FOR THE TEUTONS
Berne (Correspondence of the As Associated
sociated Associated Press) Germany has re resorted
sorted resorted to stringent measures of re reducing
ducing reducing its coal consumption during
the coming winter by cutting down its
train service and curtailing the num number
ber number of people who travel, especially
in express trains.
The latest edition of the Journal of
the Association of German Railroads
announces that at a recent meeting
of the representatives of all German
railroads, held in Berlin, it was unan unanimously
imously unanimously decided not only to reduce
the number of; trains, but to put such
a high cost upon traveling; by means
of radical raises in the price of tick tickets,
ets, tickets, as to insure that only those will
travel who absolutely must do so.
The advances contemplated and
which probably will become effective
within a very short time are as follows:-
On all tickets' for express
trains costing up to five marks, an
extra charge of three marks will be
levied; tickets hitherto costing from
five to 10 marks will be taxed eight
marks; from 10 to 15 marks, 13
marks extra; from 15 to 25 marks,
20 marks extra, and for sums above
25 marks, 10 marks extra for each
10 marks as ordinarily charged.
Likewise there is to be a sharp
limitation in baggage regulations so
that both the size and number of
trunks, as well as their weight, will
be rut down. "For the first time in
many years, Sunday trains are to be
reduced in number. Hitherto they
have always run on weekday sched schedules,
ules, schedules, sometimes even have been in increased
creased increased in number because of the
German's love of making Sunday ex excursions.
In order to assure the punctual ar arrival
rival arrival and departure of trains, which
unfortunately suffered greatly last
winter because it was impossible to
get up enough steam to haul the long
heavy express trains on time, the
time tables will be revised so that
trips will be longer than under the
present schedule, though probably no
longer than they have been actually

Magic Words, "With the Colors."
In these times there are some let

we have ever read before. They are
written on sheets of paper stamped
with the Stars and Stripes and the

they bear the magic words. "With the

least is on its way to yon. Each one
of our 16 cantonments, where the new
national army is being trained, is
using more than & million sheets of
thl paper every month. In the draft
army alone that means 16,000.000 fila filaments
ments filaments of love every month reaching
out from the great encampment where
the men are being" trained into the
greatest army this nation has ever
dreamed and binding tnem to the
hearts at home. Multiply that by
thinking of all the other places where
Uncle Sam has men with the flag in
7t&, on the high seas, in arse arsenals
nals arsenals and officers' training camps and
"Over There" in France. In all these
places men are writing home. Those
unassuming little sheets of notepaper
gladden millions of hearts a day.
They transfer more love from one
part of the world to another than' sta statistics

pretty poor anyway when it comes to
reckoning in terms of love and human
tenderness. Let's put it this way:

called It "the last evidence that any anybody

It every thinking citizen could see
with his or her own eyes something
of the actual work being done for our

had to take its choice between run running

whole town go without water, electric

to ask. If Mr. Harris' residence was

near the plant to bear their troubles
with Christian resignation, and if
they wanted the plant shut down,
thereby leaving him without light

battalion of home guards to protect
the plant and keep its machinery running.,-
When the city owned fourteen acres
or more land in the manufacturing
district, to have placed the electric
light and water works plant in the
residential section, in the humble
judgment of this paper, it was little
less than criminal. Rather than have
placed it in close proximity to the
residence of Alderman Meffert, Ald Alderman

we would have suffered our right arm
severed from our body. That is the
way we feel about the matter.-rBan-ner.

mation inflammation is set up in the nearby tissues.
Hague has said, that rgout is rheumatism, and
rheumatism is gout." If uric acid is formed in excess
within the body it is passed on to the kidneysj which
act as a filter to pass off tl)is poison. If the excess is
not excreted by the kidneys, it is distributed thru the
tissues. The choice sites for such storage are in the
joints, muscle-sheaths, where the circulation is weak weakest,
est, weakest, and where also the alkalinity of the blood is lowest.
Consequently we must do everything to thrjw off this
.uric acid poison, and simple methods are best. Flush
the kidneys by drinking six to eight glasses of water
between meals. During winter months the circulation
is apt to be sluggish and the blood stream retarded.
Eat less meat, drink more water, and take ANURIC
(double or triple strength) after each meal and at
bed time for several weeks at a time and you will be
free from uric acid and the diseases that follow.
The urine is often cloudy, full of sediment ;
channels often get sore and sleep is disturbed two
or three times a night. This is the time you should
consult some physican of wide experience such as

have had both, so am not worried
about that. We are a good long wy

next spring. The general opinion
here is that the war will be over
some time next spring, anyway I

night. I sleep under four blankets
and am not any too warm. No, we
do not get very much war news. I
suppose you know more about what
