Parker, of the firm of Parker & Johnston, returned last evening trom Indianapolis, where he attended a session of the Indiana State Lumbermen's association. He was elected president of the association, and during the session delivered an address on advertising. It was a splendid effort, covering every branch of the subject. Among other things Mr. Parker said: "The ways of advertising are as diversified as the busy brain of man can Invent. Posters on the wall are good for a few days, but are soon covered with others; signs nailed to trees along the country roads are good, but short-lived; but of all unmitigated humbugs In the advertising line for retailers are hotel cards, dejot cards, business cards, maps and similar abominations. Men will] invest their money in these wildcat enterprises who think an advertisement In their daily or weekly paper so much money thrown away. Of course money can be wasted in advertising as well as in anything else; and I helleve the best way for a retail dealer to advertise IB in his local paper aod to have an appreciative notice written, embodying the facts b.e would naturally put in a circular, and have it dreissed up as a local. There is nothing equal to this In value. A local paper Is always opened and read, whilu Jour out of every fi.ve circulars are destroyed. One of the most successful merchants In this D. E.

It is surprising how many people there are in Loga&siport who have never seen that historic old play, "Uncle Tom's Cabin." The opportunity will be given tonight at Dolan's opera house. Mr. George Rolllson and Miss Marbaugh, of Monterey, both well known here, were united in marriage yesterday. The bride is a sister of Mrs. George Sny3er, of the Eastend, The groom is engagtid in thti lumber business at Moateirey. TUB couple left today tor a tour of the country says he would rather hare an advertisement in a local paper of 500 circulation than 5,000 dodgers or circulars; and I believe that the re- tall lumber dealer should, invest ninety-nine dollars in the columns of bis local paper to every dollar he Invests In circulars, dodgers and cards. An advertisement will not do everything. It will not have more life than Is put Into in. There are mum- nales two thousand years old that are livelier today than are some of the paid advertisements in our local papers; and the men who pay for them are the ones who say advertising does not pay, "The old display advertisement is largely a thing of the past, where everything has practically the same emphasis. The Idea! advertisement will first attract attention, and then hold that attention until Sts proper purport Is conveyed. Then to have that advertisement help you, you must keep what you advertise and do what you promise to do. It will not bring customers to your office if you do not fulfill your part of the obligation;'but if you are honestly doing what you promise to do, it will work morning, noon and alght; following people through work shop or office, and even to their homes, persistently attracting their attention and doing you good. Put it down among the anxious that judicious advertising alwavs pays, and that live advertising in your local paper is judicious advertising," ADDITIOSiL ITEMS- Mrs. Charles Gifford is 111 of pneumonia.

Hoyt's "A Black Sheep," to be presented at the opera house Saturday night, is one of those jolly entertainments that everybody wants to Bee. The principal is hot stuff, the "Slack Sheep," a most amusing type. In all of Mr. Ecyt's plays there is a creation of this sort; a travesty of some peculiar indivlt'ua ity, but l.n the present instance it i a character perhaps more famllia to th« multitude and satirized wit keener shafts of wit, without slidin, too deeply into the regions of th grotesque. Dpon none of his forme productions has Mr. Hoyt exer INDUSTRIAL SLAVERY. that Is What the Republican Party Stands Sponsor For.

"The Fondling," which enjoyed run of over 200 nights at Hoyt's the atre, Kew Yorfc, will have its firs production in Logansport on nex Monday night at the opera house The comedy is by William Leotocq.o "Jane" fame and E. M. Robson, anc will be presented here with the sami brilliant company of players tha made such a success of it in the metropolis. The most interesting feature of the production, however will oe the appearance of that fa mous and fascinating Cissy Fitz gerald, whose wonderful beauty and agile dancing ' hare made her the fashionable rage in New York. Miss Fitzgerald came to America with George Edwards' original London "A Gaiety Girl" company, and dnrlng the run of that novelty at Daly's scored the greatest hit ever achieved by a danseuse in America. Her role of the tricky little Maybud In the Foundling" Is said to give her a fine opportunity for the display of her remarkably fascinating personality.

Under the Gold Standard There Is No Profit For Farmer and Mechanic—Even, m Bare Existence Is Becoming Seanter. ATI Amendment to the Constitution. No advocate of the gold standard openly subscribe to the proposition ol continuous falling of prices which the continuance of the same standard inevitably entails. There is not one of then: but knows that the single standard means contintial decline in the prices oi! the products of labor. Therefore they fight shy of this phase of the argument. They know that prosperous times never do come and never can come while prices are on the down grade. They also know that the scarcity of money in general circulation is the sole cause of low prices. As a general rule when they are pressed for information on this feature of the financial question they quickly avoid it by introducing a lot of alleged wisdom foreign to the point al together. Sometimes they say, "What's the difference if prices continue to fall, for in that case people can buy cheaper." They apparently forget that consumers cannot buy cheaper when they have no money with which to go into market. The farmer cannot sell his products at half price and bay the products of the mechanic. The mechanic is therefore unable to get a market lor his products, and in order to meet the condition of the farmer must offer that which he produces at a greatly reduced price. Thus the two great arms of au industrial system—the farmer and the mechanic—are forced to do business year after year without profits. It is the same with nearly every division of the industrial army. Under the gold standard ;here is absolutely no reward for production. There is a bare existence, which grows more scant as time progresses. It is this state of things that is rushing our country headlong to perdition. As the chains tighten the ranks of the unemployed grow. As the ranks of the unemployed grow the end of organized society draws nearer. In the face of what is plain is it not Blindness for the advocates of gold and lower prices to continue their false; teachings? Yes, it is blindness, but gold is Always blind. The leading advocates of the single gold standard are dealers in money. They are for gold be- :ause it drives down that which is measured by gold—the products of the 'armer, the mechanic and produce generally. Their money is not seeking investment. The more of it that is kept out of circulation the more valuable it >ecoines as a measure of value, For instance, nnder tbe gold standard prices would fall at least 40 per cent in ten •ears. Therefore the sum of, say, $100,)00, locked up in a safety deposit vault or ten years -would in ten years be worth $140,000 as a measure of value. ?he gold standard is therefore the best hing for the money owners and the worst thing for the producer of that which is measured by money. How any man engaged in production .s a wage earner or otherwise can at the ame time support the gold standard is omething not easily understood. Cer- ainly the intelligence of the American jeople is too keen to be fuddled on the .reposition. The American people favor a large •olume of money and insist that it hall be increased at a ratio to keep jaee with production. No political par- y absolutely opposed to bimetallism las ever yet dared to face the electorate f the United States. The Republicans wou last year on a platform not greatly ifferent -with regard to financial maters from the Democratic pledge. The nly difference was that the Democratic jlatform meant what it said. The E«- nblican platform did not mean what it and 6,500,000 votes have within ae past few months seen their suspi- ions in this respect justified. The administration has receded from the inter- ational bimetallism pledge and now stands flatly for gold alone as the meag- re of labor's products. From this p<>- ition the party cannot now recede. The Republican party today is the wnsor for an industrial slavery. Even ionld it recede from the gold when tbe attle becomes hot, that action will not elease it from tbe deserved contempt of je 7,000,000 voters who were fooled by ;s false promise to abolish the gold tandard if intrusted with power. The reater portion of those 7,000,000 voters ill be found working shoulder 1:0 shoulder -with the Democrats in tbe ext national campaign. Therefore the nly obstacle now in the way of indns- rial freedom through bimetallism is IB three years' lease of power that be- ongs to the Republican party. It can o a great deal of harm between now and March 4, 1901. For that reason we are in favor of lis kind of an amendment to the comtitntion: "Every political party seeking the suffrages of the people of the arious states and territories shall fulfill its pledges within one year after the .augnration of the president. Failure do so shall necessitate another gem- sral election." Another Qnery For Protectionist*. We selil Canada |61,000,000 a year. reat Britain sells Canada only $22, 00,000 a year.
