A CHANGE OF OPINION.
Sergeant Brown who brought 159 prisoners back to
the American lines has perhaps set the record, which
heretofore was held by another American with four or
five dozen to his credit. The puzzle to solve is how can
one man surround 159.
The dispatches Thursday stated Hindenburg is timid
and irresolute. Considering the fact that he has died or
been killed several times within the past six weeks this
condition is quite a natural one.
Baron Burian, the Austro-Hungarian foreign minis
ter in his recent peace talk said among other things that
his government "regards the war as senseless and pur
poseless bloodshed", and that "it might be ended when
the allies again manifest feelings of humanity." Ihe bar
on is partly right. However his country did not consider
it "senseless and purposeless bloodshed," when it clemand-
ed of Serbia that it should turn over to Austria the trial
and punishment of the assassins of the crown prince. It
has only come to the conclusion it is senseless bloodshed
since it sees the handwriting on the wall and knows that
it is doomed to defeat. It started the trouble and will
have to'abide by the results, one of which will be the plac
ing of itself in condition to make a treaty of peace which
will have the people behind it, and which will not be con
sidered a scrap of paper. Another will be the getting out
of those countries she with the help of Germany has over
run, and doing something toward repairing the wrongs
she has inflicted upon them.
' This Yankee nation is a queer one at best. For in
stance, now that our young fellows have got interested
in the war pastime, it is not quite certain that it would
not be a popular idea to make Hun hunting the perman
ent national sport. It is probably a little more dangerous
than football, safer than automobile racing, and more ex
citing than baseball. Most of the boys seem to regard the
whole as a big sport adventure and seem more anxious
to out-do each other in gathering souvenirs of the battle
field for the iolks back home than anything else. Still
down at bedrock they know that they are offering their
lives on the altar of libertyand are glad to do it.
The opinion of the Prussian militarists as to the fight
ing qualities of the Americans have no doubt changed con
siderably within the past 48 hours, and greater changes
are in store for them. The Americans have fought their
first really big battle, and they showed the confidence of
their people was not misplaced, by sweeping everything
before them. The greatest trouble so far with the boys is
that they "want to keep going while the going is good,"
and that is the kind of going they provide for themselves.
The completion of the bridge and the celebration of
.ing qualitis of the Amercans have no doubt changed con
will have the time to take part. The harvest will be over
and the fall crops and prunes not ready to gather.. This
should help make it what it really is, an event in the his
tory of this and Folk counties.

George wa very busy the next two
days, I spent my time shopping and j
entertaining myself at best I could.
Mrs. Babcock hiached with me and
we went to a matinee. I liked her bet
ter each time I saw her, and enjoyed
being with her, even tho she was so
The night before we left for home,
we dined with, them again. As we were
dressiug, George aaid to zue:
"I haven't secured Babcock 'g sig
nature yet, altho I think he is suro to
come into the business. But tonujht
will settle it. They are already Inclin
ed to like you so try and be of further
help to me bv your actions tonight." .
1 made no reply. I felt pleased that
I ould be of help .to George, but I
resented the implication that 1 might
do something to spoil the good impres
sion I had amide. I would let him 8ee
that I was clever enough, at least, to
hold what I had obtained.
We had a wonderful time, and an
other delightful dinner. Mns. Babcock
asked far more music, and we really
spent a delightful evening, altho, to
my surprise, business was not mention
ed. But just as George sipoke of going,

cuse he -wa9 really tired, himself

may as well sign that paper tonight.

I couldn't help a glad thrill as I
turned to Mrs. Babcock, who was smil
ing at me.
When we left, it was with a feeling
that I had made two very dear friends.
And I was very happy when George

reached the hotel. George claimed to
be thirsty. The orchestra was still play
ing, so 1 offered no objections.
' ' We 'vo only a few minute before
they close," George said impatiently,
beckoning a waiter.
Just then I heard some lo-ud talk
ing, and turned1 to see the cause- At
a table near us, sat Julia Collins: and
a large, ratheT coarse looking man who
evidently had been drinking. He was
trying to make Mrs. Collins take
glass of champagne, which she had ev
idently been refusing. Ao one was pay
ing particular attention, bocause of
tho nearness of closing time and their
desire to have ithoir orders filled. Hut
I was interested. It was something new
to see Julia Collins embarrassed, us
she evidently was. I could not help a
little thrill of lev as 1 looked at her
escort red, flushed, noisy, and persist
ent then at George, who was cool,
self possessed, and handsome.
George heard an exclajiiulion, turn

DEATH OF E. M. MTLLES
A wave of regret swept over the
city Friday evening when it became
known that P. M. Miller had passed
away at 8:15. No man was better
known in this eectlon . than was
"Frant" Miller, whose beautiful farm
home lies just across the Sautinm
from Jefferson, and where thousands
have enjoyed the hospitality of its
late owner, for he had the generous
heart of the true pioneer and the latch
string was alwaye out,
- Francis M. Miller was born in 1842,
near Gialesburg. Illinois, roming .with
hie parents ta Oregon in 1850, locating
on the farm where C9 years of his life
were passed. Hero he grew to man
hood, working hard and enjoying the
esteem of all, honest and liberal in
his dealings and raipidly acquiring the
competence to which he was justly en
titled. In tho early 10 'a ho was united
in marriage to Miss Nancy Bowman,
who, togethor with two children, A. A.
Miller and Mrs. Nora Holt,, both of
Jeffeisou, and a foster daughter, Mrs.
Nanna Miller Looney, near this city,
survive him. No man was more true te
his friends than was F. M. Miller, and1
he had a largo number of them. He
never refused aid to a person whom he
deemed deserving and many owe their
succoss to help extended by him, A
couplo 'of yearB ago ho turned over
tha active management of his fine
farm to his grand sons and moved te
Jefferson, but still kept a close run of,
farm matters. For some months he has
known that ithe end was approaching,
but did not eeem to caro. Ho said he
had lived his allotted time and did
not fear the transition. A post mortem
proved that his death was due to
tumor in the stomach, frcim which he

The greatj Importance of the thy

that, when removed from animals,
such animals become stunted and
deformed and do not mature nor

medical and surgical measures,
good results having been obtained
by each method.
The plan of treatment with many
doctors Is medical as long as this
appears to be of any benefit, after

A serum has been prepared by in
jecting solutions of human thyroid
tissue into sheep, removing the
serum subsequently from the blood
of the animals so treated.
It has been tried in thousands of

as entirely cured by sheep serum
or other medicinal means, while
