Petrograd, May 2.—A. project to in stitute compulsory state fire insurance is now under consideration by the minister of the interior, and will be Boon presented to the council of min isters for approval. The proposal was first made by the budget committee of the Duma, which pointed out the de sirability of such a measure as a source of income to the government. According to the preliminary esti mates, if this fire insurance monopoly Were undertaken by the government. It would yield an annual income of fifteen million dollars. The minister of the interior, however, is in favor of the passing of such a measure, not primarily because it would bring a la rgc revenue to the government, but because compulsory insurance is de manded by the condition of the ma jority of buildings in Russia, which *re wooden and but poorly protected -t^ainst fire.

London, May 2.—The use to which German meteorologists are putting the Belgian Royal Observatory at Uccle, a suburb of Brussels, is told in the Gazette Astronomique, now published in London by the AstTonomical society of Antwerp. When the Belgian army retired from Brussels, a German force took posses sion of the observatory and put four German scientists in charge, to take weather observations for the informa tion of the army aeronautic force. The Belgian astronomers were allowed to remain, subject to certain restric tions. The German army meterologists were observed filling with hydrogen small rubber balloons to get the di rection and velocity of the air currents in the upper atmosphere. At night the balloons carried an electric poc ket lamp forming an artificial star. Similar observations were made by stations at Liege, Xamur, and other points in the conquered territories, be ing collected and collated in Berlin for the use of commanders of and aeroplane units.

May 2.—Prohibition of the sale of vodka and other intoxicating drinks has affected a striking reduc tion of the business of the municipal pawnshops. Notwithstanding the hi$h prices of foodstuffs and clothing en tailed by the war, the population is steadily losing its dependence upon these institutions, as is showi by the following figures: For the first quarter of 1JU4, the municipal pawnshops made 204,403 loans, aggregating 51,222,143. During the correspondig quarter of the iresent year, there wa-e contract ed 128,010 loans, totaling $83G,857.

In Odessa his reception was tremendously enthusiastic, although the city is strongly liberal and has never been noted for any perfervid loyalty to the empire. The emperor drove through streets lined with cheering crowds. He wore a simple service uniform, with the khaki-colored blouse of a Russian officer of ordinary rank. He rode in an automobile, attended by a single aide. During his progress across the city he threw etiquette and tradition to the winds and stood up in his car, hat in hand, bowing and smiling to the cheering crowds. In a central square the emperor stepped out of his automobile and in« spected the local troops. It was no perfunctory ceremony. At a There was absolute silence for Bucharest, April 28.—The Turkish ministry of war places the total of men under arms at present at 1,322,000. More conservative estimates in Con stantinople give the number as 800,000. This includes 200,000 christians who are being used for digging trenches and building railways, roads and bridges. The actual fighting men are divided into five armies. The first, encamped at Adrianople and around Constantino ple under von der Goltz, is said to be about 100,000 strong. The second, un der Djemal Pasha, aims at Egypt with 150,000 men. The third is located around Bagdad with 50,000. The fourth, in the Caucasus, numbers 180,000, while the fifth, estimated at •omething over 100,000, is operating in the vicinity of the Dardanelles. Probably the best equipped troops are gathered around Constantinople, which is also admirably defended by concentric rings of up-to-date fortifi cations. An excellent battery has been placed in position immediately below the mosque of St. Sophia. Although the German advisers of the government have taken over practii il command of military affairs, they make no attempt to meddle in police and civil matters. The press censorship, for ox ample, is under Turkish auspices, and correspondents, even from Germany, are handled ruthlessly. Thus the cor respondents of The Cologne Zeitung and The Deutches Armee Zeitung have been interned at Konia, the correspon dent of The Neue Freie Presse has been condemned to a year's imprisonment, and the representative of The Berlin Tageblatt has been expelled. Paris, May 2.—The annual distrlbu tion of prizes In the public schools, a fete of considerable importance in France, will take place as usual this year, though the children of many lo calities have asked that the money be used for the soldiers at the front and the wounded Instead. All the 6,000,000 pupils receive a book of some sort, the importance of which depends upon scholarship and general conduct. The cost is several million francs annually. The minister of public instruction has decided that the omission of the distribution would be a hardship to em ployes of the publishing houses, and also that the children of France, while mourning the soldiers who have given their lives to the country, should not be weighed down by a cloud of sorrow. He has issued instructins to the public schools to the effect that the day should be made memorable to the children by If You fire troubled with heartbnrr. pises nnd »distressed feeling after eating take* Dyspepsia THE FAKGO FORUM AND DAILY REPUBLICAN, THURSDAY EVENING, MAY 20, 1915. brisk pace he walked along the entire front, stopping now and then to exchange a word with one of the privates. Then he walked back thoughtfully to, the center of the line and made a brief extempore speech. It was without oratorical embroidery, simply worded and matter-of-fact in delivery, but wonderfully effective. He reviewed the history of the war, reminded the men of Russia's glorious past and spoke of the splendid deeds of the army in the present campaigns. "Do as your brothers have done," he said in closing. "Do as they have done on the battlefields of East Prussia, Galicia, and Bukovina. God will watch over you, and Russia will remember you." a full minute after he had finished. Then the silence was broken by the crash of a thunderous chorus of cheers: "'Long live the Emperor. Long live the Little Father.'" During his visit the emperor had an opportunity to show his mastery of English. The British consul-gen eral, accompanied by a delegation of English residents, presented their con gratulations, expressing on behalf of England admiration and appreciation of the Russian army's work. The emperor replied in English: "I thank you sincerely for what you have said. We do not forget how much we in Russia owe to the brave English and French. We are now on the high road to victory, and with the aid of our allies, the common cause shal* speedily triumph." Some idea of the manner in which the emperor's trips through the coun try aim to reach the workmen and common people may be gained from an account of his visit to the Briansk factory at Biejitza. The whole work ing population, numbering nearly 40, 000, turned out to meet him, and a delegation consisting of workmen who have been employed in the factory for at least twenty years, presented him with bread and salt, the traditional emblems of hospitality. "We are happy that you have come," said the leader of the delegation. "We wish you to see our labor, which we are performing joyfully for you and for our dear country, while our chil dren and brothers are fighting on the field of battle." The emperor spent four hours in the factory going through all the work shops and carefully inspecting the progress of the work. Later he visit ed the workmen's quarter, going into several houses and talking with the men's families. Berlin, May 2.—The awarms of crows unusually seen in the vicinity of Berlin have disappeared and are said by the naturalists to have been attracted to East Prussia to feed on the many dead horses found there on battlefield and by the wayside.

The governor's remarks were applauded. Ambassador Naon addressed the legislature by invitation. He spoke for human solidarity of the nations of the earth and said that there would be In the western hemisphere an Anaerican solidarity based on right, on justice, and on reciprocal tolerance that would be an example to the rest of the world. In his address there was a hope ex pressed that the republic of the west ern world would co-operate to bring about a lasting peace among the peo ples of Europe. He said: "In the face of this enormous catas trophe the bearing of America cannot be but expectant and reconstructive, if, as I believe, there is still reason to trust that the Idea of human solidarity is the final end of social evolution. May God grunt that, inspired by that idea and prompted by our community of in terests, all the nations of America be fore long may co-operate in the task, a thousand times blessed, of restoring lasting peace and friendship among the people of Europe, together with the sentiment of that solidarity as the i basis for their future action," i, Monday, M«y 31.

QKW* 4 .# JjX i RE AL full.~f loaling axle You take one of the semi-floating types of axles and the axle shaft not only turns the wheels but carries the weight of the car and also has to take up the side-thrusts. It has THREE tasks laid on that one slender "shaft of steel. And if that shaft breaks off flies the wheel. Two minutes to remove shaft This Studebaker FULL-floating Axle, on the other hand, frees the shaft of everything except the one task of turning the wheels. The axle housing runs thro' the hub and with TWO Timken Bearings in each of the hubs, it rids the axle shaft of the car's weight and the side-thrusts, too. You can take the axle shaft out and the wheel stays on. You can tow the car along with the shaft out of the housing. Take one of the so-called "floating types" of axles, and to remove the shaft, you have to take the wheel off. It's a messy job. But if you happen to have to remove the axle shaft from this Studekaker FULL floating Axle, you simply unscrew 8 nuts and draw the shaft out. Two minutes and a common wrench that's all. —and a STRONG steel housing Take the axle housing of the two types. The "semi-floating type" always has a malleable casting. Now, you know castings are weighty —and, also, they can break. Doesn't take so much to break them, either. But Studebaker uses a steel stamping for the axle housing—with folded edges to re-enforce it. And it is not only LIGHTER but VERY much stronger. But you can't begin to compare the two axles. For the simple reason that the FULL-floating Rear Axle is admittedly so much better that every high-grade, high-priced car uses it. Salesmen for other cars will say: "Oh I yes! we have a floating axle but look at our motor here a minute." Or else they'll try to brazen it out and say that they have so many thousands of cars on the roads and haven't had the slightest trouble. That's just a matter of salesmanship, if you like to call it that. The FACT, as any mechanical engineer will tell you, is that the earlier types of axles, that they call floating types*" are NOT as strong, durable or as accessible. And the thing to do, when you go to look at some other car and the salesman tries to dodge on the matter of rear axles, is to —ask him if his car has a FULL-floating Roar Axle like the Studebaker has, and make him show you.

The Resolution is as follows: "The Fargo Association hears With greatest satisfaction the results of the county option contest in Clay county, in which the cities of Moorhead and Barnesville are located, and desires to go on record as heartily appreciating the work done, and the glorious vic tory won in behalf of sober, clean citizenship and all its attendant bene fits.

Omaha World-Herald: The adver tising columns carry the news that kimonos are marked down from $4 to $2.98. Doubtless many feminine hearts flutter with pleasure at the an nouncement. But many will regard with regret anything that increases the kimono habit. For the kimono in its Americanized translation has degenerated Into a symbol of spineless inefficiency. When a woman is tired or sick or disgusted she sheds her dress and corset and re verts to her kimono. When she is dis appointed or grief-stricken she seeks refuge in her kimono. The kimono is regarded as her best friend by the lazy woman—from the slatternly fe male of the shanty in her limp, faded cotton version to the pampered damo Of the-palatial mansion in her silken version embellished with Japanese embroidery. Whatever the faults and failings of man, this much must be said for him: He dresses completely when he gets up in the morning and stays dressed Cintil he goes to bed at night. All day he is clothed and ready for whatever may befall. Even when the house catches flre at midnight he manages somehow to scramble into his shirt and trousers and appear ready for ac tion. The woman stands ineffectually by clutching at the throat of her kim ono. Can it be that, in this respect, wom an has not evolved as far from the .fig leaf stage of our original ancestors as man, that she is not so much advanced in clothing civilization? Lame Pack.

"Indigestion and practically all forma of stomach trouble are, nine times out of ten, due to acidity therefore stom ach sufferers should, whenever possi ble, avoid eating feod that is acid in its nature, or which by chemical action in the stomach develops acidity. Un fortunately, such a rule eliminates most foods which are pleasant to the taste as well as those which are rich in blood, flesh and nerve building prop erties. This is the reason why dyspep tics and stomach sufferers are usually so thin, emaciated and lacking in that vital energy which can only come from a well fed bo*y. For the benefit of those sufferers who have been obliged to exclude from their diet all starchy, sweet or fatty food, and are trying to keep up a miserable existence on glu ten products, I would suggest that you should try a meal of any food or foods which you may like, In moderate amount, taking immediately afterwards a teaspoonful of blsurated magnesia in a little hot or cold water. This will neutralize any acid which may be ori ent, or which may be formed, and in stead of the usual feeling of uneasiness and fullness, you will find that yoijt food agrees with you perfectly. Blsur ated magnesia is doubtless the best food corrective and antacid known. It has no direct action on the stomach* but by neutralizing the acidity of the food contents, and thus removing the source of the acid irritation which in flames the delicate stomach lining, it does more than could possibly be don« by any drug or medicine. As a physi cian, I believe In the use of mediclni whenever necessary, but I must admit that I cannot see the sense of dosing an inflamed and irritated stomach witb drugs instead of getting rid of the acid caiase of all the trouble. Get s little bisurated magnesia from voui druggist, eat what you want at youi next meal, take some of the bisurated magnesia as directed above, and see li I'm not right"
