How to Beat Mail Order Houses.
People must know you treat them well
On what you keep and hnve to sell,
And with the wisdom thus expressed,

And will "do" you on every turn.

No matter what you nicrclmnts any.

And when he's done he turns them loose;
They trot to town with their produce.

Is to use your head and don't conceal

Play well your hand, be true and wise-
