Saturday night we could not handle the crowd. In fact. March, April nnd so fnr in Mny has been wonderful trndc. I believe the bnlnncc of the season will be the best we have had tn years. It looks that way now. Good standard goods, low prices, straight forward dealing, bargains every day in the year is what brings customers to Algona. It Is like building a house, you lay one brick on another. It Is the sure way to build a lasting business. Schemes of all kinds are like cut flowers, they soon fade. Some of them are very silly. Honest values and real bargains are why people drive 30 and 40 miles to trade at certain stores. Algona hag the best trade territory of any city In Northern Iowa. Fort Dodge is the only one that has a trade territory equal to Algona and there is no reason why Algona is not as large as Fort Dodge. I would like to see four or five real bargain stores in Algona, even Montgomery Ward or Sears or Woolworth, anything fhat has some pulling power. This may seem queer talk for a merchant, but I am strong for Algona. With me it is Algona first and myself second. My interests are all in Algona. We have lots of long distance trade that buy what they want from us then load up and go home. This should not be. They should visit other stores and buy as much more. I even suggest to some of them to look around town. No matter who sells the goods just so the money is left in Algona. The common people outnumber the dudes 20 to 1. Common folks are not looking for high toned stores. They are looking for the most they can get for their money. More common stores will bring more common people to Algona. When treated right they spend their money cheerfully and always come back to where they get bargains. The few long-winded, supercilious high brows are no good to a merchant and very little help in building up a town. The farmer, the man with the dinner bucket * and the working girls are the people-that build up a town. Jimmie Nevilli THE SHOE MAN FARM LOANS Low Rate—20 years to pay.
