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