Whom Docs This Hit!
The following clipped from an ex
change is very put and contains there
in a whole armful of advice:
"Who sympathized with you when
your little girl was sick? Was it your
home merchant or was it Sears, Roe
buck A Co.? Who carried you last
winter when you were out of' money?
Was it Montgomery, Ward & Co., or
your home merchant? When you want
to raise money for some needy person
in town do you write to the 'Fair' store
in Chicago or do you go to your home
merchant? How much does Siegel,
Cooper & Co. give toward keeping up
the sidewalks of the town or paying;
the minister's salary? When you were
sick how many nights did Iiibbard,
Spencer and Kurtlett sit up with you?
When your loved one was buried, was
it Marshall Field Co. who dropped that
tear of sympathy and uttered the cheer
ing words, or was it your home mer
chant? Pianos and Organs.
If you are thinking of buying, you can
