The Safety of Americans
So far Ambassador Morgenthau's re
ports concerning the safatv of Ameri
cans have been reassuring. An under
current of uneasiness was created, how
ever. early this month when the Turk
ish commande.' at Beirut addressed a
note to the American Consul General,
which he intended for the information
OJ. the French and British governments,
declaring that for every Mussulman
killed in a bombardment of any un
fortified port three British or French
subjects would be put to death, and
added that he could not take the re
sponsibility for any uprising against
( hiistians which might follow such an
It was pointed out at the time that
bombardment of any open and unforti
fied towns was unlikely, as it is pro
hibited by The Hague convention,
i hose Turkish officials who remain at
the embassy here were confident that
jf the Tennessee had been tired upon
it was the act of some local official,
which would quickly be taken u.p by
Constantinople government. Fur
ther tin n calling for inquiries from
other American officials in the vicinity,
it appeared that Washington was await
ing further reports from the Tennessee
herself before proceeding. It became
known also that England and France
were asking their commanders in the
Mediterranean for information of the
Theory of Washington Officials
The theory of the officials here is
that Captain Decker had been ashore
at Smyrna to pay his respects to Consul
General Horton and that the Consul,
who had returned the visit, was being
taken ga<-k to Smyrna when the launch
was tired upon. Ft was pointed out
that in making a visit to Smvrna the
ordinary procedure for the Tennessee
to take would be to anchor outside the
harbor and send a lunch ashore. An
other view is that the tiring may not
have been inteuded as an unfriendly
act, but merely as a warning that, the
port was closed. This is said to be a
usual form of notifying a foreign ves
sel that a port is closed when other
notification has not been made. Vour
lah is about ten miles from Smvrna.
The cruiser North Carolina is at Beirut,
on the coast of Asia Minor, about 500
miles awav.
To Make Complete Investigation •
Secretary Daniels immediately noti- j
tied Acting Secretary Lansing of the 1
firing and that official immediately
callej upon Ambassador Morgenthau at
Constantinople to make a complete in
vestigation. Communication, however,
between Constantinople and the United
States is very slow. The latest message
from Mr. Morgenthau, received yester
day, was dated November 12. It
made no mention of any disturbances.
As Captain Decker's report mentioned
the fact that anxiotv had been felt for
the safety of the American consulate
at Smyrna, the opinion was expressed
in some quarters t>hat the launch might
have beeu taking a guard from the
Tennessee to protect the consulate and
such Americans and other foreigners
w*ho would naturally seek asylum in
that quarter.

Berlin, Via The Hague and London,
Nov. 18. 10.25 A. M. —An official war
bulletin given ofit in Berlin to-day sets
forth that the operations on the east
ern front arn progressing favorably.
The Germans apparently are using their
victory at Wloclawek to the greatest
advantage. The Russian armies de
feated near Lipno yesterday arc prob
ably in the vicinity of Plock, and the
forces defeated near Wloclawek are
now at Kutno and Lesehytea.
For the continuation of operations,
the bulletin goes on to say. it will be
of the greatest importance for the Ger
man troops from the region of Solday
to make further progress against the
right w'ng of the main Russian army.
If the Russains intend to retire behind
the Vistula such a retreat, considering
the extremely bad conditions of the
roads, would bo most difficult, conse
quently the Russians probably will pre
fer to make a definite stand when the
German and Austrian forces attack.
The papers of Berlin declare again
to-day that the fall of Belgrade, Serv
ia, is imminent.
According to a statement given out
in Venna, the fortress of Przemysl, now
being besieged by the Russians, is pro
visioned for twelve months.

Governor Tener was scheduled to be
present proved the magnet. Governor
Tener was greeted with applause as ho

Commissioner Jackson.
The Governor made a felicitous
speech in which lie referred to the work
that is being done in Pennsylvania
through the Bureau of Labor and In
dustry in the direction of ameliorating
the working conditions for artisans, and
especially that part of it that relates
to the welfare and safety of those who
toil in whatever occupation. The Gov
ernor referred to the work along tlie?c
lines that had been taken up by other
countries and states and said it is a
great pleasure to know that Pennsyl
vania is not behind in th e good work.
The Governor expressed much satis
faction at the large attendance and
said it augured much good for the fu
ture, but be told the conference that
much remains to be done for the good
of all. He complimented those present
for their disinterestedness in coming
here to talk matters over with a view
that the welfare and the efficiency of
the people might be advanced, ' and
closed by expressing the hope that their
stay in Harrisburg might be in the
highest degree beneficial.
At the close of the Governor's re
marks, F. Herbert Snow, president of
the Engineer's Society of Pennsylva
nia, presented the Governor with the
certificate of membership in the Asso
ciation, and in doing go. said:

End Itching Scalp and Stop Falling
Hair—At Once
There is one sure wa.v that never i
fails to remove dandruff completely and
that is to dissolve it. This destroys it j
entirely. To do this, just get about four j
ouaces of plain, ordinary liquid arvon; j
apply it at night when retiring; use |
enough to inoistefi the scalp and rub it!
in gently with the fiinger tips.
By morning most, if not all, of your |
dandruff will be gone, and three or four,
more applications wil completely dis
solve ami entirely destroy every single i
sign and trace of it no matter how much >
dandruff you' may have.
You will find, too, that all itching
and digging of the scalp will stop in
stantly, and your hair will bo fluffy,
lustrous, glossy, silky and soft and look
and feel a hundred times better.
If you want to keep your hair look
ing rich, do by all means get rid of
dandruff for nothing destroys the hair
so quickly. Tt not only starves the hair
and makes it fall out, but it makes it
stringy, straggly, dull, dry, brittle and
lifeless, and everybody notices it. Yrfu
can get liquid arvon at any drug store.
It is inexpensive, and four ounces is all
you will need. This simple remedy hus
never been known to fail. Adv.

Well Known Politician Nearly Bald
Now Has New Growth of Hair
Tells How He Did It
A western politician, well known on
account of his baldness and his ready
wit, surprised his friends by appearing
with a new growth of hair. Many of
his friends did not know him, and
others thought he had a wig. On be
ing asked how he did it, he made the
following statement: "I attribute the
growth of my hair to the following
simple recipe which any lady or gen
tleman can mix at home. To a half
pint of water add 1 or.. of Bay Rum, a
small box of Barbo Compound and
oz. v of Glycerine. Apply to the
two or three times a week with tl)«
finger tips. It not only promotes the
growth of the hair, but removes dap
liruff, scalp lutmors and prevents the
hair from falling out. It darkens
streaked, faded, gray hair and makes
the hair soft and glossy. Those ingrodi
ents caii be purchased at any drug store
at very little cost and mixed at home."
