"Civilized War"
This Is not a mis-nainer. It is only a popular
Misunderstanding. The nations have agreed upon
rules for civilized warfare, which noes not mean
humane fighting, thoufrh in the bi.-ginnir.gr. when
rules were liid down, there were probably some
foolish nations that war mitjht be rendered hun.ane.
The use of chain-shot, for instance, was prohibited
but since then the civilized nations have employed
Moans of warfare infinitely more destructive and
I'ivilized warfare is conducted now by fewer re
cognized rules than formerly. They are designed to
ailord protection to non-combatants but only nhi-n
tiiat can be done without van-pennn operations
iii.ainst the enemy. The sackins find looting of
cities and towns by tlie soldiery is forhiiden and
the humane treatment of prisoners is enjoined. Bui -that
is about as far as rules for the conduct of
civilized warfare can go.
The object of warfare has always been, and al
ways wiil be to kill as many of the enemy as pus
bible and to kill them as 'luickly as possible, or
otherwise dispose of them so that they will not
have to be reckoned with in front. And that, after
is really the most humane warfare because it is
the more quickly ended and the way is prepared
for a resumption of the reixn of peace, a quicker
return of the normal. A war which dra.s its length
through a term of years, the combatants being un
able to make conflicts quickly decisive, is the most
cruel war of all. A war which w mid be so hedged
nnout by rules, restricting the means of destroying
the ejiemy by wholesale would be an inhuman
because of the prolonging effect of ii.
If you are wakeful at night, above all things du
not "try to sleep." To try to sleep means main
taining a stale of tension, and tension is the mortal
foe of sleep.
KvervDody ought to know this, for everybody ix
lia.de to be attacked by that dread evil, insomnia.
The victim of insomnia is indeed tj be pitied. In

lie is the more to be pitied if. as is so ofi.en the
case, he resorts to drugs to cure his sleeplessness.
They cannot cure it, and in the end are liable to
afflict him with a drug habit in addition to his
habit of wakefulness.
Yet insomnia, nine times, out of ten, is a curable
malady, and curable by very simple means. Its
exciting cause' is nearly always a "fixed idea'" that
sleep cannot be iiad.
This idea is usually the produce of a few nights
of occasional wakefulness. Worrying over his ina
bility to sleep, the sul ferer consciously or subcon
sciously forms the belief that sleep is henceforth
impossiide to him. y
He is confirmed in this belief by the fact that
the harder he tries to sleep the more wakeful he
In reality, because tr.ving to sleep means main
taining tension, he has taken the surest means of
keeping himself awake and thus rllov.ing an in
somnia habit to develop.
What one should di is to cultivate an attituue
of entire indifference with respect to whether he
sleeps or no.
This can easily be done if one pu eci.ites that,
after all. loss of sleep is not the terrible thing il
is commonly supposed to be. There are many peo
ple leading useful, healthy lives who habitually
sleep far fewer hours every night than the average
In fact, if the insomniac ceases to worry over
his inability to sleep, if he resoltuely abandons his
effort to compel himself to sleep, the chances are
that sleep will come to him leadily enough.
For he will thereby have put himself into a con
dition of mental relaxation that is itself favorable,
to sleep.
To be sure, even if he ceases to worry over
wakefulness, there are other worries he may take
to bed with him. ' He may worry over business
problems, domestic c'arcs, loss of money, etc. .'' 11
this causes tension, and consequently makes for

A school teacher recently gave his pupils a lec
ture on patriotism. He pointed out the high motives
which moved the Territorials to lea-, e th"ir homes
and fight for their country.
The school teacher noticed that one boy did not
pay attention to the instruction, and as a test ques
tion he asked him:
"What motives took the Territorials to the war?-'

Phoenis; Ariz, May 25, 1915.
To the Board of Pardons and Paroles,
Phoenix, Arizona.
This letter is addressed to you in
answer to the promptings of my inner
consciousness which bids me add my
efforts to those that have already been
made to prevent the fair fame of our
new state from being sullied for the
first time by the taking of human life.
I believe with hundreds of others that
Arizona, who stands high in the for
most ranks of progressive states will
have taksn a step backward by allow
ing this deed to be done; that there
has been a great awakening of con
science among the apathetic voters
since the vote on capital punishment
was taken last fall and that if the
question were submitted now the' law
would be wiped from our statutes by
an overwhelming majority. But I will
no; take up your time by renewing the
hundreds of arguments that have al
ready been made in favor of a stay of
execution now. My plea shall he for a

mandates of the law, and I plead for

entered my soul and there was once a
time when I was placed in a like posi
tion, when every moment of my life
was shadowed by the knowledge that
the hand of one who wi-,-- dear to me
must spring the trap that would send
a guilty and sin stained soul out into
darkness. Dav and night I wrestled
with long and continued applause. Only
a few delegates were prepared with
concrete suggestions, but the general
idea expressed wis that in the south
ern republics the surplus capital of the
United States would find fertile fields
lor investment which must bring in
the future a closer union of the poli
tical and commercial interests.
When the groups assembled after the
general session, the delegation from
Argentina advanced a suggestion which
may make possible an understanding
that all nations represented shall work
for an arrangeVnent whereby disputes
arising between business men of dif
ferent countries will be adjusted by ar
bitration through commercial organiza
tions. Later this proposal was taken
up by the executive committee of the
L'nited States Chamber of Commerce,
which through its president, John
Fahey, gave assurance that everything
possible would be done to have such a
plan approved by the business men of
this country.
The delegation from Panama is ex
pected tomorrow to bring up the ques
tion of the abolition of the United
States commisaries in the canal zone
to the end that their trade will be di

to take up the problem in detail again

Need of greater reliance on their own
resources was the one lesson the Kuro

involved, in the opinion of Paul War
burg, who spoke at the conference. -
Warburg pointed out when the war
began that England then acting as
banker for the world, felt forced to ask
some vast sums due here. This request
was reflected in a varying degrer in
the countries in her debt. He spoke of
the acute situation that resulted in the.
United States and elsewhere on this
hemisphere and added:
"The lesson all American nations will
have to learn from Inst year's experi
ence is that it is unwise for the world
to place its financial dependence on any

Rome's first bulletin dealing with the
movements of the army indicates that
two movements are under way. one
to the northward toward Carnic Alps:
the other through the region of Fri

the Istrain peninsula.
Cervignano. one of the Austrian
towns occupied by the Italians, is
only about ten miles inland rom the
Gulf of Trieste. Both thrusts should
develop severe fighting. Just as Italy
lightly characterized Monday's Aus
trian raids along her coast, so Aus

operations to date as border skir

statement laid stress on the Italian
rush across the border, an official
statement from Vienna ignores it and
gives details of the Austrian swoop
on the Italian coast, enumerating the
damage, and emphasizing the slight
Italian resistance.
