The merchants of Athol and Gard ner have each organized themselves into Merchants' associations and much good is looked for from a closer oom munion of interests. Brattleboro should have a similar organization and a movement is now on foot to organize one. At the last meeting of the Athol Merchants' association it was unani mously voted not to advertise in pro grams or to patronize fake advertising schemes of any kind. The Athol Trim script has the following editorial per taining to the subject : "The action of the Athol Merchants' association in voting not to patronize hereafter the various advertising pamphlets gotten up in the interest of churches, lodges, charitable and fraternal societies, the atre programs, etc., is fully in line with the course adopted by merchants in manv other towDS. Newspaper ad vertising is universally preferred, and the value of this program and circular advertising is at least questionable. That Athol merchants have continued so long to favor these schemes is due not so much to a connaence in tueir utility as to a natural desire to give a little quid pro quo for trade received from those connected with and inter ested in the churches and societies get ting up the programs.
