Their main store, of which we present an illustration, is 65×110. Their warehouses, four in number, have a total capacity of 18,000 square feet, enabling them to buy largely in car lots, as in the mouth of May 1897 alone, they received 506.226 lbs. of merchandise. Their trade extends into Malheur, Harney and Grant counties, Oregon, and Washington and Owyhee Counties, Idaho, and their stock and prices enable any one to have the same opportunities they would have going to the largest mercantile centers.
