store's good service every time—on its usefulness In the cons*
munity. Bigness is not always growth. Some stores have
thought so and put up immense buildings end filled them
with goods, but the aisles still echo with emptiness. Those
stores have not proved themselves by service end so they
do not grow. The wonderfully increased business that has
come to this store in the past year is especially satisfactory
because it shows that I am working on the right lines. It
proves that steady insistence on the best goods, on good,
careful, accurate service on the lowest prices—that that sort
of thing tells great plans are afoot for this new year—.and
are beginning to show from day to day. We mean to make
still better In the future a service with values whleh has
always been the best In Detroit.
