TRAFFIC NEAR NORMAL IN WEST And the Insurgent Railroad Strikers Are Split by Re volt in Their Ranks SMALL GROUPS GO ' BACK TO WORK John Grunau, the Former Head, Was Out of Prison on Bonds To-day Chicago, April 22. The next move of insurgent railroad strikers In the Chicago district, aplit by a revolt "against their own leaders, was awaited to-day by federal officials and railroad representatives while traffic conditions throughout the middle and far west rapidly returned to normal. In the Chicago district, which first felt the weight of the strike, livestock movement yesterday was reported greater than a year ago. and the rail roads announced 1,148 carloads of coal were moved. On the Pacific coast cars were being placed for fruit shipments. Several '"rebel" leaders, repudiated yesterday by the strikers when at a mass meeting they counseled ending the walkout because they "could not fight the government," abandoned the strike and led small groups of switch men back to the yards. John Grunau, president of the Chi cago Yardmen's association, the first body to go out on the unauthorized strike, was in conference to-day with strikers to determine what course to pursue. He was released from tho Jo lit, 111., jail yesterday on bonds, but LOSS OF APPETITE Pimples and Other Eruptions Mental and Physical Weariness.

POLICE CLAIM THEY DID NOT SHOOT The Metal Workers' Union Is Striking for $7 for a Six-Hour Day Butte, Mont., April 22. City and county authorities to-day investigated a clash late yesterday near the Never sweat mine here in which 14 men were shot. Most of the wounded were said to be pickets placed about the mine following the calling of a strike Sun day by the Metal Mine Workers' union to enforce demands, including a wage of $7 for a six-hour day and release of "all political prisoners." The shooting began, according to the sheriff, while he and a force of deputies were trying to disperse a crowd at the gates or the etocKade about tne mine. The first shot, the sheriff said, was fired from a window of a nearby board ing house and narrowly missed a dep uty sheriff. Immediately afterward he said, "shots were bred in all direc tions." Both police officers and the deputy sheriffs said they fired no shots. Immediately after the shooting an extra, edition of a newspaper calling upon all workers in the county to lay down their tools and stop the wheels of industry" as a protest against the shooting of pickets appeared. Speakers at a mass meeting last night were quoted as urging their hearers to "arm yourselves in eell-derense. A large number of special deputies were sworn in during the night by the sheriff. MIGHT MAKE BILLION DOLLARS IN COTTON Children Cry for Fletcher's If There Were Closer Relations Be tween Cotton Growers and Spin ners, Says H. M. Cottrell. Boston, April 22. An increase of more than $1,000,000,000 a year in the value of rot ton to the growers in this country and a better quality of prod uct tor the spinners could be attained through closer relations between cot ton grower and spinner, H. M. Cottrell of Little Rock, Ark., to-day told the National Association of Cotton Manu facturers in annual meeting here. Growers who produce annually cot ton valued at $2,000,000,000 are with out information from the manufactur ers, Mr. Cottrell said, concerning the grades and staples and the quantities of each required by the spinners, lie unfed the manufacturers to make survey of the cotton gTowing areas in co-operation with local specialists to determine the staples and grades most profitable for each locality to raise and which will be best adapted lor uie spinners' use. A permanent decrease in rot ton acreage unless the movement from the farms to the cities can be checked through making cotton raising more profitable and life on cotton farms more attractive, was forecast by Mr. Cottrell. For the past five years, he said, enormous quantities of cotton have stood in the field until so badly damaged by weather that it brought ess than the cost of production be cause there were not enough pickers to Rather it at the proper time. ftherman Kogers of Acw ork told the manufacturers that by imparting industrial .information to their work ncnien in direct contradiction to the 'lying propaganda of the agitator," they would use the most effective meth od of combatting industrial unrest miring the past summer, he said, J parted coal mines, steel fields, stork -ards and other industrial centers. Everywhere I found a veritable army of agitators. I found working men's homes filled with scores of radical booklets. But I did not, during my whole trip, hear a single contradiction of the bolshevik arguments." He advocated closer relationship lie- ween employer and employe, and de- l clared that "shop representation will I solve fll per cent of all the dilnVultlei I between the management and the I worker."

DOES YOUR BACK ACHE? - If you are troubled with back achea, it is a bet that they are caused by weak kidneys.; they don't perform their duties, and you should look out, as there ia trouble brewing. , When your kidneys get sluggiih and clog, you suffer from backache, head e.che, dizzy spells, and it is more than likelv to brinsf on rheumatism. The urine is often cloudy, full of sediment, your sleep disturbed by being compelled to arise, one or more times during the night, because of the pain, irritation and abnormal condition of the kidneys and bladder. If you will take from 10 to 20 drops of SEVEN BARKS in a little water after meals, you will correct the alka linity of your secretions, thus giving you undisturbed sleep and peaceful rest, preparing you for your next day'a duties. When the kidneys are not doing their duty they allow impurities to accumulate and be converted into uric acid and other poisons, which will cause 'aerious trouble unless they are driven from your system. If you eat meat regularly, you should fluxh the kidneys occasionally with SEVEN BARKS, as meat forms uric acid, which clogs the pores, so they , cannot throw oil the poisons. Don't neglect your kidney trouble with the first symptoms, you will be sorry if you do. .Get SEVEN BARKS of your druggist, at a cost of only 60 cents. Adv.

' Said Theodore ROOSEVELT: ( ( g jWEN men who are not profess i . edly religious must, if they are , frank, admit that no community permanently prospers, either morally or materially, unless the church is a real and vital element in the community life." Put a church in a town and all real estate values increase. Put a church in a town and it becomes at once a center of inspiration for better schools, better politics and general community improvement. Put a church in a town and you insure a community where law and order reign, where the personal and property rights of men and women are respected, where children grow up trained in the ideals that have made America great. : Kill the church and you kill the Voice that is con stantly calling men to more unselfish living. Kill the church and you cut the nerve of your hos pitals, your colleges, your civic organizations and even of respect for government itself.

Re ports from the pring wheat regions of a plan for reduced acreage this year caused the department of agriculture to issue a statenu-nt to-day urging farmers to revise their planting plans. Weather conditions and a shortage of farm labor have affected the planting. but statistics presented by the de partment advised increased production because- of the poor condition of the winter crop and the continued world demand for wheat. The normal requirements for con sumption and export are about , 800, 000,000 bushels. Of this amount only 483,617,000 bushels is indicated from the winter wheat this year. The world demand, it waa pointed out, will be as great as usual and none can be ex pected from Australia becaune of a poor wheat year, and the dutorganized transportation conditions make im probable the movement of the &5.000, 000 bushel Russia has announced she will have ready for export. It wa pointed out that the esti mated 4S.1.617.000 bushels of winter wheat may be even less because of winter killed fields and indications that the hessian fly will be unusually active through large areas. The grass hopper menace, the statement also said, is serious in a large part of the great plains ben. EX-SOLDIERS DOING WELL AT COLLEGE Small Percentage of Absolute Failures Wa Reported By College. "How are the former soldiers doiniz at college?" is a question asked and answered in a recent publication of the I nited Mates bureau of education, de partment of the interior. Summariz ing returns to an inquiry made by one of the church boards of education, the bureau finds that as a rule "the re turned soldier has fallen into his old stride and is doing work about the same as before entering the service." One college president reported that his ex-soldier students had not done very well and that they were restless I and found it hard to concentrate on their work. This same answer was received from another institution where 16 ex-service men had registered at the beginning of the school year. Two of these had withdrawn. The rest did not do as well as hoped because of un rest due to indecision as to the future they wanted to follow and the result ing" quandary as to what preparation they should make. Albion college, however, reported that the majority of ex-service men had done excellent work, especially those who had been in college before entering the service. A number of oth er institutions reported their returned men doing work above the average. The report from Missouri Wesleyan college was that these men were doing far above what they did previous to the war, the grades indicating that the work of the service men is of a very high order. The U per cent students receiving all "A" grades were all ex service men. There were very few failures among the returned men at this college, showing that they realised the benefit of an education and the . importance of hard, diligent work. The majority of schools did not ac centuate either eueces or failure of ex-service men in the firt semester's wrk. but on the whole the men were repjted as having rapidly readjusted themselves to their work. More Surviving Examination!. In answer to a question as to how the student body survived the mid year examinations, the majority of colleges reported an improvement in the average of previous years. As uviial, failures in individual courses were greater in number than failure such as to exclude the student from eontinuing. The percentage of complete failures was variously reported from 2 tj per cent. One school reported financial reasons and reasons other than scholar ship as causing a loss of 42 students; whereas scholarship caused a loss of only I". Of the tiret number six were seniors who were graduated. At the I niversitv of tnattanooga the mid-year examinations showed the lowest percentage of freshman mortal ity in the historr of the university. This was attributed to a bulletin pub lished at the end of each 3l day quls period with the names and scholarship average or the nrt l" in eacn or tue college classes. This stimulated a great dell of profitable rivalry, it is id. Women Averaged Higher. When aoked to compare the grades received by men and women the al- , most universal answer was thst the ; grade of women averaged hicher. ' Thee statements were qualified in ! some cases by supplementary explaua- j tion. i fbancellor Buchtel of the University of !enver calls attention to the fact that women a a rule do not earn their livinp, and that on the other hand a great number of the men earn their living in whole or in part.
