f R. F. D. No. 5. Lowell, Ohio
**I have been suffering for years
with female trouble. Was operated
on five years ago. It relieved me
some but I did not regain my
strength. Two years later was
taken sick and bedfast several
months. I treated a long while
without much relief. I was dis
couraged, my mind affected, so
nervous 1 could neither eat or
sleep and unable to do anything.
We tried several doctors but
one after another gave up my case
as hopeless. Finally a good friend
advised me to try Pe-ru-na. I did.
It relieved me almost immediately.
|Your medical department said I
was suffering from chronic catarrh
of the system. I began taking your
medicine in March, 1914, and con
tinued until August. I took ten
bottles of Pe-ru-na and three bot
tles of Man-a-lin and felt like a
new person. Your medicine seemed
like a gift from Heaven. It was
like ’coming from darkness into
>We have used your medicine
since for \ coughs, colds and grip
with good results. We will always
keep it on hand. I weigh twenty
five pounds more than I ever did,
cat and sleep well and can do a
good day's work. Everybody says
1 look fine. Even the doctors are
Surprised. I cannot thank you
enough and will always recommend
Pe-ru—na to sufferers from
R. F. D. No. 5, Lowell, O.
' Mrs. Scheffel is only one of
many thousand women in the
world, who owe their present health
to Pe-ru-na. The record of. this
medicine is a proud one as Pe-ru
na has held th’e confidence of both
sexes for fifty years or more.
If your trouble is due to a
catarrhal inflammation in any or
gan or part of the body, do like
Mrs. Scheffel. Try Pe-ru-na. Insist
upon having the original and re
liable remedy for catarrhal condi
tions. You won’t be sorry.

Police of a Detroit station are kept
,busy explaining to persons who wan
der-into the back r^om there and find
lit looking like a Monday morning in
the back yard of a young woman's
seminary. Draped from chairs, tables
idoorknobs and ropes are sixty dainty,
filmy silk nighties of all hues and sizes
and conditions of servitude.
They are, so the explanation goes,
the results of the labors of Joseph
Labedz, who is a fancier of these gar
ments. Labedz has been in Detroit
four months, having come from Chi
cago. In that time he has collected
ninety silk nighties from various back
[yards in the north end, he admits.
He was arrested when Mrs. Sydney
O. Mills missed three of the dainty
[garments from her washline. Police
| were notified. They arrested Labedz.
| He was wearing all three of the
; nighties as underwear.
Labedz pleaded guilty before Judge
[ Charles L. Bartlett in Recorder’s
court. He was sentenced to ninety
days in the house of correction, one
for each nightie.

AT first blush the action e? the '
Presbyterian General Assembly
in the Fosdick affair seems a trl- j
umph for conservatism. Yet upon 1
closer view it becomes doubtful if
the conservatives have much to re-1
toice over. Consider the situation: j
Rev. Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdick
is the special Sunday preacher at i
the First Presbyterian church in1
New York city. He is not a Pres- J
byterian. He is an ordalbed Baptist (
minister. Further, he is a profes-1
sor in Union Theological Seminary, |'
an undenominational institution.1
which has frequently been con- j
demned in Presbyterian circles for /
Its unorthodox Christianity. Ob- <
vlously Rev. Dr. Fosdick is not likely 1
to preach doctrines whicu belong pe-,
cullarly to the Presbyterian faith, j
He has even been accused of having'
denied the divinity of Christ, the ■
rankest kind of “heresy.”
Now, in dealing with this situation,,
the most that the conservativesi
could do was to force through the i
assembly a resolution expressing,
“profound sorrow that doctrines con-1
trary to the standards of the Pres^y-!
terlan church had been taught” from 1
Its pulpits. These are rather gen
eral terms, open to a variety of in
terpretations. And the vote should j
be noted: 439 to 359. Thus 359,
bona fide Presbyterians, many of (
them members of the clergy, sorry |
perhaps that “doctrines contrary to
the standards of the Presbyterian
:hurch had been taught” in that
ihurch, refused to approve a "blind”
ittack on Dr. Fosdick.
This is liberalism, indeed. Surely ■'
it is the very ultimate of liberalism
and tolerance for so considerable a
body of representative members of.
one denomination to be willing to
turn over the pulpits of that denom
ination, permanently so to speak, to
ministers of another denomination.
When some years ago the Episcopal
ians decided to throw open their pul
pits upon occasion to clergymen of
other faiths there was a loud chorus
of approval from all religious lib
erals. But the stand of the Episco
palians is of but infinitesimal import
when compared with what so many
Presbyterians—almost half of the
church membership, If the delegates
to the General Assembly are truly
representative—propose to do.

i Congress and Coal Question. }
Richard Spillane, in Comnwrc* and Finance.
Senator Kenyon, at a session of the Calder committee, asked Colonel
Wentz, representative of the coal operators, if he considered the coal business
a private business. Colonel Wentz answered affirmatively.
Apparently, the senator thought otherwise, for he remarked that the rail
road business had been considered a private business once upon a time, but
the transportation people had practiced rebating, had played politics, had
dlacrlmiv&ted and generally had conducted their affairs from a selfish basis
and in disregard of public rights until the public had to act. No correction
of these pernicious practices apparently was possible, so long as railroading
was considered a private business. Not until the gdvemnment assumed the
authority vested in it and showed that railroading was a national matter, did
the evils end.
Street railroad people thought their was a private business, too, and ran
wild until they came under city or state regulation. He made some comment,
too, on banking methods which long ago led to governmental supervision.
“We might get along without banking,” he remarked, “but we cannot do with
out railroads and coal." Then he inquired If Colonel Wentz saw any good
reason why the coal operators should object to furnishing to the government
accurate data as to costs of producing coal. The colonel replied that it would
be discriminatory, no such information being t’emanded from industries or
from farmers. v
Senator Kenyon, who Is one of the ablest men in congress, is bent on reg
ulating the coal industry. Possibly that Is but a step to nationalization. The
drift of sentiment the world over is in that directldn. If it comes here coal
people will be responsible even If they were not guilty of all the crimes
charged against them recently. Colonel Wentz might have put up a fair
argument against regulation or-nationalization if he had been better posted.
There is a distinction between the coal business and the businesses of trans
portation and banking. Railroads get charters granting certain rights to
them, in return for which they contract to perform certain public functions.
So* too, with street railroads and national and state banks. VV hen they vio*
late these contracts, as some of t£em have done, they are subject to govern
mental regulation or control.
Railroads have the right to condemn private property. A coal company
has no such right. It enters Into no contract with the state. In essence It Is
a private concern. If a government assumes the same right in relation to a
coal concern as It does to a railroad, the whole question of property becomes
Involved. Legally this is a delightful prospect. How the highest court would
determine it is in the realm of guesswork. Probably conditions at the time
would determine the jurists In their finding. They might decide that the
Interests of the many are superior to the privileges of the few; that the ma
jority must not be exploited by the minority or that public good is supreme
to private profit.
However that may be, the coal operators are by no means happy. They
are conscious of their sins, but find some comfort in the knowledge that they
haven't committed all the crimes of which they are charged. Sinners are
peculiar in that respect. It doesn’t matter what they have done, how much
they have transgressed, if they are accused of doing something more than
really was done they consider they are entitled to sympathy.
As a matter of fact, it required a very well balanced coal man to keep
his feet on the ground and be strictly honest and fair In the days when coal,
so to speak, ran wild. Half the time the average coal man had difficulty in
keeping up with the kaleidoscopic changes. The fuel administration gave
orders at one time. The railroad administration butted In another. Next, the
department of justice got busy. One month there were priorities for this dis
trict or that section. Another time there were embargoes on one section or
another. Still later, what was contract coal became free coal. All the time
prices were going crazy. The world seemed to be mad for coal at any price,
and the higher it went the more urgent the demand. Even t*1®
entered the market, and they were worse than all the others. Oh. by th#
way, the Interstate Commerce commission also butted In.
Much has been made of the various coal strikes. If report is true, the
unions and representatives of the bituminous operators entered into agree
ment, or rather an understanding, to squeeze the public and split the plunder.
The strike developed, it is asserted, because the railroads tried, and in soma
eases succeeded, in getting coal below the government price. The union
miners had exalted ideas of the rake off they would receive, and, believing
they were being swindled or lied to by the operators, struck.
There was profiteering as never before. Many operators sought to be
honest but in the riot of price Increases and of charges of profiteering they
thought they might as well profit by the game as well as have the name of
being parties to it. They cloaked their operations by tacking wholesaling on
to their business. They formed groups of four or six or eight.. They wouldn t
sell free coal to the public, but they sold it to their neighbors wholesale
house, and he sold it to another operator's wholesale adjunct, and he to an
other, and so on, 50 cents a ton being added to every transaction. Sometime*
one lot of coal was handled 10 times In this manner. Sometimes only the 50
cents was added to the price. Sometimes It was 10 per cent. Thfre Is air in
stance of one lot the initial transaction In which was at $3.50 a ton that woi
• in cn o ton when it grot out of the one circle of operators.
°‘ There was utter demoralization after the strike so far as distribution wa*
concerned, and there was almost as bad a condition when the department of
justice people got after some of the operators. Some of the worst offenders
dropped out of the local market In hope of saving their skins and turned aft
their attention to export trade. This only tended to aggravate the domestic
shortage The department of justice probably will be wrestling with some
of thefe cases for years. It's difficult in varipus instances to separate the
bLIo from the coats It would be well If 100 or more of the worst offenders

What “Cheapness" Mesas.
From the Manaleoturenf lfcnard.

when he stated a great truth wMah the
world needs to learn.
Cheap labor cheapens the mnssA spir

paid man or wentaa, and la th* ead la
the costliest lahar. A cheap onat breeds
ill-will and lessens a man’s seK-mspect;

as the outward man.
Cheapness finds its meat fertile field
In India, where wages run from t t# 11
cents a day and where Indescribable
poverty and suffering are everywhere in
evidence; in China, where poverty is so
great that millions starve; in Africa and
Japan. But America has blessed the
world by high wages, for by introducing
high wage schedules here it has gradu- '
ally lifted up wages throughout the
world. There are, however, some nar
row, shriveled, money-mad souls or oth
ers. falsely trained In economics, who
believe in low wages, in poverty for the
farmer and the laborer, and In the cheap
coat and the cheap man. They cannot
comprehend that “cheapness” la a
cheapness of soul in themselves, and
they measure humanity only by what
they can make their dollar buy of other
people’s labor and products.
High wages, full salaries, high prices
for farm products are a thousand tlfncs
better than low wages, lew salaries and
low prices for farm products.
