The cover of a mail-order cata-
ogue often shows an engraving of
the firm’s business premises. As a
rule, the building is large - much
arger than any store in Pryor.
Reasoning loosely, a reader might
conclude that he would get a wider
selection by patronizing a mailorder
house. The size of the catalogue
conveys the same idea.
The mail-order house caters to the
whole United States, and offers
everything from fish-hooks to pea-
nuts. So the catalogues are bulky.
The peanuts are neither better nor
more varied than those sold in Pryor
though we may not find fish-hooks
and peanuts in the same store. Each
separate line of goods maintains as
high a quality as those hauled from
four hundred miles away.
The mail-order house catalogue
compiler knows his business, but he
doesn’t know Pryor. Every retailer
on Main Street knows a bunch of us
by our first names. It is their busi-
