"CALIFORNIA SYRUP OF FIGS*
CAN'T HARM CHILDREN AND
THEY LOVE IT.
Mother! Your child isn't naturally
cross and peevish. See if tongue is
coated ; this is a sure sign the little
stomach, liver and bowels need a
cleansing at once.
When listless, pale, feverish, full of
cold, breath bad, throat sore, doesn't
eat, sleep or act naturally, has stom
ach-ache, diarrhoea, remember, a gen
tle liver and bowel cleansing should
always he the first treatment given.
Nothing equals "California Syrup of
Figs" for children's Ills; give a tea
spoonful, and In a few hours all the
foul waste, sour bile and fermenting
food which is clogged in the bowels
passes out of the system, and you
have a well and playful child again.
All children love this harmless, deli
cious "fruit laxative," and it never
falls to effect a good "inside" cleans
ing. Directions for babies, children
of all ages and grown-ups are plainly
on the bottle.
Keep it handy in your home. A little
given today saves a sick child tomor
row, but get the genuine. Ask your
druggist for a bottle of "California
Syrup of Figs," then see that it is
made by the "California Fig Syrup

1 \\\ —/Tk' RlffDiFS Aft' tessing in the criminal branch of the
\ 3 4 , .\ f™. federal district court the full details
> a W O. u; \TH 5 ÜUIRi\ELS i of why he would rather not go to \iar
for the nonce, or later.
Abraham, who was horn in Russia,
and has wasted mest of his twenty
nine years in North America, was ar
raigned for refusing to appear for ex
amination under the federal draft act.
In his blotted questionnaire be made
it dear that his only dependents are
birds and squirrels of Central park,
and, although there are a lot of them, this excuse was deemed less than «mph •
He explained that he fed the birds and squirrels and outlined what the menu
was and how often the bird and squirrel food was served, whereupon dete< tin s
with rubber heels began tiptoeing toward the Adler furnished room at I MM "est
Upon arriving there they found Mr. Adler with one hand within ids lapel
and with one knee slightly extended, defying the world, lie stated that he
would not move one elbow, ear or eyelash, and that no power on earth could
move him. The reason for this was that lie had been ordained by beaten sis a
minister of God; that he was a "god in heart," and that, by the merest good
fortune, he was a "star in heaven." This being explained. Mr. Adler was
removed, feet up, to the federal court and arraigned before Judge Julius M.
Government alienists tapped Mr. Adler's head and found that far from
being empty it was full of nonsense and that he was one of the sanest bird and
squirrel chefs ever annoyed by the thought of armed conflict. \\ lien arraigned
he explained that the sight of anyone being jabbed, punched or hooted makes
him weaker than usual and that lie would go to war if the government would
guarantee him an enemy who would not get too flip on slight acquaintance.
So the detectives picked him up by the feet again and took him over to the
Essex county Jail, where, as luck would have it, he will be the only "star of
heaven" ou the premises.
Atrocious Cruelty Inflicted on "Sons of Rest '

er in the back parts of saloons. Three
detectives chaperoned them to the
presence of Chief of Police Reilly, and
when their pedigrees were registered
it disclosed that they were Russians,
Austrians and Lithuanians.
Walter Gozvezyk, thirty-six years
of age, living at 44 Prospect avenue,
when searched produced a draft card
with A-l marked on it. The police
believe he had come from Chicago to
evade the draft. Gozvezyk said that all he had in the world was the rich
music of his name, and just ns the police began to feel sorry for u man who had
to walk through life with a cognomen like a buzz saw $028 in bills was also
found tucked away In one of his pockets. Chief of Police Reilly asked another
Son of Rest what he did to keep the wolf from leaping through the trunsom.
He answered :
"I'm a cutter."
"A cutter of what?"
"A cutter of cards."
After that little jest at the expense of the municipality the men were taken
to jail. They will be arraigned later before Recorder William J. Cain of the
police court and it is predicted that life would lose its glamor for them. The
Recorder has vowed that he would make Bayonne a "humless town, and the
phrase sounds ominous for the prisoners.
Idlers, shirkers and the persons of leisure who have been dodging work
and taking up room in public thoroughfares are learning today that the nation
is at war and that they must help by working or go to jail. Every unemployed
man between the age of eighteen and fifty years must enroll under the provi
sions of the antiloafer law recently passed by the legislature. And then as
soon as possible—and the police of the various cities are noting the elapsed
time_they must be at work in occupations found for them by the authorities
Fines and imprisonment await all who violate the law.

"How aboi^t parachutes?" was suggested.
"Of course, many details remain to he worked out," said Mr. Nicholson, "but

His Income Hardly Adapted to "Gay White Way"
C HICAGO._Legacies may come and legacies may go, hut the one into which
Henry Miller came just goes right on forever. By the terms of the last
will and testament of Mr. Miller's wife, who died on January 30 last, he will
receive every day as long as he lives
an expense account of ten cents. This
he can spend in any way which seems
to him desirable.
Mrs. Miller left an estate of $5,000
and it is to be divided in equal parts
among her husband and two sons,
Charles and Henry, Jr„ It Is provided
that they give up their home and that
Henry Miller, Jr., as executor of the
estate, will ohtnin a suitable boarding
place for Henry Miller, Sr. Rent for
one room and board for the elder Mr.
Miller are to be paid once a week and a lump sum of ten cents is to be given
him daily by the estate. In a sense he is a remittance man. Seen at the court
Mr. Miller seemed to think that his legacy would he just about enough to keep
him uncomfortable for life, as was indicated when he was asked for a briet
Interview. That he gave.
"Well," said Mr. Miller in oart; "Well, well!"
Food Expert Emphasises SuperionS
of Milk to Sugar ror Children
By DR. HARVEY W. WILEY
I log tiioec who arc doing their utmost to economize
and those in somewhat straitened circumstance* to P" n '
(1er carefully these suggestions : to eat more of the cheap
er kinds of food-, such as ('créais bought in hula and
eaten with simplicity ; to purchase less sugar, which is
bv no means a necessity, and add this saving to the sum
set aside for the purchase of milk.
I should like to see these, conditions obtain, name
ly, that in every family where there are children, at least
a pint of milk should be used each day by each child.
Whenever milk is purchased in these circumstances, it
should be devoted first of all to the infant or young child, and if any be
left over it may he used by the children of larger growth, and the men and
women of the household.
1 am not exaggerating in any sense when 1 say that 10 cents invested
in milk is of far more value to the family with a child than when invested
in sugar. This is true, although the heating power of 10 cents worth of
sugar is considerably greater than that of l (t cents worth et milk.
The nutritive value to the child, however, is far greater in 10 cents
worth of milk than it is in 10 cents' worth of sugar. A child fed sugar
will never he nourished and grow, and it cannot be well nourished and
grow properly without milk.
All the constituents of milk nourish the child. Its bones and teeth
are made from the valuable mineral substances in the milk, lho muscles
and parts of the nerves, tendons, and bones are built up from the protein
(casein) of the milk. The heat of the body is supplied by the milk sugai
and milk fat.
Strong Arguments Made in Favor of
Universal Military Training
By THOMAS ADDISON of the Vigilantes
There are inanv arguments in favor of universal military training
Here is one that struck home to me with peculiar force.
This southern state from which 1 write has a population of over twl
million, of which 15 per cent is illiterate. J have met a good many of this
latter class in my goings about in the rural districts. One of them I knew
very well. He was a young fellow, white, and a farmhand. He had three
brothers. Onlv one of the four could read; he was a carpenter in the city
The others had stayed on the farm, and never gone to school. The}
couldn't write their names. The mother could read and write, after 6
fashion. The father was dead.
Well, Jim, the one I knew, was drafted and sent to Camp Lee. Ihii
cut him off completely from his family, for, you see, he was unable to com
municate with them in any way hut by word of mouth. Jim had the
regular farm slouch when he left home. His shoulders were hunched over,
and his walk was a shuffle. His eyes had a bovine look. His iace had nc
expression. His speech was a slovenly drawl. This was the picture of Jim
that remained with me from my last view of him.
The other day I dropped into a hotel here in the city to send off some
picture cards. In the writing room a young infantryman sat at a desk neat
mine. He was making rough weather of a letter he had under way, but
was getting on just the same.
Presently I heard my name spoken and looked up. The soldier had left
his seat and come over to me. He was standing by my chair, his hand ex
tended—as trim a figure of a man anyone would wish to set—erect,
straight-shouldered, alert, quick-eyed and brimful of energy. I stared at
him, and he grinned in return.
''Don't vou remember me?" he quizzed. "I m Jim Blank. I in wait
ing for mv chum, we're going to a picture show. J bought I d put in the
time writing home to ma." IIis head lifted pridefully. I can do it now.
We've got a bully good school at camp. 1 m getting on fine all round. I in
living eveiy minute I'm awake." He laughed out loud in the exuberance
of his feelings. "Say," he confided, "it tickles me to.death 'cause you
didn't know me. I wouldn't take $10 for it. '
Well, is this one argument for universal military training, or isn't
We Must Stand By Our Boys Who Are
Fighting for Us "Somewhere in France"
By PAULINE WORTH HAMLIN
Word has come back from the boys in France "We will be all right
over here in the trenches if you folks over there will stand by us.
What do they mean by standing by ?
They mean for us to do our part in food conservation, in buying
Thrift stamps and Liberty bonds. They mean for us to stand by the Red
Cross with our money, our hands and our brains. They mean for us to
refrain from buying nonessentials so that the men and women who make
them can be released for the making of essentials. They mean for us to
place a one-cent 6tamp upon our periodicals when we have finished reading
them so that the boys may have good things to read.
They mean for us to write cheerful letters to them. One young sol
dier said, "I don't mind the danger and the discomforts if I feel that
everybody Is all right at home, but when I get a letter saying that Frank
is out of a job and Sister Hattie is sick and food is so high they can't af
ford it and there ie no coal—well, I feel like the devil."
Remember that by the time that letter reaches France Frank may
have a letter job, Hattie may be fat and rosy, food may be easier to get
and the coal shortage ended. Even if that is not true write cheerful letters
anvwav. The boy over there needs cheer, it isn't his place to be cheering
vou. Remember that whatever discomforts we may he having over here
they are comforts compared to what they have over there. I yet us not fail
our boys wbo are fighting for us. The very least we can do is stand by.
The star-spangled banner that tells how many employees are in their
country's service is worthy of all honor, too.
The story Americans like best in their evening's paper contains but
