The Right Thing at the Right Time By Ml BY MARSHALL 8. DCFFM. Stand Up for Your Rights Soma persons bare such a fear of mat in* themselves disliked or of causing others to think that they are not liberal that they will permit themselves to be Imposed upon and really held up by tradespeople, tail drivers and a dozen and one people with whom they come in contact In the course of the day. Yet It is not because of actual lib erality that they consent to being thus robbed. The chances are that In their own busi ness they are as careful to conserve every penny as any one else. There is a sort of meekness that comes frqm lack of self-confidence. Tbe other day a woman who has plenty of ynoney stopped at a drug store to get a •drink of charged water. She was thftety and this was a natural thing to do. Sfce had done this before when thirsty and as she knew that the carbonated waiter that was drawn from the soda water fountain could not cost more than a fraction of a cent for a glass, she was surprised when the soda fountain at tendant told her it would cost 10 cents. "I have never paid but 5 cents.” she said. “Will you make sure that that is your regular charge?” The owner of the drug store overheard her and assured the woman that she was in the right. There was no unpleasant ness.

But it by no means Implies that you will suffer at mystics la that all dreams of wild animals signify the protection and favor of persons of power and dis tinction. The dream, however, would seem to be a warning to be on ypur guard against the enemy typified by the wild boar and some of the oracles say that you must expect much contention and quarreling.

If you want “pep” and life and strength, get on the milk wagon. Get on the outside of a quart of milk each day, and watch the germ of ambition grow. Children drink milk regularly and are always full of energy. They play and romp and do their little household tasks and still have energy to spare. It isn’t milk alone that works the miracle—this is the secret—the children haven’t the chance to spoil their normal, healthy appetites by eating highly seasoned foods. Mother won’t let them. She gives them plenty of milk, bread and other simple foods because she knows that’s the best way to give them a chance to grow. ® Give yourself a chance —milk helps make rich blood and renews wornout tissue.

Not in twenty-five years have the operations of the Bell Company in Indiana returned a dividend to the owners of the property. This company has not been marked by frenzied finance. On the contrary, there is not a drop of so-called water in our capitali zation. Because the company is big, many people think it has made “all sorts of money” and is still making it. The fact is—as the published records show —that dividends have always given way to good plant maintenance, the accumulation of all reserves against depreciation and common sense stability of the business. That’s What Good Service Depends on! At the present time these essential elements are facing serious danger. There are not revenues enough to meet our necessities. And unless adequate rates are forthcoming, and quickly, the outcome is obvious—a service dangerously impaired and a property which because of the uncertainty of returns, will not attract new capital for improvements and ex tensions. n jUI n Indiana Bell Telephone Company Those of You Who Attended the General Session of the A.A.C. of W. Monday Morning Will Not Soon Forget the Straightforward, Sensible, Practical and Human Talk .Made by E. G. WEIR, Adver. Mgr. The Beckwith Cos., Dowagiac, Michigan What Mr. Weir said about reacting the “feeling mind,” which means getting “heart” and "comfort” response to ad vertising rather than making an appeal to the “reasoning mind” applies the situation of the Evening Mail New York City which has increased Its price from 2 cents to 3 cents, starting yesterday. People who read the Mail and have done so regularly, satisfac torily and pleasurably for a great many years are not going to be influenced by the price of the paper. Their “heart" is with the paper; they get “comfort” from reading it; they look upon It as a daily “pal.” Price? Fudge! That does not enter into it at all. The readers say; “We want OUR paper; we like it; it fills the need in our family circle; we trust it; it serves us; it is part of our daily life.” Advertisers, local and general, so long as they are permitted to to buy space on a Just basis, will continue to advertise in it reg ularly and profitably as before. A few thousand more or less circulation will cut no figure at all with them. They believe the Mail always intends to play on the level with them as well as with its readers —and that is enough. t Now, Henry L, Stoddard, edi tor of the Mail and president of the company, sees the necessity of adjusting receipts from cir culation and advertising on a basis that will return him a fair net profit for producing a good newspaper. Mr. Stoddard is absolutely sound in his premises when he takes the position that the in creased cost of producing his paper shall be divided fairly be tween readers and advertisers. I don’t believe the circulation of the Mail three months hence will be any less than what it was last Saturday, for instance, when it printed and sold over 200,000 copies at 2 cents. . lam sure that there are 200,- 000 or more families in New York that will be glad to pay 3 cents a copy for the Evening Mail. Yes, I am Bure, if the ne cessity arises, they will pay 5 cents the copy. (As I dictated the above para graph to the young woman sten ographer in the Claypool Hotel, she said, "I would pay a nickel for the Tribune rather than go without it.”) ✓ I think what this your** lady said expresses the general attt tude of people toward the paper they like; they will have it at any price. The great strength of the Evening Mail is that people do like it very much —and this means that it will always have a good, solid, substantial circu lation which will justify adver tisers in using its columns. And the bully part of it all is that Mr. Stoddard insists on playing square with advertisers, which is a message I want you to carry home with you and think it over. Yours sincerely, William C. Freeman, 125 Riverside Drive, New York City.
