would not be offered for sale to the
domestic trade until after this year's

formed Gen. Rogers and Col. Davis

manners, whereupon Gen. Rogers
anandoned his ides. However, it was
brought out that on May 1. 1919, and
on strong representation by Director

former policy and ordered the sur
plus sold.

anything but temporary relief af

But* why be satisfied with tem
porary relief from the pangs of
pain which are sure to return
with increased severity, when
there is permanent relief within
your reach? Science has proven
that Rheumatism is a disordered

As the "Burleson situation" stands.
It Is President Wilson's next more.
Democratic leaders who are attach-j
in* great importance to the Post
master General's cablegram to the
President expressing a willingness|
to efface himself from the politicalf
arena by surrendering his Cabinet
position, are expecting action by the
White House.
Democrstic leaders, labor repre
sentative and others in influential!
positions are bringing tremendous
pressure to bear on the President;
to induce him to accept Burleson's
own suggested solution of the trou
bles resulting from the fire directed
at the Postmaster General's office.
In the light of Burleson's state
ment yesterday derying that he had
resigned, the question has been
raised as to whether a suggestion of
willingness to resign is an act of
self-sacrifice or is not tantamount
to a resignation.
