"KEEP ON KEEPING ON" V~hen a traveling companion re- marked to William Wrigley that he t~ld "save money" by cutting down advertising, Mr. Wrigley re- tP~Uded: "We're making a fine trip %1 d rials train. How much progress Q You think we should make if they took off the locomotive?" PENS PAPER PENCILS PADS ENVELOPES WHY ARGUE ? One of the most futile things in the world is argument. If you want to persuade anybody, suggest--do not argue. When you argue with a man you arouse his antagonism; you rarely se- cure his co-operation. So, if you want a man to do any- thing, take any other course than ar- gument. There is a story floating about of a man who went to a clothing store and asked to see a good woolen suit. The storekeeper produced a suit ; the customer examined it and said: "It looks pretty good; but it doesn't look like wool to me. I do not believe it is wool." "But you like it ?" inquired the sales- man. "Yes, I like it all right; but I don't think it is wool." "Shall I wrap it up for you?" "Sure; I guess I'll take it. But tell me, why didn't you argue with me when I told you it wasn't wool? As a matter of fact, I don't know whether it's wool or not." "Well," said the merchant, taking his money, "you see, if I win the ar- gument I lose the sale; so, what's the use?"--S. F. Examiner.

Advertising is nothing more or less than s~lumanship. !~ advertising you sell to several hundred people at one time instead of to the single individual. Axlvartising 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- tlsod. Your advertising should create good will for your store throughout your trading aara and thereby increase the volume of your business or your unual turn-over.
