JOHN WANAHAKER, THE MERCHANT PRINCE, PREFERS THE

John Wananmker K tie most widely known and one of thP inot
successful merchants in the world. - . ' "
Ho has reduced merchandising to exact science and Ins methods arc
rearded as standard in the retail world.
" He is also one of the largest, if -not t'he largest, purchasers of adver
tising space. For vears iie has made the subject of .publicity a study and
he is probably able to get as much alue out of a doliar spent an adver-tisin"-
as an vine in the advertising field.
In New'York at the present time. Mr. TVanamaker is running a page
advertisement each day in four newspapers of thai city. He 4ias entered
into a contract to run." not for one year, but for five years! in the prep
aration of his advertising copy he empioj-s a staff of editors, artists, spe
cial -writers, etc., large enough to equip a good-sized daily newspaper.

une feeing perhaps the best known of the daily papers of that city, all of
them morninir papers, and established when Now York -was little more
than a village, will occur to everyone as being the mediums selected by
Mr. "Wana maker.
On the contrary, he uses The Telegram, The Mail, The Post and The
Rrooklvn Standard Union, each and every one of them evening newspapers.
In' an interview with the manager of Mr. Wanamaker's advertising,
he stated .that he chose the evening papers because "the public has much
more time to read the advertisements at night than in the morning, and,
further, the evening papers tend to go into the family circle more."
That a single snerehant should make a five years contract with each
of four papers to Insert a page advertisement each week-day of -$ie year
for a period of five years, has created a real sensation in the advertising
world, and the fact "that not a single morning newspaper is included in
that list ihas made publishers of morning papers, not only in that city, but
in other cites, sit up and take notice.
Mr. Wanamaker's preference for evening newspapers as an advertising
medium is based on nearly a half century of experience in advertising.
His example is worthy of the attention of every merchant in the country
