from th influence of the Want Ad. No form of advertising in recent years haa been more pro
ductive of definite results. , '
Why? Because the public has come to realize the full value of time and money.
It used to be when one had anything to exchange, a whole day or perhaps weeks were spent
hunting somebody who wanted to "swap."
It used to be that you had to ask everyone in your employ if they knew where you could find
additional employes. '
And when you had a house, farm or lot to sell the news was circulated by word of mouth.
The old-fashioned method took time.
It's different now. With the enormous circulation of The Bee the news of whatever you may
want will reach one hundred times as many people in one day as you used to reach in two weeks.
And it takes only ten minutes of your time to prepare the ad and a few cents for its insertion in
the classified columns.
Results? Yes, and quickly the next day.
A glance at the Want Ads in The Bee will show that others are already deriving much benefit
