Linville and Sons Advertise

From the November 10, 1903 Skidmore Standard, page 1:

It Pays to Advertise.

Several weeks ago Linville & Sons purchased a cow of King & Hollenbeck and brought her home.  In a few days she disappeared and no trace of her could be found.  After riding the country over with no results they thought of the saying, “It pays to advertise,” so this paper run a short local to the effect that a cow had strayed.  In a few days the missing animal was located.  These parties are now fully convinced that advertising is just what it is said to be and we think a man of judgement had rather spend a few cents for a notice than a hard week’s riding.

Let us tell the people what you want, or what you have you don’t want.
