Record ojThe novel spectacle of a white woman suing acolored man for breach of promise of marriage is presented iii the case of Katherine McGroaty against John W Holland jr The latter also reverses the usual order of things by giving as his principle reason for declining marriage Difference in race religion andsocial positions The plaintiff who is 25 years old and lives at No 3942 Spruce street declares that Holland who lives at No 115 North High street on March 20 last promised to make her his wife and fixed the wedding day as July 6 At that time Katherine says she was ready and willing as she has been ever since to become Hollands wife but that he disappointed her and disregarded his promises She accordingly wants dam ages to the amount of 5000 and a capias was issued for Holland with bail fixed ate 200 Holland filed pleas of not guilty andnon assnpsit accompanied by an explanatory affidavit He declares that the plaintiff showed and expressed a high regard and liking for him and made it plain that wanted him to marry her Thesubject of marriage was freely discussed between them and Holland says he endeavored to con vince the young woman that itwas not advisable to form such a union becaus of their differences in race religion and social position In view of these circumstances he avers it is highly improbable thanything he said or his conduct was construed as a promise of

over the census year of 1S99 The Increase of capital Invested In agriculture since 1900 Is estimated at 2000000000 Banks In agricultur al states show a remarkable Increase in deposits 164 per cent In

ad vertising needs a cheerful philosophy to sustain him He needs nerve and faith and patience The time goes and the money goes and the returns linger Advertising Is the greatest force In modern business but It takes nerve to use it It Is hard for an advertiser to realize what It Is Ije pays for He draws his check for the 4000 page and the page doesnt look as If it were worth 30 cents It Is hard to project the Imagination Into a million homes and see the advertisement doing its work The advertiser doesnt pay for type and Inkandpaper He pays for an ef feet in peoples minds It is as intangible as air and as permanent as steer heams1t is almost as imperishable as time tallIIon forever Teach a man a word an idea a fact and he will never wholly lose it Your investment in the minds and memories of the people Is the safest thing you own The best asset of a business is a well known trademark Do you realize what that means It means that in the con volutions of the thousands or of

exported 30 000 000 or 40 000000 of gold in the qxcess of the im portations of yellow metal the con anydegree stIold ore some 80000000 in value more than was exported It is said that if it were not for the great stimulus in activity which business in this country has received during the last few years gold would be such a drug as to lead to its exportation as the commodity for which the Unit
