Jrive yonr rival's advertising attention, but give your rival no advertising. Advertising prestige is hard to win, but not hard to lose. It is easiest sustained. The add should be so plain that it will be understood by a reader of little understanding. Your advertising should be complete in itself.

Dec. 17.—"I firmly believe," said General Lew Wallace, "that the next war we shall engage in will be with Japan. There is a country with fine naval equipment and a good army, flushed with recent victories and a country spoiling for a fight. They need a good thrashing, and we are able to give it. They have been landing troops on the Hawaiian islands for a long- time under the guise of emigrants, and there is now a Japanese army of 40,000 on the islands. Dole discovered the scheme, and has tried to put a stop to the secret landing of this army, but the Japanese already landed are there." "Do you mean to say, general, that Japan will declare war if we annex Hawaii?" Says Annexation Will Fail. "We won't annex it. I am in favor of the annexation of the islands, but you will see that this administration will not annex them. What we should do right away is to take these islands when they are being offered to us for nothing. In fifteen years we shall be engaged in a war to get them if we don't annex them now. You will live to see that war. I may not, but you mark my word when I say that you will see it. Those islands which we can now get for nothing will cost us untold money, for there is nothing so expensive as war." Jumps on Kepresentative Hilborn. "Speaking about our engaging in war," continued General Wallace, "I noticed in the papers the other day that Congressman Hilbom. of California, had, before some class in Chicago the day befo'.-e. lectured upon our military equipment, and, although he is a member of the house committee on naval affairs, ho made the statement that while we had some vessels we did not have in this country enough powder to fire the ordinary salutes. He made this statement to express the absurdity in his opinion of this country engaging in war. Would Have Him Disciplined. "That fellow should he disciplined for that kind Of talk. He ought to know that this country has concealed some place in the Allegheny mountains enough saltpeter to make all the powder we would need in a long war. That statement was highly injudicious, and I believe not, true. Even though true, however, it but advertises our weakness to the world and invites trouble. Congress should appoint a committee to have that utterance investigated and if proved to be accurately reported he shouid be censured—yes. even expelled from the house. He is not fit to ^present any ofie." COMJCCXOII FOKGOT ORDKRS. Didn't Siili'-Trnck His Train Rixl.Thrcn 'Dead Men i* the Sequel.
