"Money Making on Side" May Be
Eliminated, Is Assertion
Chicago, April 29.—'Pensions for re
tired ministers would have a tendency
to eliminate the commercialization of
the pulpit through "money making on
the side,'' according to Df. W. R. War
,ren, of Indianapolis, Ind., secretary of
the 'board of ministerial relief of" th«
Disciples of Christ, who addressed the
national convention of Conference
■Claimants of the (Methodist Eplscop*
Church to-day. Plans are 'being con
sidered by the convention to raise a
$10,000,000 fund to provide pensions |
for retired ministers, their widows and
'' Pensions would help to obtain more
and better ministers," said Dr. Warren,
"by overcoming the natural opposition
of parents, by enlisting the sons of mrn
isters who would otherwise have to go
into business to care for the parents."

Don't Stay Gray! Nobody Can Tell
Whan Ton Darken Gray, Faded Hair
With Saga Taa and Sulphur
Grandmother kept her hair beautiful
ly darkened, glossy and abundant with
f brew of Sage Tea and Sulphur. When
ever her hair fell out or took on that
dull, faded or streaked appearance, this
simple mixture waa applied with won
derful effect. By asking at any drug
store for "Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur
Compound," you will get a large bottle
of tnis old-time recipe, ready to use,
for about 50 cents. This simple mixture
can be depended upon to restore nat
ural color and beauty to the hair and, is
splendid for dandruff, dry, itchy scalp
and falling hair.
A well-known downtown druggist
says everybody usee Wyeth's Sage and
Sulphur, because it darkens so naturally
and evenly that nobody can tell it has
been applied—it's so easy to use, too.
You simply dampen a comb or soft
brush and draw it through your hair,
taking one strand at a time. Bv morn
ing the gray hair disappears; after an
other application or two, it is restored
to its natural color and looks glossy,
soft and abundant. —Adv.

Petrograd, April 29, 11.80 A. M.,
Via London, 2.35 P. M.—The Russian
occupation of Loubnia, a small Ullage
to the northwest of Uzsok Pass, was a
decided achievement in the Carpathian
campaign, for the reason that it seri
ously endangers the important railroad
line between the towns of Uzeok and
Berezna, a line which made possible the
extended Austrian operations in this re
gion and at the same time successfully
retarded the Russian advance in the di
rection of the Uzsok Pass.
During the past week, as the Rus
sian advance developed in the direction
of Uzsok Pass, the Austrians exerted
their entire strength to protect this
railroad line, affording RS it did an in
velnable means of communication be
tween the Austrian forces on the Uzsok
summit and those operating noar Orosh
and Pataka.
The seizure of Loubnia gives the Rus
sian artillery an opportunity of com
manding a part of this railroad.line and
virtually disqualifying it from further
The furious Austrian efforts to re
take this village culminated the night
of April 26 and the morning of April
27, when they reached the Russian po
sitions, but they were forced after a
hand-to-hand encounter to retire.
The authorities report that in this
region, as toll as at Lupkow and Stry,
the Austrian troops were not assisted
by the Germans, who are said to be
concentrating at Cracow and in West
ern Galicia. Ftfr reinforcements the
Austrian* had to rely upon their own
troops from Bukowina and upon men

side of the straits, and are advancing
An unofficial dispatch from Athens
states that the allies were victorious in
a battle on the west side of the penin
sula, inflicting serious losses on the
Turks and capturing one battalion.
The battle of Flanders has passed the
high point of intensity and is becom
ing less severe. An official Belgian
statement speaks merely of the activity
of artillery and aviators along the part
of the front held by Belgian forces.
Field Marshal Sir John French, the
British commander, has announced that
the German advance has been checked
To-day's ' official statements from
Paris and Berlin do not indicate that
significant changes occurred in yester
day's fighting. The French report says
Belgian and French troops made pro
gress in Flanders, while the German
announcement asserts that attacks on
the German positions on the west bank
of the Yser canal failed.-It is also said
the Germans advanced more than 104)
yards southeast of Verdun.
In the Russian campaign capture by
the Germans of a Polish village, is
claimed, as well as the occupation of a
Russian position near the Warsaw
front. This is the first indication for
several weeks of fighting of conse
quence along this line where occurred
some of the most severe engagements
of the war when the Germans were at
tempting to capture Warsaw.
Petrograd attaches importance to
the Russian capture of Loubnia north
east of Uzsok pass. Possession of this
town, it is said, will enable the Rus
sians to interrupt the operation of the
railroad on which the Austrians have
relied for moving troops along the
Beskld mountains.
It Is reported from-Rome that Italy
has reached an agreement with Great
Britain and France that, if she enters
the war, it will be contemporaneously
with a concerted offensive movement
against Germany and Austria by all
their opponents. The agreement is said
to provide also for the territory which
Italy is to acquire in event of victory,
and for a new and permanent alliance
between Italy and the Powers of the
Triple Entente.
In the Russian campaign new battles
are developing in the north, along thf
East Prussian border. Petrograd dis
patches speak of various encounters,
but make no mention of the victory
along a twelve-mile front which the
German War Office announced yester
day. Neither has it conceded the re
ported Austrian victory in Spkowina,
on the eastern end of the front, which
is said to have compelled the Russians
to fall back to the border.
A Berlin news agency announces
that the Austrian-Italian negotiations
are progressing toward a satisfactory
adjustment and that the most Important
points have been settled. Rome advices,
however, say that Italy is unyielding
and that a representative of the gov
ernment has admitted no agreement is
in sight. Austria is reported to have
stopped all ordinary traffic on railroads
along the border for the purpose of
rushing in large numbers of troops.

Summary of Wliat Must Be Done Be
fore B. J. H. Douglass Can Acquire
Land in the Susquehanna
Despite assertions to the contrary, it
was said at the Department of Internal
Affairs this morning, there had been no
protest filed by anybody connected with
the Harrisburg municipal government
against the granting of a warrant for
possession of a small newly-formed is
land in the Susquehanna river opposite
Kelker street to Benjamin J. H. Doug
lass, 1606 Green street.
Mr. Douglass made his application in
December, 1914, for this small island,
which contains 89.6 perches. The In
ternal Affairs Department referred the
application to the State Forestry Com
mission, which always has first claim
on "newly-discovered" land, and the
Commission notified the Secretary of
Internal Affairs that it does not want
the island.
The Internal Affairs Department
then advertised ttfe fact that the claim
had been made, and after three weeks'
advertising, if no caveat against grant
ing the claim is filed, and no written
prbtest made within thirty days, ap
praisers will be appointed V>y the Gov
ernor, Attorney General, Secretary of
the Commonwealth and Secretary of In
ternal Affairs.
These appraisers will place a valua
tion on the island of not less than $8
an acre, which will be reported to the
Board of Property, which has the last
say, in case a protest is filed, and, tif
none is filed, then the claimant will get
the property.
City Solicitor Seitz called a"t the In
ternal Affairs Department some time
ago in relation to tlie Douglass claim,
but filed no written protest, and, unless
such protest is filed, and it be. shown
that Douglass has no legal claim of
prior discovery, or that somebody had
not filed a claim before him, Douglass
will get the island, under the law.
