Editor Islander : Baseball has given way to football, and hunting has displaced fishing and the sportsman has laid aside tem- porally the rod for the gun. The Hot Stove League will probably continue its winter sessions and thrash over again the old, old story of suitable tackle. It is a grand old institution and has converted many a fish hog into an expert angler. Would that something of the kind .could be used upon the scatter -gun fraternity, but I am afraid it is not to be. Speaking of guns and ammunition. I realize is a little out of your line of business, nevertheless there is something in common in the line of true sportsman- ship, and it is only through your val- uable paper a chance for me to get out of my system the utter disgust and contempt I have for the pump and au- tomatic shotgun--to say nothing of its owner. Almost daily now we will see in the newspapers a picture of a limit of doves, ducks or quail hanging over the shoulder of some expert shooter. Do you notice also in that picture the beautiful featherweight, double 16 or 20 guage gun ? You certainh, do not! It is forever that old reliable corn- sheller or the deadly and crippling au- to~natie. The least the hunter might have done would have been to borrow a double-barrelled gun for the picture's sake; his vanity would have shown up the same without the hideous feature of the meat-getting implement. Truly there is an excellent opening for an- other Hot Stove League right here. What the 2x4 rod is to the 3-6 rod, so is the pump and automatic to the 16 and 20 gua~e shotgun. Heavy rods are barred in light tackle fishing clubs, and likewise is the pump-gun in all sportsmen's duck clubs in Southern California. At the trap the pump gun is used ahnost exclusively; it is strong shooting gun and points better, but only one cartridge is used here, but in the field,--well, that is another story. The number of hunters and fish- ermen is increasing amazingly each year, and it is becoming a serious problem for the Fish and Game Com- mission to keep lakes and streams sup- plied with enough fish for all, but to keep up the supply of game is more difficult, hence the only result can be smaller bag limits and shorter open seasons. Several states have tried to legislate the pump and automatic out of business, aml most all sportsman's magazines are strong for the conser- vation of game. In picking up one, like many others I suspect, I run thru the "ads" the first thing,, really to me sometimes the most enjoyable portion of the whole book, and what do I find there generally? Otherwise beautiful hunting scenes marred by the amni- pr(esent pump or automatic conspicu- ously displayed, yet the editor will tell yon he is very strong for this conser- xation husiness. I don't understand it at all. An expert shot with a double gun can get at most a double on ducks or he can make sure of one duck with his two shots and then they are out of killing range, but the pump gunner, he keeps on pumping until the birds are almost out of sight with the result that he gets one or t;,vo, besides crip- pling so\oral others that carry on a long way before they drop to (lie a lingering death, with no chance to re- cover, It may possibly be just as well to go right on and clean tip all the fish and game there is left--the while get- ting as many beautiful pictures as you can to hand down to posterity, but for goodness sake leave out of sight the pulllps and antomatics.

Advertising is nothing more or less than salesmanship. By advertising you sell to several hundred people at one time instead of to the single individual. Advertising does not belong to the realm 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.
