self? No. 5, Is it considered public spirited
to try to suppress the saloon business in a

IIow Advertising Affects Busi
nes. Tiie man who advertises his biibi
ness, if what he offers for sale is honestly
what he represents it to be or what it ought
to be, is constantly assisted in his business
by those who "have been attracted to hirn
and tested him. A buyer has read his
advertisement, and gone to his store or
work shop, warehouse, whatever it may
be, and tried what was recommended.
If it has satisfied him he is pleased and re
commends, it to his neighbor, who is likely
to go to the same place and tell his neigh
bor in turn. And thus little rills started
hy his advertisement flow in upon him
from all side., and the current ot his busi
ness grows stronger and wider and more
rapid, and he prospers and grows rich, all
because "strict attention in business he
added judicious advertising, llut for this
he might have lingered on in the commu
nity lor years and his business would
scarcely nave been heard of.
