FEEDING MANY THOUSANDS OF TURKISH PRISONERS IS DRAIN ON ALLIES: MOS

Cettinge, Montenegro, Nov. 11. The
war with Turkey has brought to this
little country many problems, not, the
least of which Is the question of how
to teed thousands of Turktah prison
ers of war.
Montenegro, barren little kingdom
a few thousand square miles in ex
tent, has always been poor. The war
with Turkey has rapidly depleted her
magre resources. Her own soldiers
have to be armed and fed. That is
hard enough; but now she has thou
sands of war prisoners to care tor.
As might be supposed, the Turkish
prisoner get very little to eat, and
practically no medical attendance.
They must be content with a diet of
coarse bread and water. They say
they are used to starving, that while
they were In the Turkish army they
fared little better.
Grafting has been reduced to a fine
art by Turkish officials and funds sup
plied them for war supplies have gone
into their own pockets. If the stories
told by these Turk prisoners are true
the greed of the cultan's army officers
is in large measure responsible for the
weeknese of Turkish arms.
The accompanying picture was tak
en at Uodgoritza where 3,000 Turkish
prisoners were brought at one time
by the victorious Montenegrins.
Writing of the arrival of these prison
ers, an English woman correspond

PEPYS, THE DIARIST.

Lovers of Pepys often dispute over
the correct pronunciation of his name.
The form Peeps la the one that has
chief authority on its side, and it is
according to analogy In other like
spellings, such as Wemyss. pronounced
Weems. Peeps still holds good at
Cambridge and dates from Its bearer's
own time. It Is also retained by the
representatives of Samuel's sister, the
Pepys Cockerell family, who are heirs
to his fame and some of bis property.
The late Rev. J. W. Ebaworth, an In
defatigable collector and editor of bal
lads, adopts this pronunciation In hi
pleasing stanzas on "A Gossip at Dept

An Old Eastern Legend and Its Appll

This world we're living- In
Is mighty hard to beat.
Tou get a thorn with every rose,
But ain't the roses sweet?
There is an eastern legend that when
the beneficent Creator prepared the
earth for man, causing it to bring
forth herbs and trees pleasant to the
eye and good for food, each bearing
its seed within Itself for propagating
its kind, the rose bad no thorns and
the lilies, violets and other blossoming
plants were free from thistles, bram
bles and noxious weeds.
But the sons and daughter of men
in their greedy eagerness to gather the
flowers, each one selfishly striving to
secure a larger share than his fellow,
seemed likely to despoil the earth of
Its beauty and leave not even enough
blossoms to perfect their teed and per
petuate their species. So the kindly
All Father provided the roaea with
thorn for self protection and sent a
host of defender of the more tender
blossoms by causing thistles and briers
to spring up around them like wardens
of a castle or the bodyguard of a
queen. And thl is the reasou for the
thorns and brier nature's protection
against human greed.
The legend ha a wider application.
The roses typify the pleasures of life
and the thorn Its pain A life of
ease and pleasure was not only use

Even in its early stages Catarrh is a most distressing complaint,
known by its symptoms of stuffy tecling in the head and nose, roaring in
the ears, mucus in the throat, difficult breathing, etc. When the blood be
comes thoroughly polluted with catarrhal matter the inflammation extends
to the bronchial tubes, causing hoarseness and often an aggravating cough,
the stomach is affected, resulting in dyspepsia, loss of appetite, and grad
ually all the mucous membranes oi the body become
diseased. Catarrh is a deep-ceated blood disease
and must be treated constitutionally; it la beyond
the reach of local treatment. Oniy temporary relief
can ever be had from the use of sprays, washes, etc.
8. S. S. cures Catarrh by cleansing the blood of all
impure catarrhal mattet and at the same time build
ing up the entire system. It goes down into the
circulation and removes all impurities. Then aa
pure, nourishing blood circulates through the body,
the inflamed membranes heal, all discharges cease
and every symptom of Catarrh passes away. Dont neglect Catarrh; cure
