DOES ADVERTISING PAY? [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 3 December 1915

DOES ADVEkTISINQ PAY ? This is .111 old question, but there can be only oue answer. It must pay iu your business over aud over again. Have you considered the low cost of advertising in the Don ald Times? An advertisement in this old-established journal costs but I little, and each week the advertise ment will be read, by allowing the j low average of three readers in each liooie, by over 3,000 persons, or in other words, it is placed before near ly 1 (>0,000 readers every year. Why not inquire about an advertisement now ? Pydontory or inflammation of tho bowel or iutuiitim: is of more frequent occureue.o daring the summer months. It can be cbockol if Chamberlain's Colic auJ Diarr hoea Kemedy is taken accouling to the printed directions on each bottle.

Competetive Rates. THE COUNTRY'S LOSS. AND TI-IE CITY'S "GAIN." , Iii the Legislative Assembly ou Wednesday, Novembjr24, Mr J. W. Pennington, speaking ou the ques tion of preferential railway rates, said that a furniture maker at Mary borough who desired to send furni ture to Mildura received a letter from the Acting Secretary for Rail ways pointing out that in 1905, on account of river competition with Adelaide, railway fares between Melbourne aud Mildura were reduc ed, but that the reductions could not be applied to intermediate stations. Yet the Government was supposed to favor decentralisation. If 000 could be spared for the purpose of increasing wages, a few lniudreds of pounds might be used iu the inter ests of decentralisation. Unfortun ately the population of the country was decreasing, while that of Melb ourne was going ahead.
