Says Message. -
Only Remedy for Situation Is
3Iost Rigid Economy.
Washington, May 6. Further ad
vances in print paper prices are to be
made by the International Paper com
pany on July 1, said a telegram from
Chester W. Lyman, yice president of
the company, which waa presented to
day to the senate committee investi
gating the naper shortage.
The message, addressed -to Joseph
Pulitzer, Jr., publisher of the St. Louis
Post Dispatch, said:
"Alarming riv in prices, for pulp
wood, other rw materials and mill
supplies, together with inevitable in
crease In transportation charges, will
necessitate higher selling price for last
two quarters.
"Impossible to forecast extent of in
crease on account of uncertainty of
conditions, increase in cost likely to
continue 'to turning point reached in
general industrial, social and finan
cial conditions. ,''
"Only remedy for present trouble Is
rigid economy by publishers in their
use of news print. It would be height of
folly for government to attempt to
regulate or lower spot market, onerous
as it may appear, as it would Vesult in
diversion of many specialty mills now
making news prist to their normal
"This addition to present news print
supply stimulated by the high price
of the spot market is estimated ax
about 150,000 tons a year."
Prisoner Who Attempted Suicide Re
leased from State Hospital.
'John Ivy, who attempted to commit
suicide in the county jail during the
winter and was taken to the state hos
pital for treatment, was. released from
the state institution today. Bob Miler,
) under-sheriff, met Ivy at the hospital
jand immediately took him into cus
I tody. Ivy will be taken to Kansas
City today to face a charge of jumping
his bond in that city several-months
j Ivy Was arrested at the Western
Union office in Topekawhile the state
j.teachers' convention was in progress.
Ore of tha visiting teachers claimed
that he met Ivy, who during.the course
of conversation, . learned his name
and address and the name and address
of his father In a small Kansas town.
Then, it was claimed. Ivy wired to
the school tea oiier'a father and asked
the parent to wire money to nim at
Topeka, care the Western .Union, sign
ing the teacher's name. The father
was suspicious and wired his son. who,
in turn, notified the police. . Officers
found Ivy waiting, at the Western"
Union office.
After his arrest Ivy began to act
queerly, claiming that inmates of the
jail had used "crooked" dice on him
in a crap game. He continually cried
and complained about the loss of his
money and finally endeavored to end
it all by taking an overdose of medi
cine left in the cell for the use of drug
addicts. Upon the advice of physi
cians he was sent to the state hospital
for treatment.
Kansas City police say Ivy is wanted
there charged with a similar confi
dence game to the one police here say
he endeavored to work in Topkea.
Pending his trial he was released on
bond and ran away, according to Kan
sas City police. . "
St. Louis. Walter G. Hann. IT. believed
In preparing for -the worst. After he com
mitted suicide by drinking poison the
police found a will requesting that be be
"burled in so asbestos coffin and. a bottle
of ice water inside." , -

Cranolene cured me of Eczem and 1 had

(On March 20. 1920, four years after. Mr.
Enoch again writes: "Mr little cirl and I
are both well. We are freed of Eczema,
and we five your Cranolene the praise."
SCIENCE has discovered that the
mild acid-like juice found under
the skin of the common table cran
berry quickly destroys the tiny
parasite that causes Eczema and
most skin troubles. This cranberry
juice has been combined with sooth
ing, cooling, healing oils. The re
sult is CRANOLENE, an amazing
cream that stamps out the cause of
Eczema and restores the skin to
its natural health and color.
