Stakes placed at intervals along Chelan avenue indicate that very
soon the street is to be graded. Some day a history of Wenatchee will
be written and if some camera enthusiasts would take a few views of
particularly unsightly spots so that their appearance before and after
the improvements are made may be preserved, their efforts would be
highly appreciated in later years. The interest taken in street im
provement this year by the residents of various sections of the town
indicates that before many months a great improvement in the ap
pearance of the streets will be made. Little knolls will be removed
and a continuous view for longer distances will be made possible.
Since Chelan avenue is in proximity to the park, the improvement of
this street is especially desirable. If several unsightly spots at the
intersection of Okanogan avenue and Methow could be removed and
the triangular area parked, this would be a very desirable improve
ment, Particularly is this so inasmuch as it is close to the park and
as several streets intersect at this point a clear and unobstructed view
in all directions could be obtained. There is no place in the city where
a small expenditure of money would show srreater results in giving
the city a neat and attractive appearance than this particular place.
In another column of today's News is printed the finding by Justice
Guy of New York regarding the editorial duties of newspapers. His
.honor's opinion of the business methods of newspapers would be quite
as interesting and perhaps of great value to persons who do not know,
or who knowing, will not, on account of bias or hate, admit that the
modern newspaper's business office is among the cleanliest commercial
institutions in mercantile life?
To many persons it will be news to say that the business and editorial
offices of newspapers are far apart and while there always must be a
certain co-operation bel ft'een them, they are ruled by men of different
minds and quite often of different aims as well. The business office,
by the sale of advertising and papers, creates the sole revenue of a
newspaper, and the systems and methods have been reduced to a sci
ence as exact as that pervailing in any mercantile institution.
In practically all of the newspaper offices of the country there pre
vails honesty and fair dealing. The business manager or advertising
solicitor of years ago, who misrepresented circulation and got all he
could by hook or by crook, is found now in only a few places—and
certainly never on up to date and successful papers.
Now and then the profession is disgraced by the blackmailer—the
scurviest being alive—who preys upon merchants too cowardly to ex
pose him It is upon cowardice that blackmailers thrive; the brave,
sincere and honest man never gives a penny. He "calls the bluff," and
thai almost invariably is the last of the blackmailer. An editor, so
licitor or other agent of a newspaper who goes to a merchant or any
body else with a threat of "writing him up" if he does not take adver
tising space or pay a price, should be imprisoned, as the law intends,
and it would not be a bad idea if the statute also provided for 40
lashes, with salt and pepper rubbed in by his victim.—Tacoma Daily

In polishing silver that has been

[Lord Northt-liffe Tells of 111-Advised
Enterprises in England.
You ask me why a number nf
American advertisers who have been
successful in their own country have
I not met with a corresponding degree!
jof good fortune in England.
Many of your business people who
I wish to establish themselves in Eng
land do not sufficiently survey the;
j field, and. as a rule, not not send

I remember one concern spending
la great sum of money in advertising
I the fact that they were about to in
jtroduee American "shoes" to Eng
land. No one could understand what
they were after. A "shoe" with us
; means a low shoe; with you it means,
[i believe, what,we call a boot. This
lis only one of many mistakes that I
have seen made.
i A common complain' made by the

Evey country has its prejudices,
its natural likes and dislikes, for
many of which it is difficult to as

Some years ago a man came to
me with a letter of introduction, ask
ing for advice as to whether he j
should open some "shoe shining sa- j
loons." He had been through Lon- >
don once on his way to Paris and
had noticed that there were no "shoe
parlors," as he called there. Here;
was a city, he said, with a population
taken on a Chicago or Philadelphia
basis, of ten or twelve millions where
there must be a magnificent oppor
tunity for such an enterprise. I point
ed out to him that in England that
kind of thing was done at home, and
that if a person should appear on
the streets with unbrushed boots he
would be regarded as far from res
pectable. However, my advice was
disregarded. I understand that the |
shoe saloon was opened, and the pro
prietor gathered in about 20 custo
mers a week.
Lots of Room Needed
It is a curious fact that the invari

Recently a sailor from the fleet of
British war ships that accompanied
the Prince of Wales to Quebec ap

want?" continued tbe liveryman.

Do you realize that an in
competent man turned loose in
your orchard with something
with which to cut off limbs
will work hundreds of dollars
of damage to your orchard
every day he works, ani may
permanently ruin it, where a
competent man will make you
hundreds of dollars every day
he works? There is a differ
ence between cutting off limbs
and pruning. See J. S. Young,
Money in Poultry
I will be in Wenatchee Monday and
will remain until Saturday, for the
purpose of meeting anyone and every
one who is interested in my plan to
establish a large Poultry Ranch here.
I want to convince you that the
things I have told you about this
Poultry Ranch are so, that the enor
mous profits promised are real and
that the investment is absolutely
safe. I will not be here to sell you
stock, there is none for sale yet.
When it is offered, men you know,
your own citizens, will handle it and
all the money derived from its sale.
I do not want to handle a dollar of
your money, nor will I. Every dol
lar raised by the sale of stock will be
devoted to the building of this poul
try plant—it cannot be used for any
other purpose—there will be no
"rake off" for anyone. It is a fair
and square business proposition that
will bear the closest investigation.
