Bill Jones says; There's the man behind the gun W! 0 thuu his country serves, The man behind the throttle Keen-eyed with iron nerves: But the man who's most behind The one who never climbs Is he who will not advertise The man "Behind the Times." Fake Advertising According to the Centralia Chronicle, the Comlnercial Club of Centralia is to start war on Iake advertising. It is high time that something of this kind was done. It is also a subject that the Twin City Credit Association might in- vestigate with profit. The union of business interests along these lines can be made a great protec- tion to individl ,t businessmen. The advertising fakir is one of the most persistent and one of the slnoothest agents that COlH'ront the builtessmen. He is usually a glib talker t in fltct z has to be iu order to make his business a success. He usually prolnies most anything that conies hand)', for he is here to- day all i goue tonlorrow, 11o one knows where. He has no interest in the town, the businesslllen, or anyone else, excepting what hecan pull from the nlerchant for the time being. Aut nine times out of ten the merchant might as well pour his lnoney in a hole in the grouhd for all the practical adver- tising he gets out of the scheme advocated by mast advertisiiig fa- kirs. It is something of a reflection on the average businessman that he is so easily caught on fake ad- vertising dodges, for the merchant is usually the brightest of our citi- zenship. The crop of shrewd ad- vertising agents is increasing, and the easy money they secure has led ta all kinds of stunts being pulled off in the same of advertiz- ing. The variety of these dodges are too lnany to attenlpt to enu- merate here.--Chehalis Bee-Nug- get. i Seven .towns iu Washington which are now "dry" territory, having voted out the saloons, are going to vote on the local option question again at the time of the general election Nove]uber 8. For the most part the business men of these towns have found that the prohibition attitude of their city has hurt their business. In some cases it has been shown that it is too difficult and costly to enforce the law against drinking. Other citias cannot afford to lose the rev- enue from saloon licenses So it is likely that some of the "dry," towns will vote "wet," while some of the "wet" communities in the state will doubtless vote "dry." The present local option law gives the communities a chance to change their minds every two years if they want to. Conditions seem to be so unsettled that business men secret to be strongly opposed to any I changes iu tile local option law at I i present, preferring to wait and let I the present law work out its own I ! I salvation. It seems to be fair enough to all parties. From a recent report of the State Bureau of Inspection, it is shown that Washington is in receipt of the tidy sum of $1,000 per day as net income from public lunds in- vested in various gilt:edge securi- ties. Under a provision of the state constitution the principal pro- ceeds from certain land grants must remain forever intact, but such funds may be invested in in- terest-bearing securities and the in- come therefrom used for current expenses. At the end of Septem- ber 1910, .the state cash so invested amounted to $8,126,346, and as this vast sum cannot legally be diminished, but is being increased from year to year, conservative es- timates showing a total of not less than $60,000,000 as soon as certain school lands shall be disposed of, a neat little fortune will, within a sh(irt time, be at the disposal Of the state for every day in the year. The time is coming near at hand when Monroe must endeavor to reach out after new factories and industries in order to maintain the past steady rate of growth. A larger insured steady payroll to people living and supporting fami- lies right within the town is need- ed and the members of the Com- mercial club should keep their eyes open for opportunites to secure some other big industry. There are plenty of openings here and it only requires looking up the right men to have some of them filled. It may have looked as though the building record in Monroe this year would be overdone but, as a matter of fact, great as it has been it has not been sufficient to supple the demand. v/ Tickling in the throat, hoarse - ness. loss of voice, indicate the need of BALLARD'S BORE OHUND SYRUP.

The local office has received quite a few letters lately stamp- ed with Canadian Stamps. Pa. irons are advised that these let ters do not go forward but are held for postage. "Tolerance" In Coins. The mint allows a certain degree of "tolerance" in coins. For example, the gold double eagle's standard weight is 516 grains, and the "'tolerance" allowed Is half a grain. A coin of this denom- ination may weigh as little as 515 grains or as much as 5liP/2 grains, but never less than the first nor more than the second figure. The standard weight of the silver half dollar is 192.9 grains, and the tolerance allowed is 1.5 grains. This coin may weigh as little as 19i.4 grains and as much as 194.4 grains, but never less than the first nor more than the second figure. The standard fineness of all gold and silver eoins is 900. In the gold coins a devia- tion of only one one-thousandth from this is allowed and in the silver coins of only three one-thousandth. The so called five cent nickel coin is really only 25 per cent nickel, the rest helng copper. One cent pieces are 95 per cent copper and 5 per cent tin and sinc.--Phliadelphia Record. 8it Walter Scott's Debts.

He did the best he could, but he had to depend solely upon his writings, and the task was more than mortal man could accomplish. As his powers fail- ed he became possessed of the idea that all his debts were paid and that he was a free man. and In this belief he happily remained till his death.- New York American.
