Newspaper advertlulntf bag a two
fold benefit. It helpi the niau who
ttiui glvei publicity to the advantHKot
be olferi the buyers, aud It creates a
favorable impression of a city by
bowing to all readers of the paper
the live, wideawake character of it
buslneaa men. Hen Hampton, a very
observing New York business man,
baa the following interesting cb erva
tiont about newspapers and the prao
tioal effeots they'produoe in a com
munity: "Can you imagine for a 'minute
what life would be without the news
paper? It goes Into the borne, the
office, the faotory, the shop, on the
cars, on trains wherever you find
human beings there will you Hud
"More than that, you will flud the
newspaper is read carefully, not only
fori the -news of people and eveuts
that it gives each day, but for the iu
lertutlna news of stores.
"I have made many interesting ex
periments to satisfy myself as to just
bow newspaper Is read. I know
that other people have done this and
Ifam pretty sure that the experience
of.evervemaa who makes any iuvetttl
Bfttions.alonathls line will prove that
the Hrst thing that is read in a paper
published in a small olty Is the news
of a Deraonal aud purely looal charro
tor. I am speaking now of the women
readers. They are the ones who buy
the goods and they are the oues thut
we are particularly interested in.
"After the personal information
and local news Is read, a woman may
glanoe through to see what the big
newt events of the day are about
tbat if lust about as far as her inter
est goes. Then she reads the ads; it,
indeed, she hasn't read them before.
The ads. are to ber just as Interesting
as any other part of the newspaper,
and I suspect many times they are
mora interesting tban most of the
columns of the average daily news
"The store news as given In the ad-
vertlslnff columns Is not only or In
terest to the thrifty, Intelligent
housewife, but it is absolutely hi liu
portant part of ber dally buHlness.
She wants to keeD posted on the new
est thinss: also, she must keen in
formed as to the best places to buy
the articles of meroliainline that she
needs In conducting ber household
AH this Inforniaitou she gots from the
advertising columns of the newspaper,
"No one need ever question the
ability of the advertisement to get it
self read. That's the easiest thing in
the woild. Every advertisement of
fair size is sura to attract some utten
tlon. If the ad. is well put together
tvooKraohloally. if the headlines are
prooerlv written aud properly dis
played, and if the text matter is pre
pared with thought and attention ; if
in other words it is made interest
log news, tne ad. itself will be read
with ail the care that Is needed.
"After that everything depends on
the messsae that tne ad. carries, if
that message Is one of interest to the
woman, it it promises her a good
niece of merchandise at a fair prico,
tbeohanoes are that she will buy that
merchandise If she needs It.
"There bas been such an atmosphere
of mystery aud romance thrown
around advertising tbat 1 think many
people are ofteu confused by what Is
after all, one of the simplest proposi
tions In business.
"A good store with good merchan
dise can build up a good business
without advertising. If it adds to its
other things good advertiisng, it Is
sure to build up a bigger business,
to build it on a more solid founda
tlon and to place It beyond the reach
A Mubstltnte for Cedar fonts,
A cattleman named (leorge Wright,
who bas a ranch near Holly, Powers
coauty, tells bow he outs iu half a big
Item in fence building by makiug hia
posts of oouoiete. "the cheapest
fence post we oau get In Kastern Col
orado," be says, "ousts us sixteen
cents even when bought iu carload
lots, which makes fencing an expen
sive luxury In the conduct of a cattle
ranch. Cement is comparatively
cheap and we have saud iu unlimited
quantites. About a year ago 1 hit up
on the idea of making tence posts of
oemeut. I tried it aud have found
by actual test tbat fence posts capable
of lasting an age, which will with
stand the destructive prairie lires,
may be made for eight cents each.
"My meu are now putting iu all
their spare time makiug concrete
fence posts. The molds are of very
simple construction. A level plot of
ground Is selected on which a iloor is
built of inch lumber, laid ou string
era. This section of Hour Is as wide
as the posts are long and both sides
and ends are nailed strips of iuoh
lumber making a big, Hat, shallow
trought. i'nen crosswise are fastened
other inoh strips live inches high or
us the posts are to be wide. They are
placed slightly diagonal tbat the pasts
may taper from eight Inches at the
bottom to four inches at the top.
"Large spikes are theu Hxud along
the molds at Intervals to make holes
for the wire fasteuings aud theu the
molds are ready to receive the con-1
crete. In mixing the ooncrete for
fence posts no crushed rock or gravel
is used but only screened saud in pro
portions of about five paits of sand
to one of cement. It is mixed dry at
Hrst and then enough water is added
to make slightly fluid substance.
Pieces of barbed wire, cut the length
of the post, are then placed in the
mold and the concrete is poured over
then aud ilrinly tamped.
"This wire serves to reenforco the
concrete and gives it greater resisting
power. Alter lying about twelve
hours the coucreto is set and the
posts are ready to be taken out while
the molds can lie used for a second
batch. Owing to the scarcity of tim
ner In all parts or lliu country cou
creto is quite gcuorally used for build
ing purposes, but so fai as 1 know 1
am the Hrst person to iibo it In mak
ing fence posts. 1 am very well satis
lied with my experiments and intend
to keep up the manufacture. Field
Ilaynanl .Makes a Find.
C. E. llayward, an employe of the
Sextou-Wallhoi Co., .uiudo quite an
important disco very yesterday. In
the alley betweeu the store aud the
warehouse there had lulu an old gun
ny sack, rolled up and wrapped
around with cord, for nearly a week.
He supposed it had been thrown aside
by some farmer and paid no nttoutim
to it until yesterday, when be thought
he would examine the contents uf the
dirty paicel. On opening the gunny-
sack, he found it ti contain a 'M M
Savage rille, Luger automatic revol
ver and a gold watch uf the Waltham
manufacture. About two weeks ago
two bouses at Uul'iir had been bur
glarized, and these articles had been
taKeu from them, as they agreed ex
actly with the descriptions gi.en Mar
shal Hex ton over the phone at that
time. Another pistol was takeu at
the same time and place but this is
missing. The watch and pistol be
long to Ueorge Covey of Dufur, and
the ilile to tioy l'eabcdy. It is sup
posed that the burglars, not desiring
to purchase ammunition and thus ex
pose themselves to arrest, had at
t mpted to enter the store Imn tho
rear and help themselves to the abun
dance carried in stock, lining dis
turbed they hail tied aud left the gun
ny sack behind. There may be fur

The defendant waived examination

the supreme court before it Is Unish
ed, there being nothing but legal
questions to decide. Should the su
premo court determine that a ship

violation oi the local option liquor law,
the liquor shipments will bo ended.
At the same rime, the thousands of
dollars sent into the wet counties in

At present large quantities of beer
ami whiskey are shipped into Cor

such cases the sale is made at the
