Few union soldiers and sailors j
of the Mexican war, the War o I

have availed themselves of their;
privileges under the act passed at I
the last legislature to exempt j
from taxation property to the val

According to Oscar Steelham

be many who would be glad to
take the soldier's exemption oath

their attention. He further sta'
ed that an extension of time to
June 1 will be granted that even

In writing ads to get the best
results I have often thought 1
would like to tell The Statesman
that to my positive knowledge
many would get better results If
they gave their address as well as
phone number. Why?
Because many who would buy
l.ave no phone. Often when thJ
advertiser is called up. central
says, "no answer," and by this
time the would-be buyer has pur
chased some place else or changed
his mind.
Then asnin. th price should
be stated; many times those who
i-dvertlse have bargains to offer,
but unless they give prices one is
apt to think, the price being om-
ilted. the article is high; many a
would-b"! buyer scans the adver
tisements for bargains.
Then again, the ad should not
be too sparing of description, as
cutting an ad too short to save
on the price hampers its working
power as a classified ad. The
articles should be as described,
loth for individual things listed,
and those advertised by ths

There seldom is a business transaction be

less time than it takes to dictate the average bus

Consider the time taken by correspondence

ness transactions.

made it possible to talk satisfactorily to any point
