Th Ad Men.
Omaha is to hare as Its guests this
week a bbdy of men who hare a most
unique relation to the social organiza
tion. Tbo Associated Advertising
Clubs of America represent fn a pecu
liar way the development of modern
business method! aa evolution that
s so strange ss to be slmost revolu
tion. The organisation is the concrete
expression of the keynote to surceas in
any enterprise. "Publicity." Without
publicity of a favorable sort no enter
prise can attain Its fullest develop
ment, and this Is the "ad man's" field.
His function is to provide tbat pub
licity. He both buys and sells space;
he looks into the business of a custo
mer with the professional acumen of a
skilled specialist, determines what Is
needed and then With printer's ink he
starts a stream of gold flowing into the
coffers of the msn who employs him.
It sounds simple enough, but the ad
man has demonstrated his case often
enough to be entitled to his place, for
his results are possible only when his
printer's ink is mixed with brains.
To argue the value of advertising is
to waste time. Publicity is as neces
sary to success in modern business as
is a building to house the machinery
of the factory or the stock of the store.
To give a list of the Immense fortunes
that have been raised on a foundation
of Judicious advertising would be to
call a long roll of names familiar to
all; many of these names still bring
lng large sums to the heirs of their
owners by reason of a value due solely
to note gained through advertising,
And the ad men are busy all the time,
building up more of these names, ad
ding to the value of those already es
tablished and doing the one great act
finally essential to business success
bringing producer and consumer to
These men are keen, discerning and
endowed with the faculty of analytical
discrimination. It, is this fact that
doubles the pleasure of entertaining
them, for Omaha is ripe for Just that
sort of Inspection. The ad men are
welcome, and they will have no occa
sion to complain of Omaha hospitality,
should combine to uproot this evil, to
countersct the grossly erroneous no
tions and exalt government- andU the
men charged with the grave responsi
bility of carrying It on. This will
make for a better and saner clt lieu
ship and it will displace a tremendous
amount of ignorauce with the truth.
Those increased imports show that
we still love luxuries and have the ble form, symmetrical, fair
Billion for Building.
Official statistics show that 128
cities in the United States Invested
1, 000, 000, 000 in new buildings dur
ing the year 1909, which might fairly
be placed over against the billion
which congress found it necessary to
appropriate to meet the demands of
this great grpwlng' nation. Authorities
predict that 1810 will even surpass
the building record of 1909.
When we take these facts and
figures, together with the enormous
increases all over the country In bank
clearings, we have two sure indexes
to business that show most astounding
expansion. In 1907 we were told by
some men who chose to make the
most they could out of that little
money stringency that we would
not recover from the effects of that
panic for many years,; but now we
must conclude that those men did not

New York is going on in some form

it does not exist to a large extent In
cities out here where nature is able

community, and that where public
sentiment favors license the most
strenuous effort to enforce dryness is
bound tp miscarry and invite law vio

munities divide on party lines on the
liquor question, and it is recognition
of this fact that leads the temperance
and anti-saloon organizations to prose
cute their work, not in any one. polit
ical party, but irrespective of parties.
If county option is really a local is
sue and not a party issue, no good
reason exists for injecting it into the
psrty platforms and attempting to
make its aupport or opposition a test
of fealty to political parties built upon
principles of government and devoted

of such a church must be a man, a
full-rounded man, not merely a
preacher or theologian; a scholar and
affable gentleman, but a man of busi
ness and executive ability, capable of
handling such a work as would nat
urally fall to the lot of a man in such
a position. Such a situation would

The Manly Art.
Apropos of the recent prize fight,
the signed editorial In the Outlook by
Theodore Roosevelt praising the manly
art of boxing, and at the same time land the demand for service would be
condemning the brutality of the prize mucn greater, no doubt, than the
minlstratlve power and above all it
would demand a man of strong, virile
character, who could meet and deal
with all sorts of men and conditions.
Of course ministers whose trend Is
toward the format work of the pulpit,
mould not do for this kind of a field
fight, throws another sidelight on a I
much discussed topic.
Colonel Roosevelt tells how he, him-
to the execution of broad policies for slf' ,n D,B earIy d,yB derlved mucn

running on the republican ticket in Ne
braska this fall, for example, wants
the votes of every republican whether
he believes In county option or opposes
It, and as many other votes as be can
legitimately get. Any action calcu
lated to drive away a large body of re
publican voters disposed to stay with
the ticket, 1bv not only uncalled for, but
bad politics. Whether we get county
option or not from' the coming legisla
ture depends entirely on the action of
the people in selecting law-makers for
their respective legislative districts
in other words, it must In any event be
fought out as a local issue.
So far as Nebraska republicans are
concerned it may be well for them-to
remember that the only time the party
allowed itself to become entangled In
the liquor question it suffered its first
serious defeat that lost it control of
the state government In which It had
been entrenched for more than twenty
not always with success over his op

The former president confesses not

boxers and heroes of the prize ring;
but hits the bull's-eye' when he decries
the sordid and .brutal conditions that
have come to surround these pugilistic
bouts with prize money aggregating
hundreds of - thousands of dollars
divided almost equally between winner
and loser, and the additional tempts
tlon offered by the prospect of motion
picture royalties.
The manly art as practiced by pro

That the large and constantly growing
use of automobiles should ..ave resulted -In
higher prices for rubber shoes, and rubber
goods in general, because or the immense
quantity of rubber used ln tires, laf not
surprising. Tbe reasoning from cause to
effect here Is along evident lines.
It Is somewhat astonishing to learn, how
ever, that because ol die general use 01
automobiles, and the outdoor life neces-
rlly Incident thereto, the silk hat Indus
try haa been seriously orrppled and lan
guishes as never before. This Is a fact,
nevertheless. If -we may take the word of
the .hat manufacturers of England, and
they ought to know.
It would seem, therefore, that our old
friends, the common people, get It ln the
same old place, while the plutocratlo con
tinuant reaps such measure of good as
comes from the situation In the silk hat
aspect of it. The common people must
have overahoesaand liunga, and they must,
because of the gay and festive automobile,
pay more for them. The plutocrat, because
of this same automobile, gets his silk hat
cheaper than ever before; albeit he does
not need one so u.ten as of yore.
It really would seem that this old rule
might work the other way around now and
then, but It never does. Whatever happens
because of something else Invariably ap
pears to operate to the benefit of those
who have more than they know what to do
with already. If silk hats doubled in price,
the common people would feel .the effects
of It nut at all, but ' with rubber shoes
doubling In prle the shoes pinch In the
ame old place, of course.
However, the common people are wptlmls-
tlo, and approximately happy. The Lord
generally tempers the wind to tne shorn
lamb after some sort of fashion, and He
must love tbe common people, for, as Mr.
Lincoln said. He made so many of tbem.
