Farmers believe every word in the
big catalog of the mall order house,
ccordlug to Ablbert, C. Loeb, vice
president and treasurer of Sea, Roe
bock A Co., who recently told n rep
resentative of the American Lumber
man, Chicago, some of the reasons
contributing to the success of the mall
order Institution of which he Ih one of
4he ofllclals and lending (.tockholders.
When Mr. Loeb told how the farmers
gulp down what Ih printed In the tnnil
order catalog, he chuckled. Ills ex
pression was much like the vender of
patent medicines who, after selling
three or four dozen bottles of colored
water at II each on the public; square
of some country town, tins the driver
whip up the horses nnd make a quick
getaway. The medicine fakir gloats
because lie found so many dunes on
the publio square of thu country town;
'Mr, Loeb laughed when he told how
the farmers believe every word in the
catalog his concert) furnishes them
"Wc could make 81,000,000 more a
ytar it we Bold electric belt9, but we
don,t sell them," said Mr. Lcoh
'"JVikes, you know. And what is
more if wc did sell them the belts
-would cure, yes, absolutely cure. Why
do you know that if Scars, Roebuck &
Co. sold electric belts to the farmers we
would get thousands of beautiful test!
uonials telling what a marvelous bene
fit they were; how the writers weie so
near the grave before wearing the belts
aod how after wearing them the all
incut enthely disappeared. There
would be lots 'of prollt In these belts,
perhups 400 per cent."
"Now why would these belts cure?"
"Why? Simply because the farmers
believe every word in our catalog; yes,
they believe every word," answered the
jnail order magnate.
Here is n picture of what the ofllclals
of the largo mall order houses think
of the people of this nnd every other
community who send money to them
for the mail order merchandise.
Though Mr. Loeb doesn't say It in so
many words, it Is evident he believes,
like the medicine fakir, "suckers" are
to be found in every community. Cer
tainly he has a very cheap opinion of
the farmers who buy of bis house.
What person in this community would
buy of any local merchant who would
bave the audacity to come out and
publicity brand them "easy marks"?

The Satisfaction of
Being Well Dressed
To be well dressed is largely a matter of taste and not so
much a matter of money.
What you buy counts more than
what you pay for it.
To exercise taste you must have room for choice among tasteful
things. You must have opportunity to express your individuality,.
And that is exactly what we give our customers in our
large assortment of summer dress goods including ratines,
corded figures, embroidered voiles, silk stripe
