Kodak, For Instance
The policy of any store is a matter of importance to every
customer of that store. Some retailers buy always in the
cheapest market. Our policy is to buy rather in the depend?
able market, to stock goods that we can hand with confidence
to our customers. For instance: In the photographic line
we cleave to the Kodak goods, because we arc sure they arc
right. Take the
Folding Pocket Kodaks
They arc now and for years have been the leaders in the hand camera field.
Kodak simplified photography ami the folding Pockets simplified the Kodak. They
stand for all that is best and simplest in picture making, $10 to $20.

in Tea and Coffee
Some coffee grown in Mexico, some in Puerto
Rico, and a great deal more in Brazil. It doesn't
make so ftiul h difference where it's grown as how
it's cultivated and what kind of coffee it makes.
The same with tea. It docs'nt have to he grown
