Merchandise Sold Under a
Money Back Guarantee Must
Possess Real Merit.
Money talks. The housewife should
listen only to the claims of manufacturers who
back their assertions with a money back guar guarantee.
antee. guarantee. I have found in my years of Domestic
Science work that manufacturers of meritorious
products employ the money-back-if-not-satisfied
policy of merchandising. Such manufacturers are deserving of
the housewives' patronage and usually get it.
No matter how good a manufacturer
may say his product is if he lacks courage
to offer a refund of purchase price,-if buyer is not satisfied he
displays a lack of faith in his goods. In such instances the
purchaser assumes all risk and there is always risk, when the
maker of merchandise refuses to stand by his goods with a
money back guarantee.
To make this point clear consider
the advertising of a certain brand of baking
powder. The producers of this baking powder abolish the
uncertainty of buyers getting full money's worth as every
can is sold under a clear cut guarantee of money-back-if-not-satisfied
with bake day results.'
Their advertisements state that their
product is superior they say that it is unfailing
in results pure in the can and in the food and that it pro produces
duces produces absolutely pure and wholesome bakings. Furthermore
they assert that "You save when -you buy it and you save
when you use it." The phrase is so familiar to the housewife,
every one no doubt will recognize it as taken from a Calumet
Baking Powder advertisement. But to get back to my subject
, the importance of those printed words lies in the fact that
the Calumet Baking Powder Co. put the proof before the
housewife with positive bake day results. They invite her to
buy Calumet on a money back trial basis. They demonstrate
dependability tvitk bake day results. They show her actual
savings in real money. I have tested Calumet Baking Powder.
The tests I conducted were far more exacting than could be be-made
made be-made by the housewife and those tests have proved the truth truth-of
of truth-of the Calumet Baking Powder Co.'s contentions, fim house housewife
wife housewife can afford to refuse so liberal a proposition. Al should
give Calumet a trial and millions have done so. That it
makes good its advertised promises is shown in the fact that
housewives who put it to a test continue to use it.

Oh, Christmas is a happy time,
When human hearts are light
And human hate has vanished
And all the world looks bright!
And Christmas is a solemn time,
For back long, long ago,

The joy that we now know.

IN a few years of lyceum and Chautauqua work Mr. and Mrs. Hollls Edison
Davenny and the capable company of musicians which they head have won
an enviable reputation. This Is due no less to the musical abilities of the
members of the company than to their whole-hearted endeavor to meet every
requirement of their audiences. It was of this company that Miss Ida M. Tar Tar-bell

tet quintet of young people whose business it was to sing for three-quarters of an hour
before my afternoon lecture proved to be the gayest, kindest, healthiest of
?ompanions. They were hard workers, seriously interested in pleasing their
audiences.' Here was a group of five young people who were doing what to
me was very unusual in a thoroughly professional way." Heard either in
