TROUBLES OF AN EDITOR
To be verbose is inadvisable, to pre-
varicate is foreign to good taste, to
magnify is as bad as to minimize, to
elucidate in one syllable works is te-
dious, to be sacriligious is unwar-
ranted, to assume to be a pedagogue
would be far fetched.
To make a mountain out of a mole
hill is unwise, to procrastinate we are
pone, to emulate great writers we
would aspire did we not realize our
shortcomings so acutely, to hesitate
is fatal, to cogitate produces argument,
to emancipate all from unenlighten-
ment would be an Herculean task.
To set down in simple language the
events of a rather humdrum existence
is all that is left to do even if we
could do more. It is not for posterity
that we write, but for your present en-
tertainment and satisfaction.—A. P.
Gregory in the Porter (Okla.) News.

A Siamese cook, arrested in Los

Rev. D. H. Tuttle of Smithfield, N.
C., married, a couple in 1901 and only
recently received his fee and a letter
of apology for the delay.
Rather than borrow money on his
veteran's bonus to pay his wife ali-
mony, Elmer Picle, Chicago salesman,'
accepted a six-months jail sentence.'
Vast sums spent by large manufac-
turers and merchants for advertising
are responsible for a popular supersti-
tion to the effect that advertised goods
are higher in price than they would be
if they were not advertised. The
word 'superstition" is used advisedly,
because it has been demonstrated many
times that advertising lowers, instead
of raises, prices.
Advertising campaigns are costly
and the consumer must pay for them,
but they are paid for by new business
the advertising attracts. There is noth-
ing paradoxical in a situation where
a manufacturer or merchant adds an
extensive advertising appropriation to
his budget, and then turns around and
Million-dollar advertising programs
make it possible for the manufacturer
to lower his prices by so increasing
his production that he can effect real
economies through mass production
and can spread his profit over a great-
er number of sales.
Advertising enlarges demand and
thereby makes it possible for the re-
tailer to buy stocks in larger quanti-
ties at lower cost. Moreover, goods
well advertised are more than half
sold before the customer enters the
store, which lowers sales resistance and
The price tags on advertised com-
modities are, in themselves, proof that
business can save money for its cus-
tomers by spending millions for adver-
tising.—Eau Claire (W's.) Leader.
