DKABn^ADEHs: We having been mis
represented to yon through the col- |
limns of the Republican, by a com- >
munication, and through the Adverti
.•»er, an advertising medium, as well as
througji the dodger called the Pro- j
gramme, We hereby present to you the
Holiday Journal and let you all judge
for yourself, wishing to act goner jus
to fchcs9 who try to injure ns.
To The Public.
We recommend the following article
to the consideration of our business
One method of advertising is the
handbill system, by which the hotels
are daily inundated. During the busi
ness season one boy after.another will
go the rounds, and in this way an at
tempt is made to obtain trade. Of
these, however, the gvea'eç part is
wasted, since the waiter generally
picks them up and throws them into
the street, and the next day a fresh
mundation takes placo,.. Experience
has clearly demonstrated that the
most efiloioent method of advertising
is found in fchp judicious use of news- to
paper columns. The ground upon
which newspaper advertising is based
is human confidence, since we cannot
avoid believing that which we con
vtantly read. This confidence is
sometimes abused, but still it is evi
Jeut that a gooâ advertisement will, if ;
ffloiently repeated, carry popular
opinion. Men who advertise with the
greatest persistency eventually reach
success. There is a military principle
involved in this method, sinon the at
tide advertised should be presented to
the public by repeated assaults. Tbe
correct view, which experience brings
to each man, that advertising should
bo included in the general estimate of
regularly as store rent,
clerk hire and insurance. It is often
said thut a good stand at a high rent
;s better than a poor one rent free.
Advertising brings a man before tho |
publio in a way that makes any stand i
good. The best stand you

the arrest of Mr. Hayden, and the
disinterment of the remains of the
dead girl for examination, it was
claimed that all of the arsenio whioh
still in a box
Hayden had bought
in the barn. There a box was fouAd
taken from this box, At this point j
recourse by the prosecution was had
to Prof. Dana, who visited Euglaud,
studied the manufacture of arsenic,
and then, by the use of his microsoope
the crystals, demonstrated that tho
arsenio Irom tho girls stomach
tirely different lot from that hidden
in the barn, and that it was identical
with tue arsenio sold by lyler, at the .
time when Hayden is known to have
bought Ins onnoe, The oonolusion
sought to be established ia that a part |
of the arsenio bought by Hayden was .
nsed to poisen the girl, and that the
rest was flung away, and that tbe barn
arsenic was bought elsewhere after
ward merely as a blind. The crystals
of thp stomach arsenic are three or
four times, as large as those of the
barn arsenic, but none of them are
large enough to be visible without the
microscope. Hereafter criminals will
do wed to jreoognize in soienoe ono of
