There is a decided cnange in the

adopting a defensive attitude, owing
to the weakness of Austria. Austrian
news is now the key to the war. A
collapse of this resistance is appre

the big war sufferer.
Washington dispatches cover feeling
out of peace possibilities by all coun

stands in the path of immediate peace.
Without doubt Austria is the weak

Visitors at the Illinois state fair this
year are to be afforded the opportunity

of seeing the most unique
Instructive health exhibit yet snown
in this country. It will be entirely
different from any former health ex
hibit wherein it is to be a demonstra
tion of health facts by means of me
chanical models, cartoons, and other
Ingenious devices, rather than a dis
play of cold statistical facts and pla
cards setting forth more or less un
welcome advice. The character of this
year's exhibit will be such that every
man. woman and child "attending the
fair will want to see It; noqe will see
it without profiting thereby.
Seven large booths will be occupied
by this exhibit in the balcony of the

more interesting features will bo the

As an effective method of calling

nothing has yet been devised that

in bed and at the ordinary breathing
intervals the exhaled breath is seen
as it leaves the nostrils. Just as we see
our breath on a frosty morning- In the
room with closed windows and doors,
the unventilated room, the air soon
becomes so thick and foul that the
figures in bed can hardly be seen,
whereas In the room with opea win
dows, the air keeps clear and fresh.
The contrast in the air conditions of
the closed and the open room Is so
striking as to leave a lasting impre3

The remedy the open windows is

designed to impress this fact unon the

the booth containing the breathing 1
dolls is another in which numerous in

When one stops to consider that im
proper ventilation and foul air are
chiefly responsible for the develop

of 20,000 citizens of this state every
year, the need of popular-instruction
along these lines is at once apparent.
To Save the Babies.
In the Child Hygiene and Infant Wel

of great popular interest. First of

Plan to Pave Hill1 District by
Private Contract Falls
The property owners in the Twenty
first street paving district on the hill
have receded from their stand taken
some time ago when on petition the
city council gave them the right to
lay concrete or macadam streets by
I private contract.
Tuesday evening a meeting was held.
Property owner3 on Twenty-first
:treet between Sixteenth and Twenti
eth avenues were present, as were
those on Sixteenth and Twentieth
avenues fcrtween Twentieth and Twenty-second
Those present at the meeting voted
unanimously to give charge of the
work of paving the district over to
the board of local Improvements,
claiming that they found it expedient
to do so. The owners, however, still
favor he use of concrete on the speci
fications they have prepared.
