FRENCH TO CONTROL SAAR
>One Point Agreed Upon Is That Ger.
t many Will Not Be Permitted to
i Keep Garrisons or Fortifica
tions Along River.
Paris. April 2. —An agreement on at
'least one point seems to have been
Ireached in the peace conference dls-
Jcussions, according to the Temps. Ger
many is not to he permitted to keep
garrisons, fortifications or 'war fac
tories, not only on the left bank of
jfhe Rhine, hut also along a strip Of at
ileast thirty miles on the right bank.
The first plan was to give France
•economic control of the Saar coal
fflelds so as to offset damage to the
Eal mines of northern France. France
is not. to have political control over
e large German population in the
•Saar valley, which would remain with
Germany. This proved objectionable
■smd one of the chief causes of the
[•council of four’s inaction. The main
[objection was the divided control, by
which France would he unable to op
erate the mines effectively, prevent
Strikes, and enforce authority when
fthe Germans were exercising political
Given Dual Control.
The new plan, therefore, seeks to
combine French economic and political
authority for a temporary period until
the productive capacity of the mines
in northern Fra nee is restored, indus
trial production revived, and the pros
tration due to the war ended. It Is es
timated that five years will be re
quired to restore the mines to normal,
and this probably gives an idea of the
length of the proposed joint control by
The fact that the control would be
•temporary would overcome the objec
tion of annexation similar to the Ger
man annexation of Alsace and Lor
raine in 1870.
The proposal was first advanced as
concerning the Saar region only, hut
it is regarded now as equally applica
ble to the left hank of the Rhine as a
possible basis of agreement.
Anew phase of the question of repa
rations is also being presented in the
proposal to avoid stating in the treaty
any specific total and thus escape con
troversy over the largeness or small
ness of the amount. Tt is -said that
this is possible by defining the char
acter of the payments over a period of
years, without precisely defining what
the total would reach, and efforts are
being made to find a formula which
would express this idea.
Italy Makes Demand.
Settlement of Italy’s frontier ques
tion contemporaneously with that of
France was insisted upon by Premier
Orlando at a conference with Presi
dent Wilson just before the council of
four convened to discuss the Italian
The Italian premier asked the presi
dent whether he did not think it ad
visable to have an Informal exchange
of views on the Italian problem, espe
cially as regards the Adriatic, before
it is presented to the council. The
president replied that he shared this
view, but owing to pressure of work
had been unable to personally study
the Italian question. However, he
promised to do so.
President Wilson has informed
other members of the Americau dele
gation to the peace conference that no
American soldiers should be used in
any trouble in eastern or southeastern

Paris, March 28. —Though the league

President Wilson reserved a safe

the .Japanese still have “up their
sleeves,” but which they refrained

hope, would act more quickly than the
league itself in the event of another
The revised covenant now is in the
hands of a redrafting committee which
will incorporate the adopted changes
in suitable form. Thus modified, the
draft will be subject to ratification by

Amendments, whether expressly re

meeting, and the last chance to intro

Penalty of Overwork.
Many Edgerton People are Beginn

The heavy tax of overwork—the ex
tra strain upon the back so necessary
to many trades and occupations is hard
on the kidntys. The kidneys begin to
fail in their work and the poisonous
matter collects in the system. If your
work seems hard for you, if you have a
lame, weak or aching back, if you
seem tired and listless, if you notice
sediment in the urine, unnatural color
or irregular passages, and seem to be
running down witnout apparent cause,
begin at once with Doan’s Kidney Pills,
the remedy that has proven so benefi
cial to so many residents of this vicin

backs of thousands of working men and
Harry Van Horn, prop, meat market,
107 Sherman Ave., W., Fort Atkinson,

of beef, I believe, weakened my kid
neys. I had severe backaches and
when I would go to lift something, a
stitch would take me in the small of
my back and I could hardly straighten
up. My back was especially lame in
the morning. Two boxes of Doan’s
Kidney Pills cured me and I have never
had any return of the trouble. ”

Kind words cost no more than un
kind ones. Kind words produce kind
actions, not only on the part of those
to whom they are addressed, but on
the part of those by whom they are
employed, and this habitually in vir

If I Were a Farmer.
If I were a farmer I would keep at
hand a few reliable medicines for minor
ailments that are not so serious as to
require the attention of a physician,
such as Chamberlain’s Colic and Diar
rhoea Remedy for bowel complaints.
Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy for
coughs, colds and croup.
Chamberlain’s Liniment for sprains,
bruises and rheumatic pains.
Chamberlain’s Tablets for stomach
troubles, biliousness and constipation.
By having these articles at hand it
would often save the trouble of a trip
to town in the busiest season or in the
night, and would enable me to treat
slight ailments as soon as they appear,
and thereby avoid the more serious
diseases that so often follow.
