The Entertainment for the Prince Will be Thorough ly national. Washington. Jan 20. - The com mitter charged with the arrange ments for the reception and entertainment of Prince -Henry to day decided that it would be impossible to yield to the requests of many citizens to have jthe Prince visit them.-" It is likely that beside New York, Washington and Niagara Falls, the journey will include Chicago -only, of the large cities. It was also decided, owing the tide to have the launching occur on the original date, February 25. This will necessitate two trips on the part of jthe Prince between New York and Washington, 7 1 The Prince v will come to ''Washing ton from New York, arriving here on the morning of 24th. ' He -will be met at the station by a handsome millitary escort and conveyed to the German embassy. ne wiu nexviait me xresiaent at the White House and the Pres ident will return ; his i call at the German - embassy. Some - j time Monday evening the presidential party nd1 the jlPrince will leave L Washington for ? $$er .York and thev will see .the launching at 10:30 o'clock 'Tuesdav mornin&r. This plan involves a return to Wash ington of the entire party and it is likely that on1 the 26th the Prince will be entertained at dinner at the White House. Onthe 27th Jie is to ' be one oi v tne company present at ther capitol when Sec retary Hay delivers the McKinley memorial address to Congress. After a few: social 'exchanges, the Prince, in; charge of the , reception committee, will start on ; a short tour, winding up at New "York in time to sail on the Columbia, on if .. . ..... March 8, for iSermany. It is part of the plan to have the entertainment afforded the Prince thoroughly national in cha racter, and that - the. participants shall not be limited to any one rain of blood or race. One means of attaining this result will be to make the reception 'as for mal as possible so that it 7 will be drawn upon official lines, and there will be a. considerable appearance of the military element where fea sible. - VALUE OF ADVERTISING. Kothmg Except the Mint Can Make ;4 r .Money Without it : i Many advertisers are driven ou of the field because aelf constituted authoriiies have led them 'toexpec too much. The amount of rubbish which a- glib solicitor 7 can some times i induce: a business man to believe is imply amazing, He is assured in; the most solemn and emphatic- manner that a certain mvestmeub in certain . iacmumo will infallibly bring him -profitl Advertising is representedaaif i wereifbundedf on' i . principles as immutable as" those of geometry. The victiiiNyiefds to the tempter andvnnda-after, baa .af nt his Pi I money, that advertising is about as intricate and ' uncertain as other branches of business! Vexed and disappointed, he. .puts advertising down as a fraud and men connected with it as ignoramuses or swindlers. This conclnsion :js unfair, but it is human. ; There is a world of truth in the dictum, attributed to Gladstone, that nothing except th!e mint can make money without abvertising. About the value of it in general there is no more doubt than about the rising of the sun. v But the result of an untried plan can no more be predictd than the amount of cloud in the sky when the sun rises tomorow.

Mr. Pritchard'a jaense of 7 toueh has been developed to 'a suprising degree. He makes baskets, tubs ahd chairs in addition to the farm work, in order to earn a livelihood. His chairs are all mfde from the best hickory, twhjch' he, himself, selects from the '.Woods and cuts. The chairs turned out7by him are very good and durable, - the seats being made of twisted and woven shucks. ,j H i'-- 1 - Mr. Prichard often comes to this city alone and can find his way un assisted to anyistore to" which he wishes to go. "v ' ' ' v ' r - Mr. Pritchard is much interested. in the Tab Heel's :' success, and is an intent -listener while members of his family read' therefrom.
