Did You Ever Observe It?
Give a man a 10-cent cigar and
he will beam all over and love you
for six hours; offer him the 10
cents with which to buy it for him-
self and he will throw it in your
fave. Give a man a pass to a show
and he will call you a good fellow
in all the languages at his disposal;
offer him the money to buy a ticket
and he will call you a fool. Ask i
man to your home to take "pot
luck" and he will jump at the
chance; give him $2 and tell hua
to get a good meal at a cafe witL
your compliments aud he wiil
knock (you down. The dollar
mighty but it isn't warm. Nothing
chills hospitality and good fellow
ship more than the touch of col i
metal. You may spend money zv
a friend but you must not ask InV.i
to touch it. Silver isn't a good con-
ductor and you can't transmit half
as much cordiality and hospitality
to a friend through the medium o
a dollar as by means of a bad cigar.
Money substitutes for good look
and good sense with great success
but it can't take the place of gooU
fellowship worth a toothpick.
The man who believes in steariv
advertising and distributes his ap-
propriation judiciously throughetx
the year will meet with gren'- r
returns than the chap who spe:i. '
the same amount in two or thr.
big plunges and then lies back
regain his wind. Tnisie no in- .
theory. Steady advertising n
with judgement during
periods serves not only to m '.
less dull but has also a cumulai:
effect whose full fruitage is gatln :
ed in the busy season. It.must.
course be with judgment. Pn..
