the edgermau to work satisfactorily.

Be Loyal to Your Town
The purchase of J10-00 worth ol
goodR from your own town instead
of purchasing outside means the addition of one person to your town
instead uf support ing him abroad.
It is never profitable to huy goods
from a catalogue because they are
cheap. Call on your town stores and
look nt the goods. Handle them, get
your merchant's stamp of approval
or guarantee on them and then yon
can be satisfied if the goods do not
tnin out right that you can take
them hack and either get another article or your money hack.
Vou are proud t.o show friends around the line stores in your town,—
what are you doing to support

chants to keep up the large stocks
they have bought to accommodate
