The specific recommenda tions made in the report are similar Ii many respects to the provisions of the United States immigration law, except that no educational require ment is proposed. In some directions the regulations are more strident than the American . . . . : No, sir, I do not mourn tho defeat of any ship subsidy bill, on the contrary, I am strqngly in favor of tho gov .ment doing everything possible to help the Ameri can merchant marine." wktwhih w iinwm rr v r.T I fife IT IS BETTER zW 1 1 TN to buy right onco than wrong jf&k&V&wAl many times jj fitsaracrr- (sC0n- Muii T rrvw n Ualtanuea. $14.95 Whon you bay a wind ml ll.oar EMPIRE Steel Wind Mill (right and can bo bought right, direct from us without tke Implement dealers' profit.
