Mr Buyer, Ponder Over This
'vo farmers were nmol long(
since (discussing their local paper
One thought it had to nm
adlvertisemnents ini it. The other
replied: "'In my opinion the adI
vertisements are famr fronm being
the least valuable part oIf it. I
look themi over carefully and
save at les ietimes the cost
of the paper each week through
the business adlvantages I get
fonm them.'" Said the other:
"'I believe you are right-I know
that they pay me well and rath
er think it is not good taste to
find fault with the advertise
mients after all." Those mnen
have the right idea of the mat
ter'. It pays any man wvith a>
family to take a good local paper;
for the sake of the fatvertise
menits if nothing more. And if
business men fail to give farm
er's a chance to read advertise
ments in the local naper, they
are blind to their own interests,
to say the least of it. "'You
never trade with me," said a
- business man to a prosperous
farmer. "You have nmever in
Svited me to your place of busi
ness and I never go where I am
not invited, I might not be wel-1
