The News has'frequently urged the
business'men of Paris to beware of the
traveling advertising solicitors but
they continue to fall for the old game
that has existed for years, and spend
their money for advertising from
which they receive little or no benefit.
It bearsout a previous statement that
local merchants are easy to tumble
into the clever schemes of these men
who get their money with little en
deavor, spend nothing in the town and
leave the advertiser with nothing
more or less than scrap paper.
A few days ago one of these smooth
tongued artists came to to wn and held
a number of merchants up with a
saheme. His plan was vo have printed
a pocket directory of Paris which in
cluded a railroad and interurban time
table, lodge directory, driving distance
from Paris, the city officials and a
brief sketch of the town. On each
page was a liberal amount of advertis
ing which the merchants, generously
The promoter of this little scheme
came to top'n on atieaily train, worked
the advertising end of the program,
wrote his sketch and-.the job 6was
turned over to a local "nrinter who
completed il the-sume day. His col
lections were made and he departed
with a considerable sum of money.
The News does not contend that ad
vertising of any sort is not a good
thing, but it does contend that there
is a legitimate way to advertise and
whereby the merchant will get the
full benefit onf the money he will
nut into it. Newspaper advertising
is the one kind that will nay, and if
merchants of Paris could be brought
to this realization they would be saved
a lot of money in the course of a year
by turning down the smooth proposi
tion of the man who spends a day in
town and clears out with a sum of
money which if SDent with local news
papers would increase their business
and eventually get back to the man
who Epent it this wav. As it is the
money is gone, never to be again in
