to the cilizens of the United States
who are adverse to war, until war
should lIht* ie ilevitabhle. Indeed,
tis e policy of Presidesurnt Wilson to
wards pea'e, eas it. is being under
stood, is wincdedg for hin the planiud
its of the pis anople. How miuch sane
and ben thr is the policy of peace,
wigl hth national honor and dig
nitheir cmaintaind, than a war wih all
its horrors, when the peace policy
is promissory of assurances that are
greater dld ar ettr than could be
accohe dplished by war.
It is conceded that, in l.j United
Staes there is an eleclassent hich is
loud in their cry for war, but those
patriots would never volunteer to
take up werems and go to the front to
fight and to bleed and to die for
their country.will e noclass clamoring
for war have a greater concern for
pece, the they would profithatt from
such a struggle than the honor or
the dignity of their countryh It
may be said of this class: For gold
they hunger but never thirsteth for
fame."
How long would these warriors
bold favor the invasion of Mexico
if they were forced to the front to
fight the Mexicans?
There will be no war, since the
policy of President Wilson is for
peace, the peace that will sustain
the dignity, the honor and th~glory
of the United States.

AUTOMOBILE HIT
BY TWO STREET CARS
Picked Up by One, Tossed In
Front of Another.
FOUR OCCUPANTS UNHURT
Not a Scratch Did the Parties in
the Horseless Carriage Receive
and Their Escape From Injury
or Death a Miracle.
Four men, an automobile and two
street cars figured in an accident at
Dallas that marks one of the most mi
raculous escapes from death or seri
ous injury any like number of mortals
ever had or will ever have.
An automobile, literally picked up
by a street car and tossed in front of
another, then tossed back again to he
picked up by the first car and finally
crushed between the two street cars
without any of the four occupants of
the automobile receiving a scratch is
a part of the wondrous tale.
Walter McNeny, a real estate man,
was taking two friends from the Hiih
land Park section in his automobile.
Names of other men were E. S. Mills,
Jack Boots and M. Johnson, the ne
gro chauffeur.
The automobille was running beside
a Highland Park car. Further down,
it is said, the chauffeur tried to cut
diagonally across the street in front
of the car p an Oak Lawn car ap
proached trom the opposite direct ion.
The Htghland Park caught the auto
mobile aud hurled it against the other
car. This car tossed the automobile
back ipto the Highland Park car, and
like a football the auto was buffeted
back and forth until it was sandwiched
between the two cars and crushed. The
occupants of the automobile emerged
from it unscathed.

~ake Up Their Duties to Care
for Own Sex and Children.
Chicago's ten policewomen, clad in
modest blue tailormade suits and also
wearing silver stars and hats having
bands, are on duty. Their principal
work is to look out for women and
children.
Details of their duties, apparel and
powers have been worked out by a
committee of women social workers
and the chief of police. The chief had
considered assigning the policewomen
to stations in the red light district, but
it was decided they would be of great
er service in the public'parks and oth
er places of recreation.
The policewomen will visit public
dance halls, excursion boats, beaches
and riliroad stations, and will try to
keep young folks off the street late at
night. They will obtain information
rather than make arrests, though on
occasions they may be called upon to
arrest some one.
Whether the policewomen shall wear
brass buttons and carry revolvers and
clubs will be decided after the civil
service examinations for positions.
Efflolent Offloer Slain.
Patrick Cotter, a young ex-caval
mar, who served in the Philippines,
but left the United States army to join

six months' struggle for a place upon

dates for the position Cotter passed

twenty-five, by three wives, who were
sisters, and of whom the firstcouple of
wives were twins and the third wife
was also one of twins. My mothOr

was one. She had no other children.
All of the other wives' children were
twins. In all there were thirteen boys

WOMAN DIES IN OFFICE.
Fear of Operation Had Much
to Do With It.
After entering the ofilce in Wilson
building, Dallas, of Drs. Atkinson &
Compere for an operation upon her
throat, Miss Ruth Walkup, twenty
four years of 'age, died from the fear
of the impending operstion. State
ments by Drs. H. K. Leake and J. M.
Neel, quickly summoned,make it clear
that the young woman wasfa victim of
hiart disease, and that an acute at
tack was superinduced by the fear of
the operation and her nervous condi
tion.
The death of Miss Walkup was as
sudden as it was unexpected. She had
been In ill health for some time and
was to have submitted to an operation
on the throat as a hope for a perma
nent cure. Dr. Compere was to be the
operating surgeon and the young lady
was placed in the chair. While pre
paring the anaesthetics for the case
Miss Walkup became faint and soon
lost consciousness. Drs. Leake and
Neel attempted to revive her, but she
died in about ten minutes after they
entered the office.
Miss Walkup was a stenographer
in employ of Butler Bros. She re
sided at Dallas several months, going
there from Wichita Pall-, where rela
tives reside.
