He's one of those men with an absurd fear of the ".waste-circulation" Bugaboo get away from the haunting thought that only 10 out of every 100 readers of a newspaper may be possible buyers of his goods. So he refused to advertise, and went a-canvassing people to come to his piano recitals. Then he wondered why they.didn't come. This is why: He wasn't reaching the people. His canvassers rang every door-bei! in town. They talked to some one in every house. But one in every household isn't enough if it doesn't happen to be the right person. And, as a rule, it iccaril the right was a servant, or a child. The woman of the house was seldom the man of the house, never. Now, if the piano maker had placed an id. in the newspaper, it would have reached thousands, where the canvassers could reach only hundreds. And even though only 10 per cent of the readers are actual piano buyers, this does tl-s1- lhs :d- j.g fc> iK; _ other 90 per cent -s wasted Advertising talks, not only to the prospective buyer, but also to his wife, his grown-up ions tnoV daughters, his his mother- in-law.

This and dozens of similar which might be cited to show that "waitc dilation" is an empty bugaboo, and should deter no one. Take the motor truck. It can be sold only to large firms Yet a motor truck manufacturer is successfully Advertising in daily papers.
