"BOBS" WANTED PUBLICITY
Tho correspondent of a French
newspaper who saw Lord Roberts
when he started for France, writes
to the London Times, stating that Earl
Roberts told him that ho intended to
speak to General French about tho
too great secrecy which, to his mind
was kept by the military authorities,
at the front and at homo, concerning
the work and brave deeds of tho Brit
ish troops. Ho considered that while
military movements should be kept
absolutely secret the knowledge that
tho British soldiers were fighting
against heavy odds would greatly stim
ulate recruiting In England.

should be distinctive and executed in good
taste?readable type?careful composition
?good, clean presswork?proper use of dis

sidered, which give to stationery style and
distinction that adds 100 per cent, to its
