It takes brains to .run a retail 6tore. A lot of people are nlways trying it and failing. The merchant must be a good organ izer, have a grasp of system and detail, must have sound practi cal judgment and general intel ligence. When a man ha.? made good on these tests, he must have good sense and ability. He places ali that at the command of the com munity, and goes the limit to givo the best service in his power.

When you buy of them, therefore, you get the personal attention of men of intelligence and capacita, which is a great help in Pitting the most for one's money.
