the Ailing out of ugly hollows, the rounding

Is no wonder that many and varied sug

time In public print.
While excessive thinness might be at
tributed to various and subtle cfcuaes In
different Individuals It Is a well-known fact
that the lack of sufficient phosphorus In
the human system Is very largely respon
sible for , this condition. Experiments on
humans and animals by many scientists
have demonstrated beyond question of
doubt that a body deficient in phosphorous
becomes nervous, sickly and thin. A noted
author and professor In his book, "Chem
istry and Food Nutrition." published In 1918,
says: t • • that the amount of phos
phorous required for the normal nutrition
of man Is seriously underestimated In many
of our standard text books."

It was n day near the end of winter.
“IVell, Mrs. Aoutlad, what have you
to say for yourself?"
“I am well, I thank you,” said Mrs.
“Is that all yon have to say for your
self?” said Mr. Aondad again, looking
Very much surprised.
“That’s about all," said Mrs. Aoudnd,
with a half smile to herself.
“Very strange," sold Mr. Aoudad,
"very strange indeed."
''Why?” asked Mrs. Aoudnd.
“Well. It does seem to me ns though
you might have something else to say.
tome kind words to address to your
dear ami loving mate."
“T*h. ho,” said Mr;* Aonnad. "hut
fou didn’t ask me what I had to say
to you, hut what ■ had to say for my
telf. I thought you meant that you
wanted to know what 1 had to say for
Myself, about myself in short.”
“No. I didn’t mean that,” said Mr.
Aoudnd. "though of course I am de
.lghted to know that your state of
lealth Is good.”
"My health Isn't a state," said Mrs.
Aoudad. Neither Is It a country, nor
s It a city, nor yet a zoo. It’s not a
Itnte at all. There are no towns In It.”
“I didn’t mean that sort of a state,”
said Mr. Aoudad. “You are too fond
of hearing children talk about geog
raphy. I don’t bother when I hear
them. I know of the land where I
came from, and that Is about enough."
“What do yon want me to say?”
asked Mrs. Aoudad.
“Well, I thought you might care to
say what a fine-looking chap I am, and
all such things,"
"I agree to all that," said Mrs. Aou
“Then say so; say all the nice things
in turn. They sound so good to the
ears," said Mr. Aoudnd.
So Mrs. Aoudad admired Mr. Aou
dnd and Mr. Aoudnd was very happy.

another, and each way he asked Mrs.

Race riots and strikes made Chicago
'he news center of the country for the
veek, and the news from It was sen
intlonnl and plentiful. Starting In a
•rifling quarrel over the “color Hire"
it a bathing beach, a real face war
sprang up with startling suddenness
tnd quickly spread throughout the
South side of the city, where most of
the negroes live, and thence to the
downtown business district, with spo
radic outbreaks In other regions. Be
fore the authorities got the situation
under*control nearly two score per
sons had been killed and several hun
dred wounded. For several days the
mayor Insisted the police could re
store order, hut realization of his mis
take was forced on him and he called
an the governor for assistance from
the state mllttln. Several regiments
at once occupied the “black belt."
However, the establishment of martial
law was avoided and thus the city
"saved Its face.”
There In no doubt thnt the casualty
lists of the race war were kept down
by the fact that the strike of the
street car men was coincident with
the riots. Not a surface or elevated
car was running and It was compara
tively easy for the authorities to keep
out of the riot district the trouble and
curiosity seekers. The strike, which
had been Impending for some time,
was precipitated suddenly by the rad
ial element In the car men’s unions, a
compromise offer of the companies, ap
proved by the state and dty authori
ties and the heads of the unions, be
ing rejected. Though seriously ham
pered In getting to Its work and In
transacting business, the public took
the situation good naturedly and made
Its. way to the business district and
home again with rather remarkable
facility. All manner of motor ve
hicles were pressed Into service and
the steam roads exerted every effort
to carry their many thousands of extra
passengers. The demand of the car
men for a heavy Increase. In wages
did not have general sympathy, for It
pieant a corresponding Increase In the
fares charged.
There have been many bitter com
plllnfs lately to: the effect that the
government wait, not doing what It
qifcbt ,to reduce the cost of living by
sejtlng* to consnmdrs the Immense sur
plus stores of food -held by the war
department-. On Thursday the war
dctiprtlpent ?iut On safe about 341.000,-
000. pounds of those foodstuffs, Inelud:
Ink’, coined vegetables, coined beef.

carriers, wbo too* order* Yrom buy

the goods. The prices obtained rep
resented the cost to the government
plus the postage. This kale was es-
peclally well patronized by thn£people
of small towns and rural dfstndfs, and
It was predicted that tin* supplies
would be disposed of within *n week.
Of course such a measure ns Ibis
Is only a drop In the bucket, and it Is
belay; more and more forcibly impress
ed on the government that It must do
something to make the cost of life's
necessities square with the Incomes
of the people. The advisory board fif
the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engi
neers took up the matter directly with
the president, presenting to him a
memorandum which he characterized
as an “impressive document" and
ordered made public. The hoard ap
pealed to the president and cabinet
for government action to Increase the
purchasing power of the dollar, fall
ing In which, It said, the engineers
would have to ask a further increase
In wages. The memorandum asserted
that the spirit of unrest existing
among all classes, especially wage
earners, was due “mainly to the con
scienceless profiteering by the great
Interests who have secured control of
all the necessaries of life.” The en
gineers are wise enough to see and
to admit that Increasing the wages
Is but temporary relief so long ns
prices continue to soar.
Just before the engineers visited the
While House Democratic National
Chairman Cummings reported to the
president on his political Inspection
trip over the country, telling Mr. Wil
son of the growing Importance of ac
tion to reduce the cost of living. What
form that action will take, when It
comes, cannot be conjectured even
from the fact that official Investiga
tions of various kinds of alleged profi
teering are under way or proposed.
The Immediate result of all this was
a conference of cabinet members and
heads of bureaus called by Attorney
General Palmer for the purpose of
discussing the situation and possible
remedies. The government will seek
to stop and punish profiteering, to de
termine the contributing causes for
high prices and to devise remedies for
Immediate relief for the public.
The administration Is gravely con
cerned over the manifest discontent
of the American farmers, which comes
Just at a time when the official es
timates of the nation’s wheat crop
have had to be greatly reduced. The
farmers have been dissatisfied with
the system of grading fixed by the bu
reau of markets of the department of
agriculture, and now, as Chairman
Barnes of the government grain cor
poration told the president, they are
protesting against an order from the
corporation' fixing a schedule of dis
counts for the lower grades of wheat.
This, they assert, deprives them of an
unreasonably large part of the guar
anteed price of per bushel, the
amount received being In some In
stances ns low as $1,4!) per bushel.
The Eraneo-Amerlean defense treaty
was submitted to the'senate, and at
once became a subject of debate In
the committee on foreign relations,
along with the pence treaty. President
Wilson, In asking .Its approval, said
he considered the, treaty with Ger
many |md the cpvertant of the League
of Nations gave France full protec
tion. buhdthat hje had been tnoved to
the treat/ try considerations of friend
ship and gratitude to France. Oppo
sition iiemtfors protested that this
pact violated the constitutional right
of congress to make war, to which the
president's supporters had the obvious
retort that It created no precedent,
similar action having been, taken In
numerous cases In the past', i ’
The foreign relations committee did
an unusual If not unprecedented thing
In holding public hearings on the peace
treaty. Bernard Baruch was the first
witness and was questioned especially
regarding the reparation and other
linmielnl clauses.
President Wilson positioned the
start of his speaking tour of the coun
try probably unlll August 15, and con
tinued his efforts In Washington In
behalf of the peace treaty and league
covenant. He called in more senators
to conference, both Democrats and ilo
publicans, and appealed for unquall
llcd ratitlcation of the treaty especial
ly on the ground that reservations or
amendments would necessitate Its re
submlsslon to Germany, which ho said
would be humiliating to us. To Sen
ator Feraald of Maine Mr. Wilson said
he had assumed there were at least
nlxty senators who would take a world
view of the situation.
“There are sixty men In the United
States senate who take a world view
of the situation," Senator Fern ald re
plied. “Fortunately, they Include In
their view the best Interests of the
United States of America.”
Other senators told the president
that while they recognized the fact
that reservation's would cause delay,
they considered the protection of
American Interests of greater Impor
tance than speedy ratification. There
Is no doubt that both sides to the con
troversy would be glad to find some
dignified way out of It, but neither
seems to have made any converts. The

of the remainder of the Armenian na

their army and they and the Tatar*

three sides, cutting them off from All

extermination. Unless military pro
tection Is afforded the Armenians at
