These comparisons suggest that at
any time and on most any sandard
lines, there is considerable variation
in prices, often as much as 25 per

chandise to standardize prices.
Some merchants buy more expertly
than others. Some take more pains
than others o look out for specially
good lots. There are always oppor
tunities to buy at a reduction for men
who can lay down cash.
Newspaper advertising tells thc
story of what individual mierchanics
have been able to accomplish for
their customers. Those that have
found something of unusual value
commonly disposed to tell the public

credit for the bargain they give, and
would not sell it much faster than
stores that offered it for a high price.

WHAT TO LEARN.
There are four things in life which
we ought to learn. Here they are:
1. Learn to laugh. A good laugh:
is better than- medicine.
2. Learn how to tell a helpful
story. A well told story is as wel
come as a sunbeam in a sick room.
3. Lear.n to keep your troubles
to yourself. The world is too busy
to linger over your ills and sorrows.
4. Learn to stop croaking. If
you cannot see any good in this
world keep the bad to yourseiF.
