The "Peace Hat" Now
Offered to London Men
London, July 9.—The "Peace Hat"
1 is a new kind of headgear about to
be offered to London men. Mystery
veils its shape and material and
| hatters thus far have managed to
i keep the secret strictly guarded, but
they have hinted enough about a
, revolution in men's head covering
! to stir up a lot of curiosity.
"Men are tired of the old time
honored bowlers (derbies), toppers,
• straws and Homburgs," said one
1 haberdasher, "and they want some
• thing new. The need Is urgent for
- a new hat—the 'Peace Hat'."
A London milliner said she favor
ed an innovation.
"It's quite time," said she. "Men's
hats at present are undoubtedly the
dullest things in life."
Say Tennis Robs Pretty
Girl of Her Good Looks
London, July 9. Tennis tourna
s ments rob a pretty girl of her good
looks in the opinion of close ob
! servers of the game here.
"I have known, pretty girls who
i after a season or two of tournaments
; have become so completely changed
: in appearance and manners that old
friends have failed to recognize
them," said a well-known player.
"Their faces become hard and lined,

Whatever You Do Don't Neglect
Your Eyes, Says Dr. Lewis, Who
Tells How to Strengthen Eyesight 50% in One Week's Time in
Many Instances
A Free Prescription You Can Have
Filled and l ac at Home
Philadelphia, Pa. Do you wear
glasses? Are you a victim of eye
strain or other eye weaknesses? If
so, you will be glad to know that
according to Dr. Lewis there is real
hope for you. He says neglect causes
more eye troubles and poor sight
than any other one thing. Many
whose eyes were failing say they had
their eyes restored through the prin
ciple of this wonderful free prescrip
tion. One man says after trying it:
"I was almost blind; could not see
to read at all. Now I can read
everything without any glasses and
my eyes do not water any more. At
night they would pain dreadfully;
now they feel line all the time. It
was like a miracle to me." A lady
who used it says: "The atmosphere
seemed hazy with or without glasses,
but after using this prescription for
fifteen days everything seems clear.
I can even read fine print without
glasses." It is believed that thou
sands who wear glasses can now dis
card them in a reasonable time and
multitudes more will be able to
strengthen their eyes so as to be
spared the trouble and expense of
ever getting glasses. Eye troubles
of many descriptions may be won
Here Is One Thing That
Is Absolutely Impossible
Rheumatism Has Never Been
Cured by Liniments or Lo

You never knew of Rheumatism
—that most painful source of suf

lotions or other external applica

thing but temporary relief afford

But why be satisfied with tem

pain which are sure to return with
•Increased severity, when there is
permanent relief within your reach?
Science has proven that Rheuma

Lancashire Cotton
Trade in Good Health
London, July 9.—lt has come to
the attention of the American
Chamber of Commerce in London
that an impression may exist in the
United States that due to wartime
diversion of mills, the Lancashire
cotton industry will have all it can
do now to "supply British and Do
minion markets and that the trade
Lancashire formerly enjoyed in
other overseas countries will now
fall to the United States.
Lancashire is not seriously handi
capped in any way, says thq Cham
ber of Commerce. As one reliable
authority states, so far there has
been no demand which Great Bri
tain has not been able to supply..
Free Trade Campaign
Is Urged in England
London, July 9.—A big free trade
campaign is being waged in Eng
land by Liberal party leaders.
Among the speakers are H. H. As

Crewe, Lord Beauchamp and Sir
Donald Mac Lean.
derfully benefitted by following the
simple rules. Here is the prescrip
tion: Go to any active drug store and
get a bottle of Bon-Oppto tablets.
Drop one Bon-Opto tablet in a fourth
of a glass of water and allow to dis
solve. With this liquid bathe the
eyes two or four times daily. You
should notice your eyes clear up
perceptibly right from the start and
inflammation will quickly disappear.
If your eyes are bothering you. even
a little, take steps to save them
now before it is too late. Many
hopelessly blind might have been
saved if they had cared for their
eyes in time.
NOTE: Another prominent Phys
ician to whom the above article was
submitted said: "Bon-Opto is a very
remarkable remedy. Its constituent
ingredients are well known to emin
ent eye specialists and widely pre
scribed by them. The manufac
turers guarantee it to strengthen
eyesight 50 per cent in one week's
time in many instances or refund the
money. It can be obtained from any
good druggist and is one of the very
few preparations I feel should be
kept on hand for regular use in al
most every family." It is sold in
this city by the Kennedy, the Croll
Keller and J. Nelson Clark stores.

Loijdon Plan Is to Replace It
With the Print
London, July 9.—To abolish script
writing and replace It by print
writing is the purpose of an influ
entially supported movement begun
in this country. Advocates of the
change contend that the present sys
tem fails to stand the test of com
mercial life in England and causes
a great loss of time and labor.
Tho characters used in the pro
posed system are tho ordinary
printed letters, known as Roman
block letters, with the exception of
the "a" and "g" which are simpli
fied into their script forms. The
print characters were employed by
monks long before scriptwriting
came into fashion and can still be
seen in ancient manuscripts from
which, in fact, they were first copied
by the printer.
Advocates of printwriting claim
It possesses many advantages over
ordinary handwriting, especially to
the teacher that, the same charac
ters being employed both for writing
and reading, the child learns much
more quickly, and it is further as
serted that his spelling and his edu
cation as a whole are correspond
ingly benefited.
Many British educational author
ities favor printwriting and It is
taught in numerous British schools.
No time is wasted in the new system
on innumerable Joinings. Superflu
ous loops and flourishings are abol
One big London firm has adopted
the system and other concerns are
said to be considering its use.

, To Limit Sales
Close co-operation with the gov
ernment departments and the United
States Chamber of Commerce and
the collateral business firms of the
country will enable a scheduling of
sales at a time when they will least
conflict with the regular trade chan
nels or react unfairly upon partis
ular industries. Steps also will be
taken to limit sales and to distri
bute them over such periods as will
satisfactorily permit of the absorp
tion or surplus stocks and material
on hand without embarrassment to
any interests concerned.
District managers of the supply
and sales division of the shipping
board have been appointed to devote
their attention to the problems aris
ing out of the warehousing and
sales program in their districts.
These representatives will be
located in Philadelphia, New York,
New Orleans. Chicago and Portland
Oregon. Subofllces and warehouses
are to be established In Boston,
Jacksonville., San Francisco, and
Solvage, or used material, will
sold subject to any deterioration
and subject to inspection by the
buyer on the ground. Surplus
or unused material will be
sold carrying the original manufac
turer's guarantee and the double
United States inspection required
before acceptance by the corpora
tion from the manufacturer. All
surplus or unused material has been
produced and marketed since April,
Cash on Delivery
All property, materials and sup
plies not assigned to the foregoing
will be disposed of by the supply
and sales division through its offices
in Philadelphia or through the dis
trict supply and sales ofl)ces in New
Vork, Philadelphia, New Orleans,
Chicago and Portland.
All sales will be'for cash on deli
very, unless they are of such nature
that guaruntee of payment can be
secured by mortgage, or unless the
conditions affecting the sale are
such as to make it advisable to ex
tend short time credit in cases
where loss to the corporation
through failure to make a sale
might be greater than the risk in
volved in the credit transaction.
