"We shall close this afternoon at 4:30 o'clock; in order to allow our 600 employes to attend a talk on "Scientific Salesmanship,' 7 to be delivered by
A. F. SHELDON, OP CHICAGO
The closing o doors by a mercantile establishment
business session, is of tremendous importance both to a house of this size and character, and its great clientele. This house, "we realize, is an integral part
of the mechanism of onr busy city a most important part. It is one of the great pinions around which rapid and important business wheels revolve. TVhen
thus business suspends it affects the city's very life as the stoppage of an arterv" in the human body. It is an event of extrcmest importance, then, that
could induce this house to suspend traffic, at a financial loss of thousands of dollars, perhaps, in sales. That event is at hand. It has always been the aim
of this "DIFFERENT STORE" to surround itself and furnish to its patronage the very best in salesmanship possible to get with good wages. We believe
the best salespeople are none too good for our customers to be waited on by. "We believe we have the best in all this Western country. In fact, it is the
experience of the writer that THE OLDS, WORTMAN & KING EMPLOYES AS A BODY ARE NOT TO BE EXCELLED IN AMERICA TODAY.
But that, even, is not enough. We believe we are in a position to aid our helpers to become more useful, to you. to themselves and to us. We trust
you will look upon the recess we shall take this afternoon at 4:30 o'clock as a means to this end; as a move on our part to furnish you our public
with better than ever service. There's a science to salesmanship today unknown to our fathers. It has been developed with the years, as. has the science and
use of electricity and the art of modern advertising. Salesmanship is today among the professions, and it only lies with the salesman and woman, himself
and herself, to develop the talent that in them lies to become proficient in it and stand at the head of their chosen profession, as the leading lawyers, doctors
and advertising attorneys stand at the head of theirs.
We are going to put the means of accomplishing this end in the hands of our people. We are going to aid them to aid you, to aid themselves, and
become even more useful to us. We have secured the services of that eminent scholar, teacher, salesman, lawyer and orator, MR. A. F. SHELDON, of
Chicago, President of the great SHELDON SCHOOL, to address our firm and its armv of nearly 600 employes at 5 P. M. today. We have selected
this hour that it might not interfere with any other plans or engagements our people may have made for their evenings. We have taken trom our time and
from yours for the benefit of our helpers and for ourselves individual!'. We know you will share the inconvenience with us cheerfully, knowing the object
of it to be of vast mutual benefit. Will you kindly shop before 4:30 todav and share in the splendid bargains of the day?
