Our plan for providing up-to-date cuts for studio advertising at cost, has been a big success from the start. In almost every instance, those who purchased the first cut issued have ordered each succeeding one, and we have received many letters commending the plan.

Fall business is just commencing and a judicious use of newspaper space cannot help but bring you good returns.

Slick up the studio, re-dress the show case, do the best work you possibly can - and advertise there is the combination for business bringing that must succeed. To make a studio succeed you have to do more than play a waiting game. True enough, a certain percentage of patrons will convince themselves that they need photographs, but people in this frame of mind are just as apt to stop at the studio down the street as they are to come to yours.

On the other hand, if the people are convinced by your advertising that they need pictures, your studio is uppermost in their mind when the time comes, and they will pass the displays of your competitors without a thought, except perhaps to make sure that they are headed right to reach you.

Our series of cuts have been planned to help you bring your business guns to bear on every member of the family from baby to grandpa. We will try our best to provide cuts particularly pertinent to each season.

Also remember that if you have not purchased any of the cuts, you may obtain the full series that has been issued, provided, of course, that no other photographer in your city has already ordered them.

Send in your order to-day and plan to develop your fall and holiday business.
