"It pays to advertise." This trado slogan has not degenerated
Into an empty platitude. On the other hand, its inspiration was re
cently demonstrated In Milwaukee at the convention of the Asso
ciated Advertising Clubs, of the. World when a delegate pointed out
that the 1920 records showed an advertising expenditure for tho na
tion of 11,284,000,000 which resulted In $90,000,000,000 in sales less
than two per cent motive power Jo produce the gigantic total. And,
it was shown, $60,000,000 was spent for newspaper advertising.
Another delegate very saplently observed: "Our theory and prac
tice in merchandising and advertising are based on the principle that
a merchant has a large and very definite rsponslblllty to his commun
ity. We feel that the patonage of the public implies an obligation of
service." Still another said: "Banks have not taken full advantage
of the Investment Impulse generated during the war, and the bond
buying habit has been permitted to direct itself to an astonishing
degree toward the 'blue sky" offerings rather than Investments avail
able through banks."
It Is significant, In the first place, that out of a total expenditure
of a little more than a billion dollars, six hundred millions were in
vested In newspaper space. This fact shows that' the advertiser la
thoroughly cognizant of press contact with the public. It has taken
years of bitter experience to bring about this realization to some
great concerns which have poured out money like water on advertis
ing "projects which, in the end, proved practically worthless. Hap
hazard schemes have had their day, and every man entrusted with
tho responsibility of Investing a huge sum of money yearly In pub
licity knows It well. In hto process of elimination by which adver
tising mediums have been gradually standardized, the newspaper
has at last been awarded Its proper status, the verdict being based
Wholly and Impartially on results.
In the matter of bank advertising, It Is certain that there was
never a time In the world's history when financial Institutions labor
ed so zealously and Intelligently through the press to inspire In the
public mind a sense fit safety and thrift. Some of the best advertis
ing now being printed, from the standpoint of "copy," comes from the
publicity departments of the country's big financial Institutions. And,
as to the question of the patronage of the public Implying an obliga
tion of service, this is so patent that even the business tyro under
stands It and uses tho sentiment In his advertisements. On the
whole, advertising at the present time is on a moro intelligent and
artistic basis than ever before, and the people who spend their
money for spaco have come to realize that tho newspaper Is the
medium which bring tho best results. '
Tuesday the town of Frenchburg
was thrown Into a state of consterna
tion when Bob Ballard entered an
autompblle and proceeded to race
around the public square. Circuit
court was In session and when Judge
Henry R. Prewltt was Informed of
Ballard's conduct he ordered the
sheriff to arrest him and bring him
before him. Ballard 'was indignant
and began cursing when the Judge
ordered him to Jail under a fine of
$25. This increased the prisoner's

additional fine of $50 and 48 hours tn
Jail. Wednesday the prisoner had

and required to give a peaco bond of
$3,000 Tor a period of one year and,
falling to give bond, was returned
to Jail.
The Jail prisoners were placed un

Is an evening gown the garb of
Without hesitation most of us
would say that it is not, but the stern
parent In "Why Girls Leave Home,"
which will be shown at the Tabb on
Tuesday night, is firm in the belief
that It Is a sham and Ingenious mode
of revealing tho backs of women. In
direct contrast to this assertion An
na Q. NUlson, who Is tho featured
player In tho screen play, contends
that there Is nothing suggestive
about the evening gown, and that
furthermore it serves to make wo
men more attractive In the eyes of
their admirers.
"Practically all of a woman's life
Is centered on being attractive to
either her husband or intimate
friends," said Miss Nlllson, smiling
demurely. "Surely, If we take away
the right of a woman to look her
best, we rob her of the only poses
slon with which to Jiold her man.
But evening gowns aro not to be de
spised. In the picture my father
sternly objects to my wearing tho
gown simply because he is an old
fashioned, narrow-minded person
whoso foresight has never gone be
yond the four walls of his home."
In the picture with Miss NUlson
are many screen stars popular with
Mt Sterling "fans."
Although 48 states havo dog laws

them are so poorly planned or so
poorly enforced that dogs still do
much damage to flocks, especially
In the farming states where flocks
aro small and dogs are plentiful.

those laws, says the nlted States De

that Is enforced with energy may
produce bettor results in sheep con
servation than a much better law
that Is half-heartedly enforced. Dogs
koep many men from going into the
sheep business, which is probably a
greater setback to tho Industry than
the actual damage done by them.
