"" """" SUTTON ZZZZZZ JOB PRINTllsiG OUR SPECIALTY Every dollar spent in advertis ing is not only a seed dollar which produces a profit for1 the merchant, but is actually retained by him even after he has paid it to the publisher. Advertising creates a good will equal to the cost of the publicity. Advertising really costs noth ing. While it uses funds it docs not use them up. It helps the founder of a business to grow rich and then keeps his business alivc after his death. It eliminates the personal equation. It perpetuates confi dence in the store and makes it possible for a merchant to with draw from business without hav ing the profits of the business withdrawn from him. It changes a name to an institution an in stitution which will survive the builder. It is really an insurance policy which costs nothing pays a premium each year instead of calling for one and reriders it possible to change the entirVper sonnel of a business without dis turbing its prosperity. Advertising renders the busi ness stronger than the man in dependent of his presence. It permanentizes systems of mer chadising, the track of which is left for others to follow. A business which is not adver tised must rely upon the person ality of its proprietor, and person ality in business is a decreasing factor. The public does not want to know who owns the store it isn't interested in him but in his goods. When an un advertised business is sold it is only worth as much as its stock of goods and its fixtures. There is no good will to be paid for it does not exist it has not been -created. The name over the door means nothing except to the limited stream of people from the im mediate neighborhood, any of whom could tell- you more about some store ten miles away which has regularly delivered its shop news to their homes. It is shortsighted for a man to build a business which dies with his death or ceases with his inac tion, as it is unfair for him not to Drovide for the continuance of it.' income to his family.

In view of the prevailing im pression that the country is now experiencing a period of business depression and that, especially among the railroads, no additions or betterments are being made or even contemplated for the near future, it is interesting to note that at least one railway system has the courage of its convic tions and has made and is now making expenditures for improve ments running into the millions. The Chesapeake and Ohio Lines while suffering in common with the other carriers of the country from increased operating expenses and decreased net revenues have just completed at Newoprt News, Va., at a cost of a million and a half dollars an all steel coal pier which has no superior in the world. This pier has a capacity of about 5000 tons per hour, is oper ated by electriety throughout, is equipped with electrical dumping devices,. automatic weighing machines, and every device to fa ciliatc the prompt loading of ves sels which the best engineering talent assisted by the advice of railroad men with years of ex perience could suggest. The Chesapeake and Ohio has added to its already large coal carrying equipment two thousand 70-ton coal cars and is just be ginning to receive two thousand 57-ton coal cars additional. ' On its Hocking Valley Line the Company has just completed a dock at Toledo costing a million and on-half dollars which -will more than double the annua loading capacity of thatt port. Coal shipments from the West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky fields, destines to the great Lakes parts can be handled with great dispatch it now being possible to load the largest coal carrying vessels on the Great Lakes in about six and three-quarter hours. The completion of Ah:s new pier makes Toledo the largest coal loading port on Fresh Water, the ahnaual capacity now being about 16,000,000 tons. There is about to-be construct ed a connecting line between the Chesapeake & Ohio at Ports mouth, Ohio, and the Hocking Valley Railway at Columbus, O. The completion of this line will enable a material shortening of the time in transit between the coal fields and the Great Lakes ports and Will insure much better service on such shipments than was ever before possible. The responsible officers of the railway company have a deep and abiding faith in the resources of the States traversed by its lines and it is this confidence in the growth and. development of the country tributary to it which is responsible for the fact that mil lions of dollars have been spent increasing its facilities at a time when not only railroad companies but all large corporations have been retrenching in every possible way. It is confidently believed that th increased volume of bus iness of the approaching fall and winter months will justify the bptimis, of these officials. OUR OPPORTUNITY It is estimated that the trade of South America with European countries amounted to $1,600,000, 000 in 1913. In the fiscal year 1912-13 the trade of South Ameri ca with this country was repre sented by these figures : Imports, $217,747,038; exports, $146,147, 993; total $363,895,031. Europe's aggregate was considerably great er than four times ours. Practically every country that purveys manufactured articles to the South American peoples is now at war. Great Britain, Ger many and France, in the order named, were the principal provid ers. Italian and Spanish com merce, what thorc is of it, docs not mean the things most needed: machinery, textiles, products of highly developed manufacturing skill. Even assuming that Eng land speedily opens the way for her shipp:ng, her share of the South American trade of Europe was a scant one,-third, viz: 6?, 114 imports and 44,387,000 ex ports, or, translated into our money, a total of" about $557,705, 000. New York Sun. Sooner or later, Europe is go ing to take our wheat, corn, food stuffs and cotton. Until the con trol of the seas has been definitely awarded by the court of battle or it becomes clearer that what ap pears to be the German naval pol icy of forcing the bulk of the British navy to remain on guard in the North Sea is the policy de termined on, the shipment of foodstuffs to Europe will be at tended by the danger which at taches to conditional contraband and to the possibility that the United States may become involv ed in hostilities by the unwar ranted seizure of some of its ships. The problem of insurance against, the risk in such service of supply is still to be worked out. For tunately in the case both of foodT stuffs and cotton, the financial loss is but temporary. When the final price is paid it will be with added interest. The United States, however, has free passageway to South America. The figures quoted by the Sun show something of the value of the trade to which the United States is now sole heir. Such questions as bona fide sales and contraband of war, that might intrude themselves were our soon-tb-be-acquired mer chantmen of foreign make to voy age between American and Euro pean ports, will not arise as long as their journeyings are confined to the waters of the two Ameri cas, both at peace with the world. Vessels of thirty-foot draught will find passageway through the Panama Canal. The way is open. The opportunity and the means with which to meet it arc ours. Louisville Times.

E-72 THE CONSERVATION OF TIMBER The Federal Government for seven years past has been setting aside forest reserves in pursuance of a policy of conservation. In some- quarters there has been complaint that too much of the public domain was being put un der lock and key. But the Government is making intelligent use of its forest possessions. The fact that a tract of land is set aside as a forest re serve does not mean that it is withdrawn altogether from use. The Department of the Interior recently announced that 15,000 permits for special uses of the Federal forest lands have been granted and are now in forco. Such permits are issued only to persons who are responsible and on terms that are considered fair all around. They are limited also to industries which will not con flict with Government plans for the conservation of natural re sources. Some of the lessees of the land are conducting apiaries. Others are operating wild animal ranches. A number of leases have been taken on marsh lands for the production of cranberries, while other lands are used for ot' er and various purposes. In addition to giving private enterprises a chance in this way, the Government also sells t'mber from time to time from the forest reserves. Conservation does not mean that good timber should be allowed to go to waste and scientific forestry calls for the marketing of timber when it is "ripe" for the axe. In the mean time the younger trees are pro tected and new ones planted, if necessary, in order that the sup ply may be continuous. The Government thus prevents the butchery of timber and the de forestation of enormous tracts of lands by lumber corporations which are ruthless in their oper ations. The conservation of natural re sources does not imply the cessa tion of development. It contem plates rational use of timber and other natural wealth with just re gard for the needs of the future. This is not agreeable to some of the special interests, but it is obviously the best policy for the. public good.
