proprietary medicine industries.

Tanlac. their principal product. .s prob
ably the most extensively advertised and
the most largely sold proprietary medicine
of its kind in the world, approximately
20.000.000 bottles having been sold
its introduction six years ago.
An instance of the rapid growth and
development of the business with Atlanta
as principal headquarters is the statement
that its products are now advertised i:i
more than seven thousand newspapers in
the United States and Canada, and that
the advertising appropriation for this
year will be in excess of One Million Dol
lars. The success and permanency of the
business is assured from the fact that it
has shown a rapid and substantial in
crease -i each year since its organization,
and the further fact that the busincs: for
the year just past shows an increase of
approximately SO per cent over the pre
RIG FOREIGN DEMAND.
To supply the demand for Tanlac it ha
been necessary to erect two great m dern
Laboratories one at Iatm. Ohi . and
the other at Walkerville, Canada. These
Laboratories represent the last word in
modern construction ami lab ratory
equipment. The two plants have a com
bined floor space of approximately 70,000
square feet, with a combined daily capac
ity of 0O.0OO bottles. Tanlac. which is a
medicine of recognized therapeutic value
and unquestioned merit, is now sold in
practically every city, town and hamlet
throughout the United States and Canada.

WASHINGTON. Jan. 17.-The practi-j
cal centainty that Charles Evans Hughes
will lie secretary of state in the Hardin?
cabinet hn.s led some members of the t-en-atc
in the last few days to take a retro
spective sluice at the views of the former
associate justice, not his views on legal
or political (iiiestioiis, hut his utterances
on foreign policy, which, during the cam
paign had a 'passing value hut which now
will become the basis of American action,
after .March 4.
"It should be i emcmbered," wrote Mr.
Hughes on one occasion, '"that the great
protection against war for a considerable
pciiod of years will be found Hot, in any
toiin of words, that may now be adopted,
however desirable these mav be. but in
economic conditions, which are an assur-i
aiice that for a considerable time at least,
we shall not have a recurrence of world
st: tie. "The danger now lies,"' he added,
'"not in the menace of force employed
to, fiuther imperial designs, hut in the!
disorder due to a break up and the re
moval (it traditional restraints and the
tendency to revolution within states. In
making committments it should lie remem-!
lured that while it is highly important'
that at this time we should realize that'
it is iii aet K-able to promote peace and se-!

Sneaking particularly ci Article 10 Mr.
Hughes said he regarded the guarantee in
Article ten as "a trouble breeder and not
a peace-maker." He declared that he be
lieved it to be "unnecessary and unwise"
and that "there is little ground to suit
pose that it will prevent, war on the con
traiy. it is likely to move iilusionary and
to create disappointment and a sense of
injury and injustice on the part of those
who are led to place confidence in it."
Here is the nataciaph, however, which
makes it possible for Mr. Hughes to ap
proach the Harding campaign view of the
league issue and his own early inclinatio is
toward modification of the present cove
nant of the league: ''I think that it is
:i fallacv to sunnose that helnfnl coopera
tion in the future will be assured by the
attempted compulsion ot an inilcxil'le rule.
Eat her will such cooperation depend
upoti the fostering of linn friendships,
springing from an appreciation of com
munity of ideals, interests and purposes,
and such friendships 'are more likely to
be promoted bv freedom of conference,
than by the effort to create hard and fast
. The foregoing is . sufficiently broad to
permit Mr. Hughes to decide eventually
that freedom of justice without obligation
or committment can be obtained by so.
modifing the covenant as to leave Amer
ica a free hand in every thing yet permit
ting her to sjt as a memner of an organi
zation which is already in operation: or
it mav permit Mr. Hughes to ask other na
tions in the league to join a new associa
tion which has much less specific powers
than the present, league and one that is
Mattel tied after the Hague conferences.
The selection of Mr. Hughes as secre
tary of state is due largely to the fact that
his lecord is general enough and his ut
terances broad enough to give him a free
hand in faking advantage of such -machinery
for international, cooperation as
is already i'i existence or in the setting up
of new 'processes fitted to the campaign
pledges of American freedom of action, in
all international affairs. One thing is
sure neither the I.ode teservationists
pot- the iirecoiicilablcs can claim that Mr.
Hughes's words make it impossible for
him to accent their point of view and
there are plenty of middle-of-the-road
senator who think the Ilmdies mind
will produce a compromise. They expect
him to lead the partv out of the wilder
ness of dissension and turn the thought
and abilitv of the iarty to a solntio i of
the acute business and economic problems

have been submitted, but progress has
been very slow.
Perhaps the chief reason for this has
been the economic factor. Houses which

let or sell at pre-war figures.
Nevertheless, according to govern
ment statistics Mime (Ki.tM Ml new houses
were started in 1020 and the number
contracted for has risen during the year
from 10.40 to l.Tk.'iM.
One striking feature of the effort to
provide hous-s is a housing scheme con
ducted by the office of works, which was
empowered to spend (!.(MH.(MK) jiounds

started in Cainberwell. a south .London

The financial difficulties connected
with the housing problem have been re
