HEY say a farmer, once sent his
. boy to town on horseback with a
bag of . apples tied behind the sad
dle, and told him to go to town and sell
. the apples. At night John came home
with the apples still in the bag. The
farmer asked why: he didn't sell the ap
ples. John said : " I rode all over town
and no" one said anything to me about
apples." "What! Didn't anyone speak
to you all day?" Why, yes, several
men hollered and asked me what I had
in the sack, but I told them it w;as none
of their darned business."
Some merchants, like the. boy, don't
think it necessary to let the public know
what they have in the bag. Others fear
tHeir competitors have better- apples and
may sell them at ' a less price and are
afraid to open the bag and show their
goods or quote a price.
We welcome comparison of both qual
ity and N prices. Past experience has
taught both ourselves and our patrons the
result to anticipate. We "show the ap
ples" and tell the price.
You will notice the superior qualities
and always the prices are a little less here
on other things as well as "apples."
