VOL XXXVI Cattaraugus, New York, February 23, 1920. No. 8/ NEW METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH m m M TO BE BUILT THIS SUMMER. K A site has been purchased for the new Methodist Epis­ copal Church building on the south-east corner of Sooth and J Washington streets embracing two lots, one being & part of the Johnson estate and the other the Fuller property oricu-. pied by Dr. Frank. The project will be pushed from now on. . ■ ■ / ' \ ' .:■• ‘ . J Cattaraugus, with its splendid new school building, its fine homes and up-to-date manufacturing plants and, its pro­ gressive-citizens, needs such a church plant ij^fs contem­ plated, a building that wftll fittingly represent the high spir­ itual ideals upon which all true and worth while community life rests. . .._ A special grant of $8,000 has been made by the Board of Home Missions and Church Extension from Centennary funds toward this project. To avail itself of this offer it be­ comes necessary that the church build this year as this pro­ ject has been placed in the first year’s program. Advertising is Help to Business Farmer That farming, the biggest business in the world, and ad­ vertising the greatest selling force, need to get together, was one of the points brought out last week at the communi­ ty newspaper conference held in connection with farmers’ Week at Cornell. The farmer needs to do two Ttinds of advertising, it was declared: First, educational advertising, the same sort the meat packers and the railway executive are doing. The rea­ son the city man sometimes says that the farmer is profit­ eering is because he does not realize all the expenses which go into the production of food, plant or animal. A farm publication was quoted which advocates the creation of a fund by associa­ tion of farmers which shall be used for a national campaign in the newspapers and maga­ zines\ tp.tellthe story of agri­ culture. y, “Take thejfÈ f man into your confrarace,” says the farm paper .to the farmer. “Tell him the wonderful story of production. It is awonder- Mill itory. Iruagriotffture you .the gxéitest romance of Show him what it Cons to raise your bushel or peck of onions. You have /factors entering into these costs which would stagger a bank examiner.” The greatest part of the dis­ cussion was devoted to wAys in vhich farmers may adver­ tise their own produçts and thus get better markets than \ when they sell through the usual channels. It was declar­ ed that every farmer advertis­ es more or less, for advertising is only telling what you- have to sell and showing why the ether man should buy it. When farmer says to à neighbor, “Say, Bill, know anybody that wants a couple of fine \pigs? There’re dandies.” That’s ad­ vertising. So is it advertising when a farmer has an auction and has a few bills “ “ struck off.” Those at the conference were urged to buy good bills, printed on good paper, éven though they might cost more than cheaper ones. A good bill, about 18x24 inches in size will cost about $7.00 per GO, it was said. But good as a bill may be it was felt that^aA advertisement in the local paper is much bet­ ter. “The-Hreader must go to the bill, while the ad goes to th^reader,’’’S^srrtie way this was phrased. Twe possibili- : ties of “ readers.” or want ads, riyas emphasized, and it was ¡pointed out that in those as well as tiré-larger display ads it is possible to so word them that they have real selling * force. “ Man, these are real apples, Kings, the kind I eat myself. A bushel delivered at _.>;,oSr door will cost only $3.00. This will sell more apples, it: wa»*raid, than “ For Sale, King apples, $3.00 a bushel.” There are great possibilities in display advertising for far­ mers it was thought And the western farmers are realizing ft. They take page ads when they have an auction, instead of using a bill and a few-line reading notice. ~One farmer in the Dakotas takes space by the year, like any other business man. —No publisher today ehould sel lspace for less than 20 cents p.er inch it was stated.
