Your .goods may bp superior, your clerks may be cour- teous, your store attractive, but, after all, unless your de- liveries are prompt and dependable, your customers will be disappointed and trade elsewhere next time. Do you realize huw many people judge a ctore by its deliveries? Is your delivery system on a par with the rest of your busi- ness? Does it draw new trade or Jose customers for you? Are your horses as suitable for ycu as they vere at one time? II not, why do jou pcrsibt.in being a little behind tlie times, when a Ford One Ton Truck' would be more in line 'with your other business standards? Perhaps your deliveries cost you too much. -If you are using motor trucks, they may be too heavy for your lino of busi- ness and therefore too expensive. The Ford Truck uses tea fuel when handling a full load than some triidis use running empty. The 'Ford One Ton Truck is a money saver, so why not modernize this department of, your business at once?
