Remove ihe Profit Moiioe Those who advocnte legalixiiiion of liquor, with high licVnsn and I'.igh lux- ation, as ;i substitute for prohibition, would iierpctimlti .-ome of the most serious evils of (he present regime. Much of the present demand lor re- pcid or modification of prohibition is attributable to the very evident fact thai prohibition has created a large class of law violators. Persons holding that view ought to realixe Unit, high license and high taxation would tend to produce (he same result. The prohibition law is not observed because it is profitable to violate it. The sumc incentive for violation of the law would exist under a regime that legalized intoxicating beverages hut niiulc them artificially high in price by imposing heavy taxes upon them and those licensed to soli them. One essential to the elimination of abuses attendant upon the liipior traffic is diminution of the opportunity for profit, legal or otherwise, from Unit traffic. The only way we know of to accomplish that is by a system of government sale at prices with which illicit nrivutc manufacturers or retailers cannot profitably compete. Such a plan, hacked by a government policy of discouraging rather than promoting the sale of ils liquid merchandise, would conic about as close as anything to solving a problem that probably never will be disposed of in a 100 per cent satisfactory fashion: A Good Platform There is so much tliiit is praiseworthy in the platform adopted hy the Democratic stale convention and in Judge Jlariou FtitrcU's declaration of the policies that he will follow as governor of Arkansas that it is impossible to make reference here to all of it. Outstanding, however, is ihe platform statement that "the cure for the state's present financial ills must be found in the practife of rigid economy ami through drastic reductions in optT- ating costs," and lhal "the iwoplu should not be burdened with any increased or additional taxes." Jiuliro Futrcll backed lhal up with llie assertion that there should !>e no increase in taxation "in any form, shape or fashion."

"Au bon marche" . . . through Advertising One of the largest department stores in Paris is named "Au Bon Marche." Translated, it means "at a bargain—cheap." Actually, "au bon marche" indicate.-; to the French what a true bargain does to Americans—dependable merchandise at fair prices. V> nen so many shops everywhere are full of merchandise on which the "price appeal" is prominent, it is necessary that the wise shopper insist upon products of known value and proven merit. The clock that will not keep time is hardly a bargain at any price. Foodstuffs and drug-store supplies must contain pure ingredients and be prepared under hy- tfenic conditions, lest they become not only cheap but dangerous. \Vearing apparel at a mark-down is only a snare and a delusion if it lacks the quality that will result in wear. \Vise shoppers, these days, arc refusing substitutes, are weighing true worth against price appeal. 1 hey are using the advertisements in this newspaper as a shopping guide. When a merchant advertises his wares consistently, you may be sure that he is' telling tne truth about them. Me could not afford to do otherwise, even if he *, desired. When a manufacturer ot national scope- upp.-als to you through these pages, you can beheve and act upon his words. "Au bon marclR-." Today advertising points the way to the only n ; ;U Imrguins!
