The merchant who says that every

that he doesn't have to advertise, can
be (ouud in Louisburg, and in every
other community in this ccuntry
This merchant also says that cus'o.
meTs come to him when in need of
Moods, so why should he waste his
money in advertising? An answer to
that question has been made by a
newspaper whose advertising man no
doubt stumbled into places of busi
ness where the owner possessed that
frame of mind.
This newspaper answered the ques
tion "Why Should I Advertise?" as
"Of course, the newspaper man
might say in rebuttal, 'everyone in
this community knows what^ happens
here, so what's the use of reporting
.the news; what's the use of printing
"If the community can get along
without a newspaper it ca nget along
without a number ot other things.
I The adults are educated and cSn teach
the children, thus doing away with
the need of schools. The parents, be
ing religious, can train the younger
ones in the creeds, thus'doing away
.with ministers and churches.-People
can loan their money to one another
and thereby eliminate banks. They
can swap their old clothes or leari*
how to make home-spuns. thereby
greatly reducing expenses and actu
ally putting the clothing merchants
out of business.
"All trade is based upon a desire
of/ goods. Necessity is, mostly, but
an augmented desire. Advertising has
the function ot reminding people ot
t'eir requirements, but its greatest
function?a prime factor in all pro.
press and prosperity?Is the creating J
