The best tonic In the world for a dull
Feaaon la trade is liberal and thought
ful advertising. When trade Is brisk,
people do not have to be encouraged to
buy: they do that uuturully. It Is when
they are not hunting for bargains that
the well-prepared advertisement enlists
their Interest and sets the sluggish cur
rent of trade In livelier motion.
As to Sidewalk Cleaning.
THE SCOLDING of the bllloifs
Times over the condition of
the sidewalks offsets the
inurinuriugs of the citizens
who have been notified to clean their
walks or go before a magistrate, la Its
easerness to work up partisan capital
against tho elty administration, the
Times damns It for what It does do and
then for wlial It doesn't. Now as a
matter of fact, the sidewalk-cleaning
ordinance had not been enfoiced for
years until this winter. II is being en
forced now In earnest, as the Times
very well knows; and a lot of people
are complaining because It Is.
We do not think much or the ordi
nance. For purposes of safety la walk

he preferred to one with stieaks of ice
and snow alternating with stiips ot
bared llagstone. U is next to impos
sible to get snow and Ice off a sidewalk
after they have once become well
trodden under foot. The snow itself
makes a. lets slippery surface than the
scraped stone, that can never be cleaned
entirely during lteezlng weather.
But the ordinance is plain and un
niistukable. H notifies the property
owner to clean, and clean he must. it
ho thinks it would be better to leave
the snow on he must pocket that
thought until occasion offers for him to
give councils the benefit or It. The city
officials are enforcing, not making, the

Not Worth the Cost.
12C13NT cabinet changes, some
of them largely dictated by
considerations of economy.
have levived the question,
Are our cabinet ministeis adequately
paid? It is a well-known fact that
more than one useful public olllclal,
alter long years of devotion to public
Interests, daring which private oppor
tunities have been neglected, have
been driven at last to rctiic because of
their Inability to hitstaln the seeming
ly inevitable expenses, chiefly of a so
cial nature, icsultlng from their posi
tions. Harper's Weekly, In discussing tills
theme, says with some aptness: "It Is
not the guests worth asking who make
the way of the entertainer hard; it is
the guestH not worth It: those who
bring nothing; to the feast of reason:
who have only the clothes on their
backs, and the money In their pockets.
They do not propose to impart either,
and they leave their host poor Indeed
when they go away. Vet these are
the guests who are the most dllllcult,
the most exacting, the most expensive.
It Is they who at tho free-lunch coun
ters of hospitality are critical and un
grateful. They contribute nothing but
their presence, which, drolly enough,
"society is often willing to hlie at their
own figure, Tho guests who really con
tribute something, who have dona
something, aie something, can say
something, are easy to be pleased, and
they lighten tho burden of entei tabl
ing Indefinitely to the host by enter
taining one another."
The solution to the Washington so
cial problem proposed by our contem
porary Is that our men and women in
public .position shall simply show the
courage of their convictions by cut
ting out the extravagances nuw In
painful evidence at the national capi
tal and by recurring to the more mod
est and democratic social methods of
tho past. No doubt this Is more easily
said than done; but to do It Is not Im
possible, and our history Is rich In In
stances In which men of the greatest
value to the public service huvo sup
ported themselves and their families

The Times makes a lame excuse for

The Practical Side.
T II lOltlC Is only one permanent
solution of the South Afri
can problem, and thut Is In
a federated South Africa.
Mvcn had the Hocr war not come, that
would come In the nature of things,
and come in a few years. The Uoer
war Interrupts Its coming hut makes
It more thuu over necessary. South
Africa, after the present devastation,
cannot become a willing British de
pendency. The chasm between the
races, wide before, Is now unbrldg
able save on the basis of a co-equal
citizenship, in a commonwealth to
which both shall have contributed
American svmpathy with the strug
gling Boots is not only natural but
commendable. It is not confined
among those who sympathized with
tho Uoer position at the beginning of
the existing lamentable controversy.
It has become vulversal. Kven in
England, among men who are not dis
loyal to their own country or to Its
flag while unfurled In war, It prevails
largely and is Increasing. It could not
be otherwise In view of the marvelous
fortitude and devotion which the Doers
have shown an exhibit without a su
perior In history.
Tlint sympathy should not expend It
self In fruitless denunciation of Great
Britain or In Impossible demands upon
the neutral government of the United
States. That would be meiely a de
plorable waste of energy, at a time
when the Interests of humanity call
loudly for intelligent and wisely di
rected action. The hand of England
cannot he lifted fiom the Transvaal by
resolutions passed in the United
States. But there aru thousands of suf
feilng Uoer prisoners in Hiltlsh con
centration camps who can be lelieved
by American benevolence, and there
are other thousands of Boer widows
and orphans whose lot can be made
moie chceiful than it is. These things
can be done by the American people
without objection from England and
without embarrassment to the govern
ment at Washington, What Is more,
they can be achieved; they represent
something possible and substantial In
the lino of humanitarian effort.
It is encouraging to notice that the
best public opinion in this country is
awakening to the practical opportuni
ties for showing its sympathy with the
stalwart followers of Kruger unit Be
