The Secret of
We Have Them!
The secret of keeping well
is to consult your physician
frequently, especially when
you feel tired and “run
down." If taken in time, ser-
ious illness can usually be
averted and you will be many
dollars ahead. When your
doctor suggests that you bring
your prescription to us, he
does so because he knows it
will be accurately filled with
purest, freshest ingredients.

“In-law trouble” has separated
Tennessee's famed child bride, 9-
year-old Eunice Winstead Johns,
and her 26-year-old husband, Char-
i “Eunice refused to live in the
house with her pappy-ln-law," the
child's grandmother revealed last
“Charlie wouldn't build her a ca-
bin or rent one somewhere,” she
,pdded. "He wouldn’t leave his folks.”
Eunice, it was learned, walked
out of the mountain cabin of her
husband’s parents and returned to
the home of her parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Louis Winstead.
4 Charlie, the child-bride's grand-
mother, Mrs. Lucy Winstead, said
has “lit out" for Illinois.

which startled the nation and re-
sulted in hasty legislation in Ten-
nessee designed to prevent such
unions, Nick Johns, Charlie’s fath-

they go hunting.”

American vessels, except warships,
have been banned from calling at
Shanghai and summer White House
officials at Hyde Park. N. Y„ said
the United States government would
rely on existing naval vessels in
the Far East to evacuate Americans
still in danger zones.
Officials in Washington indicated
American merchant vessels will be
allowed soon to resume calls at

Japanese reinforcements landed in
Yangtzepoo, at the eastern end of
the International Settlement, and
northwest of there at Liuho, up the
Yangtze River from Woosung.
Eight Japanese steamers laden
with reinforcements, tanks and ar-
tillery arrived outside of Woosung.
The Japanese kept up a devastat-
ing fire last night against Chapel
and the neighboring Kiangwan sec-
tor to the north.
Chinese showed no evidences of
withdrawal, however, and retaliated
with an artillery bombardment of
The Woosung sector, 12 miles

WASHINGTON, Sept. 2.—A Japa-
nese warning that foreign ships
must steer clear of the Japanese
naval concentrations that clog the
route from Shanghai to the sea add-
ed new complications to an already
worrisome situation last night.
Directly involved was the problem
of evacuating safely American refu-
gees from the Chinese metropolis, a
problem that has given officials here
much concern since the bombing on
Monday of the American liner, the
President Hoover, by a Chinese war-
While American vessels were
promptly ordered to avoid the
Shanghai danger zone,-- indications
were the order would be quickly lift-
ed so the evacuation work might
continue and there might be no de-
parture from the* standing policy
of insisting upon the maintenance of

A 40-year acquaintance with politics
apparently ended for Mrs. Joseph
T. Robinson, shown here in a new
photo, with the death of her hus-
band, senator from Arkansas. Then
came a chance to return to cam-

enter the special election as a can-
didate to succeed her husband. Ar-
kansas now has one woman sena-
tor, Mrs. Hattie Caraway, who suc-
ceeded her husband in 1931.
The girl was trapped in the blaz-

Others stood by for orders close

Mediterranean fleet, available for
instant duty, was conducting man- ]
euvers off the Dalmatian and Ital-
ian coasts. A cruiser squadrom was
at anchor off Venice.
Almost at the same' time the |
Havock was attacked, Spanish in-1
surgent planes bombed the Greek
freighter Tsepo, about 20 miles north
of Ba.celona. The Tsepo, carrying a
munitions cargo to the Spanish gov- j
ernment. was beached escaping
from the attack. Her helmsman was
killed and another seaman wounded.
Among a large number of mer-
chant vessels attacked on the open
Mediterranean, there have been at
least 25 ships of British registry or
operated by British interests.
The attack on the Havock was the
eighteenth on a foreign vessel since
French quarters in London ex-
pressed hope that the attack on the
Havock would incite Britain to ac-
tion against sea raids in the Medit-
erranean. They said "exchanges
with this in view are proceeding be-
tween London and Paris."
