Tea Long Used In China.
Tea was used and cultivated In
China us fur back ns the third cen-
tury A D., but It was not until the
twelfth century that It became known
In Japan, when an abbot of a Bud
hist monastry learned about it
China where Its virtues were a ready
well known. Obtaining seed, he planted
some near Kyoto. In later years some
of this was transplanted near Shl-
Euoka, which vicinity has ever since
been the center of the tea Industry of
Japan. It was not until about the
seventeenth century that tea became
generally known In Europe, when t
was exploited by the Dutch East In-
dian company as a new article of com-
merce. The llrst tea sold In England

Washington, Feb. 21.—On the battle
fronts no big engagements have been
fought, although in Palestine the Brit-
ish operating against the Turks again
have pushed forward their lines on a
front of fifteen miles, east of Jerusa-
lem, and secured much desired posi-
tions. The advance was to a depth of
two miles. On the fronts In France,
Belgium and Italy only bombardments
and minor infantry operations are in
Naval Aircraft Busy.
London, Feb. 21.-Naval airmen con-
tinue to bombard docks, airdromes
and other targets In Belgium and have
accounted for four German airplanes,
the admiralty announced in a state-

"Naval aircraft dropped many tons
of explosives Monday night on St
Denis Westrem and the docks of
Bruges and drove down an enemy ma-
chine. Large quantities of explosives
were dropped Tuesday on the air-
drome at Aertrycke and the dump at
Fngel with good results. An enemy
seaplane was brought down at sea,
another was downed within the Brit-
ish lines and a third was sent down
out of control."

TOBACCO TO MAKE IT BETTER
For a good many years The American
Tobacco Company have been conducting a
series of experiments paving as their
object the improvement of smoking
And it is interesting to know that one
of the greatest of their discoveries was one
of the simplest, and that was, that cooking
or toasting tobacco improved it in every
way, just as cooking nfcst foods improves
They took a real Burley tobacco, grown
In this country; toasted it as you would
toast bread; moistened it to replace the
natural moisture driven off by toasting;
made it into cigarettes, called them
"LUCKY STRIKE, the toasted cigarette,
and offered them to the public.
The result has been the greatest demand
ever created for any tobacco product in a
similar length of time.
The change produced by toasting is not
on* most wholesome, but the flavor is
greatly improved, just as cooking mprov
meat, for example.—Adv.
