Henry Starr, Oklahoma bank robber who was paroled two years ago by tho governor of that state, was shot and seriously wounded today when he and two companions attempted to rob the state bank at Harrison. "While' the bandits were taking available cash, W. J. Meyers, former president of the bank, entered, and was forced to go Into the vault. There he obtained a rifle, secreted for emer gency, and from the darkness fired at the robbers, bringing Starr down with a bullet below the heart. Starr's com panions fled and tonight are believed to be surrounded in a neighboring woods. ' . They obtained no loot, as all tho cash had been stuffed into Starr's pockets. Henry Starr was born at Fort Gib son, Indian Territory, Dec. 2, " 1872. His father was George Starr, known as "Hop" Starr, and was a half-breed Cherokee Indian. His mother was a fourth Cherokee. Henry grew up In the Cherokee nation and at the age of 16 became a cowboy. Starr's first notorious act was thei killing of Floyd "Wilson, a. railroad de tective .in 1898, near Lenapah, In the Cherokee nation. Starr and "Wilson rode up to each other on the road and fought a duel, the former coming out victorious. When only a youth" Starr became known as a dead shot with the rifle and "six shooter." He has been ar rested many times for bank robbery and when convicted became- such a model prisoner that in a short time he was always pardoned. ' Starr once was arrested with "Kid" Wilson at Colorado Springs and taken back to Fort Smith, Ark., where they were tried in the federal court for the many crimes they were alleged to have committed in that state. They were convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment. As a federal prisoner at Columbus, Ohio, Starr served only a short time, however, his sentence being commuted by President McKln ley. His citizenship was restored by President Roosevelt in 1907. When captured ia 1915, following robbery of two banks at Stroud, Okla.. Starr wis wounded and permanently crippled. He was convicted in August, 1915, foe the Stroud robbery and sen tenced to 25 years In the penitentiary but was released March 15, 1919, by Governor Robertson. At the time it was explained that the parole was granted because of Information he gave which led to the capture and conviction of "two members of the gang with which he had been asso ciated. The last report from Starr on file at the state pardon and parole office In Oklahoma City, is 'a letter from Kan sas CKy, written November 1, 1920, in which he said he was "getting along all right" in a motion picture venture. 66G will break a Cold, Fever and Grippe quicker than anything we know, preventing pneumonia.

Three inter nationaKy known Austrian physi cians have joined in a statement to the effect that Austrian children will remain permanently stunted in growuh unless adequate relief is given immediately. The physicians are Dr..Eiselsberg, Vienna brain spe cialist and one of the leading sur geons of the city; and Drs. Lorenz and Pirquet, the latter the inventor of the tuberculin test and for two years professor at Johns Hopkins un iversity. The statement, which has been made by request, says: "We, the undersigned, wish to bring to the "attention of the world that recent statistics gathered in Vi enna show Austrian,' children subnor mal both In weight and height. Re cent examination of apprentices in Vienna revealed that boys of 17 years of age have an average height of five feet two inches, Instead, of the normal height of five feet six inches, and that their weight averaged 101 piounds instead of a normal weight of 114 1-2 pounds. "Altogether we may state that at the end of Juvenile- growth the p ver age boys of Vienna are about four inches below normal height and about 16 pounds below normal weight. Girls are correspondingly stunted. "We also believe from a medical standpoint these children will never have their normal weight and height but will go through life in this stunted condition. We believo that children of succeeding age and class es, unless given sufficient food, will also remain undeveloped and so go through life. "An awful proof of uhder-nournish-emnt is great distortion, caused by rickets, of limbs of nearly all the children who come to orthepedic wards. "A most depressing fact is the fre quent occurrence that young boys and girls, asking for relief of severe pains in their feet or legs, are ascer tained to be dragging themselves on broken bones which had cracked noiselessly an! given way on account of the unhealthful condition of their emaciated systems. (Such dep?orab!e developments were unheard of previ ous to the war, and can now only be eombatted by giving children ade quate and sufficient food."

Ruth, shown on the right, was "positively Identified" at first as Mary. And no wonder not only do they look alike, but both girls have a car on the left wrist and a small mole on the cheek. SNEADS Feb. 18. A charming social event of Valentine day was the shower given by Mrs. T. H. Iludgens in honor of Mrs. Jack Harrell, a recent bride. The pretty home of Mrs. Hudgens was daintily decorated with flying cupiids, hearts and wedding bells In the valen tine colors of red and white. The decorations in the dining room and the refreshments also carried out the valentine motif. The guests were re ceived by Miss Emma McKeown and registered by Mrs. L. C. Butler and given numbered red and white hearts. These were used in several games and later as place cards. .Little Misses Allisson Hudgens and Maggie Hun ter, daintily gowned in lace and crepe de chine, received the gifts In a basket. The shower was discovered by Mrs. Harrell following the "thread of life," given her by Mrs. Hudgens. After many windings it led her into an ad joining room where the tiny daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Campbell lay. en throned among japonicas and many beautiful gifts. Mrs. Hudgens was assisted In en tertaining her guests by Mrs. R. R. Carpenter and Mr. John C. Boone, who gave several beautiful violin and piano selections; Mrs. L. C. Butler, Mrs. John Hunter, Misses Bonnie Wil son, Elizabeth Logan and Elizabeth King. Mrs. Harrell was formerly Miss Elizabeth Wilson, eldest daughter of the late Dr. P. B. Wilson of Sneads, and niece of Hon. C. L. Wilson of Marianna. The many gifts she re- j ceived attested the high regard her friends have for her. (By Associated Press) PEKING. Feb. ' 18.
