remain in the field, fighting disease

repotred today to national headquar headquarters

the Baltic states and south Russia. He
expressed conviction that from now

most vital one. All energy is being
used to get relief supplies to satis
factory bases in the Baltic and Black
seas regions, while the unit assigned
to the Baltic states is being increased
in personnel from 54 to 70. Steps also
are being taken at Constantinople to
organize further relief measures in
behalf of the refugees of south Rus
Of the total American personnel a
large number are stationed in France,
conducting headquarters operations,
principally in connection with relief
supplies and their transportation. The
personnel attached to the various com

An outline of how the American
Red Cross is fulfilling the mission was
given by Colonel Olds as follows:

advice, the primary school children
were sent home.
The janitor, who runs the furnaces
at both schoolhouses, was certainly

throwing in the fuel ever since. He

FRENCH USE TOPICAL NAMES
Paris, Feb. 11. (By the Associat

ical topical names, for the most part ugly and
incongruous. An appeal has now been
issued that this custom cease, and
that the ordinary Christian names,
drawn from the Calendar of Saints,
should once more become universal
throughout the country. Among the
names given to some of the unfor unfortunate
tunate unfortunate children born during the war,
Joffrette and Joffreta are common. A
father of Bordeaux was anxious to
christen his daughter Revanche and
this name was also suggested by an
inhabitant of Montreuil for his son.
Place names, such as Namur, Liege,
Le Marne, Alsace-Lorraine, Mulhouse,
Verdun and Salonique are also now
quite usual. As for the Frances and
the Victories, it would be difficult to
tount them. One father wanted to
name his son Rintintin. after one of
the mascots, Nenette and Rintintin,
sold during the war. The registry
clerk, luckily for the Unfortunate
child, refused to register such a name,
as in France the only Christian names
which are recognized by the law are
those, which appear in the Calendar of
Saints. A campaign is now being or organized

patiently to hear something from your

My dear Lawyer: So far as we can
see, the trouble in this matter is owing
to you and your brother lawyers, who
have built a labyrinth of technicali technicalities

while the innocent become, lost. It
does not seem to us that the sheriff
and his officers, the county judge, the
state attorney or the grand jury have
overlooked anything they could do.
If you think you have proof of per perjury,

a warrant against the perjurers? It
is your right to do so. It's our opinion
that if Mr. Ditto, foreman of the
grand jury, and Mr. Scofield, state at attorney,

be convicted of false testimony, he
would riave been indicted at once.

OCALA EVENING STAR, MONDAY, MARCH 1, 1920
Atlanta. Ga. : "I suffered for a long time
from feminine weakness which caused me
to become all run
down, weak and
nervous, and I suf suffered
fered suffered with back backaches
aches backaches and paina in
my side. I was just
as miserable as one
could ever think of
being when I began
taking Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescrip Prescription
tion Prescription and it soon
built me up in
health acd strength
and I felt so much
improved in every
way. 'Favorite Prescription' is the best
woman's medicine I have ever taken and I
expect to continue to pratee it a3 long as I
live." MRS. ALICE MILAM, C7 Savan Savannah
nah Savannah St.
Augusta, Ga.: "Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription restored me to perfect health
when I had become a complete nervous
wreck. I was suffering with backaches,
caused by my kidneys becoming congested,
and my nerves were completely shattered.
I was not abl'e to do any work, I was so
weak. I could not sleep, I was so nervous,
and my appetite was very poor. I was just
a wreck when my mother gave me the
'Favorite Prescription and when I had
taken about five bottles I was well and
strong." M 113. N. L. GOODWIN, 1731
Hemorrhages and Nervousness
Macon, Ga.: "At the turn of life I
became terribly weak, very nervous and
run-down. One of my neighbors in Ala Alabama
bama Alabama had ben cured of a serious ailment
in Dr. Pierce's Institution in Buffalo, and
1 had always heard Dr. Pierce's medicines
spoken of so highly that I just made up my
mind to try 'Favorite Prescription.' Two
bottles of this medicine brought me thru
the critical time in splendid health and cured
me of the hemorrhages and nervousness. I
honestly do believe Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription to be the very lest medicine a
woman can take to help her thru this critical
period of life." MRS. JENNIE C.
