Tennesset Man Found Guilty Un
der Espionage Act.
Word has Just be?n received at Red
Cross national headquarters of the
conviction of William E. Martin In the
federal court at Greenville, Tennessee,
on an Indictment containing three
counta which chasj-ged him with slan
dering the Red Cross, President Wil
son and the government of the United
f-tatea. Judge Edward T. Sanford
denied the motion for a new trial on
all ground? except that of Insanity
and postponed final disposition of the
caae ten day? to enable the attorneys
to submit affidavits touching on Mar
tin's mental condition.
The first count charged that Mar
tin declared that the Red Croas was
merely a scheme to ?upport a lot of
women and that several hundred Red
Cross nurse? had been sent back from
France because of their conduct in
that country. The ?econd charged
him with making ?currllou? remark?
about the President. He declared,
according to indictment, that the
President was sending all the men of
the I'nited States to France te be
killed and that he would "ate the
resident ?n hell hetoH ht "?vmild go
to France to fight." The third oount
charged Martin with statement? Im
plying that the money raised by the
coVernment for war purpo???? wa? be
ing misapplied.
? plea by the defense that the In
dictment should be quashed on the
?round that the Red Croe? is not a
part of the military force? of the
rnlted State* waa overruled.

S. S. S. Hat Proven to ?* ? Blood
Purifier that Will Urans* tke
Vital Fluid snd Carry Of
the Impuntici
The very fact that Cat.irrh is
often considered to be nothing
?more than a bad li^-ad-cold or in
flammation of the membrane? of
the nose and throat has caused
many people to ?0 through years
of suffering, who might have been
fully restored to health had they
realized that the supposed cold in
the head was not a local trouble
only, but that they had become in
fected with the germs of a compli
cated and dangerous disease.
It is true that Catarrh naturally
begins with a cold in the head, and
this supposed cold may ha\-e been
caused by infection through prox
imity to infected persons in a
closed street car or room, inhaling
the germs when some one coughed
or sneered; bot, however the in
fection occurs, the poisons which
are taken into your system, ulti
mately find their way into your
blood and the supposed cold be
comes a constitutional trouble that
will affect every part of your body.
The poisoned blood circulating
through your system will carry
these germs to the very source of
your vitality.
Look out for these symptoms
for there .is no more annoying or
dangerous disease than Catarrh.
There's a continual discharge from
the nostrils, buzzing in the ears
that grows worse and worsve,
sometimes leading to deafness,
scabs in the nostrils, headaches,
dripping in the throat, constant
hawking and spitting, and in cer
tain Sufi's of the disease the odor
'ron the breath is very offe?-? e.
Catarrh is usually worse in ?-in
ter because of over-heated root-s
;,nd offices, and because the low
temperature prevents the little -e
lirf that health sweating will g,?r.
The poison-vitiated air hi ?
rooms is breathed over and ove
in tact, the daily habits of p-?t an..
women in winter are faith!
of this disease. As the bloc?
late? through the body, it ca-ric?
Catarrh germs into the Moniach.
causing chronic dyspcps'i: it a -
fects the kidneys and bladder: it
weakens the general health ?nd
causes loss of appetite. The ?uf
ferer feels despondent and hah'-??:? '?
most of the time, but the great' ?t
dang.-r lies in the fact that if it?
Catarrh is not checked, the Inagi
may become involved, Iwi
in Consumption, the most ie.? <h
ous of all diseases.
Don't expect to permanently
cure Catarrh with ?pray?, louons
and salves or medicate carette
smoking. They give only tempo
rary relief. S. S. ? ?- the bc?t
