Thin men and women who would
like to increase their weight with 10 or
15 pounds of healthy "stay there" fat
should try eating a little Sargol with
tlieir meals for a while and note re
sults. Here is a good test worth try
ing First weigh yourself and measure
yourself. Then take Sargol— one tab
let with every meal—for two weeks.
Th»n weigh and measure again. It isn't
a question of how you look or feel or
What your friends say and think. The
scales and the tape measure will tell
their own story, and most any thin
man or woman can easily add from live
to eight pounds in the first fourteen
days by following this simple direction.
And best of all, the new tiesh stays
Sargol does not of itself make fat,
but mixing with your food, it turns the
fats, sugars and starches of what you
liave eaten, into rich, ripe, fat-produc
ing nourishment for the tissues and
blood—prepares it in an easily assimi
fcited form which the blood can readily
accept. All tills nourishment now
passes from your body as waste. But
Sargol stops th<> waste and does it
quickly" and mnlces the fat-producing
contents of the. very same meals you
are atlng now develop pounds ann
pounds of healthy llcsh between your
skin and hones. Sargol Is safe, pleas
ant. efficient and inexpensive. George
A. (iorgas and other leading druggists
in Harrisburg and vicinity sell It in
large boxes—forty tablets to a pack

Sales Expert Declares Newspaper
"Ad" Is Best Aid
Men Have
Ginger by the handfuls was injected
into the sales force oj the J. H. Troup
Music House, 15 South Market Square,
last night by Martin McCarrick, of
Brooklyn, sales and advertising ex
pert, who is directly in charge of the
big "co-operative piano" sale which
opened to-day in the Troup store.
The Troup salesmen were the guests
of the Troup management at a lunch
eon in the Columbus Hotel and it waa
here that Mr. McCarrick gave his gin
gery talk. Xot that ginger was' the
only spice that McCarrick had at his
command during the evening. Far
from it. McCarrick mixed his ginger
.with hot stuff that made his listeners
■ itch to get out and put into practice
I the selling advice that was handed
The main purpose of McCarrick's
talk was to give an explanation to
the Troup field men the co-operative
sale proposition whereby 300 Francis
Bacon pianos are to be soi<l by the
Troup house within the next'sixtv
days. The Francis Bacon piano, which
ordinarily sells for $350, is to be sold
during the sale for $248.75, and Mc-
Carrick told the Troup salesmen how
and why it could be done with profit
to the salesman, the manufacturer and
the dealer, as well as to the customer.
Small Profits, but Big Sales
"For years," began Mr. McCarrick,
"piano dealers throughout the United
States have believed that they could
make more money by selling fewer in
struments at large profits than many
instruments at small profits. The ut
ter fallacy of this belief is being proved
in scores of cities throughout the
country by the co-operative sales plan,
whereby hundreds of instruments are
sold at small profits which In the end
result in enormous profits In the ag
"But how sell so many pianos in
such a short time? you ask," went on
McCarrick. "We make newspaper
copy sell for us. By judicial use of
newspaper copy, and by Judicial use
I mean wide use, we have been able
to reduce the piano sales cost from
25 and 30 per cent, to less than 3
l>er cent."
McCarrick then told the Troup
salesmen that during the co-operative
sale the Troup house will insert in
H.irrisburg dailies 34,000 lines of aa
vortising copy or 4,600 newspaper
"That bunch of advertising," said
Mr. McCarrick, "would reach from
the Columbus Hotel to the Troup
house, back to this hotel, and back
again to the Troup store.
"Mve ad copy,' he continued, "will
do more to help a salesman seil his
goods than any other one thing in the
universe." The speaker deplored the
habit of piano trade salesmen's trying
to land a customer by treating him to
drinks or cigars.
"Never," shot out the sales expert,
"ought a customer be bought in this
way. If you want to give something
to him wait until the sale is closed.
What the customer wants is not beer
or cigars, but a good square deal, and
that's what he will get under the co
operative sale plan."
McCarrick told the Troup men the
history of the Bacon piano, pointing
out that the Steinways, the Deckers
and the Hazeltons—all big piano men
of to-day and the past—were trained
in the Bacon factories. He said the
Bacon sells for much less than other
pianos of the same grade because of
the enormous numbers of instruments
sold each year through extensive ad
How l'rulits Are Kitten I'p
"Here's the trouble with the piano
business in the United States," said
McCarrick, "the average dealer pays
a salesman a big commission to sell a
piano. Then he allows the salesman
to take old pianos as 'trade-ins'; he
! pays the cost of hauling the new piano
and the 'trade-in': he spends money on
the repairing of the 'trade-in': he pays
1 a salesman a big commission to sell
the 'trade-in' to some other customer?
And where are the profits? Eaten up
in the system of barter and exchange.
Why, there are some piano dealers
; who would take a cow or a flock of
| chickens In trade in order to make a
! sale. That's why there are not 500
j out of 3,000 salesmen in this country
w-ho can lay their hands on $3,000 at
I this minute.
"By the co-operative sale plan we
give the customer a good piano at a
lower price with easy terms. But we
do not take any old pianos or organs
In exchange. When we sell a Francis
Bacon piano at the low price of $248.75
we take nothing but money. We don't
like cows and we haven't coops in
which to keep chickens. That's why
we are able to undersell our competi
tors, and that's why we give the cus
tomer the bargains we offer."
McCarrick told of a campaign in
Pittsburgh where 550 pianos were sold
in thirty days under the plan now be
inc used by Troup. He related his ex
periences In similar sales throughout
the New England Htates and the West,
where thousands of instruments have
been sold.
The luncheon was served before the
talk of the sales expert and it was one
of those sort that make Troup's func
tions for his employes always so
memorable and so delightful.
Those present at the luncheon were
Harry S. Fry, Carlisle; W. H. Slike,
E. W. Knier. D. F. Ommert, Frank
Like, R. H. Tomlinson, Harry Troup,
A. S. Fortenbaugh, New Cumberland;
John O. Mickey, H. G. Miller, Joseph
M. Fry, Carlisle; J. B. Cannon, W. B,
Pcntz, H. S. Bicksler, J. H. Troup,
Mrs. C. S. Troup, Mrs. R. W. Troup,
Therese M. Quimby, Lewis M. Quimby,
Robert W. Troup, Charles S. Troup,
Charlotte S. McCarrick, Martin Mc-
Carrlck, C. L. Shepley, H. B. Fox, Mid
dletown; V. H. Brackenridge.
The Troup salesmen to-day began
to cover the territory within a radius
of fifty miles of Harrisburg to follow
up the newspaper campaign with per
sonal work. They sell their pianos
with a contract carrying a five-year j
guarantee, a money-back-lf-not-satls-i
lied provision, and a clause that can- i
eels further payment if the original
purchaser dies.

last night the various organized Bible
classes In Lykens, Wiconisco and out
lying towns marched to the Nicholson- j
Hemminger Tabernacle, led by the j
United Brethren Band of Lykens. At j
least 1,200 were present, this being j

a sort of lire-escape." "Gold and silver
are not treasures in heaven, but treas
ures in heaven are redeemed souls.".
"The mortgages and bonds of this
world would not be found to be tram

Mothers Tell of
Experience is or should be our best
teacher. Women who have obeyed the
highest and noblest of all sacrifices, tho
struggle for the life of others, should
have a better Idea of helpful Influence
than those who theorize from observation.
At any rate when a prospective grand
mother urges her daughter to do as sho
did—to use "Mother's Friend," there Is
reason to believe It the right ndvlce.
"Mother's Friend" is an external ap
i plication for expectant mothers. It 3 pur
| pose Is to furnish pliancy to tho muscles,
I to take away the strain on the cords and
i ligaments, to relieve the tension of nerves
j and tendons so apt to provoke or a.T
--1 gravate nausea, morning sickness, twitcli-
Ings of the limbs and so on.
Although. In the nature of things, a
woman would use "Mother's Friend" but
but rarely, yet so effective has it been
found that this splendid remedy Is on sale
In most drug stores throughout the
United States. Tt has been prepared by
liradfleld Regulator Co., 406 I.atnar Rldg.,
Atlanta, Qa., and advertised by us for
eversforty years. This Is a fine record
for such a special remedy and the grate
ful letters received to-day are Just as
appreciative as were those of years ago
notwithstanding that methods are sup
' posed to have greatly advanced. Ask at
| the drug store for a bottle of "Mather's
I Friend." It 1« worth while.
