A Religion of Ministering
To The Suffering
We are glad we live in a day when
religion carries with it clinics for healing
the bodies of our boys and girls, who
otherwise would go through life crippled.
There is something deeply touching
to see a hand trained by the skill of
science and the schools of medicine and
surgery, reach into the areas where dis-
ease and deformity hold sway, and with
the touch of the trained hand and eye,
release the captive and send them on their

of modem heart beats.

Denison is having at least two new
business houses opening up here in the

If the coming to the city of new concerns
portends anything, it points to a generally
good business year for 1937.

MAKE YOUR ADVERTISING TALK
What's the use of digging- down and paying the printer
unless your advertising pays you?
And what’s the use of stopping your ads, and saying,
“Oh, advertising doesn’t pay,’’ when you CAN make it
fairly drag folks into your store?
The service your product gives overlaps the interest
the public may have in it, and this, not its history
or manufacture, is the POINT Ol? SELLING CON-
Therefore . . . employ ' atmosphere'* to convey the
sense of joy or service, convenience, comfort; rather
than technicalities to impress details on advertising
tired minds. But not all pictures and smart talk are
‘‘atmosphere.’’ Suggestion should never be over-
reaching or insincere. The science of advertising,
if there be such, lies in this: Make the reader see
FOR HIMSELF that which you are eager to have
him see and doing it WITHOUT eagerness.
TRAIN ROBBERS OF DAYS
