During four months we declined Omaha
advertisement to give local merchants
a chance to do business with us. We
presented our proposition to them re
peatedly. In four months we did $1.50
worth of advertising for a local shoe
trade. A little arithmetic wiil show
the folly of those who complain. In
two weeks we have done $50.00 worth
of advertising for Omaha firms, that
would be $100.00 per month and four
months would be $400. We have
sacrificed $400 already to give local
merchants a chance to take space.

! Have Your Clothes
A broad, undeveloped field of mu
tual benefit and profit is open to
the merchants and newspaper pub
lishers of small towns throughout
the country. Through co-opeiation
in buying and selling advertising
space and in the planning and writ
ing of advertisments, the publisher
can render great assistance to the
merchant and the merchant in turn
reciprocate by "making good"
when prospective buyers are drawn
to his store.
The publisher can show the mer
chant how to make the best use of
the space he has bought by helping
him write clear, convincing copy
and then displaying it to the great
est advantage. Iiy thus assisting
the merchant and insisting that
only the truth be told in the adver
tisement he increases the attractive
ness and dependability of his paper.
This cannot but redound to the cre
dit of the publisher und make itself
felt in a steady patronage, a dual
patronage of publisher and mer
chant. 15ut the merchant must be sure
to do his part in the mutual uplift
or it will necessarily be only half
hearted. If the merchant docs not
"make good," then both himself
and the publisher are put in a bad
light. -American Press.
The editor and manager of the News
Herald are ready to do their part to
make the space of every merchant, who
purchases advertising space in this
miner tret his money's worth. That is
our business policy and we stand ready
to "make good."
TAFT INTERESTED IN TARIFF.
President Taft contemplates taking a
hand in the tarilY question before it is
finished. Unless congress makes a
just and fair tarilF law it is more than
probable that the President will veto it
andvmake specific recommendations, to
congress in behalf of the common peo
ple. He is fortifying himself for pro
per consideration of the tariff bill when
it reaches him.with the interest of the
consumers in view. He is seeking his
information outside of Congressional
sources and evidently has no intention
of relying on the Aldrich-Payne figures
He has directed the treasury depart
ment to compile for him the approxi
mal,e amount of duties on such article
as men's and women's clothing, stover,
furniture, china, tinware, hams and
bacon, certain vegatables, sugar, coal,
salt and other articles of common use
in every househould.
Mr. Taft i3 seeking to inform himself
whether proper reductions have been
made upon articles in the household of
every ultimate consumer. He has the
treasury experts to tell him the duty
paid (l)underthe Dingley law (2)under
the Payne bill (3) under the Senate bill,
and has asked that the duty be comput
ed upon the common retail prices of
the articles. For example, how much
duty does a pair of $2 shoes pay?
The figures that have been complied
show that the common charge Is true
that the poor pay a larger proportion
of the tariff tax than the rich. A $15
suit of clothing pays a duty of 71 per
cent while a $40 suit pays at the rate
of (54 per cent. The import tax on a
$15 rug is 62 per cent; on a tapestry
rug costing $30, the rate of duty is only
54 per cent The same holds true of

the city is in business for itself. In
my home city we decided to go into
