THE MAN WHO ADVERTISES.
The man who advertises is aggres
sive and progressive. He Is the one
: who doe3 most to build up his com
munity. In this he may incur the
ill-will of hi3 non-progressive compet
itors, but he doas the business and
sells the goods. He is the booster
and not the knocker. While he may
be doing well he believes in doing
I better. While in business he will
work it for all there is in it. He
is neither penny wise nor pound fool
ish. The money spent in advertis
ing is not thrown away, nor wasted
and the advertiser knows It. Every
dollar spent In Judicious advertising
yields large returns. The man who
never advertises but sits around and
grunts and growls at his successful
competitors and kicks and knocks at
the town does not corral the trade.
Trade is like everything animate, it
likes coaxing and needs to be
sought. Business Is greater than It
seems. It) possibilities infinite. Suc
cess depends upon management and
not locaMty. The world Is wide and
after a man has corralled his own
country there are 12,500 miles left
In either direct! :n.
