When You Know What
Is Best, Ask For It
If a man has anything he is proud of, he gives it a name whether it be a
baby or a pair of boots. And the more he is proud of it, the more he talks
Nameless things are seldom good and never reliable. If you want to
cut down your cost of living the very best way to do it is to learn to ask
only for standard articles.
When you know the name of a good maker of shirts or shoes, of furni
ture or pianos, of hardware or underwear, fix that name definitely in your
mind and remember it when you come to buy.
Do not allow strange things to come into your home any more than you
would allow strange people.
The brand and the trademark and the copyright arc the letters of •
introduction from the maker to you. In this way he vouches for their
respectability and guarantees their good behavior in your home.
There is a name for every good product that is made. And most of these
names are known by every man and woman in America. Manufacturers have
spent hundreds of millions of dollars to standardize these names in your
mind. From the lining of a dress to laundry soap; from a cleanser to a
baking powder; from a suit of clothes to a kit of tools; you could call every
standard article on the market by name if you w T ould only remember to do
so when you come to buy.
It is through your farelessness that lies and adulterations creep in. The
standard is set by good men, but the standard is only maintained by you.
It is time for you to forget the generic name of every article, and re
member only the standard name of its quality.
In the advertising news of this paper today you will find many of these
standard names and brands of quality. This article is written for the sole
purpose of reminding you to use those names. It is only fair that you
should do as much for these good manufacturers as they are doing for you.
It is only right that you should help in this great standardization of good
products that is going on throughout America.
Begin now to ask by name for everything you buy. And you will find
your satisfaction growing greater day by day and your optimism extending '
even down to your pocket book.

WHO SAILED MAY
BE AMONG LOST
Most of the Rescued Are Women and
Children; White Star Officials Admit
Horrible Loss of Life
Carpathia Taking Survivors to New York; Frantic
Relatives of Passengers Beseech Company
Offices for Tidings of Hope
BOSTON, April IS — A wireless message picked up
late tonight relayed from the Olympic says that the Gar
pathia is on its way to New York with 866 passengers
from the steamer Titanic aboard. They are mostly
women and children, the message said, and it concluded:
"Grave fears are felt for the safety of the balance of
the passengers and crew."
NEW YORK, April 15.—While the fate of the majority of the 2,100 persons on
board the mammoth White Star liner Titanic, which sank early yesterday in the
Newfoundland banks after a collision with an iceberg still remains in doubt, and
it is feared that about 1,300 persons were lost, a note of good cheer came from the ocean
waves by wireless between 1 and 2 o'clock this morning.
It was a wireless message from the White Star liner Olympic, one of the vessels hover
ing near the scene of the disaster, flashing the news that 866 of the Titanic's passengers,
mostly women and children, were being brought to port by the Gunarder Carpathia.
Other messages later brought confirmatory tidings.
First reports were that the Carpathia had saved only 675 persons. The new figues
reduced the list of those for whose fate fear was felt by nearly 200, and if, as seems
probable, practically all those saved were pasengers, it would appear that all but approxi
mately 450 of the vessel's passengers and 860 men composing the crew are accounted for.
A partial list of the survivors received from the Carpathia include the names of many
women of prominence who were on the steamer.
After the first desperate calls of the Titanic for help had been sent flying through
space and brought steamers for hundreds of miles around speeding to the scene, what seems
to have been an impenetrable wall of silence was raised between here and the steamer.
The giant liner* so far as last nights advices appear, went to its fate without so much as
a whisper of what must have been the scenes of a terrible tragedy enacted on her decks.
In the lack of evert a line from a survivor, imagination pauses before even trying to
conjecture what passed as the inevitable became known, and it was seen that of the more
than 2,000 human lives with which the liner was freighted, there could be hope of saving,
as it appears, far less than half.
Other than the news last evening that 866 persons, mostly women and children, had
been rescued from the liner's boats by the Cunarder Carpathia, several hours passed with
out a word as to the fate of the rest of those on board at the time of the fateful crash.
Along the entire Atlantic coast wireless instruments
were attuned to catch from any source the slightest whisper
of hope that possibly one of the many steamships which
rushed to the assistance of the Titanic bore other survivors.
But from noon the ships reported to be at, or near, the scene!
of what may be recorded as the world's greatest marine
horror, sent not the slightest syllable of encouragement to
the anxiously waiting world.
Early last night there was hope that any moment
might bring word of cheer. But anxiety deepend and many
friends and relatives of those who sailed on the Titanic
began to despair as hours passed and the night grew old
without word from either of the Allan liners, Parisian or
Virginian, believed to be with the exception of the Car-
