100 WELL KNOWN TO NEED AN "AD. This idea that you have lived so in town that everybody knows you auJ you don't need 'o advertise is a mistake. This very indifference to advcri'sing, indifference to doing business as 't is done in this day and age, is what liaj enabled the catalogue or mail ordei houses to grow from mere nothing to great concerns. The merchant who can convince the people of his section, and keep them convinced that his store if the best place to buy this and that arti cle, will not lose trade to the mail ordei house. Of course he cannot afford to get out a catalogue as thick as a Bible i but he can keep an advertisement in his local paper, and see that it is changed, thus keeping new bargains continually befor the public. He should also have a mailing list, and send out a circular letter at least once a month. Don't look upon your country newspaper as an object of charity. There is not a single country newspaper in the State, with i general local circulation, which i...
