retained as manager, which position he held until this
week, when he was transferred as manager of the
Salem store. In the Spring of "191.9 thoy added a store
t Sheridan, known as the King Smith Department
store. This store had been conducted for a number oi
years by the two Smith Brothers, who became .stock
holders In the Miller corporation, Mr. King uinpuama
tit his Interests. The Smith Brothers were retained to
aianage the Sheridan store. Later, during the same
year, they added a store at Yamhill, formerly owned
by a Mr. Gist, who bad Just-recently died. It was Mr.
Girt s personal wish that the Millers take over his
business. This store was managed for a little over a

Frank Miller, son of General Manager U. S. G. Miller
was elected manager. ' "i
The last store to be added to the list was the H.
W. and M. L. Meyers store of this city, which became
the property of the Miller Mercantile Company, Mon

made possible by both the Meyers Brothers desiring to
retire from active business for the time being. With

tire personnel of the store remains with the new own

policy of the Millers to establish new, competitive
stores, but rather to take over going concerns, and In
nearly every Instance retain the organization intact.
' The company 1b entirely an Oregon institution,
every dollar's worth of stock being owned by local
people, and ln no instance will Btock be sold to out
siders. Every manager is a stock holder in the com
pany,, and each store remains a purely local Institution,
always ready to back up any local work, truly be
lieving in the slogan, "Your Home Town First."
Miller's Store Policy.
The store policy of the Miller Mercantile Company
can he summed up very briefly, it being:
"Good Goods", sold under a positive guarantee of
satisfaction to the purchaser, coupled with the very
oest STORE SERVICE.
By "Good Goods" we mean a combination of
QUALITY 'and STYLE, so combined as to give the pur
chaser lasting satisfaction, In no instance will we feel
satisfied until every customer has received full value
in wear and service, for every dollar spent with us.
By STORE SERVICE we mean that nothing will
remain undone that we can do to enable us to Sorve
you In the best manner possible.
Long years of experience makes the Miller Com
pany well acquainted with the best markets, and
QUALITY has always been, and always will be the first
consideration, In our purchases.
It is our aim, to so establish our reputation In
Salem that the remark will be often heard upon our
Streets, "IK YOU GET IT AT MILLERS, YOU KNOW
ITS RIGHT, AND THE PRICE WAS RIGHT,"
. We believe in a "No Halo" policy, feeling that hon
est business today demands that everybody get a
When we see a garment advertised as worth $100
reduced to $87.50, we :un Inclined to think that some
body lied. No merchant can remain in business unless
he sells his goods at a profit. We maintain' that a gar
ment is worth the same at all times during the season.
To charge Mrs, Jones an exorbitant price early
ln the geason so that Mrs. Smith can get hers at a big
reduction later on, and by so doing make our average
profit, is not our way of doing business. To murk our
goods "RIGHT" at the beginning, so that Mrs. Jones
and Mrs. Smith will both get a "SQUAKE DEAL" Is
We feel sure that as the years go by we shall win
a warm spot in the hearts of Salem people. We are
only human, and will make mistaken, but we assure
you that they will be mistakes of the head and not of
,the heart. ,
We are one of you. We want you to be one of us.
