been Issued by the Philadelphia Chamber
of Commerce. Tho letter charges that the
business men of this city are losing annu

of Councils' neglect In the convention hall
The succets of the movement to get the

"The Philadelphia Chamber of Com
merce calls upon the citizens of Philadel
phia to give their active support to the
effort that It Is now putting forth to In
duce Councils to act promptly upon the
project of building a convention hall.
Philadelphia, for many years, has felt the
need of such a building, but at this time
It Is particularly Important that definite
steps should be taken In this direction
"The Allied Advertising Clubs of the
World, which bring together nearly M.000
persons, are coming here next year. This
city stands an excellent chance of getting
the republican National Convention for
19 IS. An Invitation has been extended by
this organization to the Republican Na
tional Campaign Committee to come to
Philadelphia, and the Information received
at the office of the secretary seems favor
able to tho convention being held here
next year. Tho most serious obstacle Is
the lack of a suitable building to accom
modate tho convention.
"These two conventions will bring hun
dreds of thousands of dollars to tho mer
chants, hotels and other business Interests
"Philadelphia needs a building near tho
business centre of tho city, adjacent to
thef tracks of the railroads having their
terminals In Philadelphia; a building that
Is accessible from all parts of tho city
and which Is designed to accommodate
conventions attended by 101), 1000 or 10,000
"This subject hao been debated for a
number of years and public sentiment Is
unanimously In favor of the erection of
such a building.
"The Chamber of Commerce therefore
takes this occasion to urge each of Ita
members, and every citizen of Philadel
phia, Immediately to get In touch with
their respective representatives In Coun
cils, by personal Interview or by letter,
and to urge that at tho first meeting of
Councils In September definite action

"For Hire" Signs Also Used on
Wagons to Foil Vigilant
Broad daylight hold-ups of automobiles
and wagons used by banks In New Tork,
Chicago and Denver for the transporta

prompted a number of banking Institu

on their vehicles. The signs, which nra
placed at tho front part of the vehicle,
near the driver's seat, carry the Inscrip

Several of the signs bearing the words
"For Hire'" were seen today In the Cen

Get all the smoke-pleasure you pay for.
Find the right cigarette a SENSIBLE
one that Jits your own likes and dislikes.
Tastes differ in fashions, foods and pretty girls.
Also in cigarettes.
A cigarette that started out to please every man's
taste would end up by pleasing none.
Most of us like our cigarette smoke deliriously cool
and refreshing. The Mexican likes his hot and dry, with
a nice little peppery sting in it.
Some men like a cigarette -wholesomely, fragrantly
mild. Others of us hunt for a cigarette almost as heavy
as a black cigar.
Most of us want an "easy" cigarette a SENSIBLE
one, so that no matter how steadily or how many we
smoke, we'll feel as fit as a fiddle. Other men, though,
don't care about that. They smoke only a few so they
want a kick like a mule's in each puJE
All of us want our smoke "full-bodied" Vtmml satisfy
that smoke-hunger. But the cigarette that just fills the
bill for you may not do at all for your next-door neighbor.
Somewhere among all the brands on the market is the
one just-right cigarette for YOU I
Maybe it's the very one you have now in your
pocket but are you SURE? Maybe it's some entirely
"different" cigarette it may or may not be Fatima.
But "find it!" Until you do, youre cheating your
self out of a whole lot of smoke-pleasure. Also you're
wasting some money.
How to Find "yours'
To avoid blindly trying too many different cigarettes,
nsk yourself, first of all, this question:
"Just what do I like in a cigarette ? "
rf you smoke only a few every day, you may prefer
a cigarette which is rather rich or heavy and "oily." Or
you may like one which has a rather strong "oriental"
taste with a pungency almost like perfume. Or you mav
want a cigarette with that noticeably "sweetish" Egyptian
hut this will help you find it
flavor. But if you smoke quite often if you would lute
to smoke whenever you feel like it and without any effect
on the tongue or throat or any fear of a heavy or "heady"
feeling afterwards then you should choose some cigarette
such as Fatima, a cigarette composed of all-pure tobaccos
of considerable aroma, mellowed by being aged and care
fully blended to produce a fragrant and wholesomely mild,
yet "full-bodied," smoke. And the smoke must be notice
ably COOL. For otherwise your tongue or your throat
will soon signal you to stop smoking so often.
If you will ask any Fatima smoker, he will tell you
that Fatimas never make him "feel mean" no matter
how many he smokes.
That is why Fatimas are considered the most sensible
cigarette by such a large majority of smokers. And
thatt is probably the main reason why hardly any
Fatima smokers ever switch They like a sensible cigarette
and one with a good, pure taste to it.
But the Taste is up to Yon
All cigarettes are pure, but when it comes to the taste,
nobody can help you choose. You simply have to decide
Of course, Fatima's taste may not appeal to you.
But most men who try Fatimas like the taste so well that
they seek no further otherwise Fatimas could never have
won and held their enormous and growing leadership
