When you send your money to a
mail order house, you give a stab at
your home merchant. These cata-
logue houses do not bnv your butter,
eggs, garden stuff, beef cattle, grain
or hay. They don't pay a cent of
taxes in this county. If a home
dealer should tell the producer to go
to Kansas City or Chicago to sell his
stuff, what a bowl we would hear!
Vet that is what he deserves. If a
farmer or resident of the town needs
, | goods <>f a different quality than is
° carried here, tell your home dealers
about it and they will be only too
glad to get it for you, and iu most
cases at lower prices than you would
pay elsewhere. In some grades the
demand is so limited our merchants
can hardly afford to carry them; but
there are the thousand and one
things the people need—from potato
knives to buggies, from riblsnis to
clothing—which too many people
buy from catalogue houses and trav-
eling dealers, which should lie bought
right here in Jones. When you want
credit do you get it from the mail
order houses? Do they hold you up
and furnish everything you need un-
til potato, corn ami cotton money
come in? We guess not. You gel
what you pay tor—these unheard <
bargains, these worlds eye-opener
do no realise aftey your money goes
to the owner of the seductive cata-
logue. Listen now! We are talking
sense. Your only way to build up
your town and the surrounding coun-
try is to support your home dealers.
When you farmers want money to fix
a piece of I Sid road or a bridge, Who
helps you? Sears, Roebuck & Co?
Not on your life. The dealers right
here in Jones put up the money.
This is a new conutry yet and much
has to be done at private ex|s'iise.
