What newspaper publisher does not know
of the advestiaiug ajjeut? Each lart;e city of
the Union has a firm whose business is it to
gather up advertisements from men who are
exteusive patrons of the press and dole them
out piecemeal to the small country papers.
Once in the clutches of an advertising assent
and a publisher's peace of mind is no longer
at his immediate disposal.
THE AGKNl's CONTRACT.
Fearfully and wonderfully made is the
agent's contract. We never yet saw one that
we could understand and never expect to.
They are framed so as ta mean anything or
nothing. We have several on our' table now
aud would print some but for the fact that
we have foresworn the puzzle business
for ever. Through these agencies we
become acquainted with Heiubuldt and
his Duchu, Hwstetter aud his bit
ters, Dr. Ward and sozodout, Steinway and
his pianos, Vick and his fl ral guides, Singer
aud his sewing machines of endltss stitches,
liver pads, magnetic belts, anti-bilious pills
and severalcuresforcancers of years' standing.
The prime idea of an agency is to get as many
columns of space as possible for the least pos
sible expenditure of cash on the part of the
advertiser. The infallible "contract" fitinres
largely in these transactions. The contract
is a cast-iron, leather-bound, brass rivited-affair
by which the publisher sells his space,
principles, body and soul to the agency, with
a first mortgage on his wife and children to
clinch the bargain. He signs a solemn pledge
to notice the "ad." each day for a year, sick
or well, to put it jam up against reading mat
ter at the top of the first column and with
nine different kinds of display type. A fail
ure t perform any one of these utterly im
possible conditions vitiates the contract and
the publisher don't get a cent.
A CRITICAL TIME.
As the time draws near to collect the country
editor begins to show symptoms of uneasiness
which gradually drifts into a condition of
despair. He looks forward with fear and
trembling to the day of judgment. He sends
oh his bill and duplicate contract and a hum
ble letter begging for money and mercy on
half a dozdn contracts. In a few months the
answers coiue in as follows :
lour letter of the 17th at hand. Please
state more explicitly what you want and send
duplicate contract No. 17. I have to inform
you that the liazuo of the 14th of November
has never reached us. We cannot demand the
bill from the firm of Power & C until the tiles
are complete Bedkock & Co.
Thenuiuberof thel4thof November ishunt
ed up with the assistance of the entire office
force and it is discovered that on accouut of
a cloud burst having demolished the office on
that day no paper was published. It is use
less t explain, and the bill goes by the beard.
The Soda Bitters bill in the next hope.
The following explains the situation:
Sorry to say that the ''Soda Bitters" men
have gone into insolvency, and we were un
able to collect.
The publisher has a dim idea that he con
tracted with White, Brown & Cu. for the ad
vertisemeut, and not with the Bitters fellow,
but rather than go to law aheut a trifle ot $50,
grasps at the next Eastern advertiser and gets
the following reply :
The firm of Bilk A Graball decline to settle.
Their "ad." was not next to reading matter
on the 23d of March, as per contract. This
firm is very particular about their "ads." If
you want some No. 1 ink we can forward it
at eight cents per pound cash in advance
Please write and let us know about the ink
immediately as it will be quite a saving to you
te secure the article before the price goes Hp
to ten cents. Enclosed is a column ad from
Dr. Price, can you run it one year next to
reading matter and top of column for $18 net.
Cinch fe Co.
P. S. Your rates on the sewing machine and
cabinet organs ad are outrageously high. We
don't want to buy your newspaper office out-
If you coaie down to anything like
variably decliu e to do se if the firm which or
ders the advertising refuses to piy. They as
sume the right to repudiate their contracts at
pleasure on the grounds that the bills are riot
collectable. How is a Nevada newspaper to
know whelhur or not a New York or Chicago
agency has collected these bills?
There are scores of bous agencies in the
East. Their aim is to get all the advertising
possible inserted in newspapers at any price.
The? collect for the same and never pay the
papers a dollar. Recently the Appeal receiv
ed a small ad frrn a new firm of agents for
which they agreed to pay $5 for one year s in
sertion at the end of the year. The Appeal
replied: Will insert ad for 10 cash in ad
vance. That was the last neara oi it. j ne
Appeal is now iu correspondence with the
Chief of Police in some tf the Eastern cities
and proposes to unearth some of these fraudu
lent agencies. It is high time the press looked
after this matter and separated the chaff from

Yesterday mr,nng she gave up the keys of
the house au ; ieft the premises. Shortly
afterward the landlady took occasion to in
spect the place, and found that most of the
crockery, tableware, cooking utensils and bed
ding had disappeared. She procured a search
warrant, and with officer Stern examined the
premises of another house on the same street
into which the woman had just moved. Her
search was rewarded by the finding of a col
ander, Btme bread pans, forks, blankets, tc,
which she identified as hers. The cullender
had E. B. Rail's trade mark on it, and a clerk
in Rail's store swore to having sold it to Miss
Forrest a few days before. The fork also had
a mark upon it.
The defendant interrupted the testimony
with tears, wringing ml her hands and other
theatrical exhibitions ot Uallic innocence
which are supposed to have weight with the
courts. W hen she took the stand she was
assisted in her testimony by two French wo
men and an interpreter. All four talked at
once, and the Court made a strong effort to
appear as if he understood every word. Th
fact, however, that he preserved the same
appearance of wrapped attention when they
alluded to him as a " bald-headed old lutu
mix '' aud " bean-eating Gasson," was taken
by the audience as an evidence that his French
education had beeu neglected. Miss Gabrial,
after blowing her trumpet for about half an
hour, was found guilty by the Court, who
carefully strained the evidence through the
cullender, and fined the defendant tf 10, with
the alternative of five days in jail. At last
accounts she was endeavoring to raise th

of the dry goods store of M. Cohn is not

counties. His Spring stock, purchased in

brought to Nevada's Capital. It embraces
Hverything riire and beautiful in the way of
Spring and Summer fabrics, and in the lan

convinced that we are stating facts.
