"Pape's Diapepsin" ends all stom
ach distress in five
You don't want a slow remedy when
your stomach is had—or an uncertain
one—or a harmful one —your stomach
is too valuable; you mustn't injure it
with drastic drugs.
Pape's Diapepsin is noted for its
speed in giving relief: its harmless
ness: its certain unfailing action in
regulating sick. sour, gassy stomachs.
Its millions of cures In indigestion,
dyspepsia, gastritis and other stomach
trouble has made it famous the world
Keep this perfect stomach doctor in
your home—keep it handy—get a
large fifty-cent case from any drug
store and then if anyone should eat
something which doesn't agree with
, them: if what they eat lays like lead,
ferments and sours and forms gas:
causes headache, dizziness and nau
sea: eructations of acid and undi
gested food—remember as soon as
Pape's Diapepsin comes in contact
with the stomach all such distress
vanishes. Its promptness, certainty
and ease in overcoming the worst
stomach disorders is a revelation to
those Vho try it.—Advertisement.

Rub backache away with small
trial bottle of old
"St. Jacob's Oil"
Back hurt you? Can't straighten
up without feeling sudden pains, sharp
aches and twinges? Xow listen:
That's lumbago, sciatica or maybe
from a strain, and you'll get relief the
moment you rub your back with
soothing, penetrating "St Jacobs Oil."
Nothing else takes out soreness, lame
ness and stiffness so quickly. You
simply rub it on your back and out
comes the pain. It is harmless and
doesn't burn the skin.
Limber up! Don't suffer! Get a
small trial bottle of old. honest "St.
Jacobs Oil" from any drug store, and
after using it just once, you'll forget
that you ever had backache, lumbago
or sciatica, because your back will
never hurt or cause any more misery.
It never disappoints and has been rec
ommended for 60 years.—Advertise

Dr. Henry W. Stough, evangelist, and
i his party, who closed a seven-week
vangelistic campaign in Altoona yes
terday. were given J4.651.
I Approximately 6.000 persons hit the
trail during the campaign and the total
attendance was 430.000. Dr. Stough said
: the Altoona campaign was the greatest
of his career. On the closing dav of
the Harrisburg campaign more than
$3,000 was raised. The total number of
trailhitters were about 7.000.
With an attendance of 980 at the
Stevens Memorial Methodist Episcopal
Sunday School yesterday all previous
records of attendance at this school
were broken. Some idea of the growth
of this school is shown by the fact
that the average attendance for the
year 1913 was 499 and for the year
1914 601. The average for eight
Sundays in 1915 is SS6. The organized
men's Bible class has grown to such
: proportions that the space allotted it
! in the school has become too small.

That letter, received by Miss Mary

of the Home and War Relief Commit- j

Mabel T. Boardman. chairman of the
national relief board of the American I
Red Cross, of the worth of the local j
! emergency work.
Contributions of seeds of a total
j value of SSO for use by the refugees
iin planting their gardens were re
ceived by the foreign relief division.
They will be shipped at once. Sup
plies for refugees were shipped Sat

week. Workbags containing pin
cushions, scissors, three colors of
darning cotton. thread. buttons,
needles, safety pins, hooks and eyes,
tape and thimble, are included in the
supplies to the refugees.
Of the supplies sent jointly by the
Red Cross and foreign divisions three
boxes went to a hospital in Servia 1
located in a windowless tobacco fac- ;

AT least a dozen little folks have
written to the Telegraph asking
that the Washington's Birthday
story published some years #go be re
printed. Here it is:
Once upon a time a beautiful cherry
tree grew in an orchard of Old Vir
ginia, and although it was small it
had once been even smaller, for it
used to tell all the other trees round
about this story:
"Onfc day," it always began, "I was
a big red cherry lying on the ground
all tempting and ripe and sweet and
juicy. A little boy with golden curls,
smiling face, and straight limbs came
along. I think he must have been
only two or three years old, for he
could scarcely toddle. First thing I
knew he had picked me up, and I saw
a smile spread over his baby face;
then before I knew what had hap
pened the reddest sort of lips opened
and I was thrust into a deep cave.
All the juicy part of me was bitten
off and went down a long dark hall
way—where it landed I never could
find out; but my seed, the only live
thing about me, the little boy took out
of his mouth and looked at it. Then
sitting down on the ground, he
started playing with the dirt, and be
fore I knew it, he had stuck me way
down into the earth with his chubby
little fingers."
"And then what happemd " asked
the .other trees, for they always loved
to hear this story from the little tree.
"Well. I thought I was done for,"
the little tree would continue, "byt
good old Mother Earth took care of
me; the little leaves pitied me and
made me a patch work quilt; King
Winter laid a snow blanket over me;
and the next Spring when the rains
came I felt a queer feeling stirring in
side me. I burst that seed. I pushed
and pushed; I stuck out my nose and
here I was! You all know the rest.
I often wonder whether the little fel
low they call George who plays In
dian around here with a little hatchet,
is not the baby grown older who stuck
my seed into the earth and gave me
new life?"
Thus the trees chatted and swayed
and swayed and chatted in the Vir
ginia orchard, while a little boy In
Knickerbockers ran in and out among
them, playing his childish games.
Every now and then the boy's father
came to see how his orchard grew,
and one day he noticed the little
cherry tree growing in such a queer
spot, and seeing it was a straight
beautiful tree he loved it better than
all the trees of his orchard, so often
bringing his small son he sat under its
low branches. There he told him stor
|ics of men, gTeat and brave and true
men who knew how to tell the truth
and how to be brave even when it was
hard. And as little George listened,
the little tree also heard, and' learned
to love the father, and the tfuth and
the stories of brave men who dared
to do right.
One day, however, the little boy
came to the orchard in his play, and
was full of fire and war—and boyhood
(which is just manhood not grown
up)—and the little tree saw he was
hunting for something to do which
looked BIG. Suddenly he' spied the
poor little tree.
"Ha! ha!" said he. "The very
thing! I'll chop this down, and show
how strong I am."
So although the little tree tried
hard to plead for its life, although it
tried hard to tell George what nice
cherries it could give him in a few
years—he started in. "Chip" went the
little hatchet, and "chip" again;
"chop"] sounded the strokes, and
"chop" again: never did George stop
until the poor little tree, quivering
with fright lay on the ground. Just
then the little bojt's father came into
the orchard.
"Who chopped my cherry tree?"
asked he. And the little tree breath
ing its last could scarcely believe this
was th# same kind man who had sat
under its low branches fondling his
son, who stood there glowering above
"If I can find the fellow who did
this thing," said he, "I'll punish him
severely, and there was fight in his
eye. and strength in his arm.
"I wonder what little George will
do?" thought the dying tree. "I hope
he will not lie." And although It was
dying, it tried to whisper: "Kemem
ber the stories we heard on this spot,
little George!"
Whether the child heard or not, I
do not know. But I do know that he
stood right up, and It seemed to the
little tree he was almost as big and
strong and brave looking as his father.
He stood up and facing the angry man,
As the cherry tree breathed Its last,
a strong man held in his arms a little
soldier—-a boy who dared to do right,
and tell the truth even If he should
suffer for It. And the little cherry tree
was happy even although It could
never grow up.
And was this the end of the tree
that never grew up ?
I do not know—but I love to think
that after the stars came twinkling
into the blue sky, a little boy crawled
out of a house, and cut a tender twig
from the dead body of a little tree—

"Plans for a campaign to materially

The latest step to be taken, according
