the Contract Cigar is carefully mellowed
before it is sent to the maker's bench.
We age the leaf until it is full ripe so that no matter what color you
choose, the cigar has a soft, velvety, rich taste. It takes time to get the
tobacco fit and fit for you. It must be dried at a certain temperature
to develop the flavor and fragrance just as the finest wines must be
cellared into mellowness. When youthinkofallthecare that is

NEW YORK, Deo. 3.-R. Q. Dun & Co.'S
weekly review of trade will say tomorrow:
It was hardly to be expected that the
Industrial and trade revival would continue
all the time at the recent high rate of
speed. Some slowing: up. If only for a
breathing spell, was natural, and this, ap
parently, Is why It Is occurring;, although
it makes no material impression upon the
treat volume of transactions. The unsea
sonable weather and the approach of the
holiday season, and the time for settle
ment and taking of stock, incident to the
ending of the year are in considerable part
responsible for the slightly more quiet
aspect of business The railroad strike in
the northwest is an unpleasant develop
ment and Its Immediate effects are chiefiy
felt In the flour trade. Undoubtedly the
action of the House of Lords In rejecting
ths British budget Is the most Important
event of the week and It may have far
reaching consequences, but It would be
difficult to trace any Immediate effect
upon the situation In this country. Of more
present concern to our markets Is the
opening of congress next week, with tha
inevitable agitation of economic and finan
No uneasiness Is felt regarding the lull

and steel, as It is recognised that tecovery
from past depression has been phenomen

have enough orders on their books to as

producers generally scan specifications on
business closely. Prtsure on the plate
mills have resulted from the Insistent de

steady flow of orders from tne railroads.
Additional large contracts are expected to
appear this month, and there Is prospect
of a shortage In shapes and plates.

Is light, Fall River selling only 60,000
pieces last week.
A larger number of reserve orders are

well-known business men in Salt Lake

CHICAGO, Dec. 8. Another avenue of
escape from serving the sentence of five
years' Imprisonment In the Leavenworth
federal prison for misapplying the funds of
the Chicago National bank was closed to
John R. Walsh here today by the ruling
of Judges Grosscup, Seaman and Raker In

he has been at liberty since the sentence
After the sentence was read John R.
Walsh, once the head of three banks and
the owner of a number of railroads, and
a prominent financial factor In Chicago,
was taken Into custody by Deputy United
States Marshal Edward Northrup.
The custody Is "special custody." A dep
uty marshal will accompany Walsh wher
ever he goes, but will not necessarily
place him behind barred doors for the
present, at least.
Arguments will be made next Tuesday
on a motion of Walsh's counsel to reopen
the case, to present further reasons why
the mandate should be stayed until appli
cation can be made to the United States
supreme court for relief.
The denial of the motion for a rehearing
leaves Walsh without other recourse than
the supreme court of the United States to
stay the execution of the sentence mm
mltlng him' to five years in tho Iaven
worth federal penitentiary. Tho court de
clined to admit Walsh to ball, but per

The action of the court was based on
the precedent created by the Morse case
when the New York financier was com

the supreme court Instead of being sent to
the federal prison.

ruling of the court was announced today,

with misapplying funds of the Chicago
National bank while he was Us president.
In November of the same year his trial
began before Judge A. B. Anderson In the
federal district court. January 18. Iftat, a
verdict finding him guilty on fifty-four
counts of the indictment was returned by
I. oa as on Memorandum Notes.
In the trial repeated reference was made
to "memorandum notes," for' large
amounts, signed by minor employes of
the bank and secured by bonds and other
collateral of railroad companies con-
troUed by Mr. Walsh, on which money
was advanced by ths bank.
The question of Intent to defraud figured
largely In the argument of counsel and In
the Instructions of the court to the Jury.
The Judgment of. the lower court was ap
pealed from, but was sustained by Judges
Grosscup, Baker and Humphreys of the
United States circuit court of appeals.
The government took the position that
the verdict was In .effect a general verdict
of guilty and that .the sentence of five
years' Imprisonment In the Fort Leaven

diums," of general circulation scattering your seed toobinly over too
great a territory. You may get valuable general publicity in this way
but you cannot expect it to do any thorough cultivating. This is no
disparagement of general mediums, for space in thftm is well worth
what it costs, but you must not expect them to yield anything like
maximum results for a given territory.
You can only obtain maximum results and profit from any given
locality by the means of Daily Newspaper Publicity. The newspaper
will cultivate the local field as no other medium can possibly do it. It
goes to the home. It takes the news of the day to the home fireside.
It is the messenger between the outer world and the reader you seek
to reach. It sells things.
By selecting any section of country which best appeals to you for the
purpose, you can in a short time and at practically no cost, demonstrate
the value of this great cultivating agency the daily newspaper to
your entire satisfaction. If you have been a user of space in general
mediums, then you are all the more
able to get the best value from local
cultivation. Take almost any one of
the general mediums for an example.
It may have 200,000 or even 500,000

great number in any one city or town.
You can only get the maximum pub

newspaper. Take for example a cer
tain city in Michigan of 100,000 pop
ulation. A canvass of 21,132 homes
showed that 19,781 of them took
some daily newspaper. Can there be
any other way to thoroughly cultivate
the home field which can approach
the messenger of the day the
newspaper ? It stands supreme in
power to cultivate trade locally and if you do not recognize
you are not awake to your own best interests.

There Is nothing that causes mor worry and discomfort than a chrrmlo,'
festering ulcer. As It lingers, slowly eating into tho tissues and surrounding
flesh, and by its tendency to grow worsa in every way, it suggests the possi
bility of being cancerous in its nature. Efforts to heal the ulcer by means
of salves, washes, lotions, etc., always result- in failure, because such treat
ment can have no possible effect on the blood where the impurities and
morbid matters form, and are carried thorugh the circulation to the place,
to keep it op:n, irritated and diseased. The impurities in the blood must
be removed before the healing process can begin. 8. S. S. goes to the
fountain-head of the trouble, and drives out the gorm-produclng pol3ons and
morbid impurities which keep the ulcer open. Then as this rich, purlued
blood is carried to the diseased place the healing commences, the inflam
mation gradually leaves, the discharge ceases, tew tissue and healthy flesh
are formed, and soon the sore is permanently cured because the source hat
been destroyed. 8. 8. 8. does not make a surface cure, but by supplying
the blood with healthful, tissue-building properties it begins t the bottom
and causes the flesh, at the diseased spot to firmly and permanently knit
together, and the pLsoe Is left sound and well. Book on Sores and Ulc-s
