HEALTH is the
In buying rood-products several things are to be thought
of-i. e., Economy, Results, Easy Handling, Reliability,
but the most important is Health.
Health means everything. In buying clothes, shoes,
hats, furniture, etc., if the buyer is deceived and gets an
imitation the only harm is loss of money. In buying food
products, if imitations are supplied, there is not only a loss
of money but perhaps an injury to health- which is

TO REDUCE NAVIES
OF ENTIRE WORLD
CONGRESSMAN ROBINSON WANTS
TO EMPOWIER PRESIDENT TO
ALL CUT DOWN TOGETHER
Think Powers Might Agree to Have Less
Men and Fewer Ships and Still
Maintain World's Peace.
BY ASSOCIATED PRESS,
Washington, Dec. iz.-Reprcsentative
Gibson Robinson of Tennessee yesterday
introduced a resolution looking toward the
reduction of the navy, .rmament of the
maratime nations of the world. It au
thorizes the president to "open negotia
tions with such and so many of the mara
time nations of the earth as he may deem
expedient for the purpose of formulating
some international agreement whereby the
naval armaments of such nations may be
reduced to the minimum consistent with
the adequate policing of its own waters
and shores and the protection of its own
citizens in other lands; the international
suppression of piracy, privateering and let
ters of marque on the high seas and, with
the efficient enforcement of international
obligations, and the international main
tenance of peace."
GREAT NORTHERN ENGINE
DERAILED ON CROSSING
Traffic Delayed for Some Time on South
Street car service on Utah street was in
terrupted for more than an hour last even
ing by the derailing of a Great Northern
locomotive directly on the crossing. The
mishap occurred about 8 o'clock, the en
gine running into a frog because of the
accumulation of snow and ice on the track.
With the 'big engine standing helpless on
the road it was impossible for the street
cars to move in either direction over the
crossing and hundreds of townspeople, who
were en route to the skating rink, were
seriously incommoded for a time. All the
extra cars that were available were pressed
into service and by means of transfers,
traffic was cotltinued in a way and those
headed for the rink finally suceeded in get
ting there, many of them having to walk.

109 N. Main St., Butte
Largest Drug House In the State
The train which got in from Helena
late last evening brought nearly all the
members of the Silver Bow delegation
back to Butte. Among them were Rep
resentatives Dempster, Axtell, Lynch,
L.ienemann. Shannon, Duggan, Farmer
and WVhiteley. Representative MlcGin
niss did not return with them.
Senator Jacob Albright and Representa
tive Frank B. Linderman of Madison
county and Speaker White of Beaverhead
also came over, and put up at the different
hotels to rest tip before starting for home
today. Representative Lishou of Granite
also stopped over in Butte. Replrescuta
tives T. C. O'Keefe, J. Morrissey, L. E.
Beaudry. Fred Gagnecr and J. H. Schwcnd
of Deer Lodge were among those ont the
train. Representatives Beaudry, Gagner
and Schwcndl kept right on to Anacouda.
Most of the members of the Silver Bow
delegation who returned were very tired,
and for that reason they did not show up
down town very early in the day. Repre
sentative Dempster was one of the few
exceptions to this rule. He was at his
desk in the free employment office at his
usual hour, looking as if nothing had hap
pened to him at all, and was attending to
business in the same old way. The fair
trial bills do not affect his ollice, which
aims to give everybody a fair trial any
From such as could be found around
town the impression was gained that the
results of the extra session were satisfac
tory. Even the eight members who per
sisted in voting against what the people
had asked the legislature to do were in
clined to admit that it was all right in
the sense that it was as fair for one side
to a legal controversy as it was to another.

SERVIAN CRISIS DUE
FOREIGN DIPLOMATS ARE LEAVING
AND IT IS THOUGHT THERE
WILL BE TROUBLE.
IY A.soi'IAl T I'IHlR'sS.
Vienna, Dec. i .-According to a dis
patch from Belgrade, Austrian and Turkish
ministers are preparing to leave the city,
ostensibly for a long holiday. The Rus
sian and Italian representatives have also
left Belgrade on a similar pretext.
The real reason for the exodus of the
diplomats, however, is said to lie that King
Peter has tnegatived the demailds of these
miniisters .for the punishment of the as
sassins of King Alexander and Queen
Other reports say that the Turkish min
ister at Belgrade protested to the minister
of foreign affairs against the secret
preparations which are alleged to be going
on in Servia for the purpose of supporting
an outbreak in old Servia next spring. To
this protest the foreign minister gave an
evasive answer, whereupon the Turkish
minister left Belgrade.
It is considered likely the departure of
the other ministers may be based on the
alleged intention of Servia to interfere in
