In the days that are ahead, the enterprising business man will no doubt have his air machine. When he
wants to interview an out-of-town customer, a few
minutes' glide through the air will bring him and his
man together.
Meantime, he has to be content with something
short of that. Se finds that most efficient substitute in
the Long Distance Telephone. This brings him voice-
to-voice with his customer, and gives all that is necessary of the personal touch. ,

Standing, sitting and walking correctly
are the first essentials to good health
and that elusive charm we call style
A LL women wish to be well; but all women
IA do not appreciate the vital importance
X A.of correct corsetry as an essential to
good health. The well-known medical
authority, Alice S. Cutler, M.D., warns us:
"As a physician who knows that if it were
not for ill-fitting and the wrong kind of
corsets we would have very few female in
valids, I am naturally determined to do
everything in my power to educate women
in thc proper fitting of corsets. Most
learned physicians now recognize the modern
corset as a hygienically healthful garment
and one that is often the best means of providing corrective support for many bodily
The Original-Unequalled Front Lacing Corsets
have attained their unquestioned superiority
by assisting nature to perfect expression.
Every Gossard is hygienically correct. Properly fitted to the figure for which it was
designed it will give scientific support to
abdominal and back muscles, with no chance
of undue pressure at the waistline; the organs
of nutrition will be free from pressure; the
erect posture which is induced will encourage
deep breathing and the diaphragmatic mus
cles become strong with use. A woman so
corseted will have the undeniable beauty of
health and that grace of body, standing,
sitting, or walking, which is best expressed
in thc one word, style.
We unreservedly recommend Gossard Corsets
as the complete expression of modem corsetry.
Our highly specialized corset service is maintained with a full appreciation of the exacting
needs of the modern, active woman.
