was obtained through a most
contemptible conspiracy, nnd
through underhanded tricks. The
revolt of January 1893 was not the
outcome of a spontaneous out
burst of tho popular will. It was
the most contemptible act on
record in history. The hired
brigand John L. Stevens used
his brief authority to further this
scheme. Tho country which he
represented disavowed his actions
and thought that tho houor of
tho United States was saved by
dismissing him, and in six lines

Tho world thinks differently,
and there are no reasons to be

will allow himself, and his ad
ministration to be covered with
infamy by leaving an admitted
wrong unrepaired.
In this, tho Jin de sieclc, the
bloody ravage of war and
revolution is out of fashion and
arbitration has taken the place of

There can be difficulty in secur

that the voice of the nation
should be heard, disowning and
denouncing the violent savagery
of negro lynching; and that its

The Advertiser who catches
a persons eye usually wins a
customer. Many different stylos
of advertising have been adopted
and with more or less success, by
the believers in tho uso of prin
ters ink. The manufacturers of
Pears Soap, for instance, occasion
ally buy paintings that have
been on exhibition m tho Pari s
Salon and have lithographs mado
from them for the purpose of
bringing their product before
the people. Iu addition to such
side issues, Pear'spends hundreds
thousands of dollars annually
among the newspapers and mag
azines. Some years ago tho Agents
of certain article on sale in Kow
York mado a hit in advertising be
having on Broadway during bus
iness hours two fatluessly dressed
Negroes wearing very high collars,
on tho backs of which was prin
ted "Use Smiths Pills." Tho
idea was novel und tho public
caught on. Rising Sun Stovo
Polish has boon kept before tho
public for 3'ears through persis
tent, and sometimes expensivo
advertising. Twenty odd years
ago tho manufacturers of this
polish started half a dozen men
across the oruiment to paiut signs
on rocks aud fences. Tho Aor
motor Co., of Chicago havo in
creased its sales more than five
hundred per cent in two years by
tho use of printers iuk. Wo
behove, we have boon instrumen
tal in increasing tho sales of tho
Aoraotor by keeping ovorlastingly
at it in Hawaii.
"We do not wish to say that ad

not tho superior article it is, all
our advertising of it would not
have sold tho thousands of pieces
that we have. We simply call
tho attention of tho people to it
and its superior quality is appar
ent to tho customer directly a
piece of it is examined.
Printers ink has helped the salo
of tho James Locked Fence but
it would not have dones so if it had

fence. First; tho economy thore

it to tho plantation manager and
then its durability clinches tho

ers cost as much as an ordinary
redwood post our sales of tho
material would not havo reached
such enormous proportions.
Our avorage sale of tho Pansy
Iron Stove is about two a day the
yoar round. If was not tho
best iron stove on the market wo
would not sell that many in six
months. Advertising is the tip
to the public the good points in
the article sells it just as tho good
qualities of tho Fischer Steel
Bango make it a desirab'io article
for people who wish to economise
in the use of fuel.
Wo buy only what has proven
good after people in tho United
States or Europe havo given it a
trial; we profit by their oxperinco

and sell them; if they aro poor
we steer clear of them. When -we
advertise an article it is to at
tract attention to it; tho news
paper ;s tho button we push, the
salesman does the rest.
Porsisfont advertising coupled
with tho article being a superior
one has sold thousands of the
Frank Walcot Emory File. If it
had been no better than an or
dinary scythe stone we probably
would not have sold twenty.
