HIcctric Unlit is the ningnet that draws trade. The
bright store is the "hypnotic eye" of business. People can
no more resist the attraction ot it brilliant, Electrically lighted
store than they can resist the clarion call of n brass band.
Is your competitor with the Klectrlcnlly illuminated show
windows, bright interior nnd sparkling HIcctric Sign getting
an advantage over you? The moth never flutters tirouud the
uulightcd candle! Up-to-date stores nowadays consider
shop-window lighting n necessity, whether they remain open
after dark or not. Competition forces modern methods.
A show window brilliantly illuminated with HIcctric
light will make many n sale "the night before." HIcctric
light compels attention, makes easy the examination of your
display, shows goods in detail aud fabrics in their true colors.
Aud don't neglect the HIcctric Sign. It is .soliciting
"tomorrow's" business every moment it is lighted burning
your name in the public mind. It is n solicitor that never
becomes weary never stops work costs little.
