Now every city In the country that aspires telling thing, ana the Business or nm ma. man Is to b tolling, telling, telling always telling this or that glad story-in most ef fective' form. Persons of serious noieu and dignified trend might prefer to say that "The Associated Advertising Clubs of. America." are assembled In Omaha for na tional convention. But, Just think for a moment .how much gliatoulng Ink Is wasted in expressing that long name "The . Associated Advertising Clubs of America." Whereat. the. more forcible short cut, "ad. men," is takeu Into general acceptance. . - Printers' ink is the stock In trade of the men who have congregated In Omaha. Some of them buy I' but they all deal in It one' way or -another, whiuh'brluga to mind the fact that printers' Ink of luelf, is a dull, lifeless mass, little more-potent than o much axla grease, except when mixed with Idea. ' Bui, hen the ideas are added, printers' .Ink at once takes on mercurial abiQulty, vested with unrivaled convincing power, reaching more people the world over, than Is possible by any other means of communication.
