A very pretty ceremony takes place
every year on the shore of the lake, whrn
a miniature men-of-war, decorated with
flowers, is launched in memory of the
dead In our naVy. There is alwava quite
a crowd, and In such surroundings the
whole affair tskes on the nature of a
pageant. It la an extremely pretty thing
to watch from a distant vantage point.
Once or twice during the summer a
band plays on the veranda of the club
house, but there are not such crowds to
hear It as at other places, t suppose be
cause the neighborhood Is not at all con
gested. For the casual listener this Is a
pleasant feature. It Is to be hoped that
musla In the parks will become a regular
thing. The people certainly love It. and cf
all amusements. It is the most Innocent
and delightful.

Adrertising "Staples"

"But, look at the manufao
turers who have grown rich
without advertising," says
the skeptic.
Of course manufacturers
have grown rich without ad
vertising The manufactur
er of a "staple1' can do busi
ness from year io year with
out advertising. It is the
manufacturer who has trade
marked his 6taple, however,
and has built up a good will
asset for it through advertis
ing who has made the great
est success. Others have
trailed along in the path
which he has blazed, doing
business on the strength of
his advertising, bribing tho
consumer with premiums
and buying the dealers with
"free deals." Didyouever
hear of a manufacturer
making money out of a spe
cialty without advertising.
Now, what's the differ
once between astaple" and
a "specialtyf" A "staple",
is a .commodity that is in
universal use, like soap,
soup, crackers, matches, cof

is a product of inventive
genius, usually covered by
patents, intended to meet ft

may be classified as a lux
ury rather than a necessity.
The average person might
easily get along without it.
All salable commodities
can be classed as either
"staples" or "specialties."
Sometimes a "specialty"
comes into such universal
use through years of vigor
ous advertising that it may
become classified as a "sta
ple." And this naturally di
vides advertising into two
classes: (1) those who have
to create a new want; (2)
those who supply a want
that already exists. The ad
vertiser who manufactures
a "specialty" has to create
a new want; the advertiser
who manufacturers a "sta
ple" is trying to fill a want
that is fundamental in hu
man nature or has its source
in universal habit or custom.
Modern merchandising,
therefore, presents two ad
vertising problems calling
for different plans and wide
ly different methods. The
manufacturer must recog
nize this distinction, espe
cially if he is to get the larg
est results from money ex
pended in newspaper adver
tising. If he is manufactur
ing a specialty his advertis
ing calls for educational

A certain manufacturer of
crackers once upon a time
put thirty thousand dollars
of good money in his pocket
and sailed for France with
the declared intention of
changing the tastes end diet
etic habits of the French
people. His thirty thousand
dollars was soon gone and he
had not made a dent in the
racial habits of the French.
He could not wean them
from their own bakery prod
uts. The French, by the
way, are the best bakers in
the world. How uould" i s.ine
man expect to "educate"
them away from the habits

manufacturer of n certain
well-known breakfast cereal

dollars on tho Continent of
Europo trying to educate ihe
people to e it Iih breakfast
cereal, only to learn that
Continental races are not rt

manufacturer found out
what he should have learned
before he inaugurated this

Charles Mets conducted the negotia

Tha men did not In all Instances get
all they eased for. but the brewers in
creased their first proposition, which
waa between whst the men have been

In the case of assistant engineers they
hsve been receiving $23 a week for a
week of sewn sight-hour days. They

The manufacturer of shav

Getting down to the br&se
tacks of the proposition we
therefore arrive at the con
elusion that selling a "sta
ple" and selling a "special
ty" are two very different
problems. A "specialty' is
purely an advertising prop
ositionyou cannot sell it
without advertising. You
must first educate people to
use it, and having created a
demand for it, the distribu
tion will naturally fall into
the hands of those dealers
who are the natural distrib
utors for a commodity of
that character. In order to
secure the widest possible
distribution it is necessary
to make an extensive use of
the newspaper for "cashing
in" on the educational work
that haa been done by the
manufacturer of a "special
ty." Just how 'Advertising
may become an important
factor in the merchandising
of a "staple" will be shown
in the next "Talk."
