Advertising is looked upon nosw te quite different to what it was fifty u- years ago. That far back it was Df looked upon with suspic'ious and id was taken to mean that the quali. ig ty of the goods advertised was ra. ,t, ther inferior, as it seemed to re er quire an unusual effort to effect se sales. Today the tendency is ein he tirely changed and the man or e- firm that refuses to advertise is o- looked upon with suspicion. Ad ry vertisiug has created confidence in ot advertising goods, and the man ill who will not advertise lends color le- to the idea that his wares will not stand the searchlight of publicity. -DODSON TIMES.
