That the buying pubfic "gets Indigestion
fifohi a feteady diet of bargain" Is Hie
opinion of John L. Hunter, advertising
manager of tho A. T. Lewis A Son Dry
Goods Compariy, of Denver, Co)., expressed
In his talk this morning before tho retail
advertisers department on "How Much

results aro tending toward a loss of

'The customers that bargain advertising
brings aro spoiled by Ihelr Continual senrch

they spend their energy getting a price,
while ignoring Style and quality, the
principal elements of satisfaction.

last year on retail advertising nnd Judging
by tho advertisements that clipping rerv

Think of It! Two hundred nnd twenty-eight'
millions thrown nfter tho mistakes and bad
guesses of merchants and buyers, nnd to
what purpose? Tho retail merchant must
learn a new way. Ho must forget his tradi

The fact that this subject Is bolng discussed
hero today Is Indication that wo aro pro

"Out of 107 failures of nil kinds In a

REFUGEES PERISH DAM,
SAYS AMERICAN VISITOR
Thotnns Whittemoro Assorts
That Problem of Bathing
Homeless Hordes Is a
BEYOND HUMAN POWER-
Thbmas Whlttemore, of Now York city,
who recently returned from Russia, where
he wah a member of Grand Duchess Tft
tlana Nlkolftovna's committee for War re
lief, nnd who Is a member of the lUissl&n
rtelief Commission here, said nt his homo
that It Was hot because of the fact that
Russia, was not In heed of American as
sistance that It had not appealed for relief,
but that a silent resignation had been char
acteristic of Russian sacrifice.
''1 have just returned from hn eight
rtbnihs' sojourn In Russia,1' said Mr. Whit

Vast hdrdo of hUmnhlly, Who evacuated the
west when tho country waB devastated for
military rc&Sohs in the early part of the

Jews, Poles, LAttS, Little Russians nnd Lith

by train, ahd wero months on the march,
They Inoved across Russia toward tho Cen
tral Governments on the Volga.
"No other nation has had this tremendous
problem to sohb the problem of saving the
HVcS of coUhlteas human beings. Tho Rus
sian Government recosn z6b Hi theso multl
tUdeS of rlatlons but one a nation in want
and it was forced to turn to the Zemstvos,
the provisional uhldns, for assistance and
tho organization of help. The Zemstvos
nro tho mighty national unions which
breathe the spirit of the new Russia.
"Theso city nnd county unions have es
tablished feeding centres on roads and in
places-of centralization In tho heart of Rus.
sla, nnd further east they found lodgment
for many of those who were Intrusted to
their care. It Is impossible to say how
many millions of peoplo theso Zemstvos
havo tnken caro of, as no record could be
taken; this, too, would be nn Impossibility.
DEATH RATE CALLED TERRIFIC.
"Thousands aro perishing every day, but
In the early part of the war the death rato
was terrific. Whole governments perforce
rose to their feet and moved nvay, llko
the Nomads or Tartars of old, ahd wan
dered over the face of Ruesla In tremendous
clouds. Tho acute agony of flight Is over,
but tho chronic distress remains. Summ6r
brings Its dlscnses, cholera ahd others, but
tho winter was mado terrible by tho rav
ages of typhus, which, In Bplto of every
effort made to curb ltraged frightfully."
"A National Committee wnB formed. It
was made up of Jow.s, Russians, Poles, nnd
representatives of tho other nationalities
who Inhabit Russian territory, and was
established to prcsere the national life of
Russia's great fnmliy of nations. The
committee was headed by her Imperial
Highness, thB Grand Duchess Tatiana
N"lkolao nn, and has been doing wonderful
work Ih sending out tons or clothing nnd
tho necessaries of life to tho needy. In
formation bureaus were established so that
famtllos, nnd even towns, which became
icparSted could bo located and reunited.
A concerted effort Was mado to hold the
horde together, to keep towns and families
entire, but despite all this work, many
thousands wero lost when children strayed
from their own,
TASK BEYOND HUMAN POWER.
"Hotels wero established for children nnd
Infants, nnd It wns necessary to crowd nil
these hilmans Into eery available building.
Several barracks wero bUIll to house from
1000 to 2000 people apiece. The refugees
were packed In these single sheds, which
resembled huno barns or Stables, and which
woio mndo Into double or triple stories.
Tho unions hero did their sharo. They as
sisted efficiently and honestly ln tho dls
trlbutlon of food and money, which was
given by tho Government for feeding nnd
medical aid. Everything possible is being
done, bdt the problem is so gigantic that
It is woll beyohd human handling,
'The problems of tho Bummer will havo

heeded before tho winter or that terrible
Russian scourge, tjphus, will strike onco
more. I am interested In assisting the

because of this lack of equipment and the
hygienic conditions naturally attendant
on getting theso people off the roadsides

Mr. Whittemoro Bald that ho would re
turn to Russia In a few months nnd that he
was at present making arrangements in
this country for shipments of bathing equip

In a statemenl Issued by John J. O'Connell,
chairman of tho Progressive County Com

Williams nnd Kdallhg, especially tho lat
