Now York, ,lau. 22.—Prices of dia
monds ami pearls are due to advance
steadily and substantially for a long
time to come, according to Ludwig Xis
scn, president of the American Jew
elers' Protective Association, says the
New York "Commercial." Mr. Nissen
credits this condition both to the war
and to methods of production, and he
explained the situation to a reporter
yesterday, as follows:
"The .production of diamonds has
absolutely stopped since the beginning
of the w«r, August 1. The Dcßeers
'.Mining Company dosed its mines at
that time, and Ihe London syndicate,!
which is under contract to take the
whole output of the Deßeers Mining
Company for » number of years to
come, closed its offices as well, refusing
even to submit 'the sights' they hail
agreed to, with the buyers ol' the rough.
The precautionary measure, of course,
was taken for the purpose of furnishing
no excuse for a possible fear of a slump

100,000,000 PERSONS IN U. S.
Census Expert Says These Figures Will
Be Beached by April 2
Washington, Jan. 22. At 4 p. m.,
April 2, the population o£ the Unite*!
States will have reached and passed
the 100,000,000 mark, according to C.
D.-©loime, geographer of the Census
Bureau, who estimates the population
at that hour will l>e 100,000,000. J. S.
McCoy, Actuary of the Treasury De
partment, however, calculat.es the popu
lation will be 100,0115,000 on February
1, and that the 100,000,000 mark will
be reached on January 27 or 28.
In the Census Bureau the direct in
crease as shown by the difference in
population in 1900 and 1910 is taken.
Bv that system the country woul.l con
tain 100,399,318 persons on July 1,
1915, and more titan 108,000,000 on
July 1, 1920.
Actuary McOoy arrived at his con
clusions by including in his calculations
what he calls titc factor of second (dif
ferences. By that system he estimates j
the continental population of January
10, last, at 99,875,000; February 1,
100,016,000 and July 1, 100,725,000
On Julv 1, 1920, Mr. McCoy estimates
it will "be 109,339,000.
I Census Bureau officials said ye.-4t.er
dav that decreased immigration would
find their figures approximately ac
curate. Mr. McCoy, on the other hand,
believes the conclusion of the European
war will see a tide of immigration from
war torn countries that will make his

If you are willing to spend a few

ugly, hairy growth without discomfort
or injury. The paste is made by mix

delatone. This is then spread over tho
hairy surface and after about 2 minutes
rubbed off and the skin washed. You
will not be disappointed with this treat
ment, providing you get real delatone.

this new musicai-buriesque, has con

The production of this elaborate ex

in the way of stage setting and cos

careful in supplying this. Notwith

There is nothing that Ellen Terry

There is no man or woman with whom
she has been associated who has not
found something sweeter and better for
that association. She is the woman! iest
of women and the staunehest of frieuds.
What a name Ellen Terry's has been
to conjure with! What an asset to an
actor or actress to have that same
name! Always "One of the Terrys,"
an all-sufficing, proud nomenclature, in
deed. And to think that »t should be
so honored, so reVcred; the name of
what in Shakespeare's days would
have been a "Vagabond" family.
Truly, the vagabonds have come into
their own through Ellen Terry. Would
Irving have been so great without his
association with that name? Irving
