NATIONAL GEOGRAPHICMAGAZINE R-I-P'AA N' A practical journalist, long a member of the staff of the Washing ton Evening Star, resigned his position to go to Guatemala. Before he left Washington he had been a firm believer in the medicinal quali ties of Ripans Tabules, and took a lot of them with him to Guatemala, where he earned the friendship of the captain of the steamer, which sails from San Francisco and stops at ports in Central America, by making known to him the marvelous virtues of R-I -P-A-N -S, the medical wonder of the century. He often dilates upon the captain's enthusiasm about the Tabules and asserts that the people of the tropics suffer terribly from indigestion, and that the Tabules are now known most favorably throughout Central America.
