H til V Tl lE STAR solicits advertising patronage on business principles not merely because it helps the town (though it does) but because it pays the business men to advertise in our columns; and this fact is in a decree as much to our own advantage as it is to theirs. We strive to make it pay them. We know1 that" if a'merchant runs an ad in our columns and profits by it, he becomes a better customer of ours and other merchants note his success and do likewise. That judicious advertising in our columns CAN be made profitable we offer the following facts as reasonable argument: 1WCT 03TI3. Thk Star has a circulation of over uoo-undoubtcdly the largest bona tide circulation of any paper in the Sfete outs.de o on each of the 1200 copies rightly est.rn.ted to read by h o, 'that gives Us 6,ooo readers weekly-and a weekly talk w.th t .at manj people will build up any merchant's business. Here it may be sta t :d that 'advertising is like talking, the only difference be.ng thai the peo ple you talk to have more time to reflect over what you say in jour ad than what you say verbally Therefore make your ad .mpress.ve.

They have learned to love it as a member of their family, come of these men read no other paper tha.i Thk S tliv 1 e its progress and remember its patrons w.th their .patron- e i Papers thaiplease subscribers pay advertisers. lacM of importance to adversers. FACr'J'WO. The Star is not a cheap paper. Its subscription price is ,a third higher than any other paper in Central Mississippi, yet it is taken by more people than any other paper in the same territory. That's a greU poot fonadi-ertisers, t!"'y want; to advertise in a paper whose readers have the most money to spend. The best people ' .vant the best paper to read even if it does cost a little more, and, consequently, the Star circulates among more of that class than any other paper does even among people who have less money to spend. That may sound egotistical but "facts are stubborn things." Equipage is as necessary to the success cf a paper as an advertising 1 .i . -i :.. n( .mrrototinn For five vears the uium as uie suu m .v.v..... 1 i , -,i,i;rr nfw mntprinl to its office.
