HERE IS ONE WAY TO HELP
A B ancroft, Idaho, business man,
J. M enhard, owner of the Square
Deal store, recently has found a
way to m eet catalogue house com
petition, face to face, and to beat
it on its own ground.
Mr. H enhard’s experience is il
lum inating and is given herew ith
with the idea that it may be helpful
to m any merchants.
Mr. M enhard has w ritten the fo l
lowing letter, covering his method,
which is self explanatory:
“ I am enclosing an ad th a t I
printed to ru n in our weekly paper,
and to mail to our list and to dis
trib u te by hand.
“ This is the dandiest mail order
town I ever was in, and I have been
in a g re a t many towns, so I thought
to put it fti black and white would
be the best way. Now I am w aiting
to have our other m erchants follow
this up next week with advertising
of clothing, shoes, dresses, etc. Then,
when all the other stores have had
their day, I will start a new one and
keep it up.”
The advertisem ent used was a
double-column ten inch display, and
“ Come, l e t ’s reason together.
Here is an example. A mail order
house lists colored Indianhead at
43 cents a yard. 3*4 yards a t 43
cents— $1.51. Parcel post charges,
15 cents. Postoffice money order, 5

The first carload of eggs from

512 cases of eggs, with 30 dozen
eggs in each ease, m aking a total

value of $21,000. The shipm ent was
routed from F resno to St. Louis,

The first consignm ent, a fo reru n

of the e ffo rts o f the Fresno Poul-
