Advertising aa a selling force for
years met the opposition of sales
men, both resident and traveling,
through the false belief that too much
credit would be given for business
increases to the publicity rather than
to the personal effort of the man on
the ground. For years salesmen felt
that advertising appropriations were
mad a up from the increased salaries
that the salesmen might havex re
ceived. Time has changed this and today
salesmen are the greatest boosters
that advertising U blessed with,
through a realization that the In
creased sales have greatly reduced
the selling cost, and manufacturers
and merchants are paying higher
salaries than ever before.
ONE KIND OF NERVE
Colonel Roosevelt denies that he
did an "illegal thing" in consenting
to the gobbling of the Tennessee. Iron
A Coal oompany by the steel trust
during the panic of 1907. He is not
sure that Governor Wilsoa would
"bare th nerve" to meet a great
national crisis aa he did.
If the thing Roosevelt did was not
"Illegal,- why did it take "nerve?"
H it was not Improper, why should
It take "nerve?"
It should not take nerve for a presi
dent of the United Bute to do his
duty in a legal way.
What Colonel Roosevelt ahould
have said U it took "a nerve" to tur
Jis most formidable rival over to the
steel trust. He then would tare
spoken the truth.
The colonel correctly assumes that
Governor Wilson has not "a nerve" of
that kind. He would not be a party to
a deal of a kind that would fasten
upon the country aa almost complete
monopoly.
THE MIDGARD SERPENT.
Richard Le Gallleae in Munssy'g
Magazine: According to the old Scan
dinavian fable of the cosmos, the
whole world is encircled in the coils
of a. vast serpent. The ancient name
for it was the Midgard serpent, axd
doubtless, for the old mythmaker, it
had another significance. Today,
however, the symbol may still hold
good of a certaia terrible and hideous
reality.
Still, as of old, the world is encir
cled in the coils of a vast serpent;
and the name of the serpent is GosW
sip. Wherever man is, there may
you hear its sibilant whisper, and its
foul spawn squirm and sting and poi
son in nests of hidden noisomeness
myriad as the spores of corruption
in a putrefying carcass, varying In
sire from some hydra-headed infamy
endangering whole nations and eveu
racf-s with its deadly breath, to the mi
croscopic wriggles that multiply, a
million a minute, in the covered cess
pools of private life.
Printed history is so Infested with
this vermin, in the form of secret
memoirs, backstairs diarists, and
boudoir eavesdroppers, that it is al
most impossible to feel sure of the
actual fact of aay history whatsoever.
The fame of great personages may
figures in the well known group of the
Laocoon, battling in vain with the
strangling coils of the sea serpent of
j Posiedon. We scarcely know what to
believe of the dead; and for the llv
iig, is It not true, as Tennyson puts
j it, that "each man walks with his
I head in a cloud of poisonous flies?"

ROMANCES OF PORCELAIN.
The Climax to Paliasy's Sixteen Years
of Misery.
The maker of porcelain and pottery
bas decidedly the most exciting and
romantic trade In the world.
The great factories of Sevres and
Dresden were founded by Bernard Pal
lssy. This man invented white enamel,
but it took biro sixteen years to make
the luventlon sixteen years of hun
ger, misery and persecution, which cul

of his life.

He was an alchemist, and one day.

was due to the kaolin with which the

the substance for lack of which Bott

BRASS WORKERS.
Theirs Is a Dangerous Trade, and They
Usually Die Young.
The present rate of mortality of the
brass foundryman is two and a half
times that of the farmer. Respiratory
diseases, particularly consumption, ac
count for the difference. Comparative
tables based on sickness and invalid
ism, if obtainable, would show even
greater differences.
Tbe age statistics In the trade are
startling. Of 1.751 brass found rymen
but seventeen over fifty years of age
were found and a bare 200 over forty
years of age. Wben asked the cause
of this officials Invariably stated:
"They got too old. They can't turn
ut the work they should every day."
But what sort of an industry la this in
which- nearly alx-seventns of its fol
lowers are too old at tbe age of forty?
It Is not thus among ironmolders, most
of whom are bale and hearty even at
sixty years and still sble to turn out
their full quota of work daily. Work
men claim they "are knocked out by
the brass fumes. "
These age statistic for Chics go
workmen are no different from tboe
Sir Thomas Oliver gives in hi boo
on "Dangerous Trades:" "Only tes.
brass workers of 1.200 casters in Bir
mingham. England, were found living
beyond sixty years. A superannuation

Boon as she was safely married her
husband laid down the law that here

So she put away the pretty skimpy
gowns of her trousseau and by threats
and bribes induced her dressmaker to
fashion the kind of skirt that would
please husband. Then, correctly
gowned according to the masculine
idea, she hied forth one day to keep
a luncheon engagement downtown
with Dear Husband.
When Dear Husband saw her com
ing he had an internal fit. He steered
her lntiT the side streets and tried to
induce her to go to a cheap restau
rant where they wouldn't meet any
body he knew. And when he put her
on the street car for home he drew a
; breath of relief.
The bride continued to wear the
skirts that husband approved of, but

one of hia voyages he had shipped a

of a reputation.
One day the skipper ordered him
aloft to examine a sail on tbe royal
yard.
"Tain't safe, cap'nT protested the

The Nonsense of Love By Edith aCrt wright.
Copyrighted. 1812. by Aasoclated Literary Bureau.
They bad lived in neighboring places
from childhood. She was high strung,
he self composed. Notwithstanding
her propensity to explode easily they
got on very well till they became en
gaged; then she began to doubt wheth
er she loved him well enough to marry
him. Though he was not an impas
sioned lover, he seemed so weH satis
fied with the prospect of possessing her
that she did not trouble herself in the
slightest about his love for her. She
was all the while thinking about her
self, ner idea of love was that it was
a condition which changed one's nature
completely, just as it has been claimed
a severe fever will give one a new
system whatever that means. There
fore she was continually looking for
this newborn something called love.
At one time she would think she felt
it. at another time doubted that she
did and still another was sure that she
did not.
Her lover did not tronble himself as
to how he felt. She and he had been
companionable for years, and he con-
sidered it very natural that they should
continue their intimacy by entering
into the bonds of matrimony. He had
been used to giving her a free rein and
as soon as they became engaged found
her much more skittish than she had
been before. Nevertheless her doubts,
as she called them, caused him some
anxiety lest she work herself up to a
condition in which she would do some
thing foolish. She might break the
engagement, at least temporarily: the
fact would become known, and their af
fairs would be discussed by others.
' What he feared at last came to pass.
One day she sent for him. and when he
appeared she said to him:
"You know. Will. I have often told
you that there was a question in my

enough to marry you. For a week I j
have been subjecting my feelings to a

: "What kind of a process is that?" he
Interrupted.
"Why. I have been looking within
myself with a view to deteruiinin;;"
"How do you look within yourself?
Do you use some kind of a glass?"
"How absurd! I have simply thought
! about you with a view to determining
j by my feellnfrs whether"
i "I see whether you want to marry
me or not."
"Just so."
"Well, go on."
His matter of fact way of receiving
; tbe Important Information she Intond
j ed to Impnrt did not please her. Never
! theless she controlled an Impulse to say
something spiteful. His coolness only
caused ber to make the announcement
more decidedly.
"After a great deal of thought and
! testing my feelings In Viirious ways I
1 have come to the conclusion that the
! Interest I have In you Is merely friend
! ship. It is not genuine love."
I "I.don't quite understand. Ton will
! aid me to do bo by telling me what
, you consider love to be I mean love
between tbe sexes."
"What I consider love to be?" she
repeated thouplitfully. "Why. love is a
spiritual condition whereby we are
drawn forcibly to another person."
"Affects the heart?"
"Certainly! It pertains exclusively
to tbe heart."
"Appeals to the soul?"
"Of course. It is between two souls."
"Affects bur sympathies?" '
"It is entirely a matter of sympathy."
"How about the liver?"
She gave him one look of concentrat
ed scorn snd swept out of the room.
He waited awhile for ber to return,
but since she did not he took up a
book and legan to read. When tbe
shock of his brutality, as he consid- j
ered It. bad worn off it occurred to ber
that she hnd Itetter return and tin In j
bl dismissal. Coming Into the room, I
retaining tbe severe took she bad worn !
when she left It. sh said: '
Tf anything was needed to convluce '
me that you and I are eutirely uDQttt-J
for each other it was tbe cllhtovery ,
that you have no sentiment whatever, j

"Yea. I was perfectly content to
continue to be friends. It was you
who began the matter of placing our
relationship on another basis."
"Wiil you kindly explain how it
could have got on to another basis ex-
I cept through me? I was not aware
that girls offered love and marriage.
"I didn't send for you to explain
things, but to make an announcement.
"Very well. Will you make another
announcement to the world that you
have broken our engagement?"
"I suppose it will be my part to do
so."
"When?"
She thought a moment before reply
ing to this, then answered by a ques
tion: "Are you In a hurry?
"Not at all. but I dont see how we
are to conduct ourselves before our
frf "1s and acquaintances in the mean
while. We can't act like an engaged
couple when we're not engaged."
"When would you prefer to have me
announce the break between us?"
"I think it had better be done at
once. We are to dine tomorrow even
ing at my aunt's, she having kindly
shown her approval of our engagement
by the Invitation. It will be not only
embarrassing to partake of ber bounty
under the circumstances, but we'll not
be treating ber fairly. Even if she
knows that we are disengaged we had
better not dine together with her as
parted lovers."
At this tbe lady was much discon
certed. She made no reply. She was
thinking hard.
"I don't see." she said presently,
"how we can be parted lovers when
there has never been any love on your
side."
1 "Well. I like that! 1 thought you
sent for me to tell me that there is none
on your side."
"Ton ace very illogical, or. rather,
you descend to sophistry. Haven't you
proved that you are Incapable of love
by speaking of it contemptuously?"
"It seems to me we are getting off
the subject. It 1s for us to determine
what we shall do about the announce
ment of the break between us."
"Well?"
"Owing to my aunt's invitation. It
seems to me that she at least should
be told at once."
"You are In a terrible hurry."
"Not at nil. I simply desire to avoid
embarrassment, besides treating my
aunt badly."
"Well, since you have ceased to love
me" ,
"Nonsense!
"Do you mean that you feel for me
that"-
"Sentimental nonsense yoj call love?
Or course I do. Lovers are nothing
but children when the lit Is on them.
But it doesn't last. Many a girl has
lost a good husband and made an old
maid of herself by examining her feel
ings as yw have done. Such feelings
are too volatile to stand such tests,
etui they are after all simply prelimi
nary. Everything is a development or
decay. ' Ixve Is sometimes suddenly
born, but it has Its babyhood, its child
hood. Its youth. If It lives through the
diseases common to these it passes
on to the main part of its life, mar
riage, which taUen altogether Is an en
tirely diilerent love from that which
In the beginning seems to be all of It.
