In this you are eminently correct.
It is Important then thai you set the
good example. Don't send away for
a single article thut any feilow mer-

would be wrong for you to stud off
to another city for printing when
thousands of dollars are invested in
printing plants In McKluney. When
a traveling agent conies along ask-
ing for your Job printing remind
him that you have Hrsi-class print-

a custom for many of these fellows
to rffer a "br.rgain" ou small order*
of ordinary printing as a catch to
rob you on some other ' special job."

LETTER TO Win. KERR.
Dear Sir: Mr. Frank Robinson,
j Tltusvllle, Pa., bought Devoe with n
, good deal of feeling against the
whole tribe of mixed paints. Our
J agents there, Messrs. Kernochan &
i Co., got him to do It. He says:
"I am more than pleased with the
Job. I had one-third of the paint
left-over: I know of several other
Jobs, a year old or more, painted
with Devoe, that are wearing well."
\\ hat a pity we have to all go
through the same school to find out
what paint to put on a house! Ex-
perience teaches . Isn't there any
easier way to learn? Yours truly,
