RUN ON LIBERAL PRINCIPLES The Primary Aim Is to Give Dollar for Dollar to the Public Capable Salespeople Employed to Assist Customers in Making Selections. Policy Employed in Selecting and Dealing With Employes. Probably ono of the most startling examples of the pluck, push and suc cess that characterizes the typical Seranton business man, is found iu tho firm which conducts The Fair store, at 400 and 409 Lackawanna avenue. Some facte in relation to tho men who conduct this emporium, the liberal treatment of employe, their broad business policy and tlio peculiar fea tures, winch seem bound to make Tho Fair one of this city's most successful enterprises, may be of interest to the public generally. While E Friend and F. J. Royl, the proprietors of ilm store, are iu every HOiii'e of the Word CitiZlllS of Senmton, they havo had vast experiences in New York and Brooklyn, from which their patrons must necessarily get th bene fit. Mr. Friend bus had twenty years' experience in the dry goods buaintsi and In s been tio successful mumtger of some o the largest retail establish ments of New York. The bntiae life of T. J. Ruyl has been entirely devoted to the dry goods business and to nil which pertain to it, lie is also origi nally from Brooklyn, and iu especially familiar with the wauls and needs of his customers. TUB VHrTTUBK RCCCSCK3FUI.. When it was Known that these two gentlemen contemplate 1 establishing a permanent business on a largo scale, several of their friend advised them not to chooio the preiont location of Tho Fair, owing to tho fact that several enterprises which havo been conducted thoro have been uulucky. The Fair Una, however, wero undeterred, and their wisdom in locating where they did is evidence 1 by the rush of busi ness going on in the store and the suc cess which hue crowned their effort. O io of the firMi uiovci was n com plete renovation and change of the store. A new and attractive show fron". was built and a display window erect. d along tho Hide ot the store on the continuation ot Wyoming avenue. Within a few weeks millinery and clo.ik departments were located on the second ibor. Since the day of the opening, April 9, Mr. Friend and Mr. Royl nave been l igiily gratified at the condition of their trade, Flfiy-flVS cl.rks are employed Monday, Saturday and on i x'ra busy days. The mention of employes recills one policy of Tbe Fair which meets the op , rival ot its oustomer. In the first place, no novices ure regularly em ployed. All are intelligent and well paid salesmen and saleswomen. Prob ably ths liberal policy of Tuo Fair to ward its employe is not exeeeded by any store in the city. There) is no dock age of wages owing to sickness or un avoidable nbcenco or tardlnes. An atmosphere of freedom is around tbe employes, n::d this liberty is not aim ed. In return for this kindness tho help are assiduous and attentive to The Fair's patrons and to the interests of their employer as well. TtlBRB 13 NO PISCiUMtSATION. Another commendable feature of tho Bale system is tho fact the clerks are not representative of nny one nation ality. American, German, Irish and Welsh people are employed. It is the policy of the firm to carry regular lines of good?, aud tlio absence of od ls-.md-ends job lots and other trash usually found in dry goola establishments is a foaturo which please the public. Th management buys for cosh and caters to a constituency composed of a good class of people. The Fair store always contains com plete lines of goods not generally found in other pliw.i 3 of lis kind. Millinery goods, ladies' and gonis' furnishings, infants' wear, boys' clothing, men's und boys' hats, boots and shoes in fuct ovcrylhing tho most exacting cus tomer dosires is curried iu stock. Attor considering tho above facts it is not making any mistake to predict continued success for The Fair. MUSICALE AT GREEN RIDGE. It Was Given at (he Asburv Churoh Lait Night.
