COFFEE HURTS One in Three. It is difficult to make people believe tbat coffee is a poison to at least one person out of every three, but people are slowly finding it out, although thousands of them suffer terribly be fore they discover the fact. A New York hotel man says: "Each time after drinking coffee I became restless, nervous and excited, so that I was unable to sit five minutes in one place, was also inclined to vomit and suffer from loss of sleep, which got worse and worse. "A lady said that perhaps coffee was the cause of my trouble, and suggested that I try Postum. I laughed at the thought that coffee hurt me, but she insisted so hard that I finally had some Postum made. I have been us ing it in place of coffee ever since, for I noticed that all my former nervous ness and irritation disappeared. I be gan to sleep perfectly, and the Postum tasted as good or better than the old coffee, so what was the use of stick ing to a beverage that was injuring me? "One day on an excursion up the country I remarked to a young lady friend on her greatly improved appear ance. She explained that some time before she had quit using coffee and taken to Postum. She had gained a number of pounds and her former pal pitation of the heart, humming in the ears, trembling of the hands and legs and other disagreeable feelings had disappeared. She recommended me to quit coffee and take Postum and was very much surprised to find that I had already made the change. "She said her brother had also re ceived great benefits from leaving off coffee and taking on Postum." "There's a reason." Brer read the aim letterf sew appear* tfw* time to ttoe.

Glen Echo, Md., April 15.—Arrange ments for the funeral of Mi^s Clara Barton, founder of the Red Cross so ciety, who died here yesterday, were completed this morning. Miss Barton will be burled where she was born, on the slopes of the little cemetery in Oxford, Mass., with father and mother, brothers and sisters. She will be laid to her long rest hard by the spot where her cradle was rocked. Brief services will be held at the Glen Echo home Sunday afternoon. In accordance with Miss Barton's wish, expressed shortly before her death, her long time friend, Mrs. John A. Logan, will be present and will deliver a brief eulogy. Rev. Dr. John Van Schaick and the Rev. Dr. Curry, universalist clergymen, will also officiate. Miss Barton leaned toward universailsm, but held membership In no church. The funeral party will leave here Sunday evening, and further services In Oxford will be conducted Monday at noon by Rev. VVm. E. Barton, of Chi cago, a cousin, and Rev. Percy H. Elper, of Worcester, Mass., both Con gregationalists. Miss Barton was born at Oxford, klass., December 25, 1812, and received an academic education. She was the daughter of Capt. Stephen Barton, who fought under Gen. Anthony Wayne. In her early career, she was a school teacher. She founded a free school at Bordentown, N. J., which, beginning with six pupils, quickly f*rew until it numbered nearly 600. This work she gave up to accept a place in the patent office at Washington, which place she held until the outbreak of the civil war. Starts Relief Work. After giving up her government po sition, Miss Barton advertised in the paper of Worcester, Mass., that she would receive stores and money for wounded soldiers at the front, which she would personally distribute. Her appeal was liberally answered and she began her great relief worn. She con tinued with the soldiers in Virginia during nearly the entire period of the war, being head nurse of the hospitals among the armies on the James. Miss Barton went to Europe In 1869 and was abroad when the Franco Prussian war broke out. She lost no time in going to Strasburg and begin ning the work of nursing the wounded soldiers. She proceeded later to Paris and rendered assistanace in relieving distress at the time of the commune. Pneumonia in 1911. Miss Barton suffered an attack of pneumonia In February, 1911, had a relapse and the disease became chronic. She went last summer, as usual, to her old home in Oxford, Mass., and returned to Glen Echo in feeble health last autumn. Muscular weakness of the heart de veloped, and for weeks the condition of the venerable nurse had been such as to cause grave fear among her friends. Her bright mind was un dlmmed almost to the last and her ready wit and quick repartee made her sickroom a place of cheer to her attendants. With her when the end came were her nephew, Stephen Barton, of Bos ton, and Dr. J. B. Hubbell. Autobiography Unfinished. The great regret of Miss Barton's last months was that her enfeebled condition made it necessary for her to suspend work on the autobiography. She had brought this work down only to the beginning of her public career as a civil war nurse. A woman whose whole training had fostered habits of precision, she'has left behind practical ly the entire correspondence of her public career, as well as other data bearing upon her International hos pital work, and the work which she herself began will be completed by other hands. Sne had outlined to her nephew, Stephen Barton, what she considered the salient points in her public life. The last years of the great Red Cross nurse had been spent In retire ment. She maintained her winter home at Glen Echo, but passed part of each summer at her birthplace in Massa chusetts. Leaves the Society. She retired from the presidency of the Red Cross in 1904 and since "that time has had no affiliation with the organization of which she previously had been the head since its establish ment largely through her efforts of more than 30 years ago. Members of her household were reticent in dis cussing Miss Barton's withdrawal from the work in which she had long been a leader, contenting themselves with the statement that she retired when more ambitious ones came forward. They sent no notification of her pass ing either to President Taft or the executive body of the Red Cross.

ENGINE MEN ANGERED BY STUART'S LETTER Fail to See Reason for Delay in Opening Negotiations for More Pay. New York, April 15.—Members of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engi neers on 50 eastern railroads and Warren S. Stone, grand cnief of the organization, awaited word today from J. C.

The engineers expect a prompt reply. Mr. Stone's letter said: "Your letter was placed before the chairmen's committee and I am di rected to inform you we can't under stand why it is necessary to receive such an indefinite reply. We are firmly of the opinion the seriousness of the situation necessitates more prompt and decisive action on the part of the managers and must insist on a more explicit answer." The foregoing letter was written In reply to one sent the engineers by Mr. Stuart yesterday afternoon, in which he said it would require several days to convene the general managers' conference committee. J. C. Stuart issued a call today for a meeting of the conference committee, to be held here April 17 to discuss the recent strike vote of the enginet rs.

KANSAS CITY BOY, WOUNDED IN LUNG, HERO OF JIMINEZ City, Mo., April 15.—Tracey Richardson, 23 years old, a Kansas City boy, shot through the lungs by federal bullets at the battle of Jim inez, won the day for the rebel forces under General Orozco, when he climbed back Into the saddle of his machine gun and swept the government trenches. Under cover of the firing the revolters' cavalry charged, routing the enemy. This Information was conveyed to friends here today in a letter from a friend of Richardson, who witnessed the battle. Richardson's action won for him the title of "the hero of Jlmi nez." The letter says In part: "Richardson was in the saddle of his gun. The enemy had swept the plain below him and Orozco's forces were retiring. Richardson aimed his gun for 1,000 yards. It swept the trench. Many federals fell before they located his position. "Then came a hail of lead shot about the young American. Calmly he contin ued firing with unerring aim. His gun, firing 499 shots a minute, toppled the trench men's line until the way seemed clear for Orozco's charge. Just when the bugle sounded the galloping ad vance, Richardson was hurled from hlfl seat, blood spurting from his breast and back. He pulled himself to his feet, and saw that Orozco's cavalry, started on the charge, would be swept by the federals. Sprawling back into his seat after stopping the flood of blood from his wounds the best he could, he resumed firing. The cavalry continued the charge under the cover of the gun and routed the federals. While the federals were being pursued the young American was lying uncon scious beside his gun." Richardson, who is recovering from his wounds, is the son of the late A. R. Richardson, formerly a well known contractor of Kansas City. He has served in three campaigns. First with Estrada in Nicaragua, then with Christmas in Honduras and in the present uprising in Mexico.

BRITTON FIGHTING MAO BECAUSE HE'S ABUSED BY COUBIS H. W. A. Page, of New York, Says That He Will Prove Everyone in Congreit Is a Crook. Ik Siew Yoifc, April 13.—Henry. W. A. Page, a wealthy British subject, who is a linen and cotton commission mer chant has been arraigned before United States Commissioner Shields on an in dictment found by the federal grand jury in Washington, which charges him with having criminally libelled Repre sentative Henry D. Clayton, of Ala bama, chairman of the judiciary com mittee of the House. Mr. Page was held in 5.000 ball and ordered to ap pear before the supreme court of the District of Columbia in Washington on April 19. In printed pamphlets Mr. Page has insisted that Congressman Clayton and all his committee colleagues are crooks because they did not investigate charges made by Mr. Page against two district attorneys, a supreme court Justice, several women witnesses, a law Arm and the New Yark state legislature, through whom the com mission merchant sought to upset a decision of Justice Vernon M. Davis, who in 1907 granted Mrs. Jeanie France Page, his wife, a separation, $4,000 an- Jhreealimony iual and the custody of the children. He Began to Fife Charges. From this decision Mr. Page ap pealed. The appellate division and the court of appeals confirmed the original finding. Enraged, Mr. Page placed charges against Justice Davis before District Attorney Jerome and charges of perjury against two asylum nurses, who testified that Mrs. Page was not a user of drugs, as her husband had sworn. He then made charges against W. M. K. Olcott, atttorney for Mrs. page, and when Magistrate Crane re fused to hold the nurses for perjury, preferred charges against him. He called next on a legislative inves tigating committee to Investigate ev erybody heretofore named. When this committee, headed by Robert A. Wag ner and Edwin A. Merrltt, Jr., refused to do anything, Mr. Page, on December 11, 1911, wrote to each and every con- fnvestigateand La Follette rressman senator, asking them to the Investigators. With this letter he sent a pamphlet two feet jong and 14 inches wlder headed "Death pf Liberty." The pamphlet bore a mourning border. The mourning bor der was also on the back cover of the dlrgeful publication and within its lines was printed the national anthem. Above the song was a cross, followed by the words "In Memorlam." The pamphlet was In the form of a resolution to be adopted by congress demanding an investigation of the con duct of the "legislative and judicial Officers of the state of New York," who, he said, were guilty of "contempt for and violation of the constitution of the United States." "A Contemptible Crook." Mr. Page failed to get a "rise" out of ougress through the use of this great juantity of spectacular literature, so on \pril 2 he shipped off another pamphlet ind letter to Mr. Clayton. The touch ng billet-doux to the representative jtarts off thus: Sir: You are a contemptible crook. Your failure to take appro priate action or to give a hearing on the "Death of Liberty" mem orial on file with your committee is transcendental in its infamy. The right to petition—the right of such memorial—is guaranteed by the su preme law of the land. You have no more right to deny this than you have to commit any other fel ony. Your villainous conduct in tramp ling upon the constitution of the country brands you as an arrogant tyrant. You have committed a most henious crime. You have trodden under foot your oath of office, and with it the liberties of the peopla. You have shut your eyes to the tyrannical acts of the state and so denied the rights of man and dis regarded your oath to God. The "Death of Liberty" memorial dis closes eight specific violations of the constitution and you heed thera not. Used Red Ink for "Crooks." The word "crooks" was in red ink. Mr. Page couldn't Induce the printer to print the word, so the space was left blank and the gifted author filled In the word with a rubber stamp. Mr. Clayton laid the matter before the federal grand Jury, with all of the exhibits, and the indictment followed yesterday. Mr. Page heard about it ind sent word to the federal building here that he would cancel a luncheon engagement to accept service of the warrant. A United States deputy mar- i-l.al took him into custody about noon vesterday and he was arraigned before United States Commissioner Shields, who held him in $5,000 bail. Two hours passed before his lawyer, Samuel Bell Thomas, found surety for him. "I shall win this fight' without doubt," S3id Mr. Page yesterday after noon in his capacious offices on Twen tieth street. "I have been waging this campaign against corruption for over five years and there can be no doubt of the result. I am making a fight for the sake of my three children. The court gave them to my wife. They belong to me." 23,000 ENGINEERS AUTHORIZE STRIKE Dublin, Ireland, April 13.—The na of more than 23,000 out of 25.000 votes cast, locomotive engineers on 50 rail roads east of Chicago and north of the Norfolk & Western have authorized their officials to call a strike slrould further negotiations with railroads for increased pay fail. Final announcement of the vote was delayed for some time owing to the non-arrival of six boxes containing the votes of the engineers on as many roads in the east. The boxes had been sent by express Wednesday night and did not arrive until Just before noon today. For a time some fear was felt for the safety of these boxes and a number of tracers had been sent out after them. SELF STYLED MESSIAH KILLS SELF AND WIFE London, April 13.—The Rev.

IRISH HOME B01E PROVIHG POPULAR Nationalist Papers liv Dublin Take Kindly to It—Others Say It Is By No Mean* Final. La Crosse, Wis., April IS.—For the ttonallst papers of Ireland on the whole consider the government's home rule bill as satisfactory, although some of them profess to regard it as not being final. The Freeman's Journal describes the bill as the greatest, the boldest and the most generous of the three home rule bills and says: "We should not be surprised to find it received with hearty welcMM by the Irish party." Opposite Opinion. The Irish Times, unionist, says: "The measure will prove so utterly unworkable as to offer no middle course between complete separation from Great Britain and a return to the status of the union." Irish Independent remarks: "It would probably be correct In de scribing the bill to say that It gives us three-quarters of what we expected, and probably not so large a share of what we demanded. The measure CM» not to be regarded as final." The Cork Free Press says: "The government's scheme la Mt a solution of the Irish problem." PREMIER A8QUITH GIVEN GREAT CREDIT FOR BILL London, April 13.—Premier Asqulth'a speech yesterday as he introduced the new Irish home rule bill, is described by old parlimentarians as the most masterly of recent years. Today the speech Is the one subject of comment. This is the third attempt of the lib eral party to settle the Irish question, which caused disruption of the party under Gladstone and kept them out of power for nearly 20 years. Mr. As qulth's bill met with support from practically all the liberals and labor ites and both sections of the national ists, the Redmonites and the O'Brlen ltes. The unionists, of course, opposed It* and the Ulsterites, through their spokesman, Sir Edward Carson, made it clear that they object to a parlia ment in any form being set up in Ire land. The house was crowded when the prime minister arose, to the cheers of his supporters. Every seat on the floor and In the galleries was occupied and even standing room was at a pre mium. Among the spectators was the American ambassador, Whltelaw Reld, who, according to one of the London newspapers, "represented 22,000,000 Irishmen The premier was supported by his cabinet and backed by full benches of liberals, laborites and nationalists. He spent an hour reviewing previous bills and the changes which have come over the situation since Gladstone's last ef fort to settle the question and then took up 'lis own bill, which is divided In four parts—the legislative power of the new Irish parliament, its executive power, finances and the position of lieland after the grant of home rule. The object of the government, he ex plained, was to give Ireland with re gard to Irish affairs, real autonomy, "nly with such safeguards as the pe culiar cimcumstanceg of the case required. After the appointed day Ireland Is to have a parliament consisting of the king, a senate and a house of com mons to make laws for the peace and good government of Ireland. Care, however, has been taken to safeguard the Interests and suscepti bilities of the minority by the alloca tion of nearly one-third the member ship of the commons to Ulster. It is recognized that the majority in the ccmmons will be liberal, but the pro posal for a nominated senate has met with some critic ism. The continuation of 42 Irish mem bers at Westminster also meets with considerable opposition. Financial Question. Chief interest in the bill centerad In the financial arrangement. Premier Asquith pointed out that the Irish rev enue for 1912-13 Is estimated at £10,- 840.000 ($54,200,000), while the expendi ture for Irish services amounted to £12.350,(i00 ($61,750,000.) Ptndlng the time when the deficit could be converted into a surplus the collection of ajl taxes, with certain ex ceptions had been retained as an Im perial service. The bill will impose on the Irish parliament the obligation to pay all Irish services except reserved services, which would contimie in tem •»orsrial charge until transferred. There would every year be trans ferred from the Imperial to the Irish xchequer a sum representing the cost to the United Kingdom of the Irish services at the passing of the act, the cost to be determined by a beard of five, two of whom are to be appointed by England, two by Ireland and the chairman by the crown. That would be the first revenue of the Irish government, the second would be the Irish postal revenue and an additional sum is to be paid to Ireland —$2,500,000 the first year and a lesser amount each year until it is reduced to $1,000,000. The premier went fully Into the ques tion of financial relations and Irish representation at Westminster, which he considered Justified, as the Imperial parliament would continue to tax the whole United Kingdom. At the conclusion of the premier's speech there was quite a tilt between him and Mr. Law over the latter's statement at Belfast that the govern ment had sold the constitution in or der to hold office, a statement which the premier said was now a new style of argument in British politics. Sir Edward Carson, who followed the premier, declared it was the plain duty of the unionists to oppose the bill, while John Redmond gave the measure warm support. FERNS-PIERSON FIGHT TONIGHT.
