their objects are one and tde same.

of the Coler and Wiudle stripe.
They are beginning to think for
themsylves, and they are not
o easily hoodwinked as they onoe
were. To the intelligent mind the
apologists for Rome are amusing
in tho extreme. The old ship of
R: me is floundering in water too
-wift for her propeller. She is
navigated iy a captain whose
com, ass always points purgatory
ward, and manned by a crew of
lunatics who bolds to that course
r gardless of the wreckage in the
pathway. The people are not only
sick and tired of Rome and Ro
manism, but they are disgusted
with Buch miserable creatures as
the promoters of the ‘ Common
Cause” and “The Live Issue ”
They have no patience with wolves

Declare War on Colds
A crusade of education which
aims "that common co ds may
be :ome uncommon within the
next generation" has been brgun
by prominent New York Physi*
cians. Here is a list of the
"dou’ts” whioo the dootors say
wilt prevent the annual visitaticn
of the cold :
"Don’t sit in a draughty csr.”
"Dou’t sleep in hot rooms.”
"Don’t avoid the fresh air.”
‘‘Don’t stuff yourself at meal
time. Over eating reduces yi ur
resistance.”
To which we would add—when
you take a cold get rid of it as
quiiy as possible. To accomplish
that you will find Chamberlain’s

WAR WITHOUT QUARTER AT MONTEREY
Entlie Blocks Destrojied and Bodies are
Burned In Streets.
Laredo, Texas, Nov. 9.—War
fare without quarter with oppos
ing armies burning and dynamic
iug all that seemed to stand iu the
way to victory, has been waged at
Mouterey, Mexico, between the
defending Fed rals and the be
seiging Constitutionalists. Some
of the unremitting fierceness of
the struggle, particularL iu the
engagements of October 28 and 24
wheuthi Constitutionalists occu
pied a large portion of the the
city, is pictured iu Seiz-Zag, an
illustrated weekly published at
Mouterey, copies of which reach
ed Laredo today.
Many bodies were left in the
streets until a lull iu the fighting
should afford time for their burn
ing. A view of Cucnhtemoc street
near the National Railway station
where the conflict oentered, show
ed an entire block destroyed by
fire and oanonadiug. Numerous
oorpses are in the ruins.
General Miguel, whose residence
was one of the finest in northern
Mexico, was bnrned^to death when
Constitutionalists destroyed the
house by fire. The north faoade
of the government palace was shot
away.
The total property loss was said
to be incalculable. The railway

ABOUT ADVERTISING.
Truthfulness and Noisyness are Very Different
Quantities.
The advertiser helps the sub
scriber because a paper without
advertising would be forced to
charge much more for a year’s
subscription, and the subscriber
helps the advertiser by furnishing
him a medium to cry his wares.
The newspaper offers to sell
reading matter and space. Th e
reader buys the one; the adver
tiser the other. Space value is
reckoned by quantity and quality
of circulation. With the shrewd
est advertiser quality comes
first. To connect with the dollar
and not merely with the man, is
the advertiser’s motive. Hence
his appeal is to the man with the
dollar.
Strange to say, not all news
papers with space to sell are
abreast with merchants with
goods to sell. Yellow newspapers
outnumber yellow merchants.
The newspaper that prints
‘wild, whirling words’ about
itself is not exceptional.
The newspaper filled with
boastlul blasts about itself is not
yet dead.
The newspaper claiming in
big type, sometime at the ex
pense of big news that enterprise,
public affection for the com
munity are its private monopoly,
is still heard from.
That kind of newspaper is
twenty years behind the times.
It is twenty years behind the
merchant.
It tries to fool the merchant,
its customer, who is too wise and
too honest to try to fool the
people, his customers.—Ex.

Justice Out of Wan, What About Glenn.
Washington, Nov. 9—E. J.
Justice stole a maroh on every
body except Secretary Jcsephns
Daniels and Col. William H. Os
born. Weeks ago he was offered a
position as speoial attorney and
nobody dreamed it.
Mr, Justice was not the original
Wilson man in North Carolina,
but he was on the driver’s seat of
the Wilson band wagoD, early and
loud, and late. Now, he will go
to California, far out of Senator
Overman’sjterritory, to help Unole
Sam regain about 2 030,000 acres
of land that rightfully belongs to
him. He will assist one of the
U nited States distriot attorneys of
California.
Being a good lawyer, and a nat
ural-born trust fighter, made Mr.
Justice an ideal man for the de
partment of jastioe at this time.
He will be in position to use all
of his ability and vim and vigor,
fighting in behalf of Unole Sam.
Mr. Justice is not a stranger to
Attorney General MoReynolds, for
be helped in the controversy
againBt the American Tobacco
Company.
Secretary Daniels and Commis
sioner Osborn are said to have
started the movement that landed
Mr. Justice where he could not re
fuse a very excellent assignment
under a Democratic administra
tion. Mr MoReynolds asked Sen
ator Overman and Senator Sim
mons about Mr, Justice- Both
senat irs gave him a oapital name
as an attorney and a fighter.

ENTIRE EAST IN THE STORM’S GRIP.
Heaiy Snowfall In West Virginia, Western
Maryland and Other States.
Washington, Nov. 10—Practi
oally the .entire country east of
the Mississippi river is in the grip
of a storm, the snow, high winds
and cold wave reaohing from
Florida to New England. The
weather bureau declares that there
iB no relief in sight for the next
twenty-four hours. The high
winds are driving the storm to
ward the northeast. The heaviest
snowfall of the season, is reported
throughout West Virginia and
western Maryland. Killing frosts
are reported in Georgia and South
Carolina.
Chioago, Nov. 10.—Half a mil
lion dollars damage to wrecked
dooks, two deaths, damaged tele
graph aud telephone lines are the
result here of the most severe
early winter storm that has swept
the large region in many years.
The foroe of the storm here has
been spent.
Pittsburg, Nov. 9—Crippling
transportation facilities and pros
trating wire communication over
a wide area, an extraordinary
snow, sleet and wind storm visited
this seotion today and continues
tonight. During the time ten
inches of snow fell, four inches
more than in November since
1880. The barometer registered
20 C6, or about one inch below
normal, and this incident of the
storm is viewed as remarkable by
local offioialeof the United States
weather bureau. Throughout the
day a wind from the northwest
blew 40 miles an hour, while the
temperature dropped from 48 to
22 degrees in less than 15 hours.
Proceeded by heavy rains Friday
and Saturday, snow began falling
at 3 o’olock this morning. Before
noon railroad, trolley and vehicle
traffic was battling with the ele
ments in an effort to oontin ue
operations. Toward evening the
thermometer tumpled rapidly and
the water and snow froze. This
completely demoralized transpor
tation.

be transferred from this oity to
Salisbury. Whether or not the

not known, althcugh men who are
in touch with the situation will
not be surprised if Revenue Agent

for Washington, to confer with
Mr. Osborn relative to his future
location, the naming of Mr. Van
derford to relieve Mr, Sams mean
