THE UNION TRUST COMPANY MAIN 1578 120 EAST MARKET STREET Indianapolis First — YOU remember the hot days of last summer when suffering humanity all over the country pleaded for relief and large cities everywhere were experiencing terrible Ice famines? In dianapolis alone had no shortage. The large supply held by the Polar Ice and Fuel Company could have been sold and shipped at a larger price than that paid here. No babies suffered —no food per ished —no hospital went without ice In ndianapolis on account of lack of ice. Foresight and a willingness to gamble ith the weather precludes the possl lity of an ice famine in Indianapolis. \Ve now have twenty thousand tons of ice in storage. We know this is more than we will need, but it is there for your protection in case of an emergency. Polar Ice and Fuel Cos. 25 Cash and Carry Stations SHIRLEY BROS. CO., Inc.

IRISH IN DENIAL OF CONNECTION WITH MURDER Statement Issued on Killing of Sir Henry Wilson by Assassins. DUBLIN. June 24.—80th the regu lar and Irregular branches of the Irish Republican army today disclaimed any connection with the assassination of Field Marshal Sir Henry H. Wilson at London. The following statement was issued at the headquarters of the irregular branch: “The shooting of Sir Henry Wilson was not done at the instance of the Irish Republican army. If It had been, the Irish Republican army would acknowledge the fact. “The death of Sir Henry Wilson is to be deplorqd, not because it occurred apparently at the hands of Irishmen, but because he was a victim of the Im perial policy pursued by the British Government In Ireland. There Is up use trying to saddle the responsibility on Ireland or any group of Irish peo ple. It would be hypocritical to con demn such actions as the shooting of Sir Henry Wilson, while the causes, which provoke such deeds, remain. "Scenes of outrage and carnage in the north are the result of British In stigation, British connivance and Brit ish duplicity. In all this Sir Henry Wilson played a part that time will define. And he played It not for Ulster but for his imperial masters.” RAISE CITYFARE ON INTERURBANS Ten-Cent Charge to Local Passengers.

DOG HILL PARAGRAFS Cricket Hicks, one of onr leading beau bramm/s, had the misfortune to lose AN Indianapolis woman recently asked her washerwoman how she found time to do her own washing. “I don't, ma'am," replied Sally. "I can’t afford to. I send my washing to the laundry." Purely from the standpoint of cost, what do you think of this home washing business? We’ll leave out the disagreeableness of it! Wbat does the home washing cost? We can't tell you. You can't tell without putting in a cost ac counting system.

Total it up and figure the interest on your investment. Then estimate de preciation, for everything on your list is wearing out. Find out about how much supplies like soap, starch, and bluing cost per week. Put down an amount to cover gas and electricity. Make an allow ance for repairs to machinery and for clothes lost or damaged. If you employ a laundress her wages, meals, and carfare must be counted in. If your wife does her own washing her time and work should be put down as worth something. If you have ever worried lest a servant should in jure herself while operating laundry machinery, yoji his nice, new straw hat Sunday morning. At the time of the accident he was stroll ing along the lane when a puff of wind blew his hat off, and a cow se'zed it be fore he could perfect Its rescue.

All right. Add it up! * * * Very likely your wife is one of the thousands of Indianapolis women who are convinced that the standard modern laundries of this city are doing the high quality of work that good housewives insist upon.

It doesn’t cost too much. For most people it costs less than the wearisome old-fashioned way. There are different classes of laundry service.
