IDE HOSPITALS ON OMR SIDE American Wounded Soldiers Serenaded by Infantry Band as Part of Thanks giving Day Program. Sergeant En£ m's Only Worry Was ; Fear That Nurses Would Think He Was Too Sick for a Lib eral Portion of Turkey. By J. W. PEGLER. American Field Headquarters in France, Nov. 30.—An American infan try band played all day long: yesterday . in the yard cV a certain American base hospital—because a certain sick major general of th 3 army in that hospital! -learned that wounded American sol-land diers in the ward adjoining his were lonesome. The general issued orders from his sick bed that brought the 'band, with such tunes as "My Old Kentucky Home," "Suwannee River" and the latest Jazz stuff, in its Thanksgiving serenade. But when the United Press corre spondent looked for any signs of lone someness among the American wound- j ed, it wasn't there. All the Americans | were anxious about was whether they Were going to get enough turkey. There was Sergeant Engstrom ofj Port Sill, Okla., lying in bed at this, hospital. His loft arm was shattered and suspended in a sling from the ceil ing. He grinned just the same. HOW HE GOT IT. "How'd 1 get it?" he responded to my Question. "Weil, our battery was just finishing Its turn at the rront. Our re- i lief was due in a few hours. We had Just two shells remaining—both of 'em In our guns, ready to fire. ''The Germans had been touching our positions all day long and we fre quently had to jump for the dugouts. Along about noon a fragment of shell hit me full on the ehest —but it didn't penetrate and I wasn't hurt "Just the same, I had i% hunch I'd probably be wcunded before dusk. "Sure enough, later on and Just about dark, I heard a German gun boom, a shell whistled—and Sergeant Peck—he comes from Hartwell, Ga., and Privates Miller, Rismiller, Wat kins, Jones, Lew it t and myself hu • riedly took refuge in our ammunition dugout. I might Just say incidentally that a few hours before that dugout was chuck full of ammunition. SAVED BY HELMETS. '•Well as we hunched down there a Herman high explosive shell pene trated the roof. A fragment struck my helmet and bent my head back so WfMA \w\mm Ah! That's the Spot Sloan's Liniment goes right to it. Have you a rheumatic ache or a dull throbbing neuralgic pain?

This excellent, common-sense health measure being adopted by millions* Physicians the world over recom ment the inside bath, claiming this is of vastly more importance than out side cleanliness, because the skin pores do not absorb impurities into the blood, causing ill health, while the pores in the ten yards of bowels do. Men and women are urged to drink each morning, before breakfast glass of hot water with a teaspoonful of limestone phosphate in it, as a harmless means of helping to wash from the stomach, liver, kidneys and bowels the previous day's indigestible material, poisons, sour bile and toxins; thus cleansing, sweetening and purl fying the entire alimentary c anal be fore putting more foo d into the atom ac h, Just as soap and hot water cleanse freshen the skin, so hot water and limestone phosphate act on the elim inative organs. Those who wake up with bad breath, coated tongue, nasty taste or have a dull, aching head, sallow complexion, acid stomach; others who are subject to bilious attacks or constipation, should obtain a quarter pound of lime stone phosphate at the drug store. This will cost very little but is suffi* oient to demonstrate the value of ln s i<j e bathing. Those who continue it each morning are assured of pro n()UnC ed results, both in regard to health and appearance.—Adv. those helmets saved ou *'i was stunned for hard that the rim of my helmet gashed my neck. "Sergeant Peck's helmet was also There wasn't any use talking— r lives. a few minutes and aw. kened sorta sickish, but I managed to crawl to an adjoining dug out and summon aid. We found Mil ler and Rismiller dead and the others wounded. As for me—I awakened in the hospital." I went on over to see Seregant p t >ck. He lay close by on a cot, with a box-like arrangement protecting bln left leg, which had been amputated L low' the knee. "I'm thankful I only lost part of that leg," he s .d. smiling cheerfully. And then he looked anxious. "Say," he whispered, "please fluence that nurse to give me some more Thanksgiving turkey. She thinks I'm sick." The men named by Pegler in the above story were mentioned in the casualty list announced from Wash ington Wednesday. LONG QUESTION PROPOUNDED TO THE ALIENISTS i I | WVidIo T.ifo nf Mrs Tip Rnul Wnoie Jjlie OI mrs. ue oaul in 20,000 les Reviewed Word Query Submitted to Expert Witnesses. Mlneola, L. I., Nov. 30.—Answering a 20,000 word hypothetical question. Dr. J. Sherman Wight, defense alien ist, declared today that Mrs. Bianca De Saulles was "not responsible" when she killed her divorced husband, John L. De Saulles. Under New York state law. a person who "lacks responsibility" at the time of committing a crime cannot be pun ished for it. In hts reply to the long question, Dr. Wight declared that Mrs. De Saulles "did not know the nature and quality of the act committed," and that she was not mentally sound the night of Aug. 3. when she shot De Saulles. Every juror in the box has said ho] will acquit Mrs. De Saulles If he has a "reasonable doubt" of her sanity on that night. The 29,000 word question was read ; only once, all alienists being In the room and listening at the same time. De Saulles, who had entered I cheerily, looked downcast and slight color faded from her cheeks as Defense Counsel Smith read the lengthy query which made mention of nil the sadness and tragedy in her life. One of the jurors dosed. He was awakened by his neighbor. The question, which took up the en tire history of Mrs. De Saulles' life from the time she fell and hurt her head, when eight years old, concluded: "Assume doctor, that in addition to all the foregoing, that upon various dates mentioned in the people's ex hibits. she wrote these exhibits (love letters to De Saulles.) "Assuming all the foregoing facts and having tn mind your personal ex aminations of them. In your opinion was the defendant mentally sound at the time of the shooting on Aug. 3 1917?

LIQUOR SEIZED IN IDAHO TO BE HELD FOR GOVERNMENT Estimated 5000 Gallons Now in Hands of Officials—Al cohol Be Extracted Says Attorney General. Liquor seized from bootleggers and confiscated by officials in Idaho, will probably be turned over to the fed eral officials, that they may follow out the government's plan to have the alcohol contained in the beverages, ex tracted and put to government use. Tn response to a query from County Attorney Henry S. Gray of Nez Perce county, Assistant Attorney General A. [ C. Hindman sets forth the matter has 1 been called to the attention of the fed- ! eral officials. The county attorney of Nez Perce country wanted to know what disposition could be made of the liquor in the possession of county' of ficials. In reply the assistant attorney general said: NOT WASTE ALCOHOL. "This office is in receipt of your communication of recent daje relative to the whisky which the sheriff of your county has seized and now lias in his possession. "I appreciate fully the economic w r aste that would be involved in de stroying this liquor, particularly' at a time when alcohol is much needed in the conduct of war operations. Upon receipt of your letter we addressed a communication to the United States commissioner of internal revenue Jit Washington, D. C., explaining the sit uation that obtains in this state, and asking him to suggest some method by which the alcohol in this whiskey can be conserved. In the state of Ida ho at the present time, there are prob ably upwards of 5000 gallons of liquor held by the sheriffs of the various counties. I do not anticipate there will be any difficulty in having this liquor turned over to the federal au thorities upon a proper receipt to the sheriffs. Nor do I believe anyone would question the right of the sheriffs to dispose of the liquor in this manner in lieu of destroying it. "On receipt of a reply from the com missioner of internal revenue, 1 will advise you further." NOTICE. The "Grant Six" has discontinued leasing out their machine shop and the present management lias employed expert mechanics and will do general repair work. I. BARBOUR, Adv. D2. Manager. OCTOBER WEATHER THROUGHOUT IDAHO The general summary for October wenther given In the Idaho section of Climatological Data, issued by the United States weather bureau, shows varied weather over the state, a dry month and but little snowfall In the mountains. The report reads as fol lows: The month, as a whole, was slightly warmer than usual, but there were two [short periods of unusually cold weather, one culminating about the 118th and the other about the 29th. The second of these was very severe in the eastern counties, where previous rec ords for low temperature 111 October were broken. Many potatoes were so badly frozen as to be worthless from a commercial standpoint, and some dam age was done to apples. The month was. with one exception, the driest and brightest October on record. There were no severe storms, and except in some of the mountain areas the snow fall was unimportant. The weather was very favorable for farm work, but at the close of the month many apples, potatoes and sugar beets remained in the fields. The dry weather was un favorable for winter wheat, although! that which was sown soon after the copious rain that occurred over most of the state toward the close of temher made good growth. Dark of ITlOBt Kp ,,_ _ k of moisture retarded plowing and seed ing, and the area sown to winter wheat was smaller than had been hoped for. Pastures and range feed were very dry. but stock was generally In good con dition. The roads were dry and duty. PRECIPITATION, The monthly mean for the state as shown by the records of 103 stations, [was 0.20 Inch. The mean departure. from the normal for 43 stations hav ing ten or more years' record was thoj.—1.06 inches. The greatest monthly amount was 233 Inches at Burke, while 28 stations reported no precipitation and 29 stations only a trace. The greatest amount in 24 hours was 0.90 inch at Burke on the 27th.
