There is no scarcity of advice for the railroad problems. Congress pondering over fourteen different solutions that have been otferrd. But no one seems anxious to try working out nny one of the solutions.

Senator Gore, of Oklahoma, chair. man of the Senate Agriculture Com mlttec in nn address in the Senate de clared that the farmers of the United States could rest assured that the Government would keep faith with them In carrying out the guaranty of a price of $2.20 n bushel for wheat. The Government, he said, should pay the difference between the guaran teed price nnd the price dictated by the law of supply nnd demand for to do otherwise would "create a state of unstable economic equilibrium".

The sidewalk around the Kengnr lan Hotel took on n festive air Satur day night, ns about 20 of Lancaster's representative business men walked down the street and filed In at tho door leading to tho table whereon was spread a fish dinner. These din. ners arc always enjoyable but this one was particularly so, as the fish for tho occasion was generously do tinted by Mr. Lewis Gill, from n bar rel of fish sent him by Mr. Cleveland Rose, from Florida. The art of Lrooking fish is well known nt The Kcngarlan, as well as what to serve with it nnd this Jovial nnd congenial crowd always think the last dinner there the best. Until a supply of Red Cross med icines reached them from Archangel, influenia-strlcken people in the Rus sian town of Ponol were without drugs of any sort.

He has often had to march in the mud nnd sleep on the ground and eat "bully beef" out of n tin can. l ou never tried all that. did you? And he swears, sure enough: isn't that the privilege of a soMier? Don't you remember Shakespeare's soldier, "Full of strange oatlis nnd bearded like a pard". and how two hundred years ago the HritUh army "swore terribly in Flan ders ; Hut the doughboy's swearinir is what the French call a "manner of speaking". He uses the words as nn emphasis, without much sense of their original meaning. l es. he is quick-tempered too, nnd we will tnank God for it. Rcmem. ber how the inspiration of righteous anger Joined with spiritual trust in his cause sent him over the top like n flame of fire nt Cantigny, at Soissons, nt Verdun, to work vengence on the cruel of this world nnd protect the. weak. For the rest, our doughboy is a ciean young fellow. He does not drink the army regulations sec to that and protect him also from other forms of vice. Ho is generous and kind to a fault, and possesses a keen sense of humor, with very little use lor hypocrisy in nny form and a strong belief in all manly virtues. Whether marching through France or Belgium or Germany, fighting in the snows of Russia or escorting loads of flour into Vienna, he lias an abid ing faith in the good old United Stat es and n love for home nnd mother. Wo can all take prlue In this mod est young soldier and trust him to carry on the best traditions of our country. Elephants Escape. I WINNIPEG, Canada. Four clo-1 pliants, brought here to perform In a vaudeville theater, broke away from their keepers and made Winnipeg their playground for hours. One of tho animals became wedged between two houses ami pulled part of the walls away with her. She then paid n formal visit to the General Hospital power house, broke in the door with a gentle tap and advanced in a friend ly fashion to meet Engineer J. Krai, who was in charge. Krai rubbed his eyes and disappeared. The animal scratched her back on the switch board, roduclng It to twisted metal. The four truants were finally captur ed. C Lehmann's leg was broken when three of the elephants entered the building he was in and rushed him to tho other side. Car Load of good sound Yellow Corn at $1.65 per bushel. Garrard Milling Co.

Robinson, of this city, has sold his herd Jock, Orphan's Brigade, to W. L. Graham, of Sal- visa, Ky. 1 his jack is six years old, 10.2 hands, with the best of head and n 3G-inch ear, nine inches below knee, best of foot with length as long as you want to express it by lineal measure, hind leg of the best big and straight as n thoroughbred. In this Jack mingles the best blood lines of Missouri and Kentucky, He is sired by Fair Promise by Orphan Boy. This is the culmination of the blood of Orphan Boy, Limestone, Mammoth and many others of Missouri's best families, crossed on to the great Joe Blackburn, backed up by that long remembered Cordcz by Cordizec Imp. It is a known fact that Orphan Boy has made Mr. Monsees of Missouri famous nationwide as a jack breeder. It will nlso be remembered that Joe Blackburn made the late Levi Hubble famous as the greatest breeder of his time in jack history. In the ming ling of these great families, the pro duct was Orphan's Brigade, a great sire on mares and jennets. Price while private is known to be very sat isfactory. It was with much regret that Mr. Robinson parted with this jack. LOYALTY'S LAST LEGS. American loyalty stood the test of tho world war most nobly. Never for an instant was there faltering or hanging back. Always loyalty stepped into the breach; met every demand. And now that the victory is won, that triumph and honor is ours, let us trust that loyalty is not on its last legs. We don't believe, we cannot be lieve that this is so. For Americans have been patriots since the battle of Lexington, Never have they turned their backs upon the enemy, upon their sacred obligations. It's too late to begin now. Uncle Sam shortly will ask us to lend him another $5,000,000,000 that he may appropriately finish the big Job he took in hand after the sinking of the Lusitania. The Job that in- jsured democracy, freedom and liberty for tho world, The Job that meant perpetuity for American institutions, stability for American government, immunity from German tribute, safety for American womankind, nnd protec tion ngainst Hun invasion. If loyalty ever faltered, ever hesi tated, ever questioned, certainly It must react to this demand. For after all it is only a matter of dollars. And dollars, in America, are its cheapest commodity. Fifty thousand American lives wero sacrificed in France. Half a million would have paid the price had the war gone on another tlx months. Compired to this what is $5,000, 000,000! Nothing calculated to stagger American loyalty. Nor will It. Americans will run true to form. They will como through! McQUERRY. Relatives and friends were deeply grieved on last Tuesday morning, February 11th when they learned of the death of Mr. Joe McQuerry and littlo baby, which occurred at their home on the Sugar Creek pike. Mr. McQuerry and the little one were stricken with influenza nnd a few days later pneumonia developed, which caused their death. Mr. McQuerry was a good man, and will be greatly missed, not only by his devoted family, but by Ids neighbors and friends as well. He leaves to mourn his untimely end, a wife and four children, nnd his aged parents, three brothers and four sisters. His remains were laid to rest In the Mt. Hebron cemetery last Wednes day, after short services at the grave. The bereaved ones have the sym pathy of their many friends and neighbors In this their dark hour. 'A precious one from us has gone, A voice wc loved Is still, A place Is vacant In our home, Which never can be filled." ' Card Of Thanks. During the illness and dcnth'of my husband and baby, our neighbors and friends were exceedingly kind and thoughtful and we take this method of expressing to them our henrt-felt thanks and gratitude. Mrs. Lucy McQuerry and children. RAY. On last Wednesday night, Feb. 5th, the death angel visited the home of Mr. Frank Ray and claimed his bless ed nnd beloved wife and mother, Mary Ray. She had been 111 only a few days with Influenza, followed by pneu monia. She was the daughter of the" late John Foster, who preceded her to the grave several years ago. She was 37 years of age. She was united in marriage to Mr. Ray 22 years ago, and to this union were born four chil dren, who were nt her bedside when the end came. They are Monta, James S., Robert and Homer. She also leaves two brothers of this coun ty, Messrs James and Lucas Foster, and two sisters, Mrs. Allen Teatcr and Mrs. Milo Simpson and one bro ther and sister in the West. She united with the Christian church at Antioch in early life, and lived a Christian life, nnd was regular in attendance when her health would permit. There was never a day too bad or a night too dark for her to go to the needs of her friends. The sympathy of the entire com munity goes oit to the grieved family In their loss of wife and mother. Good bye dear Mary, We know that you are gone,, But to that heavenly home, You are gone but not forgotten. A Loving Friend. BRACE UP! Do you feel old before your time? Is your back bent and stiff? Do you suffer urinary disorders? Don't de spair profit by Lancaster experien ces. Lancaster people recommend Doan's Kidney Pills. Here's a Lan caster resident's statement. Mrs. J. W. Pumphrey, Danville St., says: "I suffered with my back and couldn't sleep well at night on ac count of the terrible aching. My back was so painful nnd weak, I couldn't get up and do any house work at nil. I was told of Doan's Kidney Pills nnd got a box. They gave me great relief from the very first." (Statement given March 20, 1908.) STILL PRAISES DOAN'S. On November 18, 1910, Mrs. Pum- phrey said: "I still recommend Doan's Kidney Pills, for they arc the best kidney medicine I have ever used.
