He said Ireland's case was not

not come within the jurisdiction of
the Peace Conference.

Council. It is understood that
within a few days he will reply sim
ilarly to the questions put by other
labor bodies regarding Shantung
and the representation of the Brit
ish dominions in the League assem
bly. Replying directly to a question
as to his attitude toward self-deter
mination for Ireland, Mr. Wilson
said his position was expressed m
Article eleven of the Covenant, un
der which it is declared that any
member nation can call the atten

stances whatever affecting interna
tional relations which threaten to
disturb international peace "or the
good understanding between na

Find Baby Alive
After floating on the open bay more
than two days, a ten-months old baby
was hauled ashore late yesterday,
fastened to a raft. The baby was
alive and in fairly good condition.
A fisherman of Rock Port, named
Biggins, was carried across Puerto
bay, and more than half way to Sin

left Rock Port in a skiff Sunday, but
was soon adrift, with nothing but
a life belt which carried him until he
was enabled to climb upon a house
top which came in his path. Escap
ing from the chilly waters was little

were a number of large rattlesnakes.

Corpus Christi, Texas, Sept. 17. —
Forty-seven victims of the tropical
hurricane which swept over Corpus
Christi and this section early Sun
day morning had been brought to
the temporary morgue in the county
courthouse last night. In addition
to the deaths in this city, fifty-six
were reported dead in the vicinity of
Portland, across Nueces Bay fri>m
Corpus Christi.
With the death list mounting and
the property loss now placed in the
neighborhood of $10,000,000, the
people of Corpus Christi to-day seem
ingly were Just coming to a full real-
I ration of the catastrophe through
which they passed. Every industry
in the city is prostrated, business is
at a standstill, communication of all
kinds demoralised and the food and
housing problem acute.
Dallas, Texas, Sept. 17.—A staff
correspondent of the Dallas News
sends the following dispatch under
date of Sinton, Texas:
"Seventy-seven bodies, black with
oil until some could not be identi
fied, were washed ashore on the
north side of Nueces bay to-day.
"Of the seventy-seven bodies re
covered from this side of the coast
country to-day, thirty-eight were
taken from West Portland, twenty
nine from White Point, nine from
Sinton and one from Odem."
State machinery for the relief of
storm sufferers was completed late
Tuesday by Governor Hobby, who
ordered units of the Texas National
Guard to relieve Federal troops, in
charge of the Eltuation at Corpus
Christi, as quickly as transportation
could be arranged. The Governor
issued a proclamation urging prompt
contributions of money and supplies.
Three relief trains reached Corpus
Christi to-day with food, bedding,
clothing and medical supplies for
the thousands of homeless and
stricken residents, and other trains
were en route. Two relief trains
were repored stalled by washouts at
Alice, Texas. ■
Seven scout airplanes were or

The companies contended that there

i Bcllevue Park Association En

Dancing After Dusk
There's nothing like a commun

neighborhood interested in each
other and their locality, and so the
fourth annual picnic of the Bellevue
Park Association held yesterday
afternoon in the Oak Woods was a
most delightful and friendly e\ent.
Over a hundred residents and
property owners of the vicinity
gathered for the outing. There wore
games for the children, tennifc,
quoits, baseball for those who cn
• joyed them and the women busied
themselves in various ways.
A general sifpper was served un

work, and it required sanction from

Into effect, but Airs. Jennings did not
hesitate either for lack of uuthorlty
or over the fact that the duties she
proposed to undertake would require
endless work and constant effort on
her own part and for her associates.
She saw the need; that was enough
to prompt her motherly heart to act.
So a letter was written to the
Pennsylvania headquarters, asking
permission to extend the homo serv
ice work to persons outside the Fed
eral war service zone, and the an
swer came back promptly that the
American Red Cross noted with In

The next step was to procure an
appropriation for the work, and the
Chapter set aside S3OO for the ex
"It was like moving in the dark,"
said Mrs. Jennings to-day. "We had
to map out an entirely new Held of
activity, and S3QO seemed like a tiny
sum under the circumstances. But
our fund has been like the widow's
cruse. It is almost as large now
as when we started some months
ago, notwithstanding that thirteen
cases, many of them requiring major
surgical operations and prolonged
hospital care, have been treated or
are about to be. When we need
money for some such case it is
always forthcoming from some one
of the good people of Harrisburg,
and so we are going right ahead,
knowing that somehow the expenses
we incur will be met We are glad
that Harrisburg Chapter Is pioneer
ing in this direction and hope to see
the work extended to all parts of
the country."
Airs. Jennings paid a high compli
ment to Miss Rlngland, the secre
tary, upon whom much of the de
tail falls. She it was who arranged
a conference of influential Red
Cross workers of Dauphin county as
far east as Hummelstown and Lin
glestown, the whole upper end, the
West Shore towns and Perry county,
which constitute the Harrisburg dis
trict, and every one who attended
was instructed to look out for cases
requiring medical attention or any
other kind of home service in their
localities. The result has been re
Mrs. Jennings. Miss Ringland and
Miss Mary Kelker have person
ally visited every home reported,
and in some "oses had to make
three or four trips before they were
able to accomplish what they set
out to do. Mothers either could not
see their children taken to a hos
pital, or the motives of the visitors
were misunderstood, or the children
themselves were opposed. These
and other obstacles had to be over
come, but slowly the kindly, moth
erly attitude of the Red Cross work
ers won the day, and the work has
been made a great success.
The same loving consideration
that has promoted the service is re
sponsible for the withholding of all
names of those benefited. But of
the cases and the results, Mrs. Jen
nings and Miss Rlngland will talk
by the hour.
Some of the Cases
One of the first cases reported
was from the lower end of Perry
County. There Mrs. Jennings and
Alias Rlngland found a little child
suffering from terrible burns, her
face disfigured, her eyes slowly fall
ing and her arms stiffened so she
could not move them from the elbow
down. Bright of mind, attractive of
manner and cheerful of disposition,
this little sufferer is now one of the
model pattents In a great hospital at
Philadelphia, where her sight Is
being restored, the awful sores on
her face are being heaf.id and she
Is able to move her arms.- Under her
pillow is a little pocketbook and a
mirror, which are her treasures.
For weeks the nurse did not know
she had the looking glass, which the
little girl had concealed to watch
her own progress toward recovery,
and every sign of Improvement has
brought with it fresh cheer and
"You. are much .better, Myrtle,"
said Mrs. Jennings on a recept visit.

child. "Every day I' examine my
face, and some time I hope to be

The Next Trip
Mrs. Jennings, Miss Rlngland and
Miss Kelker will make another trip
to Philadelphia on Friday of the
present week, taking with them the
lame lad of Eliznhethvllle and those
others enumerated at the beginning
of this article.
Hilda a Lovable ClUld
Meantime, life is being brightened
for the little lady of Small Valley
who wants to be able to walk and
go to school. The other day Mrs.
Jennings took to her home a black
board, a desk, a set of block letters
and a series of puzzle pictures. Now
Hilda, for that is her first name, is
able to tell all her letters and to
write her name. Hilda has an ex
ceptionally bright mind. She can do
fancy work and embroidery, and she
draws all of her own designs, which
are of unusual merit. Now,
through the kindness of Miss Kol
ker, she Is learning beadwork and
greatly pleased with her progress.
Hers is a lovable disposition and the
Red Cross workers are very fond
of her. .
Others whom Mrs. Jennings and
her assistants have helped are a
9-year-old lad of Williamstown, an
orphan victim of infantile paraly
sis, who has received braces for his
legs and sptaie, and alcohol for rub
bing and milk daily out of the funds
of the Red Cross; a 9-year-old girl
of Willinmstown, orphaned by the
Influenza, furnished with glasses and
throat operation performed; helpless
family In Duncannon tided over ill
ness; Wiconisco child whose eye was
pierced by scissors two years ago,
treated at hospital and spectacles

ters will fo'low and that funds will

invites savings accounts, upon which it will pay interest at 2°/o a year, com
pounded semi-annually.

you already have a savings account, start another one with this strong old
institution for yourself or for someone in whose welfare you are interested.

Creamery Company Begins
Manufacture of Chocolate
For Wholesale Trade
Ell N. Hershey, of the Hershey
Creamery Company, told the mem
bers of the Harrisburg Rotary Club
last evening at the meeting in the
Y. M. C. A., that his company has
embarked on the manufacture of
chocolate bars. At present the com
pany is manufacturing only in ten
pound bars for the wholesale trade,
but as soon as machinery can be pro-
Ccured chocolate will be turned out
by the Hershey Company for the
retail trade. Mr. Hershey distribut
ed samples of his confection last
evening and the llotarians were un
animous in pronouncing it the "best
ever." The club members were Mr.
Hershey's guests and enjoyed ice
cream and what tasted very much
like fresh strawberries put up by
the creamery company. S. H.
Rutherford catered.
It was quite a Hershey evening,
the ex-president of the club being
chairman of the committee on the
philosophy of Rotary, and having as
his assistants E. S. Herman, William
S. Esslck, W. M. McCord and S. 3.
Rutherford, put on a little program
of Rotnry instruction that was very
pleasing to the members of the club
and educational to the new members,
Mr. Hershey, Mr. Essick and Mr.
Herman were the speakers.
Captain George F. Lumb, head of
the State Police, threw a scare into
the club when he threatened to re
sign because "John Olmsted had ul
ieged that he, as head of the Slate
Police, had been heard talking poli
tics," and as the Captain is one of
the most popular members of the
organization the Rotarians were all
"het tip" over the incident until it
was discovered that the date the
resignation was to take effect was
not October 1, 1919, hut October 1.
1999. It was sidetracked midst the
laughter of the club members.

Old Age Deferred
Business men who must speed up the works and make busines
boom during these days—after the war—must recognize the necer
sity of keeping fit. When mind is befogged, when you have du ;
headaches or feel logy, when not "up to snuff," keep the bowe:;
free with a mild laxative. In the morning take a tepid sponge bat
(cold water may be used if it does not chill), follow with a brisk ru >
down; a sufficient "setting up" exercise in good air until you are i::
a warm glow. Have you tried it lately?
Don't let the poisons accumulate in the intestines cither, but tr*
a dose of castor oil the first thing on arising, or a pleasant laxative
occasionally, such as one made up of May-apple, aloin and jalap, rollee
into a tiny sugar-coated pill, and sold in every drug store as Dr
Pierce s Pleasant Pellets. Then a cup of hot water before breakfast,
and you II feel better than a king! If you continue in life thus, you
can pass a Life Insurance examination at sixty.
If you wish to prevent old age coming on too soon, or if you wan
to increase your chances for a long life, you should drink plenty o.
soft (rain) or distilled water daily between meals. Then procure at th
drug store Dr. Pierce's Anuric (anti-uric-acid). This "Anuric" drive
the uric acid out and relieves backache and rheumatism, as well a
dney trouble. Anuric dissolves uric acid as hot tea dissolves su£a:.
