Third: If you find that tho newspaper did p.iblih 8uch an untruth, hn you mut pro ceed to nvs-s th- ilamifcs none the plaintiff, taking into accouM his chnrRCter. his reputa tion, nnd his buxines. and likewise the wide circulation, the ehircter. influence, reputation, and consequent d-JmaKe-rreatlve power of the newspaper the extent to which Its accusa tion was believed and acted upon by those w horn it reached. Fourth: The damaare done to the plaintiff must he to his reputation, to his feelings, to hi bualn"; the xtent to "ivhlch tho publish ed article caused him to fall in the estimation, n a local citizen, and a public man. of his neighbors, business associates, possible custo mers, and his countrymen. I-Vllow that line of reasoning, and yoti pet quite distinctly what the widit of the Mt. Clemens Jury means: First: The Chicago Tribune did publish an untruth alio.it Mr. Ford; ho is not an anar chist, notwithstanding that lie has expressed vb-ws on public questions not in keepins: with its "general line of policy." Therefore, the Tribune was found guilty of libel, ciil libel, and reprehensible, but as only civil dam- a-: es were asked, the,i; Second: Tho worst that newspaper could do. despite its egotism, its wide circulation, etc., was dam.'u'e to the extent of six rente. Not a very cood reputation for "the world's Kieafest newspaper," either for truth, or for its ability to make tho public believe that it has spoken the truth. Mr. Fond, the "auto king." is so much 'ig"r. and of so much better standing in the com munity, and throughout tho country, than is the Chicago Tribune, that lie about him hard as It might, it could not injure him more than six cents worth. The sale of "flivvers" appears to have pone on quite unmolested by the libel: likewise Mr. Ford's good nam1 and fame. which seem to have stood quite unshaken with the jury, notwithstand ing the seven weeks of Tribune efforts, through clever lawyers, to malign him, discredit him. stig matize him, excoriate him, and arouse in the Jury th" belief that it was justified in what, it had said. I "to to the Tr ibune's "snakeiike" pro-Germanium, pievious to. and in spots during the war and sinn..; its . hrotiic and unscrupulous service of spec ial interests, and relation to certain of them;, its special interest in Mexico, in reard to which Mr. Ford ha.l spoken adversely, ami for which it call ed him tho bad name that caused the trouble: 'its utter disregard" of truth, or the rights of others. when th"y conflict with "its freneral line of policy;" all these tilings seem to have combined to destroy public confidence in tho sheet, and so much so, that a jury set up to deci le its strength. found that it was worth exactly the price, of a coro cola, plus the war lax. Th" trial has so--"l every purpose for which it was brought. The Michigan man has boon ven di.ated. He is not i bom b-1 hro we r, nor a disbe liever in government his own government, even though ho may doubt the propriety of our interfer- nee in some other country's lack of government, as in tho case of Mexico, because of which the term "a i 1 a r c h i s t " was applied to him. It is also proven that the Tribune's slogan, "the world's greatest newspaper" is a fake and a fraud. The people haven't much confidence left in it. It can apply to a m;.u the most opprohrius of epithets, find its damaging power is only six cents. Nothing so vwy "sr-at" about that! What concerns the world today not who is to biamo for starting tho war. but who is to blamw for not ending it? Ceinians leaving (b-rmany have to pay $3. 000 for a passport- It's certainly worth that much to get out of Cermanv. Maybo the reason why people haven't ordered n"Xt winter's coal s that they've been too busy paying for this summer's food.

The unprecedented volume of advertising carried by the newspapers this year a happy cir cumstance m itself has called for heavy drafts upon the inadequate reserve stocks of the mills. The antic' pa ted summer slump in advertising; volume has not materialized on any large scale, so that the manufacturers are not accumulating the usual surplus stocks with which to meet the f?Jl needs of th" publishers. Indeed, during the supposed dull summer month, publishers ha" been forced to look about in the open market for additional tonnage, and frequent lv th" quest has been ir'-fitles?. It was to have been expected, on account of the high prices to bo obtained and the increasing de mand for newsprint, that the paper makers would have beer, prepared pv this time to greatly increase their output. It app irs. however, that production wi.I not no on a much larirer scale than last year --at which time r conditions were assigned as the obstacle. Th" poiiev of lim. ing production In order to maintain high pries, or to force still highe-r ones, i" no 1 oncer considered as pood business in Ameri can industries--to av nothing of its ethical un soundness. The paper manufacturers of the United States and Catui.ii are, for the most part, big busimss men. and pubhshers will not hastily accuse them of such practica The fact remains hat the manufacturers are not leady to meet the normal demand for newsprint, and that th" publishers will find themselves in an awkward situation when the llood of new advertis ing comes t. them in the fall months. The policies of pa,ier economy so successfully adootfd during: the war hould be continued In force The unnecess.arv consumption of newsprint in "circiiht!on wars' should be wholly eliminated. Waste of every kind should be avoided. The closest possible conservation of space for text matter should be made. lately we have had greatly en larged daily issues of ne wspapers, d to the fact that mot publishers try to conform to an estab lished ratio 1 etwoep 'dvertising and reading mat ter. Fp to a certain, number of pages a proper bil r.nc" bt tw. ri text and advertising is essential- Ttut this ba'ar.c" m ed u t be maintained strictly m is su s ca rrir.g unusuu'.le b.eay advertising. Conservation of newsprint must be. a corner stone of a.lministrafiv o policy with ewry newspa per if a serious hortiTe in supply is to be averted. More Truth Than Poetry By James J. Montague THE PROPHECY. Tftpre was a goody-goody boy Who learned hir lessons well. And took a vast amount of joy In knowing how to spell. Wh enever other boys were slow With their arithmetic, Hed raise his hand and say. "I knowl' And tell the answer, quick. So good a child, in short, was, he. His teacher used to say, "Our little. George will surely be The governor some dayl" There was another little boy Who sat up nights to find Ingenious methods to destroy The teacher's peace of mind. He'd scatter powder on the floor, To make the children sneeze. His teacher, whom he should adore, He called a piece of cheese. And she would frown and look severe. And shake her head, and say, "If Th omas won't be good, I fear "He'll go to jail some day.' Now teachers do not always know For there is no sure rule Of telling. where a boy will go When he departs from school. Good boys have perpetrated crimes And fallen to disgrace, Wh ile naughty boys have oftentimes Been foremost in the race. But that is not the ending for This truthful little tale. For George became a governor And Thomas went to jail I (Copyright, 1919).

A ram in the outfit didn't care par ticularly lor George's appearance showing good judgment by the way and hit the genial cigarist sudden ly between the orchard and the wind pump. George picked himself up in the next township about two hours later und after wringing the cider out of his hair and shirt, slipped quietly back to town without saying a word about his mishap to a liv ing soul- The greatest of all living scandal mongers happened to run onto the thing and now releases ;he story for the first time to the trade. Ol'K LITTLi: DAILY XOVKLETTK. "Is 'he mayor of the city in?" queried a colored man who giive the name f George Henry Johnson, as he paused in the door wuy of the DeLeury-Reeder Advertising Co. on the seventh floor of the J. M. S. building the other evening. George waited expectantly in the doorway, his hat in his hand, watching Mr. DeLeury, seated at one desk, and Mr. Reeder, ut another desk. There was a rattle of important papers on the desk, causing George to roll his eyes in wonderment. Then Mr. Reeder whirled about on their unexpected guest and said: "Why. yea, yes. young man the mayor is in, but he is terribly busy. Will it be necessary for you to see him personally? You see I'm his controller and might be able to look after the matter for you." "Ah has to se the mayor in pus son, and ah has to see him imme diately." the colored man replied with emphasis. "Oh, all right then," Mr. Reeder broke :n. "if that's the way you feel about it. Certainly you can fee the meyor. Jut have a good look at him. he-'s facing you." As he said this, he waved his hand in the direction of Mr. De Iury. This gent looked up. took a rhetv of tobacco, and said: "Well, well young man I am glad to see you. What can I do for you this wening"' "Ah wants to have a friend of mine arrested. You all can tind him ! witltf no trouble at Clarence Flliott's. He :Uole a pair of good work shoesJ from me and ah have followed him all over the county without catchln' him." Mr. Del.eury said: "All riaht my friend I will give you a note to the prosecuting attorney, which will cause the arrest of the thief in a jiffy. Just a moment, please, while 1 take up a few mat ters with my city controller." Turning to Mr. Reeder, the "may or" said: "Mr. Swygart I believe you are right in thti plan to open Ltept-r park to Ruchanan, Mich. Tho im provement can be made at very mall expense and will be mighty valuable to the residents of Xavarre pi. I would cail for that -investigation you soke of by the board of public safety, and we must make some further arrangements to pro tect the liquor in the bull pen. I wish there was someway of promot ing Chief Kline. Ile is a wise old head for sure." The "controller" said simply, "Yes ir mayor, I'll take care of all these things." George Henry Johnson, colored, rolled his eyes and began to pre spire almost audibly. He wus listen ing to affairs of state! The "mayor" was speaking again to his "controller." "I don't think we need to pay any attention to Zuvor. He will lay oft of us fume of these days, or die, or something. I would se that that big paving job goes through immediate ly, and we must insist on property owners keeping their walks free of ind and see that the trees are trim med higher all over town. Speeding must be stopped and beer making will uot be tolerated." George Henry Johnson rolled his eyes tonic more. "Now young man. I'll take care of von,'' the "mayor" stated giving his attention to the colored visitor a tain, and ho wrote out a te-rse note demanding that George Henry Johnson be granted immediate ad mission to the office r.f the prosecut ing attorney, and that no store bo left unturned to capture hi.s man. (Jeoi-ge Henry Johnson, colored, armed with the note, shambled has tily to the prosecutor's other, it was evening and eputy " Pros. George Schock was in charge. It was a busy evening also and Mr. Schock didn't get to George Henry's case until an hour and a half after he first en tered the office. 'It's a fine way, you all make me wait hre for hours when ah have a note from the 'mayor of tho city." burst turt Gcoree Henry indignantly 'as ho was ushered into Mr. Schock' office. Mr. Schock read the note and un derstood, which is. about all there is to it, except the moral. GEORGE WYMAN & CO.

We All Want More? I It takes more moral coura1 to .'wear cotton stockings today than it does t cheek your parasol aT the entrance to the hotel dining room and "forget" to te the hat sirl a tip. Hts? I can remember the time when any woman who paid over Jl'O for a hat wa? considered a wild spendt hrif t. And now we run into a little mil- i !:ner'. and she shows us something I very simple and amazingly cheap only Mf' And we rror think of jaskinc her whether she's crazy or if jshe ihinks we ;i re crazy ourselves , or not. ' Shoe? Wh-n I was n cirl one of the sir's in the class paid $? for a pair ol huh broi zh boots for trrad'i lation day. We nevr spok h-r n-irn I in an;. thing hut tones of scandal. zed awe for months after we heard what Ihose shoes coat. Todav that same Rirl weitrhs al most twice what she did then; she has a daughter of her own in high school and she pays $1 a pair for her ?h.j-s and never blinks an eye lash. Rich? Not ?he and not her hus band either. He's merely well-to-do makes somet ling like eipht or ten thou sand p year and calls himself a poor man. His wife's father was a b'inker and lived in a house with a cupol they called it a mansion and thre as an iron do;r on one side of th st ps and an iron deer on the other and two little rhildren under an iron umbrella In th- middle of the l'ront lawn. So you can iee they were ieHl swells in their .lay and gener 1'iion. The daughter --f the bank clerk dresses better Todav than th daugh ter of the bank president drs-d a generation ape. And things cost two or thir time? as mn h now as they did then. I went ;rfo a shop th" other day to get a liltle round ek" of violet oap. th ir sime kind I've always pnid la cents a cake for and they askd me 50 cents for i.
