THE COUNTRY NEWSPAPER.
W. R, Hearst Pays Tribute to the
The Hearst newspapers have more
than once called the attention of bus
iness men and citizens is general to
the importunt work that is done by
the editors of the smaller newspapers
and to the great value of those news
papers as advertising mediums.
It would be impossible to keep this
government going, impossible at least
to keep representative and democratic
government alive in this country If It
woe not for the thousands of news
paper editors scattered throughout the
Iftnd?every one of them a watcher
and an observer, a vigilant policeman
In politics and public affairs.
Wherever two railroads cross in the
United States and there Is' a town or
Village, there is?fortunately for the
country?a local editor.
The editor watches the two rail
roads, he w&tche* the affairs of his
township, county, state and nation.
He talks dally or weekly to his fel
low citizens concerning affairs that
most vitally interest them. lie is for
them an eye that does not sleep, a
man alert nnd devoted to those that
are his constituents.
If the rnilroad crossing kills too
many, If the railroads combine to
charge too much or serve too poorly.
If the judge, governor or mayor seems
more of a railroad official than a peo
ple's official, the editor is there to tell
nig metropolitan newspapers with
circulations running into many hun
dreds of thousands dally, have a pe
culiar power of their own.
Rut il" you took all the metropolitan
newspapers of the United States and
weighed them in tho balance against
the press of the small cities and towns
of America, it would be its though you
weighed a city office building against
Pike's Peak ?and tho local press would
be Pike's Peak.
The local editor speaks to bis read
ers as one friend speaks to another.
They know him by sight. They know
his record. They know the hard light
that be has made and Is making. They
know for how small a reward he ren
ders efficient unselfish service. And a
word from him means more than many
columns from some anonymous and
unknown "editor of the big city."
The politicians of this country know
well the power of the local editor.
They respect it and fear It?and it is n
gootl thing for the country that they
A man writing fearlessly in some
congressman's or gome senator's home
town can do more to keep that official
"straight" than all the metropolitan
newspapers put together,
Public men know the power of the
local editor and of the local newspa
per. It is a pity that the business men
of the country ..re Ignorant of that
The man who has something really
worth while to advertise could, if he
would use the local newspapers Intel
ligently, multiply bis sales by ten.
make himself known to millions that
do not know hint, and put himself at
the bead of his line of competition.
If the automobile manufacturers
who attract attention just at this
moment would put their advertising
Intelligently in the local newspapers,
paying a good, fair rate and offering
a good value they could very soon
change the output of automobiles In
America from 110,000 In one year,
which was the record of 1910, to ">00,
000, or 1,000,000 in one year?and this
is no exaggeration.
The smallest of the euntry news
papers has among Its readers one or
five or then or a hundred men that
could be made to buy a car now and
will buy one sooner or later. Some
intelligent auftomoHil'Q manufacturer
with the right kind of product will
realize this and sell tens of thousands
of cars through the local newspapers
before his competitors know what has
The average of prosperity and of
wealth among '.he readers of a coun
try newspaper Is far greater than
among the readers of a metropolitan
dally, and In proportion to the cost
of advertising. Intelligent publicity
through the country newspapers gives
by far tho best results.
What we have said about automo
bile advertising refers to advertising
1 In other lines. The dwellers In the
cities, readers of the metropolitan
dallies, have before their eyes the
temptations and attractions of the
great stores, which cannot be reached
by the readers of the country newspa
per. If our business men realized heir
opportunities they would fight for par
cels post, and they would make of ev
ery county newspaper an active dis
tributing agency, doubling and treb

shall say It again. Inasmuch as there'

.Han Bought h Bottle of Hudson's Liver
lone, Then Took It Back and Asked
lor His Money and (Jot it.
A man recently Hied out the guar
antee which Laurens Drug Co. gives
with every bottle of Dodson's Liver
Tone. He bought a bottle and then
went back to the drug store and said
the medicine hadn't helped him.
This druggist Just reached Into his
cash register and took out a half- dol
lar, the price of the bottle of Liver
Tone, and handed it back to the gen
tleman. But he didn't take the money.
He owned up that he was Just
trying the guarantee and, as a
matter of fact, he had found Dod
son's Liver Tone the best remedy for
constipation and biliousness he had
ever tried, "why," he said, "my wife
wouldn't be without a bottle In the
house for anything. It'e the best
thing in the world for the whole
family, and the medicine that I profer
to take or to give to my children for
a lazy liver."
Laurens Drug Co. a el I'd Dodson's
Liver Tone and guarantees It to start
the liver without violence. It la taking
the place of calomel everywhere. If
you buy a bottle and don't find this
pleasant-tasting vegetable liquid the
best thing to start a lazy liver, he will
hand your money back with a smile.
