fore lust the Kuterprlse Rave four
teen dollars worth of publicity to Al
bany' apple fair lu the Issue of Oe
tobcr lo. The day of publication a
number of fruit growers of Polk coun
ty called ou us for information con
e.Tiiniir entries, etc. . Of course we
had them. We always get them lu
advance. They are sent ahead with
requests to "please publish." Ia
view of the more than liberal amount
of publicity, amounting to M. hu
we had given the management of tue
fair, we ventured to call them up and
request permission to open up the
forms to insert conditions governing
entries at the nominal charge of $o
for our services. The proposal was i
rejeaeu uy meDouru oi uiu.mjn, j
and ou the next mail came a bundle
cf printed matter accompanied by a
request for their distribution among
our fruit growers. Thty even forgot
to offer to pay the phone charges.
We, publishers of the country, have
every dollar we possess in the world
Invested in our business. The eatab
lisument depends for Its survival up
on the sale of its columns. Its com
Biodi.y is publicity. It is for sale the
same as is sugar by the merchant
or near beer by the joint. There is
a cost of production to it the same
as there is to the merchant's wares.
Twenty lines for a dollar is a com
mon country price, on less than
which a publicity institution can not
survive. How many get a dollar's
worth of social publicity who nevtr
think what it costs the publisher to
give it? How many there are whose
wives are prominent in the social
column but whose printing is sent
away to be done where it costs more
and falls In less needy hands ai'.
whose business disintegrates for lack
of the publicity in which we deal?
To assist the Woodmin of the
World in success for the big cam
paign which they are now working
on we Rave them S22 worth of public
itv and on top of that we have been
compelled to seek out members of
the commute outside of Independence
to -secure for this office the printing
necessary to carry on the campaign.
FOR SAKE OF LOOKS.
The antn season has closed for
1909. Only occasional machines are
to be seen. Most of the roads are
not fit for autos now. With the in
creased number of machines in Polk
county it is hoped that the era of
better driveways has come or will
come with the opening of next season
Our roads can be greatly benefitted
if they are dragged this fall before
the winter rains set in and leveled
down. Then, again in the spring as
thoTi- tiAs-in to drv. if they are
dragged and leveled they will be
improved. A pertinent suggestion
to auto enthusiasts might be mad
that if thfw would agitate the
purchase by the county of an auto
for the use of the county judge and
commissioners, better highways would
result immediately in our county. In
this age of auto fever superlative,
when auto parties from many miles
distant are passing through our coun
try every day almost, the condition
a country's highways is a matter
common comment. Let it be a
pleasant remembrance and favorable
comment, the condition of Polk coun
ty's roads next year, for the good ad
vertising it will result in, if not for
the pleasure and comfort to all who
participate in this enjoyment, as well
as the tourists.
," LAWS ARE VIOLATED.
The section of the game law pro
viding a daily limit, of five male
pheasants is playing havoc with the
female birds in the uplands of this
county, says the Lebanon Criterion.
Hunters report that scores of female
pheasants have been found dead in
the fields, and these are retrieved by
the game dogs and brought in. This
Is due to the fact that hunters have
erred, and on investigation found the
birds'killed to be females and rather
than run the risk of arrest have aban
doned hem in the fields.
Hunters are almost a unit in the
belief that the present law will not

Wonder what reasonable excuse ex

many more good things are going to
be passed up for want of the Injec
tion of a little more enterprise into
citizens of this community?
One very flimsy excuse for failure
to Dave the streets of the city is that
it might result in inviting competing
