Sleep striking, the latest suffragette weapon against the home office, won a quick release from prison for Sylvia Pankhurst, its inven tor. She was released on "cat and mouse" license from Holloway jail last, night in a weakened condition because she refused to sleep, eat and drink while she was ton fined. Miss Pankhurst, since her imprison ment, Dec. 10, adopted the more drastic method of adding a "no sleep strike" to her "hunger and thirst strike." She ac complished this by continually walking. 'In your majesty s name, a noble woman is being done to death. We call upon your majesty to stop the crime be fore it is too late." This was a message referring to Em meline Pankhurst's latent arrest that suffragettes yesterday telegraphed to King George, according to a statement from MrsJ Dacre-Fox at yesterday's weekly meeting of the Woman's Social & Political union in Knightsbridge hall. Irp. Dacre-Fox declared that the suf fragettes intended no insult to King George and Queen Mary in Saturday night's disturbance at. the Covent Gar den opera. CALL EUGENIC LAW "ABSURD."

How to put the postal savings bank system on a paying basis is the problem which is now be ing considered jointly by the postoflice department and the House committee on poetoffices and post roads. Popular im pression to the contrary, the postal sav ings svstem is not the success that it might be. The jservice has eoBt the country $1,486,000. Against this the government has received in interest from banks selected as postal savings deposi taries $537,032. There has been, there fore, a net loss of nearly $1,000,000. The reasons for this loss are very simple. In the first place, the limit of $500 which it is permitted any individ ual to deposit is too low. The tendency is steadily toward larger and larger de posits. In 1H12, for instance, the aver age deposit was $!3. The 1913 figures show that the average has risen to $102, and is steadily going up. In fact, ac counts are frequently turned away be cause the law forbids the acceptance of more than $500 in a single deposit. The postmaster general, it is understood, will in his first anual report recommend that the limit be removed altogether. The second reason for the failure of the postal savings system is that the government does not secure profitable rates of interest from the banks. Ac cording to the law, interest at the rate of 2'i per cent, is collected by the gov ernment lor postal savings money depos ited with local banks. The banks, how ever, loan the money out at interest rates of from 6 to 8 per cent. Hanks which pay" 3 and 4 per cent, on savings deposits, the postermaster general be lieves, could well afford to pay 3 per cent, on deposits of as permanent a character as those of the postoflice. The department is considering the proposition of raising the rate to be paid by banks to 3 per cent. Uy remov ing the limited deposits it ip reckoned that a double quantity of money can be handled by the present postoflice force without increasing office expenses. The raising of the limit plus the charg ing of half a per cent, more of interest from the banks, will, it is hoped, turn the postal savings deficit into a profit. The postal savings system is over two years om, ana, according to tnose m Washington who are most familiar with its actual operation, the following re sults are apparent: That the postal banks have not pulled money from local banks to any extent. That the bank is chieflv used in cities having a large percentage of foreign-born population, while in small rural commu nities scarcely any use is made of it. That the money deposited in it is chiefly savings that were formerly hoard ed, i That the money deposited has not been sent away to foreign, countries to any extent. That the two per cent, bonds offered to postal bank depositors have not proved to be a popular investment. No man or woman who eats meat reg ularly can niake -a mistake by flushing the kidneys occasionally, says a well known authority. Meat forms uric acid, which excites the kidneys, they become overworked from t the strain, get slug gish and fail to filter the waste and poi sons from the blood, then we get sick. Nearly all rheumatism, headaches, liver trouble, nervoiiHiiess, dizziness, sleepless ness and urinary disorders come from sluggish kidneys. , the moment you feel a dull ache in the kidneys or your back hurts, or if the urine is cloudy, offensive, full of sediment, irregular of passage or attend ed by a sensation of scaltling, stop eat ing meat and get about four ounces of Jad Salts from any pharmacy; take a tablespoonful in a glass of water before breakfast, and in a few days your kid neys will act fine. This famous salts is made from the acid of gropes and lemon juice, combined with lithia, and has been used for generations to flush and stim ulate the kidneys, also to neurtalize the acids in urine so it no longer causes irritation, thus ending bladder weak ness. Jad Salts is inexpensive and cannot injure; makes a delightful effervescent lithia-water drink which everyone should take now and then to keep the kidneys clean and active and the blood pure, thereby avoiding serious kidney compli cations.
