She had offered to sell her talent to a theatrical manager, but not her soul. The offer'had been refused and she was tormented by the Barbed thrusts of hunger. With a few pennies remaining ot iier legacy, she trod rainswept streets to a cheap bakery, where she bought a loaf of bread. It.might put color into her cheeks and &k her for a decent place in a theatrical company forming. � , , , ^ ,  She slipped; to the wet pavement and the bread, rolled Into the gutter, a soggy mass of dough. A limousine stopped in front of a palatial cafe. In^'the car was the man she thought she, loved and another. man J who, ifevM, hei"' worthily.

R.HAMILTON Former Advertitinff Manager WnnamaJter's, PhUaddphia PIFTY years ago every store Kad a "barker" jttet as every sideshow has now. He was not so loud* but he was equally insistent. He stood on the sidewalk in front of his store and urged youjtpconr^ein. When you entered, he rang a bell. Yoii were surrounded by highwaymen and there immediately be^an a system of brigandage which was not even surpassed by hold-up rnen oh lonely, roads. � '' . \ � ; \ ;�, _ , �� - The first business of these so-called salesmen was to find out how much moneyyou had. Every ruse was resorted to to get yoii to open your wallet or your purse. The second object was to get as much of ihatmoney as possible and his value to his concern was measured entirely by your loss'. � � �'� ��. ' . . i' ' � This is not romance; it is history. Not the worst stores, but many of the best stores did it. Th\^re) was the (^mihetvh ial Law of the land. It was understood that you ai^d the merchant were commercial enemies and that you were his legitimate prey^; ' U Such things as a definite price or the returiiability of merchandise or a guarantee or good faith would have been considered foolhardy. Now, out of all this chicancery, this clrpss-roads bartering, this world-old hostility of buyer aiid seller, have come the clean, wholesome, trust-worUiy institutions of the present day. And the one great factor that has brought this change about is- Advertising. And the reason for this is that, a .man is naturally far more careful of what he Writes than of what he merely says. Today you walk into a store with as' Imuch ccjiifidence as ypii would eiiter yoiiir qwn home. You feel that every possible safe-guard is thrown about you for your protection. The merchant, where he once was your commercial enemy, has become your business represeutative. Your pleasure is his command. He will do anything within reason to meer should mean so mucK-to you. That is why you slioujd make this advertising part of your daily That is why you should begin to read it today, and continue to read it every day for everything you buy^. ,1 --Ui^t 6667??79 ;
