MARK TWAIN ON ADVERTISING. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 19 October 1939
MARK TWAIN ON ADVERTISING.
When Mark Twain was editor of a country paper 'in Missouri, he re- ceived a letter from-a shopkeeper in the town. The merchant stated that he had found a spider between the pages of the previous day's issue.' He wanted to know whether the find was a good or bad omen. - Mark Twain, who knew that the merchant was one of several in the town who refused to advertise in his paper, replied to his correspond- ent as follows: — "To discover a spider' in one's newspaper is neither a good nor an evil omen. The said spider merely perambulates through the pages of our journal in order to discover which of the merchants of our town does not advertise his goods in our pages. Having discovered such an unbusinesslike person, our spider ;at once scuttles td_Jiis~.shQp and pro- ceeds to spin a web across the door, so that it may be-certain of finding a home where it is unlikely to be disturbed." — Politiken Magasinet (Copenhagen).
