| Ends Stubborn Coughs 1
In a Hurry . |
T I'or real effect I veil e, this old
Y Itome-made remedy han DO eqn&l. V
V Eaaily ami cheaply prepared.
You'll never know how quickly a
had cough can be conquered, until you
try this famous old home-made rem
edy. Anyone who lias coughed all day
uiul all night, will say that the imme
diate relict' given is almost like magic.
It is very easily prepaied, and really
there is nothing better for coughs.
Into a pint bottle, nut 2'/a ounces
of Pinex; then add plain granulated
sugar syrup to make a full pint. Or
you can use clarified molasses, honey,
or corn svrup, instead of sugar syrup.
Either way, the full pint, saves about
two-thirds" of the money usually spent
for cough preparations, and gives you
a more positive, effective remedy. It
keeps perfectly, and tastes pleasant
children like it.
You can foci this take hold in
stantly, soothing and healing the mem
branes in all the air passages. It
promptly loosens a dry, tight cough,
and soon you will notice the phlegm
thin out and then disappear alto
gether. A day's use will usually break
up an ordinary throat or chest cold,
and it is also splendid for bronchitis,
croup, hoarseness, and bronchial
I'inex is a most valuable concen
trated compound of genuine Norway
pine extract, the most reliable remedy
for throat and chest ailments.
To avoid disappointment, ask your
druggist for "2Vs ounces of Pihex"
with directions and don't accept any
thing else. Guaranteed to give abso
lute satisfaction or money refunded. J

Washington. Oct. 21— American j

Mr. Baker pointed out that should j

Progress in Surgery
Adds Fifteen Years to
Average Human Life
New York. Oct. 21.—Progress in j
surgery and medico therapeutics
since the Civil War have added fif
teen years to the average human
life, Dr. William Mayo, of Roches

American Congress of Surgeons at
the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
With continued progress, he add
ed, and aided by the elimination of

Dr. Mayo deplored the increase

| Reliable Method Of Hair Care |
Hair is by far the most conspic
uous thing about us and is probably 1
the most easily damaged by bad or !
careless treatment. If we are very ,
careful in hair washing, we will :
have virtually no hair troubles. Arr!
especially fine shampoo for this
weather, one that brings out all the
I natural beauty of the hair, that dis
! solves and entirely removes all dan
-1 druff, excess oil and dirt, can easily
Ibe used at trifling expellee by
! simply dissolving a teaspoonful of
j canthrox (which you can get at
I any druggist's), in a cup of hot
I watef. This makes a full cup of
! shampoo liquid, enough so it is easy
to apply it to all the hair instead
of just the top of the head. This
j chemically dissolves ail impurities
1 and creates a soothing, cooling'
j lather. Rinsing leaves the scalp
spotlessly clean, soft and pliant.
| while the hair takes on the glossy
j richness of natural color, also a
1 fluffiness which makes it seem
! much heavier than it is. After can
; throx shampoo, arranging the hair is
a pleasure.
; Sharp Conflict Being Waged
Over Nationalization of
the Lands
Mexico City, Oct. 21. A sharp
conflict is being waged in the Mexi
can Senate over the nationalization
1 of oil lands as provided in the de
| crees of President Carranza which
! wore intended to put into effect
I article 27 of the Mexican constitu
i tion. These decrees have been the
j object of bitter attack by the for
| eign oil Interests which declare that
I both they and article 2 7 of the con- j
! stitution would be confiscatory. |
I Disappointed over the inactivity of i
| the Chamber of Deputies which has I
I delayed action on the nationaliza-;
tion question, the Senate brought [
I up as a new initiative based on that 1
| of the president but differing from
it in the vital points that it should 1
not be retroactive. If adopted this j
law would not nationalize oil lands j
to which the title was perfected be- |
fore the present constitution became |
operative which was on May 21, I
Complications Arise
Debate 011 this measure, however, .
soon became complicated as a re- |
suit of attempts to include in it a 1
complete redrafting of the 27th
article. In the Senate discussions,
I.uts Cabrera, secretary of the treas
ury. and I,eon Salinas, sub-secre
tary of industry and commerce,
have presented the government's
side in support of naturalization.
Secretary Cabrera also is quoted
in newspapers as asserting that the
Senate in only wasting time in dis
cussing the oil question since the Jlil
interests would not be satisfied
with the Senate's decision.
The foreign oil companies have j
brought suits in the Mexican courts
to prevent the presidential decrees
from taking effect, and these have j
been appealed to the supreme court.
Secretary Cabrera has opposed !
action of the supreme court in these |
cases seniingly to delay action until
the executive department of the
Mexican government and represent
atives of the oil interests can reach
an understanding. What, if any.
progress has been made toward
reaching such an agreement is un

Clemenceau's Ideas
Concerning Clergy
Undergo Evolution
By Associated Press•
I Paris Oct. 11.— Premier Clemen
ceau's former hostility to priests and
anything religious is well known,
j but the old premier has undergone an
j evolution in his ideas concerning the
clergy. M. Clemenceau's home in Rue
Franklin is immediately adjacent to
the building occupied by a religious
community, the fathers of St. Louis,
who boasted of a wonderful garden
with a majestic plane tree, the huge
leave of which completely darkened
the window of the premier's private

Father Tregard, intimating that the

not reply; the plane tree still re

request. Finally the priest called
upon the premier.
"Please do me the favor of having
this tree removed," pleaded Clemen

| Only Way to Keep Expensive!
British Goods Off Their
Market, Experts Say
I, I
I Berlin, Oct. 21.-—American cotton
j must ho bought by Germans at any
| cost in the opinion of perman tex- :
| tile experts, though they groan j
| when-they think of the prices. These
! experts estimate that American cot- i
: ton will cost in Germany about nine !
j and one-half marks for the Ger- ,
man pound which is somewhat i
[ heavier than the American. This
price is in part owing to the low I
exchange value or the German mark !
which before the war was normally ]
worth about 2 4 cents.
Some little American cotton has]
been landed at Brqmen, especially '
since it has became possible to send I
orders by wireless and thus avoid I
delay of five days or more in cab- ;
ling by the way of England. Ex- I
ports say the Americans are anxious j
to do business directly with Ger- j
many and to avoid any interference I
by the British but the German regu- I
lations limiting bills of exchange isj
a serious handicap for it prevents
the importation of much cotton
from America through fear of losses
by exchange.
Nevertheless, the trade writers
point out that English factories al- j
ready are producing cotton goods in [
the occupied district of Germany ]
and they agree that if Germany is!
not to be overwhelmed by expensive ;
English goods which thus would
obtain an opening foothold in Ger
man markets. Germany mustJiavc
American cotton no matter what ]
it has to pay.

Pliiliulclpli a, Oct. 21. Fifteen
members of a shipwrecked crew
•j reached this port yesterday on the

j The men were, seamen aboard the
