In the January American Magazine is a most unusual article by James Hay, Jr., on-the working habits of the President of the United States an ar ticle that not only has great general interest, but one that should prove itself valuable to business and profes sional workers throughout the coun try. "Making Money Out of Footsteps," by Fred C. Kelly, will show the re tailer how to master the curious, though exact, science of placing his store in the path of the customer. t snows, among other things, how a breeze of wind will cut down cigar profits by thousands of dollars, why the neighborhood of a bank is a poor location for a retailer, why the less crowded side of the street is often better for the seller of various goods and many points that the shrewdest retailers in this country have worked out by commercial mathematics. The book is full of valuable and re liable information and should visit every home. Address the American Magazine, 381 Fourth Ave., New York.
