Notwithstanding tho rumors boing
circulated by unprincipled porsons the
"S. & H." Grcoif Stamps are hero to
slay. Tho people felt North Platte and
vicinity should onloy the snmo rights i
and privileges of thoso In hundreds ofi
other cities. I leave It to the fair jltdg-:
ment n: 'no people of North Plntte to,
say whettier any set of merchants j
should have any right to dictate tnyj
prollt with my customers through the;
"S. & II." Green Stamp plan or any
other plan I may choose.
Before adopting the "S. & H." Green
Stamp plan I thoroughly investigated
it. 1 found it to be In popular favor
all over tho country. The Green
Stamp Is In practically overy city of
importance In the United Sjtates. This
plan nas long hecn estaulshed in ninny
cities in Nebrnska including Hastings,
Grand Island, York, Omnha, Lincoln,
Beatrice, Kearney and ninny others.
Thousands of people arc enjoying the
privilege of this profit sharing plan In
tho foregoing cities. Why should not
tho people of North Platto and vicin
ity enloy the same privilege?
Not ninny months ago Mr. Ford of
tho Ford car fame announced that he
would divide his profits with Ills cus
tomers. It is truo this announcement
enhanced the sale of Ford cars. It Is
equally true that Mr. Ford has a per
fect right to adopt this method of in
creasing his business. Somo narrow
minded peoplo havo taken exceptions
to his progressive methods, yet I ven
ture that theso exceptions will never
outweigh tho advertising effect of Mr.
Ford's thousands of pleased .custom
ers. Tho "S. & II." Stamp plan though
different In form Is essentially the
same in theory., By giving the stamps
I also increase my trade that I enn
well afford to uso this method of di
viding my profits.
When any one speaks against tho "S.
& H." Green Stamp plan of profit
sharing you will , do well to question
their motives. You will invariably
find a traco of selfishness In them.
This is no contest or game of chanco
like the public lias been faked with.
Thousands of tickets or votes were giv
en with purchases and one person
walked off with the prlzo while the
rest held the sack.
Everyone who snvo stamps lias only

second lloor and select their choice
from thousands of valuable premi
ums. The parlor is open for your in
spection at all times. All premium'
plainly marked so you can know at
all times just what you can get.
In closing I want to say that I have
boon in business horo for 23 years with
a clean record of which I am firoud. I
havo done my share towards the,up-
uuiiuing or tins community ami i tin
ly expect to continue. In all my un
dertakings I havo mado a success and
I have put my shouder to tho wheel
to make tho "S. & II." Stump a sue
