GARDNER ATTACKS WILSON DIPLOMACY Says President Is Characteriz ed With Moral Strabismus of Franklin Pierce. DETROIT, Jan. 5. Declaring Presi dent Wilson "is characterized with the moral strabismus of a Franklin Pierce," Congressman A. P. Gardner, of Massachusetts, last night denounc ed the Administration's system of diplomacy before the Detroit Real Estate Board. The lawmaker also bitterly attack ed theLeague to Enforce Peace, and the efforts of pacifists, Andrew Car negie and Henry Ford in particular. Excerpts rfom his address follow: Excerpt" From Address. "President Wilson, so it appears, doesn't care which side wins the war, provided the world can have peace and the .warriors' passions be assuaged. I see, no hope for lasting peace until the Hapsburgs and the Hohenzollerns have been defeated or see defeat star ing them in the face. President Wilson would send the Kaiser to Sun day school. I woUId end tym to St Helena. "But the worst of It Is that we are behaving as If we were afraid of Germany. Let us comfort ourselves: Japan Is at war "with Germany and a mighty good thing he is making of It, tpo. Might Follow Japan. "Perhaps, If we were to follow Japan's example we might be able to redeem President Wilson's promise of 'strict accountability' without entail ing even so much as the pain of a tooth-ache on the boy whose mother did not bring him up to be a soldlnr. "I wish that the President would follow the example of his most re cent Democratic predecessor and adopt the policy of dispatching in ternational notes which admit of only one 'interpretation. Doable Discounted. "Clever as is the web of words his meaning, the statesmen of Eu rope can double discount him in diplo matic thlmble-riggtng. "Grover Cleveland may have been rough from Europe's point of view, but he certainly was ready. It is true that Cleveland was no master of the niceties of dainty manicured English, but he could electrify the world with a ringing note on Great Britain's ag gressions in South America, and he could make that note understood the very first time without calling on his Secretary of State to explain It up and explain It down with three separate Interpretations and then add a fourth himself. Admits Their sirength. "Republican as I am, I admit the rugged strength of Andrew Jackson and Grover Cleveland. I wish that some statesman of that sturdy type ruled this country today! "No such luck! Woodrow Wilson, to our sorrow, Is characterized by the moral strabismus of a Franklin Pierce, who preferred slavery to vio lence, rather than by the wholesome truculence of a Jackson of a Cleve land, who preferred a good stout punch for America to a hollow bar gaining for a front seat at Europe's council board. League To Enforce Peace. "Now comes this proposition of the League to Enforce Peace, headed by our distinguished fellow-cltlzen, Wil liam Howard Taft "Judging by several of his public utterances, I should be Inclined to add that the League to Enforce Peace has the 'backing of President Wilson, were it not for the fact that the President's utterances are not always susceptible of clear Interpretation un til we are quite sure that we have Mr. Lansing's final explanation of the President's meaning." Doctor Says Nuxated Iron Will Increase Strength of Delicate People In many Instances Persons have suffered untold .gony for year, dor- taring for nrrtous wenknemm stomach, liver Or kidney disease or none other ailment when their real trouble was lack of Iron In the blood.

Lieutenant Briscoe expressed him self as highly pleased with the cadet organization. He visited all or tne schools this week with a view of .as certaining the standards that have been set He said: "The cadet corps as It now stands Is at a point of the highest efficiency. It compares fav orably with regular army units, as far as the instruction has been car ried on. "The number ot boys In the organi zation is not as great as it should be, however, and steps to enlist more boys probably will come. I am ex tremely pleased with the outlook." This Is the first corps of boys that the lieutenant has worked with, but he states that the prospects are ex ceptionally Interesting. Well Known Here. Lieutenant Briscoe is well known In Washington military circles. He attended the public schools near his home In the Shenandoah valley, after ward being graduated from the Randolph-Macon Academy at Front Royal.

Kramer, the line of work for the corps to follow is being planned. PUN SCHOOL DISCUSSION Home and 8chool Council Will Meet Next Week.

Educational Bulletin-No. 2 Pure Yeast Was Unknown in the United States Until Made by the Corby Company It is a matter of official record, in Investigations made by the Government bureaus charged with such duties, that adulterations entered into the manufacture of practically all yeasts except that produced by the Corby Compressed Yeast Company, and were by direc-' tion so labeled, up to within a very short time. Even now in many sections of the country those yeasts still bear this label denoting adulteration. At a hearing appointed by the Board of Food and Drug Inspection of the Department -of Agriculture, August 3rd, 1909, every yeast manufacturer present but ONE defended the adulteration of his product the CORBY COMPANY ALONE CONTENDING FOR A STANDARD OF PURE YEAST, free from all foreign elements which render strength un certain, and propagate impurities, SUCH AS IT ALWAYS HAD, WAS THEN, AND IS NOW PRODUCING all of which is a matter of official record. - The organization of the Corby Compressed Yeast Company was directly due to the impossibility to obtain from existing sources yeast of the strength and purity essential to the baking of the best quality of bread. The standard of yeast then created has been consist--ently maintained making such' improvement as study and scientific research has made pos sible. Its dfimand has been established solely- upon the recognition of its superior quality and Corby Yeast is today the accepted standard by the largest and most discriminating' bakers throughout the land who appreciate not only the merit of the Corby product itself, but have found In its methods of legitimate competition relief from the arbitrary policy and price which a previous virtual monopoly made possibleand that would inevitably return, followingegislation making the operation of the Corby plant impossible because of the un avoidable creation of alcohol as a by-product which, however, Jias always and solely been sold for use in the arts, sciences, and manufactures. . It may not be generally known to what extent ethyl alcohol is required in pharmaceut ical preparations. , The United States Pharmacopoeia, which is the official standard the law of the land by Congressional enactment publishes in its latest revision, issued in September,. 1916, a list of nq less than one hundred and thirty-seven recognized ethical preparations in which alcohol is indicated either as a principal or as a solvent. v - Ether, Ethyl carbamate, Ethyl chloride, Camphor water, - Collodion, Aromatic elixir.

Qiifir.c The syrups constitute simply another form for the administra t3yriipo tion of a number of drugs, for the most part those occurring; also in other preparations; alcohol is a constituent of a number of them, ap pearing as a solvent or stabilizer. A recent volume, "Pharmacology of Useful Drugs," compiled by Dr. Robert A. ' Hatcher and Dr. Martin I. Wilbert, and published by the American Medical Association, the highest medical authority in this country, states on page 102, in the section on alcohol, the following: "In pharmacy it (alcohol) is widely used as a solvent and pre servative, and many of the extractive preparations, including tinc tures and fluid extracts, contain from 30 to 80 per cent of alcohol." Thus it will be seen that alcohol plays a tremendously important part in medicine and surgery, rendering it a positive necessity in the successful preparation of the most potent agencies employed in the prevention arid cure of diseases which endanger health and jeopar dize life. , The Corby Plant is strictly a yeast manufactory; and every gallon of the alcohol which its legally prescribed process produces has by strict understanding been sold and used ONLY in these important industries.
