The defenso of San Podro was considered just as that of othor liarbors on tho Paclflc or Atlantlo coast would be.'

Tho general staff'8 argument In thls conncctlon assumes that an enemy Is coming from lhe Orlent, and the state? ment ls mado that so far aa location ls concerned San Pedro would be a Kood baso for, an enemy to oporato against our Pnclflc coast.

Sixth Prize, $5, to W* W. Westcrly, of 668 1-2 Fulton St., ^rooklyn. So far as we know, eacli one of the prize-winners is an ama? teur artist, and this goes to show what latent ability we may liavc stored away in our make-up 1111 kho.vn to oursclves. The great secret iri writing an advertisement is in knowing what you are'writing about, then make a plain statcment of facts, the same as if you were tclling a friend of some event. To write a good advertisement about Duffy's Pure Malt Whis? key, a person should know the ef? fect it has oil nervous and run dpwn cases, and jn cases of cold, bronchitis- and lung trouble. One can then realizc the strcngthening effect it has on body, brainjyid nerve. and the aid it gives to the vital forccs, thus cnabling a person to write with a clear mind a concisc, forceful argument. We are always ready to pur? chase at * what it is worth any good idea or advertisement th^t is sent ns by any readers of this paper. Duffy Malt Whiskey Co., Rochester, N. Y.
