OF YOUR LIFE BOUGHT BY SOMEONE ELSE?
this A fiRRAT PROBLEM FOR YOU TO CONSIDER. If
your time IS bought like so many pounds of sugar why is it? Why does
another man bur you ? Because he makes money buying you. He makes a
profit out of your time.
Why shouldn't you hove that profit ? Why should your life be spent in making money for
someone else ? I offer you the opportunity today of using all your time for yourself all the profits of
' your labor to go to youyou to be your own boss independent in your own business.
Most men have considered going into business for themselves but they have been face to face with
They didn't want to give up a good paying position. They didn't have enough capital. These
two difficulties keep many energetic men from going into business for themselves.
I WILL START YOU IN BUSINESS. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DEVQTE
YOUR ENTIRE TIME TO IT. I WILL FURNISH THE CAPITAL.
I do not ask you to give up your present position at the start. I want to prove to you
first that I am sincere. I want to show you that I mean business. You can start in business for yourself
on my proposition and carry on this business in connection with your other work and make a profit of
from $50 to 9100 a month in addition to what you arc making now and I do not ask you to Invest
one cent. It doesn't make any difference whether you live in town or in the country. .
Doctors, Lawyers, Merchants, Farmers and Managers of large business enterprises have taken ad
vantage of the very offer that I am making you today and they ore now in business fpr themselves. They
are independent business men, cither devoting part of their time or all of their time to the business in
which I have started them. I offer you this same opportunity. If you want to go into business now just

fits. I will furnish all of tho capital and all that I want to do is to turn out the clothes. You

It Is absolutely necessary for me to sell the output of my establishment and I
