Bad Advertising. 1 five yeara ago, tbta month more than 400,000 United State, soldler- ueean the drive on the Argonne. Seventeen thoueand wore killed, many wonnded, In fighting that stretched along a torty-mlle Croat 8oon after that the war waa over. Five yeara ago, and the aoldlera, to whom excited and flrlghtened big pooketboeks promised tbe moon and Ht_rn, have not yet received a penny of the pitifully small bonus that re- preaenta the dwindling down of all the gratitude. There'*, a plan to simplify tha coal problem. Railroads won't like It- no more coal to carry. Middlemen will detest It. The Idea Is change the coal Into electric current at the mine. Electricity carries itself over the wirea. wltb no bumping of freight care, no flat wheels, no loading and unloading. Instead of buying coal, changing it Into power and heat five hundred or a thousand miles from the mine, skilled labor at tbe mines would change coal into electricity to be used for beat, light, power, wherever wanted. That will come in time. it ought to come now. Thanks to Mr. Eastman, of Rochester, and tbe wide, wide world, this country sees efficient and thorough development of musical talent. To help a nation ln music is to help It intellectually. Music and Intellect are sisters. Music arouses tho brain, refreshes and stimulates It, aa nothing elae can do. Music la the only stimulant that haa no "next day" of let down and reaction- Mr. Eastman's school of music in tbe University of Rochester brings to tha city and to tha students of music the bast musicians of tba world, and provides musical genius with a magnificent setting In a beautiful opera bouse, given to the city by Mr. Eastman and paying financial profit to no one. Young people from all over tbe United flutes win scholarships that give them free .taarhHag -ond <IMM a year for living expensea. Thua, one man's succesa finds expression In a way Uiat benefit* an entire nation. The Oovernment has sold tha heart of Muscle Shoals plant to a corporation, and that ends Henry Ford's attempt, to get the great water power. It ends also tbe possibility of his carrying out the promise to give the farmers cheap fertiliser and It gives Ford and the farmer* permanent pos- sseaslon of a very good complaint—if they ever want to use It In politics. The Rear. Arthur Wilde, Sweden- borglan, says tbe Garden of Eden waa a state of mind. So is everything else, including happiness and misery. Eplctetus, deformed, and a slave, waa happy. Croesus, rolling In sold, mU seeable, worried, Ntothln* A* real. All wealth, gold, diamonds, the JBn and stars, our own bodies, represent nothing more solid than electrons and orotons. made of negative and positive eleotctalty, locked up In atoms that vary In construction, according to the element composed. The elements are interchangeable. Matter bas no existence, mlad and its states are tbe only real things, the real universe. There Is no big, no little, no beginning, no end. In fact, it's all quite confusing. Mussolini decides to sell advertising space on postage stomps. H will not be good publicity. Advertising on street car transfers, tried, is found not worth while. Advertising on postage stamps will' be worth even laaa. Th§ person putting on tba stomp won't look at, much leu -Had, tba advertising. AdMtttaing .ia valuable only when put wbare people want to see It, when tbey have leisure to read it Tba boat advertising-la to newspapers. Repetition. Is reputation.

Tbe Carnarvon brother aald, whan his brother opened the. tomb, "Sonae- tnlng dreadful will surely happen to our family."

The meeting will be held ut the borne of Henry Miller ou Spring street. Te following Is un extract from the Monthly Business Review published by the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland. Just what effect the recent Japanese disaster wlll hnve on American business Is a questloti which bas been uppermost In the minds of many of us during the past few weeks. Japan has started to rebuild. The ashes of the greut llres which followed the I quakes hud scarcely cooled before . plans were under way to bring a new and more up-to-date Japan out of the ! ruins: a Japan fore In keeping with IhS progressive spirit of her people. ' Such a comeback requires pluck und | courage und the .lupunese are showing that they have these qualities. While the loss oT life and property j was staggering, suffering was undoubtedly minimized hy th prompt uctlon Of relife agencies. The outside world necessarily has i been viewing the situation through' smoked glass but these are beginning to cleer. Wild rumors are being re- placod by conservative estimates. The Government according to recent advices from Tokio, la taking steps to provide the funds necessary for a great reconstruction campaign through local and foreign loans. While Insurance compaines and their underwriters have, of course, suffered losses. Japan's financial syatem as s whole remains firm and It is quite generally conceded that her credit Is unimpaired. Reconstruction Is necessary as a result of this disaster. The United Stutes hus many of the things Japan needs. Just how much of the calamity- made demand will come this way is still a problem. There will of course he a limited Immediate demand for materials like steel, nails, wire, pipe, und rooting to house the multitudes thut huve suddenly been left without protection from the elements ut a seuson ot the year when colder weather is on the wuy. The permanent replacement of properties destroyed, however, will be done largely upon credit und the buyers of materials will naturally look for the market that cun give them what they want. Business over here continues on a sound basis. Aa the basis for aound business Is the purchasing power of the people and as the purchasing power Is produced by a condition of general employment, the following records which have been established in Industry during the lust few months, as cited by Julius H. Barnes, President of the! Chamber of Commerce of the United ■ States, furnish several good reasons for this prucMcully unilistruhed business routine: 1. Lurgest pig iron prodcutlon. Largest cotton consumption. Largest steel ingot production. Lurgest crude oil production. Lurgest automobile ui*l truck production. G. Lurgest residential construction. 7. Largest production of locomotives. 8. Lurgest volume of mail order sales. 9. Largest volume of retail sales. 10. Largest volume of railroad car loadings. To thla we might add that uccordlng to the September crop forecasts of the Department ot Agriculture, the com crop this yeur wlll be 185,074,000 bushels above 1922 estimate; the oats crop will be 110.251,000 bushels hglh- er; and there wlll be 1,026.000 more bales of cotton. The estimate of the wheat crop shows a decline being placed at about 72,800,000 bushels less than last year. Back of all thla Is the sound financial condition of the country. After ull, the successful development of modem industry and commerce ia possible only when ull the fundamental factors ln the situation perform their respective parts In the work of the whole. It is obvious tbat no matter whut the consumer's demand for goods may be, If through lack of transportation facilities tbe goods cannot be delivered to him, or ANNA ROBERTSON WINS EIRST PRIZE IN CONTEST LOCAL GIRL SUPPLIES MISSING WORD CORRECTLY 19 TIME8 OUT OF 24—RUTH LADRICH AND MRS.
