HAMILTON Manager of Wanamaker's, Philadelphia Every little three-line item you read has turned the wheels of some great factory. Every time you see a cut price the number of >flray hairs in the world has been increased. Many an advertisement is planned a year before it ever finds its way into print. One advertisement in Philadelphia a few years ^go opened up the copper mines in Colorado six months before it ever appeared. A thousand miners began digging cop- per on a contract of brass beds that were going to be made that were going to be advertised. 9 You see perhaps some piece of muslin wear advertised here whose trimming is pretty, or some gown whose design is elegant. The chances are that a hundred styles were discarded or changed to get this one for you. And all the while the buyer ...

But when you see a cut price on a diamoml%r a dining chair or any other staple article less responsible for its sale to style, you are apt to question the legitimacy of that sale. Therefore the following facts, which will be A, B, C to even buyer and merchant, will probably be interesting news to you.
