The question of providing rocreation grounds for tbo inhabitants of Bowral and Moss Vale, two rapidly - pro grossing towns, has frequently boon brought undor tlio notice of the residents, who have on soveral ooassions made ccrtain spasmodic efforts towards acquiring a piece of land of suflicient urea and in a suitable position, that would bo found to meet re quirements of tho places named.

PHILOSOPHY OF ADVERTISING. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 19 April 1884
PHILOSOPHY OF ADVERTISING. In bis. address to the editors of Indiana, at their recent meeting at Fort Wayne, (Jolouel Gil Pierce, of the Chicago Daily News, pre sented the following thoughts with reference to advertising. He said: " And iri presen ting a beautiful sheet typographically, one should remember the advertisers as well as the readers. A man likes to have his adver tisement pleasing to look upon, catching to the eye, and indicative generally to the ad vertiser. This class of patrons are so im portant to succcFs that they should receive every encouragement. Particularly should they be impressed with the desirability of keeping (heir wares before the public. A man never realises the full benefits of advertising till he has placed the matter bofore the same people SO or 100 times. Ihe first ad. is good, but the 100th is worth more than 500 times as much as the first. > Somo one It.as saM tho 'first timo n man looks tit an advertisement lie does not boo it. Tho Boconcl timo...
