TRAIN RACED WITH TWISTER Tonmdo ami Kuly Flyer Met But the Train Was Vl1or. Parsons, Kan., May 13. Passengers board the "Katy Flyer" Way 2 were given a hair raising race with the cyclone which wiped out the town of PesrKs, Okla.. and did terrible damage in that vicinity, according; to Knglneer Joseph R. Gerard of this city, who piloted the flyer locomotive. The engineer first sighted the storm near Lusta, Okla., apparently bout five miles distant, the funnel shaped cloud hieing very conspicuous. "We ran along for six miles paral lel with the storm." said the engineer. "At times It would dip down to the earth and then it would look like a olg nil tank on fire it was like dense, black smoke. Considering the course it was taking. I figured just about where It would cross the Katy track, and I decided to beat it to that place. "I threw 'er Vide open. The train and the twister converged at a fatal angle, but I kept on, and we won. The s,tnrm crossed low about two hundred yards behind us. I noticed next day that it had swept the ballast from beneath the track and had torn the wheat bare from the adjoining fields." KBATE SI'KCIAI.

By over sleeping in the hotel of the country town of Princeton, near here, two boys who gave the iiames of Buck Sanders and Bob lettman, Philadelphia, face a penitentiary sentence of five years for automobile theft. The two, according to their confes sion, attempted to steal a light car be longing to Carl Ashe, local insurance man, while it was parked on Main street Monday night. Ashe discovered the men just as they were leaving. Hailing R. W. Mitchell, who came along in his car, they gave chase, forcing the thieves to run the car into a curb. The boys ran. but not before the spotlight of the Mitchell car had given the Ottawa boys a good look at them. Sanders and Dettman next morning obtained rooms at the Princeton hotel, going to sleep on two formidable-looking revolvers, and did not awaken until 11 o'clock that night, when Ottawa officers, accompanied by Ashe and Mitchell, rudely awakened them and took them to jail. They were bound over to district court for sentence. STRIKE FAILED TO APPEAR, Only Attempt to Bolster Courage of Outlaws Say Railroad Heads. - Pittsburgh. Pa., May 13. The re ported strike of engineers and fire men of the three railroads entering Pittsburgh, to be effective this morn ing, had failed to materialize, railroad officials claimed, but trains were op erating as during the previous days of the "outlaw" strike. The report, originating from men attending a secret session of union 'railroaders here last night, was brand ed by railroad officials as an attempt to bolster up "the courage of "rebel" strikers. TOPHUS AWAIT THEIR BOAT Adeline and Frank Peers Out of Danger Zone In East. New York, May 13. Home will look mighty good to the two Kansas citizens, now anxiously 'waiting their opportunity to return to that state from the -danger district of the Near East. The couple tn question, Miss Adeline Peers and her brother Frank, both of Topeka, are In Beyruth, ac cording to a dispatch just received at the headquarters of the Near East Re lief. 1 Madison avenue. New Yorc City, and expect to take the first west bound steamer they can get out of that port. , Miss Peers has been with the Near East Relief as general relief worker at Aleppo, while her brother served with the same organization as doc tor's assistant at Aintab. Both have been in the Near East since February, 1919, and have been doing splendid work in helping to relieve the suf fering among jthe Armenians and Syrians, caused by their long months of warfare and privations. Turkish activities in the region of Aintab have made Mr. Peers and fellow relief workers there very uneasy regarding the safety of their thousands of charges, the war waifs and refugees. The bandits have possession of the roads surrounding Aintab and several trucks are being sent into the be sieged city to carry the children to a place of safety farther south, around Aleppo and Killis. North ofTripoll great numbers of refugees are pre senting the relief workers with new problems of feeding and clothing them, and the political chaos of Ar menia of course contributes to the suffering of the people, blocking the relief work. It is probable that the two Topeka young people will arrive in the United States within the next three weeks, unless the Mohammedans create fresh difficulties that will prevent Ameri cans from getting passage in a reason- able length of time. Snes Hotel for Selling Father Booze, j Oklahoma City, May IS.

Advertisement. rmeimes of 'erchaiidisiiii Fair Price is Sound Policy To our host of friends, the sellers of Coca-Cola to the public: IET us have a little family discussion with the windows open so that the neighbors u can hear it if they want to--about that ever-vital topic, Prices. " j I This is the one time above all others in our long career of sound merchandising when Price ought to be governed by Principle. High principles of merchandising alone can be relied upon to combat high cost in many lines where the temptation to profiteering is strong because of public demand. To charge all that the traffic will bear is bad business at any time; at this time it is the worst of bad business for the Coca-Cola dealer whose maintenance of standard price for many years has not only established Coca-Cola's good faith with the Amer ican millions, but, together with its maintained quality and maintained advertising! has built the good will of the product. ' We ask our friends and partners in the most comprehensive system of distribution in American business to reflect that Coca-Cola was the beginning of the soft drink industry and has always been the backbone of the soda-fountain trade; has carried and built up many an enterprise which made it a trade "leader"; has far outsold any other soft drink in. the world; and that for thirty years it made the 5-cent nickel the biggest buying power in a beverage. Independently of the cost of making it, The Coca-Cola Company has steadily maintained its delicious and refreshing quality, insured above imitation, and maintained its advertising appeal to the increasing millions of its consumers without permitting any conditions of ordinary fluctuation to disturb the price. In no other way could Coca-Cola have built up the volume of business for you, Friend Dealer. Sound merchandising alone can weather the storms. The policy that overlooks the insured dollar of tomorrow to pick up the loose dime of today points away from prosperity to demoralization. Your neighbor who is merely "getting while the getting is good" is at the same time dispensing bad will that will react upon him in the day of reckoning. Sane prices are the only sound policy and safeguard of suc cess one year with another. Fair prices- today are your option on the volume of trade that will forsake the profiteer tomorrow. You will be doing business at the same old stand. Stand by high principles of merchandising and they will stand by you when you have need of them - There is no more powerful and compelling example for good in these times than the merchant who stands on principle to forego opportunism There is no one force that will stand the nation in better stead.
