The difference between poor
stock and first class stock on a job
is a small item when you consider
the value of the job. It is the
Erice of a satisfied customer. It is
etter to make 50 cents less on a
job aud have a customer who will

stock, make the extra 50 cents aud

that our prices must be ,

Keep Bright and You
WILL KEEP BUSY
Klectric Light is the magnet that draws trade. The
bright store is the "hypnotic eye" of business. People can
no more resist the attraction of a brilliant, Ulectricnlly lighted
store than they can resist the clarion call of a brass bnnd.
Is your competitor with the Klectrically illuminated show
windows, bright interior nnd sparkling Klectric Sign getting
an advantage over you? The moth never flutters around thu
uulighled candlel Up-to-date stores nowadays consider
shop-window lighting a necessity, whether they remain ojhjh
after dark or not. Competition forces modern methods.
A show window brilliantly illuminated with Klectric
light will make many a 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 Klectric 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.
