Middle Division Traffic
Was Heavy During July
Freight traffic over the Pennsy
lines is steadily Increasing as shown
by the Alidde division records for
the month of July. During the past
month there were 156.402 cars haul
ed over the division, a daily average
of 6,013, not including the inter
change with the Tyrone division.
This is a very substantial increase
over the month of June when there
were 173,919 cars hauled. In July
there were 2,613 trains and in June
there were 2,412. The loaded busi
ness increased by 6,414 cars.
The total movement is now not
"very far behind the record-break
ing war period. In July, 1918, there
■were 210,575 ears, embracing 2,-
813 trains, or a daily average of
6,7 93 cars.

>Stop Itching Eczema
Never mind how often you have tried
and failed, you can stop burning, itching
eczemaquickly by applying a little zemo
furnished by any druggist for 35c. Extra
large bottle, SI.OO. Healing begins the
moment zemo is applied. In a short
time usually every trace of eczema,
tetter, pimples, rash, blackheads and
similar skin diseases will be removed.
For clearing the skin and making it
vigorously healthy,always use zemo, the
penetrating, antiseptic liquid. It is not a
greasy salve and it does not stain. When
others fail it is the one dependable
treatment for skin troubles of all kinds.

Golden Field For F. S. Mcr-i
chants Lies Across the Pa- j
cific, I)r. Mullowney Says
Philadelphia, - Aug. 4.—A new I
sidelight into the complicated East
ern situation was brought to light |
to-day in an interview by Dr. John '
J. Mullowney, formerly attached to
the State Health Department, at I
Harrisburg, who has been working)
in China with the Chinese Ited Cross, j
He has come home recently, en-j
thused with the prospect of our i
future trade with China, which totals
nearly one billion of dollars each
twelve months. Dr. Mullowney be
lieves that America's day in the far
East is only beginning and that
across the Pacific lies the golden
field of opportunity for the Ameri
can merchant.
One of the points he insists upon )
is that we should prevent exploit-j
ation and we should insist that China j
should not be made the dumping]
ground for booze and narcotics that
America is trying to rid herself of''
at the present time.
"China looks to America not only
for protection from the greed and '
ambitions of other nations, but also I
for leadership and for commercial I
fellowship and co-operation. Hod'

was shot and killed last night, while
he was crossing the frontier near

Selecting Grand Jury
to Hear Cases of Men
Arrested in Race Riots
By Associated Press.
Cliicago, Aug. 4. —After the calm
est night in the "Black Belt" for
more than a week the work was
begun to-day of selecting a grand
I jury before which will come the
cases of white men and negroes ac
cused of participation in the race
riots which caused the death of
twenty negroes and thirteen whites
and the injury of hundreds.
The coroner has tixed the num
ber of dead at thirty-three and the
City Health Commissioner has
found that 306 people injured in the
riots were treated in hospitals. He
expressed the opinion, however,
thnt perhaps 400 or more who were
injured in the riots never reported
at hospitals and consequently the
total number of injured will never
be known officially.
The State troops had little to do
during the night in the riot zone,
but much excitement was caused
early to-day by persistent reports
telephoned into headquarters of the
Second Regiment, that a crowd of
500 men was gathering at South
Ashland avenue and West Fifty
ninth street. When a company of
troops reached the scene the crowd
had vanished and the soldiers re
turned to headquarters.

Copenhagen, Aug. 4.—The former
Prince Henry of Prussia in a letter
to King George, published by the
Hamburger Nachrichten, says the
truth about the war may be had
from the Allies' statesmen and he
suggests that if the former German
Emperor is placed on trial the
statesmen also appear.
The letter asks King George "m
the name of justice and his own in
terests" to desist from demanding
the extradition and trial of the for- •
mer German ruler. The letter,
which is signed "Your Humble
Cousin Henry," charges that Eng- y
land plotted Germany's commercial
downfall. . 'f
The letter says: "Germany and
her brave people have been hit se
verely but they are not yet dead.
The German spirit which now
seems dead still lives and will ono
day awaken to full consciousness
of the, disgrace and shame which
have Keen inflicted and will one day
demand a reckoning."
