Decs Advertising Pay?
The other day a local merchant
elevated bis chin, squared his
shoulders, assumed a belligerent
attitude, and defiantly told us
that "advertising doesn't pay."
He is still alive, but let ua con
sider a minute:
A London baronet who manu
factures pills has sold a part of
his real estate for the tidy sum
of $90,000,000. He made it out
of the profitsof his business, and
he built h.tt business up by ad
vertising, often spending as high
as half a million dollars a year in
John Wanamaker, the best
known and most successful mer
chant in this country, made his
millions by advertising, and said
The great department stores
of the country are kept alive by
advertising, and are coining
money by more advertising.
You never hear ef a large mer
cantile house in this country that
does aot advertise, and advertise
If a politician wants to make
himself known to the dear peo
ple he uses the most effective
rfeans newspaper publicity.
That Is advertising.
If a new son arrives at your
house you are keen to havo it
"put In the paper," where your
friends will see it, thereby ad
vertising the fact that you are
walking oh eggs.
If the editor called you a thiof
in a two line item and stuck it n
way in the most obscure corner
of the paper, would you pass it
by in the belief that it "would
never be noticed?"
NEVER! You would consider
yourself defamed before the en
tire community, and would paw

up the earth in your bellowings.
You would be only too quick to
concede that every line in the
paper is read.
Yes, advertising certainly pays.
There is tio ad so small, or in
significant, but what some one
is waiting for it.
There are plenty of people who
want what you have to sell, but
they are weary of looking
through a haystack for a needle.
They prefer to find it in an ad
vertisement. And they will look in the local
paper for the ad.
They will find someone's but
will it be yours? Exchange.
One Of The Results
Of Ex-bandit Display.
One of the results of the Al
Jennings pictures is noticed in
Lawton by the youngsters boys
and girls playing "train rob
bing." There is no moral lesson
instilled in the minds of the
young by Al Jennings' pictures
nor by his pretended reforma
tion. All that the mind of the
young retain is the glamor of the
deeds of deviltry and lawlessnes.
As has repeatedly been said,
Al Jennings as a movie picture
hero and a maudlin sentiment of
political worship, will do greater
injury to the youth of the land
than his actual deeds of lawless
ness, because they wero not so
spectacular. In other words he
was more of a "four-flusher"
than anything else, and there is
no genuine reformation in him
or he would be willing to play a
modest part in life und attemnt
to mitigate his offense against
law, decency and upright living
by letting the people forget his
misdeeds instead of flauntine
them in the fnce3 of the young,
where the injury will be Incal
culable. Lawton Constitution.
Some Deonle seem to think
that things are very quiet with
the candidates now. But we
would judge not. They are pro
bably very busy figuring up to
Bee how many liars there are in
Comanche county and the State
Lawton'B celebration seomB to
be coming just at the right time.
Several of the candidates are
probably needing something to
cheer them up.
