Press Clippings m Who Pays the Freight? We have often heard the fool ish argument advanced that by patronizing merchant! who tulvcr Use you must help pay the big ad vertising bills. As a toil We bought 10- worth of Hrar.ll nuts Friday at a store which was novcr known to advertise and then bought 10? worth at the New York Racket Our first purlm-: resulted In 11 nuta and the sosond In 10, TliQ proportion of bad ones wan the ame. We celcsted Brazil nuts be- cause they arc. a staple and cost one merchant as much as another. Now, who pays the freight? If a non-advertiser savc3 h's adver tising bill he ought to g'vo his customers tho benefit, but there la no benefit, except that you can usually get waited on more prompt ly at thenonadverthlng etorothan nt the other. You might as well carry the proposition further and not patronize um?rchant who ' hue to pay rent cr wears good clothing If advertising did not pay the merchants, we'd bo in n mighty poor bualnoss.
