days aero I was down on my back with the
worst case of rheumatism and 1 began to use
your medicine and in about a week I was on
my feet again. People all over Birmingham
and Ensley were astonished to see me get
well so quick and wanted to know what medi
cine I took. I told them "6-DKOPS" and
every man who has the rheumatism knows
of your medicine and say they will use it. I
am telling every one of the virtue of your
remedy and I am sure it will increase the
sale of same."

Attacks Two Recruits
Camp Lewis, Tacoma, Wash., Nov. 8.
- Xt'Hite the efforts of the medical of
ficers and the prompt quarantine of
companies where the disease has been
discovered, one more case of spinal men
ingitis has developed iu the 20th in
fantry at Camp Lewis.
Eugene Hugdon, of Hantu Maria, Cal.,
the ailing niun, is iu the base hospital
and hopes are held out for his recov
ery. T he companies, L and M, of -which
the stricken men were members, were
isolated yesterday and a guard now pat
rols the premises to prevent the exit of
occupants or the entrance of visitors,
There now are more than 1,750 men
quarantined in Camp Lewis, on account
of three cases or spinal meningitis.
There have been no deaths reported and
the medical officers declare that there
is -no cause whatever for alarm. The
isolated men have all been innoetilnted
against the disease.
Goes to Jury Today
Portland, Or., Nov. 8. After a three
week's trial," the so-called "Canadian
Conspiracy case," will go to the jury
in the federal court late this afternoon.
W. P. Hallowell, W. J. Enrle, Gott

fendants, are alleged to have defraud

There's never been a time iu the his
tory of man when the world has not
divided into pros and cons on some
question of conduct.
We are now settling one of these ques
tions in the fiercest, bloodiest, most
terrible wars that the world has know
and in contemplating the settling of tl:
great problems at issue wo are apt to
pay small attention to the innumerable
smaller disputes that are in 110 way
part of the great issues between natiuns
but which nevertheless are being finally
settled through the developments of
tins great struggle.
We are having the answers to such
questions as "Is .France Decadent f lias
her manhood flooded away on seas of
pleasure T" "Can the United State
raise a real army of fighting men on
short notice?" "Will the new features
oi subsea and air fighting make wa
more fearful and more brief than here
toforef" And all of these answers ar
as we would have them for the good of
the greatest number.
One of the comparatively less impor
tant questions which is now being set
tied once and for all is the question of
the cigarette. There has been two dis
tinct and positive attitudes towards cig
arette smoking; these sides have been
taken by individuals, by communities
by states; the opposition to cigarette
smoking has been vigorously pushed
and yet year by year the consumption
and sales of cigarettes lias increased
and more significant than mere increase
in consumption has been the change iu
the class to which cigarette smokers be
Todav cigarette smoking is the habit
of some of the greatest men among our
lawyers, our doctors, our teachers and
Such a movement indicatos that there
is more involved in the question than
mere partisan opinions, and that this
more is in favor of cigarette smoking,
Now comes the testimony of the men
iu tho trenches; the brave men who
are fishtiuK the greatest war of the
world and then in no doubt, no hesita
tion their cry is "Give us cigarettes;
thev are not luxuries: they are neces
sities, real necessities of every day and
every hour," If the cigarette was only
for tho effeminate; it was unmnniy
this cry from these real men of the
world would not be made.
The cicarette is a necessity. Let us
do all we can to see that the men of the
United States Army are supplied, not
for a week or a month, but 'tor tne en
tire period of this war, with all the
cigarettes they want.
Send your subscription to the Capital
Journal Tobacco Fund and the smokes
will go forward quickly and directly
without delay or expense.

On News From Russia
New YoMrk, Nov. 8. The New York
Evening Sun financial review today
Extreme weakness developed in to
day's stock market on receipt of the
shocking news from Russia. Prices drop
ped from 2 to 8 points with United
States Steel leading in the downward
movement, that issue selling at a new
low record for the year, below 89.
That the broad decline was not more
precipitate was due doubtless to the
fact that Russia has been regarded for
a long time as practically a negligible
factor in the war; that all the allies
must get along somehow without her ac
tive help. Nevertheless, it is not to be
ignored that Russia was at least count
ed on to hold a large German army on

THE BOSS WITH A GROtfCK
' By K. O. B.
In the first place.
Is a short man.
With an awful grouch.
And in tho second place.
"Who was our office boy.
Was a tall boy.
Aur he always smiled.
Aud just -a week.
From the very day.
That he got the job.
Started to- chance.
And the boss would call him.
And he'd say.
In a high soprano.
And "lm coming."
In a deep contralto.
And "Eight away, sir.".
xn a tenor.
And "Here it is, air."
In a bass. ,
And the firt time he did it.
Had an idea.
He was being kidded.
" !$! &"&
And Harold said.
"I can't help it. v
"My voice is changing."
Always after that.
The boss hated him.
And then one day.
A band went by.
With "Over There".
In a blare of brass.
And we all looked out.
And marching troops.
On the street below.
Filled all our hearts.
With whatever it is.
That "Over There."
And our marching troops.
Put into our hearts.
And filled our eyes.
And we all went bacs.
To our work-a-day desks.
Aud the next day came.
And Harold came.
And whispered to me .
He was going to quit.
Aud called the boss.
"A great big stiff."
And I went in.
And told the boss.
That we'd have to find.
And told him way.
And all he said.
Was: "Go get one. s.-..-
And get one.
"With a voice that's set."
In less than a week.
Our Harold Burns.
Came back again.
With a uniform.
And a permanent voice.
And a light in his yes.
Anr his shoulders squared.
And he'd just come in.
To say good-bye.
And was saying it.
When the boss came in.
And a little while later.
The boss' buzzer.
Buzzed its buzz.
And I went in.
And he wanted to know.

Was our old office boy.
And I said he was.
And he asked mo then.
To send him in.
And that dav noon.
