Keep Bright and You
WILL KEEP BUSY
Electric Light is the in iguet that draws trade. The
bright store is the "hypnotic eye" of business. People can
no more resist the attraction of n brilliant, Electrically lighted
store than they can resist the clarion call of a brass baud.
Is your competitor with the Electrically illuminated show
windows, bright interior and sparkling Electric Sign getting
nu advantage over you? The moth never flutters around the
iiulighted candlel Up-to-date stores nowadays consider
shop-window lighting a necessity, whether they remain open
after dark or not. Competition forces modern methods.
A show window brilliantly illuminated with Klcctric
light will make many a sale "the night before." Electric
light compels attention, makes eisy the examination of your
display, siiows goods in detail and fabrics in their true colors.
And don't neglect the Electric Sign. It is soliciting
"tomorrow's" business every moment it is lighted burning
your name in the public mind. It is 11 solicitor that never
becomes weary never stops work costs little.

way of the development of the pub

The aim of the university is to
serve not only the students who
arc within its walls for instruction,
but also the people of the state at

courses have been established and
iustruction is now being given to
250 students in every part of the
