FNOJ'IKFK ON AIIYEKTININU.
There Is no newspaper, perhaps in
the Slate, pursuing ho Independent an
attitude iiH the Vcrkvllle Enquirer.
This newspaper never solicits adver
tising, and always carries a lino lino,
getting good rates fr/ the space used.
Seldom does this newspaper "talk
shop," and whenever it does there Is
generally something In what is said.
The following is from one of those
talks on the advertising business as
seen by Editor t?rlst:
All kinds of business are now un
dergoing a mont serious depression.
Because of this depression most peo
ple are trying to economize in every
possible way, and us a measure of
economy some are curtailing their
ndvertlslng. In some eases they are
undoubtedly right, and personally we
have no complaint. We positively do
not want anybody to advertise Hi The
Enquirer unless they think It will Re
profitable. Out this is a fact: IT this
depression is going to be permanent,
then It is no use for anybody to ad
vertise; but If It Is to bo only tempo
rary, and that, is what most of us hope
and believe, then the best thing for
the business man who expects to par
ticipate In tho better time a-coming ly
lo keep himself prominently and con
tinuously before the public. Otherwise
when the revival comes, he may wake
up to find that others have stepped In
and taken his place, and he bus been
lost in the shuffle.

Black Sea fleet expected to start a
bombardment of th? Bosphorus ports
today In active cooperation with the

One of the most ue-ightful social
events of the season was the party
given by Mrs. W. A. Clement on Mon
day evening for the choir of the First
llapttst church. The house was love
ly with its wealth of beautiful jon
jqulls, cluny lace over yellow and love
I pot plants.
After a short business meeting of
the choir, the guests were all asked
to line up alphabetically and Mrs. J.
T. West was given an old time blue
hack spelling book and asked to con
duct a spelling class. This furnished
a great deal of amusement, but the
spelling bee which followed furnished
even more. Miss Francis Burnes and
Louis Seel were asked to choose sides
and then the real fun began as one
after another had to sit down as the
words grew harder and harder?and
those who have studied the old blue
back spelling book know how hard
some of those words are.
When they had thinned down to
two on each side?Miss Margeret
Clement and Mr. L. A. Werts on Miss
Burns' side and Miss Jessie Lewis
and Mrs. J. T. West on Mr. Scel's
I side?excitement ran high for awhile.
Then Mrs. West and Miss Clement
went down and a dead silence reigned
as Mrs. Lewis and Mr. Werts spelled
away, word after word, with no
thought of missing 'til finally Mr.
Werts dropped out und Mrs. Lewis
was declared ^lie winner. Mr. West,
In behalf of the hostess, presented her
with a pot of beautiful yellow hya
cintiri as the first prize and the spell
ing book was presented to Mr. Blair
Illce, he having had to sit down flrst.
After this a most tempting salad
course, followed by mints, was serv
Miss Margeret Clement, the gifted
daughter of the hostess furnished de

evening, which was a thoroughly
