"JONES, HE PAYS THE FREIGHT."
The New-Orleans machine raiaes its hands in holy horror at the charge
that the city's growth has been held back because of ring politics, Mayor
Behrman pictures the wonderful advancement of the city (and we say this
advisedly, because his picture never fails to be in it) and goes on to s.y
that " ' * those responstble for b(ringing these things about are the
splendid men of New Orleans, not the campaign orators of John M. Park
er." He forgot to say that John 'M. Parker himself is a massive pillar of
the superstructure. He forgot to say that in spite of machine control
business intelligence, noted hospitality, social eclat and natural advant
ages have forced the city's growth. But O, what a different growth might
have been without machine control!
The best paid mayor in America undoubtedly values his Job and is en
ergetic in the interest of New Orleans on the cost plus 10 per cent prin
ciple; but holding a job of that kind indefinitely requires the building of
,a machine that can deliver the vote. -That he has ably attended to this is
Sshown by the undisputed statement that a short order service of twenty
d.ve thousand votes is steaming hot and ready to be served on notice. It
was that that cansed en-Governor Sanders, in his cutting speech in New
Orleans last Saturday, to exclaim: "Is Behrman 25,000 times the man
you are?" IS ANY ONE FOOLISH ENOUGH TO BELIEVE A MACHINE
OF THIS KIND CAN BE KEPT UP WITHOUT ENORiMOUS COST TO
THE CITY? Can any part of the city government function at its best
when every action must be gauged by its political effect on the machine.
Parker is not trying to discredit the city, HE IS TRYING TO BANVE IT
FROM THE MAOHINE. None but the weak-minded can fail to see this,
And he is trying to keep the state from being engulfed also. Is casting
25,000 solid votes by Bohrman giving the country a chance to select its
own governor?
The building of a machine throughout the state is much more difficult
than building a machine in the city, because the Jdbe wont go around in
the-small towns and the farmer has never been fond of rings. He has to
pay the cost without getting any of the fat. But if the constitutional con
vention is controlled by the New Orleans -organization the new Constic',
tion will be an encyclopedia of ring domination.
Advertising is the biggest asset of the business man, and a private trade
mark ts exclusive. The mayor of New Orleans has given it an exclusive

Yes, New Orleans has been well advertised, and its mayor has shared in
that advertising with the persistency of a permanent fxture. To mention
New Orleans or any undertaking in New Orleans without affixing the.
photograph of the mayor would seem to be a dereliction as great as leav.
ing the seal of state from an official state document. It remi'ds one of
the old scales advertisement, "Jones, he pays the freight." It matters
not whether it 'be paper, magazine or Saturday Evening Post with its

"Jones,'he pays the freight."
I PALE CHILDREN NEED GUDE'S
PEPTO-MANGAN.
Unnatural for Children to be Palo
and Thin-Paleness Is Sign
of Thin, Watery Blood.
Pepto-Mangan Makes-Red Blood.
Prepared in Idquid and Tablet Form
-Both Possess Identical
Medicinal Qualities.
It is necessary for boys and girls
to laugh, romp, play and enjoy them
selves, for it is at that stage of life
that the foundation is laid for future
health.
Prompt attention should be given
to the child who seldom laughs,
whose physical condition prevents
playing like the other children,
whose appetite is poor, and who tire3
easily.
If the lassitude is due to poor
blood, which is often the case, a
simple, safe, and pleasant remedy is
within- easy reach. Gudo's Pepto
Mangan is just the tonic for pale,
thin children. Gude's Pepto-Man
gan contains the very ingredients
that increase and enrich the blood,
enabling it to supply the entire body
with the sorely needed vigor,
strength and vitality that make hap
py, romping children.
For the convenience cf the public
Pepto-Mangan is prepared in tablet
as well as liquid form. Both forms
possess exactly the same medicinal
properties.
When you ask the druggist fo:
Pepto-Mangan, look for the name
"Gude's" on the package. If it is
not there it is not Pepto-Mangan.

But we can't continue increasing our
production unless we continue increasing
our railroad facilities.
The farms, mines and factories cannot
increase their output beyond the capacity
of the railroads to haul their products.
Railroads are now near the peak of their
carrying capacity.
Without railroad expansion-more en.
gines, more cars, more tracks, more ter
minals-there can be little increase in
production.
But this country of ours is going to
keep right on growing-and the railroads
must grow with it
To command in the investment markets
the flow of new capital to expand railroad
facilities--and so increase production -
there must be public' confidence in the
future earning power of railroads.
The nation's business can grow only as
fast as the railroads grow.
