Did You Ever Stop to Think?
THAT newspapers take a big part in the budding of a
city. Without their aid no community could stay in the
March of progress.
THAT home newspapers are the "flags of progress.”
They are always working for the public good,
yet seldom getting the credit they deserve.
THAT when movements are started which mean a bet-
ter, busier city, it’s the newspapers that take the leaden
helping them to the road of success.
THAT newspapers are business institutions the same as
any other business. They have something to sell.
THAT they have newspapers and space to sell and can
no more afford to give them away than a merchant can
afford to give his stock away.

here we are again
When the business card of a stranger is sent
into a man’s office he generally inquires,
“Who is he?” or ‘‘What does he want?”
That is a human quality. Regardless of the
merchandise a man sells we want to know
something about him. His policies. His
methods. Now we’re going to broadcast a
little about ourselves.
We learned long ago that the soundest way
to build a business was to sell dependable
merchandise. People want to buy happi-
ness. They want to buy something that will
serve them pleasurably. Certainly not trou-
ble and irritations. Our business axiom is:
Sell motoring happiness.
And everything in our store, from Goodrich
Silvertowns to spark plugs, is so depend-
able in quality that satisfaction is inevitable.
You are bound to be pleased by the service
and the prices.

Why Not Plenty of Shade?
Many a Texas city, now bar-
ren of shade trees, if it had
taken throught in time, could
have had beautifully shaded
sidewalks and parks simply by
preserving the best of the trees.
And who could have denied the
beauty of a city thus shaded?
