BALL ROOM TAXED.
It would 1m impossible to conceive
of a more fittinsr illustration of the
trrowth of the advertising idea, as a
business-j-its importanre as a factor
in modprn commprcp.
The rupsts at thp notable banquet
were seatetl at about nine p;reat
tables one table running the pntiw
lencth of the immensp ball roonv
and projpctin"; therefrom, eijrht
pronprs, eaeh one over fifty fept lonp;
an d accom m od at i n tr o ver fi f t v puests.
At the head table were the fourmem
bers of the firm F. Wayland Aver,
Henry N. McKinney. Albprt G. Brad
ford and Jarvis A. Wood together
with the puests of honor.
Following the invocation, the pood
thingH provided were heartily dis
cussed. Durinjr the progress of the
banquet, speech and pleasantry were
indulged, entirely in an impromptu
mnnner rendering the occasion still
more social and familiar in its aspect.
There was no formal program of
speech making.
DECORATIONS.
The tables were decorated with
simlax and trailing arbutus. ' The
head table bore six enormous baskets
of flowers, many of them being:
orchids and other rare blossoms.
Each of the eight shorter tables bore
three enormous baskets of flowers
similar in nature, but all varied and
variegated as to color. At each
plate was placed a butonniere, and
every man present found when he sat
down that a little bunch of the very
best possible cigars was waiting for
his use, tied with ribbons of the civic
colors of Philadelphia.
PRESENTATION TO MR. AYER.
At a given signal, James A. Bu
chanan, the dean of the business get
ting staff, rose in his place, and
catching Mr. Ayer's attention, in a
very apt speech presented him with a
massive sterling silver loving cup.
Mr. Ayer, although taken completely
by surprise, accepted the gift in a
most felicitous way, even though he
found it difficult to express himself
under the circumstaces. This event
was characterized by an immense
amount of enthusiasm on the part
of all present. The cup was indeed,
a tribute which any man mijrht be
proud to receive from his friends,
business associates and employes.
Upon one side was inscribed the fol
lowing: "Presented to F. Wayland
Ayer by the employees of N. W. Ayer
& Son at a banquet commemorating
t he fortieth anniversary of the found
ing of the firm." Upon another
side appeared these words: ' "Belle-vue-Stratford,
Philadelphia, April 24,
1900."
Upon the third side, "There is no
better motto than 'Keeping ever
lastingly at it brings success,' and
no better example of it than F. W.
A."
The letters "F. V. A." were in Mr.
Ayer's characteristic style of signa
ture affixed to the mass of documents
which has passed through his hands
in tbe past forty years. At the close
of the banquet which occurred
promptly at 12 midnight, all present
rose to their feet and joined the quar
tet in sinsring "God Be With Us
Until We Meet Again."
THE FIRM'S HISTORY.
In 1867, Nathan W.Ayer, a native
of Connecticut and a graduate of
Brown University, removed from
Western New York to Philadelphia
to continue in a private school the
work of teaching, to which his life
had leeri devoted.
In 1808, his son. F. Wayland
Aver, then a student in the Univer
sity of Rochester, New York, followed
him to Philadelphia to seek his for
tune in business. Without friends,
acquaintances or business experience,
he did not readily find remunerative
employment, and, as a temporary
expedient, accepted an engagement
as solicitor of advertising for a re
ligious weekly newspaper.
April 1. 18G9, the firm of N. W.
Ayer & Son was announced. George
O. Wallace was its first employe.
In 1873, Mr V. Ayer died, and
at the begint. , 1874, Mr. Wal
lace was admiv.- J to an interest in
the business, which continued until
his death in 1887.
Henry N. McKinney entered the
employ of the house in1875, and be
came a partner in 1877.
Albert G. Bradford removed from
Albany, N. Y., in 1884 to enter the
employ of the firm and was admitted
into partnership ia 1898.
Jarvi A. Wood engaged with the
1 house in 1888 and became a partner i
; in 1898. !
I April 1. 18G9,the Avers, father and
son. started the advertising business
ar 53(1 Arch street, with an invest
ment of $250.
In the fall of the snme year they,
removed to 719 8anom street. In
January, 1872. larger quarters were
again necessary, and they went to
733 Sansom street.
Again outgrowing their accommo
dations, they removed in 187G into
the bnUditr then being: erected for
the Philadelphia Times, at Chestnut
nnd Eighth street a. -Uere-they stayed
for twenty-six years, havinggradual
ly extended over four floors of the
Times building and three floors of an
amoinmfr one.
Early in 1903, the firm removed to
tli3 Mariner and Merchant building.
Third and Chestnut streets, where it
occupies several floors, and whpre ad
ditional space has several times been
tnken, including quarters in adjoining
buildings.
Starting without any employes, the
Ayer & Son family, as they term it.
has constantly grown. In 187G it
numbered twenty; in 1894, 125; in
1903. 200. and at thedmnercelehrat
ing this birthday, thpre were 2G3.
Among these are many who are ex
pprt in somp particular essential to
sueeessful ad vertising; and as a whole,
they form an organization that has
no pper in the advertisinar world.
The first year Ayer & Son's busi
ness was $15,000. In ten years they
were doing: the largest business in
their line a position which has been
maintained by them ever since.
I Their explanation of this growth is
that they have made advertising pay
the advertiser.
They carry on their books on an
average 18,000 open accounts with
publishers, and the amount they have
paid the newspapers of this countrv
exceeds $50,000,000.
Great as this sum is, it is small in
comparison with the other millions
that have been paid to the newspa
pers throuerh other sources for ex
ploiting; articles along advertising
trails blazed by N. W. Ayer & Son.
Ayer & Son have made a specialty
of advertising: staples. In thp parly
daj's it was thought that advertising
was appropriate only for proprietors
of patpnt mpdicinps, or, at bpst, for
an owner of a specialty. This fallacy
thev have effectually exploded.
Many specialties have been made
by advertising, and the staples of
commerce have sold in this way to
an extent the fathers never dreamed
of.
As a singrle illustration of this
point, witness the well-known soda
cracker which when griven a name
suggested by A' er & Son, advertised
by plans made by them, packed in a
remarkable carton and marketed by
a wonderful organization, has made
the advertising success of the age
Uneeda Biscuit.
Ayer & Son state that they have
more faith in advertising today than
ever before.
Looking backward, they see hun
dreds of business men who a few
years ago said, "Advertising would
do me no good," but who today are
using it regularly and profitably.
Looking forward, they see hun
dreds more who will either have to
adopt this modern trade-building
method or see their business go to
more enterprising and progressive
competitors.
More Food Supplies.
Charlotte Chronicle.
The interest that has been excited
in corn culture in this section of the
State gives pretty good assurance
that this year's corn crop in North
Carolina will be the largest ever pro
duced. The incidents of last week's
corner in wheat shows that the South
ougrht to help the West raise wheat.
As the corner is analyzed, it shows
conclusively that it was made possi
ble by the shortage in the wheat
supply. There have been indications
of a break-away from all cotton and
the sooner that comes the better.
The . country is not producing too
much cotton, but it is producing too
little breadstuffs. The possibilities
of truck and grain farming are usu
ally lost in the rise of the cotton
market, which happens every year
just about corn planing time, and
many small farmers are tempted to
put everything down in cotton. The
rapid growth of the population of
this country requires a correspond
ingly larger increase in the food sup
ply. Tne farmers business and op
portunities are always on the in
crease. Patronize Home Industries.
There is much good, wholesome
food for thought in the following bit
of logic from an exchange, which
many of our own people might pon
der and act upon with profit to them
selves and the whole community:
"Many a town hap grown into a
large and prosperous city in a few
years because of local patriotism and
; public spirit. Both of these are en
couraged and developed through the
habit of patronizing home industriesJ
It is one of the most important
habits for the people of any town to
form if they would advance their
own community. .No man who makes
his living out cf a town is showing a
fair spirit who sends the money he
gets out of that town to some other
town for goods which he can get as
cheap at home. Patronizing home
industries is not only business-like,
. but is fair and right."

, About those green hats for young

"familiarized" himself with on that

would be more becoming to his
"style of beauty.'' And he could cer
tainly work the thing on his friends

Letter to William Buchan
Henderson, -V. C.
Dear Sir: What will it cot to ow
ten acres hall wheat and half daisy
mixed? and what'Il the crop be worth?
We don't know what daisy -seed cost,
nor how bulky it is; we -uspect half
wheat and half daisy would make a big
crop of daisies, and last a lon time; the
wheat might lie short. ,
The parable throws some light on the
cost of a paint half whitewash. White
wash mixed half-and-half with paint,
ia all-paint in look and feel; indeed nine
teatbs of the "paint" in the store is
part whitewash; some half, some more,
some less.
Paint has to be spread with the brush,
the surface prepared, the ladders, scaf
folds, pulleys and ropes arranged and
moved, there's a great deal of labor in
patting paint on; it costs $2 to $4 a
gallon to do it.
What does it cost to paint whitewash?
Jost the same. Half-whitewash? Jnst
the same. It doesn't seem worth while,
for the whitewash does harm, not good.
Will the paint bold the whitewash
fast? or the whitewash loosen the paint?

Well Being of Society and
the Stability of . Our Ameri
can Institutions Mr. James
H. Patten, Secretary of ihe
Immigration Restriction
League, Gives Interesting i
Opinions as to the Coming of
Foreigners toJThis Country.
Charlotte Chronicle, May 1st.
Mr. James II. Patten, secretary
of
the Immigration Restriction League,
with headquarters at liostou, Mass.,
was in the city for a short while
today between trains, and while here
gave a reporter an Interesting state
ment on the present work of the
League.
Mr. Patten is a lawyer nud has
been employed in the interests of
j procuring Federal legislation that
( will tend to reduce immigration at
least the undesirable immigrant.
I Mr. Patten declares that New Eng
! land is still suffering as a result of
the recent great influx of undesirable
immigrants, and he declares that
that section now is in a position to
have a practical understanding of
the South s race problem. '
In speaking of the work of the Im
migration Restriction Lcagu. Mr.
Patten said among other things:
" 'Protection,' in the sense of pro
tecting the Americans and every
thing American, from the vicious, in
sidious onslaught of these new alien
brownish races now being brought
by the profit-making foreign steam
ship companies for the first time, is
fast becoming a real live topic.
"It is a travesty on the Republican
party, or on any 'protection-Democrat,'
if thpre can be such a hybrid
emulsion f opposite to argue for a
protection duty on the pauper-made
goods of Europe, and not allow his
tender affections for the American
workingman's welfare and wages
make him even more vehemently in
favor of shutting out the foreign
ehpap labor itself, especially that
from the heel and toe of Italy, and
the black hole of Western Asia.
FAVORS OVERMAN AMENDMENT.
Mr. Patten favors the amendment
of Senator Overman of North Caro
lina that a $10 tax be placed on nil
immigrants to this country, saying:
"This would go farther toward pro
tecting our American wxrkingmen
from the ruinous competition of for
eign pauper labor and towards rais
ing revenue than any provision in
the bill now pending.
"During the last three years the
steamships have brought to this
country over six millions of aliens.
Such a multitude exceeds the popula
tion of any one of the States or Ter
ritories and is greater than the peo
ple in a certain one-fourth of the
United States.
"The Northeast is suffering all
sorts and kinds of ills, bodily, so
cial, political, economic and moral,
and its charity workers and public
ists are casting about for remedies at
Washington. In answer to their de
mands for Federal relief by restrict
ive legislation, it is said the South
wants and needs this alien surplus of
the present foreign influx of "Da
goes," Turks, Greeks, Syrians, and
other races akin to the negroid races,
and distribution and division is ar
gued by the opposition composed of
the steamship companies and their
allies, the exploiters and misguided
citizens.
"Does the Southland want this in
discriminate influx? It might mean a
little more wealth for the time being,
as did the importation of African al
ien labor, but would entail as that
did 'Ills that the South even knows
not of.'
"As I said, during the past five
years the steamship companies have
brought to thp United States over
nix million foreigners, half of whom
remain only long enough to earn a
few hundred dollars by living on
practically nothing and spending
less, and then leave for their native
lands, not to return again to spend
their parsimonious savings.
"Why should not they and the for
eign steamship companies contribute
sometiug towards the financial sup
port of the Federal and State gov
ernments? Senator Overman's
amendment will raise ten or twelve
millions of dollars annually from this
source which at present contributes
a $i per head tax, barely enough to
support the immigration service.
ljHMt year there was a deficit of two
and one-half millions in the immigra
tion fund. A $10 er head tax on the
nteamsh.jp companies which must be
making very large profits, judging
from the continual building of new
veasels, would provide against such
a deficit, tend to equalize uteerage
rates to thin country, so that we
would not be sought as the cheapent
country to get to, and thin would
tend to give us a letter class of im
migrants, the postesaora 'of Mine
money and willing to pay $10 to gt
into the finext country on earth."
