Dear Friends: I
I have been a very heavy pipe j
smoker for the last thirty years, and '
have always used Edgeworth To
bacco (Plug Slice) and find there is no I
other tobacco like it for a cool and j
well flavored taste. i •
I am in the vaudeville business, and i'
have traveled all over the world with '
my brother, and always have had very •
great pleasure in recommending your !■
tobacco; and many a time I have had
to pay double the price in different | •
countries for it, but I would sooner do ' •
that than smoke anything else, as I !
have tried all different brands. Id.
generally buy a one-pound tin and !'
roll it up: and believe me, gentlemen, ; |
it is real tobacco.

The Tavlor Players offer a very ]
rood bit of comedy, and mystery at
the Heiligi theater in “The Cat and
the Canary,” John Willard’s play,
famous as a thriller. Nearly all of
the characters are well cast and per
fectly at ease in their roles, but
several opportunities were lost to
improve the characterizations in the

show as usual as a comedian deluxe,

The scenery is.a trifle too plain
ind the properties are rather shabby

The superb character portrayal of
Margaret Mann is so different in its
appeal that even the most hardened
theater goers are moved to sighs
and tears. Mother love is the theme
of the entire picture and the direct

James Hall and Francis'X. Bush
man, as two of the sons, are excel
lent in their roles and give much
support to Margaret Mann, but both
are denied the chance to win laurels
for themselves. Critics have chosen
“Four Sons” as one of the ten best
pictures of 1928 and it certainly de
serves this distinction even though
it is a silent, drama. The perfect
portrayal of family life in Germany
has a charm all its own and the bits
of comedy scattered here and there
are of the very highest type.

You are looking at
The ha\vker of yesterday who cried his wares in the public
places is now but vaguely remembered—swallowed up in
yesterday’s seven thousand years.
Today the news of goods for sale becomes an indelible
record of human achievement.
You may take, for instance, the history of transporta
tion in America and read that extraordinary tale of pro
gress in an unbroken series of advertisements in the files of
newspapers—advertisements that inform us of each pro
gressive step from the sailings of sloops out of Boston
for Philadelphia in the days of Franklin, to the flight of
the Air Mail from Mitchel Field to San Francisco in our
You may read the startling story of the revolution in
household economy and the emancipation of the Ameri
can wife and home-builder in the advertisements of the
last twenty-five years.
But in today’s papers you find an even more amazing
record- —the advertisements of radio outfits, automobile
equipment, electjrical appliances, foodstuffs, clothing,
medicines—things which have raised our civilization to a
plane higher than the world has ever known. Do you
quite realize that in these advertisements you are exam
ining a contemporary contribution to the recorded history
It takes more than money to advertise
It takes honesty
