A story of tne horrors ot uerman military rule in iseigium ana ot tne tortures in flicted upon Belgians to force their labor tor their enemies was revealed here tonight in hitherto unpublished letters to the government from an American official who spent many months in the midst of the reign of terror. Of the German's explanation that they deported only the unemployed among the conquered people, this of ficial says: , "They needed skilled and active artisans and these men were naturally still unemployed. The authorities did not, however, evidently dare to an nounce their real wishes." "Belgium at this moment," says s letter written in December, "is going through a reign of terror, it is hard to believe that the dark moments of the French revolution were very much worse. "The fashion ,in which any given recruitment is carried out depends very largely on the character of the officer in command. A guard of Uhlans is generally necessary, some times backed with machine guns. At times it is thought necessary to charge the watching crowds. "Various methods are employed to force the men who refuse to sign and work. Starvation is the most promi nent. Men are placed in an ex cessively heated room and when in a great sweat thrust out of doors. "In Ghent it is learned con fidentially that 235 men have died from the treatment or work they re ceived. In more than one case the wife was summoned to the com mandatur and handed a bundle of clothes with the laconic remark 'Your husband is dead.'"

Adv. Seed That Fell on Good Ground The first Pierce-Arrow Motor Trucks, sold six years ago, were like seed that fell on good ground. They have borne a hundred fold to their owners and to us. , Owners who began with one or two Pierce-Arrows have steadily increased their purchases year after year. But they did not buy in quantities until their first Pierce-Arrow had been thoroughly tried out under the most exacting conditions of actual service. Then on the solid basis of operating results they standardized their fleets with PIERCEARROW Motor Trucks Or example: The Texas Company bought its first Pierce-Arrow truck in 1912, and began a series of operating tests that led to the purchase of four more Pierce-Arrows in 1915. These in turn were tested under varied service conditions with results so satisfactory that the Texas Company has now purchased a total of 110 Pierce-Arrow trucks. a, -w- - 1 J. T.

In fact, Nujol isn't medicine at all in the ordinary sense. Nujol, unlike drugs or physics, is not absorbed by the system, and hence cannot form a habit. It acts as a mechanical lubricant, keeping the intestinal contents soft, soothing the inflamed mucous membranes and so promoting normal movements. For children, particularly, no other remedy is at once so harmless and so effective. As Nujol is not a physic but a lubricant, it does not gripe or upset the system. Being tasteless, it is not unpleasant to take. The Standard Oil Company (New Jersey) has used its world-wide re sources in producing Nujol and its reputation is behind the product. Nujol is the only remedy for constipation we manufacture. The genuine sold only in pint bottles bearing Nujol trodt-niark. All bottles filled at our Nujol plant, ab solutely modern and sanitary.
