Newspaper Advertising. That advertising pays is de monstrated by the statistical statement made after exhaustive investigation, that more than eighty per cent of all the firms who fail, failed to do newspaper advertising. 44 We have come to that time in our business evolution” says an exchange, when not to advertise means failure. We cannot fol low the methods that our fathers used. We must keep our busi ness before the people, constant ly before the public. If we do not do this the more enterprising concern will pass us by. It. is the testimony of all gen eral advertisers that money spent for advertising in news papers pays, chat it is a good in vestment, that it returns good dividends. Merchants who have not be come thoroughly indoctrinated witli the doctrine of publicity, often make the mistake of cut ting down their advertising ap propriations when a little wind of adversity begins to blow: wh< n, indeed, that is the very tim i they ought to press their business. The business man who succeeds and the man who succeeds is the man who keeps everlastingly at it. The man who never allows temporary re verses to unnerve him, is the the m vn who achieves success. All the time is the time to ad. ven ise: but the best time is when bu C'juuUiuiiii arc not Just right and your business is a little disposed to lag. —Hattiesburg News.
