“One Man's Word is as good as Another's"

Yes that may be, but is not a man's word backed by

hard dollars better than a mere statement ?

Is not the circulation statement of

Farm, Stock @ Home,

backed by One Hundred Round Hard Dollars, more
likely to be true than a circulation claim made by merely
putting down figures ?

As a business proposition, should not the paper of
known circulation have preference over those of claimed
circulation ?

The man who believes in steady advertising and distributes his appropriation judiciously throughout the year will meet with greater returns than the chap who spends he same amount in two or three big plunges and then lies back to regain his wind. This is no mere theory.:--Printers' Ink.



When one task is finished, jump into another. Don't hesitate. Don't falter. Don't Don't wait Keep going. Don't dawdle in the hope that inspiration will strike you. Inspiration is more likely to strike a busy man than an idle one.--System.

The Agnew bill in the New York Assembly has been referred to the codes committee. It forbids the unauthorized taking, copying or use of lists of customers or subscribers.

The bill is largely in the interest of firms in the mail-order business and of publishers of mail-order papers.

Their lists are among their most valued assets.

It has happened that clerks seeking new jobs have copied or carried off valuable lists for which they could always find buyers among competitors of their late employers.

Horace Dumars, advertising manager of the Ladies' World, of New York, said to a porter of The Fourth Estate:

“The stealing of lists of subscribers is to my thinking an especially mean kind of pilfering, because it involves a breach of trust. A thief who breaks into a safe and takes a publisher's cash does less harm than one who steals mail-lists.

"In this office we have a card for every subscriber, and we keep it six months after the subscription has expired. We assume that if the subscriber has a complaint to make, we shall hear from her in less than half a year after her paper has been stopped.

"At the end of the six months we tear up the cards. We never sell them.”

It has been suggested that the receiver of a stolen mailing list is as bad as the thief and should be punished as severely. He must know that he is getting stolen property, for nobody buys such a list unless he knows where it comes from.

The first question asked is, "Where did you get these names?" It must be answered fully before the sale can be made.

Governor Higgins, of New York, has signed the Wainwright bill protecting the United States flag from desecration, mutilation or improper use.

The office of the trade paper advertising is, or should be, to lead the man up to the trough, and it is up to your salesman or your sales department to make that man feel thirsty and drink thereof. Your advertisement should be so worded and so placed as to appeal to the man that you desire to reach.

No expense should be spared in order to give your advertisement sufficient display and attract sufficient attention. Originality in design is always de. sirable. The busier you are, the more should you advertise, then when a dull season comes you will hold on where others fall.--E. H. Defebaugh in Rock Products.

Most manufacturers and business men think of the country as the source of production, and of the city as the place to make sales.

The various cities are the centers of distribution for all kinds of goods, and in these cities are used a large percentage of the more
