MOB GERMAN NEWSPAPER OFFICES IN BRAZIL: Rio Janeiro, Sept. 26. - Gefman newspapers at Porto Alegre, in the state of Rio Grande de Soul, early this week so aroused the populace by criticizing Brazilian affairs, that at tacks were made on the plants ot three newspapers.

Twelve hundred thousand Belgian children are starving, but the pith of this appalling tragedy is that ten dollars is sufficient to provide for a Belgian child for a month, that ten dollars can purchase thirty days of life, and that often the bargain cannot be effected because the necessary money ia not to be had. The general rationing of the Belgian people provides for one bowl of soup and two slices of coarse bread, per person per diem. It is unnecessary to say by how much this is'insufficient to nourish the body of a growing xihild and to afford it some protection against the disease for which malnutrition paves an easy way of conquest. There are numerous charities in Belgium, all of which have for object the welfare of Belgian children, and all of which are almost entirely dependent upon the Belgian Relief Commis sion for the funds wherewith to carry on their .work. They are all hampered by air Insufficiency of funds. It has been a common sight, in many of the canteens established to provide special nourishment for debilitated children, to see the little tots, pleading and crying for food, removed from the food lines by canteen 'workers, not "because special nourishment was not all but essential for the preservation of their young lives, but because there were more urgent cases and-Insufficient food to provide for all. For four terrible years the Belgian Relief Commission has been striving to save the next, generation for Belgium. It has'"accbmplished wonders but child mortality' in the unhappy little kingdom is still exacting an awful toll. T,here Is but one restriction to the work done by the commission, and that restriction Is imposed by funds^ The people of Canada have it within their,power' to remove that restriction to a great* extent-to give, not money, but life to those children so .old in suffering. Contributions should' be forwarded to the local committee or to the central committee at 59 St. Peter Street, Montreal, Que. MUTUAL, The Alabama contingent was using the name.3 of Alabama towns for countersigns. On this particular night a sentry challenged an officer. He replied, "A friend with the countersign." Now tho sentry should have said, "Advance and give tho countersign," but he did not. He cocked his gun. The officer, hearing it, nervously exclaimed, "Aren't you going to advance me." "Advance hell!' answered the sentry. "If you don't say 'Birmingham' I'm going to shoot.' A few nights later this same con tingent of Alabamans were using the name of a French town, Armandvil-liers, as the countersign. A. soldier approaching was promptly challenged and answered, "A friend with the countersign." The sentry knew his duty. He called, "Advance and give the countersign." The , officer ap proached and, sheepishly scratching has head, said, "Durned if I ain't fer-got it!" "Sb hev I," said the sentry, "Pass, friend." ATTEMPT TO BLACKMAIL FAMILY OF J. P. MORGAN Lansing, Mich.-Charged "with an attempt to blackmail tho family of J. P. Morgan to the amount of $20,000 by UBe of the tnalhi, J. B. Thorn, fifty years old, janitor'' of a local newspaper building, was t.rrestod by the government authorities here last night/after an investigation extending over a period of,more than fifteen months. Thorn's arrest, according to officers who were engaged on the case, clears up one of the most unique cases of attempted blackmail in'Uielr experience. Accprding to officers, the first of the series of letters, addressed to Mrs. James Nichols, daughter of Mr. Morgan, at her home, -Glen Cove, L.I., was received_by her eighteen months ago. In It the writer purported, to be representing a gang in such close touch with the Morgan family that it- had been able to Inoculate the entire family with a germ which would produce death within three years. The letter went so far as to assert that the death of J. P. Morgan, Sr., had been caused by this Inoculation. The plan., it was said, was to sell to Mrs. Nichols the antidote for the germ. Thorn was unable to furnish $10,-000 bail, and will be taken to De^ troit today by a United State's marshal. GAZETTED TO STAFF London, Sept. 26.-Major W. J.
