EIGHT TEACHERS ARE ORDERED
DISMISSED BY GOVERNMENT
FOR ALLEGED OPPOSITION TO
LIBERTY LOAN.
Champaign. 111.. Nov. 2-W. H.
Keirlck, lepartment of Justice aeut,
declareil today if eight professors of
the University of Illinois, rharned w ith
disloyalty, are not dismissed the kov
erntnent will take the matter In hand.
Kerrick said the charges will he suh
niitted to (Jovernor Lowden as well as
the government.
The Instructors were summoned ho
fore Mr. Kerrlck and Postmaster
Charles Wehher In the city hall in ',x
J ;na last night to explain their ut
terances. Eight faculty nifmhers and one ntu
dent who appeared before the govern
ment agent laughed, Kiieered and re
..eel t' answer his questions, Ker
ilck charged.
Kerrlck aummoned the accused
teachers after an Investigation of al
leged unti Americanism, which in
i luded opposition to the liberty loan.
Ue I Cross activities and other war
.vrk.
Only two of those summoned re
sTiondei, but eight others appeared un
invited. Those who were summoned und ap
leuel are Dr. A. C. Cole, assistant
professor of history, and Dr. Queen 1
Shepherd, Instructor In philosophy, j
t'amillo Weiss, instructor in struc-1
tural engineering, also was summon
1 bu 'Md not appear.
Dr. Richard Chase Tolmau, profes
sor of chemistry, was among those
"i-.ho appeared uninvited to champion
'he cause of those summoned.
The hoard of trustees of the uni
versity last Summer quietly dropped
four instructors from its faculty for
anti-Americanism, it was brought out
today.
Kerrlck conferred with President
JaniPs before leaving the city.
English Warrior Bravely Describes
Numerous Encounters With the
Ferocious African Beasts.
Once i wax talking with one of those

respondent. Hi had heen away for
uhout three years In the jungles of Af
rica at that time and was giving a
little account of himself.
Among his frank admissions was the
story of holding off u hand of Ashnn
tees for six days single handed, while
he kept busy with two rides and a
revolver. Also he hud got away w 1th a
few tons of illicit Ivory In the African
jungles nnd had plain sis more hull

(Tentally h? had shot a Hon which was

He hud done things like that before,

ressing way when he talked, and when
he dropped buck Into civilization he
continued to wear the wrist watch

"Bally effeminate," he observed,

, Gear Wheels Made of Cotton.
Gears are now being made of or
dinary cotton which outwear those
Hindu from the finest steel. It seems
Incredible, but It Is true, says Popular
Science Monthly.
The very hardness of th metal
gears causes the tee'.h surfaces to
i scrape over1 each nlher when they
mesh, producing hideous screeches and
groans. Everyone of these scrapings
Means a certain amount of wear. '
Teeth made out of compressed cot
ton yield. They are, therefore, noise
less. Compressed with the metal gears,
they are Indestructible. To make
these fiber gears u huge cylinder built
up of cotton disks Is compressed to but
oue-slsteetith of Its former length!
Cold Comfort.
"I was arguing with u fellow about
politics the other day and I'm blest
If he didn't advise me to consult un

man.
"Well! Well!"
"I suppose he thought that a fine
piece of sarcasm?"

WAR BREAD CAUSES TROUBLE
Said to Be Responsible for Digestlv.
Disorders Which Are Followed
by Eruptions.
Reports of lllnesij through eatln;
war bread nre being received from nil
over the country, and the news th:
Lord Rhondda has instituted an it
qulry Into the cause will come as r
relief to many, says the Dundee Adver
User.
The bread Is said to have glvei;
rise to digestive -troubles and thei
eruptions in many districts. This !
said to be due to the fact that sum
bakers tire using Imported flour, whlob
contains beans and rice lngretllottb
which nre quite untlt for breadmnklng
The Inclusion of the germ sets free n
I'irgp percentage of fat which Is un
suitable for weak digestions. Then
of course, regulation flour does in
pessess thf keeping properties which
v. beaten flour does, arid this fact again
(.Ives rise to disorders.
The gray loaf can never be its pal
atable as the whlteone, but It ran be
made equally digestible and nourish'
ing If the necessary precautions are
taken.,. Still, our bread of today, with
all Its defects, Is not its bad as that
.which the Parisians had to satisfy their
hunger nt the time of the siege of
Parts, when a quantity of traw was
mixed with the flour lu order to help
eke out the supplies of grain.

OUR NEIGHBORS IN ILLINOIS
Tell About a New Discovery.
Many local people are glad to testify
to the good results obtained from Anuric,
the discovery of Doctor Piereo of the
Invalids' Hotel. Hnffalo, N. Y., for kidney
and bladder disorders, backache, rheu
matism and all uric acid troubles. This
Is what .Mr. Walter Carlson of inm Sedg
wick Street, Chicago, 111., says
"I suffered for four years with pain In
my back. I tried everything there was
oui nui iney an
failed to help me.
I even went to a
doctor and he
could not cure my
backache. A
friend of mine ad
vised me to try a
box of Dr. Pierce's
Anuric Tablets,
and so 1 did ; 1
used t wo txixes and
the pain were
uone. 1 u in mil
telling any In. the pain in my back was
somcihinu terrible. As soon as I would
blind over U; get something from the Hour
J thought my whole back would burst.
"I would adviso sufferers to try Anuric
and they will liud results; they need not
lake my Word for it."
Hundreds of others in Illinois have been
beiietited or cured. Ask the druggist.
When the kidneys are weak or diseased,
these natural litters do not cleanse iho
blood Kiifliciintly. and the poisons are
carried to all parts of the Irndy. There
follow depression, aches and iain.i, heavi
ness, drowsiness, irritability, headaches,
chilliness and rheumatism, in some peo
ple there are sharti pains in the back
atul loins, distressing bladder disorders
and sometimes obstinate droisy. The
nrii' acid sometimes forms Into gravel
or kidney stones. When the uric'acid
affects the tissues, muscles and joints.
it causes lumbago, rheumatism, gout or
sciatica. This is the. time to iry Anuric,
double strength the discovery of Doctor
Pierce, for kidney trouble and pains in
buck and all over body ! Send Dr. Pierce,
Invalids' Hotel. Hutfalo. N. Y., 10c. for
trial package to prov to you that Anuric
is many times inure potent than Itlhia
ami eliminates? the iu'ie acid fruin liiu
system as hot water nieits sugar.
Coons and Turkeys.
They are hunting coons In Mnsn
chusetts imd oalim,' them. They are
said to be a fine substitute for turkey
more than a substitute, better, That
Is al! right they can eat them. Our
Pilgrim Fathers can eat all the coon
they want. We will take a second help
ing to turkey, declares n writer In the
Columbia State Journal. We try to
imagine the eating of coon. We can't
do It any more than we can think of
eating cat. Rut hunting coons Is dif
ferent. Here Is the process: Take
an automobile. Put In guns, dogs, and
a companion or two, and then, when
far Into the country and near a for
est, unloose the dogs and send them
Into the woods. Soon they start to
barking vigorously nnd there Is a
coon. The pallets tell of one party of
four starting out after dark, returning
at midnight with nine coons. That
couldn't be doue in Ohio, which Is not
a primitive state, like Massachusetts.
Our coon crop Is gone. We ure sorry.
The coon Is a fine animal for coon,
hut not for meat. John Alden und his
merry men are welcome to it.
