TALKS ON ADVERTISING XVII -Some Ad- . vertising Be's By Henry Herbert Huff COPYRIGHT. 1900. BY AMERICAN PRESS ASSOCIATION "Mr. Business Man, I want to give you some good advico on writing copy for ads. - "Be natural. Write "copy as you would talk. If your friend Jones came in, you probably would slap him on the shoulder and say : Ike, I want you to see those swell ties I got in yester day; prettiest colors you ever saw. Come over here and Took at them. See tha striped one and the brown dotted pattern! Aren't they fine?' In putting this into the ad. write the same way. Don't say, 'We beg to announce to the patrons of our men's section the arrival of several hundred new ties in all of the latest styles and colorings.' Don't do it! Try writing in conver sational style. Put individuality into it and see if it doesn't get more readers. "Be Specific. Don't try to advertise everything in the store at once. Select one or two items. Describe fully and give price. Give a whole ad. to one article or at least no more than one line of goods. If space is very limited, run Hke items in together. Except in clearance and special sales do not mix. lines of goods. If there be but one item the reader pays strict attention and remembers what you say, but a confusing assortment of things makes it possible for him to center attention on none in particu lar. Change ads.- every insertion, describing some new article each time. Pick specific examples from each different line. Do not speak of the line as a whole. It isn't necessary to say in big letters that you keep a large and complete line, etc. People know this without being told. Pick representative values from your stock. The public will recognize them as being typical. "Be truthful. A reputation for making statements that can be depended onis an advertiser's most valued asset. Too much adver tising misrepresents. Let a merchant tell the whole truth about his goods and people will soon believe all that he says. They will place confidence in him. If an article is marked low because it is dam aged or slow to sell, say so. If you make a price cut, give the actual reason. Better to undervalue than to exaggerate. Never let the patron have a chance to be disappointed when he sees the goods. "Be rief. Put into advertising everything that will help to sell goods. vou can be brief without omitting necessary information. Put aside trite, commonplace phrases." Use short words, short sen tences, short paragraphs. Make sure that all you say will be rightly understood. Make certain that descriptions and prices are correct. Aim at the least intelligent reader. Strive to put the principal facts in the simplest way. That is good ad. writing. "Be kind to competitors and patrons alike. Say nothing to hurt any one's feelings. You can tell the merits of your own goods with out speaking disparagingly of competitors. Be good natured and optimistic. Give the impression of prosperity even though you feel 'blue.' Have confidence in your business. If you do not think well of it yourself, nobody else will."

Dawson. Ga.. Nov. 29. H. C. Gil christ, of Detroit, superintendent of the telephone exchange here, was cruelly whipped by a number of citi zens on account of an attempt by him to force girls employed in the tele phone exchange to accept a negro por ter as escort. Gilchrist's offense was committed on Satu.-day night One of the girls was detained rather late and was afraid to go home alone. Gilchrist told the girl the negro could escort her. She re fused indignantly and told her com panions. All the girls in the exchange struck and Gilchrist resigned, stating that the people of Dawson were too sensitive about the negro question. Meanwhile a mob was gathering, and when Gilchrist tried to escape in an automobile his car was halted and he was taken out and whipped till blood flowed. He also was forced to sign an abject apology to the telephone girls and then allowed to go. His Correction.

Jinks Who was it said he'd rather make the songs than the lews of the country ? Blnks I don't know; but I'd rathe make the laws for the people wbe make the songs nowadays. Is Fashion Cavalier The Knight of the Golden Helmet rode briskly down the lane. His sword made a pleasant clanking In the rusty scabbard, which it was never Intended to fit; his eyes sparkled; his plumes waved bravely In the breete. The general get-up of the gentleman of the aureate headpiece was a trifle startling. Upon Ills head was a basket. the handle beneath his chin and Its bottom (or rather top In Its present position) decorated with the tail-feath ers of nn Incautious rooster; about bis waist was a red sash stuck full of wooden dirks; from the left side of this sash half hung, halt dragged the naval sword In the old cavalry scab bard. A rake handle answered the purpose of a lance and bore as. Its pennon a fluttering, three-cornered piece of red - flannel; upon the knight's fat. chubby legs were fastened pieces of tine, evi dently Intended for greaves. The .steed he bestrode was a crooked pieed - of apple limb, with a bit of twine about one end of It for reins. It Is probably quite as needless to elte that, now the literature had been absorbed, he thirsted for deeds of valor. Hence the ride down the lane, and -ence the whoope. But very unfor tunately It seemed to be an off day for opportunities. He had lust splashed throuch the aiuddy "pool where Hhe cattle drarV each evening, and was cantering blithely past the btrches beyond, when -he saw a young man approaching a young man in flannels, very tall and straight, pleasant faced, too. although just now the forehead was wrinkled In a frown and the firm Jaw was set In determination. The young man was puffing vigorously at the briar pipe between his teeth, sending out great blue clouds of smoke In his wake. The Knight of the Golden Helmet reined In his steed and accosted the man before him with a familiar: "Hey. Charlie!" Then, suddenly remembering the dignity of his position, he squared his small shoulders ana threw up his chin. "What ho. Charles!" he corrected his first saluation. "Hold a bit I wouldst hare converso with thee." The young man eeemed aware for the first time of the other's presence. "Hello, Billy." snld be. abstractedly glancing at the queer figure before him. "What's up now?" "I am the Knight of the Golden Hel met," was the grave response. "You don't say. Where are you bound?" "Where is thy lady?" the knight de mended. "My lady? You mean your Aunt Margaret?" The knight nodded. uown me tane a on, Dy tne wal nut trees. Know the piace, aon't you?" "8ure." was the unknlghtly reply. He drew a bit nearer; one hand resiea upon toe mil or me swora. "Why are you here, varlet?" he de manded. "Why haat thou deserted thy lady?" "Huh!" said the man In flannels. Then he burst Into laughter, but there was a certain grating uolse In it "Well, Billy Mr. Golden Helmet, I mean I'm here because she sent me. Couldn't seem to endure my society are you cn? And I hardly think you're correct In calling her my lady. She Just told me mighty plainly that the wasn't" "Back you go, craven!" he declared, flatly. "Huq? Wbatl" said the man in the flannels. "Back you go! I tide to the succor ef ladies In distress." "Bully for you, old chap!" the other replied. "I think you'd better go alone, though." "Never!" bawled the knight "Turn around!" "See here," the young man began Irritably, as he took a step forward; but at that moment they both heard quick steps down the lane. Around the bend came the lady under discussion. She started violently at the sight of them. Her face was flush ed and her eyes wer suspicious! red. "I've got him," shouted tbo finlgbt Joyously; "he's In my power. He was deserting you, but I held him up. Ill see he begs your pardon, if you ssy so." The young woman d.-ew herself up. Her face was scarlet now. "Billy, what are you doing? What Is the meaning of this foolishness?" she demanded. "Come on, you! Apologise!" said the youth sulkily, prodding the Imma culate white trousers with the point of his sword. "Margaret." he cried, "he's right I should apologize, that's a fact I'm a pig-headed duffer. The quarrel is my lault all mine." "Chen came a few low words; a lit tle happy laugh from the girl, and then two of them strolled down the lane together, utterly oblivious to the ridiculous figure which stood silently watching them until they disappeared round the bend. The Knfght of the Golden Helmet remained thus for some moments, lost in thought Then he tamed about and went slowly up the lane. "Gee!" be muttered, "wouldn't that cook yer? This ain't the way they done !t In the .book." He was still lost In his own mus- the grazing cattle and the hnddled heep. BARRY PRESTON. A Punctual Bird.
