St. Paul Divine Believes In the Use
of Space Next to Brewery
"Active competition ugalnst the
lures of the theaters and other amuse
ment placet must be made by com
peting with them in their representa
tions to the public," paid Rev. Thomas
A. IfcCurdy, while advocating news
paper advertising for churches in St
Paul, Minn., recently.
The occasion was a meeting for the
purpoi-e of considering a merger of
publicity interests of St. Paul church
es. Rev. McCurdy urged that the
churches purchase advertising space
In the newspapers adjacent to that
held by the theaters and other amuse
Answering the criticism of a mem
ber who was opposed to church adver
tising, the speaker said;
"You're after tbe devil. Then why
hesitate about fighting him. I ran an
advertisement for a year next to a
theatrical 'ad.' and obtained results.
If the choice of space lies between
a page of miscellaneous 'ads.' and a
page of brewery 'ada.' the churches
should take the latter and be pleased
with the advantage gained."
Church Advertising Pays.
"I believe newspaper advertiaement
if church services pays in every way.
It pays financially, at leaat, with us,
and it certainly paya In the securing
of a larger hearing for the pulpit mes
sage. Yet I also realise that such ad
vertising, to be effective or make any
apeclal impression, must be the an
nouncement of some unusual toplo
which has news value. The ordinary
theme does not attract that kind of
attention. Succesa dependa on the
phrasing of the subject and the way
It la handled In the pulpit This kind
of church publicity Is an art in it
self which must be carefully atudled,
as a business man studies hla kind of

called dally circulation.
A good advertiser will change his
advertisement in hie local paper
often, and for a similar reason the
advertiser should change his window
trims frequently. This la an easy
matter for almoBt any store. It la not
necessary that every elaborate detail
be changed two or three times a
week, but It Is worth while changing
aome portion of It. The up-to-date
window la trimmed on a unit Idea
except when some one line of roods !
is featured exclusively. It should bo,

Price Cards Profitable.
There is not the slightest doubt
that a judicious use of price tickets
and window cards will pay well for
their cost and the t'.mc expended in
their making. It has been proven, I
also, that a neat, plain window card 1
Is much more valuable than one that
is glaring and sprawltngly "artistic."
The window card Is a small thing ;
In itself, so Is the newspaper adver
tlsement. Aa the latter la an lmpor- 1
tant link In the chain of publicity so
should the window card be a thing of
sense and meaning. Such expressions ,
aa, "We'll treat you right," "We aell
I lowest prices," "We have the lar
geet atock in town," while of aome
value aro not nearly so desirable as
aome definite information or sugges
tion about some line or article on dis
play. It is safe to sty that thtj messages
sent out constantly through this me
dium are bearing fruit evary day. A
card that Is suggestive will always be
sure of having' people who read It
think and ponder over the Induce
ments offered. The good work these
cards do may not always be easily
traced, but they have done good for
others and to all classes of stores.
A clothier and haberdasher of Chi
cago has stated that window cards
made out of plain wrapping paper,
with a carpenter's blue pencil, were
the means of building up a successful
business for him.
The price card Is a salesman.
When a man looks In a show window
and noticea a saw he likos ho won
ders first of all what the price is. He
feels diffident about asking a sales
man what the price may be, so passes
on. It the question of "how much"
Is answered as often as possible by
price cards, more sales will be the re

of measures shows departures from a
spherical form. Of course the depart

The Farmer's Search.
While plowing, a Crawford county
farmer near Helper had the misfor

a neighbor came by. "Lost some
thing?" he asked. Soon another came
by and asked the same question. And
then another. Pretty soon a man he
didn't like anyhow approached. "Lost
something?" he asked. The farmer;
