In this issue of The Sun appears a
large advertisement of the Bells Dry
Goods Company of Bells. The owner
of the store, W. S. Roddy Jr., said
that he wanted to try Sun advertis-
ing, as a number of people in the
Bells community were subscribers to
The Sun. He said that he often
heard his customers refer to adver-
tisements they read in The Sun, and
that he had been convinced that The
Sun was a good advertising medium.
Mr. Roddy has been in business in
Bells for more than twenty years. He
is a successful merchant and has
made money. His father, W. S. Rod-
dy Sr., was one of the pioneer mer-
chants of Bells, and operated a dry
goods store there for many years.
When Bells had a newspaper Mr.
Roddy was a consistent user of its
columns. He seldom ever let an issue
go to press without having an adver-
tisement for his store in it. Mr.
Roddy also said that a town did not
know how to appreciate a newspa-
per until after it was gone. “I would
be willing to make a monthly contri-
bution, if it was necessary, in addi-
tion to buying advertising space to
have a newspaper in Bells,” Mr. Rod-
dy said. Years ago Bells had a good

city physicians.—Dallas News.
Through courtesy of Dr. E. Loew-
enstein, noted pathologist of Vienna,
Dallas will soon have opportunity to
test out the merits of a new method
of immunization against diphtheria.
At the request of Dr. J. W. Bass, Di-
rector of Public Health, the Austrian
clinician has sent to Dallas 300 tubes
of the new treatment, with instruc-
tions for its use, and a report of the
results obtained in Vienna and other
European cities. More than 300,000
children in Austria and Germany
have been treated with marked suc-

been used in the United States only

the need of a purgative, I take
Black-Draught,” says Mr. Edgar
Gamble, of 114 Fowler Ave., Hop-
kinsville, Ky. “It is easy to take
and quick to relieve. I used to have
dull headaches. My eyes would burn
and when I would stoop over I seemed
to turn blind. This isn’t much of a
good feeling when one has to work,
and I have had to work hard in my
time, being a timber man. This work
takes me from home a good deal and
one never likes to get sick, especially
away from home. I found the best
way to avoid this was to take an
occasional dose of Black-Draught,
and keep the system cleansed.” fha-b

a newspaper has increased tenfold,

have lost their newspapers, Bells be-

its newspaper, that’s when it is
missed and not before.
MAKES YOH LOSE
Mrs. Ethel Smith of Norwich,
Conn., writes; “I lost 16 lbs, with
my first bottle of Kruschen. Being
on night duty it was hard to sleep
■days but now since I am taking
Kruschen I sleep plenty, eat as usual
and lose fat, too.”
To take off fat—take one half tea-
spoonful of Kruschen Salts in a glass
of hot water in the morning before
breakfast—one bottle that lasts 4
weeks costs but a few cents—get it
at any drugstore in America. If this
first bottle fails to convince you this
is the SAFE and harmless way to lose
fat—your money gladly returned.

chen because you must reduce safely.

The majority of these troops are
equipped with modern rifles and ma-
chine guns. Their artillery leaves
much to be desired, but they all pos-
sess six-inch trench mortars which
they can handle very efficiently. The
air force is inadequate and the troops
are not equipped with chemical ap-
The training in some of the Chi-
nese armies is intensive. Foreign in-
structors, mainly German officers of
the former imperial army who drifted
into China after the World War were
hired by Northern warlords such as
Chang Tso Lin, and the Cantonese.
These officers take the military
business much more seriously than
any Chinese General has ever taken
it, and have succeeded in forming ex-
cellent units in China.
China is an eminently pacific coun-
try. Hence soldiering is considered
one of the lowest occupations in that
country where the intellectual and
the scholar are on top of the social
scale, followed by the farmer who
does an actually constructive work.
The merchant who makes profits by
his wits comes third and the soldier is
at the bottom of the scale.
