If Too Fat Get
More Fresh Air
Be Moderate In Your Diet and Reduce
Your Weight. Taktf Oil of
Lack of fresb air it is said weakens
the oxygen carrying power of the
blood, the liver becomes sluggish, fat
accumulates and the action of many
of the vital organs are hindered there
by. The heart action becomes weak,
work is an effort and the beauty of the
[figure 1b destroyed.
Fat put on by Indoor life is un
healthy and if nature is not assisted
in throwing it oil a serious case of
mlj obesity may result.
"•f When you feel that you are getting
too 8tout, take the matter in hand at
once. Don't wait until your figure
has become a joke and your health
ruined through carrying around a bur
den of unsightly and unhealthy fat.
Spend as much time as you pos
slbly can in the open air breathe
deeply, and get from Wilkinson & Co.,
or any druggist a box of oil of koreln
capsules take one after each meal
and one before retiring at night.
Weigh yourself every few days and
keep up the treatment until you are
down to normal. Oil of korein is ab
solutely harmless. Is pleasant to take,
helps the digestion and even a few
days treatment has been reported to
show a noticeable reduction in weight.

WASHINGTON, July 7.—America
will soon be seeing the big drive in
the movies, according to a private
London cablegram received today by
one of the embassies here.
"Probably no such battle has ever
before been recorded." the message
says. "The cinemateograph opera

Roy Rein Pays Thirty-Five Dollars
and Seventy Cents in Su
perior Court on Two
According to Authorities Keokuk
Autolsts Are Obeying the
Rules and Ordi
The largest fine that has ever been
meted out in the superior court to a
violator of the automobile laws was
assessed against Roy Rein, dairvman,
who lives in the near vicinit of Keo
kuk, this morning, by Judge Mc
Thirty-five dollars and stventy
cents was the amount
Rein was charged with both reck
less driving and having his muffler
open on Saturday night. For the
former he was fined $25 and costs and
for the latter, $5 and costs. The
reckless driving, the authorities
claimed, was at Sixth and Main
street and the open muffler on North
Fourteenth street.
Young Rein not oniy got the heavi
est fine that has been drawn so far,
but also a good lecture in court The
authorities say that this is his fifth
conviction. At each new conviction
the amount of the fine is increased.
The last time Rein was held his fine
went a little over $27. He was warn
ed that there had been many com
plaints against him and that the next
time it would be $100.
The law of Iowa gives the secre
tary of state the power to revoke any
auto license in Iowa after four con
victions, upon recommendation of the
presiding Judge. After this a new
license cannot be secured for a period
of six months and only then at the
discretion of the secretary of state.
The recent crusade by the police
is apparently bearing fruit No one
was arrested last night for not hav
ing lamps lighted or for any other
cause. Local autoists are also seeing
to it that their cars are supplied with
two numbers. Fast drimg has al
most disappeared and drivers are
giving evidence of wanting to com
ply with the laws and ordinances.
The authorities have not given up
the vigil, however, and will keep just
as close a look out in the future as
in the past. There may be some
that are disobeying some of the laws
who are escaping while others are
suffering, but the authorities say that
they will all be rounded up some
time when they are least expecting it

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., July 7.—
'Four prominent residents of St. Aug

killed when the car skidded into a

all the government buildings are lo

last communication from Pensacola

Wind velocity at some points along
the coast was said to have reached
104 miles an hour Wednesday after
noon. Crop damage about Tallahasee
and on the southern Alabama will be
heavy. Some crops were totally de

places it will require some time to re

Will Exchange Views.
WASHINGTON, July 7.—Declaring
the government of the United States
is prepared immediately to exchange
views as to a practical plan to remove
finally and prevent a recurrence of
the difficulties which have been the
cause of controversy, Secretary of
State Tanning dispatched to Mexican
Ambassador Arredondo today a reply
to General Carranza's note of July 4.
The American government com

"frank statement of the difficulties
which have unfortunately arisen" and
expresses gratification over the "unre

your government to reacn an adjust
Arredondo will immediately tele

office and it is expected that he will

desired negotiations with the state

of Secretary Lansing who leaves for
his vacation this afternoon. It is un

of the two governments in advance of

mission to study the whole problem
and make recommendations to the
heads of the two countries.
The note delivered today by Secre
tary Lansing to Ambassador Arre

day from Foreign Secretary Aguilar
"Sir, I have the honor to acknow

transcribe a note addressed to me by
the secretary of foreign relations of
your government and to request that
you transmit to him the following

to acknowledge the receipt of your
courteous note transmitted to me by
Senor Arredondo on the fourth Instant

June 20 and June 25 and to assui

government that the frank statement
of ike difficulties which have unfor

the International boundary and the
unreserved expression of the desire
of your government to reach an ad

broad and amicable basis. The same
spirit of friendship and of Bolicitude
for the continuance of cordial rela

spired my government which equally
desires an immediate solution of the
differences which have long vexed
both governments.

government that the defacto govern

remedies which may be applied to

Militiamen on Duty.
[By Webb C. Miller, United Press
Staff Correspondents
COLUMBUS. N. M., July 7.—Militia
men from western Massachusetts have
been assigned to outpost duty in the
base camp here. One batta'.'on under
Major H. H. Warren took up their
lonely posts last night In the desert
surrounding Columbus. The men re
main on duty for two hourr, are re
lieved for the next four hours and so
alternate for twenty-four hours.
The outposts were orderei to chal
lenge any moving object aud to shoot
If no answer came or they suspected
anything. Shortly after midnight a
sentry on the post
toward the Mexican line noticed a
moving object in the mesquite bushes.
He challenged and receiving no reply,
leveled his rifle to fire. A friendly
burro saved its life by walking up to
the militiaman and muzzling in his
pockets. Three companies from
Worcester and one from Orange were
the first militiamen to ro on guard

heat. Practically every down east
guardsman has been equipped with
hideous goggles of amber celluloid
that cover the upper half of the face.
When a sand storm comes up the
militiamen put handkerchiefs over
nostrils and mouth.
The militiamen have already ac
quired a coat of tan and are -hardly
distinguishable from regulars. One
ingenious Yankee guardsman solved
the problem of eating in the high
wind by putting molasses on his
knife and sticking the beans to it.
Many of the Massachusetts men came
here without forks in their mess kits,
but quickly learned to eat with their
Can be Released.
WASHINGTON, July 7—Though
having no statistics on the number of
national guardsmen with dependent
families, war department officials to
day estimated not more than 1,000
men will be discharged under Secre
eary Baker's permit to department
commanders to free suc'a men from
Hundreds of letters asking release
of men with families have reached
the department, but many of these
duplicate the same cases.
In freeing the men, the states will
give them an honorable discharge and
must then recruit others to fill their
places. The guardsman who wishes
to escape service may make affidavit
at any time that his family is in need
of his support and the department
commander can free him without other
ceremony or formality.
The war department believes there
will be an extremely large number of
cases where men who have families
will not claim exemption because
there is a nest egg tucked away in
the bank or other bread winners in
the family.
Delegates at N. E- A, Convention
Pussyfooted When the Ques
tion Came to a Vote.
NEW YORK, July 7.—The National
Educational Association convention
today pussyfooted when It came down
to a vote on the question of military
training in schools. After picturesque
and oftimes lurid debate, the conven
tion finally adopted a resolution which
while neither favoring or disapprov
ing of compulsory training, "recog
nizes" the right of states and muni
cipalities to order such training, and
concludes: "the organization believes
that such training should be strictly
educational in its aim and organiza
tion and that the military end shou'd
not be permitted to pervert the edu
cation purposes and practices of the
school." Although the women dele
gates—from whom most of the oppo
sition to military preparedness has
heretofore been marked—were vast
ly in the majority at previous ses
sions,for some mysterious reason to
day they were absent from the hall
and the men nearly all of whom were
against pacifism, were in control.
The question of pacifism vs. pre
paredness was threshed out in Madi
son Square garden.
"X am willing to give my life for
my country," impassionately declared
one of the pilgrims, "but I insist if I
make the sacrifice, it shall be a con
servative one."
J. S. Catroll, New York, viciously
attacked boys training camps like
that In operation near New York. '"1

Miss Gait of Virginia, was one of
the women who stood out firmly for
complete preparedness. She made an
appeal for adequate preparedness.
"I thank God," she concluded, "that
there are men in America to protect
us women, but I do not want them to
be unprepared."
"I think it is cowardly for us to
place the burden of military training
and education on the shoulders of the
little school children" declared Mrs.
Howe of California. "If you must
have preparedness, let the men and
women over eighteen prepare."'
One other resolution adopted pro
vides for appointment of a committee
of five to see President Wilson and
urged -the appointment of a commit
tee to devise means for taking the
yoke off farm women and make rural
homes more liveable. Another reso
lution urged appropriation of $60,000
for training of immigrants.
Just one solitary masculine "no"
was registered against a resolution
endorsing woman suffrage. The
antl-suffrasrlst had a seat directly be
side Mrs. Ella Flagg Young of Chica
go, an ardent votes for women advo
cate and she favored him with a with
ering glare.
tBefore adjournment the convention
elected Robt. J. Aley, of the universi
ty of Mlaine, president and Thomas E.
Flnnegan, of New York, treasurer.

Fairview park had a good crowd
and Bigg8ville vs. Hamilton gave the
onlookers an interesting game of ball
which resulted 3 to 2 in favor of
Hamilton. The gathering at the
Chautauqua grounds was small, but
made up in quality what was lack
ing in numbers. Rev. Eleanor Gor
don read a selected poem whose spirit
she commended to the ladies of Oak
wood who had arranged the picnic
and are ladies of a most exemplary
public spirit Miss Gordon also Bpoke
of the best democracy—the democ
racy which strives for tte good of
the community.
A. L. McArthur made a short talk
on the subject "We. tlie People."
He referred to the fact that many
sections are now suffer'iig from an
epidemic of infantile paralysis. We
have had one or two visitations from
this scourge and should be wise
enough: to take all kinds of precau
tions against a recurrence of it Some
form of fly carries the evil, one bite
of the poison-laden culprit being
enough to endanger the health and
life of any child it may find. The
only proper, decent thing to do is to
see that no cesspool, pond or drain
ace basin of any sort no pile of offal
in the alleys, yards, on the streets
or^ elsewhere be allowed to remain

Hamilton, 111., July 7
The Fourth passed without any re
grettable results, no burns, bruises or
native drunks so far as has come to
our knowledge. However, wo were
surprised to learn there were only
some five drunks before the court in
Keokuk. This may be all so. We do
not question the accuracy of the
statement at all, but what puzzles us
is where all the drunks who were on
the cars did go to. Several parties
have suggested it would be & proper
move to put on a car to be known
as the hog car, and require all such
undesirably conditioned fellows to
ride in it More than one stated
they never saw so many evidently
drunken men as were on the cars the
evening of the Fourth.
