gentlemen have come to learn npon
what basis Mr. Blaine is willing to
open negotiations looking to trade re
ciprocity between this couutry and
Canada; and Sir Julian, as her Majt-s-tyY
representative, keens in hearing rill
the time, lest the talk should shift
from reciprocity to annexation. if
Mr. Blaine's ideas are not too much for
the Canadians, it is expected that Sir
Charles Tupper will go from here di
rect to London for the purpose cf en
deavoring to persuade "the British gov
ernment to appoint plenipotentiaries
to negotiate with this government.

Children Cry, for
How to Advertise.
' i .
A iFEW TERTINENT SUGGESTIONS TQ BUsI-
; ,Nrss MEN, .
The rollowing article taken from the
Charleston, South Carolina, World, on
the subject of newspaper advertising, and
bow to do it, is commended to the con?
sideratiou of business men :
The question of method in advertising
Is one having infinite range. The matter
is one of the yery Srst importance, and
cannot be too carefully studied. One
thing about it thatmny be set down as
true that every mau's advertising, in its
language ard style, should be character-istic-characteriatic
cf the man, charac
teristic of his stock, characteristic of his
commercial position, for every man has
his pecularities ot development. When
ne speaks we know it is he though we
may not be looking at him, and his ad-
vertisement snouiu represent mm liKe
his voi.-e. lie s ould put his experience,
his industry, into his advertising. It is
astonishing to see how mei chauts who are
tireless in their industry at the store,
v-arly and late eaer cioe buyers, after
basinesj quick to embrace opportunities
for enlargement of lines and extension of
trade it is surprising to see how such
business men continue their advertising
in the language ot the rut, ar:d announce
iu the same words and same words and
same manner that oi l duty for them
years ago that they are still to be found
At the same old, stand, with a choice
stock of dry goods, notions, etc., etc.
There is another and better way to r
If a merchant has any snap and energy
in himself, let him show it in his adver
.idwg. If he has any bargains in his
store, let him say so. If he has connections
which enable him to sell better goods, or
the same goods at lower prices, than any
one else, let him say that ; say it plainly,
strongly and in a way that will carry
conviction of truthfulness; aifd on the
simc principle that leads him to treat
visitors to his store so they w ill call again,
let him write his advertisement so that
his next advertisement will be looked for.
If you get a person's attention tmce try
to hold it. The whole thing is summed
up in this: One should study advertis
ing as he does every other department of
his business. Advertising is a science,
simple it is true, as to its main elements,
but requiring more thought and system
than many of our business men have been
atcutomed to give it.
