The Liberal Use of Printers ink is
Bringing Good Results. Five
Full Pages Last -Week.
The live, merchants of
Marion are reaping a rich harvest and,
too, during the dull season of the year,
and all because they keep the needs of
the people in stock and advertise what
they keep. A liberal use of printers-ink
is not thrown away on an
people. A page add may not
intarest one man when it is just what
the other fellow is looking for. The
good housewife does not feel interested
in one merchants add while she is deeply
so in another, but she reads all of
them just the same.
Montgomery, Ward & Co., and
Sears & Roebuck advertise their goods
else the people would not be guilty of
sending money out of tho State for
gods, that in many instances, they
could have bought cheaper at home.
Keep what these mail-order houses
keep and let the people know you keep
them an they will have little excuse
for sending hard earned money out of
the State for cheap goods. Our merchants
arc entet prising, business men,
who, both want and need your trade.
They buy your produce, giving you for
U in many instances, more than you
could get for it away from home, saving
you the freight, and surely you
should patronize the people that buy
your surplus. These mail-order houses
toll you what they have and very frequently,
as well as unfortunately, you
buy of them. But just send them an
ad., setting forth the fact that yon
have chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys,
butter and eggs for sale and they will
laugh you to scorn.
Stand by your home merchants. They
are your friends and you can be theirs.
How do you think it looks for you to
ask your home merchant for credit and
turn from him to ar. unappreciative
stranger to spend your money? Surely
yru thnul4 not Kfnd vnur mnnev to
merchants who would not credit you
for a dime.
Come to Marion, new things are
happening, a now era is being lived
and the good old town is on a boom.
