WOOLWORTH STORES GO
ON JUST THE SAME
nari of Famous Founder Will Not
Effect Policy or Methods Says
: 1 .''.!
The sudden death of "Fran'-i; W
"Woolworth in New York last week
will in no wise effect the policy or
merchandising methods of the F. VV
Woolworth 5 and 10 Cent Stores, of
which there are now 1,038 in this coun
try according to W. E. Cole, manager
of the Woolworth Store in this city.
Mr. Cole points out that while the
great Woolworth organization was built
upon the genius, enterprise and per
sonality of its great founder, Mr. Wool-
worth was far seeing and, anticipating
the day when he would no longer live
to direct the business, he drew into
his organization many partners who
understood his methods and are quali
fied to carry on the unique enterprise.
His brother C. S. Woolworth probably
will succeed him as president of the
F. W. Woolworth Co. C. S. Wool
worth has been with the organization
The death of Frank W. Woolworth
recalls a comparatively recent notable
incident in his colossal career. "The
war had so inflated the prices of, all
merchandise that it looked for a time
as if the 5 and 10 cent store was to be
a thing of the past. Many 5 and 10
cent stores had changed their fronts
and run their prices up-to 15 and even
as high as 25 cents. There was a
meeting of 5 and 10 cent store owners
in Xew York about a year ago to dis
cuss the situation. Mr. Woolworth
was asked what he intended doing?
He replied: "I have, made my money
on 5 and 10 cent goods; I have faith
and, if I must lose, I will lose, on 5
and 10 cent merchandise." He had Just
$40,000,000 to lose, having made that
much in his 5 and 10 cent stores in 40
years. There is no recora or nis navms
lost and every Woolworth store carried
on thru the war, maintaining 5 and
10 cent prices.
And YET Chesterfields are mil J I
Don't lose that little word "YET." For other ciga
rettes may satisfy and still other cigarettes may be
mild. But Chesterfields are the only cigarettes that
satisfy and YET are mild. . ..
Chesterfields are the only mild cigarettes that let
you know you are smoking that hit the "smoke-spot"
. It's the blend a blend of the finest Turkish and
Domestic tobaccos. And' the blend can't be copied.
So if you want "mild" plus "satisfy," you want
Chesterfields and you want them today.

When the President decides to call
the Sixty-sixth Congress in extra ses
sion probably in May the Republi
cans will roll smoothly into power in
the lower House with Congressman
Gillett of Massachusetts in the Speak
er's chair, Congressman Mondejl of
Wyoming as floor leader of the major
ity party and Congressman Kahn of
California as chairman of the House
Committee on Military Affairs. By tha?
time the last-named will have return
ed from France where he has been con
ferring with Foch, Haig and Pershing
as to the sort of compulsory military
traininer we ought to have. If he has
time he will make a number of speech
es throughout the country in which he
will endeavor adroitly to put himself
at the head of the anti-militarist senti
ment in the United States by (a)
roundly denouncing the General Staff
for its crimes and misdemeanors (with
oblique raps at Secretary Baker) and
(b) by denouncing the administration's
proposal to h.iva a temporary standing
army of 509.G00 officers and men. Kahn
will declare against a "large standing

THE REASON WHY
IDOffT NEGLECT A
Is it not wise to spend lavishly to
save in the end? Is it not best to pour
out money like water to save human
lives? Haste always makes waste,
but haste gets things done before it
is too late.. When we needed men and
ammunition,, we needed them at once.
A million men blocking the German
drive toward Paris did more in less
time than two million probably could
have done if the capital of France had
fallen. And so if any one thinks that
the United States did not receive full
value for every dollar raised by its
Liberty Loans let him ask himself why
and then buy Victory Liberty Bonds
to his limit. -
Take for example this instance:
Your little girPis standing in front of
the parlor fire. Suddenly her clothes
blaze up. Will you run up to the attic
and hunt out an old quilt or carpet
to smother the flames or will you
seize the first thing you can reach,
perhaps the most beautiful Oriental
rug you possess, and wrap around the
child? In the First case you would be
saving the rug, but running a large
chance of losing something infinitely
more precious, the little girl. . In the
second, by using all the means avail
able at the crucial moment, you would
save far more.
Haste always makes waste but
haste in this case would, put out the
I fire before anything besides the. child's
dress was burned,

haps, have saved sixty-seven cents on .
