Our Cure for the High Cost
We have reduced delivery to the minimum; we
are active and aggressive in the conduct of the bus
iness; we are preferred buyers because of our quantity
purchases and cash payment.. We pay no book
keeper as we sell for cash only and do not need books.
Our rent is not high compared with the sales
volume; our location is ideal. We have cut the mar
gin of profit consistent with a large amount of sales.
. Our Groceries are not "cheap groceries" but are
simply quality goods at minimum prices.
Compare the prices we are listiug here with those
of the "Service Grocer" who carries charge accouuts,
who carries the goods to you, who loses the bad ac
counts that you must pay and who buys in small lots.

we bought heavily before the rise.
We are first in the market in our district with
the new crop of Raisins, seedless and with seeds; New
Oregon Walnuts, Kraut and Mince Meat.
THE DIAGNOSIS: Competition among the Grocers
for Service got so keen that they would pay a man to
go to your home for your order, pay the bookkeeper
for keeping the account, pay a man for delivering the

Two deaths rcniltimr from
"sleeping Bicknoss," technical-
ly known as lethargic enephalitis,
havo occurred in Portland during
tho last week and another case
now is under surveillance. Tho
prevalence of the diseaso until
Tuesday night was unknown by
tho city health authorities be-
caiiBO the cases were said not to
havo been reported to tho city
health bureau. Tho discovery
resulted from tho death certi
ficates entered in connection
with tho two fatal cases, both
of which gave the cause of death
as lethargic enephalitis. A gen
eral opinion prevails that "sleep-
ntr s ckness" is lata in all n-
stances, but according to com
petent medical mon such is not
tho caso. It is said that about 20
per cent of tho victims of the
disease succumb, while the re
maining 80 per cent recover
without any apparent ill effects.
Interest in local business ac
tivities iB just now overshadow
ed by tho critical national sit
uation. Strike condition's are,
for tho moment, much less dis
turbing in Portland than in tho
Bay and Sound cities. A strike
which would havo tied up all con
struction work at the St. Johns
Municipal Tormina! has been
narrowly averted tho past week,
as has also a stroet car strike.
Tho heighth of optimism pre-
vails and business expansion
continues apace, as shown by
bank clearings, new corporations
formed and an unprecedented
volume of retail buying. It is
reported, however, that local
jobbers and retaileri aro plac-
ng their orders for spring de
ivery with greater caution.
Lumber shipments are being
