A TIMELY VISIT The visit of the Mexican editors to the United States is one of the most encouraging steps toward a mutual understanding between the two peoples. The intelligent Mexican knew better, but German propaganda made, the peons believe the Americans were afraid of them, and this vas the reason the Americans would not fight them, though so many provocations were given. The visiting .editors will return home with not only a true conception of America's feeling toward their country but with a deep appreciation of the forbearance it has shown in refusing to go to war with them. After seeing the tremendous preparations this country is making for war, and realiz " ing that while refusing the gage of battle tendered her by Mexico, she unhesitating entered irto war accepting the challenge of the most powerful fighting machine the world has ever known. 1 hey realize now now easily America could have crushed Mexico had it so desired, and that it was sympathy for their bandit-ridden condition, their local troubles, their struggle to get their own affairs into livable shape that caused the United States to with draw her troops from Mexican soil so soon as her object, that of preventing lawless raids across the border was accomplished. Our visitors know now that it was not fear that caused this action but a profound respect for a neighbor's rights and property. When they get home and impress on their readers these things which they have learned, our relations with our southern neighbors should be greatly improved, and those of the Germans who have stirred up most the troubles between the countries will be correspondingly decreased. - It is a timely visit and will bear good fruit. ' One reason the kaiser is slow about exchanging prison ers with America or arranging to do so, is that the Amer-. ican prisoners have been so treated that his highness doesj rot care to have the Americans get the facts concerning it lest it stir them to real war madness. Besides German prisoners taken by the Americans f.re being fed up in a wav that will make them regret the day the exchange is made. Naturally the kaiser may hesitate about having these prisoners tell the German soldiers oi the treatment they received. This would have a tendency to make tnem all want to be captured. In the nassinn of "Pitchfork Ben" Tillman, for 24 vears senator from South Carolina, one of the most picturesque figures of modern American politics disap pears. From his entrance into the senate to his last service therein he was the especial advocate of the farm ers, not only of his state but of the entire country. He wa3 a born scrapper and some of the most fiery speeches made in the senate fell from his lips. The farmers of the entire union have lost a sincere friend and an able advo cate in the passing of the South Carolina senator. The motto of the American soldier seems to be "what I get I keep." While our boys have not engaged in any of the greater battles, in every one they have taken part in the same story is repeated What they have under taken they have achieved, and what they have acquired they have held. This kept up will land them in Berlin eventually. It will be but a short time until the more than 500 acres of flax contracted by the governor will be ready for pulling. As there are not men enough left in the prison to finish the governor's wood contracts, the out look for sufficient flax pullers is not encouraging. In the meanwhile there are 80 tons of straw left from the crop of 1916 that have not been retted. The situation in Russia is a delicate one to handle, for the reason that the Kussian people having been betrayed by first their chosen leaders, and next by the Germans with whom they made a peace only to see it violated, have become suspicious of every one. " The bolsheviki are on their last legs and would have been down and out long ago had it not been for the back ing of the German armies. However there is a ray of hope coming from Siberia, where the two governments have united and are determined to resist the further en croachments of Germany. The Don Cossacks are in full accord and sympathy with them, and it is possible that by another year the new government will be able to put up such resistance as will cause the kaiser much trouble. It is undoubtedly true that if any showing of strength can be made by the new Siberian government that will give the peasants of Russia a reasonable hope of throwing off the German yoke which is galling their shoulders so severely just now, that they will join hands with their Siberian brethren and put up a fight again. Ukraine has had an entire sufficiency of a German-made peace, and wm aiso join in against me uermans once they see a chance of winning their liberty again. Apparently the final result depends largely on whether there is in Russia a man strong enough to control the situation, and who can get in command. This country wants to help Russia but is so far unable to solve the puzzling question of how to do it. If the new Siberian government would ask the United States to help it, this difficulty would vanish. The Russian proletariat has confidence in the United States, and it is because it has that it is so difficult to deal with it. We do not want to do anything that will destroy that confidence. Given a government indorsed by the people the solutuion would be easy, and the United States would help with both men and mofiey. The allies would stand solidly behind us in any thing we can do to solve the problem and assist in putting Russia on her feet again. -The president in his speech today, it is claimed, will outline America's position not only as to Russia but as to all the nations of the earth. It is hoped the president, usually so clear and so correct in interpreting the heart beats of the world, may be able to show Russia the way out of her difficulties. t The Woman Who Changed ; By JANE PHELPS f THE NEW PATH. Every bomb dropped in a German town is an advertise ment in understandable language even for a Hun, that the medicine he has been prescribing for his enemies Is of a land far from pleasant to take. This fact should be borne home to them by giving every town possible a taste of the dope. LADD & BUSH, Bankers' ALL THE THIRD LIBERTY BONDS ARE NOW HERE.

If they could be induced to adjourn "for tne penoa oi the war" and leave the president a free hand they would be doing a truly patriotic act. The civilized world is helping Uncle Sam celebrate his birthday anniversary. Even England is. shariner in the rejoicing, and well she may, for the big boy left her family long ago has come back to help the old folks and to protect them against the deadly foe. About every business in the city is closed today except ;ne newspapers, which the people demand shall furnish them the news daily. They want to know about the war no matter what else is taken from the daily menu. The governor was not satisfied until he was given full control of the prison, and now that he has it he is in the same condition as "Meddlesome Mattie" who cried for her grandmother's snuff boxuntil she got it. - a All the peoples of the world, except the German, Aus trians and Turks, are celebrating the American 4th of July today in good, old-fashioned stvle. Rippling Rhymes by Walt Mason ft - SUMMER WEATHER . The days are growing hotter, although they're hot enough, and as I ply my swatter l m leeling pretty tough. The , solar rays are pelting, from heat there's no surcease, and I am slowly melting' and swimming in my grease. I overhaul the verses I wrote four months ago, and marvel at the curses I handed sleet and snow. Oh, I was surely nutty, when I such language tossed; his head is stuffed with putty, who rails at snow and frost. For winter's wholesome J rigors are eood for man and beast:, there jiMfmrj are no fues an(j chiggers 0n human limbs to feast Men sit before their heaters, while loud the blizzard rants, and there are no moskeeters. no worms or bugs or ants. From germproof Athabasca the wholesome breezes blow; from ocean washed Alaska comes down the healthful snow. And yet when winter' flinging its blessings all around, when we should all be singingK we raise a doleful sound. Because some ears are frosted, because a nose is peeled, the language is exhairt- ed, so biteny we ve spieled. The days are growing hotte , and hotter still, my friends; as to my tasks I totter, the mercury ascends. The flies, in countless legions, are roost ing on my dome, and in the arctic regions I fain woi'd build my home. ' fit CHAPTER CXXXXI. More than ever, was I anxious to please my husband to gain that poise antl command of myself he considered so necessary. My little affair with Mor ton Gray had shown me, perhaps more plairlv than, anything else possibly could, tlat I loved my husband too well to be happy v.tb. anyone else, or happy if I were uitrily away from him. Yet I knew -I never should be really content and happy until he ceased finding fault ith me, or, rather, until I had made niyv.if over so that there would be no room for eriticism. I was not very well; that, too, made it harder to bear his caustic remarks. Realizing Julia 'Collins' talk on tho piazTa of the Xarraganset hotel, I had said nothing to George, but had gone to a doctor vtljjut letting hiui know my errand. A'liat he told me f lightened me.

But my husband won't" then I stoped. I had almost mrtde the i hy&icinn my confident. Al most let him sec that my fear of having children was my fear that by doing so I should lose my husband. He 11 be ion a of them, all right, when they are his own," the doctor niltly answered. Then he patted mv shoulder kindly. ' lou are ncrvou and upset. I'll give you eomothing 'to steady you.

George YYA8 fastidious to an extreme. Ho was most particular as to mv looks; he always had said he ad mired by girlish slenderness and that it was the reason my clothes looked so well on me. All that it would mean to have him feel ashamed of me, rushed over mc and I threw myself on tho bed in a perfect agony of dread, all my joy gone in the thought that I should lose my husband's love.

(Tomorrow U-orge Is Worried) Shortage of Water Will Cause Loss of Crops The loss of erops by farmers on Powder Kver and Burnt River in Bak er County, due to shortage of water for irrigation, has caused strong sentiment for the construction of reservoirs, ac cording to John H. Lewis, who has just returned from an Inspection of the district. Vpon invitation of Henry E. Tweed, county agent; he conferred with inter ested parties at Unity and Baker, where committees were appointed to consider the immediate formation of ir rigation districts.

Advertising Clubs Want Blue Sky Laws The Associated Advertising Clubs of tho World are making a campaign for the enactment of "blue sky" laws in states which do not now have them as a means of curbing oil promotion com panies end other concerns which are reported to be fleecing the public out of thousands Of dollars. A copy of a bulletin issued by tho clubs has been received by Corpora tion Commissioner Schulderman. It points cvt that while a Hue sky law is not a guarantee against fraudulent stocks, it is a protection, and the com panies which have worthless stocks to sell aro doing their biggeBt business in states which do not have such laws. Tho state of Oklahoma and Colorado are cited as illustration of tho urgent need of blue sky laws.

When conditions are favorable the effused blood becomes clotted, the opening In the ruptured vessel . is sealed with a clot, and repair at once begins the clot shrinking and its pressure upon the brain di minishing. As the result of this pressure, nerve cells 5nd fibers are de stroyed; they cannot be restored, and the parts controlled by them will be damaged permanently. When there has been no destruc tion of these Important structures, improvement will begin as soon as the pressure Is relieved. Perhaps the clot will press upon tho centers which co trol speech; In that case, the faculty of speech will be impaired, the condition be ing known as "aphasia," the patient knowing what he wants to say, but not being able to say It, or to speak distinctly. , In most cases there Is paralysis of the arm and leg on the side of the body, opposite that on which the hemorrhage occurred, the only parts which can be moved volun tarily being the fingers and toes. One may also lose feeling or sensation, and perhaps sight, hear ing, taste or smell. Difficulty In swallowing Is an Im portant symptom due to paralysis of tha muscles of the throat The kidneys may be diseased, and thk disease may be one of the cau.fes leading to the apoplexy. If conditions are favorable, tha bad svmptoms will gradually clear up the sense of feeling usually re turning first, and, by degrees, the powr of motion. In the aged, complete power of motion may never be regained; con trol of speech may be obtained, but somi words may permanently be difficult of enunciation. If the conditions are unfavorable, the paralysis will continue, the pa tient becoming bed-ridden, the ex tremities swelling, the mind be coming weak, and death coming from exhaustion or some compli cating disease, or from another hemorrhage. Apoplexy is common In certain families, especially when there art. bad arteries and bad kidneys. This tendency is Increased by over-exertion, straining, profound emotion, coughing, injuries, or any thing that increases blood pres sure. People who have had diseased ar teries and have had one apoplexy, must lead a simple, temperate life, sleep as much aa possible, avoid excitement, Indigestion, and consti pation, and they must do every thing they can to keep down blood pressure. j Treatment by means of drugs and by surgical measures Is more hope ful than used to be the case, and now-a-days those who have apo plexy are frequently able to live comfortably for years after their first attack. Pasteur did his most useful work after a very severe apoplexy. It Is desirable, therefore, that suf ferers with this disease should al ways look on the bright side of life and hope for as large a degre as possible of usefulness and comfort. R. A. 0.
