What Advertising Means. The editor of the Spring Valley Mercury believes that "if one mer- chant in a town advertises, others aro sure to do the same thing. If they all advertise they will do better business. They will have better stores and bet- ter stocks and the town will attract and draw outside business.

Judge Morris the other day stated that hereafter nothing but jail sentences would be handed out in his co'art for convicted liquor law breakers.

What Advertising Means. The editor of the Spring Valley Mercury believes that "if one mer- chant in a town advertises, others aro sure to do the same thing. If they all advertise they will do better business. They will have better stores and bet- ter stocks and the town will attract and draw outside business. When you see a town that does not advertise you see just the kind of a town that loses its trade to another." i i| One of the reasons why bootlegging and ,moonshining have reached their present disgraceful proportions is that Judges in imposing sentences have been too lenient. Assessing $100 to $150 fines on men who make that much in a week selling the booze is not calculated to put much stop to the business. In fact it is not much more than a cheap license. Judge Morris the other day stated that hereafter nothing but jail sentences would be handed out in his co'art for convicted liquor law breakers. If all judges would adopt the same policy, it would not fake very long to clean up the moonshiners and the bootleggers. Long Prairie Leader. The Co-Operative Method. He: "Can you keep a secret?"
