S?A good advertiser particularly
puts, hi sww--,viwlow.s into the neivs
paKr. J62rMost people "take a look at the
advertisements." If they read those of
whv will thev not ec
irls cnt3 om to print advertise
imnts. than to send out salesmen. A
giod wlvertisement is seen and read by
more ieople in one day. than most sales
men call ou in a year.'
MiAii advertisement tells its own
story. It makes no mistakes. a a solici
ts might do. ami states exactly what
tin merchant wants to say, neither more
nor kss. Advertisements are honest
ami faithful servants.
Sr"Do hogs pay?" asks an agricul
tural eorrcsjMMMleiit. We know of some
tnat don't. They subscrile for a iper,
read it for a few years for nothing, and
then send it tack to tlie publisher with
the P. M.'s inscription. arefued. Such
Ihmis as timt p:iy nothing to anybody, if
t-hcy can Ihdp it.
jr-c"CuKHls speak for thoiuselves,"
.lit it is only after they are bought that
thci en n do so. An object in advertis
ing is to induce jM-ople to buy them and
tt them. If goods speak for theiu
Hlics. a gMMl advertisement may also
jiak for the giMls.
TEffSonie men can see things only
retrosiKctively. Instead of looking for
ward to what the might do they" only
look back to what they might have done.
Tliey learn from experience, after it has
become a little late in the day. Such
men are the non-advertisers. "Dook
f.imiers" were once despised by the self
called "pra-tieai" fanners, but when the
latter saw the formers crops, they
changed their minds.
lf-r? l Mill (lutllir tmrtfi lwulr1t
business without advertising. No doiibt
the exciting elections, the times of war
or iest!leiice, or any of those many
causi's which create dull terms of busi
ness .' These must be calculated for and
discounted if you would bridge them
over. One must make more than he
needs, to make a fortune, and advertis
ing is a powerful auxiliary in money
crN o man should deprive his wife
and family of a good local paper.
They do not get or.t from home to learn
the news as does the husband and father,
and the paper serves to relieve the other
wise lonely house of his absence. It is
the worst lMtssible enconomy to deprive
the family of a pleasure so"easi!y and
cheapl prwurcd. And yet there are
those who say that they are too poor to
take a paper; but they are not to poor to
spend twenty times the price of a paper
every day for whisky and tobacco.
