Consuls to Look
After Foreigners
Washington, D. C.. March 14.—Gen
oral Carranza has consented to have
American consuls look after the inter
ests of foreigners in parts of Mexico
under control of the Constitutionalists
where their own governments have no
consular representatives.
Where there are such representa
tives he suggests that, even where
their governments have recognized
Huerta, these consuls may unofficially
communicate with him without involv
ing their governments. Also, he sug
gests his willingness to listen and heed
any applications made to him directlv
by the friends and relatives of for
eigners whose lives or property may be
threatened and to make investigation
of every case and to punish anv of his
followers who may be culpable.
This is the substance of a tele
graphic report made to Secretary
Bryan to-day by Mexican Consul Sini
pich, at Nogales.
Villa Wants Presidency
"Villa, the one-time bandit, will be
the next president of Mexico. That is

bition until he either is dead or presi
This declaration was made to-day
by a friend so close to General Villa as
to give authority to the assertion. It
was prompted by reports that the go
ing to Chihuahua of General Carranza,
recognized as the civil head of the
revolution, was to bring about con
ditions more satisfactory to foreign
governments. It was stated em
phatically that the coming of Car
ranza is not to lessen in any way the
power now wielded by Villa, who for
months has been a dictator.

New Pastor of Dallastown
U. B. Church Meeting
With Success in His Work
* Hi
s iSpf^,
By Special Correspondence
Dallastown. Pa.. March 14. For
eight weeks the borough has been
stirred with evangelistic work such as
has not been the case since the days of
the Rev. John Young, over twenty
years ago, and it has all been due to
the Rev. C. C. Miller, the new pastor
of Bethlehem United- Brethren Church.
While not an evangelist in the full
acceptation of the term, as he has sim
ply been a pastor since he entered the
ministry twenty-three years ago, the
Rev. Mr. Miller's Sunday evening ser
mons to his own congregation are
evangelistic in character, and on ac
count of his plain, unvarnished talks
he carries a personality and force for
the greatest possible good. The eight
weeks' service, with triple sermons on
Sunday, were never equaled here.
They .closed this week with decisions
for a better life from eighty-two per
sons, twenty-six of whom were men
of years, mostly married and heads of
families. A like number were women
—wives of the men —and the balance
young folks, few under the age of 15
years. At a men's special service over
1,000 were present and at a like meet
ing for women over 1.500 —never such
gatherings in the history of Dallastown.
Most of those converted have asso
ciated themselves with the United
Brethren Church, though no influence
was used by the pastor, church
affiliation being left to themselves. He
has established an "instructive Bible
class" for every Friday night with
seventy-five members, largely of the
converted, and a mens personal work
ers' league has been formed to work
among the unsaved and follow up the
-esult of the revival meetings. The
Rev. Mr. Miller came here from Coue
maugh, Cambria county, last Fall, suc
ceeding the Rev. L. Walter Lutz, now
at Chambersburg.

Armed Robbers Open
Safe and Get Away
With $15,000 in Cash
By Associated Press
Chicago, March 14.—Five armed
robbers broke into the mail order
branch of the Hartman furniture com
pany here early to-day, blew open the
office safe, threw aside valuable se
curities, discarded $40,000 in money
orders and escaped with $15,000 cash,

third employe of the furniture were
surprised and bound and gagged. The
robbers then blew off the safe door
with nitroglycerine.
Failure of the watchmen to make
their hourly report on the burglar
alarm service wires led a telegraph

a revolver and escorted him within
the building where he was bound and
gagged and left with the three Hart
man watchmen.

chloride of mercury poisoning, Dr.
William E. Curtin, a resident. physi
cian at the Harrisburg Hospital, used
the same method In saving the life of
Mrs. Mary Sweitzer. who tried to end
her life by taking sixty-eight grains of
the poison.
Mrs. Sweitzer was brought to the
hospital on March 4. She was uncon
scious. Attempt was made to wash the
poison from her stomach with the
stomach pump. The usual test indi
cated that the stomach was freed from
poison. But Dr. Curtin was not sat
isfied, and got two quarts of milk.
When he tried to wash the stomach
out with the milk, something that had
never been done before, he obtained
results which indicated that much 01
the poison was not removed from the
stomach by the first pumping. Milk
was used in washing out the stomach
until it was cleared of the poison. The
woman regained .consciousness.
In addition to the use of milk in
washing out the stomach, Dr. Curtin
used sodium phosphate and has con
tinued to use it daily as a purgative
to eliminate any poison from the sys
tem. He used soda benzoate of cafein
to stimulate the action of the kidneys
so that the poison that had gotten out
of the stomach into the kidneys would
be thrown off at once. This prevented
degeneration of that organ.
To-day Mrs. Sweitzer sat up for
four hours. Yesterday she sat up two
hours, and is growing stronger each
day. She will recover unless unex
pected complications result. The poi
son symptoms have been eliminated.
Yesterday the statement of Dr.
Thomas A. Carter, of Chicago, was
made public that he had discovered a
cure for mercurial poisoning. The
"cure" as given in the announcement
is practically the same as that used
by Dr. Curtin ten days ago.. Dr. Carter
says he has cured four out of six pa
tients by his method.

had a smaller per capita fire protec
tion cost during 1912 than Harrisburg.
