I could not aleep and had no appetite. I had two doo tora, and had taken ao many different medicines and teund ns help. I ttossfct I will have to give up; but at latt my mother red about Parana, so I thought ot trying that treat medloine Peruna. I cot a bottle of It and In about four daya I almoat stopped coughing, and after a while I surely found relief, and from that time we are not without Peruna in our home." THREE MEMBERS OF EQUALI ZATION BOARD REFUSE IN. VITATION TO ATTEND MEETING i Jefferson City, Mo., May 20. An effort of County Assessors to get a personal explanation from Attorney General McAllister, State Treasurer George Middlekamp and Secretary of State John L. Sullivan as to why they struck down the valuation of property in the State more than $1,000,000,000, faijed today when the three members of the Board of Equalization declined to attend a conference of the Assess ors. When the three members failed to respond to their names on the pro gram here was a general agitation among the Assessors' for a commit tee to wait on them. Invitation Is Rejected. A committee composed of Assessor R. L. Gray, of Moniteau county, As sessor Fred R. Rollins, Platte county, and Assessor John Crawford of Bucn anan county, was appointed to extend a special invitation to the members. They came back with this note from the three: "We appreciate the courtesy of your invitation to address you and regret that at this date our lack of time renders any real discussion of the sub jects of which you are interested im practicable. "Our recent action as members of the State Board of Equalization indi cates to you our views on that sub ject. Dvmand Full Values "We hope you understand our bosi- t.ion and wc assure you we will gladly render you any assistance wo can." A resolution was presented by Jamos Y. Player of the State Tax Commission for tho Assessors to again assess at full value this year. It was tabled after the Assessors said they realized that it was the law, but said their work would be futile so long as McAllister, Sullivan and Midjckamp would strike down the assessments to ihe fractional basis.

Wintzer, former treasurer of the Meyer Supply Co., 22 South Main street, revealed to day Wintzer held German fourth war loan bonds of the value 'of 32,000 marks against one American Liberty War Loan bond costing $100. The German bonds, in American currency, cost' Wintzer approximately $5,877. The present value of the bonds is un determined. Wintzer lived at 3520 Sidney street Receipts show Wintzer on June 29, 1916, purchased German war bonds valued at 22,000 marks, and that on the following day he purchased 10, 000 marks more. Another receipt, dated October 9, 1917, shows he purchased one $100 liberty bond through the Southern Commercial Savings Bank. Inventory of the estate places the value at $78,044.13. Recapitulation by the appraisers reduces this valua tion to $47,059. . The will provides that $10,000 shall be paid to the mother of Wintzor, Mrs. Marie Wintzer, of Hamburg, Germany, in return for 40,000 marks given him for investment.

Manufacturers using sugar, except to make essential food products, have been on strict rations, the united states r ood Administration announc es, in order to assure sufficient sup plies for home canners and tie com mercial manufacturers of preserves. jams, and other food stuffs regarded as essential. The restrictions went in to effect May 15 and limit the con sumption by manufacturers of the less essentials, particularly confec tionery and soft drinks, to 80 per cent or last year s requirements. Manufacturers or nonedable pro ducts will be forced to go entirely without sugar. , Included in the class with confec tionery and soft drinks are condi ments, soda water, chocolate, candies, i .. , ing extracts, chewing gum, cocoa, sweet pickles, wines, cereals, and in vert sugar. Those who entered the business or increased their capacity after April 1, 1918, -however, will be cut off entirely. Manufacturers of essential food stuffs will be permitted to buy suffi cient sugar to meet their full require ments. In this class come preserves and packers of vegetables, catsup and chili sauce, fruits and milk, manufac turers of jam, jelly and preserves, to bacco and explosives, applebuttcr and gylcerine, ice cream (not including sherbet and water ices), druggists (for medicines), and producers of hon ey-.

The London Economist for Febru ary places the total gross debt of Great Britain at 5,678,(500,000 pounds ($27,636,000,000). The French minister of finance in presenting the budget for 1918, esti mated the public debt of France on December 31, 1918, at 115,166,058,000 francs ($22,227,000,000). The public debt of Italy at the end of 1917 is estimated at about 35,000, 000,000 lire ($676,000,000). The debts of the Central Powers are estimated as follows: Germany, $25, 408,000,000; Austria, $13,314,000,000; and Hungary, $5,704,000,000. Our own public debt is now around $8,000,000,000. but more than half of this amount has been loaned to the Allies. It is estimated that of the to tal net expenditures of the United States for the fiscal year 1918, exclu tive of our advances to the Allies, more than one-half will be defrayed by taxation, according to the Treas ury Department. i Give to the Red Cross American Destroyers In Submarine Zone Cover Many Miles. ' Some indication of the ceaseless watch kept on the high seas, in the path of American troopships, by Unit ed States naval forces operating in European waters, may be gained from statistics just compiled at the naval headquarters in London. These sta tistics show that a single force of American destroyers operating from one base had steamed almost 1,600,- 000 miles upto April 1. The maxi mum distance covered by a single de stroyer was more than 680,000 miles from May 1. 1917. to April 1, iai8, This destroyer was one of the first to arrive abroad after war was declared, It has been announced that Vice Admiral William S. Sims, command ing United Slates navel forces abroad. offered: to send an auxiliary., force composed of naval units to the French front at the beginning of the German offensive. .The Chief of Staff of the French navy and General Foch did not consider that the circumstances demanded the presence of such a force at the front. V The French havo had a naval divi sion operating in the forces of. the Lorraine sector lor some time, and the naval units have made their part of the line as shipshape as possible, with everything from big naval guns down to sleeping hammocks and snips' cats.

Military instruction under officers and noncommissioned officers of the Army will be provided in every insti tution of college grado which enrolls for the instruction 100 or more able bodied students over the age of 18. be ginning in September, 1918. The nec essary military equipment will, so far as passible, be provided by the Gov ernment, there will be created a military training unit in each institu tion. Enlistment will be purely vol untary, but all students over the age of 18 will be encouraged to enlist. The enlistment will constitute the student a member of tho army of the United States, liable to active duty at the call of the President. It will, however, be the policy of the govern ment not to call tho members of the training units until they have reached the age of 21, unless urgent military necessity compels an earlier call. Stu dents under 18, and therefore not le gally eligible for enlistment, will be encouraged to enroll in the training units. Provision will be made for co ordinating the Reserve Officers' Train ing Corps system, which exists in about one third of the collegiate insti tutions, with this broader plan.

A. MILLER OZARK BUSINESS COLLEGE FARMINGTON. MO. DRAG, BROTHER, DRAG Ninety-two per cent of all the pub lic roads in Missouri are dirt roads. When properly graded these' roads can best be maintained by using road drags. Here are some simple (elec tric) rules for the proper dragging of earth roads: 1. DRAG AT THE RIGHT TIME. The right time to drag a road is as soon as possible after every rain, when the soil is mellow and pulveriz es readily. Do not drag when the soil sticks to the drag or do not wait .until the soil is too dry before you drag. - 2. DKAG EARLY IN THE SPRING as soon as the frost is out of the ground. Dragging a muddy stretch of road will aid in drying it out, since the wind and sun will have freer ac cess to the thin layer of saturated soil which the drag spreads out over the surface of the road. 3. DRAG BEFORE IT FREEZES. A road dragged before it freezes in the fall, will freeze smooth and us ually remain in this condition for some time. Tho general condition of the road in the spring after winter drag ging will be remarkably good. 4. DRAG A GRAVEL ROAD WHEN WET. A gravel rood should be dragged, as a rule, soon after a rain when the soil is wet but not too saturated. It will be found that the gravel can be worked better when in wet condition. 5. DRAG BETWEEN SHOULDERS. When a road is badly cut up over the entire surface, two complete round trips should be made with the drag. The first trip should be made along the edge of the shoulder. The second trip should be made inside and slight ly overlapping the hrst. This will take up any excess material left by I the first round and will aid in build- j ing up the crown. 6. KIDE THE UKAU. Under or dinary conditions the driver should ' ride his drag. He will soon be able to adjust his position so as to produce the desired effect. By standing on the forward edge, the drag may be made to cut deeper and vico versa. A long hitch causes a down pull and thus increases the depth of the cut while a short hitch tends to lift up on the front blade and decrease the depth of the cut. 7. CARRY PICK AND SHOVEL. The driver should always carry a pick and shovel on his drag. He will find these very useful in opening water courses, filling mud holes and chuck holes, repairing washed places and digging up rocks. 8. DRAG OFTEN. Do not try to build a road with the drag. Its use is to maintain the surface of the road which is already constructed in a smooth condition. The best results are obtained by repeated dragging. 9. USE OFtA LIGHT DRAG. One mistake made in building a drag is to use timbers in the construction of the blades which have too wide a face. A drag in this fashion will pass over the irregularities in the road instead of smoothening them out. 10. SUCCESSFUL ROAD DRAG GING REQUIRES EXPERIENCE. Dragging a road is a business that is best learned in the school of practi cal experience. Every man engaged in dragging must become an enthusi astic and observant student of the road to be dragged if he desires to produce results.

Give to the Red Cross The British meat shortage is being felt more severely than at any time since war was started. That the shortage is not confined to meats, however, is shown by the fact that ef fective control of the milk supply is already being considered, in order to meet a possible greater shortage lat er in tho year, and that some sections of English labor are favoring exten sions of the compulsory rationing system to bread, cheese, and tea. Give to the Red Cross The War Trade Board has limited the importation of crude rubber to 100,000 tons a year, and has instructed its bureau of imports for the current quarter to limit the issuance of li censes to a total of 25,000 tons up to June 31, 1918. Some changes may be made after experiences are gained by this three months' test. Imports of crude rubber during the previous year had been at the rate of 157,000 tons' per annum, so the cut is over one third.
