with you,  please: We are such unassuming people we fear our modesty has prevented us from
proclaiming to the public, what our customers have known for many years, the fact that our
goods have been the standard of excellence for more than a quarter of a century.  That old
adage, "by their work ye shall know them" seemed to be sufficient in former years, but in
these busy days, if we expect to retain the reputation we have held so long, and guarded so
jealously, we must not only make the best Goods, but must let the Dealer and Consumer know
that we are doing so.  Lest we weary you, we will speak briefly, not of ourselves, but of a
few of our Candies that have not only helped to establish the reputation of which we are so
proud, but have aided Chicago in achieving the distinction of being the Great Candy Center.
(followed by three pages of candy descriptions) Always look for the Trade mark, and if it
is on the box you will know you are getting the best…..BUNTE, SPOEHR & CO. 139 and 141 West

CASE, J. Merton
Began new business -- the selling out of candy wagons and routes -- "this year" (late

business with them, and advertise to sell out his horse, wagon and route, having a new
wagon built to be ready to start again just as soon as he got a customer for the one he was
running.  Mr. Case made quite a profit in this way and sold out a great many routes,
extending over several years.  It got to be so well known to every confectioner in the
business, manufacturers, jobbers and retailers that it was not an easy mater for him to
sell  out, as dealers informed the would-be purchasers what they were buying.  Of the many
routes he sold out but three buyers are now in business --  L. PELLES, Joseph B. HELLMAN
and John L. DICKHAUT ." 1905
