Kidney disease is no respecter of per
sons. A majority of the ills afflicting
people today can be traced back to the
kidney trouble.
The kidneys are the most important
organs of the body. They are the Al
térera of your blood. If the poisons
which are swept from the tissues by the
blood are not eliminated through the
kidneys, disease of one form or another
will claim you as a victim.
Kidney disease is usually indicated by
weariness, sleeplessness, nervousness,
despondency, backache, stomach trou
ble, pain in loins and lower abdomen,
gall stones, gravel, rheumatism, sciatica
and lumbago.

hard, tense voice :
"You don't care whether I'm happy

"My angel. I do," he said miserably.
"But I simply cannot permit you to do
that. It is asking too much."
Two tears rolled down her cheeks—

Colonel Roosevelt was a deeply re

"How ^tliis world war has clarified

ideas about religion.
"Before the war I was inclined to
agree with the philosopher who said :
" 'Religion is the experience consti
tuted by those thoughts, feelings and
actions which spring from man's sense
of dependence upon power or powers
controlling the universe, and which
have as their center of interest the
cosmic fortune of values.'
"But how different is the definition of
religion that the doughboy has flung
us from the trenches, and how heartily
is our agreement when lie says :
" 'Religion is betting your life on
the existence of God.' "

Contains No Reference to Monroe ;
Doctrine and No Provisions for 1
Recognition of Racial Equality
Requested by Japan.
Paris.—The draft of the covenant of
the league of nations is now in the
hands of the special draft committee,
having been turned over to the com
mittee on March 27.
The draft of the covenant contains
neither any reference to the Monroe
doctrine nor to the Japanese proposal
for recognition of the racial equality
of nations.
The draft was completed Wednesday
night at a sitting of the full commis
sion, and the covenant is expected to
be ready in completed form early in
the week.
The two amendments
around which has centered the great
est interest and much divergence of
opinion, however, may be offered either
in the council of ten or to the plenary
peace conference, to which the coven
ant must go for final action.
Among other amendments adopted
Wednesday night was one directly
recognizing the principle of woman suf
frage, in that it provides that the of
fices of the league are open to women
as well as to men.
The much-discussed question as to
the policy of the withdrawal from
membership in the league of nations
was settled by an amendment rmu
ting withdrawal on two years' notice,
but not until such nation has filled out
its international obligations.
Article X of the covenant, to which
the Monroe doctrine amendment would,
apply, stands in its original form,
President Wilson having reserved for'
tiie present the amendment which had
been prepared as expressing the views
of the American delegation. It is now,
explained that it was not the exact
text, but only the general form of the
amendment which was given to the
press, and that hence criticism must
be withheld for the present.
Careful soundings are being taken to
ascertain the reception that is likely
to be given this amendment by other
delegations. If unfriendly sentiment
develops or the pressing of other and
obnoxious amendments is threatened
as a consequence of insistence upon the
Monroe doctrine, it is said the amend
ment may be altogether withheld.

Satisfactory Progress in Plan of Erad
ication Made During First
Year of Work.
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
The tuberculosis-free accredited herd
plan, inaugurated in December, 1917,
and worked out in co-operation with
the bureau of animal Industry, United
States department of agriculture, was
slightly changed at the twenty-second
annual meeting of the United States
Live Stock Sanitary association held
at Chicago in December. It was agreed
to strike out the word "purebred" so

as to admit to certification grade
herds in addition to registered cattle.
The annual conference between rep
resentatives of the United States Live
Stock Sanitary association and the
Purebred Cattle Breeders' association
resulted in the further indorsement of
the tuberculosis eradication campaign
and a recommendation that the work
be extended as rapidly as possible.
The accredited-herd plan is to test
cattle with tuberculin at the request
of the owner, eliminate any reacting
animals either by slaughter or by fol
lowing prescribed sanitary measures,
repeat the test at prescribed intervals,
and list as tuberculosis-free accredited
herds all herds entitled to that dis
Very satisfactory progress has been
made during the first year of the
work, and prospects for the future are
bright. During the year 296 herds,
comprising 9.284 cattle, have been
fully "accredited" as free from tuber
culosis, and 1.462 herds, having 35,052
cattle, passed one successful test in
preparation for certification. In addi
tion 4,622 herds, both purebred and
grade, totaling 9S.002 animals, have
been under supervision for the eradi
cation of tuberculosis. Each month
additional herds are added to the list.
According to Experiment Carried on
at Maryland College Thirty
Months Is Best Age.
About thirty months was found to
be the best age for Ayrshire heifers
to drop their first calf, according to
an experiment carried on at the Mary
land Agricultural college. If the
calves were dropped six months ear
lier, the milk flow was lessened con
siderably, but if dropped six months
later the decrease was slight. This
will vary for the breeds according to
size; the smaller the breed type, the
shorter the time. Eekles of Minnesota
found that this variation would be
three to five months which would
bring the minimum age for Jerseys
and Guernseys about twenty-five
months and for Holsteins, thirty
months. This is for well-developed

Description of Head-Dress Worn by
Women Some Centuries Ago Ap
pears Almost Incredible.
Fashion plays constant pranks with
a woman's hair. Addison says in the
Spectator of 1718: "There is not so
variable a tiling in nature as a lady's
head-dress ; within my memory I have
known it to rise and fall above 30
degrees." In the reign of Henry YL
ladies wore horns, having on each side
ears so large that when they would
pass through the door of a room it
was necessary to turn sideways and
stoop. It was Judged necessary to en
large the doors of the Chateau de
Vincennes. The correct angle for The
hair was 45 from perpendicular, which
entailed great strain upon the hair
growing from the forehead,
thought of what we call cleanliness
or even decency was present at the
hairdressing of that day. Not only
was the hair left untouched for a most
revolttngiy long time, but materials
were used in the dressing of the hair
and making the rolls (as Anna Green
Winslow related), which were most
