I wish to tell you the good results

Kilmer's Swamp-Root. About eleven
years ago I had a severe attack of La
Grippe and was confined to my bed
about eight weeks under the doctor's
care. I-e pronounce'd my case kidney
trouble and rheumatism and not re
ceiving the results from th& doctor's
treatment I should have received, I
decided to try Swmp-Root. After tak
ing several bottles of Swam:,-Root I
was able to get uip and attenud to my
work. About a year later my husband
. was affected with a severe attack of
kidney trouble and (loctored for some
time with the doctors and received no
benefit. Knowing of th good I had
received he decided to try Swamp
Root. His condition was A uclh that he

Go'rornment Fund Enriched by $80,000
Anonymous Donation From Penitent
Washington, March 9.-A $30,000
contiribution to the treasuiw's !con
science fund, the largest ever ro
ceived, came by today's mail in a
registered package mailed yesterday
morning in New York,
Under separate cover came a let
ter unsigned, dated Philadelphia but
mailed in New York, which amnounced
the sending of the $30,0Q0 and ex
plained that the sender had restored
to the government $80,000 in all.
The money came in a strong linen
envelope and was wrapped in- thick
brown paper. ' There were 85 $100
bills, 21 $500 bills and 11' $1,000 bills.
Most of them were gold certillcates.'
The conscience fund on March 1 had
reached a total of $159,933. The larg
est previous contribution was one of
$18,000, the sender of which admitted
that he had been guilty of customs
frauds. The letter that accomifanied
today's contrtbution read as follows:
"In a Separate package I am send
ing you $30,000 to be added to the
consciice fund. This amount makes
a sum aggregating $80,000 which I
have sent the United Sta'tes, or four
times the amount which I stole years
ago. I have hesitated about sending
all this money because I think it does
not really belong to the government,
but conscience has given me no rest
until I have consummated the four
fold return like the publican of old.
May every thief understand the awful
ness of the sin of stealing is the in
core wish of a penitent.
"Let no one claim any of this
amount on any pretext."

can Fleet. Not for "Selection".
\Vashington, March G.-'hreo dread
noughts and four battlecruisers added
to the American fleet, built and au
thorized, would make it the equal in
fighting strength of the present Ger
man lieet, Admilral' Fletcher, coml
mander of the Atlantic fleet; declared
today before the house naval commit
tee. While Germany has seven bat
tlecruisers and the United States none,
the admiral said tile 35 knot craft
proposed by the navy \department
would be so much superior to.anything
now afloat that four of them. possibly
three, would more than offset the sev
en German boats.
With the present fleet of 42 battle
ships of all types, three additional
dreadnoughts and seven battlecruisers,
Admiral Fletcher thought "we could
reasonably expect to make a good de
fense, although not an absolute one,"
of both coasts against any combina
tion of two enemy powers that did not
include Great Britain.
The admiral said lie and a majority
of the higher officers of the navy dis
approved of the personnel board's pro
posal to substitute promotion by se
lection for the seniority system. le
said that if the president were author
ized to transfer 4 pert cent. of ' the
captains, commanders and lieutenant
commanders to the reserve list, em
ploying them in consular work abroad,
as Instructors in military schools or
on other work for the government,
the way for promotion of elicient of
fliers wonild be opened without add!
tional expense. The present system of
selection for high commands and bu
reau heads, lie said, provided a way
of putting the right man in the right
Admiral Fletcher thought the train
ing of all naval ofllicers was so nearly
identical that to make selection among
lie ollicers in any grade of those qual
tfIled for promotion, as proposed, would
be a difficult task. There was little
to choose among 1J0 per cent of the
men in any grade, lie added; alfeady
being required to be experts in many
subjects, such as seamanship, gunnery
and engineering and to have in addi
tion a knowledge of international law
beyond the average of a lawyer. A
natural process, lie explained, they
now silecialized along the lines to
which they felt the most attraction
and were appointed to posts that
would get the best results for the navy
from that study.
