Nearly half of the world's production of paper is used for printing purposes. These figures indicate the progress of modern civilization, It is curious to notice, however, that Russia, classed among the civilized nations, is not mentioned anywhere in the calculation.-Erchange.

The Sucker Industry A mining stock swindle, with newspaper advertising accessories, has just been laid bare by the arrest in Goldfield, Nev., of the secretary of the chief swindler. The latter is Dr. J. Grant Lyman, of New York, credited with obtaining $300,000 in thirty days. Salt Lake City, Chicago, Milwaukee and New York have been the victims of a fictitious market on a stock promoted by Lyman. Lyman went to Goldfield about two months ago when the Greenwater copper boom had just started, and over the name of the Union Securities Company announced the incorporation of the Boston Greenwater Copper Company.

These announcements he made in the Goldfield prints and in advertisements which appeared in the large cities. At the time he telegraphed to mining stock brokers throughout the Union offering them stock in the corporation at 3772 cents per share on their guarantee that they would not dispose of same at less than 45. He shipped large blocks of stock to confederates in New York, Chicago, Salt Lake City and San Francisco, and instructed them to offer the stock to brokers at 50 cents per share. Coincidentally he telegraphed each and every one of the brokers, offering them 60 cents a share for all the Boston Greenwater Copper they could deliver. The brokers eagerly gobbled up all the Boston Greenwater offered at 50, then they attached the stock to drafts and shipped it to the Union Securities Company here in Goldfield. As fast as the stock arrived payment was refused on one ground or another.

Lyman was formerly the owner of a racing stable in New York. He was expelled from the New York Stock Exchange in 1899 after the exposure of his connection with the International Zinc swindle. He placed large lines of advertising of the Union Securities Company through the Tillman agency of Pitts. burg. He owes newspapers upward of $150,000. The mining stock was sold in hundreds of cities but had no merit. It is estimated that Lyman got away with $300,000.- Printers' Ink.

200,000 Buyers Waiting For You

If you knew that, on a certain day, a procession of 200,000 people -- each of whom was a buyer for a good family_would begin to pass in review before your place of business, and that each one of them was ready to listen to a short story about your goods, wouldn't you hire a corps of leather-lunged barkers to give them hot talk about what you had to sell ?

Of course you would ! Maybe you would do some
barking yourself, and you'd see that each one that couldn't
be persuaded to buy on the spot, was presented with some
good, trade-enticing printed matter.

T Now, while it is not likely that such a procession will
soon literally head your way, the opportunity of talking to
200,000 heads of good families, to much better purpose, is
presented to you in the advertising columns of
