The reception to be given m Philadelphia the
latter par; ol next mouth to almost four thousand
newly admitted citizens will be the tirst affair of
its kind in the I'nited States. Although this eouu
try began with aliens and has ever since been ad
mitting multitude* of foreigners to citizenship, the
idea of welcoming publicly with appropriate cere
monies the newly made Americans has not sug
gested itself until re -eutly. when somebody in Phil
adelphia got hold of it.
That the plan should have found favor is natural,
since it has not only novelty but also the possibility
of making better citizens of the new Americans
he cause they will be properly impressed through
the proposed ceremonies with the importance of the
step they are taking and of the responsibilities in
volved. Tue presence of President Wilgon, who is
scheduled as the principal speaker, will give the
first reception of its kind more than local impor
auce. Not only Philadelphia, but the I'nited
states will be giving a formal welcome to persons
if foreign birth declaring allegiance to the Stars
ind Stripes and entering upon the privileges and
luties of American citizenship.
The conditions on which aliens are granted the
franchise in this country are not only that they
(ave lived here for tivi> consecutive years and are
ible to speak the English language, but also that
hey are of good character and have some knowl
edge of the Constitution and of the methods of gove
rnment. The chances are therefore that they will
•ft en make better citizens than such native Ameri
ans as may be entitled to citizenship simply be
ause of birth in the country, and not by reason of
dual fitness to cast votes and iu consequence of
etive endeavors on their part to have the precious
irivileges bestowed upon them.
Immigrants to the United States who after some
ears decide to take up their residence permanently
i the republic, and, losing sight of the virtues of
heir native lands while considering the vaster ad
antages of their adopted country apply for natur
lization. deserve more than passing notice from
lieir new fellow citizens. When men transfer their
llegianee from one flag to another it seems fitting
iiat they should be made welcome under the new
anner with ceremonies more inspiring than the
lere filling out of the necessary papers.
Although steamship companies have within the
ia* few days been refusing to accept merchandise
>r transportation from this country to Switzerland,
y way of Italy, it is not likely that the refusals
ill continue any great length of time. Indications
re that the condition is temporary and that as soon
i certain complications can be overcome, the usual
lipment of goods to the small republic will be re
The government of Switzerland has been unable
satisfy the British authorities that Swiss mer
tants are not acting as agents for the Germans and
1 not sliding supplies across the border to the bel
jerents. As a consequence it seems that the Brit
ti have held up at Gibraltar ships bearing mer
tandise which was desfined avowedly for Switzer
nd but which the British thought might possibly
id its way farther north if they permitted it to
it by them.
The steamship companies of course do not care
r too many interferences with the progress of the
ipa on their lines and prefer not to handle goods
when such handling is likely to meet with British
disapproval. They may be forced to bar exports to
Scandinavian countries as well as to Switzerland,
it appears, unless these countries assure the Allies
in some satisfactory way that shipments which they
receive from the United States do not find their
ultimate abiding place in Germany. The precau
tions may be necessary, but no doubt, only for the
time being It ean reasonably be expected that ad
justments will be made without great delay.

Prayer Offered at Launching
At the suggestion of the Society of
Sponsors off the I'nited States Navy,
composed of ladies who have acted as
sponsors of vessels of the United States
Navy, prayer was offered at the launch
ing of the U. S. S. Pennsylvania at
Norfolk to-day. Between the years'
1843 and 1914. there were no religious
ceremonies incident to the launching of
vessels of Navy. The custom was
revived when the Oklahoma was launch
ed on March 21, last. Jnst a short
while before the launching was to occur
it was suggested that prayer be in
cluded in the exercises. The Governor
of Oklahoma and his party desired that
prayer should be offered by an Okla
homa clergyman, preferably Bishop
Hoss, and it was supposed that he was !
then in Oklahoma. At the suggestion ,
of some friends, a relative of his iu I
Baltimore was telephoned and it was
ascertained that through strange coinei-1
deuce he was then in Philadelphia. As I
the vessel was to be launched only'
across the river at Camden, it was a j
small matter to complete the arrange-1
ments ind Bishop Hoss offered the pray
er. This plan was continued to-day i
when the Pennsylvania was launched.
• . *
Text of the Prayer To-day
Governor Brumbaugh nominated
Bishop Joseph F. Berry to deliver the I
prayer to-day. It was as follows:
i- 0 Eternal God. Creator of the Uni
verse and Governor of Nations: Most j
heartily we beseech Thee with Thy Fa- j
vor to behold and bless Thy servant,
the President oi the United States,
all the officers of our Government, and j
so replenish them with the grace of
Thy Holy Spirit that they may always I
incline to Thy will and walk iu Thy :
way. Bless the Governors of the sev- i
eral States, an t all who are in authority |
over us: give them grace to execute
| justice and maintain truth that peace]
and happiness, religion and piety, may ]
be established among us for all geu
-1 erations.
'"May the vessels of our Xavy be
guarded by Thy gracious Pravidenee
huJ care. May they not bear the sword
in vain, but as the minister of God, be
a terror to those v.ho do evil aud a de
fense to those who do well.
"Graciously bless the officers ani
men of our Navy. May love ot' country
be engraven on their hearts and may
their adventurous spirits and severe
toils be duly appreciated by a grateful
nation: may their lives be precious in
Thy sight, aiut if ever our ships of war j
should be engaged in battle, grant that j
their struggles may be only under an
enforced necessity tor the defense of
what is right.
"Bless all nations and kindreds on
the face of the earth and hasten the
time when the principles of holy religion
shall so prevail that none shall wage
war any more for the purpose off ag
gression. and none shall need it as a
means of defense.
"All of which blessings we ask
through the merits of Jesus Christ our
Lord. Amen.''

Take a Glass of Salts If Tour Back
Hurts or Bladder Bothers—Meat
Forma Uric Add
If you must have vonr meat every
day, eat it. but flush your kidneys with
salts occasionally, says a noted author
ity who tells us that meat forms uric
acid which almost paralyzes the kid
neys in their efforts to expel it from
the blood. They become sluggish and
weaken, then you suffer with a dull
misery in the kidney region, sharp pains
in the back or sick headache, dizziness,
your stomach sours, tongue ia coated
and when the weather is bad you have
rheumatic twinges. The urine gats
cloudy, full of sediment, the channels
often get sore and irritated, obliging
you to seek relief two or three times
during the night.
To neutralize these irritating acids,
to cleanse the kidneys and flush off the
body's urinous waste get four ounces of
Jad Salts from any pharmacy here;
take a tablespoonful in a glaas of
water before breakfast for a few days
and your kidneys will then act fine.
This famous salts is made from the acid
of grapes and lemon juice, combined
with lithia, and has been used for gen
erations to flash and stimulate sluggish
kidneys, also w neutralize the acids in
urine, so it no longer irritates, thus
ending bladder weakness.
Jad Salts is inexpensive; cannot in
jure, and makes a delightful efferves
cent lithia-water drink.—Adv.

Takes Place of Wine In Russia
The banishment of table wines by
government- edict in Russia has brought
to the fore a beverage which seldom has
been used outside the peasant's cottage.
It is '"kvass.Though it closely re
sembles lager beer in color, it is more
like American root beer in taste, and
is also non-intoxicating. The favorite
brand is prepared by a special treat
ment of Russian black bread. It is now
served in all the restaurants. Another
incidental curiosity about Russian fare
is the fact that the American griddle
cake makes its appearance in Russia
for one week only iu the whole year.
That week is the one preceding Lent.
The griddle cake is disguised as a spe
cial luxury under the name of "blinl.'
It is eaten plentifully at any or all
meals during the week. It is served with
