After a hasty glance over the state ment of earnings of the Standard OH Company for several years past we lean slightly toward the conclusion that the company's plan for pensioning Its aged employes will not force the concern into bankruptcy for at least two years. An authority on the subject says: "A corn on the foot Is nn effort of nature to protect the soft tissues of the toe from undue pressure, by form ing a hard or callous substance to re ceive it." Then nil we can sny is that Nature, If it consldeis a corn any "re lief" from anything. Is latorlug under a mistake. Maine has discovered that game laws are profitable. Uetn-een eight and ten thousand hunters from other States visited the Maine woods dur ing the hunting-season, and paid from two to three dollars a day to the li censed guides whom the law requires hunters from without the State to em ploy. Counting what they spent on fuldes, hotels, camp rentals and Tall road fares It Is estimated that the hunters left a million dollars in the Etate. It Is evidently profitable as well as humane to protect game from Indiscriminate slaughter. And now It Is stated that China has anthracite coal fields that are Im mensely greater than those of Penn sylvania, It Is hardly possible to sec anything- nowadays without finding out pretty soon that China saw It Brst It seems as if about the only things of which China U shy are an appreciation of Its own resources and an ability to make use of them.

Simplicity and economy are to be the watchwords of the women students at one of the great Western universities. Expenses for decorations at parties and banquets are to bo reduced by the use of tissue-paper hangings Instead of smllax and ribbons. The large or chestras are to be cut down to fire pieces; Invitations and programs to be printed plainly and without ornamen tation; refreshments to be limited to simple and Inexpensive dishes. All this because the college entertain ments have become a burden upon many of the students. The girls have wisely concluded that social life from which any are debarred by expense Is a failure. What again It would be, If their example were followed by so ciety outside of college!

Make your ads. strictly true In letter and In spirit I believe that the majority of business men do this now, but as It Is the most Important thins about advertising, it will bear repeating nfid reiterating. When merchants and laymen come to consider advertising In Its legitimate character of "business news," It will pay better pay tho advertiser better and the advcrtlsee, too. If you toot your little footer and then lay aside your horn, 'here's not a soul in ten short days will know that you were born. The man who gath ers pumpkins Is the mnn who plows all day, and the man who keeps It bumping Is the man who makes It pay. The man who advertises wltb a short, a sudden Jerk, Is the man who blames the editor because It didn't work. The man who gets the business has a long and steady pull and keeps the local paper from year to year quite full; he plans his advertisement In a thoughtful way and keeps forovcr at It until he makes It pay. He has faith In all the future, can withstand sudden shock and like a man of scripture has bis business on a rock. The way to think of advertising Is to consider flrst the goods you hare, to see if they are really desirable. Then' figure on the number of people likely to sco your announcement In the paper, the proportion of possible customers among that number, and what you can afford to pay for each dollar's worth of new business. That will give you the slzo of the ad. you ought to use. Then make your ad. clear, logical, convincing. Don't try to bo funny, unless you arc naturally so, and even then don't do It too often. What people want In an ad. Is exact, definite Information, It ought to be given to them lu a smooth, more or less argumentative way, and as strong ly as possible. 'Tlie other fcllon," U after the samo people. anr attempt to correct them, It Is a matter of observation that the most violent aud fanatical advocates and partisans are those who know least about the other side.

Bargain day" lu a city Is generally productive of comedies and tragedies. vblcb appeal especially to the feuilulne mind. But at least one man, who was stranded near the door of a big Bos ton department store, wnltlng for his wife, witnessed an Incident which cheered his spirit. Near blm was a handkerchief coun ter, and as he Idly watched the tide of women surging round It his glance was arrested by a remarkably pretty and somewhat conspicuous blue Jack et, curiously braided In black. He gazed at It with approval for some moments, as the wearer's back was toward him most of the time. At last- he looked away. As be turned his eyes toward the door, his glance fell upon another blue Jacket exactly like the first The woman who was wearing It was Just entering the store. He glanced back to the hand kerchief counter. There was the other Jacket and what was more. the eyes of the woman wjio wore It were fixed on the approaching coun terpart of her own garment As she looked, nn expression of anger and disgust crossed her face, and the mnn who was waiting said to himself. "There's trouble ahead." The two womeii approached each other slowly, but with evident Inten tion. Tbe wearer" of the second Jnck- et had a conciliatory air cs she pre tended to examine a fur scarf that hung near tbe door. "She won't speak unless the other one does," thought the man, but bo wns mistaken. When the woman from the handkerchief counter reached her,' the other suddenly turned with a smile on her face. "I know Just what you're thinking," she said. Impulsively. "You are tho oue who was coming back nt the end of half an hour, aren't you?" "Yes, I am," said the other, quickly. "Anil she told me the lady who had bought the first one lived In " "Providence!" said the latest comer, nodding violently. "Well. I do. 8ho said you told her you wouldn't mind hnvlng another Jacket Just llko'yours If you weren't afraid somebody who lived within a stone's throw of you, or went to the same church and be longed to tbe same clubs would buy it" "That's Just exactly what I said," admitted the other woman, with a re lenting expression about tho corners of her mouth. "I've had that happen with a bat, and It's so exasperating!" "I know. I bought a golf cape once one of three; nnd both of tho others are on my street." "How horrid! She said there were ouly Just two Imported, and when I went back, and shenld a lady from Providence had bought It nud worn 'It off. I felt perfectly safe." "Well, you see my train doesn't go for two hours, nnd I'd seen the hand kerchiefs nnd stocks advertised here, nud I just had time to run lu. I hardly ever come up to Boston after this time of the year until late In the fall, and this Jacket wouldn't be warm enough for that season. Well. I'm real glad we met I'm glad she was such a truthful girl. You know sometimes they're so anxious to make a sale, poor things, thnt they " "I know," said the first comer, now dissolved 111 smiles. She heslti.ted n moment, nnd then bending forward whispered something In the other wo man's cur, and then stood off lo look at her. "Yes, that's exactly what I paid," was the gratifying reply to the whis per, "and I think we got great bar gains, don't you?" "Yes, Indecdl Good by!" "Good-byl" And the little comedy wns over.
