"We must have one language— the language of the Declaration of Independence, of Washington's farewell address, and Lincoln* great speeches." So said Mr. Roose velt at Gotham, N. Y„ a few days ago in nn address. Only a few days ago about all the people connected with a leading Ger man paper printed In Philadelphia were arrested. Papers in this coun try not printed in the language ol thi» country— the English language —•re a menace to the good order of the government and a suppres sion of them would be along the light line at this time. It is believed that Russia will come arouud alright. The tug of war in that great country now is ' i Whether KornllofT or A shall prevail.

His ambition is for world-freedom aid not per sonal aggrandizement.

The Soldiers' and Sailors' Insur ance .bill, designed as a substitute iq the future for the present pen sion system, favorably reported to the House of Congress, would provide allowances for dependent* of men in the service, compensa tion for death and disability, op tional insurance for officers and enlisted men, and educational and vocational training for honorably discharged men. Administration costs for the first and second years of the war are estimated at sl7ti,'' 000,000 and $380,000,000, respec tively. ~ The optional insurance section of the bill, around which, the bit terest tight will centre, contem plates the issuance to officers and men without distinction of policies ranging from SI,OOO to $5,000 for the duration of the war only, at an estimated cost of $8 per SI,OOO to the policyholder. Insurance companies are said to have de clined to assume such war risks for less than S6B a SI,OOO. Proposed allotments fordepend ents of men in the service would range from $5 a month to SSO, ac cording to the number of depend ents and their relationship to the man in service. A dependent wife with no children would re ceive sls a month; witn one child, $25; two children, $32.60, and for each additional child, $6. Upon death resulting from injuries a wido»v would receive from S3O to s2otl a month. Similar provision is made for widowed mothers. A 1 lowance for disabilities incurred in the service would range from S4O to S2OO a month. Burke Man Gets Big Money From English Government. D. F. Asbury, son of 8. M. As bury of Murko county, nays a dis patch from Morgauton, has won world-wide fame by an important invention covering improvemenlH in big guns.

How the War Started Wne of the little grandsons of the Kaiser said lately to his im perial relative: "Grandpa, did you make this war"? "No, child," replied the Kaiser. "Then did Uncle George make the war'"' ' ••No." "Did Uncle Nick make the war, grandpa"? "I'll tell you how it started," said his grandfather. "A man namod Teddy Roosevelt came to see me and I took him to look at the Krupp works.

Insurance Company Saved Thousands of Dollars Annually. ■" Heat evidence that t.vphold fever haa been coating the State thous and* of dollars ever.v year is fur nished by the Southern Life ana Trust Company of Greensboro, in its monthly publication, Tb* Phot The August issue says: "Up until last year typhoid fever was cost ing this company thousands of dol lars annually; but the constant a;,'i tation kept up by the Board of Health, newspapers, county phyii cians and other means of transmit ting advi c?"to the people to guard against typhoid fever, resulted in this company's not having a death from typhoid fever in 1816,' and on ly one this year.' The State Board of Health points out that the thousands of dollars that are saved this company annu ally are only 6,824 people the num ber of this company's policy hold ers in the State, and that if typhaiJ prevention work has meant this saving on such a small proportion it has meant a saving over 300 times as great for the entire State. The Pilot attributes this great re duction in typhoid mainly to th' 3 .fact that people are learning that it is strictly a filth disease ami must either be eaten with one's food or drunk with one's drink to be a case. The disgrace that goes with the disease is another feature that is beginning to appeal to the to the people. More care is now being given to home sanitation ana the various means of preventing tae spread of this dangerous disease. More interest is also being taken in anti-typhoid vaccination which every day is proving its value. No Secrecy About Preventable Dis eases—State Board of Health Will Make Reports of New State Law. Raleigh, Sept. 4.—That there shall be no secrecy as to preventable diseases that shall occur in the State from now on, particularly an to where they occur and in what number, is the announcement made to-day by the State Board oi Health. The purpose is to aid the Board in its plan to reduce the number of preventaole diseases in the State. The information will oe obtained through the new State law requiring physicians and house holders to report cases of commun nicable diseases to the county quar antine officer and the latter to the State Board of Health. This law went Into effect August Ist. The first month'r reports show that the law is already in active operation. It is the opinion of the Scate Board of Heallh that the presence of any contagious, preventable dis card in a town-or community is a matter of vital interest to tho pub lic, that the people have a right to know where it exists, and that there Is no reason for suppressing such information. If anything mus: be Huppresscd, says the Board let It be the disease itself and not th fact that a town has had so many cases or has had so may deaths. The Board's plan of informing the public regarding the presence o, any contagious disease in the State will embrace two methods. The first will be through the monthly reports of the county quarantine officer, which records will be puo- Ushed monthly, and the second will lie by means of an epidemiological map on which the number of caseb of a contagious diseases at any place will be Indicated by colorea pins. This map will be kept In the office of the State Board ol Health for the information of the public. Biggest Better Babies Contest at The State Fair—New Building For the Better Babies Now Enrolling. Raleigh, Sept. 6,—The biggest Bet ter Babiea Contest ever held in the State and probably in the South will be held here at the State Fair next month, Oct. 15-20. For this purpoae a wing or aection of the new Woman's Building, recently constructed 1 and uaed thia season .for the firat time haa been aet apart and apecially equipped. The intereat of the babiea haa been well looked after in the new building, and their presence with that of their mothera is counted on as be ing one of the biggest features at the Fir thia year. The babiea are already enroll ing. Miaa Mae Reynolds of the State Board of Health, who is sec retary of the Better Babiea Conteat ia receiving applications and re iue»ta for information almost daily and says that auch interest in the contest has never been shown this early in the contest before. The names of half a dozen fine babiea ha\ e already been placed on the liat. The conteat will be under the management of the Health Depart ment of the Woman'* Club of Ral eigh, with Mrs. W. A. Wither* as chairman. The same rules and re*- ulationa aa those governing the contest laat J ear will be o >»ervel thia year. Babiea from 6 t» J8 moa. old will be admitted and the aame system of making the exsminations and keeping the acorea will >e uaed.

What haa occome of the old-4aah ioned tailor who sewed on auttons that stayed on? "Hooverize" But Don't Stop Eating. Some people seem to think to "Hooveriee*- or to conserve food is to cut down on eating and to •crimp their bill ot fare. The State Board ot Health lays there, are more intelligent ways of conserving food, which if they are abaerved, will conserve health at the same they conserve food. The Board aa.\ s: j "Chew your food well. Proba bly the biggest waste of fcaad in this country grows out of hasty eating, as half chewed food is only half digested, and therefore the other half is wasted. Dr. Horace Fletcher, it is said, proved that a man could live on half as much food if he chewed it well as was required for him when he gulped it down. Chew your food thor oughly to taste and enjoy it. ''iiatall you want but know some thing of the nourishing value of whaj you eat, particularly of wh/»t you buy to eat. An inquiry by tne Federal Government not long ago brought out the fact that out of every SIOO spent by 2,500 families of moderate incomes thai, were spent for meat alone. Only 63c wore spent for rfce and less than 80c for cheese, both of the latter being excellent suostitutes for meat. Too much meat eating is a fault that almost of the people can correct and thereby reduce their food bill. More milk, especially for children, ana friiits, nut# and vegetables for grown people should be substituted for meat. This will not only insure a smaller grocer's bill to pay but a smaller doctor's bill. Besides, it is a patriotic duty." OUR PART. MY HEBBKBT KAUFMAN. » France gaily bleeds upon her torn frontiers and counts her waning wealth u! men and gold with still unquiiling heart. Belgium, a shambles and a house of shames superbly keeps the faith with exiled flag and king beneath the banners of a conqueror. Bewildered Russia, groping, man umitted surf, plays perilously with sudden rights as children with a toy they do not understand, who, in the search for revelation, break the works beyond repair. 'l'he path to Austria has taken an Italian life in toll for every foot of progress made, and after two years .spent upon the stuboorn heights, the farthest sentry on the last outposting peak is not a night removed from his own boundaries. Rumania struck one blow and then became a German camp, a looted realm; and Servian Peter leads his homeless waifs on alien soil. Britain »in vain hurls her full strength into the West, recruits un ceasin levies for the slaughter heap. Her constant transports ply the Seven Seas. Pathan, Egyptian Anzak, promptly answer each fresh call, and the astounding Prussian with never an invading foot upon the Fatherland, calmly eats their steel, presents unbroken ironts. maintains its hold from Antwerp to the Dardanelles, and insolently challenges the world from pole to pole to pool its might and come in arms against him. The end of this grim war is not in sight. Whoever thinks the Allied cause is won has read his facts amiss. We have our parts to play—a sad and heavy dauntless part. r We cannot, dare not (ail our pledges. Should Europe yield, as Europe majr, before we can assert our strength, America alone must meet the Central Powers, free than to devote their undivided fleets ana armies to our desolation. This is the time for minute men tor the right minute man—the time for the best to lead and the rest to heed; for the swift minds, for bold minds; for vast, audacious plans; the time for unites for sac rifice, for action by the fastest clocks.

CURE FOR "DENTIST FRIGHT" Nervous Fatigue Suffered by Patient Result of Unnecessary Strain of Expecting a Hurt. That curious fear experienced by many known as "dentist fright" la al together unnecessary, according to doctors. "The fatigue which results from an hour Or more of this dentist tension Is too well known to need descrip tion," says Annie Payson Call, the well-known teacher of nerve training. "Most of the nervous fatigue suffered from the dentist's work is in conse quence of the unnecessary strain of expecting a hurt, and not from any actual pain inflicted. The result ob tained by insisting upon making your self a dead weight In the chair, If yon succeed only partially, will prove this. It will also be a preliminary means of getting rid of the dentist fright—that peculiar dread which la so well known to most of us." So well known Indeed to some of us as to shut out the sunlight for weeks before the fatal date, the dread Increasing steadily, till by the time the chair la reached a state of tension has been attained that preclude* the possi bility of letting ourselves "go dead." But, says a well-known neurologist, one can drop all this by a little effort, and say to himself, "I will not cry till I am hurt." In fact, he cannot only acquire the ability to become a dead weight In the chair but'will final ly give no more thonght to the den tilt's appointment than to a date at the golf club.

Business often plays an Important part In the matrimonial market, espe cially in some parts of Europe, and an old-time custom In Petrograd was once responsible for the yearly pairing off of all eligible*. On Whitsunday afternoon the famous summer gardens were thrown opeh for the marriage mart Girls and their mothers, bachelor and their father*—, the entire population, In fac*—thronged the gardens for the purpose of finding suitable partners. The girl* put on their prettiest clothes, and wore their prettiest smiles, and as they promenaded to and fro, they and their parents kept a wary eye for a suitable husband. The girl fre quently held some object of value In her right hand as ft symbol of what the aspirant might be led to expect In the shape of a dowry. Sometimes It would be silver spoons or a silver dish, or, In the case of one of humble means, a homely looking Jar. When ft favorable impression had been made, the suitor would address the girl's companion—probably the marriage broker or saleswoman whose business it was to act as medium in these transactions—and particulars of his name, address, age and prospects would follow in due course. The question of "her" dowry would then receive consideration, and If the union was a suitable one from all points of view, the marriage saleswom an received a fee for her services. NATURE nXESJNO AGE LIMIT Man Who Uvea Carefully Can Retain Vitality and Endurance Indefi nitely, It la Claimed. "Three score years and ten," tradi tion says, Is the span of a human life. This must be divided Into thne pe riods to Include preparation, efficiency and decay, each period lasting nearly 25 yean. With the athlete, It la still more severe. Few men at thirty-five. It Is said, have the reserve vitality and endurance that they had at twenty five. Therefore the edict has gone forth that at thirty-five the athlete must let up In violent competitive work and gradually back out of the front ranks. But there la no scientific evidence to show that this Is necessary, says Popular Science Monthly. The human body Is simply an assemblage of cells, which must be kept active, without be ing overstrained and nourished with out being overfed, in order that they may be able to resist- the attacks of microscopic enemies which cause dis ease and decay. Under favorable con ditions these cells will live indefinitely without showing signs of age of loes of vitality. Therefore the conclusion Is reached that the "three score years and ten" are not fixed by any natural law, but rather by the conditions un der which men live and by their per sonal habits. The athletic champion, then, who lives under the best hy gienic conditions and observes the law of temperance In all things and at all times, ehould be able to "sit tight" on his pedestal so long as ha desires. National Wasts. Five years of drumming Into the publie the tremendous wastes ot fire carelessness has apparently had little effect It pwbably will take a war such as the one Into which the country Is now plunged, with its measures of national economy, to correct wasteful ness which has cost millions in money and countless lives.

The report lays 2L4 per cent of the biases to strictly preventable causes, 87J) per cent to partially preventable causes and 40,7 per cent to unknown causes, largely preventable. It Is another Il lustration of the notorious fact that Americu saves at the spigot and wastes at the bung. Fire prevention and food economy in these days of na tional aaving should go hand In hand, "Exchange. i - "■— Spain is having so many strikes that it might as well get into the war and fight somebody outside the family.
