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
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."

Proclamation by the Pres

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

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

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
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

neighborhood under the general direc

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 war loan organization has prepared

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

'America—Europe. Distance 200 times

lion of the poster are shown the names
of Serbia, Montenegro, Italy. Rou

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

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.

been printed and will be distributed
in various parts of the country, par

represent the United States army, lu (

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

the building of ships follows : "At the

boust in face of the fucts. Instead of

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

poster pointed out that If every per

grams of food a day that the American
reinforcements could be increased a

line on this poster was "Does France
want wheat or men?" and the German
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

caused by an Inflamed condition of the

When this tube Is inflamed you have a

when it is entirely closed. Deafness is the
result. Unless the Inflammation can be re
