A strong, healthy, active constitu

of the liver. The famous little piJIs
known as De Witt's Little Early Ilisers
not only cleanse the sys-tem, but they
strengthen the action of the liver and
rebuild the tissues supporting that or

are absolutely certain to produce re

SHORTER TENURE OF OFFICE
Caamumaa Marsh Believes it Wo aid Ira
Prove Serrlee of Government Employes.
Representative' Marsh, of this con
gressional district, has been inter
viewed at Washington and expressed
his views concerning the tenure of
office-of government -employes. Said
"JTiave never believed in life tenure
of office fcr government employes.
Congress should authorize a term of
office for employes, and in most in
stances prohibit reappointment.- Of
course, there are some cases where
the cervices of a man are so valuable
the government would- be a distinct
loser by dispensing with the services
of employes in such instances. If the
civil service laws should be changed
so as to provide for a term of office
of four years, the government would
be constantly securing the services
of younger persons, new blood would
be injected into the veins of the gov-
ernmcnt, and the problem of disposi
tion of old and useless clerks would
"There are many excellent reasons
why congress should provide for a
term of office. As a general proposi
tion, it is a bad thing for clerks to be
come fixtures in the government em
ploy. They do not progress as rap
idly in, the government as they do in
private, enterprises, and many, believ
ing they are permanent fixtures, be
come extravagant and do not save
any of their salaries, whereas, if they
know that their term of office was
limited, thej' would make provision
fcr a rainy day.
"The adoption of such a scheme
would not mean a return to the spoils
system, hut at the same time it would
give many persons who dejsire to en
ter the government service tin oppor
tunity to do so."

Island arsenal by Col. S. E. Blunt, the
commandant there, with illustrations
loaned by IS. F. Tillinghast, of Daven

most interestingly of his subject,
taking the reader through the history
of the arsenal from its incipieney to
the present, showing the work that
has been done there, the great service
afforded during the Spanish-American
war emergency, and the possibilities
in the manufacture of gun carriages,
small arms nnd army equipment.

UNDER "GRAD" COACH PLAN
The University of Illinois has for
mally adopted the graduate coaching
system for football. Four Illinois
graduates who won renown on the
gridiron were chosen to inaugurate
the system. They are Fred Lowenthal
of Chicago, the noted center rush; J.
M. Lindgren of Mcline. ex-captain and
tackle; A. K. Hall of Danville, former
captain and half back; and Clyde M.
Mathews, the crack 1900 quarter back.
Athletic Direct or Huff will be head
coach, but his office will be more of
an advisory nature. Even if the ex
periment should not lie successful
next fall the system will be retained.
The graduate coaches will be paid for
their serv: n t in time it is hoped
to develo - :em similar to that
in vogue in trie big eastern universi
ties. Lowenthal and Lindgren will
coach the forwards, while Hall and
Mathews will have charge of the back
field. Refore a big game other promi
nent "grads" may be asked to appear.
