The Supreme Court of the United States, in a decision just handed down, holds in effect that mail advertisers, even though they give purchasers value received for their money, are guilty of fraud if by exaggerated advertising propaganda they have led clients to expect more. The opinion was announced by Justice McKenna, reversing the decision of the district court in southern Florida, which held that if a purchaser received his money's worth exaggerated propaganda was not fraud. Justice McKenna took the position that it was an offense if the article sold did not serve the purpose represented no matter what the value might be. He said: "When the pretenses, or representations, or promises which execute the deception and fraud are false, they become the scheme or artifice which the statute denounces. Especially is this true in the purchase of small tracts for homes."
Creosoted wood blocks, already extensively used as paving material for city streets, have been coming into use as flooring for the last four or five years in factories, warehouses, machine-shops, foundries, various types of platforms, wharves, and docks, and for such miscellaneous purposes as hotel kitchens, hospitals, laundries, and slaughter-houses. Most of the blocks for these floors are now made of southern yellow pine, but hemlock, larch, Douglas fir, black gum, beech, and maple are also used. The blocks are sawed from long sticks of timber and are treated with creosote to prevent decay of the wood and also to prevent shrinking and swelling of the floor after it is laid. The blocks are laid with the grain vertical, so that the most wear-resistant surface is exposed, and usually on a concrete foundation.
