This is a day of brains and tlie.v command p premium in every ? walk of life. This is conspicuous - ly true in mercantile affairs. The merchant who would be successful must use bis brains, ' and the use of brains prompts biin ? also to the judicious use of adver tising space in his local Dews ' paper. If he expects his establishment ' to become a permanent fixture in " the town he is equally desirous of leaving with his customers a feel ing of satisfaction and the iuctina I tion to return, Therein lies the secret of bis success, but to accomplish this he must first consider three Salient I points. First, his goods must be of the standard required by the people ol?hi* community. Second, they must be reasonable in price. 'fliird, they must be brought to the attention of the buying public. It is a simple matter tie buy the goods and fix the price, but keep | ing them in the public eye is the . problem. It is the stumbling block upon which the hopes of many merchants are wrecked. The merchant who makes the most conspicuous success is the one who brings his wares to the attention of the public through the medium of well written advertis P ing matter. Whenever you find a merchant who advertises judiciously but persistently in his local paper you will invariably find a successful and growing business, a business founded upon solid principles, and one which commands the respect Ul HID DUUiUJUUIbJ . It is the brains of the merchant piloting him safely through "the in tricate perils of commercial life. Advertising is the product of the brain, and is the greatest of all aids to business success and emi nence. The well written advertisement of seasonable goods will always bring results, for it must be borne ?n mind that the buyer, as well as the seller, is possessed of brafus, and those brains will be utilized to his own advantage. This is essentially an advertising age. and the business men who persistently declines to recognize the requirements of the- public will iu times have no patrons to affront by his indifference to their desires. The people of this community have the ad reading habit. It is as mush a part of their daily life as are the ordinary pursuits of the day. .' p It is simply a matter of brains forging to the front, for while the merchant employs his brains in selling of his goods, the buyer utilizes bis brains in the disburs ing of his funds to his own best advantage. And the advertisement?fresh, and crisp, and to the point?leads the buyer direct to the seller, directs his footsteps to the spot where lie may find that which he seeks without delay and the con sequent loss of time in "looking around." -?

If the cotton plant ers will continue to borrow on their cotton instead of selling it, the price of cotton will continue to rise and then when the Depart ment ^f Agriculture annoutjces after the planting season is over that only one half a crop was planted then the price will no doubt go up to eleven cents a i pound.

Booth Lowery. a noted Br and humorist, in his usual || tful style gave an intensely i sting Lecture before the | it body on last Saturday 11 Altho Mr. Lowery is essentially a humorist, at the same time beneath his humor lies a real | problem, and many an unexpress- I ed thought is conveyed to his audience by his jokes. The un derlying thought in all that li?11 said was the question, "what do | other people think of me!" Hel answered the question by saying > that other people are too busy try ing to make a good appearance be j fore you to think t>f you. In his j discourse he dealt the prevailing 3 womans1 fashions a rather hard 1j blow, but he said further he did U this by reason of his southern < gallantry, repeating the familiar j saying "women first always.1 IlisH entire lecture was full biting m notice, keen wit, and humor, and < was pronounced by all to be by < far the best number on the Col- ' lege Lyceum schedule.?Reported. . Pasbing Tbe Ship Bill. Washington, D.C., Jan. 25,1915. ?The action of the Democrats in the Senate a few days ago, in pledging themselves unammiously to the support of the Bill for the purchase of Ships has elictied the ever whelming approval of the country. Since August 1st, whem more than half of the world became in volved in war, ships bearing an aggregate of five million tons, have been with-drawn from com merce. Our great cotton crop of 1914 which is literally weeping for the opportunity of getting into the European* markets, would be greatly benefited if Uncle Sam po sessed an adequate merchant Ma rine. There is great demand in Europe for our lumber, grain, and other farm products, but not near* , |y enough ships with which to -export them. And so if we had an adequate nufnber of ocean car, rying ships with which to handle the vast manufacturing and agri cultural output of this country business would be flourishing to an unusual degree, iq every state in the Union. The Bill "provides for an issue of thirty million dol lars ($30,000,000) Government Bonds, with which to punchase and. to build a Merchant Marine with which to meet this problem. The Bill Is broad in its provision and the government Can if it wisb ea turn this enterprise over te private individuals after it is once organized if it sees fit to do so. | FIRE INSURANCE NOTARY PUBLIC WALTER L?
