Advertising is an important
feature of modern business.
A merchant may have the ,
very thing the public needs '
but unless the latter is aware
of this, the law of supply
and demand will not work
out. Newspaper advertising
is the best way to accomplish
this end. The name of a
business man or firm which .
appears regularly in the co
lumns of the Recorder is
naturaly most familiar to Re
corder patrons and the first
to be patronized when any
thing is needed.

Planet Earth Him. Long Future Ahead
and It is Getting Better as a Place
to Live, Says the Geologist
The earth is not beginning to lose
moisture and atmosphere and is there
fore not in the afternoon of its exist
anco: instead it is getting bigger and
wetter, according to present day ge
ologists, among whom is Warren D
Smith, Ph. D. professor of geology in
the state university.
"It is the chemist's view rather
than the geologists, that the earth is
passing its prime and will in time be
come a dead body like the moon says
Dr. Smith. The latest researches in
geology seem to indicate that the
earth is still growing in size and ac
quiring moisture. As it grows it at
tracts more nnd more atmosphere in
stead of losing what it has.
"Besides getting tlie material that
is always being fed into the earth in
the form of meteorites, we may any
tin1 drift into a part of spate that is.
even richer in world building parti
cles than the space we arc in now.
Many geologists believe that the pres
ent lifeless condition of the moon is
one which the earth passed long ages
api. We '.ire more apt to be smother
ed because the air is getting too thick
and moist than we are apt to dry up
and blow away.
"But before either of these condi
tions come to pass we shall probably
have discovered a way to migrate to
some other planet, or bo to n :r
tain extent released from bodily lim
itations and be able to exist on a moro
nearly spiritual plane in a way that in
