The paper situation is getting
worse. Some grades of paper
have gone up 100 per cent, in a
little more than sixty days, and
many grades from 50 to 75 per
cent and still going.
The newspapers were among
the last to feel the effects, but
now that the thing m has struck
them, it has hit them like a cy
clone. And the enormous in
crease in the price of paper is
only one item. The Review or
Reviews aptly sums up the situa
tion: The newspaper publisher is, in
deed, hard hit by war conditions
in many other items of supplies
besides the basic one of paper
stock. Practically everything go
ing into the manufacture of a
daily newspaper has increased in J
price from 10 to 50 per cent ;
inks, owing to the advance in the
cost of acids and dyes, from 300
to 3,000 per cent, f type, owing to
the higher cost of lead, tin and
antimony; eyen the rubber and
felt, blankets wrapped around the
press rollers add their quota to
the increased "cost of living" of
The most serious feature of
the whole situation is, however,
that there is danger of a paper
famine. One of the chief factors
in the recent discontinuance of
the London Daily Standard, after
a career of sixty years, was the
higher price of paper stock and
the difficulty of obtaining it at
all in England. E-Town News.
A Symbol of Health,
The Pythagorians of Ancient Greece
ate simple food, practiced temperance
and purity. As a badge they used the
five pointed star which they regarded
as a symbol of health. A red five
pointed star appears on each package
of Chamberlain's Tablets, and still
fulfills its ancient mission as a symbol
of health. If you are troubled with
indigestion, -billiousness, or constipa
tion, get a package of these tablets
from your druggist. You will be sur
prised at the quick relief which they
afford. Obtainable at Paull Drug Co.
The world's champion artificial
fly-maker is claimed by Miss Alice
Sherwin Coleman, of New York.
For more than a decade she has
been making flies for anglers.

the fact that she and her assist
ants make $400,000 worth of fles
for fishing enthusiasts every
Miss Coleman make3 300 dif
ferent varieties of flies regularly
summer and winter, special
order bringing the number up to
1,500 varieties altogether; for
Buch is Miss Coleman's reputa
tion that exacting fishermen in
the wilds of America sometimes
catch strange flies that hover
over particular streams and send
them alive in a ventilated bottle
so that she may study and re
produce them accurately.
It is a curious fact that Miss
Coleman has had no training
whatever in making flies for
fishing.She is articularly self
taught, and relied for knowledge
on a few hints and some vivid
descriptions given by vetpran
anglers.. The rest she has shad
to work out for herself.
One reason for the big advance
in all lines of manufactured prod
ucts in the United States is that
the factories cannot produce up
to the demand.
