Jump from Bed
in Morning and
Drink Hot Water
Tells why everyone should drink
hot water each morning
before breakfast.
Why is man and woman, half the
time, feeling nervous, despondent, wor
ried; koine days headachy, dull and un
strung; some days really incapacitated
by illness.
If we till would practice inside bath
ing, what n gratifying change would
tnke place. Instead of thousands of
half sick, anaemic looking souls with
pasty, muddy complexions we should
see crowds of happy, healthy, rosy
cheeked people everywhere. The rea
son is that the human system docs not
rid itself each day of all the waste
which it nccuniiilntes under our pres
ent mode of living. For every ounce
of food and drink taken into the system
nearly an ounce of waste material must
be carried out, else it ferments and
forms ptomaine like poisons which are
absorbed into the blood.
Just as necessary as it is to clean
the ashes from the furnace each day,
before the fire will burn bright and
hot, so wo must each morning clear the
inside organs of the previous day's ac
cumulation of indigestible waste and
body toxins. Men and women, whether
sick or well, are advised to drink each
morning before brenkiast, a glass of
real hot water with a teaspoonful of
limestone phosphate in it, as a harm
less means of washing out of. the stom
ach, liver, Kidneys and bowels the in
digestible material, waste, sour bile and
toxins; thus cleansing, sweetening and
purifying the entire alimentary canal
before putting more food into the stom
ach. Millions of people who had their turn
of constipation, bilious attacks, acid
stomach, nervous days and sleepless
night have become real cranks about
he morning inside bath. A quarter
pound of limestone phosphate will not
cost much at the drug store, but is suf
ficient to demonstrate to anyone, its
cleansing, sweetening and freshening
effect upon the system.

their work hours and compel them to

The Corvallis Times, if we are not
mistaken, seems to think that the senate
reporter for the Capital Journal has no
sympathy for the folks over in Benton
county in the beaver-infested region
just because he spoke of Lafferty's bill

light and airy vein. Such is not the
case. It was because he did sympathize
with the beaver victims that he men

make some announcement.
Passports Suspended
The state department today suspend
ed issuance of American passports to
travelers abroad. Xo explanation was
given and the length of the suspension
was not announced.
President Confers With House
The president conferred today with
his personal adviser. Colonel E. M.
House, who hastened here secretly over
night. It was expected the lid would be kept
on -congressional discussion for the mo
ment if possible and that as prompt
ly as possible the president would con
sult Chairman Stone of the senate for
eign committee and others high in his
counsels, including perhaps his full cab
inet. . ,
The president studied the German
war note alone all last evening, and
Colonel House was "hooked as his first
caller today. With him he was to can
vass the whole situation.
Germany's historic move is regarded
as an act of a people, willing to risk
the antagonism of the whole world, in
the final effort to win by applying the
starvation means that- in different
form has been applied to her. Officials
see in it a desperation bred of economic
al suffering.
This government's peace suggestions
and the fear of a break with Germany
have been interwoven.
The allied reply to peace overtures
turned the scales. While regarded here
as leavin? the peace door open, events
did not develop rapidly enough to ward
off the crisis, officials' say.
The clamor of a suffering people is
regarded as having overcome the more
moderate trend of the llollweg regime,
while the forceful influence of Von
Hindenbmg determined the new sea
war, Teutons here declared.
Germany's new submarine policy was
decided up, according to German dip
lomats, immediately after the entente
sent its unfavorable reply to President
Wilson's peace note.
