A TEST OF NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING
- - It is announced from New York sources that the Belgian
relief fund In that field has passed the million. dollar mark. It
is the fact that this achievement in. philanthropy is due first and
foremost to newspaper advertising,
Most of that money has been directly contributed to collec
tion centers designated by the newspapers and the method of
contribution and the amounts contributed in specific Instances
indicate that the giving was in response to newspaper urging. For
example, it is of record that the lowest contribution, one cent,
was made by a Chinese laundryman, who said that he saw in the
newspapers that that amount would be received.
Here is another instance covering larger contributions, yet
.evidently those made by people in moderate circumstances. By
a. -certain committee there was simultaneous insertion of an ad
vertisement with coupon attachment in three of the big New York
dailies. In less than, a week more than $25,000 was collected, all
of which was traceable to those coupon advertisements.
It was not only by the direct appeal in paid advertisements
that the newspapers helped in this splendid work J hor was it
the New York nor yet the Eastern papers alone that helped
swellthe financial Tesult for the relief of the suffering Belgians.
' The case of Belgiumvwas exploited as a stupendous human inter
est story the country over; and relief was vastly the more gen
erously afforded on that account. The American newspaper
. never did better work In the cause of humanity; it never better
demonstrated the value of thepublicity which it gives. Tele
gram, "T BUILDING FOR A DAY.
1 ; Probably the most hopeful thing architecturally about Am
erican cities, says the Saturday evening Post, is that nobody,
expects them to last long. We read without surprise, 'for ex
ample, that a Chicago structure Is so antiquated it no longer
pays expenses and interest. It was erected nearly twenty-five
years ago and naturally is out of date. It is considerably higher
than any business structure we recall in London, or Paris, or
Berlin. Probably an American builder Would consider its modern
improvements in advance of anything to be found In those cities;
but to pay In an American city it should be twice as high.
All our skyscrapers' are monuments to the landlord, piling
ever higher and higher rental values to a given plot of ground.
Their natural concomitants are vast and serried' flat buildings,
packed subways and , straphangers 'In the surface and elevated
care. A powerful! tendency to pfte up in one spot 'Is visible In
Inbst' American towns. The idea is 'tb 'get all the bufsmess',' if
possible, on a given forty acres. Hiving business naturally means
hiving people and tremendous demands for 'transportation in the
hours when they shuttle between business hive and 'dwelling hive,
j Perhaps this is more economical than the slow old European
style of sprawling at large and mixing business and residence all
UP together; but Its effects are less agreeable to the eye. That
we have not, on the whole, made up our minds as to.how a city
should be built, is indicated by the facility with which we tear
down and build over. It we should presently decide to build New
York, say, horizontally instead of perpendicularly, there is no
thing in our architectural habits to prevent us from pulling the
thing down in a few weeks and doing it .over again.
' Right now is the time to do some effective work1 on thedk't
roads. Rains of last week moistened the ground a' little, and
now a treatment with a drag will level up the road';arid put it
inshape for good travel during the summer.' Constant repair
is' the one big secret of good roads. A railroad that failed to keep
section men going over its line constantly would soon deter
iorate and fall to pieces; If a shaky railroad is bad, so is a wagon
road that is 'hard to travel over, -'
