"Here's whole pages with hardly a word of reading on them." "Why, I got a lot of news from the advertising," said her mother, who had been wating patiently until Mary got through with the paper. "We learn a lot about the folks we know from the ads in the classified column, and I find out a good many interest ing things in 'lost and found' and 'help wanted.' Then I've learned a good many devices that have helped me in the house work; and father has found new things to better the re sults of his farming. Many of the new implements are first announced through the ads. I think I couldn t keep abreast of what is going on if I didn't know what was being adver tised." "Besides," spoke up father, who had come to know the publisher of the Record, "the editor tells me that the advertisements are what pays for the paper, and that he could not run it , from the subscription money alone. Of course, he wants all the subscribers ! he can get. But when Aunt Emily I Lucas stops her subscription because the new size of the paper doesn't fit her pantry shelves, she shouldn't be i surprised that the editor doesn t go j out of business.
