A LONG DRIFT By Science Service Light buoy number 9 broke loose from its moorings in the Indio chan- nel of the Plata river, Argentina, on July 3, 1918. It was recovered by Aus- tralian authorities about 100 miles north of Freemantle, West Australia, on June 29, 1923. The drift was across the South Atlantic ocean, past the Cape of Good Hope, and across the whole In- dian. ocean, a total distance by the shortest route of 8700 miles. This re- calls the similar drift of the figure- head of the ship "Blue Jacket." The vessel was burned at sea near the Falkland Islands, on the South Atlan- tic coast of Patagonia, on March 9, 1869. The figurehead drifted ashore near Freemantle, where it was found December 8, 1871. These drifts illus- trate the easterly movement of water in the Southern Ocean.

By advertising you sell to several hundred people at one time mstead of to the single individual. Advertising does not belong to the reahn of magic. It is ability to talk of the product in plain, honest and straightforward terms that ap- peal to the reason, and desires of the people whose trade is sought. How do you advertise? There are no end of ways in which you may advertise; there is the bill-board, the circular, the poster, the window display, the circular letter, the personal letter, by word of mouth, and the newspaper, the best method of them all. What does advertising do for you?--All advertising is in- tended to create good will for the product or service adver- tised. Your advertising should create good will for your store throughout your trading aera and thereby increase the volume of your business or your annual turn-over.
