The merchant who does not advertise is like the fellow who throws a ki;s
to his sweetheart in the dark -he knows what lie is doing but no one else does.
Here is one for the fellow who thinks he does not have to advertise be-
cause he lias been in business so long that everyone knows him while he is
keeping quiet about his merchandise, the catalogue houses and mail order con-
cerns are getting acquainted with his customers. You notice they keep right
on advertising, going after the orders and g.tting the business the local dealer
ought to corral. Good advertising is a magnet that draws trade.
Wake up Mr. Oldtimer. Although you have been in the community so
long that you are a land mark, so long that dome folks with grown children count
you among their earliest recollections you need to advertise just the same Have
you heard of any big store in the city that has stopped advertising because they
are so well known? Keeping everlastingly at it brings success.
Some of you dealers waste so much money in misdirected advertising.
You pay for space on a hotel placard that is read by a lot of traveling men who
do not trade with you. You allow some advertising fakir to lmrnswoggle you
into buying space in a program, directory or book that is not worth one tenth
tlm price you pay for it. Money you spend in this way would purchase a lot of
good space in your local newspaper that is read by a thousand or more people
who are your prospective customers.

thought on any subject higher
than that of drawing their pay.
There is need and urgent need
fora law which will put our
schools bn a more permanent1
basis and attract a higher grade
of teachers and allow them to
teach one school for more than a
single term. One way to do this
is to allow the teacher to contract
for a number of years, or until a
change was deemed desirable.
Let the teacher become a part of)
the community life. Let. the
pupils know that the teacher of
