An interesting lecture on retail
advertising was given Friday night
at the court house, when Mr. William
Burns, expert lecturer for the Na

Ohio, told of the causes of losses in.
retail business, and haw they could
be remedied. A large number of
f merchants and sale'speople were pres- i
ent. Mr. .Burns used stereopticon
slides and motion pictures through
out'the lecture to emphasize, the va
"Inefficient business methods cause
the great. majority of losses," said
Mr. Burns. He then cited figures to
prove this fact, showing that last
year 11,900 merchants failed. "This
means forty failures every day, and
one every fifteen minutes," he de
clared. Particular emphasis was laid
on the value of newspaper advertis
ing to the retail merchant in the
lecture. "More people can be reach
ed, oftener and at less expense by
newspaper advertising than by any
other medium," declared the speaker.
"But don't spend a few dollars adver
tising, and then say that advertising
doesn't pay," he continued. "Make
advertising a continuous policy of
your store, and you will hot be dis
appointed with the results," Nhe ad
ded. The. proper method of prepar
ing newspaper advertisements " was
also demonstrated by Mr. Burns, 'in
connection" with the lecture a three
reel film story was shown, illustrat
ing the "Troubles of a Merchant,
