The comic advertisement on the left tells the story of a couple preparing for a dinner party. When the husband forgets to buy flowers and the wife forgets to buy Old Golds for their dinner guests, the couple argues into the night about how each was an embarrassment. The comic on the right also depicts the joys of married life, as the wife recommends to her husband that he switch to Old Golds to quit his coughing. He refuses to take her advice, but takes the advice of a friend’s wife to do the same. Later, he admits that Old Golds are “great,” and his wife is upset that he didn’t take her advice when she gave it. The comics, part of a small book, were illustrated by Clare A. Briggs (1875-1930).
