the Tobacco Manufacturing business in America.

The First Union Made TobaccoClark & Scott manufactured the first Union Made Tobacco in Pennsylvania and today "Scott's Best" is as thoroughly union as it is uniformly good.
The factory is up-to-date in every respect. THe sanitary conditions are all that could be desired. Modern machinery is in use in every department and the latest improved methods of manufacturing good tobacco are employed. All things combine to make "Scott's Best" a sweet, fragrant tobacco for smoking and chewing.

Security Red Stamps are CASH STAMPS. -- They are also Merchandise and Premium Stamps
The difference between RED stamps and the ordinary garden variety of trading stamps is so marked that once a dealer or a stamp collector knows about it, he or she would never go back to the old way.
We would not go back to giving PREMIUMS only, if we could, and we could not because the people are too well pleased with our plan, whereby we spend our money right here at home.
The old idea about stamps was to make the collector save as long as you could, say until she had filled five or ten books. Our idea is to hasten returns by letting the collector CASH in as few as THIRTY RED STAMPS -- for a nickel in goods of dealer or a nickel in cash of us. Full New Red Stamp Books will buy you $2.50 worth at the Dealers, or you can get a clean fresh $2 bill from us. We have paid out to merchants in this vicinity, close to $25,000 in the last few months, instead of sending this money to Grand Rapids or Hawaii. We still have beautiful Premiums in our Parlor but it is for you to say what you want, Premiums, Goods, or Cash.
Red Stamps only cost the dealer 3¢ for each ten stamps -- the number he would pay you if you spent one dollar with him. Any reputable merchant will spend that to hold your trade. Red Stamps are better for the consumer than the Merchant's own register checks or coupons, because you're sure that Red Stamps will be redeemed AT ONCE -- no waiting, no red tape, and no juggling. Red Stamps are at the risk of no single merchant business but are backed by a $300,000 capital. Besides you can make your Red Stamps count faster by getting them with EVERYTHING YOU BUY.
Many years ago I saw that Scranton was the kind of a town I'd like to tie up to and decided that when I had firmly established my Wilkes-Barre store I would branch out by locating a big store in the Electric City.
I have been disappointed -- pleasantly. I had hoped to grow at a Scranton pace. I have grown even at a greater pace. Scrantonians have responded in a most gratifying way to my efforts to serve them.
The Dollar Hat proposition was looked upon with some misgiving at first. The people were a bit slow to appreciate the fact that if the dollar hat wasn't a good proposition I couldn't afford to lease a big store, install a raft of expensive fixtures and engage a large force of salespeople to launch it.
Gradually the misgivings and doubts were dissipated, business began to increase and inside of a year the Shepard Dollar Hat was accepted as a Scranton institution.
I have had such success in Scranton that I hace added a $1.50 Hat and named it after the city -- The Electric City Hat at $1.50 is as well known and thought of as our Dollar Hat. On the occasion of the City's Fiftieth Anniversary I wish to extend to the people of Scranton my heartiest felicitations and my sincerest wishes for a future full of happiness.

Having devoted thirty-one years of my life to the study of interior decoration and traveled over a good part of the world, thereby gaining a knowledge which is valuable to any customer who wishes to get the best and latest productions for their own furnishings.
My goods are unexcelled for their decorative quality and traditional value.
I have always and still will adhere to a standard of perfection, which has proven that true merit and consistent prices are always rewarded by permanent and lasting success.
No reliance can be placed on the general appearance of goods. I have never been tempted by competition to sacrifice quality to price, knowing that the triumph of depreciable goods is only temporary.
