Blutte, March 11.--So far as the
controversy over the demand of the

pay the increased scale so long as
copper is above 18 cents a pound,
providing that a five year contract

)bi dlit : lrttlent stores of utite have
f;il,:: lf* very materially since the
!\vsl'spapers were closed down on ac
coauIt of the strike of the pressmen.
This taling off in trade is attributed
to the lack ofadvertising.
"A little over two years ago a
umbera of the merchannts of Butte said
that they were expending too mnuch
monaev ior advertising purposes and
proposed to reduce their expenses in
this line; but it happened that the
ml,nagrc of one of the largest stores
ivwould not agree to this plan but
he totli the others that he purposed
to oI lilOlre advertising space, as it
w is thrcugh this means that his es
tatblisinuent has succeeded in building
up such a large trade. Since that
time ail the leading merchants .f
that. city have been most liberal ad
vertisers. They now realize to the
fulest extent the efficacy of news
paper advertising.
If newspaper advertising is a patent
factor in building up the large de
partment stores, and it is admitted
to be such, systematic advertising by
ýie country stores in the local week
ly newspaperswould be just as great
a factor in building up our local
merchants. There are few of our
local merchants that are so busy that
they can find no time for the plant
ing ofthelr advertising.
The local newspaper that is all the
time advocating measures for the im
provement of your town is a much
better advertising medium than you
