The moment "Pape's Diapepsin"
reaches the stomach all
distress goes.
Instantly stops any sourness
gases, heartburn, acidity,
"Really does" put bad stomach in
order—"really does" overcome indi
gestion, dyspepsia, gas, heartburn and
sourness in five minutes—that —just
tjjat—makes Pape's Diapepsin the
largest selling stomach regulator in
the world. If what you eat ferments
into stubborn lumps, you belch gas
and eructate sour, undigested food and
acid; head is dizzy and aches; breath
l'oul; tongue coated; your lnsides filled
with bile and indigestible waste, re
member the moment "Pape's Dia
pepsin" comes in contact with the
stomach all such distress vanishes.
It's truly astonishing—almost marvel
ous, and the joy is its harmlessness.
A large fifty-cent case of Pape's Dia
pepsin will give you a hundred dollars'
worth of satisfaction or your druggist
hands you your money back.
It's worth its weight in gold to men
and women who can't get their stom
achs regulated. It belongs in your
home—should always be kept handy
in case of a sick, sour, upset stomach
during the day or night. It's the
quickest, surest and most harmless
stomach regulator in the world.
Pape's Diapepsin instantly neutral
izes the acids in the stomach, stops
food fermentation or souring, absoros
gases and starts the digestion. Ttie
relief is quick, sure, wonderful —stom-
ach sufferers have a pleasant, surprise
awaiting them.—Advertisement.

4 British officers, 29 British marines
and sailors, 166 men of crews of enemy
steamers, among them 103 Indians,
as prisoners, and j1,000,000 marks in

The vessel captured fifteen enemy
steamers, the greater part of which
were sunk and a small part of which
were sent as prizes to neutral ports.

the Moewe also laid out mines to

The Moewe, previously made famous
by her exploits, has performed one of
the most spectacular feats of the war i
on the seas by reaching a home port 1
in safety. The great German naval I
port of Wilhelmshaven is on the North
Sea, which is patrolled with ceaseless
vigilance by British warships. It is
through these waters, which have been
blocked off in districts for patrol by
the different British units, that the
Moewe must have threaded her way
to home and safety.
At lgast part of the gold captured
by the Moewe was taken from the
Appam, which put in at Newport News

Lieutenant Herg with a German prize

Measure Urges Greater Force
of Trained Men Than Senate;
Available at Once
Washington. Marcli ti.—With the
introduction to-day of the House
Army bill by Chairman Hay, of the
Miliitary committee, the second of the
national defense measures recom
mended by President Wilson was be
fore Congress. The first of these
measures, the Senate army bill, was
Introduced Saturday.
The House bill, the result of months
of work and investigation, was ac
companied by a report which asserts
that the committee believes it has
succeeded in embodying the measure
"every featur which is necessary to
bring about a reasonable plan for na
tional defense."
As> completed the measure proposed
to increase the regular army to
a strength of 140,000 lighting- troops
which means the addition of forty
thousand men and 7,43 9 officers. It
also provided 786 additional officers
or detached service with the National
Guard, military schools and else
where. A maximum strength, how
ever. is fixed at 170,000 men.
Draft Guardsmen
The bill provides for federalization
of the National Guard under a mili
tia pay bill substantially similar to
that proposed in the Senate bill. The
House plans, however, differ from
the Senate bill in that the President is
authorized to draft National Guards
men into the l-'ederal service on the
outbreak of war. The ultimate
strength of the Guard is greater un
der the House plan since a minimum
force of 425,000 is stimulated to be
organized within five years. The Sen
ate plan provides for approximately
250.000 Guardsmen.
In the House bill, as in the Senate,
an officers' reserve corps is provided
for, but the House plan would double
the enrollment at the military acad
emy. Chairman Hay's report esti
mates that a force of 1,324,790 men
trained for military service, "will be
at once available upon the passage of
this bill." To reach this total he relies
upon the regulars with a strength
of 140,000 and a reserve of 60,000,
upon 129,000 National Guardsmen, the
Guards' present strength, and upon
995,970 former regulars or National

Mexico four months studying and col
lecting birds for the State of Penn
sylvania. He was at Tampico three
weeks ago when Ward and his wife
reported to the American consul and
asked to be sent home.
Shoot Through Floor
' Their story, according to Mr. Brew
ster. was that three Mexicans, all
wearing army uniforms, came to their
home after raiding the home of an
other American, a negro, who lived
nearby. The Mexicans; demanded that
Ward and his wife surrender, which
they refused to do. The Mexicans then
crawled under the house and began to
shoot up through the floor. Ward had
a shotgun, Mr. Brewster continued,
that he had hidden away and three
charges of buckshot. With the gun
he crawled out of a rear window, took
the raiders by surprise and killed two,
while the third was found dead about
150 yards from the house. Knowing
that their lives were in danger, the
Wards at once went to Tampieo and
boarded a snip bound for Galveston.
Mr. Brewster who brought the story
to New York, has been in Mexico foe
the last four months. He was sent
there by Dr. Kalbfus, secretary of the
State Game Commission, to buy Mex
ican quail, which were to be imported
into this State.

Something new in baggage racks in
| day coaches may come with the new
steel cars now being built for the
Pennsylvania Railroad. Instead of the
series of .small racks, one brass rack
running the entire length of the coach
on each side will be provided for bag
' gage, according to reports.
For sonic time complaints have been
made that car aisles have been crowd
ed with baggage and parcels and that
in many coses the passengers take up a
large portion of the seats with dress
| suit cases and grips. It is believed
| that one long rack, sufficiently wide to
' hold a dress suit case, will solve the
| present problem.
Recently trainmen were requested
to keep a close watch on the number
j and style of baggage placed on the
' racks and to the crowding of seats
| with grips and other parcels and re
port all complaints.

Crude Oil Takes Expected
Jump to $2.59 a Barrel;
May Affect Gasoline
liy Associated Press
Pittsburgh, Pa., March 6. The
expected advance in the price of the
principal grades of crude oil appeared
to-day when the purchasing agencies
announced an increase in Pennsyl
vania crude of ten cents a barrel to
$2.50, the goal for which producers
were said to have been waiting.
Refining interests said they expect
ed this would bring into the market
a part, at least, of the vast stores of
crude oil held for the account of pro
ducers in tanks and pipe lines. They
held out no hope, however, that the
increased supply would affect the mar
ket vall3e of gasoline.
Uniform Compensation
Rates For Trolley Men
Uniform rates for workmen's com
pensation insurance of employes on
intcrurban as well as urban trolley
lines have been fixed by W. N. Ma
goun, general manager Pennsylvania
i rating and inspection bureau of the
i Workmen's Compensation Board.
Heretofore the rate for the interur
i ban or rural lines was more than $3
per hundred, while the rate for the
urban of city lines was $1.40 per hun
dred. By Mr. Magoun's new ruling
the latter rate will apply to the rural
lines as well as those operating only
in the city.
The adoption of a uniform rate was
urged by the Pennsylvania association
of Street Railways and the announce
ment of the ruling was received to
day by Henry M. Stine, secretary of
the organization.
Musi Carry One Passenger
Four Miles to Earn One
Penny Profit
The annual report of tlie Pennsyl
vania Railroad Company, is not all
cold facts and figures. According to
Girard in the Philadelphia Public
Ledger many interesting things will |
be found by a careful perusal. Here
are some of the discoveries made by!
the Philadelphia writer:
The Pennsy collects $4.00 from
freight for every SI.OO it gets from
To earn a profit of 1 cent, the com
pany had to carry a ton of freight five
and one-half miles.
To earn a profit of a penny, the
company had to carry a passenger'a
trifle over four miles. i
For hauling mail, just short of
SIO,OOO a day was collected.
Astounding, but true, that the
profit earned by carrying a passen
ger one mile in 1915 was 173 per
cent, greater than in the preceding
year, and still it was less than a |
quarter of a cent. You see what |
trifles President Rea deals with!
Converted into spot cash, the,
Pennsy's property would be almost
exactly enough to pay off the na- i
tional debt.
I>ast year the Pennsylvania earn
ed precisely 1 per cent, more on the j
whole sum invested in the prop
erty than it did in 1914.
A railroad dollar was a sad affair
in 1914, as it earned only 3.72 per
cent. When McKinley was re
elected president this same dollar
was earning 6.62 per cent, by work
ing on the railroad.
Not in six years has the Pennsyl
vania earned 5 per cent, on the total
value of its property, although It earn
ed in 1915 8% per cent, on its capi
tal stock.
Theoretically, the Pennsylvania
could stop running all trains and
still remain out of a receiver's
hands by paying all bond interest
out of the income it receives from
the securities in its big strong
To corry a train from Philadel
phia t« New York $7.40 worth of
coal Is burned.
This same trip costs a $lO bill
for locomotive repair and deprecia
Don't despise a dime! The Penn
sylvania collected $203,000 from Its
parcel rooms in a year.
It required $3,600 to feed the
patrons of dining and buffet cars
every day.
The Pennsylvania system carried
in a year the equivalent of twonty
eight 'big freight train loads from
here to the moon.

40,000 German Cavalry
on Way Through Belgium

Starts Things Moving in a Let
ter Read in His Home Church
in Philadelphia
Governor BrumTmugli urged the
election of legislators who will vote
for a county local option bill in a
letter read yesterday in the Governor's
home church, the First Church of the
Brethren, Philadelphia.
The letter was read by the Rev. Dr.
Homer W. Tope, superintendent of the
Philadelphia district of the Anti-
Saloon League, who spoke on "Am
erica's Greatest Shame."
"The good people of Pennsylvania
are tremendously aroused over the
question of local option and a demand
for the enactment of a local option
bill can be heard in all of the sixty
seven counties of this commonwealth,"
the Governor wrote.
"Local option is understood too
thoroughly in Pftansylvania to require
definition. It is the right of the ma
jority to rule on the question as to
whether or not licenses for the sale
of intoxicating liquor shall be granted
in a community.
"We apply the American principle
of majority rule to the election of our
public officials. There is no reason
why this principle should not be ap
plied to the granting of licenses for
(he sale of intoxicating liquors. The
right to grant or refuse liquor licenses
should never have been vested in the
judiciary; it is not a judicial function;
and what is worse jt tends to degrade
the high office of judge, and to cause
the judicial contests throughout the
State to degenerate into tights between
the pro-liquor and anti-liquor forces.
"The judges want to be relieved of
the duty of passing on liquor licenses,
and the people are ready to assume
the responsibility. Let us work con
certedly for the nomination and elec
tion of members to the legislature
who will settle this vexing problem by
placing on the statute books of Penn
sylvania a county local option law."
Horace Greiger, who was chairman
of the special local option committee
of Philadelphia during the campaign
, of the Legislature last Spring, will be
, a candidate for the Republican nomi
| nation for member of the assembly
| from the fifteenth district. This dis
trict comprises the twenty-second and
the forty-second wards.
In announcing his candidacy yes
terday, Mr. Geiger, who lives at 302
Pelham road, Germantown, said he

\ Governor Brumbaugh in his tight for

Make Furious Assaults
Meanwhile the testing of the French
j strength by furious assaults on the
! main defenses is continuing. Illustra
j tlve of this was yesterday's attack on
| the left of the Douaumont sector, near
I the Cote Du Poivre. There the French
i lines also held firm, according to
Paris, while In the immediate front
of Douaumont the German assaults
were temporarily suspended, the
heavy French artillery continuing its
answer to the rain of giant shells
which the Teuton 42s and similar big
pieces were pouring upon the defen
sive trenches.
j Correspondents who have been at
j (lie front quote French military men
as declaring that the German achieve
ments so far in the great battle for
Verdun have resulted merely in re
storing the lines to the positions they
occupied at the beginning of 1914,
before the French, in a series of local
attacks, began expanding the defen
sive area about the fortress.
Bombarding Verdun
Verdun itself Is now under German
artillery fire, but, according to corre
spondents, little damage has been
Indications that the Germans may
be planning another offensive move
ment on the western front are con
tained in reports from Dutch sources
that important troop movements are
going on behind the front in Belgium.
Forty thousand German cavalrymen
are said to be on their way to the
battle line near Ypres, in which sector
the famous German attempt to break
through and reach Calais occurred in
April, 1915.
From the French front to Asia
Minor there have been no events of
importance in a military way so far
as the official bulletins show. In Ar
menia the Russians report continu
ing their pursuit of the defeated Turks
and the drive southward toward the
Tigris and far-off Bagdad.

Russ Slaughter Turks
at Bitlis in Revenge For
Massacre of Armenians
By Associated Press
London, March 6.—The Russian
soldiers at Bitlis, according to a Pet
rograd dispatch to the Morning Post,
took a terrible revenge on the Turkish
troops for the cruelty which the Turks
were alleged to have practiced toward
the Armenians in that district. The
correspondent says:
"A terrible slaughter followed the
capture of the Turkish positions at
Bitlis. The Russian troops had wit
nessed at Van, Mush and many other
places an appalling sight, the mas
sacre. namely by Turkish fanatics of
tens of thousands of Armenian Chris
tian men. women and children. It
was unlikely after such deeds tljat
any quarter should be given. This
killing completed the destruction of
