There would be gaps in it, of— but it would be interesting enough to make up for lhat. Rivers and canals played n liuye part in,.the early development of the country. They were all-important in the pre• railroad era, and their lisa continued even after the railroad.s were built; then, one by one, they gave way, people began to travel and ship Iheir goixts by train and the canal boat nnd rjver steamer fell into disuse. An exciting nnd colorful era in our history died with them. The railroads, that killed traffic on inland waterways, killed that era, and ushered in a now one. And although there are signs lhat the waterways are going to come into their own once more, the old era will not come back with them. All of this is brought to mind by the announcement that business men ol' Ohio and Pennsylvania ai'D putting on a campaign to have a'$100,000,000 canal . dug connecting the Ohio river with Lake Erie. Manufacturers of the PiUsburgh-SIa- honing Valley district are said lo have guaranteed at least 1-1,000,000 tons of freight a year for this-waterway. They declare that the "Kuhr valley of America" would be bimefitted enormously by such an undertaking, and denuuKi early government action. • Sooner or later,. this canal probably wffl be dug7 and i.ake Erie and tho Ohio will be connected onco more—il is only a couple of decades or so tuncc (lie oi'ig- inaf Ohio and Eric canal wa.s abandoned; but no matter how busy this new canal becomes, the old era, the picturesque old era of canal bargj ami riv-- - er boat, will not come back. The wheel has swung full cycle, but its second revolution will not, be like the first. There is a glamour about (hone old days. The river steamrrs, irnmortali/ca 1 by Mark Twain mid described fondly by hundreds of lesser writers, were gaudy, majestic, imposing, and—for all their much-atlvertistnl speed—very leisurely. The people who traveled on them were willing lo spend a week going ami coming. An;l Ihc canal boats, drifting OUT OUR WAY lustily down their brown clwanclsi, crammed full (jf farm product; uml manufactured sootls, were evuii more leisurely. Pcopl.; were busy, in those days, but they wc'ivit't in vt'i-y mticli of ii hun'y. Tho.-X' <!;iys wnn'i come back.

London is the arbiter in matters of dress for men. But, New York and Chicago, Boston and San Fra-ncisco and hundreds of smaller cities and towns throughout the United States may know what are the latest styles even before they are shown in Pa.ris. A seeming paradox, but true. Merchants maintain representatives in Paris, London, Vienna and other European style centers who cable the latest news of the modes, .a-nd ship samples long before they are sold abroad. In America, the news is translated into advertisements and printed by local newspapers throughout the United States. And so, American women are able to dress in the latest styles in dress more accurately than the women of any other country ' on the face of the globe. Advertising keeps you abreast of the times in other \yays. It tells you of the newest and best in every line of merchandise. It keeps you posted on what other 'people are doing and wearing and using. Read the advertisements. They are truthful and helpful. You can depend on their accuracy, for the reputations of the merchants sponsoring them guarantee their integrity. Read tfic advertisements to know what is yoiny on in the world of merchandise. i
