THE LOS3 OF TUB ARCHER.
Report That One of the Boats Wan
Picked Up By Indians.
The many friends of Capt. Dawson, of
the British bark Archer, are beginning
to fear that all hands perished after the
vessel was abandoned on the west coast
of Vancouver Island recently. The hulk
which is In tow of the tug Pioneer, has
not reached port. It Is thought prob.
able that the tug will take her to Port
Townsend or Port Angeles, unless ar
rangements were made by the owners of
the British steamer Maude to tow her
to Victoria The Maude was the first on
on the scene. A terrible gale was rag
ing about the time the vessel was aban
doned, and for that reason fears are en
tertained that the men were unable to
erach the shore. In any event, It Is
likely to be some time before cny defi
nite news Is received, on account of the
country thereabout being Inhabited
chiefly by Indiana
A Victoria dispatch says that one of
the boats was reported to have been
picked up by Indians near Uculet. From
the appear uK-e of the wreck, when
found In Barclay Bound, It is evident
the trouble was caused by the shifting
of the ballast. Had tt ben properly

THE ART OF ADVERTISING
Novelty is the Hey to Success-Be Original
and Your fortune Is (Dade.
DOES wlvM-llHlnB pay? Ym n.e often
puzzle over this problem. Some
times you think It does, and then again
you are not certain.
There ore days when an attractive ad
vertisement Just "packs" your store
with trade, and Inquiries come dribbling
in for a month afterward for articles
advertised that day. Hut some days
the advertisement seems to fall flat. It
is on these days that your faith grows
shaky, and If you do not doubt the util
ity of advertising you blame the card.
If you write your own advertisements
and lose conlldence In yourself, you hail
better employ some one who makes ad
vertising Ills special business.
To write an original advertisement,
every day in the year, on the same
never-changing theme, is very much
like taking ten yards of dress goods and
making a new and entirely different
dress of it 3H0 times in succession. It
takes a clever head tu do either. He
must see the store side of the advertise
ment and the customers' sl.le of it, the
one as clearly as the other. Unwise ad
vertising can pull down trade and ex
haust your finances mure rapidly than
good advertising can build up the one
or add to the other.
Think of a house which, in the "busy
season," when everybody is buying cost
ly outer garments, wasting Its advertis
ing space on three cent and live cent
notions, often not mentioning their val
uable stock once in a whole week. It Is
like a sportsman who wastes his am
munition on sparrows when ducks are
flying overhead. The harvest time for
expensive merchandise Is at best but a
short month or two. The cheap, little
profit stulf, like the poor, we have nl
ways with us. If an advertiser does not
possess business wit,, along with literary
ability, he will never make a success of
his calling. AVe often see advertise
ments without the slightest literary
merit, written In faulty English and set
up atrociously, which nevertheless are
great advertisements great in their
power of attracting people. They were
full of buMnss, even though they lack
The kind of advertisements which
would prove a success fur one store
might not. do nt all fur another, even
though In the same line of business,
and perhaps located right next door.
The capacity for knowing his audience
must be Innate in the writer; so must
the business sense.
Remember there are other stores, Jus'
as good as yours, who sell at equally
low prices. Your only advantage and
it is yours If you take It Is to have
better advertising than they. This does
not necessarily mean larger advertising
or more costly, for it is not the size of
the space that tells, but what Is said
and how it Is said that attracts notice
and excites surioslty.
If you cannot spend $1,000 a week in
advertising, spend $:oo. If you cannot
spend so mucji, spend $lu0, and If your I
business wi) not aI!,.Vy more than $10 to
be so Invested, spend that, bo pot pas-
there Is no advertising except in a
large way. Onu might as well say that
a five-cent package of seeds from the
florist will not. grow as well as the same
seed bought In bushel quantities. Have
good seed and plant it In good soli, In
other words, write a good advertise
ment and put it In a good paper. Ten
dollars In The Astorlan will pay for 100
lines of display advertising, nonpareil
measurement One car. do more with
100 lines In The Astorian than with i00
lines in most other papers, because a
line In The Astorian means generally a
line of type, whereas those papers
which are printed in larger types, a line
of advertising display type w!J take up
twr. to ten line. ,.f ,;,r Tvor. i...re.

A little study will enable you to
evolve many other attractive ways of
setting up your ads. in The Astorian
type. There is hardly any limit to tho
combinations possible. Large type eato
space, but you are not obliged to use lb
in order to mr'-e a showy nd. in Th.1
Astorian. Lt.U ,e would advise you, U
using the plain type, to have your ad,
on those pages of The Astorian where
all advers. nre so set up, as then your
small ad. has an equal chance of being
seen. A plain ud. might be lost to.
view entlroly when printed alongside ol
fancy type neighbors. There the con
trast Is against you, but on the page
with other nds. printed in the same
type as yours the advantage of the
most attractive setting is yours If you
but choose to have it so.
The advertiser who has Ills eyes nnd
wits about him has his finger on the
public pulse and knows Its beat. In
cases of emergency his art and wit
may do wonders. Observe the unique
use which a Yankee advertiser makes
of the classics. This man had dog col
lars, name-plates and rubber stamps to
sell. It was a most unpromising theme
for what can one say of dog collars?
Here are some of the things he said;
IT IS SELDOM
IN THIS cultured city that we see signs
In the windows announcing that "Here
we sneak French." nr "Hero wo ut,.,it
German," &c. These signs are common
nuin mew lorn 10 san j? ranclaco. In
Boston, osvirig to the culture, it is taken
for irranted. without th niima vu n
engraving In any language, especially
on Dog Collars; also Door Plates and
Cadges, Medals, Stencils, steel and Hub-
iiur clumps, corporation seals, Uangles,
Uramls, Kibbon Hadges, &c. JOHN
SMITH, 2000 Wank street.
IT IS NOT
TO BE supposed that the Mahomnm.
dans look with favor upon the possibili
ty oi tne rise or a unrlstlnn power to
the south of Turkey and Egypt, und If
this shop did not fit out an expedition
for the relief of Stanley, It was solely
for the reason that we were so crowded
with orders for Door Plates that we had
no time to attend to the necessary de
tails. This we say in self-defense, as
the rumor has gone abroad that we
were favorable to the Mahommedans.
Also Badges, Medals. Stencils, Steel and
Rubber Stamps, Corporation Seals. Dog
Collars. &c. JOHN SMITH. ?MW RlanR
This hp said every day, each; time
using another Incident of past or cur
rent history, or quoting a different au
thor of ancient or modern times. Al
ways winding up with some absurd or
comical allusion to the universal end '
crying need for dog collars, name plates,
etc., and apparently proving the Impos
sibility of beipg happy in this world,
without them. Who with a ranlns
could resist these appeals? Who with
a front door would let It go bare; who.
Indeed, would write his name with pen
when a rubber stamp eould be had with
which to do it? Novelty is the great
charm ,ff ad vert!slng. Originality 1
