Do you know what a matrimc^
bureau is for? Its purpose is tj help
every fellow who is interested in
matrimony to get in touch with oth
ers who are likewise interested.
Are you interested in the prosperity
of your community as well as your
own? Then get out on the common
highway and look around. Take up
your newspaper and see whose ad
vertisement is next to yours this
week. Its the milliner's is it and
you are inteierted in groceries? Per
^iaps she has no paticilir fancy for
your jwares either, yet you both a:e
interested in advertising. You each
care to advance your prosperity and
too see your town grow. No matter
whether you are a hardware mar,
telephone man or banker you want
to be known as an A1 business man
standing in the progressive line and
shoving toward the front. You like
to know what other business men are
doing—you must know to keep up
By no other mean can you know
what is going on among men of your
profession as well as those of all ot
her callings save by the printing
industries. You allow your business
to drop ouf of and so far as the gen
eral public is concerned you cease to
exist. You see a big advertisemens
in the newspaper and you say, ' that
fellow must have a lot of money to
afford such a big ad" but you have
the wrong view point. He has not
been afraid to call attention of the
public to his business, therefore his
success has increased. Invariably
your intelligent or careless use of
the agencies of advertising arid print
ing means the difference between the
your success or failure, for the print
ing and publishing industry is the
barometer, not only for your per-
sonal success but it is the barometer
o£ the commercial prosperity of

The modern woman is sometimes
accused of being unladylike because
of the lowness q£ the neck cf her
dr«ss—the variable of the length of
her waist—and the shortness of h< r
skirt. I sav she is sometimes so
accused,but I m an she is oftentimes
Sometime my sister may wear a
low neck dress and some time sle
nay w?ar one witlt a high neck—
s n etime she may wear a short skirt
and sometime she may wear a long
one. In either event is it any of my
p ticular business?
When I want to wear galases in-
st< ad of a belt do I go and ask my
s'stfT—my wife—my mother? When
I wish to wear a cuff to my trousers
and thus expose an inch or two of
my lower extermeties. do I turn on
t ie pas—pert myself on high—rush
out on the street and as the first 25
women I rftt et if they think my np-
peir nee wculd thus be improved? If
I did thus ana so—you would prob-
bly think if you did net ask—what
s wrong with the riamphool?
Don't yr u imagine the women us-
ed to feel tine dragging a dress tail
around that was two or three ft et
too long?) No, I mean two rr
three feet longer than the distance
from her waist to her feet? Was
the lady who thus drissed any more
lady than the woman of today?
Who is it that criticses the short
skirt? The men—slimy, evil mind-
ed men—men whose training and ed-
ucation have not tauyl.t them that
evil exists in the n^inds of inaivid-
uals as well as in conditions that ex-
ist or may arise.
will the v mien of the civilized world
lis*.tn tc the railing of such a class
o men, or for that mil ter, any oi
their kin? The intelligent men of
the twentieth cen'ury have confiden-
e in the pure blooming womanhood
of today to believe thai manhood's
honor will continue to be made more
noble by woman's presence.
The slaves of animaldo'" may
howl but the Kings of civilization
will ever cheer h ron, will ever pro-
tect her purity.
