BUYING AT HOME.
Some of the Springfield mer
chants have been complaining
that they are not holding the
Christmas shoppers this year )
and that much of the business
has'been going, to Eugene. Dur
ing, the last few days practically
eyery car that comes from
across the river brings local
people laden with Christmas bun
dies. Money earned in Spring
field Is taken out of this com
munity and spent in support of
the merchants of another com-ibeen
Wlmt lc the. fiiicn nf thte lark
the citizens of Springfield? Is
It that the merchants do not
carry the kind of goods the buy
ers. Remand? .Are tjbe Christmas
-gopde, that are, being offered
this years goods? Are they dis
played in such a manner that
the buyers will be attracted?
The Christmas shopper this
year is not looking so much for
Gejrman mechanical toys that
"Work as he is looking for the at
tc'tlVe substantial gifts that
Will be of good practical use to
the Johnys and Marys who will
receive them. The Christmas
Shopper now-a-days is looking
for good substantial buys and
is not raking the counters for
cheap shoddy bargains. Do the
merchants of Springfield have
the kind of merchandise in stock
that appeals enough to the buy
er to have him leave his money
at the stores and take the mer
chandise. If the mecbants have the kind
of goods in stock that the buy
ing public demands, do they adr.
Vertlse sufficiently? -The mer
chant in the large city 'spends
several weeks giving practical
aid and suggestions foj6hris't
mas buying in vlarge full-page
ads in the papers. Tha merch
ants of the larger towns spend
hundreds of dollars to attract
buyers to their stores from com
munities for miles around. They
have been pursuing this method
of publicity and have increased
It every year. It pays or they
would have stopped it long ago.
Eugene merchants are advertis
ing in the Eugene papers and in
several other papers in the coun
ty. Eugene is 'getting most
of Lane county's Christmas
If the merchants of this town
ever .hope to keep the trade, es
pecially In dry goods, they will
havo to tell people what they
have to sell. All the goods
cannot be displayed in the win
dows and the customers will
not spend their time making
the rounds of stores in search
of, certain articles when they
know just wbere they pan get
the same thing in Eugene. Use
the home paper, use circulars,
letters, bill, boards, use posters
use anything that will tell he
people what they can purchase
in SpHngficid' at prices as low
as, any In ojber towns.
. Advertising is not a matter
of staging bargain sales. Its
greatest Talue Ilea In lt edii-
cational qualities. Tho buyers
of Springfield need only to bo
convinced that they can do their
Bhopplng to advantage at homo
and they will. not go four or a
hundred miles away to make
