Courier News Vftnt Adj Pay.. " Alice: Come home. All FORGIVEN Few advertisements in your newspaper start that way. Yet most ol them are just as personal, and almost as promising. Manufacturers and merchants must know "your needs and wants, or go out of business. They must know, for instance, that about the first of next month you'll be very much interested in a new hat, or a new lamp, or new towels. They must foresee your wishes—and have what you'll want when you want it. And they do—constantly striving to suit, at the lowest possible prices. Then telling you in advertising of the gift? they have brought from the far corners of the earth, to please Your Royal Highness. Head the advertisements in this paper. They are addressed to you- personally. They bring you news of better things to have and easier ways to live. Intimate news, of immediate interest.
