TIME IS MONEY.
A.WORD TO ADVERTISERS.
The fact that there are all sorts of raen con¬
stantly travelling around taking up the time of
business men, in soliciting and boring them for
advertisements for a thousand different Jrinds of
publications, naturally begets a repugnance, up¬
on the part .of many people,-to the subject of
advertisiug in any shape. To prevent any con¬
founding of. the business agent of the advertis¬
ing department of the Record with such bores
is the object of this article. Our regular agent,
Mr. W. J. Slater, who has charge of our adver¬
tising depftrtnient, is very experienced, active, en¬
ergetic, and courteously accommodating in his en¬
deavors to do business. While never descending
to importunity, he is keenly alive to all opportuni¬
ties presenting themselves for making contracts,
and is always willing to call a dozen times when
the exigencies of business require. Any busi¬
ness manj however, upon whom he may call,
should remember that his time is valuable, and
he should not be put off for trivial reasons and
asked to call again and again unnecessarily.
Parties who do not wish to advertise can
secure themselves from anything like impor¬
tunity by • informing- him immediately of, the
fact. Those wishing him to call again at some
particular time,, when they will have more
leisure, to'talk the niatter over, will find him
What we wish our friends to consider, is, that
we do not ask advertisements through favor,
but offer our columns to those for whose busi¬
ness it is' specially adapted, purely as a matter
of business; and we wish no advertisements
bestowed on ns as charily or for the purpose of
helping us along, as we hold that, in accepting
an advertisement, we confer as great a favor as
we receive, .and return in full the value of the
money. ' -
The Real Estate Record . is now publish¬
ing its seventh volume, and it is with no small
degree of pride that the projectors of the enter¬
prise state the fact that it is steadily growing in
value, in circulation, and in the appreciation of
those for whom its distinctive features are in¬
tended. Although this is the dullest season of
the year, the Record has added some two hun¬
dred names to its subscription list since the first
day of January, and now claims a cu-culation of
nearly six thousand copies.
The list [of specialties published in the Re¬
cord, which can be found in no other paper,
gives it a circulation among all classes, and
there is no kind of business to which it does not
On Thursday last we received no less than
seven calls from parties interested in having
liens affecting their property left out of the
columns of the Record. Our. answer to each
and every one was the same, that it was simply
impossible, and no lien would be left out under
any circumstances, unless it should appear on
fche docket to have been satisfied on or before
Friday at 12 o c lock M.
We accept six dollars per year from each and
every one of our subscribers, who in return
expect to receive, accurately, all information
which we purport to furnish; and we trust in
future all persons wiU save themselves the
trouble of calling for the purpose of having any
lien, judgment, transfer of real estate, or any
information of any kind left out which affects
the interests of our subscribers.
A WORD OF CAUTION.
Notwithstanding the fact that we have
repeatedly cautioned parties in regard to pay¬
ing any money due the Real Estate Record
to any one but our regular collector, we are oc¬
casionally in the receipt of a commtmication
from some person who has allowed.himself to
be swindled out of a year's subscription to the
Record by some worthless fellow representing
himself as authorized to receive .money.
We wish all subscribers to distinctly imder-
stand that no money is to be paid to any one
but our regular collectors, Mr Thomas P. Cum¬
mings, or Mr. Henry p. Smith, who will, in all
cases, have printed receipts made out regularly
at the oflBce. No receipt not made upon one
of our printed forms wUl be acknowledged in
Me. Tweed, on Wednesday last, introduced
a bill in the Senate to repeal the law authoriz¬
ing the widening of Broadway, and under which
damages have recently been awarded to the prop¬
erty owners. This bill, if passed, will seriously
affect the interests of many persons who have
lately acqtiired title to propi|i±y located on the
route of the proposed widening.
To THE Editor of the Re<vl Estate Record :
We desire to explain, not to correct, an inser¬
tion in the Real Estate Record, of the 14th
instant, noticing the fact of a foreclosure suit
commenced against A. Kennedy & Son. This
suit arose out of a misunderstanding between
the parties as to which should call on the other
for or with the money, which has always been
ready. Our position in the Real Estate market
demands this explanation, which we hope you
win give us the opportunity of making pubUc.
