Wooden nutmegs and sanded suj^ar ·'were perhaps extreme cases of the prevalent merchandising methods but any well-trained housewife felt it her duty to subject the things she bought to a critical inspection. She sniffed and nibbled at foodstuffs; tapped silver ware to see if it rang true; examined woolens and silks with suspicion. With so many fraudulent articles on the market one could never be sure. Why is it that women -- - and men--do their buying today with a calm confidence?, What has become of the shams?, The simple fact is that advertising has made it difficult for dishonest, goods to live. People buy advertised products and know that they will be as represented. Their makers and distributors have put themselves on record. When you use the adveri ising columns as a buying directory, and ask for advertised goods by name, you are assured of your money's worth. The advertisements are your guide to sound values.
