Across a table on which reposed a lonely but highly sym bolic egg, the housewives of Chicago and tho egg dealers, through their representa tives, met here today to discuss the boy cott being conducted by the women. The conference las.ted two hours and there was no compromise. Tho boycott will continue. Tho wholesalers said that the high prices were duo to a shortage and that the boycott mteht bo a good thing for all concerned, as the abstemi ousness of tho boycotters would lighten the task of the dealers who haven't eggs enough to go around. The women declared that the boycott would be pushed with- vigor to enlist women throughout the country In addi tion to the 100,000 said to be In tho ranks In Illinois.

Nov. . - Although Hear Admiral Cradock commanding th British ships In Mexican waters, ranks Itoar Admiral Fletcher by virtue of sen iority, the British commander has noti fied the American admiral that he wishes to .subordinate himself In co-operating with tho United States forces. Tills fresh evidence of friendly feeling and hearty co-operation between tho two gov ernments was received hero today with manifest gratification. Any developments In the Mexican sit uation seem to be moving under the sur face. There appeared to be no change In the diplomatic situation, and no indi cation that the American government was dovlating from its attitude of caro fut watching and patient waiting for tho elimination of Huerta. Ail officials in immediate charge of the situation were away from the capi tal. President Wilson and Secretaries Garrison and Daniels were in New York to attend the army and navy foot ball game, and Secretary Bryan Was speak- Inar In Pnttntrtwn. Pa. Hear Admiral Cradock has been advised by Hear Admiral Fletcher of the extent of the planB adopted by the American commander to safeguard British as well as American Interests at Tamplco and at Tuxpam. The action of the British admiral in sailing away from Tamplco Is taken as evidence that he was satis fled with the adequacy of these plans. The return of the battleship New Hampshire to Vera Cruz from tho north ern pll fields was interpreted to Indicate an abatement of the tension In that quar ter at, present. The principal effort of the naval commanders acting with the Amorlcan consular officers on tho oil coast is now being directed to securing such an understanding with the constitu tionalist leaders as well Insure tho safety of foreign llfo and property.

Newspaper advertising of tho first grade developed In papers like Tho Hee, has outgrown Us purely local image and you now nee manufacturers and dis tributors carrying on extensive newspaper advertising t'aui palgns In various cities and s-c-tlons and often over the wholo country, to the end that all who read may lenow the merits of their wares.

And, If you are a merchant and dou't happen to carry any of that particular kind of mer chandise. It la a very good kind to have on your shelves and to display on your counters and In your windows because nowadays people know what thoy want and will patronize thoso merchants who have It.
