Electric Light is the magnet that draws trade. The
bright store is the "hypnotic eye" of business. People can
no more resist the attraction of n brilliant, Electrically lighted
store than they can resist the clarion call of n brass band.
Is your coinj-etitorwith the Electrically illuminated show
windows, bright interior nnd sparkling Electric Sign gutting
an ndvnutoge over you ? The moth never flutters around the
unlighted candle! Up-to-date stores nowadays consider
shop-window lighting n necessity, whether they remain open
after dark or not. Competition forces modem methods.
A show window brilliantly illuminated with Electric
light will make many n sale "thu night before." Electric
light compels attention, makes easy the examination of your
display, shows goods in detnil and fabrics itt their true colors.
And don't neglect the Electric Sign. It is soliciting
"tomorrow's" business every moment it is lighted burning
your name in the public mind. It is solicitor that never
becomes weary never stops work costs little.
