100 WELL KNOWN TO NEED AN "AD." [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 18 March 1914
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 and age, is what hai enabled the catalogue or mail ordei houses to grow from mere nothing to great concerns. The merchant who can convincc the people of his section, and keep them convinced that his store ilj the best placc to buy this and that arti cle, will not lose trade to the mail ordet house. Of course he cannot afford to get out a catalogue as thick as a Bible 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 a general local circulation, whi...

"JACK." [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 18 March 1914
" JACK." gfe. The origin of the name Jack, which was discussed by Mr. E. \V. B. Nic holson, oI the Bodleian Library at Oxford, in "The Pedigree of Jack ini other Allied Name.;," is dealt with in the article on "Jack" in the new "Kneyclypatdia Uritannica." Is it an adaptation from James, or is it directly derived from John ? Its possible connection with James is seen when we reflect that Jacobus is the l.atin form of this ne.mo, the French equivalent being, of course, Jacques. ! It more probable, however, that it owes its origin to. John. This is its earliest and universal use in Eng lish, jrind a monastic history written in lil-l distinctly gives it as a form of John. But Jack was used at cn early date as a genual term for any man of the common people ; it Was not at first attach:d to 'tuiycne in his inii vidunl capacity.
