||i is a question of deeper significance than mere national militarism. It present; a vital
personal issue, one that comes right home to you. If you have not given the matter
any thought, it is your duty to do so now.

Should Immediately be Prepared Againrt ire
This is a duty you owe not only to yourself, but to your family as well, a duty
paramount to all other considerations, because there is never a night when your lit
tle ones are tucked into their beds that you have any assurance the house will not take
fire before morning.
Insurance Will Not Protect Against This Danger
and no amount of insurance money collected after their lives have been sniffed out,
in this horrible manner, can return them to your arms. When the emergency of extin
guishing an incipient fire in vour home aris s, the only protection that protects is
E551PYRENE E53
It is a fluid contained in an extinguisher so small that it may be operated by a child.
It weighs only six pounds, filled ready for use. It is so cheap that its cost becomes neg
ligible when compared to its great value in times of emergency. There are two kinds
I of extinguishers:
S7.00 BRASS EXTINGUISHER &7.00
S8.00 Nickel Plated Extinguisher 18.00
The home use of PYRENE outweighs the business use just to that extent a hu
man life is more important than mere dollars. Any fire in its early stages can be
easily and quickly extinguished with this simple little invention. Some idea of the ex
tinguishing power of PYRENE may be drawn from the fact that it has
Extinguished An Electric Arc
of 600 volts at 1200 amperes in 3 seconds, an electric arc of 220 volts at 2000 amperes
in 2 seconds, and an electric arc of 500 volts at 500 amperes with one application of
PYRENE. For the
Extinguishment of fiasolene Fires
it has no equaL By equipping your home,- your place of business, your shop, your
mill your launch or your boat with this simple little device, you will thereby effect great
er security of human life, and protect your property against destruction. SOLD BY i

REDFIELD ASSAILS ?
PACIFIC MAIL CO. a
WASHINGTON?Secretary of Com- ?
merce Rredfleld, in a letter to Secre- t
tary McAdoo of the Treasury. den.'es
the allegation of the Pacific Mall >
Steamship Company that its recent
sale of Ave of its ships to the Atlan
tic Transport Line was forced by the
Seamen's Law. i
According to Mr. Redfleld, he per t
sonally suggested to Vice President R. i
P. Schwerin of the Pacific Mail last t
July, how the company might minim- ?
ze any possible cffipct ot tho new law
>y changing the fuel from coal to oil,
hereby getting more space for freight
.nd catting down its crew by three
ourths, and by engaging stewards
hat could speak English.
He also suggested to Mr. Schwerin
e adds, that the company ought at
?ast to give the law a fair trial. In
tend of quitting without waiting to
,8k how the Department of Commerce
aended to enforce the statute.
Secretary Redfield charges that the
>acific Mall was heavily over capital
zed, its balance sheet on April 30.
915, showing, as alleged a deficit of
nore than 511,000,000 in the profit
ind loss account. He adds:
"It would appear to be possible that
he company, after doing business for
ixteen years without a dividend, dls
overed existing conditions gave them
opportunity of selling out a portion
?f their property at a price which
rould return them the full valuation
f that property upon the company's
looks, plus at least 51,000,000.
"Certainly it is a singular thing
hat the company's stock, which on
darch 17 last, at the close of the best
Iscal year the company has had for
en years, sold at IS, should on Aug.
i, 1915, long months after the Sea
nen's Act had been enacted, and after
he company's negotiations for selling
ts vessels were well forwarde, have
lold for 38."
Mr. Redfield asserted that vessels
inder the American flag will continue
o trade on the Pacific.

"Just at present, the earth Is ap

1916, such a period covering about

PACKED HOUSE SEES
SHOW AT ORPHEUM
More mysterious than ever was the
latest "exploit of Elaine" at the Or
phcum last night, and If you had to
miss It then be sure and see it to
night, for while the movements of the
Clutching Hand are still untrace
able in this film they only Increase
the intense interest which has been
augumcnted by each number of the
"Elaino"' series.
An unusually fine Pathe Dally gave
a glimpse of Greek soldiers at train
ing as the only war feature, the re-,
mainder of the daily being given over
to news features with the exception of
n magnificent portrayal of the jea off
the Welsh coast. This is one of the
remarkably fine sea pictures which
are finding their way into the movie
programs. A Camp Fire ritual made
an especial appeal to those of the lo
cal organf/jition who were in the
theatre and thoto who did not see It
should not miss an opportunity to get
a glimpse of the work that is being
done by their oganization in other i
cities. '
