however, came very slowly the first
few weeks. In the rush of moving the
business men gave very little atten

It was not long before the proprietor
of the stand began to feel uneasy and
set about devising some scheme for
stimulating trade. One morning about
four weeks after the building bad been
open every man In the building re
ceived a visit from the cigar stand
proprietor, who carried around with
bum several boxes of cigars and a grip
full of cigarettes. Every smoker was
made a present of bis favorite smoke.
With bis entrance Into an office the
! enterprising dealer introduced nimseii.

politely intimated that be would be
glad to cater to him in future.
His outlay for tbe free smokes
amounted to over ?2T. but it paid la
returns a thousand per cent. Practi
