Have you ever heard about that business man manwho manwho manwho
who in advertising his hi particular partic l r brand of breakfast
fodder increased the circulation of the paper in which
ho advertised a hundredfold hundredfoldWell hundredfoldWell
Well it was this way His name was Wise and
he had unlimited l money to spend Ho had formerly form rly
owned a sawmill and he naturally had a largo quan ¬
tity ofeawdust of sawdust on hand It struck him that if he hecould 110could liecould
could buy a lowpriced molasses and could make an anamalgam anamalgam anamalgam
amalgam of molasses and sawdust and advertise it itas itU8 itas
as the only onlrDutritious nutritious food good alike for brain
brawn cuticle and nd hair ho could make a fortune
in a month or two twoSo twoSo t tS
So S he called in an advertising man and put him himon
on a princely salary at once once nce and said saidGo saidGo saidGo
Go ahead Advertise Sord Ust in any way you
like as long as you get et the peoples attention attentionNow attentionNow
Now the advertising man was was a genius and ho hosaid 110said hesaid
said to himself If I advertise this thing a little
in every paper people will only think a little of it
but if I b bend ndall all my energies on one paper and that thata
a very important one and advertise it there uni uniquely uniquely uniquely ¬
quely for a month or so the very oddity of the thing
will attract attention tattontionSo attentionSo
So he went w ntto to the office of the Daily Howler and andsaid andsaid andsaid
said 1 1I
I 1 want to buy every page in your paper for ad advertising advertising advertising ¬
vertising purposes purposesAnd purposes purposesAnd purposesAnd
And the business manager told him it couldnt
be doneSo done doneSo doneSo
So the advertising man showed him what a largo largocheck largocheck largecheck
check he could write and then the business manager managersaid managersaid managersaid
said it was possible pos ible and the next day Mr Man had hadevery hadevery hadevery
every page in the Daily Howler There ore was not a amurder Itmurdor amurder

And of course there was no advertisement And
that piqued piq ed curiosity
Well this thing happened next day and the next nextand nextand nextand
and then on onthe the editorial page was printed in very
small letters
Now you may Juay well believe that subscripts began
to rush in for hero was a paper that could be intro ¬

the subscribers did not know what was going w > in on in
the world except by hearsay but they had that much muchmore muchmore muchmore
more time for other things and they were conse consequently eonseq consequently ¬
quently q ently far happier and reading about no murders murdersor
or steamship trusts or Presidential possibilities they
finally came to the conclusion that the millennium millenniumwas
was at hand handBut handBut handBut
But of course the thing that made the most im imprcssion imrcssioll impression

in all the papers and the Daily Howler Howler came before
its millions of subscribers with murders and edi ¬

only too glad to learn that the world was not as asgood asgood asgood I

I know it is non6 non of my business but are you yougoing yougoing yougoing
going to let Jane grow up > with that unpleasant unpleasantvoice
Havent you read the praise of Southern womens womensvoices womensvoices
voices to some advantage advantageI T TI 1
I dont suppose that Janes speaking voice could couldever couldever couldever
ever be made really melodious although strange to tosay toaay tosay
say her singing voice vOlceis is not at all unpleasant unl > easant
But you could eliminate that strident quality
The other day I was sitting in the seaward end endof endof srid sridof
of a ferryboat when Jane came in from the slip f
The boat was full and every everyone one was talking but
Janes voice rose above all the others and almost almostevery almostevery almostevery
every one looked upIll up upIll
Ill venture to say that most of them were re reminded ruminded reminded ¬
minded of a beautiful macaw macawFor macawFor macawFor
For there is no denying that Jane is a handsome handsomeAnd handsomegirl handsomegirl I
And shes a bright girl and she says bright things
but they are all screeched at you youIf youIf youIf i
If Jane marries let her pick out a phlegmatic phlegmaticman
man unless she uses a file on that voice It would
be cruelty to animals to let her marry a sensitive sensitivesoul sensitivesoul sensitivesoul
soul say a painter or a writer because to bo shut shutup ahutup stintup
up in the same ca coo 0 day after day with the most I J
beautiful macaw imaginable would be to have ones
nerves deinsulated do J
She may be disobedient and outgrow it she

But if your daughter has an unpleasant voice
she sbewont wont outgrow it unless
