Washington, Feb. 28. Despite the
fact that Mrs. V. L. Colt, a promi
nent New York society leader, has
arrived to ocgin her turn at picket
ing the White Houte, bearing with
her the approval of New York suf
frage leaders, there is disntion in
the Congressional Union for woman
suffrage. Many of the more promi
nent women are opposed to the "silent
sentinel" plan of forcing suffrage on
the attention of the president, at the
present time especially, when the
country faces the possibility of war.
Others are in favor of continuing the
picketing, v.i or no war. It had been
hoped that the arrival of Mrs. Colt,
apparently bearing the approval of
New York leaders, would win over the
dissatisfied ones to the more militant
policy of continuing the silent march
outside the White House.
Pinched and Sentenced

Five minutes after Thomas Auter,
2214 Seward street, colored, had been
arrested on a charge of hitting E. P.
Furniss, 2221 Willis avenue, and
breaking his glasses, he was sentenced
to forty days in the workhouse.- Fur
niss, who is a Union Pacific dining car
steward, testified that he fired Auter
when the latter reported for work in
toxicated. Auter, he said, took offense
and hit him in the face, smashing his
glasses and slightly injuring his eyes.

All because a half-peck of potatoes
were stolen from the kitchen or the
cellar of a family newly arrived in the
Georgia avenue neighborhood, be
tween PoDnleton avenue and Pacific
street, said neighborhood is excited.
such commotion was caused when
the theft was discovered that dogs
barked, chickens cackled, and children
were late to school on account of
standing around to hear parents dis

accused one another. They dragged

in that neighborhood a year ago,"
said Drueseclow, "and there was not

cidently shook the contents ;f her
pocketbook into the snow a few
weeks ago, and lost most of her

on who was selling liquor after 8
o'clock, but he could furnish ro clue

Eat Less Meat ,

Take Glass of Salta to flush Kid

Drink lots of water.
Eating meat regularly eventually
produces kidney trouble in some form
or other, says a well-known authority,
because the uric acid in meat excites
the kidneys, they become overworked:
get sluggish; clog up and cause all
sorts of distress, particularly backache
and misery in the kidney region; rheu
matic twinges, severe headaches, acid
stomach, constipation, torpid liver,
sleeplessness, bladder and urinary ir
ritation. The moment your back hurts or kid
neys aren't acting right, or if bladder
bothers you, get about four ounces
of Jad Salts from any good pharmacy;
take a tabtespoonful in a glass of
water before breakfast for a few days
and your kidneys will then act fine.
This famous salts is made from the
acid of grapes and lemon juice, com
bined with lithia, and has been used
for generations to flush clogged kid
neys and stimulate them to normal ac
tivity; also to neutralise the acids in
the urine so it no longer irritates, thus
ending bladder disorders.
Jad Salts cannot injure anyone;
