Disagreeable though it may seem, there was not a single element of good in all those events and cir- cumstances which led up to and culminated in the murder of Stan- ford White. It was a drama staged on the lowest possible level, and enacted by characters whose depravity when revealed startled the whole civilized world. The only good that could be said about Stanford White at the time . of his death was that he was a great archi...

w Write as You Talk By ^HOLLAND. MR. ADVERTISER, you should make your adver- tisements representative of yourself. They should em- body your personality, your reputation and your aims. Do not say anything in an ad- vertisement that you would not say face to face with a customer. Tour advertise- ments are a part of your busi- ness, and they should har- monize with your business methods. If the goods you are going to sell are part cotton don't advertise them as all wool unless you intend to misrepresent and are will- ing to look your best cus- tomer In the face and insist that the goods are all wool. If you are building your business on deception—well, that is your affair. But if your word is recognized as good in your neighborhood then your advertisements should sustain your reputa- tion, and you will lose noth- ing by telling possible cus- tomers in cold type that the bargain you offer is only half as good as it looks. One of the most successful advertisers in the country once adver...

WEEKS TO Pffliff 11 N fit/ \ Buy Your Christmas Presents Now and Get First Choice. UECATUh'S I-miAL DUEL A Hi* Memorable and Dramatio Meeting W>th Commodore Barron. On March Itíéü, was fought one oí the most memorable duels in the annals of the Uuited States. Commodore Decatur and Commo- dore Barron met on the fatal held near Bladcnsburg that day. Both participants were wounded, Decatur mortally, dying within a few hours after the encounter. The causes which led to the ill feeling between these two naval heroes have never been accurately determined, but it is generally sup- posed that Decatur's harsh criticism of Barron on account of the latter not returning from abroad to take fart in the war brought about the reach. Certain it ig that Decatur's words were repeated to Barron, and a correspondence between the two ensued, which probably resulted in ihe challenge. The impending duel was kept a profound secret. Only a few of the moat intimate friends of the respective participants h...

¡¡m fy- .u- 18; H M*. By HOLLAMO. THE principal value of ad- vertising consist in the fact that the Influence of ad- TertMftg is cumulative. It vaina strength by repetition. This does not otean the repe- tition of one advertisement indefinitely. A change of copy is desirable. It means the continued advertising of one's business In as effective a manner as possible. One man has been in busi- ness in the town twenty years; another opened bis store last week. Both may be equally honest, equally en- terprising, equally deserving of credit and custom. But which has the better reputa- tion ? Naturally the man who has been doing business in the same building for twen- ty years.- It is the result of persistency, the Inevitable cumulative effect You can't get away from it —your reputation will either get better or worse as your business methods become known. Repetition impresses the fact even on the careless observer. Remember this in your advertising. Don't ex- pect to make a fortune by one...
