Four Officials Detained as
Hostage for Consul Mueller,
NOT DELAYED BY THE V. S.
Hudson Exhibit by Guy Smith at the Auto S how
Washigton, Feb. 28. Four Amer
can consuls are being detained in Ger
many, while the Berlin government
awaits official advices that all German
consuls in this country, ordered to
Central li d South America, have been
permitted to proceed.
The German government's action is
based on circumstances which, through
no fault of the United States, de
tained Consul Mueller at Havana,
Cuba, while he was on his way from
Atlanta to Quito, Ecuador.
The American consuls detained in
Germany are Consul Henry C. P.
IJamm, transferred from Aachen to
Harput, Turkey; Consul John Q.
Wood, transferred from Chemniti to
Messina; Vice Consul W. Bruce Wal
lace, transferred from Magdeburg to
Constantinople; Vice Consul C. Innes
lirown. transferred from Mannheim to
. Two notes have been received from
the German government on the sub
ject; the first a week ago. charging
tiiat the United .States had detained
Mueller at Havana, and a second to
day, asking for a reply to the first and
also containing a statement on
charges that American consuls and
their wives departing from Germany
had been subjected to indignities. It
added that as soon as Mueller had
been allowed to proceed, the Amer
ican consuls could go on.
That the German government has
been misinformed regarding Consul
Mueller and other German consuls
L. .x- :
formerly stationed in the United
States, is certain. The departure of
none has been hindered by this gov
ernment. Mueller was forced to re
main in Havana longer than he at
first thought would-be necessary, and
he cabled Berlin that he was detained
there. The German government is
believed to have taken this to mean
that the United States was responsible
for the detention.
As a matter of fact Mueller was
forced to rerhr.in in Hava?.-. because
of temporary lack of transportation
and failure to receive passports from
the Ecuadorean government. He left
Havana for his new post several days
ago. ' '
In the note received today, Ger
many complains against published re
ports recently cabled to the United
States from The Hague, in which it
was stated that American consular
officials leaving Germany had been
mistreated. It is stated that every
thing possible was done to provide
for the comfortable and safe departure
of the American officials and blame
for the alleged misrepresentations is
placed upon Vice Consul Harold F.
Quarton, formerly at Berlin, whom
Germany believes to have been the
only consular official in The Hague

Americans, the same as citizens of

were crossing the frontier.

A French physiologist described man as "digestive tube
with arrangements tor locomotion and guidance." It Is
commonly said that most people " dig their grave) with
their teeth." The disastrous effects of constipation have
always been well known. Jt is easily understood bow
serious are the troubles which aro caused bv stagnation of
decayed matter in the large intestines poison reabsorbed
I and taken into the circulation this is called auto-intoxication.
It is apparent, therefore, that the first necessity is
to cleanse the intestines thoroughly.
The best method for cleansing the whole intestinal (ran
I and ursine the liver into activity is to take as much outdoor
f exercise as possible, drink hot water before meals, and take a
pleasant, laxative, vegetable pill occasionally. Such one
i... is made un of May-apple, leaves of aloe, root of jalap:
tmade into a sugar-coated pill that gives tone to the bowels.
This was first made and sold bv almost, all druggists nearly
f.t,.. . nl,. Pi,.'. PI. .ion Poll.t.
Such simple means will prevent auto-intoxication.
I'copie are realizing tnat tne Kidneys, just
as do the bowels, need to be flushed occa
sionally. The kidneys are an eliminative
organ and are constantly working, separ
ating the poisons from the blood. Uric acid
backs up into the system, causing rheu
matism, neuralgia, dropsy and many other
This can be avoided by stimulat
ing the kidneys to increased action,
and because of its tonio effect on
these organs I would -advise any
hone to purchase Anunc (double or
11 triple strength ), Which is to be had
nowadays at almost any drug store,
..and take it three times a day
L Also drink hot water before mest".
