GUARDING THE KING.
Old Enfliah Mthds Whir th Man
arch Was Taksn Sick.
The law raises peculiar safeguards
round the person of the English sov
ereign in case of sickness. They are
mere survivals in the present settled
order of government, but a't one time
the opportunity which the king's in
capacity afforded aspirants to the
Utroue or treason makers to shorten
his days at a minimum of risk of de
tection made the precautions reason
able. "If the king be taken sick," says
Coke in his "Institutes," "there ought
to be a warrant issue from the privy
council, addressed to certain physi
cians and surgeons, authorizing them
to administer to the royal patient po
tioues, syrupos, laxltavas, medicinas,
etc. Still, none of these should be giv
en except by consent and advice of
the council, and they ought to set
down in writing everything done and
administered, and they should com
pound all drugs themselves and not in
trust their preparation to any apothe
cary." Coke wrote thus of precedent in the
year 1C10, and today the law is praou
cally as he found it, although at the
present time in practice the privy coun
cil simply hears reports of the progress
of the king's malady and leaves actual
treatment entirely to the physicians in
direct charge of the case Exchange.
GIANT TREES OF JAMAICA.
Shad Manas of Beautiful
Cotton Evary Year.
The silk cotton trees of Jamaica are
one of the most striking natural fea
tures of this beautiful island, and vis
itors express much curiosity concern
ing them. The nbef of the cotton is
too short for textile uses, but its qual
ity is delicate and hue.
The trees are most interesting in
structure. They reach a height of 200
or 300 feet. It is the largest tree on
the island, and the branches often over
hang more than an acre of ground.
Some of them are centuries old, dat
ing back to the landing of the Span
iards. They have withstood the trop
ical winds of the region through the
adaptatiou of their structure. The
leaves are very few, and there are
heavy masses of roots.
This giant tree flowers ouce a year.
It bears a number of pods much the
size and shape of a cucumber. These
pods dry and burst, and out floats the
beautiful cream colored silk cotton,
covering the ground and sailing In the
air for some distance. The seeds, of
course, are borne on the silky lila
meuts. This cotton Is used at present
only for pillows. Its use as guueotton
has been spoken of.
The trees are often felled by the na
tive Jamaicans and hewn into canoes,
which last for generations. Christian

worldly matter and made a mistake
In the reading of the Scriptural les

where he should have read the first.
As he neared the end of his reading
the parson saw that he was in error.
He saw that his congregation knew
he was in error. How, then, to con

Persistent Advertising Brings Busi
If the money that is spent every
year by "occasional" advertisers were
added up it would be found to amount
to a large sum. By occasional ' ' ad
vertising 1 mean he using of space at
irregular periods in your newspaper.
Local publicity is often done in this
way under the excuse of helping the
paper, but the real reason, if the ad
vertiser could be got to admit it, is
that he is half hearted about the mat
ter. He partly looks upon aaverusing
as a luxury anyhow, and so curtails
his expenditure on it to the lowest
Although the retailer may regard ad
vertising as a luxury, it yet seems to
be a dream on his part that one day
he will make some real succes and a
handsome fortune through advertis
ing. Indeed, down deep in all retail
ers' hearts is a feeling that money
can iositively be made through adver
tising. They know that huge for
tunes have been made and are being
piled up by retail merchants with the
aid of this limitless force, and they
have secret hopes that one day they
may also strike the royal road to suc
cess. II tney uui Knew it uiui ruau
lies straight and plain before every
retailer in the country if he would
only open his eyes to see it.
John Wanarnaker, the great New
York and Philadelphia retail merch
ant, on one occasion said: "Advertis
ing doesn't jerk; it pulls." It be
gins very gently at first, but the pull
is steady. It is likened to a team
pulling a heavy load. A thousand
spasmodic, jerky pulls will not budge
the load, while one-half the force in
a steady effort will start and keep it
Here is the solution in a nut shell
steadv effort. The mercehant who
uses newspej)er space "occasionally"
is simply wasting his efforts. It is
the steady pounding and pounding
again that makes a success in adver
tising as is in everything else. All
advertising is good in proportionate
degree to how it is done, and even oc
casional advertising has some value,
but to be successful to the point of
permanently increasing your bank ac
count, it must be done persistently
What would you say about a clerk
in your store who waited on your
customers for a day or two and then
sat down to rest for a few more days,
leaving the customers to attend to
themselves? You know how long
your business would last under such
conditions. It is the same with news
paper advertising. Publicity in your
newspaper is simply salesmanship on
paper, and the same rules apply to
salesmanship in your store. Con
tinual effort and eternal polishing up
of ideas and methods are necessary to
make success either as a personal sales
man in your store or as a salesman
in your newspaper.
You advertise to sell your goods and
keep your name in front of the peo
ple. It is only reasonable to suppose
that you will be better able to do this
with persistent effort than with spas
mmlic ntt.. mnts. If vou were to tell
a man or woman daily about the qual
ity of your wares and prices you would
produce more effect than ifyouwereto
talk to him at uncerain intervals.
The question of changing the sales
manship or "copy" in vour advertis
ing pace is an important one. It acts
this way. Suppose you had a pile of
some special goods for sale. Suppose
you had determined to sell some of
these goods to some particular custom
er. After you had asked that custo
mer to buy those goods would you, the
next time you, approached her, use
exactly the same language and argu
muntv You know vou would not.
You would hunt up new ideas to at
tract her attention, new ways of con
vincing her and new methods to get her
to buy, You must apply the same
principles to your advertising. You
must be continually hunting up ideas,
new arguments and new ways of at
tracting and holding attention. Sales
manship in newspaper space is just
the same as salesmanship behind your
The trouble the ordinary storekeep
er is up-against is securing this sales
manship on paper I have outlined.
He can purchase advertising space
readily enough and so long as he buys
enough space for long enough period
to make successful display he has
done all that the successful merchant
can do in that respect. But when it
comes to filling the space the ques
tion assumes a different shape.
Advertisement construction is a pro
fession like medicine or law. When
you are sick you go to a physician.
When your business wants toning up,
why should you not go to a business
doctor? an advertising expert?
There are on the market a number of
what are called Syndicate Advertising
Services. These can be obtained for
as low as one dollar per week. They
give you precisely the same service as
given to department stores and nation
al advertisers by first-class individual
advertising managers. These servi
ces are usually supplied with a series
of fifty-two advertisments, one for
each week in the year, together with
fifty-two copperplate cuts of high
grade illustrations drawn by high sal
aried artists. The advertisements
are constructed by writers of national
reputation and with great experience,
men who have made success for thou
sands of other retailers in the same
position as yourself. The low price
charged for these advertisements is
onlytmade possible because of thou
sands of the same advertisement that
are sold to different merchants
throughout the country. One only
merchant in each town is allowed to
use the service for his own trade.
Patriculars of the best of these
syndicated advertising services may
be had from the editor of this journal,
and 1 earnestly advise you, as an up-to-
date merchant, to get them at once.
"The early bird catches the worm"
is a true saying and it is now here
better exemplified than in this case:
the retailer who uses a service of this
kind here now will start himself on a
near cut to independence and fortune.

hurtiness in the same field with the Underwood which
has been put on the market since the advent of the Under

The last "Blind" advocates of importance have now
fallen into line, and there is not to-day a single "blind
