Our experience ls that nine out of

to the unskilled management or lazi

HUMOR IS FOUND
Desire to Draw Trade Crops Out
in Unexpected Places and
at Odd Times.
Undoubtedly a real genius bs respon
sible for the pronunciamento that it
takes a rich man to draw a check, a
pretty girl to draw attention, a horse
to draw a cart, a mustard plaster to j
draw the skin, a toper to draw a cork, j
a free lunch to day a crowd, and an !
advertisement to draw trade.
It ls along this latter line, for the
purpose of drawing trade, that a news
paper exclusively for beggars is pub
lished in Paris. Its columns are filled
with notices of funerals, baptisms,
weddings and other social and public
events calculated to guarantee gen
erous responses to pathetic appeal?
from the beggars who, thus apprised,
flock to the sceiip of the functions,
night or day.
A choice sample of humor in adver
tising is furnished by the notice of
dissolution of a disastrous business
venture between two gentlemen ol
color lu the south. The following bon
mot for Insertion in the local paper j
was penned by the survivor of the
"De copartnership heretofore re
sisting twixt Mose Skinner en me am
dis day resolved. Dem what owes de
firm will mettle wid me, en dem what
de firm owes will settle wid Mose."
About the last place in which one
would look for advertising is the
churchyard, but it has been demon
strated that even there ali is fish that
comes to the net of the far-reaching
advertiser. It is recorded of a cer
tain shopkeeper possessing a grim
sense of humor that he had his grave
dug and a tombstone erected at itt
head some years before his death. Ot
the marble he caused to be Inscribed:
"Here Iles John Emerson, the Best
Hatter in Ohio."
A Canadian firm went this one bet
ter. The senior partner having pass
ed to his reward, his business associ
ates erected a monument to his mern
ory. The tombstone bore these words:
"Here lies Abram Stokes, founder o'
the firm of Stokes, Stokes & Co., whe
for many years have manufactured
pickles and bottled fruits. Best _oi
all and without a rival."
For her late husband a grief strick
eu widow across the ocean put up a
stone with this touching inscription
upon it: "Here lies-, dear depart
cd husband of -, who now carrier
on his business of general outfitter
and always gives good value; termt
Bill Nye, the lamented provoker ol
smiles, once had a cow to sell, or pro
fessed to have, and he advertised the
animal In this manner:
"Owing to my Ul health, I will sell
at my residence in the township 19,
range 18, acording to the government
survey, one plush raspberry cow, giv
ing milk frequently. To a man who
does not fear death In any form she
would be a great boon. She is very
much attached to her present home
with a stay chain, but she will be sold
to anyone who will treat her right.
She is one-fourth Shorthorn and three
fourths hyena. I will also throw in a
double-barreled shotgun, which goes
with her. In May she usually goes
away for a week or two and returns
with a tall red calf with wobbly legs.
Her name is Rose. I would rather sell
to a non-resident"
In the want columns of au English
newspaper not long since appeared, the
following notice: "Widower, living re
tired, without encumbrance, would like
to correspond with lady about forty,
with small means, with one leg pre
ferred, with a view to an early mar?
Hage." It ls to be regretted that tho
advert? ser did not explain why he pre
ferred a one-legged helpmate.
Another Englishman In his home pa
per boldly declared hie want ot a
wife, "who must be quite dumb and
deaf, at least fifty years ot age, and
who hates musio, children, pet dogs
and strong drink."
City Will Advertise.
Pasadena, Cal., will be well adver
tised, both in the north and south, in
the fall and winter months. At a re
cent meeting of the board of trade
directors it was decided to send sets j
of tho latest Pasadena steropticon !

board, for exhibition at the board's
lectures in the Ferry building, San
Francisco. Similar sets will also be
sent the Radnor World's Fair tour at
Ban Antonio, Texas, the lectures be

Eshman. the president, and for the
purpose of attracting large numbers of
people to visit the Pacific coast during

Difference Between Advertisers,
The tyro waits until conditions are
"right" for advertising before he be
gins. The man who has made his
lueeeas, and ls still making lt, used
advertising as a force te make condi
tions right. Therein Iles a big differ
ence hi men which wiri explain many
Moceases and nany failures.
Miss Myrtle Cothrum,
of Russel ville, Ala., says:
"For nearly a year, I suf
fered with terrible back
ache, pains in my limbs,
and my head ached nearly
all the time. Our family
doctor treated me, but
only gave me temporary
relief. I was certainly in
bad health. My school
teacher advised me to
The Woman's Tonic

trouble, or if you merely
need a tonic for that tired,
