Patronize Advertising Houses.
t' One ,who. knows , what. ,he is.
talking dVoutjdispouj-sesjn this,
wise, ;; When we see a business
finu WYing r, publicity ', to their
particular branch; of trade, we
argue at once that euck a house
is alive to the requiroments of
the, tiino, , It implies , npt'QnJy
keen sagacity, but likewise
that sort of liberality, which is
sure to attract the atteption of
the tride. Many . establish
ments forego the benefits ; of
profitable of advertising from
a spirit of mere penuriousness,
They reason this way : 'Should
we .incur, an outlay of $50 or
$ 100, or $500, possibly .we may
never 'get, it back---t,hen it
would be , so,, much . thrown
away.'. These are tfndd men,
always, and properly belong to
a past generation., Tho true
man of business, appreciating
the fair advantages of being
represented in newspaper col
umns, looks upon advertising
as 'bread catt upon the wat
ers 'and should he find do im
mediate fruits of his expendi
ture, ho rests at . ease,' being
fully satisfied that it 'will re
turn after manv days.' ,',
