The Latter Trace Their Orlarln
Rome Lone Before the Christian
Bra The Paper That Was Publish
ed ay Queen Elisabeth.
The germ of newspapers is found in
ancient Rome. The government some
two centuries previous to the Christian
era is .known to have promulgated its
edicts by means of written rapers affix
ed to pillars. Nor was there much dif
ference between the stvle of these acta
dinrnia. as they were termed, and that
which now prevails farther than that
the former were more brief and simple
and deficient in introductory phrases
and the editorial "we." They generally
gave the news or occurrence in simply
indicative sentences without introduc
tion or comment of any kind.
Most of these acta which have been
preserved are found to mention but one
or two events. They are headed with
tbe date in Roman fashion and the
name of the then consul and para
graphs such as the following formed
the 6taple: "It thundered, and an oak
was struck with lightning on that part
of Monnt Palatine called Snmma evia.

consul, sacrificed early in tbe morning

many centuries after the fall of the Ro

that at every town they approached in
central Europe they inquired if it was

their destination, their exploits would

travel fast. Every little community
must then have lived nulVh within it
self. It was not until the sixteenth century
that anything at all approaching even
to the scanty Roman acta dinrnia can
be found to have revived in the modern
world. The war which tho Venetian re
public waged against the Turks gave
rise in 15G3 to the custom of communi
cating the military and commercial in
formation in Venice by written sheets,

be applied to the news sheet itself both
in Italy ami t ranee and subsequently
in England, when this mode of impart
ing news came into use.
The Venetian government eventually
gave these announcements in a regular
manner once a month, but they wero
too jealous to allow them to bo printed.
Only a few written copies were trans
mitted to snch as subscribed and paid
for them. Thirty volumes of these vain
aDle manuscript newspapers exist in
tbe Maglia Bechian library at Florence.
About tho same time advertising wants
commenced, the father of Montaigne,
the celebrated essayist, being credited
with the suggestion for making the
wants of individuals known to tbe pub
lie in Franco, These were received at
f32Sce3 established fcr the purpose and
were first posted on the walls of public
places, receiving the naraes of aniches.
In time this led to a rystematic and
periodic publication in sheets. These
were termed affiches in consequence cf
their contents being originally fixed np
as placards, though the word itself is
French for advertisement
It is to England as represented by
Queen Elizabeth that tho honor of com
mencing printed sheets of public intel
ligence is to be ascribed. When the
Spanish armada threatened an invasion
of this country, that sago queen, re
marking the disadvantage of tho vague
and alarming rumors which circulated
everywhere, resolved, to inforjn Jier peo
ple ' truly tt tbe impending dangers.
She began to publish from time to time

in those days was also the dentist and
often performed other duties. A sign
discovered in southern France recently
shows how versatile it was possible for
a man to become. The sign dates back
to the last century and reads:

"And how much do you want for
it?" said Landseer.

"Is he indeed V" said Landseer. "I'm

was coming away he noticed a large
picture by Stanfield. "May I ask what
you want for this Stanfield?"
"That, eir, is also 2,000 guineas."

bis forehead and imitating the dealer's
gesture. "Is Stanfield gone too?"

"The popping Etone" marks the spot
where Sir Walter Scott asked Miss Car
penter to marry him. It is situated in
the beautiful valley of the Irthing, at
Gilsland. an inland watering place near
Carlisle. The popping stone is visited
by many thousands during the summer
months, and, it is said, many a laggard
lover has had his courage screwed up to
popping point at this romantic spot.
In the immediate neighborhood may
also be seen "Mumps Ha," which Scott
immortalized in "Guy Mannering,"
while a little farther afield the Roman
wall and Laner cost rriory prove attrac

Famous Ozark Fruit Belt
The most productive apple and peach country in the world.
An Acre of orchard yields from 15100 to $300 worth of fruit
The attention of investors in past years has ljeen drawn to the profit
of fruit growing and many have given up occupations in ollico and on
farms to engage in what has been described to bo au ideal life. Lack of
knowledge and experience has, however, often sadly interfered with tho
hoped fcr outcome, and t he enterprise has fallen far short of what it
could have been if properly gone alxnit. The right plan is clearly the
co-operative one, by w I :ch the capital of tho various investors is com
bined and the proper class of skilled superintendents and helpers is em
ployed. , The plan is the most productive, and instead of being a weary
and worried cultivator himself, the investor is a .bond-bolder cutting oh
his coupons and drawing his regular and handsome dividends.
The latter is the plan of the Ozark Commercial Orchard it Fruit
Company. The shares of the company can be bought on a basis of $10
down and $5 per month.
Each Share Represents an Acre ot Orchard.
To have one or ten of these shares is obviously, however, better
than to have one or ten acres of orchard, for the economy of working
the whole great orchard over a large number of small ones results in much
greater profits to the investor.
An Investment of a small part of your earnings for a short time
) will secure an income for life.
