If one were asked: "What has been the greatest factor in the prosper ity of the farmers and the great mass' of people living outside of the large centers of population?" the answer would be "The Great Mail Order Houses," the largest of which are located in Chicago. These mail order establish ments have put the selling of merchandise to the people on a new and different basis, a common sense basis, an economical, money saving basis, and their enormous-growth and success is due to this fact, the fact that they are established on principles that are fundamentally correct. The last move of Sears, Roebuck & Co., Chicago, one of the largest of these, mail order houses, the most gigantic move of its kind ever recorded, whereby they occupy twenty acres of space and put up a $4,000,000 institution, is ' directing more than ever the attention of all thinking people to this com paratively new development in the merchandise world namely, the mail order house. .:'--...;-;.;';';- ' r . - ......
