DOES ADVERTISING PAY? [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 15 June 1882

DOES ADVERTISING PAY 1 Professor Holloway spends about L30,000 a year in advertising Iris pills and ointment; Messrs. Moses and Son, L10,000; so do Rowland and Son, of Macassar oil renown; a similar sum is yearly expended in advertising Dr. Jo Jonghi's cod liver oil. Mr. Nicholas, the tailor, of Oxford-street, London, spends L5,000 a year in this way, and Dr. L. L. Smith, of Melbourne, L15,000 annually. But the largest advertiser in the world is Mr. Hum. bold, the great Now York chemist, whose advortisements cost him LIS,000 a week. He advertises in no less than 3,000 papers, and upon one occasion offered L1,000 for one page of the New York Herald." The question is often asked, does the prodigious ox pondituro pay? It only needs a glance at tIre names mentionedl to show that it must pay. Mr. Holloway Is worth LS,000,000, and each of the others has amassed an immeonse fortuner.

DEATH OF A CENTENARIAN. Recently there died at the Liverpool Asylum (N.S.W.) a man named George M'Quillan, who had reached the extra ordinary age of 112. This man arrived In the colony by the ship Royal Sovereign in 1834, when he was stated to be 64 years of age. On Juno 9, 1855, being too infirm to do any work, he obtained an order for admission into the asylum where he ended his eventful career. According to his own statement, which is believed to be correct, M'Quillan was a soldier in the PeninRula-war nearly 80 years ago, and actuully fought for his country under Sir John Moore, with whom he was present at the famnous retreat at Corunna The old veteran likewise afterwards served under the Duke of Wellington, and was at the battle of Waterloo, he at the time being 45 years of age.
