To Thrifty People
IT has hitherto been found impossible by the
Retail Merchant to guard 'his business'
against losses through bad debts,
because the merchant found infallibly that a
certain percentage of the amounts which passed
through his books were never paid, with the
inevitable result that those who paid cash paid
the debts of those who never paid; yet the
merchant did not, nor could not, have two prices
for his goods one for cash and another for
credit, so until Cash Stamps were introduced
he could give no inducement to the public to
pay cash. Now, however, the merchant is
enabled, through the agency of the Cash
Stamps to reward those Thrifty Folks who
pay Cash for their goods.
One Stamp is given FREE with each ten
cents spent. Thus, one for ten cents, two for
twenty cents, three for thirty cents and so on,
bu.t no stamps are given on the odd five cents.
