Keep Bright and You
WILL KEEP BUSY
Klectric Wght is the magnet that draws trade. The
bright store is the "hypnotic eye" of business, People can
uo more resist the attraction of a brilliant, Electrically lighted
store than they can resist the clarion call of a bra: baud.
Is your competitor with the Electrically illuminated show
windows, bright interior and sparkling Klectric Sign getting
nn advuntage over you? The moth never flutters around the
unlighted candle! 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 Klectric
light will make many a sale "the night before." Klectric
light coniels attention, makes easy the examination of your
display, shows goods iu detail and fabrics' in their true colors.
And 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.
