The Northwestern Agriculturist, of Minneapolis, Minn., has been changed from a semi-monthly to a weekly publication. There will be no change made in the subscription price, nor in the advertising rates, for the present. The Northwestern Agriculturist has the distinction of being the only weekly agricultural paper in Minnesota, and by keeping the subscription price at the old semi-monthly rate, a large increase of circulation is expected. Mr. P. V. Collins, the president and general manager of the Agriculturist Company, explains that the change has been under consideration for some time, but was hurried beyond his expectations by the insistent demands of subscribers and advertising patrons.

an agricultural publication with over 40,000 subscribers, most of which are located in one of the best states in the Union, and every one a farmer, should be a "rattling good proposition at 20 cents per line. The conservative advertiser should not shy at a good thing like this, should he? “Mebbe" I am wrong, but it don't listen like it. Of course it depends a lot in who is behind the paper. If he is "swelled" and thinks he's doing YOU a favor by carrying your business, then you are "hitched up." wrong: We haven't got that kind of a push behind our paper.

The National Farmer and Stock Grower

People, as a rule, prefer to trade where they are acquainted. The merchant who advertises extensively and persistently becomes known by repute all over the country, His name is familiar to everybody and people who have never seen him feel that they know him. Strangers who are looking for a place where they may do their buying are far more likely to enter the store that advertises than one where they have never been invited to call. And when they enter a store that has become familiar to them through advertising they experience a very comforting sense of being acquainted-a sensation that would not be possible in a store that does not advertise.The Retailer and Advertiser.

The direct command in advertising must be understood and used only as a stimulant. If a man suspects that you are forcing him to buy your products he becomes prejudiced against your plans and likewise against your goods. The command too! domineering becomes obnoxious and gives the reader the idea that you are trying to make up in energy what you lack in argument. Its true aim is, first, to start action and, second, to aid the memory. It should never replace the presentation of forcible facts, for it is the stimulus and not the food of the advertisement.-Nahin's Magazine.
