THE HOME MERCHANT
The Home Merchant Who is he?
He Is the chap who gives you cre-
dit when you are financially broke,
and carries your account until you
are able to pay.
He in the chap who gives )ou
back your money or makes exchang-
es when you are not satisfied with
what you buy.
He la the chap who meets you at
the door with a handshake, and lets
you out with a message to the ‘kids’
and a real "come again" goodbye.
He la the chap whose clerks and
bookkeepers and other employes live
here in Pryor and spend their money
with you and with other local peo-
Ha is the chap who helps support
our churches and charitable organi-
tatlona, and talks for the home town
and boosts for it every day in the
He la the chap who visits you in
times of sickness, sends flowers to
your family when you die, and fol-
lows your body out among the trees
and tombs, as far aa human feet nun-
travel with the dead.
He la the Home Merchant—your
neighbor—your friend—your helper
in time of need.
Don’t you think you ought to do
your trading with him. und he his
friond and hia helper?
Don’t you realise that every dol-
lar that you tend out of town ror
merchandise Is sent to strangers—to
men who never spend a dollar here;
to men who would not trust you for
n box of matches?
You don’t save much, frequently
nothing, when you send your money
out of town for goods, and you take
all the risk of short weight or meas-
ure end of getting damaged or in-
And don’t you know that the pros-
perity and growth of this town de-
pends very largely upon the Huecess
and prosperity of the Home Mer-
chant? Out of town people Judge
our city by the appearance of our
stores, and by the degree of enter-
prise shown by our merchants.
And our home merchants cannot
succeed unless home folks give them

LETS PULL TOGETHER.
Every town should make the most
of ita advantages. Every town Is pe-
culiarly fitted for some one enterprise
more than another. As soon as It
ascertained what would be the most
conducive to the growth and pros-
perity of the place, the citizens
should take hold of the matter and
puah it for all It la worth
One man cannot make a town The
newspapers cannot do it. But the
newspaper with the wide-awake men
and women of the town all pulling
together can make a big difference
In a town
Every man who succeed* In a town

makes and spends in the town, the
