ft Is Understood that all the wire
less dispatches so far have dealt only
with routine executive business and
that oxoept for a report on the nom
ination of Carter Glass, as Secretary
of the Treasury, it has not been nec
essary to bring any matter im
portance to the President's attention.
Mr, Tumulty expects, however, to
communicate with his chief almost
ss freeiy as though he were in the
White House. A special code for the
purpose has been devised by cipher
experts, and the executive messages
ore given priority over ail other
busin-v-s through the naval radio.
The appointment of a new direc
tor general of railroads, it was said
to-day, probably will be delayed at
least until near the first of the year.

Suits for the collection of thou
sans of dollars due to the Common
j wealth as the unpaid shares of bor
i oughs and townships in Central
> Pennsylvania will be entered here by
the Attorney General's Department
in the next few weeks in the clearing
i up of the accounts outstanding in the
' closing of the present state adminis
tration. A number of suits were
| brought about a month ago for the
collection of similar charges and the
coming list will close up.
j It seems to be the plan to have till
! these accounts brought into court
before the end of the year so that
. the new administration will be able
I to start fresh with its work. In most
of the cases the boroughs and town
; ships signed up for the road con
struction and have failed to pay. The
' counties he ve met their shares, but
i the smaller municipalities have been
disinclined to pay, although some
of them have been asked half a
dozen times. Some eight or ten years
ago a general roundup was made
i of counties and townships which had
! been allowed to drift and thousands
of dollars had to be sued out.
The maintenance work to be done
naxt spring is being listed at the
Highway Department, but nothing
Will be undertaken until after the
first of the year and then only as
j weather permits. Maintenance and
' repairs of the state highways has
! been a very expensive proposition
i this year and more money has been
spent on the upkeep than the whole
• appropriation for the department
' amounted to half a dozen years ago.
! The Lincoln highway alone cost
i three-quarters of a million dollars
j in round numbers to get into good
j shape for winter after the abnorm-
I ally heavy traffic due to the thou
j sands of motor trucks and motor ve-
I hides which used it this year. In
other sections the maintenance aiso
cost a large amount of money and
the State Treasury statement shows
j that heavy drafts have been made
upon the almost $4,000,000 received
from automobile registration.

Catarrhal Deafness
and Head Noises
If you have catarrh, catarrhal
deafness or head noises caused by
catarrh, or if phlegm drops in your
. throat and has caused catarrh of the
t stomach or bowels you will be glad
to know that these distressing syrap
-1 toms may be entirely overcome in
: many instances by the following
treatment which you can easily pre
pare in your own home at little test.
Secure from your druggist 1 ounce of
ParmintMDouble Strength). Take this
home and add to it pint of hot
water and a little granulated sugar:
stir until dissolved. Take one table
; spoonful four times a day. An im
provement is sometimes noted after
the first day's treatment. Breathing
should become easy, while the dis
tressing head noises, headaches, dull
ness. cloudy thinking, etc.. should
gradually disappear under the tonic
action of the treatment. Loss of
smell, taste, defective hearing and
mucus dropping in the back of the
I throat are other symptoms which
: suggest the presence of catarrh and
which . iv often be overcome by this
treatment. It is raid that
neariv ninety per cent, of sll ear
I troubles are caused by catarrh and
there must, therefore, be many people
whose hearing may be restored by
I this simple, harmless, home treat-
I inent.

Bugle Calls Herald the Com
ing of the Auto Trucks in
Waste Bag Collecting
Huge auto trucks are making the
rounds of the city this week. They
are collecting, from house to house,
the bags tilled with waste which tho
residents of Harris burg have saved
in the Nursery Home of Harrisburg
waste bags. From eight in the>
morning until the middle of the aft
ernoon housewives may expect to see
a truck stopped at their door nml
receive a call from one of the col
lectors. -
Besides the crew of collectors of
bags, each truck is manned with a
bugler. His function is to announce
the approach of his truck by a blast
on his bugle. Thus housewives are
warned of the coming of the col
lector before he actually reaches
them. This feature is picturesnne
and unusual and adds to the effi
ciency and speed of the collecting
process. .
The committee in charge reports
a general spirit of enthusiastic sup
port of the campaign. Harrisburg
people are eager to do' their bit to
swell the collection, for the success
of the campaign will bring many
and far-reaching good results. I"

for the balance of the city, and it
will continue to do eo."
"The up-town district is going to
show the balance of Harrisburg the
meaning of the phrase 'universal
membership,'" declared Colonel
Markward at noon, following an in
terview she had with Mrs. Lyman D.
Gilbert, chairman of the Harrisburg
Chapter, at Red Cross headquar
ters. "Our section of the city lias
been most loyal to the Red Cross
and the lntimute knowledge we all
have of the good work it is doing
will mean 'hundred per cent, blocks'
in large numbers."
Mrs. C. H. Hunter of the down
town district—that section of the
cJty south of Forster. said:
"We intend to make it unanimous
down our way. No section of Har
risburg is more patriotic than the
down-town district, and when the
memberships are counted It will be
found that we have done our part."
