Every issue of the EVENING
BULLETIN in which a business is
advertised acts as an agent for
that business. Tells the reader
what that business is, where it is
located, what stock it possesses,
and the advantages it has to offer.
Without such advertisement there
would be, therefore, a community
of readers knowing nothing
about that business, and, as a
matter of course, passing it by in
the search for supplies.
