Washington, Nov. 24. President
Wilson's annual message to congress,
now in the hands of the printer, con
tains about 2,000 words and is among
the shortest documents of the kind
on record. It points out that the re
ports of the several government de
partments will be made before con
gress separately and that, therefore,
their details are not discussed.
The president emphasizes the un
completed legislation on railroads
suggested by him at the last session
to meet the threatened railroad strike
as the most pressing problem facing
congress. He then goes on to a gen
eral discussion of other domestic

,0N SOAPJOX HOPES
Madero'g Start Was on Gutter
Stand, Author Tells Com
AGAIN CENSUSES YANKEES
"Why do the people listen to the
soap-box orator? Why are they so
eager to hear? It is because they bear
a message of hope, and there are so
many people who have nothing else
in this world, they must have hope
or they perish." This was the com
ment of Lincoln Steffens, journalist
and lecturer, in his talk on Mexico
before the Commercial club at noon.
He was discussing Madcro and his
soap-box oratory when that young
man was working up the Mexican
"And so the- people will listen to
the man whn talks ifrnm thp anan.
will follow him. They will follow the
anarchist or anyone who speaks of
hope to them, until you, jtheir real
leaders, can be persuaded to listen
to their wants and take hold and
lead them true."
The speaker reviewed the life of
Madero, who, as a young man studied
abroad, and came home with new
ideas. "Madero got a soap-box," said
Mr. Steffens, 'and began to gather
crowds about him and tell them of
a hope of better conditions. He told
them they could elect a president of
their own; he knew people could do
that, because he had seen it done in
the United States and in France. The
people said he was crazy. They said
he was a beautiful fool. He told them
they could get a constitution back.
They told him he was crazy. He was
thrown in jail, but always he got out
and he did not break out.
Angels? No, Brutes.
"Already there are traditions down
there that angels let him out. But we
have muckrakers and reporters nowa
days, and so I ran some of these
things down. I can assure you thc
were not angels who let him out.
They were cruel, Spanish jailers, who
one would think could not be moved
by anything. 1 asked one of them
why he let Madero out, and he said
because he was so beautiful. He did
not mean beautiful to look at. He
meant his ideas were beautiful."
The speaker blamed .Americans for
much of the trouble in Mexico, re
peating what he said in his lecture
last night, that Americans incited and
financed the tirst revolution there and
every counter revolution since thai

This Simple Laxative
A Household Necessity
Dr. Caldwell' Syrup Pepsin
Should Have a Place in
- Every Home.
Constipation or inaction of the
bowels, a condition that nearly every
one experiences with more or less
frequency, is the direct cause of much
disease. When' the bowels become
clogged with refuse from the stomach,
foul gases and poisons are generated,
and unless the congestion is quickly
relieved the system becomes weak
ened and most suscepliblc to attar!;.
Various remedies to relieve consti
pation arc prescribed, but many of
these contain cathartic or purgative
agents that are harsh and violent in
their action and shock the system.
The most effective remedy is the com
bination of simple laxative herbs with
pepsin that is sold in drug stores un
der the name of Dr. Caldwell's Syrup
The Hon. John D. Kcister of tlran
dywine. W. Vs., who has represented
his district in the State Legislature for
six years, writes that he uses Dr.
Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin and finds it
a splendid laxative, easy to take and
mild, yet positive in its action, and
that it should be in every household
for use when needed.
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is sold
by druggists in all parts of the United
States and costs only fifty cents a
bottle. It contains no opiate or nar
cotic drug, does not gripe, and is
recommended as a family laxative.
mild enough for die tiniest babe, yet
sufficiently powerful to act easily on
the strongest constitution.
To avoid imitations and ineffective
substitutes be sure to get Dr. Cald
well's Syrup Pepsin. Sec that a fac
simile of Dr. Caldwell's signature and
his portrait appear on the yellow car
ton in which the bottle is packed. A
trial bottle, free of charge, can be ob
tained by writing to Dr. W. B. Cald
