"That departure from the eountry is

to be ascribed to necessary precaution
ary measures.
"Since tho provisions of article 12
of the treaty of 1785 and article 13, of
tho treaty of 171W do not oppose
blockade or obstructions similar to
, blockade, the U-boat iwartare does not
contravene them. In turn Germany has
to renroach -the United State -with a
yiolatiou of those treaties in that with-
the German government will adhere to
the maintenance of article 23 of the
treaty of 1799, inasmuch as it assumes
from the declaration heretofore made
by the state department that the
American government holds the same
view of the present situation as well
as for a possible state of war; in the
same supposition it will place a liberal
construction upon the article, that is
to say will not prevent money remit

About. 150 indignant citizens of Polk

of the Polk county officials in work

Philadelphia, Pa. Victim of eye strain
and other eye weaknesses, and those who
wear glasses, will be glad to know that
according to Dr. Lewis there is real hope
and help for them. Many whose eyes
were failing say they have had their eyes
restored by this remarkable prescription
and many who once wore glasses say
they have thrown them away. One man
says, after using it : "I was almost blind.
Could not see to read at all. Now I can
read everything without my glasses and
my eyes do not hurt any more. At night
they would pain dreadfully. Now they
feel fine all the time. It was like a
miracle to me. A lady who used it say :
"The atinosnhere seemed ha.y with or
without glasses, but after using this pre-
gcriptio-for 15 dayg everything seems
eiear I cun rend even tine print with-
out glasses. Another who useu it says
"I was bothered with eye strain caused
by overworked, tired eyes which induced
fierce headache. I have worn glasses for
several years both for distance und work,
and without them 1 could nut read my
own name on an envelope or the type
writing on the machine before me. 1 can
do both now and have discarded my long
distance glasses altogether. I euu count
the fluttering leave on the trees nenms
the street now, which for several years
have looked like a dim green blur to me.
I cannot expreg my joy at what it has
done for me." .

Hanford, Cal., April 4. The live
of four men were claimed here today
when L. T. Denny, aged 63, prom-cent
rancher, in an insane f n ny ran amuck
in the downtown district and after
murdering three men and threatening
the life of another, was himself shot
down by City Marshil W. J. Hmes.
In rapid succession Benny shot down
E. T. (sper, prominent attorney, W.

about to shoot L. Wbitcley, who ac
costed him in the court house, when
Superior Judge Short intervened and
saved Whitcley's life.

pelled Denny to the deed. Keeentiy
Denny purchased a tractor from the
Yuba company and later expressed di
satiataction with it and refused to pay
the bill when presented to htm.
The shooting began in the office Of
Cosper, where Cosper, Wiley and John
G. Covert, Denny 'g attorney, were in
conference. While tho HJia-ussion was
in progress Ienny suddenly entered,
i-arying a revolver. Without a word Of
parley, Denny opened fire. The first
bullet killed Cosper and the second
ended Wiley' life. While the shooting
was in progress, Covert and a girl
stenographer attempted to escape and
the girl in her excitement fell down
stairs and broke her leg.
Kmerging from Cosper' Offiee. Den

block, and into the court room of Jus
tice Meadows. Before Meadow eourt
utter a Ford. Dennv shot him down.
Meadow had not been involved in any
way-in the -litigation over Denny's trae
tor and-the madman' reason for kill
ing him is not known.
Denny has had a reputation as ,a
"bud man'' anij on -several occasion
in the past has threatened to "get ;a
