! Some of our mercantile friends as
sert that advertising doesn’t pay.
Well, if that is so there are a lot of
fools in this country that spend a lot
of money in advertising. Strange that
some of the heaviest and most persist

non-paying practice. To show that
advertising does pay it is only neces
sary to stop and think a moment of
the men you know who are doing the
business of the county, and in nearly
every case you’ll find them heavy ad
vertisers. The merchant that sits in
bis store all day long with |an old
stock waiting for trade to come to

lost in the general shuffle; Mark
these words.—Douglas (Ga.) Breeze.
