The names of the members of the new government are then given, and the appeal continues: "The new Cabinet will base its policy on the following principles: "1. An immediate general amnesty for all political and religious offenses, including terrorists acts and military and agrarian offenses. "2. Liberty of speech and of the press; freedom for alliances, unions and strikes, with the extension of these liberties to military officials within the limits admitted by military requirements. "3. Abolition of all social, religious and national restrictions. "4. To proceed forthwith to the preparation and convocation of a constitutional assembly, based on universal suffrage, which will establish a governmental regime. "5. The substitution of the police by a national militia, with chiefs to be elected and responsible to the government. "6. Communal elections to be based on universal suffrage. "7. The troops which participated in the revolutionary movement will not be disarmed, but will remain in Petrograd. "8. While maintaining strict military discipline for troops on active service, it is desirable to abrogate for soldiers all restrictions in the enjoyment of social rights accorded other citizens. "The Provisional Government desires to add that it has no intention to profit by the circumstances of the war to delay the realization of the measures of reform mentioned above."

With the final cementing of the elements concerned in the construction of the new government upon the ruins of the old, the new Cabibet Ministers, relieved of the heavy grind of the endless conferences of the last few days, in which they suffered many anxious hours, have assumed the posts to which they were assigned. Prof. Paul N. Milukoff at the foreign office received the diplomatic representatives of the Entente allies, after which he entered upon a long cabinet conference. One of the first acts of the minister was to send a series of cable messages to the Russian diplomats abroad to the effect that Russia was united in the desire to fight out the war with the allies, the determination to continue-the conflict until the victory is achieved being stronger than ever. The armies in the field have advised that the abdication of the Emperor has been enthusiastically acquiesced in, according to a foreign office official. Telegrams from virtually all the commanders have been received, assuring the support of the government guaranteed in advance by General Michael Alexief, chief of staff. CABINET MEMBER ies and fortresses to the new regime, Moscow. Kharkov, Tsaritsyn and V'o-logda already have formally acknowledged the new Government and so far as is known not a single section of the country stands out for the old order of things. Supported by unanimous vote, the present Government is, in reality, a Government of the people. The Council of Nobility has held special meetings in 15 provinces and indorsed the new Government. The old regime of Conservatives has been supplanted by a Government of Liberals. M. Kerenski, the new Minister of Justice, is a Socialist. He accepted the portfolio on the stipulation that there should be absolute freedom of speech and of the press, and full political amnesty. The Cabinet has been chosen exclusively from present and past members of the Duma. It was named by the Executive Committee of the Duma, in conjunction with other Deputies and representatives of the workingmen and the soldiers. Prof. Paul Milukoff, the new Foreign Minister, informed the correspondent that the new regime was determined on the elimination of Emperor Nicholas and of the regency of Grand Duke Michael. 1 claring the allegiance of important cit- - j j nese noblewoman mid a lady in fSawt ing to the late dowager empress, is "at present on visit to the Halted Stat'1 devoted chiefly to tin- study of American uncial and educational customs.

STRIKE IS DECLARED OFF EAMP FOR FARROWING "CMOS" No ACT From the Crop of Wheat on 53 Acres in Western Canada. EDUCATORS OF STATE MAKING This story of paying for your land out of one year's crop is fully authenticated by a great many farmers in Western Canada. And now, all that the farmer makes FUND Is velvet and you find him going more extensively into stock raising, for all authorities agree that in a short time there will be a demand for live stock, such as even will tax the .vast resources of Western Canada. They will go into stock raising because of the adaptability of the country to provide food and fodder without feeding grain if necessary. They will go into stock and improve their places. They will install steam and healing plants in fact, many are now doing it. They will have automobiles, in fact in many districts there is not a farmer but has one. They will beautify their homes and erect fine barns until the, whole countrv will be as attractive as many of the counties in the best states in the Union. But we started out to tell you of the farmer who paid for 160 acres of land from the crop of wheat off of 53 acres. The Holden district on the line of the Grand Trunk Pacific does not appear to the ordinary observer to be any better than many other districts along that line, and probably isn't. It was in this district that John Larcome. a settler, purchased in 1915 1(50 acres of raw prairie land. He broke and seeded 53 acres. His crop turned out well, and he sold the greater portion of it for J2.U70. His land cost him $10.50 per acre, or $2,040. So that the crop from the 53 acres paid for the land and left a balance of over $300, which with part of the crop left over would Just pay for the cost of operation. This Is not really an unusual case, hundreds of other farmers in Alberta and Saskatchewan having been able to do the SURVEY RESULTS PLACED BEFORE GOVERNOR. IS NOW BEING RAISED Plans Ready For Submission Soon Have Appointment, Board, By Charge of Kentucky Fund General Assembly Must Act. Western Newspaper Union News Service. Frankfort, Ky. Educational leaders who conferred here in regard to accepting the offer of money from the Federal Government under the act, providing for agricultural and vocational training and preparation of teachers for those branches, are making up statements showing how much the Louisville schools, the uormal schools and the University of Kentucky each can apportion to the fund. When the amounts have been satisfactorily apportioned State Supt. V. O. Gilbert will lay the proposal before Gov. Stanley, who, in order to take advantage of the act, must appoint a board to administer the fund for the state until the General Assembly, at its next regular session, can formally accept the arrangement and provide for the extension of the work, as the amount apportioned to Kentucky by the Federal Government increases year by year. It is probable that the State Board Smith-Hughe- s of Education, composed of Supt. Gil- bert, Attorney General M. M. Logan and Secretary of State James P. Lewis will be the temporary board. The Louisville schools and the State Normals and University will not divert any of their money into a special fund, but will adapt the work miles. Frankfort, Ky. Upon a survey of reports of the road work done in other states during the last few yaars and comparing them with Kentucky's achievements in that line, the Blue Grass state ranks near the top of the list, when size and importance is being considered. Some of the country's greatest highway projects cross the state, north and south and east and west, and for that reason this section is being viewed with great interest at this time in view of the apparent imminence of war. Kentucky stands at the head of all Southern States in mileage of good roads, having approximately 20,000 miles of improved highways, with the building of 1,600 miles let to contract. There are approximately 40.000 automobiles in Kentucky, estimates Eugene Stewart, of the Louisville Automobile Club, and 2.900,000 in the entire country, according to the latest authentic report. The principal arteries of motor travel tarough Kentucky are: Midland Trail, which crosses the continent from San Francisco to Washington. The lenjsrth of the Midland Trail from Wash.e"on to San Franciseo is 2,930 mile vhereas the distance by railroad is 6 110 miles. This highway, which is practically completed throughout, enters Kentucky at Louisville, passes through Frankfort, Lexington, Mt. Sterling and Catletts-burinto West Virginia. The Dixie Highway, with two routes running north and south through the state. The Eastern route enters Kentucky at Covington and runs through to Middlesboro, connecting with the Boone Way. The western route enters Kentucky at Louisville and runs through Russellville into Tennessee. The Dixie Highway connects with the Midland Trail and the Lincoln Highway, linking the North and South with the East and West and traversing 4,206 g ON LIVER; BOWELS sick headache, biliousness, bad taste or constipation by morning.

The less a sow Is disturbed at farrowing time the better, and for this reason she should be kept separate from the other swine. While someone should be on hand, unless she needs assistance, It is best to keep away from her. If it does become necessary to help, do It as quietly as possible. As the pigs are not able to take much milk, the flow should not be stimulated for a few days. Give the sow plenty of water, as she is in feverish condition, but take the chill off of It If the day Is cold. It Is not necessary to feed the sow for a day or two, and the first feed given should consist of a small Western Newspaper Union News Service. New York. The Conference committee of railroad managers authorized President Wilson's mediators to make whatever arrangements were necessary with the railroad brotherhoods to call off the threatened strike. The formal letter in which this authorization was made, signed by Elisha Lee, Chairman of the Managers' Committee, was as follows: "In the national crisis precipitated by events which we heard the national Purgative Waters?

Immediately after Secretary Lane had made his announcement the brotherhood leaders sent telegrams to all the general chairmen informing them that the strike had been declared off. The announcement of the managers that they had yielded apparently came as a surprise to the brotherhood chiefs, for they were in bed when summoned again to the conference room. Hffi "California Syrup of Figs" can't harm tender stomach, liver and bowels. Every mother realizes, after giving her children "California Syrup of Figs" that this is'tbeir ideal laxative, because they love its pleasant taste and it thoroughly cleanses the tender little stomach, liver and bowels without griping. When cross, irritable, feverish, or breath is bad, stomach sour, look at the tongue,mother! If coated, give a teaspoon ful et this harmless "fruit laxative," and in a few hours all the foul, constipated waste, sour bile and undigested food passes out of the bowels, and you have a well, playful child again. When its little system is full of cold, throat sore, has stomach-ache- , diarrhoea, indigestion, colic remember, a good "inside cleaning" should always be the first treatment given. Millions of mothers keep "California Syrup of Figs" handy; they know a teaspoonful today saves a sick child tomorrow.

A look of surprised consternation tame into Red Eagan's face for a moment he swayed unsteadily on his feet then slowly crumpled into a heap of Inanimate Hay. Into the startled vision of his companion came a black limousine furiously racing along the highway, the evil face of Legar plainly discernible as he leaned far out from the swaying vehicle, emptying his automatic in their direction. There was not a moment to lose. Snatching the crimson-stainepaper from under the limp body of the slain gunman, the woman ran swiftly toward the old barn, reaching that sanctuary Just as Legar and his confederates swarmed out of the limousine in hot pursuit. Through the sagging portals and up the rickety stairs she darted, the wolfish pack close at her heels. For a brief Instant she surveyed her surroundings. Be hind the heavy oaken door of the harness-room she knew Margery and her father had taken refuge In accordance with her instructions, and she must in no way Jeopardize their safety. Close by a broken window, overlooking the depths of the rocky gorge, stood a shabby trunk. It took but a moment for the harried fugitive to scramble into that ancient receptacle, but oven as she lowered the cover Legar and his henchmen stormed up the narrow stairs. The quick eye of the master crook caught the movement of that closing trunk cover. Grinning with unholy exultation, he turned to his unsavory crew of followers. "Take that trunk and throw It out the window," snarled Legar. "We've caged our bird all right, and when she ntt those rocks she won't feel like meddling with my business for some time to rami" As he led his murderous band out of the old building toward the abruptly sloping wall of the ravine, tbe door of the harness room slowly opened and Enoch Golden stepped out, d f J one-arme- d fn high-powere- d clumsy-fingere- d head-shakin- g mo-me- nt porte-cocher- e Na-gu- s, horror-stricke- n scar-ravage- d d vine-covere- , e one-arme- d blood-staine- d d low-tone- d One-Lam- p One-Lam- p expe- grim-face- d time-wor- n well-wish- d Ions-draw- n black-garbe- d flat-Hoote- d see blue-jowle- d white-pillare- d d low-tone- well-directe- n d One-Lam- p half-consciou- s One-Lam- p re-Jotu- d stoop-shouldere- d I ink-splash- blue-overalle- d half-witte- i J MOUNT VERNON SIGNAL Died of Premature Old Age! tively young persons passing away when they should have lived to be 70 or 80 years of age.

The more injurious the poisons passing thru the kidneys, the quicker will those noble organs be degenerated, and the sooner they decay. To prevent premature old age and promote long life, lighten the work of the kidneys by drinking plenty of pure water all day long, and occasionally taking Anuric (double strength) before meals.
