THE NORTH PLATTE SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE
You buy a simple article and
tho prlco makes you gasp
"Who's getting tho big profit?"
you ask. "I'm not," replies the
retailer, and ho points to the
wholesaler; tho wholesaler to
tho jobber; tho jobber to the
manufacturer, and tho manu
facturer to tho laborer.
Tho samo old chain, with a
profit on every link. Is all
business liko that? Must we
pay two, three or four profits

No indeed. Here is your gas
company selling you serylcc;
delivering gas direct from tho
plant, right to the 'point of use
in your homo, witllout middle
men or middlemen's profits, and
with ovary item of its cost reg
ulated by your trusted repre
sentatives. And seldom indeed does the
profit exceed 8 on tho money
actually invested. Frequently
it is less.
