AN EVANGELIST’S STORY
“I suffered for years with a I ron-
ehial or lung trouble and tried vari-
ous remedies but did not obtain per-
manent relief until I commenced
using One Minute Cough Care,"
writes Rev James Kirkmnn,evangel-
ist of Belle River, 111. “I have no
hesitation in recommending t to all
sufferers from maladies of this kind."
One Minute Cough Cure affords
immediate relief for coughs, colds
and all kinds of throat and lung
troubles. For croup it is unequall-
ed. Absolutely safe. Very pleasant
to take, never fails and is really a
favorite with tlie children. They

HAVE YOU HORSES?
If you have, you want them
cared for and properly attended
to. In the matter of horse-
shoeing the greatest care and
skill should be employed.
El Reno is fortunate in having
an establishment which gives its
entire and exclusive attention to
horse-shoeing. VV. A. Tobey
(formerly King & Tobey) is pro-
prietor of the shops, and horse-
shoeing is done scientifically, ar-
tistically and skillfully and all

A careful reading of the follow-
ing clippings with regard to ad-
vertising may be useful and im-
pressive to merchants and others
who are now about to embark on
another year's business. Advertis-
ing is an art, and it’s a money
maker for the judicious advertiser,
who really knows how to attract
the attention of the buying com-
WHY ADS ARE READ.
An observant, person remarks that
"tin1 public lilies as well to read inter-
esting matter in the advertising
columns as in the news columns.”
There is nothing surprising about
this, since tlie facts which are adver-
tised have a direct personal interest
so the public. The advertiser offers
to the people only such things as Iho
people lie si, and about t e character
and prices of which they want infor-
mation. A persistent advertiser is
bound to win the attention of all
WHO IS AT FAULT.
The fakir who thrives on snap ad-
vertising schemes could not exist ex-
cept by toleration of business men
who know that the only form of ad-
vertising that pa s full returns is
newspaper advertising, but who are
willing to be persuaded into constant
experiments. The community whose
business men support tlieir news-
papers most liberally is the com-
munity that gets ahead of its com-

You are advertising yourself and
store, and nothing should be omitted
that won d increase the attractive-
ness Polite clerks, with accompany-
ing manners, are great helps. Many
poor people may be among your
visitors, hut he sure that the same
degres of politeness be accorded
them that you would bestow upon
tiie rich. In these times, and for
that the matter at all times, there
should he shown equal respect ansi
consideration forall. Tha character
of your store is what you make it;
its reputation depends upon what tlie
people think and say about it. If
the reputation it receives among
the people is good, you have succeed-
ed in widening your range of trade,
but. if it is the contrary, no system
of advertising *411 give it a standing
among the people of the community.
A reputation for fair and polite
treatment neatness and orderly ar-
rangements, flue goods and good
quality, is a thing much desired by
every retailer.-Clothier and Furnish-

CAN AFFORD TO ADVERTISE.
A successful St. Louis merchant
says that any man who can afford to
open a store can afford to advertise.
“Advertise," is his advice, “even
if you can take but two inches of
space in a leading newspaper. Fill
your two inches in a way to make
them a feature of the paper. Make
your ‘ad’ a daily bulletin of your
■ business—a news item from your
i store."—Philadelphia Record.
