A FEW REASONS WHY WE ASK YOUR TRADE
1st. Because our line of General Merchandise is as a whole the most compre hensive shown in this county; and is better adapted to your requirements than others for it was selected with the experience acquired in supplying the local trade for twenty years. 2nd. Because this experience has demonstrated the fact that only the better qualities are acceptable to you, and that poor quality at any price does not appeal to you. We therefore eliminate the cheaper grades from our purchases, and offer in every item the quality which we can and do guarantee satisfactory. 3d. Because with us your money is as good as your neighbors and you are en titled to the same price on the same terms and quantities purchased, and the same way with your produce in the same kind and quality. Therefore no discrimina tion., 4th. Because our discount for cash is a fair one between the cash and credit customers, and practically based on the interest rate for use of money. One gains the discount, the other the time, and in either case the goods cost but 95 cents on the dollar on the basis of 5 per cent discount, or six month's time; which on a ma jority of your purchases is just that much less than the amount asked you by the houses selling only for cash, and cutting a few prices only on the many thousand items you have to purchase. We therefore submit to you our claim of having the lowest average price on your requirements. 5th. Because we furnish you the most goods for the money, when quality and price are considered, and while we do not claim our price to be lower on every item, " yet one could purchase a bill from us with his eyes shut and the price would aver age lower than from any other source in this market; and why? 6th. Because our methods and policies are adopted after careful consideration of the interest of our patrons as well as our own, and with the view of building a larger and better business each year by better service and lower prices. The antic ipated results of these reciprocal measures have been more than realized : by the marked growth of our business; resulting in a much larger outlet for merchandise and consequently placing us in a better position to hammer down the price when we buy. , In proof of our claims we refer to the following prices which are figured as the actual cost to you, based either on our cash discount or the benefit of time given on account. These prices in a great measure we have offered since the rail-' road reached Enterprise; with some gradual reductions which our facilities have made possible, even under the condition of an upward tendency in the general cost of production so apparent to every one. In submitting this list we have not only taken a few, but many of the goods required, and on which the merchant must necessarily make a profit to justify carrying on a business.
