Mexico hs a land having supcrb re

THREE PER CENT ON SALES
Competent business experts lay
down the rule that a business may
well appropriate 3 per cent on its
gross sales for advertising. Many
'ests of a 3f er cent advertising out
lay have resulted in increasing busi
ness 33 1-3 per cent.
To manv people 3 per cent wi!l
seem a rather small amount for a
business to spend to make itelf
known and to communicate its offer
ings to the public. Many conceins
spend a good deal more than tha1,
and find it nays. nnd that they could
not exist without it.
Publicity is reckoned as one of the
essent ial expenses of the up to date
business. It no more expeets to avo'd
it than to avoid insurance on its
stock or cost of clerk hire or rent.
You can't sell goods unless the peo
ple know what you have to ofTer, and
3 por cent seems a moderate tax for
erctting that information to the public.
