Cozard is a town of 1,300 population, located near two larger towns. Fred Anderson started in business there with a capital of $3,000, $2 290 of it borrowed. That was in 1906. He started in a little frame building. Last year ho did a business of $300,000 ami his store now mtains 3,700 square feet of space. The first ten years he did little or no advertising and just dragged along Then he started advertising in the lo cal paper. He has been at it ever since and his business has grown steadily to its present proportion*. He 'gives all the credit to advertising. Last year he spent 1 J ,i per cent of his income for advertising. He says he could afford to spend twice that much. He has a duplicating machine and d°o» lots of direct-by-mail advertis ing and he improves any and every opportunity for keeping his store be f° re (he public.
