Public Must Be Careful To
Avoid A Second Epidemic.
Easier To Prevent Than
Cure. What To Do.
"Encouraging reports of the fewer
cases of Influenza in this vicinity
should not allow us to relax our
vigilance or to become cureless in the
belief that the danger Is all over,
savs a well known authority. With
the coining ot cold weather there is
apt to be a return of this frightful
epidemic and its seriousness will de
pend on tlie extent of the precau
tions, taken by the public, to prevent
inf When tlie air is full of influenza
germs, vol! may be constantly
breathing them into your nose and
throat. But their danger may be
■ voided and you may make yourself
practically immune to infection it
you destroy Hie germ before it actu
ally begins work in your biood.
OurinK llH' recent serious epidemic
which hit Harrisburg so hard, most
successful results were obtained by
many through tlie simple breathing
Into tlie nose, throat and lungs ot
the medicated ail' of oil of liyomei.
Probably no better, safer or more
sensible precaution against Influ
enza, Grippe, Coughs, Colds, Bron
chitis or Catarrh of Hie n;e und
throat could be employed than to go
now to the nearest drug store and
get a complete Hyomei outlit con
sisting of a bottle of the pure Oil of
11 vumei and a little vestpoeket hard
l übber inhaling device into which a
lew drops of the oil are poured.
Carry this inhaler with you dur
ing the duv and each half hour or
s<> put it in vour mouth und druw
~ee|i breaths of its pure healing
germicidal air into the passages of
\i.ur nose, throat and lungs to de-
Micy any genu.- mat may nine round
lodgement there. This simple pre
caution may save you a serious ilt
-1 ess and Hie loss of several weeks'
work It is pieasant to use and not
i 1 all expensive as the Inhaler will
* last a lifetime and further supplies
1,1 the Oil of Hyomei can be iiad at
bll y drug .store lor u in, n,i ...
Hundreds of people 111 Hils vicinity
used Hyomei in tills way during tlie
leceni crisis and 1 voided danger,
n uov should not neglect it now for
the danger is by 110 means over.

During the past year, the Presby
terian State Federation gained more
than 200,000 members, the report ot
the Rev. William L. kludge, of Cham
bersburg, to the Synod, shows The.
"Report of the Committee of Chutch
Federation of the Synod of Pennsyl- ,
vania," as presented by the Rev. Mr. j
kludge, follows in part: ,
"There are now the following f e( j- !
orations in the Synod: The State l*et -
oration, which holds its annual meet- j
ing in this city next week. This fed- ,
oration has been in existence for (
seven years. It is composed of eleven
denominational bodies. In 1016
gates representing 683,500 communl- |
eant church members were present. |
Last year the number was 868,500, a ,
gain of almost 200,000. A committee
was recently appointed to raise a,
budget of $6,000, so as to establish j
a well-equipped office with a paid
secretary who will give his full 1
to the work. Plans have already
been made by whicli it is hoped to
secure this sum during the coming
winter The State Federation has
been invaluable in organizing local
federations and in developing the
spirit of interdenominational activity
along many lines. A survey has been
made of different sections of the
state showing the need of comity
work. One of the most notable of (
these has been the survey of Center ,
county, with Spring Mills as a center. 1
With the State Federation your com- ,
mittce has been constantly co-oper- ,
aling, and has done much to make j
it possible. It asks for your prayer- ;
ful interest and hearty co-operation ,
in its splendid work. J
"With these in mind let us briefly j
summarize the results of another 1
year under these heads;
"1.. Comity
"Besides the principles which the I
State Federation has adopted and 1
the surveys it lias made the report,
comes from the Presbytery of Pliila- |
dolphia that 'the Church Federation j
of Philadelphia, through its comity,
committee, has entered upon a period j
of new life and great signiiicance to j
the community by the enlistment of ,
the co-operation of the Home Mis-
sionary Superintendents of the sev- ,
eral denominations who constitute \
an integral part of the committee.' j
"In Carlisle Presbytery, the Fed-1
crated Church at McConnellshurg;
continues to prosper under the work !
and iniiuenee of a new pastor and j
the Classis of Mercersburg of the i
Reformed Church and the Presby- j
tery are further developing their j
"11. Evangelism
"The evangelistic work has been
greatly interrupted during the past
yar because of the epidemic and war j
"In Chambersburg, under the au-i
spices of the Franklin County Fed- I
eration, an evangelistic campaign!
was about to begin when the|
churches were closed. This campaign
was to have eventually included the I
entire county.
"111. Social Service
'"fliis has not been forgotten. The
Beaver Federation reports progress
in temperance reform and law en- ;
"Work along similar lines lias been
accomplished by the Pittsburgh and
Steelton Federations, the Federation
of the Twenty-iirst ward and vicin
ity, Philadelphia, and the Federation ;
of Franklin county.
"The Federation of Johnstown has .
been active in making drives for re- ;
lief work among the Armenian and 1
Syrian refugees and in recruiting for 1
the Army and Navy. Under the in-j
fluence of the Easton Federation a 1
committee was organized which has
been composed of Protestants, Cath
olics and Jews. This committee has
been showing a fine spirit of patriot
"The Philadelphia Federation has
placed special emphasis here. 'ln co
operation with federal agents, in
vestigation and prosecution have
( been conducted and the services of
! an attorney engaged.' A special com- |
mittee on War Industries has secured
the services of a minister who is rep
resenting the Protestant denomina
tions in pastoral work at Hog island.
"In Franklin county the Federa
[ tion has had a most active war work
[ committee. It helped to form a Com
mittee on Churches and Religious
i Organizations for the Fourth Liberty
Loan drive. It has assisted in the
establishment of what has been
called by truck train officers 'the best
canteen in the Middle States' and
committees composed of members of
the various churches have super
vised and engaged in the activities
of the different departments. It was
the Federation which also secured
the co-operation of the churches, the
Council of National Defense and the
1 Red Cross in caring for thousands of
! sufferers in the county during the
; epidemic. Emergency hospitals and
| community kitchens were estnblish
!ed in towns where they were most
1 needed and a most effective ministry

talities would have been much great

Siliinre \ut Designated
City Solicitor Fox then said lie had
been requested by City Commissioner
] C. W. Burtnett to construe the ordl
i nance passed by Common Council in
1913 under which the loan of $25,000
was authorized and public comfort
i stations.
j Solicitor B"ox said he did not be-
I lieve that the ordinance meant the
! ccmfort station, or stations, should
I be constructed in Market Squiire as
council could very easily have drawn
up the ordinance to read "footwalk
I and comfort stations In Market
] Square." Tha ordinance as approved
I and the loan as passed provided for
' the expenditure of $25,000 for a
I "footwalk on Market Square and
I public contort stations."
Wording Miscountrurd
He explained that by putting the
word "station" in the plural form in
the ordinance would give council the
right to construct such improvements
' not only in the central part of the
j city but also on Allison Hill or up-
I town.
"One of these might or might not be
in the Square. 1 don't believe Council
lis limited to Market Square. The
| question of practicability also must
!be considered. Increasing need of
i parking space and roadway for traf
i lie might make it very inadvisable to
put a comfort station there."
I The opinion of the late City Soli
; eitor Daniel S. Seitz was then men
j tioned and City Clerk R. Ross Sea
| man was /requested to read it to
| council. Solicitor Seitz in this opin
i ion declared that council has no au
! thorlty to erect any superstructure
I in the Bquare because of state legis
i lation prohibiting it.
Favors Safety Isle
' Commissioner Lynch, who intro
duced the ordinance which suggests
i constructing the comfort station next
to the courthouse, said he would not
ask for any further action on the
measure until it is decided whether
u new courthouse will be built.
.Mayor Ketster told the other of
ficials of the increasing need of
parking space and said he favored
the construction of an isle of safety
or footwalk in the Squnre, followed
by a city ordinance which would per
mit parking machines against the
curbing of the safety zone instead of
along the street line as at present.
He said that from plans which have
been considered the parking area in
the Square will be greatly Increased.
Other officials agreed with the mayor.
Solicitor Fox was then' asked
whether all of the $25,000 loan au
thorized could be used for comfort
stations. He gave ft verbal opinion
that It could not and thnt some of the
money, probably $5,000, Should be
used for t'oe Isle of safety In the
Square. City Engineer M. B. Uow
den estimated the improvement pro
posed by Mayor Ketster would cost

("aides Hale Instructions
In a message to the New York
I American on February 24, 1917,
j Mr. Hearst outlined instructions to
i bo cabled to Williuin Bayard Hale,
' then a Hearst correspondent In Ber
lin and who. according to evidence
I recently produced was on the Ger-
I man payroll without Hearst's knowl
| edge. Mr. Hearst said he believed
| a vast majority of the people in
■ America and Germany opposed the
' United States entering the war and
i concluded 'we earnestly desire to
i employ the influence of our country
I not for the extension and protrac
' (ion of the war, but for the promo
| tion of a just and lasting peace."
I A message dated March 2. sign

• Carvalho, Ned York American, de
. clpred the famous Zimniermann note
i in which Germany proposed an ulli
| ance with Mexico and Japan and
. which the Associated l'ress revealed
j to the world, probably was a forgery
prepared by the attorney general.
The object of the "forgery" the

Professor Albert Bushnell Hart,
of Harvard University, pointed to
his record and to his published arti
cles on the war as evidence that his
nunie had no place on the German
"list of important names" in the
committee's investigation of German
Professor Hart described his ac
quaintance with pro-Germans and
declared he had not shared their
views at any time. He said he re
fused to join the German University
Alliance at the invitation of Otto
Merkel, of New York, because he
did not wish to become identified
with such an organization. If he
were properly classed as a pro-Ger
man he declared, his associates in
Harvard and elsewhere could prop
erly class him as a hypocrite and
he cited many articles written by
him and published in New York
newspapers and elsewhere in which
he condemned the violation of Bel-
The message of March 2, signed
"Doctor," said in part.
"Agree with Francis Zinimermann
note all probability absolute fake and
forgery, prepared by very unscrupu
lous attorney general's very unscrup
ulous department. Everybody knows
that the secret police are the most
conscienceless manufacturers . of
forged evidence in the world. . . .
Gregory's whole career in office as
Francis showed in recent editorial,
has been a spy sent here and plot
conceiver. He has not been bound
by morals, facts or the constitution.
He has employed the secret service
to enforce England's unlawful or
ders. He has attempted to put a
bill through Congress to make any
criticism of his acts or of the Presi
dent's acts or of any political move
or measure treasonable and punish
tblc as such.
"He is violently pro-British. He
is surely violently pro-corporation.
He is located where he can do the
corporations the most good and he
has been unwilling to be removed or
I they have been unwilling to have
| him removed, even for a position on
1 the supreme hench. He and Burle-
I son are House's appointments and
House has been a corporation lobby-
I ist all his life. . . .
"The object of the Zlmmcrmann
! forgery was to frighten Congress in
' to giving the President the powers
1 that he demanded and perhaps also
i into passing the espionage bill. When
I Wilson wanted to give away the
rights of the United States in the
Panama canal he pretended that he
had private information of a dan
gerous international situation suf
ficient to justify his acts. He has
never revealed his private informa
tion and no one believes that he
ever had any.
"He could not repeat this false
claim on this occasion, so a com
plaisant cabinet officer this time un
! dertook to manufacture much
I false evidence to enable Wilson to
have his way. It is possible that the
I British secret service co-operated in
I those plans. The only serious eon
i sequence is that the whole people of
I this country, ninety per cent, of
I whom do not want war, may be pro
i Jected into war because of these
misrepresentations and these forged
documents, if they are forged. . . .
"If we do not want to say all this
editorially, we can suy part of it edi
toriully, und get someone to stand for
Interview as Hale used to do to bring
all 'hese points out, especially those
about the probable forgery of the
note. We should develop the for
gery phase of the note for the Sun
day paper, if Francis and I seem to
be right."
A message dated February 21,
1917, uddressed to Philip Francis, in

New York, Dec. 10.—The authen
ticity of the note sent by Dr. Alfred
Zimmermann, the German foreign
secretary, to the German minister
to Mexico, as published in the United !
States in March, 1917, was admitted!
in dispatches from the German |
capital shortly after the publication
of the note In this country. The I
subject, in fact, came up at a ses
sion of the Reichstag budget com
mittee on March 5. The Berlin wire
less dispatch which reported tike de
bate stated that the committee "ex-j
pressed regrets at the misfortune |
which resulted in the interception of j
Foreign Secretary Zinimermann's
note," but that "responsibility for;
its loss" could not be tlxed until for-|
mer Ambassador Von He, .istorlT ar-I
j rived from the United States.
Dr. Zimmermann resigned the for
eign secretaryship in July of the]
I same year, and it was considered at

owners are not entitled to any dam
ages for improvements since that
time. t
Property Owners Appeal
I While a number of the owners ac
cepted the amounts • awarded by
viewers appointed to fix duinnges
for the properties to be taken over
on the west side of the street, others
appealed to the court and had the
I eases tried before juries ai a special
session. Legal points question
were argued later after which Judge
S. J. M. McCarrell gave his ruling
that the city must not only pay for
all properties which had been erect
ed until 1871, but also for improve
ments since that time.
Recently cases in which verdicts
had been returned in suits of the city
to assess benefits on properties on
the east side of Front street, from
Herr to I'alder streets, because of
the proposed improvements on the
west side, were tried. In one of
these cases the jury returned a ver
dict in favor of the property owner
and in another in favor of the city
for $1,500 benefits.
City Moved For Retrials
City Solicitor Fox made motions
for new trials in both cases stating
to the court in argument session,
that in the first case all the evidence
produced by the city, and even two
of the witnesses for the property
owners fixed the benefits; while in
the second case the verdict was
much lower than the amounts
which were given by realty experts.
These cases are now under advise
ment and the court will hond down
opinions later. There are a number
of other similar actions to be dis
posed of and Solicitor Pox said he
may ask the court in the near future
to fix a date for a special session to
try these suits.
City officials said they will take
no action until the legal questions
have been settled after which plans
will be made at once to rase the
buildings and complete the improve
ments along the river front.

| If you have roaring, buzzing
noises in your ears, are getting
hard of hearing and fear Ca
tarrhal Deafness, go to your
druggist and get 1 ounce of
, Ham,nit (double strength), and
add to it I/4 pint of hot water
and a little granulated sugar.
Take 1 tablespoonful four times
a day.
This will often bring quick
relief from the distressing
head noises. Clogged nostrils
should open, breathing become
easy and the mucus stop drop
ping into the throat. It is
easy to prepare, costs little
and is pleasant to take. Any
one who lias Catarrhal trouble
, of the ears, is hard of hearing
or has head noises should give
this prescription a trial.
