Japan Tatias tar Gild.
Treasury officials engrossed in
the far reaching programme of
international financing upon
which the country lately has en-!
tered, have' turned their chief at
tention to the unexpected and
somewhat disconcerting- discov
ery that for the past month Ja
pan has been withdrawing gold
from the .United States at the
rate of 150,000,000 to 200,000
000 a year.
Gold exports to Japan within
11 the past three or four weeks, it
is stated, have been between
$10,000,000 and $15,000,000.
Since January I they have totaled
35000,000. Within the next
30 days, th government has been
informed they will approximate
50 per cent of the entire sum
already exported in 1917.
The mystery is more economic
than political it is said, and
there is nowhere apparent any
disposition to question the mo
tives of the government or citi
zens of Japan in withdrawing all
the gold to which they are entit
led. At the same time it is
realized that heavy exports of
gold from this country is highly
There are a number of reas
ons why Japan might have adopt
ed her programme of withdrawing
gold from this country. She is
prospering under war condi
tions, and with , the United
States is a creditor nation.
Russia is known to have gone in
to debtfto her to the extent of

Thisis a mild form ot indiges

by eating to rapidly or to much,

anything to eat is or will be
more highly prized this season
than diamonds. Therefore it

TAKE THE LOAN.
BY EDWARD EVERETT HALE.
Come, freedom of the land,
Come, meet the great demand,
True heart and open hand,
Take the loan!
For tho hopes the prophets saw,
For the sword your brothers
For liberty and law,
Take the loan!
Ye ladies of the land,
As ye love the gallant band,
Who have drawn a soldier's
Take the loan!
Who would bring them what she
Who would give the soldier food,
Who would staunch her brother's
Take tho loan!
All who saw her hosts pass by, '
All who joined the parttng cry,
When we bade them do or die,
Take the loan!
As ye wished their triumph then,
As ye hope to meet again,
And to meet their gaze as men.
Take the loan!
Who could press the. great ap
peal Of our ranks of serried Steele,
Put your shouldes to the wheel,
Take the loan!
That our prayers in truth may
Which we press with streaming
On the Lord of earth and skies,
Take the loan!

outbreak of the Civil War.)

Kidney ailments relieved in Sal

Mra M A Wineqoff, 331 E Kerr

ached so that I could hardly drag
myself around and in the morn

My kidneys were in bad shape
and the kidney secretions were
unnatural. I suffered from head
aches and often felt as though I
would lose my reason. I tried
many medicines but nothing
seemed to do me any good until I
took Doan's Kidney Pills, procur
ed at- the People's Drug Co. They
relieved me from the first and I
continued taking them until my

caused me no trouble,"

WAR TAX ON PRESS BLOW TO DEMOCRACY.
Pronesed Postal Levy at Yartace Witfc Dem
ocratic Idealsas World's Greatest Educator,
The 'apparent failure of the
present administration and the
house to use proper discrimina
tion and judgment in fixing the
portion of the war burden to be
borne by the press of America
is strangely at variance with the
theory of Liberal Democracy and
is already arousing nation wi4e
indignation and resentment, not
only in the press, but among the
fundamental democrats every
where. A democratic state
should, and if true to his princi
ples, will always foster the wide
est possible dissemination of
knowledge. Books, newspapers,
magazine in a word, all the
literature that educates and stim
ulates research and discussion,
should be promoted and fostered
in such a way as to make literacy
and general intelligence the rote,
and not the exception.
This was loner the rule and
working principle of our gover
ment, as it has always been in
an exceptionally marked degree
the working principle of the En?
glish govermen and other liber
al nations. Indeed, it has not
until the Roman Catholic hier
archy organized its secret oath
bound politico-religous societi
pledged to the furtherance of the
interests of thepapalsovereigntj
that the attitude of our govern
ment toward the press changed.
In recent years, however, the
post office department has system
atically sought to. hamper ajsd
restrict, if not penalize, the press.'
Great railroads enjoying what a-
mounted to be vast subsidies
through extortionate mail, ap
propriations were passed over,
while the most successful agen
cies quickly building up news
paper circulation such as the lib
eral distribution of sample copies
and the giving of premiums to
introduce publications, has been
warred upon by the department.
There has, under President Wil
ron's administration, gone for
ward a systematic attempt to
levy enormous postal taxes on
papers. In many instances
where such publication enjoyed
a national circulation but were
neither subsidized or the recip
ients of a great abvertising pa
patronage, such as a postal tax
would mean destruction to the
In the taxes now proposed to
meet the extravagent war ap
propriations the levy is not a rev
enue-producing tax, but in the
nature of the case is a tax that
would lessen revenue and could
serve no purpose but to injure
the press of the nation by great
ly limiting the circulation of
journals and killing great num
bers of papers. Hundreds of pa
pers have recently been stifled
to death by the revenue extort
ing newspaper trust.
The Newspaper Trust, when
exposed by the government in

the public was informed that
