It was due to his wife. It was well- known in Chicago that the speculat- or wheat king is intensely religious. So is his wife. When the newspapers began to print stories showing that the size of bread loaves had ben re- duced because of the Patten holdings and that the children, oi the poor were suffering, Mrs Patten begged her husband to let go some of the wheat he held. out of" it, she is said to have pleaded in order that the poor might be relieved of their distress. And thereupon Patten sold bushels of wheat at Then he sold more retain- ing only his "cash wheat.' "Patten could easily .have squeez- ed purchasers and kept the price of wheat up as high as even, if he had wanted several grain men declared yesterday. Rev. E. T. Evans, Who Eloped With Miss Davis, a Sarnia Girl, in Wales With First Wife Port- Huron, Mich., Apri bigamy charge that..once seemed like- ly to be pressed against Rev. Evans T.' Evans, former rector of St. John's Episcopal "Church in Sarnia, in con- nection with his elopement and sub- sequent marriage to Miss Davis, .a young woman member of St. John's choir, will probably 'be- dropped. Mrs. Theresa Bolan, Sarnia, close friend of Mrs. Evans, says she -has received a letter from Mrs. Evans, who is in Wales, stating that the dif- ferences between herself and her hus- band have been patched up, and that they are living together. She has no desire to prosecute him since the death of the young woman with whom he was infatuated. The Canadian Frtifht Seeking to Evil To prevent the trouble and expense caused by freight being lost or dam- aged in transit the Canadian Freight Association is circulating amongst the freight agents of the different railways an illustrated booklet which shows why freight is lost or damag- ed, and how this source of loss can be avoided. In the brochure a strong point is made of the absolute neces- sity for having all freight shipped in proper shape and plainly address-.-l. Amongst other things that men and shipers should remember the booklet makes .the following "Shippers and consignees blame the carrier when a shipment di freight fails to reach destination or is deli- vered to consignee in a damaged con- dition. But a small number stop to think it is their fault more than the, carrier's. In the beginning, the fun- damental rule of carriers in accept- ing -merchandise was the requiring of each package to be plain'y mark- ed, showing full name of consigns and destination. From a .-itiingness to oblige patrons this vital require- ment has been so far "side-tracked." so to speak, that 'it is not unusual for bales, bundles, and pieces to -be accepted without any marks. Coupled to the disappearance of full marks came the gradual decline in the strength of packages in which goods are shipped. Boxes and sacks are made of thinner- material, crates are substituted for boxes, and sacks are now being used by some shippers for articles which should not bo shipped in 'them. To insure the prompt and safe delivery of goods, it is necessary for the .shipper to plain- ly mark each and every package, bundle or piece of an less carload shipment, showing this information: Consignee's, name in full; bill of lad- ing destination in full; state in which destination is located; if more than one station in same state of same name, full name of county must be shown; al! previous shipping marks must be obliterated. The name of consignee and destin- ation must be legibly written or sten- cilled, and as far away from any other writing or marks as possible. It is a great help to all .when the. shipp- er's name and location are also shown with the word 'from" preceding them. Every package, bundle or piece of- fered for shipment should, be present ed to carrier in condition to stand the wear tear- not only via all-rail routes, but also the additional hand- ling incidental to transportation via rail and water routes. SEVEN BABIES TOSSED TO HIM A Big Policeman at- New York Fire Caught Five of Them; Other Two Had Skulls Broken New York, April lives were lost, six persons are missing, and fourteen others are in the hospi- tals-as the result of an incendiary fire which gutted, the .six-storey dou- ble-decked tenement house at No. 37 Spring Street, in the heart1 of the Italian quarter, early today. Officer Brossner, a former ball player, saved five lives. Seven, babies were thrown down to hiny in almost as many se- conds, and the, big, policeman manag- ed to catch five of them while another had its brains knocked out on the curbstone when it slipped through his hands, and another's skull was fractured .by striking his; helmet Nand bouncing off. A RANCH SOLD (Macleod Advance) The P. Grier ranche of 160 acres, situated on Willow wag sold according to instructions on Satur- day last, G. F. Beere auctioneer, wielded the hammer. Mr. R. B.

STORES TH'AT ADVERTISE Two children approached their mother, asking her. if they might play- store. She consented, with the injunction "Be very The chil .dren remarked, "All right; we will pretend .we don't advertise." Advertising is the difference be- tween a quiet business and a husV ling one. It is pleasant'to hear the front door of your- store open and shut many times during the day, and to have your clerks busy selling goods to customers. Customers do not come to your store simply because your store: is open. They are attracted there by some -particular reason. The idea in advertising is to increase the attrac- tion so that you might surround your self .with a continuously growing num ber of customers. There are some business men who tell their customers that the merch- ant who advertises, charges the ad- vertising expenses 'to. the customer while they give the. customer dye per cent, off their purchase" in by saving their cash receipts. Such is not the case. An advertiser by the use of the news papers creates-new business and in- creases his business so much that his general expenses are lower than those of the non-advertiser. His turn-over being so-much greater he can afford to take lower profits and still make more money. There lire not. many advertisers who spend five per cent, of their turn-over for advertising, about one per cent- being the aver- age. Another feature of "the advertised store is that there are; no old and shop-worn goods, the-quick turn-Ov- er of all lines keeping the stock fresh It to buy at advertised stores, even when paying the same prices as at unadvertised stores. You will get better value to fresher stock. OFF FOR THE WEST Toronto, May hundred homeseekers left here yesterday for Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
