Then the king proceeded to talk tail sat before his desk table as successful American business man. He spoke to me in fluent English smiline oceasionallv and lapsing into American slang.

Then we talked of Europe after the war and of socialism for even Xorway, homeland of democracy, has its socialists. The Citizen King told how recently he unexpectedly encountered five socialist members of the Norsk parliament. With his usual directness he sought their country to bill goods to Bergen, Norway, from Bergen to the frontier and then from the frontier to points in countries at war, he thought was not true neutrality.

As the king talked I was busy thinking of his majesty's frank expressions regarding hyphenated Americans. His admonition on the dutirrs of naturalized Americans made last July at the opening of the Christiania exposition: Vs orMegians who have taken the oath of American citiienship you are bound by a double tie." he told thousands of Norweslan-Americans. "Your love is true to yonr old home as vour loyalty must be to the United States of We spoke of the use of neutral flags at sea and his majesty said that he considered true neutrality is in the interest of humanity. He said that if the use of a neutral flag would force the Germans to examine a ship before torpedoing It and by so doing warn the passengers acquaintance, although they had refused invitations to visit at his house. The king wras busy telling them In the Basement would be a socialist, when an official photographer focussed the group and the apprehensive socialists fled.

War had hardly been declared when the managing director of Norway-on-the-Sea conferred with his state council and told them that for fear food supplies would soon run short, war bread should be made the fashion. But the council outvoted him. However, having spoken his mind, the king promptly assumed charge of the poor of Christiania and he went on to tell me how eager everyone was for public service. How quickly a charity for relief urged the paramount importance of their divergent plans.

When the Inevitable deadlock ensued he told how he had been called upon to arbitrate and he wont at it like an American man of affairs and relieved the situation. Too much interested to remember that I spoke with a crowned yet ready to gie any charity. The temporary officers are W. B. Lensing, vresident; Herbert Ahlering, secretary; Ed Klein, treasurer.

The St, Philip's church was crowded to capacity at the three masses. Following the masses a big country dinner was served by Mrs. Louis Dippel, Mrs. Leo Hartman and Mrs. Joseph Weinzapfel.

A program was given in the school hall in the afternoon. Hundreds of people went out from Evansville, many making the trip in automobiles. The Evansville Knights of St. John and a band from St. Wendel attended County Clerk Wilson has received inquiries from Montana after the relatives of Ida A.

HOW TO REDUCE YOUR WEIGHT A SAFE -AND RELIABLE WAY People who are over-burdened with superfluous fat, know only too well the discomfort an ridicule that over-stout people have to bear. If you are carrying around five or ten pounds of unhealthy fat you are unnecessarily- weakening your vital organs and are carrying a burden which destroys the beauty of your figure. There is no need of anyone suffering from superfluous fat. If you want to reduce your weight in a simple, safe and reliable way, without starvation diet or tiresome exercise, spend as much time as you can in the open air, breathe deeply, and get from any good druggist a box of oil of korein capsules; take one after each meal and one before retiring at night.

Weigh yourself once a week so as to knew just how fast you are losing -weight and don't leave off the treatment or even skip a single dose until you are down to normal. Oil of korein is absolutely harmless, is pleasant to take, helps digestion and is designed to consume the excessive fatty tissue by increasing the oxygen-carrying power of the blood. Even a few days' treatment should show a noticeable reduction in weight, footsteps become lighter, your work seem easier and a lighter and more buoyant feeling take possession of your whole being. Every person who suffers from superfluous fat should give this treatment a trial, there is noth ing better. head, I spoke of my visit to Russia and the threatened Russian CALICOES 2,000 yards full pieces fast colored Calicoes, indigo blues, greys and fancies.

Mrs. Mary Stockwell, on which inheritance tax is to be paid, has been set for hearing June 10 in probate court. She contends that an inheritance tax has been paid in New Jersey on the $82,000 worth of securities held in that state.

If the deduction is made the tax will amount to $8,175, and if not, to $4,950. 500 MILE RACE (Continued From Page 1.) Palma's Mercedes is notable. De-Palma had victory almost within his grasp in 1912, but with one lap to go, was forced to walk his car in while Dawson sped steadily around for the prize. De-cause of this piece of bad luck and because of his previous record on this and in other cities, many felt he was about due to win. Bob Burman in a car of that name is another to be counted in.

Wilcox Won Test Based on the elimination tests, "Howdy" Wilcox has It on the field. He made a lap at the rate of 98.2 miles a minute. De-Palma's Mercedes made the next best time in 97.6. Resta's Peugeot was third with 97.5. Cooper's and Anderson's Stutz cars made the next best time with 97.7 and 96.4 apiece.

With three Stutz cars among the first five in the eliminations, it is easy to see why they are favorites in the betting. For the same reason the Sunbeam ranks high. Porporato's Sunbeam made 95.1, ranking eixth; and the Sunbeam that qualified with Oldfield at the wheel, came seventh, with an average of 93.7 miles an hour. Old-field was slated for a time to drive this car. but later was crowded out.

The third Sunbeam with Grant driving ranked twelfth with 89.2. The cars drew their numbers for this race as the result of the elimination trials. Wilcox Stutz drew No. 1 because It made the fastest speed. The Mercedes was next speediest, and so on down the line.

There were 41 original original entries for today's race, but the speed required to qualify (80 miles an hour) was too stiff a test for many and they were eliminated by the wholesale. Others could not get into shape in time and withdrew.

That king leaned hack and smiled at me defect of strength of will. Sir Fisher, who is strictly subordinate to the head of the admiralty, tried to make himself the Kitchener of the navy.

Unfortunately for him-Belf, his supreme effort to dominate the navy came at the moment when Lord Kitchener's dictatorial authority at the war office was being overthrown. Having at last put Kitchener in his place the British government had no intention of permitting Lord Fisher to' become a new irresponsible and so he was not recalled to his vacated deck. Churchill Was Loyal. Winston Churchill acted in quite the opposite manner to Lord Fisher when the crisis between the civil and naval heads of the admiralty arose. Instead of running off in a sulk, Churchill handed in his resignation and then remained at his post until his successor was chosen.

He accepted without demur the position of chancellor of the duchy of Lancaster, which is the least important position in the cabinet and concerns itself with the administration of certain Lancaster properties of the king. The willingness of Churchill to accept loyally whatever position the government desired him to occupy will react in his favor. Churchill left the admiralty discredited, and under fire not only of public opinion, but also of many members of parliament of his own party. He probably saved his political future by accepting the public humiliation of a reduction in rank loyally and without a suggestion of running away. Under the new regime at the admiralty there will he no scandal of constant disputing such as occurred between Churchill and Lord Fisher.

But, otherwise, it is difficult to see what Balfour and Admiral Jackson can do which hasnt been done before. Anyway, the two prime accomplishments of the British navy will continue, German commerce will be kept off the seas and British troops and supplies will be ferried to France secure against submarine attacks.

The ap pointment of Admiral Sir Henry Jackson as first sea lord of the British admiralty does not mean that there will be any essential change in England's naval policy. Admiral Jackson owes his post primarily to the fact that Lord Fisher resigned as first sea lord and committed the unpardonable sin of leaving the admiralty in a rage before final, action had been taken on his resignation.
