JUDICIOUS ADVERTISING, TO BE DEDICATED SUNDAY ABLE SPEAKERS WILL BE HERE, The Presbyterians Will Hold Dedication Services All Day Commencing at 1O:3O. Lars Sorenson is buying out the Stock meat market at Algona and will run it himself. Lars is a good butcher and ought to succeed. Wm. Cooper of Portland had his sale yesterday, and they leave in a few days for the southwest. Their removal takes away one of the pioneers of the county and a good family. Thos. Hanna has bought the corner lot across the street south from Wm. Stockwell and will build as soon in the spring as possible, LuVerne News. L. D. Loyell is again numbered with our business men. Last Friday he pur- Nearly all kinds of advertising pays some, but to determine which of the various kinds of advertising^ the most judicious is indeed a knotty problem. A man who tries to do business without advertising is said lobe like one who winks at his girl in the dark. The girl never dreamed that he was really winking. Wo cannot afford to advertise in the dark, it is too expensive. The most successful business men have been extensive ad vertisore. For this reason the public has learned to avoid the man who fails to advertise. Newspapers are generally conceived to be the most effectual means of advertising, but it is possible even in a newspaper to use up a groat amount of space and printer's ink without any adequate results. Do not rely entirely upon big type which the public can hardly get around without reading nor the amount of space you occupy. The results of advertising! do not always follow closely upon the heels of an advertisement. Business is frequently brought to us directly through an advertisement which appeared years ago. This is one of the reasons why it is so hard to define judicious advertising. We must therefore advertise for the future as well as for the present. What you most need is distinction, and the greatest field for distinction now open to advertisers is in simply telling the truth without ex- ageration, and in living up to your advertisement. This alone will distinguish you from nearly all advertisers and the results will be abundant and lasting. In our own advertising we have never lost sight of this fact. Yet it is surprising how slow the race has been in learning this simple truth. Look at the advertisements of today. What must the men who wrote them think their readers to be. Lying is bad. Lying is very bad. Everyone knows this by experience. The man who will lie when he can make nothing by it does wrong says Mark Twain. Another thing—do not keep in the old rut of constantly harping on big stock and low prices. It is generally understood that you buy all the stock you can get trusted for and that you do not make much profit, otherwise you would be rich. Do not be discouraged. Advertise often. Keep steadily at it. Be particular to pay the printer if you do not pay anyone else. Do not expect great results the following day after your advertisement appears. It is a good thing in advertising to arouse curiosity. Occasionally write an ad. like this one. You may thing it will not be noticed. You are mistaken. Everybody will read it through in spite of themselves. "You are doing it now." All of this has been written simply to remind you that J. A. Hamilton & Co. are anxious to do business. That they can sell goods as cheap as anyone and still make a good profit for themselves. That's all. The dedication of the new Presbyterian church will occur Sunday. The other protestant churches of the city will join in the services of the day, both morning and evening, and their pastors have prominent parts in the program. Before the dedication prop- per, a thanksgiving service will be held Saturday afternoon at, 3 o'clock led by Rev. J. B.
