These In War Areas Lack Equipment And Supplies. • Hospitals without doctors, medicines or linen; major operations performed without anesthetics.' patients lying at the* point of death without fuel to keep them warm, and a great lack of food and bandages, were the outstanding horrors In Dr. Halm I. Davis’ descrip tion cf the medical situation among the Jews of Poland when lie sp*>ke before u meeting v>f prominent men called to h geVnor by Felix.M. Warburg to discuss | Jew . h relief abroad. Dr. Dav is, a ! well-know a* j4ychiatrist of Chicago ! was a major in the American Red j Cress during the war and is thoroughly j familiar with Polish conditions. “In Poland there are no hospitals j or medical facilities according to our ' nnderstandfhg ot the terms." said Vr Davis. "There is a great lark of cloth ing, fuel, medicines, disinfectants and even doctors in Poland. A large per centage of the doctors have been kill ed in the war and the medical schools have beeji virtually closed for several years. As a result medical attention Is extremely scarce. The Jew ish hos pitals. once progTeasive and up-to-date, are In a terrible state of demor&llza- j tfoa. ••i have seen major operations per formed without anesthetics.

TAI SHAN A SACRED PLACE | Chinese Mountain BaW to Be tho Oldest Permanent Place of Worship on Earth. t There are five sacred mountains !n i China, and tho most sacred of all la l Taf Sbon. the Great mountain, said to be the? oldest permanent place of wor ! ship in t!*** world, 2UOO 11. C. Tnl Shan’s crest hud been a regular scene of sacrifices arid prayers for nobody knew bow long. Emperors and lesser officials, even Confucius the Wise, Journeyed up the long, narrow trail of Tni Shan to come near to the God f Heifven and Earth and made their prayers before Him. Since those days of simple worship, rnnnyf temples and shrines have been built on Tal Shan’s slopes. Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, ail are repre sented, and there are temples, too, to the Lady of the Mountain, who Is caHed by some a fairy, by others a goddess, and by others the spirit or soul of the rnOuntairt. Whatever her character, the lady Is well repre sented <n her mountain top and her shrines are popular. The Journey up the mountainside Is accomplished by tho traveler partly in* a swinging chair supported by Chinese bearers and partly on foot*The “Way” consists of a granite walk, Interrupted every little while by flights of steps Wlhich stretch on ami on mid become steeper and closer together until the pilgrim has mounted (!,(JOO steps and Ihe peak of Tal Shawls reached. Here there are more temples and thick incense and grave obi priests who announce a pilgrim’s presence to the gods by ringing deep-toned bells. A little way off is pointed out a rock overhanging a sheer precipice. From this rock, called "The- Royk of the Love of 1,1 fe,” persons who had sick rela tives used to fling themselves, hoping that the sacrifice of one life would appease the gods so that the other would be spared. Now the dangerous cliff is barred, and pilgrims are forced fo appeal to the gods In the conven tional < "hlnese methods. WILL BE WONDERFUL ROAD Highway of Solid Granite in the Rocky Mountains a Rival of the Appian Way. • Taking example from tlie famous Appian wav. which has the name of being the first great road undertaken by the Romans as a public work, the state of Colorado, with the help of an appropriation by the United States government, Is building n highway of solid granite In the Rocky mountains. No other highway in tin* world, it is predicted, will provide travelers with so magnificent a scenic setting, close to a sheer fall of 3.000 feet on the ( other side of tho great concrete posts and cables that will safeguard vehicu lar trattle. Om* gets an idea of the road from the practical statement that If Is costing ?2r>,000 a mile to build. Like the Appian way. on which long stretches of pavement first traveled over 300-odd years before tho Chris tian era, still remain practically per fect, the chairman nf r the Colorado highway commlssioirbelieves that Colo rado Is creating a work which will defy tho centuries and stand, on comple tion, ns the most wonderful road In th> modern world. Quite Comfortable, Thank You. A comfortable ' widow is Mrs. Amanda Jackson, colored. She Is drawing throe s'7.. r >o pensions, or . 172.5 M a month, for the loss of three husbands during the war, and will I draw Hint amount for 2<> years. Mrs. Jones’ husband died of spinal menin gitis soon after entering the service add taking out a SIO,OOO insurance policy. The widow married one * Smith. He took a maximum life In surance policy in her favor and was killed In action. Then Mrs. Jones- Smith married Private Jackson, fj re turul'd soldier, who also named her In a SIO,OOO policy. Influenza made In r a widow a third time In less than two years. The war risk bureau de clines to make known her address, doubtless fearing that she would be inundated with offers of marriage. Brother to the Mosquito. The prolonged drought has produced a prolific host of Insects, and certain species of gnats are developing a ihs eoncertinc interest in ankles, says lotn don Daily Mail. Some women are wearing linen bandages as a protec tion. An official at the Natural History museum. South Kensington, states that the chief offender is a tiny Insect bear ing the long name of Ochlerotatus dor salis. which breeds In estuaries and explores inland. It is to be found all , ; around London, especially on the Sur- , rev downs. Another bloodthirsty gnat is Jhe Pullcarls. which is robeled at the mu- i scum as “particularly troublesome in the evening. Its bite is severe, and with many people causes bad sores." Spanish Birth Rate. New It is in Spain that they are beginning to worry about the rising death rate and the falling birth rate. I'r. Gomez Ooana presents in K1 Sig*o j Medico (Barcelona) statistics for sev eral years, showing that In 1912 the death rate was 21.(5 per 1,000 popula- 1 tion. and that hy 1917. before the ad- J vent of the pandemic of Influenza. It had risen to 20.10. And the birth rate ! < fell from 31.00 per thoisand In 1912 to 20.2 in 1017. Official tiguros for 191 S are not yet j ! available, but in the city of Madrid j th*' death rate nose in that year -to j • 30.37, while the birth rate fell to 26.70. \ j The figure for 1918, howrever, are ah- ; normal because of the pandemic. j All men are born free amf jequal hut most of them spoiLit by getting * married. , . v '•Su* . . > . ■ THE, E\ E.MNG CAPITAL AND MARYLAND GAZETTE, ANNA?US.
