modifications the resolutions were
adopted and are as follow*:

Advertise Your Business.
People must know what a man lias to
sell before they will go to buy. I f it is
what tl'.ey want and the price suits
them they will buy it. But they will
not know what a merchant has to sell,
or the price, unless lie publishes it to
the world. Let a man try to sell a
tiling and and not handbill the sale,
The same principle to some extent
holds good in a mercantile business.
The street auctioneer draw s his crowd
by advertising his goods, the merchant
rmiivtne same. lie draws his customers
in that way. The patent medicine man
by his almanac sells his goods by let>
t.ng the public know what it is, the
price and what it will do. The great
secret of a man's success in life is wqat
the people know of him. Henry Clay
slid it was not what a man knew or did,
but what the people tbeiight lie knew or
did. The people move by thought, act
by reason, and reason by comparison.
Mow can they compare without some-
thing to compare; when goods are ad-
vertised people can compare quality and
price. Show them goods. Call them

The Necessity of Irrigation.
A circular from the Publication Com
luitte of the International Irrigation
Congresi, Los Angeles, October 10th to
15th, 18U3, calls attention to the extra-
ordinary value of irrigation to all lands
which are now tilled under a deficient
rainfall. The recent drought reports
from western Kansas bring into strong
contrast the uniform success of farming
which is met with in California, Utah,
Tbe irrigation congress which meets
in Los Angeles, Oet. 10th to 15th, will
a notable gathering of prominent irrlga
tore, engineers and bond investors, and
very much valuable information to own-
ers of arid lands will result from this
congress. Tlie program is mow in the
hands of the executive committee, of
which ex-Governor Thomas, of I tali,
is chairman, and it will embrace such
leading topics as irregation, Engineer-
ing, state laws alieeting irrigation, na-
tional legislation 011 irrigation, effects
of irrigation on horticulture and agricul-
ture, irrigation bonds as an invesement,
irrigation machinery and appllnnces, and
A handsome book on irrigation is also
being prepared by the committee, to be
issued about August 10th, which will be
sent to all interested parties who will
send four cents in postage stamps for it.
Particulars about the congress can be
obtained from C. D. Willard, secretary,

They said that dad he been favora-
