THE PEOPLE'S BAKERY Hays, - Kansas Loans and Insurance Grain -:- Livestock -:- Land W. J. MADDEN Government Bonds Bought and Sold Hays, Kansas LA (BY R. KENNETH EVANS) At a casual glance or a passing thought it seems remarkable how rapidly some firms or individuals acquire a large and lucrative trade; but when the matter is investigated it is esaily explained, as nothing is so successful in a business as energy and enterprise, coupled with industry and honorable dealing, and in this connection it is our pleasure to make mention of Markel, the' Hays photographer. Mr. Markel started in business at Hays about November Jst, 1915. Previously hehad worked in some of the largest studios in Kansas City, Missouri, as well as two of the largest photo-supply houses in the country, where new things or ideas are origin ated. He worked in "Bert's Photo Shop" which makes a specialty of theatrical photographs; was first vice president of the Central Kansas Photo graphers' Club; assistant press photographer for the Kansas City Post in 1915. He makes aspecialty of the different kinds of photographs, also a different kind of advertising which was given an extensive writeup by the secretary of the Photographers' Asso ciation of America. His business has increased since ' he has been in Hays, from twenty to seventy-five per cent each year. If e has received orders from numer ous people outside of Hays, for work, some from noted persons. The following is a quotation from the Missouri Valley Photographer: "Fifty-one sittings, nothing special, just plain business in three days is pretty good business, isn't it? This is what Markel does real often at Hays, Kansas. Why, It comes from the system of adver tising Mr. Markel uses, the best in the country, and all original." The growth of art culture and refinement has had its effect upon photography, and the photo grapher of today must be a man of large ideas, abil ity and thorough training, to compete with the class of men who are now making it an art-science instead of a mechanical trade. We arc convinced of this fact if we look for a moment at what constitutes an equip ment sufficient for the production of an artistic photograph. First, the head of such an establish ment must possess a perfect knowledge of his busi ness that will enable him to make a perfectly har monious picture in lighting and posing, 6o retouched that all there is of character and individuality re mains and the blemishes removed and subordinated. The picture must be printed to show up to the best advantage, must be of the proper hue or tone, and the final finishing neat and workmanlike. Mr. Markel, by pursuing a course on the principles we have indicated above, now has one of the best gal leries in the county, and having in his studio the fin est and latest improvements in instruments and other accessories known to photography, and having made a study of the art, is in a position to meet all the re quirements constituting first-class artistic work. f - .
