"VIENNA, Aug: 80. Ho many of tho
younc men of Austria and Hungary havo
emigrated to America that the armies
of the dual monarchy task from i,0to to
100,000 soldiers this year to hear aim.
Thene men should be In tho ranks, In

difficulty In setting recruits Is Increasing
Instead ot diminishing, and tho military
authortles of both Austra and Hungary
aro beginning to show their consterna
tion and even their wrath itt this very
serious state of affairs.
The emigration from Austria and
Hungary for the first halt .jf 1013 toMho
United States and Canada ha been un
jireMKlMited. Tho situation !s such thai
the ministers of war of the two state
are today jealously superivslttg the Intro
duction of new emigration laws In the
Parliaments of Vienna and lludniMsc
"When the Austrian Cotncil ot Minister f
j-ecentljr presented the draft of p. hew
bill to the Minister of War, this official
expressed himself as greatly displeased
at tho mildness of tho res'.rli.'Mra de
vised for preventing Austria..! youth
from going abroad.
Farm Labor Scarce.
Farmers In many parts of Austria
and Hungary have long complained that
no labor was procurable, all tho able
bodied young men having emigrated.
The authorities remained compatatlvoly
Indifferent, until today thcy.flnJ that
emigration Is seriously affecting ro
crultlng. Now they are deeply con
cerned. At the last enrollment of recruits on
Sune 30 the Cracow army corps reported
that 83,872 young men fAlled to answer
the military summons, having left the
country. The Frzemysl corps was 28,115
nhort, the Lemberg corps 83,800. In alt
the crown lands large numbers of men
JIable to military service had disappeared,
3t was estimated that 81,000 had gone
from Oallcla and Bukowtnd alone.

tlally serious at the present time when,
owing to changes In the strategical con
dltlons of the Balkan countries, the re
cruiting levy of Austria-Hungary Is about
to be Increased by 40,000 men, Tho nega
tion to Canada is particularly displeasing
to the war ministry, as few of these
emigrants aver return. Over 80,000 men

The Belgian army has, been increased to

els to Antwerp, tho reason given being
that tha iatter city Is more secure in case
t war. Th national archives also havo
len transferred to the fortified metrop
olis for the same reason, a precaution
vhlch would not ordinarily bo taken ex
cept ai a time ot national anxiety. These
vtntft .considered in connection with the
recent moblllcation and seemingly tend
ing to show that the International out
look may sot be a clear as Is generally
aupsosed, have caused much comment tn
quarter section. Things looked cloudy
tor fioullv and his lack.ra.hbtl nrpnervn.
Senator Blllston Insisted on the amend
ment to make It "statute book" instead
of "official stato paper," which would
permit suffering landowners to unload
a little more ot their landscape upon
moneyed foreigners. Senator Osborn de-
mandrnl nil nmpni'.miMit in thn flrat ee-
tlon, whereby tho bill would not affect
existing contracts for tho salo or land
to aliens. That covered Lord Scully's
options. Senator Murdock objected to
that amendment on the grounds that
Lord Scully had contracts tor a lot moro
land In Butler county where ho already
owned too much.
Then Senator If. P. Kclley hopped up
and asked if tho bill would wlp out
Lord Scully's present holdings? Nor
T,hen the 1I1 was' Imperfect, and should
be so amended as to chaso the alien
out of the state. And with a restriction
of one quarter section to each land
hlingry alien the bill passed tho Kansas
senate on January SO, 1SS3, by a vote of
30 yeas and 3 nayas. But, although It Is
hard to find further evidence of the case
In tho old newspaper files, It might bo
gathered that tho bill was cither killed
upon Its second visit to tho senate or
mot with tho disapproval of tho governor,
as the general statutes printed since
that time do not mention Its passage.
When tho Mohler bill got to tho house
It was at tho tall end of tho session. A
certain' Mr. Jones moved that consider
ation thereof be postponed indefinitely,
JIr. Iloch of Marion (name sounds fami
liar), opposed tho motion and wanted the
bill passed right away,
Ho called attention to the fact that an
amendment to tho constitution to the
effect that "ownership of land by aliens
may ba regulated by legislative action"
had carried by over 200,000, and he
thought the bill should bo passed as
amended. (By that time It hud !.,.
amended to a point where it made it all
oui a lynchablo offense for an alien to
own anything but his shoestrings In
Kansas.) And tho bill namiM in w

inings were coming for a fomin in tt,.

olouuence waiting for Lord Scully, but
there was also a largo number of local
mils and personal pets to bo cored for. It
is evident from tho reeom w i..

German Doctor Finds
the Cause and Cure
For Sea Sickness
BERLIN, Aug. 20. The caUsa and tho
cure for seasickness have been discov
ered by a Dr. Fischer of B(t Nauhelm.
according to a report made by the doctor
to the Munich Medical Weeekly.
lie announces that it is the pneumo
gastrlo nerve which makes trouble for
thoso who go down to the sea In ships,
By artificially tickling this nerve ho has
produced seasickness In patients on solid
land, and by giving it an opiate In
tho shupo of an Infinitely small Injection
of atropln he has lulled It to sleep dur
ing an cntlro transatlantc crossing, giv
ing complete relief to tho worst sufferers
In tho stormiest weather. In tho coursa
of a series of experiments, Dr. Fischer
Injected drugs which acted as an irritant
to the pneumogastrlo nerve, and found
that there resulted symptoms precisely
similar to those of seasickness, includ
ing nausea, vomiting, headache, etc.
Shortly thereafter tho physician mado
a trip to American ana return, men
winds and rough seas furnished him
plenty of material, and thero was no
lack of seasick victims, who were willing
to submit to any treatment. The doctor
injected atropln, on- milligram In the case
of men, and thrco-fourth of a milligram
In the case of women. In nearly every
case thero was a rapid disappearance of
all symptoms. Nausea and vomiting dis
appeared within half an hour, and within
three or four hours tho last symptoms
had vanished. Even tho pulse becamo
regulor. Ilenewed and heavier storms
failed to counteract the working of the
drug. In only a few cases wero second
Injections necessary. The drug acted
most tjutckly on patients whoso condltton
was the worst. Dr. Fischer declares that
atropln. In tho smalt quantities necessary,
Is quite harmless.
VETERAN OF THE TREASURY
Womnn Record of Forty-ISIne
Years' Service as Uncle dam's
Elghty-ona years old and rounding out
fifty years ob a government employe
In tho 'Treasury department In Wash
ington Is the record of Miss Emma
Forty-nine years of this service, which
was up April 12, last, was spent in tho
redemption division of Vie treasury, and
despite tho fact that Miss Graves pleaded
to bo left In that division for one year
more, so as to celebrate her golden an
niversary in one division, she was trans
ferred to the register's office. She ntlll
occupies tho position of an .expert
counter, counting notes which havo been
turned In to the government and which
are cut in half before being destroyed.
Miss Graves was among the first
women employes of tho goverrimcnt, a
number having been - placed in service
In 186i by Frank E. Spinner, then treas
urer of tho United States. She camo
from Bloomvlllo, N. Y., fifty threo years
ago, on B, visit to relatives. It was right
at tho beginning of the civil war. Shu
saw some excUlng times in tho city of
Washington. She was persuaded to stay
by her relatives and' take a position in
tho Treasury Department.
'Secretary Chas5 ot the Treasury De
partment was very much opposed to
women employes in tho government serv
ice,' said Miss Graves. "Francis 4.
Spinner, then treasurer of tho United
States, after much persuasion on his
part, finally secured tho permission ot
Secretary Chase to glvo the women a
(rial bm ffnv.mmnii t itlnrlfM Tf hnrl Tlfnr.
(Ically became a necessity for the gov-1
ernmont to employ women All ot tho !
men and boys had gone to war and the
work had to be done, so tho only course
open seemcM to be to glvo the women a
"Mr. Spinner told Secretary Chaso that
If after a trial the women proved satis
factory he would employ more. Then, ot
course, there wasn't much gold and ell
ver. and they had to have more of the
fractional currency, and they used to
have to cut tho money by hand. Mr.
Spinner also pointed out that women
were moro skillful with tho scissors than
the men, and this was another argu
ment why they should bo given a chance.
Tho redemption division was established
at that tlmo on account of tho paper
"Finally, after a year's trial, Treasurer
Spinner went to Secretary Chase and
told him how satisfactory the work of
the women had been, ' and said that ho
hadn't lost a cent, nnd that was moro
than he could say tor the men.
"Wo never forgot Treasurer Spinner.
After his death we felt that wo owed the
appointment of women to him, so the
women contributed to a fund and a mon
umcnt costing 110,000 was bought, It Is
now located In Myers park, Ilorklmor,
N. Y. Wo mado several attempts to get
permission to place tho monument on the
front steps of tho treasury, but the off!
clals refused on the ground that It would
furnish a precedent.
"The appointment of women to the
government servlco at that time, in my
opinion, opened many fields for them.
Before that time they had never thought
of leaving home, and all they did was to
get .ready to marry,"
Miss Graves is yet active, despite her
81 years. She gets about just as quickly
as many of tho younger clerks in tho de
partment. She Is tho eldest of three
sisters, tho only members of her family
now living. Her father and brother both
served tn iho union army during the civil
war, both In tho Ninety-seventh New
York, familiarly known as "Conkllng8
lltflemcn," named for Senator Conkllng.
Her brother, she said, at tho time he en
listed as a drummer boy was so small
that he could not march and he had to
b placed on the baggago wagon. New

WHEN SCULLY WORRIED KAW

Englishman who came to Kansas with

wad, of perfectly good money. In Butler
county ho purchased a large tract ot

tracts. And the preservers ot the ge
lorious commonwealth decided that Lord
Scully was & menace to the nation. At
the next session ot the legislature.
January, 1SS9, senate bill 79, an aci to
restrict the ownership of land by aliens
In this state, was Introduced. It, was
propagated and defended by a Senator
Mohler, and restricted any person not a
vi me unuea mates to one
quarter section of land. But tha bill
met some opposition. Senator Elliston
observed that thero wero some settlers
In western Kansas who had land to sell.
and that they would as soon sell it to
aliens as to native sons, and a Utfie
ooner, maybe, because some ot the
aliens had purchase money, a form ot
portable property which was blamed
