BAGGER BUSINESS BULLETIN
FOR THE CONSERVATION OF LOCAL BUSINESS TO LOCAL
BUSINESS FIRMS PUBLISHED BY
- THE FRANKLIN PRESS, MAY 17
- - -r . .' (C) r ..;... :.. ;::
Is a Business That Isnt Worth Advertising Worth
Occasionally we $ee a man in business actually trying to establish
a business Who says he does not advertise because he would have
to increase his prices if he did.
It is not often we see such a man in business because a man with
such limited business vision seldom remains in business long enough
to be seen. ,
The truth of the matter is that the merchant who does not adver
tise and increase his volume of sales must increase his prices on the
limited amount of stuff he sells and actually charge more than the
merchant who by the use of regular advertising turn3 his goods three
or four times to the other fellow's once. It is simply the old story
of the nimble nickle.
The nationally advertised brands of goods, with few exceptions, are
- the bestand lowest-priced products that we can buy today. -The
big busy store that advertises ' and draws trade for miles around is
always the best and cheapest place to trade, and has always been so.
No one ever Tiears it said of the big fnail-order houses that their
great advertising expenditures in sending out millions of catalogs, and
follow-up literature, including large monthly supplements on gro
ceries, clothing, dry goods, shoes, furniture, hardware, farm imple-
- ments, paints, wall paper, etc., made them charge more for their
But you do hear just the opposite. Ask any farmcrho""buys
rgoodsof amaiUorder-house-why-epatronize teJL
- you that he believes he does a little better in the way of price. If you
ask him why their prices aire lower than the local Stores, he will tell
you that it is bcause of the great amount of business they do through
sending out catalogs nad other advertising matter regularly to every
farm home throughout the country. W
The home newspaper affords the only effective means of counter
acting the trade-pulling influence of these mail-order catalogs in tak
ing business away from your home community.
By the use of regular space in the local paper a merchant can
soon educate the home folks to appreciate the fact that he is doing
- everything he can to serve them to the very best of his ability.
This cannot be done as quickly and successfully in any other manner
than by advertising. ' ,.' , '
Advertising is the economic factor of business. Without it few
buyers would know of the exceptional values offered and the turnover
would be reduced to almost nothing. Merchants would be ccupelled
to increase their prices in order to remain in business, and higher
prices would mean fewer buyers and business failure' to those mer
chants who have not taken the time to study and earn the real
value of persistent advertising.

The life's work of this man in Macon

history of his life will be of interest
to hundreds of friends and acquain

low. ' ,

City, and Mrs. John- V. Tooiner,. of
When Mr. Deal was quite, young,
his parents moved to Fayettcville,
where he attended the -common'

civic life, giving unstintingly of his
time and efforts to the material
progress of the ecommunity. For
several years, he was chairman of

An appreciative .estimate of Ins
character and work is contained in
the following extracts from a letter
written to .his daughter by. t)ie Rev.
Frank Siler, of Lake Junaluska:
"The going of your great, good
father removes from earth to heaven

at Cullowhee, before that body of
teachers and students, he was one of
the truly great : men who ministered
in Western North Carolina at a'timo,
that meant much for her young life.
"As a boy, I sat often under his
preaching at St. John's, on Cartooge
chaye, and the simple, practical gospel
he preached, the beauty and dignity
with which he conducted the services,
( made a lasting impression on mv life.'
"As I came into the intimacies of
his personal life,, as my private tutor
in his study. I revere him,, and would
honor him if I could." t
