whose incomes are $4,000 or less per year. Ninety per cent of these car owners use their passenger cars more or less for business.

As far as traffic laws are concerned, motor-truck manufacturers and motortruck operators are agreed that there should be laws governing the gross weight, width and length of vehicle, and load, and that the first of these, the weight, should be on the tire-inch basis, but they feel that all States should have a uniform law. Much motor-trucking today is inter-State, and as they are regulated to-day operators never know whether they are breaking the laws until they are held for some infraction.

The Federal Highway Council Uniform Road Law is eminently fair, we believe, to all roads and to all truck owners. This law limits gross weight to 28,000 pounds and 800 per tire-inch, and speeds on pneumatic tires up to this limit of weight to 25 miles per hour. Lesser speeds are provided for different weights on solid tires. Fifteen States have already adopted this law, which is indorsed by many highway officials and associations. Legislation that limits weight and speed of motor trucks should be the same the country over,

common carriers.

That our present National Government realizes these things, and will eventually bring about an equality of burden on the various forms of transportation is my firm belief, based somewhat on President Harding's own statement that "the motor vehicle has become an indispensable instrument in our political, social, and industrial life, and that highways are not only feeders to the railroads and afford relief from their local burdens, but that they are actually lines of motor traffic in inter-State commerce."

It is certain that the automobile and truck are vehicles of usefulness. They are common conveyances, necessary to the business mar, the professional man, and the farmer. Such an additional tax on them as was recently proposed by Secretary of the Treasury Mellon would be as senseless as one levied on the farmer's horse and wagon or upon every boat plying our rivers and lakes.

T is only twenty-five years ago," says a writer in the "Railway Age," "that the newspaper men of New York City were invited to see a 600-ton passenger train slowly pulled out of the Grand Central Terminal by what was then considered a monster locomotive. That locomotive is now hauling a milk train on a branch line. It and its class have given place to really powerful locomotives that were not then dreamed of. To-day the fastest long-distance trains in the country weigh twice as much as the exhibition train referred to. In five years the average revenue train load of the country as a whole has increased from 475 tons to 728 tons, or an increase of over 53 per cent since 1915."


Among the navigators of small sea craft the "Wide World Magazine" gives a high place to Captain Thomas Drake, descendant of the famous circumnavigator, Sir Francis Drake. Captain Drake sailed alone during four years over 22,000 miles in a 32-foot boat, the Sir Francis. The little craft was finally wrecked off the coast of Salvador, but Captain Drake succeeded in reaching shore. Inhospitable natives of the bandit variety here met him and completed his misfortunes by relieving him of all his remaining possessions. He finally reached his home at Seattle, however, in good spirits and ready to begin a new career of adventure.


The great steamship Imperator, formerly a German liner, is to join the fleet of the Cunard Line under the name Berengaria.

Berengaria was the wife of Richard I of England, the "Lion-Hearted." He married her at Cyprus during one of the Crusades.

Told Millions the way to pretty teeth

Millions of people have already made this simple ten-day test. And the glistening teeth you see everywhere now are largely the result of this method.

We urge you to make it. Then see and feel how your teeth conditions change.

Must fight film

You must fight film to keep your teeth whiter, safer and cleaner. Film is that viscous coat you feel. It clings to teeth, gets between the teeth and stays. The tooth brush, used in old ways, does not remove it all. So very few people have escaped the troubles caused by film.

It is the film-coat that discolors, not the teeth. Film is the basis of tartar. It holds

food substance which ferments and forms
acid. It holds the acid in contact with the
teeth to cause decay.

Millions of germs breed in it. They, with
tartar, are the chief cause of pyorrhea. And
all these troubles have been constantly in-

To daily combat it

Dental science has for years been searching for a daily film combatant. It has now been found. Careful tests under able authorities have amply proved its efficiency. Leading dentists everywhere now advise its use. The methods are embodied in a dentifrice called Pepsodent. And to millions of people, here and abroad, it has brought a new era in teeth cleaning.

Ask for this ten-day test

Ask for a ten-day test. Then judge by what you see and feel how much this method means.

Each use of Pepsodent brings five desired effects. It attacks the film in two efficient ways. It leaves the teeth so highly polished that film cannot easily adhere.

It multiplies the salivary flow--Nature's great tooth-protecting agent. It multiplies the starch digestant in the saliva, to digest starch deposits that cling and may form acid. It multiplies the alkalinity of the

[blocks in formation]

saliva, to neutralize the acids which cause
tooth decay.

These results all accord with modern dental
requirements. Everybody. every day should
get them.

Send the coupon for the 10-Day Tube. Note how clean the teeth feel after using. Mark the absence of the viscous film. See how teeth whiten as the film-coat disappears. You will be convinced. Then the benefits to you and yours may be life-long in extent. Cut the coupon now.



The New-Day Dentifrice

A scientific film combatant, whose every
application brings five desired effects.
Approved by highest authorities, and now
advised by leading dentists everywhere.

Copt," he says, "which I saw passing Shepheard's yesterday afternoon, there was a big sign printed on white paper on both sides of the hearse which read, "Telephone 610'-just a bit ahead of the undertakers' methods of advertising in the Western world."

"The old journalist," says Mr. C. K. Shorter, of the London "Sphere," in describing some changes in British journalism, "thought that politics were the very center of the newspaper world. Lord Northcliffe was the first newspaper proprietor to discover that there were vastly more people interested in sport than in politics. In a copy of the 'Daily Mail' to-day, out of thirty-six columns of editorial matter, only half a column is devoted to politics. There is four times the space devoted to golf, and the leader on garden flowers is longer than the political one."

What happens to the films when a "picture" that is only partly taken loses its chief figure by death? Sometimes, an authority tells us, they are sacrificed; sometimes the directors succeed in finding an "understudy" who can look and act the part well enough to make Threethe films worth completing. quarters of a million dollars had been spent on a picture called "Foonsh Wives," it is stated, when the chief character died. The country was searched far and wide for a duplicate hero, and at last he was found. When


'Way Down East" was one-fourth completed, a young actress who had an important part in it died. Her piquant young face had been imprinted on scene after scene. In this case all the films were sacrificed; another ingénue was engaged and every scene was retaken.

The personal column of the London "Times" is an unfailing source of amusement to discriminating readers. Why some advertisers should be willing to pay a minimum charge of ten shillings ($2.50) for the matter they insert is a puzzle. Here are three specimens from a recent issue:

[blocks in formation]




people come in here to read books as well as to buy them?" a customer asked a New York City dealer in second-hand books. "Do they!" was the reply. "Why, a man yesterday stood so long at a ten-cent stall I have on the sidewalk that one of my clerks, an Irishman, went out and politely offered him a chair so that he might read more comfortably! And a young girl came in here one evening about six o'clock not long ago and picked up a novel. She read steadily until nine o'clock and then my assistant turned off the lights just as she was getting to the end of the story. She gave him a look as if he had picked her pocket. Some people think a bookstore is a free library!"

A subscriber finds this amusing jingle in a volume of "ancient keepsakes:"

Do ships have eyes when they go to see?

Are there springs in the ocean's bed? Does the jolly tar flow from a tree? Does a river lose its head?

Are fishes crazy when they go insane?

European hotel rates have strikingly dvanced over those of the old days, as comparison of them in the latest issue Guide" f "Bradstreet's Continental with former rates shows. At Ostend, For instance, "the largest first-class otel" now announces rooms from 25 rancs, and full board from 60 francs up day. Before the war the same house ad rooms for 6 francs and board for francs a day. In Paris a fashionable totel advertises rooms from 18 francs, and with private bath from 40 francs D. Its dinner, which before the war as 5 francs, is now 14 francs. Monte Carlo a hotel announces, "Penon from 50 francs." A Naples hotel fers "inclusive terms from lire 40."

"No writer so well equipped with the advantages of intellectual capacity, practical experience, and broad opportunities for observation has ever written on modern democracy. Skilled in law and historical research, gifted with the rare powers of penetrating analysis, Lord Bryce has added to these the practical experience of a statesman in a great state."- Charles E. Merriam in the Bookman. "A comprehensive survey of twentieth century democracy an amazing achievement."- William Bennett Munro in the Harvard Law Review.

its former value. Sixty francs would thus be six dollars, while 40 lire, at 5 cents a lire, would be only two dollars.

"Off to Hunt for Quipe" is a headline in a daily paper. It suggests some kind of game, but the reader pauses a moment to decide whether it is fish, flesh, or fowl. He is enlightened as he reads:

Professor W. W. Rowlee has sailed for Ecuador in quest of quipe timber. "I am not certain where we will find the quipe, but we will make a careful survey of the country," he says. "Quipe is a very light, buoyant wood which is used extensively as a substitute for cork in the manufacture of life preservers and similar articles."

The British villager is not loquacious in his speech-making, says Mr. F. E. Green in his book "The Tyranny of the Countryside." In a recent political campaign, Mr. Green says, a retired brewer was called on to speak. He got up and said: "Men, you all know me." ("Hear, hear!" "He's a jolly good fellow!") "Well, all I ask of you is to be men-be men." And he sat down amid vociferous cheering. Mr. Green then spoke somewhat at length, in a radical vein. next morning one of his friends asked a


New York

laborer what he thought of the speeches. "'Darned lot o' vules,' laconically responded the laborer. 'But you heard Green speak?' said my friend, with a little enthusiasm, expecting that in me at any rate he would see a comrade. 'Why, he be the biggest vule of the lot,' came the crushing comment. He wants a new party!"

A story told by Whitelaw Reid to Theodore Roosevelt is reproduced in the recently published Life of Reid. It illustrates equally an Englishman's love of sport and his "sporting" spirit:

The prince shot a pheasant which dropped almost at his feet. At that instant a splendid, well-fed fox dashed up, caught the still fluttering pheasant in his jaws, and was off like an


The prince's exclamation was: "What infernal cheek!" The amused remark among several of those about him was: "That's lèse majesté! If we were in Germany, the fox would have a hard time of it." Even in America, I fancy that some of us would have been tempted to give him the benefit of an undischarged barrel. But not a gun was lifted, and evidently every Englishman thought that the fox was within his rights.
