I. ) mai me wnoie uerman nation has mi Jit 'ii- gone mad is the seasoned opinion of Prof. Joseph Jastrow, the noted psy-i kchologist of the University of Wis consin. Speaking recently, he said "I have come to consider the state of the German mind as a state of madness assuming , military form Germany, the patient, must be over powered to be cured. 'Mania Teu tonic belongs to the long list of contagious mental epidemics. It comes forward in wild excesses and reckless cruelties. The sacrilege and terrorism of Louvain, the hymn of hate, the holiday celebrations of the sinking of the Lusitania, are evi dences. The defense of the German intellectuals of Germany's" course is further proof." Probably the theory of contagious finsanity is the most charitable view that can be taken of the nation that is responsible for the "most mon strous tragedy of the ages," and yet it must be conceded that there is method in their madness. Whatever the fact may be as to the mental status, whether it be "Mania iTeutonica," or something else, one thing is certain, and that is that she haST become a "monster so terrible, ideformed and huge" as to make her a dreadful menace to the well being of the civilized world. There can be no safety, no permanent peace, and nothing like Universal Brotherhood iuntil this war and conquest-mad na tion is overpowered and "cured." Idaho Odd Fellow. DeBUSK.

'Dodson's Liver Tone" Better Than Calomel and Cannot Salivate. Calomel loses you a day! You know what calomel is. It's mercury ; quicksilver. Calomel is dangerous. It crashes into sour bile like dynamite, cramping and sickening you. Calo mel attacks the bones and should never be put into your system. When you feel bilious, sluggish, constipated and all knocked out and believe you need a doss of dangerous calomel, just remember that your druggist sells for a few cents a large bottle of Dodson's Liver Tone, which entirely vegetable and pleasant to take and is a perfect substitute for calomel. It is guaranteed to start 'our liver without stirring you up in side, and cannot salivate. Don't take calomel! It makes you sick the next day; it loses you a day's ork. Dodson's Liver Tone straight ens you right up and you feel great. live it to the children because it is perfectly harmless and doesn't gripe. OUR THREE DARLINGS.
