A lawyer was once asked by tbe president of a railroad to suggest a sign that could be posted at railroad crossings— something tbat would pre- vent accidents uud would also be effective in • defending damage suits wben uccldents occurred. He suggested tbe three words. "Stop! Look! Listen!" He received a fee of $10.000, and his suggestion was worth it because those words, post- ed at grade crossings, pre vented many accidents.

CONFIDENCE Merchants Spend Money to Gain It and Hold It By HOLLAND. YOUR confidence is au as set that every manufac- turer of reputable goods seeks, tie spends money to gain it and will take uli nec- essary pains to retain it. Your confidence In the integrity of a manufacturer, your -belief that goods bearing a certain brand are always up to stand- ard. is one of the intangible assets known as "good will" and which Is regarded by a business man as essential to his success. Manufacturers spend mil- lions telling you about their goods. They cannot hope to get this money back by the tlrst transactions. They must make you a customer and keep you a customer. To do this they must make honest goods at an honest price. This accounts for the fact that advertised goods are al- ways of high class. It would not pay to advertise goods that will not bear rigid test The ADVERTISING CREATES CONFIDENCE. Then the manufacturer de- pends on the quality of his product to still further adver- tise it and...

To her more than any one else is due the credit of securing his release from imprisonment at Fortress Monroe, and his vindication when the charges against him by the government were abandoned in the United States courts.

More than 200 years ago the Dutch rulers,of Ceylon, anxious to retain their monopoly of the pre- cious spice for which that island is famous, enacted a law that made it a capital offense to buy or sell the wild jungle cinnamon, then the only sort known. The plants, wherever found, were held to be the property of the state. If a shrub chanced to spring up in a man's dooryard, he could neither destroy nor use it un- der severe penalties. Things are different now. Today the cultivation is something like that of a willow copse, straight young shoots springing up round the stump of the plant previously cut. These shoots are cut every second year. They measure two inches in circumference. Many of them are sol# as walking sticks and find a ready market among steamer passengers, who think that there must be a special charm i...

To misplace a vowel is, in short- hand, the easiest thing in the world A well known reporter tells of a pu- pil who by this n^eans turned "mighty acts" into "mighty cats," and another report of a sermon was spoiled by the advice, "Return a blow with an a¿" instead of "a kiss."

^ "AFTER DINNER" TRIALS. Quick "Justice" Under the Old Crimi- nal Code In England. In these days of criminal trials long drawn out it may not be unin- teresting to glance back at a time when, in England at least, com- plaint ran in the opposite direction. Such were the earlier years of Queen Victoria, when the old crimi- nal code still survived in much ,of its archaic barbarity and the p'ic- turesqueness of legal procedure in- adequately compensated for its cru- elty, says London Tit-Bits. The late Lord Brampton, better known as Sir Henry Hawkins, re- fers in his reminiscences to the scandal of what he calls the "after ) dinner" trials of that period. Tt. was then the custom for the court to adjourn for dinner at 5 o'clock, lit which meal there was no lack of conviviality, so that when thf bench and bar returned to their du- ties they were in no mood for pro- tracted toil. In Lord Brampton's own words, "judges and counscl were exhilarat- ed and business was proportionately accelerat...

Editor Courier I understand that petitions are being circulated throughout the country, adVising the citizens and taxpayers that a proposition which caite for the erection of a new jail, at a cost of perhaps fifteen to twenty-five thousand dollars, is pending before the commissioners' court Knowing it will be impossi- ble for everyone to see the petition, and believing that in a matter of such importance as the erection of a public building everyone is con- cerned, I take this means of circu- lating it more widely. We do not think the commissioners' court would have the county incur such a debt without being so authorized by the people of the county. Whether bonds are issued, or a con- tract is let, the effect will be the same. In either case it meaos a big tax rate for about forty years. Surely the county judge and the court will not take steps that w...
