Advertising working in conjunction
with an effective sales plan Is the key to
modern commercial surcpts," said A. 1.
Gale of the Darlow Advertising agency In
an address before the Mld-'e: Imple
ment Dealers' association.
A few years ago, 'Does It pay to ad
vertise?' was an actual question," said
Mr. Gale. "Today there are more busi
ness men who say they can't afford to
do without advertising than there arc
those who express any doubt whatever on
the same question.
"Advertising has put the name 'Monnen'
In the mind of practically every person
in the country. As a result, Mrs. Men
ben Was offered several million dollar;!
for the name alone and refused it.
Every dollar that the Cudahy racking
company has put into the advertisement
of 'Old Dutch Cleanser,' Is considered an
asset. The Cudahy plants may be de
stroyed by fire, but you can't kill their
business In 'Old Dutch Cleanser,' unless
you take away from them the name and
trademark. Constant advertising creates
confidence In goods.
The mall order houses aie ahead of
the implement dealer and the Implement
manufacturer In their use of advertising.
It is tho mastery ot scientific salesman
ship on paper that made it possible for
Bears, Roebuck & Co. to take In $73,000,000
Farmers Have Money.
Mr. Gale said the rural districts are an
especially good field for advertising, as
the farmers have more money than any
other class of cttlsens and are now buy
ing bathtubs, heating plants and auto
mobilesluxuries that they didn't think
of a few years ago. A canvass of 90.000
farmers by a farm paper ot the middle
west, said Mr. Gale, disclosed the fact
that tho average annual Income of these
farmers last year was JJ,10, not Including
the food they used on their own tables.
J. A. Craig, a manufacturer ot Junes-
vllle, Wis., addiessed the dealers on "The
Relation of the Manufacturer to the Re
taller." C. M. Johnson of Rush City,
Mlrm:, who was to have talked on "Cost
Accounting," was unable to be present
fend the subject will be discussed by
others Thursday morning. Senator G. M.
Hitchcock will speak Thursday morning
on "Business and Politics."
Owing to the amount ot business to be
disposed of the convention, which was to
have closed Thursday night, will con
tinue through Friday.

OMAHA EPITOMIZES ASSETS
Corn Being Rushed
to Omaha Market
by Rural Holders
While Omaha dealers are 2 cents a
bushel above the Chicago market price,
Nebraska farmers are rushing their new
corn from the fields to market as fast as
they can. Instead ot declining with the
arrival of pew grain, corn prlcfs have
been advancing on the Omaha exchange.
The current price is 66ijf$7c a bushel for
new corn, compared wJtli',70,4 cents for
old crop. : , ,
Very little of the new grain has ap
peared In Omaha, but It is eolng into
country elevators at a rapid rate. The
Beal-Vincent company alone, at one small
country station, took In 2.D00 ' bushels of
corn Tuesday and has contracted for
25.000' bushels to be delivered within ten
Nebraska's crop this year will be worth
a couple of million dollars more than the
same quantity of grain in other states
is worth, due to the superior quality of
the Nebraska product.

They're Your Biscuit,
No matter how much we help
The credit all goes to you.
And all the failures due to faulty
flour are charged to the cook.
So this is your question, Madam.
When you order simply "a sack
of flour," you do yourself an in
justice. Flours differ immensely.
By simply saying "Gold Medal,"
you make certain of getting the
best flour ever milled.
Here is one of tjie proofs:
Gold Medal Flour, in the test of time, has come
to outsell all others.
Millions have made their comparisons. As a re-
suit, 24,000,000 folks daily
are now fed on the bakings of
Gold Medal Flour.
Just because they have
found, in the actual baking,
that no other flour gives the
results of Gold Medal.
