Less than two years ago we were engaged
in a small retail butter business, and were
practically unknown in business circles. We have now one of the model Butter establishments of Washington, and in addition to our large wholesale'But
ter Egg and Cheese business, we are selling Butterine at the rate of over half a million pounds per year. Our success has been TRULY REMARKABLE,
considering the short time we have been in business, and we firmly believe it is due to the fact that we sell and have always sold BUTTER for BUTTER

Casual observers sometimes couciudc
tliat the advertising pages of a newspaper
arc neglected on account of the greater
interest in the news. Tills Is a great mis
take. Nobody knows it better than the
Over nud over again lie finds his cus
tomers passing by the superior newspaper
to get one containing the class of adver
tisements tliey want to see. A crucial
test comes when by some accident a great
paper is obliged to omit its advertisements.
The dealer's testimony is that the bujer
v Illlay it aside for a paper that has the ads.
The women want to sec the bargains;
can't get along without them; men want to
see what is advertised In their lines. No
woman who buys groceries or dry goods
or furniture, cither economically or with,
u view to getting the best, would ever
think of starting out on a shopping expedi
tion without having first seen the adver
tisements in The Times.
No man who attempts to dress well would
think of laying in a supply at the begin
ning of thcbcason without seeing first what
is offering. Of course very many gen
tlemen hne their regular tailors, shoe
makers, etc., but ho must be a very busy
or a ery careless mail who leaves every
thing to his outfitters, without looking
for hlmseir to tee what the world is doing
In the way of dress.
Of course no woman was e er so busy or
so negligent that she did not read the dry
gooods ads. and fashion papers. Then,
too, every man wants to know what is
doing in some Hue of trade he either is
or has been interested in.
There are. too, many things in the ad
vertising columns that are readable for
themselves, aside from the information
they give.
Some of the most curious things are
there. "It's a lot of fun when there isn't
uiulu to do to sit down for a quiet half
hour and laugh over the queer things, the
odd revelations by the side lights on
human nature. Tor example, read this:
"Tahuage located in Washington; agents
make big moLey selling his books. Gen
eral Agent K, this office."
Who would have supposed that the coming
here of Dr. Taimago would increase the
sale of his books to suih an extent, lint
it docs. Herc's-the proof: When a man
is willing to invest his cold tasli on any
thing you may be sure he knows sonic
thiug about It.
Then there's "Cuban parrots, Cutnn
moukejs," and the like. What sort of
market can there be for monkeys? "Nobody
but a handful of Italian organ-grinders
ever want monkeys; bJt the bird man has

of it is due to judicious use of printer's
Then look at the old clolhes man. lie
has something new In almost every paper..
See this:
"If you sang Unor for $50 a minute
you would be "hot stuff.' It would com
pensate you to tee these splendid suits and
overcoats, 'almost new,' vc are selling
for a song."
Here's one for board in Baltimore. Refer
encesrcqulred. Ttat only showshow closely
connected the two cities are. With the
new electric line, it will be practically
one town all the way.
This next tells a story of a courageous
struggle for an education. "Wanted
Young man wishes employment during a
part pf the day; an thing. Address Stu
dent, this office." And right below it
is the advertisement of the Workingmen's
Bureau of Labor. If "Student" knows
bow to do anything and Is "nghl" with
organized labor he Is pretty sure to get a
chance to work. He only needs to look
next door to his own advertisement.
Wonderful progress has been made In
the past few jcars in the matter of rtpular
buslines adtertifing. Some of the bright
est, most ingenious men and the cleverest
writers are now employed regularly by
business firms to write their catchy
and instructive addresses to the public
and prepare the dicplav that is to fill their
places with customers, while less ener
getic and up-to-date competitors worry
along, lose their ruonej, and finally sink
out of sight.
These ad-writers a new word for our
mother English are often drawn from the
ranks of regular ncwpapT workers, and
are got usually at an advance of salary.
Some of them command from $5,000 to
$10,000 a year.
Sometimes the most successful adver
tisements .ire prepared by the head or the
firm. Ability In this line occasionally takes
the place of shrewdness as a trader and by
itself brings success. This is rare, however,
nnd is a good deal like a mail being his ow 11
lawyer or doctor.
Two of the noticeable hits In advertising
recently have been one showing a letter de
manding payment of a heavy note and a
promise to sell winter clothing at the lowest
figure of the year from the beglnnlngof the
season. Both were bold strokes; both reeded
to be honest statements of facts, and both
required careful following up -with supple
mentary advertising.
litre's the way a clever merchant tailor
presents his case in The Times:
"Walk down F street, scan the shape
face appearance of every man you meet
there's no similarity no two men alike.
Why should they dress alike? To come hero
means individuality "separateness"
singleness you suggest thestyleand stuff
we do the rest save you money make 'em
fit or keep 'cm."
A clothing man, against whom the above
is directed, answers- "What a delight
ful feeling of security to know that you
have some rcdiesslucase.i garment doesn't
turn out right. Wc want every one of our
customers to feel that way we'll make
it satisfactory for eery stitch we sell
that ilocsn't wear as w- recommend it."
A furniture dealer, whose word Is his
bond, and.who has got rich I13- being square
anel giving his customers the benefit of
full half his intelligent buying and conserv
ative, progressive, energetic business man
agement, says this:
"Extension table, SG.2G and wc could
sell it for $9 Just as well. Solid oak
pollsli fmUh six foot length. Neat carv
ing a well-made, substantial table at a
remarkably low price."
Solid facts are flung at Times readers in
the following. They bring trade:
"We're moving our thoc department up
to the second floor, and we want to start
fresh. Wo want to move the department
up. but we don't want to move the shoes
up; we want to sell them off instead."
The nun who has put all the other butler
dealers on the run goes at It this way:
"Perhaps, under the most favorable con
ditions, the best Fresh Butler may be as
good as Butterine, but not one consumer In
ten thousand gets his bulter when it is ab
solutely fresh."
The advertisements by the quarter and
half-page and full page, by which a witty
attorney is drawing an Immense trade to a
Seienth street grocery are as famllTar to
everybody as the more conservative but
steady, intelligent, persistent "work by
which others are holding their own. It's a
great fight and everybody is interested.
Then tako the clothing man who says
the clothing world has been hit by High
Tariff McKinley, and the pen company that
in apparent petulance blurts out in a
quarter-page, "We might nderttse till
doomsday; some people wouldn't buy our
pens," and sticks a handsome cut of the
lien, Willi a brief description of its ex
cellences, in the middle of It.
But it is impossible fully to appreciate all
this without the artistic and skilfully done

Some people have the Idea that all the
nverage bachelor wants to call a home,
when away from the parental roof. Is a
spot iu n building large enough to contain
a bed, with e-nough chairs and hooks con
venient to hang tils clothing on, a mirror,
floor space forlils shoes, and a Kith. There
are men right here Iu Washington today,
however, men who Ilv o iu apartments that
have never yet been even scanned by fe
male eye. and jet are a perfect dream of
artistic cleverness and unique originality.
Eaeh ear sees additions to me ccn
.tingeuey of bachelors ill this city who live
"in the seclusion of their own artistic
apartments. The most of them find time
to occasionally turn momentarily from
the urgent demand -of their social or bus
iness obligations and take a loop lu their
portiere, hang a sword over that picture
or stick a few photographs in that broad
rinimeil straw hat, used last year in a
fishing excursbiD, and then hang it on
the wall. By these odd bits of atten
tion a room is soon found where an artist
might fill his notebook with ideas.
There is a tendency among wealthy bach
elors to flock together. In the Metro
politan Club chambers, the four-stcrie-d
house that borders the Metropolitan Club
building on the we.t, thirteen members of
the- club have their rooms. It is worth
while for any one to take a day off and
make the acquaintance of each and every
one of the thirteen In order to be in
vltcd to his room, if for no oilier reason.
--Undoubtedly one of the happiest concep
tions of nui-cullne ability to fit up a home
Is that dlspiaved in the apartnie-nts of
Messrs. James H. and Robert Hayden, the
brotlier lawyers. They occupy the front
room on the se-cond llnor overlooking II

room leadingdlrecily ort at therear through
dainty Persian portieres as naively drawn
as though gently tugged by some fair
feminine h.iml.
The geiKT.il furnishings of all the rooms
are made by the cluti Itself. That Is, each
apartment has Its full quota or enameled
iron bedsteads, with brass trimmings, and
its Turkish carpet and rugs. The rest is
left to the ingenuity or the occupant. Ove-r
and in the tall mahogany cabinet that tops
the mantel around the fireplace In the
corner in the front parlor of the Hay
den brothers, is a w ell selectetl display of
Japanese plan-, with here and there a rare
old French porcelain.
An oe-tasiunal book-laden cabinet about
the room Is topped with a bit of hammered
brass or a brass statuette from this or
that place where the owners or their
friends happened to be.
In one window- e-orner a low divan, as
wide as it is long, is covered with some
thiug less than twenty-five cushions, all
any couch requires. A rack of golf sticks
with the soil still clinging to them stands
beside the door. A huge Japanese vase
rests ou top of the revolving booke-ase In
one corner, while a silver corkscrew orna

Senor Antonio Bcnitez of the Spanish
legation occupies a solitary room, with
its adjacent bath, on the same Hoor, from
which he can look into the clubhouse. Thei
chamber Is marked with a quaint, yet not
stiff, plainness. The entire length of one
side is, with the exception of the bath door,
that is prettily (-en-ended with a curtain
of some Spanish stuff, borelcrcd by a tall
cherry cabinet two stories high. Through
the beveled glass doors may be seen a
cargo of Cuban cigarettes, while bisque
figures of provincial Spanish senors nnd
scnorcttas occupy the niches In the hand
some affairs. A steed image or the suppli
cant Magdalene hangs over the head of
the iron bed.
Mr. Richard Broadhead, the lawyer,
whose apartment is under the same roof,

knire," converted the back of this Black
stone into a thing of Joy and beauty, for
age3 to come by placing a picture in one
slit and n bow of ribbon in another, and
then tacking the whole thing on the wall.
