Mr. Wister was particularly inter? ested in a ' tt.e to America's un? known dea I spoke fc." ngly of the ??ad sic' ?? while in France.

Prices are much low r than in this country, a aea cost ng only 12 cents in some of the restaurants of the Continent It was his second visit to the battle ftelds in th? last two years and the '.aie: "-rip was to investigate more fully the progress that has been made in reconstruction and rehabilitation by i!:e French government. Gets Material for Novel "Durir.e my residence abroad I de TOtprf most of my time to gathering material along international lines for a new novel, which will soon be pub? lished,'' he said. "The purpose of the book will be to foster good relations between France and ourselves. It jyill sot be along romantic lines. I spent four months ?n France, and though 1 ?did not visit Germany I met many who did. They told me that the Germans are working hard and that they are ir.ore united than either the English or the French. They are evincing a very firm recuperation. "I saw the battlefields of France two year? ago. and my recent trip there was to see what progress had been made by the government. They are undoubt? edly the saddest sights that I wit? nessed, but next in sadness were the American cemeteries. During my en? tire visit I did not come in contact with one person who advocated the return of our hero dead to these shores. ?"The graves are well kept in the military cemeteries. This is ]jarticu iariy true of the British graves. Each on? has a headstone with the name of the soldier lying beneath it, as well as the name of his. regiment and his insignia. The=e English cemeteries are the most beautiful I have ever seen in Fiance, with their well kept grounds "Keep Husband Guessing" Is Sure-Fire Rule to Hold Him Let Him Cuss, Don't Hunt His Collar Button, and, Above All, Make Him Think He Is It, Is New Century Woman's Guild Recipe Specini DUpatch to The Tribune PHILADELPHIA, Aug. '?1.?If a wom? an can capture a husband there is no reason why she should not be able to keep him, was the sage decision here to-day o? the New Century Guild, a woman's organization, after a solemn debate on hew to handle the masculine half of the species. Men came in for caustic criticism in ; the course of the discussion, one ex? ponent of woman's rights declaring that "men try to make women think they are doing them a great honor in marrying them, and then if the women do not keep themselves looking up to par, always sweet and dainty and ready ! to be kissed, no matter how much they are batteied about, they will soon be neglected." Before the afternoon was over, how I ever, the following principles were ' generally accepted as almost "sure : fire": "Don't be shocked if friend husband ! emits an occasional damn; it doesn't mean anything. "Don't scramBle around on the floor hunting his shirt stud; let him look for ! it; it will do him good. "Don't ask him to shine your shoes. "Never antagonize him, but always 1 keep him guessing. ? "Le% the man do the proposing, and 1 when he does, be responsive. Being too coy is dangerous, for some men won't : ask the second time. "Make the man think he is it." One of the debater?. Dr. Alice M. I Norton, advocated choosing for one's husband a man of opposite coloration. i A blonde, she said, should select a dark ; haired man, and vice versa. profusely decorated with flowers and '. shruhbery. "We are the only people who are I taking their soldier dead home. The j English, the Australians, the New Zealanders and all other Allies have left their boys in the care of the i French people and the latter are faith I ful to their trust. I have never met any one who does not feel the same j as our allies that the men who have I sacrii'iced their lives should remain ! undisturbed in their present resting j places. Would Bring Back Unknown Dead "But I am in favor of bringing home one unknown soldier whose body should have a nation's tribute paid to it as symbolical of all those whose identity will never be known. England and France have honored their un? known dead in this manner, the former at Westminster Abbey, the latter at the Arc de Triomphe. "Marshal Foch is coming to this country in the fall. His visit should ! be made the occasion of the greatest j celebration in our history to our un ! known heroes. He will be accompanied ? by some of the greatest men of France. \ What could be more fitting than if we ! brought one of our boys, whose name ! will never be known, to this country at | that time and reinterment be made j at the foot of the Lincoln monument | in Washington with fitting ceremonies. I "I select the Lincoln monument, for ?it occupies one of the most venerated ; spots in America. Mount Vernon is also appropriate, but it is too inacces? sible to the public. The nation's capi? tal is the proper city for the last rest j ing place of one of our unknown he , roes, wn? will symbolize the thousands j of those who lie in graves beyond the | ?eas, unnamed but equally honored. "In my opinion the American Legion should take this matter up and ar : range the celebration so that it can j take placa when Foch and the other ?distinguished visitors come to America | this fall." Mr. Wister is returning to ! his home in Philadelphia. i Among the other passengers on the ' Finland were five Y. M. C. A. secre ' taries who were with the Army of Oc ! cupation in Germany. They had seen various terms of service abroad and had visited many countries. In the party were Misses Blanche Preston, of Knoxville, Tenn.; Martha Vick, of Rochester; Elsie Hammond, of Hia? watha. Kan.; Annie Frank Bass, of Atlanta, and Alice Anderson, of Wash? ington, D. C. U. S. Troops Would Stay on Rhine. "There are sixty secretaries still left in Germany," said Miss Anderson, "and ten of them are due here shortly. The 12,000 American soldiers on the Rhine do not want to come home, and neither did we." Other voyagers were Se?or Louis Lorabuse, attach? of the Peruvian Le? gation at Berne, Switzerland; II. F'ecn ter-Maulton. an English barrister: Judge and Mrs. George L. Genung, of the Municipal Court; Major and Mrs. B. L. Eichelberger, U. S. A., returning from China and the Continent; Roland Young, the actor, and Joseph Pipal. athletic coach of Occidental College, Los Angeles. The Finland brought 139 first, 179 second and 687 steerage pas? sengers. According to some of the travelers the cost of living on the Continent is steadily decreasing. In some of the best hotels accommodations for two can be had for $7.50 a day, including meals, or $3.50 a day without meals. A good luncheon can be had for 35 cents and an excellent dinner for 40 cents, they said. In Wiesbaden a haircut, shave and shampoo cost only 11 cents. Vienna is not any more expensive than Paris, despite the reports to the con? trary, it was said. Park Gate Kills Boy Harold Flynn, three years old, of 530 West Fiftieth Street, was fatally in? jured yesterday when a heavy iron gate in De Witt Clinton Park became un? hinged and toppled over on him. He died a short time later at Roosevelt Hospital. He was playing with his four broth? ers when the accident occurred. Word of his death was withheld from his mother, who gave birth to a child three days ago. 1,000 Babies In Asbury Park Parade Aug. 31 Annual Contest This Year Will Be Part of Golden Jubilee Fete at Resort Founded by J.

Fire Sand Barrage To Rescue Pretzel ! Man From Police Coney Mob of Bathers Al? most Saves Peddler, 80, Before Reserves Arrive: 2 Arrested, 9 Sumoned Meyer Feltman, who is eighty years old and set in his ways, persists in selling Dretzels as of yore at Coney ; Island, oblivious to the fact that the pretzel is in. the same fix as the last rose of summer and he kept on ped? dling them quite cheerfully yesterday after Patrolman Mulvihili told him that he would ?iave to produce a license or quit. About 2:30 o'clock in the afternoon when Mulvihili encountered the old man again on the beach and found him stili offering pretzels to all comers. the patrolman undertook to arrest him. Not many of the bathers had displayed much interest in Feltman and his pretzels up to that moment, but when Mulvihili started off with the protest? ing old man, women and men in bath? ing suits ?ocked about him like crows around a hawk. From such exclamations as "Ain't it a shame!" and "Aw the poor old fel ; t r! '' they proceeded to throwing sand, no other missiles being handy. Both the patrolman and his prisoner were deluged with sand. It got into their eyes and their months and down their necks and up their noses, and Feltman contiguously was combing it out of his beard with his pretzel stick. The reserves from the Coney Island police station arrived in time to rescue Mulvihili before his uniform had been torn completely away, but he lost i is gloves and his nightstick and his temper. 'S?? crowd surged after the police to tne station house, about a dozen of them crowding into a taxieab and trailing the police patrol in state. They said they wanted to make charges against Mulvihili of using un? necessary force in making the arrest, but their attempt to aid the old man was a tactical mistake, because nine of them got summonses for appearing in the street in bathing attire and two mere were arrested on a charge of dis? orderly conduct in interfering when Mulvihili was making the arrest. Those arrested were Ida Levy, of 14 Hahn Walk, Coney Isiar.d, and her brother. Irving Levy, of 118 East lloth Street. Manhattan. Ends Life With Bullet DENVER, Aug. 21.?Frank T. Bau hoff, a business man of Alliance. Ohio, ended his life to-day by sending a bullet through the roof of his mouth as he sat in a window of a sanitarium here. His body fell to the ground at the feet of other patients who were sitting on a porch. He was fifty-two years old. Three Held as Car Rowdies ? Arrests Made After Women ?and Children Suffer Violence Twenty-five or thirty men who got on i the 10:29 train for St. George at South Beach, S. I., last night became so boisterous, pushing and punching one ? another, that women were thrown from their seats and children trampled in a rush to avoid th? rowdies. The train crew feared that the situa? tion was beyond their control and the train passed through Fort Wadsworth with the locomotive whistle sounding a call for the police. Reserves from the Stapleton station went through the cars seeking the ringleaders in the uproar, which by that time had been quieted by train? men. They arrested Salvatore Trigini, o* t?9 Spencer Street; Patrick Bcna, of 744 Bedford Avenue, and Rosso Vino, of ?77 Myrtle Avenue, all of Brooklyn. Two wonderful Teas?

Every manufacturer with national aspira? tions quite naturally looks to The Chicago Market, because it is the most important market in America, and Chicago proper is now the fourth l.argest city in the world. But many manufacturers stay out of it be? cause they have heard that it is a hard market to conquer, and others rush in and pepper at it a little bit without accomplishing much, largely be? cause, with so many people, they think it must be ?an easy market to conquer. Now Chicago is neither a hard m-arket nor an easy one. It is a perfectly normal market^ and certainly not a costly one, considering its size. The trouble with those manufacturers who thought it was too hard, as well as with those who ' ?thought it too easy, h.as been in confusing the idea of the "Chicago Market" proper with the so called "Chicago Territory*9 The Chicago Market proper, which is Chi? cago itself, has a population of three ?million ?peo? ple living shoulder to shoulder within a radius of forty miles. The Chicago Territory, which ?is the market of the five central states surrounding Chi? cago and influenced by Chicago, has a population of sixteen million people within a radius of four hundred miles. But The Chicago Market and The Chicago Territory have been pictured to the manufacturer as one and the same thing, which he must put over at one and the same time. He has been told that this or that far-flung circulation, going everywhere, but in reality getting nowhere, would do the work. y Bat it can't be done that way. The Chicago Market proper and The Chicago Territory are two quite separate things. The Chicago Territory is influenced strongly by The Chicago Market, but The Chicago Market is not influenced greatly by The Chicago Territory. So you can't sell "The Chicago Territory?'? that is, the hundreds of cities and towns in the five states surrounding Chicago?until you have actually sold The Chicago Market itself. Every live merchant outside of Chicago knows just what every dealer in Chicago is doing with every na? tional product on his shelves. And the thirteen - million people surrounding Chicago like to buy, ?and are influenced in buying, what Chicago buys? Sut when you do sell The Chicago Market, when you find that you not only have complete distribution but popular demand at this center of influence, you will discover to your amazement that the cities and towns surrounding Chicago are already more than half sold before you get there. Therefore, don't hesitate about your inva? sion of Chicago and the middle west. Come when you are ready. Take Chicago first and hunt up the medium in Chicago that all of the merchants in Chicago rely upon. Don't worry about these far-flung circula? tions, spattering a hundred surrounding cities like a load of birdshot. Just come to the medium that covers Chicago and all of Chicago and nothing else. That medium is THE CHICAGO DAILY, NEWS. Four hundred thousand daily circulation, six days in the week, reaching seven out of nine of all the English speaking people in the fourth largest city in the world, ?and 94% of its entire circulation of 400,000 concentrated within a radius of forty miles of Chicago's city hall. Every successful merchant in Chicago uses it, and wouldn't think of not using it. He may go into this or that other medium as subsidiary, but he knows that his daily bread is ?assured by Us daily advertising in THE CHICAGO DAILY NEWS. Remember?The Chicago Market first?and thoroughly. And after that, the widespread Chi? cago Territory is already well in hand and easily developed to the full.
