LIKE CAESAR'S WIFE The product or service which you find advertised so appealingly in your daily newspaper must, like Caesar's wife, be above suspicion. , For the shortcoming's of unworthy merchandise, which silence might have safely concealed, are always rapidly revealed by the spotlight of publicity. And it is by this token that advertising proves so great a public boon. It is, indeed, the true searchlight of selection. Read, then, the varied advertisements in this paper with confidence and assurance. For, if an insurance company o rtrust company, a pastry shop or dressmaking establishment, a taxi service or a sporting goods shop can survive the test of consistent advertising, it merits your support and patronage.
