The Sino-Jaf) Situation Trying to unclurstanil Uio Ins and outs/ of tlie military situation ifvouml Sltting/iiii is .1 bit difficult Tor Americans whose nearest ayiin'oimh lo China hits been a dish of ehop-.suty in KOIIID Chincsc-AiiKTicaii vc.-.tauraut. It's it lot easier lu gel tiling straight if we transpose tlie whole tliin;: (o UK; UniU'tl States. Imagine tlial Slumgliui i.s New York City, and fliat some linropwin power— England, sny, just, for the sake of the illustration—oueupift the iw.sition ot Japan, while America plays the part of China. All along the wharves of New York's WiUei'fronl lie hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of Kritish goods which Now York merchanls won't aeeept and New York customers wouldn't liny if they did. Angered at this boycott, the British have sent a powerful lleet which lies in New York harbor ready to act. All of New England, meanwhile, has been seized by a British army, and -.inayors, and governor:) have been put into office who will-support, the British .power. Manhattan Island is 1 a foreign con. cession, jointly by French, Kng- lish, Italian anil Russian consuls', each backed by a capable military force. .The English cannot well operate there, but ,lhcy can soixo Brooklyn and Jersey Cily and thus get control of the New York area. So they .shell these two points and land marines and sailors to "mop up" in Brooklyn. Unexpectedly, strong iN'ew York national guard detachments, aided by troops, from Washington, stand them oil'. \V'ln)u all of this happens, a flotilla of. British destroyers Mourns up the Hudson aiici sheils Albany; and England proposes that European powers unite to seize Providence, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Norfolk and Charleston and dtniilitame them. To make the picture complete, imagine that most of the state governors and many of the nutyoys of the larger cities are practically mctciKMideiU, each maintaining his own army and running things with little control from Washington. Get that picture in your mind, and, yon have n fair idea of what i.s happening in China. —Bruce Gallon. Busses and Railroades The way in which Die /into can cut inf.cj railroad [^s^engci 1 traffic was never so strikiiiitly illustrated as in a petition which the Wheeling and Lake Eric railroad recently filed with Ohio authorities--, asking permission to clis. continue all its intrastale passenger service in Ohio. Passenger .service, .said die petilirw, has ilmpped far below the level at which trains can operate profitably. In 1920, the Wheeling and Lake Erie carried I,-OD,21 a passengers in Ohio. In tfl;jO it carried only 70,5G:;. -Most railroads, of course, have not suffered Unit severely.

H is generally well known that proper ventilation, proper warmth and the same bed are important factors in falling asleep.

With an income that is frankly abbreviated, and with no benevolent Aunts in the offing, they still have a home that is correct and comfortable in all its appointments, a home that is admired and copied by their friends. "Yes, Jane is a remarkable little manager," will probably be the young husband's proud answer. And there is little doubt about it. Take a look around that home and you will find no end of well-known advertised products. For Jane is an efficient little manager. She can't afford to take chances that must only be debited to "Experience 5 ." .When she buys for her home she must get triecfand tested and trusted products which carry an honorable name to guarantee her satisfaction. You will find that Jane is a consistent reader of the advertisements. Arc you? m
