Most Effective Advertising.
That advertising is the most effect
ive which attracts the eyo and ap
peals to the brain. Strong adjectives
may be as much out of taste In an
advertisement as in a bit of more
aspiring literature. Exaggeration Is
always to be avoided. People nowa
days demand sincerity in all matters
of business. It is observable that al!
the big and successful advertisers are
moat careful as to tbelr statements
of fact. They realize that confidence
Is the key-stone in the arch of trade.
Their Luccess came of their jealous
regard for their work
