AN INTOLERABLE ITCHING
"Just about two years ago, some
form of humor appeared on my scalp.
The beginning was a slight itching but
It grew steadily worse until, when I
combed my hair, the scalp became
raw and tho ends of the comb-teeth
would bo wet with blood. Most of the
time thero was an Intolerable Itching,

"Sometimes the pain was so great
that, when partially awake, I would
scratch the worst places so that my
finger-tips would be bloody. I could
not sleep well and, after being asleep
a short time, that awful stinging pain
would commence and then I would
wake up nearly wild with the torture.
A neighlior said it must be salt rheum.
Having used Cuticura Soap merely as
a toilet soap before. I now decided to
order a set of the Cuticura .Remedies
Cuticura Soap, Ointment and Pills.
I used them according to directions
for perhaps six weeks, then left off,
as the disease seemed to bo eradi

months ago, thero was a slight re

menced the Cuticura treatment at
once, so had very little trouble. On
my scalp I used about one half a cake
of Cuticura Soap and half a bos of

time I took six or seven bottles of Cu

Berlin. Ex-President Theodore
Roosevelt appeared Thursday before
an audience that tested the capacity
of the aula at the University of Berlin,
and delivered a lecture on "The World
Movement" He spoke in English and
was listened to with the deepest In
terest Beginning with an eloquent eulogy
of the German race and its achieve
ments, the lecturer soon reached the
main theme of his discourse, and re
viewed the civilization and culture, so
far as we know them, of the earliest
peoples and their contributions to the
modern world. He then continued:
At last, a little over 400 years
ae;o. the movement towards a world civili
cation took up Its Interrupted march. The
beginning or the modern movement may
roughly be taken as synchronizing with

Into what Is almost a health resort. Every
progressive In China Is striving to Intro
duce western methods of education and
administration, and hundreds of European
and American books are now translated
Into Chinese. The influence of European
governmental principles Is strikingly Il
lustrated by the fact that admiration for
them has broken down the Iron barriers of
Moslem conservatism, so that their Intro
duction has become a burning question la
Turkey and Persia: while the very unrest,

and shortcomings were plentiful among

Wealth and Polities.
Another striking contrast In tha courss
of modern civilization as compared with
the later stages of the Graeco-Roman or
classic civilization Is to be found In tha
relations of wealth and politics. In clas
sic times; as the civilization advanced to
ward Its zenith, politics became a recog
nized means of accumulating great
wealth. Caesar was again and again ca
the verge of bankruptcy: he spent a
enormous fortune: and he recouped him
self by the money which he made out of
his political-military career. Augustus es
tablished Imperial Rome on Arm founda
tions by the use he made of the hugs
fortune he had acquired by plunder. What
a contrast Is offered by Che careers of
Washington and Lincoln! Tnere were a
few exceptions In ancient days; but tha
Immense majority of the Greeks and tha
Romans, as their civilizations culminated,
accepted money-making on a large seals
as one of the Incidents of a successful
public career. Now all of this Is in sharp
contrast to what has happened within
the last two or three centuries. During
this time there has been a steady growth
away from the theory that money-making
Is permissible to an honorable public ca
reer. In this respect tha standard has been
constantly elevated, and things which
statesmen had no hesitation in dolus;

IT WEARS YOU OUT.
May's last special day comes on the
thirtieth Memorial day. It is worthy
of recognition by every loyal American
citizen and should be a dsy honored
reverently by old and young.
It fa, with all its sadness, a day of
great thankfulness, inasmuch as the
"gray and blue" are united as one man
under the glorious Stars and Stripes.
An occasion of unusual interest Is
being planned for next Saturday night
by a devoted daughter of an old sol
dier. It is to be a "camp fire" to
which six men of the Loyal Legion are
bidden as honored guests. Each man
Is requested to relate a war story of
ten minutes duration from his actual
experience, and each ls to wear some
thing (If he has anything) that he
wore during the war. The host ls to
receive In his uniform (captain's), that
was made for him In a southern city
nearly half a century ago.
The rooms are to be decorated with
flags and pictures of war heroes, and
there is to be a big wood blaze hi the
fireplace. The refreshments are to be
hard-tack, coffee, grilled bacon sand
wiches, pie, doughnuts, pickles and

Instead of twin? directed by one or two
dominant peoples, as was the case with
all similar movement of the past, the
new movement was shared by many dif
ferent nations. From every standpoint It
has been of Infinitely greater moment
than anything hitherto seen. Not In one
but In many different peoples there has
oeen extraordinary growth in wealth. In
population. In power of organization, and
In mastery over mechanical activity and
natural resources. All of this has been
accompanied and signalized by an Im
mense outburst of energy and restless
Initiative. The result Is varied as It ls
Conquest of the World.
Tn the first place, representatives of this
civilization, by their conquest of space,
were enabled to spread into all the prac

same time, by their triumphs In organiza
tion and mechanical Invention, they ac
quired an unheard-of military superiority
as compared with their former rivals. To
these two farts Is primarily due the
further fact that for the first time there
Is really something that approaches a

, represents something wholly different
j from what has ever hitherto been seen.
In the greatest days of Roman dominion
I the Influence of Rome was felt over only
a relatively small portion of the world's
surface. Over much the larger part of the
j world the process of change and develop
ment was absolutely unaffected by any
thing that occurred in the Roman empire:
and those communities the play of whose
Influence was felt In action and reaction,
and In Inter-action, among themselves,
were grouped Immediately around the
Mediterranean. Now. however, the whole
world Is bound together as necr before:
the bonds are sometimes those of hatred
rather than love, but they are bonds
All the Nations Linked.
Frowning or hopeful, every man of lead
ership In any line of thought or effort
must now look beyond the limits of his
own country. The student of sociology
may live In Berlin or St. Petersburg.
Rome or London, or he may live in Mel
bourne or San Francisco or Buenos Aires:
but In whatever city he live"- he must pay
heed to the studies of men who live In
each of the other cities. When In Amor
lea we study labor problems and attempt
to deal with subjects such as life Insur
ance for wase-worKers. we turn to see
what you do here in Germany, and we
also turn to see what the far-off com
monwealth of New Zealand is do'ns.

against the most dreaded enemies of man

and at the same time knowledge has

dreamed of before. Old men among us
have seen In their own generation the
rise of the first rational science of the
evolution of life. The astronomer and the
chemist, the psychologist and the his
torian, and all their brethren In many dif
ferent fields of wide endeavor, work with
a training and knowledge and method
which are In effect Instruments of pre
cision differentiating their labors from
the labors of their predecessors as the
rifle Is differentiated from the bow.
The play of new forces Is as evident In
the moral and spiritual world as la the
world of the mind and the body.
One Danger of Civilization.
One of the prime dangers of civilization
has always been Its tendency to cause
the loss of the virile fighting virtues, of
the fighting edge. When men get too com
fortable and lead too luxurious lives there
is always danger lest the softness eat like
an arid Into their manliness of fiber. The
barbarian, because of the very conditions
of his life, is forced to keep and develop
certain hardy qualities which the man of
civilization tends to lose, whether he be
clerk, factory hand, merchant or even a
certain type of farmer. Now I will not
assert that In modern civilized society
these tendencies have been wholly over
come: but there has been a much more
successful effort to overcome them than
was tne case in the early civilizations.
This Is curiously shown by the military
history of the Graeco-Roman period as
compared with the history of the last four
or five centuries here In Europe and
among nations of European descent. In
the Grecian and Roman military history
the change was steadily from a citizen
army to an army of mercenaries, in the
days of the early greatness of Athens.
Thebes, and Sparta. In the days when the
Roman republic conquered what world ft
knew, the armies were filled with citizen
soldiers. But gradually the citizens re
fused to serve In the armies, or became
unable to render good service. The Greek
states described by Polyblus. with but few
exceptions, hired others to do their fight
ing for them. The Romans of the days of
Augustus had utterly ceased to furnish
any cavalry, and were rap'dly ceasing to
iumisn any inrantry. to the legions and
cohorts. When the civilization came to
an end. there were no longer citizens in
the ranks of the soldiers. The change
from the citizen army to the army of
mercenaries had been completed.
Modern Citizens' Armies.
Now. the exact reverse has been the
case with us in modern times. A few
centuries ago the mercenary soldier was
the principal figure In most armies, and In
Brrui nuinoera or coses tne mercenary
euiuier was an alien,
llgion In France. In
war In Germany. In the wars that lmme.
dlately marked the beginning of the
break-up of the great Polish kingdom, the
regiments and brigades of foreign sol
diers formed a striking and leading fea
ture In every army. Too often the men
of the country In which the fighting took
place played merely the Ignoble part of
victims, the burghers and peasants ap
pearing in but limited numbers In the
mercenary armies by which they were
plundered. Gradually this has all changed,
until now practically every army is a
citizen nrmy. nnd the mercenary has al
most disappeared, while the army exists
on a vaster scale than ever before In his
tory. This is so among the military mon
archies of Europe,
In our own Civil war of the United
States the same thing occurred, peaceful
people as we are. At that time more than
two generations had passed since the
War of Independence. During the whole
of that period the people had b-en en
gaged in no life-and-death struggle: nnd
yet. when the Civil war broke out. and
after some costly and bitter lessons at
the bginnlng. the fighting sp!rlt of the
perpie was shown to better advantige
than ever before. The war was peculiar-

Mr. Roosevelt called attention to
the fact that hitherto every civiliza

develop only a few activities, its field
of endeavor being limited in kind an
well as In locality, and each of thesA
civilizations has fallen. What Is tha
lesson to us of today? he asked. Will
