CANADIAN LUMBER STRONG.
NEW YORK. February 23.?Cana
dian lumber producers will- prove
strong contenders for business here

according to official statement. On
tario manufacturers and wholesalers
are preparing to go after American
business stronger than ever before. It
is said, and already they are selling
quite a volume of hardwood lumber
to industrial consumers, such as auto
mobile body makers and furniture
manufacturers. They are also devel.
oping quite a market in New York
and New England for spruce and
white pine. but. of course, these
woods have always been sold in this
territory. The new feature of the
situation is the activity of hardwood
producers.

JMUIU5 mmI the crowded car, going along the a
dusty street,_ sitting in the stuffy office,
theatre or school, you are bound to inhale the germs of disease.
These germs lodge in the soft tissues of the mouth and throat and
if unchecked, may develop into a dangerous ailment.
Formamint, the germ-fighting throat tablet, can be conven
iently used at any time or in any place you may be. At the first
sign of a sore throat, or when you are exposed to germs, take a tablet
and let it dissolve slowly in your mouth. Can be beneficially taken
' every half hour until throat is relieved.
I i Formamint mixes its powerful, pleasant tasting antiseptic
I with the saliva, bathing the infected membranes continuously;
} combats the germ* and keeps them at a safe minimum.
The tablets are so convenient to carry with yon, that they can
I be used unnoticeably wherever ycta may be. Buy a package from
I your druggist today, and be prepared to ward off sore throats,
I tonsillitis and influenza. Men find them very helpful in easing
! ''smokers' sore throat."

High Records for Year Made
by Some Favorites^-Fresh
Demand for Rails.
NEW YORK, February 23.?Accumu
lation of buying orders over the holiday
rave momentum to the further advafnce
of prices at the opening of today's stock
market. Foreign oils, especially Royal
Dutch; Shell Trading and Central As
phalt. were the strongest issues.
Southern Railway and St. Louis and
San Francisco featured the renewed
inquiry for speculative rails and Sears,
Roebuck, Wilson and Pierce Arrov*
preferred denoted short covering.
The only stock to show" acute weak
ness was National Enamelin common.
That stock dropped 3Vs points on further
portponment of dividend action.
Waver* Under Pressure.
The market wavered in the first half
hour, because of pressure against Mexi
can and Pan-American petroleums.
Crucible Steel and Rock Island. Prices,
rebounded briskly, however, on the fresh
demand for high-grade rails, steels,
equipments, motors and specialties.
High records for a year or more were
made by United States Steel, Baldwin
Locomotive. American Car, General
Electric, United States Rubber, Kelly
Springfield, Studebaker and Chandler,
these gaining 1 to 3 points.
Canadian Pacific added 1 to 3 points
to its recent steady advance and Union,
Pacific. Reading 2d preferred, St. Lou^f
and San Francico and Pere Marquette
preferred gained 1 to IV* points. Ameri
can Woolen, National Lead and Inter
national Nickel preferred' also were
strong.
National Enameling recovered all its
loss despite the passing of the common
dividend. Call money opened at 5 per
cent.
Trading Interest Quicken*.
There appeared further testimony to
the reawakening of speculative interest
in all the leading markets today. This
was pronounced on the stock exchange
and in the wheat pit. English. French.
Italian and Canadian exchange con
tinued to push ahead, and there were
certainly no signs of the culmination of
the moves. But the expansion of stock
market business, along with a further
rise in prices, and the vitality shown
in the wheat market when prices went
higher than ever were matters of more
interest toda}'.
Whether the increasing volume of
stock exchange transactions was an
index of reviving outside participa
tion was not altogether clear. Most
of the inspiration for the rise still
appeared to come from professional
sources. But even a cautious public,
which is still smarting from the les
son of a year ago, cannot fail to be
impressed with the multiplying
proofs that trade recovery, checked
at the beginning of the winter, has
been resumed.

DUE TO SPECULATION.
Paris Deprecates Sharp Bise in the |
Franc.
PARIS, February 23.?Speculation j
has been largely responsible for the
strengthening tendency of the franc,]
it is declared in official circles, where j
the recent sharp fluctuations were
greatly deprecated, in view of the up
heaval caused to financial and com- I
mercial operations. There have been I
no movements of funds, such as nat- j
41 rally would affect the relative values
of the franc, the pound sterling and |
the dollaiT*it is said at the finance j
ministry, so that increasing confidence
and speculation were the only ex
planations for the sharp rise in the i
value of the franc. j

MANY MILLINERY SHADES.
NEW YORK. February 23.?Present
millinery styles call for colors as
numerous as those seen In the coat
of Joseph, of biblical fame. Black
and white, both separaely and to
gether, show strongly, and there is
also a revival in navy blue apparent.
Greenish yellow shades, similar to
chartreuse, are also seen, with dan
delion one of the newest of the yellow
hues. In the red range the gamut is
run all the way from pink to deep
red. Periwinkle and vivid greens
show strongly, and there is also a
noticeable run on the browns and
tans. In the embroideries that are
used as trimmings the color trend is
strongly toward bizarre Russian and
Egyptian effects.

Washing Won't Rid
Head of Dandruff
The only sure way to get rid of
dandruff is to dissolve It, then you
destroy It entirely. To do this, get
about four ounces of ordinary li
quid arvon; apply It at night when
retiring; use enough to moisten the
scalp and rub It In gently with.the
finger tips. ^
Do this tonight, and by morning,
most, if not all, of your dandruff
will be gone and three or four
more applications will completely
dissolve and entirely destroy every
single sign and trace of it, no mat
ter how much dandruff you may
have.
You will find, too, that all Itch
ing and digging of the bcalp will
stop at once, and your hair will be
fluffy, lustrous, glossy, silky and
soft, and look and feel a hundred
times better.
You can get liquid arvon at any
drug store. It la inexpensive and
never falls to do the work.?Adver
