Mr*. Blougb was In the parlor near the window. Plough knew she was listening and wanted to tease her. "Had a little experience today," he said to Neighbors confidentially. "Prettiest little girl you ever saw. She was sauntering along the street some feet behind a strolling couple. I was walking faster, and as 1 caught up with her 1 couldn't help looking at her, she was so pretty. She caught ray look and smiled. 1 had no Intention of flirting, of course, but that smile was irresistible. Then our hands touched accidentally, and we let them linger a minute. She began walking faster to keep up with me, and we passed the couple ahead together. When we got some distance ahead of them I mustered up nerve enough to speak. 'Good evening,' 1 said, and she replied the same very roguishly.'' There was a swffsli of skirts In the parlor, and Rlough turned In time to see his wife vanishing toward the hall.

If you were a merchant, wouldn't you rather sell a thousand yards of silk in a day, at a profit of 10c a yard, than to sell (without advertis ing) fifty yards, at a profit of 25c a yard? Isn't it plain that in all such instances the buyer gets the benefit of the "volume of business" which advertising enables the merchant to do? The money cost of a jour ney-long or short-by stage coach (not to count time or comfort) was greater than that of a present day journey by railway. The "old ways" o f do ing things were not even CHEAPER. The cost of things in an old-fashioned store nowadays is greater than the progres sive stores—the advertised stores. It's not even CHEAP ER to patronize the non-pro gressive merchant—not to count the unwisdom of help ing make it possible for reac tionary and non-progressive merchants to still "do busi ness."
