Class Ad History
XXV.-FINDING A HOUSEKEEPER.

are learning the efficacy of The Missoulian class ad.
These little chapters of history have told of some of
them. Here is another:

This advertisement was published first on the morn

"Please discontinue advertisement for general house

ad costs but one cent a word. If you're out of work,
The Missoulian will print your ad free.
