from "Warsaw says that a special
train carrying the peace delegates
of the central powers has passed
through there on the way to Brest
Litovsk. f On the invitation of the German
foreign minister, Dr. von Kuehl
man, Prof. Emil Oplik, an. artist, will
go to Brest-Litovsk to sketch the as
sembled peace delegates.
Although the peace conference be
tween representatives of the Eolshe
viki government and the central pow
ers was due to reconvene Friday, no
news has come through indicating
whether the meeting took place.
;Xeither have there been any advices
whether the difficulties in the way of 5
'reaching- an agreement have been
surmounted, or in concessions by

Dissatisfaction with the proposals
cf ike central. powers apparently does
not obtain solely on tlie side of the
Bolsheviki government, but exists
-among the delegates of the central
powers as well.
Dirclosures cf details cf the Erest-I-itovsk
conference makes it clear
that Germany assumed a domineer
ing attitude, while Austria, Bulgaria
and Turkey were conciliatory and
disagreed with the arrogant position
of the Germans.
There were di fferences also among
the German delegates during the
meeting. Foreign Minister von
Kuehlniann and General Hoffman
elasaed openly. Germany posed con
stantly as a conqueror while its
three allies showed eagerness for
peace and a disposition to compro
mise. The attitude of the German social
ists against the demands of the cen
tral rowers, especially those provid

pied territory,' has forced the imper

The men made their get-away and
nothing was heard from them since.
Until the other day a letter wa? re

Texas, addressed to the ciy mTbnll

that he has just been li'rp' 1
jail at that place and that he had a

: CLAIMS PLAN IS FUEL-SAVER:
I'roin Saturday's Daiiy.
John Brady, who has tried this
plan and found it to work well, offers
is as a way to get by the hard propo
sition of high price and scarcity of
coal. He advises anyone to get a good
fire in the beginning and when so
done to make a cone of ashes in the
center of the Hre, which will pre
vent the heat from escaping out of
the chimney, and throw it to the
side of the stove or furnace, where
it comes in contact with the side, and
is thus utilized, where it would not
otherwise have been, and in this
manner a large portion of the fuel
can be saved and still the same
amount of beat obtained. When feed
ing additional fuel to the fire later,
scatter it about the edges instead of
placing it in the middle.
