Okanagan Centre,   B.   C* cana da.
.Dear 3ir:~
We are in receipt of your favor of recent date with enel
cloBure of $14*20, for which we thank you,
Goods to the value of $12*50 went £orw< rd hy  0* P. 3R#
freight on the 3rd inst*. the Charges on which were $2*67, mahing
a tot 1 of $15*17, which leaves a "balance of 97d, due us.  hardly remit this amount at your earliest convenience and oblige*
On the other side of this sheet are given the Freight
and Express ^°  Okanagan landing*   You will notice that the
minimum freight charge 1b $2*49, that is to aay? no goods ©an
be sent by freight to Okanagan landing for leae than $2*49*
T7hen goods are shipped at a rate lower than 1st Class, it is ao¥
visable to make up an order a little over 100 lbs., to get the
full advantage of the minimum charge.  For instance 130 lbs. of
bacon could have been sent for the same none:: . Dear Customer:-
We cannot emphasize too strongly the advisability of making up orders
of 100 pounds, or over, and having them shipped by freight--freight orders
should never weigh less /~\n 100 pounds; for goods vfj.ghing less cost just
as much to ship, and we w ,nt you to get the full advantage of charges.  In
the majority of cases for^the amount it costs to send 20 or 30 pounds
express, 100 pounds can be forwarded by freight.  The lowest charge for
which any freight shipment can be sent is 50c, even when the  1st class
freight rate is less than this amount.
Should you not be able to make up your order of 100 pounds from our
General Catalogue—write for our Special Grocery Price List.  This contains
all that is good, pure and wholesome in groceries.  The quality we recommend—the prices speak for themselves.
You can save money on every article bought from us; our liberal
guarantee shows the confidence we have in our goods.  Kindly refer to paragraph "K» on the colored insert of our General Catalogue, which fully
explains how any goods that on arrival are not entirely satisfactory, may
be returned at our expense, when we will cheerfully and willingly exchange
for other goods, or refund money, as desired.  Our assurance is given that
your order will receive prompt attention in being filled, packed and shipped.
A Trial Order shipped by freight will fully convince you of the saving
which can be made in purchasing your supplies from us.
