and to efface largily tho remaining

i Central Kuropo, (ho chief suffcrci
! from the conflict, today Is facing an
other winter of famine, pestilence an!
ruin. Typhus decreased much durluj
the summer months where last wlntei
it had Its greatest stronghold, but phy
slclans who Investigated the sltuatloi
at tho behest of tho League of UeJ
Cross Societies have given their un
I qualified opinion that this coming win
ter will bco a recurrence on an un
Prcccdcntcd scale. The Rod Crosi
feels It must continue preventive meas
,urcs abroad to keep this and othei
deadly maladies from tho Unficd
1 Millions for Work at Horns.
t When the disease was sweeping Cen
tral Europe last winter the Americas
Red Cross, with' the nld of tho govern
, meats of afTllctcd nations, undertook tin
, fight against it. Hospitals wcro estab
lished wherever posslblo and food, and
'clothing wero distributed to tho un
dernourished populations, who by rca
'son of their undernourishment wcr
j easy prey to tho epidemics. When
diRorcrnnizntinn rnnrrimitnii mar vnm
to tho great Inroads mado by tho dis
ease, by virtue of Its knowledge of tin
dlseaso and the presence of well es
tablished hospital centers, tho Ameri
can Red Cross this year will undertake
tho work with a new confidence.
Including tho total of $11,000,000 In
supplies left from the last fiscal year,
tho $31,.p00,000 Is $21,000,000 less than
tho expenditures for 1010-20.
Appropriations for domestic nctlvl
.ties total 510,700,000.
Tho largest Item of this "home"
budget Is $7,800,000 for civilian relict
work: This Includes service nnd as
sistance for families of soldiers, sail-
!ors and marines, and work Incidental
to disaster. Of tho total appropria
tion for civilian relief, $5,000,000 Is
held in reserve for tho carrying out of
actual disaster relief.
Reduced Overhead Expense.
I The Red Cross Invariably Is tho flrst
thought of a community visited by ca
lamity. With this In mind, It was de
tcrmlned by the Executive Committee
in preparing tho budget of 1910-20 tq
have a fixed reserve fund from whlcli
to draw In these Instances.
For assistance to soldiers, sailors
'and marines In hospitals and in camps
this year $1,000,000 has been set nslde.
Four million two hundred thousand'
dollurs has been appropriated for Im
provement of health and prevention
of disease throughout tho United

SPARED FAIR SEX
Oldtlme "Knights of the Road"
Not Always Stern.
ttvon Notorlouo Freebooters Have
Been Known to Succumb to
Feminine Wiles Captain Kldd
Among the Number.
t Highwaymen, f ancient ballads and
traditions concerning famous "knlghtii
of tho road" muy bo believed, huvo
often been pollto to Indies; but pirates,
rarely. Nevertheless-, the late Eliza
bet It Christophers llobson, In her de
lightful "Recollections of a Happy
Life," relates an lustitticu of a pollto
plrato who not only spared one of her
ancestresses from molestation but
made her a valuablo present. To bo
sure, tho lady In tho case, who was
Mrs. John Lion ("Sardlner of Gardiner's
Ksland, mado the first pollto advances,
and the pirate, who was none other
than tho notorious Cnpt. Kldd himself,
merely reciprocated In kind.
Tho owner of the Island was absent '
when Kldd landed upon It, and Mrs.
finrdlner, teirllled but keeping her wlti
about her, Invited the formidable free
hooter to dinner In the hope of placat
ing htm. Ho accepted, and Mm so
wisely and wlllly fed or ehnrmed him,
or both, 'thai he later sent to her two
rich gifts, both of which are still pre
served by her descendants: tho "Kldd
pitcher." now strengthened by a llver
Imnd bearing an Inscription recording;
Its history, and the "Kldd blanket," a
piece of superb embroidery two yards
long, In crimson, green nnd gold. When
the pitcher was presented, It was full
of rare East Indian sweetmeats; tho
blanket Is sometimes called tho "Kldd
altar cloth," since It was presumably
stolen from a South American or Mexi
can church In some plrallcal raid.
1 Among the most famous names la
Uie reprehensible but picturesque roll
of Rrltlsh highwaymen Is that of
Claude Duval, who, along with his
French nnme, possessed a dash of
French politeness, ntVast toward tho
fair and easily frightened sex. Ho Is
reputed on various occasions to Imvo
spared pretty ladles their rings or
lockets, If they begged him wlnnlngly
enough, or had the art, which one not
able hello of his era professed such a
useful one to u woman, of "being ablo
to Weep movingly, nnd that without
Streaking of Cheeks, of Redulng of
Nose, but 800 onely that Grate Tea res
of Pure Crlstnlt Slide softey from Lids
to Chlnne, Like as Dew Droppes upon
a Rose." Ills most notable concession
to feminine charm was not, however,
n complete surrender: It wns a bar
gain. Tho lovely lady with whom It
was innilo was promised Immunity for
all her rich Jewels, If she would but
descend from the coach nnd forthwith
dance n cornnto on the heath, with tho
gallant nnd graceful Claudo for her
partner n condition with which sho
A "knight of tho road," of less not
than Duval Indeed, qulto n minor,
modest flguro In tho nnnols of crime
nevertheless figured mngnnnlmously In
nn old, broad-sheet ballad, In which ho
assisted, Instead of despoiling, a lady
In distress. Sho wns, tho story ro
lotes, tho poor but beautiful widow of
a riotous young nobleman Just klllod
In a duel. Although of gentle blood,
she was beneath him In rank, nnd tho
match had been secret. When th
coach was hold up sho was on her way
to seek out her husbnnd's parents and!
ask their forgiveness and protection
for herself and her baby boy. All she
had to prove her case was her wedding
ring and her certificate of marriage,
penned and signed In miniature oml
carried In n locket round 'her neck.
When these two precious trinkets wera
demnnded aMho point of a pistol, sho
wns In despair; but tho robber, hear
lng her story, was moved to pity.
He cavo nor bnclc her email coM rlnit,
He put It her tinner on:
Says, "Voum nmj mine und yours oKnln.
Though hardly It was won." '
He cavo her back hor Kolclon loclcct: I

And itold and ruble 'to nil her pocket-
"O thanks, hind sir I says she.
If tho grateful pocketing of such
dubious gold and rubles by nn Innocent
nnd lovely heroine In distress seems
somewhat Mrange, the reader must ro
member that brond-sheet ballads of tho
road are concerned only with glorlflca
tlon of their highwaymen heroes; con
sistency, conscience nnd the heroines
themselves are nllko unimportant and

I was using my seven pnssenger
