THE DAILY flttEE PRESS i MONEY'S WORTH Natural Desire Is Not to Get the . Worst of Any Business iu. Transaction, CHEAPEST NOT, ALWAYS BEST I Peraon Who Buy* From Catalogue • t House Sees Only the Price and' Forget* That Value I* Thing •"»*••»•—_>^ (Copyright.).^ i 'When you spend-your/, money- naturally want to get all yon can In return. No one can criticize, you for having that desire. Only those who are commonly referred to as having "nsore money than sense" throw their money away. All others are careful to see that they do not get- the worst of any bargain. * But ona has to be able to look farther than-the-end of his 'nose If he Is to be-sure that he Is'get- 4ing tue ; most that he can get for his money. That Is the defense of the man who trays from the mall order house instead of patronizing the merchants In his "own town. He says he can get more lor his money when he buys from the mall order man than when he spends Ills money at home. But in arriving at that conclusion he certainly has not been able to look further than the end of his nose. In most cases the man who buys goods from a- mail order house does so because h'e thinks he is getting the goods for less money than he would !have to pay for them, at the store in ils own town. He thinks he is look- Ing out for .No. 1 and he says it is .not his fault If the merchant in his town cannot make any money and is forced to go out of business. He overlooks the fact ,that he is likely to be as hard hit as anyone else when that merchant closes his doors' but, leaving, that probability out of consideration, the chances are about 10 to 1 that ^the buyer has really lost money on his deal -with the mail order man. Price Not 'Only Consideration. . ' If buying an article .of any kind, whether it be a house and lot or a pa:per-of-pins, the price Is not the only •thing to be considered by any means. .Von are not in the habit of going into 'ft store when you want to buy a suit of 'Clothes and saying to the storekeeper: "Give me the cheapest suit of clothes [you have in the house." You want the 'best suit of clothes you can get for the •price you pay for it, but you don't •usually want the cheapest thing you '*4n find. A man may delude himself Into be- ilievlng that when he buys a suit of ^clothes from a mail order house for -jflO he is saving money, but what is •there to justify him in such a belief 5 ;The mere fact that he is getting a suit for $10 does not mean that he is sav- •Ing money. The chances are that if ;he should go to the man who runs the • 'clothing store in his own town and ^ask for it he could get a suit of clothes ior $10 and the chances are also that ;it would .be just as good if not a bet{ter bargain than the suit which'he ,«6u5d get from the' mail order house ttoi the same sum. It is not the price '.be pays that shows whether he is get:Ung a bargain or not. It !s the qual- goods that Me gets for his money counts. . .-••-' Can' Undersell Mail Order House.

It is to be hoped that prices to the consumer for farm foods will be brought down. But at the same time the 'farmer cannot suffer a loss on'his production. He must make a profit also."
