Running; the Newspaper
Everybody thinks he can run a newspaper better than the benighted
souls who have been placed by Providence in that unenviable position.
Maybe its because the editor’s faults are glaring ones—out in the
open in black and white -or. possibly, it is just a queer quirk of hu- j sv,Net^ P©pcr. a so pic^' ing reets,

is opposed to the saloon. The Democrats sav the paper is a "dirty
rag" it the editor is a Republican m his sympathies, and the Republi-
cans stop their subscriptions if he conies out for a Democrat. It the
editor is for anything the antis condemn him, and vice versa. If he j
takes a stand he is trying to dictate to the community. If he doesn’t
take a stand, he is a mollycoddle and a jellyfish, a crank, a reformer,

Is Advertising Expensive?
Advertising that is regarded by the advertiser as an expense is just
that. There is something wrong with it. Nine times out of ten the
copy has a charley horse. Its so weak it couldn t move itself let alone
move others. And whose fault is that? Advertising? Not on your life.
Its the fault of the man who is paying for the advertising. Go to his
store, and the chances are that you will hnd it slowly expiring from cotton. Offiice any where on the ) ♦

Tire constant increase of court expenditures is inexplicable to the
burdened tax-payers who ha\e not gone to the trouble of seeking a
solution based upon investigation. The trouble primarily is traceable
to the legislative mill which gnnds out an endless quantity of useless
and otten harmtul laws. Such hodgpodge products of the legislative
machinery leads directly to increased court business. Anothdr bad
practice of legislative bodies is that of paving more attention to partv
politics and the spoils incident there to the real business that should
have consideration. There certainly should be some pian adopted
whereby legislatures will attend to making laws and not to seeking
