While both Secretary I-anlng and

possibility of war attributed to Treat

denied by the White House, It waa
learned today that mention of the result
of a break of diplomatic relations had
been discussed quit casually and Infor

nothing of the kind ever would occurr.
" Tha ambassador pointed out that with

would constitute a just and aufflolent
cause of war between the Uulted Statea

Several senators explained that the
double form of th question waa raspon
' alble for the character of the vote, as
few senators wanted to vote on the ques
tion regarding a cause for war.
Immediately after the vote in the
senate Senator Reed, democrat, read a

AS WE GROW OLDER
our minds are quite as active as in
former years but our strength does not
respond when we need it most; perhaps
the kidneys are weak, the liver torpid,
rheumatic pains or stiffened joints
beset us, and we cannot easily throw
off the colds that winter brings.
What we need is the rich cod liver oil
in Scott's Emulsion to renew the blood
and carry strength to every organ of the
body,while its glycerine soothes theres
piratory tract, and its hypophosphites
strengthen the excitable nerves.
Scott's Emulsion is a scientific oil
food, of unusual benefit to those past
fifty years particularly during the
colder seasons, it imparts warmth and
creates strength. On bottle wilt prove
Its worth. No alcohol or harmful drugs.
