After describing the hardships al already

"No official announcements made
of the number of unfortunates, of how

whether they will ever be freed, or
not. Some admiration must be con
fessed for the fact that no apologies
are made. There is no claim that the
policy is not opposed to the promises
made or that the laws of nations have
not been violated. Nothing is sa?d in
justification except to assert the law
of necessity and its logic, 'the will, the
power and the determination to put
them into effect' without regard to
right or convention, and apparently
wjthout regard to the protests of

The sympathy of this country for

The Reasons for
The Christmas Banking Club
ask about it.
TO provide a way for those of moderate and even small
means to save money.
To teach thrift to old and young by a systematic
method of saving a specified sum each week. The
Christmas Banking Club makes it easy for all to save.
Saving money is the one sure way to have money.
Most large fortunes began with mall savings.,
Many small deposits make a large sum; as the amount increases, your
interest in your balance increases, and it is that interest, called "the saving
habit," that leads to wealth.
To give all "a bank connection", so that they will learn the. many
ways in which our bank can be of service to them.

anxious to oblige and yet knew he
must stick as close to the law as a

Gold and Glitter
In days of youth, oft I was told:
"Not all that glitters, son, is gold."
But butter glitters in the vat,
And it's as good as gold, at that,
And in the hen's eyes as she lays,
There seems a glitter in her gaze
A strength supremely hard and bold,
For eggs are now worth more than
It may sound like I'm telling lies,
But look in some potato's eyes,
And see the glitter in a trice,
As. upward goes the market price!
It may be true that ancient line,
But I'll take eggs to gold for mine;
The glitter may not be so bright,
But if you get them fresh and right,
YouH have a fortune when you're old,
If all that glitters is not gold.

In Farm and Fireside we read
that in the Mazatlan district of Mexico
farm labor can be hired for from 15 to
30 cents a day, and the men board
themselves. Two of the large farms
down there, according to United States
Vice Consul A. Gordon Brown, use
American tractors to advantage.
"This seems to show two things:.
First a tractor can be used profitably
even where labor is cheap; and, sec second,
ond, second, it makes the best of inefficient
labor," writes the vice consul. "Put a
tractor in the hands of a languid Mex Mexican,

If the fire bell should ring would
you run and stop it or go and help to
put out the fire ? It is much the same
way with a cough. A cough is a dan danger

should no more try to suppress it than
to stop a fire bell when it is ringing,
but should cure the disease that caus causes

Cough Remedy. Many have used it
with the most beneficial results. It is
especially valuable for the persistent
cough that so often follows a bad cold
ot an attack of the grip. Mrs. Thomas
Beeching, Andrews, Ind., writes:
"During the winter my husband takes
cold easily and coughs and coughs.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is the

If this is out of the question for any

Before Senora de Riano, wife of the
Spanish ambassador, christened the
first warship ever built in the United
States for the Spanish government and
bestowed the name Isaac Peral on the
submarine, there took place a formal
ro.'igious ceremony, and holy water was
sprinkled on the ship. A prayer was
read as part of this ceremony. Never
before had a warship built at Fore
River ship yard been blessed and
christened in this manner.
No spectator was more interested
than were the members of thecrew of
the Peral, who had arrived several days
before and who were preparing to take
the ship to Spain under its own power.
Several hundred of the yard workmen
also stood near by and cheered as the
submarine slid into the water, amid
the tooting of whistles.
