Nearly nine hundred million dollars of deposits are in the banks of the states which make up the principal field of the Kansas City Weekly Star. This territory includes Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Oklahoma, Indian Territory, Texas and Colorado.

Containing nearly one seventh of the population of the United States, these states raise over a third of the corn crop and a third of the wheat crop of the entire country and they possess more than a third of all the cattle and hogs in the country.

Over ten million people, whose banks hold nearly nine hundred million dollars, who produce eight hundred million bushels of corn and two hundred million bushels of wheat annually, and who possess sixteen million hogs and twenty-five million cattle, live in the Kansas City Weekly Star's territory.

Where is there another field with such resources ?

The International Advertising Association announce in their Bulletin No. 6 that the Trade Mark Bill, on which the special committee of Messrs. Smith, Steuart and Kramer have rendered special service, passed the House of Representatives without opposition on January 14th.

The Senate Committee were to give a hearing on this bill on Jan. 20th, but up to the time of going to press their action had not been learned. There is little doubt, however, that the bill will receive favorable action by this committee and its speedy enactment is confidently expected.

The matter of substitutions will soon be vigorously agitated. The I. A. A. has in preparation an article on the subject which will be sent broadcast through the press of the country, and much good is anticipated from the agitation which will follow.

The Poultry Annual of Farm and Home, Springfield, Mass.-their regular issue, dated Feb. 1, 1905—was elaborate, unique and interesting in every way. Regarding this issue the Phelps Publishing Company have this to say:

“This issue contains the announcements of 234 advertisers, representing space from full pages down to three lines. There is a total of 977 inches, or 13,678 agate lines. Not one line was taken at a cut rate, no rebates or rake-offs, simply to make a showing. Every advertiser paid our card rates, which gives him circulation at seven cents an inch per thousand.

So far as we know, no agricultural paper, either weekly, semimonthly or monthly, ever printed as much advertising in a single issue as is contained in The Poultry Annual. The nearest approach that we have record of was the November 15, 1903, issue of Farm and Home, which contained 64 Columns, or 10,752 agate lines. We are proud of our record, since it proves that our efforts during the past quarter of a century to give the farmers of the country an agricultural paper that stands for something, and advertisers a medium in which the element of failure to get profitable returns is reduced to a minimum, is most thoroughly appreciated."

The Locomotive Firemen's Magazine is recognized throughout America among railway officials and employes alike, as a thoroughly progressive and up-to-date railway technical educational magazine.

It was established in 1876 and has been published monthly since that time, It now has a circulation of more than 68,000 copies monthly, and has established for itself a popularity and prestige in the homes of railway men not enjoyed by any other publication in the field. The Magazine is printed on high-grade paper, 196 pages, and is profusely illustrated.

The advertising rates are net cash.

The Life of An Advertisement. Accounts of advertisements that have produced results long after they appeared in mediums have been published in Advertising Magazines. Here is an instance of a 272-inch advertisement bringing an inquiry twenty-four years after its insertion in the Rural New Yorker. This splendid Farm Paper is not one of the sort that the subscrib

use to build fires with. It is so ably edited that it is of permanent value to farmers, who read it carefully and preserve it for future reference.

Here is the letter that tells about an inquiry being received twenty-four years after an advertisement had been inserted in the Rural New Yorker:

SANDWICH, ILL., Jan. 3, 1905. Long-Critchfield Corporation, Publish

Who says it does not pay to advertise ? The advertiser should not look for immediate results either.

Here is a case which has recently come to our notice:

A farmer in New York State wrote us for prices on one of our small Corn Shellers, and in replying, sending printed matter, etc., we asked what had brought our machine to his notice—if he had run across one of our advertisements, and, if so, in what paper. His reply is received today and with it he sends us

a copy of the Rural New Yorker of June 26th, 1880, in which appeared a small single column 21/2-inch ad of the Sheller and this, he states, is what brought out the inquiry.

We give you the item thinking it might be of interest to you.

Yours very truly,

A. E. Woodward.

Uncle Sam is on the lookout for publications that carry

advertisements of guessing schemes. Recently, the Herald and Republican, two weekly papers published at Angola, Ind., were denied admission to the United States mails on account of advertisements of a local firm offering a box containing forty dollars in bills to the person holding a certain lucky number. The postoffice authorities claim that this kind of advertising is a violation of the ruling applying to lotteries.
