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. . 1 .
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.

Space herejprohibits a more extensive list of prices, but these fairly represent some of the money saving opportunities we offer, and we" believe
they will correct the possible erroneous idea in the minds of some that because we accommodate with credit, our prices must necessarily be high
er than those quoted by others who refuse this favor. Soliciting your patronage on the merits of our goods and prices; with the desire to
better serve you, and each year become a more important factor in the distribution of merchandise, and the development of Enterprise and Wal
lowa County, we are yours respectfully,
