ADVERTISING AS AID
By, FRANK M. DU NOYER.
Tho day is dawning when tho pub
HoherB of magazlneB and newspapers,
one and all, who arc given to exploit
ing inflated circulations will bo ex
tremely unfashionable in tho advertis
ing world, and it will be tho same wltk
thoso unscrupulous and Incompetent
advertising ogentB whose only stock
In trade is being able to arrange for
plnclng accounts with inferior publica
tions. An enthusiastic man will create en
thusiasm in others not only by word
of mouth but by means of the wrlttca
word. It is so with a commonplace
news Item dressed up by a live man
who has an Imagination, and equally
so with ad writers. Enthusiasm will
take you right through to tho cus
tomer. The subject of clerk hire Is always
interesting to an advertising man, for
though his ads have the pulling power
to fill a merchant's store, unless the
clerks are well posted on the mer
chandise that Is featured from day to
day; unless they arc courteous, alert,
painstaking and obliging It is obvious
that results will not be satisfactory.
I have asked why Indifferent and In
competent clerks are so often found
in Important positions. Sometimes
the answer Is that this Is a mill town
and efficient help can command big
pay In tho mills. Now, that answer
would not satisfy you If you were an
advertising man with your heart and
soul In your work, for you know from
observation that one good clerk Is
worth more to a merchant thau four
incompetents. But conditions in that
respect are rapidly changing, nnd we
are all studying efficiency and how to
get the best results for the money
expended. There are many things that
people must buy somewhere, and they
are apt to buy most of these things
through persuasive ads. And there
are many more things they would buy
if they were properly waited upon.
There is always a reason for every
thing whether it be success of failure.
The great success of John Wanamaker
of course is not duo to any one par
ticularly good idea that emanated
from that brilliant mind, but there is
one rule In his big Philadelphia store
that surely has helped toward that
end it is that no clerk must see a
customer stand waiting if it Is pos
sible to excuse himself from tho cus
tomer he is waiting on and approach
the one waiting with a remark some
thing like tho following: "I will be
pleased to wait 011 you very Boon;"
and this must be said pleasantly; In
fact the clerks must be pleasant and
agreeable at all times under all cir
cumstances to customers.
The text of an ad may bo ever so
well written, hut if It Is not attrac
tively Illustrated or displayed It will
not arrest the attention and Is lost.
This is a technical feature of adver
tising and I will pass on to tho text.
The text of an ad should always
contain the facts. But just plain facts
is not enough. Unless the ad contains
that spark of life that is born of en
thusiasm unless tho wtV.or is really
interested In this work and Is able by
what he says to hold the Interest that
has been awakened by the Illustration
or display, the ad will surely fail of
Its purpose. This principle Is well
known to local news writers. The en
thusiastic local Bcrlho who is able to
embellish a commonplaco news item
with a lively imagination will get it
past that city editor, unless it is a
big day for news, without a mnrk on
It because It Is readablo and has hu
When a concern has been doing
business tho old way, without adver
tising, for several years, and has been
successful, it requires patience, perse
verance and much pci suasion to get
them to look toward tho light. I have
In mind tho very trying experience of
an advertising mon with tho head of
a very old and conservative business
concern. A young man Just through
college secured tho assistance of the
advertising man and they undertook
to show tho father tho now nnd bet'er
way to do business. Of course there
was some objection on the start, and

Harriman Stood on

During the Great Panic of 1893 He
Would Have Been Utterly Ruined
If Clearing House Certificate

By E. J. EDWARDS.
On Siiuilny afternoon In the tn'it
din of the summer of 1893, the late
Froib'ilil, t). Tappan. then president
of the (iiilhitlu National bnnlt or New

The Brent panic which marked the
first vear of President Cleveland's

height The treasury of the United
States was being drained of gold by
the operation of the so-called indies

In a terribly nervous state and that It
was slmplv nervous excitement that
was keeping him un.
" 'Are you going to do something.
are ou going to isue certificates to
morrow?' he exclaimed in a breath,
without nnv preliminaries of greeting.
'If you don't, I am a ruined man. I
have heavy obligations to meet to
morrow, and I haven't been nblo to
borrow on any sort of security. If
the clearing house doesn't act. every
thing I have will ho wiped out.'
"'Ed.' I said, 'jou look us though
you hadn't had any sleep.'
" 'I haven't,' he said. 'I haven't had
a wink of sleep for three nights on
account of tills. I can't borrow a dol
lar, and my securities are gilt edged '
" 'The thing for you to do,' I said.
Ms to go home and go to bed.'
" 'Well, but what Is tho clearing
house going to do?' he exclaimed des
perately. 'You must do something to
morrow Unless you do unless you
issue certilicates everything I havo
will be gone within twenty-four hours,
nnd my prospects will be blasted. I
shall he absolutely ruined. You will
also havo a frightful panic'
"'I can't say what wo shall do, Ed.'
I said 'I havo Just got heio. and
haven't seen any one but you yet. But
what Is tho use of your wearing your
self out in this way? No matter what
comes tomorrow, you will be better
off for a good night's sleep. If worse
comes to worst, nevertheless, jou can
start over again.'
" 'Perhaps you nro right,' ho said
'I do need somo sleep.' I think ho
suspected from my manner that tho
clearing houso would Issue certificates
in tho morning, nnd he was comfort
ed. At any rate ho wont away In a
somewhat calmor stato of mind.
