I Like Men
JVho Establish Pre
cedents Better Than
Men Who Follow Them
Business prospers most where
there are men inside the- or
ganization -who are not afraid
of something new, and backed
, by the power of their convic-
tions overcome obstacles within
as well as obstacles without
All battles are not won on the
firing; line. Much depends upon
the preparation beforehand.
Business battles waged against
competition are won by resort
ing to the unexpected the be
fore unthought of campaign that
showed in advance the logic of
the conclusions and had before it
only that one great big obstacle
the fact that it had never
been tried before.
Today the new thing the in
novation establishes the prece
dent that others will follow to
morrow. Those who establish pre
cedents, reap for themselves the
rewards that come to the man or
business first to seize the oppor
tunities in any virgin field.
Long years ago a progressive
department store proprietor con
ceived the idea that it was easier
to count dollars a. inventory
time than to count sheets, pillow
cases and what-not. He estab
lished the first Before-Inventory
sale. Nowadays nearly every
merchant is awake to the possi
, bilities of pre-inventory sales.
They are of benefit to the public
and to the merchant alike. The
former enjoy the lower prices
that are made as an inducement
for quick clearance. The latter
cleans out his stock instead of
rearranging it and recording so
many bolts of thisflnd so many
broken lots of that. But todav
there is lively competition along
this line and the mind of the
public is divided according to the
number of stores and the variety
of their offerings. In short,
when everybody is "doing it,"
the individual attraction is mini
mized. Truly "the early bird catches
the worm." And the parly idea
the idea we put into execution
while the other fellow is won
dering why his business does not
increase is the big idea. And
big ideas bring big results.

Col. L. C Downey, the depot quar

to be known as one of the greatest
red tape cutters In the army, with
Colonel Sherer as an able axlstant.
The War Department several months
ago decided to place under thee-: men

work In Washington. When these
two men were assigned to thl work
they found that the payment of rail
road and other accounts was many
months behind and that the processes
of settling them were so Involved that
the work would never be caught up.
They devised a scheme of cutting red
