Advertise An exchange says : Maybe
you think that people don't like to read
advertisements J Jf you do you are much
mistaken. J'rcsli, well-put well-placed ad
vcitisements are news ! They arc welcomed,
read nay, studied! The newspaper that is
alive with them is increasingly acceptable
and so is the business houe that knows how
to get them up. po-sessed withal with the
sagacity and neive to keep them up.
Take Yorit Lor vl Pai'EK A man in Marion
county last week savcl l-" by taking n
local paper, the Mercury, and there i- a man
in this county, near Brown-ville, w ho told us,
a -hort time ago, that he had made anMJ-aere
tract of land bv being a reader of the Demo
crat. He had been w anting for a long time to
buy .in .. adjoining hi- farm, but could getno
track ol thcownei, who was a non-re-ident of
the Skite, and finally aw it adveiti-ed for
tax sale in the JJemociat. ile attended the
sale and bought it for a nominal sum, and is
now the owner of it. Albuun JJemocrat.
Warxivo to DrLiMUENr Snisntusnis. A
Jiussian paper announces that a belief in the
approaching end of the woild has seized on
the Cossacks of the JJon. 31iny, especially
aged people, are giving up wordly allairs,
wening a shroud, and onk-ring their coilhis.
On every road arc men repaiiivg to Mo-cow
to be consecrated priests, in order that the
smallest village may have its own priest and
church. 'J lie Russian paper fails to state
whether its delinquent subscribers have taken
the scare and paid up. That to our mind
would be stronger evidence of the approach of
the Millennium than any thing that a siiper
'stitious Cos'sack could advance.
Don't Re vd Advkutisiments. Occasionally
a business man is encountered who professes
to bclice that" people don't lead advertise
ments any how !" A greater mi-take is sel
dom made. If a typographical error creeps
into Jin ail. if. soon becomes the talk of the
neighborhood, and if the people do not read'
ads. how do they drop on errors witn sucii
facility ? The other day the advertisement, of
the Centennial Rotaurant appeared, in which
the woi d " eating" was set up " fating," where
linon we weie dulv notified of the error by
seven Salinasitcand one Chinaman, and last-
y, the Monterey Herald felt in duty bound to
iotify us also. Dtuhj J!eeurdci Salinas City,
"It Pays to Anvumsr." This is true in
every department of business, and no one ap
preciates its truth more fully than S. II.
Thompson. Some time since he received the
Agency, for this county, of the Cunningham
"Garden City Clipper Plow,' and immediate
ly advertised the same in our paper. Creen
B. Smith, 'sq.. a patron of the ("azette, saw
the advertisement and forthwith rushed to
Thompson's and pui chased four of these cele
brated plows which at once have sprung into
popular favor. No mater lio'.v good and valu
able an aiticlc may be, a meichant or dealer
may keen it upon his shelves, or in his store
for 'months, or even years, and but lew will
know anything of its good qualities, unless he
advertises. 1 oryeais Mr. Thompson carried
on business here, and spent but little for
advertising. U ithin the past two years his
business has increased nearly double, and he
attributes it to judicious advei tising. J f you
