When your kidneys feel like lumps of lead; your back hurts or the urine is cloudy, full of sediment or you are obliged to seek relief two or three times during the night; if you suffer with sick headache or dizzy, nervous spells, acid stomach, or you have rheumatism when the weather is bad, get from your pharmacist about four ounces of .Tad Salts; take a tablespoonful in a glass of water before breakfast for a few days and your kidneys will then act fine. This famous salts is made from the acid of grapes and lemon juice, combined with lithia, and has been used for generations to flush and stimulate clogged kidneys; to neutralize the acids in the urine so it no longer is a source of irritation, thus ending bladder dis orders. .. .Tad Salts is inexpensive; cannot in inre. makes a "delightful effervescent lithia-water beverage, and belongs in every home, because nobody can make a mistake by having a good kidney flushing any time.

With tho suggestion that the United States call conference of neutral nations to en force the right of neutrals, Senator La- Follettc, leader of the twelve "wilful n" who blocked the armed neutral ity bill, Vigorously defends his position in this week's iswie of his magazine. declaring the bill means war. LaFollette denies he filibustered against the bill, lie says he did all in his" power to defeat the measure "in sofar as permitted' by the tyrannical action of a majority,' which" resorted to a perversion of the rules to prevent speaking against the bill." "By virtually placing American guns and gunners under British admiralty' orders, tho bill means war," he as serted. The. action f the president In ''at tempting to force the bill through in the last hours of congress," is bitterly criticised by LaFollette. Authority that leaves it in the discretion of the i president to make war is conferred in the bill he claims. "The president made it clear that he wants to be left alone to exercise ex traordinary and autocratic no went af fecting the destines of the country and the world until December the time for assembling the new congress," La Follette. declared. "It was the evil system of one man power and secret diplomacy that plunged the helpless people of Kurope into war.". By a call to neutrals at this time for a conference and a mere suggestion that food and other supplies would be withheld .from both sides impartially, the belligerents would be forced to observe the principle of freedom of the seas, he asserts.' . .

It's the same wav with Montgomery ami Stone, with Wil- lianm and Walker, an J a dozen other "teams" dear to the hearts of comedy lover. Salem him its team of comedians, in K.

COOKE PATTON in " Got - Rich - Quick - Wallingford ' ' which the Elks are to stage at the Grand Tuesday and Wednesday even ings of next week with a cast of twenty-one well-known SahVni actors. This is tho same l'atton and Howard who scored the big comedy hit of "The Fortune? Hunter,", when the Hocial Service Center staged that plav last year. In the Winchell (Smith comedy these heavenly "twins played the com panion roles of "Hi" and Wafly." In "Get-Rich-Quick-Watlingfo'rd" they are cast for even hetter parts, and ' WILSON HOWARD .lames Aloit, tne director or the an- tlered thespians predicts that in the new play they will totally eclipse their already famous con.ic glory." : ' ' No one in Salem needs to be told anything about the intmitable Cooke l'atton 's historionic ability. He has been performing behind the local foot lights ever einec he was old enough to talk. He has been one of the stars in every Elks show since the Salcin lodge was founded, and he is the manager of the one we are at present raving about In "(let -Rich - Quick - Wallingford" Cooke plays tho role of "Doc dun ther," the buss driver. "Doc" has saved up about forty thousand dollars during his unromantic career, and he is one of the first of the "boobs" to fall a victim to the wiles of Walling ford (('has. V. Galloway). His adven tures with J. Kufus affords one of the most laughable episodes of the play, and, as everyone knows nobody is bet ter equipped than Cooke l'atton to "put over" laughable episodes. Wilson Howard, as "U. W. Battles," the richest man in town, is scheduled to create one of the biggest comedy sensntioiis ever sprung upon a local audience. As a character comedian Howard has no suneiior on the ama teur stage, and "you might go to the theatre for years and years without seeing his equal on the professional stRfre. "CI. W.

There is not enough room to aceom-j modate all who would get in the hall; therefore come early if you want toi be sure of a seat. It is eamliillv admitted throughout: the state that the Salem company of the national guard, Company M. will be first this time to get its full quoto of men and officers. As it was the first company in the whole country to be reaily to move v hen -the Mexican sit uation threatened, so, today, it is to be the first to go where it is needed. With the soldier boys go well ahead of the other companies of the Third! Oregon infantry in the matter of prep aration it is fitting that Salem civil ians should lead the state in the big meeting tonight. Portland is planning a huge demonstration Friday night, but, with due deference to the Rose City, Salem is to have a program that will eclipse anything the larger city may offer. , In Justice Wallace MeCammant of the Oregon supreme court, who is to be one of the principal speakers here to night, Salem has a drawing card that Portland, Seattle, San Francisco or any other city on the coast would be glad to welcome. He is in Salem, though, and Salem people win therefore have an opportunity to listen to one of the most sifted sneakers in the west. The judge has not announced the subject of his address tonight. It is to be on a patriotic tlieme, However, aim Justice MeCammant feels the serious ness of the country's situation very Jeeply. He will be at his best tonight. Governor Withycpmbe, as chief ex ecutive ot Oregon, will preside and inalu a brief address. He . stirred a larg'j audience last Sunday at the Y. M. C. A. by pdinting out some places in which the defenses of the United States were lamentably weak. The gov ernor will make an appeal for unity in the present crisis and show just how the average person can best help the ration, just now. Kx-Mayor George F." Rodgers is scheduled for a brief address and he is one of tho most pleasing speakers in Hie city today. Last but by no means least the speak ing program includes a short message by Colonel 0. K. Dentler of the United States army who came down from Van couver barracks for the occasion. Col onel Dentler has been helping various national guard units to reorganize tor some months past, having been detail ed by the war department for that pur pose.' There am few officers in this ace! loll of the country .who are the peers of Colonel Dentler when it comes !o tliinas military. For the musical side of the program there is something fine in store. 1 lie falem Military hand, directed by H. N. Stoudenme'yer, will render a pro gram of patriotic selections before and diirincr the meeting. . Miss Minnetta Mailers. direct-T of the high school glee club, has prepared a repertoire of patriotic 'numbers es pecially for the occasion and this splen did organization of picked voices which has made a pronounced success wherever it has appeared,, will sing at frequent intervals.

Offer Them for Training Grounds May Cause Athletic Contests By II. C. Hamilton. (United Press Nta'ff correspondent ) New York, Mar. 28. National league baseball par!.s may bo thrown open to the government for tho training of sol diers. Governor John X. iener, presi dent of tho league ,todny declared he had no doubt that if the need arises the National magnates will bo ready to do anything in. their power to help tho country wage war to a successful end. "I don't believe the magnates are contemplating just now tho possibility Of their grounds being needed, but if that need should arise and the govern ment should cull, our magnates, I am certain, would gladly give their grounds over for purposes of training. "It is a mutter for individual club owners to decide. They own tlieir' grounds. I cannot speak for them, but knowing them and their feelings well, I. feel sure that I speak what they them selves would say. "It is hard for me to believe that tho bloody slrugglo now going on in Kurope will be partly transported to this side of the Atlantic, but wo havo uo way of telling whut may happen. Wo undoubtedly need a huge army and if it is necessary I believe baseball in general will throw itself in to help." National lergue parks are ideally lo cated for such uses and are admirably fitted in most cases. At the l'olo grounds an entire brigade could be sent through maneuvers without being cramped. The same is true of Braves field at Boston, the largest field in the world. Kbbets field, Brooklyn, is smaller, but already has held a brigade. Armories are located very near Kbbets field, Graves field and the l'olo grounds. May Cancel Dates. i t San Francisco, Mar. 2N.

Just a few nj plications will prove a revelation if your hair" is fading, streaked or gray. Mixing the Hage Tea and Sulphur reci pe at home, though, is troublesome. An easier way Is to get a 50 cent bottle of Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Compound at any drug store all ready for use. This is the old time recipe improved by the addition of other ingredients. While wispy, gray, faded hair is not sinful, we all desire to retain our youth ful appearance and attractiveness. Vy ditrkening your hnir with Wyeth's Sago and Sulphur Compounfl, r.o one can tell because it does it so naturally, so even ly. You just dampen a sponge or soft brush with it and draw tins through your hair, taking one small strand at a time; by morning all gray hairs have diMnioitn red. tnid. lifter mmther ntmli- cation or two. vour hair becomes beau tifully dark, glossy, soft and luxur iant.
