Laughed at by some and called old
fashioned by others, the old almanac
is still interesting to many, and the
1913 almanac contains even more "in
formation" than usual. One of them,
just issued, indicates 1913 is going to
be somewhat the whole thing in years,
if its number is a trifle objectionable.
One learns that the year 1913 com
prises the latter part of the 137th Jand
the beginning of the 138th year of
American independence and that the
first of January is the 2,419,769 day
since the commencement of the Ju
lian Period. All this is interesting,
of course, but the events scheduled
for 1913 are more so. The eclipse
family is evidently to be feared. There
will be five of these, "now-you-see-it-now-you-don't."
On March 22 a
total eclipse of the moon will occur.
April G a partial eclipse of the sun is
announced. September 15th the moon
takes a few hours off and on Septem
ber 29, 1913, the sun will give the
Orientals and dwellers of the islands
of the sea a treat by sinking into
darkness. Easter Sunday falls on
March 23. Gladsome spring rollicks
in, two days before that. There's a
regular bugaboo day on the schedule
for 1913. Every one should have a
rabbits foot handy for Friday, June
13, 1913. This is a combination to be
feared by all superstitious persons.
According to the almanac, the usual
amount of moonlight will be turned
on during 1913 for the benefit of young
sweethearts. There will be more
tornadoes than usual in Missouri,
iowa, the Dakotas and Minnesota.
On March 4, when the new President
of the United States is due to be in
augurated, heavy fogs will envelop
Washington, D C, according to the
almanac. The government weather
bureau may think differently, but it
will be remembered tUat the govern
ment bureau was nearly put out of
business because it got "off wrong" at
the last inauguration.

Why Do Men Advertise?
The man who conducts his business
on the theory that it doesn't pay and
he can't afford to advertise, sets up
judgment in opposition to that of all
the business men in the world. Says
an experienced advertising authority.
"With a few years' in conducting a
small business on a few thousands of
capital, he assumes to know more
than the thonsands whose hourly
transactions aggregate more than his
do in a year, and who have made their
millions by pursuing a course that he
says doesn't pay."
If advertising doesn't pay, why is it
that the most successful merchants of
every town, large or small, are the
heaviest advertisers? If advertising
doesn't pay, why do business firms in
the world spend millions in that way?
Is it because they want to donate
those millions to the newspaper and
magazine publishers, or because they
don't know as much abont business as
the six-for-a-dollar merchantwho say?
money spent in advertising is money
thrown away or donated to the man
to whom it is paid.
Such talk is simply ridiculous, and
it requires more than the average pa
tience to discuss the proposition of
whether advertising pays or not with
that kind of a man. His complacent.
self-concoit in assuming that he
knows more than the whole world is
laughable and reminds us of the man
who proved that the world doesn't re
volve by placing a pumpkin on a
stump and watching t all night.

It is a source of general regret that
Columbia is to give the parting hand

companion and six interesting daught
ers who are to take their departure
for Winchester, Ky., next Thursday,
Rev. Crawford having accepted a call
from the Presbyterian Church that

Rev. Crawford is a minister of rec
oil ized ability and is always interest
ing, but in delivering his two last dis
courses, he seemed to be at his best.
The sermons were strong,touching and
pointed, commanding the closest at
tention. During his four ears stay in Co
lumbia many new members have been
added to the congregation, perfect
harmony has prevailed at all time,
hence it is hard to part with a pastor
whse four years work has been
crowned with success, perfect tran
quility reigning throughout.
The shaking of the haild is a serious
thing and the words good bye are
hard to say, but our people trust that
Rev. Crawford and his family will be
permitted to visit Columbia in the
future and mingle with the manv
staunch 'friends made during their
four years stay in our midst.
Since taking up their residence in
Columbia two of the daughters have
become grown Misses Mary and
