Change of Business Policy
On and after Feb. 15th our business will be
conducted along the following lines*.
We shall endeavor to B e ll for as nearly cash as is deemed
practicable. Feeline that strictly cash will work somewhat
o f inconvenience we will extend credit to responsible custo
mers for 30 days, after which time account must be paid in
full. I f for any reason you are unable to pay in 30 days it
will be necessary to arrange in the meantime as credit will
be discontinued on all accounts after 40 davs.
In explanation o f the change from long credit various
reasons are herewith given:
First; It is impossible to successfully compete with out
side competion by indiscriminate credit and long time accounts.
Second: It is not right t® ask the cash or paid in full 30
day customer to pay the same as the six month customer.
Third; Too much cash leaves Falls City, the whys and
wherefore are left to your conjecture.
We believe the change will be mutually beneficial. Upon
the effect o f the new policy our business name will be

Heart to Heart Talks About Advertising. a
By Roy B. Simpson.
( Copyrighted. )
Advertising is the same to busines that nitrogen is to
plant life. It is the thing that makes business grow. No
business can become permanently successful without it.
M y first admonition to people who treat advertising
lightly, and also to business concerns who ought to advertise
but don’t, is— DON T B E LITTLE AD VE R TISIN G .
Every advertisement in this newspaper is NEW S and
every news article is an AD VERTISEM ENT.
Press dispatches from Washington advertise the achieve
ments o f some political party or individual member o f Congress.
Roports o f U. S. troops on the Mexican border advertise the
strength o f our army to the world.
All news is information affecting the welfare o f the in
dividual, corporation, state or nation. LiteraUy it is adver
But no news is so vital to all the people as the advertise
ments. Let’s see how advertising news has increased your
A better suit of clothes can be bought today for $15.00
than you could buy for $25.00 a generation ago when woolena
were cheap and no European w ar to inflate prices.
The high-grade flour your grocer sells could not be pur
chased twenty years ago with wheat selling at half present
prices, simply because such good flour conldn’t be made. Y e t
the best flour costs no more now than the inferior product did
Notwithstanding the enormously increased price o f raw
material and high labor cost, you can purchase most o f the
things you eat, wear or use, o f better grade than formerly at
no increase in price. V ery often you pav less.
The manufacturer or dealer does more in one year than
his forefathers did in ten. The old time merchant and manu
facturer realized 50 to 100 per cent profit and more on each
sale, but your modern merchant is content, often with as little
as 3 to 5 per cent, and makes more money—by constantly turn
ing his capital.
Advertising has made this possible. It creates a con
tinuous demand and increases consumption. It reduces the
cost o f manufacture by increasing the production. It makes
competition and keeps retail prices down.
When you READ an advertisement just think o f it as
an important piece o f news published for your exclusive bene
fit. When you W R IT E an advertisement put into it as inter
esting truthful piece o f NEWS.
Don’t belittle advertising.
