At the time our union station was

were promptly jumped on us. Exper Experience
ience Experience of two years proved that our
criticism was correct. The "' waiting
room is pleasant enough on a warm
day or night, but in cold weather it is
not as warm as a well built barn.
With an ordinary-sized fireplace at
one end of the room and doors con constantly
stantly constantly opening and shutting, it is
impossible to keep the place even
moderately comfortable in chilly
weather We were at the station this
morning before daylight, found four
men huddled around" the remnants of
a fire, which just about kept their
noses and toes warm, and all the rest
of the room 'uncomfortably cool to' all
not well wrapped up. It would be a
miserable place for women-and chil children

doesn't "the railroad administration

A man who may He called JoEn Jones', Hecaiise that wasn't his name, made
mighty good kws for a certain type of farmer.
The plow had hcen invented hy John's grandfather, who supplied hb near neighbors, manufac manufacturing
turing manufacturing the Implement in a crude, homely way.
John's father had put up a little more modern factory and from it turned out plows enough to
supply the farmers of several counties in the immediate vicinity.
Vhen the business came into his hands, John determined that it should be a monument to father
and grandfather and something he could hand down to his children with pride.
Things went well for a time, but after a while the farmers of the part olF the country in which
Jones' plows had been sold were forced to change their methods and grow other crops than those
in cultivating which these implements were useful.
'At first John was pretty badly discouraged by this turn in his affairs, but he soon made up his mind
there was a way out and wrote to the publisher of his favorite farm paper for advice. The reply
advised Jones to go to see the Brown and Smith Advertising Agency, in a not far-distant city.
John Jones never had advertised and knew nothing of advertising agencies, but he went to see the
Brown and Smith people. They found out farming conditions stiUvere favorable to the use xf
Jones' plows, helped John to get dealer agents in that territory and prepared advertisements for
the farm journals and newspapers which covered it.
That was only a few years ago, but now John Jones is making and selling more plows in a week
than his father did in a month or his grandfather in a year. And advertising has so reduced his
selling costs that even in times of high-priced materials and labor he has been able to lower prices
without cutting down his legitimate manufacturing profit. v
