' Although there were no developments today with respect to the Republican United States Senatorial situation, It Is believed that Governor Edge will speak on the subject before the end of the present week. Inquiries at the Executive Offices today brought forth no Information, but there was an Intimation that a statement might be forthcoming within a day or two. The statement in question is ex-! pocted to contain the announcement cf the Governor's candidacy for the Rfpubliea nomination at the Septem ber primaries for the full term of el years in the Senate at Washington. It is not now believed here that Mr. Edge will go to the wire for the short term honors, thlo view having gained strength since the statement of David Eaird that if necessary he would con sent to irubmlt himself to the will of the voters for the short term running from the November election to March i. 1919. Political observers here are ea gating in some interesting speculation os to what may happen in the event Ei'ge doos not come out for the short term and Eaird does. The sentiment seemed to be that the Governor would make a stronger candidate against Mr. Colgate, who will run for the short term, than Mr. Ralrd, who Is regarded as an oW tine Republican whose Idess and political alignments in the past have weaned the vote of the procressivei from him and which v'te undoubtedly would go to either 'o!irate or Record p against Daird , -T'e man who could, therefore, nt- Xact the attention of the primary vot er to his short term candidacy for the nomination might also influence them In large numbers to vote for him for the lull term nomination also. With the Governor refraining from en torlng the 6hort term contest, it is figured he would lose many votes because of this situation. There has been a report here that Hamilton F. Kean, of Elizabeth, Is also preparing to announce himself a candidate.

The rettlng-well stage of grip, pneumonia or other illness is the most dangerous of all because the body, weakened by the disease, is wide open to attacks of other lurking germs. That is why all the organs of the body must be kept in their best working order, not only to drive out the poison left by the disease, but that the patient shall regain strength as soon as possible to avoid further attacks resulting from the poisons in the system. As a means toward good health after any Illness Father John's Medicine builds up the body because it is all pure wholesome nourishment and free from, opium, morphine, chloroform or other poisonous drugs or alcohol. Father John's Medicine has tbrnat t.rmihios much and snrp throats, and as a tonic and body builder. Proof:- "After an attack of pneumonia the doctor ordered me to give my baby Father John's Medicine and as a result he regained health and strength. I always give it to my children when ever they catch cold. I am writing this lo tell you how grateful I am to Father John's Medicine." (Signed) Mrs. Geo. Hunsberger, 1054 Pike St., Reading, Pa. Because of its body building, strength-giving food value, Father John's Medicine is an ideal family medicine for all who are weak and run-down. Artillery Duel on - the Picardy Front PARIS, April 4.
