A Little Bey's Life Saved.
I have a few words to say regarding
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It
saved my little boy's life and I feel
I cannot praise it enough. I bought
a bottle of it from A. E. Steere of
Goodwin, S. D., U. S. A., and when I
I got home with it the poor baby could
! hardly breathe. I gave the medicine
as directed every ten minutes until
he "threw up" and then I thought
sure he was going to choke to death
We had to pull the phlegm out of
his mouth in great long strings. I
am positive that if I had not got that
bottle of cough medicine, .my boy

'HE advertiser's best
which he obtains
X One medium which Is used by advertisers to a great
extent is the circular or booklet The circular or
booklet is always ineffective, unless It Is very handsome
handsome enough to attract theeyc of the man to whom It
is sent, no matter how busy he may be. A booklet hand
some enough to do this almost always costs from three to
four cents apiece. There is tho 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 figuro
up to about seven cents a copy for a good booklet Two
thousand circulation In a booklet is very large. Two thou
sand circulation at seven cents Is $140. ! propose to show
that you can Invest $140 In newspaper space and get returns
five fold of what you would get through a booklet.
Newspaper Space Is Valuable
In the first place, there is the cost. For $140 you can got
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
how for Effectiveness
You must tell your customers how much your good3 aro
going to cosL An advertisement without a price is like meat
without salt it will do you no good. How can you put
prices in a booklet when you are doing a strictly retail busi
ness? You have competitors; you have to change your
prices constantly to meet theirs, and to meet other exi
gencies. The first change of a price will kill the effective
ness of a booklet, and where are you? Your advertisement
in a newspaper may be changed as many times as you de
sire. You are constantly up-to-date.
Any kind of a newspaper has more circulation than you
can obtain through a booklet for $140. Newspapers reach
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 circu
lation and good standing, the newspaper is a guarantee for
what you say. Newspapers are always particular a3 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 yon.
Good Paper Adds Dignity
You are ktySTl oy the company you keep, you know,
and if youcads appear In a paper whlca holds itself up bo
fore 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 tho score of being
introduced to people, to strangers, a3 a store which can af
ford to announce its news to every one In a dignified and
straightforward manner, and this 13 the manner which bring3
trade that pays.
