TO PAY THE GUARD Uncle Sam to Be Paymaster tor State Militia. Proposition Receives Unanimous Ap proval of Senate Committee— Will Help Solve Problem of Military Unpreparedness. By EDWARD B. CLARK. Correspondent Western Newspnper Union.) ^Vashington.—The senate committee on military affairs has given favora ble and unanimous report to a bill which will make Uncle Sam in part the paymaster of the national guards men of all the states in the Union. This means that every Republican and Democrat holding membership in the committee is in favor of paying the state troops out of the funds in the United States treasury for the actual military work which they perform. Army men hold that this will increase largely the efficiency of the National Guard, will help solve the problem of military preparedness and will largely increase the enlistments In the mili tary organizations or all the states. This federal pay bill for the militia may not become a law at this ses sion, but members of congress seem to think that its passage virtually is certain in the near future. Under this bill the enlisted men in the guard will be paid 25 per cent of the pay of a man of their rank in the regular service, but of course the money will be given them only for the hours in which they are engaged in necessary military duties, drill, book instruction and the like. For years the officers of the Na- ' tional Guard from nearly every state 1 s have been advocating this measure, j The government s division of militia ! affairs in the war department has rec- I ommended it time after time. Con-! gress was opposed to it, but recently I seemingly there has been a complete change of sentiment, the vote in the 1 senate committee showing this conclu sively for it has been said every Deni- j ocrat and every Republican in the com-1 mittee gave the measure his sanction. ; Regular army officers and guards men alike have urged that nearly all men when they are paid to do a thing, no matter how small the payment may j be, feel an obligation to do it. They say that drill attendance will be in-! creased largely, that interest in the ; guards’ work will be keener and that SAPPER AT WORK 1 * A French *oJdler engaged Id napping iNMlow I • | flip relations between the state troopB and the regular troops will be closer than ever. In truth the unanimous vote of the senate on this bill and the approval which has been expressed of the measure go to show seemingly that this legislation is considered to bo one means of making the country more thoroughly prepared to defend Itself if the occasion ever should arise when defense will be necessary. GIRL IS VICTIM OF GOSSIP Sent to Home for Friendless After Death of Woman She Thought Her Mother. I"a Crosse, Wis.—Fifteen years ago Mr. and Mrs. Fred West decided their childless home was incomplete and they resolved to ndopt a baby. A little girl, one month old, was taken by the couple, and upon her Mrs W est proceeded to lavish a mother's love and devotion. The girl was named Hazel West. Two weeks ago Mrs. West died and the child, heartbroken over her loss, heard neighbors whisper that she was not Mrs. West's child. For the first time the girl learned she did not know who her parents were. Unable to stand remarks made concerning her birth, the girl appeared before Judge Brindley. Inasmuch as she had never been legally adopted, the girl was sent to the home of the friendless. “HOLD THE FORT” MAN DIES • Samuel Wagner Wigwagged the Fa mous Message for General Sherman.

POISON LOVED ONES Heroic French Girls’ Tragedy Thrills All France. Kill Their Husbands When They Find Latter, Who Were German Born, Planned to Poison Garrison With Arsenic. Paris.—How two little French girls poisoned the husbands they loved, to save the life of an entire garrison has just, been made known in Paris, and it has created a tremendous sensation. Hose and Marie Dupont, two eight eon-year-old twins were born at Ville rupt, a small village on the Lorraine frontier. In 1912 they married two students of chemistry, named Ulrich and Wilhelm, w ho loved them so much that they became French citizens and bought a drug store In the town. Hoth unions were most happy until July 29 of last year, when the hus bands received a letter from across the frontier. Immediately both be came very nervous and asked the two girls to go t.» their grandmother's home in Longwy until the situation cleared. Poth went to Longwy, but found that their grandmother was not there. They returned very late the next day to Villerupt. When they arrived at the drug store they found it e osecl. Going through the back garden they peered through the closed shmters and saw their husbands, to th^lr great amazement, talking in quite ji friendly manner to, two uhlans in full uniform. They could not believe their eyes at first, but they were horrified later nt the conversation they heard A deep plot hatf been arranged by Ulrich and Wilhelm. They had stored a big dose of strychnine and during th' night It was planned to drop It in the wine casks reserved for the French garrison. Are you sure the dose Is strong enough!" asked one of the uhlans. "Why" answe‘ed Ulrich, "it is strong enough to kill all the garrison and its reserves." With a low cr} Hose shuddered and almost fainted Moth realized they had been fooled, and that Instead of being hived th#-y were the wives of the worst of scoundrels and even worse than tha* traitors, "We must act," said Marie, "to pre vent thin most awful crime, even If we must commit one ourselves," Half an h jut later they rang the front door hell. They appeared very Joyous and explained their elation by saying thoy had heard the war had been averted They said they were so glad that they wanted to open some wine In honor of pearc* and the friendly uhlan soldier? Marie went out and brought back a champagne bottle. She poured the liquor and they drunk it. Next morning they ran out of the house. They were widows, for they themselves had used the poison. They went straight to the chief de gendarmes and told him of their sorry Plight. "We have killed our husbands,*’ they cried. Do what is right with us.*’ Hut the official simply wept with them and kissed them, for it was found that the plot had been deeply laid and that the sacrifice of the girls, which has no precedent in history, had saved thousands of Prench troops from cer tain death. Marie and Rose have been critically ill and for two months were hovering between Jlfe and death, and It was feared they would lose their reason, but they have recovered, and are now Red Cross nurses. In caring for the wounded they are trying to forget their terrible life drama. OR.

Wise Legislation Must Do Its Part To ward the Creation of an Addi tional Source of Wealth to the United States. Higher tariff protection, according to the report of a committee of the American Chemical society. Is abso lutely needed. The present duty of 30 per cent ad valorem on imported dyes has been In force many years, but it has not created an American coal-tar industry. The committee holds that a specific duty of 7 Vi cents a pound must be added to the 30 per cent ad valorem to give real pro tection. The small specific duty would Bhut out the cheap dyes which are bo largely used here, while the 30 per cent duty would be sufficient, as now, on high-priced dyes. There is plenty of raw material produced in this country, the present production of coal tar being sufficient for supplying the textile industries with dyestuffs. Hut the industry can not be established here without bet ter tariff protection. The problem is whether the public 1b willing to pay for controlling its own sources—for in the long run the cost would fall on the general public. Textile manufac turers, naturally enough, have always opposed raising the duty on dyes. It is an interesting question whether their present difficulties, including their lack of many desired colors, and much higher prices for those they do obtain, will work a change of mind in them. The conclusion of the debate is that we can have a coal-tar In dustry if we want to make the neces sary changes. For a decision, it is necessary that the public should know what changes are required, and that these concern almost exclusively the tariff, and the matter of co-operation among the color makers. — Boston Transcript. Our "Ignoble Peace." They (Wilson and Bryan) take the view that when we are asked to redeem iu the concrete promises we made in the abstract our duty is to disregard our obligations and to preserve ignoble peace for ourselves by regarding with cold-blooded and timid indifference the most frightful ravages of war commit ted at the expense of a peaceful and unoffending country. This is the cult of cowardice. That President Wilson and Mr. Bryan profess it and put it in action would be of small consequence if only they themselves were con cerned The importance of their ac tion is that it commits the United States.—Theodore Roosevelt in the In dependent. A Mind With No Sidetracks. W hy is it that the administration will persist in following certain ideas when every available scrap of infor mation as to them indicates that they are wrongly conceived? The official attitude towards Mexico has been a mistaken one from the beginning. The cotton-loan pool was opposed by hard-headed bankers wIiobo business it is to know economic conditions; the ship-purchase bill is opposed by business interests th* country over. The fact that the cotton-loan plan would help the administration out of a difficult political situation was not a sound reason for forcing that plan on the bankers.—Buffalo Express. The President to Business. In his speech to the American Elec tric Railway association at Washing ton President Wilson said: "It seems to me that 1 can say with a good deal of confidence that we are upon the eve of a new era of enter prise and of prosperity." The president has been saying this for more than a year. Indeed, he has gone much further; he said that the era of prosperity had arrived and that the blindness to It was purely psycho logical. Apparently he was mistaken in his former utterances. The amend ment is accepted with hopes thnt the new guess may come out true. When the Mists Will Blow Away. The president seems to have hnd an other vision of the good time coming, says the Baltimore American. In his speech at the Electric Railway conven tion he declared, ‘‘I feel thnt the mists and the iniaainic airs of suspicion that have filled the business world have now blown away." Well, the mists and the miasma will doubtless blow away eventually—say along about thrt first Tuesday after the first Monday in November of next year. Psychological Money Unacceptable. "There’s nothing the matter with American business except a state of mind,'1 says Mr. Wilson. "If you are going to buy it, buy It now." Yes, but the trouble Is the storekeeper won’t accept psychological money. Makes Friends Grieve. It becomes clearer from day to day that the speech recently mnde at In dianapolis by President Wilson is one which makes his most judicious friends grieve and vainly wish It had not been spoken. Unfortunately for President Wilson, he seems to have near him and In his confidence no sagacious and competent adviser In such matters, or, what is probably ,he case, he is so convinced of his own aelf-snfflciency.

Lots of Water. No man or woman who eats meat regularly can make a mistake by flush ing the kidneys occasionally, says a well-known authority. Meat form* uric acid which excites the kidneys, they become overworked from the strain, get sluggish and fail to filter tho waste and poisons from the blood, then we get sick. Nearly all rheu matism, headaches, liver trouble, ner vousness, dizziness, sleeplessness and urinary disorders come from sluggish kidneys. The moment you feel a dull ache in the kidneys or your back hurts or if the urine is cloudy, offensive, full of sediment, irregular of passage or at tended by a sensation of scalding, stop eating meat and get about four ounces of Jad Salts from any pharmacy; take a tablespoonful in a glass of water before breakfast and In a few days your kidneys will act fine. This fa mous salts Is made from the acid of grapes and lemon juice, combined with litbia, and has been used for generations to flush and stimulate the kidneys, also to neutralize the acids in urine so it no longer causes Irrita tion, thus ending bladder weakness. Jad Salts is inexpensive and cannot injure; makes a delightful efferves cent lithia-water drink which everyone should take now and then to keep the kidneys clean and active and the blood pure, thereby avoiding serious kidney complications.—Adv. OWNER EXPECTED TOO MUCH Borrowing Neighbor Considered He Had Done His Fair Share in the Transaction. A few days ago saw Ol McMahon borrowing a hatchet or other imple ment to drive or draw nails at Sher man's hardware store, says the To ronto (Kan.) Republican. And that brought to inind a "borrowing” story of Uncle Ol: A great number of years ago Her bert Lockard owned one of the few two-section harrows hereabout. Uncle Ol was farming some, and went up to borrow it. Herbert always would loan anything he had, but he wanted it brought home. So he waited a rea sonable time for the harrow to be brought back, and finally, having to use It, went after it. As he drovq along he began to get roiled over the thought of going after his own harrow, and by the time he got it loaded into his wagon was downright mad Said he: "Ol, I thought you was neigh bor enough to bring home what you borrowed.” "Bring it home!” shouted Ol, with a great show of indignation; "bring it home! Why, heavens to Betsy, man, I went after it! How much do you expect of a neighbor, anyhow?” Chocolates In Fashion. Matinee girls make and break fash ions in confectionery, and\. just now there is a deadly set toward chocolates of all kinds. Time was when the chocolate cream was every girl’s ideal of luscious delight. Then came days when bonbons ruled and when the clever girl behind the candy counter slipped only a small proportion of chocolates into a box of assorted sweets. But chocolate has come to its own again. Perhaps this is why Georgle Cohan introduced a touching Rcene in his play, “Hello, Broadway.” You see, the girl he is in love with makes an awful discovery. And oh. how she raves when the secret comes out! She finally throws Georgle over becnuse he confesses he’s a chocolate fiend. "Oh, double O!” she again raves. "Ain’t it awful, and to think I always thought he was a perfect gen tleman.” Southern and eastern Europe fur nish 37 per cent of the emigrants to the United States. THE DOCTOR’S WIFE Agrees With Him About Food. A trained nurse says: “In the prac tice of my profession I have found so many points in favor of Grape-Nuts food that I unhesitatingly recommend it to all my patients. "It is delicate and pleasing to the palate (an essential in food for the sick) and can be adapted to all ages, being softened with milk or cream for babies or the aged when deficiency of teeth renders mastication impossible. For fever patients or those on lltpild diet I find Grape-Nuts and albumen water very nourishing and refreshing. "This recipe Is my own idea and In made as follows: Soak a teaspoonful of Grape-Nuts In a glass of water for an hour, strain and serve with the beaten white of an egg and a spoonful of fruit Juice for flavouring} This af fords a great deal of nourishment that even the weakest stomach can assimi late without any distress. “My husband Is a physician and he uses Grape-Nuts himself and orders It many times for his patients. “Personally I regard a dish of Grape Nuts with fresh or Btewcd fruit as the ideal breakfast for anyone—well or sick.” In stomach trouble, nervous prostra tion, etc., a 10-day trial of Grape-Nuts will usually work wonders toward nourishing and rebuilding and in this way end the trouble.
