Merchants who feel tho st ralu of tho Christinas holiday rush, anl the

stder the advantage of beginning curly to advortise holiday goods:
Trade follows the advertising. Where morchants don't tell the peoplr
about their holiday stock until December is well under way, tho public doc
not realize that holiday goods are in and make no special effort to bunt for gift.
All tho stores aro today carrying goods suited In every way for holiday
trade. Au early tradeeao.be created by the simple expedient of telling the
public what they can do at this stage of the season.
To tho outsider at least, It would seem as if the merchants would Ilk
this trade distributed over as many weeks as possible. In that way they can
avoid hiring extra help, and tho public will bo better satisfied if it avoids
lusty buying, Regular advertising promotes and establishes this regular
current of business. &- ,. ,,
