Leaders Assured
Of Progress on
German Treaty
President Hopes to Conclude
Negotiations for Formal
Pact Before Conference
On Disarmament.
Chleaf Triboae-Omalia Je Iel Wire.
Washington, Aug. 14. rtesident
Harding hopes to have treaties of
peace negotiated with Germany and
Ihe other central powers before the
international conference on eastern
issues and reduction of armaments
j convents in Washington next No
x .1 vember.
V Although the administration is still
silent on the subject of negotiations
v with the central powers which have
followed the adoption of the peace
'resolution by congress, leaders in
congress, some of whom were grow
ing restless under the strain due to
lack of information as to develop
ments, have been given assurances
. .that progress toward a peace pro
gram is being made.
Following his talk with Senator
Borah a few days ago, in which the
president assured the senator that
there could be no cause for complaint
l; from any republican faction in the
senate when a treaty with Uermany
eventually is submitted 'or ratifica
tion, the tendency on capitol hill to
' get agitated over the lack of infor-
jnation on the subject has dis
" Senators Calm Down.
Senators who are inclined to be
fretful over the situation have calm
ed down and are willing to permit
the president and Secretary Hughes
V to carry their negotiations with the
V central powers to the point where
the senate will rightfully take part
in the proceedings. It is for the pres
ident to negotiate treates and the
senate to ratify them. Until there is
treaty the senate cannot be called
upon to act.
Cabled reports that a treaty with
Germany is ready to be signed could
get no verification here in official
quarters. Secretary Hughes main-'
. taincM his long silence on the sub
ject of these negotiations. The pres
ident had left the White House for
a week-end on the Potomac. Indi
cations in the official quarters were,
however, that the German negotia
tions had not reached a conclusion
.yet and that it would be several
weeks, at least, before there could
: be any announcement of their status.
No announcement is expected until
a treaty has , been actually negotiated
which will carry out the provisions
.of, the peace resolution requiring the
- protection o rights ceded to the
-United States in the rejected Ver
sailles treaty.
Harding Encouraged.
The president, it is said, has rea
son to be encouraged over the pros
pect for conclusion of these negotia?
tions before the armament confef
- ence begins. It is his. fervent desire
to have this important phase of in
ternational relations settled long be
fore the Washington conference, if
. YitoftSu8mtM-is possible. "
-t Officially,: there ' has never been
?ry admission in Washington- that a
treaty ,with Germany, Austria or
Hungary has been under negotia
! tion. Unofficially, it has been ad
i rriitted that this is a fact. Announce
. ment from Budapest today that the
Hungarian national , assembly had
. approved the peace resolution
' adopted by the United States and
' ; had authorized the Hungarian gov-
prnmrnt to negotiate a treaty of
peace, aroused no comment from o.
I ficial sources here. It is understood.
' however, that this government had
siihmitted to the Hungarian govern
ment immediately after its passage
; the peace resolution as a basis for
' neeotiations. The same course was
i taken with Germany and Austria.
. Passed on July 2.

More Truth
He's just an idle, useless chap
Who loafs around all day;
He wouldn't do a single tap
For any wage we'd pay.
He pays for neither board nor room
Yet he is satisfied
To stay and shamelessly consume
What other folks provide.
He can't control his appetite,
He often eats until
He wakens in the dead of night
Quite dangerously ill.
And all the time more savage grows
His fierce and bitter mood,
But when he's cured, he never shows
A bit of gratitude.
When he's asleep we dare not speak
Or walk across the floor
Lest in a sudden fit of pique
He wake the folks next door.
But he'll not hesitate to fuss
And clamor, no indeed 1
When e'er he wants to waken us
To serve his slightest need.
And yet we like to have him round,
He really means no harm,
And since we've known him we have found
He has a certain charm.
His temper will improve, we trust,
His heart may prove pure gold, '
There still is time, because he's just
A year and two months old.

My Dear Miss Draper:
Back in my room at Mrs. Ticer's,

sat before an improvised desk, cud

wondered if I had not obtruded my
self too much in writing of the ar

upon my writing the letter, and upon

On Friday nights or Saturday aft

to have small parties during the

they might fittingly mark birthdays

Where It Started
The Fourth Estate.
This term, so long applied to the
press, originated with Carlyle. In
"Heroes and Hero-Worship," he
says: "Burke says that there were
three estates in parliament, but in
the reporters' gallery yonder there
sat a fourth estate, more important
by far than they all."

Romance in Origin
Of Superstitions
The Silver Cure.
An old-time superstition belonging
tc the folk-medicine class is that a
horse may be cured of any one of
several diseases by inserting a piece
cf silver in the affected part. Usually
a dime is employed and it is imper
ative that the cure should be admin
istered by the light of the moon.
This superstition is not so common
as it was a few years ago tut is
still met with in widely scattered lo
calities. It is of course, a survival
of moon-worship. The silver dime is
a minature "silver moon." Even
should another piece of silver than a
dime be -used still the relation is the
same between the lunay goddess and
the metal which represents her and
her light. The curative operation is
an appeal to the moon goddess, a
sacrifice to her of her favorite metal,
an offering to her. In this case it is
probably the moon goddess in the
form of the Great Artemis that is
appealed to, for Artemis protected
against disease and Alexander may
have cured Buchephalus of sweeny
with a drachma in the same man
ner as the Arkansas farmer now
cures Dobbin of the same disease
with a dime.

Lady Astor Finds Speaker
Of House Napping in Chair
London, Aug. 14. The Sussex
Daily News publishes a story of
how the new speaker was literally
caught napping in his chair.
It was during a particularly tc
dious part of a particularly tedious
debate, so runs the malicious tale,
that Lady Astor tripped up the steps
to the speaker's dais to have some
private words' with him; but on dis
covering at close range that Mr.
Whitley was peacefully sleeping she
w ithdrew on tiptoe with an air of
maternal solicitude.
This story, if true, destroys a fond
illusion. It has always been sup
posed that the one member of the
House of Commons that never skpi
was Mr. Speaker "among the faith
less, faithful only he" that, in fact,
he was paid $20,000 per year free of
income tax to keep awake.

bear is a terribly dangerous creature.
It's a wonder that you ever got

saw him?" Mrs. Tig demanded.
"I walked away, said Gruntj'.
"He couldn't have noticed you,"

Grunty Pig felt that he was the

Veterans' Bureau
Will Cut Red Tape
Forbes Dcelares
Director Optimistic But Warns
People Not to Expect Too
Much at Present
rhlcagn Tribune-Omaha Ie I eol Wire.
Washington, Aug. 14. Chirles R.
Forbes, director of the veterans'
service bureau created under the
Sweet soldiers' relief act, is optimistic
over the outlook for improving re
lief conditions, but does not want the
country to expect too much at once.
"Created for ex-service men, the
veterans' bureau, authorized by the
act of congress of August 9, 1921,
will, in the course of time, remove
delays and red tape which have, in
the past, hindered the administration
of soldier and sailor relief by gov
ernment agencies," said Director
Yorbes today.
"While the creation of the vet
erans' bureau eliminates one of the
chief difficulties in the way of soldier
relief work, that of duplication of ef
fort, it must be remembered that the
creation of the bureau is not, in itself,
an immediate panacea for all of the
troubles of the ex-service person and
that too much must not be expected
in the very beginning. It has taken
several years to build up the reserve
government machinery and it can not
be made over in a night.
"The work of decentralization
which is provided for in the veter
ans' bureau, to be really successful,
must be gradual. To make any
hasty steps would be a calamity and
if the ex-service men are educated
to feel that in a couple of weeks
they will receive all they desire in
the way of compensation and medi
cal treatment nd that all cases will
be settled within 24 hours after re
ceipt, it will defeat the purpose of
the Sweet bill, creating the new
bureau. ' '
"The veterans' bureau was created
for . the veterans of the w orld war.
Its functions are many and various.
More than .1,000,000 claims are on
file in the Washington office and
nearly 30,000 ex-service, men are in
hospitals at the present time.
"The 14 regional offices of the
veterans' bureau will assist the
claimant in every possible manner.
Before the creation of the veterans'
bureau employes of the government
were not authorized to assist a
claimant in the preparation of his
claim." .: ' . "

Does Glass Cut Off the Heat of Fire
but Increase that of the Sun?
This question, while apparently
founded upon fact, is in reality
based cither upon misconception of
the true natural facts in the case or
upon the use of entirely different
substances, for the glass that in
creases the heat of the rays of the
sun a burning or magnifying glass
is quite different in its construction
from plate or sheet glass, in which
the sides are practically parallel. It
it were possible to keep a fire as
steady and as unwavering as the sun
a magnifying glass would increase
its heat precisely as it does that of
the sun itself, but the constant flick
er and movement alters the heat and
makes the increase in power barely
In the cae of a greenhouse, how
ever, the effect is due to an entirely
different cause. Here the glass sides
and roof allow all the heat of the sun
to enter but they also permit little
of the interior heat to escape and it
is because of this, rather tnan be
cause of any magnification of the
sun heat itself, that greenhouses have
high temperatures on sunny days
even when they are not ariifically
heated. In short, a conservatory is
a heat-trap, rather than a heat-producer.
For this reason, it cannot be
said to be true that glass cuts ott
the heat of fire as in the case of a
class fire screen, but increases that
of the sun. though superficial obser
vation might incline us to this beliet.'
