SALE DRINOS ma., Only $,m000 was realised )rom the closing-out sale of its entire stock and fixtures during the last two weeks. it was stated, and this togeth er with cash on hand and other re sources will barely be enough to pay the outstanding debts of the store. It was thought at Aret that enough money would be realised from the sale of the stock of groceries an'i other goods to pay back the 4624 investors all but $1.26 each on their original investment of $6 each, but due to a steadily declining market and the severe competition of the chain stores. it was announced that pone of the stockholders would re ceive any of their money back. In the fourteen days that it took to close out the stock, most' of the goods were sold much below cost, dus to the falling market. but even with the heavy price decline the sale net ted approximately 55 per cent of the inventory taken before the sale be gan, which, according to officials of the store, is a much higher per cent. age than is usually realised from a sale of this sort. They state that 40 per cent is all that is usually realised on such sales. EMPLOYES SAT5'EUD. Store officials declared that none of the Treasury employes feel very bad about the matter because they have all saved more than $5. the amount of their investment, since the opening of the store in the difference in the prices of goods sold at the Treasury store and the prevailing prices on the outside. "A large number of the stockhold ers have told us that they have saved many times $5 since they have been buying groceries and other goods alt our store, compared to prices they would have had to pay on the outside. so they shouldn't feel bad about the loss," declared one of the store man ager stoday. MANAGE S CRITICISED. The failure of the store is attrib uted to peer management and un skilled buying during the past year. officials stated. It was pointed out that the store would have been a suc dasOmoad-it not isviated from the sale of groceries and other commodities incident to the general grocery busi ness, and made large purchases of clothes, shoes and other goods in com petition with department stores. Un skilled buying in these lines, together with large purchases of grocers at top prices, caused its failure. it was said. From the final counting. which is being completed, it is thought that there will be a slight shortage of the sum sufficient to meet all of the out standing debts of the store. When the exact amount of this shortage is ascertained, it was stated the stock holders will be appealed to by the store officials to contribute the sum necessary to meet its outstanding debts. This, it was said, will be done probably next Monday.
