A million dollars a day!
A lot of money isnl it?
It represents the um that the
residents of the ma'J towns and
r uraic.mni unities oit I lis count ry
,. , .,,
.are sriendmir everv dav with Un
catalogue houses for tilings they
could buy just as reasonable at
A million dollars a day!
How much is this town and
neignborhood contributing t
this sum? How much are you,
dear reader, diverting from the
natural channel of home trading
toward the coffers of one of the
most powerful of trusts in this
country of trusts? j
So menacing has become thisj
mail order evil that, in common
with many other determined local
merchants and newspapers we
have become affiliated with Home
Trading League, which has just
one object in view and that is to
persuade you to convince you
absolutely that it is most profit
able for you to spend your money
where yoa make it.
This town -this neighborhood
is being drained of so much
money by people who unthink
ingly send it away from home
tliat its prosperity is not only
menaced but its very existence
as a place having a commercial
future, is in question.
This is a serious statement to
make, but one that can b easily
and fairly proven, and we mean
it j prove it in the columns of this
jr.ewpaper week in and . k
We projxse to dissect and ex
plain some of these mail order
catalogues and lay bare the falla
cy of the majority of the so-called
"bargains" offered there.
We shall compare our own
home rices with catukgue pri-es
sj that the man who makes his
money here and spends it in Clii-
cago may know hereafter j'Jst
what ho is doing and have no
economic excuse fur las habit.
He will learn through those
articles we propose to print every
week, that with every dollar sent
to a catalogue house he will be
dealing a blow to his own ho:i:e
with his eyes ojien.
We aren't-doing this work for
philanthropy either. We want
