Russians Extend the Soviet Gov
ernment Into Poland.
Prussians Are Joining the Bolshevik
Army—Truce Meeting Delayed as
Reds Force the Poles Back in
Fierce Attacks.
London, Aug. -4. —A provisional sov
iet lias been formed in the parts of
Poland that have been occupied by
soviet troops, according to a wireless
message received here from Moscow.
Julian Marchlewski is chairman of
the newly formed body, adds the
The new soviet has issued a mani
festo to ilie laborers of Poland', ex
horting them to arise “against Piisud
sky’s bourgeoisie, land owner govern
The manifesto declares that a stable
peace between Russia and Poland is
only possible through soviets of the
“Take Works and Mines.”
“The works and mines must be
wrested from the hands of the capi
talist speculators and money lenders
and become the property of the people
in the persons of the workers’ com
mittee,” continued the manifesto. The
land and forests must be banded over
as the property of the people and be
managed by the people. The land own
ers must be driven away and the prop
erty managed by the poor peasants’
committees. The land of the working
peasants will remain untouched.
“In the towns authority will pass
into the hands of the workers’ depu
ties. In the village temporary soviets
will be formed.
“When throughout Poland the
bloody government which dragged the
country into the criminal war is over
thrown the soviets of workers’ depu
ties of the towns and villages will
form the Polish soviet republic.”
Prussians Join Red Army.
Recruiting for the “red” army is be
ginning to make itself felt in East
Prussia, and membership in one of
the socialist parties is the condition
or admittance, according to an Alien
stein (Prussia) dispatch.
Bolshevik cavalry, which was in
Lornza Sunday, has been driven back,
but there are large bolshevik forces
at Graievo.
The German correspondent describes
the appearance of bolshevik cavalry
on the German frontier, which he says,
was nowhere greatly violated. Offi
cers, he adds, repeatedly assured the
population that the frontier would be
respected and that they had no idea
of violating German territory.
The Russians, according to the cor
respondent, pay for everything with
soviet notes an<J treat the population
well. The bolshevik cavalry is report
ed to he well equipped, with prerevolu
tionary discipline prevailing.
Red Demands Delay Armistice.
Negotiations for an armistice be
tween Poland and soviet Russia have
been delayed, according to a wireless
dispatch received from Moscow. It
says the Polish delegation left Baran
ovitchi for Warsaw on Monday to pre
c*ent to its government the soviet de
mand that the Polish delegates be giv
en mandates for signing, not only an
armistice agreement, but also a pro
tocol setting forth fundamental condi
tions of peace.
“Without this,” the message de
clares, “it will be impossible to con
clude an armistice.”
The Polish delegation on August 1,
at Beranovitchi, presented its creden
tials from the Polish command em
powering it to negotiate an armistice,
the message continues. The Russians,
however, declared that the original Po
lish proposals called not only for an
armistice, but for the opening of peace
negotiations, and informed the Polish
delegates that they must have man
dates for signing the fundamental con
ditions of peace.
The Poles, ad is the dispatch, replied
that they must return to Warsaw to
present this question for the decision
of the Polish government.

National Guardsman Kills Veteran of

war and captain of the local company

Radium Treatment Turns the Cheaper
Stones to Rubies Which Com*
mand the Highest Prices.
Modem science has not brought us
very much nearer the magic stone of
the old philosophers, but it has enabled
later experts to play some surprising
tricks with the existing materials of
the jeweler and lapidary. The old
alchemists set out to discover the phi
losopher’s stone, and achieved gunpow
der and other adjuncts to civilization
as the accidental by-product of their
original inquiry. Their less Credulous
descendants reverse the process; the
Invention is made first and its applica
tion to magic is discovered afterward.
The existence of the electric furnace
makes it possible to create diamonds
that are the veritable stone, and to
fuse chippings and fragments of ruby
into one complete jewel. Now arrives
a report that with the aid of radium
successful transformations have been
made in the appearance, if not in the
nature, of certain precious stones. A
sapphire, it is said, has been turned
into a glorious ruby by long exposure
to the effect of radium. Chemically
considered, this is not very surprising,
for the two stones are both examples
of corundum, and the mysterious acci
dent of color is the principal difference
between them. If a sapphire can be
made to blush hard enough for its
mistake in not being a ruby, pre
sumably it could blush itself into a
most accomplished example of the
more valuable stone.
Japanese Customs That Seem Odd to
Those Accustomed to the For
malities of the West.
Japan must be a happy land for
theatergoers, because in that land
seats are not paid for —in fact there
are no seats. The Japanese much pre
fers to squat, feeling, no doubt, much
more at home in th*ts comfortable at
titude. Seats, however, are usually
brought for the use of any foreigners
who may be present. There are no
hard and fast laws of convention. The
Japanese playgoer may do as he
pleases; he may eat, drink, smoke
and criticize to his heart’s content.
Conversations are carried on, and, if
tlfey merit it, the actors are met by a
storm of criticism and chaff. When a
man enters the auditorium he removes
Ms hoots, and if the weather is hot,
any clothing that appears to him to
be superfluous. The naive frankness
of the actors’ prompter is rather de
lightful, for if an actor forgets his
lines the prompter comes on the stage
and, quite openly, points out to the
aetor where he is wrong. A boy is
kept for the express purpose of walk
ing on the stage and wiping the per
spiration off the actors’ faces; this
duty he carries out without disturbing
the even tenor of the play.
Beetle Cultivator.
Ants are not the only bisects that
practice the cultivation of mushrooms,
although for a long time it was thought
that they were the only creatures of
a lower order than man that possessed
the intelligence to follow such an agri
cultural pursuit. Bouverie, the ento
mologist, had found that a certain
wood-boring beetle, known as the bos
trychide, is as familiar with mushroom
cultivation as is the species of ant of
which so much has been written. Pro
fessor Bouverie discovered that the
beetles in question bore holes in wood
and half fill them with a prepared
fungus which makes an ideal mush
room bed. The garden is carefully
spawned and in course of time the
mushrooms appear. In this way the
beetle provides itself with a food suf
ficiently tender for its feeble jaws.
Shall We Discard Hyphens?
In the struggle for the conservation
of energy and material we are urged
to cut out the hyphens from our books
and writings, says the Chicago Jour
nal. Their use causes 11s to waste an
enormous amount of time, ink and
physical force. Some nations build
tip compound words without any hy
phen to break them, but the English
find one necessary for a simple word
of five letters, like “to-day.” It may
be roughly estimated that each of the people who write Eng
lish write “today,” “tomorrow” or
“tonight” three times a day. Half an
ounce of force is required to make
a hyphen with a pen or a pencil, so
this superfluous symbol entails a to
tal waste of 18,500,000 pounds daily, or
enough to draw a passenger train
round the world.
Humming Bird's Nest.
Burroughs, in his charming little
book. “Wake Robin,” says it is an
event in one’s life to find a humming
bird’s nest. The event happened to
me without any effort on my part.
Looking up from a seat in the grove,
I saw the ruby-throat drop down on
its nest, like a shining emerald from
the clouds; it did not pause upon tl*e
edge of the nest, but dropped imme
diately upon. it. The nest was situ
ated upon an oak twig, and was
about the size of a black-walnut, aud
from where I sat it looked more like
an excrescence than a nest. It was sit
uated in the fork of two twigs, and
firmly glued at the base to the lower,
but was not fastened to the upper
twig.—Mary Treat in “Home Studies
in Nature.”

catarrh. Hall’s Catarrh Cure is the only
