THE CALL OF THE SEA.
Once more the American people are a sea-faring na
tion. A great maritime revival has come. We are now
in it early stages. Already we have far more ships at sea
than ever before. We have more than 700 others now
building in American yards. - , :
We have millions of tons besides awaiting construc
tion as soon as the ways are free. The ambitjous plan
entered upon by the Emergency Fleet Corporation is be
ing carried out regardless of the approach of peace, be
cause the government is certain that we can find a good
,use for all the vessels we produce.
There is ample opportunity, then, for every American
lad with'the lure of salt water in his blood. The call of
the sea mingles with the call of our country. The new
ships clamor for sailors to man them. Orders have gone
forth to rush the recruiting for merchantmen crews in
every section of the country. "We shall want thousands
of men for our fleets," says Chairman Hurley. Their re
cruiting service will train the volunteers and provide them
all with jobs. ' . ' .
The response should be as t enthusiastic and wide
spread as the opportunity "is. great; ; The sailor's life was
always fascinating to the young men of hardy and adven
turous nature. Now it is also profitable, respectable and
patriotic. Ship-board tyranny is a, thing of the past.
Quarters are comfortable, food is wholesome and pay is
good. Moreover, as matters stand, the merchant sailor
is serving his country no less, usually, than the sailor in
PASSING THE BUCK.
The principle occupation in all the enemy countries
just now is what in good American phraseology is term
ed "passing the buck." Every last one of them is trying
to hedge on its war obligations.
; '"We have reformed," they all cry. PSee how we
have changed our governments and our institutions It
was our wicked kings that made war on you and killed
your people and ravaged your countries. We have kick
ed them out. You have nothing against us. We are your
brothers now as indeed, we have always been in spirit."
So they beg to be let off easily in the peace terms.
So they hope to escape paying the penalty for crimes com
mitted and the damage done. ;
They may, indeed, escape the severest penalties for
the deeds committed by them and in their name. They
may avoid death on the battlefield or execution at the bar
of justice. They may escape the devastation of their own
By Walt Mason
When peace has come, that boon elating, and battle
flags are furled, I hope there'll be an end of hating thru
out this warsick world. Let us get mad, if things demand
it, and raise a rumpus great; but anger, as I understand
it, is different from hate. If I am injured by my neighbor,
I lie in wait for him; his swaybacked carcase I belabor,
and rend him limb from limb; but when our little scrap
is ended we are good friends once more, and he, with
sportsmanship that's splendid, slides down my cellar door.
We have no time for foolish hating, we have to do our
chores, that we may both maintain our rating for credit
at the stores. It's hate that keeps the world unsettled,
and makes peace efforts vain; a lot of kings, stallfed and
mettled, have hatred on the brain. They don't get busy
cultivating or pruning growing things; they sit around
their throne rooms hating and cussing other kings. One
reason why I hope the Teuton may meet a crushing fate
is that he's always at us shootin' his talk of deathless hate.
And vainly will the Teut endeavor our friendship to re
gain until he cuts out hate forever, and shows he's safe
and sane. '
country. But they may as well make up their minds that
they cannot escape restoring all that their armies have
stolen, and paying to the last dollar for all the damage
they have done to life and property. . :
"A chief of the bureau of Animal Industry paid his

There will be national peace on earth for the strug

30 MILES TO

Being DeGeved Of Rheuma
tism. Gains 15 Pounds.
"Whon I first started on Tanlac I
was so crippled up with rheumatism
that I had to uso two walking sticks
in order to get about at all. But, after
taking four or five bottles, every pain
was gone, and I have actually gained
fifteen pounds be'sides." ' .f-Ji.
Tho above statement was made by
William Choaio, West Riverside
Ave., Spokane, Wash., recently.
"Rheumatism," he continued, ."was
only one of. many troubles Tanlac re
lieved me of. I had euffeied from a
bad stbuiach for twelve or fifteen
years. 1 eouMn 't cat scarcely anything
but what gas would form und almost
cut off my breath, and bring awfyl
faint weak feelings over me. There was
a terrible hurting in the pit of my
stomach, and if I ventured to eat any
thing except the lightest food it would
almost put me out of commission.
"This was my condition a little over
a year ago ;when I made my mother
and brother over in Iowa a visit. Soon
af tor I got there my troubles got worse,
My kidneys started bothering me, 1
hail awful pains in the small of my
back, and constantly had headache.
Then started in a siege of rheumatism
which I will never forget. I was laid
up for b'x months and was flat on my
back for several weeks hardly able to
.move. It started in my legs, then got
in mv arms and the pain was some
thing" awful,' from the tips of my fin
gers to my toes.
"When 1 did get up I was in such a
bad shape I had to use two ctnes in or
der to get about at all and this is the
fix I whs in when 1 got laniac. I reaa

''No sir! he will bo going in a few
minutes. That's his ear."

when he saw a man leave the shop. He
was shorter than himself, but so well-
groomed, with a manner of such assur

of his name or the obsequious attention
of the carriage man to assure him that
Mandel had at last appeared.
"Ruth's swell boss!" he exclaimed
bitterly as he watched Mandel seat
himself in his car, and give orders to
tne chauffeur. .Lven tho respectful
way the man touched his hat, Briau

and found so much fault with her. .
