Tie Some men figure that as the mercury climbs up sales will fall down. And figuring that way, fate is kind and does not disappoint them. So there has grown up a commercial supersti- tion that Summer is a dull season. No greater fallacy has ever gone so long un-. challenged. Summer is a dull season for many there is no fundamental reason why it should be. Por instance, take a typical of the Canadian wallpaper manufacturers. They wished to secure their placing orders from the retailers before the early American lines are offered. Through educa- tion by Advertising, they advanced the season to start the middle of June, instead of the end of August, and they now beat their foreign competitors to the market by nearly three months. Perhaps you face a selling problem that edu- cation by Advertising will solve. Perhaps your Summer business needs the tonic of Summer Advertising. As the mercury climbs up to its highest degree, increase, rather than slacken, your Advertising and selling efforts. You will find it the highest degree.
