Washington, March 6— The Influ-

be felt In the fight over the armed

to bring to a vote In the
House Tneaday. Mr Bryan, who out-
rnnnd That Percent of I.M* Abmir lined hla vlewa In favor of warning
IHxfranrhUed Voter* In Adasas Americans off armed merchantmen to
lonnlj (».) Is Very Small. Representative Stephens of Nebraska,
— came back from New York this morn-
After close examination statement if ing and will spend the day here with
that there will be but sligh'
shrinkage In the number of votes from
the number disfranchised In Adams
county In the elections to be held thl«
year. The word had gone out that of
the 1.800 who were disfranchised by
Judge niair, probably half of them
had removed from the county or had
died. The Investigation that has now
been made brings to light that the onlv
material loss has been crented by
death. The belief prevails that Ad-
ams county will cast 1,700 mote votes
In the coming election than In the last
election. This discovery has been the
cause for quickened Interest being
found at every hand, that correct tab
ulation may be kept by those who will
look after the affairs of the dominant
Representative Bailey of Pennsylva-

Rules Committee Is framing Its rule
to bring before the House for action

Foreign Affairs Committee.
The report recommends that the Mt-

should be permitted to exercise his
constitutional right of handling dip-
lomatic negotiations without Interfer-

No matter how high prices of raw materials may go. you can ftlwsys
get goods for the same obi price. Leather muy double in oOSt, but
you can still buy a shoe for a dollar if you want it.
One sure way to avoid cheats is to buy advertised goods .just as
lar as jwssible. Cheap substitutes aren't advertised. At least not
by merchants doing business in their own neighborhood. The long
distance mail order man may sell tlicm. as the comeback is loo
difficult. Hut a store so located that poor goods can be taken back
easily isn't going to say much about then in public.
The only goods thai il pays to push are those made so stdidlj
that they will give satisfaction and induce the buyer to return and
buy more. That is the kind you read about in newspaper adverlis
