ALL THE CLAS8Y BIRDS AT THE WHEELING MEETING WILL BE BROUGHT HERE. The annual exhibition of the Fair mont Poultry and Pet Stock Associ ation will he held In the old postofflce room in the Masonic temple instead of the armory, as has been announced. The change makes it more convenient for all parties concerned. It is said that'the room will afford .better ac commodations- than any place tnat a show has been held in the state. The change was made late yesterday afternoon when it was learned that the Fairmont Gas Company would not be ready to move its offices into the old postofflce room until some time the week following the chicken show or later. Mr. C. H. Evans, the general manager of the gas company willingly consented to let the promoters of the , exhibition have the room for the show. Fairmont nor Marlon county has ever had anything In a poultry ex hibit that will compare with the one that will be seen here next week. Thousands of birds will be seen. The best of tho blue blooded aristocracy of the barnyard will be seen in much larger numbers than ever before. All of the classy birds that are at the Wheeling show will me here, accord ing to the statement of Judge William F. Auerswald, who will arrive here Monday after spending Sunday at his homo in Harmarsyille, Pa. The show will be open to the public Tuesday at noon and will be open each night until eleven o'clock each night until Friday "night. A general admission of twenty-five cents will bo charged. The price of admlsion to children is ten cents. School children have tho opportunity to get special tickets. On Tuesday afternoon the school teachers will accompany their pupils. I There will be no charge on this oc-| caslon and it is hoped that hundreds j of the little people will avail them selves of the opportunity of seeing the 1 birds. The teachers are requested to | arrange their visits so that they will i come between the hours of two ana | six o'clock. I Judging will start Tuesday morning and the colored ribbons will tell the winners. Judge Mcintosh, who pre-1 sided over the poultry show here last j year, will assist Judge Auerswald and, the two working the judging of the fowls will proceed lively. One Judge will take the American classes and the other will take the smaller classes. On Friday night it will be known who has won the gold watch displayed j in IUehldaffer & Brownfleld's Bhow window and the wrist watch seen In A. B. Scott's window. Never has there been so much in-1 terast manifested in the local poultry j show as this year. The association | is building and people who had noth- ] ing to do with the enterprise at first have become enthusiastic over the matter and are giving the association substantial support. I WEEK OF PRAYER CL08ED LAST NIGHT The week of union prayer services was brought to a close last evening at the First Baptist church, when an interesting service, was conducted by Rev. W. I.

Western Farmer Successfully Copes With Conflagration by Littla Blaza of Hla Own-Why Not Try Hie Tao tiea on the Mail Order Menacaf Printed Matter a Great Help. .[Copyrighted, 1814, by Tbomaa J. Sullivan.] Tbe concern which persistently and consistently advertises brings to Itself great reward In tbe form or Increased business. Fences, roe lis and trees are covered w/.b print and paint Tbe ?bower of advertising In tbe sbape of handbills Is Incessant. They are put Into one's band at every step?at the church door aud In hotels. In public vehicles, tlirnst under private doors and sent by millions through the mails. Glittering Advertising Maze. Tbe only road to commercial success leads through a glittering maze or ad vertising. Great boats, bearing on their sails hope advertisements, sail up and down all season before crowded watering places, and now and then a rain of advertisements conies from a wander ing aeroplane. When daylight falls tbe magic elec tric Ught throws advertisements on large screens In conspicuous places In botb large and smoll cities. Shout From Mountain Top, Climb to tbe mountain top and shont for a solution of the retail mall order evil, and bnclt over the bills will come tbe answer In tbe echoing cry "Adver tise!" The life, tbe fnme. the snccess. the hope and future of commerce He In that one magic word. Advertising Is unquestionably tbe weapon whicb will make the communi ty worthless for the retail catalogue bouses, but It Is not absolutely neces sary tlut printed matter be tbe whole thing. Personal snd Individual advertising 1b most helpful. It Is such advertising that gives re'ill mall order houses their trade. And through advertising the local merchants enn deprive them of mupb of tbe trade that cornea from their community. Fight the Prairie Fin. The i'estern furtner lights the prnlrle .lire .wjk pilule lire of. ysjownj'jr^ilch. kept always under control, be su uses tlmt the bigger Are. finding ifo riiel there on which to feed, sweeps by and leaves him safe. '' 3 JH So, in your advertising, yon have yonr Bavlng (Ire with which to light the consuming competition of retail mall order houses. Tbe printed matter, or coarse, must continue to he tbe main reliance for nrging people to enter your store. Show windows, however good, are sure to be seen only by a few of those who might need to trade with you, while personal Invitations cannot be given qnlckly enough to a sufficient number to answer everyday purposes. It is through printed matter that the retail mall order bouse offerings are constantly made, and, if for no other reason than to prove the determination at least to match their efforts for trade In your community, use the local press and printed matter enough to let no one whoso trade should be yours forget that you are in a position to fill his wants. Originality Best Method, The local merchant should dwell at length on the fact that be delivers after tbe gooda uave been seen and be fore the money has been paid for them, and when It comes to making good, should anything go wrong, he Is right at hand, not a thousand miles away. A reputation for originality Is con tinually being sought by most mer chants, and one can get it mors easily by being natural In every move. Ad vertising that Bounds like yoo Is not only cure to bring the greatest results, but It la also the one kind of advertis ing your competitor cannot successful ly Imitate. It is true that some self styled ad vertising experts have studied the dic tionary, the grammar and the type specimen books until they are able to talk a Jargon that makes advertising? by which we mean printed matter seem very much of a mystery to the average man. Operate Like Pickpockets. The mill order bouse system experts In the advertising art ore something Uke'the pickpocket who, In sn attempt to divert suspicion from hi mseir. Joins the throng and ahouts "Stop thief!" as loudly as any one. Look through the mail order cataloguea and yon will And that nearly all'of them will tell yon that their houses are the cheapest places to buy; that they have the best facilities.
