We have got it, We will
get it, or it is not made.
When you were n youngster, did you
ever make a trade, "sight unseen?"
Of course you did. What boy has not
risked his jackknife or lils choicest mar- ;
ble on such a proposition and how oft-
en has he repented of his rash deed
when he discovered what he got in the
trade? He generally found that the
deal turned out to the advantage of
the one who made the proposition.
There is a little of the gambling In-
stinct in the blood of nearly every man,
woman and child, hut even the hard-
ened gambler likes to get a "run for
his money." The "sight unseen" prop-
osition doesn't appeal to him in tha
least. There are thousands of people, i
however, who would be properly indlg- !
nant If they were accused of being
gamblers, who every day take a chance
on the greatest gambling game in the
world. And worse than that, they are
risking their money on a "sight un-
When one of the thousands of per-
sons who build up and k p up the
great mail order houses of the country
sends his money away to pay for some
article that he has selected from the
mail order catalogue, he Is taking a
chance on getting what be expects to
get. The mail order house may be
perfectly honest and still the purchas-
er stands n good chance of not get-
ting what he expects to get. The mall ,
order catalogues are filled with pic-
tures that catch the eye. The de-
scriptions are brief, as they must be
when thousands, of articles are to be
described within the confines of one
book. No matter how hard the mall
order house might try to tell the truth,
the whole truth and nothing but the
truth, it would be an impossibility.
The buyer Is simply taking a chance.
Buying "Sight Unseen."
How much more satisfactory it Is
to walk Into a store in your home town
and ask to see an article which you
may have seen advertised In your
home paper. What would anyone
think «f your business ability or your
common sense If you walked into a
store at home and said: "I saw a
picture in the paper today of a suit
which I liked very much. Please wrap
i up one for me. Here's the money."
The merchant would think that you
were crazy, but that is exactly what
jrou do every time you send an order
to a mail order house. You buy "sight
unseen" and you haven't a ghost of a
chance of getting your money back If
I the article is unsatisfactory when it
How different is the proceeding
' when you go into the store in your
own home town to buy a suit of
clothes, or a stove or a yard of ribbon,
You may have seen a picture of it in
the merchant's advertisement in the
home paper and you know that, as the
merchant Is reliable, you can count on
the goods being as he represents them
in his advertisement. But does he ask
you to take his word for everything?
Does he hide the article behind the
counter and tell you that you can't
even see it until you buy it and pay
over the money for it? Hardly, if
the article Is not already in plain sight
on the counter, the merchant produces
It for your inspection. If it does not
exactly suit you, he has others that
are a little different and that he is glad
to have you Inspect.

Then, if it is a suit of clothes you
are buying, or a piece of dress goods
or n pair of socks, you may ask If the
merchant will guarantee that it will,
wear as long as an article of that kind
,could he expected to wear and he will
tell you either that he will guarantee
It or that he will not. If he tells you
that he will guarantee it you will know
that you will get your money back or
another suit or another pair of socks
In its place if it doesn't wear like it
should, for the merchant, besides be-
ing an honest man in most cases, can-
not afford not to make his word good.
He is dependent upon your business
and that of others in his own commu-
nity and he cannot afford to misrepre-
sent his goods.
After having all this opportunity to
ee what you are buying, you take your
suit or your stove or whatever It Is
you buy home or It is sent home for
you without any delivery charges, and
after you get home and take another j
look at it and decide you don't want
it after all, you send It back.
You are not buying something "sight
unseen" when you buy from your home
merchant. You don't look at n picture
of an article In a newspaper, read a
short description of It, go to the post
office and buy a money order nnd senjl
it to the merchant with the instruc-
tions, "Send me a suit of clothes"—or
a stove or whatever It may be—"and
I'll pay your delivery man 50 cents for
delivering It to me."
There's a world of difference In tha
two methods of doing business and Its
not hard to figure out which Is the best
J for the man who Is doing the buying.
