OUR SUMMER UNDERWEAR IS VERY ATTRACTIVE TO ALL PEOPLE WHO WANT TO BE MADE COMFORTABLE. STRAW HATS Negligee Shirts HATTES 1KP FUBKISH1B Advertise" Put far A Definite Thine uud .Should fiet What They 1'ar For. Advertising is purely a matter of business, No advertiser should be willing' to pay the same for poods a hall yard wide that he pays for tt« same a yard wide. Ho should not be willing to pay the same for space in a paper having 500 circulation that he pays for 1500 circulation. He should not expect to buy cheap advertising and pet high priced results. Business men put their goods and their rent and their clork hire on a strict business basis, but when U comes to advertising they seem to lose their judgment, and very often pay a big price for cheap and worth, lees advertising and then complain that the valuable advertising mediums do not meet such competition. An exchange calls attention to this. It Bays: Tho following is from the Richmond Item, and is as applicable in Lafayette as in Richmond. It is astonishing, when you think of it, the number of men, alert, wideawake business men in all ordinary transactions, who when it comes to advertising are utterly careless, swallow any kind of a story that is told them with childlike crod- uality, and can not be Induced to inform themselves as to what a newspaper is really giving them, even when invited, and the way opened. There is no more reason for weighing sugar or cofife, or weighing or measuring a load of corn or wheat when buying it, than ascertaining just how much subscription list you are getting the benefit of, just how many people the paper Is going to put your adver* tlsement before, when buying advertising space. Nor is there any more reason in paying the same price for the ea me space to newspapers indiscriminately, than there would be in buying 200 pound barrels and 300 pound barrels of sugar at the same price, and expecting to pay the 200 pound barrel man as much per barrel aa though his barrels contained 300 pounds, or complaining at the higher price when the seller of the 800 pound barrels asks more per barrel than you can buy the 200 pound barrels for. We sometimes think, when considering this subject, that there is no class of people in the world so lacking in business common sense as the average business man. If he should find his bolts of dry goods running 25 per cent, short, or his barrels of molasses only containing thirty gallons, ho would promptly discover il, and claim shortage; but tho newspaper man is allowed to deliver advertising 5S per cent, short count, and nothing is ever said about it. Tho Item says: "Merchants should demand proof of circulation f r0 m newspapers seeking their patronage. The whole value of their advertising is based on the amount of service to be rendered; and the only way to estimate that service is by knowing the circulation within the fleld sought to bo covered. No honorable publisher can take offense If this important evidence is Insisted upon. Merchants, if they are not cheated, pay for the number of readers—for a certain quantity of circulation—just as their cusiomers pay for a certain quantity of dress goods; and it Is precisely as dishonest to give short measure in circulation as short measure In silk. And It la not only uijust to themselves, but also unjust to hcnast newspapers- for advertisers to permit wind to offset circulation in considering the relative worth of newspaper advertis'ng. The Item has frequently suffered in this way at the handa of well meaning but mislead merchants who ha vein. s'sted that our rates were too high, without knowing the one essential fact on which a fair judgment could bo formed—the actual circulation of Us competitors. The Item's motto is to tell the truth, and this holds good In all departments of tte paper. m»d UOK Soar*. A mad dog created ^qulte a sensa- .tlon near the JobnstOH House yester. day afternoen. One of the "8 Bells" troupe owned a petskyeterrlor pup to which h«5 wan much attached. While sitting in front of the Johnston House holding tho dog on his lap the little animal began barking furiously and frothing at the mouth and showing other unmistakable signs of the rabies. The crowd dispersed at onoe but the owner caught the dog by the neck and carried him down the river where be held him in the water until ho he wa» drowned. During the early part of the afternoon the dog ecoompanied hli master in a stroll through the woods south of the city and it is supposed that he ate some poisonous horb that caused hydrophobia.
