at tho Joint conference of tho Har
rlsburg Chamber of Commerce com
mittee and Dauphin County

swer the needs of the city. The sise
of the proposed building, kind of
equipment and kindred subjects will

Kidney Trouble Often
Causes Serious Backache
The complexion, digestion and al
most tho complete personality of
woman are dependent upon health.
Woman's ills are her great enemy, as
they cause bad complexion, dark
circles under the eyes, headache,
backache, nervousness, sleepless,
dragging-down pains and the blues,
and often totally unfit her for a com
panion. The great American rem
edy for such conditions is Lydia E.
Pinkkham's Vegetable Compound,
which has been restoring three gen
erations of ailing women to health,
and may be relied upon with per
fect confidence.
Use Soothing Musterole
When those sharp pains go shooting
through your head, when your skull
seems as if it would split, just rub alittle
, Musterole on your temples and neck.
It draws out the inflammation, soothes
away the pain,usually givingquick relief.
Musterole is a clean, white ointment,
made with oil of mustard. Better than
a mustard piaster and does not blister.
Many doctors and nurses frankly
recommend Musterole for sore throat,
bronchitis, croup, stiff neck, asthma,
neuralgia, congestion, pleurisy,rheuma
tism, lumbago, pains and aches of the
back or joints, sprains, sore muscles,
bruises, chilblains, frosted feet—colds
of the chest (it often prevents pneu
monia). It is always dependable.

It's Easy—lf You Know Dr.
Edwards' Olive Tablets
The secret of keeping young is to feel
young—to do this you must watch your
liverand bowels—there'snoneedof hav
ing a sallow complexion dark rings
under your eyes—pimples—a bilious
look in your face—dull eyes with no
sparkle. Your doctor will tell you ninety
per cent of all sickness comes from in
active bowels and liver.
Dr. Edwards, a well-known physician
In Ohio, perfected a vegetable com
pound mixed with olive oil to act on
the liver and bowels, which he gave to
his patients for years.
Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets, the sub
stitute for calomel, are gentle in their
action yet always effective. They bring
about that exuberance of spirit, that
natural buoyancy which should be en
joyed by everyone, by toning up the liver
and clearing the system of impurities.
You will know Dr. Edwards' Olive
Tablets by their olive color. 10c and
25c per box. All druggists.
Don't Catch Cold
or the Influenza may get you yet.
At the flfat *nlffla. sneeze, sore
throat or beadache, take soma
tablets to break up your cold right
at the start. Don't let it get the
best of you. No bad heud effects
as when quinine is taken alone.

For prompt relief from Rheu
matism. Neuralgia, or Lumbago, you ;
can depend on Sloan's Liniment.
The warming, soothing, counter-irri
tant effect is the quickest way to
overcome the inflammation, swell
ing or stiffness. A few drops go
right to the sore part, draw the
•blood from the congested place and
remove the cause of the ache.
The great penetrating power of

"Best I Have Visited For Some
Time, Says the Field
Miss Alice Heyser. Held inspector
for the Pennsylvania-Maryland di
vision of the American Red Cross,
paid a high compliment to the local
chapter yesterday. Her first tribute
was brought forth by her seeing the
rooms full of workers, all busy on
refugee garments. "You have the
beYt attendance of any chapter that
1 have visited for some time," she
said. Nor was this the only tribute
she paid to the local chapter. Other
matters which brought forth tjie
unstinted praise, were tho quantity
and quality of tho work and the
promptness with which the finished
articles are shipped.
The visit of the field inspector at
this time was brought about by an
order from Washington for the
speeding up of work.on refugee gar
ments. The garments, she said, are
for use this winter ,and to be of any
use must be completed at the ear
liest moment possible. A dragging
out of the work will mean untold
suffering. Prompt completion will
mean warmth, health, life to many
The Steelton chapter is making
good progress on the work of refu
gee garments and is shipping them
away as they are completed. More j
workers, of course, will mean great
er speed, and the officers are now j
urging more women to help.

Tho suspension of work at tho 14-
inch rolling mill is not due to any of
tho contemplated changes, but was
caused by a serious breakdown. Work
in this shop will bo repumed as soon
as tho repairs can be completed.

Make Them Wear Like New —
As Did This Canadian
A Canadian army officer, William
Pernberton, of the famous Princess Pat
Regiment, told of the extraordinary
wear given him by a pair of army boots
twice repaired with Neolin Soles.
"Six months of trench warfare under
destructive conditions put the first
pair of Neolin Soles out of business,"
said Lieutenant Pernberton, "but ordi
nary soles would have gone to pieces
in much less time."
Don't throw away shoes that can be
repaired. Have them re-bottomed with
tough, durable Neolin Soles. Any
cobbler or repairman will do the work
for you. The price is no more than
for soles that give less wear. Remem
ber—Neolin Soles are created by science
to be what soles should be. They
are flexible and waterproof as well as
durable.* They come on new shoes of
all styles. They are made by The
Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company,
Akron, Ohio, who also make Wingfoot
Heels —guaranteed to outwear any
other heels.

Drivers for Clmino are thought to
have started the flames while hitch
ing their horses preparatory to
going to work this morning, when
they dropped lighted cigarets. The
flames broke out about 6.30 o'clock,

Income Tax Changes
by Senate Agreed to
Washington, Jan. 9.—Senate con
ferees won the preliminary skirmish
to-day in joint conference with those
appointed by the House over the
$6,000,000,000 war revenue bill, when
the House conferees accepted the
Senate amendments to the normal
income tax and surtaxes and the
amendment exempting state and mu
nicipal bonds from income tax. It
was the first meeting of the con
ferees since the bill was passed by
the Senate ten days ago.
From the start made to-day, it is
expected that the conferees will be
able to complete their work within
two weeks and that the measure will
be back in the Senate and House
before the last week of the month.
A fight will corne on thfc excess profits
tax, which was appreciably changed
in the Senate.
The income tax amendment ac
cepted by the conferees to-day em
braces a rate of six per cent, on the
amount of net Income, up to $4,000
for the calendar year 1918, and a
rate of 12 per cent, for incomes
above $4,000. with deductions of
$2,000 for married men and $l,OOO
for single men. After 1918 the rate
is fixed at four per cent, on the first
$4,000 and eight per cent, above that
The surtax rates start at one per
cent, on incomes ranging from $5,000
to $6,000 and run up to 65 per cent,
on irtcomes exceeding $1,000,000.
These differ from the House rates in
that the latter started at two per
cent, on incomes frpm $5,000 to
$7,500,000 and ran up to 65 per cent,
on incomes above $5,000,000.

Heal Skin Diseases j|
It is unnecessary for you to suffer
with eczema, blotches, ringworm, rashes
and similar skin troubles. Alittle zemo,
obtained at any drug store for 35c, or
SLOO for extra large bottle, and prompt
ly applied will usually give instant relief
from itching torture. It cleanses and
soothes the skin and heals quickly and
effectively most skin diseases.
Zemo is a wonderful, penetrating,
disappearing liquid and is soothing to
the most delicate skin. It is not greasy,
is easily applied and costs little. Get
it today and save all further distress.

Life's Problems
Are Discussed
"Set me as a seal upon thine
heart, as a seal upon thine arms;
for love is storing as death, jeal
ousy is cruel as the grave."
That verse of exquisite poetry
came into my mind the other day
after receiving a letter from a girl,
in which sho confessed that she
suffered tortures of jealousy.
She says: "Will you please tell
me what can overcome my pet fault,
"1 am past twenty years pf age,"
[ she goes on, "and should have bet
ter sense, but I cannot seem to con
quer this dreadful enemy.
"In order to give you an idea of
how it affects me, I will tell you
some of the things of which I am
jealous—friends, both men and
women; favors bestowed on others, I
, attention to anyone except myself. 1
"You see, I am not sparing my- j
self; for 1 know only too well that
I am a victim of consuming jeal
ousy, and am only too anxious .to
overcome it.
"I know, too, that I am jealous
[lots of times when I have no cause.
For instance, I am jealofis at times
of some person paying attention
to another when I Inure no pos
sible right to expect it for myself.
Y'ou see how hopeless I am. but I
do hope you will be able to help^me.
"Might I add that I never, or at
least very seldom—for 1 may as
well be truthful —give exhibitions of
my jealousy? I succeed pretty well
in concealing it But, oh, if I only
knew some way of overcoming it!
Poor, little "Girl with the Green
Eyes," your letter gave me a differ
ent idea of jealousy from any I had
ever held before, and I immediately
sat down and began to think about
What is jealousy anyway? It is
evidently not one of our ills of the
flesh, neither a disease of the mind;
but rather of the emotions—one of
those ailments which are psycho
logical and which grow by indul
gence. '
Why do you feel jealous of your
friends? Because you think you are
losing something that should belong
to you. Why are you jealous of
favors bestowed on others? Because
you want to be the recipient of all
the favors that are being passed
around. Why do you feel injured
when you see some one in whom
you have no interest paying atten
tion to another to whom you are
equally indifferent? Because you
want all the attention that any one
has to give.
Those are the only conclusions to
be drawn from your statements, but
they are so absurd that you will
laugh when you see them. Y'ou will
say: "No; of course I do not mean
that. It is, just that when I see
those things, I feel jealous in spite
of myself."
Let's analyze the subject further.
Jealousy is a form of covetousness,
and covetousness leads to miserli
ness. It is a craving sense of pos
session. The reason some people
are misers and some are inordin
ately jealous is because they have a
sense of lacking something.
Y'ou, my dear, do not see your
self in a true perspective. Y'ou need
a re-appraisal of yourself. Y'our
sense of proportion is faulty. Does
this seem vague and cryptic?
Well, consider the matter more
fully. You are jealous of others for
possessing qualities that you envy,
powers of attraction that you fancy
are denied you. Did you ever stop
to think that at the same time they
may be envying you for qualities or
charms they feel are not theirs?
You are overlooking and belit
tling your own possessions; namely,
your gifts, your tAlents, your good
qualities, your charm of appear
ance or personality. A mistake.
Y'ou should rejoice in these things
and recognize them.
Y'ou only want what is your own,
do you not? Then realize that you
have within yourself the power to
draw to you everything that is truly
your own. But you will say: "Then
why do I not do so?" It is because
you put the wail of an irrational
Jealously between them and you.
You may think you conceal it, but
what we conceal we always reveal
in one way or another.
It is natural and right to wish
others to think well of you; but you
would not care to be embarrassed
by drawing to yourself a host of
friends who were entirely uncori
genial, or to be pursued by the love
which means nothing. You only
want what is your own, what is
freely and spontaneous'y given you
—that which your individuality
seeks and craves and needs. You
cannot coerce love or friendship,
and then tack them down in the
effort to hold them.
So cultivate a more flattering and
therefore truer opinion of yourself.
You reserve for yourself the right
to select your own friends, und to
•bestow favors on whom you choose;
give others the same freedom. And
whenever the demon of Jealousy
whispers to you laugh at it, assert
that you are quite free from Its in
fluence—and ultimately you will be.

Supreme Court Hits Wests;
"Two-Thirds" Vote Upheld
Washington. Jan. 9.—One of the
main points on which the liquor in
terests hoped to overthrow the na
tional prohibition amendment was
knocked sky high when the Supreme
Court yesterday decided the "two
thirds of a quorum" question.
It is certain that the liquormen
will test the legality of the prohibi
tion amendment before the Supreme
Court. One of the points they
planned to raise was that the reso
lution was not adopted by two-thirds
of the House, but by two-thirds of
those voting, although a quorum was
present. ♦
The ehse at issue yesterday came
up from Kansas. The Missouri-
Faeific Railway Company was
charged with illegally taking liquor
into the state. The defense was
raised that the Wybb-Kenyon act is
unconstitutional, because it was
passed over the President's veto with
a bare quorum of the Senate present.
Chief Justice White handed down
the opinion of the court. He thus
states the point raised by the de
"The proposition is this: That, as
the provision of the Constitution ex
acting a two-thirds vote of each
house to pass a bill over a veto
means a two-thirds vote not of a
quorum of each house' but of all the
members of the body, the Webb-Ken
yen act was not enacted into law,
because, after its veto by the Presi
dent, it received in the Senate votes
of only two-thirds of the Senators
present, a quorum, which was less
than two-thirds of all the members
elected to and entitled to sit in that
In his conclusions Chief Justice
White holds that from the beginning
of the government the rule has pre
vailed that a quorum of the Senate
and House constitutes those bodies
and can transact any business. This
includes amendments to the Consti
tution and passing bills over the
President's veto.
The matter is pronounced one of
the utmost importance by Chief Jus
tice White.
