a -
dead language which the Indians be- .
