The mci chants over tho county have been mistaking' persuaded
into fidvertising of the mot cxrcnnve class that is tho circular put
up in the flinpc of a imijinzine. It is expensive because it is almost
fruitless. The- ciicuhir the nieiclinnts arc upending postage on has
absolutely no personality to it. The Ilardinsburg and Cloverport
meichatts weic sold the same circular. It contains a few pictures
and not a sirglo direct fact about, the store itself. If merchants have
dolkis lo spend on advertising in every way, shape and style, then
the sterohpid circular may be considered, but newspaper advertising
is the most sensible for tho merchant who bus to count expense.
Spend .$10 for an ad in Tho Breckcnridgc News and you get tho at
tention of 15,000 readers. Ten dollars for postage on 1,000 circulars,
like every other merchant is using, if he was persuaded, reaches not a
thousand renders because tho circular is not pcrhonal. And it goes
into the world unaccompanied with live news, social'gossip and town
talk that's dependable and attractive.
NO MORE DISAPPOINTMENTS.
"We should ive a vote of Thanks to the mail clerks on Tho Hen
dcrson Route for discontinuing tho Sunday mail. It must have been
a nuisance to our postmaster, who serves us so ofliciently six days and
nights in the week. Truly, it was a drawback to our churches. No
one will have u disappointment on Sunday now over tho letter that
didn't come. There is always compensation in keeping (in tho ex
treme, it might be said) tho Sabbath day, free from all labor and holy
EORGOTTEN APRIL SHOWERS.
President-elect Wilson will bo twom in as Piesident on March 4,
as piovidid by the Constitution, but the main inauguial ceremonies
will be postponed until Apiil 24. As his reason for making the pro
posed change Gov. Wilson gave the health of those participating in
the inaugural ceicmonies. March winds are not as disastrous to one's
health as April showers are to new frocks and bonnets.
Our Irvington coi respondent wiites: At the session of the
Southern Educational Association held at the "Warren Memorial
church, Dr. ChnilesC. Thatch, piesident of tho Alabama Polytech
nic Institute, fpoke on tho subject of "Tinining for Life Work in
the Rural Schools," drawing a picture of ideal conditions in rural
life, farms of from 35 to SOnctes, well tilled, well stocked, success
ful rotation of crops; farmers banded together for the production of
the best of every product for which they stand a solid phalanx for
tho highest maiket price. Eveiy faimer owning his auto, for this is
tho farmer's ally. His children being educated, not in tho "Little
Red Schoolhouse," too rften a black, unsanitary log affair, but in a
modern Consolidated Model School, where wagons cany the children
to and fro, thus enabling the child to continue in school from the age
of six to eighteen, and yet eat breakfast at' his mother's side and
sleep at night under his father's own loof. These aie conditions
which may reasonably be expected to bo brought about in our South
land by means of proper legislation. Tho teaching body should stand
for theso measures.
