thin; to Relieve Them
Until She Took Cardoi.
Ceredo, W. Va.—In telling how she
was benefited by taking Cardul, Mrs.
Perlie Yelkey, of this place, says:
“At one time, I had a very serious
■pell which left me weak. At times,
I would suffer such intense pains
across my back and in my side that
X could hardly stand it.
“I endured this over and over
again. Every time the pains were
worse than before.
“I was In despair because nothing
helped me. I tried several reme
dies, but I continued to suffer.
“One day, I read about Cardul.
Other women told how they had
gotten strong and well after taking
It. I have often been thankful for
that day, for after I had taken Car
dul for awhile, I felt like a different
human being.
“It did not seem possible, but I
did not suffer the old, torturing
pains, and I really felt well. I can
heartily recommend Cardul. for I
know bow much I improved after
I took It. Since then, I have taken
It several times when I have needed
a tonic, and I have always been
benefited. It Is a wonderful help."
All good druggists sell Cardul.

Today, ot course, they are boys
no longer. One can't keep salting
away huge royalties and preserve
tlie post-adolescent wonderment at
the changing tastes of public that
demands entertainment. But in
those happy days they were as thor
oughly as tlie deliciously
natural cast that the Guild, cross
ing its lingers and holding its
breath, shoved to the stage of the
Garrick theatre.
Now. as "Spring is Here" plays at
the Alvin theater to mark the 14th
score and lyrics for this compan
ionable team, one can realize the
mlluence ot that modest but start
ling beginning at the Garrick. Into
a musical atmosphere where "love"
had to balance off with “moon"
there came a pair of music writers
who had the temerity to try two
two-syllable rhymes.
Of course, it had been done be
fore. Everything had. But
youngsters dug into the past and
brought forth an idea that seemed
orlgmal, so firmly had tlie tradi
tion of "love" and "dove" establish- ,
ed itself in the Broadway music
The influence of that radical
courage is plain to any one who
listens to the pseudo-songsters
warble their stuff along Broadway
today. In almost every score in
town there is an occasional at
tempt, not always successful, to
pair off a couple of multi-syllable
words. It's rather funny, when one
looks back at that first. "Garrick
Gaieties,'’ because the show was ex
pected to flop, and the music was
tolerated only because it seemed
to have the freshness of the debu
tantes who del. .Uely showed a bit
more thigh than the short skirts
current at that time.
Nobody held out any hopes for
those first, songs of a now famous
team, any more than the Guild
held out hopes for tlie girls and
boys who made up the cast. Yet
just as many of that first timid
corps are now important figures in
Broadway's musical comedy world,
so the Rogers and Hart team is in
constant demand.
Fourteen musical scores in four
years .because a gamble—a twenty
to-one shot—clicked! It is a bit
remarkable And it raises the ques
tion as to how it is done. The ques
tion calls for an answer because
so many of those 14 have been suc
cesses. With radio orchestras dis
interring "Manhattan," “The Girl
Friend" and "Thou Grand" so oft
en, Rogers and Hart demand expla
nation. and those three songs are
but a few of many that still linger
about, though the shows have clos
ed, as all shows have to do.
The two have no set routine.
Sometimes Rogers feels a melody
tickling within him and he jots it

High School Girls
Duck Marshal Under
Pump For Interfering
Mountain Grove, Me.—Things
never will be the same with C. J.
! Hinkle .town marshal of. Mountain
[ Grove.
I The marshal's new blue uniform
I never will be as well fitted and his
! star may never have the same
bright luster—for two dozen high
school girls recently concluded the
process of putting the. marshal "in
his place" by holding him under the
town pump while streams of verj
wet water poured upon him.
The marshal was trying to quell
a near riot when the senior and
sophomore girls of the Mountain
Grove high school waded into the
annual class fight with Hie junior
and freshman girls.
Marshal Hinkle, recently elected
and very proud of his uniform and
star and seriously bent on main
taining peace at any cost, hastened
to the campus to bring order out
of chaos.
But the young women would
have none of his peace-making ef
fort. Instead, the two hostice forces
quickly became allies and the mar
shal was seized and dragged across
the school yard to the tow'n pump
There, while he struggled in vain,
he was given a cold bath—uniform
and star and all.
It was not until a fire alarm was
turned in and Mayor C. H. Duvall
and Fire Chief Otis Sherrill drove
n hose wagon to the scene and
hitched up the hose and turned a
stream upon the young women that
the marshal was rescued from un
der the pump
But the marshal is not a bad fel
low at heart. He forgave the girls—
after having the new uniform clean
ed and pressed.

Vis was insinuated Thursday by j

holders’ meeting?
Opinion is divided In the candy

that business generally was not

thrpiigh paying bootleg prices for!
their liquor they haven't got any '
money left to buy candy with. Be- |
sides, people can't eat candy and
drink cocktails at the same time
At least it Isn’t usually done "
Mr Fieux said he believed the!
wide increase of smoking had prob
ably cut down the sale’s of candy!
to n certain extent because smoking
dulled people's taste for food ot !
any sort He pointed out that most
commercial tea tasters ere forbid

"I don't think it makes any dif

manager of the Fanny Farmer

Herman Helde, president of Her

fused to be drawn into the discus
sion, but confined himself to the
assertion that "business in the
candy industry is not good."
Robert H. F.llinger. vice president j
of Huyler's, had this to say: I
"Drinking of alcoholic liquors |
might curtail the eating of candy \
to the extent that sugar turns into '
alcohol and it may be that the j
same craving is responsible to a
certain degree for the consumption
of both. I think, however, that cig
