With a wonderful smile on his lips, In wh'ch mortlQcntlon, pity and surprise wero blended, he politely offered her Ills arm and led hor back to tho ballroom. As they entered It they almost ran Into Cecil Brlarley. He was about to walk past them when Sibyl "Oh. Cecil, hero you are! ' Yoti'rojust In time." . Denabam yielded her up with his customary mnllu. They w*ere about to Join the dancers when It was announced that th« my*tic midnight moment had arrived, and those who cared to do eo were to go to tho open windows and on to tho doorsteps and tho balconloa to listen and wait for the solemn peal that was to rnnrk the annual recommencement Briartey got a wrap to throw over his cousin's fihouldero. and then they went to tho further corner of tb« long balcony. "Are you thinking of the now yearT" nskod Cecil. ^ "No: I was thinking of Tantalus," "I hbpe you pity him." "I don't think I do.' 1 responded bis cousin noftly. feeling glad th«t the shadows hid her blushing cheek.

He may be located on a cross road, or in an out of the way place. Me most bring* by his advertising* and lie can tcet them no other way tl^e buyers for his rcoods to his farm. The locaj business man on the other hand can sit- down and wait for some other merchant to pull folks to {own and in some, way g"ot along without much advertising". It can be done. The Gazette does not hesitate to say so. But that kind of a store never grows big. That kind of a store makes a living, but it is not the house that is renting* larger quarters and putting- in new lines - in fact making- big* money and branching out. into new profitable lines. That kind of a store wipes ten townships off the map so far as its own pulling power is concerned. It wipes the possibility of being* the one store in Sterling in its line that folks patronize because they read its announcements In The Daily Gazette, , And these ten townships are right at homey surrounding* Sterling and Rock Falls, the real[trading 1 territory for the stores in the Twin Cities. If every store in the Twin Cities would use The Gazette to make some inducement for the folks in these nearby ten townships'to come to Sterling or Rock Falls to trade they would draw tens of thousands of dollars worth of trade that never reaches the Twin Cities. The farmers in these ten townships know what pays them. Other farmers have advertised their sales thor->. oughly in The Daily Gazette and have had big sales. They are taking no chances of wiping ten of the richest townships in Whiteside and Lee county off the map when they have a sale. I If the business men of the two cities as a whole will <cfecide to do the same thing next year the Volume of t)nde for the two towns will grow by leaps and bounds. There are many ways of reaching the public but' the one way that reaches the most people at the least cost is The Daily Gazette way—that much can be demonstrated over and over again. Any house that has any kind of a proposition presented to it for any kind of advertising will be saving money for themselves by permitting The Daily Gazette what it can do before closing a deal. Certainly no man who gives any attention to advertising can afford to wipe ten of the richest townships off the map, which is what they do when they fail to ad. vertise in The Daily Gazette.
