Wanamaker began his business life as a clerk in a small dry goods store. By thrift and economy he was able to save a part of his earnings. In 1861 he started in business with his brother-in-law with a combined capital of $3,500. The first thing he did was to hire the best sales man in town at a salary of $1,300 a year -nearly a third of his entire capital. His next step was to spend the entire receipts of the first day's sales for an advertise ment for the next day's business. These are radical methods but, combined with Mr. Wanamaker's personality, have won for him great success. It is said of his early business life that many of his customers were country folk, whose trade and friendship he vained very highly. It was his custom to fill his pockets with chestnuts, and slipping some of them into the hands of his cus tomers, he would take them about the store, munching chestnuts as they went. Mr. Wanamaker is now one of the great est of American merchants. A few years ago he moved into a building built espe cially for him. It is fifteen stories high. covers three acres and has 1,750,000 square feet of floor space. 3 0 Paid on Time Certificates of Deposit o Paid on Savings accounts $1.00 Starts an account ý JýI AOII A Card to Owners of Rural Telephone Lines We are anxious to see that all lines owned by other parties and connected with us are kept in such condition as to furnish efficient service. Where the owners of rural lines are responsible for their upkeep, we want to co-operate with them. All lines require a thorough overeauling occa 8lonslty if the best service is to be obtained. We recommend that every line connected with as be overhauled at least once a year, and that at least one experienced telephone man assist in this work. The cost of this work when divided among all the patrons of the line, makes the amount paid by each man small, and this cost will be more than offset by the improved service. If the owners of rural telephone lines in this sec tion are experiencing trouble with their service, we will appreciate their talking the matter over with our Manager or writing us fully. We will gladly do what we can toward helping you improve the con dttion of your line. CUMBERLAND TELEPHONE & TELEGRAPH COMPANY BOX 263, LA FAYETTE, LOUISIANA.

For this faro. ous old secret blend cannot be arm.y imitated: And if you pay more than the price of "French Market" for coffee, it is utter waste. The blend of coffees that produce that, rich, aromatic flavor peculiar to the genuine French Market Coffee is a secret of the French Market Mills. Even if the right blend were known, it would be impcssible to reproduce the old time French Market slow roast and grinding process only obtainable by the splendid machinery of the French Market Mills. Nowhere else could the French Market process of packing coffee, uztouched by human hands, in perfectly sealed cans be reproduced. If the leading coffe experts in the world canot pick out the best coffees until they are roasted and served in the cup, how can you, Madam afford to buy coffee in bulk? Let this coffee tell its own story, Serve French Market Coffee at every meat for several day Be convinced by actual test that it is the best.
