merchantsthe men who do the
business in their lines of trade

entire front of the store They
called into use whole pages of the
papers thus proclaiming from the
chimney tops and throughout theI
whole section what great things are
in store for the people Frankel
Anderson Co Bassett and others
are on to all the advertising dodges
and in plain English who are the
leading business men those who ad
vertise or those who do not
