GOOD ADVERTISING
TUB Toronto Daily Star, which has
the largest Canadian circulation of any
daily newspaper in Canada, recently took
occasion to print an editorial nearly a column long in praise of the work done by
small-town newspapermen in interesting
local mere Ii ants in advertising. The pith
of the article is in the following paragraphs
"Some of the small-town weeklies that
now carry display advertising which vies
with that in the metropolitan dailies, used
to lind, some years ago, that local merchants scarcely believed in advertising
at all.
"The notion that a merchant advertised out of the goodness of his'heart in
order to help the newspaper and ought,!
therefore, to have something to say about
the policy of the paper, used to prevail
widely.
"One hears little of it now, except
from persons who know nothing of the
facts. An advertiser advertises because
it increases his business, and if he stops
his baaineaa decreases."
This hits the mark, says the Trail
News.   Fire full page advertisements on
consecutive pages without an intervening
lone column of news matter, were not published in a recent issue of the Province
through the goodness of heart of the firms
concerned, but because of their desire to
bring the attractiveness of their goods and
prices before the buying public.
What applies in a large city, where
there are several big department stores
and competition is keen, certainly
applies in like measure to the small rural
town, wnere the merchant who does not
advertise thsreby at once plays into the
hands of his competitors who do.
But little of a stock can be shown in
store windows, while well-written and properly displayed advertising seeks out prospective purchasers in their homes and
brings them to the store, no matter whea-
ther it may be on a side street.
The man who advertises what people
want to buy, either because of the uniqueness, quality or price, or because of a combination of all these features, is the man
who will get the trade, while his competitors who regard advertising as an expense
and not as an investment, are groaning
over the dullness of business.

"Many people here eat brown bread, that

people eat nothing else." ���Pretty dry fodder,
we'll say. We'd at least want butter on it, and
an occasional spud on the side.
The request by F. C. Wade, British Columbia's representative in London, that all sections
of northern British Columbia send advertising
matter back to the Empire Exhibition, is a good
one. The Prince Rupert Board uf Trade has
taken it up, and it might not be amiss for our own
