T. SEP. 25. '06 Llnl, It ii time fr txor's to otn tbeir ! f eyes to the fact that the mail order business is a humbug from what ever standpoint it is viewed. THE MAIL ORDER HUMBUG Mr. Hayes and Jude Bridges have a clear cid to the Domination for delegate in their respective parties in this district so far. It is not because Chickasha politicians are lacking in ambition or patriot ism bnt because they are modest and believe in the Scriptural doc trine of "in hoDor pieferrlng one another." Ad with Big Itnilu $ LOST. FOR RENT. "The American people like to be humbugged." said a famous American. Among all the humbugs that de light the people none is more delsu sive than the mail order system of buying goods. It is strange indeed that so many people can be deceiv ed to the extent that they think they can send to St. Lonis, Chicago or some other city and buy goods of equal quality for less than they can buy them at home. Tbe system is a very simple one. A big catalogue is sent out, handsomely illustrated, the goods show up fine in pictures, and, to be fair, tbe prires are won derfully low. Some staple articles, whose values are well known, are marked very low, as a bait. The easy buyer, eagerly takes the bait, swallows the whole catalogue. When the goods come, they look well, of course; it takes a skilled eye to detect the difference between them and the real first class goods that are sold by the home merchant, but it is a well known fact that these mail order concerns bay up all the shoddy stuff in the conn try to turn loose on their victims, and when the purchaser has paid their price with the freight added, he has an article that doesn't com pare in valne with the article that can be bought at home for the same pries. It's a gaitse of humbug from start to finish. It is sometimes imagined that century peop.e aone are the vic-j tims of the mail order house, but wonld beleiveyou that there are ac tually are people in Chickasha who are caught on the game?Its actually a solemn fact. Here we are, all working together, trying to build a city. We are dependent one up on another for our success in busi ness, and yet there are some people who insist upon cheating them selves and cheating our home mer-1 chants by sending off for their goods. The home merchant con tributes to every public cause, to schools, public roads and bridges, to fair premiums, to charity and everything else he pays out his money at home and he rightiy ex pects the patronage of home people to compensate him for his outlay. The mail order house contributes not a dollar to any enterprise in Chickasha or the surrounding country. Are you treating the home merchant fair when send your money away or when you get on the train and go to Kansas City, Chlahoma City or any other place Senator Beveridge thinks the Cu ban trouble will not be settled till your Uncle Samuel takes a good strong dip into it, aud perhaps he is right, but Cuba must be given every opportunity to demonstrate her inability to manage her own affairs before Uncle Sam takes her under his sheltering care. Selfishjes is shortsighted policy in building' a town as well as in in dividual affairs. The man who does not look to the welfare of his neighbor and that of the commun ity is blind to his own Interests. It pays to be public spirited, liberal J and generoiv?.
