Hughes a group of questions for his consideration and for his answer. The letter sent Mr. Hughes by these distinguished citizens contains the following extracts: "Mr. Wilson's beliefs have been expressed in law and He has in declared policies. made an open record by which he may be judged. Wise choice is not possible unless you yourself made equally specific stata-meof purposes and convictions. Thirty-eight nt Cure for Cholera Morbus. "When our little boy, now seven years old, was a baby he was cured of cholera morbus by Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diaarhoea Remedy," writes Mrs. Sidney Simmons, Fair Haven, N. Y.

Honesty and patrotism demands that you put yourself on record in such manner as to permitt people to judge you as they are now able to judge President Wilson. For example: We agree with you that it is a "critical period," by far too critical indeed for candidates to talk in terms of office seeking rather than in the simple, earn; est language of definite Americanism. about the exercise and extent of such influence in national politics? Would you repeal the Federal Trade Commission Act, the Federal Reserve System and the Rural Credit and good road bill? Are you for or againstf the tariff commission bill which the United States Chamber of Commerce, representing the business men of the nation, has endorsed? Would you ignore the findings of this tarift commission and re peal the act creating it? Why didn't the Republican party reform the currency and give the nation a sound banking system when it was in power? Why didn't the Republican party reform the currency and give the nation a sound system when it was in power? Why didn't the Republican party establish a rural credit system for the benefit of the farmers? Has prosperity broken all record or hasn't it?

A tramp asked for a free drink in a saloon. The request was granted, and when in the act of drinking the proffered beverage one of the young men present exclaimed: "Stop! Make us a speech. It is poor liquor that doein't loosen ' a man's tongue. The tramp hastily swallowed the drink, and as the rich liquor coursed through his blood he straightened himself and stood before them with a grace and dignity that all his dirt and rags could not obscure. "Gentlemen," he said, "I look tonight at you and myself, and it seems to me I look upon the picture of my lost manhood. This bloated face was once young and handsome like yours. This shambling figure once was as proud as yours, a man in the world of men, I, too, once had a home, friends and position. I had a wife as beautiful as anjartist's dream and 1 dropped the priceless pearl of her honor and respect in the wine cup, and, Cleopatralike, saw it dissolve and quaffed it down in the brimming draught. I had children as sweet as the flowers of spring, and saw them fade and die under the blighted curse of a drunken father. 1 had a home where love lit the flames upon the altar, and ministered before it, and I put out the holy fire and darkness and desolation reigned in its stead. I had aspirations and ambition that soared as high as the morning star; I broke and bruised their beautiful wings and at last strangled them that I might, hear their cries no more. Today I am a husband without a wife, a father without a child, a tramp witout a home to call his own, a man in whom every good impulse is dead, and all swallowed up in the maelstorm of drinu."

When a man loves life throws out his chest, pulls his cigar from between smliing lips, and says, "I feel great I can eat anything," he has struck the keynote of content and is envied by his fellows. But when that same man, only a short time before, is all nervous, and can't trust his stomach to accept even the plainest fare, and then comes back into his own, he is so happy that he wants to make life better for the "other fellows" who suffer as he once did. It is just this feeling that has prompted many thousands of men and women throughout the United States to tell of the benefits they have derived from Tanlac, the great reconstructive tonic, invigorant, appetizer and rebuilder of torn down tissues. Tanlac appeals to the best people everywhere. Nowhere in the history of proprietary medicines has there been found a preparation that has eqaalled Tanlac's record for instant popularity. Although this now famous Master Medicine has been on the market only a trifle over a year, two millions of bottles have already been sold.

WAR SITUATION forces have The Entente general opened a offensive against the forces of the Central powers, now in progress in every theater of the world war. Gen.

London announces the most notable gain in some days in the Guillemont region. After withstanding counter attacks, the troops of Gen, Haig again assaulted the German trenches and captured 200 to 600 yards along a front of two miles. Fighting took place on both sides of the Meuse, the Germans attacking to the. left and the French on the right bank.

The use of the huge new locomotives and the long and heavy trains, against which the Brotherhoods of freight trainmen, who are asking an enormous Increase in wages, protest so vigorously, seems to have resulted in a rapid decrease in accidents to railroad employees, and a decided increase in their safety. The number of railway employees killed In service diminished from G20 in 1911 to 452 in 1914, and the number of Injured from 6601 to 4823. To pursue a dispute as to hours and wages on the theory that are entitled to all that can be forced from employers and extorted from the people by employers Is not the best way to promote the permanent welfare of labor. New York World. ; Photo by American Preos Associations CWO TURKISH PBINCE3 SENT BY SUIiTAB TO JOIN OEBttAX CffiNEBAIi SXAOT. Washington, D. C Though farmers usually feel little interest in railway labor disputes and are disposed to think that such troubles are remote from them and cannot touch them directly. In the pending question between the Brotherhoods of freight trainmen and the railways of the country the railways evidently 'are making special effort to inform the farmers on the points involved and to enlist their attention. It is argued by the railroad managers that the final disposition of the dispute will be made by public senti-i ment. They reason that the farmer, when it comes to a final "showdown," really controls not only the political power but the sentiment of nearly all the states. Therefore, they are trying to appeal to his horse sense. They are sending out a good deal of literature directed especially to the farmers probably the first time such a course has been taken in any great laboi' struggle. They say they are convinced of the general public's confidence in the horse sense, the insight and the fairness of the American farmer, and that, therefore, his influence must be powerful. High Wages Now Paid They are dwelling especially on the argument that the freight trainmen already are the highest paid laborers in the world. They submit figures to show that in many instances freight train employees earn from $75.00 a month for the trainmen, or "brake-man- " as they used to be called, to $250.00 a month for engineers, work-ini- g from 22 to 25 days a month. They are asking farmers to inquire into the facts and convince themselves that most of the talk of ex cessive hours of labor on railways is empty and contradicted by the facts. More than sixteen hours of continuous work in railway service is for- ' hidden by law. of The instances men kept on duty so long as sixeen hours are a very small fractional percentage of the total employment; they become less every year, and al- most invariably are due to accident or some unusual weather conditions. The managers of the railway companies point out that the farmer himself accustomed to from twelve to fourteen hours a day of steady work rarely earns in a year as much cash money as a trainman on tfuty from ten to twelve hours, and never continuously at work, can earn, resting d to from labor from of his time. In the south it is a familiar maxim that "it takes thirteen mouths to make a cotton crop." The man who raises ten bales of cotton gets for it from $450.00 to $500.00, and from this must pay his fertilizer bills and labor. The trainmen are said to average $800.00 a year, this being the estimate of the Brotherhood leaders themselves, and the engineers to $2,500.00 a draw from $1,500.00 year, the conductors and firemen earning wages between those of the trainmen and engineers. Farmer Vitally Interested Aside from the question of justice, it is pointed out that the farmer's direct interest in the matter is that his welfare demands freight traffic adequate to the needs of the country, and that whatever injures the railroads or hampers their operation or prevents their development is a direct injury to him. If the trouble should develop a general strike of the freight train employees, resulting in a tie-u- p of traffic, the farmer would he unable to ship out what he raises op to get in what he wants. He will be asked to consider whether the railroads should be crippled by being compelled to pay 25 per cent increase in wages to men already receiving far more than the average prosperous farmer, with resulting injury to the farmer himself and if the railroads are compelled to grant the increase and have to raise their freight rates, the farmer will have to pay a big part of the increase.

THE ADAIR COUNTY NEWS many are already announcing for county offices to be filled in 1917, when every effort should be concentrated on securing votes for Wilson and the Democratic nominees for Congress. As the Louisville Times aptly says, this is no time for such announcements and aspirants for honors in 1917 should not be permitted to canvass their strength when a strong pull together is needed for the work in hand. Such entries for offices to be filled in 1917 is bound to breed factionalism and discord, when it is most important that these should be eliminated until the National Election is over. When he was Secretary of ' tState, Mr. Bryan wrote a letter .o the Receiver of Customs at iSanto Domingo inquiring as to position could be obtained "for "deserving Democrats."
