The Ads That Pay.
Ads that are effective are
the ads that are simple and
filled with common sense. The
common sense of the advertis
er comes into play in the pre
paration of every ad, and the
more ads he prepares the more
experienced he becomes. It is
the experienced advertiser
after all who appreciates the
value of newspaper advertis
ing, knows how to advertise.
and writes the ads that count.
If a merchant is going to
advertise there are but three
things for him to put in his
ads name the article for sale.
tell why the article is good to
have, and then say that he
An ad should catch the eye
of the reader. This can be
done by so preparing the ad as
to have it easily distinguished
from other ads in the paper.
It is up to the advertiser or
merchant to lay out his ads,
and then he puts his own taste
and ideas into his ads. By
continually studying this phase
of his advertising and putting
his best ideas into practice he
will find that his ads will grow
Ads must interest by ap
pealing to the intellinenc of
the people. For instance let
us illustrate a good way to ad
vertise soap. To make the
soap ad interesting and 0 n
vey information we might
show the value of cleanliness,
use and misuse of soap, value
of this paticular kind of soap,
how it is made and the ingre
dience it contains, and wherein
it excels other kinds of soap.
In this way we secure the at
tention and interest, and if
the soap can stand the test the
ad will be convincing.
The attractive, interesting
and convincing ads are the ones
that sell the goods. They are
the telling ads and those that
was a very beneficial one in every
respect except in the one most
important feature: The lack of
time in which to notify those
most vitally interested of their
coming. Dean Cordley of the
Agricultural College and his
companions would have found an
entirely different reception had
it been possible to let the people
of the various localities know of
their intended visit. As it was
much of their time has been lost
not entirely lost, but much of the
real benefits were not received
by those who should have; receiv
ed them by lack of publicity.
These hurry visits are always
welcome but if our friend Chap
man and those interested would
ever remember that our mail
service is round-about and our
wire service somewhat compli
cated they would really do this
"FLYING SQUAD" VISITS HARNEY CO.
(Continued Iron Bret pagi I
A short run brought the party
I to city of Harriman in time to do
' full justice to a bountiful and
well prepared and served dinner
I at the hotel. Here a number of
people were met and Mr. Hates
secured the promise of Dr. H.
Denman and Howard Foss that
they would attend the Cenrral
'Oregon Development convention
'as representatives from the east
lern section of the valley. Aftt r
1 luncheon the party was conduct
ed by Messrs Denman and Fuss
! to a small experimental sub-sta-Ition
about a mile east of Han i-
man. Here on a tract of land

This sub-station and the well

on the homestead of William II. j
Leech which was visited on trie!
route from Harriman to Laven
was a surprise and revelizalion
not alone to the straflger but to
the old pioneer of Harney county.
John Loggan remembered this
section as thought to be fit only
as a smooth open place for cut
ting out stock in the big round
ups, and in later years Dr. nib
bard considered its chief value
in being a good place to stretch
out on and shoot geese as they
flew from the Lakes. In this
section condemned in the U. S.
Geological reports in which the
homesteaders advised and warn
ed irom seining on are today
found some of the best fields of
grain in the valley.
A short stop was made at
Lawen where a goodly number
were interviewed and the nice
garden of William Cray was in
spected. The Indian laborers clearing
sage brush on the Weittenhiller
.section and their temporary
camps were an item of interest.
The fine field of new seeding of
alfalfa of C. E. Mcl'heeters is
certainly one to be proud of. He
has secured a splendid stand and
it has made an exceptional heavy
growth for this season of the year
Standing in the field Dean Cord-
ley was heard to remark to Mr.
Foss of the O.-W. K. & N. Co.
that his company could not build
into Harney valley unv too soon
for they would have all the local
business they could handle.
Of course the important fea
ture of the trip was the visit at
the Harney County Fxperiment
Farm. A thorough inspection was
made of the entire tract and the
different experiment crops, met
hodn etc. were plainly and intelli
gently explained by Mr. Brcit
haupt and Mr. Ieedy. The writ
er will not undertake to describe
this farm or what it demonstrates
for no nuch brief description will
do it justice. It and its results
belong to the people ot Harney
County and it is the duty and
privilege of all citizens to visit
the farm, study its lessons at
firsthand and make use of the
facts so obtained.
