TO IS Mill FOR MCE Between G,000,000 and 7,000,000 Bel gians have little or nothing to call "home." They are a peopfe almost without, a country. Foodstuffs, forage, horses, cattle and automobiles not com mandeered by the Belgian army when the war broke out have been seized by the Germans. Practically every acre la now swept of everything vnluable. It Is estimated that there are now 200,000 Belgian refugees in England and 800,000 In Holland. The lowest estimate made here places the number of Belgian homes destroyed or so bad ly damaged as to be uninhabitable at 1,000,000. Mallnes, Louvain, Liege, Namur, Charlerol. Mons, Dinant and a score of smaller places have been so shattered by the artillery fire of the op posing armies that less than half of the normal population is decently shel tered. A report from Limbourg says that the supplies for the bread line have been exhausted, and the feeding can be resumed only when American food arrives. No Beef, Milk or Ch««se. The seizure of cattle for the armies has left the country without beef, milk and cheese. The supply of grain or dinarily Imported from the United States and Canada has been cut off. At Liege, the Pittsburgh of Belgium, the steel Industry has been brought to a standstill. At Antwerp, the New York of the Belgians, all shipping has •topped. Hundreds of big steamers lie Idle at the docks along the Scheldt. Thousands of freight trucks are rust ing beside the canals. Brussels, the deserted capital, has been spared destruction, but its indus tries are shut down. Lace workers are being fed at soup kitchens. The stores have no food to sell, and the public bus no money to buy If opportunity offered. Members of noble families have dis charged their servante and joined the tread line. Only One In Five Work·. it Is estimated in lyindon that one flfth of the Belgians remaining iu the country have employment of some sort. These include farm owners and lessees. The beet crop has been ruined by the armies, and the beet sugar factories fire closed. There are no horses or other equipment for harvesting or trains to move the small amount of beets that have survived the devasta tion of war, and few ablebodied men to assist the brave women who are en deavoring to ward off starvation by gathering what little remains of the erops in the field. Antwerp'» diamond cutters are all in the army. Matines' tapestry factories •re In enins. Many cotton mills are in jpMSSe, and those that still stand are Ckteed. All universities and schools fctve been abandoned. Nearly all the physicians are at, the front serving in the hospitals. There are no malls or telegraphic „ Mrvlce to Dutch territory. The dis heartened Belgians are unable to com municate with their relatives, whether they are refugees in Ilolland or soldiers on the battle line. Their isolation Is almost complete. Children the Worst Sufferers. "Amid all the horrors of this war there is none that compares with the Buffering of little children." This is the opinion expressed by two Ited Cross nurses, Mrs. Pattou Bethune, the wife of an English officer, and Dr. Ethel Ormlston, a New Zea lander, who have Just returned to London after varied experiences in Flanders and along the Dutch frontier. They both worked close to the tiring line and ministered to the British, French, Belgiau and German wouuded. "At Bluis," said Mrs. Bethune. "just over the Dutch frontier, we saw hun dreds èf little innocents of ages vary ing from one month to ten years, who Were suffering from scarcity of both food and clothing. One poor little kid between two and three months old had a strip of linen for the sole covering of his poor little body, which was like an Icicle. The Dutch were doing every thing possible, but the relief organiza tion there, as everywhere, seemed to tally Inadequate. "In Flanders we saw many heart breaking cases of childish suffering. There were boys and girls from seven to ten years of age who were trudging •long with their mothers, carrying bun dles of their poor household effects, fleeing from they knew not what ter ror·. The suffering we witnessed that curdled the blood in our veins was thai of the little children." Sword· Art Out of Dat·. G«rm»η officers nre throwing sway their swords.

Siberia's unique population should possess considerable Interest for the eugenlsts, gays the New York Medical Journal. From 165S to 1900 from 2,000 to 20,000 nussians were exiled annually to Siberia, mainly for voicing Ideas and opinions which favored democracy nnd other modern theories. In other words, the inhabitants of the territory seem always to have been men and women or original habits of thought, of Aen tal qualifications which would have made them prominent and distinguish ed under a form of government more like our own. As we understand it, these exiles have lived an outdoor life, rigorons. perhaps, but of the most healthful kind. Consequently we find in Siberia a most unusual combination of intellectual equipment of high quality with phys ical surroundings adapted to furnish bodily vigor and excellent health, a union produced by accident of the ex act kind that eugenlsts are striving to effect by design. The colonization of Siberia by the method above referred to practically ceased fourteen years ago. There should be now, even in the absence of first rate schools, a population with most exceptional gifts, veritable supermen if the theories of the eugenlsts are sound ly based. BEGGAR SCORNS PENNIES. Southern Negro Will Accept No Alms Lee» Than a Nicke.l. Jackson, Miss., lias an aristocratic negro beggar who scorns pennies and declines to accept anything in the coin line that is less than a five cent piece. Even the war In Europe and the tight ness of money in America have not changed his attitude. Thinking to do the old negro, who sits next the corner of East Capitol and Congress streets, a favor, the other day a citizen picked up fl-om the sidewalk three pennies that he thought the negro had carelessly dropped. What was the surprise of the kind hearted citizen to learn from the beg gar that little things like pennies he threw away. "Fellow that drops into my cup Just like a penny Is a cheap skate," remarked the seeker of alms ACORNS A HEADACHE CURE. Weman, Alene, Wander· In Wood· For Six Week· Wltheut Other FootL Wait Falmouth.

Sulphur, eaya a renowned dermatol· ©gist, just common bold-eujphiir made into 6 thick crcam will soothe and heal the akin when irritated and broken out with Eczema or any form of eruption. The moment it is applied all itching ceases and after two or thro© applica tions the Eczema disappears, leaving the skin clear and smooth. He tells Eczema sufferers to get from any good pharmacy an ounce of bold sulphur and apply it to the irritated parts the same as you would any cold cream. For many years common bold-sulphur has occupied a secure position in the practice of dermatology and cutaneous affections by reason of its parasite-de stroying property. It is not only para sinoidal, but also antipruritic, anti septic and remarkably healing in all irritable and inflammatory conditions of the skin. While not always effecting a permanent cure it never fails to in stantly subdue the angry itching and irritation and heal the Eczema right j up and it is often years later before j any eruption again appears on the skin.
