The services of 12 men are required to produce one of the big campaign banners. Two men prepare the strips on which the lettering la done. Two more look after the lettering of these strips, the painting of the names of clubs or as sociations ordering the banners, the captions for the portraits and the of fices for which the nominees are to contend. Two men work on the centerpieces, generally consisting of an eagle and a shield. One man devotes himself to the special portraits, and the others assenable the varions parts, sew the strips together, and give the finishing touches to the banner. The "portrait man" scorns to do any other work than the main portrait. The rest he calls "filling in." By work ing on the same faces day after day this artist becomes so skillful that he can paint the portrait of a candidate (to uso the words of one painter) "in the dark" and do It as true to life as the standard of the campaign banner Industry requires. ' Knew Money by Onion 8mell. That an 111 wind, even an onion smell, blows somebody good was shown la police court, Brooklyn, by Simon Silverman, an onion peddler. Silverman missed his roll of $32. A woman told him she had just passed two men, one of whom was saying: "Yon found It; you keep It." The peddler called a policeman, who took the pair to court. On one $19 lq bills was found. The policeman asked Silverman if he could Identify his money. "Don't give them to me, Mr. Police man," exclaimed the peddler. "If they smell of onions they're mine." The onion odor convinced the cop. Silverman got the money and the pris oner was held. Daily Thought. There are certain times In our life when we find ourselves In circumstan ces that not only press upon us, but seem to weigh us down altogether.

J.—'Satisfactory so lution of internal questions having an International bearing must be an inte gral part of the general program for the rehabilitation of Mexico, the Mexi can members of the Joint commission were informed on Wednesday by their American colleagues. The American commissioners took the stand that no satisfactory settle ment of the border problem can be reached until there Is evidence of the intention of the Mexican government to so handle such affairs that there will be no occasion for constant diplo matic correspondence with other gov ernments. The matters especially referred to by the American commissioners were those affecting the status and rights of foreigners resident In Mexico and of foreigners who have Invested capital In Mexican enterprises. It was learned that Luis Cabrera, head of the Mexican commission, is dealing with the committee represent ing a large group of mining concerns In Mexico In his capacity as minister of finance, rather than as one of the commissioners. He expects to meet the mining men's representatives in New York for a conference. ol de SWEDEN STRICTLY NEUTRAL. Will Not Take Sides in Controversy Between World Powers.

All her actions since that time have borne out that proclamation and all rumors or accusations that she has done, or intends to do, anything in consistent with this attitude are due either to failure to comprehend her situation or to some less creditable reason. "Whenever Sweden has taken any step displeasing one or other belliger ent power her action has been dictated solely by consideration of the king dom's own necessities and of its fu ture welfare and not by any partisan We hope sincerely that the reasons. belligerents will not make it impos sible for us to maintain this attitude unto the end."

"Germany has definitely decided to apply to President Wilson," the ar ticle reads, "to use his good offices in suing for peace with the allies.

The people of the United States are paying war prices for a great many ar ticles of everyday use because those articles are not produced at home. In other words, they are having a prac tical demonstration at so much per of the democratic free trade idea. The Idea is that we ought to buy where we can buy cheapest It may have worked In the old days, but It doesn't work now, because all the cheap sources of supply are closed. If the old Repub lican Idea of protecting Industry intiur own country had been followed con sistently for the last ten or fifteen years we should have had factories busy In the production of all these things, and ôur people would be able to purchase them at reasonable prices.
