Many persons, however, have re ceived injuries or contracted disease in tho service and the ill effects there of do not appear until some time after their discharge or resignation. If the disability resulting from the injury or disease contracted in the service does not occur before one year after dis charge or resignation you may be un able to obtain compensation, ' for the law provides that when such disabili ty or death occurs as shown by the medical evidence after one year after your discharge, a certificate of injury must have been obtained from the Di rector of the Bureau, within the year from the date of your discharge in or der that the government may pay you, or your dependents." "If you wee injured or contracted disease while in the service, even though the injury or disease was of a minor character, be sure to apply for a certificate of injury before one year after the date of your dicsharge or resignation, in order to protect your self and your dependents. Act now. "Do not fail to get this certificate if you sustained injury or disease in the service which, even though it may not bother you now, may become ag gravated hereafter. Apply to the nearest District Supervisor of the Pub lic Health Service, or write to the Chief Medical Advisor, Bureau of War Risk Insurance, Washington, D. C, giving your full name, serial number, and organization, and rank at the time of discharge or resignation."

Silicate rocks, which are widely dis tributed over the United States, con tain potash in an insoluble combina tion and in a form which is not avail able for 'industrial use, but they are gradually decomposed on exposure to the weather. The potash, thus ren dered soluble, is dissolved by rain or ground water, and it finally reaches the ocean or inclosed drainage basins through streams or is absorbed from percolating water by clays, accord ing to the United States Geological Survey, Department of the Interior. River waters of North America con tain an average of 281 parts per mil lion dissolved salts ( of which an aver age of 1.77 per cent is potassium. They carry annually to the ocean 8,339,800 metric tons of potassium, and the river waters of the world carry 57,892,000 metric tons. Tho an nual precipitation of potassium in in soluble form in the ocean is 50,320,000 metric tons, leaving an annual gain of potassium by tho ocean of 7,662,000 metric tons.

Its funny how these Yanks will hob nob with royalty and nobility and get away with it. Such conduct in some countries would be unspeakable, but tho good old Yank spirit can't be downed. The latest adventurer in the field of nobility is Wallace Strait Shutz, of Milwaukee, formerly captain in the 120th Field Artillery, who recently married the Princess Nadejda Troub etzkoy, of an old Russian noble fam ily, in Washington. The princess has been studying American nursing technique at the Naval Hospital here and was famed as the "most beautiful Red Cross nurse in Europe" during the war. Capt. Shutz met her just a month ago and stuck around until he won her, over the protests of members of the Russian nobility in Washington and France. They will make their home in Milwaukee.
