Ile presently arrived puffing and pct Spring. Whin ther came no Revenue to Captain North a tentative Knock at the door of room 722, he stooped and Glan cd through the Keyhole but on seeing nothing he gingerly tried Tho door and was puzzled to have it yield at his first pressure. A stand by a North a Only precaution was to cast Loose the buttons of Bis sack coat before stepping quickly inside. A moment later ban Kun followed him and closed the door. Neither Man spoke although the air in 722 was heavy with the distinctive Musty Sweet odor of blood and everywhere were signs of a violent struggle. They discovered the eurasian s body lying behind a thoroughly rummaged desk its Long face of ghastly yellow Bronze and its dressing gown of Scarlet no More Brilliant than the Pool which had formed beneath the head and shoulders. Someone it appeared had plunged a Large sailors clasp knife far in beneath or. A hens left Arm jut. A neat stabbing Job a North commented a and in the Hest Spanish manner. Urn looks like he a been dead quite a a six or eight hours at least closely watched by his chinese colleague the Man from g-2 dropped onto one knee fleeced intently at the knifes handle an instant then pulled out a wooden match and several times Slid it along that Slot in which the Blade normally would rest. Without comment he dropped the match into a clean envelope from the desk and got to his feet. A Finger prints to Jeu Quot a hardly expected any. We re up against the Cream of the crop to turned to the eurasian a coat. A maybe wed better take a look see. Ifs hard finding Chen like this but maybe we can learn something a shall i examine contents of late lamented a suitcase a i supreme subtlety might Caus alarm to be Given a Quot one does no to have to ask a was North a Brief comment a. He Drew Forth a Sheet of Bright yellow note paper already folded in the unique fashion of a Shanghai chit. On it he had already written it Hen f name. A please Tell the fit k clerk this is for or Chen but that its not Worth waking him for. Then come Light out inspector Chao Kun hurried Oft leaving North seemingly fascinated by a pair of Stone to dogs grinning ferociously outside the Gate of a Rich merchant s court Yard i he inspection lasted but a Brief while for feet tramping up from behind prompted the Man from 0 2 to look about. He experienced a Small twinge of excitement. A Chi.

An i thanks for the Shadow looks like it might got hot later so saying marshal Wang a chief of artillery tramped off along the sidewalk Spur chains clinking and gild ornamented shoulder straps faintly agleam. Fifty Yards Down the Street a very ragged hot water vender spat on his hands lifted his Load and raising a thin cry of a thai to hat you staggered along after the martial figure in Green and red. A whose baby Are you a North hummed when the Vendor passed. A looks like Kilgour a sticking to his theory or is it Yamanaka a neither he nor Chao Kun spoke when the latter reappeared to shuffle off up to the Avenue Eugene Bard As if Bent on nothing More important than an Early morning stroll.

A so Dankoff is in Shanghai so amazing i have not heard i must address chiding words to his haunt. Unpleasant Baron Well up on list of persons always to be Chao Kun sighed Quot and this incredibly stupid person supposed no one could gain City without suf feeling observation. So much for a never mind Chao it May have been an extra Good urn so a russian emigre known to Maryas Friend Kurt had come to Shanghai and had. In room 1315.

Food of the ancients rapidly reaching its stride in modern commercial life the soybean known throughout the Orient As a a the Little honorable Plant Quot has a useful history dating Back five millenniums. In the year 2838 b. C., emperor Shen Nung father of chinese agriculture listed some 300 medicinal 1 properties to be found in the soybean. In Manchukuo today where i two thirds of the worlds annual 6,000,000-ton crop is raised it is a Staple food. Soybeans furnished orientals the proteins lacking in a diet of Rice they con Tam 12 times the fat of Ordinary Beans Little sugar Content and no starch. Although introduced to the United states in 1804 by a Yankee ship master. The soybean was considered nothing but a Plant oddity until 1890. When its commercial and food possibilities were recognized by the department of agriculture. The soybean is now an important economic commodity. From its Oil and meal Are manufactured glue paints paper size explosives rubber substitutes and automobile plastics.

New York life 1905 $474,567,673 1933 $2,250,009,000. As a limitation on unsound growth Hughes proposed that a maximum of $150,000.00 a year be fixed for the writing of new insurance. The Sec will report wholesale disregard of this recommendation with these spectacular figures in 1929 alone the four companies wrote a total of Over 7 billion dollars in new policies. Since 1907, metropolitan has written in excess of $35,000,000,000 equitable More than 19 billion new York life Over 15 billion and the Mutual in excess of 9 billion. While each of the above four and theoretically controlled by their millions of policyholders actually he declared the latter have nothing to say about management. This is what Hughes charged a notwithstanding their theoretical rights policyholders have had Little or no voice in the management.

Nevada was originally built so close to the Nevada Cali fornia line that its citizens were Uncertain As to which state they lived in. Two sets of county officers were elected one for Mono county California the other for Esmeralda county Nevada. In 1863 a Survey of the state showed Aurora to be in Nevada so the Mono county records were driven to Bodle and the old courthouse became a Saloon. By Logan Clendening m. I. Ever since the practice of using one cigarette As a filter in a cigarette Holder has been going on i have been asked to pass an opinion on it. Up to the present i have had no dependable information but there have been several studies of late which allow us to answer these questions. I would have been inclined to say As a matter of opinion that the use of another cigarette As a filter increased rather than decreased the amount of nicotine which is obtained by the smoker. Certainly when you see one of those Limp things taken out of a cigarette Holder it looks pretty fiendish. However careful chemical analysis indicates that in some types of holders a Little More than half of the nicotine is removed and in other types about one third is removed. The filters made of chemicals Cotton wads or rolled paper remove from one third to one fourth of the nicotine. When two cigarettes instead of one Are used. Nearly 80 per cent of the nicotine is removed. Harmful substances these harmful substances which Are in cigarette smoke include car Bon monoxide. Which is present from i l/2 to i per cent in a cigarette. There is Over i per cent in the smoke from a pipe and from 6 to 8 per cent in the smoke from a Cigar. Strangely Stith tonal effect. It has been abundantly proved that it is the nicotine that produces the general reaction from smoking. It is a virulent Poison but it is combusted in the consumption of the cigarette and so rapidly blown out that there is not enough absorption to cause the serious poisoning which theoretically should occur. Effect on heart in studying the effect of cigarette filters on the heart or. Segal of Rochester a y., has shown that smoking half a cigarette produces a definite effect on the heart of those subjects under the age of 50. There is an increase in the pulse rate and a change in the electric graphic record of the heart. Those Over 50 responded to a much lesser degree to cigarette smoking. This is possibly due to the fact that tobacco is an irritant to the heart and older hearts do not respond As Well. In spite of the fact that the filters remove a Large portion of the nicotine the effect on the heart is just the same with a filter As without.
