A few years ago the Lincoln Com
mercial chili took a decided stand
against the ludlsurlmliiiito advertising
that then prevailed In Lincoln. Through
luck of co opciatlnii , It was said , Liu
coin merchants worn forced into all

Strangers cnmo to Lincoln and worked
up all kinds of advertising schemes.
Many weie pure fakes ; nearly all
were profitless to the merchant. And
Lincoln Itself offered Innumurahlu
places to drop advertising mouny , people

of forms for all kinds of causes.
