"Out of that great number, perhaps a few hundred aro consistently suc cessful. Why?

MIDCITY JOfNSIN PURE AD CAMPAIGN Citizens Condemn Fake Adver tising and pake Auction Sales. Tho man who misrepresents his wares in advertisements. came in for tho most severe condemnation from the members of tho Mid City Cltlrens Associations last night at the regular meeting of that organzatlon, and President Andrew J. Drlscoll was appointed to servo on the ad-vlgllance committee of the Retail Merchants' Association. The matter of false advertising, fako auction sales and fly-by-night merchan dising waH brought to the attention of the organization by Joseph Bcrberlch. Mr. Bcrberlch said that merchants who have any regard for tho value of their business hae recognized tho poor policy of misrepresenting goods In ad vertisements for many years. No sclf respectlng merchant will think of do ing such a tiling. The man who has no such scruples, he said, takes advantage' of the honest merchant'a honesty by false advertising as well as promoting n. fraud on the purchasing Dubltc. Mr. Bcrberlch called attention to tho work that was being dono by the Retail Merchants Association and of tho law rn-oposed to govern such things in the District. On the motion of John H. Shugrue, Mr. Drlscoll was chosen ti represent the Association on tho Retail Merchants' Association committee. A.

In the now schedulo of wages nt In dian Head, machinists are ndvanced from $4 to J4.24 a day, tinners from $3.54 to $3.92 a day, and wiromen from KW to J4.08 a day.

Advt m mmmm KS&&BS1 I3SSES1 T Like Rust in a Fine Watch That is Constipation A RUSTY watch loses time. In the same way, a rusty human system .is clogged and slowed down by con stipation, which causes a tremendous loss of mental and physical energy. The Temedy in the case of the watch is a fine grade of ma chine oil. And the remedy for constipation, according to the latest conclusions of medical science, is an even finer lubricant Nujoi the pure white mineral oil. Nujol lubricates the intestinal tract throughout its entire length, and softens the intestinal contents. In this way it facilitates the processes of normal evacuation, and eventually makes possible the return of regular1 bowel movements. Nujol is not a laxative-drug nor a bowel stimulant. It is not absorbed by the system, hence it may be taken in any quantity without harm. It does not act as a purge, but if used regularly will bring permanent relief from constipation in the course of a week or ten days. Write for booklet, "The Rational Treatment of Constipation." If your druggist hasn't it, we will send a pint bottle of Nujol prepaid to any point in the United States on receipt of 75c money order or stamps.
