You get im mediate returns; you know whether or not your advestisiug is effective; and you get all the general benefit you could possi bly derive from general advertis ing. You cannot trace the results i of general advertising except in , a general way. If at the end of a year or a number of years you have been successful,it is fair to assume that your advertising has been of some avail. On the contrary if your adver tising deals with particular items to be taken at once, you can see an immediate effect or you don't, and according as you realize immediately or otherwise you are able to judge of the ef fectiveness of your advertising. —Dry Goods Chronicle.

' One result of the war with Spain will be the disabusing of the popular mind : s ofthat idea which has become so tlior- . h oughly intrenched in tlie last half cent ury, that the United States could put into the field upon a moment's notice Enthusiasm, patriotism and readiness ! never make an army, and right there lie i , v the difficulties which have confronted j .tlie war administration ever since the authorization of Congress made possible ' the taking of steps for the putting of a H' force into the field. Tlie food t was con ; j a volunteer force sufficient to cope with the organi:# l armies of any of the old military nations. taking steps putting a force into the field. Tlie food problem is paramount for more reasons than one. f t is hard to believe tiiat in this great country it was not possible fora com missary general of subsistence, sit ting in bis office, with telegraph wires radiating to every great distributing center at his elbow, to at once procure the fulfillment of any contract for bread and meat and vegetables that he might see fit to enter into. p uf it is true, nevertheless, that these Hungs were not obtainable at first, Tpke, f° r instance, the question of hard bread used for tlie emergency ration as well as the regular one. There is not 111 the United States a manufactory pro during this class of subsistence which j, a8 tj ie capacity fitting it to enter into a contract to feed or to furnish food for io,GOO men in addition to its regular trade. America is not a warlike nation. America has never seen fit to build up or foster manufactories which in time of war would be called upon to fill these necessities. As a result, private capital has been invested solely in those lines where the returns are speedy through daily consumption and demand, and, when it became necessary to secure food in plenty, it took time to get the great bakeries into action. sdsaes, sm to produce one-fifth the beef which was wanted last week. They will do so very soon, but it was the desire of Commissary-General Eagan that when troops should be called to move they would move with at least three month's rations, and, although the markets of the country were scoured, there was no such tiling as securing tlie f 00 d necessary. In other lines of the same department there was some diffl culty in filling out tlie rations' compon e nti, but these two illustrate the great difficulty which was met A nd then having fed tlie soldier it be conies necessary to clothe and shelter him. The United States Government, by reason of its non-military character, had never provided for extra tentage am i there cxieted in tlie storerooms of the Nation not more than enough canvas to cover perhaps 40,000 troops, At once the warehouses and the mills W ere approached and every yard of can vas suitable to make a tent was bought bv the quartermaster-general, and yet, w 'h en all was purchased, not more than j ia jf enough had been secured, and the factories were compelled, bv running triple speed, to manufacture' now the goods wnich, in a country ever ready for war, would have been in the depots of the government, There does not exist in any store, manufactory or sweat shop in the entire nation ready-made uniforms to clothe 20,000 men. Underwear, socks, all the a of a It and as a component parts of a soldier's outfit, wm not carried in stock, and had to be nude. Take the item of shoes. It is estimated that outside of tlie serve supply for the regular army, whieb, perhaps, readied 10,000 pairs, there did not exist in the entire United States 101 dozen pairs of shoes suitable for army use when the call to arms was heard. All these tilings had to be made. But even clad and sheltered and fed, tlie soldier is yet not half a soldier, for lie must have arms, and of the latest model. There again the shortage lias been felt, and it has been necessary,too, to equip the volunteers from the arms which they carried as the State Militia, not the improved long-range rifle which the regular soldier carries, but the older forty-five caliber which the government, officially discarded many years ago. Of course all the lactories are working bard, but here again a peaceful has never fostered the imrking of large stocks, has never justified tlie holdiugof thousands of arms awaiting for a call 6v their use. Tlie man who ten years agei had decider! to invest in 100,000 rifles and wait for a war to get a return for bin money would have been charged as in competent and his estat e turned over to his friends. Anddflfect that no mate or number of men ever carried such stocks, has caused the arming of the vol unteers to be a source of anxiety, of loss of time. Belts, cartridges and the equipment ol the soldier for tlie march must all be >nv sidered. In all the varied industries of the nation the making of a cartridge belt enters in only so far as the sports man or the militiaman proves a custo mer. The same is true of the cartridge "'here the supply burned on rifle ranges: alone needs replenishing, and yet this its but a drop in the bucket to the millions of bullets needed to send into the field an army. Nor are these all the items of equipment which are hard to find. nation s,| I' er *>tltions and Some of the Pecn t he Game of Poker, , . „ ar .

For the benefit of the uninitiated, it ic worth saving that the cold feet refers to a habit of some small gamblers who play for the money that is in it, saving excuse 'My feet are cold,' and getting out of a game when they are ahead. "That reminds me that women, aa well as men, are natural gamblers, and, in consequence, there have been many friendships of long standing among men ruined forever by progressive euchre. Why, I have played in ga where the cheating of some of women was as palpable to a man who is accustomed to card playing as the nose on your face.

It's a regular gambling game, but the people who indulge in that kind of sport will jump on a man who plays a little quiet game of poker at home. "Nor is the gambling instinct oblit erated from the progressive social games entirely, for there was a game I heard of where the head prize was made up of five 85 gold pieces, all tied up with blue ribbon, and you can bet the men in that, game were working hard for the head prize, for some of them wanted that twenty-five with a want that must be filled. I expect some of them cheated, but as a lady, who was a guest at the home of the hostess, go: all the money, and the hostess, did the punching of the tickets, there was a faint suspicion that a few extra holes got into the young lady's card by mistake—on purpose.
