order to sow that one acre as he would several acres. It would take
collectors to chaste you arou
him a little longer, perhaps, to put in a few more acres and a little
more seed but as he was all ready for the work the extra time would
not be considered very much.
't is the same way in buying groceries and provisions. It is just as
much work and more for the store keeper to tie up a dollar's worth
of sugar a$ it is for him to sell a 100 pound sack just as It came from
the wholesaler. Same way all the way through. It is the time and
labor and expense of handling goods that makes the price high.
Take for example the following order:
100 pounds of granulated sugar
50 pounds of coffee
25 pounds of tea
4 cases of canned tomatoes
2 cases of canned corn i'
1 box of laundry soap
1 large box of crackers
And many other articles we might mention. Is It not cheaper for
us to have you drive your wagon right up to the atore and one man will
put the whole load In your wagon In a few minutes? You pay us the
CASH and the whole transaction is closed for ail time to come. We have
received our pay for the goods and they belong to you. There (s abso-
lutely no after-clap. No bookkeeper to harass you with st^tf/nents and

The wholesale mar* likes th,l»#klnd jtjf a way pf doing business on
our part. He knows when we orderia bill of goods from him that It is
'going to be SPOT CASH and he gives us a whole lot of consideration.
He reasons this way "Weil, there Is Lawrence Gliruth, we can afford
to shave the prices pretty low to him as he is a CASH customer. We
don't have to wait 30, 60 or 90 days on him and then possibly have
to throw his store Into bankruptcy In order to get anything and then
maybe not get over 1.0 per cent of our claim. Yes sfr, .wrence Gliruth
is safe—he has the right system and we can afford to sell him cheaper
tbjn the merchant that does a credit business, because we run NO
MCES wlth him—he pays CA8H and receives CASH."'^!^™

dribs and dabs. When you buy groceries in small lots it is just the
same as anything else—It costs more. Take for instance, it is just as
much work for the farmer to sow an acre of ground as it is for him
to sow several acres. The farmer had to go to practically the same
amount of work and trouble in feeding his horses and harnessing them
and getting them ready to hitch up and get the drill out and put it in
every possible Item of exp^^Vect
ed with the ordinary grocery store, such as bookkeeper, collector, tele­
phone, dellverey, bad accounts. That helps us put the price right down
where It belongs. Someone has got to pay these expenses at a store that
ioes.a telephone,. charge and delivery business, and dear reader, It is no
one else but you and the rest of the people like you that pay this expense.
It is an expense that MUST be met by someone or the grocery man would
not last a month.
We handle all of our goods on 10 and 15 per cent from the wholesale
price., No groceryman who delivers and trusts can do this and live to
do business. It ls a cold blooded fact and everyone in the business
knows eourae, If you want (he convenience of credit and delivery
