AN OPEN COMMUNICATION
pected of reaping a rich profit froi his business, if he is aggressively afte business or appears to the users of h goods as prosperous. Manufacturers of beekeepers' supplies in cluding the G. B. Lewis Company ha been included in this category.
In fa many beekeepers' whose own profits an temporarily small are often wont to blam their troubles largely on the manufactur of beekeepers' supplies. Usually this done without malice, but too often wit out any consideration of the actual it creased costs of labor, raw materials sale and distribution expense in the pa decade.
SELLING & SHIPPING
WHO GETS THE DOLLAR YOU SEND US ?
As a matter of fact, every season in the past decade it might have been as profitable for the stockholders of the G. B. Lewis Company to have had their money invested in good safe 6 per cent bonds as in this Company. The effort of clipping coupons is negligible compared to the worries of running a big plant such as The Home of Lewis Beeware..
The above illustration shows the average annual profit to the stockholders of the G. B. Lewis Company for the past five years, and how the balance of every dollar received was otherwise spent as economically and purposefully as possible.
In presenting this information it would be interesting to have a statement from other manufacturers of beekeepers' supplies for a like period. Such figures would be particularly interesting in comparison with the workmanship of Beeware and the wonderful distribution facilities afforded American users of Lewis Beeware.
