field are holding oat today for
(50, and confidently expect to force
'the buyers up to that figure before the
end of the week.
The price of $47.50 was announced
at noon today, a $1X0 raise over last
veek's price, but no sales at that had
been recorded up till three o'clock.
The producers are counting on the
strength of the spelter market, St
Louis spot was quoted at $7.05 yes
terday, with futures $7.40 to $7.65,
and the fact that a shortage of labor
and the holidays last week has ef
fected a distinct curtailment in the
production, for the past two weeks.
One sale at $50 was recorded yes
terday when the Laclede sold their
pile of 700 tons at that price. The
bonus was occasioned by the high
iron content, more than three percent,
of the ore.

forced to descend hurriedly where he

Woolworth tower or Forty-second
street and Broadway, or Brooklyn
Bridge, so far as the pilot's ability to
control his destiny was concerned.
He landed, got out and was ruefully
contemplating his machine. Up

of Patrolman John T. Shields.
"Hey, whatcha mean by tearing up
that grass?" queried the exponent of
law, order and flat feet "Cantcha

S. A. T. C. BARRACKS
TO HOUSE STUDENTS
Manhattan, Kan., July 14. It cost
the people of Kansas $80,000 to buy
the equipment required by the Stu
dent Army Training Corps- at the
Kansas State Agricultural College.
Tfc R A. T. C. lasted three months,
the boy soldiers were discharged and

erected at such an enormous cost in
comparison to the trival results ob
tained, were left vacant
' Jn ofter schools the buildings used
hv o.m S. A. T. C were junked and
the equipment placed on the market
and sold for a song. But the buildings
here were left standing and the equip
mint carefully stored, pending the
possible opportunity of utilising them.
Such an opportunity has now arisen.
The mess hall has been turned Into a
college dining room where students
may obtain regular board at a amau
figure. For the summer school we
cost is 80 cents' a meal, or $6 week,
when' the student Is aregular boarder.

barracks is to be rented to students of
small means, enabling them to obtain

OLCED TO TAKE (OE
Curious Traits In Human Nature Have
Made Possible Growth and Dsvel
pment ef the Great Mall
Ceprrichi. HIT, Western Newspaper Vnlea.)
A curious trait In human nature
makes ltuelf apparent very frequently.
That Is an Inclination to trust In the
unknown rather than In that with
which one Is familiar. A person Is
very apt to take a chance, even though
he may know that the odds are 100 to
one against him. Instead of being satis
fled with lesser rewards about which
there Is no possibility of doubt
It Is, possibly, the flaring up of the
ever-present gambling instinct but
there Is something more in It than that
There Is in It the unexplained ten
dency on the part of most people 'to
reach for the chimerical and Ignore
the tangible and substantial thing
which Is near at hand. Man Is sel
dom satisfied with those things that
are within his grasp but is reaching
always for the unattainable. Too ox
ten, he loses that which he might eas
ily gain by blindly pursuing that which
Is always Just out ot his reacn.
Why Con" Man Thrives.
Counted. In a way. with his faith ta
the unknown Is the tendency on the
part of so many people to place eev
fldenca In a stranger In preference to
one who Is known and has been tried
andnroven. It Is this tendency which
makes possible the operations of the
'con" man, the get-rich-qulck arusr,
the unscrupulous promoter and tner
salesman of worthless mining 'stocks.
The man who 'would not think ox
trusting Bill Jones, his next-door
nete-hhor and fellow church member.
will confidingly turn over his life's
savlccs to a stranger wno unxoius a
tain of riches to be won. Bill Jones
might talk bis head off In behalf of a
legitimate proposition wltnout getting
a dollar where the slick stranger with
the worthless proposition can get moo
sands. It la these two tendencies which, ap
narentlv. are so widely prevalent
among all classes of people that have
male possible tne success oi tne sv"
mall order nouses in tne Dig anes.
A knowledge of psychology Is as Im

Hope to Draw Prlxe.
Those who buy merchandise from a
mall order house are moved partly,
whether they realize It or not by tnat
trait In their nature which prompts
them to trust In tne nnanown raiuer
than in that with which they are fa
miliar. They are hoping, it may ne un
consciously, that they will draw a prize,
They do not know what they will get
for It Is Impossible tor one to snow
what he is going to get wnen ne or

a highly colored description in a cata

Rnvina- merchandise from tne local
merchant on the other hand, contains
none of these elements of chance that
enter Into the 'dealings with the mall
order house. When one buys a stove
from the hardware store In his home
town, he may get none of the thrills
that come from taking a chance but
he will get a stove that will last longer
and keep Him warmer wan uw tow

these things are likely to be more im
portant than the thrills.
Using Your Eyes.
When yon buy from the local mer
chant you see the thing that yon are
buying, yon Inspect It carefully, ex
amine the workmansnip ana tne qual
ity of the material of which It Is made
and In many cases you have the privi
lege of testing It before paying for It
Yon have not only your own eyes and
VnnwioriffA of values to rely upon, but
yon have the advantage of the advice
of the merchant wno nas an expert
k-nnviMim of the merchandise which
he Is selling and who, In 98 cases out
of 100, can be relied upon to ten uw
truth about It Then yon have the
guarantee that Is backed not only by
the retail merchant but In many cases
by the manufacturer. If the article
which Yon hnv does not prove satisfac
tory after It Is given a fair test yon
can take It back to the store where
yon bought It In most cases, and get
your money back. The retailer may
get his money back from the manu
facturer but if he doesn't he stands
the loss.. In any event yon ere pro

rather than in that which is tangible,
Is something that is nara to nnaer
tand. Even the mall order house does
not pretend to know why tt Is so tst
It accepts conditions as It finds tlca
and makes the most ot the epor
canities that they offer.
