FORD SAYS TIMES
ARE GOOD NOW

DETROIT. Mich.. Aug. 21.?Henry I
Ford says: "I don't want any of the i
war supply money. I will make no
war munitions for any country except
the United States. I would defend
the United States the same as 1 would
build a roof over my house. But 1
don't think we will have to defend our
country. We are filling an order to
supply the British government with ;
15,000 ambulances. Prosperity has
been reported to me from all quarters. <
Conditions in this country were never .
better. There is not one bad spot
that I know of. and I have heard from
them all. Crops are good and the
farmers are buying. We have large
orders from everywhere. If I had
100,000 cars ready finished today. I;
could sell them all tomorrow without
any difficulty."

Why this man bought a
Remington Junior
? Typewriter
" I have been investigating several of
the recent makes of machines, seeking
for one of simple construction for ordi
nary manuscript and letter writing. I
was nearly ready to buy a machine of
another make when I just happened to
see for the first time the Remington t
Junior, and found it to be the very thing '
I wanted.
The man who wrote this is the postmaster of a small
Southern town. He is only one of thousands who have
recently bought a Remington Junior. But his reasons
apply to everybody?they apply to YOU.
The Remington Junior is out latest product and the
latest idea in typewriting.
It is strictly a high-grade machine.
It has the Remington Name, the Remington Guar
antee, the Remington Quality?everything Remington /
except weight and bulk. /
A "Simplified Remington" describes it exactly. /
And its price is $50.00 /

LIFE OF ENTIRE CREW {
PORT ANGELES. Aug. 14.?When
he Peruvian bafk Alliance dropped
ler anchor a mile off Ediz hook yestor
lay after a voyage of 94 days from
tallao with a sugar cargo for Vancou
rer, there was but one able-bodied c
nan aboard. He was Cajt. Para- t
;on. the muster, the rest of the crew r
>elng dead or afflicted with bcri-berl, t
.ho dreail sea scourge of Asiatic wa- r
:ers. 8
Five men succumbed to beri-beri i
luring the last three weeks of the voy
igc^ and the last victim dying while >
.he" bark was beating up the Btrait. 1
There was none aboard with strength I
mough to bury him. <
For more than a month on the be- '
winning of her voyage the Alliance i
ivas in the Doldrums, then another i
mouth of One sailing weather enabled
:hc vessel to make good progress and <
everything was ship-shape until a lit- <
:1c more than a month ago, when one ?'
>f the sailors, R. Pinzon, fell to the
leek in a half-paralyzed condition. Af- <
Ler an examination of the man's legs
Capt. Paragon knew the dread beri
beri was aboard the ship.
From then until the bark reached
Flattery, sailors continued to take
sick and died until the fifth berathed t
his last on the way up the strait. No t
ivttempt wfts made to bury him, as |
the vessel was then ncaring Port An- ,
Seles. * ' (
When Dr. Hyde boarded the Alliance ,
in the quarantine boat he found Capt. ,
Paragon lying exhausted on the deck, t
the crew having been unable to assist ,
him in bringing the vessel into port.
Beri-beri is an acute disease charac- (
terized by oppression of breathing and (
by paralytic weakness. It is nearly ,
ilways fatal. The disease 1b believed .
to have it? origin in India and is fre- ,
luent among the native troops. ,

HENDEE'S ARM
PROBABLY
BE SAVED
- +
J C. Hendee is steadily improving at
St. Ann's hospital. Dr. L. P. Dawes
said this morning that the condition
of the injured arm is very much bet
ter than was hoped for, and from
present indications it will be possible
to save it. An X-Ray picture taken
yesterday shows that the radius has
been completely shattered for a dis
tance of several inches, and that the
ulna has been broken at the end which
Joins the radius. It is the present
expectation of the physicians in
charge that the radius will be plated
and the ulna fastened to It, thereby
retaining the control of the arm. The
mucles are badly shattered, but tha
main nerve, which carries both sen
sory and motor fibres, although se
verely injured, is not completely de
stroyed, and it Is upon the hope that
this nerve will be able to do its share
of proper functioning that the hope
of saving the arm is based.
No work can be done until the dan
ger of infection has passed, and this
will probably take^everal days. Mr.
Hendee's general condition is very .
much improved.
Hendee's was injured a week ago
Sunday when he was struck by a stray
bullet while he was hunting deer on
Admiralty Island.

CMISANA IS
RELIC Of PAST
??f
That this will be the last season
if raining in the Chtsana district is
ho opinion of T. W. Hocker, who ar
?ived from Cordova this morning on
he steamer Admiral Watson. He is
ogistered at the Occidental Hotel,
md after a trip to Tonakoe Springs,
vill go into the Tolovana.
Hocker says that very little gold
vas taken out this year. Conditions
or mining were good, there being
jlenty of water, but tho activity was
confined to the Nelson-James claims,
which were leased Ito Fletcher' T.
Inmshaw and later sub-loosed to other
non.
In short, tho Chtsana is "petered

licts there will be no mon there next
