Dear Sir: Will you please per
mit the following from one of your
old advertising patrons? There
has recently heeri opened a depart
ment store in this city that has at
tracted a great deal of attention by
the system on which it does busi
ness, mere are a great many
things the people should consider
in patronizing an establishment of
that kind. First5 the old established
houses, here have been here for
years and grown up with the town,
and have extended credit to a great
majority of their customers, and
still do so. A great many of our
customers say that the Department
store sells goods cheaper, which
may be true, but we credit them
