Nor do Northern agencies now soliciting - Florida business through special representatives pay any taxes in this State or oth erwise contribute to-its upbuilding. The Liberty Loan and other -war-work subscriptions they make are credited to the home states of these agencies. . More efficient and sympathetic service can be secured by b lori da advertisers from a Florida agency than through one located in some distant city. Moreover, in most instances, Florida advertis ers can save money by placing their Northern advertising through a -home agency. The offer made below shows conclusively how it pays to do business with a Florida advertising agency. Pay Us Ten Per Cent less Than Out-of-the-State Agencies To commercial bodies, rated hotels and others interested in ad vertising for tourists or winter residents :. Secure the best proposition you can from the special represen tative of any Northern agency now operating in Florida. x Get the representative to quote you definitely on given number of inches and specified number of insertions in Northern newspapers. "We will undertake to place your advertising in the same pa pers and same space and the same number of times for ten per cent. l0SS All propositions from-the Northern agencies must be made to you by their representatives in writing by the representatives of oth er agencies and to supply each advertiser proof that all insertions are made as agreed. ' ' ; . . We are able to offer you this money-saving proposition, which gives the benefits of publishers' lowest rates, because we deal direct with the newspapers and magazines and do not have to add any profit for special representatives. ;. If you want to have your advertising for the winter both, effi cient and economical, this proposition will appeal to you. For fur-, ther particulars call, on or write either of our offices. We are ready to serve you and to save yoU money." . The Thomas Advertising Service "Advertising Headquarters of the Southeast" 220-222 Heard National Bank Jacksonville. Bell.Phone 6160.
