Steamship Frederick Till to Carry
Suite to Copenhagen Vessel
Is Being Guarded Carc-
fully at New York.
WASHINGTON. Feb. 10 Arrange
menta today were completed for the de
parture on Wednesday of Count von
Bernstorff and bis staff aboard the
steamship Frederik VIII for Christt
ania, Norway. The former Ambassador
and the personnel of the Embassy will
leave Washington Tuesday night.
Not all the German Consuls who were
Telieved from further duty here with
the breaking off of diplomatic relations
between the united States and Germany
will accompany Count von Bernstorff
out of the country. It was learned to
day that a number have been instructed
by the German government to depart
from their former posts for points in
faouth and Central America.
NEW YORK, Feb. 10. The steamship
Frederik VIII was given permission by
its owners in Copenhagen today to con
vey former Ambassador von Bernstorff
and his suite to a Scandinavian port,
according to a cablegram to the Scandi
navian-American line officers here. No
date has yet been set for the vessel's
departure, but the officials of the Scandinavian-American
line thought she
was likely to get away Tuesday or
Wednesday. In addition to the Am
bassador's suite provision has been
made for carrying about 200 German
Patrol of the waterfront by launches
carrying rapid-fire guns in the vicinity
of the Frederick VIII and heavy land
guns about the approaches to the ves
sel are part of the precautions wnicn
will be taken to protect Ambassador
von Bernstorff and other German of
ficials at their departure from this
port Wednesday.
Yeoman in Charge of Work Pleased
With Results,
T1EXD, Or., Feb. 10. (Special.) Six
recruits for the United States Navy
have been procured here in the past two
days by Chief Yeoman Enos and Sur
geon Sinclair, recruiting officers from
Portland. Of these, W. J. Fllppen, W.
It. Cannon and E. J. Davidson left last
night for Portland, and Charles E.
Chamberlain, W. S. Reese and W. M.
Larson started tonight. G. Giesar also
passed the examination, but was un
able to procure the consent of his
parents to his joining the service.
The number of recruits procured
here In two days' work is considered
unusually large by Yeoman Enos, who
attributes the success . to the dlplo
matte break between the United States
and Germany.
Many Telegrams to White House Are
In Same Language.
WASHINGTON. Feb. 10. Thousands
of telegrams from different parts - of
the country urging steps to maintain
peace between the United States and
Germany reached the White House to
day. Many of them were the same in
language and evidently were the re-r
eult of an organized movement. -
Kepresentatives of the Emergency
Peace Federation, recently organised at
New York, called at the White House
today In an effort to make an engage
ment to see President Wilson next
week. A mass meeting will -be held
here Monday. One of the objects of
the movement is to secure a referen
dum on war as suggested by William
J. Bryan.

I-ady Gives Simple Home Recipe That
She Used to Darken Her

For years I tried to restore my. gray
hair to its natural color with the pre
pared dyes and stains, but none of
them gave satisfaction and they were
ell expensive. I finally ran onto a
eimple recipe which I mixed at home
that gives wonderful results. I gave
the recipe, which Is as follows, to a
number of my friends, and they are
all delighted with It. To 7 ounces of
water add a small box of Barbo Com
pound. 1 ounce of bay rum and ounce
of glycerine. These ingredients can
be bought at any drugstore at very
little cost. Use every other day until
the hair becomes the required shade.
It will not only darken the gray hair
but make it soft and glossy. It is not
etlcky or greasy and does not rub off.

RIO JANEIRO. Feb. 10. The Bote

eign Affairs by the Brazilian Minister
at Berlin. In reply to Germany's decla-
ration of tlio resumption of unrestrict
ed submarine warfare, was made public
here today. Th text is as follows:
"I have transmitted to my govern-

formed me of the resolution of the
German imperial government to block

well-known authority. Meat forms uric
acid which clogs the kidney pores so
they sluggishly filter or strain only
part of the waste and poisons from the
blood, then you get sick. Nearly all
rheumatism, headaches, liver trouble,
nervousness, constipation. dizziness,
sleeplessness, bladder disorders com
from sluggish kidneys.
The moment you feel a dull ache In
the kidneys or your back hurts, or if
the urine is cloudy, offensive, full of
sediment. Irregular of passage or at
tended by a sensation of scalding, get
about four ounces of Jad Salts from
any reliable pharmacy and take a ta
blespoonful la a glass of water before
breakfast for a few days and vour
kidneys will then act fine. This famous
salts Is made from the acid of traps-e
and lemon juice, combined with lithla.
and has been used for generations to
flush clogged kidneys and stimulate
them to activity, also to neutralize the
acids In urine so It no longer causes
Irritation, thus ending bladder disor
ders. Jad Salts Is Inexpensive and cannot

lithla-water drink, which all regular
meat eaters should take now and then
to keep the kidneys clean and the blood
