FALSE ECONOMY The man who Is close-fisted in spending money to go after business, has to be close-fisted in all other expenditures, for ho rarely has enough mon ey to be otherwise. The most wanton form of extravagance In business Is the penny-wise advertising system. When you tighten your purse-strings against all legitimate pub llclty bills, you thicken the cobwebs over your stock shelves; you save at the spigot of false economy only to lose at the bungholo of slow methods and fading trade. Let no man think that because he does not ad vertise his business he Is not paying the cost of ad vertising. He is, and worst of all, he Is not only paying his own advertising bills, but his competi tors' as well, without getting a lino of publicity himself to show for his expenditure. He Is paying his competitors' advertising bills. In the profit from customers' trade, that his competi tors' advertising takes away from him, In the sales that this advertising brings his competitors, that rightfully belong to him, In the Increased business and prestige his competitor Is enjoying, when this Increase in business rightfully belongs to him. Can you afford to continue a fancied economy that Is taking money out of your bank account? Can you afford to go on paying for advertising at many times more than the space rate, and let this advertising run In your competitors' name instead of yours, and keep your name out of that dally pa per? Your advertisement In your dally paper Is your show window, Just as much as -the window In front of your store, but It Is a show window that goes di rectly Into the home of your customer and permits you to display your goods while sitting In the glow of the evening lamp. If you happen to h one of those heaven blessed merchants who have very little competition to buck, that does not alter the case; you still have to pay for advertising. You pay for It In the lost sales from customers who havo decided not lo buy this season, when a good Illustration would have brought them Into lino. You pay for It In the sales that go to other cities, when customers have the opinion they can't get what they want In town, a delusion that a good Illustration and a little advertising In the East Oregonlan would smash to splinters.
