1 " ' Salvation Army Finds Good Use
for Furniture Obtained in
Raids by the Police.
Denver, May 17, 1920. A new
method of disposing of gambling ap
paratus siczed by police in raids on
gambling houses throughout the city
was put into effect Monday by Chief
of Police Armstrong when he turned
over to Captain Thomas Wesley
Pipes, commandant of the Salvation
Army's Industrial Home at 1122 Lar
imer street, a number of chairs nnd
tables. These chairs and tables would
othcrwiso havo been destroyed. Some
of them will bo used in the reading
room at thu Salvation Army Home
Service building on Curtis street and
others, after being repaired at tho
Industrial Homo will be given to poor
people who continually throng tho
store room of the Industrial Homo
looking for articles of clothing and ''
furniture that are sold at nominal
Chief of police Armstrong cstim-'
ated that many thousands of dollars '
had changed hands over the games!
which are played on the tables. Now I
instead of frenzied gamblers beseech-'
ing "little dick" to show up on the
face of the "bones" or of calling
anxiously on the ivory cubes to "bring
baby a pair of shoes," careworn
mothers and hard working fathers
will gather round the tables or sol
diers on leave and farm laborers in
the city for a spell will read or write
their letters spread out on the
polished oak tops.
Tho furniture was seized in a series
of raids last week when 125 men were
arrested charged with gambling.
i Lieutenant Colonel John YV. Cousins
local officer of the Salvation Army,
i immediately on learning of the raids
and seizure of the furniture asked
Chief Armstrong to let him have the
chairs and tables instead of destroy
ing them, as has been thu custom
following previous raids.
' Somo of the tables had been smah-
etl when the police had to batter down
! the doors guarding the gambling
I houses. These, however will be put
' up in scrviccablo condition by tho
carpenters nnd joiners who live at
the Industrial Home.
Supplying furniture to poor fam
1 ilies free of charge or at a prico
which just covers the cost of repairs
; is only one of tho many methods the
i , Salvation Army uses in following up
its 1920 slogan of "To the Rescue;
Now Let Us Help Our Own." Ex-
-tension of this service is one of the
i main features of the home service
1 v . program of the Salvation Army.

LEIGH-WILKINSON REALTY CO.
SAYS IT KEPT HIM
ON THE PAYROLL
G. C. James Was Remarkably
Built Up After Taking
"Nothing kept mq on the payroll
of the Illinois Meter Co. but Tanlac,
for I had already mnde arrangements
to give up my position when I began
taking it, said G. C James, who lives
at 1419 Franklin Ave., Springfield, 111.
"I had suffered from rheumatism
and stomach troublu for fifteen years,
and got in such bad shape I could
hardly get nbout,"he continued. "The
rheumatism was especially bad in my
legs and sometimes my left leg would
swell to twice its formal size. My
kidneys were also in such a condition
I could seldom get a good night's rest
and as far as eating, was concerned,
well, before I began taking Tanlac
I had not enjoyed a meal in years. I
suffered so from indigestion, and had
such dizzy spells I would have to lie
I down. T became so weak I often gave
(out completely while at work and
.they would hnve to take me home in
, n car so it is a wonder I held up at all.
"One day one of the men I work
J with suggested that I try Tanlac and
as long ns I live I will praise tho
day I bought it for I haveji't n trace
of rheumatism now and I eat every
thing set before me without any bad
after effects. The dizzy spells are
things of the past and my kidneys
never bother me nny more; every
1 night I sleep like a log and weigh
1 just thirty-eight pounds more than I
1 did when I begnn taking Tanlac. I
feel twenty years younger and am in
i perfect health, and there is nothing in
' the world I would take for the good
Tanlac has done me."
i Tanlac is sold in Cedar City by the
i Cedar City Drug Co. and in Pnrowan
i by the Pnrowan Drug Co.
THREE YEARS ON ONE

Three jears on United Stntes
Roynl Cord tires is a record reported
by Frank McComb of Stafford, Kan
sas. "During this time," says Mr. Mc
Comb, "I have made two trips to Col

und taking in all the mountain drives
around there nnd Denver. I then
went to Cheyenne and back over the
Lincoln Highway through Nebraska,
Last fall I drove to Snn Francisco,
going out by way of tho Santa Fe

very rough und rocky."

Old Trees On Ruins. I
"Trees grown to Inrge dimensions on ;
top of these ruins show thnt they are'
many centuries old, but who tho peo
ple were who built them, nobody has
ventured a guess. They seem to. have
been a people of fixed habits and lived ,
by agriculture nnd the chase. Corn nnd '
beans nnd the stems of pumpkins nrc
found in the ruins.
"The people of San Juan of the
present day seem to be prosperous nnd
happy. The story of tho Snn Juan.
colony, plnuted forty yenrs ago, is one
written in the blood of humnn hearts.
It has been one unceasing fight with,
I that great outlaw river, which refused ,
land still refuses to be subdued in'

great monster strikes back, and n.
whole series of fnrms begin their mi-

'Dry land farming is proving n great
success. Cattle and sheep have mnde
most of tho San Junn people wealthy.
People Wide Awake.
I "Mentally nnd spiritunlly, tho inhnb-.
itants of this outpost of civilization!
'seem to be wide awake. Their chief.
difficulty seems to bo a lack of means
of transportation. Snn Junn county
could support a population thrco or
four times ns great as it now has if
nil its resources were developed. One
day it may become the granary of
"Finally I would like to recommend
the people of Snn Junn for their hos
pitality, which is extended with n
hearty good will to visitors who come
to sec their country. '
"The elder colonists came mostly1
from my native county in southern
Utah. Forty years ago as a little boy '
I saw those brave young men nnd
women with the blood of youth uponj
their cheeks and the vim and vigor of
early years unabated ns they wentj
forth in response to a call to colonize,
thnt hard, uninviting country. After
forty years I saw them again, withi
forehends etched by the process of the!
ever pnssing years and limbs not quite
so lithe or supple as of yoro. A num
ber sleep the last long sleep on tho
hill which overlooks the scenes of their
heroic struggle, but the rest arc still I
undaunted nnd ready for whatever
duty it takes to mnko good citizens."

DOES ADVERTISING PAY?
Relatives of Mrs. Nan Brown Waldo
of Kemmerer, Wyoming, have been in
formed of the arrival of a pair of
tw'n girls nt tho Waldo domicile, the
letter being accompanied by the fol
lowing clipping from their local paper,
In tho fall of '81, a party of
archaeologists, delving into the
mysteries of ancient Egypt, came
across an inscription carved in
hieroglyphics on one of the pyra
mids, which for a long time tested
the ingenuity of these wise men.
Finnlly the cryptic sentence was
deciphered and translated into our
latter-day vernaculnr nnd it read:
"It pnys to advertise."
Since that time this trite and
commonplnce phrase hns become
so generally accepted as Gospel
truth that argument on behnlf of
advertising id supererogatory, un
necessary and superfluous.
True, Tho Republican hns from
time to time, with becoming mod
esty, cnlled attention to some con
spicuous instances of quick nnd
profitable results attained through
the use of our advertising col
umns, such reference being wholly
redundnnt nnd pleonastic.
I Here is a case in point that
I deserves special mention: Last
Friday Manager Waldo of tho Col
I umbia Sweet Shop, a firm believer
1 in publicity, inserted a small "ad"
in these columns, making known
the fact that ho wanted "two girls
to work ns soda dispenser." The
answer to his "nil" was prompt
and startling, for on the follow
ing Sunday night, Mrs. Waldo pre
sented him with twin girls. Moth
er and dnughters are doing splen
didly. Mr. Waldo was heard to remark
that it was a good thing ho hndn't
advertised for hay hands.
I am locating in Cedar City as my
permnnent place of business and will
lie in Cedar about Juno 1st, to follow
my lino of work as export paper
hanger and interior decorator. I spe
cialize on interior house work and so
licit a shnre of your best work and
hnve the best reference to bo found to
support mo in my claim.
Watch for my regular advertise
ment to follow.
