- rpHAT'S OUR IDEA in making
1' CAMELS the Quality Cigarette.
. - , . '
Why, just buy Camels and look at the package!
It's the' best packing science has devised to keep
cigarettes fresh and full flavored for your taste.
Heavy paper outside secure foil wrapping inside
and the revenue stamp over the end to seal the pack
age and keep it air-tight.
And note this! There's nothing flashy about the
Camel package. No extra wrappings that do not
improve the smoke. Not a cent of needless expense
that must come out of the quality of the tobacco.
Camels wonderful and exclusive Quality wins m
merit alone. '
Because, men smoke Camels who want the
taste and fragrance of the finest tobaccosexpertly
blended. Men smoke Camels for Camels smooth,
refreshing mildness and their freedom from ciga ,
retty aftertaste.
Camels are made for men who think for them

THE New Light-Six Coupe-Roadster, while it holds a
strong, appeal for any prospective user, is particularly
suited to die requirements of the doctor, the salesman,
the field engineer or any other man. whose professional or
business duties demand a light-weight, economically-operated
car for all-season us& v
In reliability it is traditionally Studebaker. And the measure
.of public appreciation of this and other Studebaker models is
indicated by the fact that Studebaker (with the exception of
one manufacturer of a well known and very low priced car)
led i the world, during the first six months of 1921, in the
number of automobiles produced and sold.

THE DEVIL'S TOWER
THIS peculiar freak of uuture
which has become one of Uncle
Sum's National Monuinentn, Is located
near Sundance Id northeastern Wyo
ming. It Is a gigantic rock, 600 feet
high, probably 00 feet In diameter at
the top and a mile around at the
base. Rising sheer from the level
plain, It Is visible In some directions
for almost a hundred miles.
Undoubtedly this tower wus useful
to primitive races as well us to eiirly
pioneers as a lundmurU. Tls thought
that during the subsequent Indian
wurs members o( the Sioux unci Crow
tribes directed their marches by the
uld of fires and other signals fliiHhcd
from tills ever-visible tower.
As one approaches this monstrous
rock, his amazement and awe In
creases, because it scums Incredible
that uny force of Nature could huve
carved this solitary .monument.
To climb to the top would 'seem an
Impossibility, yet It Is said that a
number of years ago a man and a
womun accomplished this feat suc
cessfully. Now that the war Is behind us and
Uncle Sam has more time to devote
to home matters, It seems not unlikely
that he mny deem It advisable to
send an expedition to the top of his
new possession and cause a series ol
stairways to be constructed for the
accommodation and convenience of
venturesome tourists bent dn getting
acquainted with their own country.

THE LINCOLN MEMORIAL
THOSE who have visited foreign
lands say thut no other similar
structure compares favorably, in either
size, beauty or locution, with the grcut,
simple uiid udmlrably-sltiiated monu
ment eriv:ed by the people of Amer
ica, In tin. iiipitul of the nation, as
a fitting tribute to the memory of the
kindness and the greatness of our
Lincoln.
Near the White House and the
Washington Monument, and between
the Capitol building nnd the National
cemetery, this memorial Is destined
to become one of the most-visited of
all the public buildings of the world.
The building Is 202 feet long, 1".-'
feet wide and surrounded by a row
of marble columns, several feet In di
ameter nt the base and 44 feet high.
In the center of the interior is a
coloRsiii stntue of Lincoln, In a seated
position. Including the base, It Is 30
feet high. It weighs 175 tons. It took
twenty marble cutters eighteen
months to carve this statue.
In each of the side walls are set
monumental bronze tablets one of
Lincoln's famous Gettysburg address,
the other of his masterful second In
augural address, while between these
and the statue is a row of 30 columns,
representing the states which existed
when Lincoln died; on the walls above
are 48 memorial wreaths, supported by
eagles, representative of the stutes of
today. At either end Is a massive
painting 12 feet high and 60 feet
long.

WHERE WASHINGTON
WORSHIPED
HISTORY shows that .the plot of
ground on which stands Christ
church, In the quulnt, old-fushloned
town of Alexandria, Virginia, first
settled about 1005, was acquired In
1704 for the sum of one penny.
Around this sacred relic of by-gone
days perhaps revolves more patriotic
sentiment than that which surrounds
any other of the many old und his
toric churches In this uatlon. An Iron
fence, set upon an ancient brick wall,
encloses a grassy plot which is dotted
with many quaint grave stones and
also contains the church itsolf..
Although certain interior changes
and renewals necessarily have been
made, the general appearance of the
church Is practically the same as In
the days of old. The same chancel
rail, communion table, reading desk
and choirs and brass candle holders
are In use, while among the relics In
the vestry may be seen the first bible
used made In Scotland In 1770, and
the long-handled purses In which the
otTerlngs of the parishioners were de
posited. It was to this church, both before
and after the revolution as well as
after retiring fronj the presidency,
that General George Washington came
from Mount Vernon, In his "conch and
four", to worship. The pew occupied
by the Washington family, as well as
the one used by -General Robert E.
Lee, are maintained In exactly the
same condition as when used by them,

UNCLE SAM'S FUMIGATING
VATS
SO RAPIDLY does the world move
now-a-days, so numerous and va
ried are the wonders which are
irii nv ihe Ingenuity of our ex
perts in various lines and so quietly
1 the work CTIed U Jeojienuy
Happens fliat the general 'public Isiflfws
but little- of the marvels that are
among us. .
For Instance, down on the Texas
border at Laredo, to be exact the
United States Department of Agricul
ture operates a fumigating plant or
vat which Is sufficiently large to ac
commodate a train of fifteen freight
cars at one time.
Freight cars arriving In the States
from Old Mexico are Infected with
live, pink bollworm a pest which
Weds and devours the uurlpened pods
of the cotton plant. If permitted to
enter and scatter In this country, It
would, provided It gained much head
way, create losses running Into the
millions of dollars annually.
To prevent this loss and preserve
the crop, therefore, such cars are un
ceremoniously shunted Into these vats
and the unwelcome bollworms aboard
accorded a knock-out reception.
This plant resembles a long, brick
shed. After the cars are received,
the doors are closed and the plant
Is flooded with a gas, generated on
the spot, the fumes of which are sure
death to bollworms. At the end of
an hour or more, the gas is drawn off,
the cars removed and sent on their
way nnd the plant is ready for the
next Incoming train.
. Other similar, but smaller, plant
are located at various coast points.

THE PLYMOUTH ROCK
WHEN the Pilgrim Fathers landed
from the Mayflower at Plymouth,
Massachusetts, they stepped out upon
a boulder which has become famous
as the Plymouth Rock.
Tills rock is said to weigh seven
tons, possess a greenish hue, to be
very hard and Its surface capable of
taking a high polish. Oval In shape
and having a flat top, It offered a
made-to-order landing place for the
forefathers. Scientists declare that it
was undoubtedly curried by a glacier,
from some strange and distant land.
Like most movable things of pecul
iar historic value, a loving public has
been wont to disturb tills valued relic
and change Its location. In 1774,
while plans were under way to move
the rock to the town square, it was
discovered that the action of the ele
ments hud separated the upper and
lower portions. Nevertheless, the top
portion was moved. In 183460 years
later It was again moved, this time
to a locution In front of Pilgrim Hull
and Inclosed with nn Iron fence. Here
It remained for forty-six years. Then
It was decided that tlie rock should
he returned to Its original location.
Accordingly, after a separation of
more than one hundred years, the up
per portion of the rock was carefully
placed over the lower portion, where
It now reposes under an ornate can
opy. Here, this treasured shrine, to which
come visitors from every clime, shall
undoubtedly remain for all time, look
ing much the same as when its side
was first grazed' by the good ship
Mayflower.

HOME OF WASHINGTON
ON THE peaceful and picturesque
shore of the River Potomac, soma
sixteen miles south of our national
capital, stands Mount Vernon the
home of The Fa'ther of His Country.
It was so named In honor of Ad
miral Vernon of the British navy and
It-Is to the efforts of the Mount Ver
non Ladles' association of the Union
that the citizens of America are in
debted for the preservation of this
National shrine.
Occupying a site of great charm,
commanding a sweeping view of broad
river and pleasing landscape, Is this
grand old mansion to which the young
officer came to live shortly after his
marriage and to which he retired from
the presidency, to spend his days in
a manner befitting one of his rank,
means and time, and where he died
In 1700.
The structure was built in 1743
and contnins many of the original
furnishings and relics of the family.
Clustered about it are the barn, coach
house, spinning house, meat house, ice
house, wash house, kitchen and other
outbuildings. Nearby Is a remarkable,
old-fashioned garden, with quaint,
oddly-designed spaces set off by box
hedges, said to be 150 years old. In
this garden Is a coffee tree said to
have been planted in 1824 by General
Lafuyette and cuttings from a willow
tree which it is claimed were brought
from the grave of the great Napoleon
at St. Helena.
Enclosed in two marble sarcophagi,
In a small and simple structure within
the grounds, rest the remains of Gen
eral George Washington and his con
sort Martha.
Important Experiment
Domestic production of chaulmoogra
oil, long used In Asia for the treat
ment of leprosy, Is made possible
through a consignment of seeds of the
Hydnocarilus tree, sent fromiam to
the bureau of plant Industry. They
will be etperlmentally propagated In
Florid. Porto Rico and Hawaii. Th
oil formerly was obtained only from
eeds of another tree grown in Burma
