FOR YOUNG AND OLD Howitt Bldg. ’^’HEN YOU BUY GROCERIES you expect to get Full Measure and Honest Weight. Did you ever think that you are more likely to get these at a good Cash Store than you are if you buy on credit ? A credit store has to make up for the many little losses, so must weigh and measure far more closely than its Cash competitor. Then, if you for any reason should feel the least dissatisfaction and you are a credit buyer you hesitate to say anything because you are owing money. You are not independent. You stand the loss and say nothing. All this is very different if you trade at a Cash Store. You ?!t favors. You get all it’s possible to get for the money ou pay CASH and are entitled to the MOST and BEST.
