Oh No! "Advertising Doesn't Pay."
Under the heading "Advertising
Doesn't Pay," Batten's Wedge prints
the following sprightly reductio ad
"Of course not the vast majority
of manufacturers in nearly all lines
are agreed that it doesn't pay.
"As an instance, there are twelve
hundred and fifty soap manufacturers
in the United States. The vast ma
jority of them evidently think that ad
vertising can't pay and yet we have
Proctor & Gamble, Fels, Col-gate,
Williams, Pears, Larkin, and a few
more but what are they out of
twelve hundred and fifty?
"There are thirteen hundred and
seventy-five mattress manufactur

"Four hundred biscuit and cracker
bakers. How many can you name?
Two, perhaps three?
Twenty-six hundred and forty one

advertisers and it's rumored that
these are the most prosperous.

Seven hundred and seventy-five paint
manufacturers. Natinoal Lead Com
pany, Sherwin Willaims Compnay,
Carter White Lead how many more
can you name offhand?
We could go on through the entire
list. Our point is, the vast majority
are against advertising, are opposed
to it, because they believe that it
doesn't pay and persistently overlook
the fact that in nearly all lines the
biggest, strongest, most prosperous
competitors are those who do the most
"Advertising is for the big mer
chant and big manufacturer. It will
not do much for the small man, for
the one who has to be shown. The
big man sees.
"Wanamaker, and Field, and the
Studebakers, the Procters, the Fels,
and the almost innumerable hosts of
"big" ones, were big merchants and
manufacturers even when their busi
nesses were small and advertising
played its part in the development of
these men and the business structures
that they have built. More of these
will come, are coming; many are here

as good for cooking as a fresh egg.

The principal of construction in the Underwood was
found first in the Underwood, and every typewriter seeking
business in the same field with the Underwood which
has been put on the market since the advent of the Under
wood, has been an imitation of, and in general appearance
like, the Underwood.
The last "Blind" advocates of importance have now
fallen into line, and there is not to-day a single "blind
writing" typewriter actively on this market. Recall all
the arguments you have heard in past years by Underwood
opposition, and you will realize what an advance agent of

"The Machine Yon Will Eventually Buy"
are rather deceptive,
and well flavored, and
most stock will eat such greedily and
in preference to the old, but in this
they do not show the discernment
which is characteristic of their usual
mode of giving preference to the best,
as new foods are neither so nutric
ious nor as healthful as those fully
matured and in good condition.
It has been fully proved beyond all
dispute that new hay and new oats
are very bad for the wind of horses
and hardly anymore serious charge
could be laid at their door, as an im
perfect winded horse is a nuisance.
This fact in itself should be ample to
prohibit the use of new foods for
horses, but some excuse will no doubt
be offered for their use. The supply
of old hay may have run out and none
but the new may be available. The
old may be a little off color and the
new so tempting and sweet, but the
apologies are poor so long as there is
danger of the horses suffering and it
will pay all who have none but new
hay to buy a quantity of old for pre
sent use and leave the new alone for
New hay does not harm the wind of
cattle, but it always has a greater
tendency to sour than the old. New
oats are not so good as old ones. They
fail to give such good results as old
ones and are wanting in the stability
of matured grain. This also applies
to barley and wheat.
It is known that both grain and
hay sweat a great deal while matur
ing, mere is more or less warmth in
association with this process and both
the sweating and heating, or ferment
ing, aids in maturing. They add fla
vor and this increases digestibility.
Neither hay nor grain of any de
scription ought to le used for feeding
for six weeks after being harvested.
There is a value about foods treat
ed in the way suggested that is quite
absent from newly harvested stuffs,
and no stretch of imagination is
needed to grasp the fact that only
fully matured foods can be satisfact

Bixby Recalls Old Days.
Everybody in Columbus, and nearly
everybody in Platte county knows
"Doc" Bixby, the poet, philosopher
and sage of the State Journal, and
when he breaks forth with'something
that smacks of a reminiscence of the
good old days when he was in Colnm
bus, everybody sits up and takes no
tice. Bix had one of these spells one
daylast week, and the following morn
ing the Journal came out with the fol
lowing article of early Platte county
history, which will be interesting to
To the Democrats of Nebraska
Dear Democrats: Bud Newman's
fealty to the party was never ques
tioned. The records of Platte county
will show that he never failed to cast
a ballot on election day, and that he
went early to avoid the rush, and that
he didn't have to be sent for and
urged to do his duty will be verified
by those who livedl in the same pre
cinct during the years he was a resi
dent of the county aforesaid.
Bud was a democrat. Why he was
a democrat may never be known. It
might have been because of his peculi
ar environment. Perhaps he absorbed
it from the atmosphere, perhaps the
persuasive eloquence of August Boetch
er and Judge Hensley for the city, and
Packy Doody for the suburbs brought
conviction to his distracted soul.
As to that, he never said: possibly he
didn't know . What he was, is the
important fact in discussion. Why
is of minor significance.
Under all conditions Bud Newman
stood for harmony. If he looked for
party wounds, it was that he might
heal them. If Dan. Kavanaugh
threatened to pluck the vitals from
the bosom of the chairman of the Sher
man township delegation. Bud inter
posed a quiet objection, and used his
best offices to create better instead of
a bitter, feeling between the contend

Hicks, and when it came to a direct
conflict between the evidence of his
own senses and and the predictions of
the St. Louis forecaster he rendered
his decission in favor of the prophet

it was necessary to reverse all known
rules of ratiocioation.
In some ways the World-Herald

only crime against the party is that

By the action of the democrats of
Douglas county, the letter of Mike
Harrington, and the editorial in the
World-Heald of Wednesday, I judge
there is but one basis upon which the
party can harmonize and move for
ward to glorious victory. It must
frown upon the forms of organized
greed that cannot be touched with ta
ten-foot pole, and let the other fellows
alone. It must plant itself against
plutocracy and hollerlikell. Harmony
upon this broad and patriotic basis
will mean success for the party and
unmeasured power and plunder for
the patriots who have said so much and
sacrificed little to keep it alive.
