HE toy industry abroad, especially in Germany, which has been the greatest toy country, is essentially a home industry, according to a prominent American toy manufacturer. Here it is a machine industry. "One American concern," he "produces six thousand mechanical trains daily, which are stamped out on ninety punch presses. A factory is now planned which will produce a million toy balloons every week. These toys are produced here at a cost which cannot now be duplicated abroad." Mechanical toys from Germany, however, are now appearing in the New York market, some of them of remarkable ingenuity, including a comical tin dognot a dachshund!-that throws back somersaults.

Latin quotations used in a charge to a jury are criticised by an Indiana judge. He says, as reported in the New York "Times:"

The first objection addressed to this instruction is that the court should not have used Latin in its charge to the jury. We concur in that criticism. The presumption is that jurors do not understand Latin, and there is no justification for the use of Latin in instructions. The Latin words, phrases, and sentences used in our law books have no place in the court's charge to the jury. Their meaning can be expressed with as much force and elegance in English, and a just pride in the accurate use of our National tongue would facilitate the administration of justice.


The astonishing agility and grace some famous dancers often makes their admirers a little envious. The feeling is well expressed in the following paragraph from the "Dramatic Mirror:" "Pavlowa is something spiritual. How I hate my heavy, lumberly, clumsy body after seeing what she reveals to me of the possibility of etherealizing motion! Such grace! Such harmony! Such rhythm! She weaves wings into your thoughts and invests you with spirit."

"We guard against germs

our throats

Any druggist will tell you how widely Formamint is recommended by throat specialists, physi cians and dentists.

"We first became acquainted with Formamint when our doctor, several years ago, prescribed it for an epidemic of sore throat. You know how it runs through a family.

"We like Formamint because it relieves so quickly and is so much more convenient than gargles and sprays, especially for the children who hate such remedies.

"Then you remember the 'flu' epidemic.
How fearful we all were of crowded, stuffy
places; theatres and shops; crowded cars and
illy ventilated school rooms. Again the whole
family 'Formaminted' their throats and mouths,
by using the pleasant tasting tablets freely,
whenever there was danger of contagion.

"Formamint must be really antiseptic, be-
cause none of us had the 'flu', and few had
sore throats, that whole winter.
You can put
our family down as Formamint enthusiasts.''



Formamint is our trade mark. It identifies our product.
