IMAIL-ORDER SYSTEM EVIL
(Kow Chicago Man Made Immense For
tune at the Expense of Small
Communities Everywhere.
A merchant prince died in Chicago
^and left $15,000.000 to his heirs, every
?cent of which was made tn the mail
-order business.
We would not dispute the dead
iman's honesty or criticise him for
imaking this fortune in a manner that
!is certainly legitimate. But whence
idid these millions come, and from
?whose poverty grew his wealth? asks
tthe Richmond Times-Dispatch.
The answer is the familiar indict
ment of the mail-order business as lt
'has developed in Chicago. From men
and women who were lured by attrac
tive pictures to pay retail prices plu3
the heavy cost of carriage from Chi
cago; from people who searched the
.pages of catalogue and would not en
vier stores of their own towns, where
.'the same goods at the same price
were sold; from buyers who sent to
.Chicago merely to give their pur
chases that distinction begotten of
distance-from these came the mu
llions that made the great mail-order
?king.
If the evil ended here we should re
Igret the stupidity of a certain class
.of purchasers and stop at that. But
I the fortune of the mail-order kings
is gained at the expense of progress
lin rural communities scattered over
tthe continent
Here is the case: The little coun
. (try merchant puts In his stock,
Ibought of merchants in his owa state.
He buys the best, and intends to sell
lt honestly and at a fair profit He
.waits. His cheaper goods are sold
?and his staples are purchased. But
'his dress goods fade on the shelves
and his farming implements rust In
,his storeroom. His neighbors buy of
ihim only what they must; their larger
! purchases are made from Chicago
mail-order houses. The merchant is
?forced to sell what his customers will
purchase; those who have helped to
Iruin him criticise the paucity of hie
(stock.
The Chicago mail-order bui.ir.esa
(cripples the local merchant. It limits
'the stock of the stores. It builds up
?great fortunes and a single city, at
?the expense of those who would pro
(claim progress the country over.
POSltlON Or^STREEt TREES
[Writer Comes Forward With a New
Idea Which at Least ls Worth
Some Consideration.
Had the writer the privilege and
[pleasure of planting a townsite and
framing the laws governing street
.trees, their planting, preservation and
?care, he would have no parkway next
to the curb, but would have it on the
Inside of the sidewalk, next to th*
property line. This would give the
i street a broader appearance, put the
[trees out of reach of wires, of horses,
rchange the street grade, away from
?many ills. It would place them where
?more air, food and water could reach
.the roots at all times and allow ol
?their retaining branches lower down
.than ls possible where they are close
[to the curb and obstructing free pass
age of horseB end vehicles.-L09 An
geles Times.
Women Like This Man.
j Women like a man who under
j stands their clothes. They may dress
?for each other-and it is quite a fal
lacy to suppose that they dress for
?men, still they do like a man who has
fa feminine touch or two about him.
[**A man who has a medal with three
[clasps and understands the cut of a
(Skirt is God's last word in men."
The very nicest women fail terri
'bly with neckties, and they may know
,no more of trousers beyond the fact
ithat they are customary, in the mat
'ter of hosiery I found her to be
?sound. When she rejected the socks
ithey were "selling" I knew her for a
.toman in a thousand. "The things
ithat are 'selling' are the things one
doesn't buy," she remarked to the
?man who was serving me, and I very
nearly cheered. There are women in
(Existence-and nice women, too-who
would have made me buy socks that
looked like summer blouses.-From
'"The World's Daughters."
Motto for Civic Workers.
Improvement societies and similar
bodies working for the general good
of all should adopt a characteristic
motto, not alone to print upon their
stationery, but one that will serve to
keep in mind the purposes for whicb
the organization was formed. The fol
lowing strongly appeals as peculiarly
Utting:
Tor the cause that lacks assistance.
Against the wrong that needs resistance,
For the future In the distance.
And the good that we can d. ?.

Fertilizer ammoniated with Fish-Scrap is universally
admitted to be the plant food best suited to the cot
ton crop.
This is not a theory, but a fact proven by the experience of many.
The popularity of Royster's, the original and genuine fish-scrap
fertilizer has caused a host of brands to appear with fish in the
name: if you want to be sure of getting fish in the goods as well,
be sure to buy the brand th?t made fi^h-scrap famous; F. S. R.
If you are not already acquainted wich the splendid results from
ROYSTER'S fish-scrap fertilizer, we simply ask that you test it
alongside any other brand and abide by the proven results.
