"I'lacing my men ietr tho window,"
he said, "so they can work in view of

that catches the attention of the passer

"Manufacturers of all kinds of goods
have adopted this plan. Waistmaker"s
put their most skilled workers on exhi- 1
bition to show how the finest garments
'are cut and sewed. Cigar mnanufactur
ers take the public into their conildence
and let them see the process of rolling
as performed by the cleverest hands.
Men who deal in nechanical contriv
inces have found that it pays to havo
at least one m achine set up near a win
dow so the crowd outside may observe a
the intrieacy of its parts and the rapid
ity of its action. Jewelers have station
ed their most expert latpidaries within v
view of the street that possible custom
ers may see how precious stones are
cut and polished and set.
