THE TIMES. Q TheHBGandWIof ADVERTISING A SERIES OF TEN TALKS ON wrhua by Seyaosr Eaton The man vrho succeeds must fill his job so full that he bulges out a little at the top; where people can see him. The successful store must do the same thing, only in a different way. The goods must be on hand ; the prices must be right ; the service must be commendable ; the trading must be square; the kind of square that has four equal sides and four right angles. Every successful store has its trademark whether the merchant knows it or not. Its advertising and its service have created a public sentiment in its favor which neither reverses nor fire nor time can obliter ate. Nine times out of ten this trademark is the store's biggest asset. Much of the ordinary store advertising is a hand-to-mouth sort of business ; an effort to make tomor row's sales equal to today's or yesterday's ; and this is just as true of the department store as of the small er shop. The advertisement appears in the morning and the merchant figures out the net results in the evening. It is true that the bargain advertisement of today is of little, if any, use next week. It is for gotten in twenty-four hours; but if the store makes a feature of genuine bargains, then each bargain sale helps to advertise the bargain department. The advertising ought to be done in such a way as to permanently advertise the department as well as to emphasize the bargains of the day. Don't go at it as if you were advertising an auction sale. As I said at the outset, your store is the seed in the soil; the advertising is the rain and the sunshine. Inexperienced advertisers dig up the seed every evening to see if it is growing ; or pull up the young plant by the roots because it didn't bear fruit or flowers the first week. It is safe to say that not more than one-third of the people are looking for bargains; the otheAtwo thirds are looking for quality and style. The very fact that the goods are offered at bargain prices leaves the impression that there is something wrong with the quality or that the style is a season behind. Good advertising should enable a merchant to sell $20 coats at $25 instead of $25 coats at $12.50; in other words, it should create confidence rather than doubt. As in stocks and bonds, the securities quoted above par are always more desirable in the thought of the investing public than are those quoted at a discount. Advertising is a tremendous force which in action contradicts all mechanical laws. The circumference and speed and working power increase, while the motor remains the same. Make your advertising continuous. This is the first great secret of success. Copy and medium and circulation are all subordinate to keeping everfastingly (Copyrfsfct. 1006, by Trfbun f Higher Courts' Record. Supreme Court Mlnotra. ? 21266.

IS THE AUTHOR OF "MARNIE' In article cf This Week She Tells About Trip to Hammond, Weav ing Facts and Fancies. Marion Heath Freeman, formerly of The Times, and now doing Bpecial newspaper work on the Chicago Daily Freeman intimately while she did some very interesting stories in a copy righted column headed "The Trail of the Trolley." Those who knew Mrs Freman intimately while she did some of her work on The Times easily rec ognize her hand in "The Trail of the Trolley." Mrs. Freeman has a style that is distinctly her own which gives her an individuality. It is not necesarily feminine. On the contrary It would be surprising to many of The Times readers to know that some of the strongest and most virile articles that have appeared In these columns were written by Mrs. Freeman, Author of "Mantle." Many of The Times readers still re- member her serial fiction story which appeared in The Times under the of " Marnic." She has written considerably for the magazines and rer feature work on the News is not new to her. She makes a daily trip over one of the street cir lines running into Chicago, and in a very limited space, nevertheless does justice to the trip. In the beginning of this week she had an article about the trip to Ham mond which is subjoined. The reader will readily see that she has combined the ability of a reporter and artist in weaving cold facts and fancy pictures into her story. That she has a warm spot, for Hamond can be seen from her articles. It is as follows: The trip from Chicago to Hammond has many features to recommend it. In the first place it is inexpensive. In the second place it is one of those journeys which may be taken f.r a considerable distance over a different route, going and coming, without Its costing any extra money of added in convenience. The name of Hammond to the av erage Chicagoan, who knew it when It fust began to ocupy the public eye, but who has failed to keep abreast of its progress, suggests slaughtering houses and- cattle pens and a bad odor. The cattle pens are still there, or near there, for Calumet park, a short dis tance away, is a great point for the transfer of catle on their way to the Chicago stockyards. But the packing and slaughtering industry have long since ben removed and other industries have sprung up in their stead. Some of City's Industries, Hamond has a distillery which bears the name of the city of its location, and it has its Standard steel car plant, a $5,000,000 concern, branch of the east ern company whose name it bears: It has its Simplex Railway Appliance company and any number of smaller industries of interest to inspect. On the way thither are to be sen the tall chimneys of the South Chicago steel mills, for South Chicago is traversed in order to reach Hammond from Chicago. There are also some interesting od dities to see along the way including the replica of Mount Vernon, the home of Washington, which was a world's fair exhibit and is now a dwelling. At Robey loom the buildings of the Western Glucose works, which, set as they are in the midst of the barren prairie, possess their own picturesque ness. Hammond Is literally honey combed with railroad tracks, almost all of the eastern trunk lines pasing through its borders. But the trip and its destination are not all factories and smoke and iron. There is a softer side. There Is the beauty of nature which has its own peculiar charm in the flat wilderness between points where the hand of man has set the seal of his dominion. The land is low and swampy, and the soil unproductive of grains and many of those products which require cultiva tion. But of evenings the trilling of the frogs, punctuated by the dull boom ing of the bullfrog variety, adds a peaceful sweetness that soothes the ear, and the fringe of reeds and cattails about the shores of Wolf lake and Lake Calumet, between whose shallow wa ters the cars ply for some distance, soften the scene and give It a mel ancholy beauty. And down the sleepy river, or up the river the Calumet has no source nor outlet, or. rather, its source and outlet are the same the view is one of continuous beauty, with launches plying up and down its slug gish waters: for Hammond has a thriv ing boat club. Womlerfnl Flowers to See. But if the soil is poor from the standpoint of the agriculturist. It is rich in those qualities which nourish wild things. The country surrounding Hammond is famed to botanists. Scores of varieties of wild flowers flourish there In their peculiar seasons and local students of the flora of the vicin ity claim a great distinction for a lo cality which is a part of It. They say that at a certain point in the Calumet river grow and thrive the famed locust lilies of the Nile. They will tell th . inquiring stranger that these flowers blom in only three places In the world, ' the River Nile in Egypt, the Calumet river near Hammond and in another spot of limited dimensions in some Wisconsin stream. The return trl may be made via Fast Chicago and Whiting. If desired, the South Chicago Street Car company providing transfers betwen their two main divisions and a local branch ply- St ocks9 Latest Event in the Markets PROVISIONS HEW YORK STOCK MARKET Close Atchison ... 8S4 89H 88 89 136 1 81 67 43 94 55 43 36 172 23 139 V, 139 111 32 5S 7 109 145 43 9 126 128 24 80 18 36 97 146 158 47 110 Am Sugar. .135 137 134 Am Car 4114 41 41 Am Copper.. 80& 81 79 Am Smelt.. 99 99 96 Am Locom.. 57 67ii 57 Anaconda .. 48 48 47 " 9V 95 94 .rookaT-- 55 56 64 Ches&O.... 42 43 42 C & I .... 35 36 35 Canad Pac.172 172 172 Erie com 23 24 23 Jf,rt North.. 138 139 138 III.

Special Wire to The TIMES HEAUD ON THE E0UESE. Clement-Curtis The active demand for wheat for export shows that the foreigner regards present prices as basic for wheat. Bartlett From what we can hear we judge that export bids are close to the market and there has evidently been some business done via the Gulf. There is little question of ultimately higher prices for wheat. Ware & Leland We are looking for bullish news from the Canadian north west and still believe that buying is in order. Logan Believe the injury done to the spring wheat crop will desult in higher prices than yet made during the recent bull campaign. Barrel! We can see nothing in the situation to warrant anything more than a good trading market for the present: Therefore strongly advise ac cepting quick profits in wheat when offered. White Wheat acts very strong to us and be believe it will sell higher. Pringle Wheat looks just now as though declines around these prices would be temporary and advantage should be taken of recessions to make purchases. LIVE STOCK MARKET. Lnion Stock Yards, Aug. 12.

Prisoner' Acquittal Not Astonishing Under the Circumstances. " "The Allen," said a New York poli tician, "took a cynical view of man kind. For one thing, he did not be lieve in trial by jury. Humanity, he would say, was too corrupt to admit of your getting 12 good men and true in a Jury box together. Then he would tell his ham story. "A chap, the story ran, was indicted for stealing a multitude of hams some 600 or 700. "The trial came. The evidence against the chap was overwhelming. His lawyer leaned to him and whis pered: " 'You are a gone goose. There is nothing for me to do.' "But the prisoner smiled and re plied: "'Just you get up there, please, and make a speech abusing all the wit nesses. Considering the size of your fee, you lose heart pretty quickly.' "So the lawyer made a most abusive speech. But the judge summed up powerfully against the ham Btealer. After an absence of five minutes, how ever, the jury brought in a verdict of 'not guilty. "'Well, I can't understand it,' said the prisoner's lawyer, as he left the court arm in arm with his client. " 'I can, said the other, with his calm smile. 'Every man on the Jury had one of the hams. " Friends in Need. What need we have any friends. If we should ne'er have need of them? They were the most needless creatures living, should we ne'er have use for them, and would most resemble sweet Instruments hung up In cases that keep their sounds to themselves. Shakespeare.
