Washington. — Secretary Weeks of

why so many appeals are coming
from Colorado for money to relieve
suffering resulting from the Pueblo
flood when so much relief already
has been sent there that it cannot
Noticing that a committee of Wash-
ington citizens, organized for the pur-

Pueblo aid. the secretary of war de-
termined to acquaint the public with
the facts in the situation as he knows
"I want the people to know,” the
secretary said, “that the relief al-
ready sent to Pueblo is more than
adequate and I cannot see what is
going to be done with the money now
being asked for, unless the authori-
ties in Pueblo propose to use it to
reconstruct buildings and property
damaged by the flood.”

Washington. — President Harding
and his cabinet have decided to
launch their plan for refunding the
nation’s 10 billion dollar war loans
to the allies into definite obligations
and for the sale of such securities to
the American people.
The first step on the part of the
administration will be to ask congress
for specific authority to carry out
this plan when it is worked out in
detail by the treasury.
This is one phase of a vast and
complicated project for the financing
of World War debts, comprising not
only the 20 billion dollar loans of the
allied and associated nations to each
ether but the 33 billion dollar German

unload them and could feed the whole
population of the city with non-perish-
ables for one month. Out of 407
tents erected, only 59 are occupied,
out of 250 beds In field hospital, less
than 70 are occupied. Further emer-
gency supplies or sending of anyone
to distribute them is unnecessary.
Truck and wagon trains have arrived
and are working.
Funds Provided for Clean-Up.
“The principal trouble needing im-
mediate relief,” the secretary added,
"is the removal of mud and debris
and the repair of the water facilities
of the city—all in the interests of
proper sanitation and to prevent an
epidemic. The secretary of war there-
fore has authorized the expenditure
of not to exceed $100,000 for the pur-
pose of cleaning up the city and it Is
now estimated by Colonel Caples that
the work of removing mud and debris
can be accomplished by June 30 at
a cost of al $85,000.

It had been expected that the Yap

In dealing with their debts to each
The American government loans to
the allies are:
To Great Britain.......$4,210,000,000
To France............. 2,750,000,000
To Italy............... 1,625,000,000
To Belgium........... 400,000,000
To Russia............. 190,000,000
To Jugo Slavia......... 100,000,000
To other allies......... 175,000,000
Nearly 1 billion more is now due
from the allies in interest on these
loans which has not been paid for
two years and all will not be paid for
another year at least.
Under the Harding refunding plan
these loans to the allies which are
now in the form of 5 per cent ac-
knowledgements of indebtedness,
would be refunded into bonds matur-
ing thirty or forty years hence at a
higher rate of Interest. The increase
In the Interest rate above 5 per cent
would be sufficient to yield the addi
tional amount due to the United
States in defaulted interest.

Riga.—Despite a multitude of new

being confronted by the Russian Bol-

cities with food from the country dis-

villages with cash and goods for ex-

themselves handicapped at every turn
by the disorganization of the trans-
port system. Sometimes the agents
are attacked and robbed.

If Yod Need a Medicine
You Should Have the Best
Have you ever stopped to reason why
it is that so many products that are ex-
tensively advertised, all at once drop out
of sight and are soon forgotten? The
reason is plain—the article did not fulfill
the promises of the manufacturer. This-
applies more particularly to a medicine.
A medicinal preparation that has real
curative value almost sells itself, as like-
an endless chain system the remedy is
recommended by those who have been
benefited, to those who are in need of it.
A prominent druggist says “Take for

preparation I have sold for many years
and never hesitate to recommend, for in
almost every case it shows excellent re-
sults, as many of my customers testify.

According to sworn statements and
verified testimony of thousands who have
used the preparation, the success of Dr.
Kilmer’s Swamp-Root is due to the fact,
so many- people claim, that it fulfills al-
