A. Daniel and Misses Fannie Neely and Etta Baxter. Talks on Advertising. By Nels A Surprise. (copyrighted.) Advertising pays--if it is the right kind.

The best medium for the retail merchant is the local newspaper, but many of you give the matter little or no attention. Advertising with some merchants is a side issue, a donation to the paper; considered as a liability instead of a great big assets. I know that some of you fel. lows will spend two hours and a half trying to sell a twenty dollar bill of goods, and on the other hand will give a regretted ten minutes to writing a mighty poor advertisement that costs you five dollars. Be honest, you are just too tired or negligent to make this fine do some work.

For this amount you can talk forcefully to a couple of thousand people in a way that will attract them and make them know that you are selling the goods they want at the right prices. Any merchant who can talk his goods to a customer can learn to write advertisements with the pulling power. Bear this in mind -your advertisements should always do these three things. First, attract attention; second, hold attention and create interest; and third, leave an impression that will last for some time. An advertisement about one article that is well described and priced is worth more than an advertisement about a dozen things touched upon in a lot of generalities.

Most people of the community know what line of business you are in if you have been in town six months. Do not waste space and money telling them what they already know. If you handle stoves, tell them what kind, what you claim for them, what. advantages they have over other stoves, and the selling price. Do not crowd your space.

Make your advertisements talk--tell something the people will be interested in knowing. party was given here in town at the hall on the 14th by the Epworth League. The tables were beautifully decorated with red hearts and very tastefully arranged. Paper and pencils were furnished the gentlemen and they were required to write out proposals of marriage; the ladies to furnish a story of a broken heart and a prescription. Harve DeFord won the prize for writing the best proposal, Hattie Supple for writing the best prescription.

After their shock of stories and prescriptions, chapter one of a love story was started by Fred Sutton, and each guest added: a part to it until the story was complete- -a thrilling, heart rendling romance.
