UiU appeared in New York City with tbe DenaiAn Thompson theatrical troupe, alter a series of the roost bril liant successes known to tbe Ameri can stage. These had been achieved not upon the recognized talents of the great comedian, which are undeniably great, but because Mr. Hill had in t reduced the moat novel and costly system of advertising ever known in the annals of the stage or press. Wherever he went, he, acting in the full faith that his theory that a good newspaper was a better advertising medium than an acre of bill hoard was the true one, secured a whole page of the newspapers wherever he alight happen to be, for the purpose of presenting tbe merits of his enter tainmeut, In St. Louis he mid fur i a page in the (HubeIhm(crut, JUpub lican and Tutwt at their full rates. He did the same thing in Chicago, and he still followed out his idea wherever the company played. But when Mr. Hill went to New York, the people laughed. Old thea ter managers said that "Joshua Whit comb" might do for the "provinces," but it couldn't become a success in tbe metropolis. If Boston and Chicago wasted to go to see it, why well enough. New York didn't propose to follow in their wake no sir, Gotham was a different kind of a place from these outside villages. Mr. Hill secured as great a space in all the New York dailies as they would permit him to occupy. Ou the Sunday before he opened, every daily in tbe city had a full page about "Uncle Josh." The Herald: rate for advertising is known to be enormous, and it charged Hill by the line. That one day's advertising cost him $4,000. This is a good deal of money to lay out with the newspapers. It means the gross receipts of one good week's business, and there are not many man agers who are willing to lay out in a day what they expect to take in in a week. But its effect was felt on the first night, for Thompson opened to more money than he ever before played to, his business grew until there was no longer standing room, and the close of tbe week showed the receipts to be over $6,000. That's what advertising did for Den man Thompson in that over adver tised city of New York. There is everything in understand ing the art . It is one of the most im portant factors in the success of a business that it be well advertised. Tnen the question arises what it good advertising. In ancient Greece the oratorical crier was a member of society whose avocation was looked upon with the highest respect. The merchants of those days duly recog nized the value of these advertisers of their wares and treated them accord ingly. True they had bill boards and hand bills for the disposal of books and for prospectuses, but for the sale of general wares the crier was looked upon as their only profitable medium of advertising. 1li.tk nnaiL.nii iwp i t -k Koa i.i. r i .i " f usurped the functions of the crier of antiquity, and ae au inferior article or I practice hardly ever supplants its pre-1 deceesors it is to be presumed that tbe newspaper should be more favorably accepted by the mercantile public than tbe crier of the ancients. In business philosophy this should be conclusive ; in practice it is found that it does not always meet acceptation as an axiom. To-day the successful merchant or tradesman, as of old, finds it necessa ry to advertise, and he who does it with an open hand reaps his reward. Bat of the thousands who wish to be known as being in business and who are so penurious as to not even insert an "ad" in their local paper "unless it is taken out in trade," there are uine - -r . t. u ..-it j . ft ! the commercial grave of tbe bank rupt, interred there by the energy of their neighbors and their own lassi tude. The merchant who has goods to dis pose of mast aaake it known. The mere met that tbe goods are on his shelves won't draw enough custom to pay hit gas bill. That he is a scoun drel, a cheat or a swindler in his trans actions will soon make itself known. The wiBg of gossip is more rapid in its fight than he who would "put a girdle round the earth in forty rain ataa. But nnadorned fact doesn't fly ae fast as Peek. If there are profita ble investments to be had at his store, be mast seek the newspaper as the only proper and tbe best means ot in forming tbe whole public Thev won't eome if tbev don't know what ha has. They can't know what he has nalen be advertise. Tbe way to pponarly advertise is to call aloud to tUfWw tWeagk the columns of a The tcitanVia as eld aa adverts tog, ana', one.

' . . . , xie isaiwureui a giauu.tc ( one of Indiana's best colleges, a gentleman of pleasant address, a ready talker and he is not averse to talking. His voluble diatribes on the subject of "free education," or in fact any education at all, used to furnish me an unfailing source of entertainment, and the dashing letter which- be launches at me is in his characteristic vein. He has been for ruany years a resi dent ot the mountainous regions of West Virginia, and the nature of his pursuits separates him much of hisi time from his family, and far from j ! the habitations of civilized man. His lapse from the doctrine of free schools and universal education is a striking illustration of the Spencerian theory of modification of species un der the influence of the "environ ment." His letter is wholly ii(;t and unpremeditated, and if he is where the United States mail can reach him he will be greatly surprised to see it iu print, but that wont set him back an inch, since he would tie able to maintain his premises with im lerturhable gravity before the most learned body in America. I furnish tbe letter in the hope that some of your readers may relish its perusal as much as I did. My Deluhed Fri ni: I hope you have recovered from your hal lucination since your return to your "great west that mad dream ot edu cating the masses at the expense ot the few, called by the popular name of free schools. That word free was well chosen by the framers of the first, bill presented before the legisla ture. It has a "taking" name, for the great people are always charmed with free lunch, free ticket." to theaters, free rides etc. It sounds so honest, no advantage taken there, for it enxx nothing apparently, and as it costs nothing it is very little appre ciated, very few go, aud those ivho pretend to go, do not attend one fourth the time as there is nothing lost, for it vufs nothing, loosing sight of the 'fact that precious time is lot to which money is nothing. If they were compelled to pay even a small price that any man of family, uo dif ference how poor, could pay, that time they pay for would be consumed even to the smallest end. In our mountains may be seen, in every square of two miles, those detestable little martin boxes stuck on the knobs, aud enthroned therein a big six tooted . f. . . wieWini. an enormous hirch by the aid of which lie tries to drive three or four little pepper boxes into and through the mazy labyrinths of the black art. Ami though he has succeeded in driving, with much punching, the poor wretches into it, you can see despair straddling his marble brow, for he has not sense enough to help them find their way through. At the end of the session thev are ieuoramuses vet. Were this tuition paid for, teachers would be selected. As it is, these same teachers are thrown into a metaphorical hat aud those having the longest legs are drawn out first.
