They arrived by the Anchor liner Tus

Tho men united In averring that they
were torpedoed without warnln:;. Thu
submarine was sighted, th Ammcan
said, about tho sumo moment the tor
pedo hit tho ship on the port side. No
body wa Injured. After all hands had
abundoncd the ship they noted tho sub

marine disappeared they 'owed back to

not be saved. A lirltliih trawler tool:
them to Ilrlstol, whence they were neiu

There Is, however, no proof that Ger

It Is learned that this Government

When Schinasi Brothers came from Egypt,
a quarter of a century ago, to introduce good
Turkish tobacco to America, they had one idea.
To show real Americans how good a real
cigarette could be.
They made Naturals the only good
Turkish-tobacco cigarette manufactured in
this country at that time.
They made their cigarettes so good that
Naturals turned the tobacco-taste of America
to Turkish tobacco.
Naturals were made good made good
still make good.
