Shipments Abroad in November Nearly Double Those of Month Last Year. With gasolenb prices In Washington and throughout the United States doubte whRt they were a few months ago. axpoYts of this and other oils are increasing steadily. The monthly summary of foreign trade for November, just Issued by the Bureau of Foreign nnd Domestic Com merce, shows that gasolene exports for tho month were 24.836.6D2 gallons. This includes naphtha and similar volatile oils. In November. 1M4, the exports were a little In excess of 15,000.000 gal lons, ahd at that time, In response to the war demand, they wero considered large. For the first eleven months of last year the exportation bf gasolene total ed more than 252.000.000 gallons, as com pared with nearly 188,000,000 gallons for the same period of the previous year. The war demand for breadstuffs ap parently fell off during last November. The exportatlons were valued at but J0,W,629, aa compared with a value of -well over 4O,000,000 for November of 1914. The figures for the eleven months, however, show a total for 115 almost twice that of 1914. For the first eleven months of 1915 exports of breadstuffs were valued at ' J477.423.790. For the same period of 1914 the value was only $244,449,341. Cattle, hogs and sheep, meat and dairy products, nnd even cotton show remarkable gains In quantity exported. In addition to the gasolene exports, the shipments of Illuminating, lubri cating, and residuum or fuel oils, also showed big gains for the month and for the first eleven months of the year. Cotton exports arc ahead of those of 1914 by something like 2.500,000 bales.

Wife Sings For Alimony; Sounds Odd, But a Fact CHICAGO, Jan. 13. The divorce of Mrs. Margaret Calder from Frank Cald cr was of a very businesslike character. They did not let their martial difficul ties interfere with their associations as employer and employe. Instead of seek ing alimony, therefore, Mrs. Calder con sented to accspt 30 a week and continue her part as "leading lady" in the "High IJfe Girls," of which her husband Is manager Mrs. Calder's stage name Is Mltchelena Pennettl. which Is also her maiden name. Burlesque "fans" call her a "star." At any rate, there Is no disput ing she is a beautiful woman, on the sunny side of thirty. Her former hus band Is ne-ir the lialf century mark. i i" i i - i i Cabrera Re-elected. GUATEMALA CITY, Gtntcmala, Jan.

"W; ELL, Joe, I understand you havo a special question ou want to ask mo this evening," said Uncle Har ry. Father spoke of it at lunch today, tut he wouldn't tell mc what it wiU." ''L'nclo Harry, we want you to ex plain what tho newspapers meant tho other dav when they printed headline about 'Jcvpn More Stated Become ivy With the New Year,' " said Joe. "The word, 'dry' (s the opposite of wet.' Isn't It7" said Uncle Hnrrv. l-'oth hoys nodded their heat's ind laughed: tho question seemed so easy. "And in this ense 'dry' means that Intoxicating liquors shall not be manu factured or sold In these seven States," added Uncle Harry. "Which States became drv, begin ning with the new vcar?" asked Jimmy. "Washington. Oregon, Colorado. Iowa, Arkansas, South Carolina, and Idaho," said Uncle Harry. "In . other words, these have become prohibition States." "Are these the only Prohibition States'" asked Joe. "N'o. Indeed." said Uncle Harrr. "Al together there are eighteen prohibition Slates. In addition to tho seven new States there are these eleven: Maine, West Vlrfglnla. North Carolina. Ten nessee. eGorgla. Alabami. Mississippi. 8TATC3 AuatAOrr onr STATES 'OWV SINCE JANUARY 1,1915 Oklahoma. Kansas. North Dakota, and Arizona. The people of Virginia have voted to make their State dry. hut the prohibition law does not go Into effect until November 1, 1916." "And there are no prohibition laws In anv of tho other States?" asked Joe. "There are no prohibition laws, but theie are what aro called local option laws In all the other Statps with the exception of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Nevada." 'Yhst's local option"" asked Jimmy. "ihe word 'local' means, ot u locality or city or ton," said Uncle Marry. "If I say. 'the local health condltionn bio good.' I mean that the health ot the people, right here In our town, is good. The word 'option' means, tne right to say. Kor example. It you asK mc if the. New York Giants are goinx soutn tor a spring training trip ana 1 say that the matter Is 'optional' witn the players, I mean that the players hnve the right to say whether tney wlU go. Now 'local option' means mat the people of each locality have tne right to vote and decide whether Intox icating liquors shall be sold In tneir town, or county, or district." "Does Congress at Washington nave anything to say about this questlonr asked Joe. "The people who are working ror prohibition are trying to get Congress to pass an amendment to the National Constitution which will submit tne question to all the people or all tne States at one time. A bill providing for national prohibition was introduced in the last Congress and a majority ot the members of the House of Represent atives voted for It. That Is, at least tifty-one out ot every hundred itepre sentatlves voted for it. But the United States Constitution says that a oni providing for an amendment to the Con- stilution must receive the votes of two- can be submitted to the people ot the country to be voted upon.

"The pcnplo who are active In prohi bition work sav there nrc two reasons:" said Uncle Harrv. "First, thev point out that more and more people believe that drinking Intoxicating liquors weak ens the bodv. and that a man or woman with a weak body cannot do the best work or et the most fun and pleasure out of life. The second reason given is that there i a national organization called the Anti-Saloon league, which has men and women In all parts of tho country who are working ovcrv day In the vear to teach the neoole and show them that they are wasting their health and money In buying and drinking In toxicating liquors: and these same men and womn are also working to get tho Stnte Jetrialatures and Congress to pass prohibition laws. "Boys, this Is one of the bis questions oT the dav. We'll watch and see what Congress does about the prohibition amendment to the Constitution." (Copyright. 1916. by the M-C Syndicate.)
