progress in many nations toward

Asserts New Discovery
Brings Blessed Relief to Rose
and Hay Fever Sufferers
Can Make It Yourself At Home At Trifling Expense
In spite of all the doubters and
scoffers, a man In Kentucky, who
changed his annoying and distress
ing hay fever into less than a mild
cold, claims most emphatically that
if taken in time hay fever can be
conquered or at least made so harm
less that it is not even bothersome.
He gave his discovery to scores of
other sufferers with the most re
murkable results and has recently
been prevailed upon to dispense it
through pharmacists to all hay
fever sufferers who still have faith
that nature has provided an effective
remedy for this common yet miser
able disease.

W. H. Taft Eulogizes
Americanism of T. R.
New Haven, Conn., Oct. 27. ln
an address that may become his
torical, William Howard Taft deliv
ered a principal eulogy on the Roose
velt Memorial celebration last night
in the Doolsey Hall Auditorium.
Hundreds stood and many were
turned away. Major Hiram Bing
ham, of Yale University, presided-
Mr. Taft evoked repeated applause
when he eulogized the Americanism
of Roosevelt and asserted this coun
try never needed Roosevelt's cou
rageous spirit more than at present.
His accomplishments and his dy

plauded as sounding the keynote in
Roosevelt character.
And best of all this remedy costs
almost nothing. Get a one ounce

Then gargle as directed and twice

can't do the work; but oftentimes
simple natural remedies are tho best

birds and turned them loose to breed.
In some sections vyhere turkeys had
been almost extinct this plan has
resulted in notable increases. Flocks
of as high as 25 birds have been re
ported from some counties to the
Commission ofjlces. The wild turkey

Governor Assails
Bolshevik Ideas
In a vigorous speech at Chester
on Saturday night Governor William
C. Sproul declared that the great
labor and social unrest in America
was being caused by 5 per cent of
the population, representing foreign
countries. The Governor scored
Bolshevikism and I. W. W.'sm in the
most bitterest terms, when the Chief
Executive delivered the keynote ad
dress at the uriveiling of a bronze
tablet at the I. O. O. F. Temple.
The ceremonies were in honor of sol
diers who paid the supreme sacrifice
in the World War conflict and were
niembers of Upland Lodge of Ches
ter. More than 500 persons heard
Governor Sproul deliver his message
against un-Americans.
"We haven't filled our duty to our
country," said Governor Sproul, "for
it's up to us Americans to finish the
job we started when the United
States plunged into the war arena
that memorable April day in 1917."
Continuing he said:
"There are to-day in America 95
per cent Americans. The other 5
per cent are trouble-makers and
their agitation is the cause for the
unrest in the industrial fields. We
cannot tolerate the doings of these
anarchists and red flag wavers. 80l-
