GOOD GOVERNMENT CLUBS ,
In Many Ways They Conduce to the Pros.
perlty of a Town.
In many towns throughout our land
there have been established clubs whose
aim is to see that the best interests of
their respective communities shall not
be sacrificed to individual or party ends.
They are always composed of the best
and most progressive men and usually
are entirely nonpolitical. From various
causes it sometimes happens that t-
worthy men are elected to nositioi : : , :
honor and trust , and they , glectful Ot
the confidence reposed in thorn , seek t
profit themselves or the clique they rcp- '
resent regardless of the duty they oivc
to their fellow citizens.
In so deplorable a state of affairs a
good government club can be of the
greatest value to the community. Its
mere existence has the effect of ptlttiltg
a damper on dishonest practices and of
keeping the management of town matters -
ters strictly on a business basis.
In the expenditure of public money
there arc various ways in which it luny
be in part diverted from the purposes
intended. Laying out parks , building
and repairing streets and sidewalks ,
sewers , public buildings and all public
improvements afford opportunities for
those who are not averse to making an
"honest" dollar out of the public treas-
ury. But with a well organized good
government club always on the alert to
see that every cent expended brings a
return in results obtained there is small
opportunity for defrauding the people.
A good government club is desirable
also because it acts as a brake on extravagance -
travagance and the unwise use of public
funds. A town is often burdened with
debt through the injudicious policy of
honest but shortsighted officials , whose
enthusiasm is greater than their judg-
ment. The knowledge that an intelligent -
gent body of men will weigh with calmi
and clear decision every act is certain
to have a most salutary effect.
It is not only the privilege but the
duty of taxpayers and those who hope
to become taxpayers to thoroughly acquaint -
quaint themselves with public affairs to
the end that unwise or dishonest men
may not bring discredit on the community -
munity and to insure that the people's
money shall be so spent as to benefit the
people and the town and confer the
greatest good on the greatest number.
ADVERTISING A TOWN.
Simple and Effective Way of Telling the
World You Arc Alive.
Business firms that are progressive in i
these days advertise their business.
Those who do not remain unknown and
eventually cease to exist. Buyers must
be informed where goods are on sale.
Sellers must look for the purchaser , and
he expects theni to.
Unquestionably the advertising of a
town or city furnishes a splendid medium -
dium for acquainting the outside world
of its individual business enterprise.
Advertising a town is a most effective i
way of calling attention to the wares of
its business men , because those who
visit the town will easily find out what
its merchants have to sell.
One of the great cities of the Atlantic
seaboard has recently formed a trades
league , and this organization is now
jealously at work calling the attention
of the country to the many advantages
their city offers. One of the latest methods -
ods adopted by the league is for each
member to have printed on its letter
heads and envelopes a list of the attractions -
tions of the city , its population , its business -
ness facilities in the way of railroads
and water transportation , its buildings ,
schools , parks , death rate , market territory -
tory and system , churches and their denominations -
nominations , industrial arts and manufactures -
factures , also tax rates , water rates
costs of rent and living.
This is a cheap and effective way of
telling the business world that their city
amounts to something , and that its residents -
dents invite strangers to come and see
and buy. This plan can be profitably
worked in any town , and in no other
way can so much be accomplished at so
small an outlay. The newspapers of the
town should also be placed in the hotels
of the cities and towns of sections of
the country that are likely in no other
way to lnlow of its advantages. Books
of the town ma be put in railway depots -
pots , hotels an public libraries of adjacent -
jacent and faraway towns and cities.
Known of All Men.
There is a class of citizens lotown to
every community whose members are
veritable human sponges , in that they
absorb everything and give nothing out
of their own volition. They are usually
rich by reason of inherited wealth and '
detestable penuriousness. The rain of
heaven falls upon them as upon the
just. They receive it , however , without
enjoyment. It is grievously aggravating
at times to see these parasites upon the
body politic seemingly prosper , but they
serve their purpose. They inculcate the
cheerful lesson that existence is not life
Their money commands a certain
amount of deference , notwithstanding
which they are covertly hated by their
neighbors. They are an encumbrance
upon the earth and occupy space that is
valuable. The soul seems to have become - I
come incrusted and the spark of life extinguished -
tinguished , yet they live on. It is pleasing -
ing to believe that in the economics of
nature their race is not 'increasing.
Money Well Expended.
If you cannot spend $1,000 a week in
advertising , spend $500. If you cannot
spend so much , spend $100 , and if your
business will not allow more than $10
to be so invested , spend that. Do not
say there is no use in advertising except !
in a large way. One might as well say
that a 5 cent package of seeds from the
florist will not grow as well as the same
seed bought in bushel quantities. Have
good seed and plant it in good soil. In
other words , write a good advertisement
and put it in a good paper.-Philadel-
phia Ledger. C
His Finger on the Public Pulse.

wits about him has his finger on the

A CHILD'S IDEA.
He stood beside my knee the while I turned
The pictured pages of the holy book.
Stood in the wisdom of his three brief years-
True wtsdom-that which ever seeks to know.
And now his eyes are wide with wondering :
A ladder set from earth to heaven ! Wherefore -
The small brow knit , then came conclusion
"I see ; so angels carry up the .old
For God to malt the harps of. " Smiling , I
Dismissed the childish fancy with a kiss.
But pondering , ns I ponder ever now
On all his words , there grows the meaning as
In darkness grows the star. The ha.ps , indeed -
In heaven are fashioned , but the withdrawal
Is delved from earth's dark breast with toil
Cleansed-tempered-it may be with bitterest
Laid at the ladder's foot , our part is done.
So shall the harks be ready , be attuned
li or sy mpttonies divine-oh , wise , sweet soul !
-Emily Jewett Royal In Washington Post.
DISCOMFORTS OF ACTING.
Lack of Accommodations In the Greenroom -
room and Behind the Scenes.
The janitor has an important hearing
on the actor's condition , which finds its
expression is his playing and possibly
on his nervous organization. Ho supplies -
plies the house and in most cases furnishes -
nishes quarters for the actors such as no
self respecting slave owner would in
the old days have condemned a slave to
For the public nothing is too good.
For the actor , on the other hand , anything -
thing is good enough. Instead of silken
draperies , he finds only a tattered curtain -
tain at the window , if indeed lie find
a curtain at all , or even a window
which it might cover. Instead of soft ,
comfortable chairs , one wooden chair
none too clean , or a chair minus a back ,
'will be the -only seat , and not infrequently -
quently , if he wishes to sit down , he
must do so on his trunk. Instead of
delicately tinted walls , he will find dirty
walls which have not been treated even
to a coat of whitewash for years. While
in the auditorium a soft carpet covers
the floor , in the actor's roont a carpet
rarely exists , or , if by chance there be
something which once was a carpet , it
is so dirty that it would be better away.
The washing appliances of the actor's
room , if they are found at all , usually
consist of a small basin with a tap of
running water. Most people would ox-
pest that , as the winter is the theatrical
season and the paints used by the actors -
tors are made with grease , hot water
would be at hand. But this is rarely
the case , and in many instances running
water in the dressing rooms is unknown.
It is not uncommon for actors to refrain
from using the basins , preferring to no-
move the "makeup" as well as possible
with vaseline and to wait until the
hotel is reached to complete this portion
of the toilet. Tin basins and buckets are
not the worst that I have seen "on the
road , " for once the water was in dirty ,
battered , old lard tins , and basins had
to be bought by our lnauager.-Forum.

to keep diaries two or three weeks ahead
of their mistresses' probable engagements -
