Paul Bell had a hold of one. He couldn't figure the right amount on a number of pounds of brass In which tens and a decimal played a part. He wrote down the exact numerals, didn't have it right, and knew it wasn't right The stubborn thing would not clear for him. Deliberating a long time he grabbed the paper and hurried to the back room and asked. "How come this brass only figures to $.85." It wasn't $.85. but $8.50. and all is well. » * * In speaking or IienHnR of fillinc; stations the thought automatically refers to autoriobiles and gasoline.

At night, even now the streets are lined with automobiles. Each car has people in it or did have when it parked. Why not show them your wares. Money for glass, reflectors, light bulbs, merchandise, backgrounds, labor, etc., is wantonly spent. Why not get something j out of it and leave your window a show place. Don't have a dead store.
