The Mill of Circumstances
In this city, as everywhere, the Mill of Cir
cumstances is grinding away 24 hours a day
and today it may be grinding YOUR GRIST, It
may be turning one of the.jncidents of this town's
daily life into an opportunity for you into an ad
vantage for you.
When a merchant gets caught in "the Mill,"
and is pressed for cash, YOU benefit in the en
forced sacrifice of some of his stocks that is,
YOU BENEFIT if you keep posted on what is
going on at "the Mill" by reading the ads.
A real estate owner gets into "the Mill" and
sacrifices some of his property in ordei to pet
out again pays his toll.
The owners of things automobiles, securities,
businesses, machinery, horses and carriages,
typewriters, office fixtures, houses, books, pic
turesget into tills "Mill of Circumstances," and
out of their troubles come your opportunities,
They pay the toll.
Incidentally, it's better to watch the ads and
to profit by the products of "the Mill" than to
get caught in it yourself, Although, if your turn
should come, an ad will usually get you out safety
