THE BOSTON (xLOBE FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30. 1917 Disease Rides on the Dust of Sweeping Every woman knows how often sickness follows sweeping. Even gentle dusting, with no overheating or draughts, often results in colds, grippe, and even worse. Disease germs are the cause. Germs lurk in the dust. They are stirred into the air. Remain there hours. Are inhaled. Members of the household are stricken with serious disease. Disinfectant destroys the germs before they rise in the air. Dampen the broom the mop, the dust cloth with a solution of this positive germ -destroyer. It is used in hospitals for just such work. It is used in thousands of disease -free homes for killing ail germs in garbage cans, sinks, toilets, sunless corners of rooms, and wherever germs might collect and breed their menace to health. Use Lysol unceasingly. It is economical. A 50c bottle makes 5 gallons, a 25c bottle makes two gallons of absolutely dependable disinfectant. It is also invaluable for personal hygiene. Directions with 25c, 50c, .and $1.00 bottles. HON W. E. CHANDLER DEAD Secretary of the Navy in Arthur's Cabinet Lysol Toilet Soap Contains Lysol, and therefor protects the skin from germ infection.

FUNERAL OF REV JOHN ; DUNNING WHITNEY One of Best-Known Jesuits in the Country Had Been Treasurer of Boston College Once President at Georgetown Was Prominent as Senator From New Hampshire for 14 Years CONCORD, N H, Nov 30-"William Eaton Chandler, who as Secretary of the Navy In President Arthur's Cabinet was largely responsible for the beginning ui the modern United States Navy, died at his home here today. Mr Chandler was a member of the United State Senate for 14 years, having been appointed t0 nil an unexpired term in 1887, and twice reelected. Mr Chandler was twice married, first to Ann Caroline Gilmore, daughter of Got Joseph A. Gilmore of this city, and, second, to Lucy Hale, daughter of United States Senator John P. Hale of Dover. The second Mrs Chandler died in 1916, leaving one son. John P. Hale Chandler of Portsmouth. By his first marriage Mr Chandler had three sons, Joseph G. Chandler, advertising manager, and William D. Chandler, editor and publisher of the Monitor and Statesman, and Capt Lloyd H. Chandler of the United States Navy, now In command of a battleship. He Is survived also by five grandsons, three of whom are in the army or navy, and two granddaughters, and by seven great-grandchildren. He had followed with great interest the work of the navy and army in the present war. "FATHER OF THE NEW UNITED STATES NAVY" By M. E. HENNESSY In the passing of William E. Chandler, a month before he would have been 82, a life of almost endless political activity and continuous controversy with friend and foe on puDiie questions aim is ended. The Granite State loses on of its foremost and brilliant sons and the Republican party a champion whose shining armor invited blows from its opponents. His aggressiveness in politics started many contests, but he never shirked the responsibility or blame and he never ran away from an opponent. William E. Chandler always stood his ground. He struck hard blows in politics and he received them without a complaint. He was a two-fisted man In . I , . t;,, i , rtf liK no Lilt. i"ll!'l .1 i H1V.11'.. ... v. . i . . w -- . litlcal scars he carried to his grave, but that is because those who inflicted them long since joined the silent majority ere Mr Chandler arrived at tnat stage In his life when he was ready to forgive and forget the harsh things said and done in a heated political contest. Whatever opinion one may entertain of William E. Chandler, there is one title that friend and foe alike united, j ears ago in giving him, "Father of the new United States Navy." That he earned as the earnest advocate of giving the country a modern naval arm, which would enable this country to protect itself and its citizens against the aggressions of the other great Powers of the world. As Secretary of the Navy under President Arthur Mr Chandler, June 11, 1883, CITY MANAGER LEAGUE OF WALTHAM HAS ITS TICKET WALTHAM.

CHANDLEB, From a Recent Picture. approved the plan for the reorganization of the old navy, which resulted in the development of the present fighting fleet. He permitted many of the vooden ships to be destroyed instead of repaired, and laid the keels of the "White Squadron." the first ships of the modern navy'uf this country. Born at Concord, N H, Dec 28, 1835, Mr Chandler was educated at aeadem;eE ?n New Hampshire and Vermont and was graduated from the Harvard Law School at the age of 19. One of his classmates at the law school was Joseph H. Choate. He entered politics at once, served three terms in tile Mew Hampshire House of Representatives and was elected Speaker of the House when only 27 years old. His first entrance into National pol'ti-cal affairs was as one of tne founders of the Republican party and a supporter of Abraham Lincoln. President Lincoln appointed him solicitor and Judge Advocate General of the navy in 1865, and three monthB later he became Fist assistant Secretary of the Treasury. , Organized Greely Relief Trip While Secretary of the Navy, Mr Chandler organized the expedition which, under the command of Capt Winfield S. Schley, went'to the relief of the Greely Arctic exploration party. Fourteen years of service in the United States Senate ended when Mr Chandler was defeated for renomination in 1901 by Henry E. Burnham. His radical views on railroad legislation, which brought him in opposition to Republican party leaders, were responsible for this defeat. During the remainder of his life Mr Chandler made many attacks on what he considered the undue influence exerted by railroads in New England politics. S His laat Federal position was that of president of the Spanish War Claims Commission, to which he was named by President McKinley in 1901 and reappointed by President Roosevelt, but he resigned this position after Roosevelt put him into the Ananias Club during the controversy the latter had with Senator Tillman over some legislation pending In Congress and the appointment of a man to the commission who wac personally distasteful to him. While Mr Chandler's activities for many years were confined mostly to politics and journalism, he was a successful lawyer. The most noted law case with which he was connected of late years, was as chief counsel for the heirs of Mary Baker Ed3y, the fotinder of Christian Science, Ih their effort to break the will.

QUINCY FIRE CHIEF'S AUTO WRECKED ON WAY TO BLAZE QUINCY, Nov 30 Fire Chief Faxon Billings and engineer Herbert Griffin of ; Auto B:ngine 1, who was riding with the ' chief, had a narrow escape from serious i injury while responding to an alarm from box 223 shortly before noon today. The -chief was operating his own automobile and Just as he crossed the Adams-st railroad bridge he turned sharply to get out of the way of an oncoming auto. His car slewed on the wet surface of the macadam road and ran into a fence on the side of the street where Upland road and Adams st join. The machine broke off one fence post and tore another out of its hole and then the machine plunged ahead" into a pine tree, eight inches in diameter, breaking o'ff the pin tree. The chief s car got wedged in so tightly when the pine tree was struck that it was necessary to take off the bumper of the auto in order to release it. The chief and Engineer Griffin were thrown out and Chief Billings sprained his left leg. Engineer Griffin was unhurt. Auto Ladder 1 was just ahead of the chief'Scar, and the chauffeur, when he heard the crash and looked back, saw the chief's cr wrecked and stopped the tig ladder truck. In spite of his sprained leg. Chief Billings ran for the ladder truck With Engineer Griffin and both rode to the fire on the running board of the big ladder truck. The fire was in a small bungalow on a side street near the City Hospital, and was caused by the explosion of an oil stove. The damage was very slight. The bungalow is owned by Charles Johnson. After the fire was extinguished Chief Billings went to the City-Hospital, nearby, where his injured leg was treated. After that he was driven back to his car. The mudguards were crushed, the rear wheels were thrown out of alignment, but in spite of this Chief Billings was able to drive the car under its own power to a garage, where it will be repaired. Chief Billings said this afternoon that the accident and the slight injury to his leg will in no way interfere with the visit to this city of the Fire Chiefs' Club of Massachusetts, whih is scheduled for Sunday afternoon. Members of the club will be granted permission to visit the Victory torpedo boat destroyer plant and, the Fore River shipyards. ,n Smashing the Hindenburg Line Is the U-Boat Nightmare Ending?
