It Is regarded as social as well ;ns physical sanitation on a largo scult that will lmo a direct bearing on Cu lture conditions In America. 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 ! States. 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 States during tho current twelve months. The Red Cross Is co-operat Ing fully with the United States ITealth Service in this work and through Its Junior Red Cross Is doing much to spread among children the principles 'of sanitation. An appropriation of $1, 000,000 has been mado for developing tho peace tlmo program of tho Red Cross by service to Its chapters In all regions. The appropriation of $18,200,000 Is exclusive of tho local expenditures of the 11,000 or more chapters. Administration expenses this year will bo $1,800,000. Last year thoy were $2,300,000.

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 readily compiled. 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 Snyii, "Now think we( of me," 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 Incidental. Youth's Companion. Not Dead Ones. I was using my seven pnssenger touring car to help n friend who -.vns running n bus line, but who wns tem porarily short of cars. We were mak ing certain routes nnd hnd on our wlndshle'ds cards giving our plnces of destination. I was suddenly called from my regular rpute to take a couple to tho minister to bo mnrrled. As wo wero going up tho street, with the brldu adorned with her white veil and the groom In his best suit, both sitting In back, I noticed that ninny, wo met wero convulsed with laughter. I didn't realize the cause until I renched tho parsonngo and found that I had failed to remove from tho wind shield tho sign : "This car to ho cem etery." Exchange. British Columbian Exports.
