T Town and Country Flooded With Outside Catalogs. l
Hundreds of Catalogs were re- .
oeived by nearly every family in
. •town and country this week from
Department Stores with very at
traclive pictures and offers of
speoially low prices, which is very
iuducing to people to send their
mousy away. The local mer
chants lose a great deal of trade,
f .1 by not appealing to the local buy- i
ors with circulars and well gotten
up advertisements telling the peo
ple what they have in novelties
and giving prices. Unless the
local merchants of towns in the
country unite in an effort to keep
the retail trade at home, they will
suffer to the extent of an increas
ing trade going to the department
storm, where, when all is consi
dered, is always against the buyer.
