Kraizer Springs
Make Rough Roads Seem Smooth
Made extra lough and extra flexible for middle west roads
ORDINARY springs aren't strong enough or flexible enough
for the fierce bumps and ruts of middle west roads. Kratzer
springs are made unusually strong and easy riding. Itcosts a
lot extra to put Cambria steel into our springs. But it pays. You never
hear of Kratzer Springs snapping, and they are the easiest riding of all.
Kratzer Vehicles Are Built for Western Roads
Eastern roads aren't as rough as ours. Eastern-made or cheap buggies aren't
strong enough for heavy western tor.ds and soon go to pieces. Kratzer buggies
are made extra strong by UMng best wood-stock and the special reinforced
Kratzer construction. Many are still in ue after 10, 15 and 20 years of service.
They are the strongest, most comfortable and most
btautiful vehicles money can buy.
Ccme and See Our Line of Kratzers
Let us point out the many ways wherein they are
made extra strong. See how handsome and up-to-date
theyare. Get our prices. They will surprise you, when
you think or the quality. ou see we are not

Visit of Wilson's Envoy Clarifies
Understanding Between the
Two Nations.
Berlin, via London, Jan. 30.
Colonel Edward M. House, President
Wilson's personal representative, has
left Berlin for Paris and London by
way of Switzerland. Prior to his de
parture, though declining to be quoted
with any particularity on the results
of his mission, Colonel House said he
was very glad he had come to Berlin
and added that the conversations
which he had had with leading Ger
man statesmen and permanent men in
private life, and particularly his con
ference with Ambassador Gerard, had
been most profitable and would un
doubtedly lead to a clarification of
German-American relations.
It may be said that Colonel House,
upon whom interv iews with several of
Germany's leading statesmen left a
most agreeable impression, will report
to the president on the attitude of
these statesmen toward America an
attitude which has been described as
one of friendliness and a desire to
avoid any complications with the
United States so far as is compatible
with Germany's vital interests and in
ternal harmony and he will be able
to support and supplement Ambassa
dor Gerard's report by personal dec
larations made with the foreknowl
edge that they will go direct to the
It is presumed that the German
leaders now have a clearer compre
hension of the limits and intents of
President Wilson's policy and par
ticularly of the ideas he has for a
working arrangement, harmonizing as
far as possible With the interests of
neutrals and the two belligerent
groups. It is interesting to note that
many Germans, especially those in
terested in foreign affairs, are seeking
enlightment from all possible
sources in an endeavor to figure out
which group President Wilson had in
mind in the reference to his recent
speech to the uncertainty of the in
ternational relations of the United
States tomorrow.

Thirty Are Injured First Teutonic
Air Raid on French Capital
Since March, 1915.
"Last December I had a very severe
cold and was nearly down sick in bed.
I bought two bottles of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy and it was only a very
few davs until I was completely re
stored to health " writes O. J. Metcalf,
Weatherby, Mo. If you would know the
value of the remedy, ask any one who
has used it. Obtainable everywhere.
Paris, Jan. 29. Twelve persons
were killed and thirty injured in a
Zeppelin raid on Paris tonight. This
is the first raid by German airships
on the French capital since March,
1913, when two Zeppelins dropped a
score of bombs.
Warning of the approach of the Zep
pelins was first given at 9:40 p. m.,
when aeroplane scouts reported sight
ing the hostile craft. All lights in
the city were immediately ordered ex
tinguished. The city was plunged into
darkness in anticipation of the attack.
The Zeppelins, however, penetrated
the outer aerial defenses and dropped
several bombs.
An early statement by the prefect
of police said one building was struck
and two persons crushed to death by
the bombs. Later reports increased
the casualties.
In all, five bombs were dropped.
Three were hurled down from the
Zeppelin which made an attack at
midnight and exploded with deadly
force. Two were dropped earlier in
the evening, soon after the first
warning was given.
Two Attacks?
From the above it- would appear
that two separate attacks were made
by the Germans though the cable dis
patch does not state whether one or
more Zeppelins took part in the raid.
The fact that the prefect of police
at first announced only two victims
and a later statement reported twelve
killed and thirty injured, also in
dicates that after possibly being
driven off on the first attack the
Zeppelin returned and did more dead
ly execution than in the initial at
tempt. A year ago the French organized
defenses against Zeppelin raids j.hat
were considered so effective as to re
duce the danger of attack from the
sky to a minimum. Squadrons of
French aviators were stationed at all
approaches to the city and airmen pa
trolled the sky about Paris in relays
each night.
II. A. Funke, the Louisville lumber
