Hides Under Straw in an Old
Cart Until She Reaches
New York. Oct. 7.—The thrilling
story of how Dr. Aldona Sluipus,
five years ago a student In Philadel
phia's Woman's Medical College,
made her escape from the Bolshevists
in a Lithuanian vegetable cart, hid
den under the straw, has just come
to the headquarters of the Ameri
can Belief Administration European
Children's Fund.
Dr. Sliupus, who came to tlte
United States from Lithuania when
she was very young, returned to her
mother country shortly after she
could write "doctor" before her
name. As soon as the war broke
out she plunged into helping her
stricken countrymen worked in
canteens, did welfare work, anything
she could—always with the partic
ular object of helping the children.
Such was her success with these lit
tle ones that a few months ago she
was put at the head of all children's
relief in Lithuania.
She is co-operating with repre
sentatives of the American Relief
Administration European children's
fund and had gone to a frontier town
about 50 miles from Kovno to estab
lish a soup kitchen for the Lithu
anian refugees that come tumbling
over the Russian border "going
home." The victorious Bolsheviks
came over the border, too, and cut
her off from the rest of Lithuania.
Undaunted, she dressed herself in
Keep Sloan's the World's I /inlmcnt,
Handy to Allay Aclics
THOUSANDS of men and women,
when the least little rheumatic
"crick" assails them, have
Sloan's Liniment handy to knock it
out. Popular a third of a century
ago—far more popular to-day.
That's because it is so wonderfully
helpful in relieving all external
aches and pains—sciatica, lumbago,
neuralgia, overstrained muscles,
stiff joints, weather exposure re
sults. A little is all that is neces
sary, for it soon penetrates without
rubbing to the sore spot. Leaves no I
muss, stained skin, clogged pores. '
A bottle to-day is a wise precaution.

rags and climbed into the back of a
furmer's cart bound for Kovno. Bol
shevik officers never thought to look
for her there, though the cart was
stopped several times. When, on
reaching safety in Kovno, she found
preperations were being made by the
children's fund representatives there
to "rescue" her in an airplane.
Governor of Korea
Points to American
Strides in Industry
Seoul, Korea, Oct. 7. Admiral
Baron Saito, the new governor of
Korea, appeals, in an interview in
tho Seoul press, to Japanese and
Koreans alike to co-operate and
"preserve brotherly relations" in de
veloping the resources of the penin
"It is especially to be hoped that
Korean leaders will pay great at
tention to this," the Baron said. "We
must learn from the Americans in
tins respect. If we are industrious
enough we may convert even the
barren land into a fertile one.'
To emphasixe this suggestion the
Baron described the rapid develop
ment of the iron industry in the
United States, attributing this in
part to the enterprise of Americans.
Pointing out that the present is a
period of the greatest moment in
the destiny of the Japanese empire,
the Baron said, Japan as one of the
great powers stood in a position
where even her minor actions would
effect the general situation of the
world the tesponsibility of the
Japanese people had become heav
ier than ever.
Drouth and Forest
Fires Ravage Montana
Helena, Mont., Oct. 7. —Disastrous
conditions now obtaining in the state
of Montana are revealed in a sur
vey of the Episcopal diocese of the
state just forwarded to the' execu
tive committee of the church's
Nation-wide campaign in New York.
Drouth, unprecedented in its ex
tent and effect, and forest fires per
haps the most widespread on record,
are ravaging the wooded and the
agricultural districts, according to
the survey.
Crops are practically a total loss,
because of the drouth. The range
is reported "burnt up." Cattle men,
the survey states, are shipping their
stock out of Montana, a part to be
fed in other states.
The forest fires have been raging
for two months. They have come
dangerousy near to several Montana
cities and they are not yet entirely
under control. So great has been
the emergency that a special session
of the legislature has been held to
devise measures for relief.
The population of the state, the
survey shows, has been steadily de
creasing since 1916. The leakage
from that year until the present
time is estimated at 125,000. There
is hardly a city or town, according
to the survey, in which the popula
tion is not fluid.

last year by the State Game Commis

hunters in the counties of the State
expires this month. The grouse •

sume his duties at once.
Tlie point was raised at an argu
ment before the Public Service Com
mission in the rehearing: application
of the Pittsburgh Transportation
Company that an auto bus company
or any other public service company
is not required to appear for the
right to begin business after the
commission has once passed upon
the charter application and granted
it. The commission some time ago
issued an order restricting the com
pany to certain routes upon com
plaint of the Pittsburgh Railways
Company. A rehearing was asked.
C. K. Robinson, for the transporta
tion company, raised the question
of whether two applications were
really necessary. Joseph R. Mc-
Neary, of the railways company, de
clared that if that view was taken
there would be "dynamite" In many
Enlistment of fifteen overseas
service men in the Pennsylvania
State police force last week will be
followed by enlistment of as many
more within a short time, as there
have been numerous applications
from men who served in the army
in France. Including some machine
gun battalion men, for admission to
the force. Only men who have
served in the army or navy are be
ing enlisted now and some of the
men who went from the State force
into the army are now being taken
back. Organization of the new
troop will be finished at Lancaster
in a short time, but it is Improbable
that it will be moved to Harrisburg
until next summer, when the bar
racks will be built.
Changes in the new State Capitol

British Army Will
Retain the Educational
Plan Started on Rhine
London, Oct. 7. Educational
training in the British army, which
was begun among the forces occu
ping the Rhine, not only is to be
continued in the new army, but it
will be virtually compulsory. It is,
an army order states, "to be re
garded as an essential element in
the making of a soldier and an
army." Steps have been taken to
| continue educational training for all
I soldiers going overseas.
An official told the Associated
Press correspondent it was under
stood that the three cardinal divi
sions of higher commercial and
technical education, which were
taught on the Rhine, will be retain
ed and developed.
According to President H. A. L.
Fisher, of the Board of Education,
"the mere recognition of the fact
that education is henceforward to
be an essential part of army training
is one of those great steps forward
in the social progress of the world

New German Measure Hits
Virtually Every House
hold Necessity
Berlin, Oct. 7. —None of the new
German tax meaures is more strin
gent and all-inclusive than the
turnover tax, especially that part of
it relating to luxuries. Virtually
every thing imaginable beyond the
veriest necessities for the household
are taxed all the way from 1 to 15
per cent at the store where they are
There are 19 categories of luxu
ries, 11 of which come under the 15
per cent clause.
The taxes will vary in severity, ac
cording to the price of the articles
purchased, since in this way the
government hopes to put the great
est burden on the wealthy.
The taxes will be collected in two
ways. Where it is possible, the seller
will add the tax to the price of the
article and turn it in to the gov
ernment. In the case of articles
manufactured in one place and sold
by retail everywhere, the retail
dealers will collect the tax.
The government reckons that the
turnover tax will total 4,500,000,000
marks. This sum must be reduced
by one-tenth, to four billions, to take
account of the territories ceded to
the Entente.
Would Build House
For Presidents on
the Mount Falcon
Denver, Colo., Oct. 7.—The move
ment to establish a "summer White
House" on Mount Falcon, 15 miles
from Denver and In the Rocky
Mountains, has Deen revived by
Colorado citizens. The war inter
rupted the campaign started sev
eral years ago with the object of
providing a picturesque mountain
palace where presidents of the
United States might find refuge dur
ing the warm months.
The building, it is estimated,
would require an initial expendi
ture of $50,000 and leaders of the
campaign plan to raise $250,000 ad
ditional to complete the entire struc
ture and put the grounds in shape.
The summer home would be held
in trust by the governor of the 22
states west of the Mississippi river,
acting as a board of regents.
