on speculation by reason of. tho interna

today, special stocks, particularly muni
tion and equipment showing lone of
three to ten points. Selling of these stocks
was suggestive of liquidation on tho part
of timid or discouraged holders.
The setback lathered force from occas
ions attacks by tho short Interests, whose
operations met with little resistance. At
no time did the market manifest more than
a slight degree of steadiness. Lowest prices
were mads In the final hour, accompanied
by rumors that German submarines had
been seen In Cuban waters.
Bethlehem stsel Issues registered the
greatest losses, the old stock falling nine
points to 120, the new shares 7 to 106
and "rights" to the new stock declining,
3 to .
Other noteworthy reversals Included New
York Air Brake, Industrial Alcohol, Gen
eral Motors. Gulf States Steel, Atlantic Gulf
and West Indies, Mexican Petroleum, Texas
Company, and American Smelting at gross
declines of two to five points.
United States Steel was less active than
on tho previous day and yielded less than
any of the popular Issues, closing at a nom
inal net decline compared with one to two
points for related shares.
Unsettlement was shown by Motors and
Subsidiaries Sugars, Central Leather, West

Home Treatment for Coughs

Public Health day Nation-wide Crusade
General directions for correcting these com
mon ills. Every citizen should aid in work.
Slowly but surely th truth Is forcing It
self upon leader In th fields of political
economy, social welfare and philanthropy that
the inefficiencies and weaknesses even the
in and immoralities of mankind are due
In large measure to ills of th physical body
and gradually th world 1 awakening to
the knowledge that if we applied to the
problem of Improving the public health
and preventing disease the same energy and
treasure now directed to preparing for and
prosecuting legal murder between nations,
more lives would eventually be ssved than
have been sacrificed In all the wars of
Christendom. Washington diapatehes reveal
that the real purpose behind the proposal
that 2 6 -cent meals be served at the White
House for one day was to focus attention
on th plan to have a Public Health Day
on which th housewives of ths Nation would
give their families 26-cent dinners from
scientific menus In order to promote a study
of food values that will add to the health
of the households. This work should be
followed by a nation-wide crusade for home
treatment with authoritative instructions for
the correction of common ills like colds,
coughs, grip, catarrh and its attendant head
noises and deafness. Every reader of this
paper can aid in this movement by clipping
out this article now and pass ins along the
information that these Ills may b speedily
relieved by four tableepoonfuls a day of
a simple home-made syrup of hot water, one
quarter pint, four ounces sugsr, added to
one ounce of Parraint (double strength)
which may be obtained from practically any
druggist for about aeventy-flve cents. The
absence of a cough, olearing of th nos
trils and tubes leading to the Inner ear
organism a well a relief from dropping
of phlegm in th back passage of the throat,
point to removal of th cause; and ability
to hear again a wU a ever should result
from following for a reasonable time these
directions which are designed to be for th
constitutional correction oi ine oiooo.
The Alitor. obile Show Proves Studebaker
the Great Value of 1917
CONVINCING as is the proof of Stude
baker value given by the constantly in
creasing sales of Studebaker Cars, there
is even more obvious proof to be had at the
Here are exhibited the finest models of the
131 American builders of automobiles. And
here you may see for yourself, actually prove
to your own satisfaction, the convincing
Studebaker superiority over the whole of the
1917 market. ,
This superiority in value has already been
conclusively demonstrated by study of the un
prejudiced comparisons made by such lead
ing automobile journals as "Motor," "Auto
mobile," and "Motor World."
But here at the Show the facts are self-evident,
and certainly no man who plans to buy
a car at any price can wisely overlook this
unusual opportunity to study Studebaker
The Motor Publications
in a compilation of the facts and figures on all
the cars made in the United States, that
To Match What Studebaker

you must pay on the average $2753

IN REAR AXLE DESIGN
you must pay on the average $1742
IN TIRE SIZE
, you must pay on the average $2872
you must pay on the average $2009
More than this, they show that only 5 cars on
the market, of the 4-cylinder type, can you
get ALL of these characteristics of this Stude
baker FOUR and they are all expensive
cars, averaging $3687, as against Stude
baker's price of $940 1
In the case of the Studebaker SIX, the motor
publications show that

IN REAR AXLE DESIGN
you must pay on the average $1908
IN TIRE SIZE
1 you must pay on the average $2308
you must pay on the average $2031
And what is even more demonstrative of
Studebaker VALUE is the fact that the in
dustry's own figures show only 9 Sixes on the
1917 market give ALL of these character
istics of the Studebaker SIX, and they are
such high-priced cars that the average price
of the nine is $3769!
72.2 endorse by use BATTERY IGNI
TION as Studebaker does;
62.9 endorse the FULL - FLOATING
TYPE OF REAR AXLE as Studebaker does;
74.6 endorse VACUUM FUEL FEED as
and that 85.9 endorse TWO-UNIT
STARTING AND LIGHTING as Studebaker
What better proof can any man want of
Studebaker VALUE? The industry's own
figures demonstrate beyond the slightest
doubt that Studebaker quality can NOT by
judged by Studebaker large production price.
They prove that any man who wants ALL the
essentials that a Studebaker offers can get
them ALL in any other car only by paying
many hundreds of dollars more. They show
that Studebaker design is in thorough accord
not only with what the buying public wants
but also with what the whole industry ap
proves as GOOD engineering practice. And
they prove indisputably that the day of high
prices for fine cars has passed.
See the Steudebaker exhibit at the Show or
better come to our showrooms here and let us
show you the car and the features that the
whole industry ENDORSES BUT DOES NOT
EQUAL in VALUE.
