THURSDAY, DECEMBER 16. _ NEW INDUSTRIES. The secretary of the Chamber of I'onumree yesterday sent out an nouncements of the regular meeting •oniglit. ’I he subject to be discussed is “.New Industries. ' and the secre tary asks the members not to stay :.way for fear that a quorum will not be present, as has frequently been t.ie case. lie has assurances that 1 here will be a quorum and that the meeting will be one o finterest. § We hope me is right; in fact, we be lieve he is. The subject of new lu lus! ries which came up for brief dis •tission at the last meeting developed considerable interest, and we bulieve Uio members are anxious to take [•art in the further consideration of he matter. As we have remarked before, the j attracting of outside capital to Uliie-j field, and the securing of now enter prises is one of the most important departments of the chamber, and it is one to which but little attention mis been paid within tho ]>ast few months. Now that the country Is be ginning to free itself from the Titanic embrace of the panic, capi tal will In' casting atjgui for Invest ment, and it's nobody's little bunco g«;in«* n> try to induce It to come to ei ii t ,<■ i locations in North % Ani' i< i.

THE DIFFERENCE. It would b»‘ u difllcult matter to convince the merchants and business men of Minefield that circularizing and handlnllizing are not excellent forms of advertising. Here is an experience, however, not to ho doubted, which tends to prove the contrary: "A in» reliant in one of the large eastern cities,” says an ad vert techs’ magazines, ‘ composed a circular let ter recently that looked to him like a trade-winner. IP* mailed 2o,00b copies to a select list of names at a: expense of $8.70. The not profit on the resulting orders was $27.80. lie showed the letter and the result to an acquaintance in another line o. business, who persuaded him to print the same letp r. word for word in a local newspaper. The nt wspaper ad cost $124. The profits on tne sales directly attributed to it within three days were $962.70, with mall 'orders j still coining in at the end of that time."
