WOMAN HITS STRAIGHT FROM
SHOULDER AT NON-ADVERTISERS
“What’s the use of me advertising? Everybody in this town
knows me and my store.”
The Pine Bluff (Ark.) Advertising Club offered a prize of $25
for the best essay on "Why I Buy Outside of Pine Bluff.” A
woman, Mrs. Robert Rogers, won the $35. Notice how she gives
it to the local merchants, straight from the shoulder. She wrote:
“One reason why I buy outside of Pine Bluff is the lack of ad
vertising among the merchants.
“The people of today buy through advertising, in Pine Bluff
and out. We have catalogs sent with descriptions of goods, and
while there may be just the same in Pine Bluff, we don't know
where it is or who has it. The merchants say: ‘Why don’t you
look for it. Here we are, at your service.’
"True enough, but we all follow the advertisement columns, and
a good many times are led out of town by papers and catalogs of
“Take the working girls, and there are many of them, who have
not the time to go from place to place hunting certain articles. We
have the catalogs and papers before us, and know just where we
can get the articles wanted. So we sit down and order certain
things sent ou approval, and one satisfactory purchase makes an
“This is very much easier than spending time and energy hunt
ing from store to store for articles that are neither displayed or
“Another reason is incompetent clerks. No merchant would
think of having an untrained bookkeeper or stenographer, and
yet we have to put up with untrained salespeople, some even lack
ing courtesy, others in knowledge of goods. Why not have meetings
where the salespeople could hear good lectures on selling methods.
Every customer is different. One should learn how to upproach
"Courtesy sells as much goods ns advertising. Another thing,
so few know how ro show their stock. For instance, in a place
like Pine Bluff I should say nine-tenths of the customers are known
to the salespeople. Yet we go in and are misled instead of being
shown what is within our means. We are shown some very hand
some, high-priced articles or else something too cheap, and we come
“We then pick up a paper or cataloog from unother town and
see just what we want and order it. The mail order houses try
to please and thereby catch a gool deal of the trade that might
be kept in Pine Bluff.”
Another thing this essay proves: There's no good in saying:
“There’ff no use in advertising to women; they’ll shop around
anyway.” This women didn’t, and the fair presumption is that
hundreds and thousands of her sisters in Pine Bluff and other
towns are following her example.
It's the advertiser who gets the business, locally as well as
nationally.—Editor & Publisher.

Sunday night there came to a close
at the First Baptist church a two
weeks’ series of evangelistic meetings.
The pastor and church hud enguged
the services of Dr. William R. Owen,
of Macon, but at the last minute he
was taken sick and could not come to
fill his engagement, so the local mem-
hers went on with the meeting. The
congregations were large from the very
start and the afternoon meetings held
at four o’clock duily were, In point of
uumbers and helpfulness, the best ever
held in the church.
Twenty-five new members were add
ed to the church roll and the member
ship was greatly revived by these days
of spiritual refreshing spent together.
Rev. J. Frank Jackson, of Atlanta,
came over and was present the last few
days of the meeting. Though unable
to preach he is worth his weight in
gold to sit around and talk, pray and
do personal work in a revival. He is

the most successful and faithful work
