J. B. Mix's Admirable Keopoane to ao
Interesting Toait on m Ketable Oe
raslen at Ottomwa.
The Ottumwa, Iow, Courier recently
entered upon the enjoyment of the occu
pancy of a new home, erected especially
for it, and at a banquet given in honor of
the event. J. . Sax, of the Lon
don Clothing store here, responded to
the toast, "Newspaper Advertising for
the Retailer." In introducing the speak
er, Col. Ilarter, the toast master said:
'The only fault I have to find with the
gentleman who is to respond to this
toast, is that he writes such interesting
advertisements, that I read them through
before I discover them to be such. J.
B. Sax will now be heard."- Mr. Sax wit
Gentlemen: In trying to even attempt
a few remarks upon a theme so vast and
at the same time so hackneyed, I am re-
miEo?d of a story.
A darkey who was on trial for a minor
cSense (in which some poultry figured as
plaintin) appeared without counsel.
"Have veu no lawyer? asked the
"Can t you get one?"
"No, Sau," replied the darkey.
Don't you wish me to appoint a law
yer for you to defend you?" asked the
"Mo, Sab! I just thought I d leabe my
case to tie ignorance ob de court.
In leaving this case or subject to me I
tear you are leaving it largely t the ig'
norance "ob de court." Newspaper ad
vertising has become a necessity for the
retailer, and 1 might add, to the newspa
per as well. Without it, the retailers'
advertising would be restricted to narrow
channels atd he would be bereft of the
greatest force to stimulate bis busi
la what other manner could he reach
daily or even weekly with bis announce
ments as many prospective customers? In
what otber manner cou.d he so indelibly
encrave his name and business upon the
minds of ihe public. Newspaper adver
tising is gradually superceding all other
modes. Painting fences is growing ob
solete, because tbc patnt washes oil and
often our gentle zephyrs carry the whole
fencu awav, and it seemed to me during a
drive into the country that the signs
which did remain baa largelv become
monuments to firms which were dead and
gone, or, perhaps, rather monuments to
their folly in trusting to such advertising
to build up a lasting business. The
hand bill usually sleeps in the gutter
unread ana the circular is
oftenest consigned to the waste
basket or forgotten in an hour. As long
as the world hungers for news and as long
as enterprising newspapers like the Cour
ier lay it before its readers, ao long will the
properly worded and displayed newspaper
"ad be the most tflective and profitable
mode of advertising for the retailer.
I will not take time to discuss "Does
Advertising Pay." We need only glance
about us and view the palatial surround
ings to know that it does pay, and our
genial host, Mr. .Lee, will agree wnh us.
We retailers take a deep and "costly'J
pride in this perfected newspaper home,
perhaps the finest in the west, and if for
no o'her reason only that we have helped
somewhat to pay for it and should any
part of it remain unpaid we assure the
Courier that the retailers will assume the
There is just one idea I would like to
touch upon. We all nave been person
ally solicited to patronize some house,
make a bill with them. This is advertis
ing pure and simple but not far reaching
enough for the retailers. Now if the so
licitor was gentlemanly, polite, of pleas
ine ad Jress, had tact, etc., mere than
likely he made an impression and we may
have made a bill with him. Bad the so
licitor been rude, impolite, disagreeable,
we probably did not go near h's house
It seems to me that in the same manner a
newspaper, which is clean, moral, high
toned, which has the confidence and re
spect of the public is a better advertising
medium for the retailers than a news
paper not so favorably regarded. Proper
newspaper advertising is of such great
benefit to the retailer that the publisher
must often be pained to note how persis
tently some merchants kill the goose
which lays tbe golden egg. An adver
tisement which is not truthful or which is
at all misleading will not repay tne re
tailer for tbe cost of the space and make
his after announcements less valuable
But ray allotted time is up, and I believe
you are not more elad than lam. I thank
you for your attention.
