''GIFTS THAT LAST"
AINT IT THE TRUTH
A fellow is liable tn make a
donkey of himself If he btts on
the other fellows nicks.
When "Yours Truly" was a boy and lived back in the
forks of the creek, he used to get "city slicked" every time
he came to town.
One day, down at the wagon yard, a "smart-alec" ap
proached him, said; "I'll bet you a dime I can stick my.'
knife blade through your hat-brim and not leave a hole,"
the wager was made and the "lucre" put in the hands of a
disinterested (?) stake-holder; and would you believe it,
he soused his knike-blade clear through my Sunday hat
brim, and yanked. 'Tis true he didn't leave any hole, but
there was a horrible "split" place left to tell the tale. Gen
tle reader, then and there I made up my mind that a,s long
as I lived never again would I bet on the other fellows
But all merchants weren't fortunate enough to get this lesson. Scarcely a day
passes but what customers tell us of some of our fellow grecermen in speaking of us,
.say; "He is selling stuff at less than it cost him". Gentle Reader, the next time you
hear such a statement, tell 'em "No brother, that fellow "Yours Truly" is not sel
ling "stuff at less
Gentle reader anytime you think all retail grocers pay
the Mime price for stuff, you've certainly got another guess
coming. There's a difference in buying power, there's
a difference in the merchant who is slow pay and the one
who is prompt pay. Then again the grocer who sells only
for ca-sh always gets better prices from the wholesale
man than the one who sells on credit, as you know we
sell only for cah and we are jut a particular about the
buying end. as we are the selling end. We are as poor
as the proverbal church mouse, but no gargle-eyed human
can stand on two feet and say this store owes him one dime
on past due account.
A WORD ABOUT OUR SERVICE.
We have eight young men helping take care of our
trade; they are just humans, no doubt they forget and
speak short to the customers sometimes, but it isn't the
policy of the owner to do it. Sometimes they don't "fix
up" your purchases just like they should, sometimes they
say "they haven't time" then I tell 'em, I'd rather pay
out a full days salary, than have one customer leave the
than it cost HIM. he's selling itat less than it cost YOU.

Our boys are improving daily; they are making service a study; they are building
for the future, they know that the amount of their pay check depends largely on the
kind of service they render to our customers entrusted to their care. Trade at the
