The Changing Times
The era of Chain Stores came about because a
group of men with large capital could, by starting
stores iu differeut localities iucrense the outlet of
'merchandise emiuating from one source.
The Chain Store system is nothing more than
any other store except the buying part is concentrat
ed at one place. The buyers for these stores have
their headquarters at the source of production and
they buy direct from the packer or the producer.
It goes without saying that a buyer who can buy
the same sort of merchandise for several hundred
stores can command a better price than a. buyer for
just one store.
The secret of advantageous grocery prices iu St.
Johns is this ability to buy in connection with many
other stores. That is why you have had established
by this store better prices than prevail almost any
where in Portland.
Coupled with this buyiug capacity, the activity
of the owners, the acquaintance with the locality be
cause of our long residence here ought to conviuce
am; one that we can do b'usiness at less'cost than the

Listen: The man who saves aimlessly never
saves much. But the one who sets his heart and
mind on attaining something that can only be
got by saving- that is the man who builds up a
good bank account. He is not thinking about
money, he is thinking about his heart's desire
that only money can bring to him.
And another thing: Every banker knows that
the best saver is the one who saves systemati
cally -so much every week or month whatever

But so far as noted St. Johns
leads them all. An illustration
of this is the product of one tree
owned by A. J. Kreum in North
St. Johns. The tree is forty
years old and six feet in circum
ference. This year it produced
1250 pounds of picked cherries
for which Mr. I'reum received
thirteen cents per pound, or a
total of ? 162. 50. Besides this
there was probably moro than
fifty pounds left on the tree.
Cortarnly a valuable tree.
