D ear S ih :—Last week I arrived
in McMinnville fully prepared to
open a Drug Store in vourenterpris
ing city, but after looking the field
aver, I was convinced that it would
be suicidal for me to embark in
trade where there is a buiness hottSe,
so disgustingly aggressive and so
lost to the interests of other houses
as one you have located in your
city. It is with surprise and
chagrin that I notice that this par
ticular house is steadily increasing
its number of customers day after
day, by employing methods that
would make it very uncomfortable
for me, if i were in business here.
Just as it now does for competing
‘establishments who are striving to
combat the evil. I refer to G eo .
