Middle West in the course of its fabriion. Doubtless there are many others. e ship Southern cotton to Massachusetts, 1 back to Texas in the form of manutured goods. The Western paper mills p paper to the East and the Eastern Der mills send their paper to the West.

Of the need of greater intelligence and elligent economy and expenditure I dly need speak. It is so obvious that it uires no demonstration, though it may aire much study.


My point is that the present depression business and every depression that has r occurred is largely due to waste-to waste of war, which is, I think, largely idable, to the waste of mistaken or orant speculation, to the waste of mate, of labor, of capital, and to unintelligent nomy and expenditure.

This Year

A grave dearth of story-plots now confronts motion picture producers. They will pay you handsomely for any suitable story-ideas. Literary genius is not a prime factor. Learn how you can write for the screen in your spare time.

5000 New-Story Ideas for Photoplays

(This figure does not include material needed for religious, commercial
and educational films)

This year, scores of new motion picture writers will be developed. Many of them will be men and women who never wrote a line for publication. They will be people with story-ideas who are willing to learn in what form producers want them submitted. $100 to $500 is being paid for comedies; $250 to $2,000 for five-reel dramatic scripts. This dearth in photoplays opens a wonderful opportunity for you.

A little over 2 years ago the photoplay famine began. Producers are now searching the country for new writers who know the technique of motion picture story-writing. Few can come to Los Angeles to learn. A plan for home study had to be devised. So Frederick Palmer (formerly staff writer of Keystone, Fox Triangle and Universal), assembled a corps of experts who built a plan of study which new writers could master through correspondence. It brings the studio to you. It tells you in clear, interesting language the fundamental principles necessary to market your ideas.

In only 2 years we have developed dozens of new writers. But the demand for more motion picture story writers is great-and growing.

$3,000 for a Story Plot

Our students come from all walks of life -mothers, school-teachers, clerks, news paper men, ministers, etc. One student, recently enrolled, received $3,000 for his first story. The recent successes of Douglas Fairbanks," His Majesty, the American," and "Live Sparks," in which J. Warren Kerrigan starred, were written by Palmer students. And many of our students have taken staff positions in studios.

Special Contributors

A series of lectures by the following foremost authorities, covering every technical phase of the motion picture industry is included in the Palmer plan:

Frank Lloyd and Clarence Badger, Goldwyn directors; Jeanie MacPherson, noted Lasky Scenario writer; Col. Jasper Ewing Brady, of Metro's Scenario staff: Denison

For those who are really interested in this great new opportunity we have prepared a book, "The Secret of Successful Photoplay Writing." It lays before you the Palmer Course and service in greater detail. If you have any story-telling ability, you owe it to yourself to write for this book. Remember that many photoplaywrights have never written a line for periodicals. Producers want outline plots written from a knowledge of their specific needs.

There is one peculiar thing to remember about the Palmer Plan: Unlike any other course in special training, one single successful effort immediately pays you for all your work.

"I won't carry throat germs to those at home"

Any druggist can tell you how widely Formamint is recommended by throat specialists, physicians and dentists.


All day long-in the office or shop, in the cars, the crowded stores-you have been breathing in germs of sore throat, tonsillitis, influenza, what-not. In the warm crevices of throat and mouth they multiply with incredible speed.

Perhaps you are in rugged health and they find no weakened spot to attack. But what of those at home? They may be less able to resist these armies of ill-health and the home-coming kiss may bear the dread germs of disease.

A pleasant almost candy-like-Formamint dissolved in the mouth now and then during the day makes the mouth fluids antiseptic, keeps germ-growth within bounds, and forms a strong defence against disease.

If the throat is already sore, the frequent use of Formamint keeps the membranes bathed in this splendid antiseptic, allavs inflammation, prevents new infection and gives the tissues a chance to heal.

Children are glad to use them and should do so freely, as crowded school-rooms are fruitful fields for the spread of throat infection.


Formamint is our trade mark. It identifies our product.

An example of the extreme democra of present-day conditions in Russia is give in George Lansbury's "What I Saw in Russia:" "One night I suddenly said that I would like to go to the theater. We asked our interpreter to ring up and try to get us seats. He came back beaming; we were to have the Czar's box at the national theater. So off we went, only on arrival to discover that a couple of working-class families had got there before us and we had to be content with the next box."


Advertisement writers are usually meticulous to a degree and know what they want when they prepare their copy. Some times they make mistakes, according to a writer in the "American Printer," but want their copy followed just the same. He cites an instance: An advertiser's copy read: "A few ladies' waists, just a might soiled." This was changed to "mite" by the compositor. The advertising man rushed in when he saw this in print and had it changed back to "might." He rea soned thus to the astonished printer: "A mite," he said, "is something you find on hens, not on ladies' waists!"

The sagacious countryman sometimes delights in "putting one over on the alert city visitor, and occasionally makes a retort to which there is no rejoinder. An example from "Harper's:" One Saturday evening three Boston men arrived at an ancient seaport in New England. "What a desolate country!" one of them exclaimed as they drove to the solitary hotel. "We certainly have come to the jumping-off place this time. I don't believe we can even get a Sunday paper in this place. Can we, driver?" "Wal, not to-night!" the

driver drawled.


The Piedmont and Northern Railway is one of the Southern roads that are their job" of unloading freight cars, according to the "Railway Age." Fifty-seven cars loaded with automobiles recently arrived at its yard in Charlotte, North Carolina. A specially contrived derrick picked off the automobiles at the rate of about one every two minutes, and the fifty-seven cars were, it is stated, all unloaded and returned within twenty-four hours.

"When General Grant was proposed for a second term as President of the United States, the cry of 'Cæsarism' was raised." So reads an article in the December "Atlantic." This should read third term, a subscriber writes, and reminds us of the famous "306" delegates to the Republican National Convention in 1880 (after General Grant had been out of the Presidential office for four years and was again proposed as a candidate for President) who stuck by Grant till the thirty-sixth ballot. On that ballot James A. Garfield, who had not a single vote on the first ballot and only one on the second, received a majority of the votes and became the Presidendential nominee of the Republi


People of modest means who shop in Fifth Avenue stores sometimes wonder at the expensive articles seen there. An observing citizen recently reported that in one ultra-fashionable shop jeweled mesh bags could be had for $1,400 p, and hatpins for from $4,000 to $5,000. Do the Cuban millionaires get all these things? or

Indian princes? or South African nabobs? And what does a hat cost that bears a $5,000 pin?

The official printed roll of the Cherokee Indians, a subscriber writes, contains many queer names. Here are a few samples: Runabout Mink, Sunday Hogtoter, Lee Galcatcher, Ben Hungry, Anna Longbone, Jack Rabbit, Sister Rattlingourd, Goingsnake Kingfisher. It would be interesting to know whether these names are actually used by the Indians or whether they are merely English equivalents of presumably more mellifluous Cherokee syllables.

New Orleans has jumped ahead of Galveston, New York, and Baltimore as the greatest grain-exporting port of the country. Until last July the three cities named headed the list in the order given. This year, according to "Shipping," New Orleans will probably nearly double the grain exports of any previous year.

The jobless but persevering man applied to the stage manager for work, says the "Argonaut. " The manager was hearing the candidates for the chorus. He asked the persistent applicant to sing. The man responded with some hesitation. Disgusted, the manager stopped him. Why, you can't sing a note!" he said, wrathfully. "I don't claim to be able to sing," was the reply; "and I don't want to sing. am a stage carpenter. I only sang to please you people."


"Topsy-turvy" pronunciations:

"When I was a small lad, an older brother read from the Bible, ' And Moses was an oyster man, and made ointment for the shins of the people.' When I grew up, I found that he was something of a joker and suspected that this home-made Scripture was an evidence of this propensity."

"The Ten Commandments must be interpreted by the Sermon on the Mount,' said the minister. One member of the confirmation class wrote this: "The Ten Commandments must be turpled by the serpents on the mountains."

A reader sends in this example of newspaper English:

"We urge our patrons to report irregu lations in the delivery service."

"Your story of the visitor to the English church who didn't think much of the choir because they had to sing Amen over so often reminds me of another," a subscriber writes. "A small boy went to a revival meeting. A woman evangelist addressed "NO NIGHT THERE"

the meeting. The boy afterwards said the woman preached a fine sermon but 'wouldn't do what the preacher told her to.' What do you mean, Johnny?' his mother asked. "Well, the preacher said Amen two or three times out loud so any one could hear and she wouldn't stop talking.'"

Vapo resolene,

Established 1879

The Vapor Treatment for Coughs and Colds

The time for Vapo-Cresolene is at the first indication of a cold or sore throat, which are so often the warnings of dangerous complications.

It is simple to use, as you just light the little lamp that vaporizes the Cresolene and place it near the bed at night. The soothing antiseptic vapor is breathed all night; making breathing easy, relieving the cough and easing the sore throat and congested chest.

Cresolene is recommended for Whooping Cough,
Spasmodic Croup. Influenza, Bronchitis, Coughs
and Nasal Catarrh. Its germicidal qualities make it
a reliable protection against these epidemics.
It gives great relief in Asthma.

Cresolene has been recommended and used for the past
forty years. The benefit derived from it is unquestionable
