Room for Another Newspaper? Son!
A friend of The Echo received a
letter the past week which he turned
over to the editor for answer. The
writer wanted to know if The Echo
was the only newspaper in Leaven
worth and as the town seemed to be
prosperous with a promise of consider
able growth, if there was not room for
another. Answering the gentleman's
inquiry we have to say, The Echo is
the only newspaper here. There is a
small children's paper, gotten out by
children, tor children, circulated for
the most part gratuitously, and sub
sisting on the bounty of a generous
public, receiving such advertising pa
tronage as papers of that character
usually get, taking any price the ad
vertiser is willing to pay, to fill space
that would otherwise have to be filled
with big display ads of itself. We are
all trying to keep it alive because we
do not want the news to go abroad
that Leavenworth ever lets anything
die for want of a little help.
Yes, there is room here for another
GOOD newspaper, tho we suggest
hat anyone intending to come here
b*M his venture on his own judgment.
For yean this town has had a monthly
r -y roll of forty to fifty thousand dollars.
This will be almost doubled the com
ing summer. We have a steel mill
located here, now under construction
Gigantic Clearance Sale!
Continued until Saturday Night, February Ist
In order to give a chance to those who have not been able to partake of the feast of bargains that has been going on at the

time adding more to the numerous bargains—all new goods. This is really a rare chance to buy good, seasonable merchandise at
such low figures as were never heard of before in this section of the state. Remember, there is no reserve. Every article in the

The inquirer after information was
correctly advised when he surmised
that Leavenworth was a prosperous,
growing town, with an outlook for fu
ture development as a manufacturing
center as well as a fruit growing dis
trict no: surpassed by any town in the
Oar fruit industry, still in its infancy,
capable of supporting a town the size
of Cashmere when fully developed. It
is iast beginning to add its share to
the general prosperity- Leavenworth
should easily double in population in
a very short time. For this reason
we say there is room for another
GOOD newspaper in Leavenworth, if
not present, at least very near prospec
tive room. Of course there is not
room for another children's paper.
The one already established is fully
capable of lupplying the present as
well as all future demands for pabulum

- A liltie Talk on Adverts*!
If placing of toot advertising is
gorerned by circulation and results we
modestly suggest that you follow the
plan of one of our largest merchants.
The matter of circulation being un
der discussion with him we suggested
that the most convincing and satisfac
tory way to settle that matter was for
him to make it a point to ask every
man or woman who came into his
store foe one week the simple ques
tion, "What paper do you prefer?" or
"Which paper do you read?" A
week later we made bold to ask him
the result, when he smiled and said,
"There was nothing to it." He is one
of our largest advertisers and most suc
cessful business men.
A professional man phoned this of
fice to send a representative around,
that he wanted to place some adver- j
tising. He had had a six-inch double I
column ad in the children's paper for i
a month, "without results," and
wanted to try the Echo. When told
the price of advertising in the Echo
he said it was more than double what
he had paid. We suggested that chil
dren's shoes and children's clothing
costs less than that intended for grown
up people. He saw the point and said
he would give The Echo a trial. He
placed a six-inch double column ad in
The Echo for six weeks and then had
it discontinued. Asked by the wiiter
of these lines if the ad had produced
results, he laughed and said, "Well, I
got the business I was after and have
no kick to make." We can furnish
the names of the persons above re-j
U you can afford it, by all means ad
vertise in the children's paper. Make ,
it a point to help every Leavenworth j
enterprise. It is such loyalty as this i
that makes cities of towns, and right
here is the place to remind you that j
advertising in The Echo is busiDsss,
pure and simple. There is no charity,
no sympathy, no sentiment, no good
or ill feeling about it. Just good,
straight business. If you advertise inj
The Echo you can better afford to keep j
your ad in the children's paper. Be-j
sides, it needs your support.
The Echo is a business proposition.
Every one who takes it pays $1.50 per
year for it. Over four hundred Leav
enworth people take it and pay for it
cheerfully, because they want it and
consider it is worth the price. Over
twelve hundred read it every week.
Come in and we'll show you their
names, and if you can find one who is
mot paving for it we will forfeit $25.00
for every such.
