Kins Sta. "Home Baying" was Vie timely topic dealt with by Manager Brasch ;cf Whitney & Marsh at a recent meet ing cf the Honolulu Ad Club. j Mr. Brasch advocates a general " newspaper ' advertising campaign cn-sit-r the auspices of the mercantile or--ianiratious to bring before Lhe buy ing public the folly of "sending away " f.r foods and tb advantages froia a; trict matter cf dollars and cent3 of trading at home. .: 0 ,'We and others fn buriness in Ho nolulu," said Mr. Brasch, "are often asked ly dieappointed patrons of catalogue houses to. exchange the (goods which they, hare received from such concerns, on account of the goods not being just 'what they ex pected' or sometimes because the gar ments do not fit : This could not bap pen if homo stores were- patronized, because in the case of ready to wear garments all necessary alterations are made "free of charge, whereas if you ; buy from a mail order bouse any al terations which have to be made after the garment arrives are naturally at your own expense. ' . "It is all very well for the mail or der houses to say that they will re fund the money if the goods are un- satisfactory, but that does not com pensate one for the delay, disappoint ment and certain incidental expenses.' Can't Issue Catalogues. ; Vv: . ."Our local merchants cannot issue catalogues. The expense is too great and it would require the carrying of too large a stock. Mainland catalogue houses do not have to carry a stock of articles ; illustrated in their cata- legues; they have the open market to draw from and can replenish from day to day, which of course is locally 'impossible..;.: . "v. '- "Even if we. did issue catalogues, I doubt if our patrons would treat us In. the same manner is they, have. to. do when dealing with a mainland hcuse. Tnose having charge accounts would eay "charge it" and it would be much easier both on account of ex pense and time to, return merchandise to the local dealers. In fact all the little additional item3 and vexations Ijj connection with a mail order or in case of goods arriving in a damaged condition, must be borne by the pur-, chaser. ' ' . . ; .

To the Point "In this connection 1 ran across a clipping the other day which is very much to the point, and I wish every one' who has a desire to send away for things would read it ; : - -Mail Order vs. Home Dealing. " This is an old story but true to day as yesterday and the day before, and "lest we forget, f it will bear repeatlns: . 'Down In Oklahoma the other day a man went Into a store fa buy a saw. He saw the kind he wanted and asked the price. It was $1.65, the dealer said.'- ;r-'-y ' : " 'Cood graciou's said the man, 'I can get the same thing from Sears, Roebuck & Co. for $1.35.' : r " That's less than it cost me,' said ihe dealer. but I'll sell it on the same terms a3 the mail order house Just the rame.' '. ':'--y:). " 'All right, said the customer, you can send it along and charge it to my account . v. : ' '--2 ;, "Not on ycur life said the dealer ."No 'charge accounts. Ycu can't do business with the mall order housa that way. - Fork over the cash." The customer complied. - "New 2 cents for ' postage and 3 cents for a money order." !. ' "What--" - "Certainiy, you; have, to send a let ter and a moneyrder to a mail order house you know", W; . ' t ; .' The customer, .inwardly raving, kept to. his agreement and paid' the nickel. "Now 25 cents expressage." : v "Well, 1 11 be--" he said, but paid it sayf ng, , "Now, ..hand me that saw and I'll take It )iome myself and be rid'orthU foolery."," "Hand it to;youi ,vnere uo you think and I to wait two weeks for that saw ; "This makes $LC7," he said. : "It has cost you 2 cents t more and taken you two weeks longer to get it than If you had paid my price In the first place." ., . - An Advertising Campaign. . v "My idea-for promoting the Home Buying is to carry, on an advertising campaign, somewhat similar to that which I read - has, been, very", success fully worked out, 4a Lynchburg, Vir ginia, where the chamber of ' com merce buys space. In the local papers, and carries on a live and consistent campaign for educating the people. I ; think some such organization as the Merchants' Association or the Chamber of Commerce should make arrangements for the purchase of ad vertising In the two Honolulu papers, and develop a first-class publicity camDaign for stirring' the people to realize the advangtages of buying In their home towa " This advertising might well be expended to the local papers of the other Islands.'
