From a distance it cannot help be
ing appreciated that Italy is playing
an important part in the war across
the water. It has taken some time to
prepare but it has gotten down to
business in a manner which is bound
to depress the central powers as
much as it elates the entente.
Italy has made excellent progress
In this last offensive in ' smashing
through the mountain defenses of
Austria. Even Monte; San Gabriele
over which there has been such a
bloody contest, has fallen to the de
termined troops under General Ca
dorna thus opening the way to great
er progress, not only for the capture
of Trieste. Palo and Fiume, but for
the opening of a campaign directed
towards the Austrian capital.
The claim is made that Italy has a
sufficient army to carry out such oper
ations, and that in spite of the leng
battle frent and the millions of men
under arms it has not as yet calUd
many of its classes, but while its man
power Is strong it is seriously lack
ing in guns, coal and airplanes. Thus
while the allies have been . sending
much aid In that direction the oppor
tunlty for contributing much more to
a war theater which is bound to have
important effects upon the early end
ing of the war is large. If the most
vulnerable point in the central pow
ers has been located the most should
be made of it, and the quicker the as
sistance can be given the greater are
the prospects for an early decisive
victory. If Austria can be brought to
its knees Germany will get a death
It is quite natural that there should
be widespread ' interest in the plans
which are beine; made to take care qf
the soldiers and sailors in case of in
juries and their dependents in case of
death as the result of the war. There
has been experience enough with war
lo know that both can be anticipated.
In the past this phase of the matter
has been looked after through a pen
sion system, but now it is planned to
get this like many other things dawn
to a scientific basis, that all may be
treated fairly and so far as possible
The war Insurance bill is the out
lome of deep thought upon this mat
ter. It has been handled with th,3
same care, though possibly not along
me same lines, that the big insurance
companies give to their business, and
how thoroughly It is approved and
how generally it is looked upon as
treating all concerned, the soldiers,
sailors and nation, fairly is displayed
by the unanimous vote when the bill
came up for action in the house.
It could hardly be expected that in
surance under such hazardous condi
tions could be secured for the sum of
18 a thousand a year, but there are
obligations which the government
must assume In the matter and such
is to be taken care of by the govern
ment providing the difference. Thus
Hiere will be large expenditures called
'or by the country, as under the pen
sion plan, but the schema set forth in
:he bill has the advantage of treating
ill alike, and it is but proper that it
Ihould receive general approval.
With the need that exists for more
rcssels and the inability in some
juarters to move - crops because ef
be lack of that kind of transport -ion
facilities, the large number of
eutral ships whiCh are lying in tha
harbors of this country, most of whlcn
are loaded with grain or other com
modities for delivery in countries ad
jacent to Germany, furnish t V prob
lem or this Ko'vernmeat to adjust as
fsoon as possible.
These ships have been loaded for a
long time, so long in tact that the
grain In their holds is said to be rot
ting. . They have not .sailed because
they have been refused the necessary
license, which under the new legisla
tion here must be secured for com
modities going to European neutrals
which have been using such supplies,
of their equivalent, for trade with
the enemy.
.With the expectation that the li
censes to s'ail will be obtained in time
those controlling the vessels have refused-
to unload their cargoes and put
the ships into other service for the
relief of the existing shortage. Bfftyta
to bring: about such a change has only
resulted in the positive declination to
oven remove the grain that it may' be
prevented from becoming a total loss.
What the next step to be taken by
this, country will'be. inasmuch as it
has- the authority to take pver such
vessels by paying for them, awaits
development, but there can. be little-
question as to the need for ships and
to the power which the government
possesses under the circumstances.

Called unquestionably because of
the attitude which has tbeen mani
fested by the mayor of Chicago, the
war mass meeting held in that city
with Elihu Root as the speaker was
t!mely and should be productive of
srood results. Mr. Root took occasion
to define the word . "traitor" and what
he had to say upon , the subject op
plied not solely to those who are work
ing there against the government in
the conduct of the war. but to those
in "Washington and elsewhere through

and goes .on discussing whether it

clares "After the decision in favor of
war, the country has ranged Itself,
and the only issue left for the indi
vidual citizen is whether he is for or
"against his Country."
Following that up and dealing with
the propagandists and obstructionists,
he pointedly remarks, "The men who
are speaking and writing and print
ing arguments against the war now
and against everything that is bein;
done to carry on the war, are render
ing more effective ssrvlcc to Germany

triumph of Germany and the humilla

This view is the only one that can
be taken under the circumstances and
it is one that should be taken to heart
by all those to whom it applies.
That Sweden begins to. realize the
seriousness of the situation into which
it. has been lad "by Germany' is indi
cated by the removal of one of the
secretaries - in the foreign office, by
the announcement, that the practice
of forwarding Germany's-, messages
has been stopped and will not be re
sumed and by the desire to maintain
the most friendly and cordial rela
tions with the .United States.
Its desire to straighten out the trou
ble and to respect the policy of neu
trality is indicated in all the state
ments which are being made by
Swedish officials, but it is difficult
to understand the explanation which
is given by Herman L.. F. Lagerchantz,
a former Swedish minister to Wash
ington, who when in admitting the
grave error that had been made in this
matter, said it was "the result of put
ting reliance upon Germany's good
faith, without the slightest idea that
German diplomats would lend them
selves to such abuses of a privilege
extended to them."
That is undoubtedly what hap
pened, but how Sweden could put
faith in Germany's conduct or how.it
could rely upon the diplomats of that
country respecting the privileges
which were allowed them, in view of
the manner in which that country and
its representatives have been conduct
ing themselves regarding the rest of
the . world, whether neutral or belliger
ent, is the surprising part of it. It
looks very much as if the gullibility of
Sweden had been taken advantage of
but it cannot claim in the future that It
has not had Its eyes opened, and that
friendship which it has been mani
festing towards Germany can be ex
pected to undergo a marked change.

To Keep Lemon Juice
SqueeM the juice into a china dish,
then strain it through a piece ofiiiius
lin so the least particle of pulp can
not go through. Fill some small bot
tles that are perfectly dry, with the
juice, leaving enough room for a spoon
lul of sweet oil, cork tightly and let
stand in a cool place.
For large bottles use more oil. When
you wish to use the juice, take a piece
of cotton, wind it around a skewer
and dip the oil -from the Jjuice. You
will find the juice as nice as when first
Home Mads Labels
Cut off the gummed edge of envelopes
that come with advertising and use for
labels. Stick them on canned fruit,
bundles and boxes. Also, the envel
opes are handy, cut in strips to wrap
.round small bundles of tickets, rib
bons and what not. Better than rub
ber bands, as they hold them firmly
and can be labelled.

Wedding Cake .
Xa matter hoW much in love with the
man of the hour the prospective bride
may be, she is never too full of senti
ment to ignore a new -idea m serving
the weddirtg cake. The woman who is
contemplating marriage in the very

they look like a layer cake. On ev
ery box there is a perky bow of ribbon.
The" ribbon can be chosen to fit in

is a pleasant change from the little
square boxes with which everyone is
The Weatherproof Coat
For the woman who must breast the
elements and travel under rain as well
as shine there were seen in the shops
some extremely smart models which
are known as the weatherproof walking
coats. These generally boast the big
collar that -will open or close at will
snd the large pockets and detachable
belt, and have the advantage of being
rainproof over the other co.ts that are
like them in appearance. They are
carried out in several materials and
are sure to prove popular.
Clothes are a necessity and the wise
woman will but not many but enough,
and economically as well. This year
the fashions are such that it is quite
possible to obtain garments that will
look fitting for several occasions. And
these combination styles in suits and
coats are the result of careful planning
and experience of the fashion makers
and ate a boon to thase of us who must
of necessity dress on a small income.
A Chemise Hint
If you are a lover of the empire ef-
lfect in chemises you will appreciate
tms way of obtaining it. Make your
chemise as usual, either the straight
kind in the envelope variety. Crochet
a neat little beading around the top
ana tnen maKe aoout twelve or four
teen inches of beading insertion to
match the edge. "
Sew this across the front of your
cnemise at the hlgn-waisted line and
run ribbon through It, tying In a bow
at the front and sewing the ends where
the insertion ends, just to the front of
the side, seams. You will have the
hlgh-waisted effect and a decorative
one as well.
Black and white costumes are
great vogue in Paris. Lining the sash
with white satin is strikingly chic.
Fashion is ever inconsistent. Along
with the new suits showing snugly fit
ting lines are shown topcoats in loose,
belted effect and full sleeves.-
A college frock is made of dark blue
silk crepe with a touch of embroidery
and self-covered buttons. - A white
satin hat trimmed with dark blue
band and ornament is worn.
Draperies grow more profuse. Many
skirts are draped in lines that are
quite unique. Paneled effects are very
strong in evening dresses. Sometimes
one frock, will boast of two. and then
again only one will be used either at
the front or back.
Stocks and jabots stand out promi
nently in collections of latest neck
wear. Chenille lends itself willingly and
satisfactorily to embroidery on suits,
blouses and frocks.
Gingham bloomers are frequently
made to wear under gingham dresses.
A novel scarf has little pockets at
the ends, into which the hands can be
thrust.- .
Wear a string of beads that tone with
or . contrast well with the summer
frocks. ' 1
There is little ground for the rumor
that we are going back to the tight
waist. ...
DolmaajSleeves '
The dolman sleeve in the new top
coats are their peculiar new style fea
ture. They are not exactly the dolman
shape of old-time wraps, but there is
much of the same peculiar, contour,
modernized. These sleeves start from
very large armholes, placed low in a
capelike grament. Large at the top,
they become much smaller. Sometimes
they have a - loose fur cuff, tometimes
one gathered with a sort of large ruf
fle below.
Mahogany and Walnut
Mahogany is beinsr made in so -browi
a tone, and the popular American wal
nut is frequently toned in so dull a
.brown, that it is being proved a diffi-
cut matter to tell tliem apart. In a
very expensive dining room suite the
two woods, mahogany and walnut, have
f ven been seen in combination, one of
the woods being used as a decorative'
embellishment on the second one. This,
cf course, was d'n so artistically th.it
the lavman would have to be told what
woods these were.
Furniture Cleaned
First blow the dust out of the ore
Vices with pair of bellows or a good
sized bellows or bicycle pump. This
will greatly assist in cleaning. Make
a suds by disso'ving ha'f a bar of
white soap in a gallon or more of water
and add naif a cupful of common salt. .
This will prevent the cane from turn
ing yellow. Apply the suds to the chair
with a scrubbing brush, first one side
and then the other, using plenty of wa
ter, so that the cane may be thorough
ly soaked.
Place it out of doors to dry In a
shady place. This will mrtke the cane
firm and tight and renew its elasticity
A round crochet hook of fairly good
size is a splendid substitute for a rib
bon runner. Be sure that the ribbon
pets a good hold on the hook so that
it will not slip off. Of course polish the
blunt end first through the casing cr
beading through which the ribbon is
to be run.
Before cross stitching rr whipping:
the rolled hem of a handkerchief pull
threads along each side. The line will
serve not only as a guide in rolling the
linen, but also as a guide in cross
stitching. ' After the handkerchief is
laundered the drawn thread will not
be visible.
A ouick way to do hemstitching is
to pull the threads from your materia!
in the usual way. Place the material
, on the sewing machine and stitch
through the center line, of pulled
threads. Slip the stitchinsr as dose to
one side ps possible. The efftvt will
be so satisfactory that one will not
be able to detect it from hand hemr
Novelties in Lapp Shades
While the simple shirred silk shade
and that of cretonne cannot be criticis
ed if they harmonizewith the furnish
ing scheme of a room, the'y are inclin
ed to become tiresome if one Jias them
in every room in the house. Thus new
lampshades are appearing every now
and then to vary the monotony.
Perhaps one of the prettiest styles is
the paper shade made perfectly plain
and round from a circular piece of
heavy Japanese paper or board. These
paper shades " are simply painted to
match the bowl or vase of the lamp
stand and are usually used with the
pottery base. Occasionally they appear
with a wooden standard and are in
good taste when thus used. Bratrs or

Island of Qusel
- The Xatianal Geographie Society
issues the . rbllowimr war cmnranhv
Kmiletln on Oesel. an island in the
Baltic where the Russians have an
aviation base which was recently
bombed by German airplanes:
"The island of Oesel lies like a
neat and above the Gulf of Riga, al
most campletely shutting it off from
the waters of the Baltic sea.- Togeth
er with the' smaller islands of Moon
and Rundo, (the latter the subject of
a recent - war geography bulletin.) it
forms the Oesel district of tne Russian
Baltic province of Livonia. It Is now
known as 'the Island of the Courland-
s and has an area nearly three
fourths as large as Long Island. X. Y.,
but with a population not exceeding
bo.wu most of wnom are Ksthonians.
"Arensburg. the capital, is practi
cally the only population center in the
island. It has some 5.000 inhabitants
engaged largely in trade-in train, po
tatoes, and whiskey and fish.
The town is situated one hundred
and six miles northwest of Riga. Tn
times of peace there is a bi-weeS!y
steamship service between the two cit
ies, the passage across the Gulf of Riga'
requiring about eight hours. Practi
cally the only- interesting building in
the town is the Old Bishop's Castle,
dating from the 14th century but still
well preserved, unless the bombs re
cently dropped by the German raiders
have demolished it.
"From May to August in ordinary
times Arensburg is visited by several
thousand- tourists from the mainland
who' come to enjoy the sea bathing and
the mud baths, wnich are supposed to
have special curative properties.
"Oesel began to figure in the his
tory of the Baltic farly in the 13th
century when Waldemar. king of the
Danes, took nossession of it and erect
ed a castle there. The stronghold was
soon destroyed by the Esthoninns. how
ever. In 1227 the Brethen of the
Sword introduced Christianity On the
island and its government was entrust
ed to a line of Bishops, the last of
whom, more than 300 years after the
Knights took possession. Sold thi ter
ditory to the rns. In 1645 the island
passed to the Swedes who held it until
t. wa"! incorporated in the kinwdom of
Russin during the first quarter of the
ISth century.
"The small sturdy horses of Oesel
like those of the Shetland islands, are
noted for their mettle and endurance."

could turn out, for his task is done
well and there are no return jobs.

that are our comrades in arms, through

branches are established in every city,
