Lawrence County
Little Ad. Talks
We have a letter from M.
R. D. OwingB, advertising
manager of the Internation
al Harvester Company of
America, placing an order
for advertising:, in which
he saya "We believe thor
oughly that the country
weekly is one of best medi
ums for reaching the farm
er.'' The question which
this hard headed, keen-vis
ioned man of business looks
most closely into, however,
is as to whether any paper
selected does reach the
farmer. By an investigation
of the circulation of The
Democrat, he has learned
from sources entirely uncon
nected with this office, that
it does reach the buying
farmers of Lawrence County
He does not select this paper
because its rates are lowest,
for they are not, but because
its circulation, in both quan
tity and quality, gives him
the best value for his money.
We invite your inspection of
our circulation. We guar
antee to reach the most
readers, at the lowest cost.
We ask you to investigate
and compare, for yourself.
The postal records, the ex
press record, the records of
the Westcii) Newspaper Un
ion from whom we get our
weekly shipment of papers,
ill all prove this. t Mr.
Lawrenceburg Merchant,
just use the satn good sense
in spending your advertising
appropriation that the In
ternational Harvester Co. of
America uses. This method
of doing business bas made
them rich. It won't hurt
you. If this great corpora- x
tiou had done business only X
with those whose politics o
suited it, and bought where X
it could buy cheapest, re- v
gardless of value, it never q
would have been a great X

The entertainment entitled ' Sto

on Tuesday evening of last week,
was one which deserves the highest
praise, of both children and man

in song and in costume ideas of
storyland were tieanlifnlly pnr
trayed and each little tot did their
part with such grace and ease that
the audience was quite captivated,
An occasion of much enjoyment
occurred at the home of R. W.
Lantz, near town, Thursday night
of last week, when a company of
fon loving young people went
there in a crowd for the purpose
of surprising the eldest son. Loyd,
it being his twentieth birthday.
It was truly a surprise. They all
'quietly entered the room, Loyd
being in an adjoining room was
unaware of their presence, until
the connecting ooor was tnrown

him. The evening was spent in
