fatal," she said in Mr. Miller's office

there so that some other mother's boy
will not be shot and maybe killed."

For Winter Being Studied
Washington, Nov. 9. rrospects of
unemployment in various sections of
the country this winter are being
studied by the Council of National
Defense, with a view to distribution
of workmen and contracts so as to
cause a minimum of distress. It was
said today that there was likely to
he unemployment in those districts
having industries manufacturing? non
essentials which require large sup
plies of raw materials and make great
demand on the country's transporta
Its Own Honey;
Guest Is Stung
Storm Lake, la., Nov. 9. (Special.)
When a guest at a hotel here com
plained of being "stung" his room
was searched and a hive of bees and
85 pounds of honey was discovered
under the fooring. Searchers re
ceived many stings. An electrician
had left out a brick when the hotel
was erected and the bees had entered
and hived between the beams.

vA-iuiiv of the structure today. No-vh--re"
else in the city except at the
; Iny institute where the pew gov
, .imeiit has established headquarters
and which was the scene of unusual
activity for this reason, had the new
revolution let its mark.
Even the Winter palace carried no
marks o last night's battle which a
coat of paint and new window panes
would not hide from casual observa
tion. A close inspection of the river
front facade was prevented by the
sailor guards posted on the palace,
but from the nearby palace bridge it
could be plainly seen that theMieavy
guns of the cruiser which bombarded
the palace had done virtually no dam
age. Bullet Holes in Windows.
On the landside however, facing the
circle from which rises the gigantic
pillar of victory and which is flanked
by the arc on which front the foreign
office staff buildings there is plentiful
evidence of the work done by the ma
chine guns and rifles during the struggle.-
The red walls are specked with
white discs, marking tife hits. Scarcely
a window pane is without its cleancut
Throughout all of today the Palace
circle and the surrounding streets
were thronged with joking, laughing
Usual Throngs of Populace.
One Nevsky Prospect, where yes
terday there were machine guns and
armored cars and infantry behind
wooded barricades, today were to be
seen only the usual throngs of the
' populace and there was no excitement
Soldiers, grave but cheerful were
assuming control of various districts.
They sat in barracks at. the commit
tee room listening to complaints and
issuing passes. The fusillades of
rifles and the clattering of machine
guns, with the occasional boom. of
cannon from the fortress or a cruiser
which had continued from early last
night, until the palace surrendered
had been supplanted by the laughter
and shouts of school boys dismissed
from classes and playing in the Plazas.
The congress of soldiers and work
men's delegates today appealed to the
Russian army to stand firm and to
protect the revolution against imperi
alistic attempts until the new govern
ment had obtained a democratic
Palace Takes Offensive.
"The fortress of St. Peter and St.
Paul did not take aggressive steps
against the provisional government
until, fire was opened on the fortress
from the winter palace," said a lieu
tenant at the fortress. "This was
about 8 o'clock in the evening. No
harm was done us, but the bullets
whizzed past the outer works of the
fortress.. - -
"We gave one short volley from a
machine gun in the direction of the
palace. As the firing continued, sail
ors from the cruisers placed guns on
the shore and fired three rounds of
shrapnel into the air above the palace.
After the shooting from the palace
stopped, the commander of the Pre
obrajensky regiment telephoned the
fortress to cease firing, as the palace
wished to surrender, and desired to
know the conditions."
Must Give Up Arms.
"The answer was given," continued
the lieutenant, "that the conditions
were surrender and the giving up of
arms. At 10 o'clock in the evening,
however, the palace fired on the bat
tery of sailors on the shore. The
sailors in answer sent severa shots
against the walls of the palace. The
fortress was only on the defensive
throughout. It made no offensive

battalion was among the defenders of
the palace, but surrendered before the

The correspondent was received at
the fortress in a small room filled
with soldiers who, with the com

battle were being overhauled by me

Minister in Confinement
Regarding the treatment of the
cabinet ministers who were arrested
at the Winter palace after the sur
render, the commissioner at the
fortress of St Peter and St. Paul
"All the cabinet ministers under ar
rest are in solitary confvenment in the
Troubetsky bastion. They may re
ceive letters and papers and any kind
of literature. They are allowed to
write letters but will not be allowed
to see anyone until the inquiry has
taken place. They are permitted to

thing belonging to them except their

Busy Scene at Headquarters.
London, Nov. .9. Scenes in and
abput the Smolny institute, the head
quarters of the workmen's and sol
diers' organization in Petrograd, and
of the revolutionary committee, are
described in a Reuter dispatch dated
Thursday at the Russian capital, as
"The Smolny institute presents a
scene of extraordinary animation.
There is a perpetual coming and go
ing of representatives from the prov
inces participating in the congress,
delegates on the way to convey or
ders to the soldiers, sailors and militia
and the Red Guard. A strong armed
guard occupies the interior and sur
rounds the building, while several ar
mored motor cars bearing anti-aircraft
guns are stationed in adjacent
streets to insure protection to the
"The gardens around the institute
are filled with motor cars with which
to carry the delegates around the
town. Nicolai Lenine, accompanied
by his lieutenant, Zinovieff, received
an enthusiastic reception on his ar
rival. They were scarcely recog
nized, Lenine having shaved off his
moustache and Zinovieff having
grown a beard.
"From the institute the revolution
ary committee is issuing order after
order for the occupation of railway
stations and government institutions.
The orders are promptly obeyed by
the troops and the Red Guard. De
tachments of sailors are arriving from
Kronstadt, while a cruiser and two
torpedo boats are anchored in the
river near the Nicholas bridge."
Paris, Nov. 9. "Those who thought
the Russian revolution had been fin
ished made a mistake," said M. Mak
lakof, the Russian ambassador, in an
interview which appears in the Petit
Tarisieii. "Alas, now the blood of
our "people will flow again in the
streets of Petrograd.
"But, however sad may be the ad
vent to power of the Maximalists, it
can be only a momentary success. In
my opinion it is the supreme effort of
the Maximalists. This desperate at
tempt, this daring stroke, can be
only the signal for their downfall and
organization of the revolution in a
national and patriotic sense, which is
bound to assure victory against ene
mies both within and without.
"Russia as a whole is about to rally
around a national government and
form for it a rampart of flesh and
blood. A radical surgical operation
was perhaps necessary after the mis
understanding caused by General
Korniloff's move, in order to assure
the salvation of immortal Russia."
London, Nov. 9. Reuters corres
pondent at Petrograd says a telegram
from Katian announces that the Gen

troops has been arrested and that,

Too Eat too Much
In Jail is Claim
Washington, Nov. 9. The hunger
strike of woman's party militants in
the jail here has resolved itself into
a dispute over whether the women
were fed forcibly or whether they
took food willingly.
Today woman's party headquarters
announced Alice Paul, the leader, had
been forcibly fed three times since
yesterday afternoon and that Rose
Winslow, her companion, had been
forcibly fed twice. Feeding Miss Paul
three times in a little more than 12
hours, the leaders contended, was un
necessary and inhuman.
Superintendent Zinkham of the jail
freely admitted that Miss Paul had
been fed three times, but denied that
it had been done forcibly.
"There was no forced feeding," said
Dr. J. A. Gannon, the jail physician.
'These women took the food without
resistance and merely want to adver
tise themselves by saying they have
been fed forcibly. Miss Paul s con
dition is not critical; it is not even se
rious. She is doing well."
Woman's party headquarters, how
ever, declared that Miss Paul will die
if the jail authorities continue to feed
that makes one zostful and full of "pep" is some-
thing no one can afford to be without who wants to'
be a success or get out of life what there is really
in it. It is not in the least an exaggeration to say
that we have MANY TIMES effected for patients
a complete change in their outlook upon life by fix
ing their teeth: Poor teeth and good health are
miles apart. Let this counsel sink in and, whether
we or someone else do your work, have any needed
dentistry 'attended to and immediately. If we do
the work it will be guaranteed unreservedly.
