A Sbort Talk About Advertising.
It Is a first rate rule never to do
any advertising from which It would
be impossible to trace results. There
Is a great deal of talk about the mys
tery of advertising, and its uncer
tainty, but there iu'Uany more mys
tery or any more uncertainty about it
than there is about any other busi
ness undertaking.
A grocer may buy a box of soap and
place it under the counter and leave
it there until it gets so hard as to be
utterly vulutless. This same man can
buy advertising space and so use it
that lie will derive no benefit, from it,
and there is no need of his wasting
either the space or the advertising.
Run your advertising with the same
common sense that you do the rest of
your business, and there will be no
guess work about it. It will pay
every time, but don't buy space on
bill boards, do not buy little tin signs
and tack upon fences; do not hire
some perambulating painter to dis
figure the public places with your
name and address and patronize every
advertising fake that may comcalong.
There Isn't one time in ten thousand
that you can tell absolutely whether
this kind of advertising pays or not.
The dinners are one to one that it
does not.
Put your hopes in the newspapers.
Talk about some certain thing and
get ready for the customers. If It Is
a good tiling, at the right price, and
you nave told about it plainly and
forcibly, you will sell It, sure. If
your business is not large enough to
justify extensive advertising, better
conline your work to the columns of
the best paper in the town. Better
turn a deaf ear to everything else until
you have made a strong and deep Im
pression upon the readers of the best
paper. It Is a pretty sure thing that
the best people in town those whose
trade is most desirable are the ones
who take the best paper. Its circula
tion Is made up of the cream of the
community, and you had better get
all the trade you can out of that cir
culation before you turn to something
else.

"GOD, GIVE US KEN."
Edgar Wilson, the Jackson corres
pondent of the N. O. Picayune, draws
this unhappy picture or the situation
now confronting Mlssisslpoians. every
line of whiJh Is literally true:
The time has come t .) speak to Mis
sissippians plainly. The situation is
not one ol pride lo high-minded sons
of the State.
It lias been said that the Legisla
ture, which assembles in this city
next .I.muarv. will not find a dollar in
the State Treasury. Those who know
best say this Is literally true. Nay,
more. The treasury will be empty in
a few months, and the State will
again be compelled to tide along until
the tax-gatherers report on its promi
ses to pay. In plain terms, more
warrants must Issue.
On top of this heavy load under
which the State Is sweating and
grunting the State-house is toppling
down. The next Legislature must
either further tax the people to build
a new one or repair tlie old one. it Is
confessed with humiliation that, the
Capitol of Mississippi is spoken of as
unsafe ; that it presents the most 'un
sightly appearance of any Capitol
building in the nation, North or
South. Its inotely walls have not
seen a paint brush in twenty years.
The plastering Is blistered where it
has not parted company with the
ceiling ; great cracks a foot wide grin
and yawn at visitors; walls 17 inches
out of plumb are held together by
hog-chains and supported by monster
pieces of timber; and but why go
on? The heart sickens and the eye
seeks less unpleasing sights.
But, alas ! what do we see ? Melan
choly thought ! A sad commentary on
the situation. We behold candidates
for State ollices yes, even for govern
or, the exalted office for chief magis
trate of this proud commonwealth a
position tilled by a Polndexter, a Mc
Nutt. a Runnels, a Foote, a Quitman,
a McWillie, a Brown, and now graced
by a Stone running over the State
predicating their claims to a Dem
ocratic nomination for that office upon
a single national issue, "the free and
unlimited coinage of silver at the ra
tio of 10 to 1, without international
agreement," to the utter exclusion of
a discussion of State issues. We see
candidates for be it constables doing
the same thing. They do not do it
quite so well as candidates for gov
ernor, but they do it more naturally.
We see Frank Bnrkitt, the apostle of
Populiteism in Mississippi, accusing
t hese persons of stealing a plank in
the Populite platform, the shibboleth
of which party is "Hi to 1." We read
column after column in the Slate
press signed by candidates for the leg
islature, claiming that tlie country Is
in the throes of death, and that "10 to
I" is the only cure; that they will
vote for no candidate for the United
States Senate who does not favor "iO
to 1." And some of them evidently
do not know that the Senator to be
chosen by the Legislature next Jan
uary wi1! not take the oath of office
until March 4, isoo, and that unless
there shall be a called session of Con
gressa most unlikely thing that
we will not vote on liny question be
fore the following December, four
and a half years from now; and that
If half tlieys iv ab iul the condition
of the country and the necessities of
the people is true, we will all be dead
long lielore tout time "starved to
death." Like some of the candidates
for governor, they are utterly Ignoring
State matters with which they must
deal, vital natters, and are prating
about matters with winch they have
nothing on earth to do. If there
shall boa change in the financial pol
icy of the united States it will be set
tled at the presidential election in
18H0, or by the legislature following
immediately thereafter, long before
the Senator to be elected in Jauuary
next ever takes his seat.
The next governor of Mississippi
will be called upon to reorganize the
judiciary of the State. Every circuit
judge and chancellor will have to
walk the plank or he reappointed. A
successor to Judge Cooper, on the su
preme bench, must also be named.
Already it is openly talked that this
man or that will get this judgeship or
that ;-that this chancellor or that
will go to this man or that, and so-aud-so
will be appointed supreme
court judge. Tills is scandalous.
Time was when a mere hint of such a
thing would have caused public sen
timent to gorge; to apply to any such
supposed cabal a sedentary farce suffi
cient to spread the actors nt rest for
ever. But, O, the times ; (), the man
ners. The appointive judiciary sys
tem was kept in the new constitution
that the judicial ermine might be
kept out of the slime of pot-house
politics.
But bad as the situation Is repre
sented, there is yet time for reforma
tion. It is never loo late to do good.
And all the indications point to the
fact that the patriotism of tlie State
is fast arousing; that endurance has
reached its bounds.
A devoted Mississippian, after la
menting what he termed a day of
small men, in conversation with the
Picayune correspondent, said : "Oh,
for a Lamar! He would flutter the
time-servers and place-hunters, like
an eagle in a dove-cete."
What we would like to know is
when the "ouecr story" was found
on an Island out from Biloxi corked up
in a bottle if P. K. Mayers was with
the editor of the Grccdwood Enter
prise ? Like a tlsh story it sometimes
requires witnesses to substantiate
tlie statement. Newton County Pro
gress. We were not with the editor of tlie
Greenwood Enterprise when he found
the bottled up story, but the picture
drawn of men and events are so true
to life that we accept Has such, and
deny that it has the semblance of a
fish story.
Maj. R. A. Vaneleavc, candidate for
Auditor of the State was in town
Thursday. Mr. Vaneleavc is the af
fable gentleman wtio presided over
the Pass Christian Convention last
year. He will make a big race for tlie
office he seeks. Woodvllie Republi

When Ex-Governor Lubbock, of
Texas, shook hands with Miss Win

the old man's neck and mingled her
tears with his.
By reference to our announcement
