AMSTERDAM. Sept 26. German
papers have printed warnings to the
Netherlands government against re
suming trade relations with the en
tente. The Teutons say that Holland's
ships will be seized by the entente.
rteferrins to the seizure of Dutch
vessels, the Cologne Gazette says:
"The Netherlands e-overnment will
not yield unless it obtains guarantees
that Its ships, if sent out, will not be
seized in America as were those taken
there last March."
What Theaters Offer Next Week
Advocates 'of the Kolan minimum
wage bill in the Senate will endeav
or to have it considered at an early
date by the Committee on Education
and Labor. The bill will be handled
by this committee, of which Senator
Hoke Smith of Georgia is chairman.
It is Important, in the opinion of
supporters of the bill, to have it
brought up in the Senate ahead of
the revenue bill. Otherwise, there
will be long delay.
Nora Bayes, who appears as the
star of the new musical play, "Look
Who's Here!" at the Belaaco Theater
next week, beginning Sunday night,
is so well known to local theater
patrons as to scarcely need any fur
ther introduction. Miss Bayes Is un
doubtedly the most popular and tal
ented singing comedienne before the
H. H. Frazee evidenly has another
world beater in Miss Bayes and her
new play, as she has drawn capacity
houses since the opening of the sea
son three weeks ago, and the advance
sale for every performance next week
indicates that Washington wUl be no
exception to the. rule.

I "Suicide by Inches"
THOUSANDS of people commit
suicide by inches!
If one should take minute daily
doses of some irritant or poisonous
drug, no particular effect might be
noticed until accumulation of the poi
son .made its action evident.
Yet how many realize that irritant
and poisonous substances are formed
constantly, even in health, during food
digestion and the preparation of its
waste for elimination?
If the bowels act regularly and thor
oughly, such dangerous matter is
xafely gotten rid of.
But if constipation exists, there
results stagnation of intestinal waste,
increased production of poisonous
substances, and their absorption in
to the blood, which carries them all
over the body.
The result is disease or disorder,
which, if neglected or allowed to
continue, cripples or kills.
The victim of such self-poisoning
commits suicide by inches.
Constipation is a bad habit. It u
a sin against the body.
But there is an erven worse habit,
a crime against Nature, the taking
of pills, castor oil, laxative mineral
waters, and salts to "force the bow
els to move." Because such drugs
do not cure constipation. They
make constipation a habit They
do not prevent suicide by inches."
On the other hand, the Nujol
Treatment not only overcomes con
stipation, but prevents stagnation and
makes self-poisoning- impossible.
Nujol is not a drug, does not act
like any drug ; it is absolutely harmless.
Nujol helps Nature re-establish easy,
daily, thorough, bowel evacuation.
