Good Clothes at Peace Prices OU can get the best clothes made at peace prices. If you've been war saving, change to peace-saving. It isn't that prices generally have gone down; prices may go still higher before they go lower. But we've marked lower prices on a lot of our fine suits and overcoats; sort of a peace celebration; a chance for men coming home from the camps of war to get civilian clothes economically; a chance for men who have been here all the time to save some money. Hart Schaffner & Marx clothes and other things at money-saving prices Good all-wool Suits at $20 to $30; and reductions on all Hats, Underwear, Collars, Ties, etc. Of course you know that this is our regular January RED TAG SALE.

English Demand Demobilization In the peace congress and prompt action CHAOS IS CLOSE AT HAND LONDON, Jan. 5.—The past week has witnessed a strong and general demand from the most influential British newspapers, regardless of politics, for the prompt meeting of ♦o stem the tide of chaos which is stead of Retaining Army for Foreign Police Duty. Uhreatening Germany because of the introduction of bolshevism by way of I the border states. There is a dawn t ing recognition that if anarchy seizes central Europe the decisions of the peace congress in drawing boundaries and levying indemnities can be ( enforc ed only through military control by the allies, otherwise becoming merely "scraps of paper.'' ' The chief desire of the British peo pie is to have the army demobilized as quickly as possible. The labor ele ments in particular oppose the reten tion of a large conscripted army for the policing of foreign territories with the possibility of being drawn into conflicts. The Sunday Observer gives warning in line with a growing belief that the most urgent business now before the conquering nations is ' to restore the conquered nations and fell of central Europe to a status of ; r . d ".. a t 1. n .r , a."p V iSbK, 50methi " e il Protest Five-year Control.

Now I was through the Nezperce scourge and at Vollmer when it was at its height and, believe me, I have seen some pitible cases and none sad der has ever touched me from a hu mane standpoint. I wish to say to the people of Mos cow, I have had the disease and caught it when I was doing all I could for the other parties and pa tients and it is a debilitating disease and on that account is to be dreaded. I am forced to leave Moscow for my own health and shall return just as soon as I think I am able to take up my practice here in Moscow an» vicinity. Personally speaking I have always favored a house quarantine just the same as for smallpox, but the author ities have done the very best they could and we and you and everyone should support them and be careful about your having this little party or that little assembling together, it is a risky business and will bring sorrow to your own household. When you know of a sick person it is your duty to report it to your local health officer and let him run it down and if it is so all well and good; take the proper precaution and it is better for all concerned. It has became quite a fad to rush into print on such occasions as this but I can assure you this is the first time that I have said a word in public and before going away thought that I would say just a few words and pos sibly it would be helpful to some who may care to read this short note. We are not through with this trouble yet and time will prove the wisdom of my assertion if the people are not more careful. 1 Respectfully submitted, DR. JAMES J. HERRINGTON.
