IN THE DAYS OF TRIBULATION
Mayor Mitchell of New York was
praising a commuter who, by continual
complaints, had Improved the railway
service of his district.
"We are apt to call the kicker a
crank anil a nuisance." said Mr. Mitch-
ell, "but it's the kicker who gets things
done for the community."
He smiled and ended:
"They who never kick are but too
apt to become footballs."

WASHINGTON'S RETREAT FROM GREAT MEADOWS.
States, like so many other American
customs and institutions, derived its
source from the mother land "
To strengthen the bond of friend-
ship now existing between England
and America it is suggested that lec-
tureships at the principal universities
of both countries be established, peace
centennial prizes offered for essays on
Anglo-American relations, and, per-
haps most important of all, that the
school readers and histories of the
two nations be revised so as to give
the children on both sides of the At-
lantic a more just idea of their cou-
sins across seas.
HER GREAT ENEMY

IN England they are already talking
and planning for a great .jubilee to
celebrate a century of peace between
the United States aud Great Britain.
This hundred years of peace will be
rounded out Christmas eve, 1914,
which will be the one hundredth anni-
versary of the signing of the Treaty
of Ghent—the pact which ended the
War of 1812.
The peace celebration will be a
three-sided affair, in which the United
States, Great Britain and Canada will

take part. Various tentative plans
have been suggested as fitting for the
occasion. Earl Grey of tho British
ministry believes that it would be a
good plan to unveil a statue of George
Washington in Westminster Abbey
"as a testimony to our ungrudging
and generous recognition of the influ-
ence for good exerted on successive
generations of the British as well as
the American people by the example
of his splendid qualities."
"The lamp of his character"—this
is the part of a speech made by the
earl and received with cheers by a
British audience—"the lamp of his
character has been a beacon which
for nearly 150 years has enabled
struggling humanity to steer through
the darkness to a nobler and a higher
life, and for this reason we think it is
only right that we should make use
of the opportunity provided by the ap-
proaching centennial to do his mem-
ory honor on British soil."
Members of the committee which
has charge of the celebration in Eng-
land have also completed the pur-
chase of Suigrave Manor, the ances-
tral home of the Washington family
in England. It Is proposed to con-
vert this into a sort of Washington

SALE OF WASHINGTON RELICS
Hair Seems to Be Declining in Price.
But Letter Commands a High
Coincidentally, from London and
New York, there came to light two
curious items of Americana, both con-
cerning souvenirs of George Wash-
ington's administration as first presi-
dent of the United States. It appears
that the famous general's hair is de-
clining in price, while one of his let-
ters is selling at a high figure.
The hair, a lock which is asserted
upon oath to be one clipped from the
head of Washington by one of the pall-
bearers at his funeral, and which sold
last year at auction for $380, was dis-
posed of at a sale of Americana here
recently for $100.
At the same time in London a letter
written by Washington on the day aft-
er his election as the first president of
this country was sold for $900. The
letter is one to Samuel Powell, dated
February 5, 1789.
The letter was never published. In
It Washington refers to George III.'s
first attack of madness, saying, "Be
the cause of the British king's insan-
ity what it may, his situation (if
alive) merits commiseration.'

BIG EATERS HAVE BAD
KIDNEYS AND BACKACHE
Take a Glass of Salts at Once If Your
Back Is Hurting or Kidneys and
Bladder Trouble You.
The American men and women must
guard constantly against Kidney trou-
ble, because we eat too much and all
our food is rich. Our blood is filled
with uric acid which the kidneys
strive to filter out, they weaken from
overwork, become sluggish; the elimi-
native tissues dog and the result is
kidney trouble, bladder weakness and
a general decline in health.
When your kidneys feel like lumps
of lead; your back hurts or the urine
is cloudy, full of sediment or you are
obliged to seek relief two or three
times during the night; if you suffer
with sick headache or dizzy, nervous
spells, acid stomach, or you have rheu-
matism when the weather is bad, get
from your pharmacist about four
ounces of Jad Salts; take a table-
spoonful in a glass of water before
breakfast for a few days and your kid-
j neys will then act fine. This famous
j salts is made from the acid of grapes
I and lemon juice, combined with lithia,
| and has been used for generations to
flush and stimulate clogged kidneys;
to neutralize the acids in the urine so
it no longer is a source of irritation,
thus ending bladder disorders.
Jad Salts is inexpensive; cannot in-
jure, makes a delightful effervescent
lithla-water beverage, and belongs in
every home, because nobody can make
a mistake by having a good kidney

truth that greatness is an indefinable
quality. He has been exalted beyond
the topmost heights of heroism and

untempered panegyrics into captions
and hypercritical censure. Biography
in one mood has made Washington lit-

other has hardly given his substance

mysterious element in his character,
which so many historians have tried
to penetrate, that testifies Washing-

GRANDMA USED SAGE TEA
TO DARKEN HER GRAY HAIR
She Made Up a Mixture of Sage Tea
and Sulphur to Bring Back Color,
Almost everyone knows that Sapn
Tea and Sulphur, properly compound-
ed, brings back the natural color and
j lustre to the hair when faded, streaked
or gray; also ends dandruff, itching
scalp and stops falling hair. Years
ago the only way to get this mixture
was to make it at home, which is
mussy and troublesome. Nowadays,
by asking at any store for "Wyeths
Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy," you
will get a large bottle of this famous
old recipe for about 50 cents.
Don't stay gray! Try it! No one
can possibly tell that you darkened
your hair, as it does it so naturally
and evenly. You dampen a sponge or
soft brush with it and draw this
through your hair, taking one small
strand at a time, by morning the gray
hair disappears, arid after another ap-
plication or two. your hair becomes
beautifully dark, thick and glossy. Adv.

His Table Manners.
"The charity worker," says one of
them, "is always learning. We can
learn much from the destitute. Thus,
apropos of the affectation of some of
our table etiquette, 1 once heard a
ragged little chap at a school treat
say, as he held a chicken leg in one
fist and a hot potato in the other:
"The trouble about table manners
Is that they was invented by people
who was never very hungry."
