Behold the stranger
A STRANGER moves to your neighborhood. You ob-
serve him tolerantly, but with no immediate display of
interest. You are an established resident, getting
along very nicely before he came.
But you do not avoid. For reasons not entirely un-
selfish you wait for him to reveal himself. Possibly he
may add something to your social and business life.
Possibly he will take a Highly respected place in the
community. He may even become one of your inti-
mates. It is up to him.
So j;ou note his manners, talk with him, and form
an opinion. If he comes up to your requirements, you
accept him, and often he proves a welcome addition to
your group of friends.
It is with exactly the same attitude that the intelli-
gent newspaper reader regards the advertisements of
products new to him. These strangers may add sorne-

ways they may prove valuable. Certainly it is wise to
give them careful consideration.
Read the advertisements in the daily newspapers.
They may be the means of introducing you to products
that will take important places in your life. And
every day they will give you information that enables
