It Isn't that people do not wish to

Is but one conclusion.
' -i jji
Ono of the business magazines
prints n letter from n manufacturer
who explains that thcro Is not
enough profit In hli line to Justify
hint In advertising. This, or course,
Is chiefly Interesting as showing that
tho Idea still obtains In somo quar
ters that advertising bills arc nec
essarily paid out of profits, On tho
contrary, they nro paid out of tho
costs ot production and marketing.
Advertising lowers the cost of pro
duction by Increasing the quantities
produced, and at tho same tlmo It
substitutes tho cheapest soiling
method for the most expensive. Tho
denier who complains Hint his pro
fits aro Binall has only himself to
blame. The dally ncwsnnneni nro
nt his disposal, and it is tho function
or good newspaper advertising to en
hnnce pioflts without enhancing
prices to the consumer. Ilniu.
1 1 n advertising always brings In
creased business lo the producer. It
helps him grow With thn cpnernl de
velopment of the town.

this Is what he says ot it:
"And now tho dirty bubble began to
float. Not being n constant reader of
this particular paper, I knew nothing
of its mlBchlet until a week had gone
by. Then remonstrances began lo bo
tent to me from all parts of tho coun

From half tho States ot the Union

hullabaloo I have been silent. Tho
story was already widespread when
my attention waa first culled to It. It

piece of summer silliness, arguing
emptiness of tho editorial mind. I felt,
too, how easily a man makes himself
ridiculous In attempting to prove that
ho is not n fit subject for ridicule, nnd
how In tho long run character Is Its
own best vindication. I should ac
cordingly prefer to remain silent still.

that, now, when nil of us have had our

"Hut such persistent pursuit of an
unoffending person throws Into strong
relief four defects In our newspapers,
and especially In tho attitude of our
people tow-nrd them. In tho first place,
tho plan ot reporting practiced hcru
Is a mistaken one, nnd Is adopted, so
far ns I know, nowhero else on earth.
Our pnpcis rarely try to glvo an ord

of tho country as a diverting thing to

sexes, nnd to attribute to mo buffoon

"Again, our people seem growing In
capablo ot taking a Joke or rather
of taking nnythlng else. Tho lino
which parts lightness from reality Is
becoming blurred. My lively remark
has scned as tho subject for porten
tous sermonizing, whllo tho earnest
r.ppeal made later In my address to
look upon marriage seriously, as that
which gles life Its best meaning, has
been either passed by In sllenco or

"Tho part of this affair, however,
which should glvo us gravest concern
Is the lazy credulty of tho public.
"Nothing In nil this curious business
has surprised mo moro than tho ease
