German prisoners of war are to be
utilized in the digging of peat in or order
der order to eke out France's failing fuei

supply. They will work under the

supervision of territorials familiar

with the peat regions who will be

given long leaves from the army for

that purpose. Engineers have been

sent to the principal peat bogs, such
as the "Grande Briere" near Nantes,

to organize the work. The peat will
be consumed as far as possible by
factories located near the beds so as

to require the least possible trans

portation.

Twenty-four years ago, the state

about it, either. The government

THE WHITE RACES.

Why They Are Unable to Colonize the

One reason and a most important
one why white races are unable to
colonize the tropics, dying out inevita inevitably

have not enough sweat glands. The
sweat glands are the refrigerating ap apparatus

It lowers the temperature. In drawing

the faucet. The water will flow quietly
and quite at rapidly. If you have no

citizen's recommendation:
Monroe street, says: "I had a
severe case of backache. I couldn't
straighten up after I once stooped
over, unless I took hold of something
for support. Often I could see dark
spots floating in front of me and
sometimes everything before me be became
came became black. A druggist recommended
Doan's Kidney Pills, saying they were
the best in the store, so I began us using
ing using them. One box cured me."
Price 60c. at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy get
