"I was astonished at the flavor and taste. It entirely took the place of coffee, and to my very great satisfac tion, t began to sleep peacefully and sweetly. My nerves improved, and I wish I could wean every man. woman and child from the unwholesome drag drink coffee. "People do not really appreciate or realize what a powerful drug it is and what terrible effect it has on the hu man system. If they did, hardly a pound of coffee .would be sold.

CATASTROPHE STUNS NATION Disaster Covers Wide Area Which Extends Over Central and Southern Territory. All of the central part of Italy was devastated by a terrific earthquake vhose tremors began on the after noon of January 13 and continued intermittently until the night of Jan- -uary 14. About 40,000 persons were killed and more than 200,000 were hurt. Some towns were buried, others were levelled. Many historic buildings and numerous art treas ures were destroyed. Uncountable property damage was wrought. So great was the force of the quake than practically all lines of communication to the stricken dis tricts were cut News of the cal amityexcept brief bulletins which only hinted at the magnitude of the disaster did not reach the outside world for three days. Then It was learned that the catastrophe was havoc beyond description. In the wrecked communities the dead lay everywhere. Cries of the wounded pinned under debris har ried the would-be rescuers, who had no implements for releasing them. Refugees began to suffer from cold and hunger. Then came disease. The situation was extremely critical before fifty thousand soldiers and the Italian Red Cross could afford relief. Motor cars offered about the only means of transportation, for tracks had been twisted and railway bridges wrecked by the quake. King Victor Emmanuel led the organiza tion of rescue and remained on the scene of trouble several days. The Italian government declined help from other nations President Wil son offered aid at once and made an initial appropriation of one mil lion dollars for relief of the stricken people. What caused the quake is mere speculation. One eminent scientist and geologist believes it may have been caused by vibrations from heavy cannonading in Europe. Santa Barbara, Calif., felt heavy quake shocks at the time the Italian dis aster occurred. The quake played fantastic tricks fit for the gods. One huge mountain was split from top to bottom.. At another place a large, deep lake was formed in what had been a high tableland. Rome, Jan. 19. Detailed reports re ceived in the capital regarding Italy's stupendous earthquake disaster . in- j crease rather than diminish the appall- ing list of dead and the enormous prop erty loss. The Messaggero, after mak ing a careful computation of all the figures it has been able to gather from the districts and villages hitherto iso lated, announces that the number of dead and injured in the Abruzzi alone is thirty thousand, without including the Sora district. Die of Cold- and Hunger. San Atolio has 200 dead and 500 In jured; Morino, 1,500 dead; Canistro, 600 injured; Cervavo, 300 victims; Borgo fifty dead, and Valleroveto. 1,800. In Civitelhi Roveto almost the entire population escaped because they were working in the field 'when the shock occurred. Frantic appeals for help have been received from Petrellallri, 3,500 feet above sea level on Mount Arango, eight miles from Tagliacozzo. The vil lage t8 almost destroyed and the survivors say they are perishing of cold and hunger. Earth Opened Up. In the highway near Ortucchio the earth was opened, causing an immense pit filled with water, the depth of which is unknown. The terrific force of the earthquake cracked the mountains near LucCy Huge pieces or rock, each of which weighed several tons, rolled down the hillside, burying the cottages of peas ants, killing cattle and obstructing the roads. Mount Pizsodeta, 6,450 feet high, between Balsorano and Rocaeer ro, was cut into two parts by an im mense fissure which is visible at a great distance. Many Alive Under Debris. Avezzano, Italy, Jan. 19. Twelve thousand bodies, it is estimated serai- DID BIG GUNS CAUSE QUAKE? . New York. Jan. 19 The continual concussions caused by the explosion of projectiles and the discharge of heavy guns in the European war are probably the underlying causes of the recent earthquake catastrophe in Italy, according to Dr. Alois Kaehlin. for merly professor of chemistry at the University of Halle and now consult ing chemist for av large New Jersey corporation. "Concussions of any kind." he aald officially, are buried under the fallen walls of this earthquake rained town. Seiche rs believe there are still many living beneath the tons of debris and desperate efforts are be!ng made to rescue them. Most of the irregular masses of stone have not been touched, with pick or shovel. This is the fault of no one, because it would take a. thousand workmen several days to turn over and excavate what has been slowly built up . in centuries. Capt. . Pisani Vettori, who has charge of the relief work here, estimates there are fifteen thousand dead in Avezza.no, Chappelle, Magliano and the villages in this im mediate district. Up to midnight Saturday only five hundred bodies had been taken from the ruins. These were laid out in open spaces all over the city. Supplies now are pouring into Avez zano. An 8-day clock hanging on the only fragment of a wall which remains standing is still striking the hours. A dozen bodies ready for burial are lying in the square of Tortonia. In the midst of this desolation, which reminded correspondents who had. been at the battle front of Sois sons after one hundred days' bombard ment by German and French artillery, are campflres around which parties of survivors are cooking army rations which have been distributed to them. They sit shivering In the sharp winter air on this high tableland of the Apennines. "In this square," Captain Vettori said, "I saw a father place the bodies of his wife, three sons and three daughters. I think that was the sad dest incident I ever have seen. One little boy stood beside the father as he arranged the bodies. The child seemed not to realize what had hap pened. This man, so terribly afflicted, stares vacantly at those who speak to him. He has not eaten for two days." Scores of survivors were half starv ing yesterday before food arrived from outside, although under the walls of Prince Tortoni's granary there were one hundred thousand bushels of wheat. The correspondent of the Associated Press, going about last night with two soldiers bearing torches, came across the bodies of a family of seven, father, mother and five children. There was a ghastly row of more than one hun dred lying near the splendid villa of Prince Tortonl, in which were found the bodies of thirty-two domestics and employees on his estate. Neither the prince nor any member of bis family was in the great country house which was destroyed. Bora, Italy, Jan. 19. Slight earth tremors have not ceased here and the local authorities declare not a single house in town is safe for occupancy. Captain Fusi, who is directingtbe work of rescue, is convinced more than one thousand victims are buried in the debris. Rescue work is progressing very slowly and there now is very little hope of finding persons alive, because in most cases bodies are buried be neath immense piles of masonry. The authorities are directing most of their attention to caring for the few persons who escaped death. The Red Cross has opened an emergency hospital where the less dangerously injured, are being cared for. Those more danger ously hurt are being taken to Caserta. A Cold Rain Falls, Too. The sufferings of the homeless popu lation have been intensified by a cold. drizzling rain which began early yes terday afternoon and continued stead ily. The people have been warned not to reoccupy the houses which remain standing until the buildings have been carefully inspected. The nights have been spent in the open air, where the only heat has been provided by wood fires- kindled on the ground. Huts are being erected along the' roadside and in fields to shelter the women and children. Food is be ing distributed by communal officials. The -King Works Tirelessly. When King Victor Emmanuel visit ed Sora he personally promised the children who had been made orphans by the earthquake that they would be cared for. The sovereign was sur rounded constantly by throngs 6f citi zens but when a detachment of carl bineers attempted to disperse the crowd his majesty- ordered the Officer in command to employ his men else where, saying the king needed no pro tection. Although rain was falling. King Victor Emmanuel Insisted upon continuing upon his inspection of the afflicted towns and villages, motoring from one place to another. Many Appeals for Food. The Duke of the Abruzzi is continu ing the distribution of relief in the earthquake zone. He goes from place to place without escort, refusing even to allow his friends to know where he Is. In many places he organized the rescue work and left, the survivors having no idea who he was. The gov ernment has appropriated one million dollars to relieve suflVcing. . today, "produce waves similar to those created by wireless apparatus.

LULL IN CAUCASUS FIGHTING Turkish Army Preparing for Defense Against Russian Advance At tempt to Burn Soissons Dropped 20 Bombs. London,. Jan. 21. The battles both in the East and the West now consist largely of artillery engagements, with occasionally attacks by the Infantry. The French claim to have made fur ther progress in the region of Pont-a-Mousson, to which military men at tach more importance. .It is predicted that the Germans will launch a heavy offensive, as they did with great suc cess at Soissons, to put a stop to the French advance towards the roads leading to Metz. The only other point of importance disclosed by the official statements is an intimation in the Berlin communi cation that the Germans have under taken a counter offensive in Alsace. In Poland and Western Galicia the Germans and Austrians continue iso lated attacks against the Russian lines which, according to the Russian re port, have been repulsed with heavy losses to the attacking forces. A Lull in the Caucasus. As for the Turkish Caucasian army, it is believed it will not retire to Erze- rum, but will be put in readiness for defense against the Russians when they decide to advance. It is consid ered likely, however, that the Russians will be content for the present with the successes already gained in this region and turn their attention to the Turkish forces in Azerbajan before in vading Turkey. Discuss Air Raid. London, Jan. 21. The German air ships for they are thus described by the German official report which paid a 4-hour visit to the coast towns of Norfolk last night, dropped twenty or more bombs. The raiders missiles killed four persons, injured ten or more others and did considerable damage to property. What composed the raiding' fleet is still a matter of discussion. Major Astley, who commands the National Reserve at King's Lynn, says that as the result of information received by him, he will report officially that one of the latest Zeppelin dirigibles took part. Some persons declare they saw huge airships, but others assert only aeroplanes and seaplanes participated. Try to Burn Soissons. Paris,; Jan. 21. A correspondent who hae been allowed in and out of Soissons returned last night. He said the town was being bombarded inter mittently yesterday afternoon, the city hall and barracks rather than the ca thedral seeming to be the principal mark. Several streets were burning. Enraged, apparently, at their inability to occupy Soissons, the Germans seem bent on its destruction. IMPROVED TRADE OUTLOOK European War Brings First Real Balance in Favor of the United States. Chicago, Jan. 21. For the first time In history the United States is "exper iencing the sensation of a real trade balance" in its favor. Dr. Edward E. Pratt, chief of the federal bureau of foreign and domestic commerce, told the Illinois Bankers' Association at its annual dinner here tonight. "As a result of the developments abroad in the last six months,'' Doctor Pratt said, "we have turned the corner and are facing a new era of business expansion in this country an era which has made the term 'home mar ket' obsolete and archaic and put in its place the unfamiliar term of 'world market.'" v He explained that while the export excess in favor of the United States had ranged annually fourteen years from 250 million dollars to 650 mil lions, "invisible factors" had made that only an apparent favorable bal ance.

New York, Jan. 19. Drawing a vivid picture of labor being slowly crushed beneath the steadily increasing power of concentrated wealth, Samuel Unter myer, formerly . attorney for the "money trust" investigating commit tee, today called upon the government federal commission on industrial rela tions to aid the workers. "The trades unions and workers' organizations are graually- growing weaker," he said. "To such an extent has wealth been concentrated in a few hands, that capital is now arrayed against labor in a bitter, but neverthe less unequal struggle. "We need laws to protect the worker and to curb the power of the corpora tions. We need government insurance against sickness, unemployment and accidents. We need a whole compre hensive system of reform, and I be lieve the creation of this commission has launched that movement. Labor hasn't had a square deal. We're a gen eration behind Europe In looking after the man who toils." Mr. Untermyer was the first witness in the commission's inquiry into the concentration of wealth and influence on public thought and public policies, with specific reference to the Rocke feller, Sage and other big "founda tions." . - Mr. Untermyer attributed the pres ent industrial unrest to "absentee own ership," and the accumulation of top heavy fortunes. v REFUSES TO LET DACIA GO England Will Regard German Ship Transferred to American Registry As Lawful Prize. London, Jan. 20. The British gov ernment has not yet delivered to the American ambassador its response to the request from Washington that the former Hamburg-American line steam er Dacia, which has been transferred to American register, be permitted to make a special trip with cotton to Ger many without regarding the voyage as establishing a precedent concerning the right of German ships interned in the United States to resume trade with Germany after being brought under the American flag. It is believed that the question will come up for consid eration at tomorrow's cabinet meeting. It may be stated authoritatively, however, that if the Dacia sails, her cargo will be treated by the British au thorities in such a manner that the owners of the . cotton will have no cause for complaint. The disposition of the ship, however, is regarded as an entirely different matter.- It is gen erally believed that if the Dacia sails for either a German or Dutch port she will be taken before a prize court. VETERAN REGAINS HIS SIGHT inmate of Kansas Soldiers' Home Sees Sisters for First Time In Fifty-one Years. , Chicago, Jan. 19. Edward : Lewey, a veteran of the Civil war saw his three sisters yesterday for the first time since he marched away with his regiment in 1863 to join the men at the front. Blind for nine years, Lewey, who was thought to have been killed in battle, recently was found by his sis ters in a soldiers' home in Kansas. They brought him here to a specialist, who successfully removed a growth from the right eye. An operation, which the specialists believe, will re store the sight to the left eye, will be performed in the spring. SHOT "HIS" GIRL AT CHURCH Then Rejected Suitor at Peoria, III., Fled from Scene and Took His Own Life. . " Peoria, 111.. Jan. 18. Just after the opening prayer at the evening services In the Church of God, Frederick C. Erdman opened a side door and fired a revolver shot at.his former sweetheart, Hattie Gauwitz, inflicting fatal wounds. The entire" congregation was imme diately thrown into a panic and there was a wild'rush for the. doors. Persons in the audience fell to the floor and were trampled on. Erdman ran to the railroad yards, boarded a freight train and made his way to the south end of the city where he took poison, then turned the revolver on himself. He died within two hours. Miss Gauwitz, 27 years old, is the daughter of a wealthy retired farmer living on the Galena Road in the sum mer resort district overlooking the Illi nois Valley.
