been forced upon his notlco by a
cheap deception. Right hero Is tho
explanation of tho failure of much ap
parently effectlvo advertising.
The mistakes of advertisers are dis

In a suggestlvo paper In Tho Indopon

must avoid bad company. It must not

Further, it should not be assigned to
a crowded space, never mind how pop-

8. Tho most effective advertise

peals In advertisements show that the
wholesomeness or durability of tho
product, the age and reliability of tne

use of the article advertised and Its
popularity, have great pulling power.

The advertisement cannot perform a
miracle, create something out of noth
ing. All that It can do Is to emphasize
merit where It exist; It cannot make
this merit The public, when once
fooled, Is likely to remember the fact.
Even if a sham succeeds because It la
advertised, this success Is purchased
at an economic wasto. It Is positive
ly Immoral to adverttso a sham. The
principle has thus an ethical as well
as a commercial Import Tho othlcs

these papers and magazines and to the
public as well.
The Time to Advertise.
Tho tlmo to ndvortlso Is all tho
time, but tho advertising should vary
with tho seasons. Advertising per
forms a doublo function. It helps tho
morchnnt to move larger quantities,
and so ennblos him to buy at botter
advantngo than fro could do without
advertising. It enables tho customer
to study tho Btock in advance. She
compares her wants and her purso
with tho goods advertised, and sho
goes to tho store knowing what she
wants, consequently shopping Is fa
cilitated, and tho day's business is
moro satisfactory to all concerned.

KEEPING CUT FLOWERS FRESH
Water Must Be Changed Frequently
and the Blossoms Should Be
Sprinkled Lvery Hour.
Almost tho first thought that fol
lows admiration for a freshly picked
bouquet Is how It can bo preserved
the greatest length of time? Many
experiments have been undertaken to
prevent flowers from fading such as
placing salt In the water, or nipping
them off and applying sealing wax.
We have tried all methods, and have
come to the conclusion that changing
water In which the stems are plunged
frequently and sprinkling tho flowers
hourly, will keep them fresh and fair
longer than will other treatment.
The water used should be tepid
Tho cooler the temperature of tho
apartment tho better. Never leavo
flowers under a gas Jet, or they will
immediately blight. Tho last thing at
night, change the water on tho stems
nnd sprinkle the flowers thoroughly.
Tie over the vase or basket tissue pa
per which has been soaked in water.
Over this tuck a newspaper. In the
morning the flowers will be found as
fair as the night previous.
Roses fade sooner than almost any
flowers. Heliotrope will wither and
blacken with the tenderest care. It
should bo nipped from a bouquet as
soon as it loses freshness. LUlcs.
tulips, narcissus, euphorbias, hya
cinths and all flowers with suculent
stems can bo preserved several days.

Proper Gymnastic Vork.
Every person who has received gym
nasium training Is aware of tho fact
that on exerciso which calls for pain
ful effort on the part of the beginner
is often performed almost without any
conscious effort at all after a cer
tain amount of training has been re
ceived. Again, it is perfectly well
known that bruto strength alone does
not make a gymnast, and that even s.
simple exercise may offer great dif
ficulty to a muscular and well develop
ed Individual who has not been train
ed in tho gymnasium. Tho explanation
for this Is mado plain In an artlclo by
Professor du Dots Reymond In Die
Umschau, who points out that one of
the essential functions of gymnasium
work Is. not bo much to build up mus
cle as to train nerves and nervo groups
to work in proper unison and co-ordination.
