THIS BEE OMAHA, MONDAY, -MARCH 15, 1HZ0. BUYERS FOR U. S. FIND GERMANY VERY POOR PLAGE - Exhibitors Display Wares But Will Not Guarantee Price or Delivery of Any Commodity. Hw York Tlmes-Ohtcls'o Tribune, Cable, - Copyright, mo. Berlin, Msrch-14. Many Ameri cans and other foreigner visiting the big exposition at Leipzig get an er roneous impression of German busi ness conditions, according to Itfe J. Stern of New York, who for several weeks has been studying the situa tion.' i "Apparently the exposition is a big success, Stern said. "There is an increase in the number of ex hibitors, but mostly they are middle men. There is a tremendous hus tling and bustling in the foreigrfbuy ing, but in reality the buying is nothing because of conditions. This is the story: The exhibitor first demands the inquirers' nationality. Then he fixes a price according to the rate cf exchange of that country in conformity with the government plan for world prices on everything allowed to be exported.. "On this basis, the prices .are high, but if the buyer still wants to order the exhibitor discloses the complete ridiculousness of the situa tion, fie says he will accept the order, but will not fix a delivery price or date of delivery, and finally will not even bind himself to deliver at all. This attitude can be under stood, because all costs, such as labor, materials, transportation and taxes, are uncertain even for a month ahead, but you can't expect a buyer to sign a 'contract entirely Do Away With Steel and Rubber Bands That Chafe and Pinch You know by your own experience the truss is a mere makeshift , -a false prop against a collapsing walk-ami that it is undermm infe your health.

The Plapao-Pads are Different STUARTS P1APAO-PADS are en tirely different from the device called the true In the following respects: First The primary and most im portant object of the PLAPAO-PAD la to keep constantly applied to the. relaxed muscles the medication call ed Plapao, which Is contractive In nature, and taken together with the Ingredients In the medicated mass, is intended to increase- the circulation of the blood, thus revivifying the muscles and restoring them to their normal strength and elasticity. Then, and not until then, can you expect the rupture, to disappear. Second Being made self-adhesive, purposely to prevent the pad from hitting, they have therefore proven to be an important adjunct in retain ing rupture that cannot be held by a truss. There is no metal about the PLAPAO-PADS no straps, buckles or springs attached. No "Digging In" or grinding pressure. They are soft as velvet Flexible Easy to apply Inexpensive. Continuous day and night treatment at homa. No delay from work. The Plapao-Pad Explained The principle upon which the PliAPAO-PAD works can be easily figured out by noting the accompany ing illustration, and reading the fol lowing explanation: Upon Their Oath tnem moat Aggravated oasts and of lone tandtnr. rollowlns are only a few of the hundreds of enthusleirtle Utters we have received from those cured.

Shipping Board Steamer Is Abandoned by Crew Southampton, N. Y., March 14. The Shipping Board steamship Lake Deval, aground on the Long Island coast near here, was abandoned Sat urday night by the captain and crew of 31 men, who were brought ashore in a breeches buoy. The rough sea made launching of lifeboats impos sible. The steamship had been washed in by a heavy surf over the outer bar and was hard and fast in the sands close to shore. After the men had landed, the wind .shifted and calmed the sea. It was hoped to save the ship. . . . Lh . Newsboy Missing From Home Since Last Tuesday Harry Silver, 15-year-old news boy, 2318 Charles street, has been missing from his home since last Tuesday. His parents have asked the aid of police in attempting to lo cate the boy. He left his home in the morning to go to school, but failed to report. Young Silver is of slender build, dark coniplcxioned and was dressed in a dark suit. r y"rmM The PLAPAO-PAD is made of a strong, flexible material, "E," which is designed to conform to the move ments of the body and be perfectly comfortable to wear. The inside sur face, "V," is adhesive similar to an adhesive plaster, to prevent the pad from shifting and getting out of place. . ... "A" is the enlarged end of the PLAPAO-PAD, which overlies the atrophied and weakened muscles to keep them from giving away further. B" is the Pad, to be applied in such a way that.it blocks up the hernial orifice, and .tends to prevent the con tents of the abdomen from protrud ing. Within the Pad is a reservoir, in which is placed a wonderfulab sorbent. astringent medication, whea warmed by the heat of the body, it becomes soluble and escapes through the small opening marked "C" and t absorbed through the pores of the skin to strengthen the weakened muscles and effect a closure of the openings. "F" Is the long end of the PLAPAO-PAD, which is to be plas tered over the hipbone to give so lidity. old. and you don't know how much batter I feel. Tour riapao-ra work and I am now. aolld and well.

Once upon a time there was a Merchant a Mer chant of the usual kind. This Merchant had a Son. The ; Son, however, was of the unusual kind. One day the Son went to his father, and said : "Dad, -I'm getting tired of this town, and I'm about disgusted with this business. I've been working for you '. for some time, m fact, ever since I left high school, and ; I've come to the conclusion that this little old town and i your moth-eaten business are just a little bit too small ; for me, and much too slow, so I'm going to move. "Oh, I've thought about this for a long time, and : pretty carefully, too, and I've decided to leave town. No, I don't know just where I'm going, or when I'm coming ', back, but some day, Dad, I hope to come back. "In the meantime, Dad, I want you to promise me something you'll promise me, won't you? I'm going to be very busy trying to make good and if it's just the same to you, I'm not going to write to you unless I need you very much. And don't you write to me either, Dad, unless, of course, something goes wrong at -Home, or you need me in the Business. You understand, don't you, Dad?" . It is needless to go into details. The Son left the Father in a very much surprised and thoughtful state of mind. - It didn't take long for 10 years to go by, and in the meantime the Son had gone to the Big City, engaged in all kinds of work, from swamper on a wagon to a high executive position, and finally became an active member of Civic Organizations and Club Work in general. After he felt that he had accomplished something Real and Worth While, he decided to go Home and show Dad the success he had won for Himself; and the first thing you know he was on a Train speeding West, and arrived at his Former Home. The train hadn't stopped before he was off the plat fonn, and on a dead run to his Father's store. But in place of running into the old, musty, unkempt-appearing sort of a building front, he was amazed to find in its place a six-story, white-tile, modern Class-A building. When he tried to open the door, he was surprised to find a boy at the other side to pull it open for him. He was dazed. He couldn't understand it all. After a fond embrace, congratulations, and a lot of wild and loose talk, both by the Father and Son, the Fa--ther said, "Well, now let's not talk any more about this ; I Won't tell you a thing about it, but let's go Home. I'll have my car brought around, and tonight, after dinner, you and 1 are going to talk things over." And they did. The Father said : "You know, my boy, that was an awful 'kick in the shins' you gave me about 10 years ago, when you said that you" were tired of my old ramshackle, moth-eaten, hole-in-the-wall that I called a Business. "I worked hard to build up my business, but you got me to thinking, and I did some real hard and, I think, yes, I know, I did some real Constructive Thinking. I got to chasing myself around, mentally, trying to find myself, and one, day I did. "Do you "know what it was I had to find out first of all, Boy? I had to learn that I was engaged in a worthy vocation. In other words, I had to know that my business was a Community Benefit. I also began to ap preciate that this community looked upon me to supply it with the goods that the World had to offer for the Everyday Needs of the People. "You see, I got to thinking along those lines, and I came to the conclusion that if Mine was a Worthy Voca tion, I really ought to love my work. After I found that my Vocation was Worthy, I really did love my work, and did appreciate that my business was an Opportunity to serve Society, and to be a Benefit to the Community. "I never really noticed that I was a 'Celluloid Collar Dub that my clothes were a bit mussed up ; in fact, I noticed a little bit of egg on the lapel of my coat. i ien inai i wasn't taking quite as good care of myself as I should. Possibly a few more Baths a week wouldn't have done any harm. I noticed that my shoes weren't shined. i "Another thing I found in my Inventory of Self-Improvement you .know, what a great fellow I was for talking politics and finding fault with anybody and every body who tried to do anything well, I jacked myself up one day and found that I wasn't voting as often as I should. Fine American citizen I was, wasn't I? "Remember how I used to find fault with things around town because they weren't progressive, and we were not doing things? Well, I really never did bring the Message Home to Myself, until one day I woke up and found out that I. wasn't a member of the Chamber of Commerce. But I am now. you bet! "My boy, after I got to sprucing up, and looking really like somebody, a sudden desire came to me in the way of ambition. There came to me the ambition to suc ceed. No, not only for the profit in fact, the matter of profit didn't enter into the feeling at all. I felt the responsibility that My Business was a Community Repre sentative, therefore it was my duty to make it success ful." - C. Hafer Lumber Co.
