freedom, a sacred monument to our

Meanwhile the historical eleventh
hour drew nigh: the ejes of the
firing party were on their trusty
wrist watches; their guns were Jn
readiness. At exactly sixty-one sec

the word which simulated the last
shots of the war. Rifles of Marines,
sailors and soldiers popped stmul
taneously. and kept on popping, be
tween flashes of Are and clouds of
smoke. But the barrage was direct
ed heavenward, as though they sent
swift messengers to departed com
rades to tell them they were not
forgotten here below. Echoes an
swered promptly and pierced clouds
sent an additional downpour.' to
show that they. too. heard.
The firing ceased abruptly at 11
o'clock and a moment of silence
was requested in tribute to the men
who made the great sacrifice. This
was ended by the strains of the
"Star Spangled Banner." which
brought everyone to attention. As

The Flight of the Stork
SO profound is the effect which the unborn infant has
upon the mother that she mav be said to tingle to
her very finger tips.
The conditions of pending motherhood, existing as they do,
over a protracted perioa of month*, create almost a new state of
being for a woman. Just aa she prepares herself for it, so will most
favorable conditions prevail when her child is born.
Under all normal internal conditions, women who use Mother's
Friend need have no apprehension about the ultimate results of
maternity. On the contrary, the period of duration in expectancy
will be one of joyful anticipation- a looking forward to the won
derful event in perfect serenity.
" My mother used Mother's Friend before I was bom
26 years ago and my birth was practically a painless one,"
writes ooe enthusiastic mother. How very natural then
that her own mother, whoae experience had unqualifiedly
proven the virtue of Mother's Friend would have her
daughter enjoy the same benefits.

The barrage of photographers he

was the fiercest met during his Amerl
can travels.
Answering a question as to letters
from anonymous feminine admirers,
he laughingly told of a letter handed
'him as he entered his machine at the
station. It was signed by three Amer
ican girls who waited his opinion on
suffrage. Prince Edward declared he
was having a 'wonderful time and was
more than pleased at his reception
in America.

ence than to try to settle difficulties
by a board of arbitration.
American Federation of I^abor of
ficials said yesterday that they had
no statement to make regarding the
rescinding of the strike order.
The renewal of negotiations between
the miners and the mine operators
as programmed by Secretary Wilson
to begin Friday Is not based on the
working theory that all of the miners
will return to work.
Hone Likely to Stay Oat.
It is conceded in both camps, that
is. by both the labor leaders and by
the coal operators, that It is likely
that some 'of the miners will refuse
to follow the lead of President I^ewis
and stay out until the negotiations
are concluded.
But thA general opinion !? that the
strike If now at an enA ia fact, as
well as In name, and that so rnanv
of the miners will go back to work
that something approaching normal
production will be resumed
Tho Government, however, took no
action yesterday toward rescinding
the orders governing distribution of
coal* and priority rules.
Ths coming conference between the
miners and the mine operators is not
expected to bo of short durstlon. One
of the most important matters to be
settled Is the making of a new agree
ment to replace the one now In ex
lstence. This will take some time.
Expect Fall Settlement.
It is also predicted that both the
miners and the mine operators will
approach each other in a better frame
of mind than thfcy were in before the
strike. There is at bottom a solid
feeling of mutual understanding be
tween both miners and mine opera
tors. and this is expected to make
itself felt in the expected ?negotia
tions. .
Secretary Wilson's telegram to Mr.
Lewis was:
?*I have today sent to Harry A.
Taylor, president of the National Coal
Association, the following: 'The offi
cials of the United Mine Workers of
America bavin? this day withdrawn
the strike order, I request that you
and associate representatives of coal
operators from the different fields In
volved In the present strike meet me
in the city of Washington in the
auditorium of the new Interior Build
ing on Friday. November 14. at U
a. m.. for the purpose of negotiat
ing a basis of settlement. Will you
immediately communicate this request
to your associates and urge upon them
the importance of their presence? I
have sent the same request to Thomas
T. Brewster, chairman of the Coal
Operators* Association, and also re
quested Acting President John L.
Lewis of the United Mine Workers
of America and his associates to meet
me at the same time and place.'
Other Leaders Called.
"I have sent a similar telegram to
Mr. Thomas T. Brewster specifically
applying to the Operators' Scale Com
mittee of the Central Competitive
Coal Field. I therefore make a simi
lar request that you and associated
representatives of the United Mine
Workers from all districts involved
in the present strike meet me for the
same purpose in Washington at the
Interior Building, as set forth in the
telegram to Mr. Henry A. Taylor."
It is regarded as a good omen for
the eventual success of the confer
ence that before Secretary Wilson
sent out his invitations for the con
ferenoe. Chairman Brewster of the
executive committee had already tele
graphed to President Lewis urging nn j
immediate conference. In this wire. :

While labor leaders in Washington
said that the calling off of the coal
strike was to be regarded as "another

quarters that the miners when they
