Of all the articles you buy how many are NOT advertis

The following story will show why the majority of buyers
insist upon having only advertised goods of merit:
A young man in one of the large cities learned to make
hominy. It was the old-fashioned kind—the best you ever
tasted. He began to make it to sell in pint glass jars at fif

Advertising has reduced the operating expences of the
retailer and this helps keep prices DOWN.
The retail business is built on advertising. The best
.sellers in every line are advertised continuously, month after
month. It is advertising that puts the goods on the shelves,
and again it is advertising that moves the goods from the
store to the home of the customer.
You buy advertised goods because you know what you
are getting. You know that the test of continuous advertis
ing is the best possible guaranty of the quality of the goods.
Advertising tells you where to buy what you want—
when you want it.
