If you send men out on the road to sell your goods and they send in fat orders with delight ful frequency, you think they are fine salesmen. No merchant -will buy stuff that piles up on his shelves. Strenuous efforts may induce liira to place a small trial order, out that will be all. If the pub lic insists on having the goods, the merchant will order only too gladly, and true salesmanship consists in creating a public de mand interesting the consumer and not in urging and arguing and coaxing the dealer. if your eoods are what they ought to be, and you ach-ertise them in the right way, 3'our en tire business machine will move much easier and with far less lubrication. t To advertise rightly means to use the columns of The Ladies' Home Journal and The Saturday Evening Post. The former is the leading woman's apd household publication of the country, and goes into over 1,000,000 homes every month. The latter is a weekly magazine with a circulation of 700,000.

CAUSE LOCAL COMMENT. Uflieved Congress Will lie Urged to Vest More Power in Inter state Commission Chief Executives Confer. The Republic Bureau. 14th St. and Pennsylvania Ae. Washington. Dec 7. President Roose velt's recommendation." on rebates and regulation of freight rates are attracting much attention among members of Con greys. For ten years prior to 1K7 the In terstate Commerce Commission exercised the powers with which Mr. Roosevelt would now clotho It. The Supreme Court then prevented the exercise of such pow ers and left It emasculated. In taking his stand the President has not been more conservative than many of the advocates of freight-rate control would have had him. Governors Cummins. Van Sant and I.a Follette and many of the men prominent In the Interstate Com merce Law Convention recently held at St. Louis would sanction more radical steps, though they wfll be fairly well sat Ilied If the President's recommendations are carried out. The likelihood of the passage of the Cooper-Quarles bill, which Is now pending and which embodies the President's ideas, though Introduced last winter, is remote. The advocatts of It are confident it will at least go through at the long session. Stronc obiection is already being made by the railroad IntereMp and opponents of Government regulation of rates that the bill will make It possible for the commis sion to fix a rate not a living rate, and then. In case a rate is found too low in the courts, the railroad affected will have no chance of recovering the loss sus tained In the interim, while the rate is in controversy. Representative Cooper of Wisconsin, who Is one of the authors of the pending measure, said: "There is a strong feeling that unless the Government docs exercise some con trol over freight rates, the agitation for Government ownership of railroads will assume the most serious proportions. Un doubtedly It 1 the part of wisdom to pro vide for proper control, rather than fur ther arouse the cry for Government own ership by unjust and unchecked discrim inations in rates." Jlr. Cooper said he was hopeful of the passing of the bill at this session, though much would depend on the House and Senate committees. On the other hand Chairman Hepburn of the House Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce Is against the bill and Till! do ail he can to kill it. MESSAGE CAUSES MUCH LOCAL COMMENT. Not only In local railroad circles, but on tho floor of the exchange, was there am ple evidence yesterday that the sections of President Roosevelt's message to Con gress regarding certain railroad reforms are considered of considerable significance. Marked activity In railroad securities with a decided tendency to a slump was the feature of the market. It Is believed that not only will strong pressure be brought upon Congress to re vise the Interstate commerce act. In order that the Interstate Commerce Commission may have the power of establishing and putting into effect a rate, but that laws may be enacted compelling the railroads to Install safety appliances not only on their lines, but on their cars, which will mean the expenditure of vast sums here tofore going to the stockholders. Regarding the President's statement that rebates should be stopped, traffic offi cials express themselves as perfectly will ing to do all in their power to aid In this reform, but all agree In saying that while the prosecution of a company giving re bates is always willingly undertaken if the offense can be proven, the great diffi culty Is to fasten the offense upon the guilty party. In nnswer to the President's statement that better protection should be afforded the public, operating officials say that ir the President or anyone else can devise means by which the safety of passengers and property can be more insured It will be adopted Irrespective of costs, but that practically all of the safety precautions have glaring faults which cannot be cor rected, and in many instances it has been deemed advisable to test certain appliances thoroughly before putting them In at a great cost. Attention Is called to the-fact that this year many accidents have occurred on lines controlled by the block signal sys tem, proving conclusively that It is by no means Infallible. The financial and executive heads of many of the great systems are In New York or Chicago in conference, and it is believed that the chief topic of these con ferences yesterday was the practical cer tainty of Congress ultimately giving more power to the Interstate Commerce Com mission, and passing laws compelling the railroads to make heavy expenditures for safety equipment. At present the Interstate Commission can only say that a rate Is unfair, but has no authority to order it to be changed. But with the power to order the change of a rate and. subject to the concurrence of a court, to enforce the order, the Inter state Commission becomes a body of no mean magnitude. FREIGHT TROIBI.E ADJUSTED. C. & A. and Darlington Send Large Tonnage Over New Line. REPUBLIC SPECIAL. Mexico, Mo., Dec 7. Satisfactory traffic arrangements were made at the recent meeting of the Chicago and Alton and Burlington freight officials, held here, and T0ffi' Cascade IS PURE Because every unwholesome product of gnin fermentation is removed by our metbOaSof puri fication and it is mellowed by age, not blending. fJEORGE A. DICKEL & CO. Distillers NASBvHXX,1ZHR. DAVID NICHOLSON. Distributor. faannY mMmv the freight traffic has been resumed. From ,200 to 300 cars of freight are transferred at Felton yards, a mile east of here, from one road to the other, and an increase is looked for. The new arrangement will ne cessitate the return of a number of freight crews to this point. The trouble between the two roads over the Joint freight business has given rise to the report that the Burlington will con nect Us lines between this city and Macon or "Brookfield; in fact. It is understood that the survey of one or both routes has been ordered at once. Macon is about forty-live miles distant, and Hrookfield about seventy. Many indications are pointed out supporting the supposition that the Bur lington contemplates connecting Its lines, chief among them that the Alton Is sup posed to be under the control of the Rock Island, a bitter rival of the Burlington. BILL OF LADING HEARING CONTINUED TO DECEMBER 15. Inlerstnte Commerce Commission to Aaaenible nt Washington, 1). C. .cxt Thursday. Chicago, Dec. ".The hearing of the question of the railroads placing in opera tion a new "uniform bill of lading" against which thousands of shippers are complaining has been continued until next Thursday. December 13. at Washington, by the members of the Interstate Com merce Commission. The continuation was announced afler three dajs of sensational testimony tilts between counsels for the opposing sides and pertinent remarks by members of the commission. hen the hearing is resumed it is said that the railroad companies against which the investigation has been directed, will introduce rebuttal testimony In an en deavor to prove that there Is no desire on their part to impose the so-called 20-Pcr-cent increase under common law lia bility service of the common carrier. ? e mp''u''nie Commissioners Prouty and FIfer will remain in Chicago and hear testimony in connection with the protest i. the Texas cattle raisers against the rates charged them In shipping live stock. Commissioner Prouty heard testimony in this case to-day. Another development of the hearing to ?hy ,fs. Vlat, ,nc lu"iber dealers within .tne official classification territory intend r?.i-ir.ry tho nehtasainst high rate for freightage much farther than the scope or the investigation now being considered by the commission. This announcement was made by George H. Holt, president of the American Lumber Company, rep resenting thousands of lumbermen who ship throughout the United States. One of the most Important points brought out at to-daj's hearing was that if the 20-per-cent Increase, the carrier as suming the responsibility for damages, was put in force by the railroads, it would Hventually fall back on the consumer to pay the increase, he being called to pay an equal sum for food or material pur chased. This point was brought out by A. A. Sprague of Sprague, Warner & Co., and other witnesses. Commissioner Clements, who acted as chairman of the commission in the ab sence of Chairman Martin A. Knapp, sug gested to the attorneys present for the railroads that they make an effort to have tbn r?i!1riil tin,.. n..tn .tiui . .1 - .wi i-uuiiuiuus trmuiuuie ine en forcement of the 20-per-cent proposition and have the words "not negotiable" left off the bills of lading until some future time to be decided upon. He argued that the hearing may not be closed on December 15. and in this, event the railroads should waive the enforce ment (if lhaca wn ...... .1, f .. . . 7, 1: "" c ' iuyu3iuuiis at least until the hearing Is concluded. The attor neys said that they would endeavor to bring about these conditions. RAILWAY CHIEF EXECUTIVES DISCUSS FEDERAL CONTROL. REITBI.IC SPECIAL. New York, Dec. 7.

The question before theso railroad men was: What will be the effect of the Introduc tion of politics Into the general rate sit uatlonr One of the leading railroad men of the country, who was at the dinner last night, said this afternoon: "The proposition to let the Interstate Commerce Commission fix 'freight rates is preposterous. After two or three years of legislation a railroad might have a rate so fixed upset in court as too low, but It could never get back the money lost while the rate was In effect I do not believe, however, that Congress will turn the rail roads over wholly to a political body."

HAVE SPECTACULAR PARADE. Datto Facundo Only One Without Luggage, Every One of the Other Natives Being His Own Expressman. When the wild Filipino tribes left St. Louis last evening roll call showed that there was one Moro missing. Instead of 152, for which the necessary transportation and accommodations had been arranged by the Philippine Exposi tion Board, there were only 131. Mariani, a 19-year-old Moro boy, did not answer to roll call, and the train left Union Station minus one of the party who came last spring to the World's Fair from Mindanao Isle. Mariani, with two other Moro bojs. es caped from the village last Saturday night, and while his two companions re turned In time to depart with the party, he did not put in his appearance. A diligent search was, instituted for Mariani by the officials of. the Exposition Board, but It availed nothing. "When he gets hungry," said A. I. Lawshe, chairman of the board, jester day, in speaking of the missing boy, "I think he will be glad to return, as his two companions did. He will be kept at the reservation, and when VIsayans re turn home on January 1 Mariani will be sent with them." To prevent any tribal insurrection on their trip to the coast by being compelled to associate with one another in the same car. a special train carried the party, with a separate car for each tribe. The party included thirty-six Samal Mo res, forty Lanao Moros. thirty Bagobos, five Mangvians and forty Negritos. Accompanying the party were Frederic Lewis, Ralph McFle, Ralph Hopping and Valentine Semilla Tuevarra. The ride from tho World's Fair to the Union Station was one of the most spec tacular processions that have ever been seen In St. Louis. Aifhough exrress wagons were put at their disposal, every native insisted on being his own expressman. The women bore huge bundles on their heads, while the little children, who hate received much attention .this summer, fairly wad dled under big bundles containing all sorts of American trinkets and playthings which have been showered upon them while at the World's Fair. Datto Facundo, chief Datto of the Mo ros, was one of the few who absented him self from any luggage. His manner was dignified and his clothes American. He wore a dark suit of coat and trousers and bluo flannel shirt, with white canvas shoes and a, bright red fez wrapped around his head. Two large button photographs of President Roosevelt and President Fran cis, suspended by streamers of red and white ribbon, decorated the front of his coat. Mllo, one of the young men, wore a dis carded khaki suit of some soldier and car ried a policeman's club. He constituted himself special escort for Pedro, one of the trio who escaped from the village with Mariani. Herbert S. Stone, a member of the Phil ippine Exposition Board, and Mr. Lawshe Jr. escorted the party to the station. W. H. THOMPSON IS BETTER. Banker Receives Telegram of Sympathy From the President.
