This is the best opportunity that we know

most excellent cut, representing the dif

celebration; and' also an. extensive gen

tournaments to take place in that city

Shore, and success is well merited.
jIt is not the polished orator
who shapes public opinion, but the quiet
editor, whose words go out to the public
ear without parade or ceremony. The
orator may please the ear or tickle the lan-t
cy; but the editor does mere: He satifies
the mind, and carries to every household a
fund of knowledge. The orator, by burn
ing words and impassioned eloquence,
may drive men to a sense of duty; bat an
editor if he be true to his pro legion, at
tracts men by the presentation of his
thoughts which appeal to the nobler qual
ities of head and heart. The words of the
orator diop from the lips and are lost-,
while the words of the editor drop from
tbe press, and like coined money, pass for
what they arc worth; if pure gold in the
truths conveyed, the pass current every
where. Eor good or evil, the editor
wields a powerful influence. He can exalt
or debase a community. He can advance
public corruption. How important, then,
that the editor should be a good man, and
that all papers that convey correct senti
ment to the public ear should receive lib
How Advertising Affects Busi
ness. The man who advertises his busi
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 him
and tested him. A buyer has read his
advertisement, and gone to his store or
workr shop, warehouse, whatever it may
le, 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
by his advertisement flow in upon him
from all sides, 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. But for this
be might have lingered on in the commu
nity lor years and his business would
scarcely have been heard of.
An Editor's Appeal. As the report
that we are very wealthy has gone abroad
among our subscribers, and has made
them awful slow about paying up, think
ing, doubtless, wedo not want the money,
we hasten to say the report of our wealth
is false in every particular. If ocean
steamers were selling at a cent a dozen,
we could not make the first payment on
a canoe. The lightning of poverty has
struck us square, and had it not been lor
an armful of ha3T which our devil man
aged to steal from a blind mule, our
family mould be without a mouthful
to eat at the present moment. Is
not this a sad picture, and can you de
linquent subscribers look upon it without
feeling the coin rattle with indignation in
your pockets. "We do not like to dun you
but we must if you fail to take the hiut.
"It Pats to Advertise." This is true in
every department of business, and no one ap
preciates its truth more fully than S. H.
Thompson. Soiue time since he received the
Agency, for this county, of the Cunningham
''Garden City Clipper Plow," and inimediate
iy advertised the same in our paper. Green
B. Smith, Ksq.. a patron of the Gazette, saw
the advertisement and forthwith rushed to
Thompson's and purchased four of these cele
brated plows which at onco have sprung into
popular favor. Is'o mater how fjod and valu
able an article may be, a merchant or dealer
may koeo it upon his shelves, or in his store
for months, or even years, and but few will
know anything of its good qualities, unless he
advertises, h or years Air. Thompson carried
on business here, and spent but little for
advertising. Within the past two years his
, business has increased nearly double, and he
attribute it to judicious advertising. If you
want to thrive in business, advehtisk Cor
