It is significant ever more be causc on that date piinciplcr, of frec dom and cuality and justicc werc proclaimed which were destined to ovrrturn the world. It has often been thouirht that American growth and prospcrity are due mostly to the fertile territories this country posscsses, with such abundant rcsourcs. But many oth rr countrics have cqual advantages. Mexico hs a land having supcrb re sources, yet its poople live in squal or and miscry. Prospcrity and suc cess then are not dependont so much on opportunitirs, as n the use that people make of them, and the piin ciples on which their community life is based. The nation founded July 4, 1776 has gone on to abundant prospcrity. principally because it was founded on right prkjciples. Thus basod, its people have worked unitedly, and bave accomplished the grand rcsult that now astonishos the world. Few people rralize the debt the people owe to the wondcrful ìnen who founded this republic. It was an net calling for matchless courasre. The signers of the declaration might have lived much moie eomfortabl if they had quietly submitted to the evils existing at the time. But they were not satisf.cd live under a government biscd wrong principici. They started movement that has swent over world, freoin? ali pcoplcs from cinse of abso'ution, and opcning wide the doors to demorratic oppor tunities cvervwherc.

THREE PER CENT ON SALES Competent business experts lay down the rule that a business may well appropriate 3 per cent on its gross sales for advertising. Many 'ests of a 3f er cent advertising out lay have resulted in increasing busi ness 33 1-3 per cent. To manv people 3 per cent wi!l seem a rather small amount for a business to spend to make itelf known and to communicate its offer ings to the public. Many conceins spend a good deal more than tha1, and find it nays. nnd that they could not exist without it. Publicity is reckoned as one of the essent ial expenses of the up to date business. It no more expeets to avo'd it than to avoid insurance on its stock or cost of clerk hire or rent. You can't sell goods unless the peo ple know what you have to ofTer, and 3 por cent seems a moderate tax for erctting that information to the public. GIRLS WANTED AT ONCE AT THE NEW METHOD LAUNDRY.
