OF MOTHERHOOD Enhanced By Perfect Physi cal Health. The experience of Motherhood is a try ing one to most women and marks dis t , nc tly an epoch in their lives. Not one •sv man in a hundred is prepared or un derstands how to properly care for her ee.:. Of course nearly every woman i wadays has medical treatment at such , - es, but many approach the expen se with an organism unfitted for the tr.ai of strength, and when it is over c r system has received a shock from ich it is hard to recover. Following r -1 upon this comes the nervous strain rf caring for the child, and a distinct .ge in the mother results. T..ere is nothing more charming than b happy and healthy mother of children, gr ’d indeed child-birth under the right c i tions need be no hazard to health or beauty. The unexplainable thing is that, with all the evidence of shattered r . . r and broken health resulting from repared condition, and with am r . time in which to prepare, women t i persist in going blindly to the trial. E ery woman at this time should rely t: n Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable und, a most valuable tonic and rator of the female organism.

Assuming that the German subma r s are based at Zeetrugge, the time q aired for the passage to and from ckading stations off the ports of Great Britain would be about four days. The average time necessary for overhauling at the base between trips may be estimated at six days, and the time which may be spent at sea be tween visits to the base cannot well exceed twenty days. Consequently it would be impracticable to maintain more than about half of the total force of submarines on blockading stations. There are forty-nine ports on the coasts of England, Scotland, and Wales which it would be necessary for the German submarines to blockade if all supplies are to be cut off. An effective blockade of any port could scarcely be maintained in the face of defensive operations, which must be expected, with less than three submarines, and double that number would be none too many. If the min imum number of three boats be al lowed for each port, the Germans would require at least 147 constantly on station to close all the ports of ritain; that is, allowing for the ry passage time to and from use and the essential overhaul u g [ riod. the total force should be - 1 submarines. —World’s Work.

VARSITY WANTS $5,259,670 The Allowance Carried by the Bill Is $765,594 Less Than the University Authorities at First Requested. Madison, August 10, 1915. That the legislature will adjourn sine die on Aug. 20 is now the general opinion. The work of the session has reached such a stage a fairy accurate estimate can be made as to the time when the members can go home for good. The work of the two houses will be completed by the latter part of next week. Then the governor will have six days in which to decide what he will do with the bills sent to him. Get ting bills to him will take several days, hence it is safe to put the final adjournment about ten days after the last bill has been passed by the legis lature. When this has been done most of the members will go home, leaving a few of each house to remain and adjourn. Should there be delays, due to vetoing of any of the appropriation bills by the governor, that time will have to be added. In such case it might be near ly Sept. 1 1 before the legislature ad journed. Taxpayers May Get Relief. It begins to look as though the tax payers of the state might be given some relief before the appropriation bills go into effect. The only thing that will continue the load is a failure on the part of the leg islature to pass any appropriation bill, when the continuation appropriation would prevent any reduction of the load to the taxpayers. It is these same appropriation bills which will hold up the session, if it should be held up farther than is now T contemplated. The governor will not accept any bills that do not conform to what he believes to be proper appro priations for the various departments. Unless the bills come to him in a rea sonable shape they will not meet his approval and the legislature will have the task of doing its work over again, which would mean delay of some days at least. The joint finance committee, after conferring with President Van Hise, and Business Manager H. J. Thorkel son of the state university, decided to report back to the senate without change, the bill appropriating $5,259,- 670 for the university during the next two years. This meant that the orig inal recommendation of the commit tee that the bill be passed as first re ported in, stands. The appropriation carried by the bill is $765,594 less than university author ities at first requested. Individual members of the finance committee re served the right to offer amendments on the floor of the senate to cut or increase certain items in the bill if they should desire. Dr. W. H. Allen of the governor’s office was present at the finance com mittee conference and showed the committee that the bill would give the university $576.157 more for operation, apparatus and maintenance than it spent for those purposes during the last two years. It is expected that, in view of Dr. Allen’s statement, some senators will offer amendments to cut the total appropriation when the bill comes up for consideration. Spent $3,266,569 for Operation. During the last two years the univer sity spent for operation, exclusive of so-called revolving funds derived from fees and sales of property and supplies and similar purposes, $3,266,569. The bill as recommended by the finance committee, on the same basis of figur ing. carries $3.625,950 for operation for the next two years. This means that the bill carries for operation $362,411 more than was expended for that pur pose during the last two years. It was shown before the finance com mittee that there was an unexpended balance in the operation account of $108,447. It also was shown by undi puted figures that the allowance by the finance committee bill for mainte nance is $9,602 more than the amounts expended for maintenance in the last two years. To add to this there is an unexpended balance in this fund of 55.737. There is an unexpended bal ance in the apparatus fund of $47,000. Concur in Assembly Cut. The senate concurred in the assem bly amendment to the appropriation bill for the industrial commission. This bill, which originally appropri ated SIIO,OOO annually, was amended by the assembly to 571.425.69 for 1915, Organize Electrical Company. Wausau. —The Marion Electrical company will be organized this month by Wausau men at a capitalization of SIO,OOO. The company will "build a combustion oil engine plant. Paul Reiehe will be manager. Plant Bass at Oconomowoc. Oconomowoc —Fifteen cans of bass fry from the state fish hatchery at Del afield were placed in Fpwler and La Belle lakes at Oconomowoc by Dr. George Meyer. Tear Down Old Bridge. Wausau. —The old wooden bridge icross the Wisconsin river at Mosi r.ee, which has been there nearly a half a century, is being torn down. A $25,000. six span steel truss bridge will be built. Stock Fair Is Success. Peshtigo.—With a reorganization of the management, increased ground space and shed accommodations the Feshtigo monthly stock fair and mar ket day is proving a big success. Boy Bandit* Rounded Up. Racine.— Detective Edward Sehu maker has rounded up a gang of des perate juvenile thugs who have com mitted a number of robberies in the last few weeks. The oldest is 14 years old. Oldest Pilot Is Dead. Portace.— Capt. Snyder, the oldest river pilot in the state, died suddenly at Kflboum. He was captain ot the passenger steamer Appolo in the \Us concin dells many year.- and SIOO,OOO annually thereafter. The total cut is about SIB,OOO from the amount allowed by the finance com mittee. The amendment was con curred in, 14 to 13. The amendment in'the assembly to the civil service bill, which cuts the appropriation from $22,000 to $13,000 for 1915 and to $20,000 annually there after, was nonconcurred in by the sen ate, 6 to 22. The finance committee reported for indefinite postponement the bill pro viding for normal schools in the north eastern part of Wisconsin. The senate amendment to the Mul uerger bill, relating to the seining of rough fish in inland waters of the state was concurred in Assembly Passes Fair Fund. The assembly amended and con curred in the Everett bill appropriat ing $255,000 for permanent improve ments on the state fair grounds in Mil waukee. Earlier in the day the as sembly concurred in the Whitman bill appropriating $35,000 to pay the in debtedness incurred by the old .state board of agriculture in conducting the last state fair. As the amendment to the Everett bill does not change the amount of appropriation carried by it, the senate is expected to concur in the amendment. This means that the new state department of agriculture will start out with a clean slate and with sufficient funds to give a good fair next month and make the needed improvements on the grounds during the next four years. The amendment to the Everett bill, which was offered by Mr. Woodward in accordance with another under standing reached at a conference of members of the legislature with Gov. Philipp, provides that SIO,OOO shall be immediately available for repairs, construction of fences and the enclos ure of open structures on the fair grounds. The rest of the appropriation, amounting to $245,000, is not to be available until the department of agri culture certifies in writing to the sec retary of state and state treasurer that Milwaukee county has conveyed to the state a tract of land of sufficient area and proper location to be added to the state fair grounds for state fair purposes and that the deeds of con veyance have been approved by the at torney general. The senate passed the following hills. Making appropriations to satisfy claims arising out* of the slaughter of tubercular cattle; 838A, relating to payments by counties of awards made by the industrial commission under the workmen’s compensation act; S39A, relating to the speed of motor vehicles which must not be greater than ten miles when passing; appro priating $45,000 for the geological and natural history survey; relating to the date of the annual school district meeting; relating to special school aid to be paid certain teachers; this gives sums from $5 to sls a month to teach ers who remain for a certain length of time; relating to lights on motor vehicles; these must be shut off where they are dazzling, when machines pass each other. t Philipp Vetoes Bill Already Law. Gov. Philipp returned to the senate the bill, 6445, without his approval. This bill related to the borrowing of money by villages for building sewers and drains. The governor gave as his reason for the ve?> that another bill, 791A, on the same subject had already been passed and signed by him, and there was no necessity of two acts on the same subject. Senator Whitman introduced a bill by unanimous consent which will per mit the State Firemen’s association, which receives state aid, to get an ap propriation by Sept. 1. The bill pro vides that the association makes its report by Aug. 1 and the money com ing to it be paid by Sept. 1. As it is now the association does not receive its appropriation for a year after holding its tournament. The assembly concurred in the sen ate resolution of appreciation of the public services of P. Stephen Tripp, Sauk City banker and legislator, who recently died and left A legacy of $500,000 to the University of Wiscon sin. A motion hv Assemblyman Pieper was adopted hereafter to message im mediately to the senate all bills and resolutions passed. Heretofore bills and resolutions have been retained in possession of the assembly twenty-four hours after being acted on, thus giv ing a chance to reconsider action be fore the measures go out of control of the house. Confer on Appropriation. Gov.'Philipp. President Van Hise of the university and Speaker L. C. Whit tet of the assembly held a conference in the governor's office on the appro priation bill for support of the univer sity during the next two years. Anti administration senators are expected to try to have the appropriation car ried by the bill increased when it comes up for consideration, while ad ministration senators will try to keep it where it is or have it reduced some what. The bill carries an appropria tion equal to the amount expended for operation, maintenance and apparatus during the last two years. School Board Head Buried. Peshtigo.—The funeral of R. C.

HARVEST HEAVY DESPITE STORMS WISCONSIN WILL HAVE RECORD CROP THIS FALL ACCORD ING TO REPORT. DAMAGE WILL BE SMALL Prof. Moore Says Grains Had Filled Before Winds Caused Lodging— Means a Little More Work in Harvesting. Madison. —Wisconsin will harvest record crops this fall despite bad storms, according to Prof. R. A. Moore, agronomy department, college of agri culture. The rains will make harvest ing more difficult, and will probably injure their quality to some extent, hut the yields of barley, wheat, rye and oats throughout the state are expected to be as large as last year. “Most of the rye, wheat and barley had filled before the storms,” said Prof. Moore, “and so I do not appre hend that as much tlamage has been done as first believed. With modern methods of harvesting and a little ex tra labor, it will be possible for the far mer to cut his grain even though it may be lodged pretty badly.” The discoloration of the grain re sulting from the abundance of mois ture will not cause a great loss, Prof. Moore believes, as most of the grain is marketed through the farm animals of the state. “I think that when the threshing re ports come in, the yield of grain will surpass that of last year,” he said. A larger acreage of clover and alfal fa has just been harvested than ever before, he added. The new seedings of clover and alfalfa look exceedingly favorable as they do better in cool, moist weather. Corn is behind, but is coming along rapidly now. TO HOLD MEET AT OSHKOSH Plans Being Made by State Retail Mer | chants’ Association for Fifteenth Annual Session.

We can hardly realize that of all the children bom in civilized countries, twenty-two per cent., or nearly one-quarter, die before they reach one year ; thirty-seven per cent., or more than one-third, before they are five, and one-half before they are fifteen 1 We do not hesitate to say that a timely use of Castoria would save a majority of these precious lives. Neither do we hesitate to say that many of these infantile deaths are occasioned by the use of narcotic preparations. Drops, tinctures and soothing syrups sold for children’s oomplaints contain more or less opium or morphine. They are, in considerable quantities, deadly poisons. In any quantity, they 6tupefy, retard circulation and lead to congestions, sickness, deatn. Castoria operates exactly the reverse, but you must see that it bears the signature of Chas. H. Fletcher. Castoria causes the blood to circulate properly, opens the _ pores of the skin and allays fever. jt Genuine Castoria always bears the signature of /-C6tcA6f£. GOES THROUGH THE MOTIONS But Smokers Will Wonder How That Tobaccoless Pipe Must Taste to Him. M. Maeterlinck is among those who have freed themselves from the band age of tobacco by. means of a curious artifice. According to his biographer. M. Gerard Harry, “without the help of tobacco he seemed incapable of re ceiving inspiration or crystallizing it in words. If he has not overcome the need, he has outflanked it. Smoking, he noticed, had lost its virtue as a stimulant, and instead of rousing the brain to activity, as at first, had come to disturb its functions; so now, in lieu of ordinary tobacco, he fills his bowl with a denicotinized preparation, tasteless indeed, but harmless. His pipe is still always alight when the pen is busy, but it is hardly more now than a mere subterfuge intended to cheat and so satisfy an irresistible mechanical craving.”—London Chron icle.

The thrilling story of a narrow es cape from being ingulfed by a huge waterspout off Diamond Shoal light ship was told by the crew of the Brit ish steamship Gordon Castle, which has arrived here from Beira, South Africa, the Philadelphia North Ameri can states. Captain Gardner oaid the waterspout was about 3,060 feet high and 30 feet thick. The ship was caught in the grip of a northwest gale recently. Huge waves swept over the deck. Suddenly, said Captain Gard ner, a hiss like escaping steam was heard. “Then," said the captain, "we saw a great white column of whirling water spinning over the ocean. The rush of the whirlwind that created the spout made us cling to the rail for safety. The course of the Gordon Castle was changed and the spout passed within ten feet of the ship.” Swamped. “I had the deuce of a time talking to Miss Gadders last evening.” “Thought you were a conversation alist.” “I couldn’t get in a word.” There are 50,000 post offices in Ger many. Planting Sugar Cane. Sugar cane is planted, not sown. A small piece of the cane, long enough to include two or three of the rings, or nodes, is laid lengthwise, or stuck in a slanting direction, along a fur row which runs the length of the field. In some sections the primitive fashion of planting in holes is still em ployed. When the trench is planted the pieces of cane are lightly covered with earth. In a few weeks they show growth above the ground, the germ budk a’ the rings having begun to shoot out in the form of young cane, the ring having at the same time thrown out rootlets into the soil. The parallel trenches are m d< far enough apart, say at least three feet, to en able the workers, when the wide spreading canes are getting ripe, to go between the rows and remove the dying leaves which burden the ripen ing cane, thereby enabling the naked cane to mature faster.

MADE PROFIT OF HIS VISIT Unexpected Call of Paderewski Turned to Good Account by Music Teacher. Paderewski arrived in a small west ern town about noon one day and de cided to take a walk in the afternoon. While strolling along he heard a piano and, following the sound, came to a house on which was a sign reading: “Miss Jones. Piano Lessofla 25 Cents an Hour.” Pausing to listen, he heard th young lady trying to play one of Cho pin’s nocturnes and not succeeding very well. Paderewski walked up to the house and knocked. Miss Jones came to the door and recognized him at once. De lighted, she invited him in and he sat down and played the nocturne as only Paderewski can, afterward spending an hour in correcting her mistakes. Miss Jones thanked him and he de parted. Some months afterward he returned to the town and again took the same walk. He soon came to the home of Miss Jones and. looking at the sign, read: “Miss Jones. Piano Lessons $1 an Hour.
