A Farmer Cured of Rheumatism
"A man living on a farm near here
came in a short time ago completely
doubled up with rheumatism. I hand
ed him a bottle of Chamberlain's
Liniment and told him to use it free
ly," says C. P. Rayder, Patten Mills,
N. Y. "A few days later he walked
into the store as straight as a string
and handed me a dollar saying, "Give
me another bottle of Chamberlain's
Liniment; I want it in the house all
the time for it cured me." Weyrich

JEWEL DECLARES RAIL
WAGE CUT UNJUSTIFIED
Chicago. April 6. Closing his ar
guments 'before the United States
railroad labor board in protest
against a -wage decrease for shop
crafit employes, B. M. Jewell, repre
senting the shop-craft men, declared
living expenses were as high now as
when railroad representatives de
clared their employes should be well
taken care of in regard to wages.
In quoting from statements made
hy W. D. Higgins, representing the
western railroads and John G. Wal
ber, representing the eastern rail
roads. Mr. Jewell declared that Mr.
Higgins had stated in January, 1918,
in the first hearing before the board
in Washington, that shop men who
were receiving less than $150 a
month should not receive a wage re
duction. He also quoted Mr. Walber
as saying that the cost of living had

ADS PROPERLY IN
You'll Dispose of Your Property
Quicker and Get Better Besults
if You Give Details.
Disappointments in results is oftenl
the lot of people who occasionally
insert a small want ad in a news-
DaDer. Invariaulv. thev will lav the
blama on the newspaper, beliving
that it cannot get results through its
columns. Seldom do such people
realize that the fault lies chiefly in
the way they worded their ads when
they handed them in.
The Chicago Tribune analyzed this
problem recently in a very efficient
and interesting manner. They adopt
ed a slogan and passed it on to their
advertisers that "The more you tell,
the-quicker you sell!" To illustrate
their point they ran a full page of
small ad "examples" and proved how
the lack of proper wording meant
the downfall of a want ad.
For instance, here is one of the
Mrs. R. ran this want ad to bring
her a maid:
Maid White for general housework.
Phone Oak Park 0000.
But nary a maid appeared on Mrs.
R's domestic horizon. She remember
ed that the Tribune had advised the
use of well-written want ads with
information included. She decided
to try it. So she inserted this want
Maid White for general housework,
in pleasant detached apartment; 4
in family: present maid leaving after
three years' service. Phone Oak Park
0000 or call at 000 0 S. Elmwood Ave.,
blocks from L.
Not merely one maid appeared in
response to this second want ad, but
FIFTEEN. "Ho, Ho!" said Mrs. R..
It is not because the ad was more
effective; there were more girls seek
ing a place that day." So a little
later when another maid had gone
the way of her unsatisfactory prede
cessors, Mrs. R. again ran the little
cripple want ad (the first shown
above) and again not a maid re
sponded. Illustrating the truth of
the Tribune's want ad slogan pretty

The tendency of medical science is
toward .preventative measures. It is
easier and better to prevent than to
cure. Pneumonia, one of the most
dangerous diseases that medical men
have to contend with, often follows
a cold or attack of the grip. The
cold prepares the system for the re
ception and development of the pneu
monia germ. The longer the cold
hangs on, the greater the danger.
Take Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
as soon as the first indication of a
cold appears so as to get rid of it
with the least possible delay. It is
folly to risk an attack of pneumonia
when this remedy may be obtained
for a trifle. Weyrich & Hadraba.
