ADVANTAGES OF ADVERTISING. ———♦—— At the Middlesex Sessions, at Clerkenwell, on Saturday, before Mr. R. D. M. Littler, K.C. (chair- man), Stuart Robson, fifty, photographer, was in- dicted for obtaining various sums, amounting to about F,70, by false pretencec. One count was that of obtaining L61 in connection with advertising "n schemes. The ideas were of his own invention, and among them was the. "Periphone." a tele- phonic contrivance which was said to enable a man in the street to hear what vaE, going on inside a theatre by applying to a "sandwichman" in charge of the instrument The "O&msyke" was an in- strument. by which boys were io photograph dver- tising. hoardings as they rode along on bicycles. The object was to shew advertisers whether their placards were intact. Another idea was that of a captive balloon to float over the Alexandra. Palace with &dvertisements on it. Robson was a great believer in advertising, and the following appeared in his circular: The constant drop of water Wears away the hardest stone, The constant gnawing Towzer Masticates the toughest bone, The constant cooing iover Carries off the blushing maid, And the constant advertiser ls the one who gets the trade. Robson handed the Court a long statement, whereon he was put back until next Sessions for further inquiries.
