0. S. EMBASSY FLEES
Norwegian Consul Now in
Charge of American
Affairs at Petro
grad.' (By Associated Frets.)
The American consul in Petrograd,
who remained in the Russian capital
after the departure of Ambassador
Francis and his staff, also Has -left,
and the consulate has been taken over
by the Norwegian consul. It is felt
in Stockholm that the situation in
Petrograd has taken an unexpected
turn for the worse.
Although the American, British and
French embassies have left Petrograd
under the menace of the German ad
vance, the bolshevik government is
reported as intending to return to its
headquarters in that city after having
temporarily left the capital.
Apparently the Japanese ambas
sador is still in Petrograd, having
postponed his , departure, an agency
dispatch states, because of nego
tiations going on between him and
the Russian government. Whether
these reported negotiations have any
thing to do -with the Japanese pro
posals for intervention in Siberia is
not evident from the meager advices
Meanwhile the current reports from
Petrograd indicate a renewal of the
German forward movement in Rus
sia, although at a more measured
On two sectors of the western front,
American soldiers have successfully
countered the tactics of the enemy.
Northwest of Toul American gunners
have wiped out the German batteries
which bombarded the American posi
tions earlier in the week with gas
shells. Along the Chemin-des-Dames
American machine guns and artillery
fire repulsed a strong enemy attack
Airmen Locate Batteries.
Airplanes having located the batter
ies, whose gas shells had caused' six
deaths and the poisoning of 80 others,
the heavy guns in the American line
destroyed the enemy positions in a
half hour's shelling.
Material was thrown high in the air
and several explosions were caused
by the accuracy of the American fire.
The Germans are believed to have Suf
fered casualties during the bombard
ment. A heavy barrage fire preceded' the
German attack on the Chemin-des-Dames.
As the enemy advanced they
were met by a hail of machine gun
bullets and then came a deluge of
shells. The Germans retreated hast
ily. Five French soldiers were
wounded in the fighting, but there
were no American casualties.
This sector also has been subjected
to German gas attacks, which, how
ever, were not as enective as on the
sector east of St Mihiel. On the
British and French fronts there has
been no change. In Italy small patrol
and artillery actions continue.
Learn From the Cemetery;
No One Worries There
In an article in the March American
Magazine one man says to another,
who was very sensitive and worried
a great deal:
"'Exactly,' he grunted. 'A few
years ago they were live men like
you and me. They grew up and did
their business and loved and married
and died. Some of them passed hap
pily along their way, believing the
best of their fellows, doing their jobs
whole-heartedly and well, spreading a
bit of sunshine among the folks they
came into contact with,- extracting
every drop of sweetness trom every
single day. And others went through,
wrapped up inside their own little
selves, envying their neighbors, fancy
ing themselves abused, worrying over
trifles, always on the lookout for
slights, spoiling a full 50 per cent
of their days through their own petti
ness. And a few days pass, and they
all are laid out here together, the men
who laughed their way through life
and made others laugh a little more,
and the men who gnawed their hearts
out. All lying side by side, never to
"'Think of the things that those
dead men worried about. What do
they amount to now? Think of the
good luck that they envied in other
fellows. Who in the world remembers
it? They had one little lifetime to
live, and they spoiled it by oversensi
tiveness and jealousy. Doesn't it strike
you as an awfully foolish way to
waste a lifetime, when it's the only
lifetime that you will ever have?'"
Kaiser Sends Greetings
To Agricultural Society
Amsterdam, March 1. Emperor
William in acknowledging a mes
sage of homage from the German
Agricultural society, telegraphed
the following message:
"Your loyal greeting has gratified
me and again convinced me that I
, shall not be deceived in my confi
dence in the efficiency, energy and
ready sacrifice of the German agri
culturists. The army and navy have
achieved tremendous things. The
German sword has prepared the
way for peace. German industry
and perseverence will bring us a
blessed future. Look ahead; trust in
God. My thanks are accompanying
your labors." ,

War Time and Diamonds
. And Some Other Things
Are war times inevitably hard
times? Is the economic pinch wholly
different than from that existing in
times of so-called peace and plenty?
We hear much these days of cold and
hunger, and the pressure of high
prices for the necessities of life. And
yet, here are-conditions to give us
pause. . . ...
"Very sorry, , madam," says the
salesman in. the piano store, "we're
not renting instruments this season.
We find it hard, Jo keep up with our
"Platinum wrist watches? Well,
just at present we're out -of them,
madam. You see the .demand is so
great. Perhaps you could call in
again, in a few days."
Hard times! "
"Not on your life," says the jew
elry man. And the piano man laughs
in your face.
But perhaps, you point out, this
shortage in stock is the result of the
shortage in materials. Perhaps this
joyous demeanor on the part of. the
man is a mere bluff to hide his dis
comfiture. Well, just look at these figures for
In 1915 the import of uncut dia
monds into America was something
over' $8,000,000 in value. In 1910 it
rose to $20,000,000. In 1917, owing to
the lessened output in the Nether
lands, it fell again to $14,000,000, al
most double what it was in times of
In 1915 the import of pearls was lit
tle more than $1,000,000 in value. In
1916 it rose to $10,000,000. In 1917 it
fell again to $4,000,000, owing not to
the lack of demand but to the diffi
culties in transporting the supplies.
The trade in other precious stones
showed equal, if not superior, ad
vances, the total imports of jewelry in
the United States for the firs't ten
months of 1917 being in excess of
"If you look over the history of our
trade in any country during times of

Advisory Superintendent of
Many Swift Plants Says
Eight Hours at This
Chicago, March 1. Taking of tes

packers expect to call their last wit

will be several days given to rebut

At today's session Chester S.
Churchill, advisory superintendent
for Swift and company's plants at
Chicago, Denver, Omaha, Kansas
City. St. Joseph, East St. Louis, St.
Paul and Fort Worth, testified that in
his opinion it would be impractical to
install the eight hour day without ex
tensive alterations in building and
equipment because of lack of tanks
and cooling room space. He said the
change would decrease production of
the plants during the war. The wit
ness said he had not seriously con
sidered the adoption of the eight hour
day until last summer. He believed in
extra compensation for overtime and
holidays and said Swift and company
never worked men overtime if it could

Attorney Frank P. Walsh, for the
employes, asked the witness if he did
not think there would be a great sav

government operated the packing
plants during the war. The witness
declined to express an opinion on the
Attorney Walash read statistics
tending to show that the big packers
had not been operating at their maxi
mum capacity for several months.
He referred to a decrease in the
price of hogs in Chicago of 50 cents
yesterday and 40 cents the day be
fore and asked the witness if the
packers at times did not refuse to buy
live stock so as to depress prices.
Mr. Churchill said he did not. have
anything to do with buying live stock.
Attorney Walsh said the packers
only bought 12,000 hogs in Chicago
yesterday, although they have a kill
ing capacity of 38,600 and that as a
result of the small amount pur
chased 25,000 were left over unsold
Quaker Three-Cushion Cue
Star Has Enviable Record
Otto Reislet, Philadelphia repre
sentative in the Interstate Three
Cushion league, has made a record
this year of which he may well be
proud. He is the only player who has
been ale to win all his matches from
Maupome, the Mexican cue wizard,
who represents a St. Louis billiard
room. Last week he won two games
in one day from Maupome, establish

HERE IS ONE THING THAT
IS ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE
Rheumatism Has Never Been
Cured by Liniments or Lo
tions, and Never Will Be.
You never knew of Rheumatism
that most painful source of suffer
ing being cured by liniments, lotions
or other external applications. And
you will never see anything but tem
porary relief afforded by such makeshifts.
But why be satisfied with tempo
rary relief from the pangs of pain
which are sure to return with in
creased severity, when there is per
manent relief within your reach?
Science has proven that Rheuma
tism is a disordered condition 'of the
blood. How then, can satisfactory
results be expected from any treat
ment that does not reach the blood,
the seat of the trouble, and rid the
system of the cause of the disease?
S. S. S. is one blood remedy that
has for more than fifty years been
giving relief to even the most ag
gravated and stubborn cases of Rheu
matism. It cleanses and purifies the
blood by routing out all traces of
disease. The experience of others
who have taken S. S. S. will convince
you that it will promptly reach your
case. You can obtain this valuable
remedy at any drug store.
A valuable book on Rheumatism
and its treatment, together with ex
pert medical advice about your own
individual case, will be sent abso
lutely free. Write today to Medical
