The ready money has again brought another lot of very fine up-to-the-minute COATS including some of the new full backs. These all go on sale at the same reasonable prices that have been the talk of the town all season. ahi m m.

I cannot, I will not, re cord my name to a signal act of hard ship for a large portion of the country when the same thing can be accomp lished by the action of individual .states where the people want and are ready for suffrage. The race ques tion has been a fearful load to the south, and as a representative here of the whole country I cannot get my consent to increase the burden. "It is good to see a statesman who thinks of the interests of the whole country, who will not change his life long opinions overnight, who does not bow to the political fashion of the hour. Mr. Borah has no illusions about the might of a policy which both parties are rivaling each other to get votes from. "You may say to the women of my state that, whatever they may conclude with reference to me individ ually, they will undoubtedly get the amendment. I am too familiar with the times and the things which con trol these matters in these days to be 1'ieve for a moment that anything ex cept pure political expediency will at last obtain. It has become here a football between the parties, not as j to what is right or as to what is to 1 the best interests of our government j or what is just and equitable as to : the south, but wherein does lie the 1 That Dark-haired^ Chap from Virginia % small chew of Gravely holds its good taste.

My standing with my colleagues, continues Mr. Borah, 'My place in public estimation, my influence here would be dissipated and disappear along with my self-respect, were I to vote for a measure that deprives each state of the right to regulate and control its own elective franchise.' And so the losing cause pleases Cato. Political courage looks all the more engaging for its rarity." D. F. RAE. A letter descriptive of his experience in Italy has been received recently from S. E. Hutton, who, after attaining the M. S. E. rating, was sent from France into Italy on special detached service, Mr. Hutton speaks enthusiastically of his surroundings.

OF SUNNY ITALY FORMER EDITOR OF THE STAR MIRROR DESCRIBES SCENERY IN THAT COUNTRY 5TÏI of the other lakes in its vicinity. It is a beautiful place, rivalled only by Japan, • D , , ln m y 1,m,ted experiences. Rugged, tree and-shrub clad mountains rise right out of the lake, with little villages at their bases and with houses of white or gray walls and red tile soofs standing out in sharp contrast to the rich green foliage on their sides. Distant snow-covered ranges show their heads above the nearer mountains, and an ever-changing pano rama is reflected in the lake as the steamer wanders from village to village, and from one shore to the other. I am enclosing a picture postcard of Mcnaggio where we spent the night, rising in time for an early boat. We were richly re warded by the beautiful morning for our sacrifice of sleep. I have been as much surprised and pleased with Italy and the Italians as I was surprised and • disappointed in France. Hull House and Chicago's "Little Italy" are not the best sort of introuction to the Italians. I am aston ished at the variety of types I see here, and the populace of many American towns might be considered to suffer in ' a comparison with the people here in matters of appearance and intelligence. I shall be very happy to rctflrn to the States, however, at the end of the 'period of the emergency, unless sooner dis charged.' "Occasionally I see groups of refugee and orphan children, boys and girls, many of them strikingly handsome and apparently intelligent : and I think the least 1 could do would be to bring one I of them home and give it a better chance _ than it is likely to have here, The idea ' j appeals to me strongly." j : I 2J RENEWED TESTIMONY ! m if No one in Moscow who suffers backache, headaches, or distressing urinary ills, can afford to ignore this Moscow woman's twice-told story. Tt is confirmed testimony that no Mos cow resident can doubt. Mrs. W. H. Beardsley, 309 N. Wash ington St., says: "For years I suf fered from rheumatic pains and my Jji limbs ached. My ankles wefe weak and I couldn't walk very well. I suf- br fered from bladder trouble, too. Ui Whenever I felt an attack of the >j| trouble coming on, I used Doan's Kid- br rtèy Pills and they gave me relief."

No so ie liciting was done for the lunches as IQ the articles were hastily gathered on K short notice. K Owing to the shortage of sugar and |g the high price of butter, the committee may feel compelled to change the con S tents of the boxes so as to call for g fewer cakes and cookies and home 3 made candies. Articles like pencils, S post cards, and extra apples may be E substituted. It is hoped, however, □J that it will never be necessary to S omit sandwiches as they are a very E popular element of the lunches, a In future those who wish to contrib q] ute but who can not give articles s made with sugar and butter are cor y dially invited to donate money. No ra matter how small the sum is (and this 5 means as low as five cents) the corn el mittee will be glad to receive any gift. 3 Yesterday a young man left town 5 to join a party at Colville to entrain g there for the army. To the regret of 9 the ' 1 canteen committee, it was not S aware of the calling of the drafted g man until he boarded the train at the 3 station, and it had only the chance to a extend to him and his wife and Child = ren the good wishes of the Red Cross I of Moscow. If his going had been n reported by friends or relatives to = the canteen committee, a fine lunch I box would have been prepared for jj him even tho he did not belong strictly * to the Latah county group. If he I goes through Latah county, he is well n entitled to this courtesy. The committee earnestly hopes that jj in future it will be kept more fully i informed of the movements of drafted ' and limited servie« men.

Robbins in the Medical Corps and stationed near the front in France: hospital today, was wounded yester day, but not serious; he was shot in the hand, the bullet passing through his little finger, but I don't think he will lose it. He and a sergeant were out locating machine gun nests, and I uess they sure found them; got in etween two. through some let them pass and they came right on top of the other and he let the guns go and also the one who let them pass, and from the way he talks things were pretty exciting for a while. He also got some gas but not very much, and I don't think that will hurt him any. It is sure great that he was brought to this hospital with hundreds of them on this front. Don will write tomorrow.
