PETT G b'CHES HAR!i TO LOCAL
Bickering, backbiting and lack
harmony have wrecked more
community prospects than we
care to enumerate. They are the
granite upon which many L
bright commercial future has
been smashed to nothingness.
They are the death knell of
prosperity in any town.
And yet wu see reputable and
high standing and well meaning
business men continually taking
petitors in the coninercial field.
We see them throwing out in
nuedoes in the hope of eurtail
ing the trade of their rivals We
see them casting veiled refictions
on the business integrity of other
firms who may perchance be
more snccessful than they are.
It doesn't pay either the man,
his rival, or the commercial life
of the conmunity upon which
we all must depend.
Many business tuen have no
thought of the far reaching effect
of their inconsiderate words to
the detriment of others, but the
disastrous effect is felt on all
hands. It creates a spirit of dis
cord in the community, destroys
the confidence of one in another,
and tirevents that cohesion of
purpose by which weaccowplil
the greater achievements of life.
We would like to see every
man speak well of his business
associates. We would like to see
them all laboring iu harmony in
a commercial union for the ad
vancement of this town and :his
community. We would like to
see them all pulling together in
order that the load may be
lighther for each.
We have everything to gain
by such a unity of purpose. WE
We have nothing whatever tc

Mrs. Jones remarks to Mrs.
Sr th that she simply must go
to the store and get a new dress
pattern, or a winter coat, or pos
sibly a new hat. Mrs. Smith
has read of the latest creations
at some store and immediately
springs her knowledge upon
Mrs. Jones, who simply can't
resist the temptation to go and
see for herself. Once there she
Farmer Hankinson needs a
new harness, or a plow, or some
other implement for progressive
farming. His neighbor has read
the up to date ad of the imple.
ment house in the local paper
and incidentally mentions that
So-and-So carries a good ar
ticle which he is advertising
quite heavily. This excites
Farmer Hankinson's curiosity
and he "just drops in to see it.'
He, too. often ends with a buy.
The woman's club, or the sew
ing circle, or the pink tea ladies
get together and spend the af
ternoon or evening iu gathering
up stray bits of information.
Anything that has attracted the
eye of any member comes in for
discussion, and nothing is more
dear to their tiearts than those
delightful things that were ad
vertised in the last issue of the
paper. Of course they all want
to know about them, and then
they must see them, and in the
end they buy them,
Bill Doolittle wants a new
overcoat, and the well written
overcoat ad never gets by him.
He drops in and looks over the
coats of which the merchant has
spoken so glowingly. They are
as represented, and he buys.
Yes, they all read the ads, and
they talk about the goods they
read about, and they buy when
they are sufficiently interested
to talk about them.
Of course advertising pays.
Everybody knows it pays.
Many people would like to be
good if they did not miss so
much fun in the being.
When you think y ou have
reached the point of human per
fection it is time to back up and
take a fresh start. You need it.
