PREPARATION FOR CLOSE BUYING If a business man has an important purchase to make, he looks in the market news of his trade paper to see what the prices are, and what the chances are that the market will rise or fall. Then he is in a position to know how far he can bargain with a salesman. One of the principal reasons why household buying used to be unscien tific was that it was conducted with out .this preliminary preparation. A customer went into a store, and if she saw something she Liked, she bought it on the spot. But very likely the 3tore next door was offering the same goods for 25 per cent less money. This principle is So thoroughly real jteed today that most people turn to the newspaper advertising before making purchases of importance. Market and trade conditions changt so rapidly, that it is not enough for a customer co have general Intelligence about shopping. The good purchase of today is the bad one of tomorrow. The news of the stores needs- to be followed from week to week in the newspaper advertising.. o COMMERCIAL AND " MAYER ARRIVALS Mayer Oeo. B. Williams, Fallon; Donald C. Means, Reno; E. S.
