-For the business man : There are businesses that hare succeeded with very little or practically no advertising. There are also businesses that have succeeded without personal canvassingl or representatives, but the permanent successes hare been built by the judicious use of both. Germany, according to the religi-! ous statistics of the Empire, has an increasing number of persons without any religious profession. The number has grown from 17,000 in 190;7 or nearly 206,000.

The unknown said nothing, his name was Neil Forsyth. Miss Hammerstein, accordingj to New Yorki interviews, is not lacking in her father's aplomb. She is declared to have said that it was "just bully to see pa smoking) a cigar in the vestibule of the London Opera Hbuse and dukes and countesses driving tip and beseeching' him to find them a seatl"
