One of the most important things in
running a nowspuper is to know whut
to publish and whut not to publish.
It is generally harder to keep certain
"things" outofupuperthun it is to get
"tilings" to ti 1 1 up. It is not so much
in knowing what to put in as it is in
knowing what to keep out. We do
not begin to publish all wo know -if we
d.id we'd have to start a private ceme

About "Hard Times" unless
you want to save money, and
if you want to save money,
be careful with your expen
ditures. It pays to look be
fore you leap and to investi
gate before you buy. If I did
not know that my prices
would stand your investiga
tion I certainly would not ask
you to investigate.
Come and get my prices.
They tell their own story.

It would be foolish for me to ask you to my store
unless I know that my prices are right, and the reason you
do not come is because you do not know. Of course you
are perfectly honest in your opinion, and an honest mistake
is the greatest mistake in the world and he hardest to over
come. What I want is to convince you. Make out your
bill and come and get my prices. If you will do this you'll
find some of the leaks that make hard times harder and I
may help you to save many dollars. Let's talk it over.
