CHARLES TOWN, - WEST VA. flarkin0 Back a Jew Centuries Back near the beginning of things, our prehistoric forebearers would have perished from the earth if they had not understood the science of reading advertising. The cavemen didn't know much about underwear, soap, or automobiles, but they did have to eat. The one who could follow the tracks of the game he hunted, or read the meaning of a twisted leaf or broken twig, off in life. Then as now, the most consistent reader of adver- rising was best dressed, best fed and most contented. There has been somewhat of an evolution in adver- rising in the last few thousand years, but the principle is just the same. The consistent reader of advertisements is invari. ably best informed on what to eat and where to get it; what to wear and how much to pay for it; what to do ud how to do it. He's up on the most important things of hfe. Consequently he gets the most from life. Throughout the ages, advertising has done much to make life Hvable and pleasant. We owe it much. In the new, re-designed, improved Separator every high speed point has high-grade ball bearings, and ONLY the New McCormick-DeeHng is so equipped. It takes much of the work out of the morning and evening separating. No wonder it makes a hit with .evmT man and woman who sees it and turns it. And that's only the start. The New McCormick- Deering has many other points of improvement. It is setting new records in clean skimming. Drop in here and see something really modelm in separators.
