To Cure Catarrhal
Deafness and
Head Noises
Persons suffering from catarrhal
deafness and head noises will be glad
to know that this distressing affliction
can be treated at home by an internal i
medicine that lias been said in many j
instances to have effected a complete |
cure after all else had failed. Sufferers j
who could scarcely hear a watch tick I
toll how they have had their hearing
restored to such an extent that the tick
of a watch was plainly audible seven
or eight inches away from either ear.
Therefore, If you know someone who
is troubled with head noises or catarrh,
or catarrhal deafness, cut out this for
mula and hand to them and you will
perhaps have been the means of saving
some poor sufferer from total deafness.
The prescription can be prepared at
home and is made as follows:
■Secure from W. H. Kennedy or any
other good druggist in Harrisburg. 1
oz. Parmint (Double Strength*, about
75c worth. Take this home, and add to
it pint of hot water and 4 oz. »f
granulated sugar: stir until dissolved.
Take one tablespoonful four times a
day.
The first dose should begin to relieve
the distressing head noises, headache,
dullness, cloudy thinking, etc., while
the hearing rapidly returns as the sys
•>pm is invigorated by the tonic action
of the treatment. Loss of smell and
mucus dropping In the back of the
throat are other symptoms that show
the presc-nce of catarrhal poison, and
which are quickly overcome by this ef
ficacious treatment. Nearly ninety per
cent, of all ear troubles are said to be
directly caused by catarr... therefore,
there must be many people whose
hearing can be restored by this simple
home treatment. Every person who is
troubled with head noises, catarrhal
deafness, or catarrh in any form, should
give this prescription a trial.—Adver
tisement.

Dr. I. H. Scbcnck Sc. Son, Philadelphia
The Use of Bisurated
Magnesia for
Stomach Troubles
In these days of almost universal in
digestion, dyspepsia and other stomach
trouble, the recent announcement by a
great specialist that pure bisurated
magnesia is an almost infallible remedy
for nearly all forms of stomach
trouble, will come as a welcome sur
prise to all sufferers. A teaspoonful in
a little water Immediately after eating,
or whenever pain is felt, neutralizes
the excess acid, and instantly stops the
fermentation and pain. Those who use
bisurated magnesia regularly for a
week or two usually find that the
trouble has entirely disappeared, and
normal digestion is completely re
stored.—Advertisement.
Superfluous Hair Killed
Without Electricity
Mine. < hamlnade's Advice
"At last I can recommend a new and
simple prescription that never fails to
remove all signs of superfluous hair,
completely and painlessly and without
injury," says Mme. Chaminade in Mi
lady's Boudoir. It Is called "Mrs. Os
good's Wonder" after a well-known so
ciety woman who found it entirely
, - radicated her own distressing growth
of hair on face and arms. She has never
suffered a return of it since. In fact. It
Is so successful that I caution my read
ers not to apply It to hair that they do
not wish totally destroyed.
"Mrs. Osgood's Wonder" is quite in
expensive. You can obtain it from
Kennedy's Drug Store or any up-to*
ilate druggist. Signed Money-Back

Daniels Expected to Ask
For Naval Reserve Force
Special to The Telegraph
Washington, D. C„ Nov. 17. Secre
tary of the Navy Daniels is expected to
recommend In his annual report the or
ganization of a national naval reserve
of 50.000 men, to be drawn upon should
an emergency arise. Assistant Secre
tary Roosevelt recently called atten
tion to the fact that the navy is short
IS.OOO in enlisted men. This has re
sulted. officials of the Navy Depart
ment assert, in many vessels being un
dermanned.
Kxcept in case of war, the naval re
serve will not affect the personnel of I
the navy. If Congress can be persuao
ed to provide the necessary appropr:
tion to maintain the naval reserve, :
Navy Department believes that ma;,
former enlisted men will Join this o.
ganization, while civilians at all fami
liar with ships and the sea will be
eligible to become members. When or
ganized the national naval reserve will
consist of noncommissioned officers,
seamen und others capable of perform
ing all manner of duties on board ship,
from cook to aviator.
A complete card index system will be
maintained to keep track of each mem
ber. The total cost of organizing and
maintaining the reserve, it is estimated,
will not be more than $75,000 a year.
Each member will receive a nominal
salary of SI a year in peace time, and
an emblem of some kind will be dis
tributed for members to wear if they so
desire.
A BOOK THAT REVEALS
THE CAVSES OF THE WAR
"The Story of Euro|>e" Explains the
Century of Quarrels Lending to
the rresent Conflict
The unique value of "The Story of
Europe," which we are distributing to
our readers, consists in the fact that it
lays bare the deep-rooted causes of the
most stupendous conflict In the history
of man. It shows clearly how Europe
has become a camp of hostile powers,
explains the real facts about the Triple
Alliance and Triple Entente, and tells
how and why they were formed. It de
scribed the hidden, as well as the appar
ent, forces that have been at work for
generations looking toward this great
war. It portrays the issue of Fan-
Slavism versus Pan-Germanism that
has had much to do with precipi
tating war at the present time, and
tells graphically of the giant struggle
between Great Britain and Germany for
commercial supremacy and its influence
In the conflict. It explains the colonial
policy and development of the great
Powers, all of which have rich colonial
possessions except Germany. It draws
a true picture of the greed and jealousy
that have kept nations constantly
ready to Jump at one another's throats.
Never has the indictment of Europe
been so fully and fairly drawn as in
this great book, which enables you to
understand why the nations of Europe
are now at war.

great book may cost you your oppor
tunity. Cut out the coupon printed on

COMING HERE IX TEX DAYS
Special to The Telegraph
Philadelphia, Nov. 17. More than
$500,000 worth of dyestuffs, or enough
to supply the needs of Philadelphia's
consumers for two months, according
to Samuel W. Wood, manager of the I
Cassella Color Company, with offices
at 126 South Front street, will reach
this city from Germany In about ten
days.
A consignment of dyes for this city
was on board the steamer Mantanzas,
which arrived at New York from Rot
terdam late Saturday night. The main
shipment, however, has been loaded on
another steamer, the Sun. She was
chartered at Rotterdam when it was
found that the Mantanzas, which brought
a miscellaneous cargo, was stowed to
her capacity, and sailed last Friday.
The cargoes represent the first large
consignments of colors to be sent to the
United States from Germany since the
war began. Tliey were secured by a
special committee of importers who ob
tained the co-operation of the Depart
ment of State and the German authori
ties The colors were sent out of Ger
many, via the Rhine, to Rotterdam. In
dications are that henceforth fair-sized
shipments of dyestuffs will reach this
country from Germany every month.

HE GITH
' TO UN FORCES
Soldiers Believed Order For Gen
eral Retreat at Dixmade
Had Been Given
' Paris, Nov. 17, 7 A. M.—The Ger
mans, In the tyilnlon of officers at the
front, are beginning to show signs of
'the terrific strain they have under
HARRISBURG TELEGRAPH
gone for a month past In Flanders and
these officers expect that General Jof
fre's plan of holding the line and per
mitting the German host to wear Itself
out In vain but costly assaults will soon
bear fruit.
A staff officer, writing from the bat
tle line, even goes so far as to pre
dict that within another month the
allies will be In a position to drive the
enemy from French soli. The writer,
however, admits that he Is by nature
nn optimist.
Some details of the taking of Dix
mude, which the Germans still hold,
but which thus far has brought them
no advantage have reached here. The
capture of the town it appears was
due to a mistake on the part of a
French detachment.
When the fightlnir started the Bel-
glans were entrenched north of the
city, protecting the Keyen road. To
their right, turned toward the west In
the direction of Essen were the Sene
galese riflemen. To the south the
French bluejackets occupied the most
exposed position on the Clerken road.
The enemy opened a terrific bombard
ment at 5 a. m. on Tuesday last during
which the admiral who was In com
mand of the sailors and who wats
making a reconnalsance. Just missed
being hit by the fragment of a shell.
Waited in Trenches
The men watted patiently In the
trenches. Toward 1 p. m. the can
nonading slackened and the dense
columns of German infantry opened
fire on the trenches. One column
threatened to turn the Belgians who
NOVEMBER 17, 1914.
overpowered by numbers retired on
the outskirts of the city. They were
followed by the Senegalese who
thought that an order for a general
retreat had been given. This move
ment uncovered the bluejackets, who
had, however, continued to hold their
ground.
While part of the enemy advanced
on Dlxmude by the Essen and Keyen
roads left open to them, the rest came
at double quick for the sailors. Faced
by the Prussian guard they were in
danger of being surrounded. Un
daunted, however, they dashed with
the bayonet upon the Germans, but
were overwhelmed by numbers and
beaten back to the trenches. Asked to
surrender they replied In the words
credited to General Cambronne at Wa
terloo when in similar circumstances
he said:
"The guard dies;but never surren
ders." C.
For several hours they held oft the
Germans who were four times as nu
merous, charging their ranks every
time they came too near.
Towards evening they were obliged
to retire since their only means of re
treat, the bridge connecting the cltv*
with the country was about destroyed.
They crossed the bridge under an
avalanche of bullets with such mag
nificent heroism that the Prussian
officers afterward greatly expressed
their admiration.
The fighting was resumed with ter
rific violence in the streets, the blua
jackets, defending each heap of rub-,
bish that had been a house, but finally
retreated across the
