PROOF OF TRUE FRIENDSHIP
What More Could Be Asked of Any
Man Than the Sacrifice That
li Here Recorded?
There are various ways of evidenc
ing true friendship. Sorrow and suf
fering bring out the best in others, but
It Is our habit to be sympathetic and
not always does it prove that sympa
thy and friendship are akin. When a
man will lend you money without col
lateral he is Indeed a friend.
But we find our true friends in oth
er ways. The other day we w ere in a
hurry and we needed a hair cut. So
we boat It into our favorite barber
shop to find our favorite barber busy,
and a man ahead of us.
We were about to depart without the
trim we sorely needed, when the man
ahead of us spoke up:
"Ton always have the same barber,
"Yep." we replied.
"Well, I'm next for his chair, but
I'm in no hurry. You just go ahead
and take my turn. I'll wait."
There was friendship for you, and as
we thanked him for his kindness we
couldn't help remarking:
"Greater love hath no man than
this, that he will give up his place in a
barber shop for another." Exchange.

Advertising is the oil that keeps the wheels of industry and business running smoothly
A Newspaper's TWO
Sources of Revenue
UBSCltlPTIONS and advertising are the only sources of
revenue a newspaper has, and often the subscriptions
do not pay for the cost of white paper.
Advertising today, especially in newspapers, is the
greatest business getter there is. This is acknowledged
by men who know. People read advertisements in news
papers. They have been educated to do so. Every merchant in our
town ought to advertise. You remember the story about John Wana
maker. The first day he was in business his receipts were $24.G4. He
kept 04 cents and spent the $24 the next day in advertising. We all
can't duplicate this feat, but according to the best statistics available
three per cent of the gross sales should be put aside for advertising.
Possible you will say: "I don't need to advertise. I've been in
this town thirty yirs and everybody knows me."
Probably they do, but did you ever stop to think of the sales you
lose because your fellow competitor advertises? He may advertise the
same goods you have in stock, but the people don't know you have
them. The other fellow gets the sale because he advertises. And then
how much more business would you do if you did advertise?
We know of one merchant who advertised a lot of goods at 19
cents" a yard. They cost him 27 cents. Ho took a clean loss, but while
the sale was going on he could buy new goods at 12 cents. He put them
in with the other goods and the result was that he cleaned his shelves
of the old goods and he broke even on the deal. Advertsing and good
buying liquidated his stock without a loss.
We can't all be John Wanainakers, but we all can advertise in
proportion to our business. Results will bo sure if you advertise hon
estly and give service. A newspaper can bring people to your store,
but it can't make people buy your goods. Your clerks must do that and
it depends upon the service you give as to how successful your business
will be. "
What is done in the big cities can be done right here in this town,
if you will show the pep, give the service and advertise. Make business
good. You can do it through this newspaper.
