Barnum and the smaller showman in regard to the iatter's adversity runs as follows: "There is no use to complain," ad vised Barnum, ''why don't you adver tise?" "That is iust it." was the reply. "I can't afford to advertise. " To which the philosopher who knew the world so well, answered with a shrug, You mean you can't afford not to advertise." . That reminds us that a book agent came into our office a few weeks ago and wanted to sell us Dr.,Eliot's works in a nice set of volumes. . Every reader knows what Dr. Eliot's works are, but it fs also a fact that news papers are the creatures of advertising. The agent was told that we would like to have the works on an advertising ex chang6 basis, and thereupon began a discussion of the merita of advertising. The agent said that Dr. Eliot's works needed no advertising they sold them selves. He did not believe in advertis ing. The advertised article was not good, going a little further with his argument to state that Mrs. Wilbank's boarding house needed no advertising; the quality and abundance of her table sufficed. The agent carried with him sufficed. The agent earned with h.m a very elaborately and . expensively printed sheet describing the manner jind stylo in which the books were -printed and bound and the different styles of binding, with quotations and references also concerning the author. Weasked him if these hne large print- cd folders were not advertising and if We asked him if these fine large print- his presence in Union City as salesman, was not a form of advertising the books; furthermore if the agents did not go among the people with their descriptive .literature and relate the merits of Dr. Eliot's works how many would be saoM. The- fact is that his work and the literature he carried with him wero advertising of the most pronounced character. The idea that Dr. Eliot is a standard author permits of no argu ment; but that Dr. Eliot's works need no advertising is another question, which of course disproves the theory that all advertised articles are not good. The fact is that the best articles of clothing or food now made are nearly all advertised articles. - Mention can be ' tnade of thousands, but it is not neces jary. Advertising in some form is not a question of choice. It is a necessity. It was so in Barnum's day. It is more o now. The man who expects to in crease his business must advertise. The tn&n who would make a great success in the business world cannot do with out advertising. He may advertise in nfiwsnaners. on the bill boards or through the mails, in either or all, but tho fact remains that he is compelled to. advertise if he succeeds. The man who may not advertise is he who wishes to reduce his holdings and retire from business. , And yet it takes advertising to close out his business. Advertising pays, so. declared 'the "big showman. Advertising is an asset concludes John Wanamaker. . The Gambler a Howl It looks like the newspapers which oppose the tax on cofton futures are not fair enough to state the matter fully, and the people, many of them, get the matter confused. There is no proposition before Congress to eliminate future. No such thing is incorporated in any bill or amendment introduced or proposed, and the newspapers mak ing war on the legislation which is actu ally proposed are evidently, trying to confuse the teadcti with a long dia tribe on the menace to the South in the elimination of cotton futures. The bill whicli was originally introduced carries a tax on dealings in cotton futures only where no delivery is actu ally made or contemplated. The tax I . ... ts aimed at nothing but tne gambim , ... . j . t i features oi futures, ana mere us ueeu ' a regular upheaval in Wall street and St. .rfri .11 thro.,!! the country to i - - . th h; np tt - amendment to the j -j- j - I . .t. : 4 .1, :,v substitution of anything and everything that will neutralize its effect. The cot ton grower has been trying for years to counteract this manipulation, this rmmrtlinor in furnrpR. which has IllOre i i, ,li.;n,.nuf ,A Ua intpr. ' " """""" "" eats, and now that Democrats in Con gress are trying to redeem their pledges along comes these newspapers trying to pull the wool over the eyes of the cot ton grower with a lot of empty sound ing argument. Technically there1 is a difference in going into a broker's office nd a bucket shop and staking your money on the rise or fall of a given commodity. Practically there is no difference. In case of the bucket shop the wager is made outright. In case of the broker a marginal deal of five or ten per cent is made with no purpose under the sun of actual transfer. The whole scheme is gambling. The bona fide future deal is one made and carried out with the actual transfer of Jthe stock or cotton, and no tax is proposed for the latter. The idea' is to stop; the gambling in futures, and if the Democratic party has ever made a solemn pledge at all it is this pledge to the cotton growers of the South. ' The gambling-dyed newspaper cries Democracy,, the great constitutional party, until that party actually ma terializes and then it wants no Democ racy- ' . ... The products of the world, tuese news papers say, must be handled by gam blers. The shoe has been pinching the ; producer for years and years and the burden grows heavier, and just as they begin to strike at the real cause up turns that part of the press whose patriotism goes no farther than the possession of the spoils. No real Democracy, the party of the people, do they want. Mayor Crump, of Memphis, has de termined to ride rough shod over the Tehnesseo Legislature and everybody and everything connected with it. He as set himself up as an iron handed, conscienceless despot. Mayor Crump has an ambition and that ambition does not comDrehend anything but power. Uke . other tyrants-bia i3 abnormally devel- bump of egotism is abnormally devel oped. He does not know that there is yawning precipice ready to- engulf m. He has no character. His the antithesis of 'statesmanship, Call him Democrat and his expression will a' ,ume thebljinklookof n8avage. Mayor .
