WORTH BEARING IN MIND. FORTUNES IN PRINTERS' INK. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 22 May 1889
WORTH BEARING IN MIND. -4-t FORTUNES IN PRINTERS' INK. Don't expect an advertisement to bear frhit.in one night. i Bread is the staff of human life, and advertising is the staff of business. A thing worth doing is worth doing well. A thing worth advertising is worth dvertising well. The enterprising advertiser proves tlmt bie understands how to buy, because in ad vertising he knows how to sell. People who advertise once only in three months forget that most folks cannot re membei anything longer than three days. If you can arouse curiosity by an adver tisement, it is a point gained. The fair sex don't hold all the curiosity in the world. Quitting advertising in dull times is like tearing out a dam because water is low. Either plan will prevent good times Sfrom coming. I I Trying to do business without advertising is like winking at a pretty girl thlrough a pair of green goggles. You may know what you are doing, but no one else does. Enterprising people are beginning to learn the vir...

HUMOROUS EXAGGERATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 22 May 1889
HUMOROUS EXAGGERATIONS. Improbablc talcs have always gained the public ear, and .narratives of impossible events are not less attractive. The voraclous perusal of Haggard's novels was not needed to prove this, for there have been losg in clrculation vast numbers of Munchauson stories w'hlh have found appreciative readers. They stretch truth so far that yea can hear it crack. The fact that these 'tale don't contain one ounce of truth to the ton is the aieret of their sadcees. Although Americans have naturally the monopoly of these "tall tales,"yet some eo. collent ones are indigenous to Britain. ! For iestan~ . Sdne Smith supplies :us with one h tw'o which, though riot so eokravagant as the Yankee notions, are nevertheless vary amusing. He tells of an a?qaintance of.hIs who was so dirty that he would inake a stain on mud.

MAKE A NOTE OF IT. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 22 May 1889
MAKE A-NOTE OF IT. For suburban advertising the old well 1.established local inewspaper, which has become a necessity in every home, is about rthe best medium. Such a paperinvariably contains, in every issue, something tlut is locally interesting, and is therefore eagerly looked for, circulates from hand to hand, and then.issent to some friend in the country The news columns of daily papers may only be huriedlly scanned, and the sheet then I thrown aside, but the local journal is tre. sitred, and the demand for back copies of the Prahran Tlelralph and St. K.ilda Adrertiser is surprising. Many business men seem to think that, because a daily newspaper is supposed to have a wide cir culation, its advertising influence must be griaten-forgetting that not one in a hun dred readers ever even glance at the closely packed columns of advertisements in the dailies, while the 'greater majority of those wli" do look at business notices are far ,,away from the .locality in which trade is sought...

In reply to queries, aMr. Skinner said--Passing over the trip and my arrival at the Royal Albert docks, Imay state that my first impressions of Loundon were not favorable. The streets are too narrow, and the tramic is too great for the width of the streets. The architec ture is good, but its beauties are obscured from view by thick coatings of a sooty rlbstance. The sun is seldom seen in Lon lon. I never saw it all the while I was there, but there is no dust, anl this com pensates for na lot. The traffic in London streets astonishes a Colonial, and also the wonderful mlnner in which it is managed. The rlrcets are laid with a killnd of hard polished asphalt, on tile top of wood blocks.
