If you didn't want to arrive at any place in particular, you might choose the latter. But not otherwise. i Before you, as buyer, run two roads. One is the road of knowledge of an advertised product. Thousands use it. There's no mystery about it, no doubting, nothing hidden. It leads the way definitely to a fountain pen, a floor wax, a tooth-paste that will give you satisfaction. When you use an advertisement, you use an open road. When you don't use advertisements, you go the doubtful road. You have only hazy knowledge of the product ahead. No trade-mark or name to depend upon guides you. The result may or may not be worth the effort. You don't know. Read the advertisements. Anything widely advertised breakfast food, hammer, hair tonic has proved itself good by advertising. Advertisements put you on the open road to satisfaction
