has just notified tho:ie same packers
that no bids will be received until

On and after ? January 1, 1912,
Mr.1 James Izlar Sims will become
part owner and proprietor of The
Times and Democrat and its print
ing plant and - of Sims Book Store.
After'that date these enterprises will
be run under the firm name of Jas.
L. Sims & Son. For the last three
years Mr. James Izlar Sims has man
aged the business and'in the future he
will continue , to do so. He is no
trangcr to our subscribers and adver
tisers, having met thousands of them
since he has been in charge of the
business. In this connection we de
sire to thank our patrons for their
liberal patronage in the past, and ask
a continuance of the same kind treat
ment to the new firm. They will find
in the junior member of the firm a
young man in every way worthy of
their confidence and esteem.
Conditions Necesiliry to Success.
Every man who advertises does so
that it may benefit his business.
Very rightly he expects a financial re
turn commensurate with what he
spends yet not unoften he is disap
pointed. This is not the fault of ad
As a matter of fact three condi
tions are necessary for successful ad
and truthfullness. As to the first it
must be evident to every business
man of average discernment that a
puny little ad naturally creates the
impression that the man who inserts
it does not care to do much business
or else that he has but a poor stock.
As to the second an ad should be
made alluring. In size, wording and
arrangement it should at once catch
the eye and thereby focus attention
But the first two conditions are
useless without the third?that of
truthfulness. A merchant must
make good over the counter what
he offers in his advertisement. If he
fails to do this, not once or twice, but
habitually, the public puts no trust
in his representations and business
disaster inevitably fellows.
That the great majority of mer
chants are honest in their business
and faithfully portray the character
and quality that their goods, and of
the bargains they offer, is unques
tioned. As a rule they are men of
principle and also are shrewd enough
to know that a temporary gain result
ing from some misleading advertise
ment is sure to be followed by a per
In this respect the position of a
(local merchant Is vastly diffedent
than that of a mail order house.
The constituency of the local mer
chant is limited, that of the catalogue
house is practically unlimited. It
sends its literature all over the coun
try and thereby any misleading ad
vertisement does not react npon it as
it would upon the business man of a
small city or town. In truth it is well
known that many and perhaps most
of the articles advertised by mail ord
er houses are deficient in quality or
in weight and measure, and that
their customers do not get the bar
gains they suppose.
The local merchant who should do
this would speedily become bank
rupt. He knows that to gain trade
and hold his customers he must be
hone3t with his customers. There
fore what he states in his advertise
ment may almost invariably be relied
upen the mutual benefit of buyer
and seller. The ono lesson Is that
people should deal with the merchant
who keeps faith with them, and not
with houses that supply them with
goods not up to the mark.
On the first page of this issue we
publish from The State an outline
of facts and reports In which the
public Is much concerned because
they touch upon tht antagonism of
Governor Blease to the State Depart
ment of Agriculture and Industries
as now operated under the intelli
gent supervision of Col. E. J. Watson,
who has given much attention to the
duties of the important office he so
admirably fills. Col Watson may
not have conducted the office to suit
Governor Blease, but we feel sure
that he has conducted it to the sat
isfaction of the farmers and others,
who are more vitally interested in
lit than the Governor
Wo also publish In connection with
the same matter a. statement from
Governor Blease and Mr. Hudson.
While Mr. Hudson denes the state
ment that Commissioner Wat
son's place has been offered
him, he confirms the most im
portant part of the story, which is
that Governor Blease is opposed to
the Agricultural and Industrial De
partment, of the State as at present
managed and the Governor's threat to
veto the appropriation for its con
tinuance unless he is given "assur
ance of its doing some good for the
farmers." We have been under the
impression that the department has
been very active in helping the far
mers to get better prices for their
"It will bo recalled," says The
Stale, "that Governor Blease vetoed
tho appropriation for factory inspec
tors, who, under this department,
were required to see that the laws for
the. betterment of tho condition of
women and children In the mills
were obF^rved. His statement that
the agricultural department is a
farce and of no service to farmers
will cause a little surprise, because
within iixty days he denied a request
of fMarlboro farmers to take certain
action, on the ground that he was
not a former and was not qualified to
advise them as to their interests."
The Governor must have been taking
lessons In agriculture since he wrote
that letter to the Marlboro farmers.
Pageantry and Reform.
The visit of the king and queen
of England to India means far more
than a mere passing show. That the
spectacular display of goregous uni
forms, crowns, diadems and thrones
appeals naturally to and impresses
the oriental mind goes without say
ing. The British government
[shrewdly took advantage of this sus
ceptibility in the recent durbar. It
knew full well that the perfect riot
?of color, as seen in briliant uniforms
and dresses, the stirring -sound of
i music from massed bands, the
marching of thousands of troops with
? flashing bayonets, the booming of
guns and the rattle of musketry
would impress the people with a
sense of Britain's power and might.
But very wisely the government
has not contented itself with such a
display. The crowning of the em
peror of the ancieut capital ot Delhi
has been accompanied by two mani
festoes that may do much to allay the
discontent that has long existed
in India. One annunoces the change
of the seat of government from Cal
cutta to Delhi; the other speaks of
important administrative reforms
leading to a certain measure of self
government. Both acts are wise and
daring and not unlikely conservative
statesmen in England will view them
The decision to make Delhi the
capital Of the country will doubtless
give satisfaction to the Hindoos as
that city is so associated with the
ancient glories of India.. Also it is to
be hoped and expected that the grad
ual conferring of political rights up
on the people may be followed with
best results. The one great difficul
ty in this matter .ies in the religious
hatreds of the people, especially as
between Hindoos and Mohamedans,
and in the sharp and intricate social
distinctions of the innumerable
