Live Six Months But Doan's Brought Mr. Clayton Health and Strength. C. T. Clayton, 78 N. Broad St., Woodbury, N. J., says: "I had about the worst case of kidney complaint a man could have. My kidneys were In terrible shape. I had sharp, knifelike pains in the small of my back, and my back often gave out entirely. I couldn't stoop to lace my shoes. For two years I was In this helpless condition and didn't do a tap of work and no one thought I would ever be able to work again. In fact, I was told I À - * y Hr. diytu couldn't live six months. But for tunately I began using Doan's Kidney Pills. They made me feel better from the first and after tak ing several boxes, I had better strength and health than ever be fore. I think Doan's are worth their weight in gold, and I recom mend them whenever I hear any one complaining of their kidneys."

Every day the great principles for which we are fighting take fresh hold upon our thought and purpose and make it clearer what the end must be and what we must do to achieve it. We now know more certainly than we ever knew before why free men brought tlie great nation und govern ment we love into existence, because It grows clearer und clearer what su preme service it Is to be America's privilege to render to the world. The anniversary of the discovery of Amer ica must therefore have for us in this fateful year a peculiar and thrilling significance. We should make it a day of ardent rededication to the ideals upon which our government is founded and by which our present heroic tasks are inspired: Now, therefore, I, Woodrow Wilson, President of the United Slates of America, do appoint Saturday, the 12th day of October, 1918, as Liberty day. On that day I request the citizens of every community of the United Stales, city, town and countryside, to cele brate the discovery of our country In order to stimulate a generous response to the Fourth Liberty Loan. Commem orative addresses, pageants, harvest home festivals, or other demonstra tions should be arranged for in every neighborhood under the general direc tion of the secretary of the treasury and the immediate direction of the Liberty Loan committee, in co-opera tion with the United States bureau of education' and the public school au thoritiee. Let the people's response to the Fourth Liberty Loan express the measure of their devotion to the ideals which have guided the country from Its discovery until now, and of their determined purpose to defend them and guarantee their triumph. For the purpose of participating In Liberty day celebrations all employees of the-federal government throughout the country whose services can be spared may be excused on Saturday, the 12th day of October, for the entire day. In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seat of Done in the District of Columbia this 19th day of September in the year the United States to be nftixed. of Our Lord One Thousand Nine Hun dred and Eighteen, and of the Inde pendence of the United States of America the One Hundred and Forty REVEALS FOES' DIRE STRAITS , : third. WOODROW WILSON. By the President : ROBERT LANSING. Secretary of State. 3erman Poster Reproduced by Bureau of Publicity Proof of Shattered Morale of Enemy. A poster recently Issued by the im perial German government in an effort I to belittle the participation of America In the war und thus strengthen the morale of her people form the text of one of the most striking pieces of litera ture that the bureau of publicity of the war loan organization has prepared for use in the forthcoming Fourth Lib erty loan. The center of the poster Is devoted to a drawing showing New York city on one side of the Atlantic and a tre mendous explosion on the other side, probably somewhere in France. Two linking vessels are shown in the lane »f travel between New Y'ork and France, while in the offing are two j U-boats securely afloat. "Opportunity for the German U-boats !" is the catch line for this section of the poster, The lane of travel in which the boats ire sinking bears this inscription : 'America—Europe. Distance 200 times »reater than from England to France mainland." In a corner of this sec lion of the poster are shown the names of Serbia, Montenegro, Italy. Rou aiania, Russia and Belgium. They are lined up in the order named under an ather exploding figure representative of Ihe European war, and the names of all the countries except Italy are crossed out. Indicating that they have been eliminated from the struggle by the Huns. The title of the poster is "Can America's Entry Make a decision of the War?" Integral sections of It attempt to convince the render that America's army cannot take the place of Rus sia's withdrawn forces; that the Unit ed States cannot build enough ships to have any effect on the result of the war, and that the U-boats will destroy virtually all the ships that America can build when those ships at tempt to cross the ocean. Two millions of the booklets have been printed and will be distributed in various parts of the country, par ticularly In theaters where Liberty Loan speakers take the book as their text. Every effort Is made In the wording and the Illustrations of the poster to minimize and ridicule the efforts of the United States in the war. A striking example of this is found in the figure of Uncle Sam. who is pictured as a cadaverous individual who wears an American flag with nine stars and five stripes around his ping hat and smokes long-stemmed cob pipe. He also ap pears to be wearing spats or dancing pumps. The enormous figure of a Russian soldier is the first object on the poster strike the eye. He stands with hands in his overcoat pockets, indica tive of the fact that he Is through fighting. Beside biro stands Uncle Sam holding a small figure, designed to , represent the United States army, lu ( his right hand. In his left hand Oncle Sam carries a banner which bears the Inscription, "America threatens to send transport of one-half million men. But It cannot ship them !" Below Uncle Sam are these words: "It Is Impossible for America to train and fit out In time for the European war a suitable and sufficiently large army and provide It with the necessary re enforcements." The catchline of this section of the poster Is "Russia's army of millions could not down Germany," and on the skirt of the Russian sol dier's overcoat are printed these words: "Russia used up altogether fifteen million men in vnin !" On the opposite side of the poster la this catchline: "England's sea power 1 and England's merchant marine have not decided the war!" Below this line appears a huge figure Intended to represent the English shipping facili ties at the outbreak of the war, which bears these words : "England went into the war with twenty million gross registered tons of freight space." Alongside this figure of a ship is a drawing designed to show Uncle Sam carrying the United States tonnage un der his left arm. The caption above Uncle Sara reads : "Can America re place England on sea?" On the «hip which Uncle Sam carries is printed this inscription : "Three million gross registry tons" and below that is an other inscription which says: "At tha beginning of the war America had on ly a tonnage of three million gross reg istered tons." Commenting on these statements, the poster further declares "America cannot increase her gross registered tons for 1918 by more than two to two and a half million tons. Gur U-boats sink twice as quickly as England and America can build !" The answer of the publicity bureau to the two sections of the poster refer ring to the transportation of men and the building of ships follows : "At the moment the bulletin bpards of Ger many scoffed the possibility of Amer ica sending a force to France, there were already more than a million fight men overseas, and transports, walled about by the American navy de fying the cowardly submarines, were bearing every mouth hundreds of thousands more. The gauge is «et and the summer of 1919 will see 4,000.000 ins fighting American men In France. Nor wiH there be u lack ()f stl | ps to , rau9 . The Liberty port and sustain them.

"The distance from New York to England, the Boche points out," com ments the bureau of publicity publi cation, "is two hundred times greater than that from England to France, from which he spells 'Opportunity fur the German U-boats.' Pitiful Is this boust in face of the fucts. Instead of the U-boat being an unconquerable engine of war, as the Hun confidently expected, it has become the slinking foe of fishing smacks a:-1 other iso lated craft. The vast army of Liberty !*<>nd buyers, thirty millions strong, has built an unbroken bridge over Hie Atlantic ocean into the heart of the enemy's strongholds, bridge there are streaming' our mil lions of fighting men, as good as the world has ever known, munitions and equipment that have been wrought by those back home, whose determination is that the American fighting man shall lack nothing that he needs." As a back-handed slap at the French, the German propagandists have repro duced a French poster which pleads with French people to eat less in or der that ihe United States may seod over more mat* power. The French poster pointed out that If every per son in France would snve a hundred grams of food a day that the American reinforcements could be increased a division a month. The French catcli line on this poster was "Does France want wheat or men?" and the German Across this poster remarks "Also the allies are now beginning to have their doubts!" In a further effort to convince the German people that It will be impos sible for the United States to trans port troops to France, the German section of the poster says that ten of required for rage which \v>H precede the victorious thrust of ou' army." every soldier in crossing the water. The truth is that a soldier requires less than one-half this amount of space. Summing up all the falsehoods which the German poster contains, the look let says: "The War Lord of Ger many may have the futile hope that his people will devour In the place of food, such statements as the forego ing. Falsehoods, however, are poor substitutes and are likely to aggra * ate rather than appease when the de luded people of Germany learn that every requirement of the American soldier will be met by hls patriotic and unqualified support hack home. If a single soldier required ten tons of freight space. It would be given him But the truth Is he requires less than one-half of that. "As for Germany's statement that even if the United States built from two and a half million gross régis tered tons In 1918, It would not mean deliverance for the allies, no further comment is needed than that by July of this year the 2.000,000-tnn mark has been passed. If further refu tal'on of the Hun boast of his U-boat prowess were needed. It might be stated that less than 500 American soldiers hnve lost their lives In the present war ns a result of U-boat at tacks." »'losing ihe booklet Is this striking quota Hi n from Secretary MeAdoo: "The Fourth Liberty loan Is the bar | I j I Children Cry For let Contents 15 Fluid Praehn I I I ALCOHQL"3 per cent. « f Avertable PreparationfbrAs similalin^thcFood by Recula 1 tuigtheStanAclis A IT« i Thereby Promoting Di£<rfü° n Cheerfulness and RcstCootaas \ neither Opium, Morphine nor \ Mineral.
