USSING the development of the daily newspaper and place in the community which it serves, the Jackson ) Clarion-Leader says: When a earrier leaves a paper on a doorstop, it may occur to him that he is playing a part in the econom- •fe of his town, but so it is, for to each individual ier he js really delivering the "market place of the "*"injty.' How many carriers—how many readers •would recognize their familiar newspaper under a title? Yet such it literally is. The newspaper a§ a market place is but the culmina- [qn of a Jong development. Generations ago, the market 8C6 for the hardy families of the frontier was the trav- ing peddjer. Subsequently he shifted his pack from his fifc |fl a horse or wagon. Then he was supplanted by - general store, which in turn gave way to the large •"^•raept store and specialty shops. development of the daily newspaper as a purveyor .information has been rapid and complete. It has been only "^- yfiars since a daily paper was a novelty in the average .. !pt Way we have few families, even in the rural '|c|», where it is not a regular and a welcome visitor In fair weather and foul, this "market-place" comes in Wtm of news—news of what to buy and why, where to ajjd when—and even how much to pay. 4 few weeks ago the Merchants Association of the State -— York sent a questionnaire to 2,000 families, gathered — from telephone directories. The question was ask', type of advertising attracts you most?"

Dies—Lives Again LOS ANGELES.—Her breath died down and her heart ceased to beat. Mrs. William M. Wheeler was apparently dead. But an hour anl a half after the family's first shock of grief, Mrs. Wheeler opened her eyes. Since her "death" she has been showing remarkable progress in recovering from double labor pneumonia.

Famous Fortunes Hit By Depression Vandcrbilu Drop 43 Million—G. F. Baker Lose* 30 NEW YORK-(yp)-The severe dc- clintf in the price of railroad securities has involved tt heavy shrinkage In fortunes .of several noted .families 6s measured by security market values. Some of these had one or more membS-s who in aft earlier day played a leadnig part in railroad control anl management, like the yanderbilt and Harriman families. Other estates suffered a heavy depredation through railroad investments of comparatively recent making. A depreciation of almost $100,000,000 since January 1 in the rail stock hold, ings of five well known families is estimated by E. Ediwarl Lnufer, statistician of the New York Stock Exchange firm .of Louchein, Minton & Co. The heaviest loss shown in the compilation affects the rail holdings of the Vanderbilt family which show an estimated depreciation of $43,152,000, largely in New, York Central. The next largest loss is that estimated to have been sufered by heirs of the late George F. Baker, amounting to $30,800,000, the larger part contributed by a $10,750,000 shrinkage in Lackawanna and New York Central holdings. The lecline in the Harriman family holdings was placed at $8.756,000, of which more than $3,700,000 resulted from the heavy decline in the market value of Union Pacific stock. Railroad holdings of Arthur Curtiss James had a market slump equal to about $9,000,000. the compilation says, •nainly in large holdings of Western Pacific, which he controls. Other leavy losses are charged up to his reported holdings of Great Northern anl Southern Pacific. New York Central and subsidiary ine holdings of Edward S. Harkness are said to have suffered a market depreciation of $7,508,000. Holdings of the above families upon which these estimates of depreciation were based were disclosed early this fear in testimony before a Congres- iional committee.
