Tho "Fun" of Writing Advertisements
Do you like the fun of writing your
ads? Fine fun, isn't It? It Is fun to
be in business anyhow?fun to have
the landlord come for the rent?
screaming fun to have to send a
cheque for all those funny bills that
come In regularly every month and
simply irresistible fun to have to buy
bread and butter for the family and
plan for the future of the children.
Yes, Mr. Retailer, It Is fun?perhaps.
You kno wfrom bitter expedience
tbnt there is nothing funny nbout bus-,
iness. You do not pay your bills
from any sense of humor and neither
do people give you crodlt from the
same cause. There is little fun in
paying the wages of a first-class
salesman 'who has to assist you in
making money to pay your creditors
and allow you to tuck a small sum
snugly away in your bank against a
rainy day. It is all solemn, deadly
reality. It requires all the thought
and sales help of the highest grade you
can get at a reasonable price to car
ry through the dally tragedy .
Why should you think It fun to
write your ads? Do you realize that
It Is just as necessary to have sales
manship outside your store as it is
to have It In It If you wish to be suc
cessful? And if you are anxious to
increase your business to the point
where It will bo classed as amongst
tho best producers of the kind, you
will find that "outside" salesmanship
of the finest order Is absolutely nec
Outside salesmanship means ad
vertising that brings business. In
this category you must put your news
paper advertising?that is to say, you
put your newspaper advertising in
that class if it produces results. It
Is this production of re'sults that
makes all the difference. Only adver
tising space that contains real sales
manship will get -real returns. And
the construction ril that salesmanship
makes all the difference between suc
cess and failure.
The writing of successful advertis
ing is an art or scloncc like photo
graphy or medicine. It cannot be
?used successfully by uuiy one who has
not studied It as closely as any other
art or science. The man who. there
fore, tries to practice It for fun is
otlly wasting his money and time.
You would not allow an untrained
clerk or amateur to come into your
stojjo and sell your tutest goods to
your host customers. And you would
call anyone else who -was guilty of
such foolishness, a bad merchant.
Further, you would not expect a
clerk -whom you had engaged to sell
groceries, to compound prescriptions
or repair watches, It is just the same
with advertising salesmanship. Un
less you Know the rules of the busi
ness you cannot successfully write ads
that are absolutely sure to bring cus
tomers Into your store and money in
to your cash drawer.
If you are in business for fun it
k wise to write your own ads for
there is nothing easier or "funnier"
than to spend your money on newspa
pers for Ushly, lint if you are In bus
iness for money, it is better to get
someone to write them for you who
knows how to bring customers to your
store and. Incidentally, bw'oU your
Just let mo tell you bow "easy" it
is to write ads and then tell mo bow
much fun there Is In construing ads
on which the Increase of your busi
ness depends and on which you have
to build a great part of your future.
There are four points to every buc
cessmul advertisement: First, you
must get and hold the attention of
the possible customer in competition
with every other advertiser in the pa
per; second, you have to create Inter
est in the goods you are selling; third,
you must bring settled conviction in
to the customer's mind* that she wants
the goods more than the money In her
pocket or bank roll; and last, but
by no means least, you must get the
customer Into your store to actually
buy the goods, That's all there Is to
lit Easy, Isn't It?
There iRre WOll defined rules for
doing all this but those rules have
to bo learned. After those rules bnve
been acquired, you muy, apply cy
chology and many other loligles" to
got the desired results, the kjn?l *f
results that has bull? larr inrtunes
for Wonamakcr, *.\>r great do^aitmcnt
store merchant, and others. To treat
this?iiicstton In a spirit of fun Is like
a butcher trying to undertake the
practice of a physician. He may know
how to carve meat but ho does not
know how to cut out your appendix
so successfully that you can live af
If you are really bent on fun. Mr.
Retailer try * base-ball or solitaire
whist but keep away from writing ad
vertisements that are not only wast
ing your time but preventing your
store from getting that increased suc
cess to which It Is entitled.
If you cannot readily get a local
man to construct your ads, subscribe
to a syndicated advertising service.
Thero are several on the market.
These services are usually supplied
In series of llfty-two with lifty-two
copper-plate electros of the Illustra
tions, one for each week in the year,
at prices ranging from one dollar per
week up. Much of the advertising In
thoso services Ins been classed as
equal to Tee b"Sl 5 has made suc
cess for the big city department stores
and national advertisers. Some re
duced facsimiles of t'.is kind of adver
tising may be seen at the top of thl?
This syndicated advertising ser
vice puts within the reach of even the
smallest retailer, advertlsments that
he could not obtain individually for
many hundreds of dollars. They aro
constructed by men who have a coun
try wide reputation as retail advertis
ing experts and who are paid large
salaries not only for their skill but
for their experience in constructing
just such advertisements as have made
success for thousands of merchants
In the same position as yourself.
Full particulars of what is prob
ably the most successful of those ad
vertising services may be obtained
from the editor of this newspaper.
I earnestly advise retailers to make
early application for only one service
enn be sold In each town and if you
are a live merchant you are certainly
losing money every day you are with
out Buch a service.
DANGER IN DELAY.
Kidney Diseases Are Too Dangerous
f?r Laurens People to Neglect.
The groat danger of kidney troubles
Is that they get firm hold before the
sufferer recognizes them. Health Is
gradually undermined. Backache,
headache, nervousness, lameness, sore
ness, lumbago, urinary troubles, drop
sy, gravel and Brlght's disease, fol
low as the kidneys get worse. Don't
neglect your kidneys. Help the kid
neys with the reliable and safe rem
edy, Doan's Kidney Pills, which has
cured people right here in Lnurens.
Mrs. J. D. Lewis. Laurens Mill
House No. 1, Laurons. S. ('., says:
"Doan's Kidney Pills did me a great
deal of good and I advise every one
troubled by disordered kidneys to pro
lit by my experience. My kidneys
wore In bad shape and f suffered se
verely from backaches and headaches.
Black specks often came in front of
my eyes and I was so restless that
1 always felt worn out when I got
up in tlio morning. After* I bad used
different medicines without success,
I learned of Doan's Kidney Pills. They
restored nie to good health.

? THE LAUKENS CEMETERY. *
The following essay was written by
Miss Mary Blackwell and won for the
writer the third prize In the recent
contest of The Advertiser for the best
essay on the City Cemetery:
The improvement of conditions at
the Laurens Cemetery within tho past
nine monthB has been most wonder
Where formerly there was practical
ly no enclosure, now there is a rock
wall all the length of tho street, with
a nice wire fence on top, being en
closed at the northeast and south sides
by a high wire fence.
The bank has been graded off and
has pretty grass growing on it. There
are two gates, one near the north
west corner which is used only on
occasion and the other at the south
west corner which is open at seven
o'clock, A. M., and locked for the
night by the custodian at seven-thirty
The custodian aittyu keeps tho walks
and roads in order, and to*" a charge
(by the executive committee) of three
dollars each per annum ho keeps
clean and neat the individual lots of
all who wish It done. ?
As a result of the efforts of the
committee and by reason of the awak
ening of general interest in the matter,
many lot-owners have recently gone to
considerable trouble and expense to
beautify and keep clean their lots.
Where weeds and wire grass lately
grew, flowerB are now tho rule rather
than exception; and, all about the
place which seemed so desolate and
forgotten, there is now the undenia
ble evidence of care and love.
The benefit to the community of
such a transformation and tho civic
necessity to continue this movement
and never let It stop ought to be obvi
ous because it speaks well for the
town to have the cemetery well tak
en care of, and it is where our loved
ones are buried.

Those Sudden Pains in the Back are Twinges that
tell you of Hidden, Dangerous Kidney Troubles.
When tho kidneys nro sick, sharp
lartlng pains strike you in the back
loins or sides pains that almost take
your breath away, and often make you
cry out In agony.
It is almost Impossible to mistake
these kidney pains, for they seem to
center about the small of the back,
where the kidneys nro located.
Still there are many persons who
think backache Is merely a muscular
trouble?something that is expected
to pnss away with a little rest, aided
by a plaster or by rubbing with lini
Sick kidneys cannot get well alone.
They need quick help; If it Is not
given, the useful work of the kidneys
stop. The filtering of the blood Is
suspended. Poisons circulate freely
with the blood?attack muscles, brain,
nerves and vital organs. The kidneys
swell and throb and that Is what
makes those sudden stabs of pain In
tho back. You won't be rid of the
trouble until the kidneys are cured.
. pore is no other remedy for sick
kidneys quite equal to Hloodine Blood
and Kidney Tablets, This simple veg
etable formula has been used for 100
years and has never been excelled be
cause It Is a remedy for the kidneys
only?does not act on the bowels or
On any other organs. It soothes while

and irritation, cures backache, regu
lates the urine and restores, a per
