A Very Usejul Cilizen In the death of, Dr. Harvey W. Wiley the United Slnlcs lias lost 1111 extremely useful and able citizen. Every mlmWUinl of the United States for the last two decades has had purer, belter food than lie might have had if Dr. Wiley had not lived. That, when you stop to think about it, represents iiuitc an achievement. Few men can hope to serve their fellow-citizens any better. In recent years Dr. Wiley was not as much in the public eye as formerly —proof, in itself, that a great part of his labors had been crowned with success. His sensational fight for pure foods had been largely victorious. That was what put him out of the limelight. In itself, it was a great testimonial to the high value of his .ser- vice.—NBA. m,YTHKVlLLE, (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS Silly Measures Only Nine Volts The final vote, on the London naval treaty proved that the opposition to the: treaty was not nearly as strong numerically as it, was vocally. 'For a good many days the die-hards had a grealj deal to say, and to judge from their actions one would have supposed that at least half of the nation's citizens were walking the streets nl night in an agony of fear lest our navy Lie sunk without a trace. But when it came to a showdown, there were just, nine opposition," votes. It may be that it is just a little; bit harder to get Americans excited about the clangers that lie in co-operating with Europe than it used to be. Six or ejglit years ago the whole nation was suspicious and jumpy about such things. Now, however, we seem to have grown more sensible.

The Army remembered the anniversary, partly because It. was at, Peking lhat General Charles P. Snnnierall, its present, chief ot stafT. distinguished himself by leading an attack which cleaned out the sacred precincts ol the Imperial and Forbidden cities. Thu International ^Expedition The Boxers \verc • Chinese \vho wanted to drive Uie foreigners out of the country. Their Chinese name was s o in e I i m c s translaled as ••HightC'jiis and United Fists." Bo it wa.s cusy lor the foreigners tu tiling of calling them boxers. l.iJCs ot foreigners seemed to be endan- jgcred as they Increased hi strength, so the United States, Japan and he European powers Joined in sending an armed expedition to north China. The Manchu government KOI into action as soon ns this force landed, lining up with the linxcrs. A little body ot diplomats, legation guards, merchants, missionaries and their families found themselves cooped up In Peking behind barricades with a large throng of Chinese Christians. They held out for two months before they were relieved, in justifisblc fear ol imminent massacre. Although t';iey senl cut messages for aid they could not. Icll whether any reached their destination and !hc liist assurance the starving garrison had that It would ever be rc- lir.ved was heard from the booming puns of the allied troops. The Hth U. S. infantry imticr Colonel A. 5. Daggett led t li e American advance, straight against huge ancient ramparts which had stoiiri for more Ihan 400 years. The Chinese poured n hoi (Ire from atop ihe walls and lemporanlj :lrovc the Americans back. Daggett selected two companies and led them across (he flre-stvept area, covered by the fire of Ihe rest ol the regiment, to the foot of the wall, where there was n certain precarious shelter. Uuglev Calvin P. Titus—who L« now a lieutenant colonel and who has the Concrcrslonal Medal of Honor for his feal lhal day—threw off his, weapons and equipment and clambered up Ihs sheer face of the masonry by aid of frequenl dangerous loeholds. No Chinese sav. him and he reached Ihe top un- I'.nrl. A cord \viis thrown to him and he hauled up rifle and am- mimiiion. going into action immediately. Captain Henry G. Learned nnd the rest of the Uvo companies followed after and the cc-lors of the Hth were displayed on the prove the work of the organs that are weak; namely, the pancreas and the kidney. The work of the pan- cveas Is Improving by the giving of insulin end by changing Ihe diet, Tne work of the kidney Is improved by the use_of sweat baths which eliminate materials through ihc skin and by A change In diet so as to throw less stress on Hi: kidney. In every one of the conditions In which acldosis develops, alien- i tlon must be given lo Ihc water ex- i change and it must be seen tha- Ihe patieiH has a sufficient amount- of water lo lake care ol all of Ihe factors that have been mentioned In Ihe discussions of water. There exists also the possibility ol correcting the acid state to some extent by the use of foods that tend more toward Ihc inkalineside. There are many foods which have value for Ihls They Include particularly peas, oranges, potatoes, peaches, cantaloup, celery, carrots, beats and lima beans. There are other foods which tend particularly toward the production of acid. Among them are bread, eggs, meats oysters, oatmeal and rice. If severe acidosls is present, the person must lie kepi absolutely at rest and care must be taken to see thai he Is kept warm. The opposite conditon to acidosis Is alkalosis. This occurs very rarely and usually.because the |»r- son has been laking too much alkalis or too much baking soda or bicarbonate of soda to overcome what, he thinks Is an acid condition. Many people, who suffer occasionally from ulcers of the slom- ach or from hyperacidity, take immense quantities of soda for the correction of Ihc condition. Obviously alkalosis can easily be con- Irolled by culling down on the amount of alkalis being laken h the form of drugs and foods. When alkalosis Is due to excessive breathing such as rarely occurs In hysteria or nervous dLs- cas:s or other disease, the patlcnl may be given air to breathe which contains an abnormally large amount of carbon dioxide until the •system is brought under control A COMPLETE SUCCESS "There's a voncierlul echo iromid here," said the guide, "but you have to shout very loud.
