There is a certain system nueded In ad
vertising, which every business fnt shcitld
exercise, who desires to succeed. To this
class we would say that whatever yottr
poods, wares or merchandise may lie, re
tnemlicr flrSt system, perseverance and suc
cess go hand in hand. If yon are to intro
duce an article of valim vt necessity lo
would-be customers, it cannot be done by a
single effort or in a single mcdiu.h. There
ore many who, regarding one trial sufficient,
fold their binds alter its accomplishment,
and wonder that so litllo satisfaction Is at
tained thereby. In such cuso the fault is
invariably with tbo ail vert is.T. He must
l-tep bimscll U'Wire the people, nut only
Ibis month or this tear but const'tntti, or
when tbe season fur his busluesi comes
around. Pursuing this course, success is as
certain as tbe revolutions of tbe earth.
Abovo all-don't be spasmodic, Ui regarding
this liko any other branch of business, treat
it as inch. Every prominent advertiser will
testify to the truth of these remarks, mid
lurlbermore they will tell you it will oever
do to stop. Constant effort Is reiiuired here
as elsewhere, and tbey who tail to observe
tbe rule will learn tbo truthfulness by sad
experience and at their own cost. Never
withdraw from the eyes ofeustonieis the
best and most elective sign you can put
there. If you do they will bo attracted by
that of another, und suon forget both you
and your wares.-
Harrison- IIkciiatiiokx, a single man,

tion After Dinner Naps. Many persons are
in the habit of stoepingfor half an hour or
an hour after dinner. This is a bad prac
tice. Ten minutes sleep belore dinner is
worth more tbnn an hour after. It rests
and refreshes and prepares the system for
vigorous digestion. If sleep is taken after
dinner it should be in the silting posture, as
Ibe horizontal position is unfavorable to
healthful digestion. Let those wbo need
rest and sleep during the day take it before

A t sw yours ago, at the conclusion of a
Missionary sermon, the preacher requested
some one to .hand around tbe bat, and take
up a collection. A'young man, a- stranger
in the place, jumped up and commenced
circulating the bat and in-such a way as to
finish the job at tbe door, and passed out
with the proceeds. The preacher, eyeing
him as be went out, observed, if tbut young
man runs away with ibat money he'll be
damned. A deacoa sitting, by tbe window,
seeing hi in make off down tho Btreet, re
sponded : " And if be hasn't run away with
