Is it running smoothly, without a hitch, or does it miss frequently? If it is "missing" frequently, you had better look it over or you will soon have a dead business on your hands. If your business is capitalized at a certain amount you will naturally expect a fair proportion of profits, or, in engine parlance, if you have a sixty horsepower capital you will expect a thirty horse-power profit, at least. If it falls below that mark then it is missing a cylinder or two and requires attention. Ten chances to one it needs lubrication. As an engine requires oil, so business requires lubricating, and the best lubri cation is ADVERTISING. It works into the stiffly-running parts and sets the engine of business running freely again. Again, as in the selection of engine oil, one must te careful in selecting the medium of advertising. There are many kinds but the one surest way, and the one that will give pleasing re sults is through the medium of a newspaper that reaches the cream of the buying public, through the mails.
