That la Your Part for a Day In a
Campaign to Which Detroit
Mon and Woman Glvo of Their
Tima the Yaar Around.
Amd that day will crown the efforts of noble men and women who
art leading the light against this disease and who are organised to pro
; Mata Ha stndy and prevention.
Wednesday in Detroit will be Blue Star day.
The sale of tags bearing blue stars will be conduoted under the
Mfjnces of these men and women and the proceeds from their sale will
gt toward the proper care of dependents afflicted with tuberculosis and
toward the preeerration of the public health in general through providing
the means for proper precautionary measures.
Young ladies will give up a day of their time willingly and will be
on all street oorners, in the stores and in the offioe buildings with tags to
•apply pasters by.
The suooess of the day is dependent upon a perfect organisation to
which the men and women to whom we have referred have given cheer
fully of THEIB time.
How it remains for YOU to show your sympathy with this grand
Don’t fail to buy a blue star.
Yon can pay as much or as little as you like for H.
If a penny is all you can afford, that is all you are expeoted to give.
That penny being all you can afford you can feel the same satisfac
tion as the man who will be able to give a thousand dollars, for you have
given in proportion to the way fortune has smiled on you the same as
the who has more than you from which to give. I
Ho matter what you pay for it, to wear the blue star tomorrow will
designate yon as a public-spirited oitisen appreciative of the efforts that
MMiriflcing men and women of Detroit are putting forth to prevent the
qvead of this dread plague and to eventually rid society of a disease for
pears regarded as unconquerable.
Last year over SII,OOO was raised on Tag day.
But that was not all.
The spirit with which the citisens of Detroit entered into the plan
to raise funds to wage war on the tuberculosis germ continued over the
day and as a consequence the question of the public health has been one
the past year of an increased interest.
While the money collected from the sale of the tags was being used
for proper treatment of indigent cases and in the education of those where
the disease exists, the general public was manifesting its interest by way
«f an increased sentiment for public playgrounds and better sanitary con
BB&T*?/-.:. t ' • -v
This year it is hoped the amount of contributions to the fund will
be doubled and that Blue Star day will have the added effect of a doubled
interest which will grow and grow until the grim reaper will call in vain
where he has reaped his harvest of victims of this dreaded plague.
Be sure you wear a blue star and pay for it all you can possibly
You oould not invest a dollar in a more worthy cause.

“The Man
Who Stole
The Earth”
By W. Holt IVhttt
CHAPTER LXVlll.—(Continued.)
Every now and again they passed
over a patrol, aud In the rays of the
searchlight they could see the troopers
i rein In their horses and mechanically
salute as the Dt passed overhead.
They went at as good speed us they
could make, which however, was not
much over fifty miles an hour, uutil
they came to the frontier. Here the
toad straggled up Into the hills, and,
after that, lost itself In thick pine
woods, so that they had to drop to a
speed of about thirty miles an hour.
But when they had crtmr.ed the fron
tier a great open plain streiehed before
them, and as the moon was now up,
they were enabled to put on speed to
about the extent of 100 miles an hour.
They played the seurchlight all
round them us they went, ulthough, as
a matter of fact, Strong saw clearly
enough that their very use of It might
destroy his purpose. Inasmuch as the
occupants of the car they were seek
ing would probably be warned by its
Arbuthuot, who hud been making
certain calculations, then told Strong
that they must of necessity be up with
the king of Balkania if they had not
already passed him, for the staft he
had stolen was nto u gr?at one, and
even the furiously driving Ludwig
could not with any safety have made
more than between 30 and 40 miles an
hour along the rough road to Croatia.
Strong, recognlxing the force of this
argument, ordered Arbuthnot to put
dut the searchlights.
"Tht best thing we can lo.” he sakl.
“is to hang here until sun tip. There
is then just a chance that we may
spy the car If as I imagine, his majes
ty is lying low till daybreak. But,
after all. It Is a chance. I ant afraid
the quarry has got clear away."
It was no wabout 2 o'clock in the
morning, and Strong bade Arbuthnot
lie down to rest, saying that he would
call him at 4. This at least gave them
two hours sleep apiece.
Arbuthnot grumbled in friendly
fashion at the arrangement, urging
that, as the control of things was
uder Strong, he was most In need of
the first sleep. Indeed, lie had It in
his mind. that, should Strong be per
suaded to sleep flrsi. he would let him
sleep on until sunrise.
But Strong was quick enough to de
tect that thought.
"Yes, my dear chap." he said, "and
then out of the kindness of your heart
you would fail to wake ne at 4. Nor
a bit of it. This is business, and
business is best left to the «eltlsh man
You need not have the lightest fear
that I shall fall to wake you at the
appointed time.
Arbuthnot laughed, pulled some rugs
about him, curled up on the deck of
the ”D1” and was Instantly asleep.
Strong kept his lonely watch, now
and again turning on the searchlight !
lest the flying king should b eseeklng i
to reap the advantage of the darkness. '
But not a sign of life ir the plain
beneath him met his straining vision. J
At 4 he roused Arbuthnot. and lav
down himself. Before he did so. how !
ever, he warned Arbuthnot against tho
use of the searchlight, saying that It
would be an easy matter to pick up the j
king by daylight should he come from ■
his hiding-place before 6 o’clock.
At 6 It was fairly light when Ar-1
buthnot roused Strong, but although j
they made the best Investigation thev |
could of the plains below them with
the glasses there was nothing sus
picious to be seen.
Strong waited for another 02 min
utes or so until the light, was better,
in order that they might follow the
rosd at the greatest possible altitude.
Then he put the airship full speed
ahead, and within half an hour they
covered 002 miles.
But still there was nothing to be
seen of the flying king
Strong, therefore, checked the "Dl.”
and, turning to Arbuthnot, said.

A Weed, Not a Flower
Frank Work, a well known New York millionaire whose daughter
married a foreign high-flyer, declares that international marriages should
be a hanging offense, if he had his way. "I have only contempt." says
he, "for these helpless, hopeless, lifeless titled men who cross the ocean
to carry off the very flower of our womanhood."
Os course, Frank is right in thinking well of his own daughter who
was "carried off” and in his contempt of the foreign "Its" whose only
possessions are a threadbare title and a blanket mortgage on their an
cestral halls, but he is 'way off his base in classing as the very flower of
our womanhood the silly American girl who marries the refuse of foreign
nobility for sake of a title.
There is no creature on earth quite so useless, quite so much a weed
instead of a flower, as the average daughter of our millionaire families.
She tolls not. neither does she spin. She has no responsibilities. She has
no labors save those of keeping In the van as to dress and Jewels. To
swosh around in society and Anally land a title to go with her diamonds
and satins comprises her life ambition.
In fact, in uselessness and general shallowness, she is a flt mate for
the foreign specimen of evaporated manhood whom she Anally purchases
and leads to the altar.
The transplanting in foreign soil of our millionaire "flowers of
womanhood" would be a positive blessing to America, In every way, were
It not for the millions of dollars they take with them, and our lawyers
even bring back some of this money through service in divorce and other
scandalous affairs.
Os course, there are exceptions. There are a few IMen Goulds.
There are a few rich American girls who marry titled and are
a credit to this country and their husband's country. But, they are the
exceptions which prove the rule that, save ns to the sordid doilars, this
country loses nothing by the marriage of our millionairesses to the titled
paupers from abroad. Certain it is that the flower of our womanhood
misses nothing.
The flower of our womanhood is the conscientious, loving, laboring,
child-raising mother and housewife, and the girl whose aim is to be such.’
