THE CALL TO ARMS' The militia of all the states were called to the colors in the following statement addressed to the governors of the various states by Se~r lary of War Baker: "Having in view the possibility of further aggression upon the territory of the United States and the necessity for the proper protection of that fron tier, the president has thought proper to exercise the authority vested in him by the Constitution and the laws and call out the organized militia and the National Guard necessary for that pur pose. "I am in consequence, instructed by the president to call into the service of the United States through you, the following units of the organized mill tia and the National Guard of the state of .............. which the president directs shall be assembled at the state mobilization point ........ (or at the place to be designated to you by the commanding general, eastern depnrt Brig. Gen. A. L Mill. ment), for muster into the service o the United States. "Organizations to be accepted into the federal service should have the minimum peace strength now pre crilbed for organized militia. The maximum strength at which organiza tions will be accepted and to which they should be raised as soon as poe sible is prescribed in section No. 2, "Tables of Organization," United States Army. "In case any regiment, battalion or squadron, now recognized as such, con tains an insufficient number of organl zations to enable it to conform at mu ter to regular army organization ta bles, the organizations necessary to complete such units may be moved to mobllsation camp and there lnspected under orders of the department co~i mander to determine fitness for recog nltion as organised by the war depart ment "Circular 19, division of militia ati fairs, 1914, prescribes the organiza tions desired from each state as part of the local tactical division, and only these organizations will be accepted into service."

"You spend entirely too much money on dress," said the man of the house. "That simple little frock Mrs. Smythe wore last night looked a great deal better than that elaborate gown of yours." "Of course it did, my dear," replied his wife sweetly. "That simple little frock, as you call it, cost three hun dred dollars, while mine cost only a hundred and fifty." "Well, for the love of Mike, go out and buy one about twice as elaborate as the one you've got. Maybe you can get it for nothing." Wield Pen and Sword. The report of the Authors' club of London gives some eloquent figures. Out of 644 members resident in Great Britain, many of whom are far past military age, no less than 171 are in active service in connection with the war. Six have died in action or of wounds and 18 votes of sympathy with memlbers in the death of sons or brothers upon the field of heroism have been adopted. The same hand, it is clear, may wield both pen and sword. Their Use. "Is it true that battles are being won in Europe with cigarettes?" asked the reformer.

The reslnol treatment speedily heals ecze ma, ringworm, and similar eruptions, and clears away disfiguring pimples even when other treatments have been almost useless. Resinol is not an experiment.

For fresh cuts apply Hanford's Baul sam. Adv. Santos-Dumont. Santos-Dumont is visiting many cities in South America in the inter est of the Pan-American aeronautic conference. He was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on July 20, 1878. From 1900 to 1906 he demonstrated to Eu rope the possibility of conquering the air with the dirigible balloon as well as with the aeroplane. He spent in aeronautics alone over $50,000 a year for 12 years in experimentation. While in Paris in 1901 he won a prize of 250,000 francs. He was made cheva lier of the French Legion of Honor in 1904, and in 1990 received the offi cer's cross. Flag for Old Vincennes. The city council of Vincennes, Ind., is considering the adoption of a flag for Vincennes to be used as the city's official emblem during the coming In diana centennial celebration, says the Indianapolis News. The suggested design is intended to set forth the British rule of Vincennes by an old English red "V" in the blue center and the French control by a white fleur-de-lis, which was the na tional emblem of France during the time this territory was under the French government. Radiating from the center there are 18 white stripes, indicating that In diana was the 18th state admitted to the Union. There also are 48 small white stripes, indicating the number of states now in the Union. IS YOUR STOMACH IN A BAD CONDITION?

When a man Just naturally wants trouble it is mighty easy to find an excuse for making it. According to Mike Hogan, Casey and O'Brien were having an argument of their own at Breckinridge street and Barrett avre nue. It had progressed to the extent that each had forgotten wipt it was about originally and they were wholly oblivious of the gathering crowd until an .urbane and genteel person in a frock coat put in. "'Come, come, my man," he said, gently plucking Casey by the sleeve "You don't want to fight; I can tell it by your looks. Your face is too be nign." "Two be nine! Two be nine, is at, ye scut?" bellowed Casey. "Me face is two be nine, is ut?" And there was where the real trouble began.-Louisvile Times. A Protest.
