S SAVli MONEY AT GAINES MKT. US W. Main I'hoi FROM AMERICA'S FIRST MODERNISTIC PREPA|ATION PLANT As Modern as the Plant in which it is prepared $7.00 ton GAY & BILLINGS PHONE 76 CHALLENGE TO CHI'ZZLEWITS There once was a merchant named Chizzlewit who trimmed his tree every Christmas and his customers every day. He was a'canny, creature, this Chizzlewit, and knew how to win a customer by guile. The shirts he sold were cheaply woven, packed with powder to make them seem firm. To conceal their inferiority he told customers that he always wore them himself. In the glassware department he "made up" for poor quality by giving a set of pretty paper doilies with every purchase. He knew many cjuch clever tricks and used them without reserve. .Chizzlewit never advertised. He knew too well he could never fool people for long in print. . Advertising- must live up to its own claims. That is why you can have full confidence in goods consistently advertised. If the maker has a worthy product, fairly priced, he wants as many people as possible to know about it. If the product is unworthy, the printed word will only expose it .sooner. Christmas, and all around the calendar, read advertising. Makers and merchants stake their reputation, in cold black type, that what you read is true.
