i AGAIN TO FORE
Rtply to German Communication
1HGLISH DRAFT NOT STARTED
Believed State Department May Con
sider British Blockade In Light of
Reprisal and Therefore Illegal Will
Deny Right to Nullify International
Law to Suit Certain Geographical
Situations of Belligerents.
"Washington, Aug. 7. In tho Inter
val that Is to elapse before a third
Tan-American conference on the Mexi
can situation Is held the attention of
the state department will be concen
trated once more on several problems
rowlng out of the controversy with
the European belligerents. These mat
ters have necessarily been pushed to
one side In tho last few days ns a re
sult o' the Mexican deliberations. The
two matters of greatest Importance
nro tho replies to tho Gorman note In
t'ao Fryc case and the sovcral British
rotes defending tho Interference with
American trade with neutral coun
tries. Tho reply or tho United States
Id the Krye caselmu been drafted, and
probably will be submitted to trio
president In a day or two. No noto to
Great Britain has yet been dra'ted,
tut much preliminary work has been
done on that subject and little delay
It Is likely that full advantage will
be taken by the administration of the
opportunity afforded by the British
refcronco to Germany's conduct as
justifying what England In doing.
Language quite similar to that used
in the notes to Germany, Informing
her that the United States could not
admit Into Its controversy with Ger
many any of Germany's complaints
against Great llrltali probably will
be found In tno note to Great Britain.
Asldo from the legal aspect of the
Rituallon, olilclals here aro delighted
at the opportunity thus alforded thorn
to lay It on Great Britain in a way
which Is likely to mollify those who
feel that tho United States has been
Klving Germany alone tho rough edgo
ot its tongue.
Officials aro considering tho possi
bility of pressing this advantage still
further in the reply to Great Britain.
By some it Is felt that tho United
States would be Justllled in declaring
that Great Britain In admitting that
her blockade Is a retaliation for tho
submarine operations of Germany has
acknowledged by Implication that her
llochado Is a reprisal and thero!ore
teyond the law. By others tho opin
ion 1b held that Great Britain was
clever enough In writing her noto to
ctop Just short of actually admitting
that her blockado measures are to bo
viowed ns n reprisal. On the other
hand, it Is claimed that while this
nay be true tocnlcally, as a matter of
fact tho British havo sought to Justiry
their blockado measures by claiming
them to bo a necessary retaliation
Ag&lnHt the Illegal and Inhumane prac
tices of Germany and should he called
to account accordingly.
As tho British note Is being studied
other points to lie raised In contra voli
tion or the British argument nro being
developed. It Is now certain that tho
American reply will concede practical
ly nothing of tho British argumont
anfi that It will evade the "deadly par
allel" of tho Amorlcnn civil war
cases by maintaining that tho rnnclu
Bions along this line drawn hy tho
Ilrltlsh realy aro not justllled by tho
facts In tho two situations.. Great
'Britain will bo charged with trying to
nullify clrcumstnnro duo to tho phys
leal fnrt of geography; tho United
Hates will contend tlint It can not ac
cept thin view; that tho rules of block
ade or tho application of thorn can bo
altered to lit the geographical facts of
a rarttcilar situation.

LEARN TO SWIM;
MAY SAVE YOUR LIFE
People fall into a sudden panic in I
the surf, or any other tideway for that!
matter, and get drowned. Excited sur-,
vlvors nnd still, more excited writers
hold forth on the terrors of the under
tow, the awful "cut" of the tide racing
along tho shore, the murderous magic
of the "sea purse," or "sea puss," as
the flsherfolk call it, that destroys lives
llko the fabled dragon.
Bosh! Pathetic, but bosh just tho
same. It Is not tho sea that drowns.
It Is the folly of the victims them
selves. This statement is not a very
kindly epitaph for the poor creatures

truth. Tho saddest thing Is that these
deaths might be ho easily avoided.
How? By watermanship that is, by
knowing how to employ the water as a
friend, no matter how rough it may be
for a while. This does not mean great
swimming ability; It needs only good
water-sense. I guarantee that any one
who will abide by the suggestions here
to follow will be safe in tho surf on
any bathing beach In tho world. 1 havo

But bolng a swimmer is only the be
ginning of wntermanshlp. I learned
the real art from a hoy called Bull
head, who was the most obstinate little
chap In our village. Ho refusod to list
en to us big follows of 12 who tried
to niiilco him study first how to keep
his head abovo surface.
"I'd Just as soon swim underneath
as on top," he told us. And this is pre
cisely what ho did. Ho stood about 10
feet olf shore, where tho water was
In east dcop, drew n long breath and
Hopped to tho bottom. Thero ho swnm
along gayly three, four, half n dozen
stiokes moving with tho easo of a
fifth, And when the breath became
scant ho Just stood up on his feet mid
breathed all ho wanted.
Soon Hint little rascal got to bo on
tho most chummy terms with tho wa
ter of that crook. Ho played around
benenth tho surfaco until it wns ns
pleasant to him to bo thero as in the
bottom of a bathtub nt homo and
with no more Idea. of danger.
Thero was his happy secrot.- Ho had
forgotton that tho wator hod such a
thing as destructive power. It was his
playmate. After a whllo ho discovered
that ho could swim near tho top or on
tho top of tlio wator whenever ho
chose, and from that tlmo forth he
wns easily the best swimmer and div
er in tho village. Why? necauso ho
wns a completo waterman.
Anybody who will glvo a little tlmo
and effort to tho task con become as
oxpert a waterman as Bullhead. And,

much roll and thrust for tho average
person to keep his mind on the prob
lem of learning how to be happy
though Immersed. But if you once got
clearly In' mind the fun there is in
playing In and under tho wnter you
will find it the most fascinating pas
time in the world to swim below the
surface, eyes wide open, enjoying the
sight of pebbles glorified by refrac
tion Into gems, and laughing at the an
tics of the scampering fish. I have of
ten offered to bet that I can read a
paper under ten feet of clear water,
and some day I shall actually do it.
If a swimmer once masters this not
difficult habit of watermanship ho Is
ready for the great adventure of play
ing in the surf. No matter how the
big waves roll ho will still be tho mas
ter of the situation. For he will havo
learned that "tho water is his faithful
host, seeking only to entertain him.
Suppose there Is a heavy undertow;
ho goes with it. Or, If thero Is n "set"
of tho tide running strong oft shoro lie
goes with that. The chief thing Is not
to fight the water. Bo friendly. Go
with it. It does not want to hurt you.
The strongest twisters that roll up
and carom off the shore, carrying all
before them, soon lose their power,
spread out as a pall of smoke spreads
ot in tho upper air.
Tho average person nt play in the
surf when a heavy undertow is run
nlng knows nothing about this. He
suddenly finds it is not easy to get
back to the shore, fights lustily, dis
covers ho Is not advancing, then bo-
comes panic-stricken, suffers heart
stroke and dies.
What is the safe play? Nonresist
enco. You know that when a billiard
ball with a lot of "draw" on it hits the
cushion at an angle and spins awny
It runs furiously along for a, while,
still spinning, theii llttlo by little
slops all motion. So it is with the
extraordinary waves that aro now and
again sent spinning against tho shore

When one of theso freaks of tho sea
grabs you and hustles you off shoro,
don't try to fight its impulse. Go along
qulotly. Turn over on your back and
float. If you aro stout you can float
simply by lying porfectly still. Tho
very thinnest man can keep himself
up for hours by tho smallest motion
of tho hands.
When the forco of tho eddy, or "sea

nowadays has medical treatment at such

her system has received a shock from
which it is hard to recover. Following
right upon this comes the nervous strain
of caring for the child, and a distincl

There is nothing more charming than
a happy and healthy mother of children,
and indeed child-birth under the right
conditions need be no hazard to health oi

that, with all the evidence of shattered
nerves and broken health resulting from

ple time in which to prepare, women
will persist in going blindly to the trial.
Every woman at this time should rely
upon Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable

SLICE OF BREAD
Terrible State of Weakness Ex
perienced By Ipswich Lady.
Cardui Made Her Strong.
Ipswich, S. D. Mrs. Henry Royle,
of this place, says: "I suffered for
nearly 10 years, with womanly trou
ble. Nothing seemed to help mo until
I took Cardui, the woman's tonic. It
made me well nnd strong. Before I
commenced to take Cardui, I could not
stand on my feet.
I was so weak, I could not cut a
slice of bread. Now, I can stand all
day, and can do most of my work. I
think Cardui is tho best medicino in
tho world. I have been feeling fino
ever since I began to take it. Cardui
was recommended to. me by a friend,
and I will gladly tell my friends of it."
If Cardui will relieve and cure such
a stubborn and long-standing trouble
as that of Mrs. Royle, then it is only
reasonable to believe it will qulekly
and surely help you, too.
Cardui is the ideal general tonic for
women. It has been found to improve
the appetite and build up the entire
womanly constitution. You can al
ways depend on Cardui, for it has
helped more than a million weak
women in the past BO years, who suf-i
fered from troubles so common to
their sex. Try Card-u-i.
It will help you. Est
