MIOOINS : PUBLISHER OFPIC*, OLD CITY HALL BUILDING PHONE 1*1. SUBSCRIPTION PATElT The 8eiHte*»l-R#oord Is delivered by «*rrier to «ny part of the city or sent by mat! to any address. ONE YEAR .*6.00 SIX MONTHS. .3,00 THREE MONTHS.1.50 ONE MONTH. 60 Sabsr-riber# failing to gat their paper daily will please report same to the office. PRACTICAL AND THEORETICAL. Necessary to the success of any health resort are two essentials. The * first of these Is that the resort shall have patronage, and the second of these is that the pationage shall re ceive profit from the visit and go away disposed to send others In turn In another column of the Sentlnel ltecord this morning is an article from the pen of a local physician on tlie subject of our patronage. Our Business Men’s League, through its advertising fund, has almost an swered the question of bringing pat ronage to our resort. Of course our people pay the freight of the adver tising campaign, and the advertising each and every year will be just us extensive as the funds supplied will pay for. Then the question of making our visitors go away satisfied and disposed to send other visitors here naturally arises. There ia no argument to the fact that every visitor coming to Hot Springs for his health should have the counsel of a physician There is probably not as great real physical danger in taking the baths without the advice of an examining physician, as some might believe, but there is great waste and great dissatisfaction. if a person is ill and cCrme.s here for the hot water baths, and take* 7 them without medical advice, and goes aw*y without the benefits he should have received, the resort suffers. The hot waters comprise no cure-all, and if the visitor has a physician, and is not cured or benefited, he at least understands why. To make an arbitrary rule which requires every bather in the hot wa ters to first have consulted a physi cian does not Bound practical We * have thousands of people listed amors ■ the good patrons of this resort who have no chronic ailment. Thousands come here lust for that "good clean ing up" for which the waters are famed. Therefore arbitrary ruleR will not apply well to the local situation. Practical and professional men, in a position to know from experience and observation, tell us that too many people are passing through our hot -orator treatments without the results they should receive, and that the rea son lies in that they are not prop erly applying the remedy. The statistics at the office of the United States government will show that a smaller percentage of our vis itors are bathing under the direction of a .ihysician than ever before. Those two facts taken together point to a conclusion. In the “halcyon days” when every hotel keeper and every doctor drum-1 mer and every co-operative agent was in close communication with the doc tor’s office, the visitors all bathed under physician’s direction, because every influence caused them to re gard the physician as a necessity. There was a consideration between the physician and the influence, how ever. The day came when the considera tion was removed. Then the general disposition to urge that visitors have a physician began to wane. Every citizen of Hot Springs should campaign just as vigorously amoug the visitors encourage theii to have an attending physician now, as in the old days. The consideration remains the same, only is less direct. The consideration now is a satisfied patronage and one that will depurt in a humor to send us other patrons —-and our whole prosperity lies in ovr patronage The physician will prosper to a far greater extent, of course, but it a real and genuine co-operative spirit exists in the community, the physician can increase his helpfulness to the com munity through larger subscriptions to public funds, and the upbuilding that will result will be fait eveu to! every pocketbook In Hot Springs. “Puudewit'' and “boneyfugle" have become far too tame terms for the Republicans at Chicago. ’Thief." •‘crook,” ‘ fraud,’* ■"'saturnalia,” “lar ceny,” "corruption,” “bribery,” ‘ folly,” "Indecency,” are more in order and twice as emphatic. The JRooaevelt followers have adopt ed a little campaign insignia, consist lug of a button bearing the reproduc tion of the colonel’s sombrero within a ring. Whenever we see It on a lapel, we think of Jim Jeffries. You know he was In the ring once. Mayor Caynor says the Democrats should nominate “a good, square in telligent man ” The Republicans find this a very bard thing to do, even with BUI Taft who Is almost equilat eral. Free Silver Bill Bryan preferred to sit with the newspaper boys at Chi cago, which goes to show that he desired to he seen only in (he com pany of gentlemen. But from some points of view' It Is an honored distinction to be a member of the minority party, when one thinks what has to be endured to be with the majority. Along about the first of last week the Republicans needed a big man, and they had him—-Elihu Root. The Payne-Aldrich combination at the Chicago convention was enough, how’ever, to drive out the common herd. The president refuses to knock Wood. Four short years ago, how they loved each other. Jane, the month of britles, grad nates, conventions and hay fever. If Teddy is not nominated Dr. Ab bot may give him a job reporting the Baltimore convention for the Outlook. if a new party is launched with reddy as its leader, the bull moose will undoubtedly be chosen as its em blem. A lot of steel springs were recently sent into the interior of Africa. The natives are tired of frying mission aries on forked sticks. What rhymes with ‘'nomination’" Of course "abomination.” The whole country endorses the rhythm, tot). In Italy they license band organs which are In tune and those whicn can’t get a license are shipped to tnis country. A Texaa woman nearly died due to a tit of laughter, but immediately re covered when told that her back hair was coming down. A movement is on foot to establlan a memorial honoring Wilbur Wright. It is humbly suggested that, a cem etery lot be purchased ft>r worthy and deserving aviators. Mexican rebs have taken another belting. There must be some nerve In them to stand so much punishment.
