A French General Who Loved His Sol diers and Proved It. Many men have been good soldiers and brave commanders who, neverthe less. had no relish for fighting.

His fiery temper and his ideal of 11 soldier are well exemplified in the following: Sisseton Bargain Store In July, 1S05, when Oudinot was thir ty-eight years old, the emperor review ed tin? grenadiers at their camp at Boulogne.

Photo by American Press Association The return of Field Marshal Barot von Der Goltz to Constantinople, ac cording to the Berlin Lokal Auzleger, is due to a promise made to the sul tan by Von Der Goltz when he left the Turkish service eighteen years ago to return if Turkey ever needed his services. The field marshal renewed this promise to Sultan Abdul Hamid xvhec he visited Constantinople in 1910. The sultan, it appears, recalled his promise and asked the emperor to loan Von Der Goltz and his staff to Turkey during the war. WEST AWAITS RESULT OF EASTERN BATTLE London, Dec. 2.—Russian and Ger man reports indicate that the Rus sian lines in Poland are intact and that the forces are locked in a ter rific battle extending over what virtual ly amounts to a front of 100 miles. There are three points of contact from the German position: South of Piock, through Lowicz and Lodz, and southeast of Cracow. The armies have gradually merged into one great force during the past week, however, and the developments of the past two days clearly indicate that early Rus sian reports were overly optimistic. General von Hindenberg's army, which was composed largely of con scripts of next year's line, has been reinforced. With the kaiser at the eastern front it is believed a supreme effort is about to be made to hurl the Russian offensive back upon Warsat/. When the big battle is finally fought and the results and details are learn ed it is believed it will prove to be the most sanguinary conflict of the war. Its influence upon the entire situa tion will also be of the greatest im portance. Some military experts be lieve that the Germans are now marking time in the west awaiting the outcome of General Hindenberg's conflict with the Russians.

Many Sisseton people take their lives in their hands by neglecting the kidneys when they know these organs need help. Weak kidneys are responsible for a vast amount of suffering and ill health, but there is no need to suffer nor to remain in danger. Use Doau's Kidney Pills—a remedy that has helped thousands of kidney suffer ers. The following statement leaves no ground for doubt. Joseph K. Irwin, Webster, S. D., says: "Several year ago I injured my back by lifting heavy lumber. My back got lame and sore. If I tried to straighten quickly after stooping, sharp pains caught me in my sides. My kidneys were very irregular in action. I heard of Doan's Kidney Pills aud decided to try them. On box re lived me so much that I got a second. This cured me." Price 50c, at all dealers. Don't simply ask for a kidney remedy— get Doan's Kidney Pills—the same that Mr. Irwin hid. Koster Milburn Co., Props., Buffalo, N. Y. 1 THE HIGH COST OF LIVING. As the prices demanded for the necessaries of life gradually rise higher, with an occasional breath ing spell otilv to continue their upward course. A good many peo p'e realize that, a goodly share of life-, necessities are beyond their react!. High prices are one of the prin cipal topics of discussion. People have blamed different administra tions, high tariff and low tariff blamed themselves for not produc ing more alumdeutlv. in a vain ef fort to reduce the high cost of liv ing. hi fact they have been deal iv.g with effect not with cause. While there are many factors enter ing into the cause of high cost of living, only three will here be men tioned. Namely: improved mach inery, reinvestment of capital and wiste by competition. Kvery improved machine pet forms two functions, namely, re duces the amount of manual labor and at the same time increases the amount of production. Not only does improved machinery reduce the number of laborers but it also decreases the ability of an ever in creasing army of unemployed, to buy these machine products. In other words, the ability to buy does not keep in ratio with increas ed productions. Reinvestment of capital: The railroads for instance, making a a net profit, over and above all ex penses, the small sum of only eight hundred million dollars. This net profit in turn becomes capital and must be reinvested in such a manner so as to yield quick returns of r.ot less than 6 percent interest. This in a year will amount to forty eight million dollars, net in terest, which will in return become capital for reinvestment and so on. This reinvestment must be made in something staple, something there is always a demand for. Therefore it is found that the great est amount of all reinvestments of capital are reinvested in the pro ductioti and distribution of the necessaries of life. This 6 per cent on all reinvestments must be paid, and can only be realized by the in vestors of such capital by adding enough surplus value to the com modities embodied in the neces saries of life at the time of produc tion, to cover this amount of in terest, naturally then, as surplus value is added to a commodity, the exchange value increases, and when the consumer buys the nec essaries of life he pays all added surplus value. Waste in production: The iron law of competition out of necessity compels rival industries in produc tion, to install labor saving devic es and at the same time increase their amount of production. It necessarily follows that millions of dollars are wasted in machinery every year, and this adds another surplus value to coinmoditise to cover investments in old machinery To sum up improved machines deminish the ability to buv the necessities of life. The reinvest ment of capital compels added sur plus value to commodities to pay interest on said investment. The iron law of competition, causing the displacement of one machine with a new one, the only object to reduce the number of laborers, adds more surplus to commo dities. Millions lacking the ability to buy necessarily throws a heavier burden upon those who are able to buy It follows that the cost of living must go higher. Anarchy in production and distribution of life's necessities is responsible for the high cost of living. Fred McDonald.
