Hod Cross Finds Rumanian
Children in Poor
Borhareat, July 3. The children
of Rumania are the special care of
the American Red Cross nurses who
i are showing Rumanian mothers how to
, care properly for them. They are
distributing infant's clothing, con
denced milk, soap, talcum powder
and everything that contributes to a
baby's comfort. In this field of re

already have shown remarkable re-
j "My Husband and I Are Very
Grateful," Declared Plymouth
"My husband and I are very
gratefel to Natonex for restoring
j health and happiness to oor heme,"
| said Mrs. E. Jones, of 3 4 Walnut
| street, Plymouth. "It was terrible
] to see the suffering m.v husband
would endure after eating only a
! few mouthfuls of food. The pain
| would be so bad it would twist his
' face in agony.
"He would just gasp for breath
, and he was told he had asthma and
j was advised to get away from the
i fumes of sulphur, or it would sure
jly get him. He had rheumatic
I twinges and his nervous system was
so out of order that he would go
i for days without a wink of sleep
i and then it was a strain to keep at
I his work.
"A friend of mine who saw his
I condition advised me to get Natonex.
j She said she knew a woman and
I had been w'th her when she used
' to be up and down every other day
j and Natonex brought her new
health and strength.
"That is how I learned of Naton
ex, and it was wonderful knowledge,
for my husband felt relieved from
the first. The distress after eating
iis only a memory now. The relief
j he has received is nothing short of
j wonderful. His bowels are regular
and his system is rid of gas.
"His breathing is so much easier
j that he is confident this condition
I will disappear altogether. His
j nerves are so improved he now gets
gtod restful sleep. In fact, he is
just getting along splendidly.
"On account of the change
brought about by Natonex. I think
it is only right that I should tell
our experience, hoping others may
do as we did."
; "So many people say the relief
Natonex brings is •wonderful,' but
it is not wonderful at all," said the
Natonex representative. "Isn't it
natural that famous Nature reme
dies, known, trusted and proved for
fifty years and all noted for a special
curatiVfe value, should bring relief
as they are intended to?
"No one doubts the safe, sensible
Natonex Nature remedies. Nothing
secret. Pure as air and sunshine.
Natonex can be taken without a
single misgiving."

The office Scout was never .more

you surprised at the sire of the
crowd? I was, and I'm glad that 1
wasn't one of the men who spoke
for I'd have had stage fright. T'm
sure that no one heard so many fav

Scouting as I did that night, wand

Well, fellows, don't you envy us?
Here we are at Camp Hacoboscam,

Tuesday afternoon under the direc

master, M. C. Piper, and Mr. Lotz,
six of our fellows in Troop 22 stood

automobiles, and nothing more, re

Saturday night we were out in full
bloom however, eighteen fellows pre
sent out of a possible twenty-five,
and three cubs at the Scout camp, we
feel that we did our best. The par
ade was the best Scout parade ever
pulled off in Harrisburg. I have
suits. Th£ condition of the chlldrett
has been wonderfully improved.
The Red Cross workers found the
children in all these war-affected
towns in a pitiful state of impoverish
ment. Many of them were slowly
dying of starvation. Others had pell
agra and malignant skin diseases.
These little ones are now being cared
for and given nourishment and fat
tening foods, such as bacon, jam,
cod-liver oil, etc. They have shown
wonderful improvement since the
Americans came.
War Blighted Lives
All these children have been under
the stress and strain of war for four
years and have really never known
twhat childhood is. In common with
their parents, they have borne the
keenest privations and sufferings.
Since Rumania entered the war they
have not known what it is to play
or to laugh. Hunger has robbed
them of • that spirit. The war has
blighted their lives. No smiles have
come to their faces, no happiness in
to their hearts. They are like flowers
which have never seen the sunshine.
Their wan, pinched little counten
ances tell a tragic story. They have
had neither proper food, shelter nor
clothing. Many of them have lost
either one or both parents.
The Red Cross gives them Ameri
can jam and sweets, the things that
youngsters the world over crave for,
and their dark eyes, frank and mel
ancholy. light up with' a new radi
ance. They become children again.
The Americans give them clothing,
shoes, stockings. They bathe them.

Deatk of Lady Paget
Evokes Eulogies From
Many British Papers
London, July 3.—The death of Lady
Paget, wife of General Sir Arthur
Paget, evoked eulogies of her in
many British papers, which keenly
regret the passing of the American
woman who gladdened so many lives
by her philanthropic work.
For nearly forty years Lady Paget
was a leader of London society. She
made the organizing of entertain
ments for charitable purposes almost
the main business of her life, raising
enormous sums. Her activities along
that line were continued throughout
the war.
Lady Paget was the daughter of
Paran Stevens, an American hotel
man. She, Lady Randolph Churchill
and the Duchess of Manchester, the
Manchester Guardian recalls, "were
a trio of American beauties who
shook the exclusiveness of English
society in the early seventies," when
they made their aristocratic mar
riages and established themselves as
social leaders and friends of King
Edward and Queen Alexandra. Lady
Paget was then described as "a dark,
brilliant young beauty with remark
able blue-black eyes."
Twenty years ago she was crippled
by an accident in an elevator, but it
made no difference to her social and
charitable work. She had four chil
dren, a son who died during the war,
two who were wounded, and a
daughter, Lady Ralph Paget, who
made a name for herself In hospital'
work for the Serbians.
Jap Capitalists
Try to Buy Iron
Deposit in Mexico
Mexico City. July 3.—Japanese cap
italists are trying to close deals In
volving the purchase of the principal
iron deposits in Mexico, according to
El Universal, which paper bases Its
story on rumors in commercial cir
cles. It is said that the deposits in
volved are those of Cerro del Mer
cado, in Durango, the value of which
is increased by the proximity of the
coal mines of Coahuila. The paper
adds that it is proposed to bring to
Mexico thousands of Japanese
crowd of them up to Camp Hacobo
scam to spend the Fourth. They will
take the trolley to Boiling Springs
and then hike the rest of the way.
That will make a line trip.

about the whole affair. Wasn't the

System of Barter
Must Be Established to
Help European Nations
Rome, July 3.—A system of barter
akin to that of pioneer frontier days
In America, but on a more stupend
ous scale presents itself as the modus
operandi of the foreign trade of the
United States in Europe, according
to foreign trade experts of the United
States government investigating the
trade possibilities in Italy.
"Our ability to establish permanent
trade relations with the belligerent
European nations which have been
drained of their resources by war
depends upon our willingness to ac
cept a program of barter in the ex
change of commodities," is the opin
ion given to The Associated Press
correspondent by Dr. Alfred P. Dennis,
United States commercial attache'
"Italy," he added, "needs such of
our raw materials as coal, iron ore,
lumber and petroleum products to
enable her to start up her industrial
processes and begin anew her econ
omic convalescence. She cannot go
on borrowing the money to pay for
our goods. If she is to have them It
must be through swapping her com
modities for ours."

I,ater in the season we expect to
organize a squad with members from

After camp is over I expect to visit
each troop and pick members for

Harry Cooper,
Prime Minister Explains Its;
Interest in the Pro
Toklo, July 3.—Japan occupied at
the Peace Conference a special posi
tion—she was disinterested in the
problems concerned with the Occident
but greatly interested in the ques
tions bound up with the Far Bast—
Takashi Hara, the Prime Minister,
has told the editor of a French maga
zine published at Tokio. The Premier
said: * .
"Japan went to the Peace Confer
ence with the desire to take an active
part in its work and to participate in
all questions that might arise. Why?
Because Japan is sincerely attached
to the cause of right and Justice! She
has proved it by closely co-operating
with the Allies and by subscribing
without reserve to the fourteen pro
positions of President Wilson; she
never hesitated to join with the pro
moters of the League of Nations.
"Like the French, English and
American peoples, we wish a perman
ent peace, better and more open rela
tions between nations, a happier hun
manity. And we believe we are in a
good position to judge things from
the point of view of justice and right
because we had fewer interests under
discussion than Europe and the
United States. Our attiftr.3e> U im
partial and our delegates at Paiv
showed the good faith, sincerity and
openness of our politics.
"However, violent criticisms have
been addressed to us. Japan has been
represented as an ambitious, war
loving, aggressive nation. The pro
ceeding cabinet suffered the same ac
cusations wbich were not merited. 1
can assure you my government is
doing its best not to canse discon
tent; to disregard proceedings which
might be thought to bear a repre
hensive character. The Peace Con
ference has given us an occasion to
show we were not guilty of what
had been reproached to us."
