The cause seems to have   been  defective stove pipes.    Mr.   Duperry  had put on a fire in his heater and had  gone out to feed his stock.    He "bad  been out but a short time when he  noticed    the roof   smoking.

Eye troubles offDiany  descriptions may be wonderfully benefited by  foilowingr the simple rules. Here is *hs pre*  scription: Go to any active drug store and  get a bottle of Bon-Opto tablets. Drop one  Bon-Opto tablet in a fourth of a glass of  water and allow to dissolve. With this liquid  bathe*- the eyes two to four times daily. You  should notice your eyes clear up perceptibly  right from the atare and inflammation will  quickly disappear. If your eyes are bothering you, even a little, take steps to save  them now before it is too late. Many hopelessly blind might have been saved if they had  cared for their eyes in time.  Note: Another prominent Physician to  whom the above article was submitted, said:  "Bon-Opto ia a very remarkable remedy. Its  constituent ingredients are well known to eminent eye specialists and widely prescribed by  them. The manufacturers guarantee it to  strengthen eyesight 50 per cent, in one week's  time in many instances or refund the money.  It can be obtained from any good druggist  and is one of the very few preparations I  feel should be kept on hand for regular use  in almost erery- fansi'y."

''The atrocity and- horrors with  which your armies crushed the peace-  loving, innocent Belgians and Poles  sent an electric shock', through all  civilized nations, so< effectively, that  the word of your, hypnotic Kaiser and  his advisers is no, longer worth the  scrap of paper upon which they are  recorded to any of the Allied 'nations,  hence we can take no proposal froth  your Kaiser or his advisers.... There is,  therefore,-no alternative left fco us but  to array our 600 million subjects on  our side against the 100 million subjects on your side and fight your  country to a finish, unless you dethrone your Kaiser and crush your  military class. You will then be left  free to form a government of your  people, by your people, for your  people. We do not want your country,  nor the life of your non-combatant  subjects. It will follow .that your  country will have to stand, part of the  loss'caused by the war to ravish territory, but your present generation will  not be able to assume the whole  burden, and to put more upon you  than you can fulfill in your lifetime  would, be equal to taxic!*0* the unborn  generation for your sins, which would  be contrary to the new spirit and  morals of the Allied nations.  "Having accomplished the crushing  of your Kaiser and his military power,  we must all co operate in crushing the  other power that is a standing menace  to the happiness and permanent peace  of the world, namely, The Money  Power.

Thc scene from  the deck of our launch, as wc glided  from dock to dock and from reach to  gleamiiig reach of the smoke-wreathed river, was one of epic grandeur.  Here, like the ribs of an unimaginably huge leviathan, lay thc shipway  in which the Lusitania was born, and,  one cradle of ships a fleet of destroyers, a fleet of submarines, a fleet of  battle-cruisers, that in themselves  would have constituted a formidable  navy for . any country.

If England lost control of thc sea  j working and sweating as if their lives  depended on the achievement of each  minute.  And let nobody think that the abandonment of their brief holiday was  a small sacrifice on thc part of these  "sheltered" workers. Nobody who  has been through those grinding  workships will ever again think that.  In the munition Avorks, a short distance away, hundreds of women were  heaving great shells into the shaping  machines, or drawing redrhot copper  bands from furnaces; and there was a  steady feryor about their work, hour  after hour, that seemed as if it would  exhaust any human energy. They  seemed to lavish all thc passions of  motherhood     upon     their work;   for  forty  money and even the blood of her  sons at the price of such humiliaimg  conditions.
