LITERATURE AND ADVERTISEMENT WRITING.
(By Arthur Brisbane, the brilliant editor of the Heart Newspapers.)
The writing of advertisements Is becoming, more and more, a really
scientific and LITERARY profession.
The gentleman who wrltea little stories for magczlnei, or little
poems that do not get printed, looks down upon the writer of adver
tisements. He would be horrified at the tugusstion that one who
writes advertisements could be called literary."
But, aa a matter of fact, the literary quality of a good advertlaement
writer ought to be and very often la first data. Such a writer mutt
combine In himself thote characteristics which do moit to make real
First of all, HE MUST BE CONVINCING, and there la nothing more
Important In good literary work.
Second, HE MUST HAVE IMAGINATION not the kind of Imagin
ation that distorts facta, but thr kind of imagination that makee com
mon, everyday facts INTERESTING.
Third, HE MUST BE BRIEF WITHOUT DEINC UNINTCRCSTINO,
tor each word he writes Is more highly paid for than a word of the
greateit literary man only the writer. Instead of the pubhther, pays
We should like to Interett the writers of advertisements and the big
merchants' who employ the clever advertising writers In thle sugges
tion MAKE YOUR ADVERTISEMENTS MORALLY USEFUL TO THE
PUBLIC, AND EDUCATIONALLY USEFUL TO THE PUBLIC. AS
WELL AS MATERIALLY USEFUL.
The other day, for Instance, a certain very Intelligent writer c,
advertlaementa wanted to imprees upon people's minds the fact that
they often pay too much for a hat because of the name that la in It.
He quoted briefly and effectively an old Heidelberg profettor whose,
opinion of hlmtelf waa ao high that he lifted hla hat reverently WHEN
EVER HIS OWN NAME WAS MENTIONED.
The writer of the advertlaement then went on to draw conclutlona
favorable to his own hats and unfavorable to thote that charge for a
fame. .That Is the sort of advertlelnrj that lingers In the memory
that makee one writer of advertising better than another.
The lda of apt quotations that spread information through adver
tisements can be carried much farther.
One of the soap advertlaementa, for Inttance, does good by remind
ing the pubtlo of the Importance of keeping open the porea of the akin,
telling Jutt how many milllona ot thote pores there are. If has fixed
many minds upon tho value of cleanliness, besides telling one partic
ular kind of good soap.
Another advertiser, calling attention to a certain periodical for
women, begins as follows:
"Out In Wyoming, where the women vote, the politicians have a new
proverb. It la this: A candidate of whom women dlaapprove la dead
In the ahell." '
There could not be a better way of attracting the attention of women,
or men either. That brief and truthful statement aa to the power of
women's opinion Is an excellent thing to put before millions of readers.
Some of thote who advertise atandard remedlea Include In their
advertlaementa very almple, honest and intelligent ttatcmenta as to
the proper care of the health. This could well be carried much farther
with more beneficial reaultt. .
Of thlt every merchant and every advertising writer may be lure.
If the advertltement appeals to a man's INTELLECT, his mental
approbation, If It Interests him seriously, IT WILL LINGER IN HI8
MEMORY, AND THE ADVERTISER WILL LINGER WITH IT.
pride In the moral and educational features of their advertltementt.
It is evident that, as the years go by, a constantly Increatlng emount
of advertltlng will be tpread before the public. A great deal of good
can be done If the writers and promoters ef advertising take a real
