Klcctric Light is the mnguct that drnws trade. The
bright store is the "hypnotic eye" of business. People enn
no more resist the nttrnctiott ol a brilliant, Klcctrically lighted
store than they can resist the clarion call of n brass bund.
Is your competitor with thcKlcctrically illuminated show
windows, bright interior nnd sparkling Klcctric Sign getting
nu advantage over you ? The moth never Mutters nround the
uulightcd caudle I Up-to-date stores nowaday consider
shop-window lighting n necessity, whether they remain opun
after dark or not. Competition forces modem methods.
A show window brilliantly illuminated with Klcctric
light will make many n sale "the night before." Klcctric
light compels attention, makes eisy the examination of your
display, shows goods in detail and fabrics in thuir true colors.
Aud don't neglect the Klcctric Sign. It is soliciting
"tomorrow's" business every moment it is lighted burning
your mime in the public mind. It is n solicitor that never
becomes weary never stops work costs little.
