A Retail Dealer is Necessary to your Welfare!
The Advantage of Spending Your
Money at Home.
Every one ha* the right to buy where he can*get the moat for
his money. That “most” iueludss quality, price—as well as promp
ness in receiving the article purchased.
If it is a question of pyrcliaaiiig in or out of your home town,
there is one more consideration.
All other things being equal, buying at home is to your perso-
nal interest—for every dcllur spent at home increase* tlie prosperity
of your own community ; while every dollar you send away helps
to build schools, churches, streets, parka, for some other town.
In many ca-es, after you pay the freight etc , the goods bought
out of town cost you mors than similar articles purchased at home.
Then, too, in buying bore you see.-aiul examine—and if you
desire, iry oiff the article before you buy. You know exactly what
yon are getting, because you see the article itself and not just a
picture of it.
We sell and recommend “Star Brand” (all leather) shoes be-
cause we have implicit confidence in them. They are made by the
world’s largest Shoe manufacturers—in all grades, styles and prices
Buying from us and other home town merchants will pay you—
both in inony saved and satisfaction in your purchases And it
means added prosperity and growth for y< ur community. Isn’t it
wort it considering? »
