Seed ads should have color! Focus first on the upper right, with the glorious bundle of flowers, then on the lower left where the gardener (more like a farmer, really, with that much land) is working hard. Then the big juicy melon at lower right. Finally you read the tombstone with the pitch: you have only one chance a season, so use the trusted varieties that we've concentrated on over our sixty years of experience -- that's two errors in one sentence. Published in the February, 1920 issue of the PEOPLE'S HOME JOURNAL.
