TjONDON. Oct. J7. The, correspondent
of the MorninK Poet, writing from a point
near Rhelms, under data of Saturday, and
discussing the sltustlotT In tha eastern
part of the Aisne valley, says:
"it Is possible that the Germans intend
tn hold this line all winter and If they
fortify their positions. It la quite possible
that they ran do so. It la certain that
they can make no further move Into
"Around Rhefms there is now only one
point where the German have heavy ar
tillery and this consists of only one bin
Itun and twenty pieces of smaller field
arllllea-y. These are all Austrian. This
artillery Is located near Berru, soma dis
tance from the city, which, however. Is
well within the rang of the bis; nun.
This gun is a rapidly moving piece, pulled
by a moVr tractor and contents itself
with a shot or two dally.
'The German Infantry .lines, however,
are much further advanced. The German
trenches at Betfieneny run in a long un
broken line around to the right by Cornay.

Senator Norris already has submitted
a partial list to Chairman Overman of

revenue, and Theodore Bell of California.
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. T7. Theodore
A. Bell denied with heat today that he
had worked to prevent a tax by congress
on whisky and an increased levy on beer.
"I was in Washington," said Mr. Bell,
"solely In the Interest of the grape grow

their counsel. I conceive that I had a
right to be there. I appeared openly and

EGAN LOSES CLAIM FOR .
BIG FEE IN DIVORCE CASE
8. P.. Oct. 27. (Special.) In
the supreme court today Justice Whitting
handed down an opinion in the case or
George W. Egan against Alice E. Bur
nlfht. Minnehaha county. In which the
lower oourt has been reversed. In this
rate Egan brought suit for a fee for
conducting divorce proceedings for his
client, claiming and securing a Judgment
for $1,000. The defendant claimed that all
which was due him was S2S0, claim of
'he defendant 4n the record being that the
fee was to be based upon the amount of
service required of the attorney. In Its
finding reversing the lower court, "the
supreme court says: "The attorney cer
tainly cannot be allowed to place a pot
of gold over asalnst his duty and the
rights of his client; common observation
teaches us which wsy the scales will 'tip

conflict, and, although It Is said the

gems to be without end, they ap
parently have made no noteworthy
advance since gaining this river.
The left wing of the allies has been re
inforced, a fact which may be due in
part to efforts to offset the constant
tide of freeh German troops and In part
to make good the decreased activity of
the British fleet, which, according to
German advices, hss been forced to
withdraw further from the coast because
of the German artillery. No German
ships, aside from submarines, have been
reported In this vicinity. The tone of all
articles Jn the London press seems to
be that the appearance of German war
ships would be welcomed ss presaging
that sea battle for which the Britons long
have teen hoping.
Germany has a number of small cruis
ers at Wllhelmhaven, together with a
detachment of destroyers, and the sudden
appearance of some of these ships woukl
be no surprise.

EVERY Robert Burns must be uni
form in workmanship, as well as
in the high quality of tobacco
which it contains. Its shape and ize
must be exact. It must be rolled so
that it will be absolutely certain to draw
freely and burn evenly. It must al
ways contain exactly the correct pro
portion' of the full-flavored, mellow
tobaccos which make this cigar so
delicately mild and satisfying.
Such a high standard of excellence
calls for the services of only the most
dxpert cigar makers. Because -of this
standard, the majority of the workmen
now making this hand-made cigar have
been specially trained for this work in
the Robert Burnsfactories.
In making the "filler' the greatest
care is taken to make sure that the
blend of tobacco is just right. Long
leaf only is used. The skill with which
this filler is made is readily seen by
the uniform evenness of every Robert
Burns cigar. After covering the filler
with a special leaf of carefully selected
tobacco called the "binder", the cigar
is ready for its wrapper.
The wrapper is deftly cut by hand
from a leaf of imported Sumatra. This
is rolled around the "filler" at just the
Inspectors keep a close watch over
this. If a cigar is rolled too tightly or
loosely it will not draw properly.
The inspector examines every finished
Robert Burns and those which are not
rolled properly are thrown out.
The Robert Burns' which you receive
will, be right absolutely right. You
can depend on it.
You'll find it a good plan to keep a plentiful supply of Roltert Burns
on hand in your office .desk, and in your humidor nt home.
- "When a man wants a Robert Burns he wants it. No other cigar will
take its place. Because no other cigar is as mild and generous in mellow,
fcmooth flavor as the Robert Burns.
Light up a Robert Burns NOW and enjoy satisfying mildness which
extends from tip to tip.
The "Invincible" is one of the most popular shapes of the Robert JBurns.
