The government War Risk Insurance Bureau, which heretofore has insured only announced that it would "broaden the scope of its operations" and hereafter insure practically all forms of contraband for European countries except arms and ammunition. The decision to insure contraband was reached at a meeting between Secretary McAdoo and the advisory board of the bureau, and was announced in the following statement: "Secretary McAdoo, following a meeting with the advisory board of the war risk insurance and the director of the bureau, announced that, owing to present conditions and with a view to facilitating more thoroughly the commerce of the United States, the Bureau of War Risk Insurance would broaden the scope of its operations and insure more generally cargoes and vessels beund to European countries. Future policies will cover practically everything except guns, arms and ammunition." such move was no? unexpected. It was very emphatically stated that no suggestion of mediation or discussion would be considered unless it was accompanied by abandonment of illegal assaults upon American shipping, a course to which there is no reason for believing the imperial Government is giving a thought. The feeling in all quarters here is that the United States has with infinite patience and forbear ance done everything possible with honor to avoid the virtual state of war now existing through German aggression. tinues, officials say, there is nothing to be done but adopt measures of defense and no basis exists for discussion.

George Strack, a Councilman from the Fourth Ward, his wife and six children, who lived in a handsome new $3,500 home, were in their house when the cyclone approached. All took refuge in the cellar. When the cyclone struck the house was carried away bodily. Mr. Strack suffered injuries about his face and his ear was torn off. His brother Henry, who was with him, suffered a broken shoulder. Every available physician has been pressed into service in attending the injured, and every hospital has been filled to its capacity. The injured taken to St. Edward's Hospital had filled all available rooms and wards and overflowed into the halls. St. Edward's is the only public hospital in the city and arrangements were being made to transfer many of the injured to Louisville institutions which had offered their facilities. Fairview Cemetery, in the east and of New Albany, was swept and completely demolished by the cyclone.

Among these rolling uplands were the stately summer mansions of a millionaire colony which migrated here annually from the sweltering metropolis. It was in this abiding place of wealth that Enoch Golden had erected a great rambling manor house. The aged banker now stepped out of one of the French windows opening on the broad veranda and stood thoughtfully surveying the peaceful landscape glimmering in the June sunlight. "What is troubling you.

The next moment those creeping figures had avalanched themselves upon him, knocking his weapon from his hand and bearing him heavily to the ground under their combined Fighting with a courage born of desperation, the Laughing Mask with one supreme effort shook off the clutches of his unwieldy opponents and sprang to his feet, the strip of white paper still gripped in bis left hand. Louie, seeing his opportunity, leveled the revolver and fired at close range. A stinging pain in his left hand forced him to involuntarily relinquish his hold on the crumpled bit of paper, and a puff of wind sent it kitifig high above his head. The astonished girl, sitting as motionless as an equestrian statue, had barely time to gather her scattered wits, when that disputed scrap of parchment came gently floating down the breeze. She knew that paper must have some great intrinsic value or the Laughing Mask would not have jeopardized his life for its possession. Wheeling her horse in his tracks, she struck him a sharp blow with her riding crop. Smarting under this unusual indignity, he launched out like a black thunderbolt toward the startled gangsters blocking his path. Margery swung low like an Indian andfecooped up the paper. As Margery swept past the last of her enemies she saw the black limousine backing out from the shrubbery just ahead of her, and by a herculean effort succeeded in pulling up barely in time to avoid a collision with that mysterious vehicle. Just then the Laughing Mask, with his left hand hastily bandaged, burst out of the bushes and ran swiftly toward the waiting motor car. He stopped in sudden wonderment as he saw the serene-eyegirl who smilingly extended a frayed and soiled strip of white paper. "I don't know whether this is your property," she said lightly as he came wiit. "That bluff don't work," he replied, "not when we know the Laughing Mask was wounded in the left hand not half an hour ago." Then he solemnly enunciated, "David Man-ley- , you are under arrest!" With these words he dexterously slipped the handcuffs over the secretary's wrists. "But this is preposterous. Captain Brackett," declared Enoch Golden somewhat heatedly. "I would as soon think of accusing my own daughter of being the Laughing Mask as this boy, who has stood by me through all my troubles." "I'm sorry, Mr. Golden, but the law must take Its course," answered the smug-facepolice officer.

"I guess you'll have to do your duty, captain," came his deply. "I have no explanation to offer you."

He quickly crossed to that silently raging guardian of the peace and extracted the yellow bit of metal from his unwilling fingers. Then with leveled weapon he backed slowly to the open window, and, leaping out with an agile spring, vanished from the sight of that little assemblage. Overcome with the very audacity of this daring stroke, they stood for a moment staring at the open window, then came a hurried stampede out of the house to cut off the retreat of the masked fugitive.

Presently her horse reared again, and this time more violently, as a hawk-facechauffeur wearing a greasy duster jumped up from the grassy bank where he had been smoking his pipe. Near this disreputable figure stood an equally disreputable-lookintaxicab with yellow trimmings. With a light touch of her whip, Margery swept past this leering harbinger d g toward her, "but I didn't want you to lose it after that terrible fight." .He was suddenly interrupted by the sound of loud and raucous shouts and the Jerky whirring of the taxicab engine. "These men are in an ugly mood and will stop at nothing. My man and I ran hold them off until you get a start When you get home give that paper to your father's secretary, It concerns him deeply. Go at once and ride as hard as you know how." From the depths of a comfortable wicker chair in the spacious living room, Margery narrated the exciting events of the last hour to a little circle of breathless auditors, including the somewhat abashed Captain Brackett of headquarters. And when she exhibited that tattered slip of paper which she had been instructed to deliver to the young secretary, David Manley, the captain could restrain himself no longer. "I ain't sayin' this Laughing Mask ain't brave enough when it comes to a showdown," he said in unctuous tones, "but that don't let him off those crimes he's charged with. I've been followin' up a clue that leads right into this house, Mr. Golden, and if you ain't got any objections I'd like to have a talk with that secretary of yours." At that moment the unsuspecting object of this thinly veiled insinuation airily entered the 100m. Margery uttered a gasp of surprise as she saw his left hand bound in a handkerchief. "That left hand of yours looks kind of mussed up," said the police captain, "perhaps you wouldn't mind tellin' us how it got hurt." For the first time since Margery had known the frank and boyishly engaging David Manley he appeared constrained and somewhat evasive. " Wh I was tooling around in the gunroom and and my automatic accidentally went off," he replied haltingly, and then added quickly as though struck by an inspiration, "I was cleaning it, you know."

Healthy Skin Depends On Kidneys p jja V1 The vaccination of horses as a preventive for strangles or distemper is being extensively employed. It has been found that the cause of the disease warrants the use of a bacterial vaccine. This gives assistance to nature's own efforts of protection and forms the logical means of preventing strangles as well as other diseases caused by specific organisms. The outcome of the vaccination of horses has in some instances been disappointing. It is possible that in such cases the bacteria has deteriorated or become ineffective, or that the results are complicated by secondary infections. In the latter case it is advisable to use bacterins that will combat the secondary infections. These are called mixed bacterins, and contain n variety of killed bacteria commonly encountered in such diseases. In case distemper appears, all healthy animals should be iinmediately injected with strcptobacterins. The administration of bacterial vaccines should be made by a competent veterinarian, as improper administration may not provide proper protection and so result in irregularities. Bacterins can be obtained from manufacturers of various biological products. CLIPPING HORSES IN Ohio. "Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription helped me so much during expectancy.
