Or sell Cloverine salve that came wrapped in a tube of 12 and covered with 12 rolled up pictures of a bowl of fuit. A can of the Salve and a picture was only 15 cents. The Cloverine was nothing more than Petroleum jelly that smelled better than Vaseline. Rosebud Salve was the same thing only red and smelled like roses, but no pictures came with those purchases.By the time I get done with xmas I may have to revive my old Grit magazine route.
Grit was not a magazine, but a weekly Newspaper out of Williamsport Pennsylvania. The selling point was that one could get their Sunday comic strips on Thursday.
