Undoubtedly one of the big men of
the day is Hoover, American food
controller. He prefers to call himself
food administrator, having the same
dislike as Mr. Asquith for "that
word, dictator." He has been men
tioned in responsible quarters as a
likely successor to President Wilson
in the White House, and the sugges-
'tion was being warmly received by
people who do not know what his
politics are. If he is able to keep
prices of food in the United States at
a reasonable level through the war
ther is no boon he could demand from
his fellow-countrymen that would not
be granted; and people have such con confidence
fidence confidence in him that if he fails they will
probably argue that no one could have
succeeded. Over and over again it
has been said that before the United
States entered the war Hoover was
the biggest American living. His
work for Belgian relief kept Uncle
Sam on the international map. When Whenever
ever Whenever a European Sought of an Am American

Lived Long in England
When he was made food dictator
pro-Germans and others denounced
him as an Englishman. He is not an
Englishman, but he has lived most of
his working years in England and
working for English interests. His
business is English; his partners are
English. Probably he was never
heard of in the United States before
the beginning of the war. Thi3 is
rather wonderful, for our cousins as
a rule do not overlook their million millionaires,
aires, millionaires, whether at home or abroad,
and Mr. Hoover beolngs to that se select

he is not much past forty, had been
living almost in retirement for some
years, and even in England, outside

was not known. He leaped almost

ships in the daytime, for their size
and flimsiness made them an easy
mark for artillery. And when they
went out at night, to drop bombs,
they had hard work to hit anything
smaller than a good-sized town. They
are responsible for the death of many
unarmed men, of women" and children,
and the destruction of a great deal of
private property, but the harm they
did to Germany's opponents is almost
nil in comparison with the harm they
have done to the Germans in causing
the rest of the world to hate them

The best method for cleansing the whole

to take as much outdoor exercise as possible, drink
hot water before meals, and take a pleasant, laxative,
vegetable pill occasionally. Such a one is made up
of May-apple, leaves of aloe, root of jalap; made
into a sugar-coated pill that gives tone to the bowels.
This was first made nearly fifty years ago, and sold by
almost all druggists as Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets.
Such simple means will prevent auto-intoxication.

are constantly working, separating the poisons from the
rheumatism, neuralgia, dropsy and many other serious disturbances.
This can be avoided by stimulating the kidneys to increased action, and because of its tonic effect
on these organs I would advise any one to purchase Anuric (double or triple strength); which is to be had
nowadays at almost any drug store, and take it three times a day. Also drink not water before meals.
