People no long-; er follow the ancient custom of going to market to purchase the' few necessary articles that were required by the family, and which the merchant may have had exposed upon his shelves or; tucked away under the counter or behind it in tiers of drawers that were never opened unless the customer inquired for the goods that were thus hidden away. Today, the successful merchant uses the columns of the newspapers to advertise his wares. He not only tells what he i has, but illustrates his advertising space with pictures of the! various articles, either singly or artistically grouped. He gives prices and faithfully describes each article, so that the reader may thus* obtain a very clear understanding of what is offered for sale, its price and, if it is a credit house, the terms and con ditions of sale. It is this variety of advertising that has created a demand for thousands of articles that would not have sold otherwise than by advertising. Advertising creates a demand for everything that necessity or inventive genius has or will produce. Advertis ing calls attention to the goods, causes people to think and to want the things they see and read of. Advertising has created a demand that never before existed, and the demand has set in motion thousands of wheels, given; employment to thousands of workers and provided them with the means to purchase the things that were advertised. Thus, the chain that was started with one link, has grown and lengthened i until it includes an almost endless number of workers. Advertising is the manspring of business. It is the creator of business and the source of a nation’s prosperity. Advertising' tells the tourist where to go, how to go and how to get the bene fit of the money he has to spend on his vacation. Advertising: builds mills, railroads, great industries, and in fact, everything that enters into the life and prosperity of a nation. It keeps the trains moving, the ships sailing, the airplanes flying, and gives employment to millions of people who would otherwise find existence a problem. Read the advertisements. They are of vit al importance and may save many dollars in the expenditure necessary to every household. BANNER NUMBER The Mid-Winter Resource edition of the Arizona Republican was a hummer, one hundred and forty pages of news and adver tising matter—a record of which any metropolitan daily might veil be proud. The Republican is miles ahead of all other daily newspapers published in Arizona and compares favorably with the big dailies of Los Angeles, Denver and San Francisco. The veteran editor, Billy Spear, directing head of the news and edi torial department, has made thousands of friends for the Re publican with his strong editorials, and clean news items. This edition of the Republican is the best advertisement that can be given the state of Arizona, and every citizen who has ! the interest of the state at heart, should purchase one or more I copies of this number and mail to some acquaintance in another I state. It might well be termed a “booster edition,” for it is the; best boost ever given the Baby State. May the Republican con tinue the good work it is doing for Arizona and the 300,000 in habitants thereof. PITY THE POOR EDITOR A lawyer charges a man $lO for ten minutes’ conversation— the man insists on paying it. A doctor charges $1 for a pre scription and the patient says, “Oh, pshaw—is that enough?” An undertaker conducts a funeral and charges SIOO and he is just perfectly lovely with everybody inside and outside the family. A man buys a gold brick and apologizes for not having bitten soon er. An editor walks a mile in the hot sun to get the facts of a sudden death or wedding or social function and spends three hours in writing it up and tells lies and praises people till he hates himself. Then if he makes an insignificant omission or er ror or charges 5 cents straight for three extra papers he is a stingy cuss who never gets anything right and charges four times the price of city papers twice as large. In short he is a confounded most-any-old-thing and ought to be run out of town. Talk about the ice man! How would you like to run a newspa per.—Exchange. GET A RECEIPT An Oklahoma editor tells of an old Indian that came into his office to pay for his paper. The editor took the money, then the Indian wanted a receipt. The editor tried to talk him out of it. Mr. Indian insisted on getting the receipt. After making it the editor wanted to know why he was so persistent about wanting a receipt. The Indian said: “Me die sometime. Go to big gate and St. Peter ask if Ibe good Indian. I say yes. He say did you pay your debts? I say yes. He say did you pay editor for paper? I say yes. He say, where is receipt ? I no have it. I have to run all over hell to find you to get receipt."—Cowden (Illinois) Re flector. ' • Q- □' LOCAL NEWS □ □ 1 Relief Club Notes. The B. T. W. H.
