JAP ADVERTISERS NOT SLOW
Experts of the Oocldent Might Even
Borrow a Few Ideas From Their
Oriental Colleagues
An advertising man who has re
- turned recently from the orient says
the Japanese merchants and manu-
facturers who have occasion to make
use of printer's ink are not disposed
to limit themselves to dull prosaic
statements concerning the excellence
of their wares Among the entertain-
ing bits that the traveler noticed in
his study of Japanese advertising are
these : -
“Goods dispatched expeditiously as
a cannon ball”
“Parcels done up- with such loving
as a wife bestows upon her husband”
- "ThB print of our books Is clear as
crystal the matter charming as a
Binging girl” ‘
“Customers are treated as politely
as by rival steamship 'companies”
“Our silks and satins are as smooth
as a lady’s cheek and colored like the
“ rainbow” '
It ought to be possible to get ad-
vertisements read in Japan without
scattering them around next to “pure
reading matter” — Dayton News

“We don’t want to tangle ourselves
up In European politics European
politics are As distasteful to us as
European ways” '
The speaker was Jerome S Mc-
Wade the Duluth millionaire
“These European ways!” he went
on “A young count called on a
wealthy friend of mine back In pre-
war days screwed his eyeglass in
his eye and said languidly:
“ ‘Are you — aw — are you going to
settle — aw — anything on your daugh-
ter?’ “My wealthy friend gave a loud
harsh laugh and said:
“ fWell county If she marries you

' Out of the Catalogue
A Franklin family had a catalogue
from a mail-order house in their home
and the children had seen the different
members of the family make their se-
lections from the book nnd send In an
order for them One day one of the
twin Donald Ray three years of age
had 'been unusually naughty and the
mother snid
I "Donald Ray' you' are such a
naughty boy mother wonders where
she got such a bad boy” '
Donald Ray instantly replied: “Out

W ASHINGTON— Ever since the signing of the armistice people have been
wondering what the government was going to do with all the war material
U couldn't use Apparently no one has taken the trouble to find out for rumora
i of the wildest kind have been circu
What prices were quoted on such
miscellaneous things- ns typewriters
desks adding machines soup food
automobile tires and mules can only
be guessed by the tone of the corre-
spondence which Is constantly pouring into the headquarters of the war
department
The war department hntes to disappoint the public but It Is forced to
Insist that there Is not the slightest bit of truth In these' rumors The
department Is a dignified Institution and not a Junk shop It still has so much
work to do that It has plenty of use for all Its motorcars and has no Intention
of selling any It Is also unawnre that any of its airplanes are to be offered
for sale at any price at nll-'-certalnly not at the ridiculous price of $100
The government Is taking every precaution to prevent any disruption to
Industry through the unlondlng of war material During the war many
American Industries more than tripled their production In order to meet the
needs of the army The government cannot now turn Its war surplus back on
the market to the Injury of these Industries It must see that they are
protected
Latest New Thing Is to
WORD comes from Parts that something new will happen there as soon as
peace Is signed This' new thing will be the first aerial duel In history
The principals because of the fact they are members of the French army
aviation corps feel they should not
lessen their country’s aerial force by
even one so long as a state of war ex-'
lsts They Insist however that they
are determined to settle their difficul-
ties In this unique manner as soon as
the emergency ceases to exist
The principals are Corp Leon
Vnudecrane chief editor of the trade
pnper L’Exportateur Francais and
Capt Robert Schrelber chief editor of
a competing paper Echos de Exporta-
tion Schrelber’s father Is a German
During an editorial war Schrelber wrote Vaudecrane a letter which the latter
thought Insult'ng Vaudecrane sent his seconds to Schrelber
“I Intend to use a Nleuport chasing plane of 120 horse power armed with
a Vickers machine gun" Vaudecrane said “Both my secopds — Captain Madon
one of the French aces and Lieutenant Babo— and my adversary’s seconds
have decided that owing to the state of war a settlement Is Impossible until
after peace is signed But I continue In my desire to bring down M Schrelber
putting a few bullets through him and his machine”
Believers la the theory that mankind progresses In circles can find basis
for their arguments In the history of the French duel A few centuries ago
a duel was almost always to the death As it got tamer It began to go out of
style The world greeted with a smile the prewar “bloodless duel f Paris'
An airplane duel certainly gets back to first principles
A E F Gathering Its
AMERICA’S soldier dead In France are to be brought home by the govern-
ment as soon as conditions after peace will permit subject to the wishes of
their families Former Attorney General Gregory Is at work In France pre-
paring a report on legal phases of the
superintend the preparation and shipment of or to accompany bodies back
to the United States Vou will appreciate that there were over 69000 casual-
ties abroad Organizations have been formed overseas known as grave regis-
tration units whose duty (I Is to look after burials to care for the cemeteries
and to preserve identification records” 1
Concerning the work of the graves - registration units lu France the
Stars and Stripes official newspaper of the A E F printed In Paris says:
“The A E F is gathering its dead together that In death they may be as in
life — In serried ranks From frozen dugouts from old ruins from those
hastily Improvised and now sunken openings In the ground that were shell
holes nnd battle graves from wheat fields and river -bank and meadow knoll
from all of the thousands of plnces of isolation and great loneliness the dead
nre being tenderly lifted and borne to take their places in the ordered ranks
of the array” " ' ' ' - ’
Regarding rechecking the casualty lists General Pershing has cabled the
war department: "No accurate estimate of unreported deaths can be given
There are however approximately 5500 missing to be accounted for- all of
whom have been reported to Washington as missing This compares with the
British official list of 161000 missing and the French of 290000” -
Port ’of Missing Ships
GREATEST mystery of the recorded
In ships is the disappearance of
19000 tons she left Rio de Janeiro In
cargo of mnngnnese 57 passengers
20 officers and a crew of 213 March
4 she reported at Barbudoes for bun-
ker coal Since that date there Is ab-
solutely so trace of ship passengers
or crew In spite of persistent and sys-
tematic search by the navy department
the world over
Did her engines break down and
the sea overwhelm her?
Did her cargo shift and she turn
turtle going down like a stone?
Did she break In two either'on a
giant wave with her bow and stern unsupported or with no support undei
her center the wave having “run out from under?” t
Was there an explosion from gas generated by the manganese? "
Was there an explosion of her boilers?
Was she torpedoed by a submarine? Did she strike a mine? Was tber
an explosion of a set nnd timed bomb aboard? " 1
' Was she delivered to the Germans by treachery? ‘
Two facts would seem to answer all of these questions except the last
One is that she was equipped with a powerful wireless $nd no message wa
received from her anywhere The other is that exhaustive search of the
waters found no boat spar timber life-belt or oar As to the last possibility
the Cyclops Is not at Kiel and the German admiralty officially states that It
can throw no light whatever on her fate (
Presumably the U S 8 Cyclops Is in the Port of Missing Ships and her
passengers and crew are lu Davy Jones’ locker

I There is a much closer connection
between the stomach nnd brain than
most people Imagine It Is because of
this close connection that indigestion
belching sour gassy stomach' nnd
other stomach miseries — nil of which
are sure signs of iicid-stonmch — are so
often followed by severe attacks of
blinding splitting headaches
Nervousness sin plessness Irritabil-
ity mental depression melancholin and
many other disorders which affect the
brain can also nearly always be traced
to the same source — nclil-stonmch
So often you near people say “I am
so nervous I think I'll fly to pieces”
or “It seems I never get a good night’s
sleep any more my nerves nre all on
edge” Little do they dream that nciil-
stomnch is the direct cause of their
troubles because very often there nre
no pains in the Stomach at all So you
see you can’t til wavs judge 1111 ncid-
stomnch condition by the way your
8tomnch Itself feels
If you are weak nervous unfit— If
you are not up to your old time form
— If yon lack your accustomed enthu-
siasm energy and pep — make this teRt
and see if it isn’t acid-stomach that Is
holding you back — robbing you of your
health- strength and vigor Get a
big box of EATONIC — the wonderful
modem medicine that so quickly puts
an acid stomach to rights It Is In

A WAR-TIME ILL THAT’S SPREADING
RUNTS SALVE CURES IT I
12 RED in the war trenches of Europe a wave of ordi-
’ LA nary ITCH is spreading over the country This akin
disease history shows has always prevailed following
wars and the concentration of armies ft was common
during the Civil War and following that conflict There
was an epidemic of the Itch after the Spamsh-Amencan
War Now history is repeating itself after the great
European struggle
Returned soldiers hnd those with whom they come in
contact will find a recognized remedy for the Itch in
Hunt’s Salve commonly known as “Hunt’a Itch Cure”
Many a veteran of the late ’AO’s will testify to its merits
If directions are followed HUNT’S SALVE- will
prove a never failing cure for all forms of the Itch and
your druggist will tell you so He sells HUNT’S SALVE
acid Brings Instant relief from indl-'
gestion heartburn sour belching food
repeating bloat and gas and makes
the stomach cool pure sweet and
comfortable
Dentists worn us against the bad
effects of acid mouth pointing out
that the acid eats through the enamel
of the teeth causing them to decay
You can easily imagine then the
ninount of damage excess nehl will
cause to the delicate organization of
the stomach !
Thousands of people are using
EATONIC nnd the results obtained are
so remarkable ns to be almost unbe-
lievable Yet their letters of grati-
tude many of which nre received
daily prove absolutely that EATONIO
does all and even more than we claim
The medical profession too recog-
nizes the great value of this wonder-
ful remedy A learned Michigan doc-
tor wrote recently : “I have had such
wonderful success with EATONIC that
I want every one to know how quick-
ly It will neutralize the acidity of the
stomach (acid-stomach) and the stom-
ach will soon be sweet and normal '
again and the sick man well and
happy once more” '
So he sure to get a big’ box of
EATONIC from your druggist today
If it fails In any way to give you the
kind of satisfaction you want take It
back — he will refund your rdoney He
doesn’t want one penny of your money
unless EATONIC helps you-
