"It Is true that the board recom- • anended awards for several of the offi- -•iiers. referred to by the secretary as - -icomramKiers of ships which were lost -or .seriously damaged by enemy sub- -•Tnai'ines or mines," Admiral Knight • j=ald. "But in each cnse there was a i Kpeciafl 'reason. Captain Vcrnon of vtJie -Oassin, Captain Dismukes of the '..Mount Vernon, Captain/Clmse of the ;annnesota, and Captain Graham of •4he Finland, saved their .ships by ex- .•celtout seamanship and discipline aft• ••er the ships were disabled." LNo information was available 10 %guklo the board in making reeom- rmenOations for Captain Satterlee of <£he Tampa, and Commander Ghent of •site.

The Tampa and Antilles •-were torpedoed and sunk "Commander Foote's - case is tlio •-nnly one in which the hoard reeoin- .-? mended the award of a. D. S.

"And this recommemln- : ••lloii- .was based chiefly upon the ree- • -ommendntions of Admiral Gleaves and .Admiral Mayo." Tiio award recommended for Cap• -rain Christy, the admiral said, was ' ibasod not only on his conduct at the time of the sinking of his ship, the • -nirmoi'ed cruiser San Diego, but for ••bis Inter service in command of the '.battleship Wyoming.

"The case of a ship destroyed by .an •-.jjnemy -against which it had no op- -portunlty to fire a shot," said Admiral ^Knight, "is, in the opinion of the Aboard, widely different from the i.-nses --•of. Lawrence said Perry, cited by the .•,'^ecfetai-y in his letter of January 3 to rSenator • Page. Lawrence owes his -Sarae, not to his conduct after the loss 1 ••sof his ship, when he was helpless sind g, but to the heroic spirit he raani- throughout Oie engagement, a •/•plrit that did not falter, even when ••-;:be was fatally wounded. It was he- after — th<_; loss of his shi, Dr. John L. Cop.[, well-known English explorer, who will head a polar expedition leaving England in June. Doctor Cope, who was a member of Sir Ernest Shackleton's last Antarctic expedition, will take an airplane along as part of his equipment, and an attempt will be made to fly from the expedition's base in the Arctic to the North pole. The party expects to spend five years in. the Arctic. thtft lie uttered £fie~ words that have made his name immortal and which are quoted by the secretary as establishing a precedent for his action In certain cases." iPerry is remembered in history, not for'-his gallantry in leaving the wreck of the Lawrence under fire, but for the indomitable spirit in which he resumed the fight on the Niagara and the skill and daring with which he led his almost defeated fleet to.

Ottawa, Jan. .24.—Tn the final report of the government on field crops in Canada, it was announced that the aggregate .value of all field crops in 1910 was $1,44P,;.53,500, as compared with a total value of $1.372.1)35,070 in 1018 and of S1,144,63G,450 in 1917. Both the acreage under crops and the value of crops produced is the highest on record. SAYS WHISKY NO CURE Chicago Health Officer Opposes Congressman's Efforts. Cites Figures al County Hospital— 2,551 Cases of Epidemic Reported —86 Die in Day. , Chicago, .Tan. 24.—The flu-pneumonia epidemic continues with increasing virulence. Chicago has 2,230 new cases of Influenza, with 41 fleaths, and 321 new cases of pneumonia, with 45 deaths, the highest total for both diseases, and the greatest number of deaths i'n a single clay since Hie twin diseases returned this year. With the highest peak reached in the number of people stricken and ileacl in the city. Doctor Itobertson launched a vigorous protest against Congressman Sabath's effort to get kgal permission to use whisky for the pneumonia and the flu. "Do you know that alcohol is one of the greatest predisposing factors we ever lincl for pneumonia?" said the health chief tQ reporters. "T want to tell the people of Chit-ago that whisky is not a'cure for the 'flu' nor u lielp, that it does not assist in any manner whatsoever in fighting' either one of the diseases. ~~ "Facts speak for themselves. At (he county hospital we'had 71 doaths IVcnn alcoholic pneumonia in September of this year, as against 230 last year and 235 the year before. . -. "I will even go further and say that the greatly reduced death rate we have had during this epidemic may be attributed in great part' to the absence of alcoholic conditions in the patients. We have now the smallest number of cases of alcoholic pneumonia in the country that we ever had in a great many years, for which we have records." POWER OF DOLLAR IS EASILY SHOWN Keep One Moving and See It Will Do for .Your Community. PAYS. MULTITUDE OF DEBTS When It I* Sent Out of Town, However, to Pay for What Can Be : Bought at Home It Is Gone ' Forever. (Copyright.) It Is a rather wonderful thing, when you stop to think about it what one lone dollar will do, if It is -kept- at work. This has been Illustrated fd-.o striking manner on several occasions 'by means of a very simple experiment. If you want to see just how im'po'rtarit -a role a sllverVTollar or a'doUar bill plays In the life of a community here is ihe way. to do it. Just attach a tag. to the dollar-and turn it loose, with the request that every person-who- recelves the dollar make a note on the tag as to how he received it.. The result will ba an eye-opener. , .... : Here Is the way it works: Smith, the lumber dealer, who first possesses the dollar, buys some groceries from Brown and pays for them with "the dollar. About that time Jones; the'plum- ber, who had done some work-for Brown, sends his collector around and Brown pays the bill with this Hollar. Jones owes Green, the printer, a small advertising bill, so he sends this dollar with possibly some others, to-fjreev to pay his bill. Green had just: put the dollar. In his cash drawer when in comes Black, the milkman, to whom Green owes a dollar-lor milk delivered at his house. Green takes the rl611ar out of his. cash drawer and pays Black. For some time Black has owed White, the carpenter, for some work done on his dairy house, so now he takes the dollar that Green has paid him and pays up what he owes White. White still owes for some lumber that he bought from. Smith, the lumber denier, so he takes the dollar and squares up his account with Smith. Smith now has his dollar back. Brown has been able to pay his plumbing bill, Jones has squared up with the printer, and so on, all around the circle. What Might Have Happened. Now suppose that Smith, instead of buying :iis groceries from Brown, had purchased them from a mail order house in a far distfint city and sent, his dollar to pay for them. Brown would not have had that dollar to pay Jones, the plumber; Jones could not have paid his printing bill; the printer would have had to stand off the milk man; White, the carpenter, would not have sot the money for the work he had done for the milkman and Smith would not have pot the .money which White owed him for lumber. This is all so simple ?:hat it requires no student of economics or professor of mathematics to flguie it out. Anyone can see that wheu Smith sends that dollar to Chicago or some other city where the mail order houses flourish, that dollar is gone so far as Smith nnd Jones and Green and the r.est of the' people in Smith's town are concerned. That dollar will n^ver come back to pay any bills in Smith's town. And the thing that stands out most striking, but is most often overlooked;' is that Smith, the man who first spends the dollar, is hurt just as much when he sends that dollar out of town as is the home grocer from whom he might have bought his groceries. Now just multiply this one dollar by a hundred or a thousand or ten thousand." One dollar may not seem to make much difference'in the average town,.,but a thousand dollars-or even a hundred dollars does make a differ- i ence. Just as one dollar will pay a' dozen or a hundred small bills, a hun-1 .AM.l)S.p-U TONIGHT REALART PICTURE CO. PRESENTS BRADY "FEAR MARKET" There is^ nothing so great as fear.. It maybe just a slight thing that will cause fear But a certain nervous tendency prevents many of us .from overcoming the affliction; It is the fear oi being found, out that forms the basis of this interesting Society Drama,, and you will find in it lots of entertainment.

Money back if it fails. The genuine box. has a Red ' >P w.itb 1 , Mr.. Hfll'a picture. At AttDrae Stom drea or a thousaria dollars will pay "a dozen or a hundred big bills. When Brown, the grocery man, owes a thousand dollars and can't pay It, he Is headed for the bankruptcy courts. Wher. Jones, the plumber, can't collect the money which is due him from Brown or maybe a dozen Browns, he is headed In the same direction as Brown. And so it goes all around the circle until it hits Smith or a dozen Smiths who have sent their money out of town to add to the fortunes of the mail order men. Buyer One Who Is Hurt. Thus, it will be seen that this buy- at-home proposition is really-a- selfish one with the man who buys the goods. He is 'not hurting the home merchant when he sends his money-out of town, any more tlran.he is hurting himself. Every sensible man knows that his livelihood depends upon whether business, in his town Is good or not. H business is not good, he cannot make a good living for himself and his family, no matter how hard he may work, and business cannot be good if the business jften in the town are not making money. This is a plain business proposition for every man and woman in the community. By spending their money at home they are helping, the home merchant only incidentally. They are "buttering their own bread. When they send their money to .the mail order, house, they are. not only hurting the. home merchant ' incidentally but—a thing more important to them—they are likely to be taking the bread out of the mouths of their own. children.
