VALUE OF ADVERTISING. From the Birchii? Advertiser : "It is strange bow few people ap pear to understand the value of ad vertising and. avail themselves of the opportunities that are often open to them for advertising.free, "gratis, and for nothing. For instance, we are always asking our readers to send along items of news concerning the district—very few, comparative ly speaking, do so. As a matter of fact many tradersTake so little inte rest in the welfare of the district or its mouthpiece—the local piper— that they will give the first city tra veller who calls ou theui their prin ting" orders ; "totally ignoring the fact that the proprietor of the local paper and the staff loyally support them." ■

"It has ofteu baeu asked," said that'gentleman, "what's in a name ? In the name of Anzac there was a great deal, aud I would move that the necessary steps be taken to rename the park as sugges ted." There was a lapse of a few moments before a secouder could be found. Cr C. R. Basset came to the rescue. "Donald Park sounds very well, said Cr J. h. Pearse, who held the opinion that the change was unnecessary. Cr \V. Sproat thought it advisable not to move in the matter at present, as no doubt there would be a great number in the future who would wish they had never heard of Anzac. The matter was held over. [...
