Stories told by passengers and crew
of the sunken vessel Indicated that Ed

that the river Marne, for the second

There was some question as to
whether it was possible that history
would further repeat Itself and the
invader again be hurled back In pre

The allies, however, are holding
firmly at both ends for the present,

LONDON, June 5. The military

"The situation in the Aisne sector
may almost be Baid to have reached
that position of stability, to disturb
which would require the introduction
of some new factor. All operations
of the last 24 hours have had only
local or tactical significance and, in
the balance, have been as much in

After a long discussion the Brransre

of Hood River, which, in effect, de
clared that the organization take no
action at this time in either" Indorsing
or rejecting the Non-Partisan League.
inis was Introduced as a substitute
to the resolution proviainer that the
grange declare Itself against affiliat
ing with the league or with any other
political organization. The Mason
resolution was defeated by the narrow
margin of nine votes and aroused a
storm of argument for and against.
ine greater portion of the day was
consumed in discussion of the Non
partisan League question. A number
of interesting resolutions were Intro
duced to be acted upon later, amonsr
mem Demg one suggesting- the rental
of the insurance tax law Dassed bv that
last legislature which curtails the
powers of beneficiaries; another urging
enactment or legislation requiring deal
ers to sell seed and nursery etock true
to name; another requiring feedstuffs
to be sold in 100-pound sacks, and
nother requiring creameries and con.
denseries to give a bond where pay is
withheld for milk and cream for from
15 to 30 days. Anproprlate legisla

of the next Legislature if these resolu

Master's Salary Increased.
Consideration of the resolution pro
viding that the master of the State
Grange be paid a sufficient salary to
warrant his devoting his entire atten
tion to the work of the grange and
nominations of officers consumed the
entire time of the morning session.-
A resolution was adopted
providing a salary of $1200. with
X15000 additional for expenses.
Argument on the . resolution took
the time of the delegates until
nearly noon, when it was broken into
by the nominations and continued at
the opening of the afternoon session.
Election of officers was held to
night behind closed doors and grange
officials declared that under the by
laws the result cannot be announced
until 9:30 tomorrow morning and that
the canvassing board is sworn to
secrecy. The contest for master has
simmered down to a fight between C.

Our boys are distinguishing
themselves by their cleanliness
and jovial spirits while at the
Front. They believe that " Clean
liness is next to Godliness."
It is an indisputable fact that
people can keep healthy and well
in no better way than by keeping
their bodies clean, inside and out.
Many thousands of people are
killed every year by allowing
toxic poisons to accumulate
within the body, and then they
fall victims to fevers and all sorts
of maladies with special names.
The onlv wav to keep thoroughly
well is to drink plenty of water
daily, bathe frequently, and take
some good laxative like Doctor
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. Cleanse
the svstem inside as well as out
side. These " Pellets of Doctor
Tierce's are made of May-apple,
leaves of aloe and jalap. They
are sugar-coated, tiny pills, and
easy to take. No one should be
without them, and it is most
beneficial if " Pellets " are taken
at least once a week to clear out
the intestines. By reason of the
toxins, or poisons, bred in the in
testines these poisonous bacteria
are sent all through the blood
channels and the victim feels
tired, sleepy and headachy, or
the brain doesn't work as usual.
Sometimes the breath is offensive.
Pimples or boils break out on
the face or neck. This is a dan
ger signal which should warn you
that it is time to go to the nearest
drug store and obtain a twenty-five-cent
vial of Doctor Pierce's
Pleasant relicts, the best known
liver pill for half a century past.
1 They are standard and efficacious.
