TRUTHFUL PUBLICITY
WILL SAVE NATION
Much is written relative to
blue sky laws and the ade
quate protection of investors,
but the real solution of the
problem is. in proper publici
ty. Legislators may pass the
laws requiring certain reports
from the companies engaged
in the sale of securities; they
may refuse outright to grant
charters to business asocia
tions, and there are many
ways in which the state could
make the promoters or com
oanies realize their public re
SDonsibilitv. Still all of these
are not sufficient to provide
the means of enlightening the
people so that they may use
their own judgment with re
spect to their financial trans
actions. Abraham Lincoln is report
ed to have said "tell the peo
ple the truth and the nation
is saved," and nothing is
truer than this of our mining
in Arizona. 'Mining all over
the state is being boosted and
boomed, but it is boosted on
truthful statements; it has
been realized by the people
in the state the harm that
comes from untruthful boom-
The question does not lie
with the legislators entirely,
but lies in the education of
the people as to the proper
analysis of the stocks they
buy or the investments they
make. If it is necessary to
have laws for the protection
of investors, let them deal
specifically with the responsi
bility of the organization to
wards the state in the char
tering of it. Enlightenment
is a court for all of the evils
of society and the only court.
ASSOCIATION 10
MI IMPOSITION
(Associated Press)
ST. LOUIS, June 8. Special precau
tions are to be taken by the National
Conventions Association to prevent
imposition on visitors to St. Louis dur
ing the Democratic National Conven
tion. At the request of the Associa
tion, the Executive Committee of the
business Men's League adopted reso
lutions declaring visitors to be partic
ular guests and specifying a desire for
their protection.
All taxicab, jitney bus, and other
vehicle rates as well as room rates in
large and small hotels will be pubished
by the Association, and it will operate
a service bureau in Union Station,
where visitors can get whatever in
formation or asistance they may need.
The object of these precautions is
to obviate .the least chance of imposi
tion. The association expects to go
so far as to take up any complaint of
any visitor and prosecute.

THE USE OF NIL
GUNS ON SHORE
(Associated Press!
PARIS, June S. The use of naval
guns ashore in the present war, it is
pointed out by a naval expert, is not
a mere expedient, resulting from acci
dental or incidental circumstances, but
as a well defined reason in the greater
initial speed of the projectile of a naval
gun and the consequently longer range
than that of Held artillery. The new
services they render are due to the
aeroplane which gives the gunner on
land longer ranges of fire than he used
to get.
The 15-inch naval guns with which
the Germans occasionally oomoaru
Dunkirk and Nancy are believed to be
from the ships lying idle in the Kiel
canal. They are utilized because they
carry farther than the big mortars.
The type of the naval guns would
have been more commonly used on
land for field work had it not been so
much heavier and more difficult to
manipulate than the shorter range
field and siege guns. Seven inch to
eight inch naval pieces may be mount
ed on railroad trucks, but the recoil
of the lrager calibres is so violent as
to require a solid concrete founda
tion. .
IWIUS ENTITLED TO
MORE THAN SINGLES
(Associated Press)
BERLIN, June S. A mother who
gives birth to twins, or to triplets, in
Germany is entitled not only to the
"nursing money" and the "weekly war
assistance" which the government pro
vides for its needy women, but may
collect the prescribed sum in duplicate
or triplicate according to the number
of children born, according to a ruling
established by the Imeprial Insurance
Bureau.
The decision was the outcome of a
suit of a Berlin woman, who, giving
jirth to twins, was refused nursing
money and the weekly war allowance
.or more than one child The insur
ance branch bureau in her district
held that the law permitted only one
payment regradless of the number of
children born.
The imperial bureau, which controls
all the municipal branches, holds that
it is of the utmost importance for ev
ery mother to be nourished in the very
best possible way; and that two or
three children require more nourish
ment from the mother than one.
STANDARD OIL CO.
WIDIUS DRILLERS
(Associated Press)
PEKING, June 8. The Stanadar Oil
Company has withdrawn all its pros-,
pectors and equipment from Shensi
province and has definitely abandoned
the boring of wells in search of oil.
The last of its drilling crew has re
turned to Peking, and will sail for the
United States in a few days.
While there is still a possibility that
the Standard Oil Company and the Chi
nese government may reach an agree
.nent to conduct some further prospec
ting work some time in the future,
there is believed to be little likelihood
hat such action will be taken soon.
No announcement has been made as
to the success the American company
has had in its exploitation work, but
it is reported that the results of the
drilling were disappointing.

In the Placer Belt of Quarlzite and

is testing the Shumate holdings, and
another company is entering the field
with machinery to begin operating.
Auto trucks are plying at a lively rate
between Bouse and the placer fields,
and it is reported that this character
of mining will prove surprising in re

BIA PEARSON HELD EVERY
TRUMP IN A GAME OF BRIDGE
Those folks from Kentuck certainly
are some people.- Virginia Pearson,
the handsome William Fox star, proves
the assertion.
When old Colonel Pearson trained
his beautiful Virginia, back home in
Louisville, he taught the girl all the
things a bright beauty who was going
to set out to conquer ought to know.
This may constitute a case of lese
mejesty in Kentucky, but the only real
Kentucky institution in which Vir
ginia Pearson takes no interest and
for which she has no liking is the
mint julip.
Colonel Pearson made his big, love
ly daughter a skilled horse-woman, a
painter and singer of much capacity.
He taught her a creed of beauty and
of admiration for the beautiful.
AND
Can Play Poker, But
He also taught Virginia to play a
good, brisk game of poker. In the
course of time poker became no long
er fashionable and whist and bridge
vhist became the approved forms of
card-playing. It is about bridge whist
that you are now to be told.
Card players, who are fond of bridge
or Avhist, will appreciate the extra
ordinary hand held by Miss Pearson
during a recent game held at her
home in Fort Lee, N. J.
Miss Pearson and three friends were
playing bridge. They were using two
packs of .cards and had been playing
about two hours, when Miss Pearson,
on looking at her hand was surprised
to find that she held thirteen cards
of the same suit hearts. Her part
ner on looking at his hand was sur
prised to find that it contained twelve
of the diamont suite.
The hands were not played, as the
extraordinary combinations caused too
much talk. They were so interested
that inquiries were started to ascer
tain whether or not such other hands
had ever been knoAvn.
Research revealed the authenticated
fact that in the military cantonment
of Jubulpore, East Indies, in 1863,
four British officers of the Ninety-
first Foot had almost a similar ex
perience. The game was written up
and each officer signed the statement
certifying as to its ccrrectenss.
The cards thejr used on this occa
sion had been played with before and
had been shuffled and cut in the usual
way. When all the fifty-two cards
had been dealt and hands looked at,
the combinations astonished the play
ers. A Remarkable Hand
The dealer had all the thirteen
trumps (spades) ; his partner had elev
eng clubs; his antagonist on the left
had twelve hearts and on his right
were twelve diamonds. That the
dealer's hand should contain thirteen
trumps is extraordinary enough, but
the marvel is increased by the fact
that each of the other three hands
should be made .up so nearly of one
suite only.. This combination of in
probabilities is so extraordinary as to
make the possibility of such a phe
nomenon occurring again in actual
play almost unheard of.
A less authenticated story. was found
in which a dealer had all thirteen
of the trumps, the presumption being
that he took every trick, yet this is not
true.
The dealer according to the story,
trumped his partner's ace, which
started a row and the holder of the
trump suite was thrown out of a win
dow.
Richard A. Proctor, a famous math
ematician, has figured out that the pos
sibilities of one of four players holding
the entire trump suit at whist is as
one hundred and sixty thousand mil
lions to one.
The investigations conducted by
Miss Pearson's friends revealed an
other curious freak in whist. This
case is apparently well atested. It
was that of one suite, spades, coming
up as trumps thirteen times in succes
sion. It was noticed because one play
er had an idea that he was unlucky
with a spade trump, and was so im
pressed as the spade turned repeated
ly that he called the atention of the
othr players to the number of times
it was recurring. ;
This case is accepted by Mr. Proc
tor, who computed the odds against
such a repetition as being more than
JJO.000,000 to one.
More extraordinary, however, are
the odds figured by Mr. Proctor
against a dealer and partner holding
all of the twenty-six red cards and
theih opponents all twenty-six of the
against this are 800,000,000,000,000 to
1, yet in the hand played at Miss Pear
son's home, she and her partner held
all the red cards with the exception of
one the seven of diamonds.
Miss Pearson has preserved the
cards with which this most extraor
dinary game was played and will use
IB SIOPS VISITORS
10 STRATFORD-ON-AVON
(Associated Press)
STRATFORD-ON-AVON, June 8.
Shakespeare's birthplace was visited
by only 23,000 persons during the past
year as compared with 37,000 in the
preceding year, and approximately 50,-
000 in years of .peace.
The diminution of visitors from
America was most marked, only 254
having signed the register album as
against 8,000 the year preceding and
an average of over 11,000 during the
five years prior to the war. The pres
sure of the war also brought about a
reduction in the number of admission's
to Anne Hathaway's cottage and New
Place.
The trustees of Shakespeare's birth
place at their annual meeting elected
the Earl ot Plymouth a life trustee in
place of the late Lord Ronald Suther-
land-Gower.
Sir Sidney Lee, who presided, ex
pressed the confident anticipation that
American visitors would come in their
ordinary numbers when the war was
over.

of any amount in excess of that sum.
The rest must be deposited by the em
ployer in a city savings bank to the

Deafness is caused by an inflamed condi

you have a rumbling1 sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed.
Deafness is the result, and unless the in

hearing will be destroyed forever: nine
