SUSTAINING A REPUTATION'.
It is a noble goal to get a good rep
utation, but much nobler it is to sus
tain it. The cases of abusing and de
ceiving the favorable public opinion
are too frequent in our days. Rut re
member: Triner's American Elixir of
Rittc-r Wine will never disappoint its
friends. That is why the afflux of
thankful letters is so steady. Read
this: "Ilaselton Station, Youngstown,
O. I suffered from pains in my stom
ach for twenty-three years. I spent a
lot of money without result. I was so
weakened that I was near death and
there seemed to be no help for me.
Then a drutrgist said: Take Triner's
American Elixir of Bitter Wine. I
foi lowed his advice, and soon my con
dition was so improved, as if I was
born anew to this world, and now I
am well. Let everybody do the same.
From the bottom of my heart I thank
you for all that. Jacob Novovol."

The government is still waiting for
some act of Germany which might
make relations suddenly more serious,
but it was stated last night after the
cabinet meeting that nothing had oc
curred to change that attitude. The
next step of the United States, if one
shrudd be neee-ssary, would be taken
without add.: er '"ng any eomm irucation
to G.rmary, it was de.-kaed authori
tatively. Congress an 1 all executive depait

for any eventuality.
A break with Austria seemed to de

proving the break with Germany was
to.be called up today. Its adoption
appeared certain but not without de
bate which promised to be dramatic.
