be judged as a study of business.
Y'ou can get some conception of the
commercial meaning of newspaper ad

The Knterpiist Is In receipt of un
Illustrated edition of the llak- r I'ity
Herald and It Is a fine advertisement
fur the actlve.energetlc town of I'ak

gets goes out through Its local news
paper work, and If the cltUens of ev

home paper could lund more settlers,
accomplish better Industrial results,
bring In more manufactories, and de
velop the country around faster than
any other advertising could possibly
accomplish. The home paper is your
means of publicity and If you reiiMi
ed It you could double your popula

fully. There is always something new
coming to the surface In the way of
sports. The latest proposition in re-
