foreign office invited all the neutral
journalists now in Berlin to a secret
conference to hear a statement by
Alfred Zimmermann, the foreign min
ister, and William von Sturm, under
secretary for foreign affairs, on Ger
many's war aims. The German press
protests that neutrals have been thus
favored, while the German newspa
pers are hardly allowed to express
an opinion on the subject."

shut my eyes on account of the terrible
itching and tremendous burning.

SHOOT AGAINST U.S.
IN RUSSIAN CAPITAL
Soldiers Prevent Demonstra.
tion Before American Em
bassy in Petrograd.
HEADED BY NIKOLAI LENTO
Petrograd, April 23. (Via London,
ADril 25.) An effort by a small
groun of ultra radicals to make an uti
friendly demonstration before the
American embassy today was frus
trated by militiamen as the radicals
marched down the Nevsky Prospect
on their way to the embassy.
The demonstration was headed by
N'ikolai Lenig. the radical socialist
leader, who recently arrived here
through Germany from Switzerland
with a safe conduct from the German
authorities. The demonstration is
said to have been due to the alleged
killing in America of an anarchist
named Mooney, who was under sen
tence in San Francisco.
A guard was sent by the authorities
to protect the embassy.
The Mooney referred to in the
foregoing probably is Thomas J.
Mooney, who is under sentence of
'i for connection with the bomb
A -,ion in July, 1916, in which sev
c. persons were killed.

(By Dr. W. C. Lucas.)
What drives the men right up to
the trenches in this war is courage,
and it's red blood that "puts the
heart" in the man. Did any one ever
see a puny, thin-blooded man ever
rush into the fight with any chance
of winning out? With rich, pure
blood you can face any hardship,
reach any goal. But you are handi
capped in the race of life without it.
Every tissue, bone, muscle, should
take from the blood certain materials
and return to it certain others. This
process Insures perfect health. When
the poisons accumulate in the blood,
perhaps the face breaks out in pim
ples, or boils appear on the neck, and
we feel languid, tired, our vitality is
at a low ebb, and we easily catch
It's time to take an alterative ex
tract and blood-purifier taken from
Nature's forests. Such a one is
made up of Golden Seal, Blood and
Stone root, Oregon Grape and
Queen's root extracted with glycer
ine and made into sugar-coated tab
lets or liquid, and this has been sold
by druggists for the past titty years
as Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery. It's always efficacious in
the spring when the blood is run
down and you need a wholesome
tonic. Try this old-fashioned but re
liable remedy, without alcohol!
If you are occasionally troubled
with rheumatic pains or lumbago,
pain in the back, toes or muscles of
the body, this is due to uric acid
stored in the system. The liver and
kidneys do not act properly. For
such a person, I advise taking Anuric
(double strength) three times daily
for a week or two. This Anuric
throws out the uric acid which accu
mulates, and if taken occasionally
will prevent or cure rheumatism and
gout. There is no difficulty in ob
taining Anuric at any drug store.
IT'S YOUR KIDNEYS
You havft swollen feet and hands! Stiff,
achy Joints! Sharp-hootinr rheumatic pains
torture you. Tou have aching back, pain In
the lower abdomen, difficulty when urinat
ing! Look out) Theae are danger fgnala.
Trouble la with your kldneyi. Uric acid
polionlng. In one form or another, has set
In. It may lead to dropsy or fatal Bright'
dlieais If not checked.
Get some GOLD MEDAL Haarlem Oil
Capsules Immediately. They are an old prep
aration, used all over the world for cen
turies, combining natural healing oil and
herbs, well-known to physicians and used by
thousands in their dally practice. The Cap
sules are not an experimental, make shift
patent medicine," or "salt," whose effect Is
only temporary. They are a standard rem
edy, and act naturally, gently and quickly.
But when you go to the druggist, Insist on
getting the pure, original Haarlem Oil In
Capsules. Be sure the name GOLD MEDAL
Is on the box, and thus protect yourself
against counterfeit. Advertisement.
It is far better to have n empty
purse, a good stomach and be hun
gry, than to have wealth, no appetite
and indigestion. There is wealth and
health in a well, strong and hungry
stomach. Then think what Duffy's
Pure Malt Whiskey does to promote
digestion. In tablespoonful doses be
fore meals, it stimulates the mucous
surfaces and little glands of the stom
ach to healthy action, assisting diges
tion and assimilation work so that the
food vou eat gives the body the great
est amount of fuel and tissue-building
sunnlics. The mild and tome effect
of Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey is spe
cially adapted to the use ot persons
with diseased or delicate stomachs,
for it invigorates the nervous mechan
ism of that organ, which is the su
preme test of its virtues. Thus with
a firm grip on digestion and assimila
tion, you get back the proper balance
of their functions and you will know
the pleasure of eating whatever the
palate selects. Because it has af
forded relief to thousands of sufferers
from indigestion and the kindred ills
of digestion, the advice to "Get Duf-
fvs and Keen Well should prompt
all stomach sufferers to like action.
Sold by most druggists, grocers and
dealers. $1.00. If they can't supply
