2 ' / UNCLE HARRY DESCRIBES LIFE IN THE WAR COUNTRIES "You've told us H lot about the war and the soldiers and the submarines and torpedoes, Uncle Harrv, but how about the people who live in England. Germany, France and the other war- Ting countries, but who are not taking part in the battles; what are they do ing and how are they living!" asked Jiinmv. ''That is an interesting subject," paid Undo Harry. "I'm glad you opoke about it, .limmy. There isn't very much in the newspapers these days about the 'stay-at-homes,' be cause the news of actual war takes so much space: but 1 have read con siderable on this subject and I'll be glad to tell you all that I can about it. This is important too. because life in the warring countries—l mean life in those cities and districts not ■touched by the lighting, has undergone many changes since last August." "All the men have gone to war, haven't they!" asked Joe. "Most of them have," explained Uncle Harry, "particularly the men between the ages of 21 and 45—the very men who in times of peace do nearly all the useful work and provide •the food and clothing and other things that the people need." "Do you mean the farmers and the carpenters ami the street car conduc tors?" asked Jimmy. "Yes, all these men and many more In other lines of work," said Uncle Harry. "Of course, boys, all the men 'between 21 anil 45 years, have not jsone to war, and there are many older men whe are at home, working. But business of all kinds has been badly Mndicapped, with the exception of the 4'actories that manufacture ammunition i for the soldiers and other things needed in the fighting. These places are run ning day and night and the workmen are working harder than they ever worked in times of peace." "Then how are the children and women and the men who have not gone to war, getting along; how are they getting food to eat and clothing to wear?" asked Joe. "Well, they are not getting along very well and they are not very hap py," said Uncle Harry. "Old men and hoys are doing work that they are not strong enough to do, and women arc compelled to leave their homes every day and do the same work that their iiusbands and brothers and fathers did HARRISBURC WOMAN FINDS QUICK RELIEF Mary Wheeler Gains in Weight After Taking Wonderful Remedy Mary Wheeler, of "(Hi Green street, Htirrisrinrg, Pa., for a long time was a \ ic.tim of stomach disorders. .She tried ninny treatments and found noth ing that could help her.

A number e of Camps of the Patriotic, Order Sons li of America, h'jve accepted invitations t to be present aud it is expected that i before the war. Only the other day, a woman, who had just returned from Paris, told me that in that city she rode on a trolley car that had a woman conductor and a woman ' motorman!' The 'motorman' had two little children —too small to leave at home, and as sho luad no relatives in Paris who could care for them she had 1 them on the trol ley car with her; they sat on a box on the'platform beside their mother. "In all the countries women are do ing men's work. They are plowing and doing other kinds of farm work. The soldiers must have food; the people who work in the ammunition factories must have food, and the mothers are not go ing to let their little children starve or starve themselves. Somebody must raise the crops and take care of the cows and pigs, and the women have to do it." "Haven't some of the countries run short of food f'' asked Jimmy. "Yes they have, and there is suffer ing and want in every country in Eu rope that is taking part in this war," added Uncle Harry. "And wherever conditions have become very serious and food very scarce the Governments have taken charge of the supply and' are seeing that it is evenly divided amongst all the people—rich anil poor alike. The Governments have discov ered that the business of feeding the soldiers and the people and supplying them with their other needs, is m»rc important than the business of making money. Consequently the Governments have taken charge of many factories, and seized meat, bread and other food supplies. This plan not only insures every one getting at least a little to eat but prevents a few people, with i plenty of money, from buying up every-: thing and keeping the food for their own use. Some people in Kngland tried | this as soon as the war started but the Government quickly stopped them." "You mean that everything is up side down and all mixed up in the countries that are taking part in the I war?" asked Joe. "That'B exactly what I mean," said Uncle Harry. "And I want both you boys to understand that the people who do not go to war suffer very often, just as much as the soldiers who are | wounded and sick and who have to j stand for hours, and even sleep, some- | times, in muddy trenches."—Copyright! 1915 bv The M-C Syndicate.

It is especially the food to make a weak stomach strong and create an ap petite for dinner. "I am 57 years old," writes a Tenn. | grandmother, "and have had a weak ;! stomach from childhood. By great care j as to my diet 1 enjoyed a reasonable ; degree of health, but never found any ! j thing to equal Grape-Nut# as a standby. "When I have no appetite for break ' j fast and just eat to keep up my ■itrength, 1 take 4 teaspoonfuls of Grnpe- Nuts with good rich milk, and when j dinner comes I am hungry. While if T , go without any breakfast I never feel I like eating dinner. Grape-Nuts for j breakfast seems to make a healthy ap i petite for dinner. "My little grandson was sick with | stomach trouble during the past aum | mer, and finally we put him on Grape j Nuts. Now he is growing plump and well. When asked if he wants his nurse |or Grape-Nuts, he brightens up and : .points to the cupboard. He was no trou- I file to wean at all —thanks to Grape- Nuts." Name given by Postum.

AMUSEMENTS Athletes at Colonial The Seven Bracks, featured on this bill at the Colonial theatre, are a group of acrobats so wonderfully trained that the audience sits in utter surprise throughout their performance. The Bracks have the distinction of originat ing all of their own material. In this way they keep their act aloof from the customary routine of feats attempt ed by the average acrobatic act. They do some wonderful tumbling and pyra mid building. Prince and Deary are a man and woman in a singing and talk ing act that belongs to the highest grade of vaudeville. "Between Trains" is the name of a comedy sketch that tells a pleasing story, and is pre sented in excellent style. Elsie White is a pleasing girl with good and pleasing repertoire of songs. Adv.* At Paxtang Park Manager Davis opened his summer vaudeville season at the I'axtang Park theatre last evening with a program that served to raise considerable en thusiasm in a fair-sized audience, in spite of the fact that the weather was a little too cool for open air theatricals. Brindamour amused as well as mys tified his audience with marvelous es capes from manacles and knotted ropes tied by volunteer experts from the audi ence. Brindamour's act, although not new to local theatre patrons, always makes an interesting entertainment. Caffnev and Dale pleased the audience with comedy songs and smart dialogue. The Gutzman Trio presented a most re markable head and hand balancing stunt that was made still more difficult than the average acrobatic act of this kind from the fact that the performers balance themselves on large bronze howls during the whole of their per formance. The Gutzman Trio presented a decid ed novelty in acrobatics. Jordan, the juggling phiend, and Fitzsimm'ons and Cameron complete a most fascinating vaudeville entertainment. Adv.* At the Be?ent Powerful story enthrallingly un folded in "The Clemenceau <sase," most powerful of Dumas' works will show at the Regent this afternoon ami evening only. No more powerful ser mon was ever preached than the Clem eoceau Case. No more vivid, pulsating drama was ever written than "Tho Clemenceau Case," as picturized to show at the Regent, and starring The da Bara, "The Vampire Woman," has ever been beheld upon the screen. These statements are made without re servation. Like a mighty river the story of the drama rushes strong and swift to its cataclysmic climax.

'TURKS SINK FIFTH BRITISH BATTLESHIP IN THE STRAITS London, May 28.— I The first day of Arthur J. Balfour's administration of the Admiralty was marked by another j heavy British loss in the Dardanelles. ' The Admiralty announced the torpedo- i ing and sinking of the battleship Ma-j jistic in the straits. The statement' follows: ''An enemy submarine torpedoed and sank H. M. S. Majestic, Captain ! II- 12. 0. Talbot, yesterday morning j while it was supporting the army on the | Gallipoli peninsula. Nearly all the offi cers and men were saved." A wireless message from Herlin says j that the Majestic was sunk off Sedd-el- i Bahr. The Majestic was a battleship of [ 14,900 tons' displacement and normally I carried a crew of 757 men. She was j built in 1895, being one of the old j pre-dreadnought class and was the old battleship in the active list of the Brit ish navy. Her length at the water line was 399 feet and her beam 75 feet. Her length over all was 413 feet. (She was armed with 4 12-inch guns, 12 6-inch, 16 12-pounders and 12 3-poundcrs, > besides 2 maxims and 2 12-poundert I boatguns. She also had 4 18-inch tor-N j pedo tubes submerged and one above ! water. She was covered with heavy | IHarvey armor. Her speed limit was 11> '/i knots. She was laid down at Portsmouth in February, 1894, and completed in January of the following year. She was one of a class of nine | (ships which included the Magnificent, Hannibal, Prince George, Victorious, I Jupiter, Mars, Caesar and Illustrious. The sinking of the Majestic follows ! closely the destroying of the British j battleship Triumph on Wednesday, and | is the fifth British battleship sunk in | ! the Dardanelles by torpedo or mine j since March 19, when the Irresistible and Ocean were sunk by mines. The Goliath were torpedoed on May 13 and | 500 of the crew reported lost. The j French battleship Bouvot was sunk by i a mine, with 557 of her crew, on March i ,19.
