Bryan Down For Secretary of
State; List is Regarded as
elect Wilson has said that he will not
announce the personnel of his cabinet
much before March 1, it. is believed
here in Washington that he has al
most, if not fully, determined who his
advisers will be. It cqmes from a
source exceedingly close to Mr. Wil
aon that the following are most likely
to be chosen.
Secretary of state, William J. Bryan,
Secretary of the treasury, Henry
Morgenthau, New York.
Secretary of war, Representative
Mitehell Palmer, Pennsylvania.
Secretary of the navy, Harry St.
Deorge Tucker, Virginia.
Attorney-general, Wililam F. Mc-
Combs, New York, or W. A. Glasgow,
Postmaster-general, Josephus Dan
ielß, North Carolina.
Secretary of the interior, ex-Gover
nor Osborn, Wyoming.
Secretary of agriculture, Represen
tative Burleson, Texas.
Secretary of commerce and labor,
Representative Redfield, New York.
This list is subject to change, but is
regarded as substantially correct so
far as offers of places in the cabinet
are concerned. Whether all of the
men will accept is problematical.
Turks. Delay . Peace
London. —Turkey is playing the old
game of delay and has caused a fur
ther postponement of the oft-delayed
peace conference, which adjourned to
Monday after a brief and fruitless
session. It is evident the Turkish del
egates are trying to gain the right to
provision Adrianople by consenting
to include Greece in the conference.
22 LOST WITH STEAMER
Men, Once Ashore, Compelled to Re-
embark on Vessel
St. Johns, N. F. —Twenty-two of the
27 members of the crew of the Fur
ness line steamier Florence, from Hali
fax, N. S., for St. John, lost their lives
in the wreck of the vessel on the
ledges west of St. Shotts in a north
west, gale. Exhausted survivors who
reached land in a boat brought the
news to Trepassy. The steamer car
ried no passengers.
£aptain Barr, of the steamer, and
all his men reached shore after the
vessel struck, but the lofty, inacces
sible cliffs of St. Shotts prevented
their escape. The big tide, backed up
by the northwest gale, made it impos
sible to remain there and all hands
were obliged to put back to the ship,
which was pounding heavily.
Heifner King's Second Choice
Portland. —Judge Will R. King, who
would like to be secretary of the in
terior in President Wilson's cabinet,
will be pleased to see the job go to
Charles G. Heifner of Washington it
it fails to come his own way. He says
Heifner is his second choice, despite
the movement that is under way in
behalf of another Oregon man, Joseph
YAQUIS TAKE TOWN

El Paso, Tex —Yaqui Indians, aftei

Scenes of terrible slaughter fol
lowed, only a few escaping to carry
the tale to the outside world. The
Indians retreated to the mountains,
carrying the young women with them.
San Marcial is the center of the
Sonora coal district, a little more
than 50 miles southeast of Hennosillo.
This is the first time so far as known
here where Yaquis successfully as
saulted so large a town.
The Indians are said to be using
military tactics acquired during two
years of training in Madero's forces
to advantage, gathering force until
they have practically what could be
termed an army. All are armed with
high-power rifles secured during the

If a community can't have a
"good" road it should have the
best road possible. Anything is
better than a "bad" road.
The beneficent effects of good
roads flow to the city and the
hamlet as well as to the farmer.
They walk hand in hand in com
munity of interest, and surely it
is a picture beautiful to look up
on and sound at the core.
Good roads are indispensable
to our growth and progress, and
we must not falter or wait to
provide for them.
SYSTEMATIC TEACHING OF
HYGIENE IS NECESSARY
Individual Attention to Child's Habits
Will Teach Cleanliness.
Systematic instruction in the princi
ples of hygiene is necessary to keep
pupils from becoming lost in the mul
titude of dqjails. This instruction
should be founded on a solid knowl
edge of the structure and functions of
the different organs of the body and of
the principles governing metabolism
and microbic infection. As long as the
people of countries like the United
States persistently follow hygienic fads
and fail to discriminate between ar
rant quacks and reputable medical
practitioners it is an exceedingly short
sighted practicality that desires to ex
clude from our school courses in hy
giene those fundamentals of anatomy,
physiology and bacteriology which
throw the broad guiding lines through
the maze of hygienic practice.
Individual attention should be given
to the hygienic habits of the child.
Toothbrush clubs, fresh air clubs and
other organized hygienic efforts are
very valuable in fixing correct living
habits. Much can be done to develop
a right attitude toward hygienic ques
tions and to fix the habit of properly
regulating local environment by good
hygienic conditions in the schoolroom
and in the home.
The causes of sickness and the meth
od of preventing it should taught
in spite of the objections of those who
insist that it is wrong to instill into the
childish mind ideas of disease. It is not
the teaching of hygiene in schools, but
the presence of illness and death in the
homes, that gives sensitive children
morbid ideas of disease and death.—
From Address by Professor John W.
Ritchie at Hygiene Congress.
HOME TRADE NOTES.
Would you hinder the further
concentration of wealth in great
cities and all the resultant evils
you will find that the simple
principle of patronizing home in
stitutions instead of foreign ones
will work wonders.
Just so long as the merchants
of the country insist on carrying
on business in the manner that
their fathers did twenty years
ago just so long will the cata
logue houses continue to in
crease their patronage.
ATTRACT YOUR CUSTOMERS.
Keep the Dollars at Home by Proper
Display of Goods.
The way to keep the boys and girls
at home is to make home attractive to
them. The way to keep dollars at
home is to make home attractive to
the dollars. There is no other way.
Our local merchants should make
their trade attractive. This means that
they should play up their goods, just
as a newspaper plays up a story.
Goods can be played up in many ways.
Advertising in the local paper and dis
playing in the store window are two
good ways. Another good way is to
make the store attractive inside and
Another is to convince customers
that they are getting honest values.
Still another is to have the thing the
customer wants, make him feel that
you are tryirife to serve him and ac
commodate him and not merely trying
to benefit yourself. Yet another and
most important of all is to organize
for the betterment of the community,
arouse the public spirit and local pride
and educate the people in the inestima
ble benefit to everybody of building up
their own town and their own neigh
A Home Trade Song.
Your support you should give
To the place where you live,
And you ought to help the old town grow.
'Tis the place you should love
Every other place above.
Which is why we would remark as we go:
Home trade! Home trade!
It's 'way ahead of roam trade.
So kindly keep your dollars In the town.
Spend them, lend them,
But never, never send them
Around the world to wander up and down.
Though the town be but small.
Not a big burg at all,
'Tis the place where all your Interests are
And you'll be very wise
And your stock it will rise
If you'll paste this little chorus In your
Home trade! Home trade!
It's 'way ahead of roam trade
go kindly cut the cataloguers out.
Chase them, erase them
And never try to trace them,
But plant your dollar* here at home to
