Martha." said she, without any preparation. “I have a message to give you. My cousin Frederick begs to be remembered to you. He Went away the day before yesterday.” I felt the blood desert my cheeke. “Went away? Where? Is his regi ment moved?” “No. but he has taken a short leavs of absence, to hurry off to Berlin, where his mother la on her deathbed. Poor fellow, 1 am sorry for him, for 1 know he adores his mother." * Two days afterwards 1, received a letter in a hand 1 did not know, with the postmark of Berlin. Even before I saw the signature. I knew that the letter was TUling’s. It ran thus; .“8 Friedrlch-st.. March 80, 1868. 1 a. m. “Dear Countess —I must tell my grief to someone, but why to you? Have I any right to do ao?

A complete report of thd campaigns going on in a doeen Important port cities baa Just been submitted to Dr. Rupert Blue, sur geon-general., of < the United St alt public health service, Vho bellev . that If the work which has be*U started Is persisted In the United States will have little to fear from plague scares lb the future. Although seaport cities in all parts of the country have started active, campaigns of rat extermination in recent months. Surgeon-General Blue . says that a start In work of this kind, i important as it Is, means very little unless It is made a permanent fea ture of a city’s public health pro gram. In other words, “rout the rat” activities must be carried on as per sistently and continuously as “swat tbe fly" campaigns If a community is to be kept free from the disease which these pests carry and spread to places of human habitation. San Francisco, after several bubonic plague scares, has now the most thor oughly rat-proofed city in the United I States, and the head of the public health service believes that every port In the country which Is a point of plague Infection may do well by following after the California me tropolis. Among the cttlec the progress of whose work In rat extermination has Just been reported to Surgeon-General Blue are New York, Philadelphia, Bal timore. St Louis, Charleston. S. C.: Jacksonville. Galveston. Natches and Gulfport Miss.; Mobile. Ala., and Pensacola, Fla. None of these cities has had plague scares In Nsw Or leans this work has been going on very actively during the whole of the summer because of tha number of cases of bubonic plague which have been reported, and in recant years practically all of tha newt buildings put up in San Francisco are rat-proof ed In theft original construction. In New York city. Dr. Charles J. O'Connell, health officer of the port, has taken special precautions to pre vent the introduction of plague-in fested rata. The rodents are killed by fumigation of the ships and bac tertologlcally examined at the new laboratory recently established at tha place of quarantine. Surgeon-General Blue Is highly pleased with the fore alghtedneee of the public health au thorities of Philadelphia In planning an anti-rat campaign. At the requeat of the director of public health and charities an officer of the United States public health service has been tent to advise and assist the local au thorities and 12 inspectors to take part in the work have been appointed by the city from among medical stu dents In Philadelphia. The govern ment's health officers commend the work of the city In setting aside a special fund of 110.000 for emergency use In rat extermination and In offer ing a bounty of five cents for each rat which Is killed. Baltimore Is Included among the cities which the public health service report names as taking part In ao ttve "rout-the-rat" campaigns. The city health department Is trapping rats along the water front, and all rats captured are being examined for plague Infection at the city labora tory. The city health commission has requested the board of estimates to smploy permanently a city rat trap per. In St. Louis the city police have been utilised In making a house-to house Investigation In the river and freight-yard districts, and reporting to the ofty health department the premises found to be rat-infested Children Ory FOR FLETCHER’S CASTORIA THE DETROIT TIMES.

Except the anx iety which the illnesses of your child hood caused, and the torture when you were on campaign, you have giv en me none but happy feelings, and have helped me to bear every sadness which my lot has laid on me. 1 bless you for it, my child. And now anoth er attack of her pain came on. It waa heart-rending to see how she cried and groaned, how her features were distorted. Yes! Death Is a fearful, a oruel enemy; and the sight of this sgony called back to my recollection all the agonies which I had witnessed on battlefields and In the hospitals. When I think that we men sometime# hound each otbar on to death gra tuitously and cheerfully, that w# as pect youth in the fullneae of Its strength to offer itself willingly to this enemy, against whom ever weary and broken old age yet light# desper ately-fit is revolting! “ Tarewell, my dear boy ’ Those were her last words.

Actual Studebaker Sales Figures-*- The Proof of National Prosperity Prosperity 1b & condition—not a theory# --«*•*• The Studebaker businea* for August waa larger than that of any other August in the history of the company# J And the first two weeks in September show a gain so gratifying as to be worthy of special emphasis. % In spite of the mental effect of the war—in spite of the sudden cutting off of foreign trade —Studebaker business continues to push Studebaker production to the utmost limit. And this remarkable increase in business is not local or sectional —it is not confined to favored sections of the west or middle west- —it extends from the Atlantic to the Pacific and includes both the north and south. It is real, tangible dollars-and-£ents pros perity that speaks louder than volumes of theory for the fundamental soundness of American industry and, commerce. Glance over the actual figures of gross busi ness from Studebaker branches for the first two weeks in September, as com pared with the same period of 1913. Could there be any more convincing demon stration of national prosperity and con fidence? ii v Could there be any more gratifying endorse ment of Studebaker quality?

Sept 88—A story of the capture of a spy near Namur, told by a soldier to a Belgian angler, has been received. Belgian soldiers in a wood near Namur saw a man fishing and taking no notice of patrols that pass ed. Questioned as to what luok he had had. the answer was, ‘The beg gars won’t bite."
