MINES RESUME OPERATION
-INFLUENZA HURT-THINGS Mining Crews' Are Able to Be Back at Work,. Say Baxter Mining Men Business Looks Good. Hi IFraiM 99 &f 1 A series of intensely interesting stories by SERGEANT ARTHUR GUY EMPEY, famous author of "OVER THE TOP," one of the most thrilling and most widely read of all war dories, will he published in this paper. It ginning in an early issue. JjFf HESE stories are of extreme interest because they relate Empey's own experi ences on the battlefields of France, where American soldiers are now fighting in ever increasing numbers. Empey is an American one of the first to get into the war. He writes from an American viewpoint for American readers. In "Over the Top" he gave an indication of what may be expected in this further recital of his experiences. He takes his readers with him, in these stories, right into the first line trenches "Somewhere in France," where the heart of America is today. ;rv. V.

Things are looking up now. World peace and Christmas bus iness loom up just around the corner. In the ponoral optimism generated by the near termination of the war with victory beyond all expectations in bo short a time the whole country is go ing to buy Christmas presents this vear and lots of them. Just at tne time the war pinch had dug deepest Into this Industrial community ana war measures had numbed and almost paralysed the lead and afnc business in stopping the manufacture of tne raw product and drafting the minors to war work along came the "Flu" and contaeious malady seemed to have been designed to "throw a crimp" into this paVticular district. But the mnu enza is pretty well over now and the miners are going back to work. What with doctor bills, nurse bills and hospital bills as well as dozens of patent medicine preventatives peo ple have been buying the minimum of all manner of merchandise. There is not a community in the UnltcdJStates that can expect to renp more commercial profit from peace than Baxter Springs that is, in re lative proportion to size, etc. It looks like everything the last few months has conspired to' throw a damper on this entire district that is, the com mercial life and yet the town has forded the flood in excellent condition. One of the greatest benefits Baxter Sorimrs has realized is in the lowering of rents of both residence and business properties. Many families from all over the mining district who have lone had an eye on Baxter as a place of residence have come- in now that they think the price of admission is risrht. where they hesitated before. With the heavy hand of war off this district the most conservative view points to a good substantial prosper ity here in Baxter Springs.

The city schools have nearly the usual number of pupils and the high school has an at tendance of about 90 per cent of its enrollment. Dr. Graham went out to the high school at assembly hour today and made a short talk to the students. He cautioned them about being careful to remain at home if they felt the least ill, even if they only had a bad cold. He asked the students to obey cheer fully all the rules laid down by Prof. Davidson and his teachers, and in this way try to avoid having to close the school again. The attendance was about 90 per cent of the total number enrolled and all of the students appear to be in a good physical condition. If the attendance had been xery small it was the intention of Prof. Davidson and Dr. Graham to wait an other week before starting the high school work but when the attendance showed so nearly normal it was de cided to continue the work for the present Prof Davidson advised the students that the "cut rule" would not be in forced until things were back to nor mal aa it was feared that some of the students would try to attend when they were really ill if this rule was enforced at this time. The schools of Baxter and Galena remained closed this week. Some of the rural schools are open and others are not, according to the local condi tions in each district ON SECOND. THOUGHT By J. E. House Yesterday we mode cursory refer ence to the attack of aphasia Buffered by Victor Murdock in 1912. "Them pears," as the Missus is wont to put it, "is et" and have no particular signifi cance now. The thing in Victor's career which we can neither forgive nor forget is the fact that he drove Joe Cannon out of public life and into obscurity. But whatever our attitude toward him, one picture of Victor will always linger in memory. It was the crayon portrait he made of himself in Chica go in 1916, when he leaned over to kiss the cold, dead lips of the Pro gressive party and cried into the cuspidor. The world, we take it, will continue to be reasonably safe for democracy so long as those who compose it are not permitted to handle the eplosives. We can think. of nothing so fatal to democracy as unlimited democracy. Those to whom the reconstruction of the world is entrusted now have our opinion about the job. They can take it or leave it Paree seems to be tightening up a bit We learn from the cable news that Edith Kelly Gould and her gen tleman "friend" recently were fined $50 apiece for engaging in an irregu lar love affair. in the case of Mr. Ford. We have just learned that for every Liberty motor constructed in his works Mr. Ford ex acts a profit of $1,000. And Mr. Ford admits he can build Liberty motors faster than sheep can jump a fence.

They used to call Baxter the city of "Old Colonels." Judging from the re ports of Baxter boys who have been mme officers in the army "The Town of New Colonels" would not be inap propriate when the boys come back. Eight funerals passed through Box ter Springs Monday. Most of the deaths from influenza have come from the mining camps south of town. . We believe that an accurate census of Baxter Springs would show some surorisinK results. The canines are entirely in the majority in some parts of town. We believe that everything from a Boston Bull to a Chinese Pug ia represented here. Some bark, some bite and some just eye you malicious ly. Until heaven offers Peace to un- repetant hell, until the Almighty in vitcs Satan to a peace parley and to sit beside him on the throne and rule the universe, we would be traitors to civilization and to God himself to grant peace to an uncrushed, unre pentant, unpunished German. Peace for Germany without full punishment would be a premium upon crime and an endorsement of all Germany's fear ful shedding of blood. It would, moreover, prove that we are poltroons and cowards and lack the moral force to punish criminals, if they are crim inals of high degree. The world must crush Germanism In this war or eventually be crushed by Germanism. There is no middle ground, and he who advocates peace on any other basis is false to all civilization. Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Bond of Quaker Valley received the following tele gram Monday, stating the death of their son, Everette Bond. He had been in service 6 years, at the time of his death he was on board the Bat tleship Pittsburg. Bond was 26 years old and was well known in the young est set of his neighborhood: "The Bureau regrets to advise you that your son, Everette J. Bond, Boatswain mate, First Class, died on board the ship to which he was attached Oct 25, The pneumonia remains have been buried in the cemetery in South America, the Bureau extends to you its sincere sympathy of your lost son.

Why is it that Naturized Liver Tab lets are proving such a big seller? ' The answer is simple, and it is just this: Everyone who tries them is so well pleased with the result that they tell their friends about them. Thousands of people are saying: They are the finest purgative I ever used; I would not be without them in my home; They are the only thing I have ever tried that actually stirs my liver, etc. It is a fact that there are very few real liver medicines sold, and Natur iied Liver Tablets are filling a long wished for desire. They remove the bile and cold bet ter than calomel or pills without grip ing, making you sick, salivating or leaving you constipated. The first step in the treatment of most any ailment is to give good purgative, and it ia astonishing what wonderful things a good purgative will do towards preventing the devel opment of serious sickness, in fact if every one who needs a purgative would take it in time, there would be less deaths caused from carelessness. 15c and S5c When company comes there is no time to waste no chances to be taken so mother 6ees that there is al ways a can of CALUr.lET DAXIilQ POWDER on hand.
