What is the nse of making a better
article than your competitor if you can
not get a better price for it ?
Ans. As there is no difference in the
price the public will buy only the better,
so that while our profits may be smaller
on a. single sale they will be much
greater in the aggregate.
How can you get the pablic to know
your make Is the best?
If both . articles are brought promi
nently before the public both are certain
to he tried and the public will very
quickly pass judgment on them and use
only the better one.
