To make advertising pay is toTiave an article or many articles of merit to sell, worth the money and then tell the people through the newspaper what you have. The store that does not have an article of merit at a price worth the money has no excuse for existence. Truth is, most of them do have but the people do not know what it is unless they are informed Jthrough their favorite borne paper. Wb^n a store must spend money for overhead expenses auch as beat, light, clerk hire and the thousand and one other things, the percentage of cost of selling goods can be reduced by selling more goods with the same expense. AdverUsing does that very thing for every store that invests in H. Advertising is always an investment and never an expense. No matter how large a store is nor how small, it can reduce Us overhead expense by a judiciou# inv«st> ment in advertising if it has any reason why people should do thsir buying I there.

Ohio. _  ^ An effort is being made by the citizens of Jefferson, Marion and Lockhart townships to get an improved road from Otwell to Stendal. A petition has been circualted along the route asking for an election for the building of such a road. By the building of an improved road along this route it will throw Otwell. PikeviUe and Stendal people closer to the railroad It will make a much less expense on drayage for the people of these communities since larger loads and more trips can he made over an improved road than over unimproved roads. Two of the townships through which the proposed road nins, Lockhart and Marion, now have no improved roads. Although the war brought with it a wonderful lesson on the value of thrift there are a great many peifsons who failed to profit by it. At Jeffersonville, Ind , according to the the town assessor, more persons own player pianos and automobiles than own hcrmes. In former years we found a majority of persons were «savingr to buy their homes. But this year they are saving their money not to buy homes but to pay install menta on piano players, tilking machines and automobiles. These same persons, the rasj^ssor «ays. do not object to an assessment of $80 on a car but. thought $50 too much on household goods. Jeffersonville is not alone. Other cities , and towns are in the same boat. Doubtless one of the best moyemehts under way at present in a great many, cities and towna^in Indiana is the “own-a-bomé” campaign. In practically every place whez« this campaign has been inaugurated extraordinary inducements have been tendered to all persons who wish to own their own homes. And who does not? The more bomb owners there are in a community the more contentment you will find among the eitisenry. -—Evansville Courier. Masonic Notice—There will be a called meeting of Winslow Lodge No. 260 F. & A. Masons Saturday eveqing for the purpose of conferring the Master Mason Degree. Would like to have every member of the Lqdge presént at this meeting. Visiting brethren will find a welcome. Abe L. Loeser, W. M. Evansville merchants are raising a fund of $10,000 to advertise the advantages of trading in Evansville among the people of the outlying districts. This includes us. It means that if we are to bold our trade we must off-set that city’s advertising with an advertising propoganda of our own. No matter bow much better people can do by trading with Winslow stores unless the people are told about it they will never find it out but will go to Evansville. Winslow merchants can do four times the advertising in the territory tributary to this town for the same money Evanvsille can. There is no use kicking about what the other fellow is doing io the advertising line. The only thing to do is to beat him to it with advertising. The sworn statement of election expenses of a Georiga man who was defeated for uffice is as follows. “Lost, 1349 hours of sleep thinking about the election. Lost two front teeth and a whole lot of hair in a personal encounter with an opponent. Donated one beef, four shoats and five sheep to a county barbecue. Gave away two pairs of suspenders, four calico dresses, $5 cash and thirteen baby rattles. Kissed 126 babies. Kindled 14 kitchen fires. Put up four stoves. Walked 4,076 miles. Shook hands with 9,508 persons. Told 10.101 lies, and talked enough to make in print, 1,000 volumes. Attended sixteen revival meetings and was paptized four different times by immersion, and twice some other way. Contributed $50 to foreign missions, and made love to nine grass widows. Hugged forty-nine old maids. Got dog-bit thirty-nine times, and was defeated.^ ” A Charles Poehlein and Lon Davis were caught by a fall of slate in No. 4 mines Tuesday afternoon and both seriously iojured. The^men were timbering on the main entry when the slate caught them,. They had been under the slate some minutes h«fore being discovered. Seth Littell found them aiid gave the alarm to others to help free them. Poehlein’s right knee was dislocated and the right ankle fractured and he waa scratched about the face. Davis' right thigh was broken, bis left elbow hurt and his entire left arm paralyzed. The men were removed to their homes as quickly as possible after they were gotten out from under the slate and given medical attention. They are both seemingly getting along nicél(^. It waa a narrow escape for them a« the fall was so large that they were being mashed to death. No one waa near them when the accident happened and but for an accident which sent Seth Littell along the entry where they were they would have met death. Both men are splendid young men of the community. Both are married. injured men were removed Wednesday to Evafiaville whete they wen iitn:ed in a hoejpital. I^wy were takesron ^ noon trate. The following disphtch from Peters burg was published in the Evansville Courier Tuesday:    “The    lost will of George Goodrid, an Englishman and a veteran of the civil war, was found this afternoon as some men were cleaning out an old com crib in the rear of the Goodrid residence in this city. E. P. Richardson, a lawyer of thia city, wrote the will and at the time made a duplicate of it. After Goodrid’s death the original will could not be found, and the duplicate copy would not stand in court. Without a will the property would have reverted to the widow. The will leaves $5,000 to the widow, $1,000 to Miss Lucy Hoggatt, .a niece, and $1,000 to Good Goodrid, a nephew, ‘ »and includes a number of lesser be--quests. The residue of the estate was to be divided between the widow, Uie niece and the nephew. Efforts bad been made to erase the names of the principal and the witneaaes off the will, but the ai{E«atureB are eligible, and the will waa entered for .probate at the clerk’s office thia afternoon, shortly after it was found. Goodrid came to this country from &igland, together witb < brother, inemrly life a»d«ettled here and simasaed/i feyrtune of $$0,000. H. K, WMteloek. cai^ of ^ CIti' State baalt baa b««n a^teted $dmIai•t»^p; ^ tba Cl^ The J. W. Powell blacksmith and machine shop was torn down this week and the work of building the new. Saints church started. The work of making the basement was begun Tuesday. A handsome structure will be erected facing the street to the school house on the alley. The new building will be a splendid addition to the town. It will have ample basement for the heating plant. If our local merchants would let the people know about the prices of their goods thru printers’ ink, as the foreign merchants do-by flooding the country with price lists, catalogues, etc., there would not be so many duped farmers or complaining merchants. The advertisers who put their goods before the people and keep them there are the ones who sell their goods. They must say when too late, “I would have duplicated that bill of goods, but they should have let the farmer who sent away and bought advertised goods of a foreign merchant know it before he bought. That’s the business of it. The town trustees met in regular monthly session Monday night but very little business was transacted aside from allowing the regular batch of claims. Claims allowed were as follows; First National Bank, interest, $1.50; John Wilder, marshal salary, $75.00; Public Utilities, street lighting, $56.66; town hall lighting for 3 months, $3.00; W. F. Risley, field examiners’ work for 1916-17. $16.00; G A. Hurst, for note given to buy plow and scraper, $30.50; McCord Garage, supplies and labor on fire engine $12.60; Charles Powers, labor on fire truck, $6.00; Obenchain-Boyer Co., repairs for chemical engines, $1.50; Fred Powers, labor on fire truck, $6.20; G. B. Kinman, labor on fire truck, $7.45; John Jones, two days work on streets, $11.40; E. McNeely, two days work on streets, $11.80; James Ferrell, two days work on streets, $4.80. - The Patoka river dredge case will be up again in the next few days. George H. Ward of Winchester, who waa appointed by the Governor to try the cause and turned it down after coming and qualifying, has been appointed by the Governor again. Under the old law the pay of the judge trying the cause was about $10.50 per day. The late legislature raised the pay to $25 per day. While the judge has not qualified it is presumed that he refused the job before on account of the pay and that he will now accept and try the cause unless set off by the petitioners for the ditch which is thought will not likely happen. Judge Ward has twenty days in which to qualify after which time he will be in charge of the case and will set the date for hearing. This will undoubtedly be one of the biggest law suits ever tried in Pike county. It is said to be one of the biggest ditch cases ever filed in Indiana. Jean & Snyder have been released on their contract on the Monroe township rock roads as has George Elkins on the Sugar Ridge road. The matter came before the county commissioners in session the first of the week and under the law passed by the late legislature these contractosrs have been released and a re review of the roads ordered. A review of the Clay township rock road was ordered and it was ordered advertised. A rock road waa ^ ordered advertised for bids in Jefferson township and one in Madison township. A re-review of the Morley Whitman rock road in Patoka township. Ora Kantz was appointed engineer with J. S. Barrett and Rufus W. Baaa as viewers. James W. Rumble resfgned as school fund appraiser for the second district and Grant Malott waa appointed to the place. A petition bearing three hundred fifty names was presented to the commissioners asking for an appropriation for a memorial building which is proposed to be bailt in some central location in Pike county at an estimated cost of $25,000. The pelitioa waa received by the board but not acted upon. The petition was at the im ■tance of the Pike County Memorial Society. Under the new law the unimproved roads of the county are the property of the county commisaion^.
