women in the islands is being re

save both Jonathan Hardfist
and his money was brave, but
Peggy didn't see how he was going
to do it. Nevertheless, she was
ready to help all she could.
The German officers in the draw
ing room were Jiaving a loud dis
cussion over plans spread out before
the general. The conference was
interrupted every minute or two by
messengers, who rushed in with re
ports. Those reports, it seemed, did
not bear good news, for the Ger
mans were growing very gloomy.
The talk was all in German, but
Billy Belgium could make out part
"The American troops are counter-attacking,"
he whispered to Peg
gy. "Tift Germans are in danger of
being driven back."
Another messenger rushed in and
evidently his news was very bad in

eral rapped out a brusque com
mand. "He has ordered a retrcat,"'whis

which opened upon a courtyard at
the rear of the house.
"Look!" he whispered.
Feggy never forgot the picture on
which her eyes rested. At one side
German soldiers were foading Mr.

army automobile. At the other side

a squad of soldiers armed with rifles.

Desperately Billy looked around
for a weapon. There wasn't one in
sight. A sharp, vicious buzzing
caused him to jump quickly aside
as a large hornet flew past his ear
on its way from the window to a
nest hanging from a rafter.
"A hornet's nest! The very thing!"
he muttered. Stripping off his coat,
he wrapped it quickly around the
nest, imprisoning the hornets with

loose from the rafter. An angry

the effect was astonishing. As
the first5 nest fell, the Germans
leaped away from it in alarm, evi
dently thinking it a new kind of
bomb. Their officer yelled at them,
but justthcn the second nest fell
and they were more alarmed than
ever. Just then, too, the wrathy
hornets burst fofth in a fury. They
went right after the Germans, driv

strength. As the first hornets
lauded, the Germans let out howls
of pain and slapped sharply at the
little fighters. Then as the hornets
poured forth in a cloud and the
Germans found that the harder they
slapped the worse they got stung,

IF BACK HURTS
Flush your kidneys occa
sionally if you eat meat
No man or woman who eats meat
regularly can make a mistake by
flushing the kidneys occasionally,
says a well-known authority. Meat
forms uric acid which clogs the kid
ney pores so they sluggishly filter
or strain only part of the waste and
poisons frbm the blood, then you get
sick. Nearly all rheumatism, head
aches, liver trouble, nervousness,
constipation, dizziness, sleeplessness,
bladder disorders come frontxslug
gish kidneys. ,
The moment you feel a dull ache
in the kidneys or your back hurts, or
if the urine is cloudy, offensive, full
of sediment, irregular fit passage or
attended by a sensation of scalding,
get about four ounces of Jad Salts
from any reliable pharmacy and
take a tablespoonful 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 cranes and lemon imVi
combjned with lithia and has beenyf
used for generations to flusnj
clogged kidneys and stimulate J&em
to activity, also to neutralize the
acids in urine so it no longer causes
irritation, thus endings bladder dis
orders. Jad Salts is inexpensive and can
not injure; makes a delightful effer
vescent lithia-water drink which all
regular meat eaters should take now
and then to keep the kidneys clean
and the blood pure, thereby avoid
ing serious kidney omphcatue
