Flowers arrived, too. t
Dr. and Mrs. Carman took an auto !

seized with a headache on the trip and 1
retired to her room as soon as she got J

"I expected the verdict," said Dr. |
Carman, "and considered Justice Black

part telling the jury the whole' case I

ROGH HINGES OR
Date of Adjournment
Depends on Whether
They Get Snarled in
FULL CREW FIGHT
The Repealer Which Has Passed the
House Will Be Voted on Finally In
the Upper Branch—Much Important
Legislation Is Fending
Both the Senate and House will
meet to-night at 8 o 'clock, and it is
beginuing to be realized that the Legis
lature is 011 its next to the last lap,
next week being the last according to
the Republican leatfvrs who have an
nounced that every effort will be made
to adjourn on May 20. It is barely
possible, however, that revenue meas
ures may get so snarled that it will
take a week longer to straighten them
out, in which event the legislators
would say farewell on May 27.
Efforts will be made to pass the
workmen's compensation bills in the
Senate this week. A public hearing
will be held on them to morrow after
noon aftef which it is expected the
Corporations Committee of the Senate
will hand them out for final action.
The full crow repealer has passed
the House and also passed second read
ing in the Senate and will be on final
passage in the Senate to-night, when
both railroad company and railroad
trainmen agents will be there in force.
The fact that the vote in committee to
report this bill to the Senate was almost
even, —7 to 6, —lias created the impres
sion that the vote on its fiual passage
will be very close, and the railroad
trainmen are not without hope that
they will be able to defeat it on final
passage. On the other hand the rail
road companies say they are sure they
have enough votes to carry the meas
Revenue Bills in the House
Revenue bills will be in order in the
House, and the stock trausfer tax, the

the expenses of the primary elections.
To-morrow the House will give atten
tion to the ship canal bills and the Cat
lin bill to place anthracite miners un
der the compensation laws. The bill
for standard tire insurance policies U
also listed for Tuesday. The House
has 22 bills on .third reading and 22
on the postponed -calendar. In the list
are the Optometry, Elevator Inspection
Bureau and "Pure Paint " bills. The 33
bills on second reading include the
election law amendments, bills to es
tablish State employment agencies, vo

The Senate has on third reading the

AN OPEN LETTER
This Is Also a Paid Advertisement
RIGHT OR WRONG
We do not believe a whole lot in expending much money for newspaper advertising so that we are
thereby compelled to ask increased prices for our goods. However, we do, just occasionally like to let
EVERYONE know that this store is now as always selling furniture and other housefurnish at lower
prices than most other stores.
We do a large business under an economical expense system which enables us to quote the lowest
possible prices on EVERYTHING. Our prices are uniformly low on all our goods. Our stock is one of
the largest and most complete in the city. >
Our customers will tell you that this store is not only one of the largest, but the best store in which
to purchase their home needs. In fact, our customers really prove to be our advertisers and they
have done it very well indeed. We believe thoroughly in a business system that will convince the cus
tomer that what he purchases here is at least just a little better for the same money, or as good for less
money than he can obtain it for elsewhere. /
This is the system which has built up our business, to its present large proportions and is still doing
good work for us. We try our beet to give our customers the most for their money and our experience
has been that the customer can always be depended upon to return the favor in some good way.
You may not see our advertisement in the newspapers very often, but we ask you to chalk this down:
When you want to buy good furniture at the way-down price, this is the store that is sure to be there
with the goods you may want and with the price that will suit.
A JITNEY WILL LET YOU OFF RIGHT AT OUR DOOR.

Little Talks on Health and Hygiene
By Samuel a. Dixon, M. D., LX»
D., Commissioner of Health
FVr the vast majority of plants sun i
jis an absolute necessity. They cannot 1
| grow uu.t thrive without it. It is of al- j
moat equal importance to human beitip
though comparatively few people reo- ,
ognire the fai-t.
When we walk into a bouse where 1
i the sun streams through the windowsj
j and brightens everything, instinctively
|we say, "what a <4ieerful place." The
stimulating effects of sunshine are difll
cult to estimate, but they are never- I
thejess a potent factor in maintaining i
our physical and mental health.
It has been said that suicides are j
more prevalent following a period of
rainy and depressing weather and fig
ures have been advanced to show that j
thev are more common among people'
who have rooms with a northern expo
sure lacking sunlight.
We all know how one's spirits are;
depressed bv a succession of rainy days !
but we lack a full appreciation of the |
| value of sunlight in our homes.
Tho germs of tuberculosis for ex- ,
ample will not survive for any length !
of time if expose to the suit's ravs|
It is a mistake to so protect our win-
I dows with shutters or curtains as to.
make it impossible to secure the max- j
iraum of sunlight. This is especially
true in the fall and winter when the
days irre short, but at all seasons of
the year sunlight is invigorating and
stimulating and almosit as mueh a ueces-1
sity as fresh air.
The planting of trees so close to
houses that they shut off tlie sun's rav»
isj.a mistake from a health standpoint.
Sun baths are beneficial in stimulat
ing the functions of the skin, sometimes'
to a degree whidi enables it to resist
i minor nilments.

of the presentation plan wherein a

Since August, 1914, the entire world

millions upon millions in costs and hun
