Kind of Advertising
Upon embarkitiR in business
the tirst problem that faces the
merchant is how to get custo
mers. He starts out after
business. That is advertising.
He personally solicits trade or
adopts some other means of
advertising his business. Hut
one thing is certain, if any
business is ever built up it is
built up through the medium
of advertising. Every business
man must admit this, or why
not start a business under
ground and the proprietor sit
down waiting for trade to come
to him? A well kept store in
a good location, stocked with
good goods at reasonable prices
is an advertisement. A mer
chant cannot hide his light
under a bushel and be a success.
He must advertise.
There are various ways of
advertising, and for the sake
of convenience and in the order
of their importance we give

the merchant personally

vertisingWhere the merchant

Advertising Where through

all other means of publicity
effort is made to influence the
There is no denying the ad
vantage to a merchant in per
sonally soliciting business,
either visiting prospective
customers personally or writ
ing them personal letters.
These are very effective ways
of advertising, and at the same
time very expensive ways of
advertising. Newspaper ad
vertising is the next best
means of advertising and,
price considered, it is by far
the best advertising.
"long drawn out" process to ex

who are building into the terri

absolute safety to the investors.
The people of the territory are
in a mood to give moral support
to any concern able to finance
the scheme and it would appear
nothing is more attractive.
Thousands of acres may be
brought to profitable cultivation

will take time enough to get the

idea of forming an irrigation
district seems too slow for con

ment and privately constructed
are convinced that private capital
will move faster and prove more
satisfactory than the government.
This was demonstrated on the

jects in Idaho where the two are
adjacent and may be observed by
With local people united on

Importation of beef he is buld

benefit. The wool man has been
a plaything in the hands of an
organized band of buyers. The
take part which ends after a more
or leas strenuous controversy by
both becoming engaged, but the
interval is very interesting.
Tomorrow night the usual four
reels all of them fine. "The
Boob" shows experience of a
country boy with a stranded
sales have been but an excuse i theatrical company -it is worth
for petty larceny. The woolman
has been told that his wool was
too good, too clean, too dirty or
too much or too little of it or that
it might be on the free list or
some such ridiculous excuse offer
ed to depress the mnrket. There
is some competitive buying. The
buyers have their "Rub.'B"
marked, and the sales for the
woolman is a tragedy but a rural
comedy for the buyers. The fact
is the market needs and must
have the wool and meat products.
The supply is short, the only
thing it being long on is the
buyer's pessimistic talk. The
stockman is regarded as legiti
mate prey. If he ships hogs to
market the buyer says they are
too large or too small, too fat or
too clean, too young or too old.
The shipper is docked from every
direction, and when all other
excuses have been exhausted,
they say, "Well, the market has
slumped." The shipper knows
when the market slumps while
the consumer is never conscious
of it. It may slump to the ship
per and be raised to the con
sumer all at the same time.
There is double the money made
in meat between the stockyards
and the consumer than there is
between the range and the stock
yards. It is a great game. The
stockmen are the checkers on the
board while-the buyers, jobbers,
manipulators and transportation
companies move them around at
will. Kvery time a shipier
touches the market he comes in
contact with a system that is as
finely organized as the works of
a Howard watch, while he is
just a cog or a broken spring.

A great deal has been said
about the high price of meat.
From the standpoint of the con
sumer the talk is based upon a
just grievance. It is not to be
understood, however, that the
stockman is reaping all or even
his just proportion of the high
price. The cattlemen have been
getting a good price. The market
is shifting without cause. Buyers
are using all of their ingenuity
to depress the market. They
have predicted dire results for
the market just because some
little beef was shipped into the
country. Many excuses are given
to scare the cattle men when the
truth of the matter is that the
conditions do not warrant any
thing of the kind. Only a few

wool sales at

a success, about one and a quarter
million pounds of wool being sold.
Among the Harney county men
who disposed of their clips were

states the sale there was not so
