And yet, in any business under the sun, what amounts to such a policy of insurance is embraced in an intelligent advertising campaign. No advertising campaign that was well devised and carried out with unflinching persistence ever failed to furnish actual "Pro fit Insurance" for a business. The cost of this sort of insurance for a store or other enterprise is not "beyond your means,"—un less you are one of the folks who ought not to be in business at all, WHICH YOU ARE NOT! This eost is partially payable in eash, of eourse, but only par tially. A large part of it is payable in INTELLI GENCE, in the capacity of profit by experience, in what is generally known as "grey matter." This does not moan tliat. you must "worry." It means that you must THINK—that you must plan and execute. You can make your advertising cam paign your "Policy of Profit Insurance"
