Paris.Mysteriously, steadily, bra
"senly in defiance df a law of the
land, the Germans are reappearing In
Paris. They are living without dis
guise In the capital, still technically an
armed camp of war. In greater num

hostilities many Germans who had suc

nishing war material to the, army.
Scorn for sch traitorous swine who
would sell death-producing stuff for
tise against their own countrymen is
minimized by astonishment at the
laxity of the French* government In
permitting them such a practice.
For the last few weeks Paris city
officials* have been Investigating the
presence of so many Germans, and it
has been found that while a few have
been in their old haunts without mo
lestation from the police during the
war period the greater number have
been drifting in through the Swiss
frontier since the signing of the
*At present the hands of the police
are completely tied by the fact that
90 per' cent of the Germans who re
nutined or have been drifting back are
naturalized as Frenchmen, and the
chamber, with characteristic procras
tination, keeps putting off passage of
the proper measures to take this nat
uralization from the Germans and per
mit the police to oust them.
An illuminating article was pub
lished in La Liberte the other eve
ning signed by H. Galli.
"One wonders at finding in the mWst
tf the entrenched camp of Paris so
many enemy subjects," be says. "There
has never been at any time so many
foreigners In Paris. I do not mean vis
itors hare temporarily, but people
stopping permanently, doing business,
exploiting enterprises and, all too often
taking the jobs of mobilized French
men. Nothing has been done to keep
these undesirable citizens out,
"In December, 1914, Mr. Laurent,
who was then prefect of police, stated
that 150,000 aliens were settled in the
capital. Today, according to the of
ficial figures, there are 171,000. The
great majority stay here without au
thorization. The special commission
named to investigate foreigners and
issue permits for residence has- been
unable to pass upon more than 38,000
cases. Three thousand permissions
were granted and the same number of
refusals were made.
Stayed in Spite of All.
"Those who did not get the propel
permits succeeded in staying anyway,
despite all measures taken to put them
out of the country. This they accom
plished by disappearing for a short
time and returning to the same ad
dress, or changing their residence and
failing to register. About one hun
dred who practiced these deceptions
were caught and sent to concentration
camps and another hundred were es
corted to the frontiers.
"The most undesirable often avoided
detection and Investigation What risk
did they run? None at all."
These figures on the number of for
eigners living in Paris during the war
and the number of them officially ap
proved will be interesting for Ameri
cans who have been through the or
deal of getting matriculation papers,
ipermits to live^ temporarily, permits
'to live permanently, certificates of
domicile and other little scraps of pa
per. It strikes me that the French
police were a bit overzealous in cata

scrupulous in appearing before th|

Millions are now Buffering from the
after effects of the deadly "fin," a

If these people could only realize
that the return to health and strength

ing the acidity and toxic poisons from
the entire digestive tract, making it
act naturally, so that the body will

be saved to humanity.
Everyone knows that the disease it
self, and the strong medicines that
have been taken, upset the stomach,
leave it hot and feverish, the mouth
dry, the tongue coated, a nasty taste,
and no desire to eat. This is a poor
foundation to build new strength on.

over this country are using EATONIC

teous meal, and asked, "You are really
willing to work for us?" "Yes." "And
you won't object to going/behind the
