��� I believe thafe George Pufeerbangh
of San Diego is fehe champion temperance lecturer. of California.
George wore the blue, during the *
days, when the North and the
South did not invite each other feo
afternoon teas, or dinner parties.
He is about 75 years young, and
richly endowed with a keen sense
of wife, humor, justice and philosophy. He is fond of a cigar, and
some say that he sometimes takes
a shot of booze. I have often seen
him with one or more^bottles of
whiskey on his desk but I have
never seen him take a drink of any
kind. He usually delivers from
one to ten temperance lectures
every forenoon, and fehis is a
sample of them:
''You say thafe you have lived in.
San Diego, off and on, for fehe pasfe
ten years. Why do you not stay
here all the time? Is fehis not the
sun-kissed city of the Pacific;
America's Garden of Eden; the
birthplace of California, and the
home of art beauty and sunshine?
Along this fringe of the wet Pacific, do not the flowers bloom eternal?   Bet your life they-do!"
"You eay that you earned 890
at Campo, came back to San Diego,
and blew ife all in for booze in three
days. You're a darned fool! Even
with a desert thirst you could not
drink $90 worth of boozerine in 72
hours. You must have bought a
powerfnl lot of liquid damnation
for your saloon friends, and
in doing fehat you hurt them, as
well as yourself. And what do
you get for this damn foolishness?
A sore head, an empty ppeket, and
a night in the police station. For
thafe $90 you could had lived like
an American prince for three
months. Besides you should put
away something for a rainy day,
even in San Diego. Try and curb
fehat desire for strong drink. Cut
it oufe. Be"a man, and 'some day
you may be the mayor of this
beautiful eity/f I fine you $6."
"You say that you are broke,
and cannofe pay for a week. I feell
yon what I do. I will give you
two months in which to pay fehe
$6, providing that until the fine is
paid you will give me your word
of honor, that you will nofe go into
a saloon, or feake a drop of intoxicating liquors.
George Puterbaugh is one of the
besfe    police    magistrates  in   fehe
United States.    He is a man with
an iron hand,   but a velvet touch.
Always just, firm, tender and logical-he has the courage of his  convictions, especially, when he says,
"Six dollars,"   or   "Six   months.
The two latter expressions are his
shortest and most telling speeches.
Help! Murder! Fire!
"All right, Oswald, now you
ask mo how to get down from an
elephant. Understand? AIL right
"Oh, I say, Oscar, can you inform me as to the beat way of getting down from an elephant?''
"Why, my dear.boy, I'm Bur-
prised afe your ignorance. You

you get ife from a goose.���Lehigh

Positive  Acts and  Services   Which
Everyone Must Perform
If any one ever had a notion that
officialdom could win a war, thc
events of the past months in all thc
allied countries have pretty well ended the idea. It is everywhere the
lions of soldiers return from thc
war they must bc provided with
bread and work. But how, if raw
material is lacking, for instance, cotton? The problem is acute, Owing to
the close economic union of the British empire."
Dr. Karsladt declared Turkey
could not satisfy Germany's hunger
for raw material. German> must
have a Central Africa stretching
from the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean. Hence Germany must recover
her colonies and enlarge them. She
must also construct essential naval
bases. Dr. Karsladt concluded by
picturing German submarines operating as far a3 Aden.

Great Name on Western

General Sir Edmund Henry I-Iyn-
ttian Allenby, leader of the British
forces    that took    Jerusalem,      was
General von   Ludcudorff,    who   is
recognized as .the brains of the German government and thc most inllu-

1916. and at the head of this army
commanded thc British right wing in
the battle of Arras, which began oa
Easter Monday.
The Ncw 1'ork World prints thc
following sketch of General Allen-
by's career, which, as it says, has
been in many ways exceptional:

date ot his appointment, to succeed
General Sir Archibald Murray as
commander of thc expeditionary
force on June 15) against whom not
-one mistake or error of judgment
has been charged.
"General Allenby is first and above
all a cavalryman. He came from an
East Anglican family and received
his first commission in the army as
art oflicer of the 6th '. Dragoons,
known as the 'Skillingers? He remained with this command, seeing
active service in various parts of the
world, until the Boer war.
"When the Boer war campaign
ended he had command of thc 5th
Royal Irish Lancers, at whose head
he remained three years. When the
present war began hc was inspi.ctor-
general of cavalry of the British
army in France. Hc contributed
largely, with his cavalry, to save the
Sorely tried infantry in. their retreat
In 1914. Afterward, when his cavalry was forced to discard.its horses
for service in the trenches, he proved as brilliant an organizer and as
resourceful a fighter under the. altered conditions as hc had been a cavalry strategist,
"General Allenby received the full
rank of general following the action
of his command at the battle of the
Aisne, and was mentioned ��� for. ,, his
strategy by Field Marshal Ft ench in
bis report. Allcnby's cavalry advanced on September. .12 to the
neighborhood of Braisnc and cleared
that town and thc high ground beyond it of strong hostile detachments. .
At tlie battle of Arras the general's command occupied the centre,
and again Won distinction when it
penetrated the famous Hindenburg
line to .-a point beyond Mouchy.
"His active campaign in Sduthern
Palestine began October 31 with the
capture of Beershcba, just inside .the-'
southern border. This was pursued
with vigor and uniform success, one
line of defence .after another crumbling before his determined onslaught.
"It required ?\tle more than a
fortnight for General Allenby to
drive the Turks out of all Palestine,
south of the JafTa-Jerusaiern line,
and now Jerusalem has fallen, . and
-tyith it the morale of the Turkish
army. has received a staggering

Adelaide Chapman, a niece of Sir
Launcelot Aubrey Fletcher, and had

He said that it is a war not of armies
but of peoples;'"that there are no
decisive battles in the old sense, when
thc issue of a campaign might bc determined by the result of a single
engagement, as whqn Napoleon
crushed thc Prussians at .Tena, or as
when he was himself crushed by thc
coalition at Waterloo. Nowadays thc
effect of battles -is indirect, and an

Manitoba Government Issues a Valuable Bulletin
To asist farmers in getting thc best
results from their poultry the department of agriculture of. Manitoba
has issued a bulletin on thc selection
of egg-laying hens. Individual instruction by members of the staff
of the poultry department of thc ag
ricultural college in selecting good
layers is also offered to fanners requiring it. Next fall the department
intends to undertake a series of demonstrations in the selection of lay- i
ing hens from farmers' own flocks. |
Notwithstanding the fact that poultry-raising is carried on by farmers!
of Western Canada in a more or less
haphazard way it is generally a profitable branch of farming, and no
doubt as a result of the efforts of the
Manitoba government a foundation
i will bc laid for more and better poultry aud incidentally an incrcas-; in

Sent to a German Prison for Aiding
British Soldiers
A brave French girl, named Mile.
Germaine Chaudrel, who lived with
her family in a little village near
Guise, in the Aisne department, has
just returned to France after two
years' captivity in German prisons.
It was October 20, 1914, that the
region of Guise was invaded. M.
Chaudrel and his family, composed
of the girl Germaine, 15 years old,
and his son, 16 years old, had remained on their little farm. On that
morning, while in his fields, Mr.
Chaudrel suddenly saw a Briiish soldier come out from behind a hedge
and approach him, followed a moment afterwards by ten others. Ttusc
poor fellows had lost themselves,
could not return to the French or
British lines and had been hiding for
days in the country.
M. Chaudrel decided to take these
men to his place. They lived there
for two months, the girl Germaine
and her brother keeping watch night
and day. February 22, 1915, the
tragedy took place. The Germans
heard through a spy of- thc presence
of these eleven British soldiers . in
the poor farmer's house. In the-afternoon they surrounded thc farm and
house. Germaine rushed up to the
attic, where her proteges were. She
was caught on the stairs by a German armed with a revolver.
"Where are the English?" he asked.
'   "Look for them!" replied the girl.
The Tommies knew the danger
their little protectress was running.
They opened the door and gave
themselves up. .
The house was burned, and a few
days after the women were condemned by court martial, ��� Mme,
Chaudrel to four years in prison, her
daughter to tAvo years and her son
to-three years.   -���������'���-.
At the trial the girl Germaine
asked, "What about my father and
the British soldiers?"
A German answered, "I regret to
say they were all shot a fpAV days
ago.    They all  died bravely."
Russia'svTerrible Outlook
The real Russia is patriotic. It
longs for the return of law and order. It watches "with bewilderment
the present frenzy of the towns. Before long it will assert itself and will
find or fashion the weapons for enforcing its will. Not all the army by
any means has been . ruined by the
Soviet. The artillery, the Cossacks
and thc cavalry have remained loyal
to their country and to their ofiiccrs
and to their traditions throughout. A
terrible winter of privation and tumult and suffering lies ahead of Russia, but the agony will be shortlived
in. proportion to its intensity. Tlie
forces that make for reason and national health arc gathering strength
and thc very viciousness. of thc neAv
government will tend to work . Its
OAVn.cure.~*London-Daily Mail.

World Must Fight   the   Barbarians
for the Sake of Peace
An applicant for exemption from
military service, according to an esteemed contemporary, based his
claim on the belief that only barbarians and Huns should fight. Thc
belief is shared, no doubt, by a good
many others, and it would bc a pleasant relief for peacefully disposed
people if all thc fighting could bc
restricted to the Huns and the barbarians. But if the Huns and thc
barbarians refuse to restrict the
fighting to themselves, what then?
Is thc rest of thc world to become
barbarian rather than fight thc barbarians? Many of those, perhaps
the great mass of them, who arc
fighting the Hun and the barbarian
today have no love for fighting for
its own sake, but they love thc
cause for which they arc fighting,
' and they havc no doubt as to thc
necessity for fighting.���Woodstock
Rode a Wild Moos*
Ontario Hunter Performed a Thrilling Feat on Swimming
Tho most remarkable feat performed by a man with a wild animal in
the open as an unAvilling partner is
the unique act which happened recently in Ontario, when a hunter rode
a wild moose.
Rainy Lake, Ontario, Canada, is ia
a region abounding with' moose and
other game and has only been recently made accessible to the sportsman by the completion of the Canadian Northern's new transcontinental railway. It is not an uncommon
sight to see the animals swimming
across the lake.
When the moose in question was
Avell out in the middle of the lake
two sportsmen overtook it in their
canoe by paddling out from a point
and cutting it off. Running the canoe alongside the swimming animal,
thc man in the boAv let himself over
the side of the boat, maintaining his
own balance and keeping the canoe
steady^ by placing his feet on the
moose's back. The whole required
cool nerve and a long knowledge of
boating for the canoe is the most unstable of.all craft. When the right
moment in his judgment had arrived
he thrcAv himself clear and down
onto the animal's back in a true riding position. Holding on with one
hand to one of the submerged points
of the antlers at the rear he maintained his position, while waving his
hat to urge the moose on to its best
efforts as his novel steed proceeded
shoreAvard Avith its unaccustomed
But their danger was, once thc
moose got ashore he might turn on
his rider, so Avhen Hearing it, the
man.slipped off and climbed back into his canoe, alloAving thc moose to
make good its escape, none thc worse
for its experience.���Scientific American.

German Pacifist Says no Peace Till

Prof, von Wrangel, a well kiioAvn
German pacifist, writes ia the. Freie
Zeitung that he had always been in
favor of immediate peace Avithou;
annexation,'but'that as the result of
a recent talk with Field. Marshal von
Hindenburg he has completely
changed his opinion.
The professor says he sees that
Wilson, Lloyd George and Clemenceau are right that there cannot be
a durable peace in Europe until German, especially Prussian, militarism
has been crushed.
The verdict should be a shock to
the highest German political and military authorities, Avith whom von
Wrangel has been on excellent terms
since the beginning of'the war.

This Is Important   if   You   Would
Preserve Your Teeth
Menus will bc turned upside doAvn
if thc Avarnitig of the author of "Diet
and Dental Decay," in the January
Good Housekeeping, is followed.
"What you eat last at meals," Avrites
Miss Lucy" Oppen, "is responsible,
to a large extent, for your dentist
bills. For it is thc last thing eaten
Avhich chiefly determines the nature
of the after-flow of saliva that cleans
thc teeth," she continues. "In other
Avords, it is not so much what you
eat as what, you eat last, Avhich is important in this respect. For instance,
it is our custom at breakfast to give
the children first of all some Fruit,
fresh or stewed, and to alioAv thera
.0 nnish Avith porridge, often highly
sAVPftencd. and toast or rolls. The
acid-forming foods arc thus placed-
..v. .i.i-.r oau effect on the teeth
."'���'"I's.'long after the meal has
been eaten. It Avould be better to
eat_ the porridge first and the acid
fruit afterward, for thus the resulting
flow of highly alkaline saliva would
effectually rinse the mouth and counteract the acid-forming tendency of
any particles of the sugar and porridge which might be left. Our
Avtdespread custom of having for desert at luncheon and dinner some very
SAveet or starchy food is bad for thc
teeth. It means that thr formation
of acid in the mouth will be heavy,
and that the resulting saliva will be
poor in its alkaline quality. The
French and Italians have solved this
problem far better than Ave. They
begin as a rule with some stimulating
hors d'oeuvre and end with a simple
fruit for dessert. It Avould be Avell if
Ave followed their good example. And
this AA'ould not be difficult.
"At breakfast save the larger part
of the fruil for the end of the meal.
For luncheon   a   little   piece of acid
fruit    may    be    eaten    for the. hors
d'oeuvre or a radish or simple salad
may form the first course.   For dessert fresh or steAved fruit, fruit pudding, or. pie may be used, providing
i that the fruit is not too highly sAvcet-
. cned and that thc pie does not have
: touch crust.    Perhaps    Ave can   even
i learn to eat our salad last, and this
! would prove an excellent thing    for
i the teeth in more than one respect.
There is no    tooth brush -which will
remove    sticky   pastrii-s... and , cake
from  the fissures  of  the  teeth  Avith
i such    effectiveness as  will  a    green
i salad, celery, radishes,    onions,    apples, oranges and fibrous  foods  generally eaten thc last  thing.     Under
[the 100 to 2S0 pound pressure of the
j healthy bite, these fibrous foods will
j grind    out    the    particles    of   acid-
forining foods."
