1 Dentist's Recipe For
I Pyorrhoea, Bleeding \
Gums or Loose Teeth ?
If your teeth are loose or if your
gums are receding and are sore, ten
der or Inflamed, if they bleed easily,
are spongy, llabby or colorless and
discharge pus. go to H. C. Kennedy
or Geo. A. Gorgas and get a one
ounce jar of lOpithol and gently rub
a little over the gums with your fin
ger tips each night and morning.
This is a famous dentist's prescrip
tion for such serious gum diseases as
Pyorrhoea or Uiggs Disease which
makes the teeth loosen and fall out
and usually brings prompt relief
from all the dangerous symptoms.
Loose teeth should tighten and gums
grow sound and healthy in a short
time. ' Epithol is easy and pleasant
to use, and not expensive as one
ounce will last for many weeks. Any
one suffering from Pyorrhoea or
Riggs Disease or Sore. Tender Gums
should give this remedy a trial.
Without an
Wonderful Healing of Rupture
How a New Jersey Man
Got Rid of a Severe, Ob
stinate, Right Inguinal
Hernia Without the
Slightest Trouble.
Below is a picture of Eugene M.
rullen. a well-known carpenter of
Manasquan, New Jersey. If you
could see him at his work, particu
larly when he handles heavy timber,
jumps and climbs around like a youth,
you would scarcely imagine that he
had formerly been aKicted with a
Ruptured in Right Slile
At an early age, Eu.rene Pullen was
an express driver. He handled rail
road baggage. One day after deliver
ing a heavy trunk on an upper floor
he felt a pain in the right groin. The
suffering increased and it was not
long before the young man noticed
the swelling.
The doctor told young Pullen that
he was ruptured and that he must
either wear a truss throughout life or
submit to a dinstie operation. All
surgeons know that hernia operations,
with anaesthetics, etc., are dangerous;
they may end fatally. Moreover, it
is a well established fact that many
rupture operations are not sucessful;
the bowel soon breaks through the
sewed-up opening and protrudes
worse than ever.
Afruid of Operation
Like most others. Mr. Pullen de
clined to take the risks of an opera
tion; the expense and loss of time had
to be considered, too. Hoping he
might get a little better encourage
ment, he went to another physician
who, to his sorrow, gave him even
less hope. It was pointed out to the
young man that unless the rupture
were perfectly held all the, time or
the surgeon's knife successfully used,
he might expect an increase or dou
bling in the rupture with further,
complications, or the dreaded stran
gulated hernia which kills so many
ruptured people.
Victim of Trusses
The victim bought a truss, a hard,
spring-like affair, the best he could
get. It tortured him. He tried an
other —still no relief. He was com
pelled to give up his express busi
ness. The hard tasks of ordinary
men were forbidden him. He became
an insurance agent, in which posi
tion he did not need to do bodily
For six years Mr. Pullen dragged
around, using various trusses, hard,
elastic, etc., with never any content
ment. One day his mother told him
something she had just found out. It
was a simple and easy thing for him
to do. He lost no time.
Discorded His Truss
Relief came at once; he almost for
got that he had any rupture. Aftefls.
ward came a cure—a complete healing
—And, although years have passed
and Mr. Pullen is an energetic car
penter. working on buildings, climb
ing over roofs, lifting lumber and
sUQh like, he is absolutely free from
the old hernia. Re knows he is com
pletely, lastingly cured. There was
no operation, no lost time, no trou
ble —comfort and contentment from
the very outset. He is a strong
cheerful-minded man.
Valuable Information Free
The valuable information which
Mrs. Pullen read in the newspaper
many years ago and gave to her Bon,
together with further important
facts, will be sent free to any reader
of this who writes to Eugene M. Pul
len. 787-F Mareellus avenue, Jlanus
quan, N*. J., enclosing a stamp for re
ply. Mention the kind of rupture you
have, whether on right or left side
and what you have already done in
your effort to cure it. A legion of
cases of all kinds of rupture In men
and women. including inguinal
(groin), femoral, navel, scrotal, etc..
have been reported completely healed!
Age seems to make no difference.

,Executed on Charges of Hav
ing Held Intelligence With
the Enemy
By Associated Press
Paris, Oct. 24—Pierre Lenoir, con
victed on a charge of having held
i intelligence with the enemy, was exe
cuted at Sante Prison at 7 o'clock
this morning.
Pierre Lenoir was the third per
son to be executed on charges aris
ing out of attempts made by Ger
man agents to conduct a "defeatist"
campaign in France in 1915 and
1916. The others who met death
las a result of revelations made
against them were 8010 Pasha, exe-
Icuted April 17, 191s, una 51. Duval,
who faced the firing squad July 17,
1918. Both were directors of the
Germanophite newspaper Bonnet
Paid Out Inrgr Sums
Lenoir, who as a young man had
led an idle and dissolute life, came
into public notice early in 1918 when
the arrest of Senator Humbert, own
er of the Paris Journal, was follow
ed by charges against several men
who were alleged to have acted as
agents of the Germans in buying
the newspaper from M. Humbert. It
was shown early in the investiga
tion that Lehoir had paid M. Hum
bert large sums of money whicn
lie had received from Germans, and
that Lenoir had received a commis
sion of about $200,000 for his work.
The money handled by Lenoir came
into France by the way of Switzer
land, a German agent named Schoel
ler acting for Germany in that coun
Lenoir was doomed to death on
May 8, 1919, and desperate but futile
efforts were made to gain a commu
tation/of his sentence. Lenoir was
removed to Sante Prison after what
appeared to be his last chance for
life had vanished, but on Septem
ber 19, last, when the firing squad
was in position and all preparations
for his execution had been made,
his life was spared for a time in a
most dramatic manner. His attor
ney asserted that Lenoir'could give
evidence wanted in the case of Jo
seph Caillaux, who was yesterday
brought before the high court of
the French Senate on a charge of
"conspiring to bring about a prema
ture and dishonorable peace with
Germany." Lenoir was given a
searching examination by judicial
authorities, but subsequently it was
announced that nothing he had laid
before the officials would justify a
mitigation of the sentence of death
passed upon him. An appeal to the
Court of Revision was rejected on
October 21.

Brave Band to Fare Forth Into
Wildwood's Wilds After
Winter's Fuel
Saurkraut and "hot dogs," to say
nothing of rolls and coffee! If you
can beat that menu by anything at
all, there's no use in coming to the
woodchopping at Wildwood to-mor
row afternoon. But unless the com
mittee in charge Is very much mis
taken, just the magic sound of "hot
dogs" and saurkraut snould have
half the city of Harrisburg out chop
ping wood.
And after all, think of the exer
cise. Frank Musser, who is chief
ot the chopping team of the Rotary
Club, said with confidence when in
terviewed last night that there was
no doubt of another Rotary victory
this year. He claimed that the team
of last year was so far in the van
that the others looked like his ex-
Majesty in Holland.
Wood Is Ready
The wood is ready, the axes are
sharp the food is prepared, the
trucks are ready to haul it away
all that remains is to see the brawny
sons of toil in action. And by the
way, there will be some who remem

uted so largely to the building of

president said that the Sons would

Need More Axes
The Y. M. C. A. has chosen "Doc"
Miller to lead them, and there is
no doubt but that he will far out
weigh the rest of the contestants.
The fire builders of the "Y" are con

them for the rest of the winter. And
speaking of fire burners, Ross Swope
has been reappointed Boss Brush
Burner, with full powers over all
brush in the outlying districts of
The Children's Industrial Home,
the Nursery Home, and the "Y"
building are to receive the choppings
for fire wood, and inasmuch as last
year's work resulted in sufficient
wood for the entire winter, it is al
most certain that with the evident
increased attendance this year there
will be enough for all three places.
So, Grant Forrer has the wood
and tools all ready, but there won't
be enough axes to go round; if you
have any at home bring it with you.
The gang will meet in front of the
"Y" building at 1.30, and proceed
directly to the Division street en
trance of Wildwood Park. Those
coming up later may take the car
to Division and then walk straight
across the footpath. The saurkraut
and "hot dogs" will be ready for you.
