Sloppy'-MinJedness Because foclinjr; is a much on-ier anil more congenial prui-css tliiui thinking it is not. surprising Hint ujipwils to prejudice and emotion arc oi'len more successful than iipjjeiil.s to rwison. In fact perhaps the siinmsinj? Ihiuif is Dial common sense triumphs as often as it does. Emot iuiial reaction:; are natural, atui have their place, but (hey should lie kept in it. They have no place in the determination of public affairs, nnd n safe and good rule for the man or woman ( who cannot always have an atlei|tia:to knowledge of the issues involved is to look uiHin appeals to his emotions by candidates or others -ec'k- ing t<\ sway public opinion as evidence of lack of material for a sounder plea. Just as ;i lawyer who finds the evidence against him seeks to .play upon the feelings or projmlicc.s of the jury, so the the iioiilician with little to justify him is likely lo appeal In the emotions rather than the j;oud sense of the voters. An excellent example of this sort of thing is now furnished in a Texas city, where a city manager who has effected remarkable economies and improvements in the conduct of the city's business is being attacked as a "carpetbagger." Unfortunately resort to tactics of that sort is not confined to petty municipal politicians disgruntled because efficiency has dislodged them from (lie payroll^ ,A Jew weeks ago, the New York Evening Post, which poses as (lie news organ of the conservative nnd straight thinking business men of the city, answered the suggestion jtliat John Garner might make a good president of the United States by describing him as one, of those "sloppy-minded, easy-going Southerners." ' Whatever faults he may possess, our . private impression of Mr. Garner is that he is neither sloppy-minded or easy-going. In any event, however, the Post's attack upon him was an appeal to prejudice and emotion, to sloppy-niindodnc-ss, if yon please, rather than (o reason. William Randolph Hearst, who publishes sloppy-minded newspapers for sloppy-minded persons all over the United'States, and who Uferefore is OUT OUR WAY well iiwiiro thai there (tru plenty of them every where, -;tnc] pailiailiirly in New .York city, took tlic trouble to answer the I'ost, and to <ly him justice (lid n pretty l';iir job of it, in Ihu Hearst fashion, 'i'liu Ilciirst ('(litiiri:il has !H:L-H wiilftly (jiiolcil throughout the ,Si,;;i!i mid <•!«'where, not >;o much I'm 1 its cniliii'M.-- nu'iil of CJui-jKT .'I.-: for its iiii:,wiv to tin; I'd-sl-'s i;ciiLi'iili>;:i(ion (iljoul "K]O|>|>.V- mimlcd SoiUlic-i'iici-.s."

Prices were anything the dealer had to pay, plus a profit. And his profits were as elastic as his necessity—or opportunity. Our grandmothers had a very fine knowledge of woolens, cottons, silks. They used their eyes and fingers in. buying. They tasted and sniffed at foodstuffs. Our grandfathers knew an intimate lot about woods, veneers, stains. They knew leathers aud machinery and cutlery. They had to. Today you can shop with assurance by designating this brand of this and that brand of 'thatTaSd l^ X S bothcr to check the price on the bill when it comes. You can send a twelve-year-oid~to^mTr]«TwTLTi a note and never have a doubt of kind, quality or price—if you buy advertised goods. Advertising has established standards, established values and established confidence. Advertising- forces fair dealing and honest merchadise. It puts the whip in your hand. Do you read the advertisements?
