neighbor kingdom which I cannot de
spise, and 1 scorn to do murder
and theft against those who have
become thrifty by their own toil I
revolt from the -presence of blood,
cruelty and dishonor and shall remain
among the birds, the flowers and
trees that protect with their songs
and fragrance the Tsanctity of my
home."
He turned to enter his house but
the messenger rudely clutched his
arm. "Fool," said he, "have you reli
gion?" "Yes," said the giant. "Have
you patriotism?" And the reply came
"I have." "Well, then, our king calls
upon you in the name of religion and
patriotism to go with me and DO the
things which I have said" AND THE

BILLION DOLLARS EACH YEAR IS
OPPORTUNITY OVER EQUATOR
Washington. D. C Aug. 17. South
America is a billion dollar market It
has spent this sum each year in im
ports. Of this, the, United States has
in the past had but 15 per cent
The war furnishes the opportunity
for most of the other 85 per cent
Ships and salesmanship are needed
to place the American manufactur
ers in Argentina, Brazil and Chile and
bring back cargoes of gold.
This is the declaration of the Pan
American union which has just made
a trade survey of the southern con
tinent It declares that the time has
come in which this country can get
and hold that vast trade which has
before gone to Europe.
. Luxuries and novelties appeal to
the people of those countries. Sales
men who speak Spanish are needed
and the American advertising in the
form of demonstrations.
Things in fancy packages are most
likely to catch the eye of the south
ern buyer.
There is a call for ready-made
clothes, for furniture, for kitchen
utensils, for machinery, for automo
biles, for breakfast foods.
One salesman selling 20 small arti
cles running from collar buttons to
postal cards has made $18,000 a year
in peace time. With Europe shut off,
opportunity beckons to the enterpris
ing. Get busy, is the advice of the union
to American business men. There is
gold down there below the equator,
burning holes in pockets and appe
tites and fancies to be pleased.
And it all means profit and bigger
industries up here.

MAY BE SHY ON MAKINS! -
Unless those Austrians and French
men quit fighting and go back to
work, there will be a famine of "mak
ins" as the cigaret smoker calls those
thin papers which he rolls into pills.
There are enough in America for a
few months. The supply comes from
Austria, which makes a specialty of
brown or wheat straw papers. The
French furnish the world with rice
and silk tipped papers.
