I sn ’ t T his L ogical ?
T h a t no profit can be made on the sale o f an
article of J e w e l r y , until all expenses incident
to the sale are deducted, is the natural sup­
isn’ t this correct?
A /o w consider the higher the expense o f a
jeweler, the higher the selling price o f an ar­
ticle o f jewelry must be.
F u rth e r you are aware that my expenses in
operating a jewelry establishment in Estacada
are nothing as compared with the big jewelry
houses in Portland and other cities.
S o - which one of us can make the quickest
profit on a sale?
o f course!
T h a t is why I am asking you to let me quote
you prices on any article o f jewelry, before
you purchase elsewhere. 1 do not have the
heavy expense o f carrying a big stock, but
1 have the catalogs and can furnish you any
article at a saving to you and with a fair prof­
it to me and 1 guarantee satisfaction.
C onsider this now before you do your Christ­
mas buying and let’s get together and inciden­
tally keep the home dollar in home circulation.

When I want to find fault with mv
men I say nothing when I go through
their department!*. If I were satisfied
I would praise them. My silence hurts
them more than anything else in the
world, and It doesn’t give «flfense. It
makes them think and work harder.
Many men tail because the. do not
see the Importance of being kind and
courteous to the men under them.
Kindness to everybody always pays
for Itself. And, besides. It Is a pleasure
to I k * kind. I have seen men lose Im­
portant positions, or their reputations
—which are more Important than any
position—by little careless discourte­
sies to men whom they did not think it
was worth while to be kind to.—
