Soheorehere' Advertising; Department
The value cf Luis department is am
ply demonstrated by the letters of ap
preciation constantly received by the
publisher. Abram H. Smith of Li
gonior, Ind., writes as follows: "I
want to add my mite and bear testi
mony to The Commoner as an adver
tising medium for its patrons. The
two weeks' insertion of the little n
vertisement of the Norman stallion
brought me letters from New York,
Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and
Nebraska, and finally a sale at my
own price." Mr. Smith's experience
is the experience of many others. Only
Commoner . subscribers are admitted
to tis department, and all advertise
ments areset uniformly in order that
none may" be more prominent than,
others. The rate is 6 cents per word
per insertion, in advance. The utmost
care is exercised to prevent tho ad
mission of unreliable or unworthy "ad
vertisements. Readers of The Com
moner aro aware of this, hence their
confidence in the reliability of Com
moner advertisers. Address all orders
