These discounts may js�rha|>s not amount to a great deal on each purchase, but at the end of a year they aggregate a considerable sum, one which is worth v bile getting, says the St. Paul Trade .Journal. Hesldes, the advantage of getting these discounts, the prompt payment, of your bills gives yua a gotaj standing with the jobber, and If you should ever need credit it will not he dillicult for you to obtain it, whereas it you are in the habit of letting your accounts run asJong as pus -sible, it does not spcuk well for your business acumen or financial 'pros|icrity. Always pay your bills Just as soon as possible. It is better to buy a smaller quantity of goods at a time and pay caah for them, thereby getting the discount, than lo purchase la larger amount and have to i credit. get s pos TO WOIIIIY THK UMI'tflK. Themcrchant who discounts hlsbllls c*in sell cheai>er, and consoi|uently get more trade, than the merchant who lets the bill run as long a sible and loses the discount. Wholesalers and Jobbers offer discounts which are very attractive in order to g*t their bills paid promptly, and merchants should never lose the opportunities offered them, if at all possible. This is a good argument 1" use with your customers when trying to conduct a strictly cash business. Tell them that if they pay cu*h for their purchases, j on ran do the same, thereby getting the discount and enabling you to sell choajier. Appeal to thffir business sense, and they will realize this, and you will not have so much trout V in establishing your uslness on a cash basis. CHKRIIS FOil BOTHA.
