shuts up the bronchial tubes and
prevents air from moving in and

i Miners, potters, grinders, and
millers suffer from this disease,
their tubes becoming choked with
dust while at their work.
Those who have troub'ea with

Alien women, from the age of 14
years up, will soon be required to reg
ister. Notices will soon be posted and
those who are alien are supposed to get
their information either from tho post
a notices or from the newspapers.
Iu Salem, registration will be at the

When the order is issued, according

Price movrtmeuts in today's stock
market demonstrated dearly enough
that the vigorous advaoc-A of the pnst
fortnight or more had temporarily com
to a halt and that the market was en
tering into a period of adjustment, the
logical sequence in such a broad tipwarj
swing. Tlij general list receded irregu
larly. There were moments of strength,
but early afternoon declines ranged
from ouo to throe points.
This was attributublo not so much
to definite liquidation as to further sell
ing for the short account and realizing
sales with an eye to participation in
the buying again when signs of a re
vival should come.
With the accumulated orders in tho
industrial list executed, stocks in that
class began to give way. The rails,
