A ilent Urcnaer,
Did you evar ididk wnat your ad. in
the newspaper ii doing for you? When
you close jour store in tbe evening and
go borne to your family and fireside, not
thinking about your business at all, then
it is that tbe aper is being pored over
in hundreds of homes the homes from
which your tride is drawn. And there
is your ad. doing its work silently, but
surely, and if you have taken pains to
make it attractive its work will be all the
more effective . Thin is repeated over and
over again, and is no doubt what inspired
some writer to call newspaper advertising
a "silent drun mer." Ex.
