Mr. Forsyth was accidently drawn
intoa discussion of the subject with a
mercantile friend, who expressed em
phatic doubts whether advertising
benefited a man’s business at all, and
closed his side of the debate with the
common remark. “It’s all money
given to the aid of newspapers. No
body reads my adveaiisement or
thinks of it, or looks after it, except
your foreman and collector.”
Forsyth replied, ‘Let u9 test the
truth of the assertion. Sit down and
write out such an advertisement as I
dictate, and we will put it in the
smallest type the cases contain, and in

The next morning there appeared in
agate, without a bit of display, and in
the most out-of-1 he-way-place in the
paper, the following advertisement:
