New Bridge, Ore., Oct. 1, '18.
During the past week we wer$ 1
yisited by a representative of
Parks Bros., a grocery firm of
Portland, who assured us he could
save us from 25 to 50 per cent oq
a grocery order, in fact, that ha 'o
"could sell us goods cheaper than
onr merchants could buy them." ',
One of the first things he as
sured us was that raisins were
selling in here at 40c lor an 11-oz
package, when, as a matter of
face, they are selling for 14c a
pound in bulk or 15c in package.
Now, the freight rate from
Portland to Robinette is $1 per
hundred.lor a cent a pound. Af
ter reaching Robinette it must
still be brought to this Valley. ,
We have personally investigated ;'
the prices charged by our local
stores and find that he cannot '
save us one per cent, let alone 25.
to 50 per cent, and when we.
quoted him Eagle Valley prices
he assured us we were the first
to prove to him that HE COULD
NOT save us money on groceries.
His final defense was, "Well, -
they can't buy things for those
prices in Pine Valley; Tom Estes '
bought a bill of goods from me
for $59.50 and when he asked N.
D. Brown what it would cost to.
fjl.l the gam erdec, .he said 512$
Ic seems to us that anyone who
stops to figure for a moment
would see the great advantage in
patronizing "home merchants" .
when I he price is so nearly the
same as in these things, (and in
some articles really lower here.)
When we have a Liberty Bond
or W. S. S. quota to be raised
it is our home .merchants who
help, not the Portland firms;
when we are "short" or want
credit, it is the local store that
carries our account. The out-of-town
firm demands cash. When
you have farm products to sell,

cept them in exchange for his
