Breast Tea, or as the German folks
call it, "Ilamburger Brust Thee," at any
pharmacy. Take a tablespoon ful of thV
tea, put a cup of boiling water upor
it, pour through a sieve and drink t
teacup full at any time during th.
day or before retiring. It is the most
effective -way to break a cold and cure
grip, as it opens the pores of the skin,
relieving congestion. Also loosens the
bowels, thus breaking up a cold.
Try it the next time you -suffer from
a cold or the grip. It is inexpensive
and entirely vegetable, therefore safe
and harmless.

By Wm. Phillips Simms

Stockholm, Dec. 7. (By Mail)
Sweden is perhaps the most divi
ded country in the universe of the
war. One could not say with
truth that Sweden is pro-Ally or
pro-German. There are many fac
tions and each looks at the great
conflagration in its own way.
Most everybody is anti-Russian
a great many are anti-British a
small circle are pro-German, but
everybody is pro-French, even the
pro Germans. A strange paradox
but a true one. Still Sweden as a
nation is neither pro-Ally nor pro-
Prussia.
The Russian antipathy is his
toric. Sweden used to be on both
sides of the Baltic. Russia took
Finland and for generations Swe
den has feared Russia some day
would try to go further west, bla
zing a way to open ports of the
Atlantic. German propaganda
has helped this feeling along.
France, one and all say, has
been the ideal country in this war,
from the first gun till thelast. She
has fought like a lion and unsel
fishly. She has put herself, heart
and soul into the struggle and has
always fought strictly according
to Hoyle. Her attitude has been
nobility itself and not even the
pro-Germans seems to hope for her
defeat.
Howrever, in this pro-German
crowd, one hears that England is
using France for her own selfish
purposes. According to them
England is aiming at world-domination
and that if the Allies win
and Germany is crushed, England
will have her hand on the world's
windpipe and can throttle it at
leisure, commercially and other
wise. And as proof of what England
will do they point to the English
blockade. Even now, they claim
Sweden is being sorely pinched
economically by the action of the
English fleet. The cost of living
has gone up from 40 to 100 per

Lime may be present in the soil
in many forms. Most frequent

complex silicates. As a matter of

in this form. The quantity in the

Should England become all-pow

a crushed Germany, what then
would happen to Sweden?
I asked President Carl Frisk
"England has tried to arrange
with Sweden to allow Sweden to

But the pro-German element re
fuse to agree to this."
