Seven words ; embraQed. in the
phrase "prstty he rd jto do 'any

Gcverumont at thelrial of the ac
cused "bomb'plotters" today, as
its evidenos that Herman G. Sei

in the dynamite" conspiracy."":
Seifert, as.one of the 41 accused
union officials, had waited weeks
to testify and he was on the stand
less than 20 mioutes . explaining
what he meant by that phrase.
About a month before an explo
sion in Milwaukee on March 16,
1911, when a j)b" was damaged
by dynamite with 150,000 Joss,
Seifert took the place of William
E. Rddiu, business agent of the
Irou Workers' Union,
sick for four days. During that
time Seifert wrote a letter to John
J . McNamara at Indianapolis.
Using that phrase, the . witness
said he referred to the efforts . to
unionize th9 job. 'Seifert asserted
he first learned of the explosion
from newspapers. MoManigal
confessed to having actually plac
ed the explosive. -
Reddin, also a defendant, testi
fied that in response . to demands
from the Iudianapolis headquar

construction work at Clinton,

blown up. He said McNamara
also required him to forward news

Keep Tour Mouth Clean
The mouth is the most neglect
ed and ill kept organ of the hu
man body. Some authorities as
sert that our neglected and mis
used mouths are responsible for
more human ills and loss of work
ing efficiency than any other one
organ in the body. Care of the
teeth can not be. taught too soon.
Children in sohool should be
taught the oare and proper use of

This is particularly true where ohil.

brushing the teeth at home,
