might have been quite amusing for
an onlooker, but it certainly was not
the case with Mr. Iiolden. During

It made caused a beautiful carmlno

lightning shaped streak Just un

of room to see the beauties of St.

Klectric Liht is the magnet that draws trade. The
bright store is the "hypnotic eye" of business. People can
no more resist the attraction ol n brilliant, Electrically lighted
store than they can resist the clarion call of n brass baud.
Is your competitor with the Klcctricnlly illumiimted show
windows, bright interior and sparkling lilectric Sign getting
an nd vantage over you? The moth never flutters around the
ttulightcd cnudlc! 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 with lilectric
light will make many n sale "the night before." Klectric
light compels attention, makes easy the examination of your
display, shows goods in detail nnd fabrics in their true colors.
And don't neglect the lilectric 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.
