Wlien a man establishes himself in a legltieiate business it should be
with a determination that he's groins: to stay, to make his home, if he expects to succeed,. We started in to stay in . In a town of this size a merchant must depend on repeated sales to the same customers
day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year. In an immense city it might be possible, were a man so disposed, to figure on selling to each customer only once, depending on fresh
victims each day; then it wouldn't matter to him how the victims felt about it. But we want regular trade steady, satisfied, friendly customers, who come to us confidently and constantly. And the way
to get and hold such customers is to treat them fairly and squarely. So you see, leaving the matter of morals out of the question, the consideration of self-preservation, our very business existence, demands
that we shall deal honorably by our fellow men, if we want to stay in business. AND WE DO WANT TO STAY. ,
We are making a great many strong inducements just now to attract new customers (and the old ones get the benefit, too), and we intend that every person who makes even one purchase here
shall carry away and retain a good impression of our store and our methods.

How is it that so many women go on wash

and can fruit at the same time?
