No man or woman who eats meat

well-known authority. Meat forms

the waste and poisons from the blood,
then we get sick. Nearly all rheu-

Capital Calling System Is Revamped by Women
tlf V8 HI NOTON—Women In official society circles met here the other day
sv and discussed the national capital's complex calling system with a view
U» evolving a simpler and more satisfactory method of exchange of the formal
call. The meeting was held at the
Congressional club in response to a
call by Mr*. Duncan U. Fletcher, its
Former Ambassador Henry White,
who served on diplomatic missions to
London. Paris. Rome and other Euro-
pean capitals, told of social obligations
as be had observed them abroad.
Among those In attendance were
Mrs. Marshall, wife of the vice-presi-
dent; Mrs. Bryan, wife of the secre-
tary of state; Mrs. White, wife of the
chief justice of the Supreme court, wives of cabinet officers and others.
Mrs. Fletcher voiced the sentiment of those present by declaring the
necessity for a simpler calling system was imperative. Everybody, she said,
rants to return every call that Is made upon them, but there Is a limit of
hours in the day and days in the week.
‘On her first afternoon at home,'' said Mrs. Fletcher, "Mrs. Marshall had a
thousand calls and they have averaged between 300 and 500 each Wednesday
sines. Her sincere effort to return every call has been the comment and
admiration of all Washington society, but how can anybody return in person
several thousand calls In one season? Mrs. Manail’s experience is In greater
or less degree duplicated by every official hostess In Washington.”
The question of simplifying formal calling In Washington has been grow-
ing more acute during the last ten years, but this meeting was the first ah
tempt at simplification.

these days to break into the United States navy as a
plain, ordinary seaman; a stick of dynamite is necessary to get in as an
apprentice or yeoman. The navy department and Its recruiting stations have
"waiting lists” containing hundreds of
names of young, husky youths “hank-
ering" to go to sea.
The full, active membership of the
navy is limited by law to 51,500 men,
and there are that many enlisted men
now on the pay rolls. For the first
time since the Civil war the full quota
of men allowed by law has been en-
The bars as to fitness have not been
let down, and no men with physical
or mental defects have been enlisted,
bnt there has been good advertising. The tales of the cruises and the details
of the chances for obtaining an education, sent out in pamphlet form, have
swelled the ranks so that the bars had to be put up.
The greatest number of monthly enlistments, except In war time, was
made In the last six months since Secretary Daniels began his revolutionary
reforms in the navy.
Perhaps the chief cause for the great Influx of fine, hardy young men into
the naval service In the last few months was the recent Mediterranean cruise
of the great Atlantic fleet.
This cruise was a regular pleasure trip for the young seamen, and It was
Intended that It should be such by the navy department. Long stops were
made at all the principal cities on the Mediterranean, where shore leave was
given. At the different seaports the American sailors were entertained in
lavish style by naval and civic organizations, and in every way shown a gen-
eral good time.
Tales of cruises contained in letters sent back to friends from foreign
ports also fire the imagination of young friends "back home.” For Instance,
tho recruits at the Chicago training station were recently sent overland to
Bremerton, Wash. They were allowed a stop-over at Yellowstone park, and
other interesting places Soon after arriving at Bremerton they were assigned
to the cruiser New Orleans, which sailed for Mexican waters. On Us trip
south the cruiser stopped at San Francisco, where shore leave was given to
the youngsters. Now It is reported that as soon as the Mexican trouble la
settled the New Orleans will sail for the Orient

for Cardui. the woman's tonic,” says
Mrs. Jennie Estes, of this town, "I
honestly believe I would have been In
my grave today. Therefore, I want
to say something good for Cardui, but
I can't begin to say enough.
I was sick abed with womanly trou-
bles, from February until October, and
was in very bad condition. I w»s
treated three or four times a week,
but it did me no good.
I battled between life and death,

Cardui, the woman’s tonic, a trial. I
had no confidence in it, at all, but

well as I ever felt in my life.
I advise all sick and suffering
women to try Cardui. It cured me
when all other medicines failed.”
If you are weak, tired, worn-out, or
suffer from any of the pains peculiar
to weak women, such as headache,
backache, pains in arm, side or limbs,
or any other symptoms of womanly
trouble, you are urged to try Cardui,

“Right here,” said Henry Peck, “is
where the worm is going to turn. I’ve
been submissive long enough.”
“Henry, how dare you talk that way
to me? What do you mean?”
“I’ve let you boss me around and I
haven’t complained," Mr. Peck desper-
ately continued. “1've let you act as
the head of the family; I’ve turned my

HERE has been recently a discussion going on among the army and navy
men on tho increasing scarcity of army horses. Tho army quartermasters,
who have to do with the purchasing of horses for military establishments, say
that there is really an alarming scar-
city of good animals. Of course, It Is
well known that the war department
Is more or less hampered by the fact
thnt congress haH not appropriated
sufficient money to enable the quarter-
master's department to acquire horses
In sufficient number to supply all the
mounted commands. Consequently
there Is n shortage in horses caused
by the distribution of troops on the
border and elsewhere and by the In-
crease of war strength of troops serv-
ing abroad. There are not enough homes now to supply the commands at
If there were to come an emergency calling for a large number of horses
the war department would have great difficulty in getting them. It Is said
that one reason for the scarcity of horses Is the falling off of the product
of those who are raising horses. It is unofficially declared that the increased
use of automobiles has had its Influence on the rearing of horses, despite the
assertions to the contrary.
The motor trucks sIbo seriously affect the market for draft animals, but
that has to do mostly with the mule, so far as the array Is concerned. The
mule will always be a necessity, despite the Improvement which has been
made In the motor trucka. The animal must be used with the troops In the
field. The trucks will be useful for supplying the column In the rear.

"Real lovers of poetry,” said Mr.

“This Judge was recommended by
a poetic friend to read Shelley. The
great man of the law said he sup-

try, and having heard so much of
Shelley, he would try him.

he had waded through a few pages of

IF HAIR IS TURNING
GRAY, USE SAGE TEA
Don't Look Old! Try Grandmother**
Recipe to Darken and Beautify Gray,
Faded, Lifeless Hair.
Grandmother kept her hair beauti-
fully darkened, glossy and abundant
with a brew of Sage Tea and Sulphur.
Whenever her hair fell out or took on
that dull, faded or streaked appear-
ance, this simple mixture was applied
with wonderful effect. By asking at
any drug store for "Wyeth's Sage and
Sulphur Hair Remedy,” you will get a
large bottle of this old-time recipe,
ready to use, for about 50 cents. This
simple mixture can be depended upon
to restore natural color and beauty
to the hair and is splendid for dan-
druff, dry, itchy ecalp and falling hair.
A well-known druggist says every-
body uses Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur,
because it darkens so naturally and
evenly that nobody can tell it has been
applied—It’s so easy to use, too. You
simply dampen a comb or soft brush
and draw it through your hair, taking
one strand at a time. By morning
the gray hair dieappears; after an-
other application or two. It Is re-
stored to its natural color and looks
glossy, Boft and abundant—Adv.
