This is a Bcrious question,
one at which some folks take
offense, yet salesmen are under
tho necessity of asking it.
Somo folks deal near home,
settle infrequently, never in
vestigate) to sec whether they
pay more than they should and.
too otton allow their accounts to
go long over due. If you don't
care what the family expenses
are it's a poor way to do if you
want to leave your children in
atlluent circumstances when
you aro gone. Now it is quite
an advantago to have an open
account at a well-known house,
who can execute your order
promptly. Often persons say
they don't want an account and
will pay in a few days. But
we cannot keep memoranda of
charges; it isn't safe or good
business. Tho stock found in
ordinary stores is usually stale,
uninviting and inferior, while
tho stock in our store is turned
so frequently and so carefully
watched that it is at all times
fresh. Our stock in trade con
sists of the luxuries and deli
cacies from every civilized na
tion. Send for our catalogue
and prices and note the variety
