his great offensive. When he is there will be something
doing that will give the world a thrill.
In addressing an audience of ship yard employes at
Aberdeen, Washington, Saturday, Mr. Sohwab, among
other things, said that at the great ship yard at Hog Is
land on August first a 9,000 ton steel ship would be
launched and after that a similar ship would be sent into
the water every day. In round numbers this mans about
a quarter of a million tons a month, or almost as much
as the submarines have sunk monthly for the past year.
He also promises that during the next year this country
will launch at least 10,000,000 tons of ships. If this can
be accomplished the present ship shortage will be steadily
decreased, for the sinkings now will not equal the new tonnage.

The government has called on the citizens during the
last year, or will have done so when the next Liberty loan
is floated, for above $12,000,000,000. Thii is a tremendous ;
sum, but it is only half of what we must expect to put up
' next year, if the war continues, and for that matter even
should it end by the middle of next summer. We are in
the war to win, and' no matter what the cost, win we
must. It is inconceivable to even try to think of any
peace that is rot dictated by the allies, for any other is
a defeat. Any other leaves the world subject to a repeti

militarists of the central powers find themselves in a po

have been a far greater power than the control of the

along this line, and at what time madness will again pos

will ccmpel peace or place those who would break it where
they will be harmless. 'This means that we should pre
pare now for the demands that will be made on us, and
each be ready t omeet those demands. The annual income
of all the people in the year 1912 was thirty billion dol

Hindenburg's army is in a pretty dangerous position,
owing to the allies dominating his lines of communica
tion. He must either advance and break through the al
lied lines, or withdraw his forces, and this at probably
great cost in men. In either case some of the fiercest
fighting of the war seems inevitable. Every mile of ad
vance by the forces near Soissons multiplies his danger,
and this is what has caused the sending of his reserves
to stop this advance at all hazards.
The weather clerk apparently wants to send a show

CHANCELLOR WASTING WORDS.

away, i gira my weii Known loins ana say, "t arewen, lona
wife and loving aunt! The time has come to gallivant.
The sawbones tells me I must walk for sixty minutes by
the clock; so I must leave my dear abode, and push mjfeelf
along the road, must climb the hill and thread
the dell-farewell, old girls, a long farewell!" Oh, then
I sweat along the lea, and motor cars come up by me;
their drivers say, "Get in and ride! You're wearing out
the countryside; it wawsn't built for such a weightget
in and ride, you old fat skate !" It takes all kinds of for
titude to say, "I'm in tthe walking mood; I guess I will
rot ride today," and groan along my stony way. I walk
three versts and then return to where the household bea
cons burn, and sit me down beneath the trees; I've
sprained my ankles and my knees, while struggling up the
dusty track, and I have stitches, in my back, and shooting
pains around my neck, my lungs and windpipe are a
wreck.. The doctor says that exercise is just the stuff
for hefty guys; if I don't take my daily walk, I'll soon be
planted, says the doc; scared stiff by all his fierce harran
gues, I still saw off the parasangs.
Chancellor Von Hertling's latest peace drive has fall
en flat. In fact it was a trifle flat and considerably stale
when he made it. It is the same old offer to the allies
of a peace made in Germany, with and the kaiser a peace
that can never be made. The ambition-crazed Hohenzol
lern has forced a debt on the world that before the war
ends will be above one hundred and fifty billions of dol
lars and may reach two hundred billion. The world can
not make any peace except such an one as will leave all
the nations in the world in such shape that the peace of
the world cannot be again endangered by any one of
them. This can only be done when the present German
government gives place to one backed by the German
people. Any agreement made by Germany must be back
id by a government of the people, and under which the
people and not the war lords will alone have the right to
declare war. The allies do not desire to dictate to the
German people what kind of a government they shall
have, but they have a right to and will demand that what
ever form it takes, that it will be one that will not consid
er a treaty a "scrap of paper". The fangs of militarism
must be extracted, and if they have to be shot out, so
much the worse for Germany.

Madge Loring called upon ate -ne-af-1
ternoon soon after rhr return. I was not
particularly pleased to see her, but, in
line with my n.?w resolves, I tried to b
particularly gracious. She, too. seemed
more attractive than I ever had found i
her. It flashed across ray mind that ;
perhaps Mrs. Sexton had teen right i
when she told me, a long time before
that our ow attitude toward people
tinged tlueirs toward us, to a great ex
tent that people usuallv responded in
Be that as it may, I certainly found
myself enjoying the call. We chatted
of the peoiplc we know, and what had
been going on socially while George and
I were away. She asked if we had seen
Julia Collins, and wb?u I told her "yes
frequently", (altho I omitted to men
tion anything unpleasant, she said:
"I hear she is to marry Mr. Lombard
a very wealthy Chicago man. Of course
she hasn't announced h.?r engagement
yet, and one never can be sure of Julia
doing anything until after it is done."
I was tempted te tell her of tho man
w.? had seen Mrs. Collins with, that
night in the restaurant, but did not. Af
terward. I was glad I had restrained my
selr. It Julia marriert, l siiould mrvery
much pleased, especially if she would
make her home in Chicago. But it
would have been a very tactless thing
to allow her best friend to discover my
feelings on the subject.
HELEN REPEATS THE GOSSIP.
When G.-orge came in to linncr, I re
peated what Madge had told me. He
didn't seem at all surprised, and only
"It was enevitable that Julia should
make another marriage, and a good one;
she has many sterling, as well as charm
ing qualities. If she marries Lombard,
he is to be congratulated."
A shorj tinio before I should have
been annoyed at the flattering way in
which George had spoken of Mrs. Col
lins. But novr I simply rejoined:
"Mrs. Loring was very funny. She
said that one never could bo sure of
what Julia Collins would do until she
had done it."
"Madge knows her pretty well; and
pr.rhap the uncertainty in which she
k?eps her admirers, is one of Julia's at

tienrgr had said many times.
Was it true that, to keep a man in
uncertaincy, added to one) attractive
ness? Inothcr words, did George mean
that if I kept hiru guessing, he would
on n'ore apt to earg for me? I did not
believe so. I thought it a case that ap
plied to. the "other fellow," not to
him. I would ask him, some time when

Tbe Treatment of Malaria.
It can be said, without qualifica
tion, that medicine is cstieutial in
the treatment of malaria and that
there are certain medicines which
will cure it.
Tho early Spanish invaders of
' this continent found plenty of
Early in the seventeenth century,
Jesuit missionaries in Peru found
that it could bo controlled by a de
coction made from the bark of an
evergreen tree growing on the
Countess Ana of Chinchon, wifa
of the Spanish viceroy, was a suf
ferer from malaria and was cured
by this docoction.
She introduced tho bark Into)
Spain and Linnaeus, and called tho
trees bearing this bark "Cincho
nas." It is also called "Countess
Bark," "Jesuit's Bark," etc, etc.,
and its most Important alkaloid is
Nothing In tho world will destroy
the parasite of malaria like quinine.
There are red and yellow cinchona
barks, and a few years ago differ
ent preparations from these barks
were in general use.
We now hear little of anything
but quinine, which ft the sheet-anchor
in the treatment of malaria.
Not long ago malaria was exten
sively treated, especially in the
Mississippi and Ohio valleys, with
Its only advantages over quinine
were that it was cheaper -mad moro
easily procured, but those advan
tages no longer count It is the
most powerful germicide we have,
but it is intensely poisoaoas, affects
the teeth badly, and has other dis
On the whole. It Is a poor and a
dangerous substitute for quinine.
Arsenic is much used In treating
malaria, and often gives good re
sults. It has recently achieved new
success In the form of Salvarsan or
606. The objection to it is the same
as to mercury, it is a violent corro
sive poison, is eliminated from the
body with difficulty and, when re
tained. may produce destructive
changes in the tissues.
Other malarial medicines which
are used with or without quinine,
are iron, silver, nitro-giycerine,
opium, strychnia," cocaine, camphor,
musk, myrrh, methylone-bluo.-ealine
waters, etc., but they do not have
the powerful effect upon Plasmodia
that quinine has.
A very valuable combination for
the treatment of this disease, which
was for many years a secret
remedy, is known as "Warburg's
Tincture" and contains thirteen dif
ferent drugs, including quinine.
Many other different combina
tions are made and extensively ad
vertised as cures for malaria, but
unless they contain quinine, their
value may be questioned.
Unless the exigencies of the war
should remove quinine from tha
market, or increase Its price far
beyond its present limits, we had
better stick to this invaluable drug
in tho treatment of malaria.
Fortunately, too, there isn't so
much malaria nowadays as there
used to be, at least in this country.
