WATC H YOUR S T E P ! HOW THE UNSCRUPULOUS LEAD THE BLIND The home merchant stands as a silent guardian of your well-being in a commercial way. He presents a solid footing to you as a patron. On the other hand the "order by mail scavenger lays pitfalls into which, you are led blindly by alluring presentations of lav- ishiy designed and colored photogravures. It is into these designs and their accompanying "bait" prices that you fall to loss. It is to protect you against these pitfalls that the home merchant stands with honorable reputation and a willingness to make right anything that may displease you. He will not misrepresent for he knows that your ability to judge for yourself will predominate.
