Geo. Boyd was visiting in Wichita, Sunday. Spend Your Money At Home.

Here are too perfectly good reasons why people should spend their money at home. Of course there are many others, but we believe the truth is well set out in the following; 1. It is your home, you can't improve it much by sending your money away to spend or invest. 2. There is no way of improving a place so much as by encouraging good merchants, good people to settle among you, and this cannot be done unless you spend your money at home.

3. Spend your money at home. Because there is generally where you get it. 4. Spend your money at home.

It will make better merchants of your merchants; they can and will keep better assortments and will sell at lower rates than If the only business you could do is what is credited; not while the money goes to the other places. 5. Spend your money at home. You may have sons growing up who will some day be the best merchants in town. Help la the foundation for that now.

6. Spend you money at home. Set the example now. Buy your dry goods, groceries, shoes, meat and everything, at home and you will see a wonderful change in a short time in the business out look of the place, therefor deal with your home merchants. 7.

Spend your money at home. What do you gain by going off? couut the cost and see what you could have done at home by letting the merchant have the cash. Strike the balance and see if you would not have been just as well off', besides helping your home merchant and your home community. 8. Spend your money at home.

Your merchants are your neighbors, your friends; they stand by you in sickness; they are your associates, without your trade they cannot keep up their business. 9. Spend your money at home. You will feel better toward your neighbors and yourself; you will have the satisfaction of knowing you haye been loyal to your friends and neighbors; you will have speht your money where some of it is sure to come back to you, which would not be the case if you sent it away. 10.

Merchants should also spend their money at home, they should do their advertising at home. Tney should get their bill heads, circulars, cards, letter heads, envelopes and all printing done at home, of their own newspapers who aid them in many ways and advertise them hundreds of times without any Mr. and Mrs. Robt.
