President Wilson served notice on Congress tonight that he will consent to nothing less than a record vote on the resolutions to warn Americans off the armed ships of European belligerents before he goes on with the German submarine nego- tiations. No compromise' proposition, such as a voto of confidence In the President's foreign policy will be acceptable. Such an action, it is held, might be construed in Berlin as justifying tho opinion that the President lacks tho' support of Congress and his own party In, his demands for a full observance of International law, while Its only purpose would be to afford members of Congress a way to avoid recording their .positions before tbe country on the straight question. N President Wilson made his position clear to Congressional leaders tonight In unequivocal terms, as the climax to' a day of confusion, uncertainty and political maneuvering that mark-- , ed the opening of his first real fight with Congress. If It Is, to emphasize that, the President absolutely refuses to continue the negotiations with Germany Until the attitude of Congress is settled, It was made known that the United States does not consider the latest assurances from Count von" Bernstoi'ff, tho German Ambassador, as broad or as satisfactory as those originally given. No further step will be taken, however, while the President waits on Gongress. Meanwhile the pending Lusltanla agreement wl not bo finally accepted. The whole situation in Congress,, confused by the President's call for a vote, was thrown Into a snarl today when at an early morning conference tho President outlined his position to Chairman Stone and Flood, of the Foreign Affairs Committee.

Ta great interest displayed in the road, bonds voted by Daviess county citizens last June came out In Circuit Court Tuesday when attorneys', irrespective of their connection with the case, took part In the general ar-'- "' gument In the action brought to test the validity of the election and bond.

County Attorn' ey Blrkhead represented the court and Judge W. P. Sandldge, J. 1, Sweeney and others represented members of the court. The effort of the attorneys were directed mainly to getting before the court every angle of the dispute so that when the case finally got to the court of appeals, there would be left no eonten-tatlo- n that It could not pass upon; A demurrer to the petition wa fljed by the defendants, setting up that the petition did not state facia" sufficient to constitute a cause of action.

Tho flro camo originally from Kentucky and the history of how the embers were kept glowing during tho long Journey from tho blue grass to tho then unsettled country beyond the Mississippi forms a most ro-gl- interesting tale. Eighty years ago, in a Kentucky valley, R. D. Duckworth, then a strapping and ambitious young man, decided to migrate. "I hate to leave old Kentucky," he said, "but I must go. There Is ono thing, however, that I will tako with me," he remarked to a group of neighbors who had gathered about tho warm hearth In his father's home to bid him good-b- y "What's that?" some ono asked curiously.

Swinging under tho bee) ot tho wagon was an Iron kettle, carrying tho coal from the parent hearth. This Are Duckworth fed at intervals with great care. Aside from sentiment it was a great convenience, ready at noon or night, or at any stop, to break the gloom and cook the food. Tho fire was carefully watched and never allowed to go out. Tho family was often followed by Indians, but never molested. Having arrived at Missouri, after a long weary march behind the oxteam, they settled In Spring county. Livingston Hill township, Thero they tied tho oxen, unloaded tho children, and leaving tho household goods in tho wagon, for that would be their only hpmo for some time to come, Duckworth took his ax and began to clear a place In tho But before tho family wilderness. did so they did something else. They took down the old kettle from the back of the wagon, put it away against the time when they should want to swing It from the crane on the hearth, and lit from It the big fire that was to be kept until they were under a roof and in front of a real fireplace. Months later a rude cabin was hewed out of the timber of tho farm. They plastered tho cracks with mortar and built a rude stone fireplace. Tho few homely household articles were placed Inside And then they took tho flro which had come all tho way from Kentucky in the old keetlo and had since burnwood ed In logheaps, to tho new-lai- d on tho hearth.

One thing lived on with htm. It was the fire. And as tho old man prepared his simple meals, the corn bread ho had made and eaten from a boy, the salt meat followed by a pipe,-- tho fire seemed so human that It kept him company. There was no danger of its going out. Ho saw to. that. But at last the cabin grew too old, too uncomfortable, and Mett built a new pine housd without a fireplace only a stove. The other day ho moved in. And tor the first tlmo In nearly 80 years the flro on the cabin hearth turned to gray, dead ashes. Mett said he preferred to let the old fire dto with tho old home.

Absence ot "side" has contributed much to the popularity and esteem In which the Prince has been held by all his young associates In the navy, at Oxford and in the army. Once an Osborne cadet asked him "whether it was a great responsibility to be the son of tho Prlnco of Wales. 'I've never thought about It In that way,' said the Prince. 'It's always seem-je- d to me great luck to be born the eldest son, becauso when you're the eldest son you haven't got to wear any of your brothers' old clothes!' This, If true, Is nnentertalnlng Illustration of the Queen's methods of bringing up tho royal family. There Is an Interesting chapter on 'Personal Characteristics," In which an illustration 1b given ot his remarkable powers of endurance. "During the Prince's visit to Germany, in 1913, two German officers were detached to his suite. Ono day the party had been automoblllng. The Prince asked for the car to bo stopped, as he felt stiff and wanted to have a walk. "Why not walk home?" ho suggested. "It Is fifteen miles, at least," said ono ot the officers. "Never mind, I can manage that distance all right." so the three started off; but only ono of the officers accompanied the Prince to the end of the long walk, as the other had to stay behind with fatigue." 1 I B 5 MATHEIMEY & BttTTS For catalogue and information.

Frankfort, Ky., Feb. ' 29. Tho campaign for tho eradication of illiteracy in Kentucky suffered a serious reverse lato today when the House of pr ttentlon - Representatives, after ""great argument about it nnd about" as Omar says, doled out to the Kentucky Illiteracy Commission a niggardly of $5,000 annually for two years, Instead of $20,000 annually fop five years, as had been urged by tho commission. The amended bill, which passed by a vote of 55 to 29, now goes to tho Senate, whero it is expected to pass. Tho approval of Gov. Stanley even for this small appropriation is considerably doubtful, however, since he recently granted an Interview In which ho said that the State's finances do not warrant nn expenditure In this great cause. The debate on the bill was marked by grievious descriptions of tho depleted condition of the State treasury and the disparity between Kentucky's receipts and disbursements . Opponents for the bill, however, mado no allusion to tho fact that tho bills havp already passed tho House providing for the employment of "extra help" In several Stato departments. In addition to tho reduction of tho appropriation, the bill, before Its passage, was otherwiso amended to ifs detriment, according to its friends. Tho illiteracy commission bill, of which Representative Frank Greene is tho author, was brought before the House this evening when Representative Hobs, of Lexington, moved that it be taken out of the "regular order and placed upon its passage. Tho motion prevailed, 57 to 11. An amendment by Representative Howard providing that appropriations should be authorized for only two years, instead of flvo, was adopted. An amendment by Representative Spahn to strike out a section of the bill which authorized the Illiteracy Commission to have Its printing done by the State, the satM ns other State departments, also waj adopted. Some debate ensued when Repre sentative Bailee offered an amendment to reduce the appropriation for Hit two years to $5,000 auuunlly Representnii-'of $20,000.

Plans of United States fortifications have been found in the possession of Richard von Arend and Rudolph von Kracht, two young Germans arrested hero on a charge- - of operating the mails to swindle, according to a statement y by Assistant United mado States District Attorney MacDonald. Von Arend and Von Kracht, who claim, according to' the Federal authorities, to be German army Lieutenants, were arraigned before a United States commissioner here today. According to post ofllco inspectors the two men had conducted a syste matic begging campaign through the malls, asking for help on the ground that they were destitute German army officers. They aro said to have refused the aid of representatives of charity" organizations, because they did not wish to make public their antecedents, as required by such organizations. Von Arend and Von Kracht were held in $5,000 ball each for a hearing Saturday.

This advice came from an agent of the bureau of investigation and of ficials wero inclined to give it cred ence. Agents of the bureau were busy today watching the reported Diaz plot In various sections with a view to checking any effort to send him arms or ammunition.

Topeka, Kans., March 1. Kansas has discovered that it has a law by which' a marriage will automatically unlock tho doors of tho Kansas peni- tentiary. It Is asserted by stato officials that no other stato has a criminal statute which lets men out of prison when their wives got married. It Is tho Kansas law. This statute was tho first ono' to pass such'n statute. Frank X. Travis of Iola, was tho author of the law. It took htm two sessions of the legislature to get tho bill passed. Since then lt has been copied In effect in 17 states. It is probably that tho rulo which automatically releases men from prison when there Is a wedding in Kansas also will apply In the other states antl-afilnlty ...ji Co-rln- no play-hous- e, en--ti- ro by-th- or ty which have followed tho Kansas law. Tho law provides that when a man or a woman cither, deserts his wife or her husband and childrcn.they are guilty of a felony and may bo sent to prison for terms of two years. The peculiarity of tho law, whereby a wedding automatically unlocks the doors of the prison, was discovered by Gov. Capper last week when tho case of E. I. Conklo was presented to him. Conkle was a farmer living near Great Bend. He became tired of his wife and children and skipped out. After a long hunt Conkle was arrested and brought back to Kansas. Ho was tried and convicted' and sentenced to four years in, prison, two years for deserting and falling . to support his wife and two years for deserting and falling to support, his tW children. t The two terms ran consecutively. Conkle has just completed his first term and started on tho second sentence. His. father discovered that Mrs. Conklo was married about, tho first of the year and wrote to tho government about it, suggesting that since Mrs. Conkle now had another husband, who was supporting her, that his son should not be longer punished for the crime as he was not now responsible. The governor Jurned the matter over to tho attorney general and the attorneys connected with the prison, and a ruling has just been submitted to the governor that the father is right and that Conkle should be released from prison.

I was hardly able to do any of my housework. After taking three'bottles of Cardul, I began to feel like a new woman. I soon gained 35 pounds, and now, I do all my housework, as well as run a big water mill. I wish every suffering woman would give O&RDUI ly trouble. Signs that you need Cardui, the woman's tonic. You cannot make a mistake in trying Cardul for your trouble. It has been helping weak, ailing women for more tnan fifty years. I still use Cardul when I feel a little bad, and it always does me good." Headache, backache, side ache, nervousness, tired, worn-ofeelings, etc., are sure signs of womanut a trial.
