The newspapers of the stale have
a deal to say these dnys about mail
order houses and the baneful in
fluence they exert upon local busi
ness. No one conversant with the
operations of these concerns would
patronize them, but unfortunately
not everyone understands their
methods, or is willing to do a little
thinking to figure it out for them
selves. To begin with, a mail
order house may or may not carry
a stock of goods, generally an office
and a desk are all that arc required.
A catalogue, with a description of
goods easily obtained, then they are
ready for the Rubes. Catalogue
houses do not try, with few excep
tions, lo do business through cata
logue in the town where they are
located, fur the reason that 110 one
wants out of date merchandise, at
high prices quoted, so the people
who read the alluring descriptions,
and failing to get the figures of the
local merchant, bite nnd bite hard.
For example: An article weigh
ing one pound, and costine 25 cents
and postage, costs 25 cents, postage
15 cents, money order fee 3 cents,
letter postage 2 cents, letter paper
and envelope, time and effort to
wrile letter, say 6 cents, a total of
a little more than double the price
advertised. Figure it out for your
self. Take a catalogue, select any
article, and by charging all costs,
remembering time is money, and
you are entitled to pay for letter
writing, and you will make the as
tounding discovery that it costs
more than at first appeared and
a big sum more, in proportion,
than your local dealer asks for the
The glamor is in sitting down
and reading and taking for grant
ed all is true as read. Experience
has come to many, but the publi
cation of the fact that one has been
"soaked" is not in the order of
things, the proper etiquette seems
to lay low and give another an op
portunity to be likewise "soaked".
It happens that the local dealer
may be mistaken as to the quality
in a certain article, it does not come
up to representation and of course
you have been willfully "soaked".
Do you keep quiet? not on your
! life! You proceed most energeti
cally to get even with "that
scoundrel". You bet? Now com
pare the two; your local dealer who
needs your patronage, and the mail
order house to whom one sucker
more or less is n matter of supreme
indifference there's one born every
In the battle of Mukden between
the Russian and Japanese forces,
the Russian losses were said to
amount to 90,000 men. During
the year ending June 30, 1904, the
casualties on American railroads
amounted to exactly 94,201.

Sumo of the Tributes of the I.ntc
Dr. A. Irwin said that Mr.
Ilumburg was successful in so far
as he managed to keep out of jail.
He had misgivings as to his success
in Honolulu, but advised him that
if he got into trouble to skip to
Hilo where there was no police
force. Chairman Moir with the
rest of the company appreciated the
Judge Parsons said in Ihe course
that he regretted that there was no
Ilumburg homestead on Ilalai Hills
or some other prominent location
that might become a famous land
mark and referred to by future
generations as the Old Ilumburg
Mr. J. E. Metcalf said he felt
that he would be the gainer by Mr.
Humburg's departure and now had
some prospect of occasionally win
ning in a game of bridge whist.
In the com so of his speech R. A.
Lucas said the frog business was
dull and he was contemplating
sending a shipment to the Hono
lulu Brewery as they were short of
hops down there.
While Mr. Garvie was telling a
story on John Watt and relating
incidents in a flume ride in which
he was saloon passenger and the
latter in steerage until he fell over
board, the quintette club began to
sing one of their favorite pieces,
which sounded like "you lie." The
effect was ludicrous and a good op
portunity given Mr. Watt to re
taliate on the speaker.
Mr. Castendyk in his cork pulling
song displayed some talent that sur
prised many at the dinner.
Mr. C. C. Kennedy caused sonic
merriment when he said he watched
the young men of the town, and
had noted Mr. Humburg's career
in Hilo. Some of the funny ones
suggested that he needed watching.
' Mr Kennedy, however, insisted
; that 011 all occasions he found him
1 to be a good citizen and a shrewd
business man whose judgment was
sound on all commercial matters.
In your dress do not consider
your circumstances nor your tailor;
only put 011 good clothes. It is
important also to distinguish sex -otherwise
you might get into the
wrong seat. Clothes are the fust
great prineipal-they show the dil
ference between a hobo and the
Four Hundred. You can get the
right kind at the Economic. Do
