When · the ship departed 1 was placed In the coal bunkers and arrived after 14 '.days In New Torfe, safa and well. : Tbe first thing that struck me on ar- rrrtng iff the TJntted States was tbe wide latitude permitted German propaganda: Most of the German papers pub-, llshed here were body and soul for the kaiser and tried dolly to Justify the Germao,flght for the German cause. In till* respect the government In Washington certainly went too far until )£ was. realize):!'that no concessions conld'bemade to the FmssUn govern- .mcnt and that concessions made to Washington were nothing but deceitful talk, sustained only by action when It served its Interests -of Imperialism.

' Kaldenlclreben I had plenty of time to review all that had happened. How different everything was after the first year of the war! Jty home -town, once a lively country settlement, was now as calm as a graveyard. In tola town, which had a population before the war of 3,000 souls, more than 40 had been killed and many others- crippled. Food was very high with little to be had. There was no enthusiasm for the war manifest anywhere. The people were do«mhearted, stmmed. It was the same In other cities. The longing for peace was universal yet no one talked of pence or expressed to desire for It . / . One word spoken, which displeased tbe autocratic government, merited the severest punishment That is how It Is te be .explained that the German people cannot force the Hohenzolierns into peace because toe government, with assistance of the military, smothered every expression of peace with blood, even at that early date.

V- "With thia idea in mind he consulted physicians, made experiments anl finally compounded a prescription that quickly and completely banished every s\Kn and flyraptom ol rheumatism from his ' system. H« freely KIVYQ his discovery to others who took it, with what might be -called marvelous, success. After years of urging" he decided to lot sufferers everywhere know about his discovery through the newspapers. -Con- jiellsvillo Drug- atoro has been app'oint- ed acentB for Allonrhu In this vicinity ·with the undorstAndinR that he will froely return the purchase money to all who state they received no benefit. --Adv. GOOD T H I N G S FOR THE FAMILY. Green vegetables, such as spinach, chard, lettuce and 'water cress shonUl appear as oftea as possible upon our tables.

Boil two large beets until tender, cook four medium-slued potatoes until mealy and dryf and dice two slices of salt pork and fry until the little cubes are brown with plenty of drippings.

Father, filled u-itli pride, essays the laying of the nig and on the first tug to eliminate a wrinkle, rips off the corner of the shop-worn, inoth-eaten. and antiquated rug. There is but one alternative: To keep the worthless rug. The rug of the past, purchased from a home merchant, was as ) represented, gave service and satisfaction. The new rug--the one from the catalogue pirate--Is worthless, no exchange is possible and the best must be made of a bad bargain. Th-e family has lost the price of the rug, a home merchant has been robbed of a sale and the' only one to profit has been the man who has cast the bait MORAX,:--The old home-purchased rug is better than the new mail order rug.
