You discriminating housewives who have tried Van Camp's Pork and Beans with Tomato Sauce—you are the ones who know from real experience o that there is positively no satisfactory substitute for Van Camp's. W You know this—but do you know why? It's because Van Camp's have the “extra" care—the “extra" skill—the “extra" touch, which means “Extra" Quality. And it's this “Extra” Quality which places the seal of superiority upon Van - Camp's and sets them apart from all others in your mind. # It gives to Van Camp's their spicy flavor, their piquant tang, their juicy richness, their delicious, appetizing taste. o From the farm to the can this “Extra" Quality is the dominant note in the production of Van Camp's. It begins with the raising of the beans, the tomatoes and the pork—continues # through all the processes of preparation—and finally goes into the can along with the plump and nutty-flavored beans, the delicious tomato sauce, made from vine-ripened tomatoes, and the tender slice of corn-fed, home-grown pork. a Fact is, the “Extra" Quality is an in- so o separable part of Van Camp's Pork and *, Beans with Tomato Sauce. It's the intangible, subtle element which has taught you to think Van Camp whenever you think of pork and beans. - It has proved to you that in Van Camp's | are perfectly combined the irresistible good* ness which is the dream of both the hungry man and the epicure, and the nutritive properties which give real strength and vitality. Would you be always prepared to open a can of “Extra" Quality in gastronomical emergencies? Then keep on hand a full supply of Van Camp's Pork and Beans with Tomato Sauce. But don't forget that “Extra" Quality means * Van Camp's.

45 per cent of the people you meet on the street are mere shadows of what they should be — they are too thin for their height. They lack in vitality – they are more open to attacks of disease—and they are not as attractive, and often less popular, than their fleshier friends. If you are toothin it is due to one or more of the following four reasons: 1. You cannot digest starch. 2. You cannot digest fats. 3. You do not assimilate what you eat. 4. You have a poor appetite. Peptol, the new food remedy, overcomes the difficulty in each of these four causes.
It adds flesh at a remarkably rapid rate. This has been proven beyond doubt by eminent physicians, professional men and hundreds of others who have used it. It is not a medicine—not a drug, but a pure food, the result of thousands of experiments by the greatest food experts in the world. It combines in highly condensed form vegetable fats, starches and carbohydrates - the very elements that build flesh. It is ready for immediate assimilation. It helps to digest other foods. It creates appetite. Peptol will increase your weight in 30 days. This we absolutely guaro antee. We cannot say how much you will gain o, in that time, but we know the increase will be substantial and permanent. If not we will return your money without question, and your word alone suffices. The first supply of Peptol will cost you $1. With it we give you a positive guarantee of increase in weight or no pay. Let it prove its worth. Send one dollar to-day and start to put on flesh. Our booklet “Why People are hin" is free. Address

NEW YORK, SATURDAY. MARCH 30, 1907
Cop, Thug & Co.
(I. “The policeman's lot is not a happy one,” sang the immortal Gilbert, who was thinking, no doubt, of the stage policeman. According to Samuel Hopkins Adams's revelations in this number of Collier's the policeman's lot in New York city is a very enviable one from a financial if not from a moral point of view. Mr. Adams asks some very pertinent questions about the inspectors and captains on the New York force. How is it that so many worthies wearing the municipal brass buttons, at a salary of from $2,000 to $5,000 a year, own their own houses, valued at from $15,000 to $50,000? Where do they get their diamonds and fine apparel ? Mr. Adams speaks with conviction, for if there were any doubt he would be saying some libelous things. The cop is in partnership with the thug, the prostitute, and the blackmailer. The ill-gotten gains of the Tenderloin are passed along among the “guardians of the law” on a percentage basis. These charges in no way involve General Bingham, who is impotent to “hire and fire.” How many of our American cities are in the same fix *
(L'In the issue of April 6 Collier's will publish an impertinent portrait of E. H. Harriman by an irreverent Italian who signs himself “Cir.” If that same signature, “Cir.,” appeared in a Parisian paper, Paris would laugh in anticipation, for “Cir.” has a wicked reputation over there as an idol-cracker. Although he sees the grotesque side of Greatness, his name belies his principles, for he is, in private life, the Duc de Cirella. His drawings have appeared in a popular portfolio called “Cartons Mondains,” depicting the follies of European affairs. To follow the picture of Mr. Harriman “Cir.” has contributed drawings of Mr. Roosevelt, Mr. Taft, Mr. Cannon, Mr. Morgan, and Mr. Fairbanks. We do not command our readers to laugh at these pictures unless they feel like it, but we submit the drawings under the influence of our own enthusiasm.
Our Secretary of Peace
(L In our issue of April 13 an article by Frederick Palmer on William H. Taft, sometimes called “our Secretary of Peace,” will appear. To oversee the war interests of our country may be a peaceful task, but it brings, little tranquillity to the Secretary. “Large bodies move slowly,” says the maxim, but William H. Taft is a magnificent exception to the rule. To be in Cuba, in Luzon, in Washington all at once, to speak pleasantly to an armored Datto and soothingly to an angry insurrecto, to order up treaties with one hand and dynamite with the other—these are a few of the things that keep Mr. Taft in physical training.
The Foundations of Happiness
(I W. H. Mallock, the Englishman who has stood so preeminently for a sane philosophy of life in this age of echoing theories, has contributed to Collier's a series of papers on “The Foundations of Happiness.” Mr. Mallock, in these essays, has put down the impressions of a cheerful mind turned upon a great many world problems and a few local conditions. He is one of those comforting souls who points out the fact that if all the cries of “Fire!” had been well founded the world would be a cinder by now. Nothing can discourage his optimism — not even the great American sky-scraper, which he views from afar as an impressive work of art. His articles
will appear under the following heads: “First Impressions of America,” “Happiness and Education,” “Happiness and Religion,” and “Happiness and Material Progress.”
