PLEASE NOTE VICK'S VAPORUB OVERSOLD DUE TO PRESENT EPIDEMIC Tremendous Demand Last Few Days Hat Wiped Out Excess Stocks that We Had Estimated Would Last Until Next January. Last Week's Orders Called for One and Three Quarter Million Jars?Today's Orders Alone Amount to 932,459 Jars. Big Shipments Are En Route to Jobbers. Until These Axriye There May Be a Temporary Shortage?All Deals Postponed. Bay in Small Lots Only. RETAILERS CAN GET IMME DIATE SHIPMENTS DIRECT BY PARCEL POST. This advertisement is written or? ] Monday. October 21. It is directed to the attention of all distributors of i Vtcte'a YapoRub. both wholesale and retail. In an emergency such as the present epidemic?our duty?and your duty?is to distribute VapoRub In the quickest possible manner to those sections stricken by influenza. We, therefore, call your careful attention to the following: DA\(.KK OF SHORTAGE IF SUP PLY IS NOT CONSERVED. On October 1 we had on hand, at cur factory and in twenty warehouses j scattered over the country, sufficient YapoRub to last us. we thought, un- j til January 1. allowing for a 50 per j cent increase over last year's sales.' and not counting our daily output. This bis: excess stock had been accu mulated during the summer months. Then this epidemic of Spanish in fluenza hit us?and in the last ten days this stock vanished. At first we thought this tremendous demand would last only a few days, but the orders have run: Wed.. Oct. 16 ?IS..">04 doz. Thurs.. Oct. 17 25.223 doz. Fri.. Oct. 18 39,256 doz. SaL. Oct. 19 45,833 doz. Mon.. Oct. 21 77.706 doz. Up to Saturday. October 19. we have actually shipped for this month 1400.284.10. or over two million Jars of YapoRub. THE PROBLEM NOW IS TO DIS TRIBUTE VAPORUB QUICKLY. M^?t of this tremendous quantity is still en route to the jobbers, but freight and express are both con gested nowadays, and it may be some time before this supply reaches the Jobbers. In the meantime, therefore. It is necessary that we distribute, as widely as possible, the stock that we j are manufacturing daily, together I with that now on the Jobbers' and ratailers' shelves, in order that it may get to the influenza districts quickly. Our normal output is about 4.<00 dozen per day. We are putting on a night shift, but it will be a little while before that is producing. WHAT WE ASK THE WHOLESALE DRUGGIST TO DO.

If you have any quantity or ders. given the jobber's salesman or given to our salesman, don't bother about them?no need to write us?it is absolutely impossible to fill these or ders at this time. If the jobbers in your territory are out of Vick's |VapoRub, we will ship you by parcel post, prepaid, quantities not more | than three f3) dozen 30c size in any j one order. Naturally, we can't open I accounts at this time, so your check jor money order for this amount must accompany order. Don't write us stating to ship through your jobber, as we then have to wait until we write this jobber and get his O.

Mary ?nd I had talked until we were nervous, to we walked the length of the train for exercise. Midway down the corridor of the compartment car. my birf dread of the day was realised. Daddy and Mother Lorimer emerged from their rpom and came toward us on ths / way to the diner. "Reai for dinner, Jeanne?" asked uaddy. Then a ripple of amazement flitted <*ver his distin guished features as he caught a glimpse of the girl behind me. Mary and I couldn't turn back. We exchanged glances like two naughty children caught in mis chief. Yet. viewed from any angle of justice, I couldn't see why the I gfirl wasn't as respectable as the i millionaire, nor why she and I should feel like culprits. Plainly, d?addy did not intend to recognise Mary?and the decision' embarrassed him. Still, I wasn't; moved to upare him an atom of: his purgatory. I I exclaimed. 'Oh, Mother Lorimer!! [Let me introduce Mary Thomas!" I And then I let the big blow fall: "Miss Thomas. Mr. Lorimer!" Daddy scarcely nodded?then he repented this too obvious rudeness and made a quick and awkward bow. Mother helped things out, thus: "Is your friend traveling alone, i Jane? Then I would be so glad ! to have her dine with us." Daddy glowered at the darken-1 in* landscape. I knew I was not ordained to be an instrument of vengeance In hie case. still I could not keep from urging Mary to Join us. But the girl saw her path clearly and never hesitated: "Thank you very much. Mrs. Lori ?mer. I am sorry to refuse?but? I have had my dinner." She had?at noon?maybe. She was tired, but she went on without her meal that night rather than affront with her presence the gentle and love ly wffe of the Hon. James D. Lorimer. Only the ghost of gayety presided at our dinner. Mother was a little flush ed?once or twice she smiled at a thought of her own. She did not refer to Mary. It occurred to me that she might know, more of her husband's adventure than her children imagined. I marveled at the fate which had thrown together all of the principals in the most tragic trick love ever plays on human beings. Mother, all soul and spirit?all good ness?hadn't deserved what had come to her. That little bunch of humilia tions, alone In the rear coach, hadn't deserved all of the punishment she was doomed to get. Daddy I^orlmer, although he had spent thousands on his irregular romance and although It might still cost him an election, didn't value it a pin's worth, now. The whole affair was as worthless to him as tha,t false flicker which had flared up between the girl and the man who had flirted so vulgarly over his wife's shoulder. "Daddy L#orimer is perfectly disgust ed with himself?and he just about hates Mary. Passion Jeads people no where at all." I advised myself. "Jane LiOrlmer, don't you ever let the lure of it spoil your life with Bob." (To Be Continued.) ICaaniAt 191* > Her Husband's Friends By DOROTHY DIX THE WORLD'S HIGHEST PAID WOMAN WRITER. Why the average woman Is ob sessed by an ineradicable Jealousy of everyone her husband ever knew be fore he met har, la one of the myster ies of feminine psychology that no one can solve. It is merely so. Mrs. Bride is filled with deep, dark suspicion of all of her husband's old pals of his own sex, and nothing tail convince her that they are not trying to entice him away and lead him Into the downward path, no matter what moral, sober, upright citizens they may be. And when it comes to his women friends she Is beyond argument. They may be old enough to be his mother, i They may be as discreet hs Caesar's | wife. They may be infatuated with I their own husbands. Nothing will persuade the young wife that they are not sirens who are in love with her husband, and have designs upon him. You needn't tell her how noble, kind and good they arc. She knows them. Therefore. Mrs. Newlywed considers it her first duty to separate her hus bands from these baneful influences of his past, and she proceeds to do it with a thoroughness and a frightful ness that takes the poor man's breath away, and leaves him wondering what has happened to him, and why the people who have loved him fo* so Ion* suddenly seem to love him no more. Sometimes the young wife Is sueh a clumsy bungler and her mothods are so raw that he catches her in the act of driving away the faithful friends who have been attached to him for years and years. Then there are protestations, and hot arguments, and tears and general ructions, but it is one of the cases where the woman always wins out. because friendship cannot thrive under forced conditions. Generally, however, the young wife rids herself effectively of all her husband's former acquaintances by the simple process of freezing them out. Few people have an appetite for cold shoulder, and that forms the piece de resistance that most brides serve to husband's old friends when he invites them to dinner. There are limits even to the sacrifices that friendship feels called upon to make. and one ghastly cold storage evening at Fred's, or Tom's, is all that his old chums can stand. They depart ' never to return. Of course there are some excep tions to this rule. Here or there you will find a woman who is big and broad enough to realise that her husband did not live in soli tary confinement in a dungeon cell up to the time he married her. She appreciates that he knew many other men and women, among: whom he formed friendships and attachments that are dear to him, and that there is no reason for his giving them up because he has married. So she takes these peo pie into her life and loves them because her husband loves them, and Is grateful to them because they were grood to him. Unfortunately, this kind of wo man is almost as rare as hen's teeth. The common or garden va riety of woman is so petty and narrow that she cannot endure the thought that her husband has ever even liked anybody but herself. So she builds a wall around her home and writes, "No Admission to Husband's Old Friends" on its gates. You need no better proof of this than the fact that after a man marries you meet in his house, and at his table, only his wife's friends. : He pays the bills, but he is not free to bring home an old chum to I dinner. And if he ia bold enough ! to take such a liberty, he has to | listen to a thousand criticisms on ! the unwelcome guest from his wife. I Perhaps a man finds no more bitter I disappointment in matrimony than I this unreasoning jealousy of his wife toward his old friends. One of his ! innocent dreams of bliss has been having a home of his own where there will always be a chair by the fire for | his old pals, with whom he has shared good fortune and ill fortune in his struggling years, whose help has saved him many a time, and the knowledge of whose loyalty and love are among the most precious things j in his life. They have a million mem- j ories and experiences in common, and he thinks of the beatific evenings j when the tWo of them will sit and smoke and recall reminiscences, and | wife will beam on them as they talk But the dream has a rude awaken ing when wife hands chum a frap-1 ped welcome that would make an Arctic winter seem tropical, and when she makes fun of his clothes, and de- i rides his manners, and can't abi<je the smell of /his tobacco. That elim inates old chum. ' j And the mail gets still more of a jar when wife hands out the cold j turndown to some woman friend who,' has been an anchor and a stay to' him in his youth and whose influence has perhaps made him the fine fellow he is. Or perhaps the old friend ia somo boardiaghouso keeper who has given him food and shelter in some crisis when he was out of work, i or ha* nursed him through some long illness. and to whom he is bound. by eternal ties of gratitude, but whom his wife refuses to welcome in his home because she isn't stylish. perhaps if wives realized how cruel i they are in trying . to uproot their | husband's old friendships they would i stay their hands. Assuredly theyj would be more careful if they even | guessed that when they do it they make their husbands feel that they] have made a bad exchange in giving up generous-minded friends for a nar now-mlnded wife. Nor need , any woman be jealous of j her husband's old friends. If she will make them hers, every one of them will be an ally in helping her to keep his love.

Dr. Finley reports that everywhere people are clamoring for help and an opportunity to do work in re habilitation of their ruined towns and devastated fields.
