You Can't Tell
How Far a Frog Can Jump, '
By Looking at Him
Is an expression that is not very elegant but you
can't. And it applies well to grocery trading. By
looking at prices quoted you can't tell how much
you are getting for your money how far your
dollar will go, unless you have the assurance that
the quality is the best. Low prices on cheap, in
ferior groceries do not mean anything to the
housewife, who is abiq to recognize a bargain, but
prices such as SHIELDS is quoting, on the best
grades of goods the market atfords, interest eco
nomical housewives and their pocketbooks great
ly. "Low Price" quotations on "high-quality"
goods is making this busy store busier every day.
