Keep Your Money at Home.
A prominent, mil oider house
sent an advertiing proposition to
us this week, and enclosed copy for
a larger ad than any now running,
in this paper. The proposition
looked good to us, and the rate
wasn't so bad considering what is
usually offered by tr.inscit.iit adver
tisers, who usually think the coun
try editor will be willing and glad
to accept that copy for a much low
er rate than the home advertiser.
The ad contained matter relative to
groceries, furniture and some dry
goods. It quoted prices probably
considerable lower than any of the
home merchants. These advertis
ers can afford to use a little money
for bait. The first order usually
convinces the sane person that they
cannot get something for nothing,
even if it looks good on the start
and the quoted price is less than
what the home dealers make. Your
home merchant is not a highway
robber! He doesn't want to, orex-
pect to get rich quick off the profits
from his friends and neighbors. He
spends his money here at home,
pays taxes along with you, and in
vites you to patronize him through
the home newspaper. He cannot
afford to send out expensive cata
logues, legitimate profits and honest
and square dealing w ill not permit
it. but he has to have his goods
and prices compared with mail or
der houses, founded on shoddy
goods and underhanded dealing.
Can you satisfy yoursclt where you
in any one incident secured what
you considered the value of your
money from a mail order house?
Did you ever stop to think of the
principle connected in so sending
your patronage out of town? Do
you think for a minue that any
one of them would trust you for a
cent? When you want credit you
always look to the home merchant.
Why not just as well spend your
money with him when you have it?
You send away for material aud ar
ticles because you cannot get them
here at home. Ask lor them at
your dealers and by creating a de
mand lor such things you will soon
find them on their counters all of
the time. We placed the advertis-1
ing proposition in our waste bas
ket. The next time you receive a
mail order catalogue, place it in the
only place where it can do good
in the fire. If, by keeping these
advertisements out of the home
newspaper, we can accomplish even
a little toward keeping our money
at home, we feel . satisfied that our
energies aud loss have bfeu well
spent. Bandon Recorder,
