"I am greatly Interested," said General Wood, "in te establishment of these camps, as I believe they will have a tremendous Influence In revivifying among the youth of this country, especially the college youth, a proper appreciation of each man's responsi bility to the country In time of war and of his obligation to so prepare him Belf as to be able to serve efficiently if called upon.

TARIFF EXUDED FROM SERENO PAYNE Representative Ptftne. He waited until the house had adjourned and then went down on the floor of the house. Sereno was in his chair, gazing thought fully into space. "Mr. Payne " said Gus. There was no reply. "I beg pardon, Mr. Payne " All was quiet. "I came to ask you, Mr. Payne- But he might as well have stayed away. "If it would not be too much trouble, Mf. Payne ' Nothing happened. Then Gus grew bolder. He snapped his fingers in front of Mr. Payne'i face. The explosion was terrific. Sereno has never been seen near him since. Yet all is different now. As the before them, Sereno Payne smiles and Republican member on the ways and means committee and has written the minority report. He doesn't have to hear Jong and dreary statements from manufacturers and importers. The burden la all on Oscar Underwood, and Sereno, for the first time in a long while, is UTng up to his first name. MURRAY COMES FROM THE TALL GRASS Washington will grow accustomed to calling Representative Murray of Oklahoma "Alfalfa Bill," and it will not be long before Washington drops the quotation marks and spells it plainly. Alfalfa Bill Is one of the Bights, of the new congress and is the riddle of Oklahoma politics. He comes from the tall grass and speaks the language of a senator while In the hall of the he Use of representa tives, yet he knows the hiU-billy talk and the cowboy cusa customs, and j'gets away with any, either or both at ff any time or place that he chooses. Most of the effete easterners around Washington think Alfalfa Bill Is a cowboy, but he Is a farmer and proud of it. As a farmer he learned a great many scenic effects and is careful about preserving the proper atmosphere. When he goes out west to his native ranches he looks as If he had slept in his clothes for a month, and no amount of arguing will get him to press his trousers. It first day be appeared on Capitol Hill he had a new suit and pressed trousers and made a grand flght for liberty and American principles in a speech about something or other abot two minutes after he had been sworn in. He started to tell Speaker Clark all about the rules of the house and attracted attention generally, but the Oklahoma correspondents overlooked the fact that Alfalfa Bill had made speeches and things. The dispatches dwelt on the fact that Bill had pressed his trousers. SAYS :'H0G'S EYE" IS ALL RIGHT j . I !) i -J if 4r a. candidate for a colleclorshlp at Owef.sboro.

That's a long time ago and a whole lot of things have happened, but in thone days Sereno Payffe of New York was the Oscar Underwood of the dr.y. Sereno was supposed to carry more secrets con cerning manufacturers and rates and Imports and to have a broader view of this perplexing and brain-benumbing tariff thing than any man alive. Now in those old days, when Se reno sat at the head of the tariff table, you couldn't get near him. H would almost bite you. He was so full of tariff that It exuded from him, but at that no one could ap proach him with a quiz without run ning the risk of an imperial "stand pat" Republican frown. Newspaper men trembled when they had to ask him a question. Augustus Hayward, a correspon dent of a big New York paper, want ed to get a word of information from Payne almost bit him. Gus ran and tariff tinkers chew over the problems smiles and smiles. He Is the ranking would kill him politically, he says. The Urey Woodson, of Owensboro, Ky former secretary of tho Democratic national committee, is still of th opinion that the "hog's eye is done sot." In 1904 Mr. Woodson, then sec retary of the national committee, was so sanguine of the eiectiou of Judge Parker that he would not liBten to any of hla friends who suggested the possibility of Democratic defeat. "The hog's eye is done sot," declared Mr. Woodson, using the mountaiueer expression of old Kentucky. After the overwhelming defeat of Judge Pnfker Mr. Woodson was firm in bis contention that the hog's eye was "sot," but that it was only looking into the future. Now, when politi cians meet Mr. Woodson they do not Joke him. "The hog's eye Is surely done sot," said Mr. Woodson the other day. The former secretary of the national committee was In good spirits over the confirmation of his N 55 i" S 0il ... ffji Illy The NniU.mil Woman's Christian Ti nipimncM Union ) TO DESTROY LIQUOR TRAFFIC Petition Addrtistd to Governments of World Asks Prohibition of Curtes of All Nations. (From an adilrtaa by Mra. Francea P. I'nskn, ('(irrc i"illiig (Secretary Na tional W. C. T. U.) The story of the Polyglot petition Is In part the story of the World's Wo man's Christian Temperance Union, a multitude of Christian women of all races and colors banded together to destroy the legalized liquor traffic. This petition, addressed to the gov ernments of the world, was started on its long Journey In 1685. The con cluding paragraph reads: We, (your petitioners) come to 70U with the united volcs of rep resentative women of every land, beseeching you to raise the stand ard of the law to that of Chris tian morals, to strip away the safeguards and sanctions of the state from the liquor traffic and the opium trade, and to protect our homes by the total prohibition of these curses of civilization throughout all the territory ov'er which your government extends. "To enumerate the languages In whose ctaxacters the beliefs of women have been molded to action by this far reaching document would be to make a list of almost every tongue that has survived the confusion of Babel. There are columns of Chinese women's signatures that look like houses that Jack built. Thereis a list of Burmese signatures that looks like bunches of "tangled worms." The thousands upon thousands from the spacy isle of Ceylon are enough to make a shorthand writer shudder. The incomprehensible but liquid vOw els of the Hawaiian Kanaka Jostle the proud names of English ladles of high degree; the name of the haughty se- nora of Madrid makes the same plea as "her mark" of the converted wo man of the Congo. There are Span ish names from Mexico and the South' American republics, French from Mar tlnque, Dutch ' from Natal, and Eng llsh from New Zealand, besides the great home petition from the greater nations. The total, counting men's and women's signatures and attesta tions, aggregate seven and one-half millions. The petition la mounted on cloth and if the names were written one under the other It would be more than five miles ling." By legislative enactment secured through the Woman's Christian Tern perance Union scientific temperance Instruction is compulsory in all pub lic schools of the United States, and Is optional or compulsory In the schools of Great Britain, Canada, Prance, Holland, Denmark, Belgium Switzerland, Austria, Hungary, Ger many, Sweden, Finland, Australia, New Zealand South Africa, Mexico and Japan. It Is not strange that the sanity of temperance should be seen when two generations of our people have been trained from the kindergarten to uni versity in the belief that alcohol is a poison. It te not strange that women, build lnjc for all time, have put great em phasis upon the spread of the sclenti flc temperance Instruction, believing that there can be no permanent pro hibition of the sale of alcoholic liquor which does not rest upon the founda tion of knowledge of the true nature and effect of alcohol. Fifty countries are federated with the World's Woman's Christian Tenr perance Union and will send delegates to Its ninth triennial convention to be held In Brooklyn, N. Y., in October The Countess of Carlisle is president Crime Against Nature. In obedience to Nature's laws economy and evolution, we owe to the succeeding generation a healthier childhood and a more wholesome nur sery In which to rear it than we In hesited from the generation which preceded us. In debauching manhood of Its citizenship by authorizing the sale of alcoholic drink, the state is robbing the next generation of Its natural birthright, and is itself com mltting a crime against Nature. Hon L. Judson Williams, Judge of the Su preme Court of Appeals, West Vir ginla. Increase In Height. " About one-half of the cities and practically all of rural Norway are under prohibition. To this fact, it Is thought, is due the Increase in height of recruits to the army between the years 1880 and 1907, while It is true that in French districts where the ravages of alcoholism are most mark ed, the height of recruits to the arm? has diminished. Who Pays Taxes? "My ideas on the tax question have changed," says a prominent farmer. "I used to think saloons paid taxes. They simply collect them, and give worse than nothing in return. The license money they pay and that soma near-sighted folks think is such a big thing, comes out of their customers, every dollar of it. And then we sober, ha d-working farmers have to pay more taxes to keep up expanses of courts, prisons, asylums, poor houses and jails than all the other tvxpayerr of the country put together." Strong Argument. "What do you consider thr- strong est argument in favor of prohibition?" was asked of a zealous acti-saloon worker. "My boys," was tfce quick reply. "What Is your strongest ground for hope for the triumph of this move ment?" "My boys," was the equally ready response. Tell-Tale Breath. He (gushingly) Your eye tell m much.

Some have attributed It to "good advertis ing;" others to "efficient management," others, to Its "delicious flavor'' and still pthers to the fact that It was the first In the field of "trade marked" soft drinks. In this connection, the opinion of a manufacturing chemist who bus analys ed Coca Cola and studied Its history for many years, will prove Interesting. He attributes the popularity of the drink In large part to Its quality of refresh ing both mind and body without pro- uclng any subsequent depression. He points out the fact that the chemical composition of Coca-Cola is practically Identical with that of coffee and tea with sugar added) the only material difference being the absence of tannic acid from Coca-Cola. He points to the laboratory experiments of Dr. Holllng- worth of Columbia university and or Dr. 11. C. Wood, Jr. of Philadelphia Which prove conclusively that the caf feine-containing beverages (coffee, tea, Coca-Cola, etc.) relieve mental and mus cular fatigue by rendering the nerves and muscles more responsive to the will, thus diminishing the resistance produced by fatigue. These experl meuts also demonstrate the fact that the caffeine group of beverages differ from the stimulants In that tho use of the latter Is followed by a period of de pression which calls for more stimula tion, thus resulting in tbe formation of "habll "Adv. Remembered Thrifty Teachings. A woman who was left to tbe task of bringing up two small children be gan early te train them to consider necessities above all else.

The daughter pre served her sensible, thrifty ways to he lust and she ie drilling them lnti :hildren of her own by teaching the value of a bank book in addition to what she learned in her own child hood. FACE FULL OF PIMPLES Ruffln, N. C. "My face became full of pimples and blackheads, and would Itch, burn and smart. Tbe skin was rough and red. I was really ashamed of my face. My arms and back were affected almost as badly. The pimples would fester and there would come a dry scab on top. The trouble caused my face to be disfig ured badly and the Itching would both er me so I could not sleep well nights, especially during warm weather. "The trouble lasted me three long years without anything doing me any good until a friend told me about Cuti cura Soap and Ointment and then I decided to try them. After the first application I could see some improve ment. After using Cuticura Soap and Ointment two weeks I did not look like the same person; most of the pimples had disappeared. At the end of four weeks I was completely cured." (Signed) Miss Mamie Mitch ell, Jan. 8, 1913. Cuticura Soap and Ointment sold throughout the world. Sample of each free.with 32-p. Skin Book. Address post card "Cuticura, Dept. L, Boston." Adv. Strawberries In Literature. Dr. William Butler, who died in 1621, Is credited with the origin of the re mark about the strawberry. "The Lord might have made a better berry than the strawberry, but he never did." Thomas Fuller, the English divine and historian, in his "History of the Worthies of England," that has de lighted readers of more than two cen turies, styled Dr. Butler the Aesculap ius of his age. Izaak Walton in "The Complete Angler," said: "We may say of angling as Dr. Boteler said of strawberries, "Doubtless God could have made a better berry, but doubt less God never did;' and so if I might be Judge, God never did make a more calm, quiet, innocent recreation than angling." REAL MERIT HAS MADE BOND'S LIVER PILLS a household word through the South. We have spared neither time nor money in perfecting BOND'S PILLS for the cure of Headaches, Bilious ness, Constipation, Malaria, and sim ilar ills. MERIT was our chief object. Not how "cheap" but how good we could make them. The extraordinary success of BOND'S PILLS is due solely to their MERIT, not to loud and misleading claims of CURING EVERYTHING. Adv. Not Practical. In Oregon a law Intended to pre vent the marriage of the unfit has en countered a practical difficulty. It prescribed an examination of the blood as a precaution against tuber culosis and other diseases, but the fee fixed in tho law was less than physicians would accept, and they say that for the work required $15 or $20 would not be too much. If fitness for marriage cannot be determined cheap er than that, the Caucasian must be, ae Bret Harte pi it, "played out." It is unwiso to make marriage laws bur densome. Springfield Republican.

Ira Beasore drove Into town Just before the big rain the other day, and he saw Orlo Tuttle setting tubs and barrels under all the spouts around his house. So Ira pulls up and hol lers at Orlo: "Hey, Orlo!

An Indianapolis traveling man wit nessed a novel feast by students of De Pauw university at Greencastle the other day. He said he was at a station in that city, and standing near was a poultry car loaded with live poultry. The hens were cackling and "carrying on" at a great rate. A crowd of stu dents stood around the car, and when ever a hen produced a nice, new, fresh egg a student reached his arm through the side of the car, seized the egg and made for a nearby store, where he fried it over a gas jet. "There were at least twenty stu dents around the car," said the travel ing man, "and the hens kept them busy all the time I was there. I don't know how many eggs tho students got, but it was a busy bunch of hens. Just before my train pulled out I heard one student say to another: 'Gee, I never ate so many eggs in my life!' There was no question about the freshness of the eggs." Domestic Breadmaking. With a fear of ecarcity of bread through shortage of flour, one recalls Cobbett's view of the woman in the house who, provided with materials, still lacked a loaf. "As to the art of making bread," he wrote, "It would be shocking Indeed If that had to be taught by the means of books. Every woman, high or low, ought to know how to make bread; If she do not she Is a mere burden upon the community. Yet It Is but too true that many wom en know nothing of the making of bread . . . Even servant women in abundance appear to think that loaves made by the baker are things of their pure creation things, too, in which no one else can participate. Now, is not thie an enormous evil." Cobbett's words, however, failed to touch the kitchen, for the "enormous evil" stlli exists! What She Wanted. One day in the spring the orphans from the aBylum were taken In motor cars out to the park. A society wom an, accompanied by her stylish little daughter, was driving through the park in a big limousine car. They stopped and watehed the procession of little orphans, and the mother ex plained that the little boys and girls had no homes and no fathers or moth ers. After she had finished she discov ered that her little daughter was al most crying, and her eyes were filled with tears. "Why, what's the matter, deareBt?" she asked. "Oh. mother, was the sobbing re ply, "I want to be an orphan. Can I?" Harper's Monthly.

His mother explained that the ache was due to the fact that his stomach was empty, and that he would feel better it he had something in it. Two evenings later a young man called to see little Johnny's sweet sister. Sitting in the parlor, waiting for the family to retire, the young man remarked that he had a head ache.

Of a favorite child comrade Mr. Clemens related that they once con versed together gravely considering the little girl's plans for rearing 'her future children, of whom there were to be two a boy and a girl. The girl, naturally enough, was to be named after her mother. Asked what would be the boy'a name, the child answered, "a reproachful look In her brown eyes": "Why, Mr. Clemens, how can I know what I shall call him until I know his father's name?"
