here last fall art entire stranger
to our people- By close attention
to business, ami above all, by
fair and honetst dealing with his
customers he soon won the con-

has done a larger business than
it had done for years before.

The clipping below shows the
inevitable consequence of trying
to do business this day and age
without advertising. What hap -
pened in Mangum will happen in
Lone Wolf or any other town
where such a policy is persist-
ently followed by any one trying

many debts and not enough of
the right kind of business to
make ends meet. This man’s

has he experienced anything
different from oihers the world
over who have tried running
their business without publicity
and without announcing through
