A BENEFICIAL CONTEST.
A Clovorport, Ky., merchant is stimulating tho boys and girls of
his town to qualify then. selves for n vocntion that few people any
where ever undertake that of advertisement wi iters and managers
of tho advertising department of firms which employ a manager to
handle their advci tiding business, became advertising has become a
rccular feature of every business in the country, and is the first es
sential to be considered by any business, because publicity is abso
lutely impeiativc in any undertaking that is to attain to any degree
of piosperity worth tho wholo time and attention of a man of more
than very ordinary business ability.
Th Cloveipoit merchant offers cash prizes for the best written
and mofct catchy ndveitisunents, bnscd upon plain facts and figures.
Many boys and girls of that town are contestants for these prizes.
The Inquirer makes the prediction that this juvenile contest is
going to develop somo advertising experts at Clovcrpoi t who will
land in high-salaried positions, because it is a wide field which has
many valuable openings for those who are competent to enter therein
It is a Held which is almost monopolized by men, but who knows
but what some Clovcrpoi t eirl may some dny be in charge of the ad
vertising department of one of tho big business concerns of this
country? Several of tho girls there have lain tho foundation for a
useful, caieer in that line of work by entering the contest for tho
piizes offeied by a progressive "home merchant," and it is -oted that
in tljiee of these contests a girl has been the winner every time.
Tho Clovorport business man is to be commended for putting on
a contefct which can not fail to prove to be greatly beneficial to some
of the contestants in tho future. Owcnsboro Inquirer.
Marion Wentherholt, our aggiessivo business man, should bo
grateful to the Inquirer for pointing out tho value of tho opportunity
he is giving to the Clovci port High School. Coming from tho city
duity papers the students will be more impressed of tho fact that tho
road to success begins at home. Every boy and girl should learn to
write their thoughts, ard a better way can not bo found than ad
"writing. A man knows his own business better than anyone elso, but
there is not a man in a hundred who can put that knowledge in
Avriting attractive enough to win attention. And that is why so many
business men can not make advertising pay bread is not good unless
it is made right, and advoitisii g is useless unless it is written and
fore tho Pujo Investigating Committee. Mr. Baker, whose dominance
in tho world of finance is said to bo second only to that of hia friend
nnd ally, Mr. Morgan, conceded, at tho end of two days of question
ing by Mr. Untormycr, that tho concentration of tho control of credit
in tho hands of a few men "has gone about far enough;" that "if it
cot into bad hands it would bo very bad;" thnt safety in tho present
situation lies very much in the personnel of tho few men who control;
and that this is "not entirely" a cbmfortublo situation for a gi;cat
country to be in.
"Tho 'Money Trust' has surrendered," exclaims tho Springfield
Republican, which argues that after such testimony it will bo impos
sible for tho money power to oppose remedial legislation with tho
plea that things arc well enough is they are. Mr. Bakor'a "very
candid and patriotic admission," continues Tho Republican, "puts an
nnrl tn flin llciiiicQinn wlmftint. n f nnnu TVnaf f hrnatnnu frlin nmtnf rv "
and "points the way more unmistakably toward tho need of legisla
tion which may intelligently, conservatively emancipate tho nation
from tho dangers inherent in any private financial oligarchy, how-
over conscientious ana well-intentioned it, may be." iwon so con
servative a paper as tho Now York Times remarks that "tho country
had already como to tho conclusion which Mr. Bakor,fivows, nnd
which, therefore, it is necessary to bcliovo tho system will not op
pose, that concentration has gono lar enough, and that a chango of
system is necessary." This concentration, declares tho Louisville
Post, "is a menace to the country today; a menace to industrial pro
gress; a menace to financial stability."
Editor Brisbane, of tho New York Evening Journal, sa)'s,tlwt
advertising in tho country papers, properly utilized, is the most val
uable advertising in tho world for its cost, and urges advertisors to
tako advantage of tho opportunities offered by tho country news
papers. He says ho don't own and never expects to own a country
newspaper, but ho knows their value and their influence. Ho goes
on to say that a country editor with 500 circulation or more, for his
weekly, can talk to five hundred good, typical American families, hi I
purchasers, all desirable customers, and through his advertising col
umns, is tho trusted and valued agent and promotor of at least ten
great inclutritil merchandising concerns, and is able to soil every
thing. His leaders, ho suys, buy everything that is for sale; from
nails to pianos, from pills to automobiles. They buy paint and roof
ing and stoves and lamps, and hundreds of commodities that tho city
dweller never buys; and what Mx. Brisbane says is true, evory word
of It. It is time the country merchants wero waking up to tho op
portunities given them through tho country press.
Oscar Black, of Addison, is in Louisville today attending tho
State Progressive Convention. Ho is a very enthusiastic Bull Mooser,
and says a full ticket will bo put in tho field for all Statu and county
olliccs. Mr. Black's friends are anxious for him to stand for County
Court Clerk. Ho did not say, however, that ho would be a candi
date. Ho did say though that there would be no compromise with
THE "MONEY-TRUST" ADMISSIONS.
(From Tho Literary I)lest.)
The "Money Trust" has not only walked calmly into tho open
and acknowledged its existence, but it has even admitted, by impli
cation, that it may requiio ipgulatiin. Such at least is tho view many
papers take of certain statements mudo by Mr. George F. Baker be-
The City Council don't believe in newspaper publicity. It costs
too much. City Ordinance No, 3627, says: "Tho City Clerk shall,
at tho end of every fiscal year, make a full and detailed statement of
receipts and expenditures of the preceding year, and a full statement
of the financial affairs of the city, which SHALL he published."

Atmospheric Conditions Make Revi
sion of Schedules Necessary In
Instead of slowing down a few of
the extra faro, extra fast trains, tho
speed of nearly all passenger trains la
to bo slackened.
Tho plan is to make a genera
lengthening of passenger train sched
ules, that Is, all main lino trains that
may be In any way considered In the
through routo class. This takes In
probably CO per cent, of all passen
gor trains. Tho present plan Is to deal
with trains that operate 200 or 300
miles up to 500. Tho exception to tho
slower cards will bo to tho south,
where tho weather Is not considered
sulliclently severe to Interfere with
On tlmecards becoming effective in
many of tho big western roads tho
schedule scores of passenger trains
Is strung out to tlmo cards considered
safe. Tho managers say It Is farci
cal to advertise these fast trains In
winter, whon they cannot meet their
schedule moro than ten per cent, of
tho time. Tho locomotives will not
steam, and snows and other atmos
pheric conditions koop trains delay
ed, and tho public bccomcB aroused.
Tho railroad men arguo that the pub
lic will bo better satisfied to havo
slower trains and havo them operated
on tlmo. Chicago Examihdr.
CAR SEVEN MILES FROM LINE
Coaches Have Been Known to Wan
der Far, but This Is Believed to
Be the Limit So Far.
Tho numbors aud initials of carB
sometimes becotno so blurred and in
distinct that tho road on whoso lino
thoy aro finds itself unablo to tell who
their proper owners are. Some time
ago, on a Michigan road, a car had
been lost tranlr (it wunnll anil (ha
most diligent search failed to reveal
Its whereabouts. A farmor finally vol
unteered tho Information to tho lost
car agent that tho car ho was looking
for was about "soven miles from tho
track back In tho woods." Tho agent,
on investigating tho matter, found this
to bo true. Tho previous winter a
temporary track seven miles long had
been laid back in tho woods from the
main line to a lumber camp. Somo-of
tho contractors at the camp being in
need of a comfortablo kitchen, had
appropriated a car for the purpose, re
moving tho body from tho trucks,
which wero then Bhovod In a ditch
and covered with brush.
In tho spring when the temporary
track was taken up, this car wbb over
looked, with tho result that it was
left stranded in the wood seven
miles from tho place it should havo
Electric Baggage Trucks.
Tho uso of tho baggage truck haul
ed or pushed by human muscle is no
longer used by .many progressive rail
road and steamship companies. Tho
now idea Is a low deck, heavily built,
four wheel, storago battery driven
platform truck which moves tho
trunKs anu Dags or travelers in a
quantity and at a rato of speed which
consists with tho modern transpor
tation of tho passengers thomsolves,
Ono ruck of tho now typo, operated
by tho baggageman standing on a
small platform at tho end, has a rated
capacity of 4,000 pounds and Is geared
for threo speeds, tho maximum being
eight miles per hour ompty and six
miles per hour loaded. These little
giants of transportation aro finding
favor also in mall handling and in com
mercial warehouso work. Tho ofil
cioncy in handling mail bags, for ox
ample, 1b shown by tho fact that an
electric truck can make five tripe with
a load of two tons in tho time re
quired for a hand truck to make four
tripes with a ono ton load; In other
terms, , a single electric truck does
