Bücking Up the Retailer It seems to us that it is a guarantee of quality when a manufacturer p'aces his product in good retail shops of the country and then helps the retailer advertise it to the public In the dally newspapers—the one avenue of reaching every where. ' First of all it means that the manufacturer has perfected then that he is acmething worth while—worth advertising; enterprising in wishing to distribute his merchandise through and. finally, that those the leading dealers In a community; same dc .lers In lending their approval and their reputations to this plan of distribution, believe In the goodness of the arti cle itself. It also means that the public Is thus doubly Insured and may therefore depend upon merchandise advertised jointly by both manufacturer and retailer. Manufacturers who want to help their retail dealers are gradually learning that the dally 'newspaper offers the best avenue. Through the daily newspaper the manufacturer can create a direct demand upon his dealers. No other medium will do this so economically or so effectively. 4 (Copyright. 1911, by J. P. Pallo«.) ^9 GUN LOADED WITH BLANKS NOT DEADLY The question. "Is a revolver loaded with blank cartridges a. deadly weapon," proved a puzzle in City Court today, and while Judge Church man and Assistant City Solicitor Lynn thought such weapon loaded with' blanks was not a deadly weapon, a charge of carrying concealed a dead ly weapon against Frank Fisher was dismissed. Fisher was then fined $25 and costs on the charge of firing a revolver In the city limits. In im posing the fine, Judge Churchman ex pressed the belief that the fine should be smaller. The present ordinance imposes a fine of $25 to $100 on con viction. While the question was being argued by the Court today a tire on an automobile outside the Court room blew' out. and the report startled many persona in the court room, they thinking the revolver in question was being demonstrated, Fisher pleaded guilty to the charge, [and said he bought the weapon for the (Fourth of July celebration a year ago. Police Sergeant Kelleher, who arrest |ed Fisher, said he heard a pistol jshot in Market street, near Fourth a * i raet - early this morning, and found Fisher with the gun in his pocket. It w as loaded with blank cartridges.

Effective Sept. 1 SALARY IS TOO SMALL TO SUPPORT FAMILY A. R. Spaid, superintendent of the free public schools in rural New Cas Us county, yesterday afternoon nott tied Governor Charles R. Miller of his resignation from that office. Mr. Spaid gave as a reason for his retirement, which he desires to take place on Septemberl, -or possibly at an earlier date, that the present salary paid by the State to the county superintendent of schools is too small for the support of his family. Mr, Spaid receives $1200 a year salary and is allowed a contingent fun of about $300 a year for traveling ox penses.

In the last Legislature a bill was introduced to increase the salary of the county superintendent of schools In New Castle county from $1200 to $1800 a year, but the hill was not pcssed. This was a disappointment to Mr. Spaid. When the office of State Commis sioner of Education was created by the Legislature, carrying with it a salary of $2,000 a year, Mr. Spaid was an applicant for appointment, to the position. He was strongly recom mended for the place, but Governor Miller selected Professor Charles A. Wagner, of the State Normal School at West Chester. Pa., to be Commis sioner of Educatlon. Mr. Spaid attended the meeting of fh State Board of Education, which Governor Miller and Commissioner Wagner also attended, yesterday. Fol lowing the meeting in the. afternoon.
