who persistently refuse to
advertise in any nwspajjer,
and usually content themselves
with subscribing to single
one, and that as a rule, as old
fogish in its ideas as its non
advertising patrons. When
such people are approached for
an advertisement, which may
return if$ cost1' ten or a hun
dred fold, they have a stereo
yped reply, 4We never adver
tise; our business is large
enough, and we don7t care
about extending it." And yet
these same men, whenever
their interests are threatened
or attacked by injurious legis
lation, are foremost in begging
the aid of the press, and "im
ploring" and its "influence" in
defeating the obnoxious meas
ures. It never, possibly occurs
to them that the influence
which can avert or change leg
islation, is not less powerful in
directing the currents of trade
to those houses most deserving
of it by their superior enter
prise, intelligence and liberal-

the tides that ebb and flow; if
they do not increase their bus

human nature all over to fol

We frequently hear non-advertisers
complain of trade gradu
ally decreasing, and of old cus
tomers shortening orders, or
withdrawing altogether. In
fact, the buyers, in such cases,
are better otf than the sellers,
because they have ascertained
through advertisements in the
press with whom it is most
profitable to deal.
In proof ot these assertions,
let the non-advertising class
peruse the papers and they
will una the advertisements 01

cessful rivals in trade filling
their columns. If they desire
furl her proof, let them try the
effect of a little judicious ad
vertising on their own account.
As the old saying is, "The
proof of the pudding is in the

as well try to dispense with
the railroads, steamships, tele
graph and all other great de-
elopmentof modern civiliza
tion as with advertising.
