~. "Washington, sept, it?when a
distinguished mission is expected in ;
i a European capital, especially where
'" the countries are or were monarchies,!
i the question of hom ing them i- simple.
^".Some executive in the department j
"fer foreign affair:, presses a button, ]
summons a functionary, yawns wearily
?nd says: "Which palaces are unoccti-!
^ plod?"
1 He gets tho list, picks one and says: i
"prepare this one for use by the |
mission next week."
And the thing is Hied -no worry,
no flurry a nice old pulacc, with traditions
and spooks and secret chambers,
all ready for occupancy.
V But it's different her We do not1
own pnh'.ces. V/o give our president a
nice white colonial hous in a modest
i park, compared t;? what our millionair\
08 own. And v;e say to our vice pn sident
and cabinet officers: "Go cha.-e
yourselves. -We pay you $12,000 a year
Find your own home and furnish it."
' So, when we went into this war and
j a flood of missions came to our shores,
\ the problem of trow to house thorn
j was a serious one. Hut it. v.-us solved.
; thanks-to the tact that Washington in
the past few years has become a favorite
dwelling place of the rich. Their

, Accusations of Barbarous
I Treatment Not Lacbinir
( In Proof
Since the outbreak ot hostilities.in
Europe much has l)eeu printed relative
to acts of barbaric bate, especially (lur
ing the initial weeks of the struggle,
and it is authoritatively stated that
BUch acts did occur, despite denial.
, In one instance where a wounded
| soldier was discovered baked to death
in a huge oven the lives or several
bakers discovered on the premises
[) were taken in recompense. The hatred
which flamed so violently in nil
wars at first, diminished somewhat
with the progress of the strife.
' However, that the truth may b
known to all, this Important phase ot
the European con llict is treated with
the seriousness it deserves in Willis
J. Abbott's greatest work, "The Nui
tlons at War," which is being ottered
to readers of this newspaper who wish
/to learn the true situation 011 the con
' tinent.
A limited allotment of this invaluable
work was secured and is distribI
uted by The West Virginian at a big
aiscouni irum its rug w iui i?i ue as
explained in the Cash Discount Voucher
printed in these columns daily,
.which about covers the author's royal1
ty and chandling charges. It is a large
-book, handsome!,v bound, illustrated linearly
600 actual photographs, many
in color, with maps, charts, chronology
and 428 pages o? actual truth.
Although the lot secured was comparatively
large, it was limited, and
the heavy demand has reduced the
number materially. After the last
book is handed out, 110 more can he
obtained for less than the full price,
$3.00.

to Mr. I.lttlcpagc, and that is

his appointments would doubtless

The party tight has embarrassed the
highups of the Administration who
must take a hand in settling it, if the

Thousands of lives are needlessly | ?
sacrificed to cancer. Many of thosi a
Afflicted, could be saved. It is largely j k
a question of getting early medical jO
and surgical attention. Any sore that i A
refuses to heal should be seen by a IX
physician. ! 9
Lives now needlessly sacrificed could a
bo saved if the patient would go ' ' x
tho surgeon promptly as does the per-1 8
son attacked by appendicitis. ih
It is clear, however, that a different 9
attitude toward cancer prevails and is A
tho cause of many deaths. The almost ] jJ
superstitious dread of the disease and IN
unwillingness to admit its existence or j
to seek medical advice in time arc {
well known and difficult obstacles to , |
progress in its control. j
Proof of this fatal neglect is found {
in the experience of a prominent stir- >
geon who recently studied his case |
records in order to obtain denite in- {
formation as to the delay in the aver- J
ago case. j j
Of #55 recent patients, 2,5 were men >
and HO were women. Further study 1 j
of these 65 cases showed that after the {
first discovery of suspicious symp- $
toms the men had waited an average l{
of 12.2 months before consulting the 8
doctor and the women had waited, on ??
the average, 11.9 months or practically Q
a year's delay in all cases. 8
Winter of Konigsberg the pioneer |?
in the education of the public in re |8
gard to cancer, examined thn records {
of 1062 operable cases and showed: {
that ST per cent of them could and j
should have applied for treatment J
much earlier, when they would have j
had a far higher chance of recovery |
than was actually the case.
Warts or moles which are rubbed {
and irritated by clothing or from any | {
other cause frequently develop into |
cancer. Men frequently get cancer of !
the hp or mouth through chronic lrri- ! >
tatlon caused by overuse of a pipe. {
