An Advertising Clincher In talking recently with a man who has made a big success as an advertising sales man, the question was asked him, "What has been the* most effective argument you have, used to induce merchants to adver tise?" "I ask them," the salesman repliedi "what proportion of the population in the territory they serve has come into their store within the past three months. ''Very few of ihem in reply to ibis ques tion, claim that any large proportion of the population has corn? into the store. A few may say they have had 10'per cent, of thc people. Many would admit that not over i per cent of the people had been in their store during that period. In many c-ises the proportion would be away below i per cent. "Then I say, 'How are all the rest of the people going to have any idea about thc merits of the stock you carry? They may go by your place of business twice a day, but they know nothing about what you are do ing. You will never get trade unless you ? seek after their business ai d tell them what you have got.* "To do that," the salesman continued, "I tell them there are just three things that can be done. They can send a salesman around . from door to door tovell them about the goods. They can distribute handbills or cir cular letters. Or they can advertise in the newspapers. "Newspaper advertising would not cost a tw entieth of the cost of personal solicitation. It is move effective, because it (eta. attenttoe where- a solicitor would be turned away. And a newspaper advertisement is read where a handbill goes to the waste basket. If you don't care to adopt one of these methods, I tell them, the great mas? of the people wilt continue to pass you by without knowing about your goods or ever giving you any business."-Exchange.
