This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: ... feature man of unusual discrimination. J..Maxwell Prlngle, Jr., at 977 Eighth avenue, gives one window to the "Turkish Hair Promoter" made by a company of the same name. No address of said company appears on bottle labels. Inquiry reveals It is really an "own make." Why Turkish? But never mind. This disguising of an "own make" may be useful, but its expediency Is problematical. The display Itself consists of rising tiers of the containing bottles with the yellow labels. More labels are pasted to the window glass in a row. Show cards state, "Special Introductory sale, at 50c" MECHANICAL DEVICE. The other Prlngle window contains a mechanical feature, ever dear to American crowds. Here appears an electric brush. Front center Is a clock-work device holding one of the brushes, bristles downward. Right under the brush Is held a wooden case containing twenty-four small compasses In rows. The machinery moves the brush over the compasses and back in an arch and the needles move more or less with the brush. Certainly they move. A sign on the end of the brush handle shows a female figure, supposedly Electricity herself, and a notice reading, "The electricity in the brush moves the compasses." Regular prices of goods, $1.00, $1.50, $2.00, $2.50 and $3.00. Special sale prices, 97c, $1.44, $1.93, $2.41 and $2.89. ANALYTICAL POINTS. The Hegeman Corporation, 200 Broadway, follows its usual window idea of one thing at a time. The window is filled, but not to overflowing, with a codllver oil preparation. Cartons, bottles and cartons. A large sign holds the center of the stage with this incendiary proclamation: "Does it pay to deceive the public? Decidedly not. There Is no easier way of deceiving more
