Newspaper the Shortest and Most Di

Newspaper advertising Is pretty
generally known to be tho best ad
vertising, but it Is worth while to havo
the fact emphasized by a man who(
not only has found out by experience,
but actn upon his knowledge.
In Moody's Magazine Mr. R. L. Gur
11 ey, manager of tho savings depart
ment of a prominent financial insti
tution, tells why newspaper space Is
most useful to bankers and others. Ho
"The newspaper Is now a control
ling, likewise a compelling, factor In
the life of every man and woman, and
wo ought really to Include every boy
and girl, for children nowadays are
omnivorous readers. Tho shortest
nnd most direct routo to tho attention
of all classes is the newspaper col
umn, for It is dally scanned by busi
ness men, professional men, mechan
ics, artisans all alike. Men, women,
too, want their favorite paper the very
minute it comes off the press, for
they crave tho news served up red
All buyers of space constantly nro
urged to Invest In mediums other
than tho dally press. Theso Mr. Gur
noy characterizes as "advertising
Jemons." Dally perusal of tho news
papers has come to bo an essential
part of tho day's activities to virtually
all who are able to read. A person so in
different to the progress of the world's
events as not to read tho newspapers
Is not likely to be a deslrablo customer.

LITTLE WORRIES IN ENGLAND
Ladles Demand Separate Compart
ments on Trains, and Then Re
fuse to Use Them.
They aro having a little difficulty on
English railroads. Somo fow years ago
a number of Indignant spinsters Bald
that It was a foul outrage that wom
en should bo required to travel in tho
same compartments with men, and
although the railroad officials knew
well thnt nothing short of a staff of
police could compel women to travel
anywhere else, thoy acceeded to the
demand and attached tho "ladles
only" label to tho requisite number
of compartments. But now comes
a new complication, and this time the
complaint Is from tho men. Traffic
has Increased enormously, the trains
aro crowded, and tho straphanger has
become nn Institution. But why, o,sk
tho men, should we hang to straps,
why should we be packed like her
rings In a barrel, while the compart
ments reserved for women are prac
tically empty? For that Is the fact.
The women will not travel In the
compartments reserved for them.
They would rather form a part of tho
perspiring multitude in the general
compartment than uso the accommo
dation that has been especially re
served for them. Now If a man ven
tures to invade a "ladles only" com
partment he Is speedily reminded of
his transgression by the stern hand
of authority. But the woman may
invade the smoker, and does invade
it, and has even been known to de
mand the extinction of all pipes and

nam.e is wisely concealed, says that

Want Two Engineers on Trains.
One of tho Important measures to
bo Introduced In tho next Connecticut
legislature is a measure to provide
that there shall be two engineers for
every fast express train In this state.
The bill has tho backing of tho labor
unions and has for its chief argument
that it would be conduclvo to public
safety and would save the railroad
company much money in life and
property damages. Tho expense, It is
argued, can bo looked at only In tho
light of a low price for a great public
