He changes his ads often, keeping ttiem fresh and attract ive. He has a different ad in this week Circular AdvertiKiiix. As we saiil last week, all advertising pays if directed bv a person who is at all sane. Advertising bv circulars or (lodgers undoubtedly pays; but we be lieve the best result is obtained when it is done as a supplement to newspa per advertising. It one or the o'.her is to be abandoned, the shrewd adver tiser will prefer the newspaper every time. A good newspaper is read on an average by live people; but the adver tiser by circulars is doing mighty well if he is sure of one reader to ev ery circular. Take an instance, A has $:! to spend for advertising. He goes to the printiug shop and spends thi amount for 1000 large dodgers, and hires him a boy to distribute them at a cost of ten cents. The boy throws them in wagons, and down on the pavements; bauds them to people, some of whom read then, some put them in their pockets, and some toss them away unread; the boy may thee chuck a tew hurdred of them under the side walk to get rid of them. That part of A's circulars which are read pay him; the others are worthless. R also bus sm to spend fur advertising. He spends some little time in preparing an ut (ractivetd that will appeal to tlie ne.': ule and then troe? and buvs s!v inebo'. r ,i (.jrcuhitioe l.at uauer is dis- j fllj u tttl i ' 1 itO iioiiii'S without iurther cost to the advertiser; it is read by oOOft ,0 00(H) . u,t it has weight because M it atmcars in the faniiiv oarer.
