In a small west Texas town out in the Cap Roc* country Interest was centered about the registration booth and the atmosphere was becoming pretty solemn and funeral when a well-setup cowman clicked up to the official in charge and gave a well known name. Glibly answering the questions put to him, he was met with the ques tion : "Ever have an accident?” “Accident? Nope.” “Never had an accident in your life?” “Nope.

The kidneys seem to suffer most, as al most every victim complains of lame back and urinary troubles which should not be neglected, as these danger signals often lead to more dangerous kidney troubles. Dr. Kilmer’s Swamp-Root which, so many people say, soon heals and strength ens the kidneys, is a splendid kidney, liver and bladder medicine, and, being an herbal compound, has a gentle heal ing effect on the kidneys, which is al most immediately noticed in most cases by those who use it. A trial will convince anyone who may be iu need of it. Better get a bottle from your nearest drug store, and start treat ment at once.

CHICAGO GATUN LAKE IS BIG AFFAIR Reservoir, Built by Americans, Far Outdoes Anything Else That the World Has Known. The government fisheries bureau Is planting Gatun lake with fishes. The first shipment for the purpose, made by steamer the other day, consisted of catfish, sunfisb, carp and black bass, all of “fingerling” 3ize. The buss were planted in the Chagres river, the prin cipal tributary of the lake. A Pharaoh of the twelfth dynasty constructed a reservoir (known today as Lake Mtferis) which covered <33 square miles. It was an artificial lake, regarded in its day as one of the wonders of the world, and was de signed to regulate the flow of the Nile. ,‘n its way it was the most remark able engineering achievement of an tiquity. But Gatun lake, on the line of the Panama canal, beats It. being about Ihree times as big. Its object is similar—namely, to rake care of the flood waters of the Chagres river and prevent them from doing mis chief. Gatun lake is the largest artificial body of water ever known in the world. It is, in fact, the most impor tant feature of the transisthmian canal, extending two-thirds of the dis tance from the Caribbean sea to the Pacific ocean. It occupies a basin that was dry land before the canal was built; and because the area covered by it is very hilly and topographically irregular, it stretches in a multiple of arms far up into its marshy shores. One reason why Its shores are marshy is that in its shallows there develops with astonishfng luxuriance a kind of grass which sends out run ners in ali directions. On this account its hanks tire not easily accessible* even to small craft. As for fishes, it is hoped that they will multiply and furnish a worth while food supply. “Hush Hush!” Cruiser. The idea that Great Britain is se cretly constructing tremendous cruis ers, carrying batteries of 15-inch guns and traveling faster than any na val ships now float, has become almost an obsession with the Ger man press, whose naval experts recognize that these ships present a problem that cannot be met with submarines. The new British cruisers are termed “hush hush” cruisers be cause of the supposed secrecy with which they are being constructed. Cap tain von Kuhlwntter, a famous Ger man naval authority, believes them to be 88fi feet in length and probably more effective naval units than any yet constructed. No doubt the prime j cause of interest in their building is the realization that a complete fleet of fast cruisers could annihilate a whole squadron of slow and ponderous Ger man dreadnoughts if the German fleet ever again aspires to the open sea. In the Jutland and other fights such c. unit of fast and heavily armed ships might have cut off their retreat. That England is constructing a number of large battle cruisers of anew type is not denied by the admiralty. Appearances Were Against Her. An amusing story was told to me the other day concerning Lady Sybil Grant, daughter of the earl of Rose bery. If,appears that her ladyship, who is an enthusiastic war worker, recently assisted in waiting upon some wound ed soldiers at a concert and tea got up for their entertainment. At the close of the meal one of the guests, not in the least realizing who she was. shyly offered her a tip, which was politely declined. "I really don’t ueed it, you know,” said Lady Sybil smilingly, “I’ve got plenty of money. “Is that so?” exclaimed the soldier, in tones of evident surprise, allowing his gaze to rest on the plain linen overalls she had donned for the oc casion. “You’ve got plenty of money, have you ?” Lady Sybil nodded assent. “Well, miss,” was the somewhat dis concerting reply, “you’ll excuse me saying so, won’t you? But —you don’t look it.”—Pearson’s Weekly. Three Seasons in Year. The Egyptian year was divided into three seasons. These were Shalt, the season of waters, being the time occu pied by the rising spread and reces sion of the Nile: Pirut, the season of vegetation ; the Shonntu. the season of harvest. These seasons a*-e supposed to have been arranged b’’ the god Tliot. Each season was divided into four months and they were known in official documents by numbers only. Thus we have the first, second, third and fourth months of Sliait. the months of each of tltc other seasons being designated in tlie same manner. Each month, how ever. had a patron god and the people ordinarily gave to it. in their daily in tercourse. the name of its god. These deity names of the months were tran scribed into Greek, then info Arabic and are now largely used by the Chris tian inhabitants of Egypt in prefer ence to the Mussulman appellations. Faith.

DISCUSSED BY CHAMP CLARK Drift From the Farm to the City Not Confined to Any Color, Race or Lo cality—Starting Liberty Loan Cam paign in Washington. BY ARTHUR W. DUNN. Washington.—Of course Mi*, bi i job which ilie United Sta es now nus on hand is winning the war, but there are several big problems to solve which ought to be engaging the nt teniion of those who are not devoting their energies to war work. In a way quite a number of men have been try ing to solve the greatest of a l ' prob lems that confront this country, which is the depopulation of the farms and tlte influx of rural people to the cities. Speaker Champ Clark has a clear idea about what is going on and can ! give tlie causes, but as yet has not been able to offer a solution of the problem. The speaker takes his own congressional district as an example and he points out that little towns j throughout his district do not grow 1 because small manufacturing plants j cannot thrive in the smaller cities and towns. One reason is because they cannot get sufficient railroad accom modations and if located on one line of road they have been squeezed In the matter of freights. But the main trouble is that manufacturing plants in small places cannot maintain a scale of wages or hold skilled labor. Their best men gravitate to the cities where they meet their own kind of people and where they seem better satisfied. “There is scarcely an agri cultural county in the United States.” said the Speaker, “which has not lost ‘ popuia.ion in the last ten years.” Speaker Clark cannot see that the war is going to make any difference with the present condition, nor does he believe that the men who come hack from the war will want to go to the country and live on farms. He thinks that there is a general tend ency on the part oi the people in the country districts to move to the cities, and although he recognizes it is a very serious question, he has not figured out a remedy. He spokk of a very interesting phase of the colored situation in a number of states and particularly in Missouri. He said that the negroes gravitate to the river towns. “It must be that there is some affinity between a nigger aud a catfish,” said the speaker, “for they have left good places to go to towns along the riv ers. I know of places where .they could find employment for every mem ber of the family, have a cabin and an acre of land where they could run a little farm of their own, and yet they pull up stakes and go to the river towns." It would thus appear that the drift from the farms is not confined to any color or race. The third Liberty Loan campaign started in Washington with a bang on the anniversary of our declaration of war against Germany. The celebra tion commenced officially when Mary Bickford, Charlie Chaplin, “Doug” Fairbanks and Marie Dressier ap peared on the steps at the east front of tlie cupitol, on the spot where pres idents of the United States stand when they take the oath of office at j their inaugurations. A goodly number of senators and congressmen, together with several thousand Washingtonians, \ were there to see what their movie favorites looked like in the flesh, and it was amusing to see the chagrin of some of ihe legislators at being forced to play second fiddle, so far as pop ular interest was concerned. “Little Mary’ proved herself to be a better bond salesman than any mere con gressman, however, by raking in over j $1,600,000 in the one day. When the country is at war and the interests of rhe whole peo- I pie are bound up in the success of the nation in that war. it may seem strange that such drastic legislation is necessary as that which has been pro posed and so strongly advocated in both houses of congress. Looking hack through the vista of years it is easy to explain why “copperheads” existed in iii* northern states during the Civil war. Those men not only had preju dices against war. but they believed states had a right to secede. But when there is no question of the rights of states, and further, there is no ques tion as to the great disaster defeat for the American arms would be to the notion, it is certainly amazing that the government is obliged to go farther than it ever did before in order to pur down treason and sedition. But this fact stands out boldly: Whatever legislation is necessary to maintain the government in the pros ecution of the war will be enacted even if it goes to the extent of cloth'ng the president with stilt greater power than he now lias. The people throughout the country who are guilty of foment- j iitg treason and sedition are responsi-' ble for the drastic legislation which has been enacted and which will be enacted in the future.

The smallest bill against the <tate of Rhode Inland to appear in the house was passed recently, the meas ure being a resolution for the payment of sundry accour.tr! to a company amounting to 42 cents. Senator Irvine L. Lenroot finds it, the senate a number of his former in surgent friends. Gronna of North Da kota. Norris of Nebraska, Poindexter of Washington and Townsend of Mich igan were all a part of that body of insurgent Republicans who unhorsed Uncle Joe Cannon In the Sixty-first congress. In fact, Norris was the lead er of the insurgents. Since then Town send lias become more or less regular while a member of rhe house and he rvas considered one of the Republican leaders under tlie management of Jim Mann. The Republicans have no doubt of his regularity when be takes bis seat in the senate. It tnkes more than tlie mere state ment, “It will help win the war,” no matter how often made or how loud it is shouted, to convince an old stager like Uncle Joe Cannon that a propo sition is worthy. Younger members may feel reluctant about opposing a bill if its proponents bowl “war ne cessity” loud enough, but the ex-speak er wants to be shown. He recently expressed his opinion in this respect, and there is no doubt that Uncle Joe’s opinions get more respectful md at tentive consideration to the squure inch than those of any other legisla tor at the eapitol. It came at the end of one member's passionate appeal it) which tlie Stars and Stripes were waved and the eagle screamed, and rhe burden of his scream was. “Pass this bill for the boys ‘over there.’ ” “Of course,” remarked Uncle Joe, emphatically, “everything that comes now comes in the name of ‘the boys in the trenches.’ Certainly they are to be cared for and .cared for well. Some times I think that if we could be a lit tle more practical and find out what the bi’.s we consider mean, maybe the boys in the trenches would get along better Ilian if we should merely be using language; it is action, not words, we desire.” With tlie statement of Majority Leader Kitchtn ringing in its ears, to the effect that congress would be able to adjourn by July 1 if it attends strict ly to business from now on, the house removed its fists from its eyes and stopped bawling about politics and in competence long enough to pass 11 mil itary bills in one day recently. Most of these bills were rather unimportant, but two or three involved good-sized appropriations or changes in policy. Nevertheless the house seemed to be more or less fascinated by the idea of a midsummer adjournment, with pros pects of four months’ political “skull busting” before tlie November elec tions, and the usual flow of useful lan guage was not in evidence. But whether tlie effort will last or not is another story. | Never an issue of the Congres sional Record these days but ihere are remarks which “deplore partisan criticism,” and also assertions to the effect that “this is not time for partisan discussion.” At the same time, as the election gets nearer and nearer there is an increase of partisan discussion. Naturally the attacks come from the Republicans. They belong to the opposition party. They are the ‘‘outs.” They must find enough faults with the “ins” to convince the people that there should be a change when they go to the polls next November. Asa consequence the “deploring” speeches come largely from the Demo cratic side in both senate and house. At the same time it is observed that the Democrats do not hesitate to at tack tlie Republicans whenever an op portunity affords. The Republicans claim they have an excellent excuse for exhibiting partisanship on account of the strong support which President Wilson and the entire Democratic ad ministration gave to Joseph Davies, who was Democratic candidate for sen ator ip Wisconsin. With an election co.ning on, it is impossible to keep partisanship out of congressional de bates. * There are a lot of “whipping boys" connected with the administration. Readers of history know that as soon as parliamentary bodies or ministries became responsible to some extent for carrying on tlie affairs of a govern ment. and even before, when rhe mon arch was primarily responsible for everything, the opponents never at tacked the head of the administration directly but severely castigated the “king’s advisers.” Rarely do the opponents of the ad ministration say much in criticism di rectly of the president, but they do “take it out " on one or more of the “whipping boys.” A few years ago it was Josephus Daniels of the navy de partment who was the prime “whip ping hoy” of the Wilson administra tion. Since the war began Secretary Baker lias been the principal “whip ping boy,” and at various intervals Herbert Hoover, the food administra tor; Doctor Garfield, the fuel admin istrator, and George Creel, the chief of the bureau of information. Each in his turn takes his place as “whipping boy” and very severe things sre said about these men, not only by Republi cans opposed politically to the admin istration, but by many Democrats.
