There exists now a new, compelling
reason for buying Goodyear tirea. It re
sulta from War conditions.
These leading tirea built of extra-fine
rubber, in the same way aa alwaya are
gelling today at June pricea.
You will find today a very wide difference
between moat tire prices and Goodyeara.
Due to Quick Action
Kurly in August wlien war liegan Hie
World's rubber markets seemed closed to ua.
Rubber prices doublet! almost over night.
Men could see no way to pay for ruhlier
abroad, and no way to bring it in. We, like
others in that panic were forced to higher
. prices. But we have since gone back to prices
we charged before the war, and this is how
We did it :
We had men in London and Singapore when
the war broke out. The larger part of the
world's rubber supply comes through there.
We cabled them to buy up the pick of the rub
ber. They bought before the advance 1,500,
000 pounds of the finest rubber there.
Nearly all this is now on the way to us.
And it means practically all of the extra-grade
rubber obtainable abroad.
Today we have our own men in Colombo,
Singapore and Para. Those are the world's
Chief sources of rubber. So we are pretty well
asc.ired of a constant supply, and our pick of
the best that's produced.
We were first on the ground. We were quick
est in action. As a result, we shall soon have in

MAY FIGHT ONE ANOTHER
Each Invsntion Now Is Preparad to
Pull the Other's Sting, but Their
Actual Value Is Yet te
Be Demonstrated.
Every modern war lias beeu (ought
with new weapons, aud (or the last
century there have been countless In
ventions (or the currying on u( war
fare in a particularly destructive urn li
fter, with the philanthropic intent that
war was taat becoming so horrible und
terrible thta It must soon pass away
ron, the (ace of the eurth, says the
Philadelphia Hjbllc Ledger.
But it happened that as soon as a
particularly horrible coutrivunca waa
tnvon'.ed and introduced into armies j
and ii. nica luventorH immediately
busied themselves by offsetting and I
discounting its probable effect. Con- !
aequently war not only haB not passed
away, tiul we still have it with ua.
Thus li li that each big wur, after be
lag heralded aa the world's last con-
flagra i ion, is found upon examiuaUon
to be false, and the end of war is not
yet arrived.

been tried only under laboratory con

Now Inferior Grade Coat Double
About the only crude rubber available now
for many makers is inferior. In ordinary times,
the best tire makers refuse it. Much of it had
been rejected. But that "off rubber" now sella
for much more than we paid for the best
The results arc these:
Tire prices in general are far in advance of
Goodyears. And many tire makers, short of
supplies, will be forced to use second-grade
rubber.
Be Careful Now
In Goodyears we pledge you the same grade
tire as always. And that grade won for Good
years the top place in Tiredom the largest sale
in the world.
And, for the time being, our prices are the
same as tx-fore the war. W'e shall try to keep
them tliecp.
We accept no exeessire orders, but dealers
will be kept supplied. And we charge them,
until further notice, only ante-bellum prices.
That mean that Goodyeara the beat
tires built- are selling way below other tirea.
submarine. which was a dream In
1865, Is owned by the navy of the
smallest power. It is true that single
submarines are not expected to ac
complish much In a real struggle, bo
the larger navies of the great powers
have fleets of submarines. The aero
plane and the dirigible balloon are to
be found In the possession of all arm
ies Ip Europe today, yet they, too, are
only expected to be of real service
when they are possessed In large num
bers. The airships and the submarines are
the waapB of modern warfare. Like
the little insect, while they have a
powerful sting, they are very vulner
able, and may be easily crushed and
rendered powerless.
Aeroplane and Wireless.
In the recent smaller wars, aero
planes have been used to a limited ex
tent, and this use has been so much
limited that their real efficiency is ex
pected to be finally determined by
the present war.
It Is much the same with the wire
less telegraph. While it was used in
the KusBo-Japanese wur of ten years
ago, the apparatus was still rudimen
tary, and the Installations too few,
while the ruuge of the apparatus was
too limited to show the greatest effi
ciency. In the intervening decade, bow
ever, great advance has beeu made in
wireless. It Is now possible aud, In
deed, is a custom every day, to send
aud receive messages from a distance
of more thau ,000 miles. This, then,
is a new and Important factor in naval
operations, as waa seen by the censor
ship put over the great sending sta
lions on this side of the Atlantic by
the United States authortlles.
Wireless has also been successfully
attached to aeroplanes.
The submarine was In existence In
1904, but it was a very different sea
wasp to that which England, Prance
aud Uermany are using today. Yet its
real value Is yet to be determined, and
It Is expected that this demonstration
will come during the present conflict.
Rapid Increase of Submarines
At the time of the Spanlsb-Anierlcan
war there were only five submarines
in all the navies of the world.
The latest editiou of llraasey's Naval
Annual for this year glvea the number
of submarines in the various navies,
and shows what interest is being
taken in the wasp of the sea. Great
Uritatu has 76 built, and Is building 20
more; Uermany, who only began build-
e hud grown on It. A scientific ays

i. under direction of Lord Kltch

as then bunded over to the fellaheen

ear the land was washed, and a crop
if rice was grown, giving a satisfac
tory yield. After the rice crop the
suit distribution was measured, and
thu percentage waa considerably re
duced To the great asloulsbineut of

while tbe United States has 2, and la

owns 18, and is building two. Yet the
submarine Is still an unknown quan
tity in warfare.
Submarine In War.
Many of tbe early submarines ara
small and probably of little efficiency,
and Prance has numerous types about
which little is known by the outside
world. The German submarines are
said to be built aloug tbe Holland
lines, while the Russian submarinas
are said to follow one or more ot tbe
French types.
Tbe submarine, from a romantic
viewpoint, should be a great factor Id
deciding a naval engagement, but the
fact remains that up to the present
time It has done nothing to prove lta
value. It was believed that the moral
effect of the submarine would be al
most as important aa its physical ef
fect upon au enemy'a warship, but
this belief has not been Justified up to
the present moment.
There were notions that there would
be terrific fighlB under the seas by
submurine meeting submarine and da
atroyiug each other. Rut it has beeo
found that when submerged tbe sub
marine is aa blind as the traditional
bat. Its crew cannot see any object
under water, and is compelled to re
sort to the use of the periscope, which
emergen unostentatiously above the
water, in order to see its own course.
It Is known that the periscope Is
the eye of the submarine, and natural
ly uttentlou has been paid to the best
way of destroying this vital part ol
their boats.
The designers of tbe submarine did
not count upon it beiug seen. It was
believed that it would go upon lta way,
dealing death without observation, al
though its periscope does make m
alight wake on the water, and when
submerged there are telltale bubbles.
Rut it has been discovered that (ron
a certain height an observer may trace
the course of a submerged submarine
with as great accuracy as it it waa
tunning on tbe surface. Tbe dirigible
balloon and the aeroplane now cao
ferret out the sneaking submarine, and
they both are supposed to be armed to
destroy the warship that moves like a
flab.
which under the ordinary system pro
vailing in the country would ha'vs
taken thre or four years to accora
pllsh. Cotton Is now, therefore, being
satisfactorily grown on a fair propor
tion of this area, and it la expected
that It will bring from $76 to 100 aa
acre.
