Two Pointed (aestiont Answered.
What is the one of making a better
article than your competitor if you can
not get a better price for it 7
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 tingle sale they will be much
greater in the aggregate.
How can you get the public to know
your make is tbe best?
If both articles are brought promi
nently before the public both are certain
to be tried and the public will very
quickly pass judgment on them and use
only the better one.
This explains the large tale on Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy. The people
have been using it for years and have
found that it can always be depended
upon. They may occasionally take up
with some fashionable noveltv put forth
with exaggerated claims, but are certain
to return to the one remedy that they
kuow to be reliable, and for coughs,
colds and croup there is nothing equal to
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. For
sale by Geo.' A. Harding.
