LEITKK'S JUNES .STILL m 'RMXfl. .Ill .VuuresIdentN Forbidden lo Loiter Alioot the Town. Dutiuoin, 111., Dec. 23.—Despite the heroic efforts of the several hundred men who have been fighting flames In Joseph IjCiter's colliery at Zelgler, the fires still exist, though to what extent cannot be determined. It is next rfo lmi»osslble to ascertain any information as to the gravity of the situation at Zelgler. as orders have been issued forbidding any nonresidents from loitering about the town.

ABOm ADVERTISING—NO. 7 The Cannon That Modernized Japan By Herbert Eaufmaii« Business is no longer a man to man contact, in which the. merchant and the patron establish a personal bond, any more than battle is a hand-to-hand grapple, where bone and muscle and sinew decide the outcome. Trade as well as war has changed in its aspect— both are now fought at long range. Just as a present day army of heroes would ; have no opportunity to display the individual valor of its members, just so a merchant who counts upon his personal acquaintanceship for success is a relic of the past— a business dodo. Japan changed her policy of exclusion to foreigners after a fleet of warships battered down the Satsuma fortifications. The Samurai, who had hitherto considered their blades and bows gdod enough, discovered that one cannon was mightier than all the swords in creation // they could not get near enough to use them, Japan profited by the lesson. She did not wait until/wr^A^r ramparts were battered to pieces, but was satisfied with her one experience and proceeded to modernize her metfibds. The merchant who doesn't advertise is jiroUy much in the same position as that in which Jajinn stood when her eyes were opened to the fact that times had changed. The long range publicity ui a competitor will as surely destroy your business as tlie cannon of the foreigners crumbled the walls <.>t" Satsuma. Unless you^take the lesson to heart, unless y.m realize the importance of advertising, not only as ib.e means of extending your business but for dcjcndiut^ it as well, you must be prepared to face the consequences of a folly as great as that of a duelist who expects to survive in a contest in which his adversary hWB a sword twice the length of his own. Don't think that it's too late to begin because there are so many stores which have had the ad van tuge of years of cumulative advertising. The city is growing. It will grow even more next year. It nceclr; increased trading facilities just as it's himgry for new neighborhoods. But it will never again support neigjiborhood'stores. Newspaper advertising has eliminated the strength of being locally prominent, and five cent street car fares have cut out the advantage of being "aroutid the comer." A store five miles away can reach out through the columns of the daily newspaper and draw your next door neighbor to its aisles, while you sit^by and see the people ou yoiir own block enticed away without your being able to retaliate or suj^ly new customers to take their place. It is not a question of youf abiEty to^sfand tJie cost of advertising but of being able to survive without it. The thing you have to consider is not extension of your business but holdmg what you al- ready have. Advertising is an investment, the cost of which is in the same proportion to its returns as seeds are to ' the harvest. And it is just as preposterous for you to consider publicity as an expense as it would be for a farmer to hesitate over purchasing a fertiliser if ^he discovered that he could profitably increase his crops by employing it.
