Testing eyes ia a distinctly professional
work. True, it must be done before
properly fitted glasses can be secured.
But at Clinton's the professional side
is above the mercantile side.
Our optornetriot does not think of
selling n pair of glasses, but of
learning exact eye conditions. If
these do not make glasses advisable,
ho says so. And you can rely on his
advice. Let him examine your eyes.

WE WILL SELL
For Cash Only
READ THE REASONS
Your, own welfare is always the thing that deserves, your
most careful consideration. Upon you men and women,
as heads of your families, lies the responsibility of con
ducting your business in such a manner that will give to those
dependent upon you the greatest possible amount of comfort.
In making the change in our business method, which we
are now announcing to you, we have had this thought clear
ly before us. In any business there are three important and
essential factorsthe producer, the seller and the consumer.
The most important factor in any business is the consumer,
the man who uses the goods; He therefore deserves our
most careful attention.
$$tlAs a merchant's interests are very closely associated with
his customer's interests and of the general interest of the com
munity in which he lives and earns his bread and butter.
It will also be readily-seen that a merchant canrprosper only
in proportion to the good service that he renders. After a
very careful consideration of the subject and a thorough in
vestigation of the many communities where it has been tried,
together with an observation of conditions extending over
many years, we have reached the conclusion that:
Cash Business is Better for the General
Good of the Community than Credit Business
THE REASONS ARE VERY PLAIN.
(1) Credit 1ms ruined many more peo
ple thnn it has helped. People have estab
lished a reputation for being good pay
have been able to buy on credit at any
store nnd as a result have overheached
(2) It is very plain that a Cash Sys
tem will benefit the entire community by
putting it upon a conservative basis. If
every family pays as it goes there will al
ways bo money in the ffnmily exchequer"
to meet tho emergencies which continually
arise in our lives.
(3) A Cash System will give every
man an honest chance, it will compel every
man to stand four squaro to tho world ex
actly as he is and give him n feeling of
independence which only the Casli Man
There is absolutely no question about
his being able to become more prosperous
and carry a bigger bank account under
such n system. Ho will know every night
exactly what ho-is worth and like tho "vil
lage blacksmith" of our school day fame,
"Look tho whole world in tho face, for ho
owes no man anything." It will entirely
oliminato from tho minds of us all tho
thought that "pay day docs not come tin
til tomorrow and tomorrow is a long way
We had thought of discussing this
question with you from the merchant point
of view as. well as from the customer's but
after a thorough discussion among our
selves we have been unable to discover a
single instance where the merchant's in
terest is different from that of the customer.
Wo aro all living together in the same
community. We all help support our pub
lic utilities, our schools and our good roads.
Wliat benefits one, must in some degree
nt least, benefit tis all. It is good for us
all that wo nil prosper. While many peo
ple have tho idea that every merchant has
a fat bank account, tho reverse is true, at
least in our case. By changing this system
many important improvements can be made
(1) It will save tho merchant a large
part of his expense in doing business. There
will no longer be any forgotten charges to
account for at the end of tho year when wo
figure profits nnd loss, there can be no
errors in Cash transactions.
(2) 'It will enable the merchant to be
a better buyer. Cash talks loud in the mar
kets of tho world. There is nothing that
makes such tempting noise ns good old Un
do Sam's coin, the supreme standard by
which all the values in the world is now
We appeal to you as intelligent, ambitious business men and women to take the samo and
unselfish view of tho question and give it your most careful consideration. Wo believe it is for
tho general good of tho community at large, for the money you will save in our CASH
STORE Avill more than make up the little inconveniences which may arise at the time being.
Wo believe that our stand is just and right. Thero aro some merchants in our city who aro
skeptical and would like to take this action but havn't tho nerve, so join with us as wo havo
always united with you in a spirit of earnest co-operation and let tis all pull together to de
velop tho "Pay as you go" system and raako North Platto tho most prosperous community in
all this prosperous state. Our children will then developo into better men nnd women, our
homes will bo brighter, a GREATER SPIRIT OP CONTENTiArENT WILL PREVAIL AND
WE AVILL ALL BE MORE HAPPY.
