Batik No. 5428. Report of the Conditions of Total Capital stock »»aid in Surplus fund Undivided profits Total »Utemeut li true to the best The to!lowing is taken from an article recently published in Tneo Christenson's paper. The Dawson Sentinel, in desci ibing an Eastern trip ho took last summer. "Ill the afternoon we did ail un heard ol thing tor a country editor. We inspected the Sears. Roebuck plant. As I viewed the buildings with their 75 acres ot tloor space, I could not help wondei how much ot i\ represented profits tioiu Lnv iui Parle county people and 1 thought how much better the bricks and representing these pro fits would look if placed on the streets of Dawson, Madison or one ot tile villages ill niv country I s.nv the printing plant, the second hug est in the United Mates, turning out •v.l.OO i.UOO catalogue- per year among wnich'manv ot the people ot our country are well acquainted. And I was told that the linns employed 27,000 people, and that its postage bill was a million a year Ami I wondered how with tnese and other stupendous expense?, tile great in.til order hou^e could make the people believe that it can do business at a lower preeentage than the country merchant Figure it out for vour self. On Uo,ot)ii.OOO. annual business, the expense of: printing and distributing the large |catalogues alone is 6 per cent. Add the ground rent, the high Chicago taxes, the insurance and express bill, the high salaries paid to the men higher up the army lower down, the interest ou the invest-j meut, and then show, i: von c.in how the large firm, which "elimi nates the middle man' can do bus iness at an expense of less than 30 per cent. It the average merchant of Dawson added 30 per cent to his invoice cost he would lose his cus tomers and go out ot business in three weeks. The truth is that the country merchant is the tellow who does business on a small margin ot profit, and who can, and gives the people th'e best service in the long run.
