100 WELL KNOWN TO NEED AN "AD." This idea that you have lived so long In town that everybody knows you and you don't need to advertise is a mistake. - This very indifference to advertising, indifference to doing business as it ii done in this day aqd 'age, is what has enabled the catalogue or mail ordei houses to grow from mere nothing to great concerns. The merchant w ho can convincc the people of his section, an4 • keep them convinced that his store fc. the best place to buy this and that arti cle, will not lose trade.to the mail order house. Of course he cannot afford to get out a catalogue as thick as a Bible but he can keep an advertisement in hit local paper, and see that it is changed, thus keeping new bargains continually befor the public. He should also hav« a mailing list, and send out a" circulai letter at least once a month. - Don't look upon your country newspaper as an . object of charity.
