Champaign, III., Oct. 22. An up-to-date
advertising man In this town
suddenly awakened to the fact that
the winds blew with a little more
than, zephyr force on the corner upon
which stood the store that employed?
him, and that there was always an
interested group of men and occa
sionally a few women watching the
display when slit-skirt and shadow
gowns paraded by.
It gave him an idea. The next day
he got a score of pretty girls to -act
as models Elaborately costumed in
the latest modes, they walked to and
fro around xthe corner, advertisingt
the wares in the store. Needless to'
say,"they-drew.,a cfbwd. Jt was said
that a daintier display of half-hose j
and ralnbow-hued petticoats was
never seen In Paris than on the cor-,
ner where the' ad man made the
breezes play his game.
