So better means to n.ake one's goods,
wares, and mer haudise, and their par
ticular merits, known to the world, lias
ever been discovered than through the
medium of newspapers. Whether com
mercial, political, literary, religious, of
whatever sect, party, or authorship, all
have their circulation nnd intluence.
How many successful business men
could bocnumerated whoowe their high
pecuniary position to advertising alone!
How many plucky firms are taking tho
lead, monopolizing certain lines of bus
iness, simply by judicious alvertising!
There is not in existence an article of
value that is not worth publishing to
We have now in mind one firm of
which we can speak with certainty.
We refer to the house of J. R. Barrett &
Co., of this city, the gentlemanly and
popular proprietors of that indispensable
article known as Bqrro.t's Vegetable
Hair Restorative." Two years ago this
preparation was scarcely known outs'do
of this section ; to-day there is not a
city, town, or borough this side of the
Pacific where this excellent "Renower"
h not known nnd appreciated, and is,
we learn, rapidly suppkint'n nll otherr.
To be sure, this preparation possesses
real merit, and is far removed from the
thousands of vile nostrums which con
stantly flood every market. It also re
ceived the endorsement of the Agricul
tural Society in I860, which awarded its
highest premium (a silver medal evei
given In tlio line of patent lemedies.
Yet " Barrett's Hair IJestqrativo " owns
its success and prosout position in a
great degree to advertising.
Manufacturers and proprietors of any
article of merit should not fail to resort
to timely and judicious advertising,
that they may not only reap its benefits,
but at the same time confer c priceless
gift upon the community at largo by the
introduction of theirhappy nnd valuable
