In PHrllament this afternoon, the ma
jority of well-Informed parliamentary
writers agreed todav. Only a few
papers cling to tho belief that tho cabi
net will nnnoiinco a radical change ot
Tho not thrown about Ocrmnny by
tho existing regulations may bo tight
ened In some respects. Hut it la the
genwal belief of the London newspapers
that tho cabinet has decided against
anv revolutionary change In policy.
The storm of protest raised In tho
t'nlted States and In Sweden, somo ot
the papers broadly hinted, has cooled
the ardor of advocates of tho blockade,
If it has not had its effect upon the
government. The newspapers gave
prominent dlsplav to tho warlike utter

Klksdag speech yesterday, and the
Daily Telegraph and tho Dallv .News
cautioned 'tho government against any
action likely to involve Great Urltaln

Three Cigarette Faults
to Avoid
First, avoid cigarettes that
don't just suit your own taste.
Second, avoid those that
bother your throat or tongue.
Third, avoid those that
make you "feel mean' after
smoking all you want.
If Fatimas, for instance,
seem to you to be guilty on
any one of those three counts,
we say, avoid Fatimas.
We mean what we say
for, when it comes to the fasro,
Fatimas can't possibly please
everybody no cigarette can
do that. But Fatimas do please
more men than any other ciga
rette costing over 5 c.
That's one reason why you
should rry them.
Another reason is because
they are so SENSIBLE so
free from any after-feeling."
