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withdrawn from him.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

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

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.
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

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.
