The seventeen-year locusts are re? ported to have made their appearance in large numbers In portions of Prince George and Dlnwlddle counties' south Swiss and Dutch experts have perfected for us the finest milk ever produced in America. It is like the milks of Switzerland and Holland. This milk of ours comes from Holstein cows, fed in America's best dairy districts. The milk fresh from the cow is put into a vacuum. Then at a low heat, v/e evaporate two thirds of the water. Nothing whatever is added?no sugar, no preservative. Nothing but water is taken out. The milk is sterilized without scorching. It comes to you an absolutely germless milk. It is as thick as thick cream?28 per cent solids, 8 per cent butter fat. In the past seven years we have spent $100,000 in learning through experts how to produce such milk. ' Six Cents Per Quart If this milk is reduced to the usual milk's richness the cost will figure about six cents per quart Yet it is evaporated, sterilized and sealed up In tins. Our process coBts less than it costs the milkman to make his daily deliveries. That it where the saving comes. Yet you get in Van Camp's rich Holstein milk, not milk from mongrel cows.. You get a sterile milk in place of milk that is germ-laden. *? You get the whole milk as it comes from the cow-rail of the butter fat, all of the solids. It is not carted around?not left to stand and separate. Von Camp Packing Co. Indianapolis, Ir,d. And you can buy, if you wish, a month's supply at a time. It is like having a cow in the pantry. Thick as Cream Van Camp's 'Milk comes to you as thick as thick cream. So thick that you add one part water for coffee. Milk dishes made with it taste very much as though they were made with cream. Milkman's milk separates before it gets to you. It separates after you get it. Perhaps you skim it, too. When it comes to the cooking it is rarely more than a half-milk. When you use this whole milk?this rich, Holstein milk?you'll be amazed at the fla? vor it gives to a milk dish. But remember that milk, with all its richness, is cheaper than common milk. When you once taste a milt dish made with Van Camp's you'll never want a dish made without it. Free From Germs Van Camp's MilB Is utterly sterile. It Is made so by pas? teurization. Raw milk, as you know, contains mil? lions of germs. Of 9 ten they are dangerous germs. Think how pleasant it is to drink a milk that has none at all. This milk solves the whole milk problem. It supplies you a milk sealed up at the dairy ?fresher than milkman's milk. It brings you the milk of the best dairying districts in a perfectly sterile state. You can have a month's supply on hand, if you wish. Open a can when you need it. There's no shortage, no waste. We Milk 30,000 Cows We are milking daily 30,000 cows to sup? ply the people who know this milk. Tens of millions of cans are used annually. It is not like condensed milk, which is half,sugar. It is not like the ordinary evap? orated milk. Our Dutch and Swiss experts have created for us the finest milk in Amer? ica. You ought to enjoy it. One can will make you a convert, The 16-or. can?a full pint of Van Camp's? costs 10 cents. The 6 oz. can costs 5 cents. Evaporated and sealed at our dairies in six states. Order from your grocer, ?

Russia Ready to Act If Satis? factory Assurances Are Not Given. St. Petersburg. May 24.?A solemn declaration of pacific intentions and willingness to abstain from menacing I Montenegrin territory will be regarded as tho sole satisfactory answer by Tur-1 key to the Russian note which was sent yesterday to the Turkish government. Tho Imperative character of tho note, which warned Turkey that tljo concen? tration of Turkish troops along the Montenegrin'? frontier since the Alba? nian outbreak constituted a serious menace to poaco, was dictated by the seriousndss of the situation. In spite of criticisms by the. German prc3S, which have been telegraphed here, the Russian Foreign Ofllce con? siders the sunoort of tho majority of the powers and the active co-oporatlon of Great Britain, Franco and Italy as? sured. The measures against Turkey In case that government proves recalcitrant may include the employment of naval forcos. which were efTlcaclous,' In the day of Abdul Hamid. Russia has long watched the scone of tho Albanian up? rising with anxiety, and recent reports loft no doubt as to tho aggressive na? ture of the military movement on tho Montenegrin frontier. Turkey explained tho massing of troops no strategic ncccs<loa, claim? ing Hint tho Albanian strongholds of GuBlnJo, Plava and Boranl oould bet ? ~ threatened only from the Montenegrin side. But the Turkish assertions have been received with small credence bv the diplomatic body in Constantinople, because Turkey has persistently re? fused to allow foreign observers to join the troops of Turgul Shekel Pnsho.

He risked nearly the whole funds of the three hankB in tho security of these enterprises and, because of these Investments, tho banks failed. The allied banks of Chicago, In order to prevent a panic, took ovor the Walsh banks, holdings and AValsh's proper? ties and paid tho depositors in full, but In tho liquidation tho allied banks wiili sustain a substantial loss. Muxt Uc Punished. "The application Is denied. A bank officer who uses such funds to pro? mote enterprises In which he has a private interest, and without the knowledge and consent of the share? holders for whom he is a trustee. In? volves tile whole cupltal of the bank in unauthorized speculation, from which ho Is to derive proilt tr suc? cessful, Is guilty of a fraudulent breach of trust, Is guilty of moral turpitude and must be punished. "Walsh had acquired great power In the control of three large banks. Ills responsibilities were commonsurnte. His guilt Is In proportion to tho trust and confidence extended to him. Of course, ho did not Intend to steal the J money of his depositors or stockhold- j ers, but. he is not less guilty on this account. He. abused their trust and confidence and imperiled tho money of those who trusted hint In enterprises Of most speculative character, nnd he thus lost their money. "Many Influential and prominent, per? sons have petitioned for Iiis pardon. They do not fully appreciate. It seems to me, the high Importance to society that such criminal breaches of trust as this be. severely punished. "Walsh is sevonty-three years of use. His health is not good, but I do not think from the evidence that his i condition is alarming or requires his release before the time when his case may be brought before the parole au? thorities. "The opportunity to commit such crimes is only afforded to men whu have enjoyed high position in society und have secured the trust and friend? ship of many. Every case of this kind, therefore, must present some such con? siderations as those referred to, nnd if the executive on an uppeal for clemency should yield to them it would defeat the object of the law and pro sent a demoralizing effect between the punishment meted out to the ordi? nary criminal, whoso circumstances have naturally led him into crime, und one whose position In society should have, niudo for him the strongest re? straint against violation of the law." In the Morse case Mr. Taft said In part: "Charles W. Morse was convicted of misapplication of funds of the Na? tional Bank of North America and of malting false entries in tho books of tho bank and. in its reports to the Comptroller of tho Currency. On ap? peal to tho Circuit Court of Appeals his conviction on the false entry charge was affirmed. Ho had boon confined In the Tombs for ton months before ho was taken to Atlanta. No Unubl of Evidence. "Although his conviction technically was on false entries, there Is no doubt as to what tho evldenco showed gen? erally, to-wlt: that Morse was engaged In large private transactions in which tho maintenance of the price of cer? tain stock In the market was of capital Importance to him, nnd he procured control of this particular bank and | other banks for the purpose of doing! tho specific thing mentioned, which | was essential to tho success of his speculations. Tho result of his oper? ations were sovoro losses to tho bank, which forced It Into liquidation. "Morse exhibited the same fraudulent and criminal disregard of the trust imposed upon him in the exercise of j the control over tho bank as Walsh did. j i "Ono of the chief argumonts made In j Morse's behalf Is that 'slnco thu com 1 mission of his offonaea ho has, out] of his own estate, made good the losses Inflicted upon the bank. The evidence doeB not sustain the claim that all the losses to the bank have been made good by him, but even if his estate had met the obligations out of his fraudulent transactions It could not change the necessity for his law? ful punishment for the crime he com? mitted. "Walsh received a sentenco of fivo years?Morse fifteen years. I have no doubt, from a consideration of the facts In each case, that Morse should have received a heavier sentence than Walsh. Whether fifteen years Is too great a sentence I do not now propose to decide. It will depend somewhat upon Morse's future conduct In prison. This application, therefore, Is now de? nied as premature, but may bo re? newed at some subsequent date." "The number of prominent and Influ? ential members of society who have asked for clemency In Morse's case Is quite as great aB In that of Walsh. In my denial of the application in each of these cases I have no desire to mini? mize the weight of the opinion and prayer in favor of clemency of the peti? tioners, but for the same reason that I have given above for differing from them in Walsh's case, I must differ with them In Morse's case. The application for clemency in the case of Charles W. Morse Is hereby denied, with leave to renew the same after January^ 1. 1913.
