Keep Bright and You
WILL KEEP BUSY
Hlcctric Light Is the magnet that draws trade. The
bright store Is the "hypnotic eye" of business. People can
no more resist the attraction ol a brilliant, lilectricully lighted
store than they can resist the clarion call of a brass hand.
Is your couietitor with the Klcctricnlly illuminated show
windows, bright interior and sparkling Hlcctric Sign getting
nu advantage over you ? The moth never llutters around the
uullghtcd candle! Uptodiito stores nowadays consider
shop-window lighting a necessity, whether they remain open
after dark or not. Competition foices modern methods.
A show window brilliantly illuminated with Hlcctric
light will make many a sale "the night before." Hlcctric
light coiiiih;1s attention, makes visy the examination of your
display, shows goods in detail ami fabrics in their true colors.
And don't neglect the Hlcctric Sign. It is soliciting
"tomonowV business every moment it is lighted burning
your name in the public mind. It is a solicitor that never
becomes weary never htops work costs little.

Heard a Cricket.
Mr. HowBcr walked on for half a
mile nnd then reached the suburbs.
lie had 110 sooner struck vacant prop
erty than tho voice of n cricket reach
ed him. It was n plnlutlvo voice. It
seemed to say that tho watermelon
season was ovor, tnlnco plos had bo
come tho fashion again nnd that tho
world had no longer any use for crick
eta. Matches In plenty had been
brought along, and the nmatcur nat
urallst wan soon down on his knees
and Hashing the light over the grass.
After Ave inlnutca ho eamo fuce to face
with a cricket. It wns nn old shell

singing all summer and now had a
tired and dusty look. Ho even looked
Into Mr. Bowser's eyes with what
seemed to be nn appeal, He didn't
wnnt money, but ho certnlnty had cold
feet and wns thinking of feather bod,
Ho hadn't burrowed and he hadn't
frozen to death, and the discovery
didn't solve tho problem. The Insect

"Do I know? Do I know?" shouted
the man na he begun to swing hi

"Why, If you aro so mighty partial

"Well, I nm thnt, and you got off,
Vou may bo hunting for crickets, nnd
you may bo hunting for geese, nnd you
can t go too soon to please me."
Mr. Howser went lie renlliod that a
row In tho neighborhood would dlo
turb till tho crickets for a mtlo around.
lie continued his walk for half a tnllo
nnd then turned aside from the strcot
ngaln. There was uo saloon In sight,
and tho nearest house was forty rods
nwny, He now caught thu voices of at
least six crlckots, and he paused to In
terprct them. A uenr as lie could
mnku out, half of them wanted hot
beef ten and wooleu blankets, and tho
other hnlf wnuted to borrow spade
nud plcknxes to do their burrowing
with. Ilu got dowu nnd lighted more
mutches, nud bo was carefully paw
lug over tho cold ami brittle grans
when ho heard n horao coming on a

himself up when a mounted policeman
halted twsldo him nnd asked:
