Man With the Stewpan.
From the Athenaeum: In the 90
estate, north of Pompeii, the
skeleton of a man evidently a fugitive
from the eruption of 79 A. D.
has been found. When struck by
death he was carrying, tied in a bundle
by means of a cord (made of
hemp) the following objects of value:
An exquisite silver stewpan
weighing 520 grammes, the handle
of which is ornamented with shellfish
and mollusks of various kinds; a
soup spoon with a broken handle; a
spoon for mixing hot drinks, a sliver
penny of Domitian. and two keys.
There were also lying in a heap, 1S7
copper pence, the oldest dating from
the time of Agrippa, the latest from
the time of Titus.

advertiser's best frUnd Is the medium through
THE he obtains the biggest returns for his mosdy.
One medium which la used by advertisers to a great
extent Is the circular or booklet The circular or
booklet Is always Ineffective, unless It Is verv handsome;
handsome enough to attract the eye of the man to whom It
is sent no matter how busy he may be. A booklet handsome
enough to do this almost always costs from three to
four cents apiece. There Is the mailing to count In (two
cents a copy, of course); there is the trouble In getting a list
of names, and in addressing. Altogether the cost will figure
up to about seven cents a copy for a good booklet. Two
thousand circulation In a booklet Is very large. Two thousand
circulation at seven cents is $140. I propose to show
that you can invest $140 in newspaper space and get returns
five fold of what you would got through a booklet
Newspaper Space Is Valuable
In the first place, there is the cost. For $140 you can get
a good-sized space In a newspaper of good circulation for
- quite a long time. You know your newspaper rates; you can
figure it out to suit your own instance much better than I
can. So much for cost
Now for Effectiveness
You must tell your customers how much your goods are
going to cost An advertisement without a price is like meat
without sa)t It will do you no good. How can you put
prices in a booklet when you are doing a strictly retail business'?
You have competitors; you have to change yoar
nrloos rnnsfnntlv tn meet theirs, nnd to meet other exi
gencies. The first change of a price will kill the effective- X
ness of a booklet, and where are you? Your advertisement
in a newspaper may bo changed as many times as you desire.
You are constantly up-to-date.
The Newspaper Is Effective
Any kind of a newspaper has more circulation than you
can obtain through a booklet for $140. Newspapers roach
the heart of the home. Every one reads them, and they are
far more certain to obtain close attention than any printed
matter which you would send. If you sent printed matter
of your own accord to persons who do not know you. you
would be putting yourself face to face with them without a
guarantee. They have nothing to judge the quality of your
goods by, and they can only take what you say on our own
paper and In your own way. Anybody can say as much as
When your matter appears in a newspaper of good circulation
and good standing, the newspaper Is a guarantee for
what you say. Newspapers are always particular as to whom
their advertisers are. (I speak of good newspapers always.)
Your ads will gain a value besides their Inherent one. They
will be vouched for, and this Is not to be despised. You
" have a certain fluctuating trade, which Is always valuable,
and which needs some sort of an Introduction to your store.
This introduction the newspaper gives you.
Good Paper Adds Dignity
You are known by the company you keep, you know,
and If your ads appear in a paper wh'ch holds Itself up- before
the masses as a leader, you will be known as a patron
of what Is good, and you will obtain trade from those whom
It Is worth trading with.
On all scores I consider newspaper advertising by far
the best On the score of cheapness; on the score of being
able to constantly change your announcements; on the score
of direct and Immediate returns; and on the score of being
introduced to people, to strangers, as a store which can afford
to announce its news to every one In a dignified and
straightforward manner, and this is the manner which brings
trade that pays.
