"Printers Ink," the recog nized authority on advertis ing, after a thorough Investi gation on this subject, says: "A labor paper Is a far bet ter advertising medium than an ordinary newspaper In comparison with circulation. A labor paper, for example, having 2,000 subscribers Is of more value to the business man who advertises in It thi an ordinary paper with 12,000 subscribers.'' i Jl J Jt Jl Jl Jl Jl Jl Jt Jt JUDGE TAFT AND LABOR. Judge Taft has announced his pur pose to do everything possible to put labor on an equality with capital and give labor an equality of opportunity in the negotiations between theui. This is somewhat different from the view held by Abraham Lincoln, who insisted that labor was superior to cap ital and entitled to much more consid eration. But it seems a far cry from the republicanism of Abraham Lincoln to the republicanism that triumphed in 1908.

On the evening of November 3 the Lincoln Ad Club held its regular monthly dinner, at which time Mr. Ed A. Higgins, advertising manager of the Brandeis & Sons Co. of Omaha, proprietors of the Boston Store, de livered an address on the topic, "Poa try in Advertising vs Advertising in Poetry." The Wageworker begs the indul gence of its readers for reproducing a portion of Mr. Higgins' address in 11 ;u of the usual grist of editorial matter1. The portion reproduced la personal to the editor of this little paper, but perhaps he will be par doned for the little streak of vanity which impels him to reprint it. Mr. Higgins discussed the value of poetry in advertising and mentioned several . notable incidents wherein this form of publicity was productive of commercial results. He instanced the "Spotless Town" and "Sunny Jim" advertising, but gave it as his opinion that the average "poetic ai vertlsing" was pretty poor stuff. Theii branching off from the' commercial Into the sentimental Mr. Higgins said and here's where the editor of The Wageworker blushes and bows his a knowledgements to Mr. Higgins' kind ness: 1 You have another poet in Lincoln one whose fame has traveled far. In the midst of his grind on newspaper work he stops abruptly once in a while and bursts into song. His sub jects vary from communion with na ture to philosophizing on the cant and veneer of life and in all lie shows the soul of the true poet. I refer to Will Maupin. Who can read that little gem of poetry he wrote entitled "The Baby's Shoes" without feeling his heart swell to the breaking point with love and sympathy? Mr. Maupin, too has written advertising poetry, al though he has done so unwittingly but he has hot gone to the commer cial world for his subject. : He chose the typical American home (his own) and the love that exists therein. There is no mercenary reward for advertising that, but, oh, the other t. wards that count so much IQ life l-e so rich. I can close my eyes and see him wending his way home after a hard day's work, a little brown-eyed boy and a golden-haired girl run to greet him. The door gained, a pudgy little fist grasps his features with a bpo boo for welcome. A steaming hot dinner served by the best woman in the world and then the fireplace and easy chair with "My Three." "Eyes o' Brown and Sunny Hair,. And Dickey Winktum Wee, ( Two beside my easy chair And one upon my knee; Thus the evenings come and go Till Mr. Sandman's call, Set three wee heads to nodding low And tired eyelids fall. 'This Is the way to sleepy town, Jump into bed and cuddle down.' Eyes o' Brown wants 'an'mal tales, Of bears and woolly things, While Sunny Hair most loudly wails For whirr of fairy wings. But Dickey Winktum Wee just winks His laughing eyes at me I wonder what the young man thinks Perched there upon my knee? 'So sing hey ho for Sleepy town. Jump into bed and cuddle down.' Once there was a big black bear' Two pairs of eyes grow bright, Two forms press closer to my chair As if to banish fright; 'And once there was a brave young boy,' Then-dimpled faces shine. While I with fairy lore add Joy To those sweet tots of mine. But Dickey Winktum Wee just crows Till off to Sleepytown he goes. 'Now I lay me down to sleep' The goodnight prayers are said, The fleecy clouds of slumber creep Above each little head. Eyes o' Brown and Sunny Hair, And Dinkey Winktum Wee, God guard and keep from ev'ry care My little ones for me. Safe in the shades of Sleepytown, Tucked in bed and the light turned down. . ' The greatness of our republic the wonderful achievements in the world of science, art or mislnessr the suc cess of almost every venture all rest upon the one foundation the home. If I were asked what is the secret of the giant strides made by this country I would point to the ordinary American homes as typified in Mr. Maupin's beautiful poem. The future will be just as rosy as long as homes like this exist and we owe a tribute to the mind that can so skilfully handle the spark of 1 homo love and home enthusiasm thus adver tising our true greatness to ourselves and all the world. ' Making cabinets for President Taft seems to be a popular pastime, so we take occasion to .jump into the game. Here's our frame-up: For secretary of state, James W. VanCleave; for secretaryof the Interior, Charles W. Post; for secretary of commerce anl labor, David M. Parry; for secretary of war, Harrison Gray Otis; for at torney general, Timothy J. Mahoney; for secretary of the treasury, Andrew Homestead Carnegie; for secretary of the navy, ex-Congressman Littlefield; for secretary of agriculture, Dan Keefe. Can you beat it? Of course Governor Sheldon will not, call an extra session of the legis lature. That sort of thing would be expected of a narrow-minded and spiteful man, but. George Lawson Sheldon is too big, too broadminded to take such a step. Well, Gompers may have scored a failure, but we notice that they are taking u wonderfully active interest in the workingmen, just the same And they never before showed any signs of knowing that the working man was on earth. When president Roosevelt carves the roast for those "labor leaders" he will only be advertising his smallness in not inviting Samuel Gompers to the conference. Now that the commission plan of municipal government has been en dorsed it is up to organized labor to get busy and pull out something bene ficial. Well, if Roosevelt don't slay any more lions and tigers than he did trusts, there will not be much shed ding of blood in the African Jungles, The first thing the democratic leg islature should do is to repeal the in famous garnishee law enacted by the last legislature. We wouldn't mind being commis sioner of immigration but we'd die before we'd let Theodore know it. The turning down of Gompers will be merely playing into the hanJs of organized labor's enemies. To the victors belong the spoils. This is a sign for VanCleave, Post and Parry to get busy. With that grand old friend of labor, oh ff ie Fa TImT The - Bottom 0 ir fl When the careful and economical dresser finds the place where he can combine the latest in style and the best in wear, with the lowest possible price, is it to be wondered at that he stops there and bestows his pat ronage? And is it to be wondered at that this store does the business ( when it always combines these things the best values for the least money. J There are about as many individual tastes in cloth ing as there are individual men, and the problem is to best suit the largest possible number of individual tastes. This store's buyers have solved that problem to the satisfaction of thousands of men. There is a refinement, a dignity, about the Armstrong Clothing that sets it apart and above the other kind. The "above is only in style, make, fit and wear not in the price. There is a something about our clothing "verve' it may be that. makes it a strong appeal to the neat, careful and economical dresser. "More v for the Money, and Better that's this store's motto. mm r Ml 0 Mil J Extra good values for the money in suits and overcoats from $1S to $40. This wade range makes it possible for us to suit every purse as well as every taste. The full value is in the fabric, the style and the make. OUR' BOY'S OEPARTira . fl This is really a big store in itself. It contains more goods than many clothing stores of huge pretensions. Anything and everything for the boys from 2 years old to 16. School outfitting is a strong point with us in this department. ArmstrtHfQ CI Company a Good Clothes Merchants James S. Sherman, presiding over the senate, and that other grand old friend of labor, Joseph G. Cannon, presiding over the house, it is easy to see where labor is going to get off at when congress gets busy. There is still a little too much thinking below the belt line for or ganized labor to make a winning po litical fight. The forthcoming legislature could make a ten-strike among laboring men by putting a crimp into the "loan sharks." Col. James W. VanCleave seems to be the possessor of a very fine hand made and non-union made vindication. Lincoln, Nebraska, continues to be the postofflce of the greatest citizen of this republic. has some industrial poetry for pri vate recitation, not for public print ing. . , . Gee, but we're proud of Lincoln, Havelock and Lancaster county. The next time we'll test our para chute before going up. . labor's Bull Run will yet result in Labor's Appomatox. And now altogether for a labor tem ple in Lincoln. The editor of this little newspaper ' That was organized labor's flVst real political battle, and a battle lost does not mean a war lost. Politics?

This was done because the Flints were poaching on the preserves of the glass blowers.. " - .
