They Will Be Exchanged
With Swedish Students
to Come Here
New York. July 7.—The names of
ten American college students who
trill receive a thousand dollars each
to enable them to go to P veden to
study in exchange with ten Swedish
students to come to America, are
announced today by the American-
Scandinavian Foundation which ar
ranged the interchange. The men
appointed are:
Samuel G. Frantz. of Princeton, N.
J.. Trinceton University; Harry F.

is proof that American and European
students are freed from the dominance
of German learning and German uni
versities. A few years ago, it is
said, these twenty American and
Swedish students would have gone
to German universities.

Declares Natonex Nature
Products Most Reliable of
all Medicines
"Natonex is not like so many
medicines that only give a little re
lief while you are taking them. I
took Natonex and have found the
good results lasting," stated James
Shepherd, of 106 Washington Street,
Edwardsville, Pa.
Lasting results are what counts
with a medicine. There are many
so-called "tonics" that lift you up
for a time and then let you down
harder than ever. The pure Na
ture remedies in Natonex that
every one knows and understands
work in Nature's way to cleanse,
purify and invigorate the entire
digestive system so that Nature can
build so there will not be a let
"I am 76 years of age and of all
the medicines I ever took I find
Natonex is the most reliable," Mr.
Shepherd explained. "For years
my digestion was bad. I would I
have gas, bloating, a burning sen- j
sation in my stomach and heart- I
burn. I would be constipated and '
my kidneys were not working right. ,
"I was laid up one time for a !
whole year and I spent lots of
money then on medicines. When I
read of the famous old Nature 1
remedies in Natonex it appealed to
me right away. I knew these Na- ;
ture remedies were good. I found i
splendid results from the first and ,
after the third box I had no dread 1
of eating whatever I wanted, for
my system was so cleansed my di- |
gestion was fine. No more gas, i
bloating, sourness or burning. Na
tonex regulated my kidneys, liver
and bowels. My color is healthy
and I have not lost a day's work ,
since Natonex began to build me ;
"I have told all my friends what
Natonex has done for me and I am i
only too willing to recommend such :
a medicine publicly."
As Mr. Shepherd says, Natonex is !
not like other medicines as the en- I
dorsements for it show. No alcohol,
narcotics or other harmful drugs. ,
No secrecy about Natonex. A
chemist combined the best of Na
ture remedies and made a safe,
sensible medicine for weak, ailing,
run down men and women.
Natonex is specially recommend
ed in Harrisburg by the Gorgas
drug store, 16 N. Third street, and
is sold by leading druggists every- j
where. Insist on the genuine and i
don't be disappointed.

i Consider Territorial Feeling
Between Holland and
j Part*. July 7.—Holland has scored
i in the first heat of the diplomatic
I tourney with her neighbor Belgium
j over the clauses of the treaties of
! 1539, which have aroused a good deal
j of feeling on both sides of the Belgo
i Dutch border.
| It was these SO years old treaties
j that gave Holland the Limburg
| "peninsula", the narrow elongated
1 strip of land popularly known as the
j "Dutch appendix", by crossing which,
the Germans in their retreat last fall
1 saved themselves a detour of some
40 miles and possible capture by the
I Allied soldiers.
i The Belgians dug up ancient records
showing that several towns and vil
lagse situated in Dutch Limburg had.
i in the thirties of last century, peti
tioned the first king of the Belgians
; to be joined to his new kingdom.
Although the Dutch Limburgers of
; the present day are said to have no
such desires, an influential section of
Belgian politicians clamored for the
I annexation of Limburg to Belgium.
I Also, to safeguard the future posi
tion of Antwerp, the Belgian annexa
t tionists claimed the territory known
,as Dutch Flanders, situated on the
southern bank of the Scheldt estuary,
which the treaties named had also
| given to Holland.
These territorial claims aroused
a storm of patriotic indignation in
Holland. Queen Wilhelmina visited
i the dispute parts of her dominion,
and there was a good deal of flag
waving and shouting about "dying in
; the last ditch" before giving up nat
, ional territory. The situation was
| becoming unpleasant. Cool-headed
elements in Holland realized that an
estrangement from the Belgium sis
ter nation would be fraught with
disastrous consequences. When a
| conference was called by the five
powers to consider the treaties of
1539, a delegation of eminent Dutch
jurists, came to Paris with the firm
resolve to avoid anything in the nat
ure of a breach with Belgium.
On the cession of territory, how
ever. their instructions were definite,
and the Dutch standpoint has been
upheld by the five great powers.
It ,was agreed to institute a com
mission of seven powers, including
Belgium and Holland. This commis
sion is to examine the proposed revi
sion of the treaties of 1539 and sub
-1 mit proposals "implicating neither
a transfer of sovereignty nor the
creation of international servitudes."
The commission will invite Belgium
and Holland to submit "Joint form
ulas" in the matter of waterways, the
general principles of the Peace Con
ference to be applied as bases for the
The bellicose feeling on both sides
now has almost died down.

Seven Others Injured in Fight
Over High Cost
of Living
By Associated Press.
FTbrcnce. Italy, Saturday, July 5.
One person was killed and seven
were Injured late to-day in a re
newal of yesterday's rioting over the
high cost of living. There has been
much firing by the Caribineers de
tailed to keep order. Mobs again
have becc-me violent and the ran
sacking of shops has been resumed.
All workers are a general
strike order.
During the day goods of ail kind
have been distributed to people un
der the supervision of the mayor
and the* military command. The
distribution was conducted at each
store separately. Large crowds con
gregated at each place so as to be
sure to receive the benefits of the
new prices decreed at 10 o'clock this
morning by the mayor.. All com
modities have been reduced from
50 to 70 per cent.
Lack of organization in opening
the various shops where goods were
requisitioned resulted in crowds
gathering at many points in the city,
where there seemed to be a chance
to obtain food. The plan followed
was for the mayor's commission to
open the store, sell everything in it
at the new prices, then close it and
open another store. The crowds fol
lowing from store to store caused
great confusion.
During these municipally conduct
ed sales, there was no violence.
Scores of soldiers were needed to
avoid too great confusion by the
eager people. There were no hostile
demonstrations during the early part
of the day as there were yesterday.
The new scale of prices put wine,
which is considered a necessary of
life in Italy, at fifteen cents a quart
and bread at six cents a pound. But
ter, sugar, meat and oil prices were
reduced one-half by the mayor's
decree. Other commodities, consid
ered as necessaries, were ordered
sold at 70 per cent, reduction begin
ning this afternoon.
The most active buying was in the
historic Medici chapel quarter where
the new market house is located.
Wood Urges Control
of War Making Here
Crookston, Minn.. July 7. —Major
Geoneral Leonard Wood, in an ad
dress here In connection with the
Ninth Congressional District home
coming celebration, said that Amer
ican soldiers would not fight at the
orders of a European nation or a
group of nations, and that the red
flag must be stamped out in the
United States. Continuing, he said:
"America has a strong national
spirit and Americans will not go to
war under a group of nations, but
under the mandate of our own law.
"The spirit of the training camp
has brought out very forcibly the
desirability of having one language,
and that langauge should be the
language of the Declaration of In
dependence. of the Constitution, of
Washington. Jefferson. - Lincoln,
Cleveland and Roosevelt.
"These are serious times. We
should hold on to the Constitution
of the United States and stand with
our feet on the ground and our eyes
on God. Do not listen with too
much seriousness to dreams. We
believe that arbitration and the
council table will delay war, but we
do not want it to affect the policies
we stand for."
French General to
Head Grave Committee
Paris, July 7.—General de Castelnau
has accepted the position of President
of the National Committee formed to
look after all questions connected
with the graves of French soldiers
and Paul Doumer who, like the gen
eral has lost three sons in the war. is
the vice-president.
Through long years of experience
the clerks in the executive offices at
Washington can sift out the' propa
ganda correspondecne with unfail
ing eyes. Propaganda has always
been the favorite work of a large
number of agitators, although it took
the war to show just what force lies
in the agency. But there is some
thing about a nation-wide propa
ganda that overreaches itself. At
the White House there is no diffi
culty in detecting the inspired let
ters. for they always bring out the
same main idea along the lines sug
gested by the propagandist.
When tlie mail is segregated, the
remainder gets more careful con
sideration. The acknowledgments
that go out for every letter received
at the White House are along stereo
typed lines, but the humblest writer
is assured of attention, and the busi
ness man who has worked out a
thought of his own get a hearing.—
Forbes' Magazine.
Clock dials usually represent the
hours by use of Roman numerals,
but there is one curious variation.
The number four in Roman numer
als is commonly represented by IV,
but on most clock dials it is four I's,
as 1111. There is a reason for this.
It traces back to the ignorance of a
king of France who ruled 600 years
Tradition among watch and clock
makers has it that the clock dial was
first made by Henry Vick in the year
1370. and he made it' for Charles V,
or Charles the Wise, of France.
Charles was not as wise as he looked
or as his name would suggest. When
the dial of the clock was submitted
for his approval he studied It long
and carefully. Finally he remarked,
"The clock is all right with one ex
ception. The figure for 4 o'clock
should be four I's instead of IV."
"Your Majesty is wrong." answered
V|ck. IV is the proper symbol for
Charles bristled up with offended
dignity. and thundered at the timid
clookmaker. "I am never wrong.
Take this dial away and correct
your mistake."
There was nothing else to do. In
all his subsequent clock dials Vlck
was compelled to use the symbol or
dered by his sovereign. Other dial
makers followed his example and
the authority of stuplfl Charles V,
whose bones have been dust for cen
turies, still rules the makers of most
of our watch and clock dials.— Ex
