HERO OF REMARKABLE ESCAPE
SergL Pilot E. T. Buckley of Chicago
whose parents live In Kllbourne, Ill., Is
back In America after some 20 months
of service In the great war, topped off
with capture by the Huns and a re
markable escape from their prison
It was on January 2, 1916, that
Buckley, then fresh from the Universi
ty of Illinois, joined the Foreign Le
gion of France with the Intention of
qualifying as a flyer. After a thorough
course In a French aviation school he
was assigned to Nungesser's traveling
squadron, known as Escadrille Spad,
which corresponded to the German
traveling circus headed by the late
Richthofen. He and his French
comrades, while attached to the La
fayette flying corps, had a roving com
mission which took them along the
western front, but it was in the Ver
rinn region that the American volun
teer was to meet the biggest experi
ence of his life. On September 6 last year he was brought down in a fight with
three German planes, one of which he crashed. He was taken to a German
prison camp wounded. He was fed badly and treated with studied cruelty
«because he was an American volunteer In the French army. He made three
effort* to escape, but each time was caught on the Swiss frontier or before he
reached it. On the fourth occasion he also was stopped by a German sentry,
but ha gave battle with a pocket knife which a German had given him In the
prison camp, laid out the sentry, and made his way back to his squadron In
NEW AMBASSADOR TO BRITAIN
When President Wilson selected
John W. Davis of West Virginia to
succeed Walter Hines Page as ambas
siderable surprise but not a single ad
verse criticism of the appointment.
The announcement was made just as
Mr. Davis, who was then solicitor gen
eral of the United States, arrived in
Switzerland to serve as the bead of
the American delegation at the Berne
conference between American and Ger
man missions on the treatment and
exchange of prisoners of war.
Since he went to Washington sev
en years ago as a member of congress
from the First West Virginia district,
Mr. Davis has been an active figure in
the capital. He was elected to succeed
himself In the house, but hardly hail
begun his second term when President
Wilson appointed him solicitor gen
eral In August. 1913.
Mr. Davis Is forty-five years old.
Beginning life as a lawyer in his home town of Clarksburg, W. Va., after gradu
ating at the Washington and Lee university and the University of Virginia, he
became prominent In Democratic politics and served in the West Virginia legis
lature before going to congress and was a delegate to the Democratic national
convention of 1904.
LORD MILNER, WORKER
On the one occasion—It was but a
few weeks ago—when Lord Milner has
submitted to an Interview, I had gone
to him greatly impressed by the high
privilege granted me, and. somehow,
expected something rather formidable,

a tall man, very approachable, very
human, ready to answer "leading ques

of public servant.
of the word, his governmental work all
has been service—that of a man caring
very little. If anything at all, for place
and power, but above all things to be
of value to the empire. He never has
HI conceded anything to ease ; his close
Kl associates declare he never thinks
about himself. His heart Is with the
worker, although his own tastes are Indicated by the fact that at Oxford he
was pre-eminently the first scholar of his class, despite the fact that brilliant
men. Including Mr. Asquith, were In opposition.
The passion of his life Is to see the British empire knit In true democracy,
coherent, unalterably cohesive, so equipped with governmental power and
Individual impulse that all great natural resources will be developed for the
public good. The pvblic good : Those three words are his creed. Now they

FOR HOW LONG
Emmett Raise« a Pertinent Question,
When a neighbor tells us that he
has recovered from a serious illness,
the first question that naturally arises
is, "How long will he keep well?"
Temporary relief is one thing, but a
lasting cure is altogether different.
There is nothing temporary about the
work of Doan's Kirney Pills as the
following Emmett evidence proves
beyond a doubt.
Mrs. C. V. Stokesbery, Park and
McKinley Sts., says: "I was troubled
with my kidneys for many years. My
back was weak and lame and it pain
ed me so I was miserable,
neys acted irregularly and I was an
noyed by bladder disorders. Day af
ter day, I was laid up with sick dizzy
headaches. I was a>o subject to
chills and was nervous. I was told
about Doan's Kidney Pills so I got
some at the Payette Valley Pharmacy
and they gave me a lasting cure."
(Statement given October 25, 1907)
On September 12, 1917, Mrs. Stokes
bery said: "I haven't needed a kid

Bloating in animals like the cow, sheep or goat is
caused by the quick formation of gases, due to fermen
tation of the food. Death may be caused very suddenly.
Dr. Korinek's Anti-Cow Bloat is of wonderful merit
in stopping the formation of gas and expelling tire gas
already formed, if used before the fatal stage, which
is marked by the animal reeling and staggering.
Price, $1 per box. Each package contains four large
capsules for cows, and four small capsules for calves,
sheep or goats. Gun Free.
