A pathetic signt was witnessed at the foreign department of the Dollar Bank about noon today when an aged foreigner was robbed of $1,500 in the lobby of the bank. The man had drawn his livings, $1,500, intending to teturn to his family in Kurripe. He had the money on deposit for several years, watching it accumulate with the hope of going back to hii? loved ones. When the money had 'been handed to the depositor, he took it to one of the counters in the lobby and began to count it.. A stranger unnoticed by the depositor, stepped up and drop ped a dollar Mil on the floor beside the man, at the same time saying in his nativu tongue, "You dropped seme cf v-ui money, mister." Tba rase worked as expected and the man with the money stooped to pick up the $1 bill, believing it was his. As he stooped over the stranger grabbed the man's money and a companion bowled the old fellow over on the floor. The stranger and his companion immediately disappeared into the street. The act was ! committed so suddenly the men made their get-away before even a good description could be secured of them. Then followed the sad heartrending scene. The victim began to moan and cry as he rushed after the fleeing thieves. Not being able to talk Englisn his protesta tlons were not understood. When he realized the men had escaped with his money he fainted. The police were called and when the unfort-nate revived he was out of his mind. It is feared the loss of his savings will result in the death of the foreigner, who was taken to the police station raving mad. A number t friends of the man were with him in the hank and they tried to comfort him, but without avail. The foreigner had planned to leave Youngstown for Europe tonight. The loss of his money leaves him without a cent and the savings of years have disappeared.

City Councilman James K. Love in talking abou the proposed increase, stated that generally speaking he did not think there was anyone in New Castle who would kick against paying seven cents fare, if the service on the local lines was increased so that passengers could he assured of safety when riding on the cars. He also stated that if, the company did not repair its tracks and allowed them to remain in their present condition, he did not think the increase was Justifiable, and that as far as he was concerned he would make a strong fight against the fare increase. County Commissioner Leslie said that although he did not ride the Btreet cars very much, he could not see how they had the nerve to ask for a seven cent fare when every Nearly one-third of the deaths In the United States in the year 1017 were j due severally to one of three causes j heart disease, pneumonia and tubercu- I losis -the census bureau's annual re-1 port on mortality statistics says: Nearly another third of the deaths i resulted from the following nine caus- j es Bright's disease and nephritis, ap- oplexy, cancer, diarrhoea and enteritis, j arterial diseases, influenza, diabetes, diphtheria and bronchitis.

In a broader sense indeed the Spirit of "liberty or, death" was the driving force of the war, and the outcome a promise that liberty the American idea of Liberty, the right of man to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." will prevail in the world at large.

In spite of the skill of the most expert bird authorities 'in America, this little feathered hero, who first notified American headquarters of the plight of th "(Lost Battalion" in charge of Major Charles S. Wittlesey, died at the pigeon lofts at Potomac park, Washington, D. C. Many an American lad would have been proud to have performed so many heroic deeds for his flag. Since carrying the famous message, Cher Ami had been personally petted by General Pershing and tradition of all time was shattered when the American general in an official memorandum to the war department cited the little bird for the right to wear a distinguisnea service cross. In its last flight through whistling shrapnel, Cher Ami was shot through the breast and the right leg was torn away. Two months ago a specially appointed pigeon expert was selected to bring the invalid message bearer home. A basket of rattan was lined with pads of cotton to ease the long ocean voyage. At Potomac park one of the screened porches of the pigeon hospital was set aside tor tne exclusive use ot Cher Ami.

A ramark-able example of the strides reconstructive surgery for wounded soldiers has taken during the present war was furnished lately in Montreal, when four military hospital special trains passed through that city bearing returned convalescent soldiers. The majority of these men were surgical cases, most of whom had I been hit in the head or face and I had been kept for months or even ; years in the British military hospi- I tals, having their wounds tended and their faces reconstructed where there had been mutilation by shell fragments or shrapnel and bullet wounds. Many men had rebuilt noses, the nrierinals havine been either completely or partly shot away. So skillfully had the army surgeons rebuilt these that the victims' faces seemed perfectly normal. A num ber of others had lost ears, and these had been replaced by grafting and reconstruction work so that the injuries caused by the enemy shells had been remedied to such an extent that nothing abnormal could easily be detected, and the majority of these men had normal hearing. Other men had suffered severct Injuries to their ' cheek bones and jaws, the latter hurts involving, in many, the reconstruction of the bone framework of their Jaws and the inserting of artificial teeth, the work with some of the jaw cases involving an extraordinary amount of rebuilding. There was an infinite variety of head injuries among the returned soldiers, some of the more severe being matter for marvel that men could sustain such wounds and still survive to undergo surgical reconstruction, which eventually re-4 turned their faces to normal conditions except those who had suffered eye Injuries, or who had had too much of their features shot away to make complete restoration possible.

Two tablets were unveiled. To witness the ceremony thousands of Americans from all parts of the country came to Deadwood. Governor Korbeck of South Dakota presided Bt the ceremonies on the summit of the mountain, and Major General Leonard Wood, was the orator of the day. The arrangements were under direction of the Society of the Black Hills Pioneers, of which Colonel Roosevelt was one of the two honorary members.' The movement to provide the memorial had its inception at a meeting ot the Society of Black Hills Pioneers last January, when a suggestion of Captain Seth Bullock a plan to change the name of Sheep Mountain to that oi Mount Theodore Roosevelt was adopt-ed. Sheep Mountain, one of the highes peaks in the Black Hills and the high est detached peak in the chain o: mountains so designated. lies thre miles from Deadwood. If is accessible to its summit by a broad highway suitable for teams or automobiles while several trails, safe and convenient for horsemen or persons on fool lead to the top of the mountain. Frorr Wyoming and Montana 'are visible. The view from the top is unsurpassed for beauty in this section of the country. The city of Deadwood is bearing the expense entailed by erection on the summit of the mountain of a round tower on which will be placed the bronze tablet bearing the legends telling a part of the life of Theodore Roosevelt and his contribution to Americanism. One ot the tablets bears the following inscription: In Memory of Theodore Roosevelt The American. October 27, 1S58, January 6, 1919. Society of Black Hills Pioneers. July 4, 1919. The other tablet pays a tribute to the services rendered by Colonel Roosevelt to his country. YOUNGSTOWN. Dr. J. H.
