Being asked to impart to other moth

is always exceedingly popular. Mm al

than anything in the world, because
of her own two daughters, and then
that she likes boys just a little better,

The Hague, Mav 2. (By Mail)
Despite the statements of certain pro-'
Knglish newspapers, it is now known I
authoritatively that it was fear of the)
Allies, and not of Germany, that
prompted the Dutch government to take
ware-like measures a month ago.
Certain reports reaching the Dutch
governmeot about steps taken by the
Allies at the Paris economic conference
caused grave concern here.
The Minister of War informed news
papermen that the government was ex
pecting an economic crisis of great im
portance, though he refused to go
further in his statement.
Evidently in anticipation of sharp
measures by the Allies, the government
chartered several steamers and snt
them to America for wheat.
Measures taken by the British gov
ernment to enforce the blockade of
Germany are steadily becoming more
irritating to the Dutch.
This does not mean, however, that
(he anti-German feeling of the greater
part of the people of Holland has been
Hollanders are generally convinced
that Germany has respected Dutch
neutrality in this war only because she
depends upon Holland for her food tup
plies. The people blame high food prices up
ou Germany because exportations to the
kaiser's realm have lessened the supply

alone by both sides.

AFTER SIX YEARS
Woman Made Well by Lydia

Columbus,Ohio. "I had almost given
lip. I had been sick for six years with
femule troubles and
nervousness. I had
a pain in my right
side and could not
eat anything with
out hurting my
stomach. 1 1 could
not drink cold water
at all nor eat any
kind of raw fruit,
nor fresh meat nor
chicken. From 178
pounds . I went to
118 and would get so weak at times that
I fell over. I began to take Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetahle Compound, and
ten days later I could eat and it did not
hurt my stomach. I have taken the
medicine ever since and I feel lijce a
new woman. 1 now weigh 127 pounds

already. My husband says he knows

that of preparedness, concerning which
the country seems to be settling down
to sane and sober views.
At the moment there is nothing on
which to base any vigorous, large buy

hns been considerably discounted, th
advance in the stock market last week
was conspicuously met by profit taking.
In trade reactionary movements aro
gaining in force, and these niut to
some extent affect' the security mar

They may induce activity and frequent
