for Your Work and Supplies DANCE Under Auspices of' Women of Mooseheart Legion AT MOOSE HALL Wednesday, January 26 Admission .. Gentlemen, One Dollar AN OUNCE OF “KNOW” IS WORTH A TON OF “GUESS!” Store ads are INFORMATIVE. They throw a full light on a majority of your buying problems—making it pos sible for you to secure the best possible VALUES at right prices. Just as the stories in the news columns inform you as to the world's happenings, so do the store ads keep you posted on buying opportunities. We often ignore the MONEY VALUE of simple FACTS. To do this in connec tion with buying is to substitute "guess ing" for KNOWLEDGE. And that is a form of "substitution" which costs heavily. It is quite possible that SINGLE FACTS stated in some of the ads of today may have a rash value to you of one dollat each. That is not mere "advertising talk." Test it by studying the offerings made. Industrial, manufacturing, economic, and retailing conditions nowadays are undergoing rapid changes. To keep in touch with every phase of this business conflict., so far as it affects your own pocketbook, study the ads with the defin ite purpose of KNOWING WHAT’S WIIAT IN THE BUYING PROBLEM.
