THE MAN WITH THE BIG HOOK Lavishly pictured catalog'IBS of the mail order houses are the best bait used by these money-grabbers in digging up new "fisli" from among the great populace of towns where the unsophisticated fall prey. T.;e mail order house magnate has been likened to the fisherman who goes after anything he can get." He revels in the catch-of "suckers" that fall prey to his bait erery day in the year. The -public in this coninitmity should appreciate that the bait of the mail order house is pofsou from a commercial point of view, arid that the mail order catalogue should be sent to the garbage -heap immediately upon, its arrival. Thinking people that scrutinize the goods that are pictured in the catalogues can see at a glance that their home merchants can and will furnish merchandise far better than the mail order fisherman with the big hook. MORAL:--The catalogue hook is the mail order hook and the patrcvi is quickly termed the "sucker." A Great Combined Movement by Great People Will Secure a Phenomenal Boost for Yourself and THESE MERCHANTS. ZEttMERStAN-WliD COMPAXY Furniture, BURS, Stoves 154-15S Vi. Crawford Are. IV. X.
