THANKSGIVING EDITION.
The is now preparing
its special Thanksgiving edition, and
we call the attention of advertisers
to an opportunity to do some very
effective advertising.
Our Thanksgiving edition last
year was warmly praised in Green-
ville, Pitt county, and throughout
the state. This year we shall strive
to do better, both as regards oar
readers and our advertisers. The
Thanksgiving edition will have
from to pages, and will have a

articles on Thanksgiving and
topics by well known and inter-
local writers, and short
Thanksgiving sermons by the
ministers in Greenville. This
special edition will be mailed the
night before Thanksgiving, and will
be delivered to our mil in
Greenville early
morning.

readers or advertisers anything that
is not fully worth their money, and
this special edition will be no ex-
This is undoubtedly the best ad-
opportunity our business
men will have this year. In order
to secure the must attractive

desire at once. No ado will be re-

Remember, the first

edition will be given his choice

A WINNING COMBINATION.
Col. Walter R. Henry's statement
has appeared in print. It was given
to the public in Saturday's Charlotte
Observer and is addressed as a per-
letter to T. S. Rollins,
chairman of the republican executive
committee of the stale. As was ex-
the statement is something
lengthy and interesting. It clearly
sets forth side of the
affair and shows conclusively, that
that while he was regarded by bank-
as one of the best bank examiners
in he was removed from
to make room for a pet of a
higher official, which has become a
fad in Washington political circles
Col. Henry's political record of shift-
ins from party to party in search of
pie does not entitle him to much
sympathy, but in this case we can
but feel sorry for him in the wrong
that has been done him. However,
justice and honor are but little es-
teemed in the ranks of republican-
ism.

the Charlotte Observer, says the

of corruption and infamy, and it is
time the better people were crying
them down. It is a shame that in
Carolina the people's money
is for such a thing as
they pull off in under the
name of an agricultural fair.

sometimes fixed, but why is it that
the defense is always allowed to do
the ask the Durham Herald.
Because the state hasn't any money.
This is the best time of year to
advertise, if there is any best time,
and the merchant who neglects it
now loses a golden opportunity.
From now until after the holidays
more money will be spent for house-
hold and personal necessities and
holiday luxuries than in twice the
length of time in any other portion
of the year. The man who goes
after business with a bright, truth-
convincing ad is sure to do the
most business, and to win customers
who will stick by him through life.
You've got to show people that
you are anxious for their trade and
appreciate it. It is a century-old
business method to sit down and
wait, hoping that you will get a
part of the customers who come to
town or come down town. You've

wherein it is to their advantage to

everybody in can't
write letters to them all. There is
only one sure way to get
value for money expended, and that
is to advertise regularly, persistent-
sensibly in some good,
newspaper covering the field
which it is possible for you to
from. Don't go about it in a slip-
shod, careless, hurried way. That
is one of the quickest ways of get-
ting rid of good money. Put as
much business thought in your
preparations for advertising as you
do in baying goods, and you will
reap a profit in proportion.
In the first place, can you write
an advertisement that will draw

Everybody's Magazine November, 1903.
A mission is liable to swamp a
magazine. So much zeal is
oped that the real function of the
publication, which is to entertain, is
forgotten, this excess Every-
body's Magazine, which has recent-
undertaken a crusade against the
habit in America,
is obviously not to be led. The
November con tents-table makes a
most inviting showing, presenting
as it docs stories and sketches by
such amusing writers as Alfred Hen.
Lewis, Henry and Eugene
Wood. There is no intrusion of a
policy at all, and the reader is likely
to find himself in the midst of Fran-
