BATES TOO LOW.
Should Magazines Pay a Higher
Rate? The Effect on
A question which now occupies lead
ing interest in the publishing world is
the proposal of President Taft that
amendment be made of the postal reg
ulations covering second class mail
matter. A complete investigation of
the subject will be made by the house
committee on postofficcs and post
roads. A dispatch from Washington to
the New York Herald says:
If second class mail matter, which
includes magazines, were to be cred
ited with the profit from all other do
mestic mail it would still show a loss
of 13,000,000.. This is nearly one-half
the entire postal deficit for last year.
When tho committee on postoffices
and post roads of the house takes up
tho question of a charge which will
make the magizines pay a proportion
ate share of the expense of their de
livery this information will be laid be
fore it in detail. It is admitted that
no class of public business is more
open to criticism from a business point
of view than that which has to do
with the expense and inadequate re
turn for the handling of the bulky
magazines and periodicals.
Postmaster General Hitchcock, who
brought the question to the attention
of congress, is greatly impressed with
the injustice of tho present system of
transporting magazines and periodicals
at pound rates for second class matter.
In casting about for tho key to the
deficit, which has been a feature
of tho postoffice department's business
for several years, he quickly found it
in the second class matter. Investi
gation brought to light a condition
which surprised the president and as
That a reform in the classification
which will bring the rate of 1 cent a
pound now charged for magizines
nearer the 9.23 cents a pound which
it costs the government to perform the
service is assured. This kind of maga
zine subsidy docs not appeal to mem
bers of congress. The general charac
ter of the matter which is being circu
lated by the magazines is not such as
to influence congress to continue to
pay a subsidy of more than 8 cents
a pound on matter bound in magazine
form which is from one-half to two
thirds advertising. Those who have
done magazine advertising are not
slow in the expression of tho opinion
that it is unnecessary.
Not having rushed into the problem
of making ends meet in the delivery of
the magazines, to which it has been
giving almost free carriage, the post
office department is fortified with some
information which cannot be dodged.
Here is tho result of a rapid compila
tion made by an official of the post
office department, showing how much
the government contributed last year
to the magazines:
Average cost a pound, 9.235 cents.
Average revenue a pound,1.143
Average loss a pound, 8.092 cents.
Efforts made two years ago to equal
lize tho payment for the service which
the postoffice department performs for
the magazines failed. This year the
demand is of a character which will
not bo put aside. With no more
lengthy argument than that given in
the foregoing set of figures, the argu
ment for the reclassification might be
left to stand.
The postmaster general in his recom
mendation to congress says:
"The second class rate should be ap
plied only to publications for which
there is an actual demand because of
their intrinsic value. It is not prop
erly applicable to publications sub
scribed for partly by reason of the
offer of a prize gift or premium. Many
publishers have stated that, while op
posed to the offering of premiums,
they are forced through competition
to resort to tho practice in order to
obtain subscribers. How best to rem
edy this condition is a problem the
department is earnestly endeavering
"If it were possible to correct every
such abuse and to exclude from the
second class privilege all illegitimate
publications, the newspapers and peri
odicals properly admitted as second
class matter still would constitute the
principal part of our domestic mail
and continue to absorb the profit de
rived from other classes of mail."
The postal committee of the Period
ical Publishers' association has many
facts and figures to present when the
house committee considers the subject.
Its arguments arc the result of many
It is a position of the association
that much is charged up against sec
ond class matter which in reality
should be charged to education or to
government policy. It is the custom
of the authorities to carry frco of
charge all the country weekly news
papers within the limits of the coun
ties in which they arc published. In
the report on the amount of pounds
of second class matter it is held the
paying and the nonpaying are classi
fied together. Large quantities of doc
uments on public affairs are franked
by members of congress for tho pur
pose of educating their constituents.
The publishers do not question the
wisdom of this, but they think that
all departments sending out franked
matter should have the weights charg
ed against them. Tho rural delivery,
also maintained as a matter of govern
mental policy to make the life of the
farmer less lonely, is conducted at a
loss. This item, tho delegates think,
should be debited to some department
which looks after policy or education,
or else rural deliveries should be made
Shawls and Capes of the Long Ago.
The Boston Journal discovered and
photographed for yesterday's issue an
old gentleman wearing a shawl above
his overcoat, in the good old fashion
of long ago in New England. The
wonder is where the wearer secured
his Bhawl. Perhaps he borrowed his
wife's or used one of the wraps that
are employed by travelers in crossing
the ocean. The warm woolen shawls
that men used to wear forty and more
years ago, long ago disappeared, in
many cases they supplied the place of
an overcoat. They were warm and
convenient, because they could be
readily shifted on the person to the
point of greatest need. They used at
times to be pinned around the neck
with long stickers resembling the
modern hatpin of growing propor
tions and they were deemed thoroughly
manly affairs in the ancient davs
though they would undoubtedly be
aubbeu a womanly garment by the
young folks of this generation. But
lovely woman, too has discarded the
shawl. Many a man who afterwnrd
became famous went through his col
lege course with only a shawl for his
extra winter protection. They were
economical and sufficient in their day.
Now and then, also there survives
in old families a cape of the military
type that used to be favorably re
garded as a piece of masculine ap
parel. There is nothing more erace-
ful than a long cape, which falls in
naturally graceful folds. The modern
man is permitted to have the ordinary
overcoat, or his warmer fur coat, but
the shawl and the cape have become
well-nigh forgotten adjuncts. Some
day a clever manipulator of fashions
will reintroduce the cape, and men of
taste will bless him for the act.

"Tired at Three O'clock?" "No Sir! I Use the Monarch"
i?VA.AA. A. A A A AAAA A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A A .. .. -
IF typewriters were machines run b mechanical means in
stead of human hands, you would find that, with a given anwunt
of power, a Monarch could be run at a higher maintained speed
than other typewriters.
Run by "girl power," you find that the Monarch is run at
a higher all-day average speed than other typewriters, and
without a "tapering off," from fatigue toward the day's end.
Both these truths are due to the fact that
lightens the draft, uses tower more economically. Eliminates
the waste of energy that typifies the heavy-touch machines.
This in turn means increased production per machine and de
creased cost of typewriter work ter folio.
The Monarch Light Touch and the
Monarch Rigid Carriage are exclusive
Monarch features, every other import
ant feature of the modern typewriting
machine, such as Back Space Key, Two
Color Ribbon Shift, Contained Tabula
tor, etc., etc., will also be found on the
Monarch. Let us give you a' demon
stration of Monarch Light Touch and
other Monarch advancements.
