Gravity Independent (Newspaper) - August 29, 1907, Gravity, Iowa I An Independent Home Devoted to the Interests of its Supporters and the PubHs Paid for Borrowed by but Read by VOLUME XVI AUGUST 1907 NUMBER 51 Farmer on Tells home Merchants a Few Pointed A farmer reader of a local newspaper exchange rtiakes a few statements tn answer to the occasional articles that appear about the mail order He says If the mail order houses get out of this county each month that belongs to the the fault is with the merchant The mail order bouses advertise and give us prices on everything they offer for They tell us what they have and what they for Of course we get soaked once in a while and if we do we can try some other Most of the home merchants who advertise at all dont quote They neglect to tell us what we want to Of course we can go to the store and ask the price of this article and but you know how it one doesnt know so well exactly what he wants to buy as when he is at And is where the mail order houses make their They send their advertising matter into homes and we read it when we havent anything else to do and every member of the family who reads their stujf usually finds some thing that he or some other member ofthe familywants and many orders are made up and out jyjah Right here ifwTjere the home merchant If he talked up his business to us in our homes the same as the mail order houses the people would be in to see him the next time they came to town and in many cases extra trips would be made to get the things at once that we didnt know we wanted until they were brought to our The home merchant can save the expense of getting out a We people read the home papers more carefully than we do a and if the merchant wants to talk business with us let him put his talk in home papers and put it in so that we know he means The home merchant nine times out of ten sells his goods as cheap as the mail order and I believe on many things they are much but how are we to know it if he doesnt tell us about it It is none of my business how the home merchant runs his but I dont like to see these roasts in the papers all the time about us fellows who get a little stuff
