    Keystone Prisoners
J Led Revolt Against
The German Guards
Philadelphia. March 5. —How men
of Pennsylvania's famous Iron Divi
sion engineered a revolt against the
German guards at a prison camp,
who continued their brutality to
ward Allied prisoners even after the
signing of the armistice, was told
today by Wilfred Melia.
*' Melia, a former Philadelphia
newspaperman, was a member of
Company C, of the 110 th Infantry,
nnd saw service with the Twenty
eighth Division in the big battles
which enabled that organization to
gain fame as a fighting unit.
Melia landed in New York yester
day on the transport Lorraine.
After November 11, Melia asserted
the German guards at the prison
camp were just as arrogant as ever,
and on the afternoon of November
16 they willfully fired upon two
peaceful Frenchmen, who had been
interned for many months, nnd who
had in no way violated any of the
regulations. Inasmuch as the war
had virtually ended, and there was
absolutely no way for the men to
obtain any protection against such
outrages—there was really no one

Dangerous Weakness
Follows Influenza
There Is Real Danger in
the After-Effects of—
This Treacherous
Those who have survived an
attack of dreaded influenza
find their strength taxed to the
utmost, and the entire system
in a weakened and nerveshat
tered condition. For this dis
ease is intense in its severity,
and its after-effects arc as
much to be guarded against as
the disease itself.
The pain-racked body is in
such a debilitated condition
that the vitality is at a low ebb,
the strength returns very slow
ly, and the patient becomes de
spondent because of 4iis help
lessness. And unless is a
full restoration to his former
robust condition, he is liable to
fall an easy prey to any ordi
nary illness. In other words,
there is danger of a permanent
injury to the system.
You owe it to yourself to re
gain your full strength and
health just as completely and
promptly as possible, and to
take all precaution to avoid the
after-effects of the disease.
Ibis you can do by giving na
ture such assistance as is
needed in rebuilding the waste
tissue and restoring tlwe
strength and vitality.
All waste tissue must be re
built and all lost strength must
be restored through the blood
supply, for through this vital
fluid alone can the damage be

who had any authority—the prison
ers decided to take the matter in
their own hands'. As a result there
was a general clean-up the follow
ing morning, aud the Hun guards
were routed.
But the trouble did not end there.
The Germans immediately mounted
machine guns on buildings over
looking the camp and for a time it
appeared as though the prisoners,
numbering more than 1,000, and in
cluding Americans, British, French,
Belgians, Italians and Russians,
would pay a heavy price for their
efforts to avenge the deaths of the
Frenchmen. But meanwhile word
of the contemplated outrage reached
the Spanish consul in Mannheim,
who quickly warned the Huns that
such conduct would not be counte
nanced. 'They heeded this advice,
strange to say, and did not molest
the men further. All of the incar
cerated soldiers were released not
long afterward.

second floor apartment of Mrs. G. M.
Sellers, in the Donaldson building.
From the Donaldson apartment a
gold nugget and chain, set with a
large sapphire, and a red leather
bound volume were taken. At Mrs.
Buch's apartment the person net

money and some other articles.

with the germs of grippe and
influenza, the blood is thin and
weak and must have help in its
stupendous task of rebuilding
the system, and restoring the
strength and buoyant vitality
to the stricken body.
Just here is where S. S. S.
has proven such a valuable aid,
for it is without question the
most efficacious blood purifier
ever discovered. This reliable
old remedy, which has been
sold by druggists for more than
fifty years, was first used by
the Indians, who discovered the
medicinal value of the roots and
herbs of the forest, and has
been used with the greatest
success for more than half a
S. S. S. is the one remedy
that is so useful in repairing
the damage done by influenza
and grippe, because it promptly
enriches the blood supply, and
fills the veins with new life and
vitality, which in turn rebuild
the waste tissue throughout the
system. No matter how long
since you have had this disease,
you should begin at once to
take S. S. S., which will do so
much in putting the system
back into perfect physical con
And remember, too, that
avoiding disease is simply a
matter of keeping the system in
[perfect condition, so that those

Watch the tongue of your young!
Children droop and wither i! you permit constipation

Hurry! Give Cascarets to clean the little clogged-up
liver and bowels. Children love harmless Cascarets because
Cascarets taste like candy—only 10 cents a box! Grand!.
When a child's tongue turns white, breath feverish, stomach sour,
mothers can always depend upon safe old "Cascarets" to gently, yet
thoroughly clean the little liver and bowels. Cascarets are just dandy
for children. They taste like candy and no child need be coaxed to
take them even when cross, bilious and sick. Each 10 cent box contains
directions and dose for children aged one year old and upwards.
