the Persian delegates now In Paris
continue their strua-sle to maintain
the. Independence of their nation. The
news of Great Britain- desire to ex

as an unexpected ehccK and with such
effect that the head of the delegation.

me of the hlch hopes Persia places in
President Wilson's principle of self
determination. erl.iaa Feel Despondeat.
"We are unable to say what our fu
trre plans will be." the secretary said.
"We are dependent at the turn Ang-lo-Pcr.-lan
affairs have taken. President
Wilson, whin we saw him. assured us
of his support, and this jrreatly cheered
us. To us. he Is the champion of the
small and weak nations.
"But what use is there in President
Wilson defending- article 10 of the
leac-us of nations if Ksypt and Persia
are not accorded their independence?
We can consider only a a master that
country which Interferes In another
country's financial affairs. We were
disappointed that President Wilson did
not protest aarainst this sooner."
The Persian delegation here is quite
unofficial and is composed of influen
tial liberals of that country. Nothing
could be learned of the shah's Intended
trip to London or whether he would

LONDON. Aug. IS. (Special cable.)
The Persian deleicaHnn at the peace
conference believes it was Great Brit
ain that thwarted Its attempts to obtain
a hearing for Persia so that an agree
ment could be reached at Teheran with
the shah. This belief of the Persian del
egation Is emphasised in a dispatch to
the Manchester Guardian, from Its spe
cial Paris correspondent. He adds that
the Persian delegation's hope is that
before the agreement can be ratified,
Persia will be admitted to the league of
nations and thereby will be able to de
mand a revision of- the treaty by the
league.
During the progress of the negotia
tions an interview with Lord Curxon
was refused to the Persian delegates
until an agreement had been reached at
Teheran. Then Lord Curxon would be
willing to grant an Interview. The Per
sian anti-treaty party in Paris, it is
said, will try to influence the elections
at home before the treaty is ratified
by the Persian parliament and. if un
able to do that, may try to hold up
the elections entirely.
Policy ef Crrea Assailed.
The Daily Herald, the radical labor
newspaper, says of the treaty:
"Persia is the type and symbol of
foreign policy so greedy as to insure.
past hope of escape, the nemesis of
its own greed. In 1907 we guaran
teed the integrity and independence
of the Persians and proceeded to de
stroy them. Jn 1911 we guarantee them
again and proceed to destroy what is
left of them.
"For a little while in 1911 It looked
as if Persia under the financial di
rection of W. Morgan Sinister (the
American treasurer - general of Per
slal. was going to establish for Itself
a stable, progressive and Independent
form of government. Kussia smashed
that chance by an ultimatum followed
by a reign of terror. We acquiesced.
It might have been supposed that with
Russia no longer a danger. Great
Britain would let Persia alone.
British Warmer ot a Partaer.
"And what is the reason? Persia Is
a rich country. We ask the British
working man to consider these facts.
He is not a shareholder in Anglo-Persia
enterprises. He will not get the prom
ised wealth but will have to pay for
the getting of it.' Kven If it meant
wealth for him the British worker
would not stoop to such methods."

TECAY is the, thing that kills.
People die because some part
of the body decays and gives out.
The only one who can stop tooth
decay is a dentist, and the more a
dentist knows, the better advice he
can give and the better work he
can do. ' '
The knowledge of one dentist is
limited, but the knowledge of sev
eral dentists, put together amounts to a great deal.
That is the advantage offered you by offices using
the E..R. Parker System, where a number of dentists
combine their knowledge and skill and work together.
You can come and have, your teeth examined free.
You can find out if some of your teeth are decaying
and if disease is establishing itself in your mouth.
It ought to be worth your while to learn exactly what
condition your teeth are in, particularly as it costs noth
ing to find out.
God gives us all but one set of permanent teeth, and
it is little short of a crime to neglect them.
