I IS INVESTIGATION OF CAMPAIGN FUNDS PROVES TOO MUCH FOR SEATTLE COUNCILMEN. , fUNITKD PRESS LEASED WIM, Seattle, Wash., March 13. As a result of the investigation of campaign funds in the recent election made by the Se attle Star, John G. Tierce, today has an nounced his intention of rosigning as a member of the city council. The Star's probe committee, consist ing of Mayor Cotterill, Port Commis sioner Robert Bridges and Judge W. H.

Follow ing a supplemental investigation by the Bolo club, a Spanish-American war or ganization, of which Pierce is fi mem ber, and beforo the council itself could take action in tho matter, Pierce an nounced his intention of resigning by next Monday, "because of tho fart that his efficiency as a legislative offi cial had boen impaired by unfavorable publicity," and "by reason of personnl business." I INJURI 10 THE KIDNEYS Taks a Tablespoonful of Salts If Back Hurts or Bladder Bothers Meat Forms Uric Acid. We are a nation of meat enters and our blood is filled with uric acid, says a wollknown authority, who warns us to be constantly on guard against kid ney trouble. The kidneys do their utmost to free tho blood of this irritating itcid, but become weak from the overwork; they get sluggish; the oliminntivo tissues clog and thus the wnste is rotained In the Hood to poison the ontire system. When your kidneys sche and feel like lumps of lead, and you have sting ing pains in the back or the urine is cloudy, full of sediment, or the bladder Is irritable, obliging you to seek relief during the night; when you have severe headaches, nervous and dizzy spells, sleeplessness, acid stomach or rheuma tism In bad weather, get from your pharmacist about four ounces of Jad Hulls; talis a tablospoonful in a glass of water before breakfast each morning and in a few days your kidneys will act fine. This famous salts is made from the acid of grapes and lomon juice, combined with lithis, and has been used for generations to flush and stimulate clogged kidneys, to neutralize the (voids in urine so it is no longer a source of irritation, thus ending urin ary and bladder disorders. Jad Salts is inexpensive and cannot Injure; makes a delightful effervescent lithUi-wnter drink, and nobody can make a mistake by taking a little oc casionally to keep the kidneys clean and active. "THE SPASM AGE" IS THE CALLS IT Sacramento Editor Flays Men and Wo men Who Run Amuck Throughout Land With Frenzied Fads. IN NAME OF REFORM, PROGRESS IS ASKED TO STEP BACKWARD Short-Halred Women and Long-Hairod Men Mak Air Resound With Their . Clamorous Appeals. O. K. McCLATCHY, SACRAMENTO. This good old earth has passed through the Stone age, the. Iron age, the Bronze age, the alleged Golden ago, and now is "in the midkt of the Spasm age. The world is in the throes of a gen eral hysteria, of a dementia universal. Men and women are Tunning amuck with frenzied fads. In the name of humanity, "reforms" are demanded that are inhuman, in the name of re form, progress is asked to step back ward. In the name of progress, women strive to strip from womanhood her brightest jewels. And in the name of womanhood, denatured males and ad vanced females seek to recreate woman after a new pattern of sexual athletic ism but sexless idealism. Verily, the old whirligig of Time is spinning around so rapidly and so diz zily to the accompanying eorybantls antics of the howling dervishes of the New Idea, that sanity herself wears a troubled air when surrounded by in sanity. By legislation, in the twinkling of aa eye, in the taking of a breath as tho years have gone and the years that are to be counted we are told we will ail be washed clean not only from the sins that stain, but even from the peccadil loes that annoy. Mankind and womankind are to b purified on earth for the everlasting life in Heaven. No longer will there be any need of purgatorial hereafter ,Roeloanscd by statute and madfl white again through the blessed graco of the brothers and sisters of the new dispensation, there will be no grosser parts to be Btrained in tho finry sievj of eternity's middle state. White as tho breath of Jack Frost, and chanto as the iciclo that curdled by the frost from purest snow and hangs on Dian's temple. Woman will wandnr through this world not marrying and being given in marriage but a joyous and radiant creature, tho star-eyed god dess of her own will, hor love as froa as the air, and scorning thoso shameful fettors with which inhuman custom so long bad bound her. As for man weak, pitiful man he will arise, by the help of freed woman, to trffid the mountain paths of love and liberty whereon today an inhuman and a grossly slavish world martvrs a Maury Diggs. But ull along tho road of the now St. Vitus dance reformatory movements halting at this sub-Btation or at thai, and wondering when they will go further arc vast hordes of men and women obsessed if not possessed crea tures who, like the Pied Pipor of Ifntu. lin, pipe away on their fads and expect the whole world to follow and dance ti their music. Tho very air is clamorous with their hysterical appeals. They seek, everywhere for legislation to prevent everybody clso from doing that which they do not care themselves to do. Nothing appalls them. Nothing (Quints them. Nothing confuses or cou founds them, Statistics and science they have tnken into Ihoir camp and, liko gypsies with stolen children, have disfigured them to make them pans for their own. With flaming banners, blaring trump ets, and the shrieks of thousands of frenzied voices, they hnvo rushed ii not only where Christ forlioro to trend they even hnvo misinterpreted the Hook and misread the Iifo to use as a weapon a Scriptural boomerang. Soino of them go even to far as to N-E-W-S Did you ever stop to consider that the letter In the word News tnml for the initials of tho four puints of the compass? What the news does. is literally to put you In touch with tho for.r quarters of the whole worl I every day in tho year and almost every hour of the day, The advertising has come to be an essential part of the news. It covers the entire compass of the business world. It tells of the currents of trad,. It tells whore things are made, whnl they are for, and what they cost. It dcftls with fuels facts thit concern tho well being of tho people. Take it from the standpoint of actual helpfulness snd there t, on the whole, little news In the newspaper that Is as important as the advertising. ignore and scorn the lamp of experience and in their arrogance will demand that those who have been in the light must follow them into the darkness. Young girls just fresh (and still fresh) from know-all institutions of theoretical infallibility become presi dents of Mothers' clubs; dogmatically tell mothers and grandmothers who have borne, and nursed and reared fine specimens of manhood and womanhood, that their method was almost criminal; and insist that young mothers shall rear their infants on the truly scientific, principles mapped out by long-haired men incapable of becoming fathers, and enthusiastically endorsed by short haired women who never took the first step toward motherhood. No wonder a good old-fashioned grandmother told one of those lights of the new science of motherhood that she had better go out and get record beforo she presumed to instruct those who had had experience as well as theory. Althougt Dpvid danced before ark, and the sight evidently was' pleasant in the eyes of the Almighty, there be those who consider all dancing -an abomination before the Lord, and who would have all mankind and all woman kind debarred therefrom. And even some municipal legislators can be found who will darken reason with prohibitory ordinances ordinances which die in dishonor or live to be dis regarded and laugho?. at. Love was born with this world. Love has been accepted as the herald and the companion of marriage. When heretofore two young souls gave themselves unto each other until death should them part, they were sup posed to be united in that alone which makes life worth the living in that alone which connects birth and death with its bridge of roses which, stretch ing from time to eternity, haloes the one and sanctifies the other love love, twinborn upon infant lips and in the consesrated soul of the glorified mother love, aureoled by humanity and ac coladed by divinity itself love, that stands tiptoe upon the mountain top of Heaven's highest hope love, that trust and faith toll us will yet abide some whore forever and forever when the stars are quenched, aud this brave world has gone dowa in darkness and in gloom. But times have changed. Cupid is to be banished. Science and medicine, and. the higher culture are to preside over the marriage ceremony. Lovo'i rainbow archery,, with goldon arrows tipped with myrrh and frankincense, is to bo discarded, and spectacled faddisni will bo the dominant genius while tho emblems of the marriage license will be a stethoscope an a tape measure. Marriage no longer 1b to bo a cere mony of the heart, but-rathcr one con ditioned upon tho regularity of tho bowels. Heigh, hoi No wonder the naked littlo boy shivers, and weoi, and will not bo comforted. An in this Spasm nge the czars of a faddisni that demands eugenic mar riages or none, and university-approved and scientifically-nursed babies, are to tho front declaring that wet damnation lurks in every drop of wine; that an atom of beer contains tho concentrated essenco of U)Jw poinsonous devils; that the wine-grape vines shull be torn up,, or used only to nmko grape juice for tho Hryans of this enrth. From the olden and the golden days, told in Judenn story and chanted in Judenn song, the sunshine of life, uu I how, and joy, and love, and radiant happiness has come from out the grupj that is pressed. Its heart warming juico has been blessed by tho Almighty thnt gave, and by tho Savior who used. Hut today wo are told that, because some abuse, none shall use; that, be cause mini hers liko it not, none shall have; that the wine that tho Almighty sanctified in tho Holy of Holies and that Christ made and drank at tho wed ding fitils at Ciuih shnll be banished forever from California, ' tho Guidon State, no more fnmnus by reason of her gold than because of tho fruit of her! vines, And watching and waiting for tho re sult of this demanded prohibition me the vegeturiims the vegoterinns who have proved to their own satisfaction Hint nil incut in pui-mi, iiihl thnt it is a crime fur governments to permit man kind to bo fill thereon. Tlioir pamphlets show that about uil tho ills that flesh is heir to coin f ruin eating meiit; their doctors stake their reputations upon that as n fact, And they will be ready, solely In tlu interest of tho rescue of mankind from horriblo deaths by wholesale poisoning to demand legislation that will raise all men to the glorious level of the pro historic monkey or tho scripturul NoliiicliBdiierzar. , , Ami If thai legislation should come to ms these lines of thanksgiving in tho "Grace Iteforo Meat" by "Bobbie" Burns, no longer would bo appropriate Homo hao meat, and canna cat And soino would cat that wan il; But wo hao meat, and can eat, Sao let tho Ird be thunkit. In the days that niny bo hero of om nibus constructive hygiene statutes, mankind no more would think of thank ing And for meat to eat than of prnis Ing Him for providing " Iiomjh on Hats'1 s an appetizer. Then, just behind tho vegetarians, also watching and waiting, are the ant i coffen and tho anti-tea cranks mes and women armed with 1'ostum pamph lets, and with statistics showing the number of tea-drunkards in the insane asylums of Ireland. And behind them yet is an army of other faddists, bearing lives of 17. 8. Grant, narrating his agonizing end as a result of excessive smoking; carrying statistics and medical computations of the deaths from tobacco heart. And back of them again, awaiting their chance, ore armies of other cranks determined on taking away from man kind everything else that mankind likes and enjoys. Old King Cole is to be deprived, not only of his pipe, and his bowl, and his fiddlers three, but of every other oleus- ure that hag' helped to make his life comfortable or even endurable. If all these faddists and theorists and crusaders are to have their way, a term in the penitentiary will be no greater infliction than ordinary life upon this planet, and hell hereafter will nave so terrors for those used to a statutory hell upon earth.
