Zck Chandler's rotum to tho Bonato
is to to hotly contested, it is eaiil.
His term cxp'ircB with this congress. A
convention of all tho clemauts in oppo
sition to him and the republican party
hae teen called for August 0.
Tnsanductoi tho Southern nowspa
pen in cotdemning Mr. Edwiu Hootli
because ho rtfusod to coutribm-
cBt to the Bufferors by tho Southern
flood, shows that they bclioro it is bet
ter to ba generous than just. Mr.Booth
very probably fools that ho has no
right to giro away a benefit, even to
eharity, While his estate is in bank
ruptcy. Chicago allowed Kochcfort to pass
through it without much ado ovor his
presence there. In New York city, ho
has been made a lion of has been in
terviewed by a 'Herald' reporter and
has leotured. He talks freely about
himself andthe affairs of France. The
following is his prediction and his
opinion about MacMahon and the near
future of Prance:
"MacMahon cannot last, threo
months; that is certain. He hasn't the
least idea about government and is
simply tho most proininout incnpnblo
in France. He doesn't know what to
do with his power, and the incapablcs
around him use him, poor man. An
Arab driver by nature and education,
what does he know about governing
the French? Thcro is only ouo thing
to do eleot a now assembly. Eighty
departments will elect Thiers, and
when the new assembly finds that they
will have to mako him president.
Btill Thiers is old aovouty-seven
and ho is conservative. Gambetta has
to qme. He is a statesman and would
mako the reforms that (he republicans,
who aro in such a majority, want. l)i
rectly MacMahon goes out there will
be an amnesty to political offendcro,
and then I'll roturn to France. I will
not go on a singlo pardon there must
ue a general amnesty."
Tun .following from! tho letter of
a Southern tourist is no doubt a truth
lul, although very sad commentary on
the condition of many Southern towns.
Tho influx of a littlo northorn omigra
tion, the acquisition of n littlo Yankee
vimj tup touch even of a little carpet
fcaggism would wako up theso South
ern towns into life and energy :
"Southern towns there aTe In exist
ence that are as untouched by tho
hands of to-day as though they wero
buried deeper than Pompeii of old.
They, are buried to ail. modern inter
est and purposes. Not a breath of air
breathed by live, active men and wo
men ever reaches thorn; not a ripple of
the great wave called progress ever
touchos their shores? they havo few
books, and anything they find in tho
newspapers boyond tho market, the
orops an'd.their side in politics, has no
meaning for thorn.
"Vet ihoy havo gentlemen and gen

THE OBJ EOT OF ADVERTISING.
Tho 'American Newspaper He-
porter,' published by (Joo. J Jlowell
A: Co. says "tho object of doing busi-
new is to make; money. If two or
more persons aro engaged in tho same
trade, under the name circumstances,
the ouo whose transactions are largubt
will not only mako most money, but
tho largest percentage of net profit.
For example : A sells $20,000 worth
of goods, which allows him an avorago
gtoss profit of 25 per cent, or 55,000
a yr7 For' Moro rent ho pays 8800;
tfor,aMistaiiU, 8500; for fire and light,
$100; for miscellaneous expenses, 8000,
a toUjof 82,000, leaving a net profit
of 13,000, In the paino town in a sim
ilar .store, an older merchant, longer
established'-aud better known, sells
240,000 per annum. 15 gets along
with about the samo reut, clerk hire
doubled, costing him f 1,000 whei;n A
pays but $500. IPs cntiro expenses
for tho year is $3,000, whjlo his profits;
aro $10,000 gross, 87,00o!not' or 17 J
per cent, on tho .business done, wllilo
A made but 15 per cent. net. Any
business man of cspcricuco will pro
nounco tho above exhibit fair. A plan
which will enable A to increase his
business to an '.aim out equal to that
dono by H without reducing his per
contago of profit, will be worth 81,000
a year. If nn expenditure of 82,000 n
year in advertising will doit, such an
expenditure would bo justifiable. If
an oxpcndiluro of 8 1,000 will innko A's
trade doublo that of 11'?, then such im
expenditure will not bo imprudent; lor
on the 830,000 of business there will
bo S'JO.OOO profit, from which to de
duct tho oxponscs, increased 8 1,500,
and 81,000 paid for advertising, wo
will have 810,600 profit, or SH.fiOO
more than mado by 11. It. has tho
larger trndo becauso ho is hotter known;
tho facts that ho is nn old merchant,
and long established, nro of no value
further than they huvo coiitrihulod to
mako him well known. Thoy have ad
vertised him. If A has equal advan
tages of character, capital nnd capac
ity, and is doing business in a roclnn
Wiforo (ho population nud distributing
facilities arc equal to tho support of so
largo a trade, lio may equal that of 11
as soon as ho convinces tho public of
tlio actual truth concerning his facil
ities. Advertising is tho means of in
forming tho public. Advertising at
tracts now customers. If thoy aro woll
treated they remain and bring their
friends. It is tuo roport of those who
trado witli'linn that makes tho reputa
tion of tho merchant.' One who has
never visited a store cannot npenk of
it from experience Advertising brings
tho cuntomer. He'MHST m: KKTAI.NKII
nv hki.nu wei.Ij 8Eiivi:t. No man
. . . n
can ilo business unless lie deals in
something that people waut. Unless
he has n clear field ami no competition,
he must not only kavo what is wanted,
but must havo'it.of the better quality,
at a cheaporpricc,or nerve it in a moro
satisfactory manner than his competit
ors, otherwise ho will attract only his
eharo ol the trade. Kvery successful
business maii must sceuro more than
his share. In trado it is important
that tho profit shall bo fair, but as the
markets arc equally opened to all, the
quality of goods offered by ono dealer
may bo as good as any other can afford
at the Fame price, tho 'stylo of serving
customers' theroforo becomes the natu
ral avenuo through which to lorco an
increased trade. Suppose, then, that
the price at which goods arc to be fold
is a fair, full, market price, the quality
tho host, selected with care and always
reliablo; attention must now ho paid
to the appointments for tho transac
tion of trade Klficicnt assistants must
bo secured and trained to understand
tho full valuo of prompt dealing, ready
and pleasant adjustment of errors and
careful attention to nil wants of ens
tomers. With nil of theso a good trado
can bo secured, provided tho custom
crs exist within a convenient radius
and aro made aware of tho facilities
which are offered for their accommoda
tion. The usual methods of attracting
business nro well known, and, to a cor
tain extent, ofluotivn. livery man has
uign to show his name and trade. A
handsomo display of goods attracts
casual observers. Hotter than tlic."c
aro tho commendatory words of cus
tomers who have boon ncrvotl and
pleased. A word in favor of a busi
nc.s house is often worth much. If
one person's good report is worth some
thing, tho couiuondations often will be
worth ten times as much, and of an
hundred still moro. Life is short nud
it is every man's ambition to mako a
fortune Every thing is sought which
will lend to hasten tho happy titno
when that fortune can ho counted as
made. Every' man prefers to trade
whoro ho has formerly traded. Tho
shrewd business man is theroforo anx
ious to necurc tho first possible ordor
from every man who has an order to
give. Tho earlier tho first order is so
cured the better prospect thero is of
making a regular customer at an early
day. A man intending to do business
must first prepare himself to meot tho
requirements of his customers; next
ho must let every possiblo or probable
customer know that ho is sj prepared.
In a small placo ho may toll nil the
people what ho can do. In a largo
villago a printed handbill, poster or
circular, properly distributed, will bo
eflicaoious, but whoever is in a placo
largo enough to support a newspaper
