There exists now a new, compelling
reason for buying Goodyear tires. It re-
sults from War conditions.
These leading tires—built of extra-fine
rubber, in the same way as always—are
selling today at June prices.
You will find today a very wide difference
between most tire prices and Goodyeats.
Due to Quick Action
Farly in August—when war began,—tTie
world's rubber markets seemed closed to us.
Rubber prices doubled almost over night.
Men could see no way to pay for rubber
abroad, and no way to bring it in. We, like
others—in that panic—were forced to higher
prices. But we have since gone back to prices
we charged before the war, and this id how
we did it:
We had men in London and Singapore when
the war broke out. The larger part of the
world's rubber supply comes through there.
We cabled them to buy up the pick of the rub-
ber. They bought—before the advance—1,500,-
000 pounds of the finest rubber there.
Nearly all this is now on the way to us.
And it means practically all of the extra-grade
rubber obtainable abroad.
Today we have our own men in Colombo,
Singapore and I'ara. Those are the world's
chief sources of rubber. So we are pretty well
assured of a constant supply, and our pick of
the best that's produced.
We were first on the ground. We were quick-
est in action. As a result, we shall soon have in
storage an almost record supply of this extra
grade of rubber.
And we paid about June prices.
Now Inferior Grades Cost Double
About tho only crude rubber available now
for many makers is inferior. In ordinary times,
the best tire makers refuse it. Much of it had
been rejected. But that "off rubber" now sella
for much more than we paid for the best.
The results are these:
Tire prices in general are far in advance of
Goodyears. And many tire makers, short of
supplies, will bo forced to use secoud-grada
Be Careful Now
In Qoodvears we pledge you the same grade
tire as always. And that grade won for Good-
years the top place in Tiredom—the largest sale
in the world.
And, for the time being, our prices are the
same as before the war. We shall try to keep
We accept no excessive orders, but dealers
will be kept supplied. And we charge them,
until further notice, only ante-bellum prices.
That means that Goodyears—the best
tires built—are selling way below other tires.

flict in Europe.
MAY FIGHT ONE ANOTHER
Each Invention Now Is Prepared to
Pull the Other's Sting, but Their
Actual Value Is Yet to
Every modern war lias been fought
Avith new weapons, and for the last
century there have been countless in-
ventions for the carrying on of war-
fare in a particularly destructive man-
lier, with the philanthropic intent that
■war was fast becoming so horrible and
terrible thta it must soon pass away
from the face of the earth, says the
Philadelphia Public Ledger.
But it happened that as soon as a
particularly horrible contrivance was
invented and introduced into armies
and navies Inventors immediately
busied themselves by offsetting and
discounting its probable effect. Con-
sequently war not only has not passed
away, but we still have it with us.
Thus it is that each big war, after lin-
ing heralded as the works's last con-
flagration, is found upon examination
to be false, and the end of war is uot
Trying Out Inventions.
In the present war in Europe there
are being tried under the conditions of
actual hostilities many improvements
and inventions that previously have
been tried only under laboratory con-
ditions. Their real worth will only be
discovered at the close of the conflict.
No army or navy engaged in the
present conflict in Europe but what is
possessed of nearly all of the modern
improvements made since 1870. The
WASTE LAND MADE FERTILF
Remarkable Results Have Followec
Experiments Only Recently
Undertaken in Egypt.
As an indication of the ultimate out
come in the great delta of Egypt
where 1,500,000 acres of wash salt
land awaits development, toward the
end of 1912 about 800 acres of absolute-
ly waste land at Biala were taken in
hand. The land was so heavily im-
pregnated with salt that for ages noth-
subinarine, which was a dream in
1865, is owned by the navy of the
smallest power. It is true that single
submarines are not expected to ac-
complish much in a real struggle, so
the larger navies of the great powers
have fleets of submarines. The aero-
plane and the dirigible balloon are to
be found in the possession of all arm-
ies in Europe today, yet they, too, are
only expected to be of real service
when they are possessed in large num-

the wasps of modern warfare. Like

able, and may be easily crushed and
Aeroplane and Wireless.
In the recent smaller wars, aero-
planes have been used to a limited ex-
tent, and this use has been so much
limited that their real efficiency is ex-
pected to be finally determined by
the present war.
It is much the same with the wire-
less telegraph. While it was used in
the Russo-Japanese war of ten years
ago, the apparatus was still rudimen-
tary, and the installations too few,
whiie the range of the apparatus was
too limited to show the greatest effi-
ciency. In the intervening decade, how-
ever, great advance has been made in
wireless. It is now possible and, in-
deed, is a custom every day, to send
and receive messages from a distance
of more than 5,000 miles. This, then,
is a new and important factor in naval
operations, as w as seen by the censor-
ship put over the great sending sta-
tions on this side of the Atlantic by
the United States authortiies.
Wireless has also been successfully
attached to aeroplanes.
The submarine was in existence in
1904, but it was a very different sea
wasp to that which England, France
and Germany are using today. Yet Its
real value is yet to be determined, and
it is expected that this demonstration
will come during the present conflict.
Rapid Increase of Submarines.
At the time of the Spanish-American
war there were only five submarines
in all the navies of the world.
The latest edition of Brassey's Naval
Annual for this year gives the number
of submarines in the various navies,
and shows what interest Is being
taken in the wasp of the sea. Great
Britain has 76 built, and is building 20
more; Germany, who only began build-
'ng had grown on it. A scientific sys-
>m of irrigation and drainage was laid
>ut, under direction of Lord Kitch-
ner, at a cost of $50 an acre, and it
>as then handed over to the fellaheen
n live-acre plots for cultivation. Last
year the land was washed, and a crop
of rice was grown, giving a satisfac-
tory yield. After the rice c.-op the
salt distribution was measured, and
the percentage was considerably re-
duced. To the great astonishment of
the fellaheen cultivators, a permanent
result had been achieved in one year,
ing a few years ago, already has 27,
70 and is building 12 more; France has j
70 and is building 23 additional onces;
Russia has 25, and is building IS;
while the United States has 29, and is
building 21; Austria has 18, and has
four under construction, whilo Italy
owns 18, and is building two. Yet the
submarine is still an unknown quan-
tity in warfare.
Submarine in War.
Many of the early submarines ara
small and probably of little efficiency, I
and France has numerous types about
which little is known by the outside j
world. The German submarines are j
said to be built along the Holland
lines, while the Russian submarines
are said to follow one or more of the
The submarine, from a romantic
viewpoint, should be a great factor in
deciding a naval engagement, but the
fact remains that up to the present
time it has done nothing to prove its
value. It was believed that the moral
effect of the submarine would be al-
most as important as its physical ef-
fect upon an enemy's warship, but
this belief has not been justified up to
the present moment.
There were notions that there would
be terrific lights under the seas by
submarine meeting submarine and de-
stroying each other. But it has been
found that when submerged the sub-
marine is as blind as the traditional
bat. Its crew cannot see any object
under water, and is compelled to re-
sort to the use of the periscope, w hich
emerges unostentatiously above the
water, in order to see its own course.
It is known that the periscope is
the eye of the submarine, and natural-
ly attention has been paid to the best
way of destroying this vital part ol
The designers of the submarine did
not count upon it being seen. It was
believed that it would go upon its way,
dealing death without observation, al-
though its periscope does make a
slight wake on the water, and when
submerged there are telltale bubbles.
But it has been discovered that from
a certain height an observer may trace
the course of a submerged submarine
with as great accuracy as if it was
running on the surface. The dirigible
balloon and the aeroplane now can
ferret out the sneaking submarine, and
they both are supposed to be armed to
destroy the warship that moves like a
which under the ordinary system pre-
vailing in the country would have
taken thre or four years to accom-
plish. Cotton is now, therefore, being
satisfactorily grown on a fair propor-
tion of this area, and It is expected
that it will bring from $75 to $100 an
